"Man it’s hot. It’s like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn’t take this kind of hot." - Biloxi Blues.

Circumstances.

80's #movie quotes aside, saying it's hot in the desert is like pondering the blue of the sky.

It's more than obvious... it's a conversational faux pax. A #crime against observation... As if the rest of us here in AZ somehow didn't notice.

Trust me, we all have.

But that doesn't mean the #work stops. Its just a #circumstance... one that will soon change.

Thinking about it is about as useless as a weatherman in #Phoenix.

Too many times circumstances are #elevated to reasons to stop moving, to break #positive habits and ultimately hurt your #progress.

In these moments, you have an #opportunity to do one of two things: self signal that you will not tolerate #excuses or self signal that you will.

Anytime you use some rationale to avoid keeping your word to yourself, you are telling yourself that you can't #trust yourself.

Self signaling your own weakness.

This will tear at the fabric of your #identity making you believe your are incapable.

But the opposite is also true... in times of #tough circumstance when you self signal that you're going to do the work anyway, hit that workout, or walk to the #gym in 100+ degree heat: You GAIN power.

You feel more trust in your ability to rely on yourself. You #moveanyway.

Ultimately, increasing your self #confidence.

It starts with little things. Commit to making small commitments that you will not break... soon that will radiate out into other aspects of your life.

"Encourage, #lift and strengthen one another. For the positive energy spread to one will be felt by us all. For we are connected, one and all." - Deborah Day.

Warm welcome to Cristina's cousin Luca, who made his north #American debut in the Calgary area to catch up with family.

They're having a blast hitting the #Stampede, Bass Pro, and now an archery range, while I "enjoy" the heat and humidity of #monsoon season here in the Valley.

Oh well... next time.

I want to say thank you and send much love to the #Canadian community who are supporting the @hardwodder project... You guys rock.

Looking forward to some photos of Luca representing the brand and mindset when he gets back to #Sweden.

Looks good on you, brother! Enjoy yourself in Calgary.

"You dance differently when you know you won't live forever." - Wonder Woman.

As a little kid growing up, I was glued to @reallyndacarter's #WonderWoman and Erin Gray's Wilma Dearing <- Google it.

Even as a little guy, without words to describe the draw of these characters, part of me knew they represented many of the qualities I admired in the fair #sex, but couldn't explain as a wee lad.

They were noticeably #beautiful. And to anyone offended by that... fuck off.
Men are visual creatures. If your feminazi ways cause you to be blind to #biology, you are just as big a problem as those who use biology as an excuse for sexism.

They were decisive, #strong and athletic... in an era where that was a rarity in pop culture.

I mean... come on! How much fun would WW be on the playground? You'd want her on your #team.

They embodied #femininity with pride... showed tenderness, protected those in need, and modeled unwaivering #support for those close.

Male characters at that time were all one dimensional... Talk about #stereotypes.

Side Note: I think that's why #JamesBond was so popular then... he was more than a strong man who hit hard.

Anyway, I was undoubtedly influenced by the qualities they modeled in their #story lines.

Maybe that's why I've always had a thing for chicas morenas.

One #brunette in particular.

She's the real life version of all the #desireable qualities I didn't know how to describe as a kid, and so many more I appreciate as her #husband.

Our union is a great #adventure... not one with an imaginary villain, but one with a very real desire to learn and grow into our greatest #potential.

Time here is limited... choose your #dance partner wisely.

"No one is coming." - Nathaniel Branden.

Straighten Up And Fly Right.

My parents would say that to me anytime they saw me stepping out of line.

It was their call for me to examine my behavior and take stock of the #results it may create.

Of course, it never worked... the only thing that really stood a chance of penetrating my thick #skull was my own experience.

I had to learn for myself the most fundamental #truth of this life: Experience will teach you, or it will tame you.

In both cases, it falls on you to be aware... and mine the lessons from your outcomes that will positively impact your #life.

Then, simply apply them.

Sounds #easy. It Ain't.

Only you can do this... it can't be outsourced or given to another.

Knowing this, you clearly see "No one is coming to save you!" in this life or from yourself.

Not because they don't want to, but because the dont have the ability.

They can shine #light on you and reveal a path, but you have to walk it.

No one is coming... and it wouldn't matter if they did. What you want at your #core will override any external #influence.

To realize this is to understand your #power over you.

No one is coming... and, that is your #gift. You got this.

"We all were courageous in the starting moments, few of us stayed courageous till the final moments and the world called them successful men." - Amit Kalantri.

Accept Your Greatness.

What the fuck does that mean? If anything.

10 years ago I pinned this to my pack... surely I should have a clue by now.

I spent 2009 in the presence of people on their journey to #learn more about themselves.

To identify behaviors and thought processes that were not serving them and find ways to "#dance" with them to create more, bigger, and better outcomes.

What I would learn a decade later is that most would fall away from the ideas and #commitments they claimed to be dead set on exploring very soon after.

The #pressure to remain the same would be too great.

Ultimately, they would accept the #greatness of their percieved limitations and environment over other paths.

Some would get involved in #teaching personal development and live in that space... a safe space where the ideas they professed were never #challenged. Thus ending their growth in just the same way as those who fell away.

The meaning of the pin to me is now simple and #clear a decade later.

For me greatness is forever seeking to #expand and #grow while living the tools and teachings of the masters inside the trials of the real wild world.

You live, labor, learn, and #lead... picking up #lessons from the past to apply in the now.

That is the only path to greatness.

It isnt guaranteed, its a percentage play... all that us #guaranteed is failure and stagnation; if you stop the process before you're worm food.

"We all were courageous in the starting moments, few of us stayed courageous till the final moments and the world called them successful men." - Amit Kalantri.

Start... And Keep Starting.

If you're thinking about starting a thing... the mere #act of thinking is your sign.

Don't wait for another one.

Just #move your ass, and you will quickly know if you're on the right path or not... let the results guide you to continue or chose a new path.

Notice, I said "let #results guide you"... there is no greater gauge of your actions.

Is what you're doing netting you positive results? Answer that.

And remember the answer when you "don't feel like it", when "time is short", or the money #excuses come up.

Remember your results when you want to quit, let them be your motivation when your energy is low... and above all lean on them when the other crabs in your barrel start to #pull you down.

And, when you fall short, #fail, or get discouraged... Simply restart.

Restart.

Don't waste #time judging yourself... just start moving again.

As you get more efficient at restarting in those #tough moments, the time you need to reset yourself lessens. And, to the outsider it looks as though you never miss a beat.

Only you know the #challenge... and only you will reap the #reward.

So by all means... Start.

Restart.

Repeat.

"With everything perfect, we dont ask how it came to be instead we rejoice in the present fact as though it came out of the ground by magic." - Friedrich Nietzsche.

Just The Tip, Baby.

That's all I can see of your #life. That's all you can see of mine.

Looking at others, we see the "now #results" they've created rather than the "you've gotta be kidding me" amount of #work they put in.

That setup makes it easy to think other people are #lucky.

And deep down you want them to be... because if they're lucky, and your life isn't where you want it to be; boom! You have an #excuse.

You can overlook all your wasted days, poor choices, and #defensive behavior when someone who genuinely cares for you gave you #feedback you didnt want to hear.

I've been there.

Anyone who knew younger me will tell you I couldn't be taught anything.

But, Forget the #past.

Forget what you think you know about other people.

Forget good or bad and other judgements and #focus on effective or ineffective for a tick.

Is my #action moving me toward my desired outcome? Yes or no.

Thats your question. Thats my #question as I stare at these peaks.

All I see is the tip... the now.

I didn't witness the 20MM+ years of age old volcanic activity that created them.

What I do #witness is my own experience. And, I got where I am because I put in the time and effort.

Lucky is just an insult... or a bad name for a #dog.

★ INSIDE EPISODE 18 – No, You Aren’t Living In Integrity.

Podcast #linkinbio.

Defined: “#Integrity means having a conscience and honoring this conscience even when doing so may involve considerable personal sacrifice. It means placing the dictates of the soul and God above those of the ego..” – Dr. Andy Drymalski, Ed.D.
.
//KEYNOTES.
.
★ Integrity Is Rare And Rarely Used.

Turns out when asked what integrity is… few people can answer the question.

#Wifey and I have been discussing this recently because of our contract.

Some call it #honesty.

Some call it #character.

Some say it is keeping your word.

I think it goes much deeper than that.
.
★ Integrity As Flow.

The word itself comes to us from the Latin meaning sound, complete, or whole.

It implies no division within oneself.

If we take this deeper, we can see that integrity is alignment of our beliefs with our #actions.

It’s not enough to keep our word… The word we keep must align with the #beliefs we hold.

In this way, it flows from our #essence from the inside out… bypassing ego.
.
★ Why Is It So Hard To Do.

Social situations can get in the way.
#Ego shows up.
Small talk example.
Wedding example. //THE HARD TRUTH.

When our actions are based on ego, they generally pull us out of integrity. //ASK AND APPLY.

Ask yourself this: Where in your life are you out of integrity? Work, home life, #relationships, where do you see action that doesn’t align with your beliefs or desires?
.
Once you have your answer, it’s time to do the hard thing.

Apply the concept: Come up with at least one way you can use what you just learned to step into a place that requires you to step toward the #real you, your real beliefs… and without waiting, put it into action.

Like Rumi said, “As you start to walk on the way, the way appears”. What say you? Tell me who you really are below. .

"Everything in Nature contains all the powers of Nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff." - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

You Are In Nature.

Sometimes it's hard to see that... we have built a facade between #humanity and the elements.

Especially in the #west.

But, if you've ever built or remodeled a modern #home, you'll know that what separates you from the full force of natural #life is flimsy at best.

Still, you contain all the #power of nature.

And, you are her most complex #creature.

You carry within you all the seeds of agency and power you need to expand into the most useful and valuable version of #yourself.

Standing in the presence of the power of a #storm last night with wifey, I was reminded just how small one #human being is... and, just how many forces and events had to come together for any human to exist on #earth.

Much less me as an individual. It's humbling to think about.

History is rife with #struggle to get us to this point... yet, the present time is literally the best time in our history.

You hold so much power inside, and in the palm of your hand as you #read this on your device.

If you can access your own power, you can write, build, or broadcast any message or create any #business easier than anyone before you.

The only question is will you #leverage your advantage? Or not.

"I know nothing about form of prayer which can be any induced to work favorably in a mind that is colored, in the slightest degree, by fear." - Napoleon Hill.

Pray, Muthafucka... Pray.

Wifey and I were just talking about our #targets for the rest of the year and the subject of belief and prayer came up.

That led to a discussion of whether it was important or not... which evolved into a discussion of #faith and finally what #prayer actually is.

In the world of development, the common saying is that you have to #believe and have faith that what you want is possible.

I call #bullshit.

If you do the work of a man who wants more money, you will have more #money. If you do the work of a woman who wants a fit body, you will have a #fit body.

Your #belief in the outcome is irrelevant.

Sure, it may color your #attitude or you may derive some form of purpose from your belief, but it's unnecessary for those who do the work.

The #work matters more.

The reps add up no matter your belief system... because the things you want are the result of #action.

Faith without works is dead.

Wifey came to the realization that prayer, whether you think religiously or not, helps to provide focus to your daily work.

By verbalizing or releasing a thought into the world, you are setting your expectations and #outlook for yourself.

Prayer, when used this way, simply gives your #mind focus and an ability to move in the face of fear.

Call it #gratitude practice, meditation, or any other flowery phrase... but what you're really doing is praying.

You're setting or resetting your mind with the intent that your actions become beneficial to yourself and others.

So by all means... pray.

"There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends." - Homer.

The "#Secret" To A Great Marriage.

Eh, that might be a solid ad #headline, but it's hardly anything more.

When I was a wee lad, I had this romantic idea that marriage was about good times and hot #sex.

And it is.

It's also about your #wife taking a photo of you putting on deodorant while she sits on le toilette.

Yep.

Most of the time I can't get her to even close the door when she's in there.

Sorry to burst your bubble, younger me... but that's part of #married life too.

Sharing in the modern world, #amiright? hehe.

Somehow it works... it's all part of this life long bond and #spiritual roller coaster we've chosen into.

We chose.

We did not settle.

The marriage was never about a #ceremony or a ring, those things were fun... and fleeting. It was about the heights could we reach and #power we could generate together.

The wedding was just one of many events we've shared, but our union is part of the longterm plan to learn and grow as people and #partners.

To come together in support and in appreciation of all that we've built and will #build as a power couple.

That's it.

Marriage is the #business of manufacturing the best and most productive couple possible, so that their shared #vision is realized.

And you are always half the business, and only half the business at the same time.

Got a relationship? Drop your wise words below.

"Industry, ardor, courage and suffering are qualities that are needed to get through a CrossFit workout" - Greg Glassman.

HW² 001 - Hotshots 19 Community #Workout was a tough one... but it's always better to sweat with friends.

19 Prescott, AZ firefighters, members of the Granite Mountain #Hotshots, lost their lives on June 30, 2013, while in action.

This was the deadliest #wildfire in Arizona's history.

We thought of them as we suffered through the WOD.

"Always place your becoming above your current being." - Jordan Peterson.

Tears Tell Tales.

They indicate internal conflict... they let us know we are connected to a place, a person, or a state of being.

It's easy to see this in action when you take a saftey blanket away from a child.

The connection is broken. The child screams and cries for it back... to remain as he was... to end the possibility for a life unknown without it.

This does not end as adults... its just that most adults choose not to fall away from the known.

They disconnect from real desires and dreams and settle for comfortable.

That was me.

Disconnected. Unfeeling. Never going beyond what I knew.

10 years ago that changed. I started to reconnect to myself and my desires.

And ever since, I've shed many tears.

Mainly out of a "letting go" of old versions of me and connection with those close who are doing the same.

Just feeling that little death... it's important.

My biz partner welled up yesterday as she expanded into a new behavior causing me to as well, my wife is letting go of an old life in an old house to take on new in the photo.

It's a funeral for an old part of ourselves, and a longing for what may be.

I got choked up talking about a friend of mine who threatened suicide and thought to call me recently in a video.

I wondered would that have happened had I chosen to remain the old me.

Would he be here now. I'm happy I dont have to find out.

"Loyalty to country always... loyalty to government, when it deserves it." - Mark Twain.

Happy 4th, all.

You know... it's almost too easy to forget how far and how fast our young #country has come in its short history.

Easier still to forget the 56 men who put their names on the Declaration of Independence.

They did so knowing they were signing their #death warrant should things go bad.

Yet, they did it anyway.

In a pure act of defiance, they bet it all on a #vision of a better future.

They were loyal to their countrymen and a new vision, not to a remote tyrannical King.

And here we are 242 years later because a few people had the balls to #give all they had for all they wanted.

And though no situation is perfect, they modeled a #spirit of going all in that we can use to #inspire ourselves to greater heights.

The last sentence of the Declaration reads, "We Mutually Pledge To Each Other Our Lives, Our Fortunes, And Our Sacred Honor". Give your all.

We are never more powerful than when we put all of our energy into focused action.

This idea is what drives the latest @HardWodder design.

To Give All You Have For All You Want.

Check them out and drop your thoughts below at #linkinbio.

Enjoy your 4th!

how far and how fast our young country
has come in its short history.

Easier still to forget the 56 men who put
their names on the Declaration of
Independence.

They did so knowing they were signing
their death warrant should things go
bad.

Yet, they did it anyway.

In a pure act of defiance, they bet it all
on a vision of a better future.

They were loyal to their countrymen and a new vision, not to a remote tyrannical King.

And here we are 242 years later because a few people had the balls to give all they
had for all they wanted.

And though no situation is perfect, they
modeled a spirit of going all in that
we can use to inspire ourselves to
greater heights.

The last sentence of the Declaration
reads, "We Mutually Pledge To Each
Other Our Lives, Our Fortunes, And
Our Sacred Honor". Give your all.

We are never more powerful than when
we put all of our energy into focused
action.

This idea is what drives the latest HardWodder design.

To Give All You Have For All You Want.

Enjoy your 4th!

"We all have a dinosaur deep within us just trying to get out." - Colin Mochrie.

Becoming Is About Limitations.

Think about it... there would be no reason to learn and #grow if you didn't face hardship.

It's an immutable #law that growth is predicated on the hard things you attempt... the value of which is who you #become in the process.

One such thing for me has been finding my #voice as a man and #leader.

My entire early #life I was told to tone down my language, be less intimidating, or otherwise shrink from expression because of the way other #people perceived my size or my speech.

This went on so long, that I forgot how to be me in a sense. Like I was my own #imposter.

These past few years, I have been looking for pathways back to myself.

Listening in quiet #meditation and listening for wisdom of the ages.

Some days I think I get a glimpse of #light, then other days I find myself back in the dark.

Lately, I have been letting go of some much familiarity that I feel #fear... like I'm falling and don't see an end.

Ultimately, I know the discomfort serves me... it forces me to #become more than I was yesterday.

To increase #capacity.

But in the moment (many moments lately) solid ground seems as though it will never come.

Maybe this is indicative of being in the right place or on the right path, or maybe not.

All I know is my job is to #listen to whatever is guiding me and not be an impediment for the #greatness that wants to flow through me.

And that, has been a #challenge.

What say you? Tell me who you really are below. .

The 56 Bet It All.

56 men signed the Declaration of #Independence in 1776... they did so knowing full well that if things go poorly with the revolution, they were signing their #death #warrant.

But, they risked it all anyway for they believed in a greater #vision.

They were willing to #give all they had for all they wanted.

The last sentence of the Declaration reads, "We Mutually Pledge To Each Other Our #Lives, Our #Fortunes And Our Sacred #Honor". They were all in.

Are you?. Celebrate the 4th of July... and know why you do.

United.
