Such is the command of a UFC referee to start a fight.
Tis a fabulous saying to use in everyday life as well. When you arise each morning, “let’s get it on.”
Sprinting out of your bed may get you injured, or worse.
There’s a much safer procedure and one that is guaranteed to get you going every single day, even when you didn’t get a good night’s sleep.
I use it every morning at 5:55 or sooner.
I used it last week while in Las Vegas.
We flew in, got to bed late, and I was still up at my regularly scheduled time, even with the three-hour time change.
After we flew home, I was up until 2:20 a.m. – and I still catapulted out of bed before the bell tolled six.
Once I’m outside I sense some resistance to doing my workout. I most certainly do.
But I keep going because of how I’ve learned to communicate with my brain. My brain is there to serve me. I instruct it what to do – not the other way around.
If your brain wins the battle, you’re a slave to it. If you win the battle, your brain is your faithful servant. Remember this.
My workouts are never excursions with tee-vee or head phones to listen to music.
I recommend what the greatest thinkers and philosophers who ever lived did. They walked so they could think more clearly; they walked to meditate, to create and to solve problems.
Walking isn’t all they did either – and neither is it my only training – but it IS fundamental to being human. If you don’t walk your life will not have as much flow.
But how to get yourself going and keep yourself going in the morning, especially when you have good excuses for getting more sleep.
Number one, you believe in a daily discipline that you do without let-up, or else..
Or else what?
You flog yourself in some way.
Number two, you give yourself a reward for following your discipline and you have a punishment if you don’t.
By flogging I don’t mean you hurt yourself, You simply refuse to reward yourself – and that’s usually all it takes.
No coffee for you today, buddy, you didn’t train.
There are other tricks I use to keep inspiration levels high, even when you’re drowsy.
I also employ a wide variety of qi gong walking techniques – and just one of them, as my brother found, when combined with a diet the average know-it-all will consider “horrendous” has helped him successfully drop 50 pounds in 90 days at age 60.
You’ll learn all about these exercises and the “horrendous” dietary advice I gave him – when you’re a member of the Furey Faithful.
Come join me and the others all over this “whirld” who are living the dream.
IMPORTANT: As you browse the FureyFaithful homepage you’ll readily notice that “there are no testimonials from women” (I don’t call them “females” as that’s a classification for animals, not humans). Anyway, some women are a bit peeved at me, demanding an explanation.
“Hopefully this isn’t some misogynistic, he-man woman-hating society, is it?” one writer opined.
My answer: Men who give me testimonials are generally not stalked or persued by whack-jobs. Many of the women who’ve learned from me are verifiably gorgeous and incredibly fit. As a consequence, with photos, names and approximate local published, some goons have may harass them, and I’m not in favor of such a situation. So I’ve chosen to only publish men’s testimonials on my page as I will not fictionalize names, stories and so on.
