    4 Steps To Achieve Big Goals! By CEO, Todd Abrams

    4 Steps To Achieve Big Goals! By CEO, Todd Abrams

    Before you get to work, let's get your mind right. If you're not mentally strong you'll never be able to achieve your potential. Everything GREAT that you've achieved in life so far began with a single thought, a realization. The following framework will bring you clarity, allowing you to do the work and build the life that you were destined to create!

     

    Your Why

    Before you consider what you're capable of achieving, take a moment and consider why you should. Write a list of the people, things, and experiences in your life that mean the most. Here's one of mine:

    • I love my family and will provide for them at any cost. In order to do so, I must take care of my mind, body, and spirit at the highest level.

    If you were to achieve your highest calling, how would that impact the areas that you care most about? What kind of difference would you be able to make? 

    If your visions are based purely on some short-term desire that's disconnected from the people, things, and experiences that you care about - you will fall short. Our selfish desires change on a week-to-week basis. The vision has to be connected to something much larger than ourselves.

     

    Your Vision

    What is a goal, and what is a vision? Why do you need both?

    A goal and a vision are two different things. Imagine yourself happy and healthy with a 6-pack on the beach, enjoying life. That's a vision. Maybe not your vision... but what is your vision? Take a moment and put yourself there.

     

    Your Goals

    Now that you have a vision, what are your goals?

    A goal is not "I want a six-pack". That's a vision. A goal should be a measurable amount of work over a certain period of time that's in-line with your vision. So, good news... you want to lose weight so that you can be healthy, live a long life, and set a good example for everyone around you? Your goal should include following a diet plan and being active, daily. Here's an example:

    • I will follow the Superset city workout plan (4 week program)

    • I will drink 1 gallon of water per day (for the next 30 days)

    • I will consume 150+ grams of protein per day, and remove all processed food and sugar from my diet (for 30 days)

    Notice how each goal is an ACTION that is based on my VISION. Each day that you do the ACTION, you achieve your goal. Each day that you achieve your goal, you're closer to the vision.

    It's a huge relief when you embrace this, because it's no longer a mystery. You don't have to think about it! Determine the vision, set up the goals, and do the work. Success is just around the corner.

     

    Your Work

    Now, you're ready to do the work. The plan is in place, but NOTHING will happen if you don't commit to the work. This is where routines come into play. Figure out how to fit your goals into your day with the least amount of friction possible. This is the main reason I get up and workout first thing every morning. My family is asleep, my phone is silent, and there's no distractions. 

    With each passing day your confidence will build, and the work will become more and more enjoyable as the light of that vision becomes brighter and brighter. 

    It's time, let's get to work.

    We Survived The Storm! By CEO Todd Abrams

    While the storm damage over the last two weeks is behind us, we find ourselves blown away by the love and support from our customers and partners.

    We knew you were awesome, but WOW!

    Thank you for the graciousness that you have shown us during this unprecedented time. You offered more patience and understanding than we ever anticipated and we are so very grateful!

    Since you may not be aware, we thought sharing some of the challenges which ultimately resulted in the delay of your orders might make this whole mess easier to swallow (please pardon the pun!). Power, water, internet & cellular outages...FedEx down...ice covered roads...busted pipes...and oh so much more!

    But our team has learned a lot and will continue to grow stronger as a result.

    Sincerely,
    Todd Abrams, CEO 

    How to Beat Unfortunate Circumstances! By CEO, Todd Abrams

    How to Beat Unfortunate Circumstances! By CEO, Todd Abrams

    We all go through life and make choices. But, sometimes you're put in a situation at no consequence of your own doing, like COVID19, or the weather we're currently dealing with all across the United States, or any other unfortunate circumstance that may land in your lap...
     
    In times like these, you have to lean on your own routine.
     
    Adopt the mentality of 'what can I do to come out of this situation BETTER'. This is actually the time to begin planting more seeds in all of the areas of life that mean the most to you. For me, those areas are:
     
    • Family

    • Friendship

    • Faith

    • Finance

    • Health

    I spoke with someone over the weekend who was upset, he had bought an online course and wasn't finding the benefit. But, it had only been 3 days since he purchased the course.

    I said, "dude it doesn't all happen at once." You've got to look at it this way: How are you putting once piece in front of the other to get the results that you want? It might be 8 weeks, 12 weeks, a year from now. That's okay, you have to put the pieces in place. Keep the vision, be a leader, and guide the ship through proper action.

    Don't except excuses, get rid of the victim mindset. If you don't have the motivation yourself, find it through someone else.

    I personally have a list of 3 things that I MUST get done in my business on a daily basis to move the needle forward.

    I know that if I accomplish those 3 tasks I'm moving in the right direction. These aren't mundane "pay the bill" type of tasks, these are measurable milestones that I'm accomplishing  to ultimately fulfill a higher level target.

    1. Figure out what's important to you.
    2. Identify your targets.
    3. Do the hard stuff first, everyday.
     
    THAT'S the recipe for internal happiness and external success, regardless of the situation.
