Goals, Targets & What Do You Want?
I’m going to get right to the point on this one!
I’m going to have you consider that the number one reason
we don’t GET what we want is that we don’t KNOW what we want.
When setting goals, most of the time, our goals are so vague
and broad that we have no idea where or what to start on!
Once you decide what you want and you’ve come up with a goal,
the next step is to break it down into targets.
If -for example- you want to lose 30 pounds in 90 days:
You would have your 90 day target: - 30 pounds (105,000 calories*)
You would have your 60 day target: -20 pounds (70,000 calories*)
You would have your 30 day target: -10 pounds (35,000 calories*)
You would have your 7 day target: - 2.5 pounds (8,750 calories*)
And, you would have your daily target: - .35 pounds (1,225 calories*)
*1 pound = 3,500 calories
Eat 613 less calories from food
And burn 613 calories in exercise.
NOW you know EXACTLY what you want
and EXACTLY what your targets are!
No more guessing and feeling overwhelmed.
Here are the the steps one more time:
#1 Know what you want
#2 Set a goal with a deadline
#3 break that goal down into quantifiable targets
Did i hit my target? Yes or No.
If the answer is “no”, well then get your ass to work;)

I know It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me BUT I can assure you
I’ve been busy taking my game to the next level
so I can bring that level to you.
A whole new level of Mental Toughness, High Performance Nutrition
and Badass ways to move you into action.
Let me ask you a question… how do you find your power?
Do you wake up and hope your day will go as planned?
Fingers crossed armed with a powerful
affirmation you go out and attack the day.
Only to be derailed by the first setback that punches you right in the face!
Let me ask you this, would you walk into a gym and get under a 315 pound
barbell and expect things to go well?
Not a chance. The fact is, you are going to get crushed!
So why is it that we get five hours of sleep
roll out of bed, grab a doughnut and some coffee
and think things will go well?
The truth is, they don’t go well. We get crushed!
But this year is going to be different right?
The statistics say that 9 out of 10 people will not change
even if their doctor tells them that if they don’t change
they will die!!
Why is this?
Fact: it’s work!
BUT I’m going to have you consider
that it’s not as hard as you might think.
What if it was as simple as “stacking” simple routines?
What If it was as simple as being consistent with these “routines”
until they became habits and you wouldn’t even think about them anymore!
Like brushing your teeth.
Consistency is the hallmark of a pro.
When simple habits are stacked on top of each other
they become a compounded force.
Here’s a list of simple and yet powerful habits you can start stacking today:
Pick one or two and do them EVERY DAY FOR 90 DAYS.
Here’s the catch, if you miss a day you have to start over!
Don’t HOPE you’re going to have a day on fire,
CREATE it by stacking simple habits one at a time.
Are you part of the 10% who will actually do the work required to
If you’re reading this, then I think you are.
Until next time,

Whenever starting a program it's essential to establish a baseline of measurements.
