S3E44: Dr. Rob Bell, Forging Mental Toughness

July 17, 2019 No Comments

Your life can change in an instant. It’s what sports psychologist Dr. Rob Bell calls a hinge moment. Hinge moments often come when you’re not expecting them, which is why it’s important to treat every day, every interaction, every conversation, and every person as though they could be that life-changing moment.

S3E40: Failures. Setbacks. And What Actually Matters Most.

June 19, 2019 No Comments

It’s easy to get caught up in the failure. We tend to distract ourselves from what’s more important by replaying what happened then. Everyone experiences setbacks – but the mistake 99% of the people you know make is that they get stuck playing the “what if” game with their setback and carrying around the emotional baggage like it’s travel luggage.

What’s your Why? Identify the bigger reason behind being healthy (is it for family, specific things you want to achieve, etc) – spend some time being honest with yourself and find that…

A Competitor Embraces Personal Responsibility

June 6, 2019 No Comments

“It’s not my job, let someone else do it.” Nothing irritates me more than seeing abandoned shopping carts littered across a parking lot. I counted ten total between my two stops in a retail center today. The sign of carts left scattered in the wild screams “ENTITLEMENT.” More than anything it shows a lack of personal responsibility by immature adults.
