How do you generally view things? Is your glass half full? Or half empty? Are you 40% body fat or are you 60% muscle? The average life expectancy is 77.9 years old. If you’re 39, do you think my life is half over? Or man I can't wait to see what the next 39 years brings! Your attitude and outlook will determine what kind of day you have. Simple as that. It is the one thing that you have complete control of when everything else is up to others. Hard day at work? Don’t let it keep ruining your day! Relationships in your life going through hard times? Don’t let it get you down! I see poor attitudes and outlooks on life holding people back from losing weight and getting in shape too. I have too much weight to lose, I’m too out of shape, I’m too old, it’s too hot. With the right attitude you can overcome all those objections. If you are very overweight or very out of shape, you are the one that needs it the most! Here’s my Get Your Mind Right plan I go through myself every day. I wake up, tip toe quietly out of my room because I get up at a ridiculous hour, get downstairs, clap my hands once, and tell myself it is going to be a great day. Sound cheesy? I’m not done yet. After I go through the rest of my morning to get ready for boot camp, there’s more fun in the Boot Camp Mobile. I have two note cards I read every morning. One says “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” And the other note card has my goals for the next 6 months. I read my note cards, say a prayer of thanksgiving for each of my campers and that they do their best and stay injury free. Now you don’t have to make it a faith based routine, I just wanted to give you an example of what works for me. Picture your attitude and outlook like your outfit for the day. You get to choose what you are putting on. Are you going to wear the negative, not going anywhere, hard to be around, sour puss shirt (for guys this would be an Ed Hardy shirt). Or are you going to put on that shirt that radiates positive energy and one that people want to be around? (A Huntsville Adventure Boot Camp shirt of course) Choose the positive attitude and outlook and see how much your life improves.
