Worried your job is making you unhealthy?

It probably is

My job not only made me unhealthy

It held me back from being a top performer

So I took control and made these 3 simple changes

1. Know where I want to be

Created a goal that spoke to me in the moment

Made sure it is one that will hurt if I didn't achieve it

Mine: changing my identity from the fat guy to the ripped guy

Kept revisiting that goal to stay on target

It made daily decisions easier, like:

Sleep in or get up early?

Go for a walk or watch one more episode on Netflix

Get McDonald's or cook

2. Put myself first

Took care of the only thing in my control - myself

Didn't let outside forces stop me from getting to my goal

Investing in myself paid down debts in my life

Building up healthy habits:

Made my job more enjoyable

Gave me clarity

Advanced my career

3. Dug down even deeper

Most people stop when it gets hard

Got to the value, deeper

When I hit the bottom, the hardest part

PUSHED a little more

Growth brought me unique knowledge

And valuable experience

That's how I became Dev Ripped

Confidence in my job, life, and health

Certain I can solve any problem thrown at me

Achieve what I choose to
