Take Care Of Each Other.

Take care of each other.

The US Navy Seals are one of the most elite warriors in the world and one of the Seals was asked.
What is the type of person that becomes a Seal?
I can’t tell you the kind of person that becomes a Seal,
I can’t tell you the type of person that makes it through BUDS,
But I can tell you the kind of people that don’t become seals.
The guys that show up with huge bulging muscles,
who show up with tatoos and want to prove to the world how tough that they are.
None of them make it through.
The leaders who like to delegate their responsibility and never do anything themselves,
None of them make it through.
He said the star college athletes,
who have never really been tested to the core of their being.
None of them make it through.
He says that some of the guys that make it through are skinny and scrawny,
He said that some of the guys that make it through,
You will see them shivering out of fear.
He says however,
all the guys that make it through,
when they find themselves physically spent,
emotionally spent.
They have nothing left to give physically or emotionally,
somehow, some way they are able to find the energy to dig
deep down inside themselves to help the guy next to them.
They become seals he said,
You want to be an elite warrior,
It’s not about how tough that you are.
It’s not about how smart that you are.
It’s not about how fast that you are.
If you want to be an elite warrior,
you better get really good,
at helping the person to the left of you,
and helping the person to the right of you.
Because that’s how people advance in the world.

If you want to receive help, start by helping others.

Inspiration At This Time.

Just a little piece of inspiration at this time.

Before in April 1954.
The belief was, the universal belief.
It had been tried again and again by people that failed.
The belief was that man was not physically capable.
Of breaking the four minute barrier.
That he could not run a mile in less than four minutes.
That was the planets belief.
It had never been done.
But guess what, here is what happened.
A Roger Bannister came along and he broke the four minute barrier.
What is significant about that?
Up to what i know, a thousands of people have done it, including high school kids.
What changed those thousands of people?
What happened was, when they got in the track, they knew it had been done.
Because they knew it had been done.
There was a new belief about this barrier.
About this goal that was unreachable.
These people in their heart, knowing someone had done it, it was possible.
They could do it.
So you know, if someone has done this goal.
You can do it.
You can make this dream a reality.
As you look at where you want to go.
Embrace, that it is possible.

7 Essential Tips to Make 2020 Your Best Year Ever.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.

As I reflected on this past year, I realised that 2019 has been perhaps my best year ever. It’s funny, because that’s what I thought about 2018, but my years seem to be getting better and better.

And so I reflected on what made these past two years, so great, and how I could leverage these successes for even further improvement. I’d like to share some things I’ve learned about the past two years and how you might be able to use them to make this next year your best yet.

1. One goal.

This will sound mad to many of you who have so many goals you’d like to accomplish. And trust me, I know how that feels. I started out 2019 with a whole bunch of goals, but I came to realise that I had to concentrate on one goal at a time. If you start yourself off with so many you will spread your energy and focus across them thinly.
But if you have one goal, you’ll be able to focus your energy and attention completely on that one goal and that’s an ingredient to succeeding.
You might have a number of goals to achieve in your lifetime. If so, choose just one to accomplish this year, and focus on that.
You might have shorter-term sub-goals to achieve in a month or two, but those should lead to your one goal for 2020.
Put your goal on your wall, on your computer desktop. Make it your mantra. Keep it your focus for 2020, and you’ll not only achieve it, but you’ll feel great for doing so.

2. Create a new habit.

In 2001, when my goal was to recover and become stronger, I built up the daily habit of training back in the gym. That habit led to my goal. When my goal was to raise money for H4H in 2017 (H4H Everest Trek), I develop the daily habit of asking for sponsorship. Goals are achieved by habits. What habit can you develop this month to help achieve your one goal for this year?

Once you’ve identified that goal, you’ll need to commit yourself, hold yourself accountable to a group of people, and focus completely on that habit for a month.

The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. – Chinese Proverb

3. Take action now.

It’s all good and well to set goals or resolutions, but the best plans are worthless if you don’t act on them. Action is everything. Take action today to make your goal come true. Tomorrow, take another action. In fact, take one action toward your one goal every day, first thing in the day, and make it the most important thing you do every day. If you do that, there’s almost no way that you won’t achieve that goal.

The actions can be small things: making a list, making a call, doing some research.
But take action.

4. Simplify.

If you take the time to simplify your life, in some way, this month, your year will be much better. When we have too much going on in our lives, it overwhelms us. It spreads us thin. It makes us ineffective. Simplifying things helps keep us calm, and makes us more powerful. Take some time to identify the 4-5 things that are most important in your life, then simplify your commitments (and goals and to-do list) so that they fall in line with those 4-5 priorities.

5. Focus on happiness.

If you make your happiness become your focus, you’ll be happier. It’s really that simple (or at least, it has been for me). What makes you happy? That should be the focus of your life. This year, make happiness be your priority. Then do the things necessary to make it a reality.

6. Schedule time for you, and your loved ones.

For me, that’s my wife and family, plus exercise, and reading and writing. Actually, that sentence describes my entire short list: spend time with family, read, write, and lift weights.

Spending time with yourself, doing something you love to do, will give you time for reflection. It will make you happier, and give you time to decompress. Don’t have time? Make time.

Spending time with loved ones, connecting with them, is in my opinion absolutely essential to happiness. Make it a priority.

7. Learn to focus.

This goes back to what was said above about one goal and simplifying, but it’s important not only on those macro levels, but on a day-to-day basis as well. It’s easy to get caught up in things that come our way, in the daily crises that derail our plans, in distractions and email and phone calls and Social Media. Very easy. If you allow yourself to lose focus, you’ll have a very difficult time accomplishing your goals.

When you’re done, take a break and reward yourself. Then focus on the next task.
