The Lessons Learned This Week
Success comes in many forms. This week I took particular notice of the many great things in my life that I may take for granted now and then. Tim Ferriss had a conversation with Seth Godin, who to anyone that knows him would consider him a very successful person. But he does not define himself as successful because of the 18+ best-selling books he has written or because he has the most read blog on the internet or the squillions of dollars he has in his bank account. He’s successful because he measures success on the difference he makes in peoples lives. He doesn’t compare himself with others and he has the attitude most of us don’t…. He asks, “How much money do we actually need?”
The lesson for me; stop comparing myself to others, want things I already have, help people, love unconditionally and “stuff’ doesn’t make you successful.
Social Media Warm & Fuzzy’s
If I don’t have adventure and things that push my limits in my life I don’t feel like I’m living. Here’s a post that inspired me to want to jump off some stuff!
Leaders To Follow
Robin Sharma wrote 2 books that I have read more than any other books I have collected, the best one being The Saint, The Surfer & The CEO, the other, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. Happiness and success comes from the inside.
Books/Articles I’m Reading.
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a book that helped me to switch off. I read so much but it’s usually self help or health & fitness articles so to read a ‘story’ is an awesome way for me to escape. I first read this in Year 10 at school but I picked it up last week and it really is one of the best stories I’ve read. There are so many lessons contained in these pages. I f#@king hate racism and have no time for it in my life so to read a tale of a family embracing people despite the rest of societies ignorance is inspiring to me.
Recipes I’m Loving.
Gut health is making the headlines in the health and fitness magazines at the moment and I’m currently working very closely with a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist to improve my health from the inside, starting with my gut health. I’ll do this as naturally as I can.
You can buy it pre-made but I’ve started making my own Kombucha, which is produced by fermenting tea using a “symbiotic ‘colony’ of bacteria and yeast,” called a Scoby With lots of claimed health benefits there is little scientific backing to support such claims. There are several documented cases of serious adverse effects, including fatalities, related to kombucha drinking, possibly arising from contamination during home preparation. So please be sensible.
Thanks for reading and catch you next week.
