You've heard it said one way or another at least a million times. "It's not what happens to you that counts, it's how to react to it."Boring!We get it. We're not measured by our failures, but rather how we react to them. Yadda yadda yadda. I honestly didn't put quotes on the previous sentence because I think I made it up, ...

Something got you in the door. Abs, a lower cholesterol number, new confidence, or a new challenge was the spark. The reason why you came is a beautiful thing and thank goodness you had it. I'm here to challenge you, however. I worry that whatever it was that got you in the door isn't deep enough to keep you here.What we kn ...

You don't need to look far to be reminded of the resiliency of humanity. In Venice, we're in close proximity to men and women living on the street with awful nutrition at best, no nutrition at worst. Many times these individuals operate on no sleep and constant exposure to the elements. Some cases include substance abuse an ...

As the one of the most capable, resilient species on the planet, we must also be willing to admit that us humans are quite easy to trick. If our levels of participation in the lottery don’t prove this alone, we can look at our susceptibility to be distracted as further evidence of this. We are continually fooled by newnes ...

Maybe things seem mistakenly obvious to me, but I often have socially unacceptable feelings about individuals that have the tools to help themselves but still waffle. If you find yourself wondering why you don't have confidence you want or the strength you want or the body composition you want, I'd ask you a different quest ...

My favorite question for myself and others is, "What are you becoming?" It's the directionality of the question that maintains its relevance. It's inherently process oriented, which trumps any focus on results. Whether you're on life's mountain tops or in the depths of you life's struggle, the question "What are you becomi ...

You know what’s hot? “Switching it up.” You know what’s not (and never will be)? Planting a goddamn flag in the ground and saying “This is mine!”The reason we are compelled to bouncing around like non-committal beginners full of wanderlust is because it’s easier, not because it better. Commitment to starting a ...
