The Bottom Line (Ep. 1) New Year’s Resolutions Rarely Work


We have all heard this before:

“New Year, New Beginning!” or  “2017 is going to be my year”

The gym gets crowded for 3 weeks in January, and then it’s back to the same old familiar faces?  The cycle of failure is perpetuated year after year with very few breaking out of their former selves to resolve and follow through.  Why is this?

Greek poet Archilochus said this:

We don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.”


You can have the worthiest goal, yet you will only reach levels that your habits allow you to achieve. The ONLY way you will have success is if you TRAIN to the extent that when faced with an obstacle, you have successful practiced the right response enough times that you have come up with an immediate positive reaction to that obstacle.

Case in point, if hunger gets to you, you have trained yourself to respond with delayed gratification, waiting until the appropriate time to eat. The reality is, I have a very hard time taking a day off from training. Why? Because I have worked out over 10,000 times in the last 30 years. That’s habits for you.

Do you want to achieve amazing things?


“One day at a time” is the mantra.

Choose 3- 4 key things that you MUST do daily, get them done no matter what, and then let the habit form.

I would love to hear your big goal for 2017.  Even better, I would love to hear your 3-4 Daily Actions that will ultimately get you to that goal.
