Go, No Go …

A woman, the more curious she is about her face, is commonly the more careless about her house-

Dammit Jim!  We have been hoodwinked again … I stayed up all night watching the Mars Landing Thingy and this morning?  My motivation to go out and achieve great things has vanished into thin air!

Does this story sound familiar to you?  Ever turned the last page  of a great book (Born to Run/Fifty Shades of Suck) and immediately want to go out and do great things after your Motivation Meter is pegged at ten?

Sadly, True and lasting inspiration cannot come from outside sources, no matter how many times you watch Rocky!!!  True inspiration must take place within a very deep place inside all of us.  This is one of those: You will know it when you see it sort of things.  The kind of  inspiration that propels you to be courageous, powerful and inspiring to not only yourself but those around you as well.

True inspiration is deep inside you right now!  Problem is we fail to see and feel this in a book or movie.  Reward yourself this week and do some soul-searching … The answer is staring at you in the mirror!

To be frugal is to return before straying-

Well you have done it once again.  You have wasted yet another splendid week reading the ramblings of CultFit HQ.  Bravo, dear reader(s)!

Like looking at the glorious pictures of others lives is extremely easy and addicting.  The hedonic treadmill is awfully easy to hop onto as well.  Slowly, each and everyday we begin to take our current lives for granted.  Always trying to reach the next level of fulfillment.  Try to understand that the hedonic treadmill is not a necessary part of living life.  Can you keep a secret?  It’s perfectly acceptable to enjoy what you have, right now – at this very moment.  Look around you … That is enough!

**While we take a moment to water our parched and withering flowers outside.  Punch “Hedonic Treadmill” into your Google Machine.**

Let’s Go Explore the Wonderful World Around Us!!!

That Was Me – I Did This …

Randy, you know, when I want advice on cheeseburgers or not wearing a shirt, you’re the person I’ll come to-

Now that you have  prepared for any challenge in your way.  You can’t wait to go out and prove yourself to the world!

Today you are making history!!! Today is a day for the ages.  What you achieve today is a story you’ll tell your kids and grand kiddo’s over and over (nauseously) just so see their eyes widen when you say, “That was me!  I did this!

Take a moment to think of all the great first moments in sports history: The very first Olympics.  Tom Brady’s first touchdown pass, Your first pair of $125.00 Lululemon yoga pants and Tim Tebow running shirtless in the rain.  What you achieve today will be right there, the pinnacle of all of these great moments.

Completely off topic.  Here is our solution to the empty seat(s) mess at the London Summer Olympics:
