Pressure Bursts Pipes

pressure causing water main burst

Ok so maybe I’ve been under a little pressure lately. I try to write every day for you my loyal reader because frankly, I care about you. I wanna see you succeed because I believe in raising the standard all around. We don’t live like we did 200, 100, even 50 years ago because of people that believed in a higher standard for all.

But you know with granny bear just kinda fighting for her life right now, it’s been difficult. There are problems that can easily be solved in this world, especially when it comes to relationships and business, but when it comes to life and death, the lines tend to get a little fuzzy.

De-stress not Suppress

But I’ve found a real solution that can help in relieving the pressure of stress. The best part is that you won’t wake up tomorrow morning feeling hung over or embarrassed. There’s no chance of you waking up wondering if that was a bad dream or the reality of what happens to you when you actually drink beer before liquor.

The solution? Simple.

You gotta do more winning than losing. It’s pretty much a game of stacking the odds in your favor and knowing how is key. Now I don’t have a lot of time left, because I try to keep these short for you, but I’d have you consider this before I go.

Confidence is the key to winning whatever you want in life. But the most important thing is to protect that confidence.

How do you protect your confidence?

Well that’s a question I don’t exactly have time for today, but if you’d like to discuss this more, feel free to email me here. I’d be happy to have a personal conversation with ya. Otherwise I encourage you to leave your comment below. Thanks for reading.

Is The Passion Gone?

Everyone has a passion. For instance, you might have taken a job, because you were passionate about having a roof over your head and food to eat, but hey whatever….

The issue is, if your passion is more than having food to eat, the desire to stick to it can come and go. If you’re familiar with Simon Sinek’s work, you’ll know that sometimes the “why” you originally had can easily be transformed into “what” with just a few outside influences.

So is the answer to simply stop pursuing your passion?

Yes…and no…

You see, I’ve read from many books on sociology and from my experience with hundreds, if not thousands of entrepreneurs and employees as personal training clients, that pursuing your passion is the easiest way to burn yourself out. Think about this: Mother Theresa’s passion was to help the less fortunate, however around the time of her death, she was questioning the existence of God and was clinically depressed.

It’s not enough to pursue your passion. There is more, oh…so much more my feathered friend, I’m not gonna have time to show it all to you today, but before you go about your day I want you to ponder something.

If instead of pursuing your passion, what if you pursued something that simply made you CURIOUS?

Just a thought.

P.S. I was always curious as a kid, that’s why I always experimented and asked questions. But it didn’t stop in childhood, you should never stop learning. Warren Buffett is 80 something years old and he says he actively pursues learning something every day. In fact he says that what he’s learned now has helped him execute deals that he wouldn’t have otherwise known how to do a decade ago. Ne hoo, gotta get to painting. Talk soon…


Work With Me 4 Free (Kinda)

It isn’t every day that I reach a milestone, so I kinda wanna celebrate. Nothing really special, it’s just that I’ve been working with my inner circle for two years now and I’ve been writing daily emails for them ever since (subscribe here). I’m pretty excited though so I wanted to spread the love with you.


If you are in the Philadelphia area you’re in luck. (If not, tell a friend that’s here) I’m offering my services for free.


You see, I’ve written so many emails and so many blogs that have helped people in their lives, I’ve gotten kind of addicted to helping people. And I want to really help people, not because I’m trying to get rich off of them, it’s because I really care about the state of our world.


I’m gonna keep this positive today, but the way I see it, for every fake news article, for every advertisement that says you “NEED” this or you “HAVE TO HAVE” that, I want to help someone realize that the answer to fulfillment does not lie in those things. In fact, I’ve learned over the past couple of years that there is so much more to life than THINGS.


So I’m giving some things away. Membership to my program to be exact. For those of you in the know, (and if you aren’t you are now) you’ll know that I’m building out a fitness studio. But I don’t want it to be just any fitness studio.


It’s gonna be the General Fitness Company and it’s going to approach fitness in a whole new way. I’m taking my business degree (MBA) and my previous stint in the psychology field and I’m combining them to create the ultimate program for success.


And I’m offering it to you for free. Well actually, I’m giving you entrance into it for free ($440 value) I’ve been training people for over a decade with fitness and I think it’s time to add more because you have asked for more. And I’m one of the few personal trainers that you know that has a psychology and business degree, so ummm…it’s like a no brainer to start a program like this.


If you want in on the $440 jumpstart, just click the link below and type in “thanks for 730” in the comment section and I’ll get in contact with you to get started as soon as I can.

Jerry “thanks again” Washington


P.S. This has been my brain child for a long time. Because I’ve felt the need for it myself. I’ve been there where I’ve had a ton of money and I blew it all just trying to find happiness and in the process, I also blew a lot of people out of my life. I know why that happened and for the most part, it’s because we’ve been fed misinformation so that companies could get richer. That’s not my goal, I just want something to leave behind that my children can say that “daddy made a difference” So if you would like to help me with that (and help yourself in the process), click the link above to get started.
