L.O.V.E. = Spirituality

There are basically two significant driving forces on the planet: Love and Fear. When in the vibration of love, people can serve greater, be at peace with the world, and enjoy their lives. When in fear, people often swim in a constant state of anxiety; are busy yet, very unproductive; and can never seem find peace and enjoyment. Each day, we have to choose what we want to align with- Love or Fear!

Since LOVE is so important to vibrant health and a good life, I have created the ‘L.O.V.E.’ formula to help you choose LOVE each day along the way!

L- Live fully and consciously each day!

O- Own your choices and be accountable!

V- Vow to take good care of yourself!

E- Evolve and keep growing!

Following this simple formula will not only help you achieve a greater things, it will help others do the same. Make the shift; others will eventually follow. So, rise above and spread the L.O.V.E.!

Fitness Does NOT = Health!

A common misconception is that: Fitness = Health.  This is simply not true! People can be fit, but still not be healthy. There are tons of good examples of this, not only in sports (as high as the professional levels), but also pasted all over social media. People equate a fit looking body with total health. It’s NOT! However, being fit is a component of good health. So the equation should read:  Fitness = A Component of Good Overall Health!


I have rehabilitated plenty of “fit people” in my career. Guess what we didn’t focus on too much? Their fitness! Why? They were already fit! However, they were not healthy. So, their rehab programs became lifestyle rehab programs. I had to get them to see that their good level of fitness could not ‘make up’ for what was lacking in the rest of their health regimen (and for some, they didn’t really even have a health regimen, just a fitness regimen).

That being said, I have also had to get some so-called ‘healthy people’ on better fitness regimens. Why? They didn’t have one! They thought the rest of their healthy lifestyle would make up for it. Nope! It doesn’t work this way either! 

I invite you to take a look at your own personal fitness regimen. Do you have one? If not, why not? How about your own overall health regimen? Do you pay attention to the rest of the health equation, or do you tend to use fitness as your ‘Holy Grail’?  The good news is that if you are not happy with your answers, you can always consciously choose to change your actions and behaviors to bring about a healthier you!  

A Simple 3-Step Approach To A Better Life!

Step 1- Learn from the past! Yes, it's important to learn from our past, but not live in the past! Good or bad, things happen. That's life! If it's bad things, move on! It's over! We can't change it, so we need to let go and keep going. If it's good, we still need to do the same thing! Either way, it's important to take time to reflect and process the lessons and experiences we have, but then... move on!   

Step 2- Live in the presentThis is where most of the 'magic' in life happens-- in the now! However, the art of 'self-awareness' appears to be dying. Many people are often so engulfed with their technological devices, or they are multitasking their days away to the point that, they can't truly be present and live in the NOW! Consequently, many people miss out on life's magic moments! Being "present" is the "gift" --not only the gift you receive, but the one you will give to others as well!  

Step 3- Look forward to the futureYou can approach life in one of two ways: either with fear and anxiety (which is draining); or with eager and anticipation (which is fulfilling)! The second approach is the one recommended. Life is much more meaningful when we have something to "look forward to", especially when this something is something fun and engaging!

The takeaway message: Life is what we make it!

Life doesn't happen to us; we create it with Steps 1-3 above!

Keep rising higher!
