Million Dollar Discipline

1) Say no to instant gratification.  Including but not limited to: food, drinks, alcohol, drugs, porn, social media, TV, Netflix, gaming, gossiping, shopping, texting, and friggin’ fanboying.

2) Embrace pain.  Difficult tasks, uncomfortable conversations, acknowledging and solving complex problems.

3) Drink only water.  All day, every day.  But only if you like clear skin, perfect poops, increased brain power, more energy, getting sick less often, and keeping weight off.

4) Work out.  At least once a day, every day.  I’ve been experimenting with two lower intensity workouts a day.  What I’m seeing?  More creativity; more energy; less desire to eat bad; more learning (audiobooks, homie); easier to convince myself to go do it because I know it’s low intensity; a bad day is still one workout, as compared to no workout; and of course, my abs are back, b*tches.

Willard Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney quotes: some smooth sentences from politician and businessman, Mr. Mitt Romney.

“Think carefully about the habits of your life.  You deserve to be happy, and America deserves your wise choices.”

“You don’t have to be larger than life to be a hero, just larger than yourself.”

Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins

Anthony Hopkins quotes: Hannibal Lecter’s best quotes.

“Dreams mean everything.  They’re the stories we tell ourselves of what could be, who we could become.”

Christopher Julius Rock

Bonnie Lynn Hunt

Bonnie Hunt quotes: on going from poor to more; Midwest to Hollywood; nurse to actress.

“If I’ve learned one thing in life, it’s: stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.”

“When you fail by your own standards, it’s a form of success.”

“Acting was a hobby.  Growing up in my neighborhood, I didn’t really think it would be possible to act, but my dad always told us to go for our dreams.  I was really lucky to be a nurse first, because it’s given me the gift of perspective.  One of my patients told me, ‘When are you going to go out to L.A.?’  I said, ‘I’m not going to because then I’d fail and have to come back and explain myself.’  He told me, ‘Bonnie, I’m facing the end of my own life and one of my biggest regrets is not going out and failing a few times.’  So he made me promise I would.  And I’ve failed many times, but I’ve learned from them.  You always learn more from your failures than successes.”
