This is the 4th year we have hosted a Pushups for Charity event here in Coppell. Since we’re one of over 113+ events happening all across the country on May 18th, I thought today would be a great opportunity for me to share a little more about what I push for…

…and also open up the door for you to share a little about what YOU push for too.

NOTE: If you’re not signed up for a PUC event yourself, get in on the fun and do pushups with me next Saturday by joining my virtual team here! At the bottom of this post are the 4 ways you can help even if you’re not in Coppell.

90 seconds… and you can do it anywhere, your garage, in a park, whatever!

Join in and get some!

My family

My Grandfather, Edgar Weldon Linder, was Pilot in the Air Force. He actually dropped troopers on D-Day in Normandy. He made it back safely after the war and he lived until 1973, two years before I was born.

He ended up raising four great kids. Through the years and after many family reunions, I realized just how special my Grandfather was.

He was a man of very deep faith  and touched all those that were a part of his life.

Freedom and Independence
(for myself and all those I have the honor to serve)

So the first part of “why I push” is my family. I always want to remember and honor my Grandfather.

The second part of why I push is for the great ideals of Freedom, Independence, and the American Dream… which is also very closely connected to our military and my own entrepreneurial journey.

My journey also includes leading other men (and women) to fight for their health and fitness. Which is why I have chosen to live a life to help look, feel, and perform better. Which allows them to be better wives, husbands, fathers, mothers, and be more productive each and every day.

So I push for all of THEM… and for YOU!

To give back and say thank you

The third reason I push is to give back and say “thank you” to ALL of those who have served and fought for the same values and country I love. For me, this is the only way I can give back and give back big.

I have chosen a different path in my life to pursue business rather than a military career.

But I NEVER forget that the only reason I’m able to enjoy the freedom and independence I have as an entrepreneur and American citizen today is because of the many generations of great men (like my grandfather) have laid down their lives for us.

I have tremendous gratitude for the debt we owe our forefathers.

I hope in some small way I can honor all those who serve and have served our military with my efforts and contributions through Pushups For Charity.

For me, this is my way that I can give back and know that being able to lead others from my community is allowing me to reach and help more people than doing something on my own.

What Do You Push For?

I think one of the MOST important things you can do for yourself as a human being… is to really get clear about who you are and what you push for.

Part of that may be wrapped up in your family history and people who have played an influential role in your life.

What do you push for?

What (if any) connections do you have to a life of service and/or the military in your own life or family?

Please add a little bit to the comments below.

You ADD to your own personal power and confidence when you share your story with others.
