5 Seconds to Greatness


5 seconds to greatnessWant to know a little secret to creating greatness in your life?  Initiate, don’t Hesitate.

How many times do you find yourself all psyched up and motivated from something you’ve read or heard….but then let the moment pass you by?  You’re not alone, because this is something that happens all the time.  But why?

It may sound extreme, but I’ve heard that if you don’t initially act on something within 5 seconds then odds are you’ll never do anything about it.  Five Seconds…..not much time.  But in those 5 seconds you can achieve Greatness.

Do me a favor….actually, do me two favors.  The next time you get excited about something, act immediately.  Secondly, don’t go around saying things like, “I’d sure like to…. or “One day I’m going to…..”  Don’t talk about it, Do It.

1Love.  Enjoy Your Ride.

Make It Happen.

    This idea can be a life changer for people and it does not need to be just about the big decisions. Everything you do can be streamlined by being decisive. People are always wondering how some folks manage to have a lot of great things going on at one time, when their own lives seem so overwhelming. A lot of times I think that simply comes done to not making the same decisions over and over again. Make it, move on, don’t re-live it.

      Nicely said, Eric. I wrote another post once using a great quote from Mae West….He who hesitates is a damn fool. She knew what it was all about.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
