You guys get a break from Way of the Warlord this well. We will pick back up this weekend.
We are on the last few weeks of winter and that means spring and summer will be here before you know it. What plans do you guys have for the good weather this year? One for me is getting in prime shape for the beach. Another is a camping trip with the family in June. Post what you’re planning to do in the warm months this year? Have a good weekend, and if you’re like a good percentage of Americans who had 1 Irish ancestor 6 generations ago, Sláinte!!
No man can be a master at everything in the world. Even things you’re good at can suffer in minor areas. Naturally, people want to do things they are good at, an oftentimes hide their weak points. This applies in many areas of your life. Recently I’ve been focusing on weak points in my physique that lag behind other areas. I see these parts that need to be fixed, and I hate them. I realized in order to change it, I have to make it happen through hard work, but initially confronting them is often the hardest part. Today, I’ll go over how I have been confronting weaknesses in all areas of my life, and the change it can bring to anyone looking to improve.

Relax, AKC hasn’t gone down the political route, and we never will. I borrowed that term because it occurred to me this weekend that as I get older, friends you can’t relate to anymore tend to fade away. Not only that, but I’m a firm believer of surrounding yourself with people who will motivate you instead of bring you down. Today I’ll go over my experience on this matter and what I did in my owin life.

Much of my reading these days has been about bodybuilding. As you all know, I’m on the Team WB Fitness program that is, you guessed it, a bodybuilding program. When I am doing something, I want to know all about it, and research it and learn all there is to know on a the subject. Naturally, I have been reading Arnold Schwarzenegger’s books. If you want advice, I say go to the best. In his book “The Education of a Bodybuilder”, Arnold explains a method he used inside and outside the gym to reach success. Today I’ll explain what they are, and how I’ve been using this method in my own life to succeed.

This is my 100th post on AKC so I wanted to write something a bit different than I typically do. The title of this article is a piece of wisdom I learned from my father. He didn’t teach me too much growing up due to my parents being separated and him having his own interests in mind, but as a teen I worked for him doing masonry work. These years were the only time we really had time to be around each other and I learned a few things about life. Today, I’ll recall my favorite saying and mindset I learned from my dad and what it actually means to me.

We promote the go get it, kill it in every aspect of life attitude around here. We’re committed to being the best fathers, leaders, husbands and also being fit physically, mentally and socially. I’ve noticed at times that we can get wrapped up in this, after all its who we are, and there are times that you have to take a step back, laugh at life, and just run on auto pilot for a bit. Today I’ll speak about taking that needed time to recuperate and what you can do to recharge when you’ve been hustling your ass off. Continue reading “Remembering To Be Human”
Over the weekend my son got upset over a game he was playing. I decided that he had enough and shut it down. I could see tears welling up in his eyes. He’s 10 years old and I remember that at that age crying was not an option. I told him “stop crying, you’re too old for that.” in an assertive but not overly loud tone. He looked at me with that look that I think most boys give their fathers when they realize that I’m not going to coddle or comfort him. Its a look of respect, fear, and maybe even a slight bit of anger. The whole interaction got me thinking about how and when to show your children that you aren’t the one they come crying to for comfort over every little thing. Today, I’ll share my experiences and thoughts on the matter.
