3 Steps to Thrive vs. Survive

So many people are in survival mode. Are you one of them? Waking up fatigued, joining in the outlandish line ups to get your liquid fuel and perhaps a bagel or some other substance that might be considered breakfast only to continue on your day with more coffee, followed by lunch out with co-workers or clients where you give yourself the excuse that you deserve what you want today so you go for the fries with the burger. You only live once! How bad can it be?! That afternoon low where a nap would be so effortless if only given the chance is easily suppressed with a can of soda (it’s just one a day) just to finish off the day at home with something simple – pasta with meat sauce if you didn’t just pick up a pizza on the way home instead. You dive into bed in exhaustion and think to yourself, “I’ll be better tomorrow.”  


From an outside perspective looking in this is what I call survival mode. Some are worried about the extra donut they have here and there while there are many who live off of energy drinks and alcohol. I’ve been amongst the worst, which is why I’m so passionate about helping people get through to the other side. I’ve worked with hundreds of clients to get them out – and it’s not easy until, well, it’s easy.

“Most people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel.” –Kevin Trudeau

The question is do you want to survive or do you want to thrive? Only you can answer. Webmd shows many studies with evidence that even just consuming that “one” soda a day can increase your risk for heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure and can even be linked to kidney damage and of course obesity. When you’re ready to say thrive I’ll give you my 3 top steps to getting there.

$11.     Take a Step Back and Reassess. Since becoming an entrepreneur I tend to relate health to business often. If you continue to work “in” your business and don’t step back and work “on” your business – you just won’t see it grow. The same goes for your health. If you can’t step out and be objective to see where some changes can be made you won’t ever make the changes. Part of this reassessment comes in asking yourself three questions: 1. How do I feel? 2. What do I consume everyday? 3. What am I willing to change right now?

$12.     Set two specific goals for yourself over the next two weeks. Not “I want to be healthier”. Make it actionable and habitual. Something like: I want to try two new recipes on Sundays or I’m going to start my day with ½ liter of water before my coffee. Or pack a water bottle to work. Or maybe it’s “I’m going to drink 6 beers and no shots.”

$13.     Repeat steps one and two.

Survive or thrive? Which will you choose?
