Real-Life Change


Hi Everyone,

Hope all’s well in your part of the world. I had a life-changing experience recently.

I was flying to Zurich for business a few days ago when I had a profound moment of clarity.

I realised that I had a chip on my shoulder… A big one.
It was to do with money and rich people.

I was reading the in-flight magazine and it was full of articles that included wealthy and successful people doing what they did well. I felt really happy for them and I was excited by the fact that they were so passionate about their fields.
I realised that for a long time, I had believed deep-down that rich people didn’t deserve their wealth. Or that they were mean, superficial or deficient in some other way.

I was so wrong.
It just wasn’t true.
I was hatin’.

Why should I feel bad about someone else’s success?
Why should I feel bad about something completely detached from my reality?

These people had nothing to do with me at all! Why couldn't I just do my own thing?
I know that I feel uncomfortable when something good happens to me and other people seem to be unhappy with my success but I realised that I was doing the same thing with people that had more money than me.

It was really unlike me. Why waste the energy? Why bother?
At that moment, I also realised that “I make me happy”.
I feel my own feelings and I think my own thoughts, not someone else’s.

I’ll never know or experience what anyone else actually thinks or feels, so why should I try to change my behaviour to please other people.

Sure, I don’t want to harm anyone else, but as long as I’m not harming others why shouldn’t I look to please myself.

I realised that s
ince nobody else is going to do it, it’s your job to make yourself happy.

And if you can make yourself happy and make a lot of other people happy as well then that’s even better!

Throughout this whole time I felt a heightened level of awareness.
It was like I had reached a new level of clarity.

I was fired up to challenge myself more and more.
Those next few days I woke up at 6am and ran from my hotel down to Lake Zurich.

From then on I knew that anything was possible.
Its amazing. Whatever I put my mind to, I can do.

But its the same for everyone. Everyone can do it!

Live BIG! Live EPIC! Go for it everybody!
Thanks for reading,
Sergei

Day 2 of the 90 day Challenge!

Hi everyone,

Day 2 of the 90 day challenge went well!

I woke up at 6 and hit the gym. 

Nutrition
Breakfast - Yoghurt with berries. Flat white.
Lunch- salad.
Dinner- roast turkey and salad.
Drinks – 1 flat white.
Snacks - carrot cake, snickers bar.
 

I'm not too pleased with my nutrition today but that's ok, tomorrow will be better.
Avoiding negative influences
Listened to some rap music today, not ideal... but I love it haha
Seeking positive influences
Watched some good youtube videos.
Talking to new people
Didn't really get the chance to talk to anyone new today but I was a lot more talkative with people generally, so i'll see how this goes.

Creative - Nothing.
Today made me realise how hard it is to stay fit, creative and fun while working full-time haha... i'll keep at it though!

Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading!

Day 1 of the 90 day Challenge!

Hi everyone,

Day 1 of the 90 day challenge went well!

I woke up at 8.30 (which is pretty early for me for a Sunday) exercised, got a coffee, Skyped my family, did some housework, shopped, explored my neighbourhood and am blogging about it all now.

Morning exercise/Exercise

In the morning I did some abdominal exercises and then went for a half-hour run. Later in the day I felt like moving again so I ran down to a basketball court and shot some hoops.

Creative

During the day, I checked out Columbia Rd flower market, went to Bethnal Green Garden, read the Bhagavad Gita, meditated and did some drawing. I also researched some guitar shops and book shops in London and I plan to check those out next weekend.

Nutrition
Breakfast - Yoghurt with berries. Flat white.
Lunch- celery, tomatoes, berries, fruit and nuts.
Dinner- steak with mushrooms.

Drinks – water, homemade lemonade.


I’m happy with today’s nutrition. It wasn’t particularly different to what I’d usually eat but I did specifically avoid buying any soft-drink or other processed food.

Again I’ve noticed how important hydration is in regulating appetite. I stayed hydrated today and although I snacked on fruits/berries/nuts etc I figured that this was much better than bingeing on processed sugars/fats.

Avoiding negative influences
I actively avoided watching TV today and have not consumed as much mass media online. Its hard to break the habit because its so easy to do, but I will make sure to avoid my exposure to negative influences and negative media.

Seeking positive influences
I listened to a lot of good youtube clips while cleaning up and doing things around the house. I know that repetition is key to having the ideas sink in, so I’ll definitely keep doing this.

Talking to new people
This bit was harder than I first imagined but I did speak to some people while I went out to play basketball and I’m planning to stick to being open, approachable and talkative.
A colleague of mine talks to everyone in any situation without feeling embarrassed or shy so I really want to emulate that in my own way.

Conclusion
I hope this challenge has got you thinking. You might not get up and change right now but if you stick with the idea, you will change. “You become what you think about”

Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading!

The 90 day Challenge!


Hi Everyone,

Just letting you know that today. I've had it!

It's over.

I'm not putting up with it any longer.

I'm not putting up with so-so.
And I'm not putting up with average.

I'm going to live the life I want to live.

I'm grateful for a lot but I know that there’s a lot more living to do for me and I’m starting tonight! (It’s 10pm in London right now)

For the next 90 days, I will:
-exercise every morning
-eat a ‘raw food’ diet
-actively avoid negative influences (junk TV, mass media etc)
-actively seek out positive influences (real-life role-models, mentors, online videos etc)
-blog daily about my results
-do something creative daily and
-strike up a conversation with a stranger
(to overcome shyness and to meet new people as I’ve just moved to London)

If I relapse/or catch myself slipping in any of these areas I promise to start again at day zero.

I’m excited about this already and think that this experiment is going to have a huge effect.

I’m not sure exactly what to expect, but I have a feeling that it’s going to be good.

Catch you tomorrow!
Sergei
