Are You Making This Backwards Decision?

by | Sep 26, 2017 | Blog

In the Primal Potential Masters Club, we read a book together each month. For September we’ve been reading Relentless by Tim Grover. Grover is a performance coach for some of the world’s best athletes including Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.

His services don’t come cheap. In the book he talks about how some athletes aren’t willing to spend $10,000 on his services. Grover remarked, “You aren’t willing to spend $10,000 to ensure you keep making $10,000,000??

It sounds a little absurd to think about it that way – most of us would be very willing to spend $10K to make $10 million.

However, we make these same kinds of backwards decisions, often with much bigger losses, every single day. 

We aren’t willing to make the investments required to get what we want. 

Whether those investments are money, time, effort or discipline, too often we aren’t willing to pay the price to get or keep the things we want. 

We’re not willing to make a disciplined choice to reach our goal.

We’re not willing to keep a promise we make to ourselves to get something we really want.

We’re not willing to invest in a coach that will help us get healthier, happier and improve the quality of our lives. 

What if an investment in yourself – a financial investment or even an investment of time, energy or discipline – had the power to change your entire life?

Let me be very clear: it does. It does have the power to change your life. 

There are countless investments that can change your life if you commit to the process of change & stop making excuses & exceptions. 

The FLFT can be one of those investments.

Yes, it’s $497.
Yes, it’s 12 weeks.
Yes, it’s happening in the midst of Halloween & Thanksgiving.

But the skills you’ll build in the 12 weeks and the awareness & effort you’ll bring have the power to make you happier, healthier, more confident and more in control of every area of your life. 

Registration closes tomorrow. If you’re on the fence, it’s time to make your choice. 

We kick off on Sunday October 1st so now is your chance to be a part of it! I really hope to get a chance to work with you this fall! It can absolutely change your life!

After a really rough day yesterday, I made it to the gym today. I’m feeling pretty sick to my stomach but I knew my body needed to move & work. While I’m on the injectable hormones, I’m supposed to avoid high impact activities like running and jumping. Go figure today’s workout called for running & double unders. No worries though, I let my coach know what is up and modified.

5 Rounds for Time:

14 cal Airdyne bike

8 cals ski erg

9 squat snatch

I didn’t want to start & I didn’t want to push through all 5 rounds, but I was so glad when I did! I’m going to keep listening to my body and focusing more on quality of movement than intensity.

On the food front:

I’m really happy that I’ve been able to eat despite feeling sick. After this morning’s workout I had my cabbage salad bowl (half the cabbage) with walnuts, eggs, bacon and Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo.

A few hours later I snacked on some of the pork rinds I got from Thrive Market. I got the Jalapeno Cheddar ones from 4505 Meats.

I definitely prefer not to snack, but I’m finding it helps a bit with my nausea. I also had some of the salted macadamia nuts I got in my Thrive Market order.

Dinner will be crazy simple: an omelet with bacon & goat cheese. I love simple.

In October 2019, our relationship with Thrive Market changed. They decided to put their marketing dollars in avenues outside of podcasting but we still think they’re a good choice if you’re looking to save money on health & personal care products.
