Life begins outside of your comfort zone!

Comfort zone is defined differently by every living human being on this planet.

Here are a few of them:

  • a place or situation where one feels safe or at ease and without stress.
  • a psychological state in which things feel familiar to a person and they are at ease and perceive they are in control of their environment, experiencing low levrelds of anxiety and stress.
  • in this zone a steady level of performance is possible

When I was younger I rarely stepped out of my comfort zone. When I turned 50 (in 2010) and weighed 310#, I stepped out of my comfort zone and shared my story on social media that I wanted to lose weight. My goal was to lose 100#. I actually lost 135# in 2010 and for the most part have kept it off. I appeared LIVE on The NBC Today Show in New York City on 11.26.10. As an obese person for so many, many years it’s always a struggle to eat right and stay fit. However, the scale is my motivator. I step on it briefly every day and that right there tells me what I gotta do. JUMPING out of my comfort zone and sharing what I do is hopefully an inspiration to others as well as myself. I’m committed to never go back to 310#.

Here are my LIFE JUMPS… ALL AFTER I TURNED 50 YEARS YOUNG!

  • I publicly lost 135# in 2010.
  • I got braces at the age of 50.
  • Was LIVE on The NBC Today Show. Told my story to THE WORLD.
  • Ran 10 1/2 Marathons.
  • Ran the 2013 Chicago Marathon.
  • Had my varicose veins in my legs removed in 2013.
  • Skydiveout of perfectly good airplanes at 18,000′
  • Did 8 Hustle Up the Hancock stair climbs.
  • Scuba dive certified in 2016
  • I’m a TRIATHLETE.
  • I workout in public.
  • I bicycle 100-miles for the fun of it all in 1-day.
  • I’m a licensed softball and baseball umpire.

 

What is holding you back from JUMPING out of your comfort zone?

DO POSITIVE instead of saying Be Positive. Just stop complaining and DO SOMETHING!

It gets tiring listening to people complain. It’s 2020, time to CHANGE YA’LL! Criticizing people and complaining needs to stop. I’m just as guilty as you all but life is too short and we shouldn’t spend our time complaining and criticizing people. It’s gonna be a life changing task. Let’s GO ALL IN!

Doing something to combat the complaining will only teach younger children that it’s better to do something about it rather than complain about it. Complainers are the problem. They are the ones that will just complain to be just complaining. I recently saw someone take pictures of broken glass on a bike trail in a tunnel and post them on Facebook and then proceeded to give the incorrect email address of the wrong park department where the tunnel is located! They expected them to clean it up! My post comment was: “No worries people. I will go clean it up today! 🧹🗑 Shit happens. Stop complaining and do something about it.” Some people suggested catching the person and have them clean up the glass with their tongue. That’s dumb! Others: 😡 😮 

Time is money. Making a rude comment takes time. By the time you do all of that you could of went and did something positive to remedy the situation. 

I went and cleaned up all of the glass… It took me 1-hour!

DO POSITIVE, instead of saying Be Positive.

Do something to pay it forward in your community today and everyday.

2019 to 2020… Time to think and do things differently. MAKE CHANGES. Change is for everyone! Stop talking about the changes you want to make and take action to accomplish them instead.

So many people want change, but they are afraid to begin make those changes. They fear the outcome. Stop complaining about stuff you can’t change. Worrying about something that may never happen is not healthy. The majority of those things never ever happen. Live life to the fullest and just appreciate all that you have. 

Do this stuff instead. 

HAVE FUN.  Everything we do in life should be fun. Work should be fun in a different way than pleasure things. If you aren’t having fun at work, it’s time to make a change to a new job, company or career. Doing fun things in life like adventures should be done everyday. Time to turn off the tv and get off the couch. 

BE KIND.  Start doing this instead of just saying it to everyone you know. Celebrities always say: BE KIND. Take action and really show people how to be kind to each other. Look around as we all can do things everyday to be kind. It’s the small things in life that make big changes for people.

LAUGH MORE.  Many people need to do this more. Laughing is good for the heart and soul. Watching stand -up comedy is a great release of laughter. Go see IMPROV. 

LOVE.  This is hard for many. We all love many people, but saying you love them directly to them is sometimes hard. Change that in 2020 as life is too short. Love everyone and tell them that you love them. 

SMILE.  Some facts is that it takes 17 muscles to smile and 43 muscles to frown. So let’s all smile more. 

BE HAPPY.  Happiness begins in the mirror. Be happy with yourself first. Being happy with you first leads to making other people happy. It rubs off. 

EXERCISE.  Just saying that word is hard for some people. If it was easy, everyone would do it. It’s not easy. It takes a commitment, dedication and the fact of doing it. 

TAKE VACATIONS.  Some people never go on a vacation. They say they don’t have money for that. We all work hard and deserve vacations. If you don’t plan them and book them somewhere, at the end of the year you will have never gone anywhere. Many vacations don’t have to cost a lot of money. It’s the point of taking time off from work. 

BE YOU.  So many people want to be like someone else. Never, ever compare yourself to anyone else. JUST BE YOU. People will appreciate you more if you were honest with them directly. Some people say: Wow, you are pretty direct when talking to people. That’s the way I am. I say it like it is. Why be a fake. The TRUTH is the truth. 

PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN.  So many people are addicted to their phones. Scrolling for nothing is consuming everyone. It’s seriously out of control. The World Population is 7,740,979,987. The World Mobile Connections is 9,327,053,848. Drop your phone and talk to a family member.

LIFE IS LIFE.  You don’t have to do big things in life to be great. Doing small things in your own great way is great enough. You are enough!

 

WORK HARD. 

PLAY HARD.

RELAX HARDER.

When I started watching my grandchildren and spend lots of time with them, I take them with me everywhere. Sometimes I’m toting 3 of them with me. Some where walking, some where crawling and some were in a baby carrier. My point is nothing is going to stop me from doing what has to be done in a normal day. We would talk to people and be kind to them in all facets of a day. They learned to smile as soon as they were born because if you know me at all, “I’m the selfie KING.”  LOL

Hanging with me you learn how to smile at an early age and we talk to everyone!

Some of my grandchildren are what I call “social lights”, just like me and that is perfectly fine. Being kind and talking to all people is OK. It’s healthy, fun and makes us all learn about people.

One of my granddaughters is especially social as she waves, smiles and is always saying Hi and Goodbye to everyone. She has learned to not be afraid of anyone or anything. She was jumping into a swimming pool when she was a little over 1 when I was in the pool and sometimes she just stepped in thinking that someone would be there to pull her out of the water. We always got to her, but she did go underwater many times.

Teach young children how to be kind & social… BE ALL IN! Have “NO FEAR”

Frugal vs Cheap! I prefer frugal.

Posted: December 16, 2019 in Uncategorized

If you ever use the word CHEAP, maybe it’s time to rethink your choice of words and thoughts.

Using the word cheap in a sentence should be a crime punishable by law. LOL  In reality, being cheap, thinking of buying something cheap, wanting something at a cheaper price, actually thinking you bought something cheap, doing something cheaper in business.

The word “CHEAP” should be eliminated in life and in your business. Thinking that you got a deal because you got it cheap  is exactly what you paid for… cheap. It will eventually break or won’t work, will just stop working or in business that clown you got to entertain your employees children and the company Christmas party never showed up! You get what you pay💰for! Spend a little extra and be frugal! Take yourself to the next level!  #dowhatsright

Whiteboards vs Spreadsheets?

Posted: December 8, 2019 in Uncategorized

Erasable White board vs Spreadsheet?

Businesses should have a big erasable white board somewhere in the their office for all the employees to see the company projects that they are working on vs a spreadsheet on a computer. The biggest benefit of an erasable white board is that people can see the project progression and when it’s completed it’s erased off the board. Typically another one replaces it shortly thereafter. The real key to success is to always have something written on the board. The main problem with spreadsheet projects is that they aren’t updated often enough and then people can use the excuse that they never looked at the spreadsheet. 

Erasable white boards can be utilized for so many things. Projects progresses, marketing ideas and when to implement them, social media postings and when to do them, targeting clients campaigns, etc. Just Goggle “white board ideas for businesses”

Get your erasable white board today and make your business even more successful than it already is!

They even make erasable white board pain that can be applied to a big wall.

It’s that time of the year that people start thinking about what their New Year’s resolution might be. I on the other hand have always thought why wait until January 1st to start something new, especially a New Year’s Resolution.

What’s your body moving goal?

Yesterday, 11/30/19 I set my December Goals:  Solutions vs Resolutions!

I decided to exercise, work out 🏋️‍♂️, bike, walk, hike and/or swim everyday for at least one hour during the month of December. Upping my game! Moving hard for 60-minutes… Sometimes in life it seems easier to just quit; but be inspired not to give up.

This morning, 12/1/19  I did my official weigh-in (230.4#). I’m 30.4# over my ideal weight.

Many times I set my goals high to try and achieve them. Moving hard for 60-minutes a day for 31 days is my new solution plan.

12/1/19   Today was 30-minutes of working with weights, then a 1-mile walk , then I biked 1.5 miles which all ended up being a full 1:00 hour of moving. Then of course, a 15-minute soak in the 103 degrees whirlpool.
