One major challenge I see many folks struggling with is what I call the "Big Balancing Act."
Balancing today's needs with your long-term vision and goals.
Let's assume I'm talking about you for a moment.
You know you need to invest in your health,...
Picture a bustling medieval village, in the year 1400 A.D., where a young blacksmith named Vulcan toiled day and night, hammering away at his work.
One day, as he gazed at the great castle on the hill, he dreamed of crafting a masterpiece that...
Today's lesson is different.
Rather than talk about the usual things, like why detox diets will only frustrate you, I'll discuss racism.
And perhaps a simple way to end it once and for all.
Sorry, but I just need to weigh in on how I feel.
Are you feeling extra stressed and overwhelmed about things that usually were a breeze?
Maybe the little things you would have normally shrugged off are causing more stress and frustration than usual.
Can you relate?
The stress of life can add up...
Over the past 25+ years of coaching I've noticed a trend when it comes to unsuccessful people.
You know, the folks who set lofty goals and make big promises... yet never hit those goals.
Unsuccessful folks never quite dedicate themselves to the...
I once had a boss who thought that working harder meant putting in crazy long hours at the office.
He would come in early, stay late, and even sleep under his desk. I was like, "This isn't an office, it's a mattress showroom!"
If you want to improve your health, choose faith over fear.
Does that mean you never get concerned or scared?
In my opinion, having zero fear is a dangerous thing. Only someone with extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior feels...
At your latest checkup, your doctor told you to lose weight with healthy eating and regular exercise.
Following the doctor's orders, you cut back on pasta and pizza, but it feels like you're starving yourself.
Those low-fat, low-calorie...
Ever notice if your day gets started off rough, it often sets the tone for the rest of the day.
However, it doesn't have to be this way.
Stop trying to be perfect. Nobody is.
Stop believing that if you don't have time for a gym workout and three...
I’m going to ask you to do something a little weird right now.
I want you to imagine your favorite, most decadent thing to eat.
Maybe it’s a too-thick wedge of double-chocolate cake chased with an ice-cold cup of almond milk.
Walt Disney, the founder of the Disney company and creator of the iconic Disneyland and Disney World theme parks, was known to have a fascination with eternal life.
He reportedly believed that technology could be used to extend human life and even...
Maybe you remember it. I sure do.
I remember a few years back when the thought of shopping online was something my parents wouldn't even consider.
They couldn't trust putting their information into websites. No way.
They even shredded their papers...
Each season is almost like a miniature year.
Thinking about how quickly seasons change got me thinking about how life goes by pretty fast, too.
How many winters, springs, summers, and falls do you have left?
Tomorrow is not guaranteed so make sure...
I received an email from a client who is really struggling with anxiety and depression.
"Joe, I don’t know what I can look forward to."
Man, I could feel the hurt in their words.
I can say with full confidence that uncertainty weighs heavily...
Some time ago, I went to a baseball game with my buddy Ulysses (not his real name).
He's super successful in almost every area, except his personal health.
You may even know someone like this.
He owns a $10,000 Rolex watch, drives a $90,000 Land...
One of the most common things I've seen in my 25+ years of coaching is what I call the internal struggle.
See, I encounter people all the time who succeed for a while, then they start to fight the very approach that allowed them to be successful....
There is one reason why most people haven’t yet reached their goals, and it’s a simple one.
It’s something that I’ve struggled with in the past, and it just may be the one thing that’s holding you back from your big...
Get busy living or get busy dying.
In other words you can be proactive about your health or you can be reactive once your doctor discovers a problem.
When it comes to your health, it's better to be proactive.
But whatever you’re going...
When stress levels are high, you must find productive ways to decompress.
So I have a suggestion.
Take a brisk 10-minute walk when you need to de-frazzle your nerves.
One of the most undervalued (and oftentimes disregarded) advantages...
When it comes to your health, there are two kinds of people in the world.
Proactive and reactive.
Proactive folks choose a priority-one goal, deadline to achieve the goal, and follow a proven action plan.
Proactive folks choose to have either...
We're in a time right now that's going to test a lot of people.
Many over-40 men and women are battling obesity and, as a result, paralyzed with fear.
Late nights reading the gloom-and-doom news feed, combined with stress eating is...
With so many folks claiming that there is "no time" for exercise, I figured it was appropriate to address the “elephant” hanging out in the back of the room:
Take a moment to answer these two quick questions.
Nothing about getting lean and strong needs to be complex.
Especially since it doesn’t have to be.
Not in its most basic form.
By the time most folks get to 40 years of age, you've probably dabbled in more complicated exercise-and-diet plans...
So many 40-plus men and women are sitting around paralyzed with indecision.
That's why today's lesson is extra important.
