Motivated.Life – My New Website

Hey there, I want to let you know that I just created a new website, called Motivated.Life. For most of my life (even as a little kid!) I would spend free time reading and learning about ways to improve the quality of my life. From self-development books, to video course to week-long seminars…I’ve invested a …

Dream – Motivational Video

This video, “Dream” by Mateusz M, has over 15 million views on Youtube and for good reason. Every now and then I browse YouTube for inspiration. This one is a gem. The music, words and video clips are not only highly motivating, they are inspiring. Film clips represented are from some of my favorite movies: Into …

Why I Left My Job to Travel The World

I’m writing this point to share my experience, in the hope that it helps other readers who are going through a similar situation make sense of it all. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to the decision for staying in or leaving a job, particularly one you care about. The decision must be made by each …

5 Tips for Setting Goals That Stick

I’ve heard the statistic thrown around that 80% of people never bother to set goals, and of the 20% that do, 70% fail. So we are talking about 20% goal setters with a 30% success rate. This means that only about 6% of the population proactively directs their life to keep it moving it in …

The Value in Hiring a Coach

This past weekend I decided to give downhill skiing a try. I skied a handful of times in high school, but that was almost 20 years ago. Since then, I have been a snow boarder and for the past 15 years or so, I’ve gotten out a handful of times a year. I also love …

3-Day Fruit Fast Recap

Earlier this week, as part of the 40 Days to Personal Revolution program, I did a 3-day fruit fast. As I love to eat fruits, I was really looking forward to this. I considered it more of a fruit feast than a fruit fast! The picture above shows the entire array of fruits that I …

Copper Canyon Ultramarathon 2011 Adventure & Race Report

I shouldn’t call this a race report since the objective was less about racing and more about experiencing the culture and the beauty of the Copper Canyon region of Mexico. Arriving at the starting point of the race involved 2 flights, a 2+ day ride in a van and an 18 mile rugged and hot …

Barefoot Running – Vibram Five Fingers Are Worth It

I’ve been a runner for the past 15 years. Over this time I’ve suffered countless injuries. Training for marathons and Ironman Triathlons can be tough on your body! Shin splints. Stress fractures.

Make Progress By Pushing Through

I love the science of fitness and weightlifting. In most cases, you spend a ton of effort and time to tire your body out, just so the last few moments of work can cause your body to grow. In weightlifting, it is only last few reps that cause your muscle to grow, everything else is …

Get Back in the Groove

I have a tendency to go to extremes. I set clear and sometimes audacious goals, achieve them (at at least give it a good attempt) and then frequently fall off the bandwagon a bit as I succumb to what I call the “post-goal blues.” When I raced triathlons, I found this “disease” to be common …

Expand Your Vocabulary

The unabridged Oxford English Dictionary contains over 600,000 words. The average native English speaker knows anywhere from 12-20,000 words depending on their level of education but only uses about 1/10th that amount in everyday speech. Shakespeare, a masterful communicator, used over 30,000 words in his works alone! There are so many ways to express emotions, …
