It Didn’t Take Years To Change (It Only Took 1 Decision!)

 

Yesterday I looked in the mirror while brushing my teeth and realized that a year of hard work had been paying off!

One year ago, I was just over 250 pounds and while my mindset was a year and a half into making a change, I made the decision that my physical self must improve along with it!

I stopped drinking all soda and sweet tea, began running three times a week, doing push-ups everyday and meditating. In one year, I went from 250 to 188 pounds, began developing muscle and finding focus in my mind through silent focus.

If I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT TOO! My hope for you is a 2018 filled with positive transformation and high achievement! Make Easter 2018 be the moment you change your life!

Changes Are Coming!

With the addition of my speaking events a year ago I am planning an overhaul of 1 Imaginary Fox that will go from the ground up, including the name!!! I’m looking forward to serving the young and old and need a site that provides both!! under-construction-sign_1021-51

Never ‘Dull’!

Stopping off at the post office today, I was waiting on by the always polite clerk who has gotten so used to my being there of the last year that it’s not even funny and we began discussing the weather. The clerk began to tell me about how they had used the nice day yesterday to wash their car because they don’t clean it when the weather is cooler. We had a good laugh about that and then the clerk said something that caught my attention in another way.

“As you can see I have a pretty dull life,” they said.

I encouraged that it surly was not dull but the clerk insisted it was as we parted ways. I left the post office and began thinking about how submitting to a ‘dull’ life is just not what life is all about! Life is truly meant to be lived to the fullest and beyond submission to a false idea that life is just ‘ok’ or ‘so-so’.

I was there! I was over weight (by 50 pounds), I blamed others, I just rolled with everything that was handed to me instead of taking it head on. I felt that I had a ‘dull’ life and fell into the trap of that was just how it was and I had been dealt that hand. How wrong I was!

This month alone I hired a life coach to help guide me to the next level of my writing and speaking career. His name is RM Dozier and upon meeting him a year ago, I know this guy is going to push me and that is what I desire. I’m not afraid to seek help for my goals and RM is just the man to help me fine tune my focus! We have a conference call coming up next week and I am all out ready for it!

I was also asked if I might give the keynote speech for my old high school’s career day and I said I would be humbled to! I’m just waiting for a reply and it will be off to the races for speech writing and run through to polish it.

In one month, I will be traveling to northern Indiana and presenting two presentations at Canterbury School and am ready to crush it with excitement and fun! I have also been confirmed for a elementary school visit in central Illinois in April and one in Southern Illinois in May. Add in a pre-graduation ceremony speech before the graduating class of my local high school and the truth is I have anything but a ‘dull’ life!

No matter what it is, your life is your life! If you find it becoming a bit ‘dull’ or lackluster, let’s jump on giving it a polish, you’ll feel so good once you’ve begun!
