Confidence (6)

My Success Principles

Nine years ago, I made this video while driving to jury duty.  

In it, I talk about my success principles.  The interesting thing is that they remain true today.  

And I can trace my path back to following these principles day in and day out for the past decade.

See if there is anything that  you can pick up from this short clip, enjoy!

P.S-We will be up and running soon.  Some of you have been reaching out about the annual Fat Shredder contest.  We will be doing it, and are aiming to start in the beginning of June.  More details to come!

The Most Beautiful Quote of All-Time

While down at the creek on the same day as when we had the puking incident (see yesterday’s email), I was talking to Brax.

As I’ve mentioned, he loves all-things army, navy, marines, etc.

And as dad’s do, I’ve been painting the vision for him of how great he is going to be as a soldier one day.  Yes, we fantasize about him being a SEAL (Devon disagrees). 

Well, I was asking him about what he pictures and all that and he looks at me and says, ‘Dad, I just want to be a kid and stay with my family.’


The wisdom of kids is so beautiful and in that case he was my teacher.

I think we can all ponder that for a few seconds and see how beautiful it was.

P.S.-If you’d like to work with us and have the best Coaching in the world, before this craziness is behind us, then check out the opportunity below.  The first round of clients are crushing it and they’d be the first to tell you  that it’s the best investment you  could make in yourself, particularly given the current climate…

1-Last week I opened the doors to the second Panda Challenge, which will be starting May 11th.  10 of the 12 spots are already taken and it looks like this will be the trend going forward for this Challenge as it’s one of a kind and dare I say, the most effective ‘Nutrition Challenge’ in the world (mark my words, you heard it here first). If you’d like to find out more info and at least throw your name in the ring for me to decide if you’re a good fit, then go here:

Check it Out!

Back in early March, Cori Burd came in to interview for one of our 6 sweepstakes spots.

He was timid and lacked confidence.  

Believe me, he’d agree with that assessment.

Well, he was selected.  

And because of circumstance and the unforeseen global lockdown, the others had to put their experience on hold.

Cori though, he didn’t flinch.  In fact, he ramped up his efforts.

You have two types during this.  

Those that turned into ‘Homer Simpson’ and those that saw it as an opportunity to challenge and grow into a superior version of themselves.  

Cori chose the latter.

The man is down damn near 40 pounds.  He could have waited and began after things were back to normal.

But Cori knew that if you wait until all the lights are green to GO, then you’ll die without ever having really lived.

Let Cori’s inspired action inspire you to grow.

1- The Fat Shredder is coming!  Realistically it’ll probably start at some point in the backside of May and run until the 4th of July weekend.  Here’s all you have to do for now: start thinking of your teammates. Each team will have at least a member, non-member and one woman (teams of 3).  It’s gonna be epic and just what we all need at that time:) 


2-I am opening the doors to the second Panda Challenge, which will be starting within the next 3 weeks.  The first 12 ‘Panda’s’ are crushing it and dare I say, all 12 are on track to hit their 45-day goals! Yes, I only take 12 because of the high level of Coaching each client receives.  5 of the spots are already taken from people that just missed the cut for the first Panda Challenge. If you’d like to find out more info and at least throw your name in the ring for me to decide if you’re a good fit, then go here:

It’s a time for new beginnings and I thought a great way for you to be inspired to have your best year yet was to see one of our recent member of the months: Sonal.


Sonal started with us about a year ago and she was looking to gain some strength, a great workout and also more energy, confidence, etc.  And achieve that she has!


You can watch Sonal’s inspiration here:

How To Increase Your Confidence

I started lifting weights back in 1995 because of high school football.  I began to take it seriously in 1997 because of a lack of confidence.

I wanted to feel better, to be bigger and stronger and I hoped that it would carry over to other areas of my life.

The plan worked and continues to work.

But, you don’t need to be an iron addict to increase your confidence.

Something I do every single night is called ‘strategic confidence’.

I write down my 3 big wins for the day.  They are usually not these HUGE things, they are small things that I would probably overlook if I didn’t take a few minutes to think about them.

Your brain is hardwired for the negative, all brains are.  Confidence is one of your two greatest assets that you must cultivate and protect.

Begin by focusing on 1-3 wins each night or morning.

It’s really that simple.

Confidence and Failure Go Hand in Hand

When I was in high school, I used to take and chart 500 jump shots per day.  I still have those old charts at my parents house somewhere.

Even after doing this for 2 years, in a game situation, I wouldn’t average above a 50% shooting percentage.

You might be thinking that that was a lot of work without too much payoff.  You’d be wrong.

Yes, failure is built into the ‘game’ but through that failure and all those thousands of shots taken, I became extremely confident in my shot, which carried over to other aspects in my life.

If you want to grow your confidence, you have to be ready to fail, it’s the only way.  In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I discuss this very concept.  You can take a listen here:
