Sometimes we break promises to ourselves ...
We don't get to the gym as planned
We don't clean the garage
We don’t look for a new job
I say that’s Unacceptable!
I say that something must be done!
I say, ... you must be PUNISHED!Read More
Stop being afraid to stand for something.
To stand out.
To stand as Yourself.
You can't reach for your future with one hand reaching back to your comfort zone.
Take a chance on yourself …
Burn your Boats!
The famous explorer Hernando Cortez landed on the shores of Vera Cruz, Mexico in 1519 and wanted his army to conquer the land for Spain. He faced an uphill battle: a fierce enemy, disease and scarce resources. Cortez knew his men wanted to quit and sail back to Spain. He knew that his men would not fight well with such an attitude. So he did something to properly motivate them. He wanted them to know that there was only one possible course. Success or death. As they marched inland to do battle, Cortez ordered one of his lieutenant’s back to the beach with a single instruction: "Burn our Boats."
Make a commitment you can't back out of.
Want to lose weight?
Tell all your friends what you're planning. Declare it publicly!
Want to take a dream trip in a year?
Put in your vacation request Today!
Want to learn a language?
Find a partner to learn with you and commit to seeing each other every week.
Commit to something challenging for you. Easy commitments are a good way to build momentum, but remember no one ever lived their Bucket Life by making easy commitments. That’s the opposite of Living your Bucket Life. That’s living a life of mediocrity. And on your deathbed, you'll regret every wasted day.
So commit to something great today ...
And Burn Your Boats!

The mind quits waaaaaaay before the body does.
It's designed that way.
The mind quits so the body doesn't get injured. That's the safe way to live.
But there are times in your life that you need to push past your mental breaking point.
In those cases, listen to your heart, not your head.
Tell yourself, "I may not have the strength, but I have the Heart to keep going."
While on your path to living your bucket list, things could get hard. But that’s okay. You have the Heart. Keep going. Don't give up on yourself!
Let me tell you a quick, powerful story …
The 4 Children and the 1 Rose
A wise Father wanted to teach his 4 children a lesson on grit,
on not giving up when things look bleak.
He sent them, one at a time, to visit an ancient rose bush high in the mountains.
The first came back with confusion and lack of interest. "Father, the bush is Barren and Ugly. A Twisted Twig and nothing more." "Your observation is correct, my child.”
Weeks later, the second child made the journey and reported, "The bush is Green and full of Promise." "Your observation is correct, my child.”
A month later, the third child returned. "The bush is full of Fresh Buds and beginning to smell Wonderful." "Your observation is correct, my child.”
The last child returned and reported, "Father, the bush is Gorgeous! Amazing Colors and Smells! It’s one of the most Beautiful things I've ever seen." "Your observation is correct, my child.”
He gathered his children around him. "My sons and daughters, throughout your life, you will have many great dreams, like many rose bushes. They will grow through their difficult phases. And some days they will appear worthless. Until one day, they find their beauty. Unless you give up on them. How beautiful they become, is up to you.”
Don’t give up on yourself! Keep doing the work! Work at being Happier! Work at getting Healthier!
Become the True You!
You could start blooming Any Day NOW!

Are you ready to Not Quit?! Declare it below! Now!!! You’ll have a better chance of it coming true!
Life comes at us pretty fast. So much information, coming so fast that moments and feelings are easily washed away in all the fun and craziness.
If we don’t STOP and set the moment deep in our memory, that moment could be fleeting.
Don't let awesome moments easily fade into Vague Memories!
Try this instead!
During your next incredible sporting event, your birthday party, wedding or any other amazing event, find a moment to check in with yourself. Acknowledge how you feel to yourself.
Tell yourself, "Remember This Feeling, Remember This Moment."
Next, when the event’s over, find a few moments to play back the best parts of the event in your mind. Sink the memories deeply. That way, in a few years, instead of saying “Oh yeah, I remember that party. It was pretty fun”, you can tap into the best moments and best feelings of that event.
You'll be able to truly appreciate the Best Times in your Life.
Finally, in the days that follow, find some time to relive it a few times in your mind. That should 'set' the event deeply. It’ll be ready to be accessed whenever you're in need of inspiration.
Gratitude is a crucial component of living your Bucket List. And remembering the great moments in your life will vividly inspire your gratefulness.
So at your next awesome event, find some moments to check in with yourself. Tap into the great feelings you're having ...
And SET the Moment DEEPLY!

Trust in the process.
Trust in your system.
I don’t have a diet…
I have system, a process.
I eat the same healthy way 6 days a week. Instead of struggling to find a healthy lunch everyday, cook a big soup/stew on Sundays, or grill enough meat to last the week. So when a special occasion comes up, I enjoy the celebration and eat the birthday cake, drink the beer or enjoy the PIZZA party! I can do this without guilt, because I know the next day I'm back on my system of healthy eating.
I don’t work out…
I have a system, a process.
Everyday I take some selfish time for myself. Sometimes lifting weights, sometimes yoga, sometimes running around with my kids, but I try to MOVE everyday. Some days I don't, but I don't worry about it or feel guilty. I know my system will kick back into place the next day.
And when I stumble,
when I FAIL (which I do all the time) ...
I rely on my system.
And my system says failure is not bad, NOT TRYING IS BAD. Failure is just learning and getting better.
Here are some POWERFUL thoughts from the amazing author, Tim Ferriss...
"Defining routines and systems is more effective than relying on self-discipline. I think self-discipline is overrated.
Allowing yourself the option to do what you have not decided to do is disempowering and asking for failure. I encourage people to develop routines so that their decision-making is only applied to the most creative aspects of their work, or wherever their unique talent happens to lie.
What do we see when we systematically study the great geniuses of all time? Almost all had personal routines that worked for them."
Once your systems are in place. Rely on them, Lean On Them.
Let your Systems do the heavy lifting!

Right now there’s a war going on between YOU
and your body.
You eat crap expecting your body to suffer for it and to Quite Literally carry the weight.
To fight back, your body gives out at the weirdest, most unfortunate times ...
A sneeze can knock your back out for weeks.
A slight twist from a small pebble in the road and your knee is hating you for a month.
Stretching out to grab something falling to the floor and it re-aggravates your recurring injury.
How do I know? I've been there … and it sucks.
Seek peace with your body!
You know what it wants.
It wants water.
It wants LESS chemicals.
It wants to be refreshed, not jacked up on fake energy.
By more movement and less sitting.
By more stretching and less sitting.
By more standing and less sitting.
