Judgment free

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

  A juvenile attitude posted on my 10th wedding anniversary, "yeah ten years with the same woman??? WTF you thinking dude. keep trading up and tame a woman with a perfect body." The more you judge others, the less you'll find love. You won't domesticate someone into your own fulfillment, and you ...

Our 10th Wedding Anniversary

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

You walked by me, and I stopped breathing. Only when I caught my breath, did I realize that I was about to change everything in my life for the better, find you, and never let you go again. Now, today, on our tenth wedding anniversary, I look back on the ...

More Powerful than You Imagine

Friday, July 12th, 2013

  I was losing everything, right there in front of everyone. Televised, with bleachers full of onlookers. My reputation was being ruined, my business - destroyed, and my future - derailed. I was hopelessly lost.I had come out of the gate as I had expected and trained, flowing through my opponent ...

Your Pain Your Gift

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

  My ankle snapped in Israel with a loud, "CRACK!" The pain felt searing hot. It swelled to a blue softball within an hour. Immediately my thoughts were of the critical contract I had been fulfilling training the IDF special forces. What if I lost my contract and ruined my credibility ...

Why Be Normal?

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

The baseball bat hit my jaw in slow motion. It felt more like a flash of light than typical pain, and then blackness. Crusted blood and tears glued my lips into the dirt when I awoke. And then came the pain, like having wisdom teeth removed with a dull spoon. ...

We can recover

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

  Over a half million people read my post yesterday on overcoming violence. Almost all of the women understood immediately. Quite a large number of men did not, and believed I should have resorted to violence in my story. Many expressed their hate and contempt for my childhood abuser. Women seem to ...

Overcome the Scars of Childhood Abuse

Monday, July 8th, 2013

My mother's drunk boyfriend held me under the water. Struggling, flailing, scratching, I clawed at his forearm, but I was only 8 years old. All I could do was look up through the shimmering water at his distorted image. Finally, I gave up and just waited, unmoving, praying that drowning ...

Every Brick You Throw Lessens You.

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

  "Think your so great. Big tough fighter. Yeah I remember you curled up crying like a baby while everyone got a boot on you. I know where all you're bones are buried. Better be careful cause someones going to dig them up and show all your fans how much of ...

Sometimes, you just have to wait.

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

  As a man of action, I have preferred to "do." Waiting for others, accepting situations, patiently awaiting the proper times and effects, often felt like submission. I couldn't surrender. I had to change my circumstances, like many of you. So, I'd push, force, struggle, and rush, like we all do; resulting ...

A True Life Champion

Friday, July 5th, 2013

   This young man had severe bleeding within his vertebral cord a year ago. By good fortune the localization of the compression he had suffered "only" resulted in total paralysis from his chest down, but he survived. Two weeks ago - after he learned how Niten Magyarország had revovered from paralysis with ...
