Even The Best Fall Down Sometimes

You may be run into a time in a relationship where things get real hard, so hard, that it causes a break up. When someone tells you “It’s not you, it’s me” there may be more truth to that statement than you may realize.

Although most people consider that statement an insult because it’s a cheap way of someone getting off the hook when they really think the problem is with you, sometimes that may not always be the case. Sometimes the statement is an exact description of what happened to the relationship. Read more…

When It’s Over

The most sobering thing at the end of a relationship is not that you’ll miss what you had because what you had was probably shit but rather that you’ll see the person you left behind give another person everything you had asked for.

And you’ll wonder to yourself, if they had just given all that to you, wouldn’t it have worked out?

I mean, that’s all you were really asking for was for them to show they cared, to put you first, to treat you well, to meet your needs, and to love you. Read more…

FitTeam FitStick Weight Loss Theory

Losing weight has become a global phenomenon especially in America where we also have an obesity epidemic on our hands. It is no surprise that we are getting bigger and bigger because the food industry is marketing us to death and the food lobbyists have heavy influence on the government agencies that are supposed to protect us, like the FDA.

Junk food is a billion dollar business, grocery stores are jam packed with items that are heavily processed, unnatural, and contain tons of ingredients that most of us cannot even pronounce much less know what they are. We no longer eat real food, everything is artificial and the food industry has been conducting an experiment on us for the last 50 years. Read more…

One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

If you’re single and in your 20’s watching all of your dream girls get married off, don’t worry it’s not the end of the world.

And if you miss the boat then, there’s another likely chance that your dream girl will divorce again if she gets remarried.

The Law of 80/20 in Relationships

The Pareto principle also known as the rule or law of 80/20 states that 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. This is a widely known and accepted rule of business but what most people don’t realize is the law can be applied to almost every aspect of life, including relationships.

If you’ve read books like The 5 Love Languages you may have realized at this point that everyone has a different way of showing appreciation and love for their partner in ways that make sense to them.

Simply put, this means two people could be expressing love for each other in different ways but neither of them realizing that their partners way of expressing their love and appreciation is different from their own, thus they completely ignore or often overlook the things their partner does to express their love and appreciation.

Choice is at the Root of all Unhappiness

Too many choices lead to confusion, unhappiness, and regret. No matter what we decide, we later think about all the options we left behind.

As technology advances so do our choices. There are now 40 different toothpastes to choose from, 50 different loaves of bread, and even milk isn’t the same anymore. There’s whole milk, skim milk, 2% milk, 1% milk, coconut milk, almond milk, rice milk, and every type of milk you can possibly think of.

We have so many choices that a greater and greater portion of our lives are wasting away while we decide things. We’ve switched from actively doing things to actively thinking about things and it’s getting worse. Read more…

There are Two Ways to Handle All Relationship Problems

There are two ways to handle all relationship problems. You can try to change the other person or you can try to change yourself. Only one of these has a proven track record of success.

Let’s face it, no matter how perfect of a relationship you think you might be in, the chances of never having a disagreement are probably not even realistic. Let us assume that each person in a relationship is a unique individual and that each of you has some quantity of beliefs or values that differ from each other.

Let’s assume that you have different personalities, thought processes, and just generally a different way of going about things. You are different because your life experiences are different. The things you had to go through to get to where you are today were probably vastly different than the person you’re with. If they aren’t, then you should probably stop dating relatives… Read more…

Being Content is a Dream Crusher

Ever wonder why you don’t get all the things out of life that you feel you deserve? Ever look at another person envious of how “lucky” they are? Have you ever thought to yourself, “There has to be something more to life than this?”

One of the biggest things holding you back from getting what you really want is yourself. This has become a very over used cliche that nobody stops to really think about.

It’s about being more than your own worst enemy and constantly screwing up. It’s the very subtle things that you don’t even realize you’re doing to yourself.

It’s the way that you talk to yourself — your inner dialogue is always screwing you over. It talks you out of pursuing opportunities and tricks you into believing that you don’t really need or want something.

Being content is a dream crusher. Read more…

How to Run a Race with Hills – When Mind over Matter Doesn’t Matter

If you’re a runner you’ve probably been exposed to the belief system of mind over matter, or mind over body, which is a simple way of saying that you can go beyond the physical limitations of your body and push yourself to do better if you simply believe that you can.

When we talk about running, the biggest challenge we face in a race is really a mental battle. Should I keep going, should I slow down, should I go faster, should I give up? The question is posed in our heads over and over as we push ourselves to our limits.

When we reach our limits physically we can make our body keep giving us just a little bit more. Read more…
