348: Your Lies Become Your Truth

Tags:

Be careful. Your lies will become your truth. The messages we send to ourselves via our thoughts & words become our reality. They are powerful. Your thoughts & words are not only descriptive but also prescriptive. They are instructions to your subconscious & they inform your behavior. If you're saying that you're out of control and have no motivation, that will become your truth, whether you want it to or ...Read More

Year of Push 3.17 Supple Leopard

Tags:

If you listen much to the Primal Potential Podcast, you know that I'm always asking people to evaluate if what they are doing works for them. It's a huge mistake to blindly follow a way of eating that doesn't give you the results you're looking for. Like I said yesterday, it really doesn't matter if it works for someone else. It doesn't matter at all. All that matter is if ...Read More

Year of Push 3.12 Insults & Observations

Tags:

After my workout this morning, I was cooling down on a bike. An older woman came up to me and said, "Great job on that run!" "Thanks. Running isn't yet a strength but I'm working on it."

Tags:

I was completely in "the zone" today. It was around noon time when I realized, "Holy sh*t, I feel unstoppable today!" It was one of those days where you're full of energy, getting things done, crushing the to-do list, making great choices and feeling like everything is possible.

Year of Push 2.21 Be Intentional

Tags:

Happy May Day! We had a May Day tradition when I was growing up. My mom always said it was a Polish tradition, but who knows... We'd wake up on May 1st & run to the front door. On the outside steps would be a basket for each of us - kinda like an Easter basket - that would contain flowers, candy & money. My mom told us that the ...Read More

Year of Push 2.18 I’m Not Competing

Yay for lessons! Today brought a great one. Sure, it's one I already knew & one I teach my FLFT clients all the time, but as with all lessons, we have to learn them over and over. Today, I re-learned. I'm so grateful for a good friend giving me a powerful truth. My workout was brutal today. It was a combination of being a little sore & tired from yesterday ...Read More
