Her: "Hi. How ya doing?"
Me: "Better than I deserve."
Her: "haha... well, that's good to hear. What can I get for you?"
Me: "Uh, two slices of pepperoni, a garlic knot and a Diet Coke."
Her: (tapping the screen to ring up my total) That'll will be $5.15.
Me: "$5.15? For all that?"
Her: "Yup. Your answer made me smile and you deserve a discount for that. I like your attitude."
Me: "Wow! Thanks!"
"Better than I deserve". I really mean it too. When someone asks you that question how do you answer it? I'm not suggesting you have to force yourself to answer this way... but really think about it. How are you? Probably actually better than you deserve.
I don't like working out. At all. I've tried to like it. Really, I have. I just end up liking pizza and lattes better. I have a friend who used to be the same way. Meet my friend Jon. Jon thinks differently about food and exercise now. (see picture below)
This isn't going to be a long, drawn out post. I still don't like working out and maybe it's not even a good example for this post. I could still stand to loose a few pounds around the waist. But here's the point - Jon got sick and tired of something in his life. So, he decided to change. That's it. Ask him.
So, today - just change something. Want a better job? Take a step today to getting it. Want more money? Stop spending so much and start a budget (I can help with that one here and here). Be nicer. Sleep more/better. Less stress. Start running. Go buy some Nike shoes. I hear they help you get started doing stuff.
