How to be sexy

Get in shape.  It is one of the few things I can control in my life.  Am I the best looking?  No.   Am I the sexiest?  No.  Am I the wealthiest?  No.  Am I the most successful in my class?  No.  Am I where I want to be yet?  No.  But I can be fit.  Fit is sexy.  Who does not want a fit partner?  Some, but I would say the majority would love a partner that takes care of themselves.  Nothing like a hardbody.

Being fit seems to go a long way for a lot of things.  I do not even know where to start, but here is an example.  I feel better about me.  I like looking at myself in a mirror.  It seems like the oddest thing.  It seems wrong, but damn I look good.  People like to touch people who are in good shape.  I do not mind.  Well, I guess I mind a little.  It depends on the person.  I can tell you I am not embarrassed of my body.  that feels good.  I look better in clothes.  I get the question,”do you work out?”  I feel more confident.  I feel healthier.  I have more energy.  In general I enjoy my life more.  I still have other goals, but being fit makes it a ton easier.

The 3 Minute Plank Pose Challenge

I am in a situation for the next 3 months where I will not get a lot of time to work out.  So I turned to my mentor in a bit of a panic and asked him what should I do?  He asked me some questions to make sure I was not being overly dramatic, then accepted I truly may not have much time to exercise.  I was particularly concerned with my abs.  We both figured I could work in 12,000 steps of walking each day, but weights would be hard to get too.  So he threw the 3 Minute Plank Pose Challenge @me.  He said if I could maintain 3 minutes everyday, that where was no way I would lose my six-pack.  There is only one catch.  I get tired at 75 seconds, much less 180 seconds.  He told me to increase my time by 10 seconds each day until I reach 180 seconds.  Once I am there and it is fairly doable, then start mixing in some push-ups.  So I throw it at my followers, are you up to doing the 3 Minute Plank Pose Challenge with me?

Choosing a Blog Name

This is one of the funniest things I talk about with people.  How does a person choose a blog name?  I will brainstorm usually for 30 minutes with the person, then realize some of my best blogs came with the oddest names.  They were thought up quickly.  The key to a great blog is blogging daily.  If you blog everyday for 6 months about things you enjoy you will get followers.  Now if you want to make money wait for a future blog.

How did I become Wealthy?

Once you are wealthy, this will be the question everyone wants to ask you.  How did you do it?  They want to know the secret formula and recreate part of it.  How do I know?  I know because that was me.

My job is to manage and invest the money of the wealthy.  That being said I did not know how to get vast sums of wealth.  I only knew how to grow mass sums of wealthy.  so I started observing my clients, to see if I could find some clues to develop vast sums of wealth.

One of them handed me this book and said if I could not follow these basic steps I would never be wealthy.

He was so right.  It is very simple, but not easy.  Dave Ramsey Also has a podcast, if you do not want to start with the book.  If you cannot follow this, all the other posts I post around becoming a multi-millionaire will be worthless.  If you are not wealthy yet, please read or listen to this book, Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover.

This book is where my path to becoming wealthy started and it remains the foundation of my wealth.
