Make your days count

Marietta, GA – “Make your days count. Don’t count your days!”

Trevor Moawad wrote a terrific book called, “Getting to Neutral”. Trevor was battling cancer in his middle 40’s when he wrote this book with his best friend and NFL All-Pro, Russell Wilson. The premise of his book is that we can’t really live if we don’t live in the now. Golfer Greg Norman calls it, “Do it now, Do it proper”. Repetitive activities done well become habits which continues the flywheel effect and the momentum continues. This is quite different from “positive thinking”. It’s the absence of “negative thinking”. There is a difference. Trevor’s training centered on focusing on the task at hand as being neither “positive” or “negative”. The present situation is what it is. We have to make decisions and choices in the present moment. Will our thoughts and actions move us toward our objectives or away from them?

Doing what you need to do in the present has been misinterpreted as modern stoicism. Trevor would disagree. He passed away at 48 after impacting thousands of people with his mental training and conditioning for elite organizations like the Universities of Florida, Georgia and Alabama. My challenge to you is to live every moment in the present. The past is the past.  Learn from it and move on. The future is not determined. Don’t dwell on a future that is so far out as to become more dreams and fantasy than obtainable. A long distance runner can dream of marathons but unless he trains in the present, he will never be able to compete competitively for a full 26 miles. Every worthwhile goal in life is made up of many incremental steps that must be done to reach a successful completion.

1.- Trevor taught elite athletes how to hyper focus on executing at the highest levels by performing well incrementally.

2.- Living in the present moment is the only way to achieve your goals and objectives. 

3.- Every moment should be seen as an opportunity to move incrementally toward fulfilling your purpose.


Love the Present Moment

Kennesaw, GA – Love the Present Moment

Trevor Moawad and Dr. Bob Rotella work with elite athletes that are outliers within their chosen sports.

NEGATIVITY is Powerful And THIS is How You BEAT It | Trevor Moawad

World’s Premier Sports Psychologist | Dr Bob Rotella

What both have found is a common thread that is remarkable. The best of the best performers have a way to hyper focus on executing the present moment.

Trevor calls this focus on the present “Neutral Thinking” and Dr. Rotella calls this focused “Single mindedness”.  There are no positive or negative thoughts.  The current moment (Present or NOW) is just is what it is. Neutral.

When elite performers are in the zone, they focus on what do to next. In the present. NOW.

Not what might have happened yesterday or celebrating a victory tomorrow but what exactly is needed to be done right now.

Think of two recent examples.

1.- Tom Brady was playing in the 2017 Super Bowl against the Atlanta Falcons and found his team trailing 28-3.  What happened in the second half was unbelievable.  The New England offense coalesced around Tom into a single-minded unit to hyper focus on executing perfectly the next play, stringing together series after series to score 31 unanswered points to win 34-28 in OT.

2.- Tiger Woods has won the Master Golf Tournament 5 times. Playing against the very best golfers in the world, he won the 1997 Masters with a score of 18 under par! What we saw was someone who can be so “in the zone” that nothing seems to happen other than the very next shot’s strategy and execution.

I encourage you to become your best self.  Do the little things well in the present moment that propels you toward your goals.

Your efforts will not be in vain. I assure you.
