Monday Motivation: Change the game; Don’t let the game change you

Hope you’re doing great.

I’m stuck in Syracuse as the weather in connecting airports was crappy and I couldn’t fly out. Just means I get to write and read more, then fly out in the a.m.

I was out and about this week visiting Krebsi to work on projects as well as visiting Cressey Performance, training there, and hanging out with the Cresseys. Our last stop was Boston for the Travis Jones seminar and meeting to finalize something that can be only described as……epic (imagine the dramatic pause before I said it).

Monday Motivation: I have to ask you this question (the Pack in NY and Boston)

Hope you’re doing great.

I’m kind of pulling an all nighter here as I’m staying with Krebsi in Utica. Not optimal but sometimes you have to do what you have to do and there was a lot of writing and projects to get done and “shipped” as Seth Godin likes to say.

I will keep this short but hopefully eye opening.

So let’s start with that question…

How much massive good will and content are you putting out there and showing that you are not only the expert but unique in what you do?

Stop Doing This Now!

There is no need for a co-signer when it comes to your success.

The fact of the matter is NOBODY OWES YOU ANYTHING. You have to be more invested in your dream than anyone else. The only person that owes you anything is YOU.

It doesn’t take money to become successful…it takes 2 things:

1. Energy
2. Effort

Luka’s Guide To Getting Your S*#t Together

Hope you’re doing good.

I’ve been on fire with work and pretty much just saying yes to every project then hustling to get it done (I wouldn’t do this all the time but when you’re trying to get shit done and get ahead with light speed this method works).

With the work I’ve also been reading 2-3 books a week as it tends to be my wooosa time for a couple of hours a day.

Shoulder issues or brain issues?

Hope you’re doing great.

Just got up to do a conditioning session with Krebs before I take him to the airport.

It was another weekend of some serious knowledge bombs as Vigor Ground hosted Eric Cressey for a one day shoulder seminar. We had 130 strength coaches, trainer and physical therapists and sold it out even faster than we anticipated.

Eric truly is the best at what he does and we covered shoulder anatomy, assessments, correctives, and programming. A lot of information from 9 to 5 but everyone took a ton from it and will be going back to their clients with information they can help them feel, move, and perform better.

Truth? You can’t handle the truth!!

Hope you’re doing great.

I’m at Charlotte airport early as I’m leaving to go back to Seattle after being at the Training for Warriors Summit where I spent a bunch of time with Martin Rooney and the TFW Familia.

Martin asked me to speak on charity events in front of 60 TFW business owners and it was not only an honor but a pleasure to be able to help people give more to the community while growing their business.

The weekend was extremely inspiring and I challenged everyone to get on board with a project that will change how we go about helping the community as fitness professionals. Stay tuned for a hurricane of giving in 2014.

Are you Wrestling or Dancing?!

As Fit Pros we wear many hats. We are coach, trainer, therapist, support, marketer, salesman, and sometimes cleaning crew, admin, book keeper…and, and, and.

Sometimes because of this overwhelming list of tasks, we forget what focus is the most important…Getting our clients to change, AKA getting them results.

The question is, are you wrestling with clients or dancing with them? Obviously this isn’t a literal question…otherwise you have bigger problems on your hands. Disclaimer: Physically Wrestling with clients isn’t an acceptable behavior unless you run a BJJ/MMA academy…just saying!

Monday Motivation: Tough Love

“Most people reach success much later in life, because they didn’t realize what was MOST IMPORTANT sooner.”

I think that quote can be applied to so many different facets of life, success, and business.

  • Financial Success
  • Success in our relationships
  • Success in achieving happiness
  • Success in moving past negative experiences
  • Business Success


Our focus dictates where we will go in life.

If you allow life to push and pull you like currents in a river then you are living reactively. You are giving up your power. You are allowing external factors to control your life direction.

That is some scary shit right there.

Most people gravitate toward living reactively so they don’t have to accept the blame or responsibility for the lack of success or happiness in it. It’s easy to point the finger and blame everything else but yourself for what’s lacking in life, or negative experiences.

It’s a poisonous mindset that I implore you to eradicate immediately.

I know you have heard the saying “Actions speak louder than words.” The same goes for your focus. You can say what your purpose is, or what you are going to do. But until you actually DO IT, it doesn’t matter. How often are you “Letting yourself off the hook?”

Ultimately we have to move your focus from what you want right now, to what you truly want.

Take a few minutes and write out your true passion, purpose, and desires for your life. Hell, even send them to me so I can hold you accountable.

My Business Focus and Purpose:


My Relationship Focus:


My personal Financial focus:


My life focus and purpose:


I want you to live your purpose. I want you to be happy and fulfilled by your life.

Success is earned, it doesn’t come easy, but when you achieve it, you will know that you deserved it. It has ZERO to do with luck. So you have to make your own luck by working your ass off toward what you truly want.

It’s time for you to focus on what’s most important NOW, before its too late.

If you aren’t where you want to be then you have to be willing to take the required actions. You have to be willing to invest in success.

Regret is a terrible feeling that I would hate for you to experience. You deserve better, and you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to reach your full potential.

Stop bullshitting yourself. If your business sucks then do something about it. If your life sucks then fucking do something about it.

There are no handouts in this life. I’m not here to tell you what you want to hear. I’m your coach, so I’m going to tell you what YOU NEED to hear.

Rise to the challenge and reap the rewards of hard work.

Memento Mori,

P.S. If you need help with a kick-start, head over to so we can take the first step toward your greatness in your life and business. No Regrets!
