Sometimes my friends ask “How/why am i good for my business?” Answer: Not because i am super motivated or fully dedicated, but because i am excited, self aware, funny, i always keep on reminding myself that my desires are my purpose, which makes the business look good & grow, employees/workers work with a delightful smile. Reason behind all is my believe in material growth.
One thing you can never point out in me is “MY CONSISTENCY”. Let me answer “the HOW”. I learnt it from my WORKOUT. Following fitness as a lifestyle choice is the biggest DISCIPLINE. Do you know why a person who’s going to gym is going to gym every single day without missing it!? There is something called DOPAMINE which hits you right after every workout creating wonders in head, heart & mood. When your workout gives you results, you never want to lose the streak of getting better stronger sassier. During this corona situation the only thing i missed is going to gym. Yes i was doing some 2-300 push-ups & squats in my house, but that never helped my hunger to lift weights. As i mentioned “DOPAMINE”; when your efforts show results, it’s a bliss to do what you do. Condition: you have to be CONSISTENT towards your desires & goals whether it’s fitness, studies or business. Whoever said it, said it right “CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY”.
Some exercises & workout everyday is my habit now. I love to see myself fit & fine everytime. God has given me a face to identify who’s TAP, can’t change it & YES they are important for my passport. But this body is mine, I will build it further every single day without taking a break. Few say I am obsessed, I say I am DEDICATED.
There is nothing obsessive about doing the right. Especially “OBSESSED” is a word used by lazy people to hide behind their mediocrity.
There was a time in my life when I used to hit gym every morning without fail, continued it for 3 whole years. Understood the capabilities of my body & mind, started feeling/looking the best version of myself after hitting that 5% bodyfat goal. I was always on schedule to sleep at night, because I was excited to wake up for 5AM morning workout. Body and mind both were on sync which helped me break my own comfort zone once again.
Yeah there were few who tried to stereotype me about my interest in gym & workout. The best part; all those who were saying that used to look like “Some Dad turned 50 & his only achievement is his beer belly”.How the fuck can “Gym” or “Workout” be a stereotype!! If it is, it is the best STEREOTYPE to be. At the end I must say “The difficulty in physical training/diet & lifestyle, handling such stereotypes with peace, all make you a DISCIPLINED person while strengthening your CHARACTER”.
There are some mornings I wake up with a huge dirty smile on my face, I just feel like I can jump from a mountain to an ocean or surf for an hour in the middle of a huge wave. Then I switch on the lights because it’s still 5.XX AM, go infront of mirror half eyes open to admire my 5-pack abs with few words in head: “You still look like the smexy grumpy juggernaut I left yesterday”. After brushing my teeth & cleaning my face I think about whether I still got my XL-size hoodie clean to hide this morning wood, usually I wear M-size t-shirt/joggers/sweatshirts.
I see my phone it’s still 5.45am, either I can sleep one more hour or go for a run. Suddenly my head shouts at me “The fuck is your worth without discipline, dedication, drive & desires!?”. So now a days I am running 4-5km everyday morning, yeah gyms are open now and I love weights as much as sugar free cheesecakes baked by chef TAP. After returning back from running my nerves calm down little bit and I still do couple of push-ups to sweat nicely. I always prefer to sweat before shower because it helps in cleaning the dead skin cells our body sheds at night while we are sleeping. Most of the time my morning breakfast is a sourdough bread toast topped with scrambled eggs & 60 second microwaved baby spinach. Can’t miss my black coffee, shit I am little addicted to coffee now a days because of this pandemic. Staying home all day & working from home is fun, but I swear I am missing uni & language classes. Can’t wait to get back to life as it used to be.
(You are totally allowed to judge WTF i typed here!! Most of my posts are scheduled a month advance. Most probably I typed this while sitting on pot after returning from gym.) Tap OUT..😜
Start today. Start first. Start fresh. Eat healthy. Train like your body stops feeling pain. Once you quit, you will be back to ZERO from where you began and start dreaming about what you were before quitting. Erase that option to QUIT. It’s your body which screams to STOP, not your mind. Wipe that sweat & fetch your DREAMS. Your strength & pride lies in your PAIN. Now tell yourself “You are different. Your uniqueness is, you aren’t gonna give up. Be proud of yourself”.
