Words to live by from the streets of New Orleans: "Gangstas do what they waan + suckas do what they can"

Words to live by from the streets of New Orleans: “Gangstas do what they waan + suckas do what they can”

When reading articles, watching clips, or listening to presentations, there are often thoughts, ideas, or specific quotes that tend to stick, and make the greatest impact.  Often, these specific ideas are the ones that help us learn and grow to be better, not only in our professions, but in all aspects of our lives and relationships.

I have compiled several of these thoughts, ideas, or quotes from videos, articles, courses, and some of my own.  They hit on everything from health, nutrition and food, to business, happiness, physical therapy, and fitness.  Hopefully some of these little thoughts and ideas will make an impact on you as well. 

“If I like the moment, I mean me, personally, I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it.” – Sean Penn’s character in the movie Walter Mitty

“Cooked tomatoes contain compounds (lycopenes) that switch off growth-promoting genes in the prostate. With cooked tomatoes in the diet, prostate cancer risk decreases; without the tomatoes, risk increases.”  – John Berardi, PhD; Ryan Andrews, MS, MA, RD; Precision Nutrition – The Essentials of Sport and Exercise Nutrition: Certification Manual, 2014 

“Much of what we eat interacts directly with our DNA or causes hormonal cascades that influence our DNA.”  – John Berardi, PhD; Ryan Andrews, MS, MA, RD; Precision Nutrition – The Essentials of Sport and Exercise Nutrition: Certification Manual, 2014 

“Breathing is the one attribute that functions both consciously and at an unconscious or subconscious level. At any time you can manage your state by controlling your breath.”   – Gray Cook,  Continuums

Physical therapy, strength and conditioning, sports training, fitness, weight loss, manual therapy, etc. are not all different entities. They are all one in the same, just on different parts of a continuum. Certain skills are needed at certain times for specific reasons. Therefore, they should all be working together.  – Shaun Logan, movmentbylogan.com 

“Continuum: A continuous sequence in which adjacent elements are not particularly different from each other although the extremes are quite different.”   – Gray Cook,  Continuums

In particular, we need to expose them to a broad range of activities that create a rich proprioceptive environment when they come in to train. Key to success on this front is making sure that there aren’t redundancies within the training session in terms of movement challenges. – Eric Cressey – http://www.ericcressey.com/tag/postural-restoration-institute
