The Most Critical Part of Your Journey

You mind if I’m blunt today? Awesome… There will always be someone that loses weight faster than you. There will always be someone that can do more push-ups than you. There will always be someone that finds it easier than you to eat healthy. Accept this. This is the most crucial step in your journey before trying to tackle any …

My Heart Was Crushed

I chose to start my usual “intro” of “Good morning!” although it’s been a challenging 10 days. Last Tuesday night, I lost Panther, my cat of 17 years. He’s been by my side through a divorce from my high school sweetheart, 3 different homes, my 115 pound weight loss journey, several career changes (including going out on my own), and hundreds …

Listen, my wife still tries to do it… “Mikey, can you remind me to ____?” No mam, I can’t. I’ve tried to tell her I don’t trust myself. I’m old…er. Things slip my mind.

Throw This Away

It was time I practiced what I preached… Mother’s Day weekend, my mother-in-law sent us home with half a cake. I’ve always told my clients, “If it’s in the house, you’ll eat it.” I love cake.

1-Star Review :(

I have a friend in a network marketing business that was concerned about a potential customer finding a bad review online about the product she’s selling. I couldn’t help but chuckle… I then asked her if the Bible has helped her in her life journey and she replied with, “Of course.” I then told her that it has HUNDREDS of 1-star reviews. …

Print This Out and Read Often

Cleaning up my office one day, I found a stack of business cards from when I trained people privately. On the front of my card was the usual stuff—my phone number, email, and services offered. On the back was my logo and one of my favorite verses in the Bible… No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later …

This is Happening Right Now

Good morning! Today, I wanted to share a message from my friend and mentor, Craig Ballantyne… “What do you have to lose? Nothing. Nothing that matters, anyway. The harsh reality is that people already talk behind your back… negative people want to bring you down… So what? Are you going to let them stop you? No. Never. Go out and be your …
