I Believe in Excess
One of the things that has become INCREASINGLY clear to me over the past year or two is that the more I PUSH, the happier and more in flow I become.
(Hint … I know this is not right for EVERYONE. But read on if you’re thinking it MIGHT be right for you).
For so long I thought I was too switched on, work too hard, do too much, want too much, too adrenalin-fueled, just too DEMANDING of life and of myself.
So I tried to slow down.
I fought to relax. (And it WAS a fight!).
I pushed myself NOT to push.
What happened, was I grew fatter, more bored, less disciplined, less creative, less motivated, less – happy.
I was still MORE than keeping up with what the world would consider ‘successful’.
But I was WAY outside my genius zone.
My genius zone is, in a word, GO.
Those who don’t GET this post will likely feel sorry for me, or roll their eyes, or think I’m insane, or assume it means I’m sacrificing in areas there shouldn’t BE sacrifice.
Quite the opposite, although I won’t bother trying to explain for those to whom being like this can NOT be explained.
And perhaps you get it.
Perhaps you too, come alive when you’re ON.
Perhaps you too LOVE the juggle.
Perhaps you too THRIVE on more, on INDULGING IN EXCESS.
Perhaps you too secretly believe that what the world comprehends as being realistic, achievable, just the right amount and not too much is in fact based on a drifting population taught NOT too push, because really, why SHOULD you?
Well, because LIFE.
Because HOW CAN YOU NOT.
[pq]Pushing doesn’t mean you don’t stop, or take time off, or do fun things.[/pq]
But it probably means you don’t feel rejuvenated or refreshed by the activities that many consider to be so.
It probably means you are restored by ACTION.
It probably means you are energised by diving WITHIN yourself, and by pulling out what you find and then by getting the fuck to WORK on it.
It probably means you are happier when CHALLENGED (on your terms!) rather than accepted where you’re at,
It probably means you can barely even BEGIN action on idea before the next one is bubbling up.
If this is you, then guess what? You will NEVER be happy trying to slow yourself to the world’s pace.
So here’s an idea –
What if the world’s rules don’t apply to you?
What if the world’s AVERAGES aren’t what you want to base YOUR normal on?
I BELIEVE IN EXCESS.
And I suspect you do too 🙂
A WORD about my daily blogs. I’m making it OFFICIAL (not that it changes anything I’ve actually been doing!) – I now send a DAILY message to inspire, motivate and empower you and to KICK YOUR ASS TO WHEREVER IT NEEDS TO GO.
Sometimes I will make you an OFFER at the end of these messages. Sometimes I won’t.
Sometimes they will be part of a LAUNCH. Sometimes they won’t.
SOMETIMES I will send MORE than one email that day, for example if I need to let you also know about an upcoming free call.
And if you are a PAID CLIENT (and I would LOVE to officially kick your butt in that way!) then yep you’ll get EVEN MORE emails from me.
If it’s ALL JUST TOO MUCH, then PLEASE, for both our sakes – unsubscribe! But if you want the daily ASSKICKERY and you COMMIT to creating the business and the life you want this year – and beyond! – then stick around baby. We got WORK to do!
Life is Now. Press Play.
