Around this time last year I developed some serious lower back pains.
Didn’t know what it was at the time. And I honestly thought it would pass faster than sex with a guy with a bad case of premature ejaculation.
It only got worse.
Until by the time January rolled by I was a shambling mess. Holding my back everywhere I went and wincing everytime I sat down because it felt like someone was driving a pitchfork into my spine and twisting it whenever their twisted sense of humor saw it fit.
My family took me for an X-ray to get it checked because:
- They couldn’t bear to see me in pain any longer.
- Any spinal injuries meant dad wouldn’t get a grandchild. And he wasn’t having any of that.
Anyways, turns out my lower spine got out of alignment and needed physio to fix.
Now, as much as I wanted this problem fixed ASAP there was no way that was gonna happen. My Physiotherapist told me it would take at least 3 years to get my spine to 80% of it’s former glory.
3 fucking years. No shortcuts.
Since March, I’ve been doing a mini physiotherapy routine in my room every morning. At first, it only mildly relieved the pain. By after over four months of exercise my back barely hurts anymore.
Now, at this point you’re wondering why I’m sharing all this hogwash with you, aren’t you?
The reason, is to point out two major points ,drill them into your head and seal the hole. These two points apply to every part of your life. And even more so in your business. And you’re lucky you don’t have to go through the pain I did to learn them ( I envy you… )
The points are:
- If you want something, be prepared to work for it- I wanted pain relief but it wasn’t going to knock on my door, ask to come inside and make me feel better.
No. I had to work my ass off everyday doing uncomfortable, and sometimes painful exercises to get to my long term goal.
Nothing is going to come for you if you aren’t willing to work for it.
- Consistency is key- This one is crucial. If you truly want to squeeze as much potential out of yourself as you can, then you must be consistent.
No shortcuts around it.
If I skipped a day of my exercises I was left in unbearable pain for the rest of the day. If you skip a day of mailing your list, or skip a scheduled post, you’re tossing your money away.
There are no magic pills in business. If you aren’t willing to put in the work, and the consistency needed to survive, you aren’t going to make it.
That’s all for today.
And thank you reading this.
Till the next wave of madness…
PS- I wasn’t going to end this post without a shameless plug. That would’ve been retarded.
