Hey guys it’s Jessica and today I want to talk about how I can get better results in my business and in my workouts, but I actually don’t, because I’m choosing not to. So some of you are like “What??” like, “If you can get better results, why wouldn’t you choose to succeed more?”

Well here’s the thing…
For example, my business.
There are certain things that I could implement right now that would make my business grow faster, but it would involve compromise on my part and kind of doing some things that maybe aren’t 100% aligned with who I want to be and kind of what I want to portray. So, guess what? I’m gonna sacrifice that success to stay true to who I am.

So the same is gonna be true in my health and fitness plan. I know good and well how to succeed in getting super-ripped abs, super easily… or not maybe easily, but by following strict nutritional guidelines…

Be okay with you!to succeed

And to be totally honest…
I’ve been there,
I’ve done that,
And it’s just not an area of my life that I really enjoy.

So, for example, if I have bread then I’m gonna bloat up a little bit… but I like bread.

Bread makes me happy sometimes…

not all the time…
but every now and then I’m gonna have bread,
and it’s just worth it to me to have the bread and
to have the happiness and enjoyment that I get out of the bread,
than to have the crazy ripped abs and be in a horrible mood.
I like a little bit of spray butter every now and then too! So, guess what? I realized when I took spray butter out of my life, I was not super awesome. So, I’m going to be okay with maybe not having the most chiseled abs you’ve ever seen, but guess what??

I’m a nicer person.
It’s the way I choose to live and want to live,
and I’m okay with that.

So you have to pre-determine who you want to be, and what lengths you’re willing to go to get there to succeed. So I just want to encourage you to not compromise living the life, or designing the life that you want to live.  For example, I don’t like showing a lot of skin. I’m a more modest person. It is who I am, and it is what it is! I know that if I showed more revealing photos of me flexing, more people will be lining up, or liking my stuff, or following me, but that’s not who I am and that’s not really what I want to attract, so I’m okay with that!

Never compromise in order to succeed

So like I said…
To succeed, find out first…
Aka Pre-determine who you are
Where you want to go
What you want to represent
Then determine the areas that you’re unwilling to compromise,
NO matter what is waiting for you on the other side.
Because all success is not necessarily worth it. I find being true to yourself, determining your personal goals and just standing on those things is going to be the true, ultimate success in your life!

So hopefully that helped you guys.
