If you are going to be successful, you have to stop making excuses for things in your life. So, the problem with saying something like "I'm not in shape because of the things around me" is it is really an ownership issue. If you aren't doing what it takes for anything in life, it is your fault and you need to take ownership (as hard as that may be to hear).
You're not late for work because of traffic. You are late because you didn't leave in time to get to work. Stop making excuses for things in your life for things you have control over. It's time to take ownership. You're not unhappy in a job because you have a bad employer. You're unhappy in your job because you haven't either found a way to be happy in your current employment situation or found another employer that you are going to get that satisfaction out of.
So, no excuses and start taking ownership!

Happy New Year!
As you embark on the new year and decade, I wish you joy, peace, and love to generate the energy and courage to accomplish the goals you have for this next decade. The journey to accomplishing goals can be tough and most people approach goals from a perfection or quit perspective.
Perfection or Quit
In other words, if you miss going to the gym one day, you might as well allow your week to go bad and then your month and before you know it, your entire year is blown! The same goes for a plan to eat better. You have one bad meal and then you tell yourself, "I've already screwed up a day, I failed." Be alright knowing that there are setbacks and don't let the lies of perfection get in your way of accomplishing what you have set out this New Year!
One More Day Syndrome
Do you suffer from one more day syndrome? In one more day, I'll start working out or eating better. The problem with one more day syndrome is it turns into one more week, then one more month,...
Winging it for 2020 isn't going to get you accomplishing what you want to do for 2020. Given 92% of New Year's resolutions fail, winging it could really be seen as tackling your goals like most people do....going at it alone.
If you want to have a better shot at accomplishing your goals for 2020 and beyond so you're not stuck making the same resolutions next year, then you need to do what has been shown by research to make you more apt to accomplish your goals. So, let's cut to the chase:
1. Have an accountability partner and check in weekly with that person - Some studies have shown this will increase your chances of success by up to 95%.
2. Invest in a coach. You already know that the people at the top of their game have a coach. A CEO with 7 kids, healthy, and energized with a good relationship with his family isn't just winging it. He has a coach. Maybe you're not a CEO but what if you could 5X how you're showing up for your health, finances, family, and dreams next...
For me, this year has been a very pivotal year in my life. I became a Certified High Performance Coach, re-launched my online business, and started angel investing. I talk to people on a weekly basis from around the world and it's been a really amazing journey. The journey is amazing because I'm chasing my passions and in so doing, helping people more.
The coaching has impacted my life in so many ways. It's an amazing opportunity to teach other people. I wouldn't have done it without the influence of both my wife and one of my coaches, Melanie Jean Burke. I really appreciate those people in my life who support me and help me serve people with my whole hurt.

I don't where you are but I have always felt like an entrepreneur at heart and my grandpa had a big part in encouraging me to chase it. One story I had starts where my grandpa would take me to CompUSA which was a store that sold parts to build computers.
I would always look through the Thrifty Nickel (a newspaper) and look at the ads and got this idea, "I want to build my own computers." So, I took the time to learn how to build computers and went and bought my own parts and built a computer that cost me $600 and told it in the Thrifty Nickel for $800. At the time, that was huge...I just made a $200 profit! It was this excitement of "Hey, you can be an entrepreneur, build your own business, and sell things!"
So, if you are out there and you're passionate about running your own side business or a full business, know that there is a world wide web of opportunity out there where you can make money doing things you enjoy to do. Don't be afraid to chase that dream you have and start your...
Why You're Still Waiting to Get Started on Your Dreams
Do you tell yourself that you’ll get started on your big plans at some future date? You can start a business after the kids graduate from college? Or, maybe you’ll just wait until the New Year to begin your exercise program. We’ve all done it. There always seems to be a good reason not to get started right here and now.
Are you sure you know the real reason you’re waiting? If you’re waiting to begin pursuing your dreams, you’re likely just procrastinating!
Consider these excuses. Is one of them yours?
1. You’re waiting for the perfect time. Are you waiting for your job to just slow down or for your kids to get a little older? You’ll be waiting for a long time. The time will never be perfect to get started on something significant, so just get started.
2. You’re waiting for something else to happen first. Maybe you’re waiting for for the mortgage to be paid off. Or...
I decided that I was not going to get older and not have explored what other job opportunities were out there. I joined this small company that was into website design and optimization. Having being passion in this area in the past, I decided, I was going to go for it!
I got into the company and could start to feel, "this just wasn't right for me." It was the type of company where you could tell the management would talk behind your back. Management would hold meetings and we'd be put in these uncomfortable situations where they wanted to talk bad about the other employees without them being present. There was complaining and gossiping and just not working out.
Three months in, I get pulled into a room by one of the founders of the company and he said "Jeremy, we are just going to have to let you go." At that point, you'd think I'd be stressing but it was the complete opposite. I called my wife on the way home and said "Amy, this is the most amazing news ever. I got laid off from...
