It’s probably not the case that you or I are reading too much, even though I just told you that I’m an avid reader. However, one thing that many people fail to do is execute on the knowledge they have gained from reading. (And learning, taking courses, etc.) As I look around my library, IContinue reading “Reading & Doing”

What Does Your Soul Need Most Right Now?
I read a lot. I’ve got a library full of books, many of which I re-read, more than once. I’ve got a list of books that I will read. I’ve got an electronic file full of book notes & quotes from my favorites. Sometimes, when I’m not 100% sure which book I will read next,Continue reading “What Does Your Soul Need Most Right Now?”
Fear is probably the only thing standing in your way. Fear of it not working; fear of what other people will think, particularly fear of what people close to you will think; fear of losing all of your possessions and status; fear of actually having to get out of the comfortable spot you’re in rightContinue reading “Within Reach”
Which Skills Matter?
We used to have to learn how to read maps; now, navigation does it for us. We used to have to develop the skill of taking notes; now, we can just screenshot that. This is not a rant against technology, but rather, some questions to consider. If those and other similar skills are no longerContinue reading “Which Skills Matter?”
The Best Job I Never Did
One of the best coaching jobs I ever did was one I never did. The client wanted to do a nutrition program, but after their intake, I knew they weren’t ready. There was simply just way too much going on. But rather than trying to convince them that they should not start, I guided themContinue reading “The Best Job I Never Did”
No Program Is Perfect
No program is perfect. All programs are flawed. (As Coach Zach points out.) What does he mean? Well, when it comes to exercise, strength, & conditioning: even the best, most proven, tried & tested programs need to be tweaked for the individual athlete’s particular situation at some point. You can have an awesome program plannedContinue reading “No Program Is Perfect”
Your Path To Health
The one – and only – Path To Health is the one that you take. It is yours, and yours alone. No one – not me, nor anyone else – can unequivocally tell you what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ for you. This is because YOU have to WALK YOUR PATH in order to discover it.Continue reading “Your Path To Health”
What Is Your Nature?
What is your true nature? Who are you, inside? What kinds of environments do you thrive in? Or, struggle? What is it that you really want? I talk frequently about how health is a journey. Mostly that’s in terms of nutrition, exercise, & mindset. But health (and life) is also a spiritual journey. There is a spiritualContinue reading “What Is Your Nature?”
I’ve heard several deeply experienced, wise people from different fields talk about their varying experiences with enlightenment, or union, or loss of sense of self, or … whatever language you choose. None are exactly the same but all have a few things in common. One of those things in common is the notion that becomingContinue reading “Enlightenment”
Don’t Deny Your Self
I refer to Paul Chek often here on this blog. He’s one of my mentors, and his health & wellness teachings are profound. Now, I don’t agree with everything he says. So, whether or not you decide to listen to this entire 4 hour podcast, that’s up to you. I found it interesting, although I’mContinue reading “Don’t Deny Your Self”
