75 Hard Challenge. Round 2.
75 hard. After a couple of failed attempts earlier this year, I have been contemplating giving 75 hard another try. For the last 30 days, I have been participating in this course that has encouraged me to focus at least 15 minutes of my day on a project of my choice. The course has taught me that I DO have time - I absolutely do. To say that "I don't have time" is no longer an excuse that I can use. I have learned that you will prioritize what you care about. For 30 days, I showed up for this course and gave my all for a project that means a lot to me. For the next 75 days, I'm going to continue to show up for myself as I aim to achieve mental toughness and become the healthiest and best version of me.
Let me tell you a little bit about this course I took. The course is called Launch by Mel Robbins. If you don't know who Mel Robbins is, go look her up (like, right now). She also has an amazing podcast. She is the best and honestly feels like a long distance best friend. Haha! In the middle of this course, there is what she calls a "30 day sprint." During this 30 days, you are to be working on a project of your choosing. The project can be anything - meeting a weight loss goal, organizing a room in your home, getting your finances in order, starting a business... literally anything. Each day during the 30 days, you are watching a short video, working in the course workbook, and spending at least 15 minutes (it can be longer) working on that project. At the end of the 30 days, you find that you were really working on yourself the whole time. I have learned so much. This course has been a habit starter! I have got in the habit of showing up every day for the past month, and I just want to keep going. I did something for 30 days that allowed me to see actual results because I didn't give up, and that brings me to the 75 hard challenge. I've been saying that as soon as this 30 day sprint was over, I would focus my attention on improving another area of my life. This time, it is mental toughness. The month of August has been rough, guys. A lot has happened. There have been a lot of changes going on at work. A lot going on personally. The fact that I still showed up, despite life's curve balls, is awesome and encourages me to believe that I can successfully make it through the next 75 days.
