Another Failure

I know that's a heck of a title. I'm a big believer in the saying by Norman Vincent Peale — 'Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.' I have a reputation for setting some very high goals. Usually personal goals so if I fail they don't hurt anyone else.... Continue Reading →

How do I get motivated?

Most of the nuggets of wisdom that I come in contact with are usually from self talk. After a busy days worth of work and frustrations I asked myself the question, How do I get myself motivated? Then I realize that I'm asking the wrong question. The right question is, how do I build the... Continue Reading →

Practice is Perfect

Too many of us expect to tweak our normal routine and immediately see results. The truth is that most of the time we won't see results for quite a while. All my life I've heard, practice makes perfect. Yet again this is one of those erroneous beliefs we must unlearn. Many years ago I identified... Continue Reading →

To Fear or not to Fear

I've read and heard this quote a million times and yet, I just don't agree with it. I fear failure, maybe because I'm still in the game of life and not just talking about the past. I say, be fearful, be scared shitless of failing. It keeps you on your feet. Keeps your heart pumping.... Continue Reading →

I Raised My Standards

Ones upon a time I had a huge void within. This void attracted anything and everything without judgement, without prescreening, and without any requirements. I wholeheartedly believe that many people have had this exact feeling at some point or another and quite possibly still feeling it. Through this time in my life I needed "friends"...

Physical, mental and emotional pain

We often run away from anything painful. We usually avoid emotional, physical and mental pain. We seek out comfort. Although for safety reasons that all makes sense, when we study the great folks who have achieved great success and wisdom they usually have something in common. They went through a great deal of emotional, mental... Continue Reading →

Patience or effort?

Nobody wants to live with regrets. However we often refrain from taking chances that could lead us to a brighter tomorrow. We too often make excuses for ourselves with, "well I might have not met such and such or had my kids, etc." What if the truth is that you could've optimized your life and... Continue Reading →

Mondays vs Fridays

Why are we always looking forward to the weekend? Why do we embrace the day of rest with no plans in place? Why don't we enjoy Mondays? Why are we reving up for Friday on hump day (Wednesday)? I think we really need to reflect on those questions. Unless you're planning on going on a... Continue Reading →

Jump

I know of no one like me. I don't know anyone with an optimistic attitude like mine. I don't know anyone with a drive like mine. I don't know anyone with my commitment. I don't know anyone who holds themselves accountable like I do. I don't know anyone whose trained their self talk like I... Continue Reading →

My little place for Self Talk

Been working on me for a very long time. Attempting to become the best version of myself. Currently at a solid 2.5 out of 10 in arriving at my best version. Definitely an amateur, a student, a white belt. Nevertheless, eagerly and actively learning and absorbing everything I can that helps me in the journey... Continue Reading →

Examining My Own Actions

I struggle with not sharing my journey at times. Sometimes I feel that I'm inspiring by sharing my journey. Then at times I think I bother some folks by making them feel like I'm judging them that they're not doing enough. Some may feel that I am sharing something negative, that what I do is... Continue Reading →

Change your life

What if I told you the formula for changing your life was simple and easy? What if I told you that you can begin changing your life within minutes? What if I told you that you can begin pealing back the layers of negativity and lies away immediately? All of the above is true. What... Continue Reading →

My Values

Work on me If I don't work on me I'm not going to be good enough for my children, wife, family or team. Be better than you was yesterday. All in Mentality Don't do anything half ass, not even three quarters in. All in or nothing. Do it to a fault. Self Talk The relationship... Continue Reading →

Pick and choose your battles

One day I realized that I was using that statement to create excuses. They're ALL my battles! Prioritize your battles. Organize them in such a way that by fighting certain battles first, you'll eliminate other battles. When we hear "pick and choose your battles!", Something rings true. Nevertheless, it is usually used to cop out... Continue Reading →

Empower

Throughout the years I've realized that to empower others is extremely important. Definitely a lesson I learned well into my leadership career. One thing I learned a long time ago probably by way of examples was to take full on control of a situation, own it, make it your own, begin to build it and... Continue Reading →

The Heart’s Alternator

Growing up in this world isn't exactly easy. However, our mind is so great that we adapted to our environment in order to survive. This process is done mostly without our assistance, like an auto pilot. So we can assume that for the better part of 25 years many if not most of us operate... Continue Reading →

Motivation

Motivation is nothing more than a little boost in a long race. What's better than motivation is discipline and consistency. Be determined to work hard every day without fail. I promise you, you will not always be motivated. But you can make sure to be action based and all about executing. Plans, talks and day... Continue Reading →

Standards, Discipline, and Accountability

Always have high standards for yourself, those you call your close friends, your business, and life in general. Have the discipline to uphold those standards. Most importantly, hold yourself Painfully Accountable for your actions and inactions. Example: I am in my 28th day of running an average of 4 miles a day, Everyday as punishment... Continue Reading →

Hardwork

Hard work wins it all The miles on the watch are great so I can beat my best every day, every week, every month and every year.It keeps me in the fight or race of me against me. However, the miles that matter  the most are the ones I'm putting on my mind. Hardwork relates... Continue Reading →

Self Mastery

DedicationDeterminationCommitment A great place to get this kind of experience is running. Running SUCKS! We must suffer in order to grow. We tell the mind who's boss here. The mind wants to quit, give up, go take a nap. But we tell the body "Not today!" In running we really get to see how much... Continue Reading →

Excuses

5/18 For the year of the Vision, this has been extremely interesting and we're not even half the year in. Many folks got a much needed break from the hustle and bustle. I don't think most asked for this break but I don't hear many complaints about not working. Like many folks out there I... Continue Reading →

2020 The Vision

It's that time a year again when I reflect upon my traditional 60 day reboot. The mantra this year is "This is my healthiest year yet". I've logged just about every stat I could these past 60 days. I've ate very clean with none to little bad fats, sugar and gluten and very few processed... Continue Reading →

My Why

Throughout life I've read and heard in many places the question of what is your why. I've always figured I knew it. Nonetheless, I figured it may be a good practice to go ahead and put some down on paper, so here I go. Why do I do what I do in a daily basis?... Continue Reading →
