It’s spring! (Don’t celebrate yet.) – The winter is cold but spring’s warmth will inevitably come. – The night is dark but the morning sunlight will inevitably come. – Times may be tough but easier ones will inevitably come. – Everything in nature, even our lives, has a rhythm and season. – Don’t get discouraged by the cold, the dark, or the toughness. – Accept that things will be as they are–you can’t fight nature–and do everything you can to stay warm, in light, and in the game. – Just #neverstopstepping and #berelentless

How much do you sit? (And does it really kill?) – Yes. – And I was recently honored to speak about it at UBS. – A meta analysis of 13 studies found that sitting 8 hours a day is just as risky as smoking or being obese. – And…the same study found that just an hour of moderate exercise a day can offset this risk. – But you don’t get off that easy… because another study found that 10 hours a day of sitting still indicates damage to heart tissue (troponjns in blood), and yet another found that it thins the part of the brain necessary for memory – the medial temporal lobe – something that is associated with cognitive decline, #dementia and #Alzheimers! – And even if it doesn’t kill you, it will still “kill:” sitting a lot will wreak havoc on your body—from your neck to your shoulders and your back. – I’ll post on how to remedy the orthopedic aches and pains soon, but in the meantime, stand up! (Just drink a lot of water…it’ll force you to get up, I promise 🚰🚽😂)

Have you ever given up on anything? – I have. – I actually only gave up once that I can remember. But knowing that I did stung so badly afterwards that I swore I’d never do it again. – Turns out quitting once can actually be the greatest way to ensure you never quit again. – Have you heard of Florence May Chadwick? – She was the first woman to swim the English Channel in both directions, setting a time record each time. – In 1952, Florence attempted to swim the 26 miles between Catalina Island and the California coastline. As she began, she was flanked by small boats that watched for sharks and were prepared to help her if she got hurt or grew tired. After about 15 hours a thick fog set in. Florence began to doubt her ability, and she told her mother, who was in one of the boats, that she did not think she could make it. She swam for another hour before asking to be pulled out, unable to see the coastline due to the fog. As she sat in the boat, she found out she had stopped swimming **just one mile away from her destination.** Two months later, she tried again. The same thick fog set in, but she succeeded in reaching Catalina. – You never know if you’re inches or a mile away from your destination, so #nevergiveup!

WHAT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED, FOCUSED OR CENTERED? — 515 by 14…ish…ok, 13.5…but really 13 and a miss on 14. 😬 — In the midst of launching an insurtech company, running a design & construction firm, and of course holding the reigns at my club…this isn’t “easy for me.” (I love when people say “Oh, but it’s easy for you.” 😒) — No, it’s not easy. — What keeps me motivated? Honestly, thinking of the future — irreversible — sting of knowing what I could’ve done, but chose not to. — Workouts, business, life — same mentality applies. 👊 — We get one ride on this rollercoaster and we don’t know when it ends. 🎢 — I can’t imagine there’s anything worse than realizing you forgot to keep your eyes open, be present, and enjoy the ride. — (I have been told this is the whole #mementomori #stoic concept.) — So what keeps YOU motivated?

Do you HAVE TIME or MAKE TIME? ⏳Let me know by dropping a comment below! — I constantly get yelled at for “giving away” my time volunteering to be a mentor for both the @sbagov Minority- and Women-owned business program and @entrepreneursorg program for sub-$1,000,000 businesses trying to get to the seven-figure promised land. — No, I don’t “have” time…but I MAKE time. — It’s amazing what happens when you commit to a purpose. How may of have heard: ❌ I don’t have time to work out ❌ I don’t have time to start my own business ❌ I don’t have time to go back to school — For every one of those who don’t “have time,” I’m also certain you know someone who MADE TIME.

I was going to post my #topnine of 2018, but seriously, what a year. And those top pictures or moments can sure be deceiving! — For me 2018 was more downs than ups including deaths in my immediate family; heart stuff; visits to the ER; a parasite; business setbacks — the list goes on. But you know what? I’M STILL HERE M*THERF*CKER! …AND SO ARE YOU!! — So what’s my plan for 2019? A steady, #relentless march forward, whistling as much as I can along the way. (My grandfather, RIP, was a master at this and wouldn’t want it any other way.) — You can’t control your luck, but you can always control your forward momentum (RELENTLESSNESS — not resilience) AND your internal environment (happiness isn’t a “choice,” as many erroneously say, but COMPOSURE is). — So here I find myself wrapping up this challenging year with my favorite person, at my favorite place, after doing my favorite thing. (You and your dirty mind — I meant a workout!) — Wishing you composure and relentlessness in 2019! — “Stop being resilient. Be relentless.”
