The past few weeks have been an incredible whirlwind as I've:
- been swarmed with consultation calls
- sold out + launched 2 cohorts (3rd group has one spot left)
- attended a life-changing immersion in Austin, TX
- built out content for my 12-week program
- created a free training video (coming soon!)
- hosted 2 Coffee & Cold Plunge events
- hired another coach of my own
- and SO much more
On Friday, I was working on my new training video's landing page and accidentally caught a glimpse of my dashboard.
I just had my biggest month ever since starting PER...
And by 2X!
I called my dad, my uncle, and texted my brother.
I felt like I was floating.
A major pinch-me moment.
For the last 3 years, I've gotten up before the sun and simply committed to improving myself in SOME way each day.
From writing social media posts & newsletters
To designing & launching websites
To figuring out accounting, taxes, & insurance
To building my first coaching programs
To learning how to improve my COACHING & listening skills.
I exhausted myself with podcasts, coaches, courses, books, communities, & writing exercises.
It's been a head-down effort for so long, I forgot what life was like before.
So much has changed in 36 months...
I now meditate each morning to prime my mind to handle this effort with intense focus & minimal stress.
I eat whole, real foods 90% of the time to feel refreshed & energized every day.
I work out 6-7 days a week to have the strength to handle anything life throws my way.
I sleep 8-9 hours a night to be able to train hard & enjoy my work.
I stopped drinking because it started to sabotage the life I was CREATING.
I stopped taking weed gummies because I found better, natural ways to relax & decompress.
I'd be lying if I said I KNEW it would work out.
But I had faith that if I just took care of myself, focused on helping others, and simply looked for ways to improve, it would all be OKAY in the end.
And the more I practice staying ALIGNED with my true self, the more effortless life seems to get.
I simply see this as the starting line.
3 years of testing, tinkering, & showing up every day with a RELENTLESS pursuit to make it happen.
And this was the first, concrete, real moment where I thought "Holy crap, not only are we doing it, this is going to be BIG and impact THOUSANDS of men."
Funny thing is, Sunday I felt a part of me doubting it all.
I could sense my inner critic trying to sneak back into my mind like he's done so many times before.
Telling me it's a fluke and that I need to do MORE or else it'll all fall apart.
Not this time.
My critic hasn't grasped that I'm not fucking around with him anymore.
He doesn't seem to GET that this vision is not about ME.
It's about the men who WANT, NEED, & SEEK help.
Guys who want to be part of something bigger than themselves and live amazing lives.
I can't afford to let him get in the way of that.
I know what it's like to let THAT guy run my life, and I'm NEVER going back to that.
Each time I write, meditate, workout, eat well, avoid alcohol, turn down sugar, turn off social media, hop in the cold plunge, or have the hard conversation...
I prove to myself that I'm in charge.
That I'm not giving this guy an inch.
I know the inner critic will always be there, trying his best to freak me out.
But this mission is way too important to not do every single thing in my power to show up as my best each day.
A few questions for you today:
What is your personal mission?
What is driving you to become your BEST SELF each day?
How are you committed to helping OTHERS improve their life?
You don't have to be a coach or start your own business to have your own answers.
Let me know what you come up with.
