July 11 - Choose The Type Of Pain You Want

There are 2 types of pain - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.

Or something like that. I think Jim Rohn, said that and the Navy Seals adopted it for there use.

This is what’s been on my mind this week as my training volume is increasing. It hasn’t been fun, or easy, but that’s the difference maker and that’s why most people don’t want to do it.

I don’t think there is a short cut to any success, and the people who strike it lucky don’t stick around anyway. Just keep moving forward.

July 6 - Creating A Successful Family

Do you want your family to continue to grow and thrive or are you satisfied with leaving things the way they are?

Hey, It’s Dr. Kresimir Jug

My goal is to qualify for the CrossFit Games at 55, I’m really more concerned with leaving a legacy for my kids and family. I hope I can help motivate and inspire you to move towards your goals as well.

I believe you should run your family, and your life, like it’s a business.

I know that might sound strange so let me explain…

Businesses are obsessed with one thing - growth. They understand that if next year rolls around, and they are not changing and growing, they might as well be dying.

Are you obsessed with growth? Is your family?

I know you have dreams and aspirations. I know you want to do certain things with your kids, I know you have vacations you want to take. But if you’re not planning the time to make these things happen, they never will.

Business have quarterly meetings, quarterly goals, deadlines, accountability, expense reports, projections, structure. Those are all necessary if you want to live your best live.

Just a thought. Would love to know what you think.

June 29 - How To Change Your Mindset Control What You Can

Hey, It’s Dr. Kresimir Jug

My goal is to qualify for the CrossFit Games at 55, I’m really more concerned with leaving a legacy for my kids and family. I hope I can help motivate and inspire you to move towards your goals as well.

As things continue and pressure builds and the rhythm of life takes you up and then down, I’ve noticed I’m becoming more and more tolerant of letting certain emotions dictate my moods and decisions.

I want life to feel happy, light and full of purpose. This is opposite of fear, dread and cynicism. 

But it’s hard right? How can you change what happens to you? Are things out of your control and how do you deal with them?

I would to tell you I knew the answers to these questions, I don’t. I do know what I’ve done (and getting better at doing) that’s helped me.

It’s about controlling the one thing you know how to control.

That’s what this week’s video is all about.

June 21 - How To Get Out Of A Hole - Getting Motivated

Hey, It’s Dr. Kresimir Jug

My goal is to qualify for the CrossFit Games at 55, I’m really more concerned with leaving a legacy for my kids and family. I hope I can help motivate and inspire you to move towards your goals as well.

Last week was a hard week. I was in a hole and I needed to get motivated. I didn’t have my mindset figured out and as a result was out of the game mentally.

This week is much different, it’s not that my problems have changed, they haven’t, I’m just in a much better spot. 

How did I get there?

I’m proud that I’m spending less time in the hole, but when I look at it, it was really -

  1. Perspective and 
  2. Scope

I’d much rather talk about it then write, so check out the video and you’ll know what I mean.

June 13th - Should You Let Go?

It’s been a tough week this week, in the sense that some of my deepest fears are being challenged.

Tough yet good! It’s time to face those fears, as scary as they may be and finally put an end to all this worry and concern.

I’m interested in how you handle it? Have you ever come face to face with your deepest fears? Did you win, or did it get the better of you?

On a much happier note I started sharing a new segment I’m filming with my dad called “Wisdom Over Sljivovica” were I try to get some wisdom from my father.

Let’s just say it will be interesting.

June 6th - How Much Stress Can You Take Before You Break?

One of the most important statistics that businesses measure is how many different people/customers/patients/clients they have.

It’s a sign of security, if you lose 2 clients it’s a much different story when you have a 1000 other ones vs. only having 50.

Look at it another way – it’s a sign of how much stress your business can handle before you feel the negative effects.

But this question applies to different things in your life as well. How much mental stress can you handle before your mindset cracks? How much emotional stress can you handle before you reach for the junk food?

Today I talk about the importance of building up your density or tolerance to stress

May 30th - What About When You Don't Feel Like Training?

It’s easy to train and work hard when everything is going well and you feel great.

But what happens when you’ve had a crappy day, or things aren’t going the way you planned, how do you get the work done then?

What keeps you going and motivated? I’ve never liked slogans like ‘no pain no gain’ I don’t think it should be painful to get what you want.

I don’t think it should be easy either but the idea that I have to endure pain is just not my cup of tea.

On this video, I share a much better strategy and one that I think will get you want you want quicker and with much more joy.

May 25th - Are You Vacationing, Or Just Taking Downtime? There's A Big Difference

We just got back from vacation, and it was great.

I'm not the hugest fan of resorts, there's nothing wrong with them; I prefer a faster pace, but it was excellent to spend time with my parents in an environment where we could all be together.

This trip reminded me of the importance of vacations. Vacations are important because the change in your environment forces your mind into a different perspective and that change of perspective helps you make different conclusions and provides perspective.

The best part is you don't even have to take a 'vacation' just spend some time in a different environment to get your brain to do the same thing.

If you've ever traveled and had a completely amazing idea strike you out of the blue, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

May 9 - Follow Your Schedule Not Your Emotions

Everything has been great this week except for sleep.

Ari's been a bit off, and he's been waking and asking to come sleep with us, at about 2:30 in the morning.

That timing has made it difficult for me to get back to sleep and I've been waking up early.

As you can imagine and relate to, I've been tired, and as a result, my drive and motivation have been much less. Despite all this, I've still managed to get everything done that I've needed to.

Waiting for inspiration/ motivation to strike is not a great productivity strategy; following a schedule is how to make your dreams a reality.

This week I'm hoping that you take the time to plan everything out and execute on that plan.

May 2- Why Can't I Stick To My Diet?

Since coming back from NYC, my diet has been the best. I've allowed myself a little more room to eat things I know I shouldn't be eating.

This video is all about how I handle when my diet is more off track than I would like it to be. I hope you find this conversation helpful, since staying on track has very little to do with food and more to do with you.

We also have Glamma come for a visit, and both Ari and Vedi get super silly.

Hope you're having a great week. Talk to you soon.
