What The Hell Is This Blog Good For?

I think my blog has run ashore…

I’ve spend a lot of time blogging about:

  • Motivation
  • Personal growth
  • Self-improvement
  • Running
  • Healthy Eating
  • Wellness

I’ve done a mighty fine job of telling YOU what to DO.

I’ve invested a lot of time in telling YOU how to change, telling YOU how to be a better person, telling YOU how to lose weight,  and telling YOU how to get into shape.

See the trend?

I did too.

It prompted me to ask the question,

What the hell is this blog about anyway?!

That question came with this answer…

I’d say it’s about damn time I just started posting about my experiences, letting YOU see ME for who I am and be transparent.

More importantly I want YOU to see who I really am and how I am designing my own world.

I have lofty ambitions to be:

  • A perfect husband
  • A better dad
  • A stellar service manager
  • A heart-led philanthropist
  • An avid (and consistent) runner
  • A writer
  • A world renowned blogger
  • A no-bullshit, everyday guy who became President Of The United States
  • Twenty pounds lighter.

Not necessarily in that order.

In order to do these things, I have to overcome some hurdles.

What I’m more interested in is the journey we are all on to overcome life.

There is more to come in the next couple of weeks, including some contributors.

But for now, just know this…

Simplicity is the new look of the blog, reality is the new view of the blog and the input from you will become the most important part of the content…

See you in the next post.

    I thought my goals were high. Youve inspired me to set mine higher.
