Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men
who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given
than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact.
It’s an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration.
It’s a dare.
Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing.

DARE TO BE DIFFERENT !
DARE TO BECOME THE PERSON YOU TRULY ARE

While most are dreaming of success,
winners wake-up and work hard to achieve it.

“Victory isn’t defined by wins or losses.
It is defined by effort.
If you can truthfully say,
‘I did the best I could, I gave everything I had,’
then you’re a winner.”

“One bout doesn’t make a champion.
One win or one loss isn’t reflective of an entire career…
Champions aren’t made or lost with one battle.”

“Never underestimate the heart of a champion.”

Failure is the path of least persistence.

Victory belongs to the most persevering.

“I feel that the most important step in any major accomplishment is
setting a specific goal.
This enables you to keep your mind focused on your goal
and off the many obstacles that will arise
when you’re striving to do your best.”

“To accomplish great things,
we must not only act,
but also dream,
not only plan, but also believe.”

Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success.
When you do a thing, do it with all your might.
Put your whole soul into it.
Stamp it with your own personality.
Be active, be energetic and faithful,
and you will accomplish your object.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”

Focus on results

Progress comes when you focus on results.
Progress happens when you visualize the results you desire,
when you expect those results, and then work to make them happen.
Focus on results,
and you can figure out how to bring them about.
Focus on results,
and you have a way to know, in each and every step,
whether or not you’re making progress.
Good intentions are nice,
and sophisticated methods are impressive.
What really count, though, are the end results.
Any effort you undertake will use your precious time and resources.
Make sure you get the most value in return by staying focused on the results.
Don’t allow yourself to remain stuck in mediocrity.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking you’re doing great when you’re really doing not much at all.
Clearly and specifically define the results you seek,
measure your progress,
and weigh each action, each effort, accordingly.
Focus on results
and you’ll get the very best ones.

We are shaped by our thoughts;
we become what we think.

“You are only as lazy or lacking in willpower
as you think you are.”

In motion

When you’re on a roll, keep going.
When you’re in a slump, get going.
Get in motion and stay in motion.
The possibilities are far more powerful and more numerous when you’re taking action.
If you’re just sitting around doing nothing,
you won’t be too thrilled with whatever happens to come your way,
if anything.
When you get up and get moving,
you can go any place
and experience anything you choose.
Being patient is admirable but being lazy is not.
Be eager and persistent about taking action,
while being patient about letting the results come.
The way to have it done is to get up and get it done.
The way to live the life of your dreams is to bring it about with focused action.
Get the power of momentum on your side and keep it there.
Get in motion, stay in motion,
and live life on your own very best terms.

“There is no comparison between
that which is lost by not succeeding
and that lost by not trying.”
“Perseverance is failing 19 times
and succeeding the 20th.”
============================================

so i’m always asked how my tilapia is made
and whatz crazy is i eat it 6 x’s a day right now
and i’m a person who’s always hated fish
but Brandon makes it in a way that i love it more than chicken
here’s the recipe

TILAPIA made by: Brandon Best
I pour on freshly squeezed lemon juice,
sprinkle pepper on it,
and put the fillets in a pan on medium high heat.
Let it sit long enough so that the pan side browns/blackens
(depending on how done you like it).
The indicator I use is that when you see the edges start to curl up slightly, it is ready to flip.
You should be able to get a clean flip without it falling apart.
Once you flip them,
the excess lemon juice and pepper mixture that was initially poured on it,
pour that onto them.
This side will not take as long as the other side.
And when you remove,
pour more of the fresh squeezed juice on it,
and let it sit for two to three minutes.

=========================================
NOTE: we prefer the Tilapia from Sav-on Foods or PriceSmart
it’s thinner but seems to taste better and less fishy

Note 2: it MUST HAVE THE REAL LEMON
once he ran out and it just wasn’t the same
just sayin
but then again remember i don’t like fish

Boomer is her dog….

Lessons from Boomer
I’ve made a few observations of my dog and I think we can learn a thing or two from Boomer.
These are dedicated to those who have started or are going to start their contest prep for November
and to those who continue to prep for Nationals.

1. Boomer eats the exact same kibble every single day and he’s still so excited every time we pour food into his bowl.
Remember this as your menu shrinks. At least there’s more than one item on it.

2. No matter what time of the day it is, Boomer is always excited to go get his exercise.
It could be his second or third time out that day, and he’ll still wag his tail with the same enthusiasm.
If you feel like complaining about your second or third session of cardio for the day, embrace it instead.

3. Never skip out on a good stretch. Downward dog, anyone?

4. Drink plenty of water. If you start to dream of soda, milk, juice, wine, or anything of the sort,
remember that Boomer’s only beverage is water and HE LOVES IT! He doesn’t even need coffee to get him going for the day.

5. Get plenty of rest. If everyone’s out for the day, sneak in a nap on the couch.
You should probably sleep on your bed, but who will know?

6. Obey your master. Do what you’re told. Obey long enough and you might get a treat.
Remember, no sneaking treats when no one’s looking.

7. Bad things could happen if Boomer were to get into chocolate. You should stay away from it too.

Get excited and have fun! Wake up each morning eager for the day to begin. You know Boomer will be.
Give it 100% because it’s a dog-eat-dog world out there. If you don’t, someone beside you on stage did.
