Recommit defined as “make the conscious decision that you will take the daily actions necessary to realize your goal”. I woke up this morning and recommitted for the last 4 weeks as I approach my show. These last couple weeks have been a difficult balance of work stress, work out stress, prep stress, and general fatigue.

So today I made that decision to refocus harder. I awoke to crystalize a clear mission, purpose, and goal and reach down to again bring out my inner desire. I watched the Serena Williams You Tube video “Rise” https://youtu.be/t3DpBq9Y4F0 and was inspired more. The more real and visible to goal, the better focus I find.

Albert E. N. Gray, who wrote The Common Denominator of Success said, “The single thing that determines success and failure is that successful people develop the habit of doing the things that unsuccessful people won’t do.” In other words, successful people are willing to do the daily actions necessary to realize their goal.

So I have prepared my month ahead schedule and “turned up the heat” in my training. The final 10lbs of weight needs to be shred for the show date, getting posing down strong and confident stage attitude needs to be attained. I am hell bent on reaching this.

The world famous concert pianist of the early twentieth century Ignace Paderewski once told an interviewer, “If I fail to practice for one day, I hear the difference. If I fail to practice for three days, my friends can tell the difference. If I fail to practice for one week, the whole world knows it.” Paderewski knew the importance and value of daily commitment to practice and action steps to achieve his goals.

Now putting it into action! Off to the gym….
