Aspiration versus Making Your Boundaries Non-Negotiable

anthonymanly | February 9, 2021


It’s amazing where you can take your business if you really put your mind to it.

I’m currently 14 days away from commencing Phase 2 of the 75 Hard Challenge.  You’re required to take a 30-day break between Phase 1 and Phase 2.

There are two major factors in the 75 Hard challenge that can make the difference between cruising to your goals and not.

The first is that a lot of us have aspirations about how we want to be different or better. We even set New Year’s resolutions about how we want our life to be.

If you really think about it an aspiration is like a “want-to” and it doesn’t just show up in your life. You can’t just be hoping for things to happen and your life to magically change.

You’ve got to have boundaries, which are the second factor. Your boundaries are non-negotiable.  Let me give you an example.

As you are aware I’ve been participating in the 75 Hard challenge. Eating healthy and more exercising are my aspirations.

Critically, I turned them into non-negotiable boundaries. I set a limit that I’m not going to cross.

Recently, my daughter has been learning to swim (she’s only 6 years old) and I spent the entire day, Sunday, with her at the pool and then played with her up until about 9 pm that night.

Coming down the stairs after putting her to bed, the bitch voice in my head was telling me to skip the outside workout part of the challenge.

It was now raining outside and it was too late anyway.

But I went for it and did the whole 45 minutes in the rain!


I had to as it’s gone from an inspiration to a boundary. What happens when something becomes non-negotiable?

You do everything in your power to see it through. If you cross the boundary, it’s game over. It’s tough talk time.

But if you stay committed the results are going to be amazing, both in life and in business.
