 KEV's Tips 05: Words matter | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:02:45

For 'KEV's Tips 05: Words Matter' I recorded in my garage gym this morning. On today's episode I'm sharing a mindset that I’ve worked to adopt recently from listening to ‘s ‘Unfu*k Yourself’- I will…(insert forward looking /positive actions)- I will not…(insert what actions and behaviors you will not accept)It really is up to each of us to determine what kind of life we have while we’re in this world. We can either move towards things, not accept things or stay stagnant. Stagnant things get rotten and devolve over time. So, let’s not stay stagnant. Let’s move forward and freshen mines bodies and spirits.- Have a plan So you and your team know what to do- Stay informed With facts not fear- Get involved To make life better for you and those around youKevin Kevin Pannell, PMP | Creator & Host of ‘KEV Talks’ and ‘You-Jitsu’ podcasts - Garage Gym Athlete at channel
