This week on Talk Up Tuesday I talk about Access 52! Michael Chiasson
I always find inspiration from Michael, whether it be a short conversation or watching one of his many videos. I am in awe of the work he does and have seen first hand how his style and demeanor can change a child or adults outlook and attitude after speaking with them. His smile and his energy is unwavering. Please check out his links below. I hope he inspires you as much as he does for me.
Access52 started with a mission to reach at-Risk and disengaged youth. Inspiring students to engage in their reality has developed into helping school communities, families and relationships discover a greater purpose. Through years of experience Access52 has created unique, dynamic, high energy and visually attractive events to inspire youth to discover their place and conviction.
Michael has spoken at over 500 events around the world to over 100,000 students, parents and teachers. He was the recipient of the Shepard Leadership Award in 2016.

My book is available for pre order on Amazon
How did a wee Glaswegian girl from a council estate with a big dream go through some of the most challenging, painful and abusive life experiences anyone can imagine, including childhood sexual abuse and almost dying and still go all the way to reinventing her life and creating the life she truly wants?
It all began with…
Well you'll just have to buy the book to find out (giggle)
One of my main goals with this page is to educate players and help them become responsible for their own careers. I know when I was younger, I was not able to afford any type of individual coaching or training. I had to do all my own research, and create all my own sessions and programs.
This is a simple template to create your own gym session. The format is really simple: Mobility and injury prevention work to keep your body in prime condition. Power work to help you become more explosive. Then the bulk of your session is your compound lift, where you will go heavy with the weight and do some accessory work. Finally, you finish off with some conditioning work to get a good sweat on.
Depending on the day you can plug in different exercises, but the format remains the same. It's one of my favorite setups for athletes.
Any questions, let me know!

Nobody wants to be lonely. Everybody wants to belong to a group. The crowd is essential for the false self to exist. The moment it is lonely you start freaking out. Particularly in the West they have not discovered a methodology to uncover the real. To be an individual is the greatest courage. It does not matter that the whole world is against me. What matters is that my experience is valid. Don’t die before realizing your authentic self.
Two of IIM Raipur's first year students, Anish Mondal and Akshay Dixit, became the First Runners Up of Ace The Waste Competition conducted by the Akshaya Patra Foundation during Eximus, the B-School E- Summit of IIM Bangalore. They came up with a prolific marketing plan to launch the foundation's new initiative - Zero Plate Wastage.
A very hearty congratulations to both of them!
I often get the question of who is your role model? I must say, that I consider myself very lucky to have very inspiring people in my life without whom I wouldn’t be where I am today. Perhaps the most impact anyone has ever has on me is most definitely my Sensei/Coach @nassimvarasteh who also happens to be Senior Head Coach of @karatecanada ... She is the daughter of respectable martial arts grand master, late Shinan Farhad Varasteh who pioneered Karate in Iran and is known as Father of Karate to a nation. She is 2x Vice World Champion, 5x Pan American Champion among other things like being a Youth Olympic Role Model for Buenos Aires 2018. But all of that comes second to her character. She is moral, supportive, humble, kind, caring and all that goes with being a symbol of Women Empowerment. Not only is she a QUEEN inside of the mats, but outside Karate she is an exemplary mother, wife, sister, daughter and a friend to those who know her. We as her students in @karatecanada team and her home dojo students at @kanzenkai , consider ourselves truly lucky to have her. My fellow @kanzenkai team mates would agree! She is truly deserving of everyone’s respect and appreciation and we wish to continue giving back the same effort and care as she unconditionally gives to us. Thank you for everything Sensei Nassim! You are the pride of Karate Canada. 🙏🏻❤️ OSS! 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻

Members from our family want to share how the Lord has changed or impacted their lives! #testimonytuesdays
If you have your own testimony you would like to share we want hear your story also, so comment below!
Don’t forget to like, comment, and share!
there are some people in our life who truly love us everywhen willing to console and soothe us but i believe no matter how much they strive, they can't dissipate the agitation, the fantods COMPLETELY. they'll toil to calm you but after a very short time you'll start feeling twitchy again. the restlessness will occupy you again. the actual power resides in prostration in front of your Lord and in the truest book, Quran ofcourse. the anxiety, the fantods that surrounds me at night diminishes when i offer my prayers and recite the Quranic verses. when I bow down in front of my Lord and talk to Him, it's like the agitation and the fidgety me never existed. SubhanAllah! how beautiful is my Lord and powerful are His precious blessings one of which is Quran. no matter how immensely someone loves you or try to soothe you somehow somewhere the restlessness still exist but when you bow down in front of The King of all, or when you recite Quran even for few minutes, the unpleasant feelings and fantods outright vanish. you actually forget about the unpleasant things making you fidg and you start living in the moment. the appalling feelings or the restlessness dissipates and peace arises the moment you remind yourself of The King of all and His precious powerful blessings making you feel absolutely alright filling your heart with peace and bringing on your visage, a wide smile. SubhanAllah!

Every idea starts with a problem. @warbyparker started when one of 2 students lost his glasses on a backpacking trip. He complained for a few months about the cost of replacing them. Then decided to find a way to offer designer eyewear at affordable prices - also distributing a pair of glasses for free to someone in need for every pair sold.⠀
The secret is to keep exploring. One door closes, another door opens. That’s just how life goes.
