Excellence is a habit…

Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.” ~Aristotle

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It has been said that being excellent is doing a lot of little things really well.  And that can mean having some really good habits in place in your life. 

For instance, the night before every workout I always lay out my clothes, my shoes, my socks, and everything else I need.  This makes it that much easier to just wake up in the morning and change into my clothes to go workout.  That might seem small.  But doing this over and over again has become an essential habit in my life that I have mastered.

What small things in your life could you master?  

I also recently started to prepare the 10 ingredients in my morning smoothie into a small cup beforehand, so all I have to do is dump it into the smoothie when I make it.  Genius right? 

What if you surprised yourself with your ability to conquer your problem by breaking it down into small doable parts? What if you surprised yourself with your own rare and brute strength? What if you surprised yourself and found that you had what it took to face that giant impossible problem? What if you surprised yourself and did that thing that scares you most? What if you took the risk and it paid off? What if you surprised yourself with the strength to go through the most difficult and hardest parts of your life? What if you surprised yourself with the gift of showing up and just being there for another person? What if you surprised yourself and took the next step in your recovery process from your addiction? What if you surprised yourself today?
