Diving In: Making Change

Every single day I interface with people online and in person about wellness. So many are one toe dipped into the water. Feeling sssllllooowwwwlllyyyy whether the temperature is just right for them to dive in and take a swim (to see if they will drown or float). Please. Do not be a spectator to hard work. You must risk not knowing and become vulnerable to the conditions (just jump in).

Recognize the truth. And THE TRUTH IS 9 of 10 people whom I come across (including; trainers, doctors, athletes, etc.) simply HAVE NO CLUE. The worst part is, once their ignorance’s are revealed they retreat, deciding the water is just to cold for them (bur, ice-cubes down the back of your shirt). Man o man. what new/old fallacies I will find tomorrow.

What is it about people who Try to Commit – Try to Decide – Try to Believe that a change is near/possible. Instead of sharply acting on change (diving in).

Here is a simple correlation. Remember the last time you accidentally touched something to hot (got burned) What was the reaction? You jumped back fast (reacted), decided to move away from the heat. Why? Because you knew, not believed that if you got away from the heat everything would be alright. HELLO equally are simple/certain applications for health and wellness. Certainly you need to have a blue print to avoid hazards. One customized for you and your desires/vision (so you will be happy|healthy|strong).

If you want to believe in yourself you need a taste of success.

It is always nice to share your successes with a friend(s). It is equally necessary finding success with the guidance of a teacher. This way you know, absolutely you are working on the best possible goals for your long term success/practice. Motivation lives in belief of yourself and hopefulness for determined taregts. The problem is if you have no clue where to start how can you believe in yourself and potential abilities.


In the beginning people are just plain scared. Scared they might find out they are not as strong; mentally, physically and spiritually as they hoped (so you avoided the truth). The truth is there is a right way (for you), and sometimes you need a slap on the wrist to keep you going straight. Naturally this will elicit a fear response. Well…”man up”. Fear is fine as long as you are willing to be courageous. and Courage is confronting this fear, then head-butting it into the ground. If you make the right decision, you will not second guess it. You may actually be better for it in the end?
