Steve Wright: Get Started Now, Be Consistent, and Get Results!
It’s never too late to take that first step towards our desires and goals, or to revisit and reset our intentions.
Hey, yoogozites! Some of you have had the pleasure of meeting my friend and former Mastermind member Steve Wright. Perhaps you were part of his Mastermind group a couple of years ago, or maybe you joined us at our Speakeasy Dinner Series at The Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica. I can tell you that he’s a powerfully unique and talented human who has a heart of gold, is a high-achiever, inventor, philanthropist, entrepreneur, former NFL player, and contestant on Season 22 of the hit show, Survivor (Redemption Island).
Because living a life of significance is found beyond the bottom line, I encourage people to focus on their Whole Health, not just on their bank account. One of the spans in my Whole Health Spider Graph (more about that can be found by clicking here) is Physical Health, on which Steve Wright is uniquely qualified to speak. I asked him if we could share the following article he wrote last year for NFL 2 Seven Summits as a reminder to each of us on the importance of getting started and consistency. Thanks, Steve, for letting me share! ~Larry
Most everyone has big thoughts and plans to start an eating plan (remember, no “diet”) for some reason or another, as well as getting back into the gym…to get in shape, lose fat or whatever, but a lot of this, as I’ve seen through my years, is more talk than action. As my father used to tell me, “quit flapping your lips and get to it.” I learned early on that it was better to get started and make the effort, which satisfied him and began to teach me how much easier it was to get things done, rather than to procrastinate and put things off.
Just Get Started
The best time to get started is now. You don’t need to wait until January 1st or Monday to get started working out or anything else you’ve been delaying…show up and get started today, or at the latest by tomorrow. A professional baseball player for 16 years, Cal Ripken finished his career by playing in 2,632 games without missing one game…he just showed up.
I was fortunate to hang with Tony Robbins, the author, motivational speaker, and class act of a human. I went through many of his courses, but the one that was most meaningful and memorable was his Walking on Coals seminar. The gist of this is to take that first step (in business, relationships, exercise, etc.) and then keep moving and do not stop…for obvious reasons.
Aim for Progress
You don’t need an amazing workout every time you’re in the gym, but you do need to be there to do something. My wife Liz likes to say, “we’ll never be mad we went,” and that is so true. Get in the gym, leave your phone, focus for the time you’ve committed to, get your game face on, and I promise you a worthy workout that will keep you coming back.
I would love to hear from you if there are hurdles keeping you from your desires. Reach out to me if I can be of any help. Get started now and good luck…you will love it.
