Stop Making EXCUSES in 2012 and Get RESULTS!

Excuses or Results? Choose one….but first watch this video below…

Either you get results or you give excuses. You can’t have great results in your life when you are always giving excuses. Results in your life are a direct gauge of how much excuses you are giving in your life. The less excuses you give, the more positive results you will have in life.

I came across this article early this morning and I wanted to share it with everyone in order to make 2012 your best year ever!  As I started off my day heading off to the gym like I normally do, I thought, ” OH NOOOO” it’s new years, which usually means that the gym is going to be bombarded with people and their resolutions to lose weight! I’ve been constantly talking about losing weight on and off but in 2011 I made a decision to just stop making excuses and get off my fat ass and work out, watch what I eat and just do it.  Now the other thing that I realized is that it took me 34 years to get the weight that I was so why would I think that somehow that weight was going to magically melt off in a couple of weeks, or 2, 3 months or without drinking beer for a month.  I had to be realistic and know that I had been mistreating my body for the past several years so I couldn’t be serious in thinking that I was just going to shed off a hundred pounds in the couple of times I hit the gym. LMAO!!!

Well I stepped into the gym and to my surprise it was nearly empty…there were perhaps about 20 people in there where typically it’s a bit more packed, now I know what you’re thinking well you probably went when everyone is at work, but NO I actually got up earlier than usual and went in to work out with the 7am people. So as I was working out I was thinking, I am sure some people made excuses to not wake up that extra hour in the morning or wait till they got out of their 8 hours at the job and then go work out! Or just some other excuse that’s going to get us in the same rut that we’re trying to get out of! Trust me if there’s excuses out there I’ve come up with them, whether it was to not workout or not eat healthy or maybe even other excuses in other areas of life. But I made a decision to stop making excuses and go out and get results.  Results in losing weight, results in my relationship, results in being happy and living life without excuses.

Here’s some changes that I made in order to successfully go down a pant size and lose about 25lbs over the past 3 months.

  1. Added 1 protein shake a day – now I didn’t neccesarily eliminate a meal, I just knew to add more protein to my diet. How did I know that?
  2. I joined Livestrong.com and got a free account and documented what I was eating everyday and saw how much carbs vs. protein my daily diet had.
  3. Worked out early in the morning within 20 min. of waking up and did 30 min. of cardio and 30 min. of basic weight training
  4. Added a tablespoon of Spirulina to my diet.  I didn’t know what spirulina was before my brother told me about it being the highest and one of the bests forms of protein for your body.  Also helps with lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. More info on Spirulina
  5. Watched what I ate!  Because of logging all my food intake on Livestrong.com I was able to see what I didn’t need to eat and what I could eat more of! No Diets, No getting rid of anything! I still enjoy pizza, beer, buffalo wings, tons of stuff but I also have PORTION CONTROL!

Now these are just a couple of things and I am no guru, I am no specialist, I just letting you know what I did and that’s it!

Here’s a New Year‘s message that we filmed over the holidays, I’ll just share it with everyone and wish everyone a great New 2012, may it bring lots of results that will put a smile across your face over and over again and allow you to experience 2012 without excuses.

“What’s Funny About This?”

Well just got back to Dallas from a 12 day trip out to California and it was awesome.  Although I wish the weather would’ve been a bit better, I guess I shouldn’t be complaining giving the fact that there’s been several thunderstorms and bad weather here in Texas.

While out in California I attended one of the most incredible events I’ve been introduced to by my friends Matt Morris and Marc Accetta.  SANG is a notable event held yearly and organized by Larry Benet.  SANG which stands for Speakers, Authors & Networkers Group.  There have been so many amazing people who I’ve met through this event such as Tony Hseih from Zappos.com, Jeff Hayznett, Jack Canfield, Bryan Tracy, Mari Smith, Robin Sharma and so on…this year I was able to meet and hear from Sean Stephenson.  Now Sean is someone who not many people know…but they should!

Expected to die at birth, Sean Stephenson has faced many reasons to give up and countless opportunities to embrace pity.  He suffered more than 200 bone fractures by the age of 18, reached a height of only 3 ft., and is permanently confined to a wheelchair.  However he’s allowed his set backs to inspire millions around the world including Tony Robbins & Bill Clinton.  During his speech Sean said whenever we’re having a bad day or dealing with a tough situation, we should ask ourselves, “What’s Funny About This?”  So being that I’ve worked around Marc for close to 10 years now, I know plenty of positive mental exercises and how to think positively.  However sometimes I need new inspiration and I think Sean’s message hit the spot for what I was about to experience.

 

The SANG event had ended and I needed to go get my truck to pick up some equipment that was being used during the event.  Upon walking to where I had parked my truck 5 days prior and trust me I had been checking on it each evening to make sure there were not tickets and not towed.  And everything had been OK, until that day! I get to my truck and there’s a small car parked in its place that said…Parking Permit for The Hangover 2 Movie Premiere!  Yes! That is correct The Hangover 2 Movie Premiere crew had gotten my truck towed.  Now I am calling the numbers on the signs and no answer, just messages from the Mayor welcoming me to the city!  After 15 minutes of this, I become frustrated find a parking attendant and he says oh yeah…I saw them towing it around 3pm this afternoon.  You can go down Hollywood Pkwy about 6 blocks and your vehicle is there! That’s where they tow all the vehicles down here.  Now I know what you’re thinking Monico, why did you park in a Tow Away Zone…well I didn’t that’s just the spot that the hotel security & staff said I would be safe to park.  OK…so now I am walking about 6 blocks in Hollywood, while still on the phone and the Mayor welcoming me to Hollywood, by this time I am very irritated.  I finally find the place which was 10 blocks away not 6! I go up to the window and the man looks at me and says, “Oh yes we brought in your car about 4 hours ago…what do you want to do?”  What do I want to do, I want my truck back! So $380 later, he gives me my paperwork and says to wait by the gate to get my truck.  As I am waiting another guy comes and says come with me and takes me to a parking lot about 7 blocks away and as the gate opens there is my truck in the middle of all these other cars.  I feel a sense of relief as I get into my truck and start it and click…click…click! Yep my battery is dead! Here we go….the guy comes back and says do you need a jump!  I am saying to myself A JUMP! Really you’re asking me if I need a Jump! I answer calmly and politely yes…so he gives me a jump! I let my truck run for about 10 minutes.  As I leave the gated pound, I turn right, he turns left and leaves in a hurry and yep you guessed it…my truck dies AGAIN!

I am definitely not in my happy zone..in fact I even yelled out a couple of choice words!  At this point my emergency lights barely were blinking so I know it’s definitely a dead battery.  I remember passing an Auto Zone on the way walking to the towing place, however it’s now 8:58pm and as many of you know most car part places close at 9pm.  So I now call my girlfriend, Melinda which is supposed to be having a girls night out with her friend from high school.  So now they come over from being out on Rodeo Dr. & site seeing!  I know I am a bad boyfriend for pulling them away from Rodeo Dr.   While waiting for them to come I had also called my friend Mike Putman, which was able to get the Hollywood Parking Police to allow me to leave my truck there overnight and I could get a new battery in the morning.  So they finally arrive and the lady says oh wow…you’re parked in LA county…we only have permission over Hollywood! So I am asking well where is Hollywood?  She looks at me with a straight face and says oh it’s right over there across the street.  She was pointing literally at the other end of the street, not down the road, down the block or anything but literally about 15 steps away.  LOL…I kinda laugh out loud and say ok can you give me a jump so that I can at least turn my truck long enough to turn it around.  She says well it’s a Hybrid car so they don’t have batteries….WOW REALLY…LOL.  Man oh Man I am getting taught a major lesson by the Hangover Crew about parking in their spots! LOL.

Finally Melinda gets to where I am at, I ask if it’s possible for them to go to a Wal-Mart and get me a battery!  I thought to myself I am asking her to leave Rodeo Dr. and go to Wal-Mart…LOL!  So her friend so politely looks for one and finds one about 30 minutes away but they close at midnight…it is now 11:20pm, so it’s a race against time.  They leave and I stay with my truck because aside from it not having any hazard lights, when the parking lady was there, she indicates to me that I am again parked in a Tow Away Zone…LOL! Shortly after midnight I get a text from Melinda saying…Got it, on our way back! I am finally thinking…God Thank YOU!  As soon as I say that, the thought comes to my mind about the security brace on the battery and if I have the tools to take it off! Yep you guessed it…I didn’t! I now have about 30 minutes to figure out a way to take off the battery bracket which holds the battery securely so that it doesn’t move around while driving! I am going through my entire truck looking for something…I find a crow bar and a rusty set of pliers! That’s what I am working with!  As soon as I look at the pliers, open the hood and shine the flashlight on the bolt.  The thought comes through my mind..“What’s Funny About This!”, so after that all the frustration and oh why me attitude and victim mentality just melted and went out the door!

Well needless to say I finally get the bolt off after about 40 minutes, get the new battery in there, truck starts immediately! As I was driving to the hotel to pick up my equipment, I thought man it’s about 1am, I sure could use a drink but everything’s closed.  Oh well, as I get up to my room what do I see on the desk a bottle of Absolut…Melinda said they had bought it thinking that we could all use a drink once I got everything resolved…right there I fell in love with her all over again!  How awesome & thoughtful is she that after ruining her girls night out night, she was still thinking about me and that I needed to wind down.

Had some drinks with my sweetie, her friend, relaxed and reflected on how lucky I am that mentally I am strong enough to not freak out when life throws you a couple of curve balls.  No matter how bad things may seem or how screwed up things might be going, you should take a step back and ask yourself…”What’s Funny About This?”  This is just something that I learned from Sean Stephenson during that week at SANG, however I have strong faith in God and know that God has a plan for everything!  So I never question, never complain, although sometimes I definitely feel like complaining and just being pissed off, I know that everything happens for a reason!

Enjoy the video of Sean’s Speech at SANG V…This is the same speech I watched….LIVE!

Travel Tips: How to mind your manners abroad!

While we are sitting here at the British Airways Executive Lounge awaiting our flight to South Africa we came across some kinda interesting and a bit funny information, well not we but Marc Accetta my friend/mentor for over 10 years was reading it and telling me about it and I found it online and figured I would share this article for everyone to just have a bit more info when traveling around the world…Enjoy and please let me know of other gestures that might help others stay out of trouble!!!

Frequent business traveller Scott McKain learned a valuable lesson many years ago about etiquette abroad.

On a trade mission in Brazil in 1974, McKain’s mouth was full at a welcome dinner when a local mayor asked whether he was enjoying his first Brazilian meal. McKain made an OK gesture with his thumb and index finger—a gesture akin to extending a middle finger here.

“The mayor literally dropped his jaw and his fork,” recalls McKain, an author and professional speaker in Fishers, Ind. “Fortunately, my age and inexperience allowed the more seasoned members of our delegation to prevent any lasting damage from my mistake—and we all ended up in laughter minutes later. But it taught me a lesson I have never forgotten.”

Since that first trip abroad at age 18, McKain says, he studies the customs and etiquette of each country before arriving.

Many travellers like McKain have made a faux pas in another country. Such a blunder can be embarrassing and insulting—and even damage a business relationship.

“A potential mistake in business ultimately has higher stakes, and perhaps more sensitivity, than a traveller who flubbed an interaction one-on-one with a café worker or laundromat attendant,” says Robert Reid, U.S. travel editor for Lonely Planet.

At USA Today’s request, Lonely Planet put together a list of etiquette tips in the following situations for North Americans heading abroad:

• In France, never discuss money over dinner, and splitting the bill “is considered the height of unsophistication.”

• In Mexico, whenever you catch the eye of someone who’s eating—even a stranger—it’s good manners to say, “Provecho,” which means enjoy.

• In Sweden, it’s considered vulgar to clink glasses unless you say, “Skals,” which means cheers.

• At a pub in Australia, it’s customary to buy a round of drinks for everyone in your group.

• In Russia, a 10 per cent tip is customary at a restaurant. Prices in stores are usually firm, but it’s OK to make a bid somewhat lower than a merchant’s price at markets and souvenir stalls.

• In Greece, don’t wave to anyone with an open palm. And don’t show your palm, though you might think to do so when gesturing for someone to wait or hold on, or showing the number five. “It is essentially the way one flips someone the bird in Greece. But, more than that, it states, ‘I reject you,’ ” Lonely Planet says.

• In Asia, it’s bad etiquette to point at objects or people with your feet, and don’t prop your feet on chairs or tables while sitting. Never touch any part of someone’s body with your foot, “which is considered the lowest part of the body,” the guidebook publisher says. “If you accidentally do this, apologize by touching your hand to the person’s arm and then touching your own head.”

• Travellers to Thailand shouldn’t be alarmed if locals pick their noses while talking to you. “It’s considered a natural act of good hygiene,” Lonely Planet says.

• In the Caribbean, address people with titles such as “mister” or “professor” until a first name is explicitly offered, Lonely Planet says.

Inexperienced North American business travellers “commit etiquette blunders more than 70 per cent of the time when doing business abroad,” says Ann Marie Sabath, author of “Business Etiquette: 101 Ways to Conduct Business with Charm & Savvy.”

Common oversights include not bringing a gift made in your home country for a first meeting with a client, not saying good morning, good afternoon or good evening and not expressing interest in a country’s history and culture, Sabath says. Other faux pas are taking a foreign client to lunch and talking about business, and assuming that a handshake rather than a kiss or bow is an appropriate introduction, she says.

McKain, who insulted the Brazilian mayor on his first trip abroad, says he always learns how to say “thank you” in the language of the country he plans to visit and always apologizes about his lack of fluency.

“It is remarkable how wonderful people can be when you have a humble and sincere desire to learn more about their culture and are not reticent about doing things their way,” says the author and speaker.

Any stupid person can die, Dying’s easy. Living’s a pain in the butt!

That title was a taken straight out of an interview that Jack LaLanne did with Esquire magazine in 2004.  I was reading up on Jack Lalanne after Marc Accetta had indicated to me that he wanted to do one of the Power of One Shows on Jack LaLanne.  I was thinking the old guy in the jump suite that sells Juicers. LOL! But after doing some research he was much more than just an old guy in a jump suite.  He was pretty much one the man in charge for starting the entire nutrition and fitness empire we see today that is full of Gold’s Gyms, 24 Hour Fitness, LifeTime Fitness clubs, as well as GNC‘s, Nutrition stores, nutrition bars, shakes, supplements,etc..

Jack LaLanne: What I’ve Learned

The late, great guru on living, dying, and getting busy trying real hard

By Cal Fussman

Originally published in the August 2004 issue

I’m going to be ninety in September. Everybody else can have a piece of the birthday cake, but not me. I have rules, and I follow ’em. No cake, no pie, no candy, no ice cream! Haven’t had any in seventy-five years. It makes me feel great not eating birthday cake. That’s the gift I give myself.

Forget about what you used to do. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for.

Don’t ask me about politics. I don’t like to get into Barbra Streisand-ism. Let’s stick to what’s important.

When I was younger, I drank a quart of blood a day for about six weeks. I’d get it at the slaughterhouse. I’d heard about those Masais, you know, those seven-foot African guys; they’d drink cattle blood for strength. Then one day a little clot got stuck in my throat and that was it for me.

As long as the emphasis is on winning, you’re gonna have steroids.

If man makes it, don’t eat it.

Of course I have fears. But what good is thinking or talking about them? Billy Graham is about the hereafter. I’m for the here and now.

You’ve got to satisfy you. If you can’t satisfy you, you’re a failure.

I work out for two hours every morning, seven days a week — even when I’m traveling. I hate it. But I love the result! That’s the key, baby!

The only way you can hurt your body is if you don’t use it.

Look, are you a suckling calf? Name one creature on earth that uses milk after it’s weaned. Man’s the only one. And man’s the only one who lives out only half his life span. A cow has four stomachs. You don’t. You can’t handle whole milk.

I’d like to talk to Jesus about those twelve disciples. They were a great public-relations team.

If you want to change somebody, don’t preach to him. Set an example and shut up.

Scales lie! You lose thirty pounds of muscle and you gain thirty pounds of fat and you weigh the same, right? Take that tape measure out. That won’t lie. Your waistline is your lifeline. It should be the same as it was when you were a young person.

If you lose a couple of inches off your stomach, your business down there will look an inch longer.

Sex is giving, giving, giving. The more energy you have, the more you’re going to please.

Now, I’m not as sexually active as I was when I was younger. But look at my wife — she’s still smiling!

The guy who’s most impressed me is Paul C. Bragg. He completely saved my life. When I was a kid, I was addicted to sugar. I was a skinny kid with pimples and boils. Used to eat ice cream by the quart. I had blinding headaches. I tried to commit suicide. And then one day, my life changed. Bragg was a nutritionist. My mother and I were a little late getting to his lecture. The place was packed, and so we started to leave. But Bragg said, “We don’t turn anybody away here. Ushers, bring two seats. Put those two up on the stage.” It was the most humiliating moment. There I was, up on stage. I was so ashamed of the way I looked; I didn’t want people to see me. Little did I know they had problems, too. And Bragg said, “It doesn’t matter what your age is, what your physical condition is. If you obey nature’s laws, you can be born again.” From that moment on, I completely changed my diet, began to exercise, and went on to become captain of the football team. And do you know something? Every time I get ready to lecture, I think, If I can just help one person like I was helped…

Show me the guy who doesn’t get nervous in front of a crowd and I’ll show you a lousy speaker.

Would you get your dog up every day, give him a cup of coffee, a doughnut, and a cigarette? Hell, no. You’d kill the damn dog.

You learn as you go. When I first went on television in 1951, I pulled out a loaf of Langendorf’s white bread, squeezed it into a ball, and threw it down — boom. “That’s what it does when it hits your stomach!” I said. Only problem was that Langendorf’s was one of the network’s sponsors! Oh, jeez, the phone calls. That’s the last time I ever showed a label.

Go on, have a glass of wine with dinner. What is wine, anyway? Pure grapes. A glass of wine is much better for you than a Coke.

If I don’t know what I’m doing by now, I must be pretty stupid.

What I do isn’t about money. Can you put a price on a human life?

Any stupid person can die. Dying’s easy. Living’s a pain in the butt.

I can’t afford to die. It’ll wreck my image.

Imagine-A Tribute to John Lennon by Marc Accetta

On December 8, 1980, John Lennon was murdered outside of his New York apartment building by a deranged fan. Three days before John Lennon was killed, Jonathan Cott spent hours interviewing him for a planned cover story. The complete Q&A, which is running in the new issue of Rolling Stone — available on stands, as well as in the online archives — has never been published before now.

Back to Back….Great Weekend Events just keep coming!

Wow…we’ve just completed what in my opinion was one of the top trainings we’ve had to date over the past 9 years that I’ve been working with Marc AccettaA View from the Edge is a unique training that’s a bit hard to explain! It takes education and entertainment and Marc has mastered the way of combining both of those fields and delivers them with his unique style of public speaking to create an awesome experience.  One crucial element to this years View from the Edge training was our production overhaul that we did.  As you can see from some of our pictures, we’ve totally outdone the production value of this seminar and taken it to that next digital level…that just left everyone at WorldVentures in amazement after the weekend.

I’d like to thank all the people that stopped by my AV station to say, “Thank You” & “Great Job”.  It feels great that I am having a small part in allowing everyone to experience a great event put on by one of the best Personal Growth Trainers and Public Speakers in the world!

But now we’re off to Las Vegas, Nevada for our next 3DayMBA training with Gabe Shirey…I got a chance to visit with Gabe shortly during the View and he told me the line up he has of Speakers, Authors and Internet Marketing Professionals he has lined up for this coming weekend in Vegas and WOW that’s going to be one talent packed room this weekend.  On top of that he has some of the most sought after, inspirational, motivating UFC Machines in the sport coming in to speak!  What’s crazy to me is how down to earth and approachable these guys are, Gabe was super cool in introducing me to his buddies and that was just a awesome highlight to the weekend, as well as an educational-motivational one as well! It was great and I cannot wait to get to Las Vegas and see Marc Accetta in Action on stage alongside some of the best of the best in the industry that I’ve followed, read blogs, follow on twitter, read articles and am looking forward to an incredible weekend of learning and fun….not to mention on top of that it’s Halloween Weekend in VEGAS! Are you kidding me! You can’t miss out this weekend….Click Here for more INFO!
