This basically means I do my best. My best to get to this happy place, full of energy, knowing I’m doing my thing. Sometimes succeeding, sometimes less, but in general, just doing my best to live an ‘oof’ life daily.
I don’t know what your ‘top’ is, and for the sake of this argument, it’s not so critical for me. The important thing is you know what it is. So here’s the question –
what’s the top for you in your life – what does it mean, how does it feel, and what does it look like?
Use this powerful tool you have of your imagination. Set aside what you’re doing if it’s not on the way to your top.
Close your eyes and imagine – what your daily top looks like.
Then go about doing what you can to get there today.
Can you do that daily? There are many ways and methods to do that, I will not get into them here. The foundation is one:
Get clear on what you want your life to look and feel like.
Once you have that – there are many ways to proceed, I mentioned tracking your progress above. This is all easier to say than do, I get it, not everyone has ‘oof’ days so often, let alone on a daily basis.
But what if that was your first goal? To have more ‘oof’ days in your life, to have them regularly and more and more often? What would that require?
If you know what you want and have more and more ‘oof’ days getting there, you are on the right path.
Think about it like training for a marathon, set that goal for yourself, and start training towards it.
Once you get to that goal, you’ll see your top may have moved and changed, or even before getting to it, you notice who you are, changes the world around you, and your daily top transforms its look or feel. Pay attention and tweak whatever needs tweaking to get you closer.
If you go for daily incremental training to get to your top – who knows where you’ll be in one year from now? Can you imagine?
Here’s a real pro who gets to the top to inspire you:
