Many of the best insights I have gained over the years have often been counter intuitive. For example, as I have been developing muscular strength with a rigorous weight training program, I have found that I can push more weight and complete more sets when I relax and calm myself mentally before and during each [...]
In this video update I talk about a drastic transformation I have gone through over the past year+ that has allowed me to create long term changes and create more positive habits after YEARS of trying and failing.

But a common question I [...]
One of the most difficult things to do for most people, is to admit that they have been wrong about something. For example, I have tried and failed a significant number of business ideas on my journey to become an entrepreneur. All of the failed ideas seemed amazing when I first started, but even when [...]
One thing I am notoriously guilty of is being way too hard on myself. I’m guessing you can relate For those of us who demand excellence and constant improvement from ourselves, it can be easy to forget how far you have come, how much skill you have developed and how many great things you have [...]
In today’s audio update, I share kind of a bizarre story of an incident I witnessed a number of years back. This particular event has stayed with me and I often think about it when things happen to me in my life. Especially events that I didn’t really want… I use this story as a [...]
Think back to a time where you were going through something pretty rough. You were taking a big emotional hit and your stress levels were through the roof. Maybe someone was upset with you, you made a BIG mistake or you did something that caused you to feel complete embarrassment. You didn’t know how you [...]
Big Goals. Large Visions for your life. Any major success you want to obtain… Is probably going to take a lot longer than you anticipate when you start the journey. Its just human nature. We get a good idea about something we want to be, do, have and the idea captures our minds and emotions. [...]
I’m always hesitant to mention the topic of goal setting because it seems like one of those topics that people have had enough of. But goal setting has always been and will always be a cornerstone principle of success. One thing I recently learned about goal setting are that there are different “types” or categories [...]

The past few days have been an especially busy time for me. In my line of business we do a lot of product launches which inherently increase the amount of demand on my time. I’m usually bouncing around between emails, phone calls, Skype messages while still working on new projects that I intend on advancing [...]
