11 Ways To Make Sure You Travel First Class

I am writing this while sitting on a ten and a half hour flight back from Europe.  Over the last 5 days, I had the opportunity to present to over 500 people in 4 different Danish cities.  As always, I get invigorated from presenting, but I must admit looking long flights in the face can be daunting. 

Are You Ready For An Upgrade?

Upgrades are around you every day. You may recognize the term because you are asked for one almost every time you open your computer or turn on your phone, or that you may hope to get one every time you get on a plane. 

The Most Important Number You Will Count Today

Your day revolves around numbers.  From the minute you are wake up and check the time, to the calories you count that make up your late night snack, you are constantly driven by numbers throughout your day.  Phone calls, page counts, street signs, stock prices, and how much change you got back for your coffee all rely on your ability to process and understand numbers. 

7 Holiday Gifts You Should Have Returned

It may be hard for you to believe it is a little over two weeks since holidays have ended, but I am sure you can still find some remnants of the holiday season lingering on.  From discounted sales at local stores, to decorations you haven’t yet taken down, there is still work to be done before the holidays are officially over.  

Embrace The Grind: How To Get What You Want In 2015

Now that the holidays have come to a close, you may have been woken up by your alarm today, rolled over and resolved to “get back to the grind.”  Before you grab your same-old coffee and jump back into your work while keeping “business as usual,” I want to caution you that nothing in your life is going to change until you do.

17 Ways To Set Yourself “Free”

The first time I heard the term “free” used to advertise food was with gum.  Trident was the first to go “sugar-free” in the mid 1960’s, but I was first introduced to the concept by “4 out of 5 Dentists” because I had braces and sugar-free gum was supposed to be better for my teeth. 

5 Things To Stop (And Start) Telling Your Kids

In training, it is not uncommon to spend a lot of time selecting specific exercises, reps, sets, rest periods, and types of food in order to get the desired result.  In parenting and coaching, however, it is less common to spend that kind of energy selecting the precise words, tone, and posture to get a result for which we are looking.

Change Your Thinking Change Your Life

I am here in Las Vegas for the NSCA National conference.  Yesterday I had the honor to speak for 2 hours about the TFW system, presenting alongside some of the top strength coaches in the world.  This experience reminded me what you can achieve with 15 years of passionate work.

Do You Know How To STACK Your Supplements?

The market for dietary supplements is gigantic, so it’s no surprise that new products appear on the shelf almost every week. The thing is, a majority of these supplement products don’t work, and the ones that do rarely live up to the marketing hype.

Your Motivation Is Incomplete

If you have read any of the top motivational books of our time from the likes of Napoleon Hill, Andrew Carnegie, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, and Zig Ziglar, then I am sure you have come across a lot of similar ideas.
