Crack Theory: Real Motive Behind “The Jenna Thing”

Alison meets Jenna for the first time before going to Noel’s Halloween party and sees that she’s going as Lady Gaga. This new girl who is beautiful as the same person she’ll be? Alison quickly makes sure she tells Jenna she’ll be Lady G and she has to go as someone else.

At the party, she notices Jenna not only didn’t listen to her but outshined her as Lady Gaga, making Alison look like some biker chick with a wig.

So, she tried to subtly let Jenna know who runs things in RW, offering her in a spot in her circle (this way, Jenna will always be under her)

But Jenna answers to no one.

Being boldly rejected, Alison begins the salt. Nobody rejects Alison.

And on top of all that…..Jenna was flirting with Emily…something Alison peeped immediately and wanted to shut down before anything even started

All of that wrapped up, in just one night, Alison was threatened by Jenna’s dominate presence, the possibility of she dethroning her, and Emily “her girl crush” becoming interested in someone new aka Alison’s real motive for “The Jenna Thing”. Toby “being a creep” was just a cover story in order for her to message to send Jenna.

4 Lessons From “The Greatest”

On 3 June 2016 one of the greatest and most inspirational sportsmen in history died.

For years I have read and watched everything I could find about him.

These are the four most powerful lessons and thoughts I learned from “The Greatest”…   

First of all YOU have to see it.. 

“Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision.“

Ali knew that he is made for greatness. He deeply believed that he is (going to be) the best there is in his sport - and he was never shy to let the world know… But apart from all the rhymes and jabs - he was a master of the inner dialog, the maestro of his own mind. 

He saw greatness when nobody else saw him at all. 


We are all salesmen

Ali was a sales genius marketing his own brand - long before the word personal brand was even invented. You wanna know what that looked like: 


But don’t get that wrong: all the bragging would not have had the effect that it had, hadn’t his actions followed his words! But it started with the show and the marketing. He managed to become a famous person, a hero, a media phenomenon and a sports brand respected and admired for decades - to the very last day of his life and beyond.

(His worlds would not have been enough to do so - that is for sure. But his boxing wouldn’t have either.)


Preparation is everything

"The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”

He trained like a machine (hating every minute of it). He was disciplined and mentally strong. Not just a showman. He delivered. And he only could because of his relentless preparation regime.

An example:

Once asked for the number of situps he does in a normal workoput he replied: “I have no idea. I start when it starts hurting.”


Being great inspires greatness in others 

Ali became more than a boxer. He became a legend, a world known brand and an icon. 

Because of his success, his personality and his courage…

I have no idea if Ali knew what we do today - but in retroperspective he managed to inspire athletes all around the plantet across all kinds of sports and over decades. He ispired sports brands, managers as well es school kids to believe in their their goals and to work hard.

To take away:
You may not box like Ali, you may not float like a butterfly or dance like the heavy-weight champ…

… but you can believe in yourself, market your band, prepare and perform like him!

And you can inspire those around you - by being The Greatest version of you!

Your m - dancing, floating, stinging…

you weren’t born in a thunderstorm and
heavens didn’t shake when you let out your first cry,

but you learned how to make lightning out of nothing
and you shook the heavens all on your own.
