“Man I’m hungry!”
Do you say that to yourself during the day? If you do is it for lunch or is it for what you want?
Arnold Schwarzenegger said, “For me, life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.” Read a great article about Arnie here.
Arnie sums up the meaning of life succinctly with this quote. Comfort is what is looked for these days by most people. It’s where we stop being hungry and ‘nest’. But comfort is akin to laziness because you will get fat and you will slow down and you will cease to be an asset to your family and community / world. Yes it is that big.
So how do you stay hungry?
Good question because the answer will be different for all of us. But the answer will be in the form of a goal or a desire that inspires you.
Big changes to your life are very hard to do and usually not required to achieve the result you want. There will always be a minimum amount you can do that will actually be easy to do and get you what you want.
You just have to start.
As an example I want to lose my love handles. For guys they seem to be the last thing to go and are hard to move. Going to the gym is not something I really enjoy and the trainers have the same answers. So I researched and found a simple solution that involved me changing what I ate for breakfast, measuring my waist and doing a set amount of reps three times a week. Not hard at all to do. In fact I am really enjoying it and seeing results straight away. It’s got me hungry to do more and I have set some new goals.
NOTE: Measuring what you are doing is a vital key to your success in anything.
Being hungry will help make your life and the stuff that comes your way easier, more fun and keep you involved. That sounds like a great way to be to me.
Have a great week.
