The most appreciated attribute is…

Disney Cast Member name tags
Some of my very first Disney Cast Member name tags and Cast exclusive WDW anniversary pins from 1982, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988…

The most appreciated attribute is…

Effort.

My favorite people in the gym are the ones who feel like they don’t belong there.

Why?

Because of the courage i know they had to summon simply to walk in the front door and try.

The looks, the stares, the mumblings under the breath from gym rats.

i generally tell these brave people who look like they don’t belong that they inspire me and that i hope to see them here a year from now.

As You Get Older

One, two, or both

aging and attitude
They are 100+ years old and talk like they are 17.

One, two, or both.

As we age, it’s common for our minds to stay sharp – as if we were teens – with little conscious effort.

As we age, our body doesn’t preserve itself similarly. The best we can do is to work hard to slow the decline of our physical strength, endurance, flexibility, and core. This is influenced by what we eat, how we sleep, and most importantly, by our tireless, daily motivation.

There are exceptionally fit older humans. You can be one of them too. i am.

Looking For Creative Ideas?

Can you guess who they blame?

Disney Innovation Speakers
It ain’t the Magic that makes it work, it’s the work that makes it Magic. Shot six videos and the client will pick only one.

 

No unfit person resolves to go to the gym the first week of January and becomes incredibly fit in a couple months.

Yet.

Yet in their dreams, they hope and think “this time i mean business” and I’m going to transform myself.

Being well is more involved than simply becoming physically active.

You have to also change your habits with sleep, eating, flexibility, core, and motivation – this assumes you are getting adequate strength and cardio from your gym visits.

And because everything needs to change, hopeful gym members are almost guaranteed to fail.

Can you guess who they blame?

Need Help Not Giving Up?

Worry about state changes before you need to

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
The time to worry about things is when you don’t have to.

 

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

 

Boredom and lifelong effort are often competing against each other for our affection.

Boredom often wins and when it does, our efforts nosedive.

When our efforts tumble, so does our motivation.

This is dangerous.

It often lasts a lifetime.

Win at all costs.
