Happy Mondayyyyyyyyyyyyy, Guten Morgen, As Salaam Alaikum 🙂
Apologies to get all up in your grill right away – but holy shit I’m writing this in excruciating pain from a having a fucking wisdom tooth ripped out on Saturday.
Ya bois face is as swollen as John Mayers ego.
I’m bloody 26 years old, I thought this shit would have been and gone by now
But here I am, bag of peas on the face, slurpin soup & protein shakes.
I’ve always been a bloody late bloomer.
(And this fucking sucks.)
But, it’s fine. I’m fine. Everything is fine. This pain, like everything, is just temporary. No point in letting it take control of my path, my focus or my time – it will be over in a couple days.
I still showed up for all my in person sessions.
I still got all my programming done for online clients.
I still got 6 gym sessions & a boxing session in.
I still got all my shit done.
Excuses are for those who need them, my focus is on being grateful that this will be over soon & that I have the capability to deal with it.
Attitude of gratitude, my dude.
This whole process has left me considering the impact that little choices can have on our entire future.
Bloody beat of a butterfly’s wing type shit.
“You are what you are today because of decisions that you made, or did not make, sometime in the past. And you decisions will determine where you will be 10 years from now. Human excellence is about taking control of your life. We gain that control by our actions, and our actions are determined by our decisions.” – Dr. Harry Adler
(Like I wish I had decided to get this fkn tooth out a year ago. The reason why I am in so much pain now is because I decided to NOT take action a year ago. MUPPET.)
Our decisions, and lack of decisions, are what make up our entire future.
This type of mentality can make the small decisions that don’t seem to be of much consequence much more important in our day to day lives.
I’ve used this technique all the time – every time I don’t want to go to the gym or count my calories.
I mean, listen – let’s be real here – the chances of my future being ruined due to me missing the gym one day is pretty slim
(I’ll get slim if I don’t gym, too – the worst future ever)
But it goes further than that.
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your identity.” -JAMES MOTHERFUCKING CLEAR
What if this one decision to indulge in my own comfort & not workout results in giving myself a precedent for the next time I don’t want to work out?
(There is a big difference between recognizing genuine fatigue & assessing that you need sleep more than a workout, and just being a tiny bit tired but lazy. You know it, I know it, we all know it.)
Think about it next time you’re considering sitting on the couch watching fkn re-runs over going to the gym
‘Am I voting to be a better me, or to be lazy couch turd-burger?’
No matter how small the odds are now, that’s a risk you should refuse to take, that’s the future of your life, man – take some responsibility for being in control of it.
For the bit of effort, I need to put in to make a positive choice now that will positively impact the REST OF MY GODAMN FRIGGIN LIFE
Worth it I’d say.
You may think that one vote in that direction won’t pull your life in that direction, that one vote won’t matter.
I’m sure people thought that about Trump as President, either. It’s a slippery slope my friend – best to just stay off it.
The main problem I see for a lot of people when it comes to making a decision involving commitment is the fear of getting it wrong.
Of fucking it up.
Of not being able to live up to the challenge.
But fuck, so what??
“fear is usually about making the wrong decision. So the first to make is not to be afraid of failure, to be willing to give things a try, even though success is never 100% guaranteed. The only guarantee is that if you don’t do anything, you’ll never get anything. – Dr. Harry Adler
100p Dr. Haz.
If you try to make a positive change, and fail, you’ll only end up in the same position as now – just with the added experience of trying once.
Thats a net positive gain in my opinion.
It literally will do you no harm.
But if you try and manage to succeed. You could change the trajectory of your whole dang life.
That’s so exciting! So many possibilities!
Listen, at the end of the day,
I can’t guarantee that my coaching will work for you.
I can’t guarantee that you’ll lose all the weight you desire.
I can’t guarantee that you’ll magically start enjoying exercise straight away.
(It’s funny, as I type this I battle the urge to delete that out of fear that it will come across like I don’t know what I am doing, seeing as so many insta gurus guarantee their bulshit claims. But no, I promised that I would always be honest to you all – so here we are)
I can’t guarantee these things as it requires effort from YOU to do the work. I will provide you the vehicle for your self-development, but you’re the driver.
What I can guarantee you is; if you don’t try anything – you’ll remain the same. And remaining the same as time goes on is going backwards. If you don’t try anything, you will go into a negative self-development balance.
My coaching, someone else’s coaching, YouTube coaching, self-coaching – it doesn’t matter to me to be honest. Please, just try something.
Try something that can pull you into a positive self-development balance.
Make a decision to try something, today, that you’ll be glad you did in 5 years from now.
You have the power to do something today that will positively affect the trajectory of the rest of your life.
If it doesn’t work, that’s cool – you just found one more method that doesn’t work. Onto the next one.
For $25 a week – it’s a low risk investment really.
You can’t even get a parmy & a beer in Brisbane for that.
You could get nearly two years of self-development coaching for the price of getting a fucking wisdom tooth ripped out.
I know what I would prefer.

Drugged up & loving this ice-cream & jelly life.
