•RESET BUTTON - How to Push it and MAKE IT STICK


Every so often we get caught letting our guard down.
Sometimes it takes a hit to get those hands back up.

Sometimes you can catch yourself and get back on track right away.
Sometimes you're laid flat out. Unable to breathe.

Catch your breathe. Get some Rest.
Now Get Up.
Dust off,
Assess your injuries.
RESET! 

Wash yourself clean 
I'll meet you in the WAR ROOM.
It's time to put a plan together.
It's about to go DOWN! I need to make sure your Ready?


Where is your War Room?
Your Dining Room Table and a Cup of Coffee?
The Library and an Adderall?
The Solitude of Church?
A Long Drive?
30 Minutes on the Stairmaster?


FIND YOUR MOTIVATION
download music - iTunes
watch motivational videos - YouTUBE / Movie Theatre / Seminars
meet inspiring people - Facebook / Instagram

try to surround yourself with motivating people - BRANCH OUT
Are you going to be motivated by drunk people at the bar? Maybe? Maybe there is a hot ass chick there who will make you want to push harder to get her. You might have a better chance of meeting her at the gym.
GO SOMEWHERE NEW - Pick a new sport every weekend
DO SOMETHING YOUR AFRAID OF
TAKE A RISK 
GET LOST
Once you find what your MOTIVATION, get back on the track you were on and use your new tools to make that path easier.


If you path is totally F'd - sometimes you need to get out.
I understand that as well. Thats why a proper assessment goes really deep.
I used to joke about it, but my job as a personal trainer for over 12 years felt many times like the job of a psychiatrist. I would hear EVERYTHING. 
Sometimes that would be funny, sad, insightful, or scary.
I learned ways to help in a continually growing set of scenarios.

Mentally? Do you need to wait until MONDAY? The Beginning of the MONTH?
After NEW YEAR?
We are all procrastinators and procrastinators miss opportunities.

I want you to learn to take advantage of opportunities.
Snatch ALL OF THEM UP!!!!
And keep grabbing and keep grabbing until you are having good things come at you LEFT and RIGHT!
Just keep throwing those lines out until they start biting and when they do, you buy better lines and get bigger fish.


Fix one thing at a time. 
As you see an OPPORTUNITY to make something better, DO IT! 

FIND YOUR SUPPORT TEAM WRITE DOWN THEIR NAMES
These are people on the same mission as you.
Try not to alienate those not on this one. They may be joining you on a future ride :)
Warning - This may create jealousy of those who would like more of your attention.
Try to achieve balance. Living healthy doesn't mean you can't be around those that aren't. It just means you must be stronger when around these people.

Learn to take pride that you are an inspiration to others 
who most often will admit they just needed a good role model. 
Some people don't have the same environment or network.

Be that person who encourages those who are just started all the way to those who just need that final push to make it all the way.

I myself spend countless years of my life trying to do it all by myself.
Once I found the humbleness to ask for help a few times (and receive it)
it becomes easier to open up until you are able to help others.
Then its all a chain reaction of the blossoming of something great.
HUGE AND AMAZING THINGS CAN BE CREATED when the collective efforts are focused on a common goal.

FIND YOUR COMMON GOAL and FIND YOUR ALLIES
