Failure. If there was one word that scared the heck out of people it would be failure. So many people put off their goals, their dreams, their aspirations because they are afraid of that word. They are so afraid of the possibility of failure that it paralyzes them to never even get started. That's kind of crazy to think about isn't it? You don't even start down a path in fear of MAYBE failing at it. Think about your own life for a minute here. Has there been a time where fear of failure stopped you from taking action towards something you wanted? Did you talk yourself out of a goal or a dream because you felt the fear of failure was so imminent why even bother getting started? Why does this one word have so much power over us? What does failure even mean? Webster says: Failure - A lack of success or a falling short. The definition is pretty telling. It's telling in the fact that nowhere in that short statement does it say the one thing...

Maybe you have set really exciting big goals before but were unable to achieve them? I've seen so many people set goals but not know the steps in how to achieve them. They have huge aspirations but fall short every time. Well, you aren’t alone. In fact, most of us live with unfulfilled aspirations. It’s a sad fact that most people end up talking themselves out of their goals if they don’t find success. I want to show you 4 successful techniques (Do This) and 4 unsuccessful techniques (Not That) to help you achieve the goals you want to accomplish. Do This: Make a Step-by-Step Plan. If you are serious about achieving your goal, then you need to create a step-by-step plan on how to do it.My most successful clients break down their overall goal into smaller sub-goals. Each sub-goal needs to be concrete, measurable and time-based. You want to lose weight? Cool, How much? 50 lbs! Ok, great by when? Six months! Okay! That’s roughly 8 lbs a month. Focusing on the 8lbs per month is much more attainable and can help you gauge your progress compared to just focusing on the end result. Not That:...

People hate change. I’ve met with so many people who tell me they are desperate for change, that they NEED to get healthy, but end up always self-sabotaging themselves in the process. This was mind-blowing to me until I realized a very important concept about human psychology. Self-sabotage is your subconscious way of protecting yourself.  I know this sounds crazy, but this is the way the human brain is designed. The brain hates change and it thrives in a constant internal environment called homeostasis. As long as your subconscious believes that you are safer being out-of-shape then you'll be stuck. Frustrating, right? Don’t give up just yet. The good news is I’ve coached clients around this struggle by identifying their subconscious fears and formulating a plan for success around whatever they feel is holding them back. Let’s start digging around your reasons. Do you believe…Your comfortable? Being comfortable with where you are today could be the reason that you sabotage your efforts to improve your life through change. Change is scary and so is uncertainty. Your comfort zone is only holding you back from where you truly want...

Today you have a clean slate with a brand new year spread out in front of you, filled with endless possibilities. How will you harness your potential to create the very best you? I recommend using the teachings of Dr. Maxwell Maltz in his legendary book ‘The New Psycho-Cybernetics’. Dr. Maltz created the original science of self improvement and success, so who better to turn to when you’re ready to take your life to another level. His teachings have stood the test of time. Take the following and get all that you want out of 2017: 1. Use Your Imagination If you thought that imaginations were only valued in preschool, think again. One of the key points in ‘The New Psycho-Cybernetics’ is the technique of using your imagination to reprogram and manage your self image. You may have been exposed to self improvement strategies that tell you to ‘act as if’ or to ‘fake it till you make it.’ Those typically don’t work because your self image is still the same. According to Dr. Maltz, your self image is the key to changing your...
