New Year, New Habits

​As we enter into the New Year of 2020 I encourage you all to reflect on your nutritional choices of 2019. What did you do well? What is an area of improvement that you need to devote more focus to in 2020? What is one action step that you are going to commit to doing to take your health to the next level? ​ During the Nutrition Workshop I hosted a couple a weeks ago we went over reasons people fail in their nutrition and I wanted to bring that up here so we know how to be on guard as we plan for better nutrition. Reasons people fail: Lack of knowledge (way they were brought up, believe what the industry has said about nutrition) Laziness (does not make time for learning, looking up healthy

Is The Door Open For You?

Ready Fire Aim Read that again​! That is right! ​ Ready Fire Aim Maybe 2020 is going to be an amazing year for you... Maybe you are going to take on new challenges... Maybe you are going to take your health and nutrition to the next level... Maybe you are going to hold yourself accountable to what you really want out of yourself this year... Maybe is always great but the difference from saying "I wish I", or "it would have been great if", blah blah blah is ACTION! Firing even before you have taken aim. If you are like me waiting for the perfect time to start a new diet, try a new workout program, read a new book, or do anything that requires an action from yourself is next to impossible. We

Dealing With Success Like a Champion

I’ve actually never heard anyone talk about how to help student-athletes handle success. I’ve never heard anyone address the dangerous pitfalls that many kids face when they step into the spotlight at a young age. That is why I want to give you a huge early Christmas gift- more on that below. ​ I’ve also never heard anyone talk about why it is that some kids have the potential to be successful but CHOOSE not too because of a mental block that they have up and do not even know it! The Truth is that dealing with success is NOT Easy. Everyone thinks life will be easier when they are successful. Every athlete thinks life is a breeze for the athletes who are “winning”. Tell that to the 14 year ol

IF...

IF ​we ​Actively ​go against the current and choose to care more about our kids mental and emotional well-being, they ​will ​perform better on the field and in the classroom (won't burnout along the way either).​ ​IF​ we ​Refrain ​​from​ the pre-game reminders/bribes/expectations, yelling during games, and igniting unnecessary disputes with our kids after games, ​we will all be happier​ and relationships will be better. ​IF we ​Invest ​more time in reading articles, books, and watching videos about how to be better leaders for our student-athletes, everything will get better (because everything rises and falls on the leader- families, teams, organizations)​ ​IF​ ​we Stop caring what other pa

PRESS ON

I was reflecting the other day, I remembered when I wrote about a message to a group of middle school aged kids at church a couple months ago, I was teaching them about why it is always important to PRESS ON no matter what life throws at you! It made me really think about the power of owning where you are and taking the daily choices to continue to work toward your goals or desired end result. A lot of people have said some extremely kind things about how I have been a motivator and inspiration to them with how I have stayed so positive. It feels great to be able to help people stay optimistic and continue to press on even when it gets hard or doesn't go your way. However, I don't want the f

Tony Dungy: 3 Points on Athletics

I am a huge Tony Dungy fan. Probably because he believes what we believe about the best way to help young men and women to reach their full potential on and off the field. Check out 3 points he makes about sports: 1. “Today’s peer pressure within our society toward athletic achievement is extreme. We see it when children are pushed to compete in sports. We see it in the overzealous Little League parents and sometimes coaches who have lost all touch with reality. The kids are being pushed and coached like adults, with the idea that they have to be the best players on their teams so they can go to “the next level”. 2. We are in a society that idolizes sports [just look at the fathers and husba
