VENUE # 4 last in series

Welcome everyone...over the years, as a business owner, consultant and athlete, I have always felt a parallel between sports and business. The number one enemy facing both...Addiction. Allowed to hang around, game over. Addiction always wins, you lose. Addiction will control your life...until you have no life. No matter
what level of life you find yourself or if you are starting over...Start with your Self Image, that's the who am I and what am I all about. The IMPACT that we make is in direct proportion to our own self image. Purpose in life is more than writing down your goals and throwing the paper into a duffel bag or brief case. It's a visualization...a Passion. this passion doesn't allow for "a drive up window." It consumes your every fiber. No road map. You find a way. You begin to act and behave as though you were already there. First to the finish line. You climbed  your Mt Everest and reached the very top. People don't climb Mt Everest just to reach the top...they climb it to conquer themselves. You conquered yourself...what a feeling. First to the finish Line...Where Winners and Survivors Always Meet.

Jimmy O's Menu # 2

Welcome get there, start here. I needed to have my entire body, mind and spirit in "sync." Even though I competed in various sports through out my life, I felt I needed a "road map" to ready myself for the Senior Olympics, the Masters and the Nationals. Jan. 2004 my training began, only to hit a roadblock in March. My physician informed me I had prostate cancer. Elected to have the seed implant. Only missed two weeks of training. 2004 was a very tough year for me. Still managed to win a dozen gold medals, 3 silver and 3 bronze. When you have to pea every 20/30 minutes and still get to the starting line on time, that will test you. December of that year, I decided to have a complete blood study. What did my body need to compete at the highest level. Did not want to guess. Went to a nutritionist and added more to my "roadmap." Once a week had a session with a Reflexologist. And twice a week massage was in order. Next blog, my eating habits.
