People often assume when they meet Matt and I that we’ve known each other for years.


And, while I suppose that’s now true as it’s coming up to 4 years since we started working together……..


We’d only actually known each other a few months before that.


But, right from the start, we always found there were certain key things that we agreed on.


And that differences in opinions since have been in minor matters – not the core, fundamental beliefs and concepts behind what we do.


One thing we always agreed on was that we were going to do this the way we thought was best.


We knew some people wouldn’t like that.


But we also knew some would love it.


And we knew that sticking to what we believed and creating something ‘pure’ to our vision would work much better than something that gets diluted by trying to please everyone.


We all know the expression……..


“If you try and please everyone, you’ll please no one.”


You wouldn’t believe the amount of times we’ve been told “you can’t do that.”


About these daily emails.


About being honest and, sometimes, blunt with people about the ‘justifications’ they’re giving for where they are at.


About the way we structure the programmes.


About most things really.




You probably get the same.


“You can’t do that.”


From friends, family, colleagues, etc.


Often trying to flabotage you.


Often projecting their own issues onto something you’re doing.


Their own self limiting beliefs.


Their own lack of success at what you’re doing.


The stories they tell themselves as to why it ‘can’t’ happen for them.


Always remember that, if you’re not hurting someone, you can do whatever you like.


It’s your life.


Live it how you want.


You want to eat unhealthy food and not exercise?


That’s cool.


Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.


You want to be fit, healthy, energetic and, hopefully, have a long and happy life?


Don’t let anyone get in your way.


You can do it 🙂


With our help if you like 😉



Much love,
