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.
