Weekly Workout: A couple women, Rucking, Bench Press, Double under and Hang Cleans.

Most people make fitness far more difficult than it needs to be. It’s a lifestyle, a marathon so to speak. Unfortunately, a lot of people have turned it into something it isn’t, and they prey on peoples insecurities to sell them a product.

The truth is that if you do something every day, and do it in a progressively more challenging format you will inevitably reach your goals. Consistency and discipline are the keys to everything.

How to be the best man you can be: Be critical of yourself and increase the accountability in your life

How to be the best man you can be: Be critical of yourself and increase the accountability in your life

The first step to becoming the best man that you can be is having self-awareness. You have to understand who you are, where you come from and what your inner code is.

If you don’t do this every single day, then it will be hard to become a better man.

The Epic Battle that is your life: Discipline is the only path to overcoming anything

I saw an ad yesterday for something about unlocking the power of your mind to achieve and do anything. This ad said you could make a million dollars if you just figured out how to unlock your brain.

Why every man needs a mission: How to get focused, recharged and back on the front-lines

Why every man needs a mission: How to get focused, recharged and back on the front-lines

I don't talk about this much, and have really only spoken of it once or twice.

When I got out of the military in 2005 it was very difficult for me to adapt back in to civilian life, and to this day I still struggle.

I couldn't find a job for months, and the skills that I had gained were of no value to most employers. They didn't care that I had served my country, or that I had made E-5 in 4 years. They didn't care about my good conduct medals, or that I had supervised a watch center or strike intelligence analysis cell.

My skills and knowledge were overlooked.

Maybe it was me.

Lately, though I have had a few things on my mind.

3 things actually:

How to Live Like a Martian: Lessons from Mark Watney the Botanist

First. I love movies, good ones anyway.

Second. This one is full of practical applicable wisdom for everyday life.

The movie is about a team of astronauts that have gone to Mars for research. They get caught in a windstorm or dust-storm (Which by the way scientists say could never happen.)
