[Daily Impact #20] “It starts with a foundation…”

The phone rings, I pick it up. “This is Justin.” The voice on the other end usually makes some small talk explaining their situation, or has questions about a property, but it usually cumulates into the statement as to why they are calling… “I…

[Daily Impact #19] “Focus on the fundamentals…”

Motivation. Some days we have it, some days we don’t. Today, I don’t have it. My head is foggy, I feel lethargic, I find myself zoning out frequently, and I just feel exhausted. In this day and age of instant gratification, it would be…

[Daily Impact #18] “Funny how life has a way of working out…”

I had just got home after a 16 hour shift on the ambulance. Often times during a long shift, you have some downtime that makes the long hours bearable. Time to get a nap in, sit down and enjoy a lunch or dinner, or…

[Daily Impact #17] “Justin vs Time…”

It was midway through the second period. Team Voigt had their best on the ice, trying to score their first goal in a 2-0 game. They had plenty of chances throughout the game, but we were playing good defense and I was turning away…

[Daily Impact #16] “Tomorrow is not promised to anyone…”

When people find out I was an EMT for 20 years, one of the first things I am always asked is, “What is the worst thing you have seen”. The answer I give is not what people are expecting or looking for. They are…

[Daily Impact #15] “Make today the day…”

Remember when you were a kid, dreaming about what you were going to become when you grew up. Maybe it was just you sitting alone in your room on a rainy day, or hanging out with your best friend laying in the grass talking…

[Daily Impact #14] “I’m getting too old…”

I have not remained consistent with my workouts. It’s true. It started this Summer when I decided to take the Summer off from Hockey. I was feeling mentally exhausted from 9 months of Hockey and managing a Hockey League. My body felt a little…

[Daily Impact #13] “The Journey to 100 Push-Ups…”

A month or so ago, I made the decision that I wanted to be able to do 100 push-ups in a row. For most people, this is no easy task, and I definitely fall in to this category. The most push-ups I have ever…

[Daily Impact #12] “No, I am not a Vegan, but…”

I get asked all the time if I am a Vegan, or why I don’t eat meat. Yes, it is true, I embrace a Plant-Based lifestyle whenever possible, but this decision is not as simple as slapping a label on me and calling it…

[Daily Impact #11] “Details…”

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” – Bruce Lee Details. That is what separates the amateur from the Pro. It’s not the one that has the most…

[Daily Impact #10] “I’m a Protector…”

Today, my mentor spoke about mindset. A mindset is something that you believe, that empowers you to become. They are amplifiers of our natural ability. Negative mindsets destroy our natural ability, keeping our potential trapped inside of us. While empowering mindsets amplify our natural…

[Daily Impact #9] “I’m a terrible employee…”

It’s true. I arrive early. I do more than what is expected of me. I find problems and fix them. I stay late. I will help cover shifts. I will work holidays without question. But… I will not do bullshit work just to look…
