live your dream

“It is better to risk starving to death then surrender. If you give up on your dreams, what’s left?”
– Jim Carrey

Imagine with me, if you will, that a major pandemic outbreak is rapidly and fiercely spreading throughout the entire world. It’s an airborne pathogen, that has become known as Epidemic Z. A large percentage of the global population has been infected and the virus shows no signs of being contained any time soon.

People are dropping like flies all around you and once you are infected you only have 24 hours to live! The worst part is that you are starting to show some of the symptoms and are afraid you may have contracted the virus.

In a panic, you lock yourself inside of your home and quarantine yourself from the rest of the world. As you desperately pray for a solution or cure for this deadly virus, you’re startled by the loud, shrieking beep alerting you to the radio broadcast message that is about to air.

You MUST Be Willing to Pay the Price of Victory

the price of victory
 Victory is reserved for those who are willing to pay it’s price.” – Sun Tzu

After attending the awesome Victory Motorcycle ride this past weekend, I started to think a lot about VICTORY. Not only victory, but the high price of victory…. and I’m NOT merely referring to the cost of the sweet bikes you’ll see featured in this article…

What I’m talking ’bout is the price we have to pay to be victorious in life!

We all want to live the dream; to be successful in every aspect of our lives. We all want the beautiful, loving wife or strong, loyal husband, the luxurious home, the sweet, pimped out ride and the lean, hard physique of an awakened warrior or goddess.

We ALL want it (or some version of it)… yet only a small percentage of us will ever make it our reality!

“The FDA purposely does not require labeling of GMO food, since no one who understands the issue would ever purchase it. This makes it all the more difficult to locate healthful food.”
– Byron J. Richards

Ever wonder how many products in your favorite grocery store contain GMO ingredients?

If you’re anything like the average consumer – then probably NOT! And that’s exactly how these corporate food conglomerates want to keep it.

The big marketing brains behind these companies know that you will be utterly shocked and repulsed to learn that MOST of the food products they are selling to you and your family are loaded with genetically modified ingredients; ingredients that have been banned in many other countries.

The long-term study of GMO foods is going on in real time and in real life. Not in a lab.”– Ziggy Marley

The question whether we “should” be consuming genetically modified foods (GMO’s) or even consuming animals fed GMO foods is a pressing concern these days.

The majority of people go about their daily lives totally oblivious that they are consuming GMO ingredients.

Do YOU know what genetically modified foods are? Do YOU know if they are safe? If NOT, then this article will educate you about these critical topics.

The reason this issue is of extreme importance is because we must make the right choice soon, before it’s too late. Unless we act promptly, being GMO FREE will be close to impossible and organic foods will become highly scarce.

3 Enlightening Health Benefits of Hiking and Being in Nature

last hike around the lake

“Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.” – Edward Abbey

As I started out on the trail, slivers of the sun shone through the tall, almost naked trees. I peered out across the calm, stillness of the lake as it glistened in the fading warmth of the autumn sun.

My two dogs, oblivious to the magic of this all, were more interested in the smells recently left at the base of a near oak tree. 😆

Suddenly, I knew this was a special moment…. a moment that needed to be captured and remembered on film. As I took out my now obsolete iPhone 3Gs, I wondered…

Why? What made this moment any more special than the other hundred hikes I’ve had around this very same lake on this very same trail?

The ONLY Intelligent Solution to the Health Care Crisis

health care crisis

“I only ate 400 bacon cheeseburgers, 20,000 french fries and drank 100 pounds of sugar this year… why am I feeling bad Doc!?!?” – Average Joe

The health of our nation is declining rapidly while illness and obesity are reaching epidemic proportions. These largely preventive diseases are causing a major burden on the health care system we have in place… And, we all know, it isn’t the most efficient or affordable one to begin with.

I’m not going to pretend that I have all the answers or even know all the ins and outs of the health care crisis America is now facing. Still, one thing I do know is that the government is NOT the solution to the health care crisis.

how to gain muscle

“Body mind masters take an easy, relaxed, progressive approach while working within the higher reaches of their comfort zone, thereby avoiding the burnout that accompanies a stressful approach to training.”
– Dan Millman

If there is one thing I wish I would have known when first starting out on my quest to attain a warrior’s physique… it would have been the secret of how to build muscle without killing yourself in the process! 😯

When you’re young you can get away with all types of brutal training and seemingly bounce back unscathed, yet in the end it will catch up with you. Therefore, I don’t recommend pushing yourself to the extreme and killing yourself in the gym. Instead, I suggest a more enlightened approach.
