Build a Streak You’re Proud of
The power of building streaks 🚀
It’s difficult to put into words. In the gym, Lunge & Learn, journaling, meditating, reading, etc. etc. For me, the two streaks that I’m most proud of are my Lunge & Learn streak and my training every day streak.
Lunge and Learn consists of lunging 400-800 meters while listening to personal development material and training every day.
Put together streaks that you’re proud of.
Ask yourself: what streaks can I start that will make a massive impact in my life? Here are a few suggestions 👇
#1 Go to the gym… you’re never going to regret going to the gym
#2 Daily GPP (general physical preparedness)… walking, running, lunging, whatever it is
#3 Journaling… Everyone’s version is different, give it a go
#4 Audiobook/Podcast/Relationships… Podcasts, audiobooks, relationships, etc.
Streaks create momentum. Momentum creates confidence. Confidence creates results. Results create a better way of life.
“Nothing tastes as good as being a champion.”
– Arnold Schwarzenegger
Fun fact… this quote is from an interview I did with Arnold Schwarzenegger at the old location of Old School Gym. He said he would think about these words every time he wanted to have a cheat meal during his prep.
