What if you were stuck, for 3 days, inside a massive gym with 10,000 athletes and 15,000 fans? You would try to gain a deeper understanding of life of course.
Anyone involved in a sport or hobby that consists of growth and performance has a unique opportunity to practice life. There are highs and lows, struggles and successes, victories and defeats, and you get to practice your response to all of it. The more you advance in your passion the more you learn that managing your mind is the key to success. You learn that commitment extends beyond what you feel like doing.

Have you ever wondered, "how come other people don't have to go through this?" Like an event that shatters you or that you have a really tough time shaking off? Do you have seasons where you feel stuck in a funk?
You find yourself wondering, "what do I do now?"
We had the privelege of reading a series of blogs written by a very resilent woman. She shared her experience of overcoming the life event when her father passed away unexpectidly and the very next day her mom died too. Within two days both her parents were gone.
This resilient woman, Kathryn Sanford, is someone who can give you hope when you feel overwhelmed by difficulties or struggle. Her empathy for others who go through similar life events is astounding, and even more impressive is how well she explains how she was able to "just keep moving forward".
In this podcast, you get to hear Jake and Whitney ask powerful questions that help uncover the golden nuggets Kathryn was...
About 5 months ago, I read Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey. It really gave me a better understanding about the perks of training your body to become "fat-adapted". Since I'm not a nutritionist and don't like suggesting anything except for sharing my own personal experience, I won't go into much detail about the science I learned from reading the book. If you are curious, I suggest you purchase the book on Amazon to get a deeper understanding. It's worth the read.
The main reason I wanted to write about this concept of adding a healthy fat into your coffee to substitute for breakfast is that I've gained amazing results from using one of Dave Asprey recommendations, MCT Oil.
When I share with people that I add this to my coffee- most people haven't heard of it and ask- "what's that"? So I'll explain the very basics.
MCT oil is Medium-chain Triglyceride, which are triglycerides whose fatty acids have an aliphatic tail of 6–12 carbon atoms. The fatty acids found in MCTs are called...
Finding your "soul mate" or life-long, best friend, plus romantic partner seems to get harder and harder as the years pass. Even with technology and all the different dating apps, so many ways to meet people, it doesn't simplify the process.
Unfortunately, often times it does the exact opposite of being helpful. All of this can leave us feeling unfulfilled, really busy, and unsuccessful.
Is there anything we can do differently?
Whitney shares how she took a "time-out" from dating to make sure she was the kind of person that the guy she wanted to attract would be attracted to. Sound a little contrary to meeting the right person? She thought so too at first.
After taking this intentional break to refocus, define personal values, and work on personal goals she was able to quiet some external distractions to start making major progress in becoming her BEST self.
Similarly, we've all seen sporting events where things just aren't clicking for one team and they call time-out. ...
What is something you desire to DO or ACHIEVE, but never have been successful at it in the past?
Maybe it's starting a business, losing 30lbs, cutting back on drinking, or earning a spot on a college sports team.
If you've put in any sacrifice towards a goal and failed, you may have been tempted to believe, "I've done this twice before and failed miserably", or "every time I've tried this it hasn't worked for me, so I must not be capable".
There are several obstacles we face when challenging ourselves with ambitious goals.
Some of these obstacles, that commonly occur, may include:
So, how do we overcome those obstacles and get back up again after failing with the belief it's possible?
