I watch Sportcenter in the morning.

After I get home for the A.M. workout, I watch the highlights from the night before while I get ready for work.

But while I watch highlights as a fan, the players take a different approach. They focus on GAME FILM.

After each game, play...

How did you sleep last night? 

  • Did you lay down and immediately fall asleep, or

  • Would your mind not shut off?

I used to think a lot about the incomplete items of my never ending to-do list. I would replay all the things I needed to achieve the next day in my head.

Held awa...

I don’t take advice from 10-year-olds.

When I question how to handle a situation at work, I don’t ask a 5th grader for his/her opinion.

In the past, I have set goals and told myself that:

I fell over doing box jumps.

I was at the gym, and I was jumping up onto a wall, and during my second set, BOOM... I fell over. Haha. My shin hit the side of the edge, it made a huge “thud” as I bounced off the wall, and I immediately frantically looked around.

Did any...

There is an old warrior mantra that states:

“The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle.” it has become a clique statement on meathead and crossfit t-shirts, but the mentality behind it is brilliant.

I also once heard a former Olympic athlet...

I love to beat myself up.

Okay...that’s a damn lie. I hate it. Haha. I wish I wasn’t so hard on myself, but I am. As I am sure you are on yourself. “We are our own worst critic...” blah blah blah!

But there must be some reason we do it......

It has been said that:

“The meaning of life — is to find meaning in YOUR life.”

I think that statement taps into the idea that we all have different purposes, unique visions, individual missions. All of us have a purpose, and that...

When I was a kid, I always looked up to men in the military, police officers, pro athletes, super heroes... their strength, their size, they mentality.
They seemed to be so powerful and that nothing could rattle or hurt them.

The Terminator...there is...
