And Then She Died…

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly


I don’t know why she swallowed a fly


I think. She’ll. Die…

I know an old lady…

Ok I think you might remember that little

Diddy from elementary school.

old lady

Yeah, I mean who swallows

A Fly





And eventually a horse?

Seriously, though who does that???

I’ll tell you who

A dead old lady. HA!

We can both agree that her methods might have been

A little off, but she was determined to fix her original mistake

Until she eventually just died

I feel you grandma.

Yesterday we talked about how it can take time to reach your potential

I said something along the lines of “…if you haven’t been burned out before

Then you’re either lying to yourself or you haven’t challenged yourself.”

I would have you consider that it is good to know and test your limits.

Scratch the ceiling, but don’t scratch so hard you fall over

Go unconscious and have to take extra time off 

Only to find that when you get back, the ceiling is now

Covered in scratch resistant, stainless steel.

You see, I don’t know why that old lady swallowed the fly

But I do know why she eventually died.


Don’t let it happen to you.

Don’t wait until you are frustrated to the point of tears (or eating a horse)

Discover a new path to success that brings you closer to

Your goals without burning you out in flames

If you are frustrated with your current situation and you feel like 

You just aren’t getting where you want with your health or happiness

Then I would have you consider that my program may be for you.

P.S. I would like to reiterate that burnout is serious.

But at the same time, you have to have serious work ethic to get there.

So don’t take this as me saying that you should just relax 

While you wait for your goals to come to you.

So I guess I’m halfway endorsing burnout

At least once in your life (preferably early on) so you know what it is to work your hardest

Then work your way back to a good balance. Talk soon…

Proving The Invisible


“…Prove it…” 
That’s what everybody wants
We all want proof that something exists.
We can prove just about anything

Including a few things we can’t see, like gravity and wind.

But what about those things that we can’t really see or measure?
Do they really exist?
Does God exist?
Does love exist?
It’s funny, so many believe that ghosts and bigfoot exists based on a few grainy photos
But you start talking about love and people freak out and start acting
Like you just let out a fart in church. 
There are some times when you simply have to believe that
There are yet unexplained forces at work. 
I invite you to imagine a world without belief…
We would have no innovation, people would never go beyond “what’s there”
Because if the first caveman didn’t have the belief that he could create fire on his own
Then you probably wouldn’t be reading
This message on your phone/laptop/tablet
What makes us believe in one thing that’s invisible, but not another?
It’s a question that we may never find the answer to. 
It’s just as true with love
Although you may not be able to measure it, you for damn sure can see
What happens when it’s absent. 
So whatever your belief on love, the power that it possesses is undeniable.
Proving the invisible is simple, but not easy. 
For us to understand the way it works, you must first work it to understand.
In other words, love everyone around you. 
You will always feel the power of it returned.

P.S. I do believe in love, as corny as it may sound. 
Not in the lovey dovey hug somebody way, but in the way that it’s what is behind everything 
That we call reality. The spiritual gurus and quantum physicists seem to agree that we are
Somehow all connected and I think that connection is love

But we just haven’t figured out how to access it’s true power.

I think of it like trying to tell that cave man from earlier that he could make fire on his own

Instead of waiting for lighting to strike wood.

But, honestly I don’t claim to have all the answers, I just have a few right questions that
