HOW TO START DOING EVERYTHING WELL BY CHANGING THIS

What does it take to do anything well?

Man, that seems like a loaded question doesn’t it?

I don’t know about you but there have been MANY occasions where I’ve thought to myself, and even worse actually said things to myself like:

  • I never do anything right
  • Damn, I’m such a sh*itty writer. My grammar and punctuation sucks!
  • There’s no way I’ll ever be able to do this.
  • I’m just too busy to worry about even trying that right now.

Maybe you’ve told yourself what a poor student you are. How you’ll never be good at this subject or that subject. Or maybe you’re a parent and are second guessing your parental skills.

Or just maybe you’re stuck in a plateau on your health and wellness journey and keep thinking to yourself that it’s pointless to even try anymore.

All of these thoughts, words, and expressions are not unique to you. We’ve all been there, said this, thought that, and have had similar experiences. The on key difference between those that are able to push through these things and those that do not is the way respond to them.

There’s good news, you can learn to respond more positively to these things today.

HOW TO BECOME A SUPERHERO. OR MAYBE YOU ALREADY ARE ONE.

QUICK NOTE: I just want to thank everyone that supported the launch of the Limitless365 Fitness Program. It was a huge success and it’s been really cool connecting with a bunch of you that picked it up this past week.

Now on with the show :)

Walk into my bedroom and you’ll see a pair of Captain America underpants, sketches of superhero kids, and a host of superhero logo t-shirts covering the walls. It’s fairly safe to say that I’m a little superhero obsessed and deep down I actually still think I can become one.

To me superheroes are symbols of perfection. Let me elaborate a bit.

They typically, but not always have the perfect body, hair, attitude, look, charisma, charm, and intelligence. Some of them have had to overcome what seem like insurmountable odds, tackle huge fears, personal demons, and distractions like Froto, Harry Potter, or Katniss Everdeen.

But what really draws me in and gives me hope for my own superheroness (yes this is a word) is the fact that they all have their own flaws, vulnerabilities, and confusions about themselves and life in general.

I find it easy to relate to superheroes not only for the reason mentioned above but also because much like you and I they play so many different roles in life.

  • Father/Mother
  • Son/Daughter
  • Significant other
  • Friend
  • Student
  • Career/Work

They always seem to shine in those moments when we picture ourselves struggling – they are able to handle problems us mere mortals can’t take and they are able to do so with no real agenda, judgement, or influence. It’s simply because they find value in what they are doing, are courageous enough to try, and are willing to accept any outcome.

My obsession led me to Joesph Cambell and “The Heroes Journey;” an understanding that there is a pattern of narrative that can be found in storytelling, drama, religion, mythology, movies, television, psychology, and philosophy that outlines the typical path all heroes must take.

What I realized is that all of us have the ability to create our own superhero story just like Superman, Batman, Froto, and Harry. In the face of adversity all of us can achieve great feats in life either for ourselves or for a group if we follow a similar path.

L365 FITNESS PROGRAM NOW AVAILABLE + A SECTION OF THE PROGRAM FOR FREE

The other day I received an email from a person in the L365 community referencing a quote from the L365 Fitness Program.

“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

She went on to elaborate a little bit and I wanted to share that with you all today simply because it gave me the goosebumps. It sums up what the program is all about.

“I think this quote is a really good reminder to stay true to myself through this process and into my new and improved life as well. I truly believe we teach people how we wish to be treated, so unless I put myself first – no one else will either.” -Kelly

IT’S HERE AND I COULDN’T BE MORE EXCITED :)

The Limitless365 Fitness Program: Building Healthy Habits for Busy People is finally here. After two years of on and off work it is now available.

This would have never been possible without you and the rest of the Limitless365 band of crazies. These last six months in particular are when I really put my nose to the grind stone and finished it up. Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 9.35.08 PM

For your dedication to the growth of the site and its community I wanted to give the L365 community a FREE section of the program. You can get the 28 page Nutrition Introduction Guide Book right here.

I always felt like something was missing from the program until your emails, questions, and all the comments that the community has sent helped me to add that little extra something :)

I’m now confident that the program answers all the questions I’ve received about how to build the healthy habits that lead to a life full of limitless health and wellness.

How to make getting started not so overwhelming

A few Sundays ago I tried some acting for the first time. Just reading scripts in a small setting with a few people, maybe about 15-20 of us. I have zero acting experience and have never read a script in my life. Everyone else there was a director, producer, writer, actor, or had some other experience in the field.

I was sure I was going to ruin this for everyone else there. Here comes the new guy with no experience f*cking it up for everyone. I was so nervous sitting in my group of four with an experienced director in front of us explaining how he wanted the scene to play out. I’m pretty certain a little dabble of pee came out of me and trickled down my leg that’s how scared I was.

I was so afraid I was going to mess up my lines, do it all wrong, and just screw up the entire night not only for myself but for everyone that was involved.

All these negative thoughts almost kept me from participating. I was ready to leave, even had it all planned out. I could say I needed to go to the bathroom and just bolt for the door, never to return again. I could save myself the embarrassment of having to GET STARTED with something new.

It was the perfect plan. I was so overwhelmed by my thoughts that one of the best experience of my life could have never taken place.
