What can 100 days change?

A while back I wrote a blog post sharing my journey on how I got started, and how I finally achieved my goals after years and years of trying things that lead me nowhere. I'll link to some of those posts on the bottom but this post isn't really about giving advice, as everyone is on a different journey.

I just wanted to quickly share a video I made that talks about how much can change in just 100 days. Looking back, everything I've done has been 100 day sprints. Whatever your goal is, 100 days makes a habit. Keep reading and watch the video below to find out how.

Last year my goal was to get in shape. I've been trying pretty much all of my life, but would always give up after a few weeks or a month when things got hard, I realized the plan was unsustainable, or I didn't see immediate results.  I've tried crash diets, and even starved myself for 6 days eating nothing and only drinking artificially sweetened zero calorie Sunny Delight after reading something about how people lose weight "fasting."

I wish I knew better at the time, but I was only 17.

I've done a lot of stupid, misinformed things when I was younger, but the motif of it was I was falling for things that seemed to promise easy results without doing any actual work.

Here's what can happen when you dedicate yourself to even just 100 days:

Start with Inspiration: 

Whether it's reading a book, going to a Tony Robbins seminar, playing a board game like BetterMe, or even just following my blog, first with an ironclad determination and know in your heart that as long as you follow a system that works, and you are willing to dedicate to it for even just 100 days, your life can completely change.

Write down what you want to accomplish, give yourself a timeline, and most importantly, write down what you are willing to sacrifice to achieve it.

Fitness Example: 

"By September 2nd, 2015 I will weigh less than ____lbs, I will do this by following the ________ diet exactly and working out 5 days a week.  I am willing to skip dessert, all sweets, and all alcohol until I reach this goal."

Forming a Habit:

It takes just 21 days to form a habit, but why stop there? Continue whatever you are having success with and after 100 days, your life can totally change.  

If you can lose 5 lbs in 21 days, why not continue to exercise and eat healthy for 100 days and get into the best shape of your life, build lean muscle, and make it into a lifestyle instead of just a habit.

It may only take 21 days to get into a productive habit of working earnestly instead of wasting time on social media but why not dedicate yourself to build a real business that can replace your 9-5 salary in just 100 days?  

It's almost crazy how much has changed in 100 day blocks over the past few years.  And even though I'm very comfortable and content in my income, relationship, travels and life in general, i've set myself a new goal to create my own membership based online course which will not only become a whole new stream of income for myself, but it'll also help replace the 9-5 incomes of the members that join.

What are your goals?

  1. Thanks Johnny. Great video. I needed that motivation this morning!

    Next 100 days - my store has launched (I'm close now) and has already become a leader in my niche!

    1. Hey Kevin! Glad you enjoyed the video and it got you motivated! Keep me updated with your store's progress!

  2. Hi Johnny! Great post. Here are my goals:

    Launch online store

    Post 100 artistic photos on instagram
    Start travel blog

    My starting point: June 1st, 2015.
    Goal deadline: September 8th, 2015

    1. Hey Melissa, great goals! You will achieve them 100%! Keep us updated on your progress!

  3. My goals are:
    Financial: create an online business and quit my 8-5 hellhole job

    Creative: create a successful YouTube channel and potentially have another stream income from there.

    Physical: move to Thailand, study muay Thai, live a minimalistic lifestyle and enjoy the time I have.

    How? Well. I'm not quite sure. I still have to purchase and read your book. Any other advice would be appreciated :))

    1. Hey Wunder, awesome goals! You can read Life Changes Quick on Amazon or to see how I did it as I had a lot of speed bumps along the way.

      I think the Youtube channel is a great idea for creative as it's fun but can also be a great source of income like my has accidentally become.

      For moving to Thailand and doing Muay Thai and living on the cheap, I wrote about that in great detail in my first book 12 Weeks in Thailand (

  4. Hey Johnny, great site. I like the concept of 100 day challenges. Question about it, when you're making a 100-day change, do you focus on one habit at a time? Or do you change a number of things all at once? Obviously it's easier to do the former, however one would get better results from the latter. Cheers!

    1. Hey Colin, I usually have one big goal, but as i'm doing it, I realize it often requires me to change other parts of my life to reach it.

      Example: Getting in shape would also require eating healthier, and sleeping more.

      I wrote about my journey inside Life Changes Quick which is an easy read and example if you want to check it out:
