Don’t Accept the Unacceptable

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Acceptance has become the new fascism of mediocrity. Pop culture attacks you for wanting to change. They believe that if you are striving for betterment, you must not be accepting who you are. And that's "bad." Don't be pressured by language to "love yourself" enough to not change ...

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

You've Got What It Takes But It'll Take Everything You've Got. Confidence will come and go, and it usually only comes after the time that you need it, so don't wait for the time that you feel confident. Skill is temporary, for by the time you finish, you will be able to ...

Social media over shares over sensitive sentiments, when we actually need to grow stiff upper lips, greater Calvinistic work ethic and higher moral drive.

Strong Enough to Progress - Wise Enough to Recover

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

Many think they're training like an "elite" athlete, but it requires 8-13 years to build an Olympian or world champion (the real elites). People attempt to train like the elites do at the end product of their time investment to become elite, rather than the long, ...

You Don’t Grow If You Don’t Rest

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

The first step in getting fit requires you to realize that you don't grow if you don't rest. The benefits of exercise don't come while it happens; only after it's over and you're recovering. Be as, if not more, strategic about your recovery as you are ...
