So what do I mean by TAKE LIFE BY THE BALLS?
Well, it's just another way of saying get shit done. Now that doesn't mean you have to constantly get stuff done, but as long as you are making PROGRESS.
I recently made a post on my Instagram (@c3dbatofficial) about how Rome wasn't built in a day, but here I'm going to actually give you guys a real life example of what I mean by this.
When I first told my parents that I was going to be going self employed and quitting my job, they weren't happy. But I did it anyway. (I'm pretty hard to stop if I get an idea in my head)
I believed that it was right for me, but that's not to say I wasn't scared. Of course I was scared, it invited instability into my life, which scared the hell out of me.
I have had good days and I have had extremely bad days. I have had days where I hate myself, where I think I am the worst trainer in the world and that everyone is going to think that I am a fraud. It's called impostor syndrome. Look it up.
But I did my best to keep progressing and pushing. I've tried things, some of which worked, and some of which didn't. But I didn't wanna give up.
Which is odd for me, because I am a coaster. I am someone who likes to coast through life, and I am someone who has gotten away with coasting for most of my life.
In fact, until recently, I was still coasting. I was letting myself fall into bad habits and my standards were slipping.
Then corona happened and suddenly I had no income.
I'll spare the details for now, because I wanna go into more detail about all of that at a later date, but long story short: I'm still doing it. I'm still chipping away at this story called my life, because I have an idea in my head and I'm not going to stop this time. No more coasting.
