You don’t have to win you just have to keep playing

Isn’t it a bit odd that one person’s mind set is completely different than another’s. A suppose it’s not odd, I mean we’ve all come from different areas and different backgrounds; we’ve all been raised with different beliefs, even values and norms. But still the fact remains, what one person feels is impossible another will do and sometimes with ease. I set out to box jump 60 inches. Many feel this is impossible, however professional athletes do it all the time. Even on my way to 60, when I t...

Making Decisions

making decisions
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibQwQC5h5VU "I am not a product of my circumstances, I'm a product of my decisions". I love this quote. I feel like many of use the 'destiny' or 'meant to be' card, not realizing every decision we make forms our destiny. Our decisions form our future. If we made more focused and conscious decisions in life, we'd find much more success in what we're looking for. For example, we choose to set our clothes out the night before so we're ready for a workout that d...

Hitting Road Block After Road Block

Hitting road block after road seems like is something we'll all have to deal with. So picture this, you decide to go to a carnival with the kids. You and your spouse decide on a time, you let the kids know, you then decide what you'll take. Maybe snacks, hats, sunglasses, water, etc. You decide what route you're going to take or more likely put the address in your phone's gps.   Then you pack up the car, load up the kids and you're on your way!   15 minutes into your 3 ho...

4 Levels of Pain

4 levels of pain
So I think many of us could be looking for the easy way out at times, I mean it's only natural. In today's day in age most of our children will actually be conditioned to look for quick fixes which is why it's so important to teach other ways to find results. Now we've all heard, without Failure there isn't Success. Or success and failure go hand in hand (there's probably 100 different ways to say it). But I'd like to take that a step further. I don't think it's as easy as, 'BOOM' FAILURE and...

Success and Failure

So I was recently reading about successful billionaires (sounds exciting I know) but that’s part of my environment. If you read a post or two ago I talked about the importance of your environment. I like history and I like to surround myself with successful people. But more than anything I like to read about how success got to be success. Once again the Thompson family topped the charts for the wealthiest Canadian family. Now stay with me here, this isn’t about finances nor Canada. I’m not su...
