Enjoying Life
Recently a new life was brought into this family. It is a true gift from God. I feel compelled to teach every and all things that I have learned to my family. Thus is the cycle of life. As different as all our lives seem, they are so very identical. Life and death are inevitable. All of us have a choice no matter what environment we were brought into. The beautiful thing about life is that you can change the direction that you are headed at any time. To many times I am approached by people who have accepted the bad hand that they have been dealt in life. Those people have ether blamed their situation on someone or a situation. You see, life has options and you have one chance to live your passion. I have many people that I give advice to that have started with the attitude that they have to many things that they can't change. When I ask them to give me an example they almost always have the same answer; "I don't have enough money to change my life" or "anyways it's to late for me". Let's address the first response. When I first started out I didn't know what I was going to do. I did not go to college until I was in my 30's but I knew that at a young age I was going to be successful no matter what it took! I had no money to speak of but had tons of ambition. What I found out was, that life is tough! I never gave up, made my mistakes, but found a way to succeed! You will make many mistakes but YOU MUST LEARN from them. DO NOT LET your failures destroy the rest of your life. YOU MUST brush off the dust and get back on the horse! If you do not act on your failures, they will consume you like a cancer. Make things happen and all other things find a way to fit in. I think we put that to rest! On to the second comment. The truth is it's not to late for most people! Let me give an example; the average life expectancy of a male in the USA is 76 and 81 for all females! The average range of people I talk to are about 30 to 50 years old. Lets do some math. 30 year old people have 61 % of their life left if they are male and 63% of their life left if they are female. They have not even lived half their lives but are willing to give up already and live the life that they are unhappy with! Once the facts are laid out it doesn't make much of an argument does it? Now, lets take a look at the 50 year old. They have 34 % of their life left if they are male and 38% of their life left if they are a female. I am 52 years old and I am taking advantage of the full 31.6 % of life that I have left! How? I am keeping myself in shape, changing it up everyday, taking myself out of my comfort zone, and never giving up!
I want to encourage you to live this one life with the passion that consumes you. Act on it and become it! Life is short and should be enjoyed with the ones you love. But remember to make others happy, you must be happy with yourself.

God Bless,

Do You Deserve Happiness? have so many people that I come in contact with on a daily basis that seem to be so unhappy. Is there anything I can do to help? I am a person who never quits until I accomplish something so why can’t I help these people! After trying to help these people find happiness I soon found that there was nothing that I could do. So where does the help come from? Help comes from within ourselves. Where do you start? First we have to examine consistency. I found that consistency can be an asset and a destroyer. For example, if you have a successful life and you don’t want your lifestyle to change then you are not going to do anything to disrupt it. On the other hand if you are in a daily routine that brings the same unhappy outcome day after day then you should change it right? Almost in all situations I witnessed I found that the most miserable or unhappy people never change their habit or routines. Without change, things never change! Makes sense right? So why if these people are so unhappy do they never change their day to day routine? After talking to some of these people I came back with the same general answer, “no I can’t do that”. People “can’t do that” because they choose not to. The comfort zone they are accustomed to gives them a false security that it won’t get worse, the truth is it will never get better ether! The question that needs to be asked is, do you deserve to be happy? If the answer is yes, then why? If you can answer why you deserve to be happy then you have just given yourself the motivation to get out of your comfort zone. Change is not easy, but with the right motivation you can propel yourself to a happy lifestyle. Find out your “whys” and then make a plan to give yourself the happiness you deserve, NO EXCUSES! Remember that we mostly use excuses to make it alright not to finish something. When you don’t finish something it creates a sense of failure. Failure loves excuses. Excuses allow failure to grow until you are beat down and just submit to it or most commonly put “quit”. Once you quit on something you always wonder if you could have succeeded if you would have kept going. How many of you have thought, I wish I would have done this or maybe that! The fact is this, life is short and you have one life to achieve happiness. If you are reading this then you care enough about yourself to make a change.
Teresa and I needed to make a change in our life. We wanted something that would give us some additional income in just a couple hours a day. We also agreed that we would make a list of what this venture had to involve. The list went like this; 1.) Since we owned other businesses it could not take up all of our time,  2.)We had to enjoy and have a passion for it,  3.) It had to be something we could do together, 4.) We wanted to create more friendships, 5.)We wanted to do it from our home with minimal investment and overhead, and 6.) We needed to have fun doing it.
 After checking into many things, the answer was right in front of us! We had started working out to P90X and got our (older) bodies back into shape. We felt much better, looked better, and changed our lifestyle by getting into shape. We still workout almost daily! We were having people always asking us how we stay in shape. After giving advice to so many people we decided to become coaches!
We were already helping people but becoming a coach could give us some extra income. We have been coaches for over 4 years now and love what it brings to the table! We met all of our criteria's of what we were looking for and coaching introduced us to many new friends! Not to mention it surpased the amount of income we were hoping to accomplish.
Never give up on your happiness, you deserve it. Start your change today by setting a goal, putting a plan together, and following thru. Don’t let anything or anyone stand in the way of the happiness you deserve to have.   CLICK one of the buttons below to learn more about The Coaching Business and why we choose to do it in our spare time.  We will reply back to you immediately.

Sharing the Success

It’s so important to find someone who believes and supports what you do. Fitness happens to be a big part of my life. My wife Teresa also realizes the importance of being healthy. Fitness brings a better quality of life. Life is here once for you and me. Let your health take a leading role in the quality of your life. Having all the success in the world will not bring you enjoyment if you are not healthy enough to enjoy it. Take care of yourself and then take care of your business! What's my drive? I sum it up with this to my wife.   

"She doesn’t believe me when I tell her. She doesn’t know why I am so driven. She doesn’t believe she’s that important to me. If she only knew how simple it really is. If she could just know that all my work, passion, and the relentless way I push myself has been rewarded with what Is in this picture. It’s the smile. That’s right, that smile that says so much. All these things I do, I do for that smile. It is that simple.
 You may already know your "why" but don't know how to achieve it. If that is where you are at, I can help. Respond to the contact box at the bottom right and we will talk.

The Journey to your Dreams Americans dream of starting their own business. What starts as a dream very often ends as a nightmare. The fact is, starting you own business takes a series of many commitments. Many times the thought of owning your own business is closely followed with the thought of the good life. Big homes, plenty of money, and all of the comforts of life are all part of the dream. In reality, the opposite will probably happen. Why the negative comments and thoughts? I mention these things because in many cases this is true. Why you ask? Failure in new business start-ups happen for many reasons. I will name a few facts why failure in most cases result from new start-ups. Poor planning is a very common occurrence in the failure of a new business. The lack of follow thru and consistency are also a common reason of failure. The thought of  having your own business is great until you actually have to live the life of a business owner on a day to day basis. Having what it takes may not be enough! The system, cash flow, employee problems, rent, loans, insurance, and other expenses could very well destroy your dreams before you have the chance to take your business to the successful or profitable stage. Then why even try you ask? Because with the correct thought process you can make your dreams come true. As a multiple business owner I am here to tell you that it can be done. How you do it is the key. You must eliminate all of the things that will eventually be you demise. Solving this challenge is simply done by finding an idea that minimizes or eliminates the major destroyers. The destroyers mentioned above are all necessities right? Some are and some aren't! Finding the business that minimizes or eliminates most of the destroyers will bring the success you dream of having. If you have interest in talking to me, sign up in the pop up box. This isn't a gimmick and contacting me cost you nothing but your time. It is my way of trying to help someone increase their odds of success. Life is short and you don't want to spend most of it trying to recover from something you could have eliminated. I will ask you a series of questions that will help you find out if you have what it takes. Take the time to do it the right way.
