Think about this for a moment
Your forty’s are almost over, you catch a glimpse of your reflection in a shop window and see an overweight, overworked, totally stressed version of your former self looking back. Less than 10 years ago when life was about to begin for you as you blew out the candles on that birthday cake and made that wish… You now stop and think back to that moment, as you look at that reflection, with that one thought inside your head “what the F**K happened to me“. All those things you were going to do, and you did nothing. Almost ten years of New Years resolutions have since past, you’re now overweight, depressed and a borderline diabetic. It’s time to do something about it.
It’s time to be FAST @ 50
Hi my name is Mark Mooney, the good looking one on the right. At the age of 50 I decided I was going to take massive action and do something that was going to change my life forever.
After leaving the army at the age of forty I set out to make my fortune and created what was once a successful business. What I failed to do however, was to look after my body, my years of living a full active lifestyle in the army counted for nothing. I abused my body, by working 24/7 living out of my car, eating fast food, or just grabbing a big breakfast at a networking meeting or getting home late and eating all the wrong food just hours before going to bed. Then waking up and doing the whole thing over again. I worked hard on my business, but not on myself, chasing a goal regardless of the consequences.
So what changed for me….
Time to wake up!
I must admit there have been times when I just can’t be bothered, this physical stuff is hard sometimes and its easy to lose that motivation (that mojo), and use your age as an excuse. Simple answer DON’T!
Goal Setting – The Key to Success
It goes without saying that setting a goal is a fundamental process to achieving any objective. One of my personal goals is to have a six-pack at 60. Yes you guessed it… that’s not me in the picture, not yet!
Nevertheless it does give me something to aim for, something I know is achievable, with some hard work and dedication. Let’s see what happens eh… I will be documenting my progress, watch this space…
