Core Values and Upper Body Workout

Today was a little bit of pre-workout caffeine before hitting a Personal Best in Dips (20). There are only 2 weeks left (actually less) in this contest, and I'm pushing on strong to the end. It's been almost 3 months since I've drank a Coke Zero or water from a plastic water bottle.

In addition, I've stepped up my personal development. Just the other day an Info Workshop attendee sent me a very kind email calling me for being better and living the ETR Core Values:

Craig, I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to attend the Info Workshop. It was so well done, so much great info and such a great format. In particular, I just wanted to say how impressed I was with your presentations and how personable you were with all the guests. You were on fire, the best version of CB I think I've ever seen. I know it's none of my concern, but since you've mentioned that you've struggled with anxiety in the past, it looks to me like you're winning - your audiences and followers get even better content and value from you. Thank you again, you're a great example for me.”

What the heck are the ETR Core Values? I'll explain below...

But first, today's workout:

1A) Dips - Max reps (hit 20 on first set)
1B) Pause Chin-ups (1 second pause at top and bottom)

2A) DB Press with 5s ECC
2B) Barbell Row

Lots of foam rolling. Legs are sore, and getting worse by the minute, after Tuesday's squat session.

So about the ETR Core Values...

Here they are:

#1 – Dedicated to Improving Others


We teach valuable skills and foster the application of these skills so that our readers and employees can improve their lives.


#2 – Self-Reliance and Personal Responsibility


While ETR teaches and preaches the need for and benefits of finding positive social support, networking with like-minded people, and attending educational seminars, at the end of the day it’s still your decision to follow through on all of this. It is up to YOU and you only.


#3 – Live by Example


An ETR member exudes the principles of at all times, especially when representing ETR. We rise early, manage our time and energy, and are dedicated to a life well lived. We are, of course, not "all work and no play". Time is made for the finer things in life, enjoyed responsibly.


#4 – Concentrate on What Counts


We focus on what matters. Ignore the noise and concentrate on the big items that move the needle in your life towards your goals.


#5 – We Deliver The Truth


We tell the truth and we expect others to tell the truth to us. The only way to build strong relationships among team members, with joint venture partners, and with our readers, is to always be truthful.


#6 – Customer Service, Customer Service, Customer Service


This is our team's mission. Every communication focuses on improving the customer experience. We have always had great customer service and always will because it helps people implement our proven products and they get more results. And that is why it’s so important, is because it ends up impacting so many more people and moving us towards the TT 10 Million Transformation Mission.


#7 – Always be Learning and Improving


You’re not just satisfied with what you know now. You’re always improving.


#8 – Never, ever, ever, EVER give up on what is important to you.


Never give up on getting better, and never give up on helping our readers and clients. Everybody’s going to have some struggles, but we’re going to be there helping.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Build a network of Go-Givers & positive people. There are good folks out there that want to help. Lead by example & harness the power of positive people in your life!

Get giving,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
