Something important is missing from many people’s lives.

Something that explains why they’re so stressed, anxious, and depressed.

Something that they try to brush aside with entertaining distractions, grandiosity, and things to do, see, and wear.

A gnawing undercurrent that leaves them feeling empty, adrift, and defeated.

What is it?

It’s purpose, values, and standards against which they can measure their lives.

In short, it’s a game worth playing.

This is what people aren’t getting from their jobs, friends, families, governments, or, more importantly, from themselves.

And without it, nothing else really matters. 

Without a game worth playing, life becomes a sea of random events that only serve to further alienate us from who we really are and want to be.

And so it goes for most.

Their lives happen to them, accidentally rather than intentionally, without rhyme or reason, direction or meaning.

It doesn’t have to be like this, though. 

Fate Has dealt Us A Hand, But We Get To Choose How We Play It.

And this is one of the reasons why I love fitness: It gives us a game worth playing.

It has purpose, order, and significance. It’s an outlet for integrity, intention, and excellence. It fosters community, commitment, and a clear focus on worthwhile results. 

The type of results that you can’t buy, steal, or inherit. They type that symbolize discipline, self-respect, and passion. The type that speak louder than any words or postures.

The fitness game goes deeper than that, too.

I believe that if you have what it takes to conquer your psychology and physiology, then you have what it takes to reach out into the world and conquer a lot more.

I believe that you can use this game as a springboard into bigger and better games.

How much bigger and better, you wonder? How much are you truly capable of?

Well, that’s for you to find out, and if you ask me, it’s far more than you’ve been led to believe.

Since being featured in ASKMEN, offers for product endorsements, celebrity training opportunities and speaking gigs have been coming in left, right and centre. 

Naturally I am fucking stoked. But to be honest I am also terrified.

You see… I have a fear of public speaking. Like most public speaking, no matter how many times I do it scares the shit out of me (I actually threw up before I spoke for my first time in front of 500+ people)

I mean it is said that more people fear public speaking then they do death. I think thats a slight exaggeration. But…I know that it really isn’t fear that stops people.

It’s actually their comfort zones.

Like you, my comfort zone was like…

“Peter it’s scary to speak in front of 500 people you should just keep doing what your doing and not do it.”

And That, Right There, Is Where Average People Get Stuck

Guys like us though… we push thru.

I immedietly told my comfort zone to fvck off. I have lives to change and value to give the world. Then I committed to speaking. Am I still scared?

Hell ya. But now I am excited. Because when you decide to face your fears that is when the good shit happens. That is when you grow as a person.

So if you find yourself scared of something I urge you to have a little talk with your comfort zone. Tell her that it’s time for you to take a little break. You are making a pivot in your life and you want to explore new things.

Make it clear to her that it’s not her, it’s you.

And you are sorry for any inconvenience your previous relationship has caused but now it’s time for her to go latch onto someone else.

Then politely (and enthusiastically) say…

Fuck YOU comfort zone! It’s time for me to do epic shit.

Nothing Good Happens Inside Your comfort Zone

There’s no growth, no evolution. Nothing good happens when you’re comfortable either. 

Comfort is waiting, it’s weakening, it’s devolving. 

Evolution occurs only under extreme stress. That’s how you evolve in the gym, by putting your body through stress. It shouldn’t be a comfortable place. 

You evolve as a man by doing what other men are unwilling to do. By working harder, becoming self-reliant, studying instead of watching others live their lives. 

Think about the areas of your life where you’re most comfortable. 

Do you have a routine that doesn’t push you? 

Is your fall back action to look at your phone? 

Do you rest at your day’s end in front of the TV? 

Have you stayed in your hometown because it’s safe and familiar? 

What about your job, are you pushing yourself enough? 

Every day should be stressful, but not in the ‘worry’ sense. It should be filled with action and focus rather than ease and relaxation. 

Identify your comfort zones and set out to break through them if you want to grow, evolve, and improve. If you’re content with remaining as you are for the rest of your life, then keep doing as your doing. 

People underestimate their potential. Almost all of us do. 

It’s not out of humility, as few are genuinely humble enough to try to learn something from everyone. It’s more because of who they’ve been told they are and what they’ve accomplished up until now. 

I’m in this boat as well. 

Pretty much everyone has a limited view of what they can be, so of course they’re going to have a limited view of what you can be. 

That’s why it’s so important to read history and biographies. You see how seemingly average men can become great. 

Which brings me to the second point: it’s always over time. 

What You’ve Accomplished Thus Far In Life Isn’t What You’re Stuck With.

This isn’t your capacity, and it doesn’t matter your age!!! 

We live in a culture that wants everything now, but that’s not how it works. You need around a decade of daily hard work in pursuit of a single goal to become anywhere near a master. 

But people flip flop. 

They jump from thing to thing, dream to goal to fad never realizing their potential because they’ve never given themselves enough TIME to realize it. 


Don’t give a rats ass what other people think. If you have a goal, do everything in your power to accomplish it. 

Make new friends. Read every book you can on the topic. Study daily. Work while others play and adventure while others rest. 

Then, persist. 

Figure out what this standard of being is, and be it every day of your life. 

Now, get after it. 

It’s January 1st 2020.

OH BABY, can you smell that?

That fresh new scent of a year. The year of winning, for all of us here. 

Anyways, instead of doing the typical ra ra new year motivation like most “guru’s” I’m here to give you some real value: How to recover from your alcohol infused night. 

Some of you, may have brought in the new year sober. Other’s not so much. I decided to have a few drinks and loosen up to bring in 2020, but I’m kick ass right away. I want you too as well. 

Why lose the first day of the year to a hangover when we have the Ultimate Alcohol Recovery Plan? A little forethought and strategy can allow you to party down on December 31st and still get up on January 1 feeling like a champ.

#1 Rehydrate

Pissing like a racehorse depletes not only your water stores but the electrolytes in them, contributing to the headache and general malaise of a hangover. 

The solution: Hydrate in advance of your binge and keep the water coming as often as you can through the night. 

The next morning, add five grams of Himalayan salt to a liter of natural spring water and drink it all up within two hours of waking. The salt packs trace minerals that help boost electrolyte levels. 

Keep drinking water regularly until you urinate at least two times during the day—this is a sign that you’re restoring the body’s water/electrolyte balance.

#2 Stop Acetaldehyde

Two of the best-known minerals, calcium and magnesium, with two important trace minerals, iodine, and molybdenum, to support total body health.

When your body has to metabolize alcohol, it creates a toxic byproduct called acetaldehyde. 

Molybdenum is an essential mineral that helps the body produce chemicals that assist in regulating acetaldehyde, but its levels are depleted with the dehydration that comes from boozing. 

If you crave foods like burritos, nachos, or hummus when you’re hungover, it’s actually your body’s way of telling you it needs molybdenum.

Reach for a molybdenum supplement, which will give you a concentrated dose without extra calories. 

Take it at the end of your bender before you go to bed, and then again the next morning.

#3 Drink Tea

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a neurotransmitter that slows the brain down. 

It’s critical for relaxation. As alcohol is classified as a depressant drug, it increases your brain’s production of GABA, leading to the chilled out, sometimes disoriented feeling you get from drinking.

The counterpart to GABA is glutamate, another neurotransmitter that excites the brain and promotes alertness. 

After the GABA bath your brain takes from excessive drinking, the body releases a flood of glutamate in an effort to restore balance, and this is the reason you wake up easily, sleep badly, and feel anxious the night of and day after getting wasted.

L-theanine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in green tea, and particularly matcha (a more potent type of green tea). 

It mimics the effects of GABA, and studies have shown that, when combined with caffeine, it can help you stay focused without the jitters you might get from caffeine alone.

Bonus: Take A Shot

Glutathione is a molecule that promotes cellular health, and it plays a big role in fighting acetaldehyde. It’s present in food, but stomach acids largely boil glutathione away, preventing its absorption in the body. 

The most effective way to boost your intake is with an injection straight into the veins. To combat future hangovers, look for an IV vitamin therapy clinic in your area that can hook you up. 

While they can be pricey (treatments can cost several hundred dollars and last under an hour), they often offer all-in-one cocktails of vitamins and minerals that—because they bypass the digestive system—can have you feeling better in minutes.

As a bonus, the extra saline solution is also incredibly rehydrating.
