Blunt talk is a foreign language that speaks of Good Inspiring News Only. Few people speak it because of the way it sounds – different. You won’t hear it very often in real-life because like most things that are different, people fear blunt talk until they’ve experienced it, lived it, and seen it. Blunt talk challenges conventional thinking to determine what is real and what is not, what is fiction or non-fiction, what works out and what doesn't work out. But its sole purpose is "Soul Purpose"… to help you achieve the purpose of your soul which is “To Lift.” We have all received the gift of lifting – of being lifted by other people and the potential to lift the world. We have an obligation to share our God-given gifts and talents instead of burying them alive. Blunt Talk will help you do just that by answering the questions you’ve asked for decades: How to get your dream job; how to get in top shape physically and mentally by losing fat in body, mind, and soul; how to get motivated. All the questions you’ve asked for decades. Blunt Talk Podcast doesn’t tell you what to do but it will inspire and direct you listen to host Gino Arcaro lead his guests through their "lifting," real-life stories of success.  #Peace

Fighting fat is never easy but the fight gets tougher the older you get. Who wins the fight between you and fat determines how old you feel, regardless of what it says on your birth certificate. The fight with fat is a complex #process but is starts with how you take it – you have to take it personally. Fat fighter has a dual meaning. Both will be explained in this show. Today’s guest is Dr. Darryl Garner who shares his current workout journey to surpass the shape he was in as a competitive athlete.

The difference between winning and losing is limits – the ones you break and the limits that break you. You either break limits or limits break you to pieces. It’s one or the other. Limits are self-imposed obstacles that are allowed to win mind games. The good news is that anyone can break the limits that hold them back. The bad news is that it takes #TheProcess that not everyone is willing to go through. #peace

The difference between a fulfilled life and empty life is what you serve and protect. Your either serve only yourself and only protect your own assets or you serve and protect others. The greatest reward is not material possession. The greatest reward is serving and protecting others. Today’s guest is Annel Carballo, an X Player who shares his 10-year career in the military, explaining #TheProcess he endured including his athletic career to build mind, body, and soul to help him survive his military duties and assignments. #peace

#TheProcess includes countless variables that make you or break you. Insecurity is one of the top ten obstacles that can block our potential. Worse, it manifests in the C-word, a concept that was introduced in previous podcasts and will continue in this episode. Insecurity has a dual meaning if you insert a space between “in” and “security.” Public safety has always been challenging but the challenges in the 21st century were not contemplated even in the recent past. Today’s guest is Kevin Ling, another X Player who has undergone #TheProcess in athletics, fitness, the private security industry, and entrepreneurship. Kevin shares insights and practical lessons learned from his unique, wide-ranging career. #Peace

The difference between winning and losing, between success and failure, is how you handle the highs and lows of #TheProcess. The ethos of #TheProcess is the highs you lift to and the lows you crash to. You won’t escape experiencing them but you have to escape the side-effects of bot the high and lows that, unless you take measures, will flatten you and keep you flattened. Today’s guest is Tim Soules, another X Player who shares the highs & lows of his #Process to help others reach their full potential despite adversities and obstacles. #peace

High achievement is not reserved for the rich and famous. High-performers are not born, they’re made. We are all born with God-given gifts and talents that form our potential. No exceptions. But potential doesn’t just actualize by accident, randomly, or overnight. Potential is actualized through #TheProcess. No one attains full potential developed for free. Even the super-gifted and super-talented have to develop potential through #TheProcess. The good news is that #TheProcess is available to everyone. The bad news is that not everyone is willing to go through it because the main element of #TheProcess is reality, and reality hits hard. Highs, lows, lows, highs. How you respond determines what you become and and how high you reach. The next three episodes feature three X Players – Tim Soules, Annel Carballo, and Kevin Ling – who will share their stories of how they went through #TheProcess and how they responded when reality hit. #peace

When paths are crossed, an impact is always made, good or bad, to a small degree or a large degree. #TheProcess guarantees that you will experience some degree of culture shock. The difference between winning and losing, between success and failure is the effect that culture shock has on you and your response to it. Today’s guest is Carlton Linton, another X Player who shares the extreme culture shock he experienced during his athletic #process and professional #process. #peace

The elusive ‘big game’ is pursued in every field. Reaching the ‘big game’ in whatever you do takes a #process that usually looks like and feels like hell. You have to go through hell to get to any ‘big game’ and then some more hell to win it. Thank you to Tommy Denison of the G.T.A. All-stars football team and T.J. Williams of the Ottawa Invaders football team for being interviewed on Blunt Talk Podcast to preview the Northern Football Conference championship game this Saturday. #peace

The greatest reward is lifting souls. No material possession will ever provide a greater reward. The soul of a lifter strives to build strength in mind, body& soul. Lifting souls, lifting weights, and lifting higher are all connected, forming integral elements of #TheProcess. Today’s guest is another X Player and business owner, Jamie Grabell, who explains #The Process that helped him beat enormous odds to become one of the first Canadian linebackers to get to a USA college in the 80s. Jamie was another #‎Groundbreaker literally and figuratively who worked out in #‎TheBasement in the 80s. #TheProcess was the difference between something and nothing, that no student-athlete would go through today, day-in, day-out, for years. It had to be experienced to be believed. Jamie also explains how he became a successful entrepreneur and business owner when no one believed in his ideas. #TheProcess is a 3-month series on Blunt Talk #Podcast with X Players who explain the true meaning of old-school training and practice. We’re going to bring it back. #‎peace

Parents dream of their children making it to the pros. Student-athletes dream about playing in the pros. But there is a Process that can’t be circumvented. Today’s guest is another X Player, Jeff Benoit. Jeff explains The Process he endured to become one of the first Canadian running backs, in the 80s, to get a scholarship to an American university. #Groundbreaker literally and figuratively. Working out in the #basement – old school – in the 80’s had to be experienced to be believed. It was the difference between something and nothing. It was part of The Process that none of today’s student-athletes would go through – day-in, day-out, for years. The #Process is an ongoing series on Blunt Talk #Podcast with X Players who explain the true meaning of training and practice. We’re going to bring it back.  #peace

Leadership challenges are not created equal. Leading businesses, organizations, and governments is tough but it’s not the toughest leadership job. Today’s episode discusses the toughest leadership job of all – parenting, coaching, teaching, mentoring, developing young people to reach their full potential. This episode introduces the next three guests who were #groundbreakers, high-performing student-athletes who started from scratch and become #groundbreakers who paved the way for others to the next level. They did it by raising the bar – triple meaning. High-performance doesn’t just happen. Neither does #groundbreaking. It takes raising the bar. #Peace

The fear of being different is the difference between making a difference and making no difference. We all share a common calling – to make a difference, to use our potential to make a difference in lives in order to change the world for the better. Those who made a difference in our lives chose to be different. They overcame their fear of being different to lead the way. Today’s guest is X Player Tom Denison, one of our ex-quarterbacks who became a record-breaking high-performer. His back-to-back Hec Crighton awards, symbolic of the best Canadian university football player, led Tom to a being signed as a pro in the CFL. Tom endured The Process in a way that has to be heard to be believed. #Peace

Today’s guest is Doug Pawson, ex-Niagara X-men Quarterback. Doug explains his academic journey, one that is on course to adding a fifth degree in the very near future. Five degrees is unheard of! It takes special persistence to earn five degrees but it can be done. The need for intellectual fitness is the same as the need for physical fitness. Both, when strived for, will change your life, and raise your IQ. Intelligence quotient, has a different meaning for today’s show. It represents the motivating force behind host Gino Arcaro’s life-long learning and fitness commitment. If you want to motivate you children to excel in school, listen to Doug Pawson’s academic journey. #peace

“The Process” is the natural struggle that all achievement must pass through. No achievement just happens. Achievement doesn’t happen overnight, accidentally, or randomly. Achievement is dependent on high performance, a level of performance that many strive for but not all reach. This episode starts a series of interviews with X Players – dual meaning – ex-student athletes I’ve coached, who went through the X Fitness/X-Men Football Process. Football was a part of The Process in each of these X Players’ lives, but only a part. The lessons they learned are transferable to any field – sports, business, academics, career, and personal life. We didn’t invite those who have gone on to achieve money and fame as it’s traditionally defined. We invited Grassroots Successes to tell their story. Listen as they explain their personal journey through The Process as well as subsequent achievements on and off the field. #peace

Why we attack ourselves and how we do it is a #Process within a #Process. Every challenge has degrees of difficulty that we make more difficult with self-destructive habits. Today’s episode continues the discussion of the fight against self-sabotage. #peace

There are many ways to commit self-sabotage. Each way has its own distinct ethos, a characteristic that makes it unique. But ironically, they all accomplish the same goal: get in the way of progress and move us away from what we’re supposed to achieve and who we are supposed to become. It’s easy to dismiss self-sabotage as fate or destiny. The hard part is acknowledging that you have control over it, starting with accepting responsibility to self and to the teams of people you live with, work with, and who depend on you. #peace

Every career, business, and sport carries an obligation to be “fit for duty.” You owe it to yourself and your team; it’s your responsibility. Being fit for duty ties in with the self-sabotage series because it involves being fit in body, mind, and soul. Your organization depends on being fit for duty. Without it, accountability ceases to exist. Being unfit for duty constitutes the highest level of neglect. Today’s guest is Peter Cicalo, ex-police officer, entrepreneur, and marathon runner who is training for his first ultra-marathon. Peter shares insights about how he changed his life and how he started in his running career after a life-threatening illness. #peace

Commercial Quote from
Soul of a Lifter by Gino Arcaro

Jun 1, 2015

The source of failure in any field comes from within. We are our own worst enemy. Self-sabotage is self-defeating behaviour. You can’t win at anything personally or professionally until you overcome self-defeat. The competition you face every day in business or on the athletic field is nothing compared to the opponent inside you. No one is exempt. Defeating self-sabotage takes a fight. In this, the first episode in the self-sabotage series, the starting point in winning the fight from within is explained. #Peace

You either stay in the running or you drop out. “In the running” has a dual meaning. First, it means that you have to keep chasing what you are competing for. Staying in the running is the key to competing for a job, a promotion, business success, or reaching the next level athletically. Secondly, staying in the running helps you lose fat and prevent obesity, propelling you to get into top shape and stay there. Fighting to stay in the running takes next-level self-discipline. Otherwise, it’s too easy to give up when adversity strikes. Today’s guest, expert runner Janice Arcaro, introduces basic strategies to help you stay in the running while touching on another important topic for student-athletes and their parents: the opportunities to be “discovered.” All of this ties into the central theme of Blunt Talk: realize your full potential instead of wasting it. #Peace
