Currently, I’m a part of two paid cohorts:
- June Sweat Challenge (on Instagram by Kanav Vohra)
- Power Writing (by Shaan V Puri)
Do you know what is the surprising part?
They share NOTHING new, everything is already there as a free information on the internet.
Do you know what is the more surprising part?
- I have been getting wonderful results with both
- The Instagram and Slack communities are wonderful
- We get to experience the fire of burning and the joy of learning together. That makes it priceless.
- Not to mention, the time of an expert + the years of wisdom from them makes everything so worth getting into the room
- When you pay for something, no matter how little or how big, you get yourself into a commitment – and that is the best thing that keeps you moving!
PS: Of these, the Writing course is employer sponsored 🙂
Up-skilling not only takes you out of your comfort zone, it makes sure you create new comfort zones for yourself. And then rinse and repeat.
Staying in silence is good. Thinking others should also do this way, is too much a burden for them.
Working out is good. Not respecting others when they don’t, isn’t.
Liking Sufi music is great. Expecting others to find it melodious isn’t.
Having choices is what makes us human.
Respecting others with their choices makes us a super human.
Not asking them to change because we want them to, is divine.
Today morning, I woke up on time, did my meditation and went back to sleep.
By the time I got up again, it was already the time for breakfast. Also, was feeling very hungry. So decided to skip exercise in the morning, and thought to do it in the evening.
Around 12 noon, when I opened up the fridge to prepare for lunch, a different thing happened. I just felt the NEED for exercise.
So I dropped my plan of cooking, and stated exercising. Had lunch around 1:45PM post workout.
Though lunch got delayed too much, learnt a powerful thing about life: we always know what is right.
Our body is also telling us what is right.
All that we need to do, is to listen.
Over the part of my gym regimen, my trainer and I didn’t give much importance to planks. We did achieve my goal with strength training and HIIT, though.
At the same time, another person in the gym who is not as lean as me, who is quite a bit away from their fitness goals, is able to do three planks of 53 seconds back-to-back. Because she practices them daily.
While I could barely keep still for 30 seconds.
Why are we discussing this?
Because practice matters. You will get results only in places where you have consistency in place.
And when you have been backed up by practice, you can easily achieve any (plank) goal that you know you will be proud of.
