Keep it moving!

Sometimes you’ll be intimited. Sometimes you’ll be afraid. Sometimes it will feel like it’s not worth it. Don’t allow that to stop you.

Remember why you are doing what you are doing. I am currently reading a leadership book by Jim Sullivan in which he says ‘the only thing stronger than fear is purpose’. Remember why you are doing it and keep pushing forward. The rest will take care of itself.

Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂

Happy Fathers Day!

Like pimpin’, fatherhood ain’t easy. It takes a real man to raise thier child. In many cases it is with the help of the mother and in others it’s not. Unlike having the child, choosing to stay around and be there for the child is never an accident.

I’d be remiss to not acknowledge the stepfathers and adoptive fathers. You make sacrifices to make an impact in a child’s life. You deserve equal credit for all that you do.

Happy Fathers Day to all the great dad’s out there!!

Be grateful for all that you have, but don’t stop working!

I know first hand just how dark things can seem sometimes. During the hard times, you study hard and workout hard in hopes to become better and stronger so I am in position to escape that apparent hell. Then ultimately, I find myself with the good job or partner I’ve been searching for. Life is good, right?

Well then I would become complaisant. I would stop studying so hard. And I’d stop working as hard. And before you know it, I am out of shape both physically and mentally.

Life is about balance. It’s about being happy and grateful for what we have but still working hard to maintain what we have and achieve more. I’ll admit that it’s easier said than done, but very important nonetheless.

Don’t be so hard on yourself!

I’ve found that I am usually much harder on myself when things go wrong. I would beat myself up and say the worst things to myself in my head. I would feel worthless and walk around upset and overwhelmed. That’s how I lived for the majority of my life.

But in time, I’ve learned that shit happens! Sometimes you screw up, and you just need to own it and move on. There is no need to beat yourself up and add meaning that isn’t necessary. Just laugh it off and fix it.

Days 2 and 3- Keep Pushing Forward!

From my experience, days 2 and 3 are the hardest days for making a change. Using weight loss as an example, it’s easy to have a good Day 1. You are motivated to make the change and have planned your day meticulously.

The next two days is where the rubber meets the road. It is where you’ve lost the excitement and you start to question if it is worth it. Don’t give in! Once you get over this hurdle, you have the momentum to keep going and achieve you goals. Stay strong and focused on why it’s important!

Everyday has it’s ‘Crisis du jour’

Shane, A good friend of mine, taught me this lesson early my career. Everyday has it’s crisis du jour(crisis of the day). Sometimes it is a level 10 crisis and other times it is a minor crisis maybe a level 3. But you can always count on some form of crisis du jour.

So what’s my point? Remember that you have experienced many a crisis before and always found a way to overcome it. Don’t be foolish enough to think that you will go through life without the trials and tribulations we all face. You need to be ready to face your challenge. Ultimately today’s challenge will be long gone and you will have a new crisis du jour tomorrow. You’ve for this.
