I don’t...

It’s a simple phrase but in can be incredibly powerful if you use it the right away. Especially if you use it instead of I can’t when it comes to a habit you are trying to change.  

Seriously, it just feels so much better.

Why do you want to lose that weight?

Just why are you trying to lose that weight? Is it affecting your health, your performance, your worth as a human being? Or is it affecting your ego? 

I’m all about losing fat to be healthier. But when is good enough…well…good enough? You know the scale isn’t the best measure. We’ve gone over this time and time again.

The journey of a thousand miles...

I can start anything, I've done that a thousand times. I have unfinished and ill-advised projects, workout plans and business ventures piled sky high. What I didn't have was any idea where I was going.

Are you making progress?

There's a thought in Buddhism, Judaism, almost all the -isms and philosophies, in fact, that goes something like "wash the dishes to wash the dishes". It means stay in the moment, notice what you're doing, feel the water, smell the air and be really present. It's easy to drift off and rush through things to get to that cup of tea when you're done

Look over there!

The best instructors I had had forgotten more than I'll ever know. Yet I rarely noticed their depth of knowledge because that's not what they were trying to teach me. Knowing the technical details of a thing hardly ever makes you better at doing something. It's the application of the basic principles to the situation that make you better at doing that thing.

Exercising Futility

Ah, spring. The fresh air, the warming temperatures, all that sunshine. Must be time to start running again. 

If this sounds like you, if you're that person who's put off "getting back in shape" until now and thinks running will do the trick, let's think through this together, shall we?

Keep your judgement off my workout

You're a couple of months into your new fitness program. You are making great progress and are super happy because this is the longest you've been able to stick to a program. In fact, you are so excited that you decide to post a selfie to your favorite social media site and....oh, snap....here come all the comments.

Ya Gotta Have Standards

It’s important to have standards.

For your business dealings, your dating choices and, yes, your movement.

We are big believers in movement standards. What constitutes a squat, press, handstand, pushup? Without standards, there really is no movement.

Why not sturdy?

In my estimation, as a human being, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual preference, religious affiliations, taste in fashion or favorite color, one thing you should strive to be is sturdy. If you're not striving to be sturdy, i.e. strong, resilient, capable, useful, you are allowing yourself to disgracefully & ungracefully slide into decrepitude.

Where does confidence come from?

I started studying martial arts at the ripe age of 30. I know 30 is still pretty wet behind the ears, relative to where I am now at the youthful age of 47. 

My point is I never did Martial Arts as a kid, much as I secretly wanted to. I was shy.
