Why Do You Shower Every Day?

Yes that's right...Why do you shower everyday?

Most people would simply say for personal hygiene...And missing showers would only make your body stink.

Similarly if you don't motivate yourself every single day your attitude will start to stink and before you know it years would have passed and you will find yourself doing the same things you did 10 years ago.

This is the major reason why we should motivate ourselves every single day...It should be a part of our daily routine and not something we do just sometimes.

    Holy moly, no wonder I stink!

    Kidding. I shower everyday simply because it FEELS good and invigorating. It doesn't matter if you're happy or sad, it STILL feels good.

    Very good analogy, Ryan. I know for a fact that this won't work with everyone. There ARE folks out there that don't shower everyday. I was in the Navy, I know! There was a guy I knew who got busted down from rank because he was so dirty. In fact, he was called "Dirty Cheek."

    Okay, I'm getting off subject here. I'll try to use that on my siblings. I've tried everything else to motivate them. Even money. Still being bums. If only they'd at least be bum-marketers. That'd be great!

    Ha, you're funny.

    Of course I shower every day. If I didn't I wouldn't stand to be close to myself. And I wear all natural deodorant so most days, I can barely last half a day without taking another shower.

    Ok, on to the real subject. Yes, I motivate myself every singe day. If I didn't, I wouldn't be able to wake up in the morning. So, every night, I write important steps to follow the next day that help me reach my top 10 goals.

    1) Wakes me up
    2) I'm married and being a stinky boy is unacceptable!

    An interesting analogy. I must say, I have fallen out of the habit of doing any sort of affirmations or real motivation/meditation.

    Perhaps just simply printing two things... a picture of lake house realty that I'd like to buy and.... my son's upcoming college tuition bill and a picture of him (okay, maybe that's 3 things to print).

    Hi Ryan,

    I was curious about the title and so this is what you mean. Good analogy.

    I roll out of bed and go straight to my running shoes, put them on, and I'm out the door before I can talk myself out of it. After 30 minutes, I have no choice but to shower...
    This thread brings to mind a line I heard, "I shower every Thursday, whether I need it or not", lol...

    Yes, I shower everyday. The only time I do not shower is if I am feeling under the weather or just want to lounge in PJs all day. Oh wait....that was yesterday.

    showering everyday is a neccesity for me, i try to shower twice a day once to wake me up in the morning and again at night to kinda cleanse away the stress of the day and give me a piece of mind which in turn allows me to sleep much more peacefully!

    It's been said you shouldn't wash your face everyday. If you wash your face everyday you are washing away the natural oils it produces that creates a barrier against the environment and keeps moisture in, resulting in dry skin and premature aging. For those that wear makeup you should wash that off everyday. If you go to bed without washing it off then you are aging your skin 7days. What about the people that work in very dirty environments? Nice moisturized young looking dirty face or dry clean old skin?

    We shower everyday to:

    1. Make ourself fresh
    2. To clean ourselves from all the dirt
    3. Habit

    Well another reason we shower and brush our teeth is because it is the bare minimum of human habit taught as a child. Also, noone likes to smell themselves in a nasty order. However, with lack of money it's easy to delude ones self, BS around, and, get sidetracked....To make money as a way of life you have to be veeery serious about achieveing something other than mediocrity.

    It is important to develop daily healthy habits: good personal hygiene, eating right and motivating oneself - a perfect combination.

    Great analogy.
    Of course I shower every day. Even twice.
    But motivationally - you're right in saying that we have to constantly motivate ourselves.

    When I just started off online, I put a sticky on my computer monitor saying "WDYDFYSTD" - that's "What Did You Do For YourSelf ToDay". Every time i looked at it, it kept me from straying into sites that wouldn't advance my business (and being online provides MANY distractions).

    I was very focused then, but when success arrived - my intensity lessened.

    Time to put that sign up again, and get new profit streams. Thanks for the kick in my butt!
