Welcome to another edition of Rock My World Wednesday! Since it’s a holiday week, I’m going to go the traditional route and theme this week’s edition for Thanksgiving. Yeah, I’m going to be that guy.

Back for another week of Rock My World Wednesday! Sorry I’ve been so quiet with my posting this past week; I’ve been in the lab working on a bunch of stuff behind the scenes, so get ready for some crazy stuff in the near future.

That being said, I have had some time to be impressed with some stuff this week. Without further adieu, let’s get to the fun!

One of the coolest things about the internet is the ability for information and ideas to travel and get into the hands of people that want them. As such, one of the things I’ve been wanting to do lately with this blog is to have a weekly list of off-the-cuff thoughts and things that I’m getting into lately.

So I was bumping around Facebook yesterday and one of my friends posted up a picture and link to The Bacon Explosion. Now, as a good, red-blooded American male, there are a couple of things that I hold sacred:

1. Bacon.

2. Doing things with over-the-top dominance.

This is pretty much the pinnacle of both.

No matter what a stripper tells you, there’s NO sex in the champagne room.

As many very disappointed young men will tell you, Chris Rock’s words are pure, golden truth. I, of course, couldn’t tell you from experience or anything like that. I’ve only heard things… from people… and stuff.

Moving on… Another sad truth is that the fitness and supplement industry is very similar to the adult “recreational” industry. Both are full of lots of pretty and shiny things, airbrushing, augmentation, and false promises. And hell, both have midgets.

And remember, in both cases, despite what a stripper (fitness “expert”/supplement salesman) tells you, there’s no sex (results) in the Champagne Room.

Today I’m going to give you a simple and effective tool that you can use to increase your productivity, improve your mood, stop procrastination, crush confusion, and bring you closer to your goals. I adapted this idea from one of Paul Reddick’s tips and ran with it to create my own success object. I call it a “Vision Board”. I spoke a bit about creating a vision board briefly in my post 5 Ways to Kick Ass Every Day, and I received some emails that prompted me to go into more detail, so here you go.

Teddy R. No stranger to kicking ass.

In the interest of kicking some ass (remember, I just got re-educated in the field), I thought I’d share some things that I’ve been doing daily with (nearly) religious adherence that have contributed to some asskicking.

None of these things take long, and they’re each going to do what you need to do: Put you one step further ahead.

Man, let me tell you what. I just got back from a life-changing weekend on the Jersey Shore. No, I didn’t party with Snookie, as life-changing as that might have been. Instead I was at an ocean-front resort locked in a conference room for two days with about 30 of the best veteran and up-and-coming fitness professionals in the business. We were getting some knowledge bombs dropped on us from Paul Reddick and Zach Even-esh, learning about lifestyle design, business, and in general how to kick tail at what was appropriately titled the “How To Kick Ass” seminar (HTKA).

Now, most of what we went over is off-limits to share. This was a no-recording, closed-door event and as they say “What happens on the Shore, stays on the Shore”. But I did make some observations that will help you guys take your game to the next level and crush it. I want to share those with you.

“Man, he’s so lucky that he was born rich”

“Oh, well, you have a fast metabolism so you don’t have to worry about getting fat”

“That guy doesn’t deserve her (but I do)!”

Do any of those sentences sound familiar? I bet you hear them every day or maybe you even say them yourself. Envy, jealousy, begrudging, resentful, whatever you call it, it’s the same thing: Bullshit.

When it comes to personal development and being the best you can be there’s a lot of “feel-good” hippy crap that gets thrown around.  People talk about wonderful ideals and theories but rarely do the nuts and bolts of the process get addressed. It’s a lot easier to talk about the what when you don’t have to talk about the how, which is what I’m going to do on this site.  One of the topics that comes up a lot in the world of personal development is the idea of “reinventing yourself”.  A lot of guys simply aren’t happy with who they are and how their life is going.  If that wasn’t true then we wouldn’t have a multi-billion dollar self-help industry and an even larger pharmaceutical anti-depressant and anti-anxiety industry.
