Be Great: Life
"Life is busy. It can feel impossible to move toward your dreams. If you have a full-time job and kids, it’s even harder. How do you move forward? If you don’t purposefully carve time out every day to progress and improve — without question, your time will get lost in the vacuum of our increasingly crowded lives."
This pairs well with the post How to Plan Your Day for Ultimate Success.
"Today 150,000 people will die. But how do all these people die? Unsurprisingly, where you were born plays a major role in just how you shuffle off the mortal coil (or are dragged off of it)."

"It is not a secret anymore that bodyweight training is suitable for building muscle. People all over the internet proved this over and over, but still there is some sort of confusion out there. Why do some people gain muscle mass easily with bodyweight training and others don’t?"
*More about Wim Hofs method of breathing here.

"To become “successful,” you have to say “yes” to a lot of experiments. To learn what you’re best at, or what you’re most passionate about, you have to throw a lot against the wall. Once your life shifts from pitching outbound to defending against inbound, however, you have to ruthlessly say “no” as your default. Instead of throwing spears, you’re holding the shield."

"My neck, upper back, and shoulder pain got so bad I suffered from insomnia for almost 2 years. No matter what I did, the neck pain always seemed to find me. I was sitting down all day at work hunched over a computer. I tried improving my posture. But it didn’t work."
