Make A Decision: Are You A “Resolutionary” or an “Evolutionary?”

Buffer

Happy New Year, New Warriors. Yes, today is “that” day again. It’s the day to vow to do
things differently than you’ve done them before. Trust me, as much as we may not want
to admit it, we’ve all done it. We’ve all turned into, “New Years Resolutionaries.”

In fact, out of all of the wars documented in the annals of history, no war is greater,
nor has stood the test of time, like the “Resolutionary” War. You know how it plays
out….every 365 (and sometimes 366) days, there is this on-going battle highlighted
between “Evolution” & “Mediocrity.” It’s hard to say which one really wins, as this is
not necessarily a one war event. It’s millions of small battle.

As with most battles, this annual “Resolutionary” war often begins with the warrior saying,
“I’m tired of feeling or looking this way, and I’m not going to take it any more.” While, that
type of motivation could be applauded, it’s often not enough to achieve victory over one’s self.

Before any warrior can go into any battle and win, he/she must be prepared
….must have a plan…and must have the right weapons appropriate to face their opponent.

In this case, the opponent, Mediocrity, is often more prepared to face us, than we ever will be, to face it.
You see, Mediocrity has trained for this annual battle, consistently for 365 (and yes, sometimes 366)
days a year. In fact, it has prepared to face and defeat you, often long before you were born, thanks
to various traditions and imposed thoughts, practices, and opinions of others (i.e. our family, cultures, society, etc.).
You may ask, what are Mediocrity’s winning weapons of choice, and how do you overcome them?

Here’s a quick  look inside Mediocrity’s battle gear:

1.  Procrastination
2.  Unwillingness to change
3.  Lack of focus
4.  Playing the victim
5.  Lack of knowing what “You” need to win
6.  Misinformation by the media
7.  Low Self-esteem
8.  Too much want for motivation & a lack of inspiration
9.  Relying of outside sources to miraculously undo a lifetime of bad habits in a few short weeks &/or days
10. Acceptence

Honestly, I just wasted your time, listing these 10 weapons of Mediocrity, we often
use in order to not live the life and be in the shape we know we should.  I could go
on and on. However, the only true weapon Mediocrity uses is one:

“Not Knowing &/or Owning What You “Really” Want!”

Trust me, every one of us wants “what we “really” want, even if it’s simply, not owning the fact that we’re often
too confuse or delusional to admit that we don’t really know what we want.

However, I find that more often than not, just like a child who is hell-bent on getting what they want, adults are no different.

– You lose weight & keep it off, because that’s what you “really” want.

– You buy those expensive shoes, because you “really” want them! (even if you know you can’t afford them, you’ll find the money needed to purchase them).

– You can’t find the right mate or friends, because you don’t “really” want
to make the necessary changes within yourself, in order to attract anyone
who is different than the people you continue to   attract
.

It’s quite simple. In order to get the opposite of what you’ve been getting, you have to “consistently
do the opposite things you “need” to do, in order to get them. This is especially true, when getting your health & fitness  in order.

Trust me, we all have a lot going on in our lives, but we all have the same 24 hours in a day. It’s what we do with
them, that matters. If we don’t have a well thought out “personalized” plan of attack for those 24 hours, then
Mediocrity will defeat you once again, in this year’s annual “Resolutionary War.”

What are you going to do “differently’ this new year, in order to bring an end to the
“Resolutionary War?” Starting from now (notice I did not limit it to “in 2010”),
how are you becoming an “Evolutionary?”

Drop a comment below, and share with your fellow warriors your plan of attack.
After all, we are all in this battle together, and strength is in numbers!

  • Hi Sincere, thanks for featuring my video here. I am truly honoured. Will hope to meet you one day and knock out a tough session together!

  • I think you're on to something with this “battle gear of mediocrity”. These things, although they seem different, often go hand-in-hand.

    Just yesterday I found an article on a women's health website about weight loss scams. The article was highlighting how people's lack of self-esteem (your #7) makes them vulnerable to misinformation by the media (#6)…and they then fall victim (#4) to hard sells for scam products that claim to offer easy instant weight-loss solutions (#9).
