This is one reason that Father’s day isnt just one day a year, but is celebrated and cherished every day of my life. We are all shaped good or bad by the experiences and people in our lives through out the years.
I am super grateful for my father, biological father has been a rock and leader and to this day I have much love and respect for him. Also, there are many other fathers that have come along in my life at different times, when the presence of my physical father was not around. And, to those men I stand and applaud you with a tear in my eye and chill in my skin and a full heart.
Coach Engle, Kevin, Todd, Bob, Myke, Tim, Wayne, and many others. Being a coach myslef afford me the opportuntiy to raise Sons not my own, to see the young man they will be in the next 5–10 years. I believe these men I name have thought the same of me. So this is why I say a father is celebrated mor than one day a year. Fathers are needed in every sector of society, especially when children I raised fatherless. This is a big issue in our country and family is the cornerstone of what makes our society and nations great. And to be spiritually minded it is God’s will that men be fathers to their children and to others that are lacking that guidance.
I have fully embraced coaching as a route to change lives and to better society and I take my hat off to those that do the same. We have many sons not our own and that has to be the motto. Sports are a microcosm of life and its our responsibility to complete the circle of humanity.
I am very passionate to not only raise my own children, but my heart goes out to those young men and women that need an example of what it takes to thrive as a man, father, husband for their future selves. Whats your calling in life, if it is to be a father to the fatherless like my Lord and savior then join the club.
Blessings to you and the “Fathers” out there today,
Do you really want to stick to a good healthy habit? Well you gotta listen to this because this has been proven in my life so many years that when I feel like I get off track, I just revert right back to it and make it as plain as possible.
The most recent habit that I am really proud of, is the one that I chose to make my health a priority. And making my health a priority there were a lot of things that I needed to change, well I wasn’t so off from my habits but there were some questionable habits in there. What am I saying, my habits were terrible!
So, the first thing was to find a way to start diluting the negative talk in my head. I needed to change my input quick and in a hurry. What I did was I reached out to a nutrition and fitness coach by the name of Jeffrey at Revolution fitness (Facebook, Instagram). What Jeffrey began to do was start to ask me really good questions, questions that I never really took the time to think about or maybe not even really wanted to answer.
What these questions the words made me to start thinking more concretely about my health and seriously why wasn’t I making myself a priority. Did I really want to live a long healthy life, do I really want to suffer from chronic pains as I got older, do I really want to be around for my grandchildren? These are questions and the input that I needed to start me on my journey and really come to an honest and open dialogue with myself and my wife.
These thoughts and answers to the questions that I had in my head and heart let me take action immediately. I began to journal and write down my goals every day and speak them out loud, I spoke to myself constantly about how proud I was even for the little that I did, or the major things I would do. I thought and spoke of this as a long-term project. Meaning years in the making (I’m in year two) I began to just get up and move.
I started off with walking them a fitness plan was delivered to me from my fitness coach to follow and a meal regiment. I was determined to just do and at one day at a time making each day a resolution to conquer my fears and thoughts and make myself a priority.
To keep myself accountable I would reach out to my coach once a week give him updates through myfitness pal tracking (an app) my macros and eating. Also, I would let him know my weight every week and I posted socially on Snapchat my first year each day whether I felt like it or not ( so others would see it)
To give you a formula of what I used here it is below:
Having and adopting a good and healthy habit lifestyle will lead you to more peace, more joy, more clarity, and more power in the moment.
Thank you for allowing me to encourage you today on your path and journey and helping you to maximize any given moment in your life for success.
Blessings Coach Milton
This is a subject that no a lot of people will gravitate towards, but if you continue reading know this will help you and possibly helps another.
Here is my perspective and it is also my experiences, that you can’t change anyone. Change is always driven from the inside to the outside. Sounds easy right? But its one if the most difficult steps to take for any person. Sometimes we choose this path to change and sometimes this path is thrown onto us. It is a given we change everyday and change is inevitable, but the hard truth is that with change growth is always optional.
Self accountability has to be the question at hand during these times. If, we can be accountable to ourselves based on our thoughts, words and actions, this world would change overnight. So the theme of this blog “Change Me” needs to be the cry for systemic change in our country and world.
Allow this theme as an opportunity to overcome your mental block or ceiling of what is possible. Changing your outlook, perceptions, bias and prejudice will change how you look at your neighbor. Each of us was born what special abilities and gifts, hint towards a marvel comic or movie. But seriously we are all gifted , and all gifts are different even though they seem the same. The variable is you and your uniqueness.
Because of this ability, you were made to overcome someone else’s impossibility and to attain what’s your possibility. Your change is the wonderful gift to the world. Let me say it another way. You were made for what this world needs you to accomplish. So there is no impossible for you, and all left is “I am possible with change “
When you stand in your success, when you stand in your changed perspective, when you stand in the truth of who you are and in appreciation of the diversity of others, you give inspiration and permission for others to stand in their possibilities and success. I am fully confident that you are great and greatness lives in the inside of you. Change into the greatness starting today.
Let this encourage you today to live in your possibilities and allow the courage to flow to others as an inspiration.
