Muhammad Ali – Don’t count the days; make the days count.

Muhammad Ali passed away today at the young age of 74. You can read his official obituary here. I wrote an article back in 2012 on a bit of the family history of Muhammad Ali. There might be a remote chance that somewhere down the line twice removed and add a cousin or two, I might actually be related to Muhammad Ali. You can read about it here. I admit that I like professional fighting, Boxing, UFC and mixed martial arts. I’m...

Some People Just Call it Running.

Everyday there are things that I take for granted. Even running, I know that I can just do it, I don’t think a whole lot about it. Really, how complicated is running?

The complex systems of tendons, muscles and cells that power...

They will surprise you – Little Inspirations

I received a pair of lounge pants – AKA as PJ’s as a gift and they happened to be exactly the same as a pair that I already owned. No big deal exchanges are easy…right? Except these PJ’s sat unused lounging (ha!) on my dresser with tags attached for over six months. So, a couple of days ago I finally decide to take action and liberate the PJ’s from their doomed existence of living a life unused. I read...

Impossible – Muhammad Ali

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact.

Impossible is nothing.” ― Muhammad Ali Now that I have given you the quote O’ the day….. It’s...

No Excuses – Warhawk Matt Scott

The “Just do It” kind of attitude can pay off huge if you follow the mantra of “No Excuses”. Need to go for a run, pay off a debt or study for an exam but have other things that get in the way. Ask yourself what excuses are you using today to delay you from doing something that you need to do. Alternatively, if you are ever invited or invite a friend out to do something and they give you an excuse…. Send...

New years resolutions Vs. New years goals

If you Google new years resolutions you will find many websites that will have lists of the top 10 new years resolutions. What you will also find is these lists are often packed with non specific things like “Have more fun” “Spend more time with your family” “Get out of debt” and “Exercise more”. Of course, all of these things are good but what they are missing is a specific action. You...
