Two years ago I started this account as a New Years resolution to track my progress and share my love for fitness. It was scary because fit accounts weren’t super popular and I didn’t want to be judged. Today, I am so so happy I made that decision to take that step outside of my comfort zone. I feel that since I’ve made this account, I’ve become a stronger and more confident version of myself 🙏🏼Being able to help people with their fitness goals, and being supported by people I’ve never even met is just amazing :) 🥂Here’s to more self growth 💕#growth #selfcare #fitness #fitgoals #gymshark66 #gymshark66challenge #beavisionary #youtuber #happylife

🔸As unfortunate as it is, people take more action due to desperation than they due to inspiration. 🔸Many people wait until they’re sick or overweight to start taking their health more seriously. 🔸Many individuals also wait until something breaks before they do something, instead of just maintaining. Such examples can be found in houses, cars, relationships and so on. ▶️Same principle applies to business owners. Those whom are pressed by a necessity take more action than those who lack the urgency. ▶️If you find yourself constantly procrastinating, here’s how you can change it. You can set up your goals with a sense of urgency by setting up timelines and also a price for not completing it by a specific due date. Use something that will motivate you to get off your butt and move things along, something that you might not like to do or maybe an amount of money that you’ll have to pay to someone you don’t like. It’ll stimulate you to make sure you show up every day and see your goals to completion. ▶️If you don’t create that urgency, you will faced with regret, which is a heavy burden to carry. Set the goal, set the price and get moving. 📞If you don’t know where to start, let’s set up a time to talk. ❓If you can’t take action on your own today, what makes you think you will in a month or a year? ❗️Don’t waste anymore time! Your time is NOW! 📞Schedule your call today and let’s get your mindset and your goals ready for your best year yet!

It is not up to us to determine when our romantic partner will arrive.
You see, love does not come in one kind of package, it is not confined to romantic relationships.
Do not put limitations on how love can show up in your life, open the doors to all possibilities.
We limit love by saying, “you’re not welcome here unless you look a certain way.” This belief perpetuates a feeling of emptiness - rather than the recognition of our true wholeness.
To draw in and recognize healthy relationships, we must start by extending loving kindness and forgiveness towards ourselves.
Experiencing love is a gift we all have access to in every moment.
The more that we give this love to ourselves, the more we will receive it as a mirror of what we are embodying.
Accept the pain, suffering, confusion and anger that have been teachers to you on the path.
Love yourself, as you are, right now in this moment - nothing to change, nothing to do, just be with what is.
Then, as this love for yourself grows in your heart, you will naturally mirror compassion towards others.
Rather than judgements and criticisms, you will see the perfection, wholeness, and beauty in others.
You will see that their strife, pain, and wrong thinking is all a part of the dance of them returning to love - time and time again.
And they too will see this in you.
The eyes of love will witness you, as you have witnessed yourself, and in this state nothing but love can be.

Healers need healing too 🗣 it's a common misconception that I have it all together & that I have this life thing completely figured out 🤦🏾♀️
I'm 23 years old. I suffer from PTSD, major depression & anxiety. I lost my mom & all of my grandparents by the age of 22. I've been abused, misused, lied to/on, cheated on & so much more. Furthermore, my family is the definition of dysfunctional 😳
Because I don't dwell on this darkness, I'm seen as this person with supernatural strength. I'm expected to have all the answers & to keep pushing through whatever, but I get tired too. I have moments of weakness & day-long stretches where I don't even want to get out of bed 😭
Just because someone is strong & willing to help you with your issues doesn't mean that they aren't struggling with their own as well. Healers have the ability to heal because we've learned how to heal ourselves. This strength doesn't come from theory...I've lived through some real shit. Every piece of advice I offer on my social media accounts, blog & through my book have been learned from my authentic experience. I'm no stronger or more extraordinary than any of you. I'm healing, growing, living & learning right alongside you. Don't put me on a pedestal. I'm fucked up too 🤷🏾♀️

Most good ideas will not be well received the first time it's proposed. Your idea may need tweaking, but it may not be bad. It's your job to prove that your idea/plan will work. Don't give up. Keep pressing onward. Believe in yourself, work diligently, and the rest should fall in place.
In light of all the Gillette controversy I felt compelled to share this. My initial feeling when first seeing the commercial was disgust. I was absolutely repulsed. I know in the current cultural climate this idea of “toxic masculinity” is really being pushed, but I don’t think people are really aware of the damage that it is causing in our young boys and men. I appreciate and love everything that the masculine offers. I absolutely love the polarity between the masculine and the feminine. And so because of this I can no longer stay silent and watch how the very things that I love about men are coming under attack. Yes men and women are equal, but we are still different. It’s time that we start trying to understand the differences between us and start to develop a real appreciation for them. It’s the key to our balance. #ilovemen #ilovemasculinity #unapologeticallyfeminine #masculineenergy #feminineenergy #love #growth #ploarity
Teaching kids reminds us how important it is to be playful in our approach to learning. Each kid’s personality is allowed to develop and be expressed through jiu jitsu 🌟It’s been super fun working with these kiddos and watching them grow 💪✨Looking forward to more lessons and laughs in 2019! ☺️😜#newyear #2019 #growth #bjj #bjjkids #jiujitsu #commongroundbjj #pasadena
It’s nice to reflect on a decade ago. Not the same person I was then and wouldn’t change it for all the money in the world.
“Una persona con gratitud puede sostener una visión y llevarla hasta su término."
"La gratitud es la madre de todos los sentimientos. Es la expresión más alta de la emoción dentro de la consciencia humana.
El universo está estructurado para responder naturalmente a las necesidades y deseos de un individuo agradecido.
Solo una persona con gratitud puede mantener una visión y completarla, ya que su cerebro y su sistema nervioso están conectados de manera diferente. Descubre el amor en las relaciones y una mayor conexión con la consciencia superior."
- Sri Bhagavan
Cada persona, experiencia, situación, nos ha dejado un aprendizaje, una enseñanza, una lección o el recuerdo de maravillosos momentos compartidos.
Que tantas cosas agradeces el día de hoy?
Que tan larga es tu lista de personas a quienes tienes algo que agradecer?
Yo agradezco en primer lugar a mis ancestros, a mis padres, hermanas, familia, a mis hijos, amigos, maestros, a quienes me siguen, a quienes no, a cada una de las personas con quien me he encontrado a lo largo del camino.
A la vida.
Gratitud infinita ...
La gratitud es la memoria del corazón ...
A grateful heart .... 🖤

I remember when the picture in the left was taken about 8 years ago ⏰
I also remember how incredibly uncomfortable I was in my own skin. My diet was 💩 , my self image was 💩 , I didn’t exercise, I was tired all the time, I barely had any curves and basically no booty.
Fast forward to a year later when I started my health/fit journey by doing Insanity. Nothing has been the same since. Mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually - it changed me. Being active is a staple therapy in my life. After all, a body in motion stays in motion. We are meant to MOVE! We are animals , our bodies are our machines- they’re meant to be pushed physically.
Granted, there have been days, weeks and months of ‘not being in the groove’ of working out and eating for optimum health. BUT no matter what, I have always been lead back to it. Feeling good is a priority to me and looking good isn’t so bad either 🤪💪🏼#beforeandafter #healthyfood #lifestyle #growth #thechangeisnow
I used to be that guy who would throw on 7 or 8 plates on each side thinking I was gonna get big 🤔, little did I know I was just messing up my joints and barely activating my muscle fibers.
1. Quality >>> Quantity
2. Slow & controlled reps with full range of motion will activate way more muscle fibers, leading to a greater amount of muscle hypotrophy(growth).
3. Explosive reps with heavier weight mainly builds power & strength but is not optimal for building muscle.
4. The position of your feet will target different parts of your legs; closer together is better for quads & farther apart is better for hamstrings/glutes.
If you noticed, I am using rubber bands for added resistance. (I will go more in depth about rubber bands on my next video)
Never surrender; constantly work to get better against all odds👊😠. ✅ Follow @thestrongest_ever
Every hero has one or more fatal flaw(s): a natural tendency that could kill them or hurt them or lead them astray.
In some ways we are dynamic and throughout the course of our life will continue to change and develop as people ... but in other ways: our natural strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, and inclinations will tend towards remaining the same and never changing.
Your strengths remain the same and your fatal flaws and characteristic inclinations, towards weakness or bad of some kind remain the same sort of form as well.
What is that for you?
For many it is chronic pride (hubris as they would call it at the times of the Greeks)... and overconfidence that can destroy them.
For me and others it was often chronic laziness, excess comfort, overindulgence in fun, comfort, stability and sloth that could be crippling and endless if not careful.
The more you recognize your own tendencies, the more you can work to combat them or prevent yourself falling into them or towards them.
And you can either strengthen them yourself ... or you can work with other people whose strengths and abilities complement those natural weaknesses of yours🧐🧠👌
All it takes is starting ... even if you start small, or start badly, or start wrong ...
That feel when you go off of your powerlifting programming😜😂
Start extremely small, start with little to no money and no funding, focus just simply only on being useful and solving problems that need to be solved for other people.
Have the focus on solving problems for other people, and being useful to other people, even in some small but meaningful way.
Start with just one person you’re helping out, one customer, and continue to gradually go on from there.
From the book: Anything You Want, by Derek Sivers (a mini book on business).
-genuine interest, care, and empathy -selling on the value and all the benefits that they will get and not selling on price -truly believing in the high value and usefulness of what you are selling -selling on both emotion and logic; not selling on purely emotion
Interesting reading lol ... from Ray Dalio “Principles”🧠🧠
