The Marathon Effect

Have you ever noticed how it doesn’t seem to matter how big or how small a project is, you reach a point about 80% of the way through when you feel like you will never be able to finish it? I call this phenomenon “The Marathon Effect” because as Angie started running in races and competing in triathlons and the distances progressed, I noticed a funny thing… Regardless of the distance of the race, she got to a point where she wasn’t 100% sure that she would be able to finish it. In a 5K race, it might come at […]

A Behind The Scenes Look At Habit Stacking

Hello Everyone!  Angie Flynn here. I wanted to share a concept I’ve discovered recently that has really helped me get my s&*t together. Deb and I joke about it a lot, but I can get a little squirrelly and scatterbrained at times (I know, SHOCKING, right?). I love what I do for a living, and because I love it so much, I tend to overextend myself from time to time. Then, I end up overwhelmed and turning in circles behind my desk, not having any idea where to go or what to do. I have a number of very high profile, […]

Deb Speaks

Many people think of America’s Achievement Expert, Deb Cheslow, as a peak performance coach and consultant, a facilitator, and a team member who has the innate ability to get to the root cause of a problem and develop a system to remedy it – and she is… ALL those things. But did you know that Deb also SPEAKS? Deb has been hired by some of the largest corporations in America, including Sam’s Club, WalMart, Ambit Energy, and PNC Bank – just to name a few. From one-hour keynotes to multi-day workshops, Deb crafts each of her presentations into a work […]

Angie's Top 10 Tools For Getting Your "Diet" Mojo Back

I want to talk about a subject that I think a lot of us may be dealing with, which is how do we get our healthy eating mojo back now that the holidays are over so we can keep moving toward our health and wellness goals? When January 2nd rolled around, I was totally dealing with the same issue myself. I got back from my “trip” to Virginia on the evening of December 23rd and Deb and I had decided in advance that as soon as I got home our holidays would begin. I was injured and I was bummed […]

UnREALogical Health

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE! Welcome to 2018! The beginning of the new year is always a great time to take a look back and take stock of our accomplishments over the past year and then look forward to what we want to achieve during the coming year. I’m not a big believer in “New Year’s Resolutions” because they just never tend to work out. In fact, most people will have given up on their resolutions by the beginning of February. However, I am a HUGE believer in goal-setting and then utilizing a system to make those goals realities! And we […]

Are We Having Fun Yet?… The Holiday Edition

Handling the inevitable stress, tension, and disappointment of holiday gatherings…   It’s a scenario that plays out across the globe every holiday season. Families come together to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company. But how long does the celebration last before someone gets their feelings hurt and walks off to sulk in another room?  How long before an argument starts?  How long before the vibration at the gathering changes from celebration to stress and tension? How many times have you left a family gathering thinking to yourself (or even complaining out loud): “Why do we do this every single year?  Was that fun?” Why […]

The Path

When we embark upon a self-development journey and desire to achieve some big goal, I think most people understand that they’re not going to sit in their living room with their eyes closed chanting “BMW… BMW… BMW…” and open their eyes to find a brand new, shiny BMW sitting there. That’s not how it works. However, I think there are a lot of people who think the process will be a lot quicker and a lot easier than it often is – especially when we are talking about great big, UNREALOGICAL goals. On the contrary, my personal experience and that of […]

Rise Above The Storm

It’s been an interesting few weeks here in Florida. Hurricane Irma arrived on our radar on Labor Day as it quickly toppled previous records for big, bad hurricanes in the Atlantic. The forecasts (spaghetti models) were ridiculously unhelpful for deciding how to proceed. Should we evacuate the coast? The state? The entire eastern seaboard? Nothing east of Kansas and south of Pennsylvania seemed to be outside the cone of probability. You could almost feel the level of panic begin to rise as people began to make preparations for an epic storm – many of these people (myself included) just had repairs from […]
