The Best Work You Ever Do Is Working On You

the best work you ever do is working on you

Throughout time, there have been some pretty amazing people who have lived on this planet.   I have witnessed, just like many of you, people overcome some of the most harrowing obstacles and circumstances in life and achieve great success. It truly is a testament to the human will to achieve their wildest desires.

But what did each one of these people have in common?  What did they do that many of us don’t? They believed  and worked hard on themselves.  They knew that if they just simply started with that, that anything else could and would be possible.  So with that belief ingrained into every fiber of their body, they set out to work on themselves.

I have talked about being responsible for yourself before here on the blog and you know how I feel about believing in yourself.  It’s an absolute must in the pursuit of greatness.  And greatness takes work. It’s not something that you can go into half-heartedly and lackluster.

Now I am not telling you to quit your job and move to a deserted area and put yourself through hell.  I am talking about every day a couple of hours of intense work on your goals.  And it needs to be the whole gamut:  physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Work on your body because it is your temple and it’s the only one you got.  Work on it because being sick and unhealthy sucks. There is honestly no other way to tell you.  Trust, me I am getting back in shape now from a four-month layoff!

Feed your brain and work on that mental fitness.  Try and read at least a minimum of 15 minutes a day. Try and read both fiction and non-fiction books.  Why? Because the fiction will feed your creative side and the nonfiction will inspire you to push yourself farther.  A great book I recommend is The School of Greatness book by Lewis Howes.  Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.  It’s chock full of great information on living a full and meaningful life and leaving your mark on the world.

Finally, work on your emotional state.  Whether you believe in a Higher Power or not or just the Universe become in tune about yourself.  Also, surround yourself with people who want to see you succeed in life.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t have negative people around me anymore.  I left all of that in my past life and old job.  I refused to carry that over to my new job and life.

And you should remember that, too.  Remember all of these points.  Remember that hard work takes a belief in yourself first.  If you can do that, half of the work is already done.

What are you going to work on today to make your life better?

  1. Investing in yourself is the best investment you could ever make. I believe this is a good practice by working on something for you everyday. I really need to add that time into my busy schedule so thank you for that reminder.

  2. This is sooo inspiring! You are absolutely right, self-belief is everything. Mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness, and that was something I realized only after I became physically fit. I realized I was still carrying a lot of negative thoughts, and still suffered from lack of confidence. But all it really takes is believing in yourself, even if no one else does. Reading definitely makes a lot of difference! I’ve been meaning to read that book you mentioned, been following Lewis Howes on Instagram..very inspiring man. Whenever I read any of your posts, it’s like its always exactly what I needed to hear. Love this : “Work on your body because it is your temple and it’s the only one you got. Work on it because being sick and unhealthy sucks.”. I just couldn’t have said it better. Great post!

    1. I appreciate you taking the time to read my posts each time. And you are right, we must be work on all three fitness areas. Being physically fit but still carrying negative thoughts keeps you from growing. Glad you realized in time. 🙂

  3. Beautifully written. Totally agree. Until we love our self, we shall never be at peace with the world. We have the power for continual improvement, but I think people think it’s easier to complain in life than work hard on one’s self.

    Excellent read!
