The Ease of Success. Making Things Easy.



There are plenty of people who have defined what it takes to create or reach success…..and each of them have been exactly right.  Heck, I’ve even posted about my man Bob Dylan’s quote which is probably my personal favorite.

Bob Dylan Success QuoteBut something hit me recently, and made me realize that achieving success is even better (aka more successful) if you get there without bashing yourself up in the process.

Yes, nothing worthwhile is ever easy and you’re going to have to bust your butt, take chances, and take a few hits along the way.  But by easing the success process, you’ll be in much better shape to enjoy it once you arrive.

We all have different equations for what it will take to deem ourselves a success.  That’s what makes our world (and people) so freaking cool.  But whatever it is, you’ll know you’re there when you arrive.  Sure there may be days where you take an unscheduled hiatus from success, but once you’ve been there it is so much easier to find your way back.

So let me tell you this:  Success is easy.  Easing your way there is better than beating yourself up.  Once you arrive…..Life becomes easier.  It’s a win-win-win all the way around, and an upward spiral that just keeps on spinning.

Go after your definition of success.  #MakeitHappen.

    Over the 35 years of working for someone or being in business I had many success’s and some failures, but when I retired I felt pretty good about myself. I achieved more then I expected all due to hard work and listening to other successful people.

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.
