Keep the goal the goalbe relentless podcast monday quick hit 27 - what is your win?
-Dan John

Dan is one of my favorite fitness authors and he’s well known for delivering simple but powerful messages. I am in agreement with him in that a lot of people get so caught up in their journey that they stray from the overall goal if they don’t keep it in mind.

However, I think a lot of that problem starts even before that: Continue reading

Be Relentless Podcast Episode 38 – How To Get the Support Your Fitness Journey Needs

One of the biggest keys to success in a fitness/health transformation, especially over the long term, isn’t just the will to succeed. It’s not just the vision. It’s not even just the knowledge.

I’ve been fortunate to have been part of a lot of fitness transformations, and time and time again the successful have SUPPORT.

As a matter of fact, a big box gym I used to work at used to say that 80% of people who didn’t have a personal trainer, workout buddy, or supportive spouse would fail to reach their workout goals. Now, I don’t know if that number is accurate, but it’s not outside the realm of reason.

So, how do you get support?

What if your spouse is always “sabotaging” you?

What if your friends are always trying to pull you out to Margarita Night, even though they know you’re on a diet? Continue reading

Be Relentless Podcast Quick Hit 24 – LUCK – What It Stands For

be relentless podcast quick hit 24 - luck - what it stands forLUCK

How often do you hear someone say “So and So is lucky!” or “That was a lucky break for you!”?

Now, there’s definitely some examples of luck or good coincidence, but when it comes from people being “lucky” in fitness, business, and many other facets of life, I’ve found that there’s usually something a lot more to it than a simple alignment of stars and planets, or whatever.

I was listening to a Real Estate Podcast (BiggerPockets) and one of the guests had an acronym for LUCK that I had never heard before.

It really hit home and I think it sums it up. Here’s my hot take.

Be Relentless Podcast Episode 37 – Four Lessons From the Best-Worst Time of My Life

New Podcast Episode!

Good times, bad times
You know I had my share…
-Led Zeppelin, “Good Times, Bad Times”

It’s funny.

When I get the chance to talk to people who’ve had some success in their life and I ask them about the best (or at least most valuable experience) in their life they almost always point to something that you could consider the “worst” time of their life.

Maybe they hit rock bottom.

Maybe their world fell apart.

Which is terrible.

But it’s also where they learned how to grow, build, and overcome. It turned into a valuable part of shaping them into who they are today.

Be Relentless Podcast – Monday Quick Hit 23 – Fall In Love With the Process

Allan T worked the process for six weeks, and earned the results!

Let’s be honest. The vast majority of people don’t hit their goals, whether it’s in fitness, business, or life in general.

They end up settling for less.

Now, is it because they’re not smart enough to get to their goals and dreams?

Usually not.

Is it because their goals and dreams aren’t rooted in reality?

Sometimes, but generally not, as most people actually dream pretty small once you boil away the extra.

No, most people fail because the way to their dreams is HARD.

And when it’s hard, they give up.

Why do they give up? Is it because they’ve hit a threshold of suffering that they just can’t manage? Again, maybe, but often times that isn’t the case at all.

They give up because the struggle and suffering that comes with chasing big dreams outmatches their EXPECTATION of what it would be.

So, what’s the answer? Listen and find out!
