We're taught from a young age in sports and school to strive for goals.  

Aim high, set lofty goals, reach for the stars...

Why is it then that so few actually do and even fewer reach those lofty goals?

Goes without being said that any highly sought after endeavor comes with obstacles, sacrifice, self-discipline, work-ethic, and mental toughness.  I can (& often do) beat a dead horse with all those characteristics requ...

There is noticeably a profound difference between someone who has intentions to achieve their goals and someone who has a burning desire to achieve them. 

From a Coaching perspective it's easy to tell the difference.  We see it on the regular at JVH. 

Recently, I've been working harder to understand what pushes peoples buttons.  Any nudge or push I can give to people in order to get them closer to  their goals....

By now, the David Goggins book, Can't Hurt Me is in high demand.  I highly recommend investing in this book, which is the most inspirational story I've heard in a long time.

Ever been stuck in a rut? 

Experience setbacks or failures? 

Set goals and miss them by a mile? 

Chances are you answered yes to at least one of these...

"Strength is never a weakness."

-Mark Bell

Chasing strength in a variety of ways is a lifelong journey. As we grow older, wiser, stronger it's imperative to remember to stick to the basics and always work on the foundation.
