For those of you who think you can’t make it, that you are too underprivileged and poor… You are wrong. It doesn’t matter where you come from, what your mom does or your dad does. It doesn’t matter if you are black, white, orange or purple. It doesn’t matter how smart or skilled you are. You. Can. Make. It. To. The. Top.

One of my best friends is from Detroit. He had a mother who neglected him and a father who left him. He basically grew up on the streets. Talk about starting from the bottom. He forced himself to graduate high school, worked to put himself through college to earn his undergraduate degree. College is where I met my boy and we clicked instantly. Now he owns five different businesses at the age of 27. Yes, I said five. Just so you know I’m not bluffin’ you can check out one of his company sites at www.treeservicespokane.org. It makes him a killing.

1MR

1MR – One more rep, this is a concept I live by. If you don’t regularly work out, don’t worry. It doesn’t only apply to lifting weights and getting swoll. It applies to all areas of life.

Most people do just enough. Just enough to get by without having to work too hard. This is a typical way of life for many people in our nation and in the world. Well I am here to tell you that if you want to see success in your work, in your relationships, in getting fit and in any other area of life, you have to have the mindset of 1MR!

When you have made over 100 sales calls at work and the day is coming to an end but you know you need to make a few more sales, give it one more rep. Make those extra few calls to make the sale! When you come home from work and don’t want to do anything but sit your lazy butt on the couch and watch TV, think of those who you love. Give it one more rep and spend meaningful time with them, even if it just fifteen minutes. When you are in the gym and you have been lifting weights or are doing cardio and are exhausted, think about how that extra last few minutes of pushing through could take you to the next level. Give it one more rep.

What’s Your Why

What is your why

Why do you do what you do? It is a simple question, but most people don’t even know how to answer it. Too many people in today’s world are simply going through the motions never giving 100% at what they do. What a boring, average and sad way to live life!!!

People without a reason for doing something are like chickens running around with their heads cut off. They struggle to find a purpose and a direction to move in. Your why has to be deep. It has to pull on your heartstrings and push you to get out of bed in the mornings. If your why is not meaningful to you then it will not drive you when you are struggling and wanting to quit. One of my whys is to retire my parents before they turn 60. I have a couple years left. How many people in their mid twenties are able to retire their parents? Not many, it is a difficult feat. But nothing can stop me because my why burns deep.
