Spartan isn’t just a race. It’s a mindset and a lifestyle. Here are 9 ways you can start living like a Spartan soldier and begin reaping the physical and mental rewards.
Spartan Soldier Basics
1. Do hard things
You won’t remember the easy times. Tough times define you and create your story. And the more difficult your challenges, the more interesting your story.
2. Life is a class—don’t skip
Your attitude, not your aptitude, decides your altitude.
3. Decide who you want to be
That’s right—you get to decide! But change is hard. You have to put in the work.
4. Embrace discomfort
If you’re not tired, you’re sleeping too much. If you’re not cold, you’re wearing too much. If you’re not hungry, you’re eating too much.
5. Don’t delude yourself
Success doesn’t come naturally. If something is easy, you’re not as good at it as you think. Two things separate average and extraordinary people: sweat and tears.
6. Wake up early
It’s so simple, and it gives you a daily edge over 99.9 percent of your competitors. Start your day fast and don’t look back.
7. Eat healthy
Your body is a garbage in, garbage out machine. If you eat junk, you can’t be healthy. Full stop.
8. Train daily
This is nonnegotiable. It’s not what you do; it’s who you are.
9. Become harder to kill
That’s the result of doing all of the above and becoming a modern Spartan soldier.
