Why Are You Fat? Perhaps its Time to Find Your Greatness

Nike’s Find Your Greatness Campaign

Earlier today I was listening to the Tony Robbins Personal Power audio while on my run and he was talking a lot about putting the power to do anything in your own hands.

It’s all about creating a ritual, following through with it and getting momentum because of your consistent actions.

Nike has a pretty awesome marketing campaign running right now that really has been hitting home with a lot of people and I wanted to share it with you.


This campaign is called the “Find your greatness” campaign.

Find Your Greatness

Check the comments section under the video:

This kid is a serious champion. He’s getting out there and busting his butt so that he can improve himself.

That’s more than a lot of people can say. Even people who have no reason that’s holding them back from their own greatness.

I mean look at this kid. He lives in London, Ohio and is out there running all by himself so that he can improve himself. If that’s not motivational to you and gets you in the mood to get off your butt and make a change in your life, I don’t know what will.

Nike’s always been one of my favorite companies because of their motto “Just Do It” and this signifies that in all the right ways.

Let nothing hold you back. Be your own champion and…

Find Your Greatness.

How a Former Language Educator Can Make You Sound Like a Local

Benefit of Learning a Second Language

If you’ve ever been watching a movie and seen one of your favorite American actors speaking a foreign language as if he or she has been speaking it their whole lives, you may feel like you’ve seen a miracle happen.

The truth however, is that it is simply a way of using your brain in a way that you aren’t used to. It’s the same as when you first learn how to do anything else.

Until you learn a secret to cut your time in half, you’re going to struggle with doing anything.

For example, in July of 2012 I spent a little over a week in Costa Rica.

It was one of my goals or missions to learn how to surf while I was on this trip.

Holla, learned how!!

I’ve heard from a lot of people who have tried to learn how to surf that it’s something that is extremely difficult.

Personally, I don’t like listening when people tell me something is hard. I laugh a lot of the time when people tell me things are difficult.

While I didn’t get up and ride the first 2 waves I hopped onto ( I tipped the board forward too much), the third time I was up and riding like I’d always done it.

What was the secret?

Honestly, I’d watched some videos on YouTube and asked questions to experts.

I learned the little shortcuts that would cut the learning curve down for me.

The same is true with anything you do, you find the shortcuts and you save yourself a LOT of time.

The National Security Agency and other important government organizations have purchased this rapid language learning method: the Pimsleur Approach, which has proved to be the fastest way tolearn a new language.

The benefits of learning a second language

Your brain is already wired to learn a language in 10 days. You just need to activate it.

In today’s global society, learning a foreign language is crucial, whether you need it for work or pleasure. With the right tools and training, you’ll be able to connect with new friends and business acquaintances more effectively thanks to your new ability to speak, listen, learn and improvise in another language. And it is much simpler than people think.

Learning a second language


What’s fascinating about learning languages is that native-speakers typically use only about 2,500 distinct words and phrases on a daily basis.

A guy by the name of Dr Paul Pimsleur created the Pimsleur Approach, he spent his lifetime studying these language building blocks. By focusing specific languages on learning those 2,500 words, you can cut your learning time down by months. Speaking to the locals and communicating isn’t about how many words you know, but rather which words you can use.

The Pimsleur Approach effortlessly locks new language material into your brain after only one listen. And it only takes one 30-minute lesson a day.

The Pimsleur Approach to learning a second language

The entire Pimsleur Approach is what language learning should be: quick, fun, and easy! You’ll absorb your new language effortlessly without any reading, writing, or computer use. The Pimsleur Approach has a 100-percent guarantee: Speak in 10 days or you don’t pay.

Who is Dr. Pimsleur?

Dr. Pimsleur was a language educator for more than 20 years. He noticed that children have an amazing ability to learn new languages quickly. He spent his life developing this course to let you, as an adult, learn a new language as easily as a child would. You might not realize it, but you’ve already learned one language using the Pimsleur Approach. Your first language.

Learning a new language can be quick, easy and affordable with the breakthrough Pimsleur Approach audio training.
