“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
Some of you may be dreading the holiday season. You may be overwhelmed with things to, places to go, and people to see. I get it. Sometimes we get wrapped up in the chaos of things that we think “must get done” that we forget to enjoy the people we are around and the everyday blessings around us.
Hopefully we can all take some time this holiday season and really enjoy what family, friends, and the amazing world around us have to give us in this life.
Matt and I here at Show Me Strength sincerely wish you guys the best over the holiday season. Thank you so much for your support! Now here are some great motivational items that we hope you will enjoy.
1.) Random Musings: Acknowledging the Present Moment by Jordan Syatt– I think this older post by my friend Jordan is very fitting for this holiday season. Even though we have so much to accomplish, it’s really important to slow things down and work on living in the present while truly enjoying the journey.

2.) The Hero Handbook by Nate Green– This is one of my favorite reads ever. Nate gave this gem out for free on his old site, with the intention of making everyone who read it more healthy, strong, efficient, rich, happy, wealthy, and whatever other synonyms for awesome there are. You must download this! Highly recommended if you are interested in optimizing your lifestyle in a positive way.

3.) What Is Your We? by Martin Rooney– When talking about becoming a better person, sometimes we need to evaluate ourselves objectively to get to where we want to be. Our ideal body, job, lifestyle, or whatever goal you want to achieve takes work. Work needs action steps. Martin breaks it down pretty bluntly for us here and gives us a plan of action we can think about and follow.

4.) The Goal Snowball by Alwyn Cosgrove- This post is short and sweet, but does not lack a clear message. Many people fail around this time of year when they start a new workout out program, start a new diet, or make significant lifestyle changes. They fail because they never picked up the momentum of success in the first place. Alwyn has battled through some very difficult obstacles in his life, and by no means overcame them overnight. He developed a snowball of successes, failures, knowledge, and strength to knock down each goal. Here’s how you can too.
