Recommit defined as “make the conscious decision that you will take the daily actions necessary to realize your goal”. I woke up this morning after dealing with horrible cold for several days. These last couple weeks have been a difficult balance of work stress, work out stress, juggling so many items, and general fatigue.

So today I made that decision to refocus harder. I awoke to crystallize a clear mission, purpose, and goal and reach down to again bring out my inner desire.
I watched the Serena Williams You Tube video “Rise” https://youtu.be/t3DpBq9Y4F0 and was inspired more. The more real and visible to goal, the better focus I find.

Albert E. N. Gray, who wrote "The Common Denominator of Success" said, “The single thing that determines success and failure is that successful people develop the habit of doing the things that unsuccessful people won’t do.” In other words, successful people are willing to do the daily actions necessary to realize their goal.

So I have prepared my month schedule and “turned up the dial” in my off-season training. I also have organized and focused my energies on the key item to accomplish. Pinpointing energies allows you to hone in on key achievements and prevents outside forces from interrupting.

The world-famous concert pianist of the early twentieth century Ignace Paderewski once told an interviewer, “If I fail to practice for one day, I hear the difference. If I fail to practice for three days, my friends can tell the difference. If I fail to practice for one week, the whole world knows it.” Paderewski knew the importance and value of daily commitment to practice and action steps to achieve his goals.

Now putting it into action! RECOMMIT!

I have been asked a number of times to discuss my physical transformation that started several years ago. I wanted to share what I feel are 5 key qualities to such transformation.

Inherent in your heart. Going through the motions just won’t cut it. You need to feel the fire in the belly (no pun intended) to start the transformation. Tony Robbins always said “Change comes from Inspiration or Desperation” I believe that. You either lose weight to look “better” in your clothes or you just can’t fit in them anymore. You need to crash to the bottom to become determined to rise to the top each and every day.

Gotta do it! Can’t just say it but need to do it. Workout, food, supplements, sleep, everything. Many times I said going start and eat well for 3,4,5 days then crashed again. Consistency is the key. Have to live it and be able to love it! Many of times I feel like crap but still drag myself to get the work in at the gym.
Eating needs to become a machine. The only way to transform your thoughts on food is to look at it as a purpose not a pleasure. It becomes like a car filling gas. Putting in proper fuel to have it run better and drive nicer. Too many people give their vehicles better fuel and treatment than their bodies. I look at each meal now as “feeding time” and a process to keep the body running. This also provides focus.

Celebrate the achievements. There is nothing better than enjoying and complimenting yourself for the steps of the ladder that you accomplished. I prided myself in dedication and appreciation of myself as I transformed. Your body and mind need to understand and process positive thankfulness of your work. This provided me the encouragement to continue. Similar to a baby who is happy on their first steps and want to keep walking. Be good to yourself.
#Fortitude! That is my word. I have lived it, done it and continue to do it. You need to walk through fire and continue to walk as you burn. No excuses. It’s tough, days are good and bad but fortitude to get through and compartmentalize the dynamics in your life are crucial. I was dealing with numerous dynamics in my life as I continued my transformation. I focused to make training a “stable” routine in my unpredictable life. It is amazing what your body can achieve when your mind is relentless.

I look to continue writing about this transformation topic. I appreciate all the comments, thoughts and reflections. Remember #GetFortitude
