I don’t have cheat days.
The whole idea of creating a lifestyle change and then damaging it with cheat days is bizarre to me.
When it comes to health and prosperity, why cheat? The changes made are for the betterment of the self, not to deprive oneself of anything.
Cheating on new habits is cheating yourself, and nothing more.
I find an all-or-nothing approach works the best. Give it 100%.
Without a cheat day, there will be BETTER results than expected. If there is competition involved, there will be a advantage. If there is health involved, vibrancy will expand even higher. If there is exercise involved, strength will be taken even further.
Results can only be bigger. Success can only be more imminent. Strength can only be greater. Life can only be better.
Cheating is a lie to oneself. It’s saying, “You’re not good enough to stick with this completely.” It’s saying, “You don’t really want to be doing this. What you really want to be doing is that…and you’re depriving yourself of it.” Deprivation breeds rebellion, and not many people can resist that for long. It’s also a tempting, naughty reward – something to look to the future for, instead of focusing on NOW.
We’re addicts and easy-pleasure seekers – it’s ingrained in us. Our ancient brains tell us to take the easy way, the comfortable way – and with all the choices around us and all the lies we’re fed from every direction, it’s so simple to get overwhelmed and say Fuck It and go for the easy route.
Dreams are not easy. They require complete dedication, not cheating.
Obsession is a good thing when it elevates who we want to become. We can’t cheat life, and we can’t fool our bodies, or our minds – so let’s throw the cheat days in the incinerator where they belong, along with all the bullshit that keeps us from being the most galactic versions of ourselves.
We need to remove the locks from the cages that hold those versions in, and we will never get there by cheating – we need to focus on the exact methods to set ourselves free.
