When you were born, you were broken away from the source. You can call it GOD, God, source, Great Spirit, enlightenment, universe, energy, and many, many other names. It doesn’t matter. This isn’t about religion, so, replace the concept with any that fits your beliefs. Your life emanated from something. That’s why humans struggle soContinue reading “Perfectly Broken”

I thought we could have fun with this personal example today. I have a hunch that a few of youContinue reading “Where Do Cravings Come From?”
Should I Blog Every Day?
Some people don’t think that I should write this blog. They say that I shouldn’t give away all of this advice for free. That couldn’t be further from the truth. First of all, if someone wanted to somehow package and monetize the content from all of the posts, then, good luck to them. Aside fromContinue reading “Should I Blog Every Day?”
Hard Work Is The Gift
I like to reward myself with workouts. Yes, it’s true that training sessions are a regular part of my week, three times per week at minimum, whether or not I have something to celebrate. But I don’t look at them as a chore. I really look forward to them. If I can work my scheduleContinue reading “Hard Work Is The Gift”

You Are Worth It.
One of the great things about individuality, which I touched on yesterday, and in many other posts, is you. On one hand we are all similar. In fact, we’re much more than similar; over 99% of all humans’ DNA is identical. But on the other hand, you couldn’t be more different from the person sittingContinue reading “You Are Worth It.”
Individuals Behave …
… like individuals. While it’s true that there are basic principles that work well across the board, when it comes down to specific habits, what works for me may not for you at all.

Yesterday I hit a PR on my fourth set out of five. (‘PR’ means ‘personal record’, which means aContinue reading “No Doubt.”

On Facing Yourself
You know what it is that’s holding you back. It might not be at the forefront of your mind. But it never goes away. It lurks there, and it always appears, over and over again. Eventually you’re either going to have to walk straight towards it, or be confronted with it when you really don’tContinue reading “On Facing Yourself”
