I was speaking with a good friend of mine this evening who is highly successful in their field of elite health and fitness and I wanted to share with you his four D’s of success. Below is what he considers to be the basic foundations of his extreme success to date in this industry:
1. Diet (Healthy Nutrition)
2. Discipline (Self)
3. Determination (Self)
4. Desire (Burning)
He explained to me how he applies these basic success principles in his daily life and how good this makes him feel. I just felt it was really good to share with you his thoughts, to help you learn and apply these principles in your daily life.
It certainly inspired me and got me thinking about the principles that are missing from my daily life and for me “Discipline” is the one I need to work on.
Which of these success principles do you feel you need to work on or what do you feel is missing from the list?
It’s great to share this knowledge with you and add a little bit of value to your life.
I was coaching a client in July 2011 and she was talking about not having a TV anymore, there were lots of positives coming from this discussion, so much so that when I went home that evening I didn’t want to have a TV anymore either, so I got rid of it, that very day.
I must say, this has been one of the best things I ever did and so many positives have come from me not having a TV. I started to read more books, make more time for exercise, visit people more, talk to friends on the telephone, research into subjects I was interested in, focus more on developing myself and my business and one of the best positives was then having the time to start this Clarabelle blog and post on a regular basis.
When I made this decision the people around me thought I was being “weird”, some of them still do. The first thing people usually ask me when they come into my home is “Where is your TV?” and now I very proudly say I haven’t had a TV for over 2 years and I love not having a TV. Usually this is followed by “Really, well what do you then with your time then?” and I very happily tell them all the positive things I do which grow me as a person, maximise my wellbeing and build my relationships with other people, sometimes I will even refer them to this Clarabelle blog. 🙂
I am not saying that not having a TV is for everyone, it just really works for me, I live myself and prefer now to read a good self development book rather than watch a drama on TV.
All in all a very good decision for me and the positive outcomes have been tremendous.
Below is a picture of my living room, living happily without a TV. 🙂
You may want to keep your TV for various reasons but maybe you could consider reducing the time you watch it, for e.g. 1 hour less per day, that will then give you an extra 7 hours per week to do something else you may not have time for right now!! Just a thought 🙂
Wherever you are today, whatever you are doing, I do hope it is helping you to move closer to your goals. Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.
