Hi Team...

Hope you had a great weekend!

You know, yesterday I was doing a very unique workout...

One that was focused on "movement"....

Hopping, Skipping, Jumping, Bounding, Crawling, Pushing Up, Rolling...

Coach, what are you a gymnast?

Well, to be honest, in some ways yesterday I was .....

And that is what got me thinking...

When was the last time you moved like that?

Went back to some movement patterns that you have not performed in years?

When was the last time you challenged your body that an old pattern felt new again?

I bring this up because your brain works the same way...

When you are not challenging the brain....

It becomes old, tired, and expired...

Your thoughts become old and sluggish... and opposed to fresh, exciting and vibrant!

Remember when you were a kid? It felt like you were always learning...

Or, when you were in college.. or just graduating... or even when you were getting your first job or starting your own business...

Very exciting!

Fresh thinking....

Excited for a challenge...

How exciting...

That is growth my friends...

That is a growth mindset!

That is what we need right now if we are going to take on 2020 and finish with a win!

Do something new today...

Or, do something old you have not done in a while.. it will get you moving in a new direction!

Let's go!

You got this!

Your Coach,


Speaking of new and fresh.. 

This is a MUST Listen to Show I did with The Benham Brothers.
