Always go for it in your life.

Keep on stepping this week. Q2 ends on Sunday July 2nd.

Final quote for Quarter 2:

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that.
Because what the world really needs are for people to come alive.”

Until next time!

~ Keep on being awesome.

Identity → Behavior → Feelings.

Happy Monday Endomondo All Stars!

We are in week 11 so we are almost to the end.

You all are an amazing group of people!  Keep on being awesome.  Keep on getting your exercise in.  Keep on doing things that make your day better and make you feel your healthiest and best.

With that in mind take a look at this thought of the day from Brian Johnson at

Continuing on our theme of feelings following behavior, let’s chat about some wisdom from Eric Greitens.

Eric is a fascinating guy. Rhodes Scholar-humanitarian turned Navy SEAL. He wrote a great book called Resilience which is a collection of letters he and another SEAL exchanged after his buddy went through some hard times.

One of the great ideas Eric shares in that book is today’s +1.

Eric tells his friend that most people base their behavior on how they feel which then drives their sense of self.

He tells us that’s totally backwards.

Rather than Feelings → Behavior → Identity in which our feelings drive the show we want to orient from a model where our strong sense of self drives the whole show.

Like this: Identity → Behavior → Feelings.

We have a clear sense of who we’re committed to being. That’s our “Identity.” THAT determines what we do. NOT how we feel.

So, maybe you’re committed to being a disciplined, committed creative artist or entrepreneur. Fantastic. ACT LIKE ONE. (Whether you feel like it or not.)

Or maybe you’re committed to being an exemplary husband or father (or wife or mother). Fantastic. ACT LIKE ONE. (Whether you feel like it or not.)

Or maybe you’re committed to being a world-class athlete. Fantastic. ACT LIKE ONE. (Whether you feel like it or not.)

Identity → Behavior → Feelings.


Who are YOU committed to being?

In those micro-moments that determine your destiny today, ACT LIKE that best version of you!!

Affirmation of the day:  I’m going to drink water, eat fruit and vegetables, walk, take the stairs, exercise. Today I’m giving love to my body.









There are two ways to live your life…

There are two ways to live your life…
Happy Monday Wellness Champions!

How are you today?
Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.”
Today is a great and amazing day to be alive.
Every breathe we take in, every moment we live and that we are alive, everything we see, hear, taste, feel and touch today is a miracle.
Happy Monday!
I hope your day is a big bowl of awesome sauce!
