Success vs. Excellence

Success vs. Excellence

It’s easy to get obsessed with the idea of success and achievement (I know I do). We get swept up in striving to be the best we can be, and that naturally causes us to compare ourselves with others.

I’ve written before about how achievements are a poor substitute for genuine self-worth, but today I want to point you toward a related discussion on a podcast between a group that I regularly following, GMB Podcast. In this episode Jarlo and his friend Rolando Garcia, who’s years as a fitness manager for high-end gyms has given him some very interesting insights about […] Read more

Congrats Ebeth and Tyler!!!

Congrats Ebeth and Tyler!!!

A Night To Remember …

Saturday one of my dearest friends AKA Ebeth said “I Do” to a wonderful gentlemen/CPM member Tyler Ahlers.

The Day was beautiful and had so many wonderful elements that really made me reminisce.

There are moments in life where time stands still and you realize this will be a moment that will never be forgotten.

There is so much leading up to this big day and the day is just the beginning of the “rest of your life together”.

I looked at the two love birds and realized how young, naive, and raw they were in their relationship. They […] Read more

CPM Fitness Sandwich Ideas …

CPM Fitness Sandwich Ideas …

A common love for people especially over the lunch hour is the “sandwich”. I remember my grandpa used to literally (and probably still does) turn anything and everything possible into a sandwich. It is amazing how many wonderful things you can do with just two slices of bread. Well it is also amazing how much you can do with ingredients other than bread and still get that delicious sandwich taste and feel.

I have given you some variety to experiment with different ways to make the perfect lunch time treat.

#1 Coconut Wraps – These are great treats and taste so […] Read more

Words are Powerful… Thoughts are even More!

Words are Powerful… Thoughts are even More!

I read this Bible verse the other day and it got me thinking…

All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances].
– Proverbs 15:15

I like to say, “Where the mind goes, the man (or woman) follows.” In other words, positive thoughts are precursors to a positive life. On the other hand, anxious thoughts and negative expectations set us up for miserable lives.

Many people think they cannot control their thoughts, but they can. Like anything else, it takes practice. What you […] Read more
