Shark Bite or Minnow Bite. You Decide.

"IT'S MUCH EASIER TO ACT YOURSELF INTO A CERTAIN WAY OF FEELING, THAN TO FEEL YOURSELF INTO A CERTAIN WAY OF ACTING"


Read that one more time, let it sink in.

"IT'S MUCH EASIER TO ACT YOURSELF INTO A CERTAIN WAY OF FEELING, THAN TO FEEL YOURSELF INTO A CERTAIN WAY OF ACTING"


I talk to people everyday who want to lose weight, get more energy or get back in shape, they're just waiting to "GET MOTIVATED"

Most of those people are still waiting.

This year you've started the year out on solid ground. You've taken the time to write your Purpose for Training at Cr8 Fitness in 2019. You've even identified a stumbling block or something you foresee that might just slip you up. I am proud of you for Training with a Purpose in MInd

And yet there is more to do. 

"IT'S MUCH EASIER TO ACT YOURSELF INTO A CERTAIN WAY OF FEELING, THAN TO FEEL YOURSELF INTO A CERTAIN WAY OF ACTING"

Its time to take some action. 

Decide now whether to take a Shark Bite or a Minnow Bite on your Purpose.

SHARK BITES

Shark bites are one time actions that you can do NOW in order to move you forward in your purpose. Its an action you don't need to repeat because once is done. Its kind of like why you should not swim in the ocean. One bite from a shark and YOU"RE Done. 

For example, My purpose for training is to stay out of the doctor's office for unplanned visits. I know I'll have a yearly check up, and a check up for cancer that seems to crop up in my family. A shark bite for me would be to go ahead and make those appointments. I call once and I am done, appointment made. 

If your purpose in 2019 is to get to a healthier body fat, your one time Shark Bite could be to sign up for the Fresh Start Challenge or the Crockpot Workshop. Once you've done either one of these you've done a step that won't have to be repeated. Its a Shark Bite. 

MINNOW BITES

Minnow bites on the other hand are daily consistent little nibbles at your purpose. Its something you are working to build into a habit or turn into consistent behavior. They become rituals. It is also why swimming in a lake or river is not as dangerous, minnows only take little nibbles you hardly notice. (In case you don't know, I'm not a fan of ocean swimming)

For me, a minnow bite might include taking my daily vitamin, or making sure I drink 100 ounces of water a day, or cutting my coffee intake to one cup a day. It is something that over time becomes natural and easy. I still have to work at it, yet it is not something that usually takes 15 minutes every day. 

If your purpose is to do 10 push ups in 2019. Your minnow bite could include 2-3 minutes of push up work a day that might not be push ups at all. Remember we have to stretch and take care of those muscles as much as we want them to work hard. Your minnow bites would also include heat, or massage, or fish oil, or LaCross ball work. 

Shark Bite or Minnow Bite- you decide, but decide.

Most of those people are still waiting. Don't be one of them. 

To your best health,
