New Month …. New Goals!

New Month …. New Goals!

We all have goals that we want to attain.. but how do we put the goals that we write down on paper into action?

Why do we continue to tell ourselves what we can’t do instead of focusing on what we can and are doing?

I have been really reading a lot about mindset lately. It has always fascinated me on why and how some people can push themselves to limits unimaginable and others sit back and say “I could never do that”.

It is just as easy to train our brain so why do we lose focus on what is important and […] Read more

Time Ticks On — and — Do-Over’s @CPMFITness

The universe is set up so that every day is a do-over. All you have to do is decide to change, and you can change in that instant… WOW! That’s an extraordinarily powerful idea. It’s extraordinary in that it empowers you to become whatever you wish to be in that very second, as long as you are willing to act in accordance with that decision.

And it’s a dangerous idea, too. The missed opportunities can never be recovered.

Type 1… I’ll Stop Procrastinating Tomorrow

The danger in the great power of starting over is that you have lost time, time that can never be recovered. You […] Read more

Mindset is Key Especially At CPMFITness

Mindset is Key Especially At CPMFITness

Mindset is one of the key ingredients to your success or your demise!

Wikipedia’s definition of mindset is:

A mindset is a set of assumptions, methods, or notations held by one or more people or groups of people who is so established that it creates a powerful incentive within these people or groups to continue to adopt or accept prior behaviors, choices, or tools.

In my many years of training I have seen people accomplish tasks that they never believed they could and I have seen people never reach their full potential all do to the way they chose to view their goals.
