What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

One of the biggest hurdles for anyone to accomplish their goal is to take the necessary steps to get started.

Often times we feel like the things we really, truly want in life are unattainable and with this thinking we end up never even trying to go after them – this is a shame.

Is life filled with failure? Of course it is, but who cares? Why should one failure stop you from trying another time? Continue reading

It has always been told as this underdog tale of how this shepherd boy, David, defeats this insanely large warrior, Goliath.

Malcolm Gladwell, a best-selling author (his book, Outliers: The Story of Success, was fantastic) re-evaluates this entire story and offers a new perspective. Continue reading

This past summer when I first tried out this whole blogging thing the audience I had in mind was really just my friends and family.

During the summer I was an intern at Fitness Quest 10 in San Diego, California and I wanted to share my experience with them.

Blogging was an easy way to keep my family and friends up to date with things I was doing; things like catching passes from Saints Quarterback Drew Brees, helping run various kids camps, taking in knowledge bombs from other trainers, attending national fitness conferences like IDEA and Perform Better, taking adventures to places like Laguna Beach, enjoying that SoCal sunshine – you know, fun stuff like that.

This gallery contains 1 photo.

On Tuesday, I posted a video of Elon Musk on my Facebook page. If you haven’t seen it yet you view it on the bottom of this post.

I’ll let you know a couple of things in this post starting out with who Elon Musk is and then telling you some interesting takeaways from the video. Continue reading
