My favorite form of exercise is running. Running is great for quick weight loss and maintenance and it just feels good. At the beginning of July I set a goal to be at 10-minute miles by month's end. I'm a warm-weather runner only (and when I say warm I mean hot) so I didn't begin until some time in June, and yes, 10-minute miles in four weeks is a lofty goal for someone who only exercises four months a year. It wasn't always this way. When I lived in Arizona I ran 10 months a year because the weather permitted it.
I didn't make it. I seemed to have plateaued at about 11.5 minutes per mile. Well, that's not ok with me so I began doing a little reading on running and marathon training. I found several strategies that potentially could offer me improvement, implemented a few and I'm pleased to announce that on my run Sunday, August 16, 2015 I broke 10 minutes per mile!
Look at the picture on the right. I broke 10 minutes and shaved almost 60 seconds off each mile in 2 days. If you know anything about running you know that's pretty significant.
In order to get off the plateau and begin improving as a runner I did three things:
I always get life lessons and flashbacks of teaching strategies out of re-conditioning my body to run each summer and this situation is no exception. Here are the things that stood out to me that apply to any area we want to break through in:
As a mentor, I want to you see you succeeding at the things that matter most to you.

In this video I share three powerful tips for stress-free living. Watch and share your thoughts below.
It's always funny to hear little kids say, "You're not the boss of me!" Truth is adults say that, too, although usually in their minds instead of verbally. Well, if we want to succeed - really succeed - in all areas of life, we must learn to follow instructions given by those who're assigned to mentor and teach us.
Watch this short video and share a time when you've followed a mentor's instructions and experienced success.
We must develop, practice and maintain routines and habits that foster success in all areas of life.
I know myself as a person and as a teacher and mentor. I know what I can and can't do. I know what I'm willing to do and not do.
I explained before that mentees need to know what they want before I'll even schedule a phone call with them. That's reasonable. Logical. It's a common business and life practice that successful individuals employ. When they know what they want, I assist them in mapping out a path to get to the Promised Land.
I recently met someone interested in mentoring and I determined after some communication they weren't ready for what I do. In my thinking that was the end of the chain of emails, but they asked why I believed that. Man ... that could speak about relationships. You know how one person keeps charging forward, attempting to establish something that the other doesn't deem possible.
Access to a connection is a test. One of my tests for potential clients ends as soon as they fail to follow free wisdom and instructions given. I believe strongly in the principle that if you're faithful in little, you can be trusted with greater. That being said if you can't do the simple, you're not ready for those uncomfortable changes that save lives. That's what I do. I save lives. I'm not the Savior, but I give the wisdom that stops mentees from perishing for lacking it.
This is part of my life's work because a few years ago I was one perishing for lack of knowledge. I had to submit my life to four different mentors in order to be lifted out of the pit of despair. I submitted, listened and learned well enough that now I'm pulling others out.
If you're ready to turn your life around - and I mean sick and tired of being sick and tired - schedule a call today. If you're so ready that you refuse to live another day in the mess you're in, book a package and begin to elevate.
Learn to schedule enjoyment just as you do work requirements and you'll have a positive work-life balance.

My first and main Mentor inspired the instructions to be doers and not only hearers. If you want a quick piece of advice for success that’s it right there – be a doer and not only a hearer.
I have the most success with mentees who are doers. And when they follow my instructions and do the work, they’ll achieve every breakthrough they’re seeking. It’s a guarantee. That makes for a great mentee: one who listens, receives the revelation and then acts on it. That’s the basics of being a winner. Hear and then do.
Last week I mentioned that being a proficient listener wasn’t natural to me. It’s not natural to anyone. Look at toddlers. We are taught to listen by experiencing the positive rewards it brings. Great mentees hear, receive and do. Poor mentees choose otherwise and remain stuck.
You're a poor mentee if you one who replies to advice given with comments such as, "I know, but ..." and "You don't understand what they did to me." You know what? I know they hurt you. I know what they did was wrong. The problem is you're the one dwelling on it instead of healing and thriving, and they're not. And you very well may "know" with your head what I speak to you, but you haven't implemented the revelation in your heart or life or you would be living abundantly and not in need of the deep work that I do.
I’m a doer. A successful doer, not a spinning my wheels going around in circles because I refuse to change doer. Even when I don’t have someone else walking through a situation directly with me, I still do because I want the next level. Whatever that next level is. For example, I’m sacrificing sleep by working from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. to get to the next levels in a few areas of my life. No one else is walking through this with me, no one else suggested I do it, but I’m doing it because I know I’ll get where I want to be in a specified amount of time.
How do I KNOW I’ll get to the next levels? I know because I’ve made a similar sacrifice before and achieved the results I needed and also because actions have natural reactions and my actions are producing the reactions I desire. I’m not just doing to do. I’m focused and am performing a specific pattern of tasks that lead to specific results. I’m only about 33% of the way through my program and I’ve already experienced more breakthroughs than I can count.
Become a doer. Stop just hearing and not doing and you will succeed. I'm a witness. When you're ready, schedule a call or book a mentoring package. If you need a custom package that we create together, that's perfectly fine. I do it all the time for clients whose budgets are in between one of the standard packages. The goal is to get you to a place where you're experiencing the life of your dreams because it is possible. Time flies, don't wait.
