When I started this whole coaching thing I thought it would be easy to stay in business for ever…… HA , yet I see new people sign up every day with hopes and dreams of becoming great coaches and making huge money.
You can , but not by quitting.
I have seen so many lose to their fears and give up for reasons that range from , ” I just don’t have the time” to ” my wife thinks this is a scam”
Why are they so eager to sign up and then become doubtful in a short time frame?
Well from my perspective its simple, when they sign up as a coach they are signing up to a challenge of making someone’s life better, it could be their own or a friend , or even a stranger. But the initial reason they sign up is there is a hope inside them that needs to come out and show that they can do something for themselves.
The reason we quit anything is our ego. We have grown up with perception as reality. What others see us as hurts the ego when we are doing “out of the norm” actions. People that let others control them are truly not free. To be free, you must not let others drive your aspirations. YOU are the driver in your life, and you choose the road to travel. Take responsibility for your life and take it where you want to go. Don’t say “But…..” Its your first line of defense for your ego. Step outside of yourself and look in, are you being controlled?
And being a Beachbody coach is not for every one , even though anyone can be a coach. You have to find what it is about you that will make you happy and what will drive you to your success.
So this is a new year, a new time in history for you to make of it what you will, and don’t let others tell you what that is, for the ones who say “don’t do that” may not have your best interest at heart, but its THIER fear that is holding you back.
I am a great Beachbody coach, how do I know? I have great success with those who join my team and those who join my challenge group. It may not be 100s of people it may just be 5-6 , but really the most important things in life are friendship and support. That’s what I bank on.
Have an awesome new year.
I want to say , that being a coach I get to meet the greatest people . Gina is actually a high school friend of mine and she has been doing so good for the last 3 months. Last month she won the prize for the challenge group.
I had the honor of dropping off the prize to her in person. She decided it was time to stay accountable and keep up with her workouts and keep going . Not only does she work out at home , but she runs 5ks too! She is blessed to have a wonderful life as a mother and grandmother. And her daily fitness routine has given her the ability to keep up with all that her busy life has her doing.
Gina is always smiling even after sweating it out with the 21 day fix or running. She inspires me as well as our other challengers and that’s what makes a great challenge group!
If you see Gina, give her a big hug!
And their off!
I started my next two year journey yesterday , my next belt advancement. Third Dahn is more than I ever thought I would do, but yesterday started me on the path.
What the heck was I thinking?
So I have been an avid rib smoker for over 10 years now , and I have learned some great tips to save time without sacrificing taste. Although some in the rib smoking crowd may poo-poo my direction, these steps, if followed will deliver a great tasting pork rib.
Let me first say that although a very tasty treat , ribs are not low fat , or low calorie and should therefore be made “Sparingly” Pun intended. But if you wish to delight in the awesomeness that ribs deliver along with a fantastic smelling house.
There are tons of smoker out there on the market, do your research and get what you can afford and base it on your use. I have the Acorn from Char-griller and love this Egg knock-off. But if you have a gas model or electric you can use that too.
Since I do woodworking I also have a supply of cheery and oak, both suitable for smoking and have a sweet flavor. But if you don’t have any available wood, check out Amazon for some “Smoking wood”. Fruit wood is best.
Ok here is where you can get a ton of great rubs, I have used almost all of them but my favorite is still from North Carolina
The night before, rub the ribs with your favorite rub, or salt and pepper, put them in the fridge.
You will need at least 4-6 hours of prep before you can eat them so plan your day accordingly.
That morning pull the ribs out and let them warm up to room temp. (about 1-hour)
While that’s happening get the grill ready, Light the charcoal and get the chamber up to about 200 degrees.
Place the ribs in the smoker add the wood chips and lock it down.
Maintain heat of 200 degrees for 2 hours, also make sure your wood isn’t all burnt up , you may have to add more wood chips.
After 2 hours remove the ribs from the grill and place them in aluminum foil with about 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar for each rack. I wrap the the racks separately.
Place them in the oven at 200 degrees for another 2-4 hours. ( This is my time saver, you no longer have to watch the smoker and the ribs are flavored with the smoke)
After 2-4 hours heat the grill again to char-grill temp, HOT. I like to have a heaping fire in the grill for this step.
Lather up the ribs with your favorite sauce , I like Dave’s!
Sear the ribs on the high heat until the sauce is caramelized….. OH YEAH!
Then you are ready to serve them.
So I guess if you have an electric or gas smoker you can let them go as long as you like, but the key to tender ribs is wrapping them up with the vinegar. And of course , searing them on a charcoal fire is the finishing touch to the perfect ribs.
