I remember looking around and seeing the best players in the county all lined up next to me on the baseline. Guys that I just read about in the newspaper getting ready to partake in the same tryout as Cornell Thomas the Junior Varsity bench player.
My friend asked me to come to a tryout with […]
Im not sure what age I was, but I distinctly remember my mom asking me a very important question. She asked, “If so and so (insert friends name here) jumped off a bridge would you do it too”?
I remember wondering if my mom thought I was crazy before I quickly answered no. What I didn’t […]
Will you wake up early and stay late? Will you sacrifice what you like to accomplish what you love? Will you stop making excuses?
Will you put your dream first and your doubts second? Will you look in the mirror every day and believe in the reflection staring back at you?
When I wake up in the morning I wait. It usually happens about an hour or so after I post my morning quotes. I hear a little rumbling from down the hall, and then I hear a faint voice that say’s “da da”. I stay in my bed for a little bit longer because I know the routine. A bottle has to be made, and an over anxious dog has to be let out before I can find the person behind this voice.
As mommy and I do rock, paper, scissors to choose who actually has to bear the cold and take the dog out I hear the voice again, this time it says daddy.
Back in the days there was a toy called a chia pet. You folks that grew up in the 80’s and 90’s know exactly what I’m talking about.
Im not sure if it was a sheep or goat but the premise of this toy was to pour water on it, and then sit back and watch the fur grow.
Yes I know to all you young folks this doesn’t seem like much fun (and it wasn’t) but that’s not my point. With the chia pet all you had to do is add water and all the work was done.
I remember being in some grade reading some story about a guy on a horse yelling something about British people. At that time I had no idea or to be honest in learning anything about Paul Revere. I would find out later on in life that he wasn’t the only one ringing the alarm about the British.
The difference between him and the other guy was people listened when he talked. He was part of a million social clubs and organizations so he was in the words of Malcolm Gladwell a connector.
Which one do you prefer? If you’re like the millions of people in the world frantically eating their “last” donut today before they start fresh tomorrow, I already know your answer. You see tomorrow morning every fitness gym in America will have a few extra visitors.
Fear can be funny sometimes. Not in a I can’t believe this bear is still chasing me kind of way, but how it tricks our mind into making even the smallest molehill into a mountain.
For whatever reason that molehill for me was doing an assisted handstand. I throw in assisted just so you know how easily I was fooled into thinking this particular feet was life threatening.
I first tried while working out in the gym with two very brave workout partners avoiding kicks in the face to hold my legs up. Needless to say I wasn’t super successful on my first attempt.
