HAPPY MONDAY MY WONDERFUL PEOPLE

It’s a brand new week and a new opportunity to get some new things started in our lives. What an amazing opportunity we all have before us. We have the power to steer our lives in the right direction – But what direction do you chose to steer your life in?

If we lack MOTIVATION, we have no chance of moving forward as MOTIVATION is the driving force which keeps us pushing…Would you agree?

Secretly, MOTIVATION is the driving force behind most successful people in our world today…

Research successful people, and you will find that most, if not all of them are driven by:

MOTIVATION + GOALS = SUCCESS

If you want to get in shape but lack MOTIVATION, the chances are pretty “slim” that you’ll ever reach your goal…Would you agree?

This is why staying MOTIVATED is so important in our day to day life if we are to ever reach success.

How many people do you know in 2015 that deem themselves as successful?

You see, we live in a society where people put themselves down and find it hard to love themselves even…

This combined with self doubt and low self esteem leads to a road of misery and we DO NOT have to live like this!

I don’t want to deviate too much y’all, so I will leave it as that today.

But learn to love yourselves people, learn to smile more and keep MOTIVATED

You will find that your life start’s to improve dramatically 🙂

Roll Safe and Let’s Keep Making This Thing Happen

Stay in Shape This Winter With Dee

Hey Guys,

How’s it going out there 🙂

Coming up to the Christmas period is a time where the pounds start piling on and all the guys in the gym start “Bulking” –  A term used within the Bodybuilding/Fitness community, whereby dudes eat an over excessive amount of food for the love of the muscle LOL. I did at one time take part in such extreme eating.

But healthy eating is always the way forward and should be adopted as apart of your lifestyle.

Let’s face it, getting in shape and staying toned can be tricky, especially during the festive period. If you feel like your exercise regime has hit a wall, or you just want to give your efforts a boost, you might be interested in the various bodybuilding supplements now available.

For example, bodybuilding experts such as Monster Supplements offer creatine. This is a compound that’s involved in energy production within the body, so it plays an important role in health and fitness. If you’re interested in the sciencey stuff, it’s a nitrogenous organic acid that is produced in the liver. It helps to supply energy to cells around the body, especially those in the muscles. Creatine is made naturally in the body, but you can also get it from certain foods and supplements.

Because of its ability to supply energy where it’s most needed, many athletes and fitness enthusiasts take creatine supplements to help raise their performance levels. It can help them to train harder and compete more effectively. If you’re wondering whether this product could assist you, take a look at the following benefits of creatine.

Improving strength

creatine

One of the main reasons people take this supplement is to bolster their strength levels. Because it helps the body to generate more energy, it can make lifting that extra weight or completing a few more reps that little bit easier.

Research conducted by a team at Charles Sturt University in Australia found that creatine can increase maximum performance and power in high-intensity anaerobic repetitive work. The scientists, who published their research in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine, suggested that it could raise performance levels by as much as 15 per cent.

Increasing muscle mass

Creatine also boosts water retention, and this can have the effect of making muscles appear larger. When the substance is inside muscle cells, it attracts surrounding water and this can cause muscles to look bigger and more toned. If you’re trying to build up rippling abs and bulging biceps, this is something to bear in mind.

Improving muscle recovery

The compound is also thought to boost muscle recovery after exercise. If you’re hitting the gym hard, you’ll know how difficult it can be to keep up an intense fitness regime. Trying to start a workout when your muscles are aching and tender can be a real chore.

Experts believe that creatine supplements can help to reduce protein breakdown following intense exercise. This may mean the products make it easier to stick to gruelling exercise plans.

Other potential health benefits

It’s not only in the world of bodybuilding and fitness that creatine is causing a stir. It’s now believed that the substance could help to promote health in range of circumstances. For example, a study published in the Journal of Neurochemistry found that the substance might be useful in treating neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s.

Meanwhile, a team from Ruhr University Bochum in Germany discovered that creatine could help to improve the strength of people who suffer from muscular dystrophy. The experts conducted short and medium-term experiments and revealed that treatment with the supplement improved muscle strength and was well-tolerated.

Creatine may even prove useful in treating depression. Researchers from three South Korean universities discovered that women with depression who added five grams of the compound to their daily antidepressant responded twice as quickly to the medication and experienced remission of the condition at twice the rate compared with women who only took the antidepressant.

See for yourself

If you think creatine could benefit your health regime, you can purchase the supplements online. Of course, it’s important to bear in mind that supplements of any kind shouldn’t be seen as a substitute for a healthy diet. Instead, they should be taken alongside balanced and nutritious meals.

Look out for the next winter special where I’ll be bringing you my secret dietary tips that’ll be sure to help you keep trim throughout the up n coming festive period.

Until next time – Eat well and Stay Motivated

Happy Monday Folks 🙂

How are we all doing on this fine Monday?

I see the motivational content is helping you chase your dreams and goals…

This really does fill me with joy and I’m glad I can help where I can.

Thank you for the emails and kind messages – It does mean a lot to me 🙂

My schedule is filling up thick and fast again but I have made a conscious effort to try and do at least ONE post a week. Lord knows I would write for a living but I haven’t found a way to make money from it YET…

I have many ideas and concepts for books I want to write, but I’m just waiting until I have some space on my time table to focus on writing a best seller (Put some good thoughts out there for me please…It cost you nothing 🙂

Anyhoo,

Let’s talk motivation as it seems to ALWAYS be a topic of conversation around me (And around you I’m sure)

Today I will talk about some methods in which you can use to help make that dream come true by staying motivated. I have discussed some of these methods before, but it’s vital that we go over them to ensure we have fully grasp the concept of what is required to utilise them for the great tools that they are.

So without further delay, let’s get stuck in…

5 Tools of Motivation

1) What is your why?

When we get half way through a goal, it’s easy to forget why we even started in the first place. Have you been in this situation before?

It gets to the point where you may sometimes think:
“This has become way to tiresome now, why am I even doing this again?

Sometimes we need that fuel to add to our fire and help us remember our “Why”.

This remembrance will help us to bring fourth that passion which got us started up in the first place. Always focus on your “Why” when you start to loose hope.

2) Visualise/Imagine

Since we were children we have been using our imaginations. Most people imagine the worst as we live in a fear based system but we should use our imaginations for positivity and to better our lives.

Imagine how good you will feel once you have gone through the pain and hustle of reaching your goal/dream.

A woman after 9 months goes through the pain of delivering a baby. However, once she has gone through that pain, she has the beauty and joy of a  new life that has delivered.

The same cane be said for when we are reaching for our dreams. We may (very likely) go through some pain and struggle, be prepared for it. However, once that pain has subsided, we can then look forward to our blessings and new joy in life.

Everything has a gestation period and has to go through a process before it comes to
fruition. Please remember that…

3) Set Way Points

Way point’s help you to track your progress over a period of time. There’s nothing worst than going through 90 days of struggle to reach a point where you feel like you haven’t achieved much because you can’t identify  with “how much you HAVE actually achieved”.

I find that a lot of the time, people have come so far in life from where they once were but choose to focus on where they are at present and complain that they are not where they WANT to be rather than focus on how far they’ve come…

Sound familiar…

Measure your progress and use it as motivation for how WELL you are actually doing…

That’s right…Big yourself up…It’s not ego, it’s claiming and reaping the happiness for what YOU DESERVE!

4) Share, Share, Share – Share with friends and family what you’re up too – There’s nothing more embarrassing than someone asking you 2 months down the line how your project is coming along for you to turn around and tell them:

“Yerrrr, about that….”

LOL

Stick to your word!

5) How will it improve your life?

Life is all about change and improvement – If you’re not moving, creating, expressing and loving what you do, what are you doing?

Usually, in order for us to change our life’s, it involves us having to change a current routine or to try/do something different – Leaving our comfort zones so to speak.

Upon our journey to success though, we will find MANY MANY SET BACKS.

But ask yourself:

How will not giving up improve my life?

If I keep going through the tough, will it be worth it?

By not giving up, can I improve others lives around me?

Sometimes our dreams/goals include others (Our children or spouse maybe)

So even though our focus is on self, we must remember the people around us that are also counting on us as we are very much needed in this life time (more than we may know)

Conclusion

I’m here for you guys and can see the potential in everyone collectively and individually…

Believe in yourself and know that you can make your dreams a reality if you say:

“Enough is enough – It’s my time”

I love you all

What’s up my wonderful people?

How are we all doing on this fine Monday?

I’m here to bring you some more motivation today as motivation is what keeps us going through rough times & difficult situations, without EVER giving up. It’s what keeps us going when we are on the verge of “wanting” to give up…

It appears that ALOT of people loose hope when Monday morning comes around…Am I right?

They’ve enjoyed the weekend sooo much that work seems like the biggest drag ever…

I’m sure that’s why Eric Tomas makes “Thank God It’s Monday” every week 🙂

Look at it like this though: Things could be so much worst…

It’s easy to complain about our current situation, I use to do it…

But when you look at the bigger picture at what is going on around us in the world today, it’s easy to see that we’re not doing too bad 🙂

Imagine if you had no food to eat whilst starvation was upon you?
Imagine living on the streets throughout the winter period?

Imagination is a powerful tool to help you see that “All is well”

Anywhoo,

I want to discuss motivation with you today…

Being a personal trainer/nutrition advisor, I’ve heard every excuse under the Sun LOL…

Here’s a few:

“I had no time Dave, you know, with work n all”
“It was raining outside buddy…”
“Dave, you know how it is, KFC is just so tempting”
“Healthy food is boring Dave, I really can’t do this”
“It’s too much effort man – I will just take fat burners instead”

Heck, I may have even used some of those excuses myself in the past…

However, one thing I’ve come to learn about excuses is that they are just:

“Really Good Stories”

It’s a story we create and tell ourselves on a daily basis to make us feel better. Think about it…

Somehow along the way of becoming a great story teller, we actually believe our own story LOL…

Us humans really are something else…

We then tell our friends and family:

“Arghh man, I was going to the gym for a month or two but I stopped as it took up way too much of my energy. I also started to eat sugar again to keep my energy levels up also”.

People come up with such a bizarre crazy stories and really believe them LOL

It’s all good though as I know this fitness way of life isn’t easy.

It does take work and dedication to keep your nutrition in check.

It does require effort to work out 3-4 times a week whilst working a job (Just Over Broke) and juggling family and social life…

BUT it can be done if you make the time and are “Motivated” enough to stick to it…

Do you have heart? Do you have what it takes?

YES YOU DO!

Are you prepared to sacrifice something you love to get to where you want to be?

Only you can answer that one my friend…

Do you give up when it get’s tough?

Maybe before you did, but not after reading this…

YOU CAN CREATE WHATEVER IT IS YOU WANT IN LIFE…

It all depends on what you are willing to put in though?

When I was preparing for my first Bodybuilding/Fitness show, motivation was the only thing that kept me going…

Did I want to give up at times…HELL YES!

I even doubted myself at times…

I had to sacrifice foods I loved as they were no good for my goal…

I had to come out of my comfort zone and train harder than I ever had trained before as I was competing against the best physiques in Europe…

I had to believe in myself!

No one else can believe in you if you don’t have self belief first…Remember that…

I had to wake up at 5.30am in the morning to go to the gym. I then got to work tired only to work a 8 hour shift and still went back to the gym for round 2 of training in the evening. That’s my story but not one filled with excuses…

Too many of you are good story tellers…

Like I say, I know how it is – I’m human as well…

But don’t let story telling (excuses) be the reason why you don’t excel and move forward in your wonderful life…

Do you know that whatever created you also created you to create abundance in your life?

Our mind is a gift that allows us to make our thoughts a reality – Did you know that?

Did you know that you are more powerful and special than you may perceive at this moment in time?

If not, work with me on reclaiming your power and live the HAPPY LIFE that you deserve to live – I’m not joking here!

What other way is there to live? Really think about this my people…

A new job…

A new state of mind…

A new you…

It is all possible if YOU REALLY WANT IT…

I love you guys!

Hey Guys,

I linked up with my brother from another mother on Thursday for a Leg session and captured some footage for you guys 🙂

This is the first of many videos to come from us. We have plans of getting a professional camera man to take things to the

next level, but for now enjoy.

After the brutal Leg session, watch us as we discuss our philosophies on Bodybuilding & how it relates to other areas of life.

Although we only captured the end of our session, it’s enough to show you why we get the results we do…

Pushing ourselves to the ultimate limit and then pushing some more, until we have NOTHING left!

Enjoy guys and I’ll be back soon…

Hey Guys,

Just here to give you some mid week motivation.

We all know that the road to success or the road to reaching our goals is an on-going process.

People ask me all the time what keeps me motivated. Truth be told, I use MANY tools to keep me focused and I will continue to share them with you all throughout the year as I have done for the past 16 months.

There are many times where I find myself lacking motivation, we all go through it. This is why we must do what it takes to stay on track and to keep on pushing forward.

The only person directing your life is you…

The question is though:

What direction are you going???

Hey Guys,

I hope you’re all well.

I just came across this video on Youtube by my main man Tony Robins and thought I’d share it with you all. A short video but a powerful message never the less.
