DD Fitness: How Lent can help you achieve your goals?

By on December 21, 2019

first_imgThis week Donegal Daily’s fitness guru Emmet Rushe explains how you can achieve your goals this Lent. We have entered the season of Lent.Over the next 6 weeks’ millions of Christians will commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries a form of penance. Lent is traditionally described as fasting for 40 days in commemoration of the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting in the desert.This is something that most people who set out on can complete.Their faith is the driving force behind their goals and this faith is what keeps them on track when things get inevitably difficult during the 6 weeks of abstinence.In a normal situation, when someone sets out on a goal, quite often the goal is never reached. The difficulties that arise can be their downfall and lead them off course and eventually into giving up.Why is it then that when it comes to Lent, people seem to have more will power?It is because of their faith.With this, they have something that is greater than their wants and needs.When you abstain from something to achieve a goal, the goal must be greater than the pull of what you are abstaining from. If it isn’t, you will inevitably fail.During lent, the goal is to follow what Jesus did, and to abstain for the 6-week period.The thought of straying from this, the guilt of failing during this time and the sense of achievement that they have carried out something for their faith and for God is enough to keep most on track.This can be used to your advantage during this time. If you normally struggle with goals, Lent could be what helps you to succeed this time.You will have a reason greater than what you are abstaining fromYou will have likeminded people who are starting similar journeys. You have a reason that people WILL NOT question. Once you say why you are abstaining, there are no questions asked. All 3 of these combined, will increase your chances of success tenfold.So, get started, find support and use these next 6 weeks to break habits, achieve goals and finally find success.#leanin2019We are always welcoming new members into our Lean in 2019 program.Our course starts on April 1stIf you would like to pre-book your place you can contact me though the link below * Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Fitness LTDDD Fitness: How Lent can help you achieve your goals? was last modified: March 2nd, 2019 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:dd fitnessemmet rushelast_img read more

Refusing ride to cost cab drivers ₹1,000 in M.P.

By on December 1, 2019

first_imgThe Madhya Pradesh government has framed rules to impose a fine of ₹1,000 on drivers of cabs, including mobile app-based services, in case they cancel a ride request after accepting it.“Once the rules come into effect, cab drivers will have to take a licence from the government after paying a certain amount as fee and fulfil some obligations,” said State Transport Department Deputy Secretary Niyaz Ahmed Khan.‘No exploitation’Stating that the rules had been sent to the Law Department and were expected to be notified this month, he added, “The government will have control over drivers so that passengers are not exploited and are given proper services.”Mr. Khan explained that the government would have access to the digital records of a cab service, and impose a fine on drivers or seize their licences in case they cancel a ride or break rules. Even, travel fares will be regulated by the government so that the passengers are not fleeced. GPS-enabled And in case a GPS-enabled cab stops midway a ride or travels in a different direction, the police will get an alert. Hailing the framing of rules, Bhopal Travels Association secretary Rajkumar Kanojia, representing regular cab services, said, “Although travel operators and not drivers cancel rides in our case, it’s a positive decision. If a booking has been made and the operator cancels the ride at the last minute, they should be held accountable.”Other reasonsBut, Rajesh Ginnare, a driver with an app-based service in Bhopal, felt drivers cancel rides only for some pressing reasons. “If the pick-up location is far away, we have to cancel a ride. It happens several times that a rider awaits the cab at a location different from the one entered in the application, so we have to cancel the ride. We also have to cancel a ride if the road leading to a pick-up location is too narrow or congested,” he said.“We get a cancellation fee only if the rider doesn’t turn up at the pick-up location even after five minutes. Sometimes, we don’t even get that,” he added. The application lowers his rating if he cancels a ride request within a 4 km radius.last_img read more
