There are MANY paths, but only ONE journey ✌🏻 . Grateful to be on a journey with this man.❤️ @edmylett 

Today marks exactly 3 years since I was diagnosed with cancer and began my first round of chemotherapy. l can still remember the day my Doctor walked into the hospital room, he sat down, grabbed my hand and told me “Matt, we found an 11 centimeter tumor in your small intestine. We need to rush you to the main campus of the Cleveland Clinic immediately to perform further testing...We believe it is cancer”. Every time I picture this moment in my head, I’m not overcome with fear and anxiety, or questioning why this happened to me. But instead I ask how is this happening for me and instantly I become grateful for my life and thankful for the adversity I faced because without it, I wouldn’t have the passion and drive to share my story and help others. My message for you today is stop burying life’s challenges because you’re ashamed, defeated or feeling like a failure. Use them as a learning tool to become a greater and more powerful you! We all face some type of adversity in life but it’s our attitude that can determine our level of success and happiness .🔑

Who do you hang out with most? What kind of books do you read? The effect these two factors have on your life astounding. . Surround yourself with people who call you to a higher standard. People who support your #goals  and #dreams . People who genuinely want you to succeed in life and who you would want to model your life after. 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️ . Read books that challenge you and expand your mind! Pursue wisdom, #personaldevelopment  and #excellence . REFUSE to grow stagnant. 📚🌱 . When the people you hang out with most and the books you read align with your vision -- you become UNSTOPPABLE. 🙌

Unreal speech from @drjoedispenza  to kickoff the first day of our #AreteSyndicate  Coeur d’Alene summit! “When feelings become the means of thinking, or if we cannot think greater than how we feel, we can never change. To change is to think greater than how we feel. To change is to act greater than the familiar feelings of the memorized self.” - Dr. Joe Dispenza #iamArete 

Family matters! Grateful to god for my wife and this little one right here. 15 month check up and we have a healthy baby girl. Praise the lord and my wife @itsannaopalewski  who does an amazing job as a Mom! Take some time today to be grateful for something!💯💯♥️

Over here getting inspired by my 12 year old to get back into shape. Life’s a trip. I’ve been waiting my whole life to workout with this kid. 💪🏼❤️ - #prouddad  #dadbod  #mondaymotivation 

If you have rental properties or are considering investing in one, you will want to read this post! - There is a tax concept called “Depreciation Recapture” that catches many first-time rental sellers off guard when they go to sell their property at a profit. - The favorable Capital Gains tax rate allows for taxpayers to pay a lower rate when they hold investments for longer than a year and sell the property for a gain. - But the “gotcha” here is that during the entire time you have the rental you are taking depreciation expense as a deduction against your ordinary income the IRS says that since you received an ordinary income DEDUCTION, that you need to pick that back up at ordinary income tax rates. - So let’s say you buy a rental for $100,000 and sell it 4 years later for $125,000. You will pay the lower capital gains rate on $25,000 (125-100), but then will have ordinary income tax on $14,545 (the amount of depreciation expense you would take on 4 years of a $100k property). - That’s a significant difference in tax! - Bottom line, before you sell a rental property, always discuss the potential tax ramifications with your CPA. - Tag a real estate investor!

This is a common deduction I see missed by new business owners!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you use your cell phone (and who doesn’t) to help you generate income in your business, then the business portion of your phone bill is deductible.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That can be taking client calls, responding to emails, managing social media, or any number of activities you can do from your phone these days.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Make sure you pay the bill from your business account so you don’t miss the deduction!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Now use that phone and tag a business associate in the comments! 😉⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 𝐃𝐞𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐲𝐥𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐲 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐦𝐲 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐞𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐯𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐨, 𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐢𝐧 𝐛𝐢𝐨 💯

You know when your hair closely resembles a birds nest you’ve had a good workout 😂 . I talked about nutrition sustainability the other day and working out is just the same. You’ve got the find something that YOU enjoy. . And guess what? That may change. . I started lifting in the gym and doing bodybuilding style of workouts for about the past 3 years. . At the start of this year I was starting to dread going to the gym. It was such a chore, I was maybe going twice a week and I was simply not enjoying my workouts. . That was a major red flag for me since working out has always been something that I’ve enjoyed. So I tried something new! And that just so happened to be CrossFit. (Which if you know me is a huge deal because I used to trash talk it SO MUCH). . Turns out, I love it! The challenge is great, I’m looking forward to working out again and it’s something I am consistently doing. . This is not to say to go out and start doing CrossFit. But if you’re feeling burnt out with your current routine, try something new! Whether that be yoga, swimming, EMOM’s in the gym, at home workouts, try it all! See what works for you. . Just like with nutrition, the best workout is the one that you and enjoy and can sustain long term. . #iam1stphorm  #duespaid

Year 1-3: $0 . Year 4-10: $695 a month . $58,380 TOTAL my first 10 years in business. . Now a days people look at where they are and think "I can never get there"...because in todays society all you hear about is instant gratification and overnight success stories. . 20 YEARS. . Think about that for a minute and let set. . Think about something you have dedicated your life to for 20 years. . Besides eating, sleeping, breathing...most people have a hard time coming up with an example when asked that question. . And THATS precisely the problem. . Society will have you believe that there is such a thing as "overnight success" or "luck". We are bombarded by it daily in the media. . Movie stars, lottery winners, reality shows its all we see anymore. . What they dont show you is the TRUTH. . The small business started by two 19 year old kids with 12 grand the earned from painting the stripes on parking lots. . The sleeping in the back of their first store. . The struggle. . The pain. . The sacrifice. . The loss. . The heartbreak. . The fear. . The loss of sanity. . The anger. . The hate. . The bitterness. . No...all they show is the after effect. . The cars. . The big house. . The expensive vacations. . They show the gourmet prepared steak, but they dont show the butcher doing his work. . So when looking at all these successes...BE INSPIRED...but be aware of the "butchering" (WORK) that goes into making that steak. . Beware of the trap of instant gratification. . Nothing thats truly worthwhile can be had "now". The "The American Dream" is not given, its EARNED. .

I won’t say I’m perfect. I won’t pretend to be ok when I’m not. I won’t put on a show for attention. I won’t hide my feelings. - One thing people always say about me...I have a terrible poker face 😂 You know exactly how I’m feeling...good and bad. - So with my first rotation done, psychiatry has been incredible to learn about. The people, systems, medications, even just how businesses are run. I’ve learned so much about myself...maybe I was the one in therapy for this past month 😱 - So to quote a famous book, because the human experience is so diverse yet connecting...”We’re all mad here” 🐰⏱ - Here’s to one month down and tons more to go! #AreteMindset  #Femalephysicians  #GingerDocDO  #GingersOfInstagram  #IamArete  #MedSchoolLife  #OsteopathicStudent  #StudentPhysician  #gingerlifter  #gingersofinstagram  #medschoollife  #redheadsofinstagram  #IamArete  #osteopathy  #Iam1stPhorm  #Arete 

. Are you someone who follows through with your commitments? . Have you been able to commit to your physical health? This may sound harsh, but if you can’t answer that question, I think it’s time you needed a wakeup call 😟 . What can keep a person from achieving their physical goals? Why is the thought of losing weight so pleasant, but the execution of that thought seems impossible? . For some, it’s the lack of knowledge and resources losing weight and getting healthy is no easy feat when you don’t know what you’re doing! 🧐 . For others, it’s the limiting beliefs that keep them from committing because motivation can only take them so far… You have to truly believe you’re capable of transforming yourself! 🤩 . This is why I have dedicated my life to physical change and transformation. I truly want to see your transformation happen! I want you to lose that stubborn weight and start feeling so much better about your body and your health. 💪🏼 . Drop the excuses! Take that step and COMMIT to yourself! . You can start by signing up with the Commit Program… I created this program to help you dial down on your techniques and strategy. . The Commit Program will push your body to the next level so you can physically see the weight loss and change! I am committed to helping you, so what's stopping you from commiting to helping you? . I would love to answer all of your questions, so DM me “Commit!” so we can get started today on your FULL BODY TRANSFORMATION 💯 . “Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” ― George Bernard Shaw .

Hard not to smile this hard when you get to rip it in your dream car. 🏎💨 • • Or should I say goal car? I could dream about this car all day every day, but it is a goal and belief of mine that I will one day possess it. • • But it will ONLY be a DREAM, if I do not put the WORK, in to make it to my GOAL. Which is owning one or multiple Lamborghini’s and other super cars. • • I needed to feel that steering wheel, the power, the sound of that engine. It was everything I’ve ever dreamed and visualized about. • • Some people don’t understand the motivation of material things. • • “Why do you want a Lamborghini?” simple....because I love cars and I want it. #fullsend 

There are a lot of people that will tell you that to be successful you need to grind grind grind, hustle, hustle, hustle. Both the hustle and the grind are important, but so is the rest in between. Cheetahs can go from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds flat and are the world’s fastest land mammal. But do you know what Cheetahs do when they are not hunting? They rest and spend as little energy as possible. As entrepreneurs, we need to work hard, harder than the average employee. But for true success, it is vital to take time to rest and recuperate. So take time to rest, sleep in, watch Netflix, spent time in nature, reflect, whatever it is that allows you to rest and regain your energy. And don’t let these “hustlers” make you feel bad or guilty for doing so. Let me know in the comments. What types of things do you do to regain your strength and rest? How often do you take the time to do so? . . . . . #truesuccess  #entreprenuers  #businessmindset  #entreprenuermindset  #metime  #restandrelax  #iamarete  #atetefamily  #aretrsundicate  #keystosuccess  #successfulliving  #successhacks  #businessadvice  #didyouknow  #hustle  #grind  #truegrind  #wealthylife  #netflixandchill  #Ferrari  #indianmotorcycle  #businessman  #keystosuccess

Surround yourself around people who make you want to be better. . .

If they are not serving you in a way that allows you to level up... It's OK to distance yourself. Protect that energy! . . As always, I left yesterday's meetup full of gratitude- got some new plans for lead gen for the design company and more clarity as i build out an app idea. Now to take action! 👊 . .

They say your income is the average of the 5 people you hang out with. In addition, I believe that our personal happiness level also correlates to the people we hang out with most. Cutting people out your circle is one of the toughest things in life but if you don't prune yourself from the 'takers' then it's just a matter of time until you're surrounded by negative- minded people. The light at the end of the tunnel is there, just got to have faith‼️ ➖➖➖ That being said, I can't say enough how appreciative I am to be surrounded by such a positive and energized group. The Money Gang Austin team has been one of the easiest going, top producing offices I've had in my 10 years. These guys are gonna change the world 🌎🤙🏼 ➖➖➖ We still have some openings in our Austin, TX office through the end of October if anyone is thinking about trying out sales or needs an extension office 🙌🏼

Just out here walking and running some hills around the neighborhood! 3 weeks into #75Hard  and damn, I'm actually starting to look forward to my outdoor workouts 🤔 They say it takes 21 days to make it break a habit. I'm on day 22. Initially, I just went all in and started without a real game plan. After a few days I started playing with different plans and routines, and am finally feeling good about it! Many have asked what the challenge is, do fur all of you outside of my Arete Apex world, here you go: 🎯 Workout twice a day, 45 minutes each, 1 must be outdoors. 🎯 Take a progress picture each day 🎯 Drink 1 gallon of water each day 🎯 Read 10 pages of personal development content each day. 🎯 Stick to a meal/eating plan of your choice, each day. No cheat days! 🎯 NO Alcohol! Yes it's difficult, yes you need the right mindset, yes you will need a plan, and yes...if you fail at anytime on any aspect, you start over or quit. No, it's not for everyone, no it's not impossible, no I'm crazy 🤪 So why in the hell would I do this? All a part of the JG3 project my friends! Testing and re-testing my mental toughness, improving in multiple disciplines each day, competing against no one but myself for the ultimate prize... gains in confidence, self awareness, discipline, planning, organization, structure, mental toughness, etc. Not money, not attention, not likes and hearts. My commitment to personal growth and success journey is not for sale! 👊👊👊 . . #iamarete  #iamapex  #iamgoalden  #areteaccelerator  #aretesyndicate  #100to0  #maxout  #fye  #dreambig  #workhard  #becomelegendary  #becomegoalden  #leaveyourlegacy  #personalgrowth  #personaldevelopment  #entrepreneur  #growthmindset  #thinkdifferent  #business  #success  ##75hard  #75hardchallenge

On the P&L employees are expense and a lot of times we, myself included, fall victim to seeing our employees as an expense when in fact these people are really making us money and helping us grow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are saying good bye today to two dedicated and loyal employees, Scott and Debbie. These two Navy Veterans have shipped nearly 99% of every package shipped from @strikeforceenergy  . Sadly today is their last day as set off to enjoy the rest of their lives work-free in retirement! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With mixed emotions we say congrats and thank you, but also we are left with a void to fill. These two definitely left us better than where were started and we wish them a happy retirement! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you Scott and Debbie for your service to our country, dedication and loyalty to Strike Force Energy. #happyretirement  #strikeforceenergy  #iamarete

What is your first thought when you see this picture?? mine is my insecurities. I look at all my flaws from being in shape to feeling out of shape. this is a mindset that we all have on ourselves. this is the mindset that holds us back from everything in life this is the mindset that I want to change for all of the women going forward embark in my journey to change women’s lives, tag three friends in this photo #ViragoAF  put down your insecurity five bad ass virago girls will get #ViragoGear  & #1stphorm  supplements #womanempowerment  #womanstrong  #changewomanslives  #womanentrepreneur  #badass  #iamarete  #aretesyndicate  #viragogirls  #aretewoman 

No excuses. No fluff. . I have system of alarms and checklists to make sure dumb stuff like this doesn’t happen. So what did happen? . I got comfortable. I got complacent. I thought I had phase 1 knocked out. I silenced my reminder alarm on my phone and didn’t set aside 10min to visualize my goals. FAIL!! . It’s like when you were a kid learning to catch a baseball and the ball is coming straight for your face so you put the glove up and it causes you to loose sight of the ball...your reaction is to move your glove to see the ball and what happens? . The split second that is used to make this adjustment causes you to loose focus and 💥thwack! You get hit it the fucking nose!! . Stay focused!

Happy Friday! 🥳 It’s another beautiful day in NWI, and the shop is full of new fall arrivals 🍂 These perfume rollers from Chicago maker @woodandwaxco  smell soooo good and are perfect to pop into your purse to take on the go 🌻 Open 10a-7p today!

I miss these dudes . I actually miss everyone that I met and talked to at the summit . The days after an @aretesyndicate  summit you fight what the @hardcorecloser  calls, "The Force of Average" and it is working extra hard to get you back to average after a summit . It doesn't want you to be better than average . I want all of my arete friends to fight hard and kick ass until I see you again in October! . This summit was at a completely higher level than last year . Just so you know, what you see here, are just a few band members . It's obvious that there will be more than entrepreneurs and businesses created and built from from Arete . @magpatriot  is part of the boy band trio with @edmylett  and @andyfrisella  . @ablood2  and I formed a country band and already have a song in the works . There could be a bro-country supergroup in the future, who knows . . . . . #iamarete  #aretewisdom  #aretesyndicate  #entrepreneur  #businessowner  #friends  #boybands  #countrybands

I was a failure ⁣ ⁣ That sentence is a belief I once had about failing. ⁣ ⁣ That it would define me. That failing at anything would label me negatively. ⁣ ⁣ I described it as competitive. I was wrong. ⁣ ⁣ I was afraid. ⁣ Afraid to try new things. ⁣ Afraid to not be the best. ⁣ Afraid to fall short. ⁣ ⁣ Ego? Disappointment? Not being the best? ⁣ Probably a combination of all of them to be honest. ⁣ ⁣ Las night I met with some entrepreneurs who are also in Arete. ⁣ Applying, much less being a part and active in Arete has been extremely outside my comfort zone. And that is why I am so proud of being a part of it. ⁣ Being one of the least educated and experienced business wise, has been intimidating. But realizing I have so much to learn and gain has been a powerful motivator through the unknown. ⁣ ⁣ During our discussion we discussed the topic of failure. More specifically, that 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐜𝐚𝐧'𝐭 𝐛𝐞 𝐚𝐟𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐢𝐭 when it comes to success. ⁣ ⁣ While discussing this, one of my collegues looked up at me and said:⁣ ⁣ "𝘠𝘰𝘶 𝘥𝘰𝘯'𝘵 𝘴𝘦𝘦𝘮 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘪𝘴 𝘢𝘧𝘳𝘢𝘪𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘧𝘢𝘪𝘭𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵𝘴𝘰𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳." ⁣ ⁣ And that was a powerful moment. ⁣ ⁣ Like I said, I've been there. Crippled with fear. Stagnant because of fear. ⁣ ⁣ But now, that's not the case.⁣ ⁣ I've grown. ⁣ I've put in the work. ⁣ I've paid the dues. ⁣ I've challenged my thinking and perspective. ⁣ ⁣ And I came out on the other side. ⁣ ⁣ It's astounding what you don't realize until someone new points it out. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞. ⁣ Put in the work. Do the little things. In time, you'll be everything you hoped to be. ⁣

Challenge yourself daily. What are you doing to push yourself out of the comfort zone? . Roughly 60 days ago I was at 4 consecutive pullups. I have a 90 day goal of 12. . I thought today was going to be the day. 2 days removed from the stomach bug I knew my weight would be light and would give me the best shot at 12. . The gas tank ran dry on 11. Back to the regularly scheduled workout and keep grinding away. . Incremental gains stack up to make great gains. . Makeup for day 21 video challenge.

Day twelve of 75 complete Life is incredible. Bob Proctor is the first person that I heard about the Law of Attraction from. Jim Rohn introduced me to the idea of investing more into your own growth than any other thing in your life. Napoleon Hill taught me that life is entirely made up of thoughts. From there the momentum took a life of it's own : Norman Vincent Peale, Darren Hardy, John C. Maxwell, Stephen Covey, Harvey Mackay, Dale Carnegie, Bob Burg, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Tony Hsieh, Simon Sinek, Ed Mylett, and Andy Frisella. Why are all of these names going to be remembered? Because they have helped, are helping, and are going to continue to help people succeed and find fulfillment in life. These leaders made it their missions to use their experience and perspective to help as many people as they possibly can. It makes me think often about the impact I am leaving. It makes me think about the legacy I will leave behind. I have come far from where I started, but I'm not even close to how far I'm going. Growth every day to the last. #arete  #iamarete  #75hard  #100to0  #maxout  #bobproctor  #jimrohn  #napoleonhill  #normanvincentpeale  #darrenhardy  #johncmaxwell  #stephencovey  #harveymackay  #dalecarnegie  #bobburg  #tonyrobbins  #briantracy  #tonyhsieh  #simonsinek  #edmylett  #andyfrisella 

Just finished my first round of exercise with my new @investfitness  weight vest. . . Outdoor walks are a regular part of my exercise routine and I felt like I needed to step up the intensity. The vest definitely did that. . . I started with 30lbs tonight. I have additional plates to push it up to 55lbs. I’m interested to see how these results play out. If nothing else, its phenomenal training for hunting season! . . #fitness  #100to0  #iamarete  #training  #core4  #getupandgetafterit 

This was a fantastic #aretesyndicate  #iamarete  call today. So great to be able to get access to @ablood2  and @colehatter  from the Syndicate. Thank you to you both for your pearls of wisdom 👍

Over time, we have learned to suppress some of the most fun aspects of our individuality. Most of us express our distinctiveness in many ways throughout our lives. Although, as we proudly share our offbeat traits and preferences with the world, we take great pains to downplay those eccentricities we ourselves deem odd. Instead of living lives colored by these quirky impulses, we seek out socially acceptable outlets for our peculiarities. We may not realize that we are editing ourselves in this way because our individual societal awareness is unintentionally attuned to the attitudes of the people we encounter each day. Over time, we have learned to suppress some of the most fun aspects of individuality. To rediscover and embrace these buried traits, we need only ask ourselves what we would do if we knew for certain that no one would judge our choices. Visualizing this day without judgment can help you better understand the idiosyncrasies that are an important part of who you are but seldom manifest themselves in your existence. Perhaps you secretly dream of replacing grown-up, conservative clothing in favor of a changing array of costumes. You may envision yourself painting your car electric-green, hugging the trees in a crowded local park, singing joyous songs as you skip through your community, or taking up an exciting hobby like fire spinning. Try not to be surprised, however, if your imagination takes you in unexpectedly simple directions. In your musings, you may see yourself doing things such as breaking out in dance or dying your hair a fun color. Regardless of the nature of your suppressed peculiarities, ask yourself what is really stopping you from making them a part of your life, and then resolve to incorporate at least one into your everyday existence. Life as we know it is so short. Making the most of years we are granted is a matter of being ourselves even though we know that we will inevitably encounter people who disapprove of our choices. When you shake your tail feathers like no one is watching, you will discover that there are many others who appreciate you because you are willing to let go of any inhibition. #aretesyndicate  #viragomuscle

It wasn’t me. *cue Shaggy* . But in all seriousness though, how often do we place the blame on others for mistakes? Or when something bad happens to us? . I watched a great video the other day from Dr. Brene Brown on blame. It talked about how when something goes wrong the vast majority of us immediately want to know who’s fault it is. . One of the things she said in the video is, “I would rather have it be my fault, than no ones fault. Why? Because it gives us some semblance of control.” . Simply what blame is, is the discharge of anger and pain from the body. And does that really solve any problems? . I know for me, learning to take accountability for my actions has been a process. It takes changing the way the gears in your mind work and reframing those blaming style of questions that you ask yourself everyday. . And it’s not easy. But let me tell you, the way your perspective changes and the way the you approach problem solving is absolutely worth the process. . If you haven’t seen the video by Dr. Brown, go watch it! It’s only three minutes and the value from that time is endless. . #iam1stphorm  #legionofboom 

Here's the honest truth: I didn't get to where I am by being fucking lucky 🍀🎰🎲 . A few weeks into starting at @industry_threadworks  I told both @invictus5326  and @disney_marie_  that I wanted to run their warehouse. At the time, it was almost half the operation we have now and they said they wouldn't see it needing that type of oversight for maybe another year. . I could have easily taken that at face value, said okay, and simply continue to do the job I had at the time. . But that's just not me. . I've worked my way up to the position I have in a short amount of time based on my ability to set my sights on what I want and to do the little shit to make it happen. . There's nothing glamorous about putting orders in bags and mailing them off, but I made it a point to do it and do it well. For months. . There is a combination of speed, efficiency, and quality checking every item that is going out (All of which I learned to do at volume working in kitchens). . I knew that if I could work my ass off to get really good at the trivial tasks, I would properly set myself up to show I was more than capable to handle the bigger tasks. . And that right there is the point: . There is no fucking luck or secret. . You create your own luck and opportunities by doing the fucking work - internally and externally - and doing it so well that people just think you're lucky. . It takes doing shit you don't want to do, fixing things you don't feel like solving, and even putting in more effort that you feel you want to at times. . But when it's all said and done, you'll know you earned what it is you have the next time someone says, 'must be nice'. . Onward and upward. . . . . . #iamarete  #dothework  #100to0  #maxout 

I’ve cut my gym sessions down to about 3 days a week with the Jiu Jitsu/kickboxing classes being 4 days a week. . I love lifting weights and always will, but it’s important to to always be learning something new. . People get too set in their ways and just go through the motions everyday. This is why you hear so often about people dying in their 20s and not being buried until their 70s. . Don’t be that person. Get out there and experience all that life has to offer

Things truly happen for you, not to you. . Flight was delayed tonight due to not having a pilot. Everyone had to disembark the plane. Fricking 2 1/2 hour delay. 🙏🏽 Thank goodness. . 30 minutes after we got off the plane, a late notice @aretesyndicate  call meeting occurred. I was able to jump on and actively listen to the call without any distractions because I didn’t have to worry about re-boarding until after the call. .

💪STOP SCROLLING AND READ🔥 Post workout nutrition is the SINGLE MOST important thing you should be adding to your routine RIGHT NOW to help you reach your goals... Why❓ Because it’s the ONLY TIME that a supplement is better than whole foods Science 🤓 ? Regular food digests slow, after a workout we need nutrition... like right now. So having a fast digesting whey protein and carb source post workout will allow your muscles to get the nutrients and energy needed to start recovering! Faster recover = being less sore Not only that but we are going to build MORE toned muscle by adding this post workout More muscle = better performance 💪 AND More muscle = burning more fat every day🔥 What’s the best product to take I take Phormula-1 (isolate protein) and ignition (fast digesting carbs) because they are the highest quality products on the market. Just remember. High quality products = high quality results. Nobody got to where they wanted to be my taking shortcuts. Just HMU if you have any question or need the hook up 😏

Another killer call with the @aretesyndicate  members @colehatter  and @ablood2  sharing some wisdom. This #areteaccelerator  program only gets better and better. Thank you @andyfrisella  and @edmylett  and all the members I’ve been connecting with. Industries are shifting. #iamarete  #business  #growth  #startup  #changetheworld

Do you even read my posts? Do you even read my posts? Do you even read my posts? Do you even read my posts? Do you even read my posts? I swear social media is becoming to fucked up. I’m honestly pissed because I see it as a place to help others, gain knowledge, teach, and share a little love. I hope my following grows into more people like this. I want you to educate me and me to educate you. I shouldn’t have to post pictures of my ass, body, or face for people to even acknowledge my posts. Straighten the fuck up y’all. Anyways. Plus side is I’ve been hitting the gym a lot lately and have been bettering my lifestyle all around. #iamarete  #iam1stphorm  #areteaccelerator  #aretesyndicate  #business  #exercise  #health  #gym  #entrepreneur 

This weekend was the first summit of this year’s @aretesyndicate  and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn from our mentors @edmylett  and @andyfrisella.  To have my vision expanded, create new connections, renew old connections and learn from some of the very best in business is truly a blessing. The weekend went way too quick, but I am excited that this is only the beginning. Big things to come. #iamarete 

Been thinking lately about what NYC means to me. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I have family here, but I rarely see them. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Friends, but the quality ones are far and few between. ⠀⠀ The longer I'm here, the more I want to escape. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ It's so familiar, but I don't recognize myself here anymore. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Suffocating. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I think that's the best word to describe it. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ How can I live in a city surrounded by so many people, but feel so alone? ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #ExcellenceIsLonely  #Escape  #iamArete

My face when I remember that I used to starve myself of carbohydrates. 🤣 . I had been taught for years that carbs were the enemy, and constantly saw the carb-restrictive lifestyle glorified as some magical quick-fix to reaching all of my physical goals. . The truth of the matter is though, that carbs are the body’s preferred source of energy. 🔥 . When doing any type of resistance training, the human body will use up the glycogen (aka carbs) that it has stored in the muscle to fuel your workout. . So after a workout, we need to replenish those glycogen stores if we want to properly recover and grow. . See, our bodies aren’t interested in six packs or capped delts. 🤷🏻‍♀️ . Our bodies are focused on survival, which means making sure we “restock” enough stored glycogen for useable energy as fast as possible. . If we are only taking in a protein source after a workout, our body will take the time to convert that protein back into glycogen, BEFORE it prioritizes using the protein for muscle growth. . This means that any physical progress we’re making will be slower and less noticeable. 😭 . That’s why the post-workout window is so important, and honestly the ONLY time that a supplement is truly better than a whole food source. . Phormula-1 is a hydrolyzed whey protein isolate, which means that it’s a pure, quick-digesting protein that has already been broken down into smaller units, ready for your muscles to utilize in the most efficient way possible. . Ignition is a dexanhydrous glucose supplement, which basically means that it’s a dehydrated carbohydrate in its simplest, easiest and quickest digestible form. . These two products combined will replenish the body of it’s glycogen as quickly as possible, while also helping shuttle that protein into the muscle. . Ignition even has micronutrients added to it as well, since we usually sweat during a workout and can lose a lot of micronutrients though perspiration. . . . Phromula-1 and Ignition have been total game changers for me!! . From carb starvation, to having 23g of carbs in my post-workout shake alone, I’ve never been happier or healthier, and I’m here to help you achieve the same!!!! 💙 #iam1stphorm 

Who do you hang out with most? What kind of books do you read? The effect these two factors have on your life astounding. . Surround yourself with people who call you to a higher standard.

Read books that challenge you and expand your mind! Pursue wisdom, #personaldevelopment  and #excellence . REFUSE to grow stagnant. 📚🌱 . When the people you hang out with most and the books you read align with your vision -- you become UNSTOPPABLE. 🙌
