“Wood” (Would) People

People often tell me that they want to work up to training with me.

It’s weird, you know?

I mean people will sometimes call me up out of the blue and tell

Me about their life story before they inevitably end the conversation

With something like “…but I’m not ready yet…”


Now I get it, I’m not unreasonable.

Sometimes you think you’re ready, but then you’re not

But we’re talking about perpetually getting ready to get ready here.

Let’s talk about going from thinking about growing

To ACTUALLY growing


Imagine the mighty oak tree for a second

That tree started from an acorn.

Something so small, it could fit in the palm of your hand



It has to start underground.

It pushes through dirt, survives harsh conditions


Yet never complains once about the situation it’s in.

It just simply grows.



If it had time to think about what it could have, I’m sure

We’d see oak houses all over this planet

In fact, I’d be willing to bet that there’s some kind of planet

Out there where the trees live indoors and the people are trees.


IDK, but I’d like to think of myself as like those wood people

Because I believe that trees grow so tall and live so long because

Trees don’t judge each other or criticize themselves, they just grow.


I would like you to consider how much you would grow

If you simply believed it was possible.


If you knew a way that would always take those inner fears and 

Expose them to be the lies that they are as you smash your goals

While continuing to grow like a tree on fertilizer steroids.


There is a way and it’s simple, but not easy.

Like the mighty oak, we must simply decide that we are always 

Ready to grow to the next stage.


 I would like to invite you to contact me if you are ready to grow

I don’t charge anything, I’m just looking to help for right now.

P.S. Got wood? Ha I couldn’t resist. No, but seriously. 

There are a lot of people that talk about how they 

Could have, or should have, or are about to get to the next level

But they unfortunately get stuck (or maybe rooted) because of

Their excuses. Don’t be like those “would” people…ahhh I migh

Be on to something there…grow like a tree not like “would.” That

Could be a t-shirt TBC.
