Here in Arizona they finally opened the gyms back up this week and I found myself with a renewed sense of urgency, motivation, and passion to get my ass up and make sh*t happen.
So there I was, looking at 4:15 AM on the clock this morning, tired, sore, and ready to toss some iron around and get after it.
It's GO time!
Set after set, sweat started to pour down my face and soak my shirt. Tired, sweaty, and feeling great, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and read the words across my chest...
ACTIONS > WORDS
They began to play on a loop in my mind and I couldn't help but think about the bold and beautiful souls who inspire me to #DOBETTER every day. The men and women who have had a powerful and positive impact on the world.
The independent thinkers who don't subscribe to the status quo. The ones that go against the grain and always stand up for what is right! The doers who face adversity with grace and walk into the storm head-on taking massive action in spite of fear, doubt, or uncertainty!
It's TRUE leadership!
That's why I wholeheartedly believe the only "secret to success" in this life can be summed up in one word...
Massive, relentless, unyielding ACTION regardless of how you feel or what's going on around you. Massive action is the cure-all! It's the great equalizer and has the power to radically transform ANY & EVERY area of your life.
Out of shape? Get to work!
Broke? Get to work!
Relationship struggling? Get to work!
Of course, you MUST be taking meaningful action, the right strategy is critical.
Educate yourself, get help, seek counsel, and then act. Action is the MOST important aspect of all growth and achievement.
You can't hide from it.
You can't deny it.
You can't escape it.
ACTIONS > WORDS
2020 has been a crazy year. It's challenged us in ways we've never imaged and that's exactly why I felt compelled to write this email to you this morning so I wanted to write this message to you today because life is HARD!
Many don't wanna admit that, but we both know it's true and the truth is, I'm glad it is (and you should be too)! I'm glad because what comes easy doesn't last and what truly lasts never comes easy.
For me, 2020 is a reminder that we can do everything right and still get f*cked!
(Excuse my french, I'm VERY passionate about this stuff!) We don't have control of what goes on outside of us...
But you absolutely control how you react and respond! The keyword is, RESPOND.
The COLD-HARD-HARD-TO-HEAR-TRUTH is regardless of what's going on around you, you are ALWAYS in control of the actions you take (or don't take) and those actions determine everything!
So, I wanted to remind you that no matter where you are at this moment it's your actions, day in and day out, will define where you go from here.
They define your character...
They communicate your values...
And they absolutely determine your success (or failure)! So, regardless of where you are at right now, you have the POWER to change everything. Get clear on what you want and then take massive action!
I'll leave you with this...
In life, you can GO as far as you're willing to GROW!
The best is yet to come. If this resonated with you, leave us a comment and let me know! We are here to support you any way we can and if reminders and messages like this help, we will send them more often ;-)
If this hits home for you, please forward it to someone else who might need to hear it today.
