Don’t Fall Victim to the Holiday Mentality 

Using the Holiday Season as an excuse to justify complacency is disrespectful to the magic and power this time of year brings.
With December here there’s good vibes brought on by gratitude, love, generosity, friends, family, gift giving and holiday parties.
Unfortunately, hidden in plain sight amongst all of these great things also lies complacency, the killer of all things success.
Complacency over the holiday season is tough to identify because we’re distracted by holiday festivities and most of those around us are deviating off the path or lowering their own standards as well. But with the holiday season spanning over the course of 2 months, it can be crippling to enter a new year having ended the year with a loss.
The holiday season is not an excuse to stop working on achieving our goals. In fact, to really experience the magic of the holiday season, it should be the opposite; an excuse to step it up!
In episode 34, Chris focuses in on how the holidays can breed complacency. He provides some valuable perspective and challenges us to use the holiday season as an opportunity to go harder to put an exclamation point on 2019 and begin the New Year with some steam!

Stop Letting Yourself Off The Hook

Every year we all set new goals.
While most will state their intentions to accomplish more and do better, very few actually follow through by honoring the commitments they’ve made with themselves.
For one reason (excuse) or another society has become all to comfortable not keeping their word as it relates to the follow through of one’s goals, which has resulted in a wide spreading epidemic of mediocrity, frustration, anxiety and depression.
Self respect begins with honoring the commitments we make with ourselves and following through with what we say we’re going to do, regardless of what may stand in our path.
We MUST stop making excuses, stop letting ourselves off the hook when we fall short and stop justifying quitting just because so many people around us do!
We MUST develop the mentality of a wolf and stay clear of the sheep.
Tune in as Chris drills down on the significance of keeping your word, following through with the commitments you make to yourself and recognizing when you’ve fallen off track!

Success Starts With Your Physical Appearance

Like it or not, you are judged every day by how you look, dress and carry yourself.
Everyone who wants to crush it in life needs to put personal feelings aside and understand the relationship between our personal, physical appearance, and how it directly impacts success.
The way we look plays a significant role in our confidence, self esteem and self image, which influences the way we present ourselves to the outside world. It’s also the way we speak to the world about where our priorities lay without uttering a single word.
Here’s the truth, we all make judgments about each other based on our personal appearance, so it is important to think about what kind of image we want to project to the world.
Looking the part of success and maintaining a clean, healthy, neat appearance is one of the first steps towards feeling, and becoming successful. It’s also a very easy thing to do that produces an immediate impact!
In episode 28, Chris discusses the importance of prioritizing our appearance and how it not only shapes the way others view us, but more importantly, how we view ourselves!

The Art of Mental Toughness

People in today’s society have gotten soft. Everything is at our fingertips. In some cases we don’t have to lift a finger and our wish is our command.
What’s worse is our culture has trained us to take the easy way out. The fact of the matter is, we won’t see the change we want until we begin to better our mental toughness.
We all need to up our game when it comes to mental toughness. In this episode, we hit hard discussing why we should care about mental toughness and how to take our mental toughness to the next level.

Overcoming Adversity: The #1 Key To Success

Adversity is defined as difficulties and misfortune. Everyone can think of a time where you have gone through adversities.
It is easy to look for the easy way out of adversity. When life begins to push back, the knee jerk reaction for all of us is to find the fastest way to make the adversity go away. The truth is that we have to do the opposite! We must embrace adversity!
The adversity we face today is not to stop us. The adversity we face today is there to test us. To make sure we are ready for what is to come next.
In this episode we have a very special treat. Chris dives into a story you have never heard before. Today, Chris takes us back to the beginning and explains how the success he has today is because of the adversities he faced in his past.

Standards

You have to have standards to raise your quality of life. Standards are important in work, in fitness, and at home.
Many of us may have high standards we want to hold ourselves to but we let those standards go at the first sign of difficulty. Standards are always there regardless of what happens in life. Unfortunately, when we stray from our standards we are straying from the person we want to become.
Join us as Chris gets straight to the point and challenges each of us on the topic of the standards we hold for ourselves.
