This Book …
RELENTLESS … From Good to Great to UNSTOPPABLE
By Tim S. Grover
I’ve tried getting into several Mindset and Business books recently but none of them have really grabbed my attention or had an impact on my mindset and motivation.
This one has been quite different.
Perhaps it’s because I’ve heard Mr. Grover speak and when reading the book I can hear his commanding and powerful voice speaking directly to me. The book is written just as he speaks.
- He commands attention
- He calls you on your excuses
- On your bullshit
- On your weakness
Grover reminds you that YOU are in control of your actions, mindset, and abilities. He reminds you that when you believe you’ve done enough, to DO MORE.
“The best of the best are always looking to get better”
This paragraph quoted below absolutely SCREAMS to me. It completely fits with my personal message. My health and mobility has had many highs and lows over the past few years … just a few years ago I needed a walker in order to go Christmas shopping at the mall. It was a terrible and humiliating experience for me. I know, I know … I’m not supposed to be ashamed of or embarrassed by my disability. I’m supposed to be comfortable in my own skin and all that jazz…
But I’m not comfortable when my body is at it’s weakest state! There is nothing comfortable about pain, stiffness, and immobility. There is nothing comfortable in that nagging feeling that any step you take could trigger that sharp stab of pain that would take you down to the ground. There is nothing comfortable in navigating through a busy shopping mall with an awkward and cumbersome walker.
Not for me at least. Not when I fully understand that my body is at my best when I make the effort and DO THE WORK.
Doing the work makes my life BETTER.
“People refuse to work out or control their diets because it’s not comfortable for them. But how comfortable can it be to drag around all that extra weight and all the physical problems that go along with it? Back pain, joint issues, shortness of breath, diabetes, heart problems … I’d estimate 85% of all physical discomfort comes from being overweight. Explain to me: If you can choose between being uncomfortable because you’re overweight and sick, or uncomfortable because you’re sweating at the gym three times a week, why do so many people choose the discomfort that leads to complete physical failure?”
Going to the gym, hydration, and clean eating allows me to be at my best. Just 5-10 pounds lost and I feel like an entirely different person. My movements become more confident. My posture becomes stronger and my stride becomes smoother. My energy levels increase. My mental focus improves. My mood and energy becomes positive.
It truly is a no-brainer isn’t it?
Yet so many people CHOOSE to be uncomfortable with health issues brought on by lack of movement and clean eating. And I’m not judging … because over the past few years I have spent more time making that choice and suffering the aches and pains and unhappiness that comes with my CHOSEN lifestyle. I’m not judging!! But I am recognizing my own habits of the past and what my CHOICES have cost me. I know I’m not alone!
There are no magic alternatives to diet and exercise. You can’t buy a supplement or a potion and skip the WORK. It’s just not an option.
All supplements and potions on the market today come with the same fine print – “Best results are achieved when combined with healthy diet and exercise”.
Let that sink in …
“Best results when combined with healthy diet and exercise”
If you CHOOSE not to exercise and eat healthy .. and you buy products that promise to make your health better .. you are throwing your money away and chasing constant disappointment.
DO THE WORK first …
DO THE WORK and allow your body to reach it’s best NATURAL potential.
Then add to it!!
I’m not saying that the supplements and potions on the market today aren’t excellent!
But bring your body to it’s best NATURAL potential before introducing any “miracle” systems to your routine.
