Becoming The Best Possible Version Of Myself
The Mother Of All Challenges 🙂
The challenge that I'm doing now can be called the mother of all challenges because it has been divided into multiple phases and it should have the biggest impact on my wellbeing and life in general.
Watch the overview of the challenge
Phase 0. "Breaking Down The Old Self"
Watch how I got rid of my limiting subconscious beliefs once and for all. Now I can start building the best version of myself from the clean sheet.
Phase 1 - "It's Not About What, It's All About How"
Your muscles cannot make a difference are you exercising in your head or are you actually working out, you will gain strength both ways.
So, it's not about what to do, it's all about how to do it. Your mind and your body have to work together for the same goal to get the best result from everything.
The first week with the Phase "It's Not About What, It's All About How" is done.
Here is the overview of the first week.
Let's kickstart the challenge 🙂
I have changed the look of my sheet a little and added a new thing to make it more fun and playful - Streaks!
This gives me a good overview of how I'm doing with specific tasks.
Day 2 and another perfect score. Wasn't as smooth as the first day though. I left the reading to late evening and without the challenge, I wouldn't have read 40 pages. So the challenge is really helping 😊 I was actually able to finish another book with that.
I was so close to missing one thing entirely. I was already getting ready to do the last thing before bed which is the evening meditation and I decided to check my challenge schedule. I was missing the "Writing To Diary - Good, Bad & Gratitude" part. Took my diary and wrote everything down. Result - PERFECT SCORE again 😎
Oh NOOO! I broke the streak. It wasn't my plan 😀
I'm marking the tasks for the early morning after I have done everything and open my PC. After yoga I thought, ok now everything is done and just marked all the tasks. In the evening when I started to write to my diary I saw that I haven't written morning things in a diary. "Oh no, I broke my streak!", was my immediate reaction. "How could I miss that simple thing? Now we need to start building the streak again."
This was supposed to be the easiest boxes (early morning) to build the streak. Well, it didn't go that way 😉
But this is what can happen, failures are part of life. Learn the lesson and move on 😀 The positive side is that it was just in the beginning when the streak was still really small.
Buiaka! Back on track 😊
I was so close to failing the perfect streak again.
First, I forgot to write to my green diary before most of the tasks (writing how I would like to behave and feel and the outcome of the task). So I got exactly 6 things with the last task (going to bed and writing how the night will unfold and how I feel in the morning).
Second I was already in bed and waiting to fall asleep when I realized my evening meditation hasn't been done yet. Blanket flew off and ... 😀
DAY 6 & 7
The weekend has always been my nemesis and I have struggled with it a lot in the past. I really pushed myself to be on track this time and the result is the perfect score on Saturday 😀 I believe it is the first time ever with a similar challenge so it is an achievement on its own 😊
But on Sunday, I still failed off although only with one task. We were watching a TV show in the evening and we had so delicious snacks which we cooked ourselves and I just couldn't resist them 😉
So the perfect streak was again broken.
Bringing streaks to my challenge is a complete game-changer. Getting 3 perfect days in a row is by far the best result I have ever got with such a challenge.
With previous similar challenges, the result has been usually between 75%...90% of all the tasks. And if I remember correctly only once I have got 2 perfect days in a row. With this challenge, I have managed to get 8 perfect days from a total of 10 😎
Let's continue building those streaks 😊
Another perfect day. The hardest yesterday/today is 24 fasting. Usually, I don't feel it much but this time I feel weakness in my body in the morning. Yesterday was a pretty hard day too: pretty heavy workout and over 1 hour of sparring. But what's most important is I have got another perfect day 😎
Another perfect day although I was so close to breaking the streak. I forgot to drink enough during the day and I had to drink 0.5l before going to bed 😀. Plus I almost forgot to write to the diary. Luckily I checked the challenge sheet before going to bed 😉
Day 13 & 14!
The weekend has always been my nemesis with this challenge and the last weekend wasn't an exception. I failed with many things over the weekend.
But to look at the positive side, the biggest failure in the past over the weekends has been eating late at night. This time I could hold myself back 😉
Plus the morning is still perfect which is another improvement compared to previous challenges. 😎
