Memento Mori

In his book Meditations, Marcus Aurelius wrote, “You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think.” It is not meant to be morbid, but a reminder to live each moment as if it is a gift because it is. It is easy to take for granted the life […]

Put in the EFFORT

Most people fail to achieve their goals because they are focused on the result they are after more than the amount of effort they are putting in to achieve it. To create anything worthwhile in your life there is a certain amount of effort you must give. Rather than allowing your success or failure determine […]

What I Learned at Tony Robbins

I attended Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within Event this past weekend in Miami with friends and had an incredible time.

Why It’s Best To Workout in the Morning

The health and fitness industry is tricky to navigate. On any given topic you can find multiple experts saying completely different things. It can make you feel helpless and think there is no point in even trying. How is this possible? A big reason for this is because people (experts included) don’t clarify their outcomes […]

Three Simple Keys To Meditation

Meditation can be hard. But it doesn’t have to be. Most people don’t even get started with it because they think there is a right way of meditating (there isn’t – anything can be meditation: walking, eating, talking, working out, having sex, playing the guitar). I was one of these people. I heard about how […]
