Proverbs 23:17-18 NLT #GetWisdomEveryDay
Don’t envy sinners, but always continue to fear the Lord. You will be rewarded for this; your hope will not be disappointed.
Envy is a very discreet sin. Envy will steal your joy and will keep you constantly striving. The solution to fighting envy from creeping into our hearts is the fear of the Lord plus gratefulness. Fearing God is not having a scary type of fear of Him. Fearing God in this context is honoring, respecting, and submitting to God. Gratefulness is something we need to inject into our lives on a daily basis. If you notice you’re envious of someone there is a good chance you haven’t meditated on all the things to be grateful for.
Today’s action ideas are short and direct. Don’t envy. Period. Fear God and prosper. Additionally, start a gratefulness journal. If this is a struggle for you, make it a point and write down in the journal things you are grateful every day.

I’ve hit a little bit of a wall recently with my workouts, but I’m not stopping. It’s normal to go through a funk where you don’t feel your best. But, don’t give up
It’s the fact that you need to keep moving forward even if moving forward means falling on your face
Do something with your pain
Allow your pain to push you to greatness
It doesn’t matter what happens to you, what matters is what you’re gonna do about it
Never lose sight
It’s the person that keeps going that can’t be defeated
It takes time and determination
It takes the ability to accept the fact that you’re not good enough yet
To look at where you’re lacking, to really look and not let it effect your sense of self worth
So you can keep the momentum going
But you have to know that in the beginning, we’re all terrible
You’ve got to do the little things that add up
You have got to just get up
You just need to have the courage to show up every day
Do something that scares you
Do the little things continuously
Until you win
It will be worth it in the end
A new "pearl" is now LIVE: In our episode #37 , I am talking from the solitude of my car - Ilia and I were unable to get together even via Skype - about how to better choose how you spend your time.
Download this episode on iTunes, Google Play Music and Soundcloud - Link in our bio(linkt.ree/ourlittlevenice).
I deliver a heartfelt episode about how to better choose how you spend your time. We all have 24 hours in a day, from the top-performing celebrities to us, time makes no distinction. But it is upon each one of us to decide not only how we spend it, but with whom, as dedicating time to empty relationships will bring you nowhere.
We invite you today to take a mindful look at the ways you are spending your time, the relationships you nurture and how all of this is helping you - or not - move in the direction of your goals. What did you see?
10/21/18. Battalion YMOY Board for 2nd Battalion, NorCal Regiment, 6th Division. The board consisted of the three UCs from each of the units in the battalion, along with Capt. Martinez of the Fresno Police Department. We had seven candidates from two of the three units. Prior to the board, candidates were introduced to the board members, the procedures were explained, and the Young Marines enjoyed a spread of great snacks provided by the Battalion Commander, Mrs. Martinez. Board members reviewed candidates' essays, UC endorsement letters, and info such as PFT scores and DDR and community service hours. The candidates were asked a total of 8 questions. All did well! So who won? We'll reveal that in our next post!

Traveling is fun, but I don’t know of anything that can ruin a diet or gym routine faster. I’m so excited to get out of town this week, and I’ve made sure to prepare myself for the change of pace.
🗺Pack those meals!
🗺Commit to good snacks on the road
🗺Commit to smart choices BEFORE entering the restaurant
🗺Set up a free trial at a local gym 🗺Don’t forget your supplements
🗺Pack gym clothes
🗺Bring a dirty laundry bag!
If you’re traveling make the decision ahead of time to be good. If you don’t have a plan your will power won’t last.
As for today I’m doing arms and shoulders to cover all my bases just in case I actually can’t get a workout in (planning ahead)! Have a great day guys, and don’t let traveling stress you out anymore!💪🏻
A veces todo funciona bien, a veces todo mal... a veces se duerme bien a veces no... a veces alcanzas a comer tranquilamente algo sano, a veces vas comiendo mientras caminas en camino a una reunión... .
Si aceptas que eso SI O SI va a pasar en tu camino a querer mejorar y en alimentarte bien, cuando enfrentes esas situaciones desfavorables, será más fácil superarlas!
Esperen desafíos! Esperen varias instancias en que la ocasión para entrenar o comer algo sano no será la ideal! Pero PREPARATE, tanto en planificación como mentalmente para que cuando se ponga rudo el mar, estés equipado para navegarlo!
Si no requeriría esfuerzo, no me sentiría inspirado en ayudar a las personas que les cuesta! Por que se que es difícil! Pero tal como que hay que entrenar duro para lograr que se adapte un músculo, tu también debes enfrentar esas adversidades y vencer la flojera para que tu también puedas crecer mentalmente, en disciplina y en voluntad!
Buen marteeeeesss 🤘🏼🤘🏼
