This one runs deep, for most of us, we walk around with a weight on our shoulders that nagging voice that says we don't belong and a pretender in "this" space.


Imposter Phenomena (not actual a syndrome) is a very real issue for up to 80% of the population according to the stats but I think it's probably only the psychos and sociopaths that don't feel it.

What is it?

How do we overcome it?

The word discipline pops up in all sorts of domains. Why? And why is it seen as a hard thing that we rebel against?


Let's spend a bit of time thinking about the concept of the world and what lies beneath.

  Friend or foe, how do you view it?  

The biggest domino in your fitness journey that needs to fall first (IMHO) is energy. If you agree you might want to check out my (Free)
