Burt Watson, “Baby Sitter to The Stars”
Personal Rapport, is what life is all about
by: Burt Watson, “BabySitter 2 The Stars”
From movie productions, musical plays, 2008 Billboard Awards, major television networks (HBO, Showtime, ESPN), major boxing events and a host of historical sports legends. That eventually lead to my 14 year career in MMA and the UFC. Working and teaching young athletes who make it to the top of their craft is an easy thing to do when you live by a creed that you teach.
I started my professional career in sports and entertainment, at a time I least expected it and was probably least prepared.
The biggest achievement is getting to that level, the hardest thing is staying there. That is why being the BEST you can be has to be BETTER than everyone else. The finish is not the end of the goal.

I remember growing up in Michigan like it was yesterday even though it was over 15 years ago. When I was a kid I loved to watch movies with lots of action, movies with Steven Seagal or Jean Claude Van Damme were some of my all-time favorites. Films like “Kickboxer” or “Hard to kill” I would watch over and over, sometimes daily. After a little while I started to notice a pattern with these movies. The main characters were always involved in some type of martial art (form of self defense). For example, “kick boxer,” Jean Claude Van Damme was a kickboxer competing against the best around. In “hard to kill,” Steven Segal used Aikido to take out the bad guy. After watching countless movies like these I decided to look into martial arts. Continue reading

Dealing with Disappointment
by: Robert Kiyosaki
Successful people face and learn from disappointment
Myles recently asked me to write a guest blog for his site and I was more than happy to. You may know of me from my book Rich Dad Poor Dad that was on the New York Times personal-finance bestseller list for nearly seven years.
I had a “rich dad” who was my friend’s father, an entrepreneur, an investor, and my mentor growing up. I also had my “poor dad” who was the superintendent of education in Hawaii and my biological father. I learned a lot from both men but, in the end, I followed my rich dad’s advice. I love real estate investing (not that flipping crap) and business.

Who is your Teacher?
Nowadays with technology changing and getting more and more advanced we are bombarded daily with people selling us all kinds of different stuff. Everything from food to cars and more specifically EDUCATION. It’s so easy nowadays for anyone to say they can teach you XYZ, when in reality they are in no position to because they are not qualified enough. In my eyes the main things I look for in a teacher/coach to be qualified to teach me anything is: Continue reading

Take Responsibility for your training
by: Myles Jury
Over the years I’ve heard a bunch of reasons why people don’t work out. These reasons range from “not having enough time” to “I’m allergic to working out,” with each one ending up with the same results = THE PERSON DOESN’T WORK OUT. I realize that there will be emergencies and reasons come up in life as to why you can’t make your planned work out session but if it comes a consistent thing then it may be because you don’t take RESPONSIBILITY for your training. Taking “responsibility” for your training is the first step towards reaching any fitness goals you may have. Just like you learn to walk before you run, it is equally important to make sure you have committed to yourself that, You and You alone, are responsible to make it to any weekly work outs planned or scheduled. I like to think of “responsibility” as “responding with ability.” For example, lets look at a situation. You are supposed to run 30 minutes at night, but your friend asks if you want to go see a movie. So you “respond with ability” by saying, sorry I have a run I need to get in, so I will not be able to make it. You alone, have the control to make that choice of running and moving closer to your fitness goals, that is what responsibility is all about! Let me share with you some benefits you will have when you start taking “responsibility” for your training: Continue reading
GAINING That Edge
by: Nate Yoho
Having been in the fitness industry for the past seven years, I’ve heard my fair share of, “I’ve lost my motivation. How do I get it back?” Unfortunately the answer is far more complex than any motivational cliché, any half naked, carb depleted fitness model in a magazine, or the countless “motivational” memes from that Facebook friend. Motivation will come and go but here are 4 tips to keep in mind so you can maintain that driving force.
We are creatures of habit that must adapt to change. Sometimes our goals are set too high and are unachievable. Other times goals are set too low in an attempt to avoid failure. Be able to evaluate your progress and reset your goals so they are reasonable. Successful people know that change is inevitable and they must adapt accordingly. If you underestimate or overestimate your benchmarks have the willingness to reassess your goals taking into consideration your abilities. Continue reading
2+ is better than one. The importance of having a Team
by: Myles Jury
Introduction: Over the past couple years I have had countless people ask me, “If you could give one piece of advice to upcoming fighters who want to compete in the UFC and be successful, what would it be?” After seven fights in the UFC and over thirteen years in the sport of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), I always tell them, “get a good team and surround yourself with people who will help you reach your true potential.” A team holds you accountable for your daily actions, provides knowledge, guidance and supports you in helping achieve personal goals. These people on your team should have your best interest at heart. They need to bring something to the table in terms of adding value to your career, while you will strive to do the same. Having a team mindset of “everyone is here to help each other get better,” is usually a recipe for success!
