Do You Have The Slight Edge?

This is a scene taken from Coach Carter. I saw that movie years ago, but forgot about this scene until I was at recent seminar.  This scene struck such a cord with me!

I remember back in 2001, I was working my ass off for a company, I was traveling, working crazy hours and my workouts and nutrition were none insistent. I survived off of what was in the vending machine (ps. it was subsidized so you could get a ton for $1.00) and scarfing down leftovers from vendor meetings. Then I’d be too tired and way to hungry to cook anything so it was whoever could deliver the fastest. Plus with all my travel heading to the grocery store was a joke, because anything fresh would go bad. Does this sound like any of you?

I tell you this so you understand that I get it! I didn’t always live the “clean, healthy” lifestyle. I tell you this because I want you to know that I can help.

I was like so many of you. I was stressed, overworked and not living the life I wanted to live. But I woke up one day and said enough is enough! Is this my life. My pants don’t button, I’m always tired, my skin looks like hell and I just don’t feel good.

Are you willing to give me 30 days? Can you commit to 30 days of small daily consistent action? If you are shoot me an email or leave me a comment below and we’ll take it from there.


It’s Time To Get Real!

Here we are with less than 4 months to go until the end of 2012. In the remaining days of the year what can you accomplish? Looking back what goals did you say you were going to hit? Where are you? I say today is the day you put a stake in the ground and pick 3 goals that you want to get done between now and the end of 2012. Here are 5 questions that can help you narrow down those 3 things and GET REAL about what you want and how to go about getting it!

  1. What do you want?
    • run a marathon
    • lose 20 pounds
    • get consistent with your nutrition
    • take some time and think about this
  2. Why do you want it?
  3. What’s preventing you from getting it?
    • how long have you wanted this?
    • what have you tried in the past?
  4. If you don’t reach your goal, how will you feel?
  5. Can you reach your goal by yourself?
    • What resources will you need?

Here’s bonus question — Will you let me help you? I’m running an 8 week challenge that starts the 24th!! Are you ready for a change?
