Here’s Your Challenge

Finally, the day you’ve all been waiting for. (Right?) This is the finale of our recent series and there’s a CALL TO ACTION that I’ve been hinting to you about. For those of you reading this for the first time, here’s a quick summary. We’ve been talking about the psychology of success and happiness and I’ve shared some insights on…

And as promised, here’s the challenge… taking all those theoretical concepts and putting them into action!

But before I get into the details, a few thoughts on why you should take on this challenge. If you are like most people, you’ve started many things to get from point A to point B but quit in the process. For example, “I want to lose weight so I will start a diet.” You quit because it got too hard when someone suggested beer/pizza/ice cream night. Another example: “I want to wake up early and start every morning with a good run.” One day it rains and your 5-day streak is broken and now you can’t even remember where your running shoes are. Or, how about this one? “I am going to journal everyday.” But you realized your drawer is full of colorful journals that are 1/4 way filled and the rest are blank pages. You somewhere, somehow, stopped and never went back to finish it.

Most people lack the discipline and willpower to do what they set out to do. Most people don’t do what they say they are going to do. Most people don’t execute consistently. But imagine this: what would it be worth to you if you could create within yourself the following skills to get it done?

  • Discipline
  • Self Worth
  • Fortitude
  • Grit
  • Self Control
  • Self Esteem
  • Confidence

Read those bullet points again and think to yourself, what kind of a person would I be if I had all these skills in my life? Well, you know what these skills will equal? They equal MENTAL TOUGHNESS. I believe if you possess these skills in your life, you will be on your way to living bigger. Guaranteed!

So, here’s the million-dollar question. How do I possess these skills in my life? Answer: Do hard things. What hard things? These specific hard things. For 75 straight days. Follow this program. Zero deviations, zero compromises. You cannot tailor this program to your liking or to your convenience. You have to follow it. And if you miss a day or miss a minute, you have to start over from day 1. Cool? Cool.

The 75 Hard Challenge was created in 2019 by entrepreneur Andy Frisella, a podcaster and CEO of the supplement company 1st Phorm. 75 Hard is not a trendy fitness challenge, but a “transformative mental toughness program.” This will be the hardest thing you’ve ever done and once you complete it, you’ll say to yourself, this is the greatest thing I have ever done. But before you jump in and begin, listen to this podcast describing the program and what you are getting yourself into and once you make your decision to start, go to this page and sign up. There are hundreds and thousands of people doing it with you. You can also hashtag #75hard and hear their stories, their challenges, their questions, and even their answers.

Why are we doing this? Because in order to gain the skills of mental toughness, you have to intentionally put yourself in uncomfortable places. 75 days, 0 deviations, 0 compromises, 100% pure awesomeness. Are you ready? 

75 Hard Challenge:

  • Pick a diet and stick to it. Commit to your diet, whatever that is for you. Building mental discipline. No cheat meals. Eating clean…don’t miss the point. Choose a diet pertaining to your goals. No junk. No alcohol.
  • Drink 1 gallon of water everyday. Health benefits?
  • (2) 45-minute workouts. One has to be outdoors. It’s supposed to be inconvenient. Only did 44 minutes outside? Start over. Conditions won’t be perfect. Do it no matter what especially when no one else is doing it. (Don’t put yourself in danger tho…). This is empowerment. This will help build you. This is what champions are made of. Doing something when no one else is doing it. You can also do both 45-minute sessions outside.
  • Read 10 pages of a non-fiction book everyday. Learn new stuff time, not entertainment time. Not audio, not digital, not coloring, not 5 sentences on each page…lol.
  • Take a progress picture everyday. Not just to show your physical transformation…which is awesome…but so that you don’t forget the little details. The incremental changes you don’t want to overlook. Huge deal. Show your body in your picture. Keep it private. This is just for you. No need to share. 

Okay, are you ready for this? This is not the next thing…this is THE thing. Reply back and let me know you are in!
