“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.
“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?
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
The statement, “You are what you eat”, may NOT be taken very seriously by the majority of people today.
However, as times goes on that statement is starting to show its truth. More and more people are becoming concerned with eating healthy while staying on a budget.
Eating healthy can become expensive. Learn how to save money and still receive the massive health benefits of healthy eating! Learn if eating organic food is necessary in order to stay healthy!
“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.
“You, and you alone are responsible for the result of how you nourish your body. The LIFE in your food is what counts. Your body is composed of billions of microscopic cells. Your very existence depends on them. They need nourishment, live, active nourishment. It depends on you, and on you alone, whether the food you eat results in nutrition or malnutrition.”
– Dr. Norman W. Walker
Juice Fasting is an integral part of the Awakened Warrior’s Diet and Nutritional Strategy because of the HUGE benefits it provides to our health, bodies and minds.
Not only does it supply your body with the raw, living and nourishing enzymes, vitamins and minerals that it needs to thrive and function at peak physical performance…you’ll also have more energy, clarity of mind and radiating health. BAM!!!
“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.
“What makes Superman a hero is not that he has power, but that he has the wisdom and the maturity to use that power wisely.”
– Christopher Reeve
Very few of us (okay none of us actually, except Superman) were born with Kryptonian DNA, which under the radiation of the Earth’s yellow sun bestow upon us superhuman powers making us virtually invulnerable to anything life may throw our way. No, unfortunately we weren’t blessed with the powers of superhuman strength, lightning speed, x-ray vision, heat vision, super breath or the ability to fly! We were, however, blessed with one power (that Christopher Reeve alluded to in his quote above) and that, my friend, is the power of CHOICE!
“Most of what we need to know about how to eat we already know, or once did until we allowed the nutrition experts and the advertisers to shake our confidence in common sense, tradition, the testimony of our senses, and the wisdom or our mothers and grandmothers.”
~ Michael Pollan
In this day and age humans are smarter and more intelligent than we’ve ever been in the past 200,000 years of our existence. As the dominant and sole survivors of the many hominid species that began emerging and evolving in Africa over 2 million years ago, humans today… Rule the Earth!!! It was our very intelligence that eventually led us away from our “primal” or caveman diet and on to agricultural, animal husbandry and newer methods of feeding ourselves. With the current health care crisis and dramatic rises in obesity and disease, some may wonder if our ‘modern food industries’ are a good thing after all!?
