    Victory over ADHD with a Focused Mind in Burlingame

    Largest crowd this year packs Burlingame Public Library for a session on Focus by Sarah Cheyette and Peter Johnson authors of ADHD & The Focused Mind. "This is the largest turn out for a book talk that we have had this entire year, there is definitely a desire and a need that is being filled" said Cynthia Rider, adult services librarian at Burlingame Public library. Focused and winning with ADHD can be done without medication. The strategies used by Elite athletes can be applied to developing skills that create advantages for someone with ADHD. A crowd ranging from parents of children with ADHD to working professionals and other high level athletes filled the LANE room to hear how ....

  • The Godfather of Fitness in San Bruno

    The Godfather of Fitness in San Bruno

    When it comes to solutions to your motivation and fitness challenges, Billy Blanks is the MAN! When Billy talks....people listen. In San Bruno this past weekend, here's a clip of Billy talking about exercise and the strength you can gain. Being mindful allows your mind body and spirit to stay fresh and connected. This connection means progress will come. Instead of using a workout to only change how you feel, or using the workout to "get rid of" things. You can use your TaeBo kickboxing to become mentally and spiritually stronger inside your body. Why not? If you've go the will, TaeBo is the way. Continue to have a Powerfilled day!!! Your friendly neighborhood Black Belt ....

  • Billy Blanks Event in San Bruno THIS Weekend Tae Bo fitness

    Billy Blanks Event in San Bruno THIS Weekend Tae Bo fitness

    22 years ago I walked into my first LIVE TaeBo class! This was BEFORE the infomercials. Seeing celebrities like Wayne Gretsky, Gabrielle Reese, Shaquille O'neal, and Paula Abdul added to the magic. After the videos (yup...I said videos, like VHS TAPES!!!) hit, classes allover started popping up. Infomercials or not, celebrity or not, one thing has remained constant, the man and the training. I like to call Billy Blanks the Godfather of all cardio martial arts, but he's more than that. HE's the OG of Fitness!!!..Training with this ICON for more than two decades has given me continual learning and lessons. They say if you want to know someone watch what they say, but if you REALLY want to ....

  • The Gift you Are

    The Gift you Are

    In the midst of struggles and hard times it can be really tough to realize what a gift you are. You're NOT ONLY a gift, but you've GOT gifts. They're inside you. The gifts are what YOU have received that no one else can see until the dark times, no one can feel until the difficult times too. Your ability to rise up isn't fully appreciated until others need a hand up them self. When you wrap a gift, it becomes a present. Your gifts are often wrapped in challenge or unbelief, but this is when you gifts are received as a present you were created to be. If you think you're surrounded by darkness and difficulty, your gifts are about to be unwrapped. Building GRIT is a key skill in succeeding ....

  • The Hand sows + The Mind knows = The Seed that grows

    The Hand sows + The Mind knows = The Seed that grows

    Knowledge is POTENTIAL power.....Knowledge is transformed into power when action is put behind it. The plan gets its power to affect change with actions guiding it not just he mind deciding it. The perfect plan next week isn't better than an average plan acted on today. Like driving a car on the Freeway, we can use this metaphor to compare our own success path. The freeway doesn't involve holding the wheel in the perfect exact position, instead it's about making little adjustments while following a direction towards your destination. Micro-tuning your way to your success has SO much application in it. Failure isn't final and losing isn't lasting. Your ability to stay on course when it ....

  • The "I DIDN'T reach my goal" line is LONGER than the "I REACHED my goal" line. Which one do you want to be in?

    Motivation gets you started, but discipline KEEPS YOU GOING….… I KNEW there’s something different about you! This is due to the fact that it’s a certain type of pro-active person that reads these. Here’s one thing you know we can count on: motivation shows up but...OFTEN it goes away just as fast. Sadly, following the path of motivation in order to make progress has you feeling like you're riding a rollercoaster between extremes. You get closer and closer and then WHAMMO, low energy enthusiasm, or loss of drive..... If you’re nodding while reading this saying, "yep, that's me." If this DOES describe you, welcome to the club! I'm the same ....

  • How you love life, is how it will love you back

    How you love life, is how it will love you back

    I take what can be thought of as a backwards approach to training. For some that don’t understand, I’ll explain. I believe the world is full of places that offer classes and training focused on the idea that, “when you look better you will feel better, OR when you look better you will have more self-confidence.” Our world is full of images of what we should look like and that if only we could look like someone else then all our problems would be solved and we’d be happy. The dojo approach is all about your inside changing your outside. Self-confidence doesn’t come from what you see it comes from how you feel. Confidence, strength, and power first happen ....

  • Be A Complainer?

    Complaining…….. There's room for legitimate complaining, but if you let this deadly disease of attitude - complaining – loose, it will conquer you. Complaining can take over your life, destroy you and leave you without anything. Nobody wants to take along a complainer. Nobody wants to promote a complainer. Nobody wants to live with one. Nobody wants to be a partner of one. Nobody wants to have one around. Complaining leaves you out of more opportunities than you can possibly imagine if you let it take over and grab you by the throat. If you don't think complaining is bad ask the children of Israel of Old Testament fame. Now let me say something right here, they are ....

  • The Stone Cutter

    One evening Grandpa was visiting for conversation over dinner. During dinner the Grandson was complaining how hard his coach was making him work up and down the basketball court. “Grandpa, I’m the slowest one, and the coach always makes me run extra after practice. EVERYONE is watching me, and the pressure is MORE than I can handle.” With a knowing but sympathetic smile, the Grandfather said, “pressure is good. Let me tell you a story about pressure and results” “If you don't know about stone cutters, they work like this.......They are given a big heavy sledgehammer with which they pound gigantic pieces of boulders and rocks. ....

  • Antidote to what ails you

    Antidote to what ails you

    Start of with what you CAN control, and that's your internal world. Your thoughts reactions patterns and habits. Develop a daily habit of being thankful can be challenging. When hard times come, you'll need the emotional intelligence to know hard times have come to pass, not to stay. But what if I don't feel grateful?
    Hey, when you don't FEEL grateful is exactly the time you don't want to be overdrawn on your Gratitude account. You're not going to have an easy time feeling grateful when you ask lousy questions like the one above. Direct what you want with questions. How about these for refocusing yourself and the greater things you have to be thankful for. What is one of your favorite ....
