Hi Team...

This morning I came across a quote from legendary NBA Coach, Pat Riley...

"Excellence is the gradual result of always trying to do better"....

Love this.


Because it is true.

You see, too often we are committed to now.

And being in the now is good- but the reality is that certain things take time.

Acquiring certain skills, takes time.

Being confidence in yourself, takes time.

Understanding a certain line of work, takes time.

It all takes time, yet time is something none of us seem to have.

But, if we do not have time, then we can not expect to be excellent.

I think of my friend Mitchell Kaneff's company, Arkay Packaging.

They turned 100 years old this year...

They became the best packaging company in the World over time.

Did they start that way?

Of course not, nobody does because Grandpa Max had a lot of learning to do..

But, OVER -TIME they became the best.

100 years later, still the best.

You can do the same- but you have to be willing to do the work required.

If you do the work that is required, victory is the payoff. 

Will it be easy- no!

But, will it be worth it? Yes!

I have this firm belief...

If you are doing what you love to do and you do the work (all of it, no shortcuts) you can not fail unless you stop thinking about what is possible and stop doing the required work.

When you believe in what is possible and you do the work, you build momentum and velocity over time.

In the beginning, it is a slow go, but over time, you will feel the velocity curve accelerate. 

You can do this.

When you understand this... you will win.

They key is- you must also be honest and live with high levels of integrity.

You have to have guts, courage, and a can-do spirit.

Never doubt yourself.

When you can combine all of this- that is the recipe.

Let's get working on this today...

Trust the process, do the work, then, let time to its job.

I also want to invite you to be a part of my CHAMPIONS-30 Health Reset & Weight-Loss Program...

I will be coaching you personally- and am so pumped for it!

We have only 3-spots left.. so if you want one of them, now is the time!

We start this Friday, April 15th!

Remember- when you do the work, you get the reward (over time).

Your Coach,
