Another huge 'Thank you!' goes out to Eric Fiorillo over at Motivation & Muscle for inviting me back as a guest on his podcast! Fun as always! And such an honor. Our topic was: Hard Work. No Surrender. Pretty killer, because as I gain momentum in accomplishing the things I intend to accomplish in life, the option to surrender is becoming fainter and has practically disappeared. The more you create and invest in your life, the less likely you are to simply 'give up' to just sit around on the couch wasting your life away. Life is meant to be LIVED. Not surrendered. Not puttered away. Not squandered away under layers of fear, doubt, guilt, laziness, the 'poor me-s,' judging others, shame, or even food coma. Get out and LIVE *life* !! Make it to the end with zero regrets! Pursue your *PASSION*! Set the world on fire with that *LIGHT* inside of you!!
In this particular podcast, Eric graciously gave up some time to speak about the graphics and things I've been creating for him. If there is any type of visual graphic, logo or branding work you'd like for me to create, I would love to discuss it with you! Send me an email, I'll give you my phone number and we can begin communicating! My only issue is fitting projects into the only hour or two a day I get to work after the kiddos go to bed. But, you have my word that I work my buns off and will make your project a priority! And I must note... summer is coming and since I'm a teacher this means a few more hours will open up in my days! Consultations are FREE and I will work on your project until you're completely satisfied! Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!! Thank you, in advance, for giving a small-town girl from Iowa a chance like Eric did! :)

Hard Work. No Surrender- Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Streaming Radio 24/7 Welcomes Wife, Mother, School Teacher, Weightlifter, and Blog Writer Kelly Johnson to the Broadcast.
Eric and Kelly get right into today’s topic called The Harder You Work The Harder To Surrender! One of the most important things to understand is when you have to work very hard on things that are of importance and succeed the bigger goals along the way are going to come to you much easier than not. By this, I mean that you’re going to have to endure some hard times but the fight has been built within you to see the task through and succeed big.Eric and Kelly discuss her training history using the Dead Stop Squatting Power Rack Method. Kelly has performed well with DSS Lifting but has now hit a brick wall with it. This is a very concentrated style of lifting which has to handled differently from the conventional style. She has a goal of a 315 pound DSS and has moved the weight at various partial positions in the power rack. This is where that no surrender attitude comes into play. Eric and Kelly now are working together on her DSS 315-pound maximum goal. We will have a true plan of action from week to week where Kelly will make her goal and transform herself completely.With the hard work and a, no surrender attitude we learn that thinking through things are a prerequisite in our training program but being too analytical or overthinking the situation is problematic. There are times you’re going to grunt, groan and yell to get yourself in that place where you end up fighting your way to victory for that training session. Eric and Kelly talk about Power Rack Training and the goals, the hard work and surely that no surrender. We talk about so many people who criticize this type of lifting and say it has no benefits for strength training. If your moving heavier weights from all different heights in the power rack you’re going to tell me your not making the body and mind stronger? I think it’s time to rethink your position! Eric and Kelly end the podcast with how hard work is the key to strength, health, confidence and the ability to see anything through. This leads us to a much stronger mind which has been built through time to not surrender no matter what. People and negative words will no longer hold any meaning in your life. I love this analogy from Rocky Balboa with this verse from Rocky 2. As Micky said to Rocky. You’re an Italian tank. Run over him go through him! And that phrase really sums it up. The harder you work the smarter you get. No Surrender! Conquer, Conquer and Conquer! Motivation and Muscle Streaming Radio 24/7 Connects Your Brain With Your Brawn. Enjoy!
