Avoid The Christmas Chaos CPM …

Avoid The Christmas Chaos CPM …

It is very easy with the chaos around us to loose site on what is important.

They always say that in order to succeed and take things in your life to the next level one must be thankful for the things you have already been blessed with in your life.

The things that come to my mind is:

FAITH – Everything we do or receive comes from the power from the Lord. Life is a wonderful filled with up’s and down’s that make everything you do worth it. Having faith in GOD makes anything possible. And it is a wonderful relationship to have.

CPM Dare to Compare Yourself to YOURSELF!

CPM Dare to Compare Yourself to YOURSELF!

For most of us, we are so focused on what everyone around us is doing i.e. people concerned about looking like others in the gym, people having better jobs than you, smarter, better looking, healthier etc….

But what about comparing ourselves to us???

What mattered (and this was much more powerful) was hitting the goals I created for myself. If you look at life, there are people who become millionaires at 26, and then there are people who never do…

Why is it that people don’t become FIT?

In a country like ours, with the opportunities that we have… Why is it that so few people reach their health and fitness goals? Why is America getting fatter every year? Why are more and more people signing up at gyms but ending up quitting after a month […] Read more
