  • Because the status quo does not exist. You're either moving forward...or sliding backwards.

  • Procrastination. Your worst enemy. Handle it before it handles you. @melrobbinslive calls it The 5 Second Rule. And no, you don't have a choice.

  • Guys and girls – listen up. A lot, and I mean a lot of people focus on the WHAT in their lives. The WHAT is a volatile, futile vehicle. Its ultimate destination is a place called Existence. It’s a thankless, exhausting trip with no real purpose except senselessness. Focusing on the WHAT will only distract you from everything good around you, robbing you of the joy in life. Then you have the WHY. The WHY is everything. It’s the ultimate driving force, the reason that makes every day worth living. It’s the exquisite flavour that fills Life with that tantalizing bouquet that titillates the senses. There are some fantastic people out there who brilliantly espouse the difference between the WHAT and the WHY. @patrigsby5 is master of getting someone to the WHY. Watching @paulmort1 evolve from the WHAT into the WHY in his own life has been singularly educational. @whoisryanlee is another champion of using the WHY to drive one’s reason for living. These are three amazing people I am lucky to know, each with their own way of getting to the same beautiful destination. Everybody’s WHY is different. Find yours, and I promise you that you will unleash a force that will propel you to a greatness you’ve never imagined.

  • Everybody wants to be a champion. That’s a definite. No one ever wants to be a loser. Well OK, #garyvee did tell us to suck at something – but that’s only so we could gain enough hunger to absolutely, positively want to become winners. Problem is that, with most people, our desire to be a champion does not equal our desire to put the hard work in that is required to become a champion. @barneythebusinessguy compares it to making a meal – you need to go out, hunt down the right ingredients, then put them together in the right way to make something delicious. #ironmiketyson put it pretty eloquently when he said “Everyone has a plan…until they get punched in the mouth.” No shit. That smack in the face will get your ideas sorted out damn quick. We’re all for the big talk, the bright lights, the fame, the accolades and the applause – but then we run away from the hard slog, the long, cold, dark nights, the blood, the sweat and the tears it takes to get there. Stop blaming the Universe. Three rules. Work hard. Work smart. Do what you love. And good stuff will happen.

  • It's good to celebrate a win. I'm talking about the real wins - those milestones in our lives that get us closer to the best version of ourselves we can be. You see, Life is an evolutionary process. Every day you are moving towards a destination. And that destination depends on your focus. You're either focusing (read: busting your ass) and moving towards a good place, or screwing up and going to a bad place. You're never standing still (and it's pretty foolish to believe you might be). It is really that simple. Now, make no mistake - winning is damn hard work. And, on a professional and personal level, I truly respect the work that it takes to win. So I get excited about winning. Especially when it's my own students that do it. Because the mark of a great coach is when their students take what they have learnt and take it to another level. And the mark of great students is when they take what they have learnt and turn it into something even more magnificent.

  • The Grind If you are looking for success, start by rolling your sleeves up. Put the work in or it’s never going to happen. You are going to have to face your fears. You are going to have to sweat some blood. And there are going to be some serious calluses from falling on your hands and knees during your journey. And no, sorry, there is no other way. Fail. Learn. Apply. And do it again. One more time. Every time. #repost @bfgozo . #hustle #bfgozo #bodyforge #fitness #health #motivation #fit #lifestyle #inspirational

  • Yes I get people mad sometimes. A lot of times of actually. I've long since learnt that honesty is always the best policy and I tend to go straight to the jugular when I talk. An ounce of discomfort today saves a ton of pain tomorrow. Unfortunately, honesty is not appreciated by quite a few people. Because it interferes with their neatly prepared structure of the world as they see it. And that won't do. Because in a world of screwed up priorities, lies are essential. Well, not on my planet, baby. I'm here to cut the crap out and set you straight. It's going to hurt a little. Or more than a little. But it's the fastest way to success. And that's what I'm really good at. So, if you're feeling entitled or complacent, I suggest you give me a wide berth. If you're ready to rock, I'm the high voltage amp.

  • Look. It’s all really simple. Stop blaming others for your shortcomings. Just stop already. You are responsible for your own actions and for your own results. I’m sick and tired of hearing people playing the victim. Have you ever realized what a mega pain in the ass you are when you constantly drop the ball? And worse, not only are you just shirking responsibility and irritating the hell out of others – you are also getting nowhere except to a bad place. So just stop. Accept the fact that you need to stick your nose to the grindstone. That’s the critical moment. Magic happens once you do. And if you can’t do it by yourself, get in touch. I’ll get you where you deserve to be.

  • Few things in life are as liberating as the option of choice. Unfortunately, few things are also as destructive. Because everything we are in life, everything we do and everything we have are our own choices. We made them happen. We accepted things when they came to us. The good and the bad. So stop pointing fingers. It doesn't work. It's no one's fault but yours. Assume responsibility. Own up to the fact that you're the architect of your own destiny. In other words, be the boss. Act like the boss. Do it like a boss.

  • I will always give you 120%. I will walk with you. I will support you incessantly. I will motivate you beyond belief. I will bleed with you, sweat with you and cry with you (and yes, make no mistake, any good journey of note will involve blood, sweat and tears). I will pick you up when you fall. I will carry you when necessary. I believe in you and your power to achieve awesomeness completely. All I want is that you give me 100%. Give me everything you've got. Every time. Because I will never let you down. The hunger within me is too great. And once I give you a taste, you will never get enough.

  • It's a good idea to stop every now and then to see where you are going. And who you're listening to on your way there. Because the people you surround yourself with are ultimately the ones that dictate your direction. Which means they will ultimately decide your success - or the lack of it. So think about it. How successful are your closest friends/associates? Are they givers? Do they exude positivity? Or are they just a ball and chain around your ankles?

  • Here is my question to you: what would YOU do if you knew you could not fail? I'm dead serious. Who would you be? Where would you be now? What would you accomplish? What would your life look like? I'm really interested in hearing what would happen if you really thought that. Because way too many of us are killing our inner genius, our accomplishments and our joy of living by refusing to believe in how amazing we truly are. Yes, YOU, the one reading this right now, sitting on that chair. YOU are incredible. YOU can achieve what you really want in life. And yet YOU keep telling yourself you cannot. YOU keep telling yourself lies because it's more comfortable to believe your own bullshit than it is to live the truth. And the truth is that YOU are unstoppable - the very second you decide to be. Give it a try. Today. I double dare you.

  • Of Strength and Survival. “Survival of the fittest.” We all know that. The thing is that, somewhere along the way, we started misinterpreting the word “fittest”. It’s not about brute strength. Yes, strength does have its virtues but it will not guarantee survival. The one trait that does is…ADAPTABILITY. Change is inevitable. It will happen whether you like it or not and whether you plan for it or not. So the one constant we can all agree on is change (how about that for a contradiction?). Being able to adapt to variation is the one thing that will ensure we thrive. So, when change happens in your life, be fluid. Acclimatise and adjust yourself. Figure out what you need to do to win in the new situation. Don’t get angry.

  • Bite the Bullet. #repost @bfgozo Procrastination is not your friend. You better believe she isn’t. She also goes by some less fancy names too. Like Bad Priorities. Wimping Out. Fake Busy. Or that perennial favourite – My Self Imposed Bullshit. That makes things a bit more clear. So, if you have any decision to make in your life – make it now. Don’t let it sit. Because it’s not only going to be harder to make tomorrow – but the damage is going to be greater tomorrow. Sitting decisions tend to rot. So go ahead and bite the damn bullet – it will save you a lot of pain tomorrow.

  • If you don't have a plan, you're screwed. How the hell do you know where you are going without a map and a compass? You have no idea if you are moving backward, or forward or digging a f*ck!ng hole right down into the ground. If you're not measuring progress, you're wasting valuable time burning rubber and getting nowhere worth going. I urge you, I dare you and I double dare you - make a plan for today. Yes, just today - start with one day. Make a list of three goals you'd like to hit today (obviously, don't go overboard - you're not going to build the space shuttle in 24 hours). Then devote the rest of the day into making sure you hammer those goals so hard, they squeal your name. Do it. See how it feels. Then, repeat tomorrow. And the day after that. That's what champions do. . . #bfgozo #bodyforge #gozocoach #fitness #health #health y #motivation #motivation al #fit #entrepreneur #entrepreneur life #lifestyle #inspirational #inspirational quotes #hardwork #success quotes #life #lifestyle #inspire #inspire daily #hustlehard #success #fitfam #mindset

  • The Numbness in Numbers. #repost @bfgozo Have you heard the phrases “there is comfort in numbers”? I beg to differ. That’s not comfort you’re feeling. It’s numbness. It’s way too easy to ignore things when you are surrounded by a million distractions. There is also anonymity in numbers. As well as mediocrity. It’s impossible to shine when you are too busy hiding or blending in. Way too many people are comfortable being another sheep in the herd. And they will never amount to anything. . Screw that! Don’t do Life that way. That’s nuts. Be true to yourself. Be unique. Have to courage to listen to your gut, not to someone’s projected fears and failures. You are amazing. As amazing as you believe you can be. So do this - be who you are meant to be. Have the courage to embrace that. Don’t be afraid of falling down and don’t be afraid of getting back up. And don’t be afraid of what others will say. Daunting task? Hell yeah. And I would not have it any other way. Let’s rock this. . . #bfgozo #bodyforge #gozocoach #fitness #health #health y #motivation #motivation al #fit #entrepreneur #entrepreneur life #lifestyle #inspirational #inspirational quotes #hardwork #success quotes #life #lifestyle #inspire #inspire daily #hustlehard #success #fitfam #mindset
