Behind every great achievement you will always find great “struggles”. Why then do some conquer when other falter? Why do some work harder when hit with adversity while others crawl under the covers? Why do some get excited when obstacles get in the way knowing “I’m almost there”, while others turn and go another way? Struggles in life are a given. You are going to have plenty. In fact I will go a step further and say the greater things you do the greater struggles you will have. And guess what? You will be thankful of the struggles because without them you would have never achieved greatness.

One of the biggest LIE’S told daily is “life can be easy”…….. There is no such thing as a life of ease..

The Daily Echo: Scaling Pushups the CORRECT way…. August 20, 2016

Attachment-1

Great video today from K-Star aka Kelly Starrett….. I can’t believe how many times pushups are done so badly it makes my stomach cringe….. The worst part is having your child told by the PE teacher or coach he/she is doing them wrong. When in reality he/she is the only one doing them right. The pushup is a functional movement for many activities we do in life. The minute we begin to get those elbows out and wide we are creating a fundamental BAD bio-mechanical load on the shoulder’s, elbow, wrist and more…. You can take my word for it or crank out thousands of them and begin to feel the effects of poor mechanics.. In today’s episode Kelly and his daughter talk and demonstrate how we can help children and those who don’t have the strength begin to learn and develop a proper pushup. On the cover picture I have a contraption we have built at home that hangs from a push up bar using band(s), chain and the versatile “sling shot” to stabilize the midline to remain ridged and braced while the person increases strength. Bands can be lessened over time until wha La “The Perfect Pushup” has been performed. Take a look at today’s episode and then have your children show you how they are doing it….

The Daily Echo: CONGRATULATION!!!!! This DAY is YOUR DAY!!!!!! August 19, 2016

Did you wake up at the crack of dawn with PASSION and EXCITEMENT that THIS Day is YOURS????? OR???? Did you wake up today after hitting the snooze button 3 times upset that you have to face “another” day???? Why and What separates those people that LOVE life and LOVE TODAY???? To me it’s quite simple…. ATTITUDE…. The attitude of gratitude for another chance, opportunity,sunset, sunrise, hug from your granddaughter, movie night with your wife, watching Seinfeld and laughing with your daughter, exercising and talking with your wife and daughter, and the list goes on and on for me…. For many years I use to be the guy that woke up to 3 snooze alarms dreading the day that was upon me…. I finally realized I had a choice… The choice to be thankful for the little things, big things, and everything in between. When I began to choose gratitude I began to anticipate TODAY… I remember asking my Dad why and how he approached each day with such high expectations and enthusiasm. His words of wisdom should be used for all of us… He said, “I remember as a small boy anticipating Christmas day and the excitement of the night before knowing something special was going to happen tomorrow. Now he says I do the same as I lie in bed ready to sleep… My mind anticipates tomorrow as that little boy knowing something special will happen tomorrow… And guess what? It usually does..

Most of us have played the popular game Tetris…. Have you ever noticed after playing Tetris you see most of the world around you in similar shaped block patters? Shawn Achor was part of a group at Harvard that studied students playing Tetris for long intervals… What they observed was Cognitive After Image…. Shawn goes on to explain this Cognitive After Image is not only apparent in Tetris but in many of the things we do in life…. The Tetris Effect is a Key to why our brain is so powerful… It is a training activity for our brain…The problem is what are YOU training your brain with the inputs you are allowing to go in????? Wonder why you focus on negativity, despair, sadness, unhappiness? Are you allowing the news, your friends, your “soap opera” watching to give you those Cognitive After Images? What about the devastating effects of pornography? Take time to watch this short clip and begin to look around you and see what you are allowing to program you……
