Keeping the Balance

Keeping the Balance

I struggle with keeping the balance. I know it’s possible because I DO create it. I know that I operate better when I’m in a place of balance but the truth is, I must work hard at it.

You see, my instinct is to work my fingers to the bone until I can’t stand any more.

That’s what I’ve always known. I come from a world of hard working, blue collar badasses who work from sun up to sun down and don’t ever complain once because they do what they gotta do.

Multiple choice

Multiple choice

“The 10 commandments aren’t multiple choice”.

I was driving down the street a couple days ago and saw that written on a sign in front of a church.

I immediately thought, “That goes the same for Core 4”.

It’s not a multiple choice question.

You don’t get to just pick one and only focus on it and think that life is going to be peachy.

You don’t get to master one and then move to the next, no longer working on the first one and think that everything is going to still flow.

That’s not how it works.

They all fit together.

They all feed off each other. Continue reading “Multiple choice”

Switching Things Up

Switching Things Up

I HAVE A TAN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2 YEARS. And it wasn’t sprayed on..

I’ve gotten more vitamin D in the past 3 weeks than I have in 2 years.

What does that matter?

Well, last summer I was rocking the total ghost pale skin tone all the way through the end of the summer. Which means that I wasn’t getting out. Like at all.

Mind Over Matter

Mind Over Matter

I never liked working out, not at all. But I still went.

I’ve been going at least 3 times every week for a year now.

Why? Because I made a commitment to myself to take better care of my body.

I made a commitment to do whatever was necessary to FEEL better.

Looking better was just an added bonus. Continue reading “Mind Over Matter”

Don’t Let Excuses Win

Don’t Let Excuses Win

8:00 on a Thursday night after the 2nd 12 work day in a row.. the LAST thing I wanted to do was lift.

I don’t normally work out at night.
My trainer was busy so I’m solo.
I am exhausted.
My back is killing me.
I didn’t get enough sleep last night.
I’m out of post work out.
It’s snowing.
My phones about to die so I can’t listen to music.
I have so much other work to do.
My dogs been alone all day.

A long line of excuses that went through my head in literally 3.2 seconds. Continue reading “Don’t Let Excuses Win”

As you head into the New Year…

As you head into the New Year…

A good coach picks you…not the other way around.

A good coach doesn’t just jump into a deal with you just because youre ready to pay them. They don’t take your money before seeing if you’re a good fit.

A good coach is picky about who they choose to work with.

Yes, you may be hiring them and you’re the one giving them your money but to a good coach, its about more than that.

It’s just as much their decision to work with you as it is yours to work with them. Continue reading “As you head into the New Year…”

Coffee Shop Hustle and Bustle

Coffee Shop Hustle and Bustle

Coffee shop hustle and bustle. I wonder if what it is about this place. Well, not this place in particular but the coffee shop atmosphere in general. No matter what town I’m in, I can walk into a coffee shop and the vibe is the same.

There’s a creative energy in the air. Continue reading “Coffee Shop Hustle and Bustle”
