Knowing is NOT half the battle! A PSA from Training for Warriors Portland

Coach Josh here from Training for Warriors Portland, and I have a little message for you today. 

Now, if you're about my age, you MIGHT have watched GI Joe when you were a kid. I did all the time! At the end of the episode, right after the Joes achieve victory over the Cobra, there would be a public service announcement (PSA). One of the heroes would be give a young kid a little bit of education. Advice like, cross the street at the crosswalk, how to use a fire extinguisher, or don't take the batteries out of the smoke alarm. After dispensing this nugget of  wisdom, the Joe would say, "And now you know... and knowing is half the battle." If you're old enough to be watching this and watching talking to me, you know this statement is bullshit. Why?

Because every person that I meet is a nutrition expert. If I asked anybody on the street: "Hey, what are the healthiest most nutritious foods you should be eating?" Right off the tip of their tongue, they would say, "Broccoli, cauliflower, lean protein, chicken, green tea, legumes. Boom." Right off the bat! But you go and look in their fridge, and you might see one or two of those things... but you see a  WHOLE lot of other stuff. One of my mentors used to say that the difference between what you know and what you do = your quality of life. 

Again, that space between what you know and what you actually do, that's your quality of life. I'm gonna smash that GI Joe wisdom into a million pieces when I say knowing is a lot less than half the battle. In fact, if you spent more time practicing the things you know... man! You'd have more energy, you'd look great, you'd feel great, you'd have more to give, you'd have more freedom. You'd have a lot more of the things that you want. 

Coach Josh here... Helping you bring out the warrior within (and telling you knowing is NOT half the battle.)
