Workout Wednesday – No need to be Gentile
It’s not really workout related, but I like this video by Zach Anner. If you don’t have time to watch the video, just take away the key message of treating people as individuals 🙂
Every week I write a Monday Morning Motivation post. These are posts to inspire and motivate you! They include content sourced from around the world.

“You only get one shot, if you only take one shot” “Sometimes your misses help you discover something new.” “You may only make one shot out of 100, but there’s no way to make ’em unless you take ’em!” …and if you don’t remember ‘Lose Yourself’, the Eminem track that Zach refers to, here it is:
