Compete More than you Complain


next level mindsetDo you know why most people quit the game of life and settle? Because the calls go against them; life flags them for lost yardage; they commit turnovers from which they lose the zeal to recover. They look up at the scoreboard and realize they are behind on their dreams. Don’t let that be you! Stay in the game. It’s not winning the game, it’s how you play it. Compete more than you complain. You may be behind on your dreams but never get behind on your desire!

Three Reasons People Fail and What to Do About It

Why do people fail? Why do their dreams fail to take root? We’d like to believe that the answer lies at the other end of asking, ‘Why do people succeed?’ We pretty much know why we succeed. Earl Nightingale said it best: Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.

In many ways, though, the truth is embedded somewhere in between – people fail or succeed in the middle ground between belief and habit, between low aim and goal, between fear and faith. We fail for many reasons, but failure can be summed up in one word: attitude. A change in our attitude can result in a change in our circumstances. Here are three common attitudes that cause people to fail and what to do about it.

We Are Conditioned to Faili

We are surrounded by a twenty-four hour news cycle and it’s killing our internal mechanism for success. Motivation-inhibitors now rule just about every part of the American human psyche; everything from “I can’t” to “I’m too___” (Insert your own: fat, old, young, skinny, inexperienced etc.)


Recognize the side effects of conditioning. Catch yourself when using such phrases as “I can’t” or “I’m too old”, “too fat”, “too inexperienced”. These are thoughts which creep into our subconscious mind on a daily basis and they become the habits that dominate our daily experiences. Elevate your awareness. Don’t give in to your fears. Spend time in silence and watch your courage build. Paulo Coelho writes, There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure.

We Focus Too Much on the ‘How’

Take a poll and ask one hundred people who wanted to start a business or who had actually taken the first step why they had been stymied in their dream and I guarantee you at least ninety percent of respondents will say they became discouraged with the ‘how’ of their desire. ‘How’ is cash on hand, capitalization, support of friends, knowledge of industry, zero bank account etc. ‘How’ has buried many a dream and caused not a few people to abandon their aspirations.


It is not your job to focus on the ‘how’; leave that to a power far greater than you. Turn your attention to the ‘what’ and the ‘why’. Once you figure out what you were born to do, the why will come into focus. Then you’ll determine that the how is moving toward you with breathtaking speed. The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity, writes Amelia Earhart.

We Expect Instant Results

When we have instant hopes we usually expect instant results. Sadly, this is rarely the case. Most people, according to statistics, fail in their start-up dreams within one to three years of launching. They run into cash shortages, extra bills and a dearth of resilience. The end comes quickly.


By perseverance the snail reached the ark, writes the venerable Charles Spurgeon. Such is the cure for the instant gratification we witness in our culture. Don’t fall into that trap. Plant the seed. Nurture it. Leave the earth undisturbed. Develop patience as the plant – financial freedom, promotion, relationship – sprouts into your wildest dreams.

A change in our attitude can result in a change in our circumstances.

Three Reasons Fitness Over Forty is Important

BlackFitness101.com - The 411 On Fitness & Healthy Living...

When you reach forty you reach a milestone. Young adulthood ends and middle-age begins. For some, it’s a seamless transition. For many who have been idle and leading sedentary lifestyles for much of their young adulthood, it is a time fret with potentially negative health outcomes. Issues of heart disease, diabetes, cancers and other metabolic issues – long on the radar – now can all of a sudden cause major disruptions in the quality of one’s life. It’s important to eat right, exercise properly and manage stress in order to get the most of your forties.

So if you are on the brink of forty and you want to ramp up your fitness level, consider these three reasons why fitness over forty is important!


You Will Slow Down the Ageing Process

Get fit in your forties because in doing so you slow down the ageing process. If you have been sedentary up to this point, you are ageing twice as fast what’s considered normal. By getting fit over forty, you will build muscle and burn fat, which can literally add years to your life. The best way to achieve this effect is to use short, explosive exercises in a routine known as H.I.I.T. exercise. H.I.I.T stands for High Intensity Interval Training. H.I.I.T. builds muscle and burns fat at a far greater rate than conventional exercise. Plus, it’s great for stabilizing blood sugar levels and you more effectively manage blood pressure and blood cholesterol results, too. If H.I.I.T is too much for you, consider hiring a personal trainer to offer you expertise and guidance as you move through the preliminary levels of exercise.


You Will Enhance Your Holistic Wellness

We now know more about the ‘mind-body’ connection and how the brain plays such an integral role in how the body responds to exercise. In fact, getting fit over forty is not just a workout for the body; it’s also a medicine for mind and spirit as well. That’s because when the body moves at an accelerated pace, even for just a few minutes, it signals the brain to release ‘feel good’ endorphins throughout the body. This ‘feel-good’ phenomenon is experienced throughout the entire mind-body politic. It also goes a long way toward helping to alleviate or eliminate stress and anxiety triggers.

When you feel good, you look good. When you look good, you feel good. Spiritually, getting fit over forty places you closer to your Divinity. It leads to a greater appreciation of and care for your body.


You Will Decrease Inflammation and Joint Pain

Over one hundred million Americans experience some kind of chronic pain in their adult lives. One of the biggest takeaways from getting fit over forty is that you will learn to use your natural bodyweight to keep your body strong and manage joint and chronic pain. A lot of people experience weak areas at the joints. The use of barbells and other weights only intensifies the discomfort, especially if it’s something that has been building since your thirties.

Using your natural body weight can alleviate pain in the joints. Exercises such as push-ups, squats and planks, when varied in frequency and duration, can keep muscles strong well into old age.

Eat right, exercise often and manage stress and you will be fit as you move into your forties!
