When You Need to Make a Change, Join the Straight Edge Society

user-pic

A WWE wrestling faction a few years ago called the Straight Edge Society would go around beating up people to convince them that they needed to live a straight life and avoid alcohol and drugs. It's leader, CM Punk, has lived this lifestyle and even though his faction is no longer together, he still lives by its principles of a no smoking, no drinking philosophy.

Sometimes, we need to give up the good to get to the great, and for me that meant giving up any alcohol as well as coffee to get more focused on my business. The hardest part for me was coffee; I wanted to strangle people for a couple days when I gave it up but I've eased off of it with green tea and an occasional iced tea.

The mental clarity that has come from being "Straight Edge" has been amazing. I've been telling my colleagues, clients and students the benefits of this and how much it has done for my business by being completely clear of "ups and downs". (My wallet is a lot fatter too).

Next time you want to make a major change in your life or business, consider joining me in the "Straight Edge Society".
