Do Not Settle

By On July 18, 2016    UNCATEGORIZED



Over the weekend I found out that one of my friends from college lost his fight with cancer.  He passed away at the age of 41, leaving a wife and 2 sons.  This was an emotional weekend.  So many of my friends were posting pictures on social media of our time in college (seeing all of us as 20 year olds sure brought back a bunch of memories).  We really had some great times.  I have a great group of friends.  Throughout our lives we have been through our share of adversity and always stick together.  We are a band of brothers.


As we were gathered together over the weekend we were sharing stories of our lives together and with our friend Tommy.  We laughed a lot!   Shed a few tears too!  Tommy did things his way.  He had a larger than life personality and said whatever he wanted (this, at times, made for an interesting situation).  He did not settle.


That is the one thing I kept coming back to all weekend…not settling.  I see it too often.  It comes up when I am talking to clients about their weight loss struggles.  I hear it from people about other aspects of their lives too.  Some people do not like their jobs, the relationships they are in, or the person they have become.  They settle.


I am a big believer of living your life and enjoying it as much as you can.  Now I don’t mean this as being reckless.  Actually, I am talking about the complete opposite.  You need to take care of yourself.  You need to eat right (most of the time) and exercise (some of the time).  But you also need to live your life.  Love more, laugh more, surround yourself with people that you love being with, and be the best version of yourself.


I am sure you lose sight of these fundamentals from time to time.  I get caught up with things that steer me away from this too.  But, when I look back on my life I want to be able to say I was an amazing husband, great father, and someone who helped people take back their lives.  I want to believe I did the best that I could.  I’m sure you do too.


We all know of someone that passed away earlier than they should have.  It always seems to be the case that these people knew something that we didn’t…they put a lifetime of experience into a limited number of years.  In truth, we don’t know when our time will come.  But we owe it to ourselves and those people that love us, to be the best we can be.


Don’t settle.  Commit to your excellence.


Self Doubt is Crippling

By On July 14, 2016    UNCATEGORIZED


We all struggle with self-doubt one way or another.  In my own life I doubted my ability as a person, husband, father, and business owner.  The earlier times, were extremely difficult to overcome.  Our past has the ability to create a framework for our future whether we like it or not.  There were times where I just thought this was the way it has to be.


I have taken great steps to accept that what you experience in your past has NOTHING to do with the present or the future.  I have the power to make change in myself.  And so do you.


At this point in my business life, I work with clients in 2 main programs: (a) private coaching program where we focus more on the mindset of weight loss and sprinkle in nutrition and exercise, and (b) personal training where clients come into my training facility for weight loss guidance.  Although 2 very different programs, but we are trying to achieve the same result…lifelong success with weight loss.


Regardless of the program or the client, we are always coming up against self-doubt.  In fact, one conversation I had this week with a client was shocking.  Mary (not her real name) is getting great results.  She has already lost 15lbs, down a size, and feels great.  She works out at home 3 days per week before she goes to work and her children join when they are up in time.  Mary plans out all her meals and sticks to the plan. In fact, her kids are now eating healthier with her.  Mary has become a role model for her children.  This is motivation that will keep you focused.  People have been telling her that she looks like she lost weight.  She is very happy.


Then one morning while writing in her journal (this is a requirement in my private coaching program), she wrote, “I do not deserve to be happy!”  Wait, what?  Mary is making this amazing change in her life, she is getting the support from her family, and she loves the results.  But all of a sudden she had a moment of doubt and it caused her to lose focus for a couple days.


Don’t worry this has a happy ending.  The plan we have in place for her allowed Mary to get back on track with little trouble.  But this is something many of us can relate to.


I was listening to a Tony Robbins podcast the other day in which he discussed how failure is necessary for success.  So along your weight loss journey is makes perfect sense if you have self-doubt or struggle with some sort of adversity.  You could let that cripple you and let you fail…again.  Or you can remind yourself why your goals are important and get back your motivation.


It’s ok to have a setback along the way.  In fact, it is necessary for your success.  Embrace it.


Commit to your excellence.

That Was Scary!

By On July 12, 2016    UNCATEGORIZED


Looking over the edge of that hill, the only thing holding me in was a lap bar, and the operator said the roller coaster travels at 76 miles per hour.  It scared the crap out of me, but I wasn’t saying a word.  My son was scared too.  But he was putting on his “tough guy” face.


We just got back from a few days at Hershey Park.  My son was finally tall enough to go on the “big boy” roller coasters.  He wanted to go on all of them.  My enthusiasm for roller coasters has dwindled as I have gotten older.  The ride in question is called Skyrush.  It goes fast, offers big drops, and goes upside down.  The only thing holding you in is a bar that goes across your legs.  I was scared (Did I mention that).


I was very proud of both my kids.  They went on rides that intimidated them last year.  But I always talk to them about doing things they are not comfortable with.  Things that make them hesitate and think before they act.  I encourage them to challenge themselves and do things they are afraid of.  Sometimes they go for it, sometimes fear wins.  That is part of the process.


I encourage my clients to challenge themselves too.  Before we left for Hershey Park, I spoke to a few of my private coaching clients.  We were not going to speak for a couple weeks.  So I asked them to come up with a 2-week weight loss goal.  There was hesitation across the board.  No one was too quick to offer a response.  I asked them why.  The typical response was, “I don’t want to say a number and fail.”


My goal is to get each of my clients out of their comfort zone.  Their “happy place” is not failing.  For many people I talk to, they are afraid of a weight loss program because they don’t want to fail.  Its actually fairly common.

Change doesn’t happen in your comfort zone.  In fact, you need to get far outside of it if you really want success.  Make a declaration, “I am going to lose 10lbs in the next 6 weeks.”  Now start taking the steps you get there.


If you need help with the steps, get my “Ultimate Weight Loss Action Plan” by clicking the link below.  This is a step-by-process that has grown over my 14-year career helping people believe they can lose weight and then watch them be successful.  Now it is yours FREE.


You need to get out of your comfort zone to be successful, but no one said you can’t get a little help along the way.
