You're never too old to ask for help

You're never too old to ask for help

June 11, 2021

I recently competed in my first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) competition as a white belt in the "old" man's division.

I lost one via points and won one via submission.

Not bad for an old man.

To be honest, if it wasn't for my BJJ Coach and marine veteran, Tyler Boone, my experience would have been completely different.

Without my BJJ Coach, I don't think I would have pushed myself hard enough to compete. 

Yet, Tyler knew I wanted to compete.


He pushed me to get better. To reach my goal of competing in a BJJ competition.

I share this with you to remind you how important it is to have someone in your corner rooting for you... and... more than willing to give you a kick in the ass when you're slacking.

If you want to get to the next level, reach a goal, or achieve something you think is impossible, get help.

Asking for help is the only reason why my first competition as an "old man" was a success.

Coaches are the secret to reaching your objective faster.

The best way to get a coach is to ask for help.

Never Quit, Never Surrender, Always Forward!

The Internal Journey of Weight Loss
The Internal Journey of Weight Loss

October 25, 2021

When I’ve seen colleagues, friends, and family recently there were consistent comments of “You look like you’re half the man you were!”  

My typical response to this is, “Half the man on the outside, but twice the man on the inside.” And to this, I usually get quizzical looks.  

Most people who see the obvious external weight loss and transformation have no idea of how much more of a transformation occurred within the mind of the person.
