This week’s Surrounded by Idiots Radio Podcast episode is about how chasing good feels will lead you to your doom.
A couple of days ago, while working out, I hit that point where the good feels went away and my body and mind became very irritated.
Just then, I realized, this happens a lot in life…starting off pumped up…hitting an uncomfortable spot…doubting yourself or making excuses…then quitting…then feeling terrible that you quit…then getting mad…starting the process again…and end up in the same place.
It’s all because of Good Feels…
Because we are human, we have a tendency to what to create pleasure in our lives instead of pain.
But, in order to reach a life objective, like getting in shape, there is not way around it…there’s a lot of pain involved.
And, if you don’t embrace the pain, the uncomfortable, as a part of the journey, then you will never get to where you want to go.
- Things I talk about include:
- Why we have this crazy expectation that following our passion means constantly feeling good about the process?
- Why most people at the gym look the same year after year
- How to push past the pain and get to your fulfilling objective.
