CPM Stop and Smell the Roses …

CPM Stop and Smell the Roses …

This weekend I got to go home to family in LA.

It was a much needed vacation with all the elements that made it a perfect 10!

The Weekend started off with a walk on the beach,some delicious food from my fav, and some much needed mom and sister time.

I got to experience some of the delicious eatz that LA has to offer (thanks to True Foods, Whole Foods, Matcha Bar, Bristol Farms, and Trader Joes yes I am slightly with grocery stores).

We got shopping, chatting, relaxation and it was just what the Doctor ordered!

Sunday was my favorite day, we went to […] Read more

Waiting Can Be Evil…

Waiting Can Be Evil…

This happened to me last week… (true story; pic below)

“I’m going to wait for now. It all makes sense but want to make sure I’m fully committed before I get started.”

My response…

“I hear ya buddy. Allow me to pass on a quote and thought about waiting….

Famed philosopher and orator Edmund Burke once said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” It’s true. Doing nothing is easy, but it’s also dangerous. Where there is no opposition to evil, evil will multiply.

Evil could be injury, lack of progress, de-motivation, etc…

Food is Medicine

Food is Medicine

During my first six months, my mom described me as a happy baby. I did not cry often, I was a good sleeper and not too picky when it came to food. At 9-months old, I took my first steps. Then one day, instead of walking, I dropped to the floor and could not move. All I would do is cry. The Pediatrician performed a thorough check-up and decided to admit me to hospital due to 104-degree temperature. No explanation was ever provided even after 2-weeks of testing. Then one day I miraculously started to walk again. The next episode […] Read more

Resolutions are Easy… Why is Goal Setting so Tough??

Resolutions are Easy… Why is Goal Setting so Tough??

As Peter Drucker said,

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

People will spend more time planning their vacations then they will planning their 2018 goals and dreams.

If we could achieve want we wanted in our lives by literally writing it down and reminding ourselves daily, why wouldn’t we?!?

I’ve heard some push back about the goal board at the gym(s).

Why can’t we just write a simple goal down?
Why do we need to add all the other stuff on the list?

I personally struggle setting goals for myself too. Even though I’m really good at being disciplined and raising expectations for […] Read more

Mental FITness Tips…

Mental FITness Tips…

It’s not rocket science to know what it takes to get and stay in shape. Eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, varying the movements, time and intensities, getting 8 plus hours of sleep and you are on your way to optimal physical health.

Staying Mentally FIT is just as if not more important than staying physically FIT. Below are the top 5 tips to staying mentally FIT.

1.  Be a constant optimist full of possibility.
I like to call this, “ABP”. Always be […] Read more

New Year… New CPM Goal Board…

New Year… New CPM Goal Board…

78% of all New Year’s resolutions (i.e. wannabe goals) fail and most people quit their goals after the 3rd week in January.

Why is this?

I feel most people think that if they simply write something down for some reason it will ‘magically’ happen. And if you don’t think it will ‘magically’ happen they sure act like it will because they simply do not do what it takes to achieve the goals they wrote down.

Perspective on Goal Setting/Goal Achieving

Disciplines are greater than resolutions, and by a wide margin. Goals are wonderful. You cannot hit a target that you cannot see. But most […] Read more

A CPM Year in Review for 2017 ….

A CPM Year in Review for 2017 ….

Today is the first day of 2018 and before looking to year ahead, I wanted to reflect on the year I left behind. Every year I do a Year in Review from the Great Darren Hardy.

The workbook is designed to get very concise goals in different categories such as Physical, Mental, finical, Spiritual, Relationships, etc .. followed by the top 10 Happenings from 2017.

When writing these 10 things I looked back on how fast this year went, and how many things I had forgotten I accomplished.

I am always so eager to find out “what’s next” that I forget to take […] Read more

Could taking risks be the missing ingredient to our happiness?

Could taking risks be the missing ingredient to our happiness?

I was recently asked to define my risks for 2018. This has been a bit challenging as I realize most of my life has been about playing it safe. I like to stay in one lane. I don’t like a lot of interruption and like to take things at my pace. Taking risks is scary. My mind immediately goes to why would I let myself become so vulnerable? After doing a little research I have come to the conclusion that every decision we make has a consequence and is not 100% certain. We risk everything without even knowing it. So […] Read more

2018 Groundhog Year? Or? Pull the Damn Trigger?

2018 Groundhog Year? Or? Pull the Damn Trigger?

Every New Year you can have the same year over and over again. Based on the stats… 78% of people quit their New Year’s Resolutions by the 3rd week of January.

You can find yourself in a routine where things get really comfortable, where things are certain and predictable, where there is very little stress—and where you are not challenged to grow.

This is to accept comfort and mediocrity over growth and reaching your potential.

Life can feel really slow in the moment but will move really fast when you look back. And the older we get the faster it moves.

To this I’d […] Read more

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.
