    Success Is Not Microwavable

    Success Is Not Microwavable

    “Your body is not Amazon Prime. It does not show up in two days”.

    In context it was meant to take a jab at fad dieting. However upon greater reflection the expectation of near instant gratification plagues us in many ways not just with regards to our eating habits.

    We live in a digital age where we are surrounded by what appear to be overnight success stories.

    We have expectations of starting venture, whether it be fitness, business, or personal, and having it come to fruition without struggle. We expect to see a road paved with gold sooner rather than later. I mean I a saw it on Shark Tank or Instagram, how hard could it be? It worked for them why won’t it work for me?

    What we don’t see is the countless nights without sleep, hours spent training, the multiple failures, and endless amounts of determination that went into making the dream take flight.

    Beating Yesterday

    How do you continually keep giving more effort?

    Beat yesterday. It’s been a phrase we’ve used frequently this year with Compete Every Day. The idea of doing more than we did yesterday is a key component on the road to success. It’s a simple phrase but a challenge we can all take on each morning.

    Some days are harder than others. We don’t know how we can match the prior’s energy level or output, and struggle to even catch our breath. Life knocks us down. That’s inevitable. Some days we do not win. However, the idea of being better than yesterday continues on – if we choose to keep competing.

    The days we are knocked down are easy to rebound from – if we choose to get back up and keep going. The days we struggle to get by can be overcome the following – if we consciously decide that the new day is a new day, leaving the old behind us.

    Intentionally focusing on giving a better effort each and every day is something most people don’t take the time to do or don’t care to. They are “ok” with things as they are, floating through life, day after day. But not you.

    Like you, I desire something more from my life. I realize I only get one shot at today – and I better make it count. So I am intentional in my plan, my words, and my actions – doing everything in my power to give a better effort in my work, my relationships, & my life pursuits. You and I both share that mindset – and that’s why we are competitors.

    But what if you’re struggling to take steps toward daily improvement? Each week I implement specific steps to make sure I am progressing toward my goals. I create a plan to “beat yesterday.”
