New Year, New You

There are 364 other days out of the year for you to start a new chapter in your life. (1 January 2018) Meaning, you don’t need to make a New Year’s resolution if you are truly serious about:

  • Doing something new and/or courageous.
  • Committing to some self-reflection exercises.
  • Dedicating more time to your family and significant other.
  • Being the person that you were born to be and not what people think you should be.
  • Implementing a training regiment that offers no room for you to quit because your health and future are worth it. 
  • Making the decision to be happy about every new day because life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you. 
Change starts with you.

Forget about the overplayed clichés about the 1st of the year; take action today! Stop wasting valuable time. Your life has more value than you realize.

Being a Man = Not a Free Pass

Just because you have the title of: male, man, or guy, it does not give you the right to talk down to others; especially women! 

  • It doesn’t matter how much money you make in comparison to them. 
  • It doesn’t matter what type of occupation you hold.
  • It doesn’t matter how you were raised.

Those examples are just excuses! When a man yells, insults, and talks down to a woman, all they do is demonstrate their insecurities. (The same goes for when they do this to other men, too.) Trust me, when a man acts this way, other men and women recognize it even if that particular man believes that his actions are justifiable. 

The inflection in your voice does not validate your opinion.

It’s time that we show women (and men) respect because that’s someone’s daughter, sister, mother, and friend and they wouldn’t like it if the shoe were on the other foot.
