… The Paleo Diet Solution by Robb Wolf:

Check out this video and listen to what Wolf, a research biochemist, strength coach and author says about The Paleo Solution Diet:

At PowerbyMe we have adapted to the Paleo lifestyle and would recommend it to everyone. Wolf recommends a 30 day tryout period, which is what we did, and we haven´t looked back since. The first week was very hard, the second week hard – but then it became surprisingly easy.

We have a question…

Have you ever thought about what your obituary is gonna say or what you would like it to say? What do you want to be remembered for?

What we mentally refuse to permit others, we refuse ourselves. What we bless in others, we draw to us.

Are YOU making yourself feel inferior?

What is your greatest fear? Are you afraid you are not good enough? Fear of rejection? Fear of speeking in public? Fear of love?

Most of us fear something. But the most important thing is, not what you fear but what you do about YOUR fear? Do you accept it? Or do you confront it.

According to Brian Tracey fear is learned behavior. Thats a good thing, because that means you can unlearn it. You weren´t born afraid of speeking in front of a large audience, neither were you born feeling that others were more successful than you. In his book “No Excuses” Tracey writes that because fear is learned behavior it can be unlearned through practice, determination and most important action. Lets get real – Fear sucks big time. So why hold on to it? Fear gets in the way of happiness, love and action. Fear is  paralyzing.

So how do you unlearn to fear? You confront it… one step at a time. In stead of accepting that “I´m not good at speeches” or  “I´m not really into commiting myself in relationships, cause I dont like to compromise” –  do the opposite. Act the opposite. Visualize that you already possess the quality you desire and really is afraid of. Act as if you already possess that quality. Or like Nike says: “Just do it” – one step at a time. Practice your wanted quality over and over againg. Affirm yourself that you can you it instead of telling yourself that you can´t. If you visualuze and affirm the wanted quality, your subconscious mind will begin to believe you. In the exact same way, that you have taught you mind fear – because you time after time have told yourself that your can´t or that you are not talented enough. You possess all the power to reverse this learned habbit of fear, but you have to confront it and that action. You will eventually have unlearned your fear when you discipline yourself to take the much needed action against it. And remenber what Eleanor Roosvelt said: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”. So what do you choose? Fear or action?

I will not be outworked, PERIOD!

Will Smith seems to have it all going for him. He is a an enormous successful actor, rapper and film/television producer. On top of that he has what is believed to be in one of Hollywoods strongest marriages. At PowerbyMe we admire his authenticity and his “realness”. He makes it all seem so easy and fun. We wonder what his secret to success is? In an interview with Steve Kroft, Smith revealed his “secret”:

“I’ve never really viewed myself as particularly talented. I’ve viewed myself as slightly above average in talent. And where I excel is ridiculous, sickening, work ethic. You know, while the other guy’s sleeping? I’m working. While the other guy’s eatin’? I’m working. While the other guy’s making love, I mean, I’m making love, too. But I’m working really hard at it”

You read it right! It all boils down to hard work. The fact that Smith makes it look the opposite is a testament of his personality and ability to keep pushing himself to do the best. “I will not be outworked, PERIOD!” Smith said in 2008. How about that for a powerful and dedicated message. So even though it might appear that everything comes easy for the guy in Hollywood who has got all the swagger, its all about working harder that the guy or gal sitting right next to you, and the person sitting next to them ect…you get where we are going!

So do yourself a favor today: Instead of checking you facebook account for the 12th time, do something that gets you one step closer to your main goal.
