My most important role in my life is being a father, role model and leader to my two amazing children, Logan and Kaylee.

I started watching them for 15 hours a day from 7:45 AM until 10:00 PM every day. Initially it was very challenging, because I was breaking the work-at-home workaholic cycle on top of figuring out what to do to add value to their lives.

I needed to “Dad-up” and realize that I needed to not just be in the same room as the kids, but truly be PRESENT in the moment and become more lovingly interactive with them. I realized that pressing play on NetFlix and letting the kids play video games for hours while you type away on the laptop isn’t truly being present with them and they notice.

I missed so much of their life with Grapplers Quest and I decided that I wanted to become a Super Dad.

I remember seeing Jungle Gym founder, Justin Garcia giving some tips and showing fun projects from his amazing Home Schooling Program due out soon (http://MasterChim.com) and I was inspired to set out to fill my new found time with the kids with activities to engage their hearts, minds, soul and spirit.

We started doing arts and crafts, learning Spanish, comic book drawing, practicing nightly meditation, learning the solar system, playing board and card games, star gazing with telescope on clear nights, “Super Hero Training” which is basic exercises with leadership skills and several other Life Skills development programs and several other FUN activities we do together. I even reward their good behavior with Family Inclusive Video Games like Beatles Rock Band nearly every evening – I’ll write about that another blog…all in all, I’m trying to be the Best Dad I can be. I love recommendations for fun things to do – please reply with any ideas.

NOW TO THE PHOTO…

“It’s not coming off!” I exclaimed.

The Red Stained hands in the main picture belong to my beautiful 3-year-old daughter, Kaylee Paige Cimins who slammed down a “Do-A-Dot” marker, breaking the felt tip and causing Red Ink to flow out of the marker. She had been told several times to not slam them down, so when she broke it, she started crying and proceeded to wipe RED INK all over her face too while trying to wipe away tears. She ran into the bathroom where I was giving my son a bath nearly exactly how the picture shows, except she was screaming and crying.

First, I thought she was bleeding and freaked out….who wouldn’t, she was dripping fresh red ink from her hands and face. Once I realized what occurred and that the Red was just Do-A-Dot Marker stained, I tried to clean the ink off. First I tried to clean off her hands with Trader Joe’s Next to Godliness Hand Soap which didn’t remove any ink at all. Unfortunately, then I tried to clean her hands with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps Tea Tree Oil which removed only 15-20% of the color stains. AHHHH!!! What will I do???

ENTER MY SOLUTION —- Super Body Care’s Walnut Scrub

My daughter started crying again after Dr. Bronner soap barely did anything – she asked, “Daddy, are my hands going to be red forever?”. I calmed her down and promised her I would get it out.

Finally, I grabbed Cheri Heberling’s Super Body Care Walnut Scrub and within seconds of calmly scrubbing, the color came off…completely. She loves the smell, so she allowed me to gently scrub her face (around her sensitive skin of her eyes) as well, because she had wiped her face while crying her eyes looked like a prize fighter. It easily removed her Do-A-Dot eye makeup too.

Thank you Super Body Care for helping me look like a Super Dad to Kaylee. Check out Super Body Care products at: http://SuperBodyCare.com or purchase the Walnut Scrub directly here: http://superbodycare.com/shop/#!/~/product/category=1870672&id=8057839

Daily Positive Affirmation for Kids and Parents with Brian Cimins – Every Day in Every Way, I’m Getting Better

Please enjoy another “Positive Affirmation for Kids” with Logan John Cimins, 5-year-old son of Life Coach and Grapplers Quest founder, Brian Cimins

“Every Day in Every Way, I’m Getting Better”
– Logan Cimins inspired by American Monk, Burt Goldman

This great positive affirmation is inspired by one of my mentors, Burt Goldman, aka “The American Monk”. It can be used at ANY age, especially for people who’ve been sick or with some type of long term illness.

People who consistently wait for others to ask, “How are you doing?” or “How are you feeling?”, just to launch into a 30 minute conversation about how much pain they are in or how bad something hurts or aches. Complaining and reliving an “old injury” is just magnifying the problem to you and the listening party.

Complaining doesn’t allow you to focus on your progress, however big or small, you are just wallowing in your pain. I broke my back in a martial arts competition on December 2, 2000 and was nearly paralyzed. As a martial arts event promoter, I refused to let my scary story give a black eye to the sport. I set out to completely recreate my mental frame of mind to help others deal with challenging situations, something life always seems to deliver.

Even if you are in pain, please realize EVERYONE “suffers” in their own way. By responding with a more uplifting and inspirational response, even if you are in pain when the person asks, you will quickly accelerate your own healing, even if just in your mind – at least it’s a start. Start healing in your mind first and YOUR body will follow. You must believe in this, if you really want to live pain free.

Give it a try, start today and repeat this Affirmation and Mantra every day for 30 days, “Every Day in Every Way, I’m Getting Better”.

Until next time, BE positive 🙂

With your success and happiness in mind
Your Strategy Coach,
Brian J. Cimins

We can all be Super Heroes to our kids, but you got to be there first with Brian Cimins

We can all be Super Heroes to our kids, but you got to be there first. Logan and Kaylee have been home sick this week but I finally got to really focus on them, just as a Dad.

Balancing our work time with family time can be really challenging. Try not to be so hard on yourself – one day they will understand that you gave your heart and soul to both career and family…and it took everything you had – and THEY ARE WORTH IT!

Working from home has always been a challenge – but I finally am figuring out how to make it work and not be the absentee, “always busy” Dad who didn’t have time for his kids.

As parents, we all must realize that there will come a day that if we work all the time and avoid our most important job of all – being parents our children will not become the same amazing people they could and should become.

At the end of your life, images of your children, wife and loved ones will flash to you, not bank statements and piles of money. I’m not saying don’t try to be successful, I’m saying don’t let the endless pursuit of fame and fortune blind you from uncovering your true purpose in life beyond the game of Monopoly that we all enjoy playing so much. Don’t be afraid to dig deep into your subconscious mind…there’s an infinite universe inside your mind.

You must do the thing you think you cannot do--Eleanor Roosevelt - Thoughts by Brian Cimins

You must do the thing you think you cannot do–Eleanor Roosevelt

Our ultimate challenge or QUEST in life is the challenge and conquer our fears and come to the ultimate realization how powerful we truly are. Living in fear or displaying anger, jealously or resentment or with a guilty conscious (or subsconscious) is not living your life to it’s fullest potential. Living in a horrible relationship for fear of “facing the world with failure of divorce” is much worse than the actual work it takes to fix and face the REAL issues. Many actions, like infidelity or secretive relationships are symptoms of a super unhealthy relationship, to the core. Doing the right thing when no one is looking is one thing everyone should aspire to attain. When you live in freedom from only doing good things and live a “cleaner life” and true to the ones you love, you are “enlightened” simply because nothing is weighing you down or holding you back, especially within the subsconscious mind.

Avoid Scam Artist Life Coaches with SEVEN Important Questions Every Life Coach or Business Consultant Should Confidently Answer by Brian Cimins

 

Times are tough and people’s moral compasses are starting to change for the worse.  Evil is rising as the financial challenges increase and we need to be more aware then ever of people taking advantage of others.  You can protect yourself from scam artist business consultants altogether with SIX important questions for any potential future Life Coach or Business Expert.

1. Have you ever built a successful business yourself from the ground up? 

2. What’s it’s full legal name and is it still around?

3. Have you ever helped build one (or more) of your client’s businesses from the ground up? 

4. Who are some of your other past and current clients? 

5. Can I have some of your client’s phone numbers and contact information for follow-up interview? 

6. Do you have video testimonials?

7. Have you received certification from a Life Coach Association? If so, which one and could I see a copy of your Certificate and get the contact phone number of the Association for a recommendation?

BEWARE OF SCAMMERS: I’ve met a lot of coaches in my life who professed religion or just read “The Secret” for the first time as a mask to hide their true evil identity as fake Business Coaches, people that had never truly made it in the real world on their own.  They preyed on people’s faith in humanity while falsely professing to a prophet or a skill set they were not properly prepared for.  They would falsely build “integrity” while hiding their true inferiority on the entrepreneurial level or be afraid to speak about their past “failures”. Sometimes, I think clients should ask, “Why are you a LIFE COACH?”.

We want to be mentally prepared for those who will “fish for sales and leads” by riding the coat tails of other successful people riding successful trending industries like Mixed Martial Arts and strategically picking off their hopefuls one by one.  Sad stories about business scams and investment fraud nearly ruined the whole Life Coaching and Business Consultant industry, but the Bullshit can stop right here. If YOU Ask a potential LIFE COACH those six questions, it separates the Bullshitters from the people who will really help you or even have the right skill set and visionary ability to help your business grow and help heal your life, if necessary.

Beware of people professing to be experts in everything, they are usually Masters of Nothing. 

I am YOUR Wounded Warrior and I’d never let a client down.  I donate my time to raise money for Autism and help businesses grow, relationships heal and lives improve. Find out more information online at: http://CoachingForAutism.org

“Hey Devil, Come on back if you ever want to try again – I told you once, you son of a bitch, I’m the BEST that’s ever been”.

If a potential Life Coach or Business Consultant can’t easily answer the questions above – tell them to “Go back to Hell”. I’ve seen too many of my friends “BURNED” by evil doers and vowed to make it a mission of mine to help enable more business owners and entrepreneurs to avoid the pitfalls of hiring a Life Coach or Business Consultant.

Artist: Charlie Daniels
Song: Devil Went Down to Georgia 
Album: A Decade of Hits

Charlie Daniels Sheet Music
Charlie Daniels CDs

The devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind ‘cos he was way behind and he was willin’ to make a deal.
When he came across this young man sawin’ on a fiddle and playin’ it hot.
And the devil jumped upon a hickory stump and said: “Boy let me tell you what:
“I guess you didn’t know it, but I’m a fiddle player too.
“And if you’d care to take a dare, I’ll make a bet with you.
“Now you play a pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the devil his due:
“I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul, ‘cos I think I’m better than you.”
The boy said: “My name’s Johnny and it might be a sin,
“But I’ll take your bet, your gonna regret, ‘cos I’m the best that’s ever been.”

Johnny you rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard.
‘Cos hells broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals the cards.
And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold.
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul.

The devil opened up his case and he said: “I’ll start this show.”
And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow.
And he pulled the bow across his strings and it made an evil hiss.
Then a band of demons joined in and it sounded something like this.
When the devil finished, Johnny said: “Well you’re pretty good ol’ son.
“But sit down in that chair, right there, and let me show you how its done.”

Fire on the mountain, run boys, run.
The devil’s in the house of the risin’ sun.
Chicken in the bread pan, pickin’ out dough.
“Granny, does your dog bite?”
“No, child, no.”

The devil bowed his head because he knew that he’d been beat.
He laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny’s feet.
Johnny said: “Devil just come on back if you ever want to try again.
“cause I told you once, you son of a gun, I’m the best there’s ever been.”

And he played fire on the mountain, run boys, run.
The devil’s in the house of the risin’ sun.
Chicken in the bread pan, now they’re pickin’ out dough.
“Granny, will your dog bite?”
“No, child, no.”

RELATIONSHIP Question: Is your marriage Zombie Apocalypse proof? Brian Cimins

Ironically, just last year, the Centers for Disease control created a marketing campaign to help Kids understand the importance of being prepared for anything. The CDC commented, “it’s a fun new way of teaching the importance of emergency preparedness. Our new graphic novel, Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic demonstrates the importance of being prepared in an entertaining way that people of all ages will enjoy. Readers follow Todd, Julie, and their dog Max as a strange new disease begins spreading, turning ordinary people into zombies.”

The Centers for Disease Control last year slogan: “If you’re ready for the zombie apocalypse, you’re ready for any emergency.”

—————————————————————

Put the media scare tactic and frenzy aside and honestly ask yourself…

Is your marriage Zombie Apocalypse proof?

As the CDC says, if you are prepared for “anything”, you can get through ANYTHING ELSE together with some guidance, support and most importantly, a blueprint to guarantee success in life and marriage. To help stop the growing panic of many people I coach, I’m going to be posting some Emergency Preparedness Tips to combat ALL of the scare tactics being thrown at us in these trying times.

You are NOT alone!

I’ll be finishing up my relationship improvement book before end of year entitled, “The Warrior Wife Within” and offering free segments here to help strengthen and improve your relationship. I will also be offering coaching sessions starting in January of 2013 to married couples, business owners, and entrepreneurs. We are ALL navigating through life, some have a blueprint, but so many do not even have a plan for their career, let alone their spouse’s happiness or their own desire for a new hobby or sport. Some are lost, some will get help to write their life blueprint, many will not and continue to repeat the patterns of behavior that got them where they are NOW, which might not be where they wanted to be. I help change people’s patterns, their behaviors and re-charge their lives with mastery of human needs alone and have created massive change in many people’s lives in less than 2 hours with me.

Your Strategy Coach,
Brian J. Cimins

P.S. I get results, because I finally found what I’ve always wanted to do in life, “HELP OTHERS”, and my ultimate realization of what my true passion was in life took my “unlimited opportunities” or “sky’s the limit” to a whole different level with a stronger, “infinite universe” or “super-consciousness” level-mentality and frequency. When true happiness and positive energy and proper supplements flow through you, you operate at a different frequency, you think more clearly, you are more productive and you become more successful, guaranteed!

Finding My True Passion in Life – My Strategy and Life Coach Journey – Brian Cimins

ImageI love Grappling and with strong VISION, passion and burning desire, I created Grapplers Quest. It became everything I dreamt it would be and more – jam packed events worldwide, partnered with the Ultimate Fighting Championship to create UFC Fan Expo Grappling Tournaments, 26-Episode Television deal with FightNow, Events at Mandalay Bay and other Famous Casinos in Las Vegas, licensed UFC Fan Expo brand for first event Grappling Superfight DVD, amazing Sponsors like TapouT, Gaspari Nutrition, Zebra Mats, and Super Body Care and many other accolades and special moments in my life.

As a hobby, throughout my 15 years in the grappling and Mixed Martial Arts world, I have been coaching many of my friends and sponsors with sales and marketing techniques, brand development and how to effectively build strategic partnerships, but I always really flourished on a personal level with many of them. I saw when I focused on healing their personal lives and meeting their human needs, MASSIVE change occurred, not just in business, but in their personal relationships with their Children, Partners, Parents, Friends, Spouses, you name it.

In 2004, I went full time with Grapplers Quest and within 5 years all my dreams came true. I realized that MY QUEST (journey) came with many pitfalls and challenges that if not properly coached through the tough times by people like Bruce Buffer (UFC Announcer), Dan Caldwell (Punkass), my Mastermind mentor, Tony Robbins and Relationship Expert Chloe Madannes, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

I realized the POWER and great feelings that were generated when helping others was profound, something my father, Paul John Cimins always instilled in me. The more I helped others succeed, the better I felt, the harder I worked to help HEAL people’s lives, families and businesses, the BETTER I felt.

Starting in January 2013, I will be helping Business Owners & Entrepreneurs grow their Business, Achieve Better results, and Design Their Life Blueprint, personally and professionally, but most importantly, HELP YOU LOVE LIFE AGAIN!
