Escaping Poverty, Beating Cancer (2x), & Living the Dream with Alwyn Cosgrove

If you’re lucky you have one or two great mentors, teachers or coaches who change your life forever. I’ve been fortunate enough to have a handful of them. But, perhaps none have been as impactful as my great friend, Alwyn Cosgrove. Alwyn grew up poor in Glasgow, Scotland. Fighting was essential for survival, so he got a black belt and became a nation champion in Tae Kwon Do. He later became a strength coach and moved to the US, which is how we met at a training workshop in 1996. For the 20 years since he’s been one… continue reading.

How to Overcome Fear with Dr. Srini Pillay – Episode 142

Everybody has fears. They cause us anxiety and keep us awake at night. Most of these fears are imagined. They aren’t real. Mark Twain said, “I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.” Those who succeed in life and find happiness are those who can overcome their fears.  They can separate real from imagined. They face the fear and move forward. Those who cannot will remain stagnant, frustrated and crippled. This is not the life you want. In this episode, I sit down with the author of Life Unlocked, and… continue reading.

How to Dominate Your Morning

People hate mornings. They spend the first hour of the day hitting the snooze button, whining, pissing, moaning, and dreading the day ahead. You can choose to let your morning be like that, and walk around like a human raisin, shriveled up and empty of any inspiration, presence, and purpose. Or you can rise above the masses of mediocrity and take ownership over that first hour. You can choose to put yourself in the mindset to dominate, kick ass, and make the world around you better. You… continue reading.

The #1 Skill of Happy, Successful People

As a kid I had zero self-confidence or communication skills. I was super shy and socially awkward. I never thought I was good enough. I doubted myself constantly. I was scared of my own shadow and constantly lived in fear. This lasted for more than half my life, well into my late twenties and early thirties. Then I realized something had to change. Epictetus, the great stoic philosopher, asked, “How long can you afford to put off who you really want to be?” For me, the answer was, “Not one second longer.” So I set out on a mission to… continue reading.

How to Build Great Relationships, Make Your Abs Pop, and Achieve Life Mastery

I’m a firm believer in taking lessons from sports and applying them to life success. Some of the most profound life lessons come from athletes like Walter Payton, Mike Tyson, and Bruce Lee. You often hear coaches tell their players to work on their weaknesses. I’ve told plenty of my athletes to work on their’s. Does the same principle apply to the rest of your life? No. Working on your weaknesses can be an enormous waste of time, especially in business. Of course, if you’re a mean, miserable person, that’s a weakness that you need to work on. But if you suck… continue reading.

F Your Trophy

Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals made me smile this morning. I saw on Instagram that he came out against the participation trophy. He told little leaguers that there should only be first place trophies. I smiled, pumped my fist and said, “F*CK YES!” There needs to be more of this. We need to fight the pussifcation and softening of future generations. The participation trophy is making kids soft and weak. It gives them a sense of entitlement. And does nothing to prepare them for the real world. continue reading.

Why you should NOT work out

You want to lose fat, build muscle and look sexy at the beach.  So, you gotta work out, right? Screw that. You do NOT need to workout. You need to train. There’s a huge difference. Have you ever watched a dude at the gym walk from one machine to the next? He’s got a puzzled look on his face, clearly trying to figure out what the hell to do next? That’s working out. I know you’ve seen this group of guys at the gym. They go from flat bench, to incline bench, to dumbbell bench, to machine bench… And, finally,… continue reading.

Do These to Become Bulletproof

I love loaded carries and include them in every training program I design. There is nothing more functional than picking up something heavy and walking with it. It’s manly, hardcore, old school shit. Makes you feel like a badass. Especially when you’re doing them in a public gym where no one else would dream of doing such a thing. Loaded carries bulletproof your entire body from head to toe. Ankle, knee and hip stability is increased from loaded carries. Your toes, feet and abs get stronger. continue reading.
