Unfortunately for those from that side of the globe they were labeled soft, mainly because of a single trait that infected the league —flopping. 

Flopping is like finding a loophole that gets you out of a jam, then suddenly, everyone exploits that same loophole for their personal gain. I feel a sense of embarrassment every time I see players do it. The funniest part, is witnessing players act tough, as though they  want to fight, 2 minutes after going down like they were hit by a sniper round.

 I can’t even blame the new generation (you’re off the…

All About Healthy Choices

Positive-or-Negative smaller

Attitude is an interesting word that has a profound impact on our emotional well being. It can work in our favor or impede our ability to grow and develop. Surprisingly, many people with “good” attitudes often possess an over abundance. Conversely, many people with “bad” attitudes suffer from such significant positive emotion deficit, their attitudes create great self harm.


When it comes to good health, those with GOOD ATTITUDES do what is necessary to achieve the quality of life they choose. They do not place stipulations and terms to achieve their goals.
