Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 2 of Stephen Convey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
The best thing I’ve ever done is start with the end in mind. I drew out a 20 year plan and broke it down to 10 years, 5 years, 1 year, 6 months, 3 months, 1 month, and this week. For instance, in my health category 20 years from now, I want to be able to do 50 pushups, 5 pull-ups, run a 7 minute mile, and 100 squats so I can travel the world to explore nature while feeling young and functioning my best.
 A big indicator of independence is the ability to stand up from a seated position without using your hands. This requires spinal flexibility, muscle flexibility, coordination, balance, muscle strength, and the brain has to be able to simultaneously synchronize all of this. It’s my motivator to join this month’s Super Stretch Challenge led by ChiroBalance to work towards the freedom of movement by enhancing my muscle flexibility!
Use the future to empower the present. What will the things that you regret that you didn’t do? What will it be for you? Whatever this may be, it is still possible by starting now. There is nothing stopping you from working towards it, you can start making plans now towards the future. I’d like to cheat on the quote by Steve Jobs and suggest we sneak a peak ahead and work backwards. We can take the steps needed to get what you want out of life starting today! This life is your own creation developed from your repeated choices and actions. You are in the driver’s seat.
And just like that my 6 months serving with the Chiropractic Balance team is coming to an end! I’m so grateful for your trust and laughs along the way. Its been a fantastic experience 🙂
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, but don’t say good bye yet… I’ll see you in the FB stretch group!
