Create Your Environment or Your Environment Will Create YOU

Create Your Environment or Your Environment Will Create YOU

As I continue my journey as a father, coach/trainer, (ex-husband lol) and entrepreneur/business owner, sometimes I can have in a bit of a negative disposition, if I allow these short-term situations within the surrounding environment around me control my attitude and my approach towards my daily activities that negative environment will  influence my behavior to a certain extent and if I don’t recognize this negative influence my  environment will create my reality, which will influence my behavior and when that happens my environment is creating who I am..... Unless I make a conscious effort to maintain a positive environment.

Are you Ceasar?

Are you Ceasar?

As I write this post I continue to ask myself are you, Caesar? And to be honest I would like to think that I am and I see myself in that way (most of the time) but sometimes my impatience leads me in the opposite direction; not all of the time but enough for me to see it. I truly love helping people and seeing them reach their goals and go beyond any perceived limitations. I truly care about the well-being of everyone because I feel showing someone that they matter and that they are acknowledged and their opinions and points of view are valued leads to them passing those valuable traits onto someone else and leading them to hopefully develop other leaders.

Is your success Too expensive?

Is your success Too expensive?

 Everything has a price, what price are you willing to pay to reach your goal successfully? What are your goals? Or do you just have dreams and aspirations inside your head in a confortable place that you just admire and they are fun to think about. Where is your plan if action to make your dreams a reality? And most importantly what price are you willing to pay to make it happen? Those are the questions I ask myself everyday some days I have to force myself to make my actions match my goals. Over the last year my goals have been good but that were not great!

The Missing Link

With this oversold focus on nutrition our diets have evolved into an over specialized industry that sells us on the "magic" formula that comes in a pill, powder, or ready to drink mixture of proprietary ingredients that are not listed on the packaging. This is especially true for active athletic individuals at all levels.
