There's Always Shit and Challenges That Stand in Your Way. 

MY WHOLE LIFE has been about adapting, changing and facing challenges. Often, the process is daunting, but it opens new opportunities and experiences. I am resilient, and these challenges serve to drive and inspire me to overcome any shit that comes my way. I would have preferred a smoother ride through life, but it was not meant to be. The challenges have given me personal growth and empowered me to be myself.

The Power of Intrinsic Motivation

Challenges drive my intrinsic motivation because I enjoy the thrill of learning, growing, and overcoming obstacles. I feel fulfilled and satisfied in pushing my limits and achieving new heights. This internal drive to succeed and improve myself is a powerful force that has led to remarkable achievements and personal development.

Mind and Body Goals for a Fulfilling Life

As I enter the next chapter of my life, I have set clear, balanced goals for my mind and body. These goals are categorised into three main areas for each, providing a well-rounded approach to personal development.

My Physical Life Goals

1. Fitness

Fitness is the cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle. Regular physical activity not only improves physical health but also boosts mental well-being. My goal is to maintain a consistent exercise routine that includes a mix of cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility training. Doing so aims to improve my fitness, increase my energy, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

2. Lean Body

Another critical goal is achieving and maintaining a lean body, which refers to a healthy body composition with a low percentage of body fat and a high rate of lean muscle mass. It involves not just exercise but also proper nutrition. I plan to adopt a balanced diet rich in whole foods, lean proteins, healthy fats, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Monitoring my caloric intake and ensuring I get the necessary nutrients will be crucial. A lean body looks good and functions optimally, supporting overall health and well-being.

3. Mobility

Mobility is often overlooked but is essential for a long, active life. Maintaining flexibility and joint health can prevent injuries and improve the quality of life. I incorporate activities that enhance mobility, such as Kun-Aqua and yoga. These practices keep my body agile and capable of performing everyday tasks with ease.

My Mind Goals

1. Purpose

Having a sense of purpose is vital for mental well-being. It gives my life direction and meaning. I pursue activities and causes that I am passionate about. My platform, Meta-Age, advocates for a more fulfilling and meaningful life in the later years and is about dedicating time to a movement that resonates with my values. I desire to lead a more fulfilling and meaningful life by aligning my actions with my purpose.

2. Discipline

Discipline is the foundation of achieving any goal. It involves staying focused, managing time effectively, and showing resilience in the face of setbacks. I have cultivated discipline all my life, whether sticking to a workout regimen, adhering to a healthy diet, or consistently working towards my personal and professional goals. Strong self-discipline has enabled me to overcome obstacles and focus on long-term success.

3. Significance

Feeling significant and positively impacting the world is a fundamental human need. My goal is to see Meta-Age as a platform that contributes meaningfully to my community and the lives of others. Through coaching, I share knowledge and participate in community initiatives such as Meta-Age Challenges. Striving for significance is to leave a lasting, positive legacy.

In conclusion, embracing challenges and setting clear goals for both mind and body are essential steps towards a fulfilling life. I have enhanced my physical health by focusing on fitness, achieving a lean body, and maintaining mobility. Meanwhile, I am cultivating a sense of purpose, discipline, and significance to enrich my mental and emotional well-being. These goals have guided me to navigate the next chapter of my life, helping me to grow, achieve, and find fulfilment.
