Happy New Year and my wish for you....

Happy New Year everyone!

I've delayed on posting this because of various activities but even though its late its very heartfelt.

I want you to know that I wish you all the best, but even more I wish you the following...

1.  Passion.

I hope that you're passionate in all you do.  If you're cutting the grass on Saturday morning then be passionate about it.  Working out in the afternoon?  The same.  Life is too short to be an automaton. 

2.  Discipline, not motivation.

Most have used this date on the calendar to make changes in their lives.  I never understood that.  Everyday is a chance to make that change.  You don't have to wait for a new year to begin to do that!  Having said that though I hope you pursue your goals with rugged, immovable discipline and not fleeting motivation.  Times will inevitable get hard.  You will without a doubt not want to follow through on what you've decided to do.  That's when discipline steps in and you do your personal hard thing anyway.

3.  Morale Courage/Not following the crowd.

The mob seems to be ruling the day more and more.  Memes instead of reasoned thought is a thing from a bygone era.  Most follow the crowd instead of charting their own course.  I hope you have the morale courage not to do the easy thing and to go your own way when you see the herd acting like jackasses.

4.  No more consumerism

I was gonna add embrace minimalism but that's probably a step too far for most.  So how about I ask you to simply do your part to end consumerism? We talk all the time about the global economy, China's trade advantage vs the US but rarely do we talk about what consumerism is doing to the average American.  The system is enslaving too many.  The idea that you must have the latest must have product, not because your old one is no longer serviceable but because its the cool thing to do must stop.  Will you be able to defeat that monster completely?  No.  Like I said, the system is setup for this type thing.  You can however tame it in your personal life.  If you're like me then you'll find that you've ended modern day slavery by riding yourself of the need to simply have.

5.  Health

I don't know how we got to the point where we're at but a person that is at their ideal body weight is now an oddity.  I don't know where you're at in your fitness life but true wealth is in your health.  Don't neglect it, exercise everyday, put down the junk food and do your body right.  We don't live in China so you can't buy body parts ...take care of what you have.  Oh and age is irrelevant.  Do what you can the way you can and fuck what others have to say!

It's a small list guys but its just a portion of what I want for you.  To sum it up, I wish each of you (and your families) the very best. 

You guys have been awesome and I appreciate you!
