I’m in the process of writing a book! This has been a long road and process, but I’m very excited to share the introduction and first chapter with you. You are the ultimate insider in this process so let me know if there is anything you’d like to see in a book all about peak performance and health.
Be prepared to start strong with this book. Living a healthy life requires dedication to making good decisions about diet, exercise, supplements, and personal development. Step one, start to identify as someone who lives healthfully.
Do you smoke?
Hopefully the answer to that question is no. If that’s the case, then when someone offers you a cigarette, what do you say? Most likely the answer to that question is, “I don’t smoke.” You’ve internalized the identity of a non-smoker so deeply that it’s an automatic response to say that you simply don’t smoke.
This same process can and should be applied to your identity as it relates to health.
This is just one amazing nugget from this snippet of the book. Listen in to hear more of them and hear the action steps I’m giving you at the end of chapter 1.

We’ve all experienced pain, but how much of it is physiological and how much of it is psychological? I’m asking this question because I recently had a really bad bout with pain and it reminded me about the work of Dr. John Sarno. Dr. John Sarno did a ton of research around the Mindbody Connection. He started his career as a regular doctor, assessing physical trauma and prescribing pain meds or surgery as needed. All was well until he realized that his patients didn’t always get better after the initial issue was treated.
