Being human is really complex but simple at the same time. If you are not balancing the work, rest, and fuel you can’t expect to achieve any great results or even feel good. If you don’t have the skills needed to mitigate the damage of stress, you are going to break down. In a nutshell, if you don’t take care of yourself you are going to perform at lower levels than the alternative and feel like crap along the way.
Why am I pointing out what should be obvious? Because I am bombarded with daily nonsense that promotes some magic idea, system, or concoction that changes the above and turns you into a super human. Of course we can’t change our nature and be super human, but we really do want to believe that we can and we are willing to spend endless amounts of money and time trying.
I know quite a few over achievers looking into how they can squeeze more out of each day. The truth is that they can’t. It is not something they want to believe so they keep trying to hack life. There is no magic life hack. There is no pill or powder that will change your DNA. Maybe some crazy scientist with silicon valley money is doing this kind of stuff, but we can’t find it on Amazon.
I implore you to invest your time and money being spent on magic, to be reinvested in your actual self. Figure out how to move your body more, drink more water, eat a little cleaner, and make sure you sleep 6 to 8 hrs a night. If you break down your time and really prioritize your day, you can achieve a more balanced approach that will get you feeling better. When you feel better and are achieving good results, you are no longer prey for the predators. Trust me, the life hackers and professional answers sales people are predators.
How do I have the audacity to deliver this message? Because I have read too many books, taken 1 to many course, and wasted enough time watching guru content. When I stopped looking for external answers, did what I knew was right, and reinvested in myself – I achieved the results that I was paying others to find. Truth about all of us is that we really do have the answers as to what we want and how to achieve it. You may need technical advice but you don’t need help to figure out who you are and what you want. You need confidence to face it and courage to make changes so you can start living it.
