What Ever You Do … Do Sweetly

 … Remember, Remember The fifth of November.  The DeLorean and Calvin Klein.  I know not of what you were stricken to call Marty McFly chicken for your fates will surely entwine.  Doc Brown hit his head and for his stitch and suture, made it possible to go Back to the Future. Given the chance you would, Introduce the world to Johnny B. Goode and if you think there’s another reason for this date of the year, then make like a tree and get out of here-

Quick question to start our discussion:  Was Guy Fawkes merely being Reactive or Creative when he decided to hatch the Gunpowder Plot?

Chances are Mr. Fawkes knew what the right thing to do was and even wanted to do what is right … Then he walked into the houses of parliament.

Because he was afraid. Guy Fawkes lacked the courage to support his convictions in a meaningful way.

So how in the world do we draw a parallel between a terrorist and you, average trendy peep of the 21st century?  Simply: We need passionate courage to face the unknown challenges that confront us.  We need vast amounts of courage to let go of our irrational fears that hold us back each and every morning.

We need courage to be ourselves, to be authentic and to take responsibility for our actions.  We need to be courageous in order to overcome our fears of rejection and disapproval from others.  You may have never thought of this before although it takes courage to accept criticism and openly admit to mistakes.

Harvesting courage frees each and every one of us, to find new and better ways of being Authentic … You.

Most of us are held captive, prisoners of our own fears and fear of the unknown.

The Plan-

Link of the day: Time Management

The Workout-

A quick Trail Run/Hike/Swim or Walk to begin the festivities.  Followed by:

Shuttle Runs-

5m Out and Back + 10 Perfect Push Ups

10m Out and Back + 10 HEAVY Goblet Squats

15m Out and Back + 10 HEAVY Hard Style KB Swings

20m Out and Back + 10 Heavy KB Snatch

Mr. Fawkes would have done this for 30 minutes, or 3-4 times through.

Notes:

Remember this day as the day you kicked fear in the FACE!  Guy Fawkes was found guarding some barrels of gun powder around midnight on 4 November 1605, barrels full of fear.  Take care today and ENJOY!!!

    Courage is such an awesome word. People always ask me how I can work overseas or travel alone. The perfect answer would simply be courage. 🙂 Good one my friend.
