What're You Looking For?

Last night we hosted a seminar titled "The Other 165."

You're at the gym about 3 hours a week, and there are 168 hours in a week, so what about the other 165 hours?

We talked about nutrition, stress, mindset, and goal setting. 

I had the section on mindset and goal setting and one of the biggest head nod moments that I got was when I shared this....

"Everyone wants to live on the top of the mountain, but all happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it."

To sum, this is forever, it never stops, it goes on to infinity. 

If you can fall in love with the process of it, and stop thinking that glitter and rainbows are going to appear once you hit a certain number on the scale, you'll realize that the process is where the growth and happiness occurs. 

I always say one of the largest reasons for the success of Spurling is my team and I just love what we do. 

We love the journey of building what we're building. 

The community, the results, the impact. 

We just love the process. 

Sure there are goals, but just like we push to you, we just always look to get 1% better, and we know we will continue to get 1% better, every day, forever, always. 

Quite often we meet with people that have a goal of say losing 30lbs. 

And that's awesome. 

We're going to make that happen. 

However, where we really try to help them is in realizing that you're not going to wake up the day you're down 30lbs and not have to go the gym again. 

You're still going to have to make healthy food choices 80% of the time. 

You're still going to have to manage your stress and sleep. 

It's important as you start to make choices to better yourself like fitness and nutrition choices you make choices that put you in a place or state that you enjoy being in.

If you're miserable, if it's too restrictive, and not fun and engaging you'll never stick with it. 

Find something, somewhere, someone, where you just love the process.

You just love the daily grind of building what you're building. 

Once that happens, you'll see your happiness go through the roof, and your results drastically improve. 

I guarantee it. 

I always tell everybody I haven't "worked" since January 1, 2012, that was the day before Spurling opened. 

Sure, there are days where I "work hard" and days that are better than others, that's called being a human, but, I love what I do so much, I wake up every morning with this fire in my gut to go make a 1% change in this world. 

What I wish for you is that you find your passion, you find what brings the fire to your belly, and then, and only then, will you be forever motivated. 

Now go get em'!

1% better, right?

Dedicated to Your Success,

Doug Spurling
