Episode 91: Eight Lessons I've Learned
Eight Lessons I've Learned In the week's episode, I discuss the eight lessons Iโ€™ve learned during my time as a life and transformation coach.ย  1. There is tremendous variability in individual responses to change. Some clients need to work twice as hard to get half the results. This is not fair, but it's reality.ย  2. Many know what to do, but fail to execute. Being accountable to a coach, and having an objective eye helps them go from average to excellent.ย  I think it's essential to define the word "objective" ~ not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts. 3. It's tough to predict success because it based on 90% mindset and 10% talent. You don't know where a client falls in that equation until they are faced with adversity.ย  4. Effort trumps talent in the end. I will always place my bet on effort. Talent gets bored and complacent. Effort always has something to prove.ย  5. Many overestimate the importance of the perfect plan and underestimate the importance of brutal consistency. I'll take the 80% plan for ten years, over the 100% plan you anguish over, neverย figure out, and never start.ย  6. Twenty-five years in the weight loss and fitness world has taught me this:ย  Intelligent people can often be their own worst enemy. They know just enough about a lot of things to make them dangerous. For example, they will go to extreme measures to find a hack or cuttingย edge idea that makes them feel like they have outsmarted the system. When in actuality, all they are doing is avoiding the boring, dull, challenging, yet highly effective BASICS that actually work.ย  Reminder: It is the commitment and consistency to the daily routine that yields the win. (Little Hinges Swing Big Doors) 7. The #1 transformation progress killer is anxiety/stress. It leads to questioning the plan and eventually quitting it altogether. The best advice for diminishing anxiety and stress is to avoid focusing on deceptive short term results, such as scale weight, bullshit bio-impedance body-fat scales and scans, and other people'sย highlight reels.ย  Focus instead on precision in the DAILY process: tracking/measuring food, movement, mindset and sleep duration, and quality. Point being, you achieve remarkable LONG TERM results by nailing the DAILY process. 8. Striving for balance is admirable, but don't be surprised when your progress is eclipsed by those who don't give a shit about balance.

Episode 89: One Yard Short
One Yard Shortย  It was 29 years ago, and I remember it like it was yesterday. I remember the exact spot of the field. We are going into the East end zone.ย  I can still smell that unique odor that you'll only know if you've worn a helmet and shoulder pads. It's more of the smells that to the average person is gross, but to those that know, it's the smell of hard work and dedication.ย  Cisco 20 ~ Merkel 21 The excitement was building as our coach decided to go for the win instead of the tie.ย  "We are going for two boys. Let's win this thing." I was excited as I had just scored my third touchdown of the game to bring us one play away from the victory.ย  I can hear the band firing up the fight song.ย  ย  ย I know it's all come down to me.ย  I can hear Coach Evatt call the play as we all gathered on the sidelines, ready to win.ย  "36 Belly G Keep" Wait. WHAT did he say keep. Keep meant that they would fake the handoff to me, and Jeff, the QB, would keep the ball and go around the end.ย  I remember thinking. NO, give the ball, and we will win. I had run all over these guys all game, and there was no way they were going to stop me from getting in the end zone. NO CHANCE I can still feel the deflation from not having my number called.ย  As we trotted from the sidelines to the line of scrimmage, I keep thinking Jeff just give me the ball. Let's run 36 Belly G and we will winโ€ฆ..but you didn't do that kind of thing in 1991. Your coach was like a god, and Coach Evatt was like a father to me. So I didn't say a word.ย  Jeff approaches the center ~ the ball is hiked ~ Jeff fakes the handoff ~ I blast through the hole pretty much-untouched landing in the end zone ~ Jeff heads around the end and is tackled before he can get in the end zone.ย  We lose 20 to 21ย  I'd give anything to have to play over again. The story and lesson isn't about me, and it's damn sure not a flashback to the glory days of high school. Those days are long gone. The lesson and the action that I take from that remembrance is WIN or LOSE always go with your best play. There is no shame in failing or falling short when you put it all on the table. When you've left it all on the field. That night in 1991 we didn't do that! Here are the 5 Power Takeaways from this episode: #1 Always run your best play. Don't try to get fancy. #2 Always bet on yourself. To this day, I know if Coach had called my number on that play, the outcome would have been different. We would have won 22 to 21. #3 Use your voice. Hindsight is 20/20, but if I had it all to do again, I would have looked Coach Evatt directly in the eyes and said. "Give me the ball, and we win." #4 When the game is on the line, want the ball. Demand the ball. #5 Use your past as fuel for your future. Not a day goes by that I don't think about that one play, that one yard. I use that moment to make sure I never miss success by one yard every again. You are all one yard away for something awesome in your life. Use the five lessons I learned the hard way to make sure you end up scoring the winning conversion in your life. I believe in you, and I'm excited to watch you win.

Episode 87: The Damage of Deprivation
The Damage of Deprivation In the week's episode, we dive into the damaging effects of deprivation on our mindset. Definition of "deprive of": to take (something) away from (someone or something): to not allow (someone or something) to have or keep (something) Depravation, by definition, means:ย the damaging lack of material benefits considered to be basic necessities in a society ย orย the lack or denial of something considered to be a necessity. Power Takeaways From This Episode: 1. We take a look at the damaging psychology effects of being deprived. 2. Show how being deprived can lead to illogical and irrational behavior. (Binge or overeating ~ hoarding of money or as we all know toilet paper). 3. Feeling deprived of essential resources - love, food, money, time - can lead to anxiety or anger. We may obsess about the thing we've been deprived of. Or we may begin to feel that we need to operate in emergency mode. 4. Deprivation creates a scarcity mindset. 5. A scarcity mindset narrows our time frame, causing us to make impulsive, short-term decisions that increase our difficulties in the long-term, like putting overeating or hoarding food or not staying connected to your essential daily task, and hoping all of your life obligations will magically disappear. 6. Dealing with extremely limited resources increases the problems and barriers we have to deal with, resulting in mental fatigue and cognitive overload. Studies show that being lonely, or deprived, results in an unhealthy obsession, hyper-focus, and overvaluing of the thing we don't have. Ironically, the nature of scarcity itself impedes our coping efforts. 7. Stress and anxiety associated with scarcity interfere with motivation, causing us to be more vulnerable to temptation. 8. The classic deprivation failure ~ The Crash Diet ~ that actually makes us more likely to binge eat - not to mention the physiological effects of hunger on thinking and performance. The Solution:ย  Keeping your mindset positive by stacking momentum is the key to staying out in front of the overwhelm. Here is my five-step formula for turn the feeling of deprivation into appreciation. My formula for this is: #1 Meditation ~ which includes my gratitude, visualization and manifestation for the day #2 Movement ~ minimum of one workout and two walks per day #3 Motivation ~ I read, watch or listen to something motivating and inspiring for a minimum of 15 minutes every day #4 Encouragement ~ I send an encouraging message to at least three people every day (you can't feel hopeless and helpless when you're helpful) #5 Breathe ~ focus on and control your breathing when you feel the stress and anxiety building.

Episode 85: Temptation ~ Gratification ~ Regret ~ Repeat
Temptation ~ Gratification ~ Regret ~ Repeat In this episode, Iโ€™m going to show you how the neural pathways that youโ€™ve created over the years are the reason you keep repeating bad behaviors. And of course, Iโ€™m going to show you how to correct the problem. The million-dollar question is: "Why do I keep doing that even though I know itโ€™s bad for me?โ€ The answers: Itโ€™s your brain's fault! It has to do with neural pathways that get created as we do things. When we do something right, a pathway is created. Unfortunately, a pathway is also created when we something wrong. So the reason we keep making the same mistakes is that we slip by default back into existing neural pathways. Hereโ€™s how the process starts and ends: Temptation: the desire to do something, especially something wrong or unwise. Gratification: pleasure, especially when gained from the satisfaction of a desire Regret: feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over (something that has happened or been done, especially a loss or missed opportunity). Repeat: do (something) again, either once or a number of times. Temptation + Gratification + Regret + Repeat = Insanity Insanity: Albert Einstein famously said, โ€œThe definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.โ€ Power Action Steps: 1. Identify the pattern ~ The only way to correct a pattern is to identify it. I know this sounds simple, but as humans, we do not like to focus on our flaws, so youโ€™re going to have to get brutally honest with yourself. 2. Identify the hole ~ What hole are you trying to fill with the repetitive bad behavior? It could be emotional, physical, psychological, or even a combination of all two or more. 3. Visualize the new outcome ~ Actually, close your eyes and see yourself making a better, more productive decision when the temptation arises. Tap into how you will feel at that moment. Remember that emotion so you can use it when itโ€™s game time. 4. Be vulnerable with yourself ~ Itโ€™s ok, hell itโ€™s necessary to tap into your feelings for this exercise to have its maximum value. Donโ€™t beat yourself up because of your past behavior. Embrace it and then make the power move with a declaration that you deserve better for yourself. 5. Take off your mask ~ this process is going to require brutal honesty. You are going to see things as they are and not from the lens of the story youโ€™ve created as a coping mechanism. This will be challenging, but it will also be a game-changing moment in your journey. See yourself, accept yourself, and love yourself for who you are and who you will become. 6. Celebrate your success ~ share your new awareness with your circle of success. Let them embrace the win with you. This will anchor the new behavior and help you cement the new neural pathway into your subconscious brain.

Episode 77: Looking For Leaders In Uncertain Times
Looking For Leaders In Uncertain Times In this episode, I discuss how now more than ever, we need leaders to stand up. Iโ€™m not talking about the president or elected officials. Iโ€™m talking about you! Power Takeaways From This Episode: 1. Leaders make the tough decision to do whatโ€™s right and not whatโ€™s convenient. 2. The right thing to do is always the right thing to do. 3. Being a leader means that you are willing to delay instant gratification for the greater good and longterm success. 4. This is an opportunity to be better in all areas of your life. You should focus on creating better relationships ~ better habits and standards for your health ~ a better plan of action for your money ~ a better relationship with yourself 5.

Episode 76: You Get What You Tolerate
You Get What You Tolerateย  ย ย  In this episode, I discuss how your standards dictate your future.ย  ย  Power Takeaways From This Episode:ย  ย  1. Are your standards in congruence with the life you desire to live?ย  2. You will only get out of life what you are willing to tolerate.ย  3. Thought, Words, and Actions must be in alignment for you to succeed.ย  4. My daily standard for myself: โ€œToday I will leave every person, place, and thing better than how I found it. I will lead with love and light in all of my encounters. I will shine the brightest in the darkest hours, and I will be the rock for those who seek a better way. I will hold place and space for those in need of help. Today I will be the change I seek in the world.โ€ ย  5. This might be to the most valuable message of the whole podcast: ~ write this down ~ โ€œWhen setting expectations, no matter what has been said or written, if substandard performance is accepted and no one is held accountable ~ if there are no consequences ~ that poor performance becomes the new standard.โ€ 6. Powerful reminder from Kekichโ€™s Credo ~ #4 Real regrets only come from not doing your best. All else is out of your control. You're measured by results only. Trade excuses and "trying" for results, and expect half-hearted results from half-hearted efforts. Do more than is expected of you. Life's easy when you live it the hard way... and hard if you try to live it the easy way. 7. Truth: The further you move away from accountability, the weaker you become! 8. The strongest force in the human personality is the need to stay consistent with how we define ourselves.โ€จ 9. The steps to raising your standards and living a life of purpose and passion. ย  ย Join the FREE ~ Wellness Lab Launch Pad ๐Ÿš€ ~ on Facebook if you'd like to connect with me and receive more tips, strategies, and information about living your best life. https://www.facebook.com/groups/wellnesslablaunchpad โ€จIf you're a fast action taker who's ready to up-level your standards, I invite you to join my Thrive Forever Fit Transformation program! ย https://www.thriveforeverfit.com/program/ ย  Thanks for listening to the Thrive Forever Fit Show!

The Fad Will Lead You Back To FAT In this episode, I will discuss why the transition from fad diet to a sustainable lifestyle is harder than you think ~ the to evidence proves this to be true. Power Takeaways From This Episode: 1. The hottest fad in the โ€œdietโ€ world is the Ketogenic diet ~ everyone is doing it, trying it, or going to do it ~ companies have shifted their entire product lines to Keto Approved, Keto Friendly, or Keto something. Even Fitness and Nutrition coaches without a strong foundation in longterm results are jumping on the Keto bandwagon in droves too. 2. The Keto diet is basically the Atkins diet on Extreme ~ One key difference between the keto diet, and Atkins is the amount of protein you're allowed to take in. There's no cap on Atkins, while keto limits protein to about 20 percent of your daily calories. On Atkins, you eventually reintroduce carbs, but on keto, carbs are always limited. 3. The bottom line for both Keto, Atkins, and all the other hack and quick-fix diets is that they eventually fail ~ PERIOD. If you donโ€™t believe me write down today's day and set yourself a reminder to send an โ€˜FU Jayโ€ note to me in one year if you're still rocking keto and having success ~ no breaks, no fall off the wagons, no trying something else you read on the internet. 4. ALL Deprivation and Extreme diets will eventually fail. 5. Outside of the un-sustainability of eating 70% of your calories from fat, 20% from protein, and 10% from carbs for the rest of your life, there are some health reasons why these yo-yo fad diets eventually lead you back to being FAT. 6. How the Fad Yo-Yo rollercoaster youโ€™ve been on for years has your metabolic rate jacked up ~ your body has ZERO clue what the hell youโ€™re doing, and it doesnโ€™t trust you to make good decisions anymore, so it starts to shut down ~ slowly can you blame it? 7. Why your cortisol levels being out of wack is effecting your adrenals and how prolonged increases in cortisol output can lead to adrenal dysfunction resulting in chronic fatigue, thyroid imbalances, depression, anxiety, poor sleep, and a slew of other health issues. 8. How your thyroid hormones going wild leads to weight gain. 9. How a testosterone drop puts women at even more of a disadvantage when dieting considering the already lower levels of testosterone levels (in comparison to men) making muscle building or maintenance, and therefore fat loss, more of a challenge. 10. The bottom line is this guys ~ stop the fad, quick-fix gimmicks and create a nutritional lifestyle plan that is sustainable and manageable forever. 11. One of the MAIN differences in my Thrive Forever Fit program compared to all the other hacks you find on the internet and in your local fitness studios. 12. Itโ€™s not because these people donโ€™t care, they just care more about making money than they do helping you longterm. 13. My program ~ my biz ~ my podcast is called Thrive FOREVER FIT for a reason ~ my goal is to help you create a life that keeps you forever fit.

Episode 73: Treat Your Body Like A Business
Treat Your Body Like A Business In this episode, I will discuss how I treat all aspects of my life, including my body (health and fitness), like a successful business. Power Takeaways From This Episode: 1. Running your body like you would run a successful thriving business is the key to having the health and fitness you desire. 2. Excess withdrawals lead to your business going bankrupt ~ the same concept applies to your body. Excess negative behaviors will bankrupt your body. 3. Successful businesses make more positive deposits than they down negative withdrawals. Again this applies perfectly to having a healthy body. 4. Create a list of your daily activities and then write deposit or withdrawal next to the action. Tally your + and - and see if you're making money or losing money in your business (body). 5. Simplify the decision-making process is the key to long-term consistency and success If you would like more information, tips, and strategies to gain mindset mastery, join my FREE Facebook group.

We think of transformation in the visual sense ~ before and after photos or numbers decreasing on a scale, but this isnโ€™t where the process begin itโ€™s merely a side effect of the success of the decision that way made.ย  ย  2. I believe that all transformations begin on the inside with the decision that you will no longer tolerate your current situation whatever it may be.ย  ย  ย  3. And without this decision the visual portion of the transformation never happens because the process lacks the strength ~ the WHY ~ that is mandatory for any successful change to occur.ย  ย  ย  ย 4.

When Whatever Turns Into WTF ย ย  ย  ย Welcome to Season Three of the Thrive Forever Fit Show ย  In this episode, I will discuss how the use of โ€œWhateverโ€ is taking you down a path that leads to waking up in a WTF situation.ย  ย  ย  The use of disempowering language like โ€œwhateverโ€ is holding you hostage in a life you actually donโ€™t want to be in.ย  ย  ย  Every time you use vocabulary like this, you give your power away to a person, person, or thing, and through this forfeiture of power, you get the leftovers of life.ย  Power Takeaways From This Episode:ย  ย  ย  1. The words you use either make you stronger or weaker.ย  ย  2. Weak, disempowering language leads to a life of toleration.ย  ย  ย  3. Youโ€™ve been programmed through your environment and experiences to expect the life that is giving to you as opposed to going after the life you desire.ย  ย  ย  ย 4.

Episode 68: You Must Believe You Deserve It
You Must Believe You Deserve Itย  In this episode, I will help you shift your mindset from โ€œI wish I could have thatโ€ to โ€œI deserve to have that.โ€ย  ย  ย This shift is crucial for success in every area of life. Because the hard truth is that you will never have more than you believe you deserve.ย  ย  ย And as you know, I am the person that believes you can be, do, and have everything you desire if you're willing to apply the effort to your life to achieve it. Power Takeaways From This Episode: โ€จ 1. Everyone wants to have something that they arenโ€™t willing to work hard enough to get.ย  ย  ย 2. The thing for me was writing my first book: The Overweight Mind.ย  ย  ย 3. How did I shift from wanting to doing? Support, Accountability, Modeling ~ I joined a mastermind group.ย  ย  ย 4. All areas of your life require you to up-level to achieve the things you desire. This includes making more money, be healthy and fit, and having a great fulfilling relationship.ย  ย  ย 5. You must be willing to give up your current state of perceived comfort in-order to get the real happiness you desire. For me, this was quitting a six-figure job I hated to start a career working within my purpose and passion.ย  ย  ย 6. You must make the decision that you will go all-in and apply the effort necessary to win. This means burning your boat, not having a plan B, and giving up all those safe excuses youโ€™ve been using for years. โ€จโ€จIf you like more information, tips, and strategies to gain mindset mastery, join my FREE Facebook group. โ€จโ€จ Join the FREE ~ ย Wellness Lab Launch Pad ๐Ÿš€ ~ on Facebook if you'd like to connect with me and receive more tips, strategies, and information about living your best life.โ€จโ€จ ย https://www.facebook.com/groups/wellnesslablaunchpad/ Thanks for listening to the Thrive Forever Fit Show!

Episode 63: Diet vs. Transformation (yes they are very different)
Diet vs. Transformation (yes they are very different) In this episode, I'm going to example the differences between a diet and a transformation. After you've listened I you'll have all the tools, knowledge, and resources to make an educated decision on which one is best for you. Secret: There is only one correct answer. Power Takeaways from this Episode: 1. Diets are based on deprivation and starvation vs. Transformation, which are built on modification and moderation. 2. Diets have a start and stop date, which means once the stop date comes, you will revert back to your pre-start habits, which equal weight gain vs. Transformations that don't have an end date or finish line. When there is no end date, you continue to build momentum and progress as you go. 3. Diets are built on quick-fix gimmicks, pills, potions and lotions, and the ever-popular buzz term hacks vs. Transformations, which are built on mindful, intelligent decision making through modifications and moderation. 4. Diets might bring short term instant gratification, but it is always followed by a depressive relapse to old habits vs. Transformations, which are provide real longterm results that are sustainable for a lifetime. 5. Diets do more harm than good by jacking up your hormone and immune systems leading to longterm side-effects and sickness vs. Transformations that improve your bodied internal systems and lead to a healthier body inside and out. 6. Diets lead to disease vs. Transformations, which prevent and even eradicate diseases. 7.Diets cause anxiety and depression vs. Transformations, which improve mental health and lead to healthy, happier lives. So as you can clearly see, Transformation is the only logical choice. Get off the diet rollercoaster forever and start your Transformation today. There are two ways I can help you.

If youโ€™ve known me prior to reading this book, you probably know how much value I place on the quality of people in a support system; you know I call it your Circle of Success.ย  Ever since I met Lori and committed to creating a better life for myself, Iโ€™ve realized how important it is to keep people around who challenge me. If no one is pushing me out of my comfort zone, Iโ€™ll just stay put. I am very intentional about the people I give my time and energy to, and I invest in coaches, programs, and masterminds to support my continual growth. One person Iโ€™m privileged to call a mentor is none other than Ed Mylett. I have learned a ton from Ed, but one of the biggest lessons heโ€™s handed down to me can be summed up by the following: @edmylett There is nothing quite like the feeling of momentum. Like a snowball rolling downhill, just a little bit of movement can eventually translate to a powerful force once things start moving. An objectโ€™s momentum doesnโ€™t begin as a massive, unstoppable force. It starts as a small thing that keeps picking upsize and/or speed the more it continues down its path.

Episode 59: It's Not A F#@king Diet
"It's not a fucking diet!" Sorry about using the "D" word so boldly. I know that word carries a lot of power and creates negative feelings for most of you. And rightly so! If you're anything like me and 100% of my clients, you've tried a diet or diets and FAILED every single time. Why, because that's precisely what diets are set-up for you to do, FAIL. The concept of the "diet" is flawed from the get-go. Here are the stages of the diet: *Bold declaration of new eating pattern with a set start and end date, inset Keto, Paleo, Low-Carb, No-Carb, Dr. ________, Book I read, Internet guy/gal I follow that is super fit, etc... *Clean out fridge and pantry of all the junk. *Go to store spend a boatload of money on a bunch of green stuff you'll never eat. *I Forget, elaborate Facebook/IG post about your new diet that is going to be the one that changes it all for you. Insert #thisismyyear *10 days later, the green stuff is gross and starting to smell up the fridge, so you throw it away and go to the store to repurchase the junk you threw away ten days before. Or something like that. This is WHY you will hear me preach and teach that a DIET is not your solution for the situation. And this is WHY I created and teach my Thrive Forever Fit Program. Thrive Forever Fit is a lifestyle, not a diet. Thrive Forever Fit is a lifestyle, not a quick fix. Thrive Forever Fit is a lifestyle, not a hack. Thrive Forever Fit is a lifestyle, not deprivation and starvation. You don't need someone to tell you that salads are healthier than donuts. You don't need someone to tell you that you shouldn't get ice cream every night before bed. You don't need someone to tell you that drinking soda and eating candy bars every day is eventually going to make you fat. You need someone to support up. You need someone to help you with accountability. You need someone to help you with motivation and inspiration. You need someone to believe in you even thou you don't believe in yourself. You need guidance and support, not deprivation and starvation. You need a lifestyle that allows you to eat everything and anything you like while still staying healthy and fit. Healthy and fit don't have an END DATE, diets do. The key to your success is mindful, intelligent eating, accompanied by support and accountability. If you're tired of being on a diet, give me a buzz, send me a DM, get in touch with me somehow, and I will show you how to live forever fit without ever having to use the D-word again.

I'm merely stating the facts about how we (humans) operate. โฃ โฃ Most people are settling for one or more of the following. โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ™Subpar to poor health - you settle for this with the disillusioned justification that someday, one day you will get your shit together and start taking care of yourself. โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ™Barely getting by, living paycheck to paycheck or just flat out broke - you settle for being broke because "money doesn't grow on trees" or "this is how I was raised" or any of the other bullshit cliches that you've heard a million times. โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ™Unfulfilling, drama-filled, negative relationships - we do this because our self-worth and self-esteem are nonexistent. In life, you get what you tolerate, and you are tolerating bad behavior from those that supposedly love you. โฃ โฃ Here's the truth about life: โฃ โฃ "๐˜๐จ๐ฎ ๐—ช๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ ๐‡๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐Œ๐จ๐ซ๐ž ๐“๐ก๐š๐ง ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ ๐๐ž๐ฅ๐ข๐ž๐ฏ๐ž ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ ๐ƒ๐ž๐ฌ๐ž๐ซ๐ฏ๐ž." โฃ โฃ And the reason you are tolerating poor health, being broke and shitty relationships is that you don't value yourself. โฃ โฃ Your self-worth and self-esteem are so fractured that you are willing to tolerate just getting by or good enough. โฃ โฃ You're settling for too little out of life! โฃ โฃ Life is designed to be filled with ๐€๐๐”๐๐ƒ๐€๐๐‚๐„. โฃ โฃ Life is designed to be filled with ๐‡๐€๐๐๐ˆ๐๐„๐’๐’. โฃ โฃ Life is designed to be filled with ๐‹๐Ž๐•๐„. โฃ โฃ And the beautiful part of it all is that you are the designer. โฃ โฃ You get to decide what you will no longer tolerate. ย โฃ โฃ You get to decide what you deserve. โฃ โฃ ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ ๐ ๐ž๐ญ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ƒ๐„๐‚๐ˆ๐ƒ๐„๐ƒ! โฃ โฃ Stop settling my friend and make the decision that you will live a life of abundance, happiness, and love. โฃ Thanks for listening to the Thrive Forever Fit Show!

Episode 46: The EIGHT Person Cleanse
The EIGHT Person Cleanseย  Removing these eight people from your life NOW is essential to your health and happiness.ย  **Disclaimer: this will include some of your family and friends - sorry** ย ย  8 People That Gotta Go: 1. Those who spread negativity. Hereโ€™s the bottom line and something I remind myself all the time. If someone is spreading negativity about others, eventually they will spread it about me. Negative people are only loyal to negativity. Eventually, you will find yourself in their crosshairs.ย  2. Those you criticize you. Get rid of these jokers immediately. Only surround yourself with people that support and lift you higher. ย  3. Those who waste your time. TIME is your most valuable resource, and the one thing you can make more of in your life. Time vampires must be let go NOW.ย  4. Those who are jealous. Jealously is a poison that will kill any relationship. The most dangerous person you can be around is someone that views your success as their failure. ย  5. Those who play the victim. Surround yourself with victors and not victims. The victim mentality is so draining and damning to your relationship. You canโ€™t win if the players on your team are victims. We all get to decided daily will we be. Victim or a Victor - always choose Victor.ย  6. Those who donโ€™t care. You know who Iโ€™m talking about, that joker who is only in the relationship for what they can get and has no intention of giving. Cut them NOW.ย  7. ย Those who are self-centered. These people believe the world revolves around them, and they are incapable of having a relationship with anyone other than themselves - and even that relationship is dysfunctional.ย  8. Those who keep disappointing you. If youโ€™re like me, you have high expectations for those you allow in your life. Reread all of the above - I assure you that the person who keeps disappointing you also has one or more of the above bad qualities too. Thanks for listening to the Thrive Forever Fit Show!

Episode 44: You Can Have Perfect Sight And No Vision
You Can Have Perfect Sight And No Vision - It Happened To Me Last week was challenging for me.ย  I've been seeking clarity on a couple of projects and business ideas, with little luck.ย  So like clockwork, the Universe stepped in and began to try to show me the way. I only say "try" because I can be a little, and sometimes she has to work overtime to get her message through my thick skull.ย  Her first three attempts were subtle and clear, but as I mentioned above, my thick skull sometimes prevents the delivery.ย  And because she knows I'm a visual learner, she did what only the Universe can do. She planted the message right in front of my face.ย  As you listen to the podcast, you hear about the following:ย  1. "Comparison Is the Thief of Joy" ~ Theodore Roosevelt 2. "Unhappiness Is Always Accompanied by Comparison." ~ Ed Mylett 3.

High standards equal high rates of return. Low standards equal a minimal existence and the acceptance of the average.ย  Today we will discuss and by discuss I mean I'm going to rant about WHY you should never lower your standards if you seak an amazing life.ย  Truth: Most people lower their standards to match or meet their efforts.ย  And this is why "most people" don't have the life they desire.ย  Elevate your efforts to the level of your standards, and you'll achieve all the things you wish for in your life.ย  Reminder: In life, we only get what we are willing to tolerate.ย  Only tolerate the best of yourself and for yourself.ย  Thanks for listening to the Thrive Forever Fit Show!

Episode 40: Are You Being Derailed By Your Default Settings?
Are You Being Derailed By Your Default Settings? ย  In this episode, you'll learn how your default settings are getting in the way of you and your success.ย  What is a default setting?ย  Well in the world of technology (phones and computers) A default, in computer science, refers to the preexisting value of a user-configurable setting that is assigned to a software application, computer program or device. ... In many devices, the user has the option to restore these default settings for one or all options. In the human sense, it refers to your brain and your defaulted behaviors based on certain stimuli.ย  More simply stated you have been pre-programmed (your sub-conscience brian) with default reactions or behaviors. The majority of these defaults were programmed well before you become conscious of what was going on in the world.ย  Science states that few adults can remember anything that happened to them before the age of 3. Now, a new study has documented that it's about age 7 when our earliest memories begin to fade, a phenomenon known as โ€œchildhood amnesia.โ€ In this episode, we will uncover some of your "default settings" and give you some actionable tips on how to reprogram your brain so that your default settings become positive and stop holding you back in life.ย  Thanks for listening to the Thrive Forever Fit Show!

Stage Four 2 On Stage with Dylan Slattery LESS THAN 15% CHANCE OF SURVIVAL. ย DYLAN WAS NOT EXPECTED TO LIVE. Feeling a lack of purpose in his senior year of college, Dylan was suffering from depression and thoughts of suicide. ย Following his first diagnosis with melanoma at age 22, Dylan had surgery that left him with a seven-inch scar down the right side of his face. ย Falling into a deeper depression, Dylan ran from his demons, masking them with alcohol, drugs, food, and any other distraction he could find. ย 8 months later, he was involved in a fatal car accident where he lost a high school classmate and friend. Just when things could not seem to get any worse, Dylan made the decision to leave college after his friends became worried he might take his own life. ย Just when things couldnโ€™t seem to get any worse, cancer returned, just a year and a half after his original diagnosis. In five years, Dylan literally took his life from Stage Four 2 On Stage. ย Now he is challenging you to do the same. Whether it is a life-threatening diagnosis, a cancerous teammate, relationship, or self-sabotaging thoughts that are keeping you from pursuing your dreams. The world is full of cancer. ย  WE HAVE A CHOICE. ย BE A CURE. Stage Four 2 On Stage The Thrive Forever Fit Program Social Media: Facebook Instagram Grab a copy of my book:ย  The Overweight Mind

Episode 31: You And David Goggins Have This In Common
You And David Goggins Have This In Commonย  "YOU'VE GOT EVERYTHING IT TAKES... BUT ARE YOU WILLING TO DO EVERYTHING IT TAKES?" That is such a simple yet powerful thought.ย  It's 100% true.ย  You have everything you need to do everything you desire.ย  Truth: There are people with LESS than you doing MORE than you right now.ย  Less money, less education, less skills, etc... But the one difference is they are willing to DO everything it takes.ย  Listen I get it. The doing is the hard part.ย  It's much easier to sit around and pontificate about all the things you're GOING to do.ย  But the act of actually doing, well that's no fun. Ok, I'm not here to bust your chops.ย  Iโ€™m here to help you.ย  So, let's do this, what if I gave you three simple actions you could start right now that would get you doing instead of thinking?ย  Would you be down for that?? AWESOME!ย  1. Believe that you have everything you need because it's true. And the TRUTH is if you don't believe this first thing the rest of what I have to say doesn't matter.ย  2. Take action, not on everything, because that would be overwhelming. I want you to write down three actions you WILL take today that will move you closer to your goals. ย  Now, these aren't maybes or shoulds. These are MUST ACTIONS.ย  3. Accountability - I want you to tell one person exactly what you are going to do today and ask them to hold you accountable.ย  Ask them to text you throughout the day and check in on your MUST list.ย  Once you've completed your list, send them a text with a picture of your list with all three items checked off or a photo of you smiling from ear to ear because you are proud of yourself.ย  Repeat these three steps every day.ย  I still do this every single day!!!!
