How I Beat King Kong…And You Can Too!

How I Beat King Kong…And You Can Too!

One of my favorite hobbies is road cycling. I like it so much that I get up at 4:30 every morning to go and put myself through pain and suffering. One of the routes we ride takes us up a hill that we affectionately call “King Kong.” It isn’t very long but it is pretty steep. You have to shift into a pretty easy gear to get to the top without killing yourself.

When I first started riding back in high school, “King Kong” was my nemesis. I could make it to the top but I always got passed by all of the other riders. Even as I got better I was consistently getting left behind by riders who I knew were not as strong as I was.…

The One Meal You Absolutely Can’t Miss

The One Meal You Absolutely Can’t Miss

For years scientists and health gurus have told us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Why is that? It is because study after study shows us the negative effects of skipping breakfast or eating a non-healthy breakfast. Starting your day with proteins, like eggs and bacon, leads to better brain function, attentiveness, and more energy. Starting the day with refined sugars and other carbohydrates, like donuts or bagels, can lead to energy depletion and mental miscues.

Wake Up

Last night someone asked me why I started Successify! I have always had different answers to this question but none of them ever seemed to describe why I really started it or what it’s purpose is.

As I thought more about it on the drive home, these words came to mind:

“I look out and see a world full of promise and opportunity…and it is waiting.

I look around and see people full of promise and potential…but they are sleeping.”

And I realized that it was a great way to describe what I’m trying to do. I feel like we live in an amazing world where it has been proven time and time again that ANYBODY can rise up and create a fabulous and successful life.…

15 Tips for Waking Up Early

15 Tips for Waking Up Early

It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom.
– Aristotle

Let me first start by saying that waking up early has been a great benefit in my life. I wake up at 4:30am almost every day! (Sometimes I sleep in until 6:00)

I love waking up early because it is the time of the day when no one else is awake or demands my attention. It is my time to do whatever I want. I can work out, read, plan out my day, or even just check my e-mail. I get to do these things before the day officially begins. Being able to maximize my free time doing things has made all the difference to my quality of life.…
