For a long time I’ve set non-negotiables in my life. Why? Because there's no success without self-respect. When you stand tall and say, "These are the things I will do for myself, no matter what," you're laying the foundation for true success.
To be clear: It isn't about the occasional lazy day vibes or that comfy bed calling your name. It's deeper than that. It's about acknowledging that if you don’t put yourself first, then who will? It's about respecting yourself enough to prioritize your needs and values. If you’re not playing for Team You, then what’s the game plan?
I've been vocal about the magic of small, consistent actions. But let’s amp it up a notch. Combine those consistent actions with an unwavering commitment, and you set yourself up to become truly unstoppable.
The exhilarating shock of a cold plunge
Morning spiritual reading
Moments of reflection through journaling.
These aren’t just items on a checklist. They're pillars that make me better, sharper, more *alive*. Every. Single. Day.
Have my non-negotiables changes over the years? Yes, of course! Don’t think your non-negotiables as a punishment, there needs to be a noticeable return on investment, keep an open mind, but also realize that if you lack motivation, that’s not a valid excuse for not doing something that is important!
And hey, to those who say, "I don’t have time for that." or "Maybe tomorrow?" Let's cut through the noise. If you don’t have 10 minutes for yourself, it's time to recalibrate. Because those 10 minutes? They can reshape your day, your mindset, and eventually, your life.
Self-respect is the cornerstone. Non-negotiables are the building blocks. Construct them right, and you create an empire of success and happiness. The playbook to freedom is about taking charge, prioritizing yourself, and stepping into the limelight of your life.
Remember, you’re not just aiming for financial freedom or an early exit from the rat race. It’s about living every day with purpose, passion, and an unwavering commitment to yourself. Let’s champion our cause, and let the world see the magic we have inside us.
