I’m writing to you on a humid Monday morning from the gym. I had a great weekend with my girlfriend, Rachel, and our 3 dogs (Columbus, Clementine and Jake). We enjoyed a hike up Stone Mountain and watched The CrossFit Games. If you've never watched the games you will be shocked for what the athletes can do.
The winners were the same as last year, Tia Clair Toomey and Mat Fraser. After Tia sealed her win to be crowned the Fittest Woman on Earth she was asked, “What has been your main contribution in your physical and mental strength?”
Tia replied, “Hard work and Commitment.”
Cindy - A forty pound cinder block wrapped in chains.
What Cindy represents is the adversity we all face at some point in our lives. That heavy weight that holds us down. We all carry burdens. We all have to stay strong to carry them.
But sometimes those burdens are too tough to carry by yourself.
We don’t have to deal with our problems on our own and there will always be people willing to help carry whatever is holding you down. THE GIVE TEAM has instilled this metaphor in their races. Each race Cindy starts with the team. And throughout the race each member takes turns carrying her.
If you didn't know, last week I was in Huntington Beach, California for the Warrior Wealth Business and Leadership Summit. Three days of pure fire and valuable resources.
Now you would think that since the words like WEALTH, BUSINESS and LEADERSHIP are in the title that ALL we would hear about would be greatest and latest tactics in regards to business. More stuff on marketing, sales, accounting, systems, taxes to name a few. Sure those things have a degree of importance in business BUT… we didn’t really hear or discuss those things at all.
I’ll have you consider that no area of your business works without FIRST working on yourself.
Whether you own a business or work for a business it all starts with you.
Good morning guys,
Yesterday started the 4th quarter of 2015. Businesses nationwide are preparing for the holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's.
For most of us, we are also getting ready for the holidays. Planning and preparing for parties, hanging out with family and what not.
But during this season what happens to our fitness goals? Our workout routine? Clothes start to feel a little tighter, walking up the stairs gets a little harder, carrying those groceries becomes heavier. Our goals get brushed aside and people wait till the “New Year” to get back on track.
My focus is to help individuals make lasting improvements in their lives. I am a catalyst for change.
