My main message for you today is simple.
"Stay focused on accomplishment, not activity. There's a big difference between the two."
More about that in a second.

Today's workout QnA from www.TurbulenceTrainingFanpage.com
Q: What is the best replacement / alternative(s) for leg exercises if you've got bad knees? Program I'm following of yours requires lunges, split squats etc.
1-leg lying hip extensions and stability ball leg curls. Also, go to your doctor to find out why you have bad knees. And also, lose weight. Excess weight = too much load on your knees.
Q: Best rotator cuff strengthener?
I use band and cable external rotations, but also use WYLITs and face pulls to help that area. Good posture and lifting form is also really important.
Q: So tired that I can't stay a wake during the day after I started working out again, what to do?
1) Get a better night's sleep. If there are obstacles in the way, then you must find solutions for them. 2) Stop all caffeine 8 hours - or more - before bedtime. 3) Reduce the volume of your workouts - sounds like you are doing too much.
That's the perfect question to lead into today's www.SuccessQnA.com
Q: What are some great books to read to help you develop your passion?
I don't know if any book will help you find your passion, but my favorite books are here - http://www.earlytorise.com/mentor/ - perhaps the Go-Giver is the best place to start.
Alright I'm heading to Toronto today and then off to San Diego tomorrow to learn from Bedros Keuilian, Cara Eckerman, Mike Whitfield, and Alwyn Cosgrove. What a great line-up of speakers. Plus, we'll be talking about Transformation secrets all weekend, too.
Until then, learn about the 4 Horsemen of your body's apocalypse here:

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
You are responsible for your results. Accept your results without casting blame and you'll learn from your mistakes so as to not make the same mistakes again.
You must truly believe in yourself. You must end the "I'll give this a try" mindset, and switch to a "I'm going to succeed" belief.
Stop saying you want to change if you're not actually going to do anything about it. If you want to change, take action today, even if it is just the tiniest step in the right direction. Visit a website to learn more about how to achieve your goal. Buy a book. Start reading the ones you have. Contact people who can help you. Take that first action step. And then take another one tomorrow, and another the day after that. Every single day from now on take another step forward toward your goal, toward the change you want to make. Never stop and never give up.
Now for one more dog walk before heading back to Toronto.
