- In a medium bowl, mix soy sauce, light brown sugar, distilled white vinegar, garlic powder, seasoned salt, garlic pepper seasoning, and lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage. Reserve about 1/2 cup of this marinade for basting. Place steak in a large resealable plastic bag. Cover with the remaining marinade, and seal. Refrigerate for 8 hours, or overnight.
- Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add green peppers, and cook for 1 minute, just to blanch. Drain, and set aside.
- Preheat grill for high heat. Thread steak, green peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, and pineapple onto skewers in an alternating fashion. Discard marinade and the bag.
- Lightly oil the grill grate. Cook kabobs on the prepared grill for 10 minutes, or to desired doneness. Baste frequently with reserved marinade during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

“The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery.” (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/courage)
Courage is an amazing word. It’s power can really change a person completely. I’ve met many people who either engage it or shy from it. It’s not easy to face adversity, but with a proper “state of mind”, amazing things can happen.
I was talking to a friend recently and said, “People in your profession will want you to fail. To attain victory, you must take it from those that want it just as bad as you do. They want you to fail either out of jealousy, hate, ambition, spite, or simply because they don’t like you. You have to smash through that.”
How do you go up against that kind of pressure? How do you stand tall knowing that there are people out there who wants you to fail? You have to remain confident in yourself and keep moving forward. Embrace those that speak ill of you and show everyone that you are so much more. That is courage. The “state of mind” to break free from the B.S. and attain your own personal victory. Be courageous and go out of your comfort zone (i.e. make changes with your perspective on life, your self esteem, your productivity level, etc.).
It’s time to move. Take what you need and leave behind whatever that may hold you down: past expectations, past memories, past moments, “the past”, etc.
Be courageous. Break free from the past. Achieve your goals today. -Tim
Goals, everyone has a reason why they are here. Some for looks, some for performance, others just for overall health. Whether it is to do an unassisted pull up, drop pant sizes, train consistently, or compete in an athletic event, we all have reasons why we are here.
The once blank goal board is finally starting to fill up with everyone’s reason for being here. What is yours? Write it down on this board, put a date when you want it accomplished, look at it every time you walk in, cross it off once completed, and set a new one for yourself. Continue to grow daily, become better than you were the day before, and reach your goals.
I want to see this board filled up to where there is no more room to write. Grab a pen and make it happen.
