It’s time to seize the day! Today is Day One of Phase Two of the Live Hard program created by Andy Frisella. I’ve felt a bit scattered the last couple of weeks and I believe this program will help refocus me and help me achieve that next level in life and business. I believe that sometimes I have to abruptly shift my path to reboot and refocus. 

Once I finished Phase One, I immediately stopped the two workouts a day and I didn’t follow the blood type diet quite as strictly. I definitely needed a little break. But I also found that eventually, I started giving in just a little bit more by being less committed to healthy eating. 99% of the time, I was drinking over 100 ounces of water a day, but I saw that I slipped from that gallon goal to compromising. I justified that 102 ounces was enough for that day. 

Have you ever experienced something like this? You are in the flow and you have a great rhythm but then that time period ends and you give yourself a little break, which is often needed. Instead of going back in after the break, you justify yourself doing a little bit less and a little bit less. It can be a slippery slope if you don’t catch it quickly. You start saying to yourself, tomorrow I will start again. Whether you have said this or you have heard a friend or family member say something similar, you know what I’m talking about. It’s the, “I’m starting my diet tomorrow” and you hear that every weekend before Monday rolls around. As soon as Monday arrives, there is always some excuse. Or maybe you hear, I hate my job and I need to start looking for that next opportunity but instead of hearing about the new possibilities, you keep hearing the same sad, negative story about hating the job. 

Seize the Day!

eize the Day!Today, I decided that I’m not going to let myself slide down a slippery slope! Today, I am starting Phase Two after completing Phase One in early July! I encourage anyone reading this article to look at your own life. Is there something in your life that feels like it’s on a slippery slope, a path that you don’t want to travel? Shake it up! Change the pattern! Do an abrupt about face. Believe in you and believe you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to doing!
