Sink or Swim....... Will he reach his goal of getting to the other side?
As a father and leader, its my duty to try and get the best out of my sons and those I lead in my role. Lots of times I have faced sink or swim situations in my career and have seen many others in the same situation.
I have always tried to swim. I have a lifelong fear of drowning, and know many adults who cant swim due to this fear. Everytime I go to a pool, I see how long I can hold my breath to confront the fear head on.
As a father and leader its my responsibility to give my boys and my staff all the life skills they need and confidence to overcome their fears. It's a simple case of giving them the tools to complete the job.
The little boy is 6 and never had swimming lessons, his name is Mason and he is my son. Last year on holiday he said "Dad can I try and swim without armbands"? We did a few short distances over 3 days to build his confidence. On the last day he set himself a goal of reaching the other side without help. As you now know, mission accomplished✊
To summarise, don't hold others back due to your own fears, take calculated risks, encourage, and most importantly give people the support and tools to finish the job.
📣Here's the deal!📣
You guys have done an AMAZING job reading and raising 💰 for our school! We hope you're enjoying choosing prizes from the #owlstore for your hard work!
The #whooosreading#readathon has just 2 days remaining and we have one last #INCENTIVE for you, to help reach our goal of $25,000.
For EVERY new sponsor from now until midnight on Sunday, roadrunners will receive $25 EXTRA🦉 #owlbucks to spend in the #owlstore next week.
And, that's in addition to "regular" #owlbucks earned!
All minutes and sponsors must be recorded by midnight on Sunday, 2/24.
Over 400 of our students don't have a sponsor, yet! If every non-sponsored student receives $12 this weekend, we can reach our goal! .
Last chance to #finishstrong 💪. Remember we keep 90% of ALL funds raised!
We are winding down the 6 weeks in Transform 20. Each workout has been a solid 20 min of nonstop. Today’s final workout was a combination of all 6 weeks and a full 60 minutes, that’s an entire hour of Shaun T and all of his glorious goodness and constant pushing us to go further.
I went into today’s workout thinking eh I’ll just do what I can and if I don’t finish no biggie; I’ll at least do 20 minutes and be good to go... nope I freaking finished the ENTIRE hour!! I was exhausted and a hot sweaty mess but I did it start to finish!
Then tonight I looked at my watch... I nailed the Day!! Seriously, don’t doubt yourself people, don’t sell yourself short, say yes to yourself and do something out of your normal and out of your comfort zone, push yourself and give it your all!! Round two starts Monday, do this with me!! #sayyestoyourself#Ididit#finishstrong
Call me obsessed, 🤷🏽♂️🤷🏽♂️🤷🏽♂️ but I love living downtown. You look at life different when you work hard to get where you’re going. While others are quitting, you keep fighting the good fight. #fighthard#finishstrong

💥EPISODE 13 🗣🎙💥
On this episode, I wanted to bring in a long time friend of mine, @randall_pich . Randall is the CEO @live_fit_apparel, @topthreads and is involved with a few other business ventures that he mentions on this episode. Randall is a Long Beach native and we became friends back in 2008 in our days of personal training at Bally Total Fitness. I've been lucky enough to not only befriend Randall, but also see him hussle and grow his empire to what it is today. We had a lot of fun recapping his upbringing, his involvemnt in the fitness industry, how he got to where he is today with LVFT, and just having some fun conversation. On top of that, Randall shares some serious life advice for entrepenurs and anyone that just needs some inspirations. Really do hope you guys enjoy it!
Thanks to @prephoopsmd for a great write up on our game this week against @washingtonpost #9 ranked National Christian Academy. We know this remarkable season, going 20-5 so far after finishing 5-18 last year, has also been possible because our two juniors believed in the program and continue to show great leadership and commitment. We are excited to be starting post-season play Sunday in the ISL tournament and the @dcsaasports tourney starting Wednesday! #finishstrong
