Have you ever been paralyzed by fear? To the point where you couldn’t move?
Why do you think that happens?
More than likely it’s all in your mind. Actually I’d be willing to bet my bank account that’s exactly why.
See the reason I am writing this to you today is to get you to realize that we become victims of our own false realities. You have to realize that you are capable of accomplishing ANYTHING you put your positive mental atitude towards.
I witnessed this first hand this weekend when I introduced the dreaded BOX JUMP to Bootcamp. I actually decided to put it out again today because I want to see how many people are willing to put their fears aside and prove they can conquer something amazing.
So, if you don’t know what this is it’s an 18 inch platform that I have people jump up onto and land both feet. For some this is just below their knees so it’s VERY intimidating. I saw a few people frozen with fear. Saying ‘no way….I can’t’ and my rebutle was “clear your mind and do it. You can and you will. Now go!” And whalaah….people were flying on that thing! I mean this was absolutely amazing! High fives, cheers, I mean straight up goosebumps people!
The best part is people are walking away feeling like they could conquer the world.
THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!!!
Harness that feeling and own it.
So, please listen to me. The next time you think you can’t do something and that negative self talk starts to creep into your head….STOP! Take a few deep breathes and CLEAR YOUR MIND. Allow yourself to be free of the demons and the chains that bind you. They are NOT real! Do not manifest negativity. Instead, focus on how you will conquer new heights, embrace your fears and attack them at 100 MPH! You have to know that you are strong! You wouldn’t be given a challenge that you couldn’t overcome. The question then becomes will you take that challenge head on?
So….I challenge you this week. Start an exercise program, start eating clean, do an extra bootcamp, try a new exercise you’ve never done, etc. You get the point. Pick something outside your comfort zone and shatter the mold.
I hope this email keeps you energized this week and you accomplish something great!
Actually I don’t hope….I know you will!
So I wanted to send out a quick but powerful message to you all this morning.
Many of us struggle with our goals and hit roadblocks. This is not uncommon. This applies to all areas of life not just in a weight loss journey. Could be at your job, at home, your financials, whatever. Sometimes we just find ourselves side tracked and get off the beaten path.
Now my question to you is this…..WHY IS THAT? How and WHY do we get distracted from our goal(s)?
There can be many reasons BUT I am willing to put my money on one major distraction.
Now you’re pobably saying this doesn’t make any sense. Well listen to me for just a min here….
The reason we set goals and work hard to achieve them is to ultimately achieve happiness right? (I’d hope so anyway).
So if we are so harnessed in on our happiness how could this be what’s holding us back?
HERE’S THE KICKER….
You lose sight of YOUR happiness by focusing on too many OTHER people’s happiness. What you need to understand is that it is an amazing gift to give and to help others but NOT at the expense of your own goals and happiness. Sometimes you just have to let go of the dead weight in order to fly. You can’t solve everyone else’s problems if you’re not focused on your own. I have a rule at BBF. You are not allowed to give advice to friends until you take your own advice first. You can not tell your friends to workout 5x a week and eat healthy unless you are already setting the example.
I’m sure you can think of many examples of this in your daily life. This could be at work, at home, with family, co-workers, neighbors, firends, etc. Someone usually always needs something BUT is it truly worth your time? This is the question you will have to ask yourself and if the answer is no then move on. The energy suckers are out there so BEWARE!
I don’t want this to sound like a negative rant because it’s not that whatsoever. This is just a heads up to tell you once again to focus on yourself and what you truly want out of life and your goals. Don’t allow yourself to get sidetracked by others that only want to take up more time. Focus on those that will LIFT you up and CATAPULT you to the next level. Focus on those that bring a smile to your face. Focus on those that put a skip in your step after you talk to them. Focus on those that MOTIVATE you to do more and be better. Most of all focus on those that bring POSITIVE LIGHT into your life! THESE are the people you want in your life!
Have an amazing week!

Good morning peeps!
Well I am actually writing this email to you while I’m flying over the skies of Wisconsin at 20,000, at least I think that’s what the pilot said, feet. I was gone for just a few days out to sunny San Diego attending a fitness business seminar. This was a very unique experience for me as it was the first time attending something like this. This was a small group of fitness professionals that gathered together for an intense two day conference to help each other share and build strategies in order to grow and develop our businesses. It was very intense and to be honest I was intimidated as all ….you know what! Here I am from little ole Wisconsin traveling across the nation to sit with a room full of crazy successful, driven, goal oriented people, and above all my mentor and coach. I mean this stuff is scary! Talk about HOT SEAT session! Sheeesh! Anyways I could sit here for hours and tell you more but I want to make a correlation between my experiences this weekend and what many of YOU experience with fitness, nutrition, and weight loss on a daily and weekly basis.
So here’s the parallels as I see it. I went there with the purpose of bettering myself and becoming the utmost elite coach and leader I can be. I knew my WHY! I knew what was ‘driving’ me to be there. Every day YOU wake up and make the conscious decision whether TO or whether not to make a change in your life. When you do COMMIT to yourself and jump head first into a program like Bootcamp it’s just what I had experienced this past weekend. You may feel intimidated at first even though YOU KNOW it’s exactly where you need to be. You feel and think in your own head like everyone is going to judge you even though everyone is there to HELP and SUPPORT YOU! You have to face the ‘hot seat’ or in other words the Bootcamp workout and see what you’re made of. Most of all we fear ‘the man’. You know what I’m sayin! The dreaded Bootcamp Sergeant that’s going to bark at us and tell us how much more we need to do. Yes, this is true I do bark a little bit…haha! In my case it was my mentor that I had to face and ladies and gents he was not and I repeat NOT easy on me. He forced me completely outside my comfort zone and set goals and expectation wayyyyyy beyond what I would set for myself. Now here’s the great thing. NONE of those goals were goals that I couldn’t accomplish! That’s what was awesome about this entire experience. I realized, as I preach to each and every one of you, that once you push yourself outside your comfort zone and BELIEVE in yourself you accomplish ANY GOAL!
The last take away that I got from this is that I left with M.A.P. My Massive Action Plan! I knew exactly what I needed to do to hit my next 90 day goal. That’s EXACTLY what a program like BBF can do for you. If you’re ready to jump into the deep end then I challenge you….JUST DO IT! Take that step off the ledge and let go of all your fears. It will be the best decision of your life.
