Grinder

Welcome everyone...it's that word again...Motivation. Webster define motivation...to provide an incentive. And defines an intangible...incapable of being apprehended by the mind or senses.
History tells us that more words, books and speeches have tried in
vain to define motivation. Viewpoint...motivation is still the # 1
frontier. Let's begin...change brings conflict and conflict brings stress. Change and conflict are moving targets. We want to motivate either ourselves or others. Translating and making application is challenging. Incentives (bribes) short term. You have
to be a "grinder." We are facing megatrends. Steps...1) remove the
obstacles. 2) worry will destroy you as will indecision. 3) address
issues now, not tomorrow. 4) goals. 5) write down what you need
to accomplish...all the little things. Motivation is internal not
external. Have patience! Associate with motivated people. I have no time for the negative. If you are not "driven," you are not motivated.

The Brain

Hello and welcome everyone...for the most part, our lives are controlled by time, distance and habits. Addiction can be added. We become mechanical in our every day doings...that's the danger.
When we can go through life without thinking...why exist. We need
to be in control of who we are and what do we stand for. When we
take thinking away...we become a nothing. Most of society goes
through life, exercise and training robotic. We need to emphasis
thinking (the brain) in our activity. A workout should be thought out...daily. It's a good thing we don't have a "remote" to send our
clone to workout (yet). Motivation and passion are the building blocks. Next week...motivation application in our lives.

Fate/Destiny

Hello and welcome everyone...let's start off with this...modern medicine and know how helps all of us to live longer. The quality
of life is  mostly in our hands. So we move the needle from the 70's
to the 80's and 100's. Are we going to "hang on" with a walker and
tubes or choose to be self sustaining on our own. Most of us will
fight for one more breath. I have seen it and so have you. How many pills will we take for the next 15-20 years. And then forced
into assistant living. Three weeks ago I stopped my exercise routine
for three days. I got old, felt old, lost functional mobility. Solution
for a healthy life style...EXERCISE! I don't want to just survive, I
want to live...on my own. Page 2...why is it that people with disabilities, less gifted, devastating hardship...have that inner strength to overcome obstacles, accomplish more and excel. Fate
is what life gives you...destiny is what you do with it.

A Cleansing

Hello and welcome everyone...a couple times a year I like to pull off the highway and take a back road. This cleanses and refreshes me. So hop in and let's go. Those of us who exercise, any body motion need to reach out to those that won't or don't. Society is
cluttered with people who are "inactive." Society is changing so
fast that even a digital camera can't keep focus. Society is fast becoming "faceless." For years now I have said "what day is it?"
When confusion sets in, people lose tract of time and a purpose in life. Tough questions...define your self, who are you, what do you stand for. What is the "face" of our society? We have to stay grounded. Next page...Energy. For energy...1) maca 2) dandelion 3) chlorophyll 4) wheatgrass 5) exercise. Next week...GINGER. You will love it.

Stop the Slide

Hello everyone...addressing questions I received this past week. "How do I stop a downward slide in performance? How do I
regain my self confidence? How do I correct bad habits?" Athletes
worry too much about what others think. Looking for social approval. That's a distraction. Wanting to be the "star." Wanting to be the headliner. Trying to be "cute." Allowing yourself to be caught up in these distractions, taking shortcuts leads to confusion
and leads to sloppy play and training. Go back to the basics. Work on no more than three things at a time. Focus on your strengths,
what you do well. Stay focused...stay the course...one step at a time. Be patient. Each day study your notes and mediate on your
course of action. These things have worked for 1000's of athletes.

WINNING

Hello and welcome everyone...thank you for your responses. Today
is about Winning. Any one working out, training or competing is
compelled to winning/overcoming. You probably already know the
following. Winning first begins from within...begins with in your
state of mind. Oh then there is the mental state of mind. Emotions
affect you mentally and physically. Frustration can linger long after
"that moment." Negative emotions can be triggered from a variety
of sources...mental errors, bad calls, couches and subpar performance. Negative emotions increase muscle tension, accelerate breathing, loss of coordination, depletes your energy.
Mental consequences such as reduced confidence, loss of focus and
depletes energy. Author Richard Carlson, "a mind that is out of the
present is futile ground for worry, anxiety and regret." To WIN,
you overcome the unexpected.
