Ever wanted the determination, drive, and
skill that Tiger Woods possesses?
Wondered what goes through his mind
every single day?
Wondered how he fought back from
an onslaught of haters and self imposed
I think this video sums it up, and is a lesson
for anyone who wants to achieve their
Even if you have had trouble maintaining
momentum in the past…
…that’s OK, you can correct
course and take action today.
Because today is the first day of the rest of
It’s my job to keep you motivated and to
teach you how to get what YOU WANT.

Rise and Shine
6 am and your hand cant make it to the
alarm clock before the voices in your head
start telling you that its…
…and too cold to get out of bed.
Aching muscles lie still in rebellion
pretending not to hear your brain
commanding them to move.
A legion of voices are shouting their
unanimous permission for you to hit the
…and go back to dreamland.
But you didn’t ask their opinion.
The voice you’ve chosen to listen to is one of
The voice that said there was a reason that
you set that alarm in the first place.
So sit up.
Put your feet on the floor and don’t look back
because we’ve got work to do.
Welcome to the grind.
For what is each day but a series of conflicts
between the right way and the easy way?
10,000 streams span out like a river delta
before you, each one promising the path of
Thing is you’re headed upstream and
when you make that choice when you decide
to turn your back on what’s comfortable,
what’s safe and what some would call
Well, thats Day 1.
From there, it only gets tougher.
So just make sure this is something that you
Because the easy way out will always be
Ready to wash you away.
All you have to do is pick up your feet.
But you aren’t going to, are you?
With each step comes the decision to take
You’re on your way now, but this is no time to
dwell on how far you have come.
You’re in a fight against an opponent you
can’t see, but oh, you can feel him on your
heels can’t you?
Feel him breathing down your neck?
You know what that is?
Your fears, your doubts, your insecurities all
lined up like a firing squad ready to shoot
you out of the sky.
But don’t lose heart.
While they are not easily defeated, they are
far from invincible.
Remember, this is the grind, the Battle
Royale between you and your mind,
your body and the devil on your shoulders
who is telling you that…
…this is just a game.
…this is just a waste of time.
…your opponents are stronger than you.
Drown out the voice of uncertainty with the
sound of your own heartbeat!
Burn away your self doubt with the fire
Remember what we are fighting for and
never forget that momentum is a cruel
She can turn on a dime with the smallest
She is ever searching for the weak place
in your armour.
That one tiny feeling that you forgot to
So as long as the devil is hiding the details,
the question remains…
…Is that all you’ve got?
Are you sure?
When the answer is yes, you’ve done all you
can to prepare yourself for battle, then it’s time
to go forth and boldly face your enemy.
The enemy within.
Only now, you must take that fight into the
open. Into hostile territory.
You are a lion in a field of lions, all hunting
the same elusive prey with a desperate
starvation that says victory is the only thing
that can keep you alive.
So believe that voice that says you can run a
little faster and you can throw a little harder,
and that for you the laws of physics are
merely a suggestion.
Luck is the last dying wish of those who want
to believe that winning can happen by
Sweat on the other hand is for those who
know it’s a choice.
So, decide now because DESTINY waits for no
And when your time comes and a thousand
different voices are trying to tell you that
you’re not ready for it, listen instead to that
lone voice of dissent, that one voice that says:
…you are ready.
…you are prepared.
…it’s all up to you now.
So rise and shine.
