Having successfully identified and acknowledged our Top 5 "Must Do's", we are now ready to take action! (See Pt 1. REHAB, Step 3 - "The Action Taker").
Obsession creates rapid progress.
We all speak of finding a balance in our many life endeavours. But in my experience, a balanced approach brings more slow and steady results, and in today’s world slow and steady just doesn’t cut it.
In fact, throughout my whole life, I have had a tendency to approach things with pure obsession and passion, but also putting in methods so not to burn out too soon.

Struggling to make that nutrition plan stick?

Ultimately we are all trying to improve our lives. You want more excitement, more flavour, more fullness. In the strictest sense, you want to become the best version of yourself. We all have that urge to wake up in the morning excited, jumping out of bed with a thirst for life that some of you might not have felt since you were a child.
Your purpose is your driving force in this. Without a purpose how will you make your mark in the world, how will you truly make a difference.

Our brains are hard-wired a certain way from experiences we have had in our lives that shape us into who we are, though in order to change we must do things that can cause us discomfort and break the hard–wire to re-program the brain on a new path.

When you start training with a purpose, with your mind laser-focused on the job like a Special Forces Commando you will enhance your performance ten fold.

“How to remain red dot focused” and maintain a fluid motion forward
“Being hardcore starts with you” – Scott Evennett

Starting from an early age in Soccer and Gymnastics I was always obsessed with the physical. It didn’t matter that I was the only boy in my school doing gymnastics. I was loving it. And unbeknown to me at the time this would shape who I am today, both mentally and physically.
You know a very small percentage of people don't even know what mind control means.
Or how it works.
I'm talking about the ability to control “your own shit”
