Make today matter. Today’s motivational podcast episode from Confidence on the Go challenges you with five questions to get you to take Carpe Diem from a state of common knowledge to actual, lived out common practice.

  • You become what you think about.
  • Life is fragile, you aren’t guaranteed tomorrow.
  • Refuse to let yourself keep wasting your own life, start living like you are meant to
  • First, we make our attitudes, then our attitudes make us. -Dennis Waitley

Episode #23 Notes:

The tragic shooting in DC brought to light the unpredictability of life.   Living 55 miles from DC and in a community of commuters, DC hits close to the heart. Tragedy ignites awareness of the human condition.  It inspires me to take a fresh look at life and my own frame of reference. 

Today matters.  Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

There is a difference between common knowledge and common practice.  I used to live with this as common knowledge but did not put it into common practice and that is exactly what I want to challenge you to do today. 

A native American boy was talking with his grandfather. “What do you think about the world situation? He asked. The grandfather replied, “ I feel like wolves are fighting in my heart. One is full of anger and hatred; the other is full of love, forgiveness, and peace.” “Which one will win?” asked the boy. To which the grandfather replied, “The one I feed.” (Origin Unknown)   YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT.

  • How long will you continue to sabotage yourself and the real you in order to play the blame game for your unhappiness?
  • How long will you keep making excuses when you aren’t guaranteed tomorrow?  
  • How many more hours of your day will you waste comparing yourself to others or self-conscious of their judgment?
  • What are you putting off because you are stuck in the past, in your own self-imposed limitations or because of self-doubt and fear?
  • Quite simply, what are you putting off that you really want to accomplish?

No more tomorrows, today is the day.

I am giving away one of my own running plan for anyone wanting to run a 5k, 10K, or marathon.  I even have another option for my non-runners out there: a WALKING half marathon plan.   Each plan typically sells for $50, so this is a steal of a deal! All you have to do is write a review on Amazon for one of my books or in iTunes for my show or app. 

You can select one program per review that you write for the following options:

(1). Review The Skinny, Sexy Mind: The Ultimate French Secret

(2). Review my ebook Building a Better Body Image: 50 Days to Loving Yourself from the Inside Out 

(3). Review my podcast show Confidence on the Go in iTunes under podcasts

(4). Review one of my iOS apps in iTunes

So, just write a review (and this is on the honor system) and then let me know which running training program you’d like in return.  If you’d like more than one program (which I recommend since they’re not always going to be free!), then simply pick another product to review!

Pretty simple! Now there’s no excuse not to have a consistent workout plan! Just do it.
