Number One Rule to Live Right

Big week coming up. First, we had the TT Awards over the weekend, giving out "The Bally's".

Learn who won "TT Client of the Year" and read his #1 rule for success here:


Later today I'll kick off the work week with a Meathead Monday session of bench press, pullups, db incline, db row, and a Hammer Strength machine row.

Then on Thursday I fly to LA to hang out with Jason Ferruggia and Adam Bornstein. On Friday, we are driving down to Costa Mesa to attend I'll be speaking late on Saturday, around 9pm, to an audience of 500 trainers. It's going to be great.

Yesterday I went shopping at the legendary "Big Carrot" organic grocery store here in Toronto. Grabbed some snacks, including some chocolate covered macadamia nuts. After that, I walked Bally the Dog with an easy walk harness...should have bought one of those 7 years ago. Good times. And he went swimming in frigid Lake Ontario. He loves icy cold water. Almost time for another walk...

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
“Cling to what you know in your heart is best. Then, if you are steadfast, the very people who ridiculed you will come to admire you. If you allow the mean-spirited opinions of others to make you waver in your purpose, you incur a double shame.” – Epictetus

List all the things that will get in the way of your goal, and then avoid them. Then list all the things that will help you reach your goal and DO them. Never quit. If you stumble, get back up. Get social support to help you make it through the dip. Then DO more of what works and less of what doesn’t.

Despite what the mainstream media implies, the TRUTH is that you have a LOT more control over your life than most people think. You can choose to change your situation. Your happiness, satisfaction, and success is up to you – and you alone. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. Take control. Live the life you desire and deserve.

Be a lucky man like me, and have the life you want - now

Stay strong,
