Define “Success”

Define “Success”

Before you even start, you must define what success is to you. Success is different for everyone. For some, making the Olympic team is the success, and that’s amazing. For others, it is making the final. Still others, anything short of winning is the failure. As you can see, success is in the eye of the beholder. It is no…

Can’t Handle the truth!

Can’t Handle the truth!

There is no better industry than mine to show how most people are just plain in denial! Most people are so influenced by the media, social media and other external factors that they believe that they are entitled to the things that they want in their lives. They look around them and believe that they should be able to have…

Going against the grain!

Going against the grain!

The herd doesn’t win! There are 2 types of people in this world. There are the Sheppard (the few) and there are the sheep (the many). The majority of people are followers. Afraid to take a stance. Afraid to take a chance. Afraid to be alienated for their beliefs. Afraid, afraid, afraid. What will people say? How will people react?…

Winning Isn’t Normal!

Winning Isn’t Normal!

Have you ever wondered why some people win and others don’t? Have you ever asked yourself why you seem to struggle to achieve your goals? Those questions can easily be answered if you were to take an honest look. An honest look at “yourself”. Take an honest look at yourself in the mirror. If you take a real honest look…

Whatever it takes!

Whatever it takes!

I’ve learned in life that there are people who have dreams, people who have passion, people who set goals and people who go beyond. Don’t mix these up. They are not the same. Dreams you have at night when you sleep. Too many people talk about dreams, passions, and goals. The problem with dreams are, at some point, you have to…

Take Responsibility!

Take Responsibility!

After all these years of searching for reasons that I was able to achieve what 99.99% of athletes couldn’t. As in most things in life, it all came down to the most basic principle that I learned (as I’m sure most people do and take for granted, as I did) from my parents. My mother always used to say to…

Stop Whining!

Stop Whining!

The #1 reason that most people are stuck in the 95%. You don’t get to whine and succeed. Just ain’t happenin’. Stop complaining. Stop whining. Just stop it. Nobody cares. Really, nobody gives a crap. O.K. maybe your momma, but that’s about it. Everyone wants to be richer, fitter, happier, healthier, freer, but they just aren’t willing to do what…

It’s That Simple

It’s That Simple

I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I have heard clients tell me what they think they should be doing, parents telling me how their future NHL star should be training, or even trainers fresh out of a weekend fitness course and full of enthusiasm correcting my techniques and methods. “We have been doing this for 3 weeks…

Plan B

Plan B

And yes…you’d better have a “Plan B”. and a “PLAN C”, and “D” and probably all the way to “Z” and that might still not be enough. The big difference between the 5% and the 95% is, failure is always an option but giving up isn’t! Statistics show that the 3rd part of the “WORK/TIME” equation is…” FAILURE”. Get used…
