If you want your grass to be green, all you have to do is water it. It really is that easy.
In today’s society, it seems like this “the grass is greener” mentality is very prevalent. We’ve all heard that saying, right? “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” Oftentimes, we see people do this with their relationships. They get tired. It gets to a point where it’s not fun anymore. It’s not the fairy tale relationship they had when they first started dating or that they enjoyed early in their marriage. Today more than ever, people seem to want to just trade it in for a new one. Get rid of the old car for that new car.
But guess what happens with that new car smell? It always goes away. No matter what you do. So, you need to continue to put work into your relationship, or your business, or whatever it is that’s feeling old and stale in your life. Put time into it; put energy into it; put focus into it to keep that fresh smell.
It’s the same in every area of the Big 4. If you aren’t taking daily action in every area, swinging singles every day, your grass is going to dry up. If you leave it unwatered long enough, it’s going to turn brown and brittle. It’s easy to look at someone else’s life and think that they have it so easy and wish that you could have what they do. But what you don’t see is that person, your “neighbor” out watering their grass every day. Spending time with their partner and family, showing up in their business every day, doing the work around their fitness and nutrition to have those amazing six-pack abs.
Basically, you need to water the grass in your own yard, instead of wishing your grass was as green as your neighbors. You have no idea what it takes for the people you’re looking at to keep that grass green, and I promise if you do the work. If you make the commitment and refuse to quit, pretty soon your grass will be greener than you could ever imagine.
