Which one are you...
A thermometer or a thermostat?
They sound similar, but they are actually quite different.
A thermometer REACTS to the temperature.
A thermostat SETS and CONTROLS the temperature.
Do you sit back and wait to react?
Or do you take control, set the tone, and go after what you want?
I think the number one reason why I love this stuff is I could relate this to about 1000 other things other than fitness, and it still holds true.
In business I don't care what others are doing, I simply set our vision, take control, and go after it.
With your finances, you have to take control of things, set where your money goes and go after it.
In life, sure there is a time to react to what just came up, but most of the time it's about being a thermostat.
Putting your head down, setting the tone, and taking control of what you want.
In fitness and nutrition, we see thermometers all the time...
You overeat on the weekend so you REACT by going to the complete other side of the spectrum.
You see the new shiny diet plan so you REACT and hope for the quick fix.
My best advice would be to keep your head down, keep your vision and goals in constant sight, and take control of what you want.
Don't get sidetracked by a new shiny object or a bump in the road, they will come up, don't worry, just be a thermostat, set the tone, stay in your lane, and just chip away at what you want, drip by drip fill the bucket.
Are you a thermometer or a thermostat?
I'll be back tomorrow to wrap up the week :)
