They Hated Him.
His biggest fans burned his jersey. They cursed his name. They wished he was never born.
When Lebron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers he went from the biggest star in the NBA, to the most hated man in sports. Just like that, in an instance.
This post is about his road to redemption.
It’s about how he elevated himself to a new level of super-stardom.
In this guest post from my buddy Robert James Collier you’ll learn:
- The secret behind ‘Post Traumatic Growth’
- How he used his daily habits to create a new skillset. One that the basketball world had never seen.
- The common thread between elite performers like Lebron, Picasso and Steve Jobs.
Another day dawns. Typically, it goes something like this…
The alarm sounds on your smartphone. Ugh. You grab it, hit snooze, and… You awake to look at the clock and it’s been well over an hour. “WTF just happened!?” The day is now well underway. The detour has left you scrambling for time and running late for your work, without achieving anything you intended.
A wonderfully unproductive start.
The day then continues on a sidewards course. You still feel half asleep, you’re angry that you didn’t get to eat and exercise like you wanted, and you just can’t seem to get on top of things. It’s like you’re always one step behind…
Does this sound familiar? Sadly, it’s an all too regular occurrence, especially as your workload increases, your commitments heighten, and you try to cram more into each and every day. You seem to have more to do, and less time to do it.
How do you break this destructive cycle? What if there was a way to put yourself on the right foot as soon as the alarm sounds? What if, when you wake up, you’re able to create your most productive day ever and really kickstart your life into gear instead?
A guest post from Colin Robertson at Willpowered.co.
“Is there a way to strengthen someone’s willpower?”
That was the question on researchers’ minds as they learned more about how the science behind this human virtue. Through many tests, they had discovered that willpower is like a muscle – it gets tired from overuse and requires food to replenish.
So, if it does act like a muscle, can it also be strengthened?
After several studies, we have our answer! With the right practice, willpower can be strengthened just like any other muscle in the body.
Fair warning: like all practice, these workouts can be challenging. After all, you will be exerting your willpower in the same way that you would exert your legs on a run. But they are scientifically proven to get you results.
So although it will be difficult in the short-term, eventually it will be easier to say no to temptations, make it to the gym and stick with your long-term goals!
