Habits where are they leading you?

Your daily habits will determine the outcome of your life.  The secret to your success can be found in your daily agenda.  Successful people don’t just drift to victory.  Individuals who achieve big dreams don’t get there by accident.  The longer you practice good habits in a positive, disciplined, and focused way, the greater the chance your future will be positive.  The longer you practice bad habits, the greater the chance it will be negative.

Habits have a cumulative effect – but the results don’t usually show up until much later in life.  If the habits are bad, by the time the damage is evident, it’s often too late to alter the results.  That’s why you need to take control of your habits at your earliest opportunity!

Robert Ringer (Speaker and author), expounds on the power of positive habits.  “The world is saturated with intelligent, highly educated, extraordinarily skilled people, who experience ongoing frustration because of their lack of success.  Millions of others spend their lives working hard, long hours only to die broke.”

His solution?  Cultivate the right habits and practice them regularly.

Remember, life is nothing more than the sum total of many successful years; a successful year is nothing more than the sum total of many successful months; a successful month is nothing more than the sum total of many successful weeks; a successful week is nothing more than the sum total of many successful days.  That’s why practicing successful habits day in and day out is the most certain way to win over the long term.

Habits are important in achieving your dream.  If your habits don’t line up with your dream, then you need to either change your habits or change your dream.  If you want to hold on to your dream, then be prepared for a battle to change your habits because a bad habit never goes away by itself.

But you have to be willing to make such changes.  Won’t the effort be worth it if you know that down the road your new habits are going to get you closer to your dream?  Think of it as your very own undo-it-yourself project.

When we start a new program to change our lives it goes against the habits that we have created over the years.  This is why it is so important to schedule out our days and weeks.  It will feel un-natural to do something different but as we do stick to the new way of life and form new habits we will start reaching the goals that we ultimately want to achieve.

Daily Success 3/25/2013 – I even had the nickname, Pudge

I have always been chubby. As a kid I even had the nickname, Pudge. I never really thought much about my health until my wife was diagnosed with a chronic illness that effected her brain and every aspect of her life. So far, she’s undergone seven surgeries, including 6 brain surgeries. That was a MAJOR wakeup call for us. After her last surgery we decided to change our lifestyle knowing that we couldn’t change her chronic illness but we could save ourselves from other illnesses by focusing on our health.
We both started drinking Shakeology and focusing on nutrition. I also started and finished P90X, Tai Cheng, and we tackled the Ultimate Reset together. Since then I have so much more energy. My friends and family are astonished with my results. I’m happier, healthier, and my life has been enhanced SO MUCH this past year through Beachbody.

Thanks to P90X I got the six-pack that I always wanted. After that intense program I needed a little rest, so I went straight into Tai Cheng. Tai Cheng was low impact but I realized once I got started that it really works you out! The core strengthening was amazing. My posture and core have never been better.

Shakeology made a big difference, too. I’m a Registered Nurse doing home healthcare so I spend most of my day in my car. It used to be easy to grab fast food, but with Shakeology I don’t have to do that. I carry my shaker cup and have lunch on the go. Before Shakeology, I used to chug 4-5 cups of coffee a day to keep me going. But since Shakeology, I haven’t had a cup.

Daily Success 2/22/2013 – I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer



I was never really into exercise. But when I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer, I knew my life was going to change drastically. After a total mastectomy of my right breast and chemotherapy, I was weak, depressed, and totally convinced that I needed to make some life changes.

So at the urging of my daughter and Coach, I started drinking Shakeology daily and incorporating exercise into my routine at age 71! I chose Shakeology because I wanted my body to receive all of the essential nutrients I need for adapting a healthier lifestyle. I fell in love with it and Shakeology is a big part of my daily routine.

And it has really helped now that I’m so much more active. I chose Body Gospel because I’m a Christian woman and it’s a faith-based program with up-tempo gospel music an exercise moves that make you feel like dancing and praising the Lord.

But I’ve always had stiffness and joint pain, so I chose to do Tai Cheng because it’s supposed to improve flexibility and relieve joint pain and stiffness. Guess what? They both worked. I’ve lost a few inches around my waist. But the best thing is the flexibility I’ve gained through Tai Cheng!

I love the way my body feels after exercise. I have more energy. I feel young. And both Tai Cheng and Body Gospel have made me appreciate my life more. I’ve stopped making excuses. I start my day off with a workout. And now I can keep up with my grand- and great grandchildren and enjoy my golden years with my husband. And for that, I give praise!

Daily Success 1/18/2013 – Even though I’ve struggled with chronic pain


Even though I’ve struggled with chronic pain in my neck and shoulders from a car accident 10 years ago, I loved doing TurboFire. Then, when I injured my knee doing something else, my worst thought was, ‘I’m not going to get back to TurboFire for a year!’

It took a month and a half before I could even walk around. Add the pain from my neck and shoulders and I finally said, ‘enough is enough’ and started looking for an answer. I saw some people talking about how Tai Cheng had strengthened their knee so they could get back to doing what they loved.

So I began Tai Cheng with pain in my shoulders, neck and knee. At first, it took all I had to keep up as I struggled with pain in my shoulders holding myself up in plank position. But within a month, I began noticing how my knee was beginning to heal faster and how my body felt so stress-free after the workouts.

Today, my shoulder pain is gone. My neck pain is gone. I can plank pain free and keep up with Dr. Cheng. What I like most about Tai Cheng is that it centered me, strengthened me, and kept me aware of my body and how I can align it better. It’s such a powerful feeling.

But the best thing Tai Cheng gave me is my knee is back to being 100%! I can even do jumps. It is such a blessing. I can’t thank Dr. Cheng and Beachbody enough for giving me back full use of my knee!
