We have been misled to think that what we need is found externally. Sure, part of life is having great experiences in the physical world. But, we can get caught up chasing everything around us. And forget to look in the one place where we can find it all. Inside. Continue reading

A lot of people don't own their bodies. They are just renting them. Like when you rent a car, you kind of know how all the bells and whistles work. But, really, you just know how to use the car to get you to where you want to go. And... Continue reading

Here's an interesting way to look at old cultures that believed such things as magic were real. Yes, you and I both know that magic is not real in any provable sense. But, they didn't. And they made their decisions and took actions in ways that reflected their belief. What... Continue reading

Words can be magic. Want proof? Repeat the following to yourself: "I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy." Keep repeating this until it's the first thing your mind does when you wake up and the last thing you do before you go to bed. Sounds easy, right?... Continue reading

Recommended by Terry Crews via Tim Ferriss's Tribe of Mentors: The Master Key System by Charles F Haanel.

The act of maintaining optimal posture is like a constant war against gravity. The problem is that we don't know we are currently engaged in such an ongoing war. It's like those fantasy movies where the main character gets sucked into an age-old war between races of beings far older... Continue reading

What kind of questions do you ask yourself? It's okay if you don't. But, you might want to start. Questions most of the time lead to answer. Most of the time. The real question is, where are you getting those answers? If the answer isn't some form of, 'I find... Continue reading

Finnish concept that is said to be a combination of English terms like resilience, bravery, stoic determination and so on. The Finnish see this as their national mindset and character. There is no English equivalent of the word. That's not surprising. I don't know many Finnish people if any. But... Continue reading

When it comes to fitness, it benefits us from a holistic standpoint to test both ends of different spectrums. Can we move explosively and still be able to move slowly and under control when needed? Can we bend and flex our spine the way it was designed to while being... Continue reading

Discipline. What does that look like to you? What does it mean? A lot of us want to start off the New Year "right." "Right" only becomes right when we can string days of "right" together. "Right" becomes a habit when we can do it for months on end. So,... Continue reading

So, Google has created an AI that learned how to play chess in 4 hours. The AI then went on to beat the current standard in chess programs. Reports may be slightly exaggerated, but the thing that caught my eye was that the program somehow created sequences of moves that... Continue reading

What are yours based on? A lot of people will base their expectations on references in their own lives. But, they usually don't reflect most or even some of the possibilities of life. It's a natural bias our minds have to skew heavily towards what we know. What we've experienced... Continue reading

We never really know how our actions and our words can have an effect on the world. One piece of advice, one smile or a brief conversation can go a long way. Not just with the initial person with whom you had the interaction. What if that person is teacher... Continue reading

I was watching Titanic the other day. Yeah, yeah yeah. Can it. It's a fun movie, okay? Sue me. Anyway, there's a scene in which Rose Dewitt Bukater, played by Kate Winslett, talks about how the inertia of her life had taken over and she felt like she had no... Continue reading

What does it mean to truly be an "outside the box" thinker? Everyone has their biases and opinions. This is where a lot of our "boxes" begin. The problem is that we sometimes mistake "slightly different" thinking for "outside the box" thinking, but it's all still in the same box.... Continue reading

We learn more about our genenome everyday. For a long time, we've thought that everything we are gets passed down through the modification of our genetic code. Epigenetics is the study of how traits are passed through generations without the alteration of any genetic code. So, if you needed motivation... Continue reading

The level of focus that Kobe speaks of is intended to yield top performers. Most people are not willing to do what it takes to get to those levels. But, they love the idea. The problem most people run into is that they have other things they are less willing... Continue reading

"You can't possibly become better than me because you are not spending the time on it that I do. If you want to spend the time, you can't, because you have other things, you have other responsibilities that are taking you away from it. So, I already won." #8/#24 Continue reading

Do you want the award or the success? We don't necessarily have to choose and they can be one in the same to people, but here is what I see as the difference. Success is in many ways accepted responsibility. When we succeed in whatever ways we define "success," our... Continue reading

Higher planes of reality exist. But, we have this notion that a higher plane is like a whole different dimension that looks nothing like real life. While that's probably true and we cannot account for dimensions we don't know how to detect yet, the higher planes I speak of look... Continue reading

Here are a couple of different ways we can choose to look at the concept of acceptance. As a society aimed at bettering the trajectory of all humankind, there are things that happen in the world that we cannot accept. As individuals attempting to better ourselves to contribute to the...

I tell clients I work with that their bodies move the way they move because of everything they've done (and most the times, not done) up to that point in their lives. Our movement and posture is the sum of activities, stances, positions, weird sleeping styles, STRESS, etc.. To improve... Continue reading

Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes... ...shouldn’t be confused with me walking while wearing someone else’s shoes. I’m still me, and I still think the same things that I did before I put another person’s shoes on. Do I know how he or she got them? Or what they... Continue reading
