“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” – Jim Rohn

Time is the most valuable thing you and I have.

How are you spending yours?

If you’re lucky, you spend the bulk of your time doing the things you love. If a lot of your time is spent doing things that don’t matter much to you, than this ONE bad habit may be to blame.

Are you someone who can’t help but say “YES” to everyone and everything, despite knowing that it is not what you want to do? And you KNOW that it’s not serving your highest potential.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Today I want to show you that breaking this habit is key to looking back on a life of happiness and fulfilment. Something that you deserve!

Screen-Shot-2015-10-19-at-3.07.03-PM

What if time were money. What if every minute was worth $1 (or $2, or $10, or even $50)? Would you be more careful about what and who you allow to take up your time?

If time is our most valuable commodity, shouldn’t we be even more concerned about it than money?

Money is just money after all, and you can always make a dollar back that you spend. But a moment of your life, once gone, is gone forever. There is no way to get it back.  

Screen-Shot-2015-10-19-at-3.08.24-PM

 

What have you said “yes” to recently that you are not passionate about? How much time will you now have to spend on something that deep down, you don’t really care about?

There are a lot of people who fall into the habit of saying “yes” to everything.

I use to be one of those people, so I get it.

I use to say “yes” to things over and over and over again. And you know what happened? I got so burnt out that I wasn’t able to keep up with it all. I would say yes to things but be unable to follow through on a lot of them. I started to seem flakey and insincere. In reality, I just didn’t have the capacity to do it all!

I don’t want that to happen to you.

From this day forward I want to encourage you to say “no” and honor your needs.

I want you to only say yes to the things…

  • that build you up
  • that make you feel fulfilled
  • that open you up and add love to your heart
  • that help you become who you want to be
  • that strengthen and help you grow in a positive way
  • that bring you joy

Because those are the things that will make life worth living!

Screen-Shot-2015-10-19-at-3.09.44-PM

Today, I’m giving you permission to say “no” to anything that doesn’t sit right with you.

And I beg of you – don’t feel bad about it!

Saying “no” doesn’t make you a bad person and it doesn’t mean you don’t care about something. It is simply a sign that you VALUE your time and RESPECT your true purpose and passion in life.

I want you to be able to stand in your power as the best version of who I know  already are within. Becoming the master of your time and heart is key to your destiny.

If you’re reading this then you’ve probably been saying “yes” too much lately. That’s okay! Because NOW you have the chance to break the habit and start living in a way that is more conducive to what will really bring you fulfilment and purpose in life.

Screen-Shot-2015-10-19-at-3.10.23-PM

It’s time to learn to say “no”, my friend. And to do it with power!

The more you say “no” to the things not serving you, the more time you have to say “yes” to the things that really light your soul on fire. And THAT is what life is all about.

Always remember, we’re in this together!

The Secret To Creating Abundance In Your Life – Mindset Monday

coaching banner

Get the mp3/podcast of this episode free on iTunes

Today I want to talk about a change in perspective that could drastically alter your life for the better.

First let me ask you this:

On any given day, are you focusing more on what the world is TAKING from you or on what you are GIVING to the world?

Think about it.

This little shift in thinking could have monumental effects on your success and happiness in life. And I’m not just saying that to sound dramatic. Let me rephrase it for you…

This little shift in thinking HAS had monumental effects on MY success and happiness! And it can have those same impacts in your life as well.

Screen-Shot-2015-10-12-at-9.17.51-AM

I’ve noticed that people tend to focus on what’s not showing up in their life. They see mostly what’s lacking, what they don’t have, what the world is trying to take from them.

Does this sound like you? Don’t worry – it use to be me, too.

What’s wrong with the kind of perspective? Well, when we understand the the Universe naturally sends us what we focus on the most, then what are we going to get if we focus on LACK?

That’s right, more lack. Because it’s all we will be able to see.

We tend to find what we are looking for, whether it be the blessings or the hardships. The faults or the redeeming qualities. The nasty stuff in the world or the beauty in the world. What the world is taking from us or what we are giving to the world.

Screen-Shot-2015-10-12-at-9.19.02-AM

My MOST POWERFUL MOMENTS in life have happened when I focused on the opposite of lack. When I focused on all the GOOD that was happening in my life and when I have tried to pack all the gratitude into one day that I possibly could. When I stopped being so worried about how much money I was making and instead on what I was giving to the people around me.

Screen-Shot-2015-10-12-at-9.20.58-AM

 

When you turn your attention to the positive, more will flood in.

Suddenly, you will find that new doors, experiences, opportunities and people will start pouring into your life in ways you couldn’t have imagined possible before.

But first… you have to get rid of the mentality that everyone is trying to take something from you.

taxes…

IRS…

car loans…

student loans…

traffic tickets…

your mother in law…

utilities….

fate…

When you feel like the world is constantly taking from you, you’ll be desperately pursuing more wealth in order to compensate.

Flip that.

Instead, focus on how much you get to give every single day.

Who you get to impact…
Who you get to inspire…
How many people you have to touch…
How many people you have to care about…
How big your family is…
How much love you can spread…

Screen-Shot-2015-10-12-at-9.22.16-AM

Are you ready to hear THE BIG SECRET OF LIFE?  

When you successfully change your perspective to focus on the GOOD in your life and what you can GIVE

… You will never have to worry about money ever again. Period.

Give it a try. Watch your tank fill up with joy, abundance and love in all areas of your life. And in the lives of those that you touch every day.

Always remember, we’re in this together!

5 Ways To Embrace Your Inner Child – Mindset Monday

coaching banner

Get the mp3/podcast of this episode free on iTunes

Kids are such wise and interesting little people. Don’t you just love spending time with them?  

The true joy of children is they are completely unaware of how inspiring they can be! They don’t intend to be teachers or mentors, but in reality, some of life’s most important lessons we can learn from spending time with a young child.  

I don’t have kids yet. But I’ve made a career out of what I think are the most important things for our youth to be learning. I would’ve loved to learn the things we teach on FitLife.tv when I was a kid. You’ll have to let me know how your own little ones feel about our videos. :)

Screen-Shot-2015-10-05-at-10.54.16-AM

I know a lot of you out there are moms and spend the bulk of your time with your own little ones. When you are with a child all day, although there may be incredible challenges, you gain great insight into the pleasures of life.

The purpose of this post is for all of us to take a minute and think about when we should be acting more like our little friends do.

As you and I grow and age, we experience a lot of ups and downs and it can be easy to be thrown off course, lose our perspective and lose our joy.

Many of us fall into patterns of depression and sadness and have a hard time pulling ourselves out.

What do you want? What lights your soul on fire? What are you passionate about?

Kids teach us something magical. They teach us to live, laugh and love and to to truly enjoy our time here in this life.

I’m going to share 5 times in life that it is absolutely okay to act like a child (no matter what age you are)!

I want to encourage you to act like a kid more! And don’t worry about what anybody thinks!

Screen-Shot-2015-10-05-at-10.55.14-AM

#1 Create Art

Do something that is creative! Let your inner artist shine! Pick up the paintbrush, the instrument, the hammer and nails… whatever it is that helps you get in the zone.

If you’ve seen my videos then you’ll know I’m a total nerd. I have a whole DJ set up in my house. Creating music is something that lights my fire and brings the child-like joy into my life.

#2 Prepare A Meal From Your Childhood

Doing things that we did as a child can help bring feelings of home, safety and innocence.

Pick a meal you enjoyed as a child and make it for yourself. You might have to dig up some of those old recipe cards from your mother!

While you prepare the meal, listen to music from your childhood. Research has shown that listening to music you heard as a kid helps with neurogenesis (the creation of new brain cells!), which in turn helps you stay young.

#3 Take a Bike Ride

Pull your bike out of the garage, pump up the tires and take it for a spin.

Screen-Shot-2015-10-05-at-10.55.47-AM

Try to see everything as if it’s the first time you’ve ever seen it before. The trees, the mountains, the buildings, the big sky… take a deep breath and let wonder fill your being.

Rediscover the bliss that comes as you fly down a hill with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face.  

#4 Play a Board Game

Some of the FitLife team does trivia night regularly and it is SO much fun. Playing games is an awesome way to interact with people in an engaging atmosphere.

Stop being an adult and going to happy hour at the bar. Instead, make some green juice and play monopoly. Or cards. Or charades. Or whatever. You can have an absolute blast as you let go of the need to be “adults” and get lost in a game together.  Especially one from your childhood that you LOVED.

#5 Watch An Old Movie

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? When I was a kid I thought those movies were the BEST and I had to see every single one when they came out. If I ever need to unwind, all I need is one of these movies, a green juice and I am good to go.

You CAN and you SHOULD enjoy your life as much as possible.

I think the key to that is embracing your inner child and remembering what it was like to see the world through those eyes.

Screen-Shot-2015-10-05-at-10.56.36-AM

As you do this…

New opportunities will start to open up to you.

New friendships will come your way.

Your days will brighten.

The world will be full of new colors.

Miracles will happen.

I can’t wait to hear all about it.

If you know someone who needs some light in their life, send them this video. Remind them of their inner child so that they can start to feel that joy again.

Always remember, we’re in this together!

The Habit I Find Extremely Attractive – Mindset Monday

coaching banner

Get the mp3/podcast of this episode free on iTunes

“The whole world opened to me when I learned to read.”

– Mary Mcleod Bethune

One of my favorite things to do is sit down with a glass of green juice and a good book.

I love reading just as much as I love juicing. Fuel for the mind, body and soul.  

Reading has always been a huge part of my life. It is something that has impacted me deeply and influenced who I’ve become as a person today as well as who I will be tomorrow.  

Screen-Shot-2015-09-28-at-3.11.57-PM

I read A LOT. Usually 2-3 books every single week.

There was one time in my life where I was absolutely broke. I had $71 in my bank account at the time and I found a book that I REALLY wanted that cost $20. I remember pulling out the money to pay for this book even though I didn’t know how I was going to replenish the funds.

But I trusted. I had faith that God would always deliver. The book was worth it to me.

No matter how much money you have or how broke you are, you will either be a reader or you won’t.

Nothing excites me more than when I meet someone for the first time and I ask them “What are you reading?” and they respond with something I’ve either read, or something to add to my running list.

When somebody is a reader like I am, that is the most attractive thing in the world.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-28-at-3.14.07-PM

“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on treasure island.”

– Walt Disney

Reading is something that I think EVERYONE should be doing EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Why?

I find that when I read, I evolve as a person. My perceptions and beliefs change and shift. I become a larger version of what I once was.

When I read, whether about Walt Disney or Steve Jobs or some of the greatest thinkers on the planet, it allows me to see a little piece of who they are. You can take someone’s whole life and condense it down into one book. At least most of the worthwhile parts – good and not so good.

“Reading is a way for me to expand my mind, open my

eyes and fill up my heart.”

– Oprah

The  point of this video and blog post is to help you think a little bit about who you are and what you could do regularly to add value and depth to your life.

I would highly recommend becoming an avid reader if you’re not already. You don’t have to read as many books as I do, but I believe that getting through one good book each month will do wonders for you and your growth and development as a human being.

Commit to an hour a night, or get something like audible and listen while you’re doing chores around the house or driving. It’s a great use of your time!

I promise that as you begin to read, your desire to read more will build into a ferocious appetite. You won’t be able to get enough.

If you ever come over to my house, remind me of my promise to give you one of my books. I love sharing my passion for expansion with others. Books hold a special place in my heart, as do you.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-28-at-3.15.23-PM

“I cannot live without books.”

~Thomas Jefferson

Even if you decide that reading isn’t for you, commit to doing something that will improve the overall balance of your life.

It could be writing in a journal.

Spending more time outdoors.

Learning how to meditate.

Picking up a new artistic skill.

Whatever it is…make space for it in your life. Choose to add more value to your everyday and you will look back on a life without regrets and with a great story to tell.

I’m grateful for you.

Always remember, we’re in this together!

Healing Through Dreams and the Power of Lucid Dreaming – Mindset Monday

coaching banner

Get the mp3/podcast of this episode free on iTunes

Were you brought into this world in less than ideal circumstances?

Have you ever found yourself wondering, “why me?”

We all come from different situations, circumstances, experiences, lifestyles… and we all have a choice as to where we end up.

Today I want to share a personal experience from my childhood and teach you a powerful tool for overcoming past trauma and stepping into a better future.

A future where YOU are in control and the master of your fate.

My Story

I was born into an abusive home.

I had young parents, misled by drugs who really didn’t understand what loving a child unconditionally meant. Looking back they probably were loving parents with good intentions but because of their own past or immaturity were not qualified to raise a child.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-21-at-3.27.37-PM

I wouldn’t go back and change my experience because it has helped become who I am today. But, it was very, very hard.

Often times our waking life is reflected in our subconscious at night in dream time. Our mind takes all the experiences of our day and compresses them into our dreams to help us process what is going on in life.

Some people have figured out how to “wake up” while they’re dreaming and realize that they are dreaming. This realization comes with the knowledge that they actually have power over their dreamspace.

When this happens it is called lucid dreaming.

I’ve never talked about this before because it is a little woo-woo for a lot of people.

Scientists have found that during a dream your entire brain becomes extremely active. Lots of research has been done on the possibility of lucid dreaming and the ability for someone to realize that they are dreaming during an actual dream.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-21-at-3.28.18-PM

Now, back to my story.

For 6 months straight, when I would sleep, a monster would attack me.

It was extremely terrifying. Every night I would wake up screaming and freaking out.

It was so real that during the day I would look at my hand and wonder if I was dreaming or not. If my hand changed, I would know I was dreaming. If it didn’t, I could take a deep breath and know that I was awake.  

Screen-Shot-2015-09-21-at-3.33.26-PM

Then one day something magical happened.

One night, before I went to bed, I asked myself if I was dreaming and I pinched myself before laying down. I fell asleep quickly, like I always do.

Half way through the night, the ugly monster was coming for me again.

At least 7 feet tall with horns coming out of it’s back and some real gnarly looking teeth… and the eyes were a bright oozing green.

This time was different though. Something had changed inside of me.

I looked at the monster, then I looked down at my hand and asked the question that every beginner lucid dreamer must ask…  

Is this real, or is this a dream?

I pinched myself and immediately knew that it was not real and in fact – I had entered one of the coolest worlds I would ever experience in my whole life.  

What happened to the monster next would change my confidence outside this realm forever.

Without a second to spare, I began running after the monster.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-21-at-3.41.26-PM

 

Instantly I imagined a sword falling from the sky and as I jumped at least 25 feet in the air, I called forth the power of the clouds to charge this sword with the fiercest lightning the world had ever seen.

It was me versus the monster.

The monster that was responsible for stealing my personal power at night and making me wake up even more miserable and hopeless during the daylight hours.

Plunging back towards the earth, as if I were a falcon with laser focus, I saw the ugly monster and had no fear to behead this nasty creature from the depths of hell.

As I approached it – I was 10 feet away and all of a sudden, the dream changed.

It was no longer a grown monster – it was a little baby.

My fear was gone. I no longer needed to attack this creature that was probably deep inside just as scared as I was. I looked into the eyes of a cute tiny little monster who wasn’t so tough after all.

I was able to let go and forgive all of the many nights we spent together. From that point on I knew I had control over the monster and my dreams and my nighttime was never the same.

Likened to this monster at night, I had to face my monster in the daytime…

My own father.

Having the confidence from the dream enabled me to take greater faith in the day. I felt like I had this invisible protection-shield around me.

The dream gave my subconscious mind a different perception of the waking time monster.

Eventually, this allowed me to gather up enough personal courage to face him.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-21-at-3.44.07-PM

I was still a young boy at the ages of 3-5 so there was no way physically I could stand up against him. However, I could avoid circumstances of getting hit more and help my younger sister so that she was more protected.

I didn’t have to be a victim.

Eventually my sister escaped and told the neighbors what was going on and the monster of the time got taken away where all monsters go.

Prison. For a really long time.

After some time in the foster care system, I was adopted by my parents who are some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met and whom I love dearly.

Lucid Dreaming

Lucid dreaming is a real tool that has been around for thousands of years.

Inventors, prophets, poets and some of the most creative people that ever lived were able to harness the power of their dreams.

It is truly one of the greatest worlds I have ever accessed.

So much so that I am now using them regularly to seek guidance as an entrepreneur who has built multiple million dollar companies.

IF in a dream we “wake up” and realize that we, in fact, have control over our experiences and what happens next…

Is it possible for us to do the same thing in our real, waking life?

Screen-Shot-2015-09-21-at-3.48.09-PM

Imagine coming to the realization that YOU are in control of your own destiny.

That with the power of your heart and mind, you could redirect the course of your life and stop being manipulated by society and all its expectations.

What would you do?

How would you live differently?

I want to encourage you to do what I did as a young child and what I still do every week…

Start asking yourself on a daily basis… AM I DREAMING?

If you ask yourself enough, eventually you will start asking the same question during the nighttime while you’re dreaming.

You will become aware of yourself on a whole new level in the dreamspace and eventually realize that YOU ARE IN COMMAND.

Once that happens… there’s no stopping you from becoming more powerful, more in control, more confident and more proactive in your dreams and in your real life.

Again, this is a tool that I use weekly. It has been a big block in my foundation for becoming who I am today.

I hope to hear from you soon. I want to know how lucid dreaming has impacted your life. What kinds of wild dreams are you having? Comment below… share with me!

The Parable Of The Donkey In The Well – Mindset Monday

coaching banner

Get the mp3/podcast of this episode free on iTunes

One day, a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well.

The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

Finally, he decided the animal was old, that the well needed to be covered anyway and that it just wasn’t worth retrieving the donkey.

So he invited all his neighbours to come over and help him.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-13-at-11.36.34-PM

They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.

At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.

Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quietened down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw.

With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing.

He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off!

 

How This Applies To You

People in the world are going to throw dirt on you. Sometimes for no good reason. No matter who you are or where you are or how awesome you are, this is a given. It’s life!

What matters is how you choose to react.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-13-at-11.38.11-PM

Do you just lay down and let people bury you under all their crap? Do you believe them when they say you’re not worth it?

Or do you shake it off and use their dirt as a staircase out of the dark and into the light of your full potential?

The lesson we can learn from the donkey today is this:

SHAKE IT OFF!

Shake it OFF of your back and continue to move on and upward.

It’s the person who is willing to try over and over again that always wins.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-13-at-11.42.42-PM

For those days where you are discouraged and wondering whether or not you are special and unique and have something to give to the world, there are a few people from history that I want you to remember.

Walt Disney, for instance, went into TONS of banks before he found someone who was willing to help him fund Disneyland. If he had given up after the first few tries, would Disney be the same as it is today? I doubt it.

How about Thomas Edison? His teachers said he was too stupid to learn anything and he became one of the most famous inventors in history. He failed thousands of times before he finally discovered the lightbulb.

Albert Einstein is another great example. One of the smartest guys in the world and his teachers wanted to hold him back because they thought he wasn’t smart! They called him slow compared to the other children. Just look how things turned out for him. People will be quoting Einstein and using his discoveries for centuries to come.

What do you have to give the world that people keep trying to cover up with all their junk?

I want to encourage you to shake it off and step up to be the person you were always meant to be.

The choice is yours, my friend.

Remember, we’re in this together!

“I can live for two months on a good compliment.” – Mark Twain

How do you react when someone gives you a compliment?

Are you able to acknowledge it, accept it gracefully and let it sink into your being?

Or do you feel awkward, like you have to shy away and feel unsure about the nice thing someone has said about you?

Screen-Shot-2015-09-07-at-2.53.26-PM

 

Today I want to teach you a principal that will help you move forward in life with more confidence, more gratitude and more joy every day.

It is time for you to start acknowledging yourself in a way that you can accept a compliment graciously when someone gives it to you, my friend.

Why?

Because when you choose to do the opposite, when you brush off or argue the compliments you receive, it is a symptom that you don’t believe in yourself.

You are doubting yourself.

A good friend recently told me this….

“Doubting yourself is doubting your creator.”

Screen-Shot-2015-09-07-at-2.55.23-PM

Think about that. Let that sink in for just a moment.

Doubting yourself is doubting your creator. When we doubt ourselves, we are doubting the bigger plan – our Source. When we doubt ourselves, we are denying our oneness with God, the Universe and the galaxies and believing that we are all alone and without destiny.

You were created for something bigger than you may even realize, my friend.

So as an outward expression of your desire to believe in yourself (and thus your creator), I want to challenge you to start accepting the compliments you receive.

Instead of responding to a compliment such as:

“Hey, you are doing such a good job and I want you to know that I really appreciate your hard work.”

With this:

  • “Oh, it’s nothing…”
  • “I’m sure anyone could do it…”
  • “Aw, you’re sweet but I’m not doing much…”
  • “Someday I’ll be good at it…”

Try responding with this:

  • “Thank you.”
  • “Thank you, I’ve really been putting a lot of work into it.”
  • “That means a lot to me. Thank you.”
  • “I really appreciate that! I’ve been wanting this to turn out well and it feels good to know you can see that.”

Start accepting compliments instead of pushing them aside and see how your life starts to change.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-07-at-3.05.25-PM

Maybe you’re someone who doesn’t get a lot of compliments. That’s okay! It’s not a reflection of your worth, trust me!

Some people are so busy living their own lives, they get wrapped up in it all without openly acknowledging others. We’ve all been there.

If you are one of those people that rarely gets compliments or open acknowledgements or praise, know that I think you’re amazing! I know you are working hard and I know that you have come such a long way. And I am really proud of you for being such an incredible example of love in this world.

Instead of letting this bother you, here is what I want you to do.

Take that energy and focus even more on giving compliments out to others. Spread all the love you have within you…

Screen-Shot-2015-09-07-at-3.06.44-PM

Don’t do it with the intent of receiving more, but pay attention to how people begin to acknowledge you.

The more good you choose to see in someone else’s life, the more you will start to see in your own. When you start to focus on the good around and when you choose to acknowledge it, the same thing is going to come right back to you.

Call it karma if you want. :)

The truth is, giving is the best way to begin receiving.

Don’t just take my word for it! Apply this principle in your life, then come back and tell me what you find.

The Challenge

Give out at least 5 sincere compliments every day.

Make sure they are sincere and that you mean them. Notice the good in those around you. They might not accept compliments as gracefully as you at first, but soon they will catch on.

It’s time to raise the vibration of our lives. It’s time to set an example of greatness, something that we all have within us. Something I know you have so much of… and the world needs more love, my friend.

Remember, we’re in this together.

Using Your Subconscious Mind To Lose Weight – Mindset Monday

coaching banner

Get the mp3/podcast of this episode free on iTunes

“It is psychological law that whatever we desire to accomplish we must impress upon the subjective or subconscious mind.” – Orison Swett Marden

Today I want to teach you how to harness your subconscious mind in order to maximize your ability to lose weight.

Your subconscious mind controls a surprisingly large portion of your life. Most people think that willpower (which is a conscious effort) is what it takes to lose weight. But the truth is, the way you think all the time PROGRAMS the subconscious mind, which then dictates 90-97% of what you do and accomplish on a normal day.

Screen-Shot-2015-08-31-at-12.45.56-PM

For example, maybe you are trying to make more money. But instead of focusing on abundance, you are focusing on what you don’t have. You are focusing on LACK. Maybe you grew up being taught that money is something negative that is full of frustration and you grew up feeling like you never had enough.

Because of this programing you are always focusing on the lack of money instead of the abundance of money. Because you’re focusing on lack, you keep attracting more lack.

This type of thinking is why so many people fail at weight loss and other goals. Although they are summing up all the willpower they can muster to accomplish their goals and working hard, their subconscious mind is sabotaging their efforts because of how they’ve programed it to think.

Sounds complicated, but don’t worry – it is actually very simple.

It’s all about WHAT you are focusing on.

Once you understand what I’m about to teach you, you’ll be able to attract exactly the kinds of results you want.

This doesn’t only apply to weight loss and finances. Once you understand this principle, you can apply it in all areas of your life and how you think.

Why It’s Counter-Productive To Focus On Losing Body Fat

Screen-Shot-2015-08-31-at-12.49.37-PM

When most people go into any exercise/diet routine, they focus on body fat percentage.

Body fat percentage is the total amount of body fat in a living organism divided by the total body mass.

For a male who is in good shape, it should be somewhere between 8% and 12%.

For a female who is in really good shape, it should be around 15%-20%.

Women are built differently than men. Their bodies are created to bring life into the world and they need a little more body fat than men. This doesn’t mean women look fatter than men – they are just composed a little bit differently. Every body is beautiful and unique.

The problem with focusing on body fat is that you are constantly thinking about something that you DON’T WANT.

Let me explain…

Your mind and the universe doesn’t pay attention to the details of whether you want something or don’t want it – it just sees that you are focusing on it. And you ATTRACT whatever you think about and FOCUS on the most.

If you’re focused on losing your body fat or losing weight or not getting fat or not feeling awkward, you are just attracting more of those things – because those are the things you’re thinking about.

Focus On What You Want, Not What You Don’t Want.

The big shift happened for me when I stopped focusing on my body fat percentage and I started focusing on what I actually wanted:

LEAN MUSCLE MASS.

Screen-Shot-2015-08-31-at-12.50.38-PM

Instead of focusing on body fat (which I wanted to lose) I focused on lean muscle mass (which is something I wanted to GAIN) and since we attract what we focus on the most, I began gaining lean muscle, which naturally burned more fat and allowed for the space to attain what I really wanted, which was to be in better shape.

It’s the same desired outcome, just a shift in focus.

You know how when you were in driver’s ed and they taught you to look ahead at the road (aka where you wanted to go) and to avoid staring at the car next to you or the meridian in fear of hitting it? This is the same concept.

When you’re driving, you naturally gravitate towards where your focus is. If you drove while staring at all the things you DIDN’T want to hit, you would be much more likely to hit them than if you just focused on the road ahead!

Right now I am about 195 pounds and 180 pounds of lean muscle. It took hard work, dedication and commitment to get where I am and I am still striving to grow stronger and faster every day. This has become my new lifestyle… but it wasn’t always this way.

The average pound of muscle in your body burns at least 6-10 calories each day on autopilot, doing absolutely nothing. This means I burn about 1,400-1,800 calories each day without even trying because of the way I have trained my body to work with and for me based on my lifestyle.

If you’re a woman OR a man, you should try focusing on lean muscle mass instead of body fat.

Focus on what you WANT.

Screen-Shot-2015-08-31-at-12.51.25-PM

Whatever it is that you want in life, be it a healthy body, loving relationships, good looks, people skills, abundance, etc… spend your time focusing on those things instead of on their opposites.

Focus on the things you want to GAIN, the ones you want to ATTRACT. Not the things you don’t.

I know it can be challenging, but I also know it’s possible and once you master this shift, your whole world has the potential to change for the better.

I want that for you, my friend. And I know you do too!

Let me know in the comments below how this shift in perspective has changed your life!

Always remember, we’re in this together!

7 Ways To Fight Depression – Mindset Monday

coaching banner

mindset

Get the mp3/podcast of this episode free on iTunes.

A friend on facebook recently asked me this question:

How do you fight against depression?

Depression is tough, my friend. I am sorry that you or someone you love is wading through dark times. Whether it be a short term depression due to life circumstances or a life-long chronic disease, depression is never fun.

I would like to start off by saying that I’m not a doctor. If you are suffering from something more than “the blues” and need help, I would highly recommend going to see a qualified physician. They can get you the medical help you may need and help dig into the root cause of the feelings you’re experiencing.

That being said, I have dealt with depression a few times in my life. Yep, it’s true! Luckily, I have never been chronically depressed; my dark times have come and gone without the persistent heavy feelings that I know some of you face.

But I do know what it is like to spend days, weeks or even a few months feeling low and unsure of how to get back to happier days.

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 3.16.15 PM

Again, I’m no doctor, but I have learned a thing or two, which have really helped me pull through the tough days. I’d like to share them with you now and I hope that some of these things can help you on your journey to taking back your life and feeling like your happy-self again soon.

#1 Change Your Language

Look again at how my friend phrased his question: How do you fight against depression?

Anytime we “fight” against something, it causes resistance on a cellular level. When we look at something as a battle, we naturally become tense and enter “fight or flight” mode and constantly feel like we’re in a war zone.

When we use this type of language we attract tensity, tightness and more restriction.

Instead of phrasing this phase of your life as “fighting against,” I encourage you to choose your words carefully and mindfully.

It’s been shown that we can actually speak and think things into our reality. I am not saying it happens overnight, but with practice, you can begin to shift your perspective of the situation. This goes for anything in your life.

Try replacing “fight” with one of the following and see how it feels for you:

Living with…

Working through…

Facing…

Dealing with…

Navigating through…

Mitigating (as in healing)…

Unraveling…

Undertaking…

You are a warrior and I want you to know that regardless of your current situation – where you are in your life and how you’re feeling – you’re not alone!

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 3.19.06 PM

Release Exercise: Hold your fist as tight as you can. Take a big, deep breath. When you release the breath, slowly release all the tension in your hand. Repeat this as many times as you need to in order to feel a sense of calm and peace.

#2 Look At Your Gut Biome

Serotonin, which is one of the hormones that makes you feel happy, is synthesized primarily in your GUT (up to 90%!). It only makes sense that in order for you to feel happy, stable and functioning properly, your gut needs to be in good shape!

You can get a stool test from a qualified physician to see what kind of havoc may be going on in your gut. They can also tell if you’re making enough serotonin there or not. There are also a lot of things you can do on your own in order to get things running smoothly, like:

  • Eat gut-building foods (see #5 below!)
  • Take daily probiotics
  • Eat more fermented foods (yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, natto, miso, kombucha, etc)

I would also check to see if any medications you are taking could be messing with your intestines. You can usually read about that online (from RELIABLE sources) or ask your doctor. Some medications also state depression as a side effect so just be sure you are aware of what you are putting in your body.

#3 Do Things To Increase Happy Hormones

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 3.20.22 PM

Most doctors believe that if you are depressed, there is something going on with your neurotransmitters and happy hormones. If your hormones are out of whack, it can feel like you’re living with sunglasses on and never seeing the full colors of life.

One of my favorite books about these happy hormones and how you can get them working FOR you is called Meet Your Happy Chemicals by Loretta Graziano. Most of us on the FitLife team have read it and enjoyed it immensely. In this book, Loretta explains all of our “happy chemicals” and describes how to build new neuropathways that will help to boost these chemicals and help us feel more balanced and happy overall.

There’s a lot of information on the subject and I encourage you to dig into this if in fact you are dealing with any sort of hormonal imbalance. For many, there are natural remedies you can adopt and adapt into your day to day lifestyle to help.

#4 Exercise

Exercise is an awesome way to boost your endorphin levels and leave you feeling satisfied and content! I know sometimes that last thing you want to do when depressed is run around the block or lift some weights but trust me, it is one of THE best things you could do.

Studies have shown that people who exercise regularly are less likely to experience depression and anxiety in the long run.

Working out doesn’t have to mean doing something you don’t like to do. Find what works for you and make a habit! The possibilities are endless. Sports, weight lifting, running, hiking, biking, horseback riding… the sky’s the limit here.  Restorative yoga is not only great for the mind, but your entire body too. Try something new!

#5 Eat For Your Gut Health

When we are depressed it is easy to reach for comfort foods because they give us a quick dopamine rush. The problem is that most of our “comfort foods” have low energy and low nutritional value and may even do more harm than good in the long run.

Avoid typical comfort foods. Try some of these instead that will help you FEEL good as a whole being and not just help you for a moment.

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 3.21.14 PM

A lot of people really don’t realize it, but your mood is tied directly to what you put in your mouth!

#6 Fill Your Cup With Positivity

Imagine that I’m holding a cup full of water that has dirt sitting at the bottom. How would I get that dirt out? Would I scoop it out with a spoon? Try to reach in there with my hand? No.

I would just keep filling the cup up (overflowing) with clean, fresh water until eventually all the dirt washed over the edges and I was left with a glass of clear water.

This analogy works the same way in your life. You can’t always get the dirt out of your life by focusing on it and trying to make it leave. Instead, try to fill your life with things that are clean, pure, fresh and beautiful. Eventually there will simply not be enough room for the dirt to hang around.

#7 Remove Yourself From Low Vibrations

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 3.21.59 PM

Depression is a low vibrational realm. In order to overcome it, you’ve got to pull yourself up the chart and into higher vibrations.

Similarly to filling your life with positivity, you’ve got to start actively pursuing a high-frequency life.

Bring things into your day-to-day like meditation, studying spiritual words, poetry, learning to play a new instrument, yoga, dance, relaxation, listening to restful tones and sounds, spending time with people who are obviously high vibration, being out in the sun, earthing, etc.

The more you strive to fill your time with high-frequency activities, the better you will feel and the higher your own vibration will become.

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 3.26.01 PM

There may be times in your life when this kind of stuff isn’t enough to pull you out of the fog. In that case I would recommend you find someone who can help you like a trusted physician.

But for most of the dark times in life, these techniques can be quite effective. Use these in your life and also take time to contemplate your own existence and self worth, remembering that your light is glorious beyond that of all the stars in the sky.

You are a child of the Universe.

You are strong.

You are capable.

And you WILL get through this. I know you can.

Always remember, we’re in this together!

Your Most Important Battle – Mindset Monday

coaching banner

mindset

Get the mp3/podcast of this episode free on iTunes.

Today I want to talk to you about one of the most important battles you will ever go through in your whole life.

I’m going to challenge you to take on this battle head on, starting right now.

Not only will it be the hardest battle you will ever fight for yourself, it will be the most important. Not just for you, but for everyone else around you too.

This one battle has the potential, whether won or lost, to set you on a drastically different course for the rest of your life.

The Challenge…

What if you decided to fully accept yourself? In all of your perfectly imperfect glory.

What if right now, you walked up to the mirror, gazed deeply into your own eyes and told yourself:

I love and accept you completely, just as you are, without conditions.

… and what if you said this so many times that eventually, you started to truly believe it?

I want you to take a moment and think about this. Even if you only intended to skim through this article quickly, stop for a moment and just take a breath.

Consider it.

Imagine the person you would be if you believed in yourself. Not only that, but loved yourself deeply. Cared about who you are at your core, the deepest level of your being and lived in a way that honored and respected that.

Would anything in your life change?

Screen Shot 2015-08-16 at 10.00.56 PM

To completely love and accept yourself would mean you embrace your whole being without reservation and without setting terms.

Complete and total acceptance. No conditions attached.

This is a rare trait to find in anyone these days. But I would be willing to bet that the people you look up to most and want to be like… they’ve probably fought the battle of self-acceptance and won.

To completely love yourself would mean to deeply care about who you are with no restrictions, no doubts and no self limiting beliefs. Is it really possible?

In a world where we have to much to live up to, so many big dreams, so many people to compete against… is it really possible to let that all go and just embrace our own individual souls?

I am here to tell you that I KNOW it is, because I have done it myself. And ever since I started winning this battle, my world has changed for the better.

If you, too, decide to start winning this battle, it will radically transform your life.

It’s time for you to:

  • See yourself differently
  • Treat yourself differently
  • Talk to yourself kindly
  • Embrace your imperfections like you would a child’s
  • Feel more love and acceptance towards yourself and others
  • … and see your world start to change.  

The Beginning Of Self-Acceptance

Screen Shot 2015-08-16 at 10.04.04 PM

 

Many psychologists believe that our level of self-acceptance directly correlates with how we were accepted by our parents and other authority figures.

Children look to their parents to provide acceptance before they begin to start forming opinions about themselves.

If the message they receive is positive, they’re more likely to grow up accepting themselves versus children who grow up being told that they’re not “good enough.”

Even if you weren’t raised in a loving home, your feeling of self-worth isn’t set in stone. Once you recognize that you may have a hard time loving yourself because of the vibe you got from your parents, you can take steps to heal and let go of those old beliefs and make room for new ones.

 

It Is Time For You To Understand…

Your existence on this planet is not by accident.

You are here for a purpose.

You are here to make a difference in the lives of others.

You are here to radiate love and light the path of hope, courage and possibility for others.

It’s time for you to release those old, stagnant beliefs and recognize that YOU are a child of God, The Universe, The Divine – whatever you choose to believe in.

To change your perception, you have got to decide that you’re worth it – and you are!

Here are a few easy steps to get you started.

#1 Begin every single day by looking in the mirror and saying, “I love you and I accept you completely.”

Screen Shot 2015-08-16 at 10.04.51 PM

Feel what it feels like to be in love with yourself!

The things we say to ourselves have a lot of power in molding our beliefs and self-set limitations (or lack of). Starting off your day by sincerely and earnestly expressing your own love and acceptance of yourself can go a long way in changing the way you see yourself as a human being.

A good way to start doing this is, when you look in the mirror, envision someone you really care about. Look into their eyes and feel what it feels like to care about them deeply. Over time, this will begin to shift as you continue seeing yourself in the mirror and you can become to understand what it feels like to love YOURSELF in the same way.

#2 Eliminate negative self-talk

Analyze what you’re saying about yourself. Really LISTEN to what you are saying in your head. Your thoughts have the power to build you up, empower you and sustain you. They also have the power to slowly destroy your confidence and feeling of self-worth.  

Stop telling yourself that you aren’t good enough – smart enough – attractive enough.

These are LIES, built on the false beliefs of others hurting… possibly the way that YOU are hurting now.

Eliminate anything that isn’t serving your highest good. Some of you may have to do a LOT of work with how you think. Some of you may only have to change a few things.

Remember, the thoughts we think over and over again build neural pathways in our brain. The more you think something, the more likely you are to think it again. It’s like creating a physical pathway in the woods. The more you walk down in, the more likely it is you will walk down it next time because you’ve already created a trail.

When you start thinking new, empowering thoughts about yourself, it may be like walking through overgrowth at first and will not be easy. But the more you think these things, the easier it will become until finally your negative thought pathways begin to be overgrown with weeds and your positive ones will be clear and easy to stroll down.  

Develop a relationship with yourself full of love, kindness and positive talk.

But don’t just speak it.

Feel it.

Believe it.

#3 Forgive yourself

I don’t know anything about your past. I don’t know what have happened that is causing you to carry around this burden of guilt day to day.

I DO know that guilt is one of the lowest frequencies on a vibrational scale that a human being can carry around in their life.

It causes depression, disease, an imbalance in relationships and creates a monster that is hard to beat when you are trying to learn to love yourself.  

Screen Shot 2015-08-16 at 10.06.00 PM

To get rid of this monster, you have to FORGIVE YOURSELF. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done. You have to learn to let go so that you can be fully here in the now. The past doesn’t exist anymore. All you’ve got is right now.

Forgive them.

Forgive yourself.

Accept your imperfections. They make you who you are. You are perfectly imperfect. We all are.

My friend, I love you.

You are incredible.

You are beautiful and powerful and magnificent.

Stop setting limitations on how you feel about yourself.

Instead, COMMIT today to LOVE AND ACCEPT YOURSELF COMPLETELY.

It may be the hardest battle you ever fight.

It is also the most important.
