Hi Team...

I have to say, over the last few weeks I have found a lot of people to be feeling stress.

From clients to those who I encounter... they are feeling stressed.

Today, I wanted to talk about a few of the reasons WHY many feel stressed- and it really boils down to 4-reasons.....

  1. Trying to do too much.
  2. Trying to do too much too fast.
  3. Trying to do everything yourself.
  4. The unknown.

These, in combination, or in isolation are always the root causes of stress.

So, since most who read this are thinkers, the next time you feel a bout of stress coming on, or you are in a storm of it, take a few seconds and ask yourself the following questions....

  1. Am I trying to do too much?
  2. Am I trying to do too much too fast?
  3. Am I trying to do everything myself?
  4. Am I too focused on or in fear of the unknown in this moment?

You will find yourself answering YES to one of more of these questions.

Yesterday, I was talking to a good friend of mine, Ray Nelson and we were talking about how most people are living a life by default- doing everything they do for safety and security at the cost of never living.....

Gotta built my savings....

Gotta make X- money....

Gotta invest this much per month....

Gotta make X- amount of sales calls per day....

Gotta raise X- money so I can start my business....

Gotta sell my business...

Gotta is a disease of the soul....

It will cost you life.

It will cost you from truly just having uninhibited fun and enjoyment....

I want to remind you of this: YOUR LIFE IS SHORT

Make it amazing...

Everyday, wake-up and say: This day is going to be amazing because I choose for it to be that way.

These are some of the lessons we were taught by Dr. Shad a few weeks ago.

How we see things and how we communicate to ourselves is essential for long term success....and vitality.

This is a very important reminder.


Go big on your life.

Do not let the self-induced pressure take you down and out of your own game.

When you do this- you will win.

I promise.

Your life will change.

Go change your life.

Your Coach,
