Let’s Quit Saying ‘Quit While You Are Ahead!”

Good news! Turns out the only kidney I was writing about in March, is in great shape! Better than sometimes led to believe when I feel lethargic .

Even more so, I feel empowered after these doctors’ appointments. This appointment I just had however, it feels more like a progression than I have felt in a while . So, there is a motivation to stay at peak care instead of keep humming along.

Health is one area where you cannot quite do as the saying goes , “quit while you are ahead”. Heck, no one in my sphere really thinks like that, and I’m blessed to have that circle.

Which brings me to the bigger picture, does anyone really quit while they are ahead? I’ve seen stories of people retiring in their 20s. But generally, I don’t believe so. In fact, I think most when they reach a peak feeling will work to find ways to keep at that peak feeling. Athletes never rest until they get the chip, get seriously injured or viciously hit , at which point they’d have to start from scratch health-wise.

If you are resting on laurels And progress in 2019, I’d say don’t do that! Grow on the progress to end the year STRONG! Grow the Laurels to bigger and better heights!

I appreciate on my podcast, where I just got my first check, the new balance for making more with Spreaker didn’t start from scratch, it rolls over into the new cycle!

It’s time to build up more, not re-build. It’s time to lead from AHEAD not from behind. Complacency can not be accepted by anyone of themselves. I’m working on that each day, but it took a new progress report to truly not be complacent. In anything.

Are you with me?
