Cool and Crisp

The past couple of days mother nature has brought us a couple of cooler mornings and days. Fall by far, has to be my favorite seasons. Not only does the weather change but peoples attitudes and mindsets change along with the season.

I personally tend to take on a different mind set during the fall. One thing for sure that changes is my music choices. Now, I don't jump seasons too early like my buddy Miguel Garza from G7 fitness who is already listening to Christmas music. But I do tend to lean more towards Jazz music when the weather starts changing. Well that, and music that allows me to put my "thinking cap" on.

Life's Design

If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

Just Decide

"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it" -William Arthur Ward

"If people aren't laughing at your dreams, then you're not dreaming big enough" -Grayson Marshall

"Make a choice. You just decide what its gonna be, who you're gonna be, how you're gonna do it. Just Decide" -Will Smith

It really is possible for people to shape their lives out of their thoughts. Have you ever noticed that as soon as the thought "I think I'm getting sick" pops into your head almost instantly your body feels week? Or how you all of a sudden feel your throat getting a little sore. Oh and forget about it if someone else validates that thought for you with a hand to your forehead and a "you do feel a little warm". From that moment on not only has your mind been convinced but your body now believes this too. All from one little thought.

That's how powerful our thoughts can be. Now think about if we put that kind of persuasion into our thoughts regarding our dreams or our passions. Things would no longer be impossible.

I Dare You!

I Dare you! It's crazy how much trouble these three words can get you into. Then again, its crazy how liberating these three words can be. I Dare you can be powerful. It can be scary, it can be laughed off as a joke, or all of the above. One thing it cannot be is taken out of context. You can't tell someone I Dare you and they have no idea what you mean or are asking. When you say THOSE three words people know exactly what it is that you're getting at.

How many times in your life have you ever urged a friend to do something with the words I Dare You? You usually change your tone of voice when throwing this challenge down, if it be a high pitch excited squeal or a condescending, doubtful tone. Either way when these three words are uttered the receiving party knows they've been challenged. And everyone knows it's near impossible to walk away from a challenge. Then, for the rest of the day "I should have taken the dare" is on repeat like a bad Lady Gaga song. My DARE to you, Carpe Diem! Don't waste you're time doing something you hate, because then you have less time to do the things you love.

"As you grow older, you'll find the only things you regret are the things you didn't do" -Zachary Scott

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in a world they've been given then to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is NOT a fact it's an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration it's a dare
Impossible is potential
Impossible is temporary
Impossible is Nothing!
