864 STRONG – Gunny’s Blog / Friday 12.16.2022

Eight. Six. Four. Strength + Conditioning – HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIMS!

Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.
-Proverbs 11:24-25

“Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give.”
-Ben Carson

“Christmas can be celebrated in the school room with pine trees, tinsel and reindeers, but there must be no mention of the man whose birthday is being celebrated. One wonders how a teacher would answer if a student asked why it was called Christmas.”
Ronald Reagan

“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”

You know, eternal life does not start when we go to heaven. It starts the moment you reach out to Jesus. He never turns His back on anyone. And He is waiting for you.
-Corrie Ten Boom

Small, minded people rarely have ideas, just a litany of excuses and complaints.
-Your Friend

Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man.
-Ronald Reagan

“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
-Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address, Jan. 20, 1981

Quote from Coach Glassman: “Chase your weakness.”
Don’t avoid working on the things that you suck at. Pick one or two of them and add them into your warm-up.

Useless fact for the day: In the 1800s, artificial Christmas trees were made from dyed goose feathers or the stuff hula skirts were made from – green raffia.

To rush into explanations is always a sign of weakness.

Taking on too much of other people’s drama is just a poor excuse for not taking ownership and control over your own life.
-Focus on Your Life.

If you take everything personally, you’ll remain offended for the rest of your life. What other people do is often because of them, not you.

Social Media tip of the day:  It takes discipline not to let social media steal your time, your privacy and your joy.
What do you benefit from exposing your entire life to random people? Don’t be a narcissist. Have pride in yourself but keep your personal life personal.
