    Keep growing…

    by Mike Phillips

      Be teachable. Keep growing and keep learning. You should continue to learn and grow, from the wisdom and mentoring of others. Try your best to stay teachable. I am continually shown that the best thing you can do for your health, wealth and continued well-being is to learn. You should take what you learn and apply […]

      Change The World By Your Example, Not Your Opinion

      by Mike Phillips

        To me, this means take action, be a change agent. I was on Facebook the other day and read this statement. “Change the world by your example, not your opinion.” To me, this is a profound statement. People’s opinions get shared significantly more often than than anyone will opt to do something about a given situation. There are […]

        What If You Tried Until…?

        by Mike Phillips

          When adults are trying to tackle a task or chasing a goal,  most people will make the attempt, once, twice, maybe three times… then quit. There is no more try, left in them. So whatever it is that they were trying to do just stops. Meanwhile, success takes consistency, it takes resilience and tenacity. Consistency is […]

          Today: It’s not the whole race.

          by Mike Phillips

            There are many things in life that are races; just not everything. I do believe you can compare your life to a foot race. Life is more of a marathon style training session. It’s a long ride. Besides that… there are a whole bunch of different racing styles. You will compete in many races and […]

            How Did You Do?

            by Mike Phillips

              I titled today’s blog like I did, because I have this awesome physical trainer/weight trainer/aerobics instructor/ok… I’m not sure what his title really is. His name is Quentin at LifeTime in Colorado Springs, but he introduces these non-stop crazy routines into class workouts (Yes Quentin, it’s you… you’re welcome). And after he gives you 72 […]

              Resolution or Revolution – Heck, just do it! 2017!

              by Mike Phillips

                Its that time of year again… NEW YEARS DAY! Whoopee! It’s the time that (most) everyone decides to make their yearly commitments and resolutions to do better…  workout more, work harder, be more awesome, be a better husband, father or family member, and so on. I have a question for you on  this New Years […]

                Get Your Ball Rolling! Finding More Motivation!

                by Mike Phillips

                  Motivation isn’t magic; though it does sometimes just appear – motivation is need (or want). Motivation is a general willingness to do something, anything. When you NEED or WANT something badly enough, your brain kicks into gear and finds a way to work it out and get it. I know we’ve all been there, I […]

                  Achievement … It’s all about ME!

                  by Mike Phillips

                  There are so many ways that I could start this and let me start by saying, great news… achievement is all about YOU!  However, that is not where I am headed with this one.  It’s not a self serving, self righteous statement that it is all about me or you or any individual.  Achievement, at […]

                  Champions always WIN – DO NOT acknowledge failure!

                  by Mike Phillips

                    When you attack any goal there are always two options, right?  Success or failure.  I would like to challenge that statement.  Champions… winners… they always produce an outcome that ends in success!  It may not always be the outcome that they expected, it’s an outcome none the less, therefore they SUCCEEDED in producing an outcome.  […]
