Nothing else really to say.... get to work!!
What you often don’t want to do is EXACTLY what you must do. That change in diet, a challenging conversation at work or with a loved one, starting that business or trying that new fitness goal. What challenges us l, changes us!! Many of us succumb to the heard of average by avoiding mild risk, challenge, and the associated discomfort!! Fear of discomfort, pain, failure or a reality that hasn’t been explored stops us in our tracks ?! We talk ourselves out of “it” before we ever give “it” a chance!!! Know that failure is your best teacher and push beyond those self generated subconscious fears... get uncomfortable... learn... evolve ... grow ... change ... ADAPT!!!
Bottom line is if you want it... you have to work for it ... and trust me it’s much more rewarding that way!! Fitness, your health, and how you tend to your body should NOT be a chore or burden ... but a privilege and a blessing... mindset is everything here. That sweat, pain and discomfort is just PROGRESS in hiding!! You are a miracle of life ... the very fact you are breathing and walking around makes you one damn lucky individual!! You have the fortune of breathing that air and experiencing all that life has to offer!! Your body is the vessel that allows you to experience it ... so taking care of that vessel should be a PRIORITY!!
Do you do it for the gram? Found this realllly cool long old wooden dock in 🏝Costa Maya 🇲🇽 and decided to take a pic with our new badass socks 🧦 from @happysocks !!! As you can imagine the beach goers gave us a few looks when we slid on these marvelous gems 🧦 in the sweltering mexico heat to grab this capture 📸!! #doitforthegram !! Had a blast doing it... and our little sock-dock-shot could have had something to do with the free open bar 🍹 at the resort 💁🏼♂️💁🏼♀️🍹🏝😋!! I (Derek) have a bit of a thing for creative socks! Thank you @happysocks for these puppies, we wore them proudly!!
Missing our beloved Savannah !! Heading back to see you soon! Have you been to Savannah ?
Some of us sleep in ... and some of us get up to capture the moments #sunrise ! Heading into 2019 are you going to “stay in bed” with your dreams ... or are you going to “get up” and chase them??

We are excited to share with you all 🏖 Live Extraordinary Travel 🌎 ! We are now travel agents providing the ability to book insane travel deals for our followers ❤️❤️ .... ALSO 🙌🏼📣 incentivized travel collaboration deals with all of our influencer friends... (earn dollars booking your followers) !! 🔻 Soon our website will be loaded with booking options as well as options for influencers to book their followers easily and be compensated without doing hard work!! 🔻 We thought travel agencies were dead and the best deals were found online... we were WRONG ❌!! We have access to rates and deals that only agents see!! 🔻 We thought travel agents charged fees to book, making the travel more expensive.... ❌ WRONG again!!! The travel most certainly isn’t more, in fact it’s quite often LESS!! 🔻 The biggest reason anyone would use an agent like us is we ADVOCATE for the client!! Less expensive and someone does all the hard work... and is there to answer questions ... why wouldn’t you use us !!!! 🔻 IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO TRAVEL anywhere, give us a shot at doing the work and getting you the best rate..... we know travel !! 🔻 If you are a TRAVEL INFLUENCER and wish to leverage your community, and what you do best ... TRAVEL... and are interested in making money off this (at no cost up the client).... shoot us a DM, or leave us a message in the comments on how to get started !!

Meet the “IRONCOWBOY” James Lawrence!! If you want to hear the story of one of the most amazing feats of mental and physical endurance ... you MUST hear the story of the “Iron Cowboy 🤠!” James is a multiple Guinness Book record holder, most notably know for successfully completing 50 IRON distance TRIATHLONS in 50 consecutive days in 50 different states !! For those who may not know what an Ironman Distance Triathlon is... it’s a 2.4 Mike Swim - 112 miles on a bike and a 26.2 mile marathon run.... in one day. Doing ONE is life changing and an amazing accomplishment ... he did 50 in a row ... one in every state. I had the distinct pleasure of having James on the Adapt You podcast ! Afterwards Amy, James and his incredible friend and I all killed some Utah cooking at our host resort the @zermattutah ! Our podcasts will be released middle of October, stay tuned for details. If you get a chance you MUST watch his documentary on Amazon Prime ... it’s free... and will inspire you to become the best version of yourself! Thanks again James, you are a true inspiration !
Meet professional boxer and inspirer LaVonte “The World Class Gentleman” Early!!
