We all go through life carrying the crosses on our backs. Maybe it’s a job we don’t especially love. Maybe we’re in debt and it’s causing us a lot of stress. Maybe we’re in a marriage that isn’t very great right now. But we trudge through, day after day, hoping that magically it will get better.
We try to eat less than 2,000 calories a day. We try and exercise. We try to be good little soldiers in our work life. We try to be good parents. But none of this stuff comes easily. They don’t hand you an instruction manual after college that tells you how to maximize your life. And so you trudge on, happy some days, unhappy on other days. But isn’t everyone like that?
I’m here to tell you that, no, it doesn’t have to be like that. You can be pretty dang happy and revel in your Kick Ass Life with probably just a few changes and time. Yes, time which is a commodity just like money. You have to truly want to change, though. That’s the rub.
If wishes were fishes the sea would be full. So stop wishing and actually do something about it.
Usually, getting out of the orbit of everyday life and making it happen is difficult. But you can do it on you’re own if you have suitable thruster power in your rocket. Here’s how:
- get a piece of paper out
- write down 10-20 goals, they can be reach goals or simple goals like “I want to fix that hole in the drywall.” Be as specific as you can be.
- now write down next to each goal a 1, 2, or 3 in priority, with 1 being highest. For example, you just got back from the Dr. and he says you need to lose 50 pounds or you’ll die. That’s a 1 goal. A 3 goal might be I’d like to start a college fund for the kids (after a 1 or 2 goal of getting out of debt and socking away money for retirement).
- write down when you want to accomplish that goal by
- pin that sheet on your bathroom mirror
- commit, Commit, COMMIT to making that happen. Your mantra is “I Kick Ass! I live a Kick Ass Life! Today I will Kick Ass so tomorrow my life will be even better!”
It’s up to you then to get your incremental steps figured out, but if you know where the destination is, you can actually set a road map. Most people don’t want a Kick Ass life. They are willing to settle for mediocrity. They like to revel at the water cooler with all the other drones about how they are so tired, or hate their job, or need to lose weight. They get identity from the victim mentality. I know if you’re reading this, you aren’t like this, or want to stop being like this. So get after it Bromingos (and Sismigas)! Make it happen.
