Don’t Quit

I’m not going to lie to you – coming up with new blog posts has been very difficult at times and today is one of those times.

As part of my 400 posts in 400 days challenge I have been continuously posting new content on blog every, single, day.

Some days, like today for instance, I haven’t gotten around to posting anything till late at night. However, even on these days when I am tired, worn out from my day, and just want to relax a bit more, I’m still posting something to my blog. Continue reading

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

Kobe Bryant’s Insane Work Ethic: An Example For Athletes Everywhere

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I’ve always been fascinated to know what professional athletes do to prepare for a season.

Growing up I played basketball and football. I would constantly look up what NFL and NBA players were doing to get ready for their respective season and I’d pull some things away from there to use in my own training. Furthermore, I was always inspired by how much time they committed to getting better at their sports.

Professional athletes are the best at what they do – they are the elite. Even the bench warmers in the NBA still are extremely good basketball players (Though some people may argue with me on this point). Continue reading

Seriously, you should click on the link to check them out and if you regret it you can blame me.) and me with my career in the fitness industry.

We always talk about many different topics like how we’ll succeed in our careers, the visions we have for our lives, places we’d like to travel to, girls – you know, best friend stuff.

One common denominator this time was this: ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. Continue reading
