Inaction is Action

I talk about goals all of the time. Not just setting them but reviewing them and then following through with them— or as I love to call it– taking MASSIVE ACTION!!!

That is the only way to move forward with your life.

You can set all the goals you want– write them down, put them on your bathroom mirror, whatever….. But if you don’t take action towards them, nothing will ever happen. Your basically stuck in life on a race track, always turning left. You may think things are happening because things are going fast in your life, things are moving. But nothing is really happening.
Goal_Setting

The opposite of action is INACTION!

Inaction is worse then anything. In all reality, it is a decision. It is a decision not to do anything. So in a sense it is ACTION!  

act-now3
Take for instance someone who joins a gym. Things are really going to start to change, right?

Maybe. Maybe Not.
procrastinate2

That person comes home from a long day at work and says ‘I’m too tired to workout today’. That’s your decision, that’s your inaction, that is your action.


This is the kind of action that becomes a habit and a bad one.


Someone signs up for a group fitness program, comes for a few sessions, doesn’t see results, doesn’t ask for help, and stops coming. Then blames the program for not getting the results.


But it’s not the program, it’s that SOMEONE who decided to take the NON ACTION.
The action NOT to do something is just as strong and most times even stronger then actually DOing something.

Laziness

Usually the decision not to do something is putting something off that you need to do, but you just don’t want it bad enough.


‘I’ll learn a new language when I have the time, I’ll go back to school, I’ll start working out again……. I’ll start my diet on the first of the month but for the rest of the month I’ll eat all the crap I want.’



YOU are responsible for YOU!


‘A volunteer is someone who takes full responsibility for the quality, path, and design of his/her life. A victim is someone who blames outside forces, such as the circumstance, bad luck, and/or one’s parents, for the quality, path and design of his her life period. A volunteer is awake, or ‘present’ to the surrounding environment and provides support and positive energy to others. A victim is self absorbed, and drains others of their energy. A volunteer feels blessed for the quality of his/her life, despite obstacles and circumstances. A victim feels victimized by obstacles and circumstances.’


-Jack Schropp, Commander Navy Seals (Ret.)

 

What do YOU want?

Figure it out, write it down, and then DO! Take action to go get it.

take-action

Don’t know where to start? Don’t have the necessary skills or knowledge to get what you want right now?

That’s ok, somebody does. Somebody has been in your exact position where you are right now, and they made the necessary changes to change and move forward with their life. And so can you.


Out there on Earth, where ever you are, you have access to some book, some audio program, some DVD, some coach, some school, some mentor, some website, something….. That can help you get what you truly want.
And if you truly want to be the best at it, or get good at it or even  just be average at it, then you are going to have to invest your time and money into it.

Getting what you want out of life isn’t about ‘how much is it going to cost me?’ it’s about investing in yourself. Both time and/or money.

No investment, no change.

No change, you stay where you are, making excuses about what might have been.

But all of that can stop in an instant.

You just got to stop taking inaction and not doing and move yourself to taking massive action and actually doing. Your life will change.


take_action_1


I’m no mind reader. I have people and clients that email me all the time about this topic or that. They are taking action, reaching out for help on a subject that matters to them.
And then I have clients and newsletter readers that don’t ask any questions, so I assume you’ve got everything handled. And that you’ve gone through the other nutrition, fitness, ebooks, videos, and emails I have out there and they are taking action towards implementing some of that stuff. But I’m always there in case they need me. They just need to ask.


So I ask you,  what are you going to do right now to take action and accountability to get what you want?


What book are you going to read, what coach are you going to hire, what person are you going to ask, what DVD are you going to watch, what website are you going to visit, what food are you going to eliminate, what workout are you going to do, what are you going to do?

What are you going to do to become the strongest person you can be?


What are you going to do to become the Improvement Warrior?

People procrastinate the most on either their health or wealth. What are you putting off that needs action right now?

Box Breathing- Stress Relief Technique

Jason Yun takes you introduces you to box breathing and takes you through a cycle of it. This is excellent to clear your mind and relieve stress. This is something that I picked up from Mark Devine, Former Navy Seal Commander and creator of Unbeatable Mind. This is what we use everyday before our Improvement Warrior Yoga Practice in Hilliard, OH.

Hey! What’s up? It’s Jason Yun, LBNOnlineFitness.com, Improvement Warrior Fitness. I’m sitting here in my car and we are stuck in traffic. I just wanted to show a quick technique that I use routinely when I am driving. I was listening to Podcast (earlier). Most people get stressed out with traffic. It’s 12:45, so it’s an accident but it’s not even rush hour but most people get stressed out with traffic and there’s no reason to do that so I just wanted to show you a stress relieving technique that I do. It’s called Box breathing. (In) box breathing, what you do is you inhale for 5 seconds then you hold at the top of 5 seconds then you exhale 5 seconds and then hold that for 5 seconds and as you get better at it you just increase the time. I’ve worked my way for about 10 to 12 seconds for each now. There’s an app in a link down below. It’s Pranayama by Seagara. It’s a pretty cool app. I do it every day.

196792901_422ddcfd57_z

But basically, what you do is breathe in for 5 seconds, hold 5 seconds, exhale 5 seconds and then hold that for 5 seconds. As you breathe in, you breathe in through your ujjayi breathing. I’ll probably make another video for it. It’s an excellent way to breathe, actually I have a link that will take you to a thing you can download so I can take you through it. But it’s basically breathing to the back of your throat kinda like you are folding up glasses or Darth Vader. So now we’ll try box breathing alright.

 

Breathe in for 5 seconds. Ready go.

Hold.

Exhale.

Hold.

Inhale.

Hold.

Exhale.

Hold.

and breathe in.

 

And basically, that’s three cycles. It’s basically all you do, helps relives stress, helps to improve your breath control so it’s always good for your mind. There are only two things you can control in your life at all times and those are your thoughts and your breath. Well, if you are underwater, you can’t control your breath. So that’s box breathing, alright. I’ll put those links down below. And don’t get stressed out by traffic. Don’t get stressed out by people. Live a positive life. Stay strong. Stay positive. Be the improvement warrior!

 

When is the right time…….NOW!

I hear it all the time.

‘It’s just not the right time for me.’
OK. When is the right time?
 
What exactly are you waiting for? 
 
The stars to align up perfectly?
 It never is the right time. Things are always going on. Things are always going to come up.
*
Here’s the latest one I received:
‘Jason,
            Sorry this was not the right time for me to try your workouts. It’s been a little rough with my sister’s passing. Thanks for checking but I will not be continuing with the training.
Thanks’
*
Now I know you are saying have a heart the guy’s sister passed. But guess what— that is life. That is an example of things happening.
But what if your mom died, or your dad, or your brother, or sister, or spouse or friend or whoever?
*
Is that going to control you from taking control of your life. 
*
When is the right time? 
I’ll tell you exactly when the right time is—–
*
It’s when YOU MAKE IT THE RIGHT TIME!
take action now in spite of fear and doubt mindtamer
People are so afraid to make changes. They try and avoid it as much as they can.
Because change requires work. Usually a lot of work and hard work.
So going from coach potato to working out is one of the hardest things to do.
Switching careers or jobs from a position you hate is hard.
*
‘I Hate this job but I’m good at it, or it’s super easy, and it pays the bills. If I get another one I’ll have to apply and go through interviews and meet new people, and…….. oh I’ll just stay here and be miserable until the time is right.’ 
*
The Pain isn’t great enough to move forward and out of that situation. Being comfortable is being average. Do you want to be average, or to you want to live extraordinarily.
Back to the original example with the person’s sister dying.
Don’t you think that person’s sister wants what is best for them? I would find it hard to believe that anyone’s sister would not want that. But my sister, your sister, this person’s sister, that person’s sister cannot get inside of YOU and internally motivate you to do it.
*
Whatever the IT is.
It’s up to you. You have to find the reason you want to change.
Whether it be to move away from pain or towards pleasure.
*
If you are overweight the reasons that might motivate you to change might be:
– diabetes
– heart disease
– embarrassment
– shortened life
– your kids are embarrassed by you
– not able to do certain activités
*
Pleasure reasons might be
*
-attract a  partner
– self confidence
– stronger
– healthier
– move better
– pick up a sport
*
the lists go on and on.
But the reason has to push you to change. To change away from whatever you want. It can’t just get you to talk about it. SHOW ME!
Show me how bad you want it!
*
Homework for you— No Joke. Do this if you are not doing it. 
*
Sit down, no distractions, turn off your phone, turn off facebook, turn off the TV. 1-2 hours sit down and figure out what you want in life.
*
What you really want in life?
 
Are you where you thought you were going to be when you hit your age? 
Are you doing what you want to be doing? Can you see yourself doing it for the rest of your life?
*
Do this, do not put it off!
*
Ask yourself the hard questions?
  • are you overweight or obese?
    • do you want to be?
  • are you in the relationship you want to be?
    • is it supporting you towards who you want to be and grow to become?
  • Are you going to school for the right reasons? Or is it because you feel culturally obligated or family obligated?
  • Do you like your job or career?
  • Are you sad all the time?
  • Are you anxious all the time?
*
Those last three was all about me. And then I found my passion. The reason I was put on this earth. It turned my life around.
*
I wasn’t put on this Earth to make collection calls to people that didn’t pay their pay day loans and yell at them all day and piss them and myself off, and cause me to be depressed and sad everyday I left and went into work. That wasn’t the life for me.
*
Enough was enough. I made the change, and so can you.
Do it!
Do the HOMEWORK I assigned in this email.
Send it to me if you want!
*
This is life. Don’t go through life  living dead.
*
Stay strong, Stay Positive, Be the Improvement Warrior!

The True Way Lasting Change- Daily Spiritual Practice

inner calm and spirituality will change your life

I have started to do a daily spiritual practice and daily practice that has literally changed my life. And I know it will change yours too.

I know what you are going to say and it’s what most people say when coming up with a reason why not to do something that they need to do—-

‘I don’t have time’

This is exactly what I thought. And you know what? Now that I do my daily practice and sadhana (daily spiritual practice) I have more time then I used to.

You see the mind is full of thoughts running wild and taking us all over the place. Something a lot of people call the Monkey Mind. Places we don’t want to be, things or people we don’t need worry about, situations we have no control over. And it is constant, all day, unless we are asleep, and some people still have their minds running while sleeping.

UNLESS you turn off your mind! And de-connect with the world.

My daily practice consists of several things. Here is a list and the meaning of each for me:

  1. Meditation– To me this is the most important and has had the most profound impact on my life. I started doing this in June of 2012. I usually listen to a guided meditation where it takes me some place or it focuses on a certain aspect that I need to be more aware of like breathing, love, body, nutrition, positivity, etc…. This is also a time where I absorb the things I have learned throughout the day, brining them into my subconscious so that I am able to eliminate all the clutter and just focus on the important things that really matter to me. You can read this post about my failings with meditation the first time I tried it here. 
  2. Warrior Yoga– This form of yoga was created for the Martial Arts. I am not a martial artist, but I do love their discipline and I now love Yoga. If you would of told me in bodybuilding days that I would be doing Yoga daily I would of knocked you out. This is my abiltiy to connect my breathing to body movements and poses. It also clears the mind, as I am totally present in what i am doing and not concerned with the daily noise that the world thinks is so important. In the Mindtamer program we teach you that breath and thoughts are the two things we can control. Some of the moves are challenging for me, but with daily practice I get a little bit better each day. Yoga is meditation in movement.
  3. Box Breathing– This is a breathing practice, or Pranayama, that helps to get in better control with the breath. The better control you are of your breath, the better you can control your mindset, thoughts, emotions, and actions. Which result in being in better control of your life. As I go through a meditation certification I am constantly learning new pranayamas, sometimes I switch them out for box breathing as well.
  4. Resistance Band stretching– Stretching with bands is the best way to increase dynamic flexibility. And life is dynamic, we are never static and in the same place. Flexibility is important just as strength training or nutrition is. Use it or lose it. If a joint or muscle is restricted it is opened up for injury and lack of mobility. I do not want my body to have a lack of anything which is why I stretch with the bands.
  5. Reading– I’m always reading or listening to books on tape. Highly recommend getting the Audible App (click the banner above). Books on business, motivation, mindset, change, finances, nutrition, fitness, strength coaching, philosophy, and a lot navy seal/army books. Education should never stop after ‘regular’ schooling. I’ve learned more since 2007 then I did in my entire life. ‘Reading is the mental food’ -Bruce Lee
  6. Reading Motivational Documents– I have some documents that I read at least 5 times a week. These documents include Keckich’s Credos- which are 100 philosphy tips that he created. They are awesome. Google Keckich’s credos, you won’t be sorry. It’s a document we gave to all Mindtamers as well. Other things I read are the Optimist’s Creed, I go back through an old book and re-read the highligthed sections, my monthly/quarterly/yearly goals, My Rules for my life, My 10 year vision, and 34 Business Maverick ideas from Yanik Silver. Finally I read a quote from my motivating quotes that I’ve downloaded over time. All of these things really keep me motivated to stay on track and keep moving forward.
  7. Gratitude Journal– Every night I write in my journal just expressing everything that I am happy for and grateful for. Things that happened that day, or people, or places. Really makes me realize how awesome my life is and that complaining does nothing because we are here for such a short period of time and we need to make the best of it.

Do you do any type of spiritual practivce or daily practice that makes you feel good? Let me know about it.

I guess I left one off the list and that would be my training, or workout. I usually try and get 5 in a week. Physical and mental fitness go hand in hand.

Bceoming more spiritual is one of the main things we try and instill in people going through the mindtamer program. It’s something that I know can change your life around, especially if you are not doing anything now. It’s something even just at the beginning of 2012 I never would of thought I’d be doing. But I was closed minded. I opened my mind and eyes and it entered me into a completely different lifestyle, frame of mind, and a new passion!

Give it a try! It’s only $1 for the first 14-days of Mindtamer.

Practice makes perfect!

How I Failed with Meditation– Initially

In mid-2012 I started meditating. It has been the most wonderful, life changing experience in my entire life.

But it wasn’t always easy-going. I tried it before a few times and I quit each time after.

I had bought a book from Yogani called Deep Meditation. Read through it and was very excited to get started.

In the book Yogani recommends using a mental saying if ‘I AM’ when breathing. I did this. But the problem is I would get lost, my mind would start wondering all over the place. I really could only do it for 3-5 minutes before losing attention.

I kept trying though, I did it for about a week straight. Every time I did it I did feel a lot better, even though it was only for 3-5 minutes. But then after about a week I wasn’t doing it everyday, it was like every other day, and then sometimes once every 3 days. I knew there was benefit to doing it. I felt better doing it. But I let other things get in the way of doing it.

So I quit doing it all together. I had more important things to do at the time, I thought and reasoned to myself. And with the in frequencies I was doing it with, I wasn’t feeling it as good as when I was doing it consistently.

It was about 3 months until I tried it again. But the same thing happened. After about 5 or 6 days straight, inconsistency started, and then I quit again.

I was like how do people do this for 10, 20, 30 minutes or more. I can’t even do it for 3 minutes a day!

It was so hard for me to sit in silence, each time thoughts would come up about this thing in the past, or that thing I need to do in the future. I wasn’t IN the meditation or in the moment. I couldn’t clear my mind.

It was about another 4 months before I would get involved in meditation again. I signed up for a mental training program and one of the first things coach introduced us to was mediation.

But this meditation was different. He was speaking to you the entire time. It was a guided visualization meditation. It was about 15 minutes long.

The first time I came out of it— WOW!

I can do this everyday! That was freakin’ awesome!

Having someone tell you exactly what to concentrate on was a whole lot easier than sitting in silence and focusing on ‘I AM’. And the way I felt was truly amazing. Granted unwanted thoughts would pop up periodically throughout the guided visualization but it was a lot easier to focus back to the words being spoken and focus on my breathing.

Eventually I got an app on my Iphone as well, called Relax Melodies Oriental, which has different kinds of ambient sounds and music that I listen to when I meditate.

Now if I miss a day I feel it. My emotions and anxiety are turned up a notch. It has basically become my ‘drug’.

So what was the difference between my failing to practice meditation and then becoming successful at it and longing for it and needing it? 

1- I didn’t realize there were other methods of doing it out there. I read the Deep Meditation book and thought that was how you meditate. Not knowing there are literally hundreds of different ways to do so.

2- I didn’t make it a habit. Doing something for 7-10 days is not going to form a habit. It takes a minimum of 21 days. All new things are hard, but with practice it gets easier.

3- I didn’t make it a priority. When I was practicing the ‘I AM’ meditation I basically was just like I’ll do it when and if I have time. Sometimes I would have time, sometimes I wouldn’t. With the guided visualizations, after the first one I  started scheduling in my daily to do list everyday since. I made it a priority.

You can literally take this lesson about me and my failing with meditation and transcend it into any area of your life.

For instance Working out and losing body fat.

1- Other methods- There are literally hundreds of ways to workout. Don’t like one, find another.

2- Make it a habit- Start off slow whenever starting a new workout plan, and then build up from there. You need to build up your strength, conditioning before moving up in levels. Doing stuff too fast will result in pain, either joint or muscle, cause you to get discouraged and quit. I see it all the time with trial members who come in to our fitness studio- they do too much their first day, they try to stay up with the veterans and next thing you know, they are never seen from again. Remember working out is something you are going to be doing the rest of your life, take it slowly. Otherwise start>quit>start>quit>start>quit it is always going to suck for you because you are a beginner.

3- Make it a priority- What is the reason you are doing this? It better be for you and nobody else. Schedule it. It happens. It is going to happen. Regardless of what happens at work, home, school, etc… It is going to happen regardless of ___________. You must commit and then take action. Patience and persistence– that’s how you make this work.

ANd that’s how you make everything work. That’s how I made meditation, warrior yoga, box breathing, and all of my daily spiritual routines work. 

You can do it! You just need to make the commitment and go after it.

My mindtamer program can help guide you along the way, but you have got to want to stop failing at things and start succeeding.

What is your reason?

What is your purpose?

If you are not meditating now, this is something that we cover in great detail in Mindtamer. And it is something that I believe will change your life. I created a free weight loss meditation that you can download here. Take the journey to the new spiritual you.

Goal setting failure 101- Mindtamer

goal setting will create a successful life.

Set goals! Set Goals!

Want to change, you have to set some goals!

How many times have you heard it before?

In order to be successful you have to set goals up.

Well you know what—- it’s true!

But how many do this scenario:

Set up some goals get very excited about them, and the next day or next week, completely forget about them.

Geez, that was a waste of time.

And it was. That is GOAL SETTING FAILURE. 

You cannot just set it and forget it. You have to have a plan for reaching. Steps you will take to reach each goal. 1,2,3,4,5,6, etc…….. This way you can see yourself getting closer to your goal each and every day or week or month. That is motivating.

My experience is the latter….. People set them up and then forget about them.

I used to be one of those people. And things went good for a while, but eventually things came to a halt and then backslide a bit. Not what I wanted.

See, I wasn’t able to repeat the success I was having because I didn’t have a plan, I was just hoping things went right, and they did for a while, but this is the outcome you get when you don’t have a solid plan and solid goals to strive for.

Let’s go into weight loss, something I’m an expert in. I hear this all the time:

‘I want to lose weight!’

That’s great! How much weight, by when, where do you want to lose it, you just want to lose weight or body fat, how are you going to do it, how many workouts, how is your nutrition going to change, etc………

The majority of people who start trying to lose weight will either quit altogether in just a short time or lose weight and feel good about it and then hit a wall, a plateau, nothing they do will budge the scale, so then they quit. Most of them gain all the weight back and some even more then before. It’s yo-yo dieting in effect.

ethan hawke doesn't workout

You need a plan. And it starts with goals. And setting them up correctly from the start. And then you have to follow up and review them. So you know you are heading in the right direction.

From the very beginning of the Mindtamer program and every module thereafter I am constantly reminded members to set goals, follow up, take action, achieve goals. If they miss, reassess and then go after them again. Goals are a lifelong process and should never, ever be put on the back-burner.

We are goal striving machines. We were meant to have some purpose in our life to make our life exciting and worthwhile. Nothing to strive for leads to a life of the ordinary. I don’t want to be ordinary and I don’t want you to be ordinary.

Be extraordinary!

Be awesome!

Stop blaming others for your life

So you are trying to get ahead in life, but things keep coming up that keep pushing you back down. Car needs repaired. Drama in your romantic relationship. Drama with your parents or siblings. You didn’t get the promotion. Etc…….

Boo hoo you

everything is your fault- good or bad

Everything happens for a reason. And you, my friend, are the cause of it.

Everything in your life is because of something you did. Every moment you are alive you are creating your future with the millions of different moments that you have throughout your life.

So how you think and how you act determines your future.

mindtamer positive thoughts lifelong change jason yun

If your life has not been what you expected so far, I’ve got good news for you– You can change it for the better right now.

But it is going to take change. Because what you have done so far is not working. Don’t expect different things to come if you still do the same things over and over again. That’s how insanity is defined.

If you don’t like your job, and you come home every night from it complaining about it and telling everyone how bad it is and how you want to leave for something else…..yet you come home and watch 3 hours of television instead of looking for a new job— It’s your fault.

If you get a C on your test and wanted an A, obviously you only knew to the test to a C grade.

If you want to change your life, you must have 5 things:

1. Know what you want. Write it down, in as much detail as possible. See yourself where you want to be. Picture it in your mind, then write it out.

Do not put this off as quackery bullish*t! To change your life you must be ready and open to do things that you have not done. Only then will you be able to create your life and your circumstances.

2. Action. You must take action to get where you envision yourself. Do you have everything you need to get started towards your vision? No? Where do you get it? Do you need to go to a certain place for your vision to come true? Do you have the resources right now? If no, how do you get them. Right out 10 action steps. Once you complete the 10, write out 10 more.

You will hear me say ‘take action’ or ‘take massive action’ again and again and again and again and again and again…….It is that important. You will also hear every single person….EVERY SINGLE PERSON……. who has taken their life from non-success to SUCCESS, say the same thing. Stop talking and get Doing!

3. Discipline. You must have it in order to become your vision. Success is not given out everyday to the masses. Very few achieve it. What’s going to stop you from working on your action list versus going out with your friends for a few drinks, or plopping in front of the TV for a few hours— DISCIPLINE!

4. Patience. You must have it. Becoming the new you, or as we call it in Mindtamer, the Improvement Warrior, is going to take time. Learning anything new is hard. So you must be patient with yourself in order to succeed and fight through the early let-downs. And you must have patience in order to not let the let-downs become quitting.

5. Persistence. Persistance and patience can go hand-in-hand. When you get knocked down you got to get back up. You will get knocked down. I’ve been knocked down time and time again. But I keep getting up. It’s not how many times you get knocked down that matters, it’s if you get back up, and did you learn from it. If you didn’t learn from it, you’ll keep getting knocked down by the same things. Which is wasting your most precious commodity– TIME.

So there you have it.

Time is going to pass regardless. You can put blame on others, but it only hurts you in the NOW. And if you hold a grudge against others or things it also hurts you in the future. The way to become great is to be great in each and every moment. Blame yourself.

Blame yourself

Blame yourself for everything. Make a list. Go back in your life and make a list of everything that happened that you did not like. Find the reason it really didn’t work. Or better yet, ask yourself what could I have done differently to reverse the outcome?

Blame yourself and forgive others.

don't let yourself burden others with bad thoughts.

It’s all on me is one of the rules I set up for myself. The rule is:

Everything in my life is a result of my actions or thoughts from either the past, present or future. I am the only one responsible. I have finally come to grips of this in recent years. It has resulted in me knowing that there is no such thing as failure. Only stumbling along the way, once I stumble, I simply need to go back to the drawing board and figure out a new plan of attack, never move backwards and keep moving forward– THAT’S HOW WINNING IS DONE.

This simple, but extremely hard action, is critical to changing your life. It’s what we teach in our mindtamer program along with taking control of your body, nutrition, emotions, mindset, and awaken the spirit within.

Live for the moment. It’s all we have right now.

forgive and forget and forge your circumstances

The Challenge of Life- Are you up for it?!

Murphy’s Law:

Nothing is as easy as it looks,
Everything takes longer than you expect,
And if anything can go wrong, it will,
At the worst possible moment.

Life is a series of challenges. How you deal with these challenges will determine how great, or how not-so great your life is.

deal with challenges and become great

You are born into this world and everything is basically done for you. You mother and father take care of you, feed you, clean you, etc…….. They try and instill the best qualities and teach you everything that they know so you will grow up to be  a productive adult.

Unfortunetly, some things that we learn are not useful and are detrimental as adults. Some people blame their parents for not getting to where they want to get. Others blame teachers, others blame their environment, others blame money, others blame others, others blame tragic events that happened from their past.

You need to forget about the past. Especially the past that serves you only a huge plate of negativity. That is the past and it cannot be changed. The sooner you grasp this idea the sooner you can start living and enjoying life.

You must live in the present. Living and being in the present and making the best of it, is the only way you can make YOUR future the best possible it can be. It is also the only way you can truly be happy. Let the past be the past; plan for your future, but live in the NOW!

mindtamers can free there mind and life and be happy

And even when you do that, bad things will come up. These are tests. Tests of life. Everybody has Tests of Life. But how will you deal with these Tests of Life? If you give in and feel sorry for yourself and it knocks you off course, then the Tests of Life are going to create your circumstances. But if you rise up, step up, man up, woman up, cowboy up, cowgirl up….. whatever UP you want to call it– then you will be the creator of your circumstances and experiences.

All people experience different things differently. What makes one person happy might bore another person. What makes one person sad might make another person fearful.

I graduated high school with a 2.23 grade point average, and .6 in my final semester in my senior year. Do I let that affect me now? Does it mean I’m not a smart person? Maybe. Or does it mean that I just didn’t work hard? Maybe as well. Or does it mean that the stuff I was doing and learning in high school wasn’t very important to me? Another maybe– well definitely. Because now today, I’m helping to change lives. I’m a fitness business owner and devote much of my time to educating people about fitness and nutrition and mindset, and designing workouts that people can do.

What motivates me is helping people get better. Making their life better, and in return my life becomes better because of it. I work hard everyday to accomplish this mission. But things come up. Some things are bigger then others, some smaller. Either way, it doesn’t knock me off course, because I know where I am going. I have goals written out, and I review daily.

Without something to shoot for you are just wandering around aimlessly hoping everything goes right. This is how people have bad days, or bad weeks, or bad months, or bad years.

I don’t have any of that. I have bad moments. But everyday is awesome! Because moments don’t last very long. They are here and then they are gone. I’m on to the next moment. What do I have to do in the next moment to move my business forward…..my life forward?

What do you have to do to move your business or career forward? Your life forward?

There is no failure until you stop doing it. Everything and everybody is a beginner at something. Very rarely is anybody a phenom. It takes work. Hard work. Consistent work to become great.

This happens to a lot of trial members who come in for their trial with us in our fitness programs. They come in for their first workout, and it’s hard! Then they quit. Because it is easier to not work out and stay un-healthy then it is to start the process of getting healthy and working out. It’s easier to stay inside their comfort zone then change themselves, because that takes sacrifice. And sacrifice they are not willing to make at this moment. I hope, for their sake, they eventually find the way and do change. Because once you do get healthy and strong– everything in life gets better.

what will you gain from changing mind, body

I’ve stumbled along the way, as I’m sure you have as well. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before perfecting electricity. Michael Jordan was cut from his middle school basketball team. Henry Ford lost all his money 5 times before Ford Motor Company. Steve Jobs was fired from Apple. Abraham Lincoln was dropped from the rank of Captain to Private before becoming President. Elvis was fired as a performer for the Grand Ole Opry.

If you stumble or fall, get back up. Use each stumble or fall as a learning point. Get better, get stronger from it. People often quit when they are on the brink of success, it’s just around the corner.

Everything great requires sacrifice. You can be average at anything. Average is the majority of the world. I choose to be in the minority. I choose greatness!

find your passion for life and change it with mindtamer

Stop running your mouth and DO IT!

There are two kinds of people in this world.

Doers and talkers.

Which one are you?

It’s ok if you are talker now. You can become a doer.

I used to be a talker.

Jason Yun used to be all talk, now he is all action improvement warrior
But I found something I was extremely passionate about and I become a big time doer.

But you got to find something that you are passionate about. Something that moves you to move away from your comfort zone. Something that gets you emotional charged!!!! And gets you moving. If you just sit on your emotions and nothing ever happens, that extra baggage is going to weigh you down and you will never get moving and get your life to where you want to get.

It doesn’t matter what it is- teaching, cleaning, wood working, inventing, designing websites, writing songs, non-profit work, coaching people, knitting, etc…….
Some people never find their passion. And that’s really a shame. We only have a limited time at life.

go after your passion and you will love life and be happy
I’ll tell you something– it takes work to find something you truly love.
In my opinion, lazy people are just people who are bored or sick. And they just need to find something that excites them.
Some people go their whole lives being ‘lazy’. Talking about what might be. What should of been? What should of happened? What might of happened if they did this or that?
But we only have one life, and time passes so quickly. Every single person was created with infinite power inside of them. We have to tap that power inside of us to become a doer.

A doer. An ACTION TAKER.

So if you are ‘lazy’ right now, and come up with excuse after excuse of why your life is not where you want it to be- challenge yourself!

I challenge you! I Challenge You To Change!

Time is going to pass anyway, why not live it being productive.

Goal striving.

Happy!

Procrastination is the killer of life!

get up and take action stop talking

If you don’t know where to start Mindtamer program can help you on your way. We introduce you to two of the most important things you can do throughout your life in the first module: Breathing correctly and Goal Setting.

Not just writing goals down and forgetting about them. But making you a goal striving, accomplishing machine. Those two things will improve your life dramatically. It certainly has me.

Mindtamer is basically the cliff notes of how I took my life to severe depression, anxiety, and thoughts of suicide to where I am today– becoming the improvement warrior. I’m happy, strong, and loving life. But I used to be just a talker. Talking about what I was going to do. Dreaming about all the money I would be making, the cars I would be driving, etc.. etc… It takes work……hard work to get things you desire in your life.

Anybody can change. Everyday gives you an oppuruntiy to make a change and make that day the best day possible. I have no more bad days. I only have bad moments. And they are rare and few. I know you can live the life you want, you just got to find your passion and take action.

excuses and action don't mix. become a mindtamer
