Essentialism: the Disciplined Pursuit of Less with Greg McKeown

For most of your life you’ve been told that you can have it all. You can do everything and be everything. But that’s bullshit. And trying to do and have it all will get you nowhere. It might even ruin your life. To have more happiness and success you need to do less. You need to say “no” more often. You need to be okay with “missing out.” It’s all about identifying the vital few and separating them from the trivial many. That’s the way of the “essentialist.” If you’ve followed me for any length of time you have heard… continue reading.

Structure = Freedom: Rules For Life

The ability to do what you want, when you want, how you want. Freedom. That’s what we’re going after, and it’s why I recommend everyone cut out negativity, useless chores, and soul-sucking relationships. When you eliminate clutter, you create freedom. But too much freedom can be crippling. A life without rules opens you up to distraction and inefficiency. Tons of free time lulls you into the idea that you’ll just slip into the life if your dreams.  You can avoid that complacency by building structure and accountability… continue reading.

How to Build Confidence, Unlock Your Full Potential, and Live a Fulfilled Life

“We live in a society that’s the same as waking up on Las Vegas Blvd.” – Mike DeSanti This is the age of opportunity. It has never been easier to connect with people and live life on your own terms. But with that freedom comes distraction, endless stimuli, and an onslaught of  requests that try to pull you in thousands of directions at once. Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, text messages, emails, huge billboards, loud advertising, hacks, tips, tricks. All of them clamoring for your attention. All of them ready to steal you focus and throw you off track. How… continue reading.

How to Dominate Your Day

What’s up, Renegade?! It’s Monday motherfucking morning and I am amped way up. I’m ready to slay, kill, and crush this week. You too? Let’s dominate together. I LOOOOOVE me some Monday mornings. Ya know why? Cuz everyone else hates them. They whine and bitch and dread the day and week ahead. But Renegades don’t live or think like everybody else. Nor do we give a shit what anyone else says or does. We’re always holding ourselves to a higher standard and separating from the pack. The first way we do that is with our morning routine.

Gettin’ Diesel With Smitty

“You’re a product of your experience.” You always hear that phrase as it applies to personal development. But it also applies to every other aspect of your life, especially your career. When I was coming up in the strength & conditioning world, I cut my teeth next to guys who spent thousands of hours on the gym floor. They coached athletes for 12+ hours. Every day. For years. I did the same and it made me into the coach I am today. One who cares about nothing but what works in the real world. Not what some study says or what some… continue reading.

Gymnastics Training, Building Confidence & Boosting Productivity

Personal development starts up top. Getting your mind right has to be your first step in becoming your strongest self. But it’s the last thing people wanna focus on. Everyone wants the plan before becoming someone who will actually take action on it. I can give any one of you a proven path to build muscle, get ripped, and live the life of your dreams. But most people will never do anything with it because they never got their mind right. Only the few people who transform their mindset will see results. First, you gotta prioritize your mental and physical health. 30 minutes of daily exercise… continue reading.

Why You Shouldn’t Go To College, Own a House, or Buy Stocks

Go to college to get the degree to land the job to make the money to buy the house to retire early to live a life of comfort and security. That’s the “American Dream” flavored kool-aid we’ve been drinking for the last 70 years. In ’69, this was a sure fire way to live the good life. But what happens when you blindly follow that path today? Most of the time, you end up stuck. Stuck in a boring town that’s not as cool as it used to be. Rooted down by a house that’s too big of a pain to sell. Working a job you’re… continue reading.

Real World Self Defense w/ Tim Larkin

Why do you train? Is it to look a certain way, or does your motivation go past the superficial rewards? It better. As a man, you have an obligation to build the physical and mental strength to protect yourself and those you love. It’s easy to think that as long as you’re big, strong, and jacked, you’re prepared to defend yourself in most situations. Toss some martial arts training and you’re going above and beyond what’s necessary. I used to think that way, too. But after speaking with today’s guest, Tim Larkin, I realize it’s not enough. Tim is the world’s… continue reading.
