Category : John Davies, USP Labs

As this article is being released the team of dedicated professionals with USPlabs are putting the final touches on a very special initiative to assist the many victims of recent natural disasters in the United States through the services of the Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org/).

If you are not aware starting this Friday, 1 July at 8 am (CST) through to 9 pm (CST) Sunday, 3 July, USPlabs will donate 100% of all proceeds from (domestic U.S) sales at www.USPlabsDirect.com to Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org/) to aid those affected by recent natural disaster.

I am hopeful you take this advantage of this remarkably generous offer, join our team in a sign of solidarity and true strength to reach out to the wonderful people of the affected region.  While there is no way to wipe away the sorrow of so many, this is a positive step forward and proof that as we band together we can make a difference.

For those who join our efforts, a free copy of the e-book “Forever Young; unleashing your beach-body” will be provided. As the title suggests, this e-book includes my recipe for defying age and developing the ultimate of physiques, including a four-week training plan as well as brilliant diet and nutrition section from one of the brightest minds in the industry.

While my name is referenced on this book, I want to stress that I am but one of many in this team to make this offer possible. Each of us are an equal cog in a teams push to reach out with the strong hand of compassion and by you taking part, you equally have a placed your name on the roster.

I am quite earnestly humbled to be involved in such an event and for that matter be associated with the many working together to make this possible. This team of USPlabs is unlike any I have been associated with and while my career is dotted with championships around the world, none shows the cohesiveness and grounded belief structure in ethics and bettering their community far and wide.

By joining this effort, you will not only receive the supplement industries finest products but have satisfaction of joining an extraordinary team and making a stand to help our fellow man. That my friends, is ultimately the greatest feat of strength you can make and I thank you for your leadership.

As always, I remain

In faith,

join our effort to assist Habitat for Humanity

Sport echoes society and equally has the opportunity to uplift it. Through proper mentoring, athletics should promote character traits that go well past the world of sport and exercise, creating leaders of tomorrow.

While throughout my career in sport, I have been given great respect for the teams that I have helped win championships the most rewarding factor is watching athletes fan out in world and teach the great lessons they learned through athletics. It might surprise many that while I have stood in some of the sporting worlds most hallowed grounds and directed legends the greatest reward is watching young men and women become leaders in their community.

For that I have a litany of private stories of quiet heroes, those who have no need for public accolades or their names in lights but simply knowing they did what is right. Quiet heroes, those who will never see their images on posters or talked of their grand playing days but still they lived following the true test of “strength” by reaching out to their fellow man with the open hand of compassion and making our world a better place.

Heroes come in many sizes, shapes and every walk of life and while they may show it countless ways, like the parent reading to their child, a teacher in front of the classroom and the military past and present protecting our freedoms, each has the common ground of helping those less fortunate. Within each of us there is a burning light of greatness that cannot be vanquished, a hero within that defies physical stature and rises up to heights of a giant.

Whether you know the many in harms way during the recent natural disasters in the United States or have seen the countless images in the news, we must join together to help these wonderful people.

Starting this Friday, 1 July at 8 am (CST) through to 9 pm (CST) Sunday, 3 July, USPlabs is offering a very special initiative where all proceeds from (domestic U.S) sales at www.USPlabsDirect.com domestic orders will be donated directly to Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org/) to aid in the devastation from recent natural disasters in the United States.

For those who take part in this extraordinary offer from USPlabs, a free copy of the e-copy “Forever Young; unleashing your beach-body” will be provided. As the title suggests, this e-book includes my recipe for defying age and developing the ultimate of physiques as well as brilliant diet and nutrition plan from one of the brightest minds in the industry.

I am quite earnestly humbled to be involved in such an event and for that matter be associated with the many working together to make this possible. Like any effort of this size there are many pooling their strengths to make it happen, burning the midnight oil behind the scenes and let me tell it is great honour to be a part of this team. Yet this team is not complete and in-fact needs countless more to join and spread the word of this event. Please join our team, take part in this event whether supporting directly through purchases or telling your friends and family of this initiative.

We can and we will make a difference and welcome you join our effort and help many rebuild their lives.

As always, I remain

In faith,

like sheep to the slaughter

Category : John Davies, Renegade Business Network

She wore black not because it was this season’s look or it was featured in the endless log-rolled “newsworthy” stories of celebrities. She would not have cared of such nonsense in her day because she had style and knew that was not something you buy with your already over-burdened credit card but how you looked at life.

Yet style, along with values and “thinking” are sputtering today, a daily death rattle is heard as “tweets” and “status updates” serve as evidence as sheep follow along to what they are told. Thinking, conceptualizing thoughts have become a rare breed as soft lead pencil and tablet were replaced with cut and paste.

If I am too harsh on the epidemic of cut and pasting, then where pray tell are the opinions of many, the right, the wrong and all the in-between? They are missing and in its place, the ever-present cut and paste of a quote and banal commentary where every corner is filled with someone doing sophomoric stand-up without realizing they already are the punch line.

This not so little thing of Social Media has and will continue to change the world. The opportunities of a super connected world defies words but it requires more than cut and pasting, more than a fascination of oh-so darling celebrities and more than a smarmy fascination with this years Lolita.

Style goes well beyond the cut of the cloth or for that matter, why she wore black but of the type of people we are, our walk through life and the not so little thing of joie de vivre. Stemming the erosion of style or that matter quality of life oddly starts with appreciation each another and our world right now is in the ultimate of turning points where the hand of fellowship reaches across the globe in a second.

Have style, engage and share your thoughts and remember, sheep are led to slaughter and later served with mint sauce.

efforts to assist Habitat for Humanity

The broad industry of exercise, health and sports conditioning quite obviously spends a great deal of time on “building strength”. That is quite the understatement as and endless aisle of libraries have been filled with approaches of “building strength” in the modern era.

Yet “building strength” is not simply of the load hoisted but of character built and quite honestly as many have attempted to understand the secret of teams that follow my advice, it is most notably that I believe building leaders comes first.

Strength is not merely measured by the weight room but of character and understanding adversity is something we overcome.

With that said, the iron game must always remind itself that when under the heat of adversity, when many are in harms way we must band together to help those less fortunate. In this manner we show strength that builds leaders and in this case, helps rebuild communities.

As many of you aware many in the United States has suffered horrific losses in recent flooding. No words can express sufficient hope for those who have suffered in the recent natural disaster but simply, we the men and women of this modern iron-game must band together as one and offer our open hand to help.

Starting this Friday, 1 July at 8 am (CST) through to 9 pm (CST) Sunday, 3 July, USPlabs is offering a very special initiative where all proceeds from (domestic U.S) sales at www.USPlabsDirect.com domestic orders will be donated directly to Habitat for Humanity (www.habitat.org/) to aid in the natural disaster devastation that our county has recently suffered.

For those who take part in this extraordinary offer from USPlabs, a free copy of the e-copy  “Forever Young; unleashing your beach-body” will be provided. As the title suggests, this e-book includes my recipe for defying age and developing the ultimate of physiques as well as brilliant diet and nutrition section from one of the brightest minds in the industry.

Quite obviously this is an unprecedented move but the call to action has been sounded and without hesitation, it will be answered and I am proud to be associated with this remarkable offer from USPlabs.

Naturally, extensive information on this leading up to the sale will be provided on  Twitter, Facebook and this blog and I ask you to please stay abreast and join us in this effort.

Again, while there is nothing I can do to truly wipe away the sorrow of many, I ask each reader to help in this effort as we band together and make a difference.

As always, I remain

In faith,

Vampires, Zombies and a truly lost generation

Category : John Davies, Renegade Business Network

The low haze frequency drone you hear is the sound of a generation, lost without guidance in learning what was once common social skills and now titillated with yet another tale of vampire, zombies and any other “entertainment” project a budding Lolita can be cast into.

The sheer banality of what constitutes entertainment and please I cannot bring myself to call it “the arts” reflects the long-term spiral of education in our society as well as plummeting social skills and lack of appreciation of true art. With near pitchfork and burning torch fervour much of the mainstream turns its collective back on the arts and education, gleefully accepting drivel from the media and entertainment sector like the condemned chimp at the zoo barraged by peanuts from tourists. Yet this lost generation who laps up karaoke, gothic tales and anything else they are convinced to embrace via the endless layers of marketing, requite with paid paparazzi to feed the addiction to celebrity’s, are not products of their environment but victims of the lack of true leaders.

Education is far more than building a career and improves all of society and quality of life. While I do not wish to lower the importance of enhancing your career, when education is allowed to erode, hope for the future is merely a pastel coloured dream and another election-day promise that can never come to fruition.

Yet education is not simply fine libraries and galleries but social graces and of particular concern to note, the art of conversation. While the ability to converse as never been greater with the advent of social media on the contrary it seems to be on the verge of extinction. From every corner of the online world, comments and posts are more of street corner vendors announcing their daily offerings or the ever present insightful quotation, proof positive of the brilliant thinking process associated with “cut and paste”.

The route to prosperity, a far cry from those focused on gasping for air in recovery, comes through all approaches to education. Investing in education is the one investment that will always reap large dividends and the only item you cannot go over budget.
