Hey Team...

Over the past few days, a strong lesson was reinforced for me...

DO NOT CHASE CERTAINTY, CHASE YOUR DREAMS.

You see, so many of us spend a majority of our life creating safe and secure situations for ourselves...

We work more...

We work hard so we can can create financial stability (certainty)...

We workout, exercise, and eat right to create better health (certainty)..

We focus on our relationship with our significant other so we can create a healthy home and a lifetime of great memories (certainty)...

But, what if we are not doing these activities because we truly LOVE the activities that lead to a great place of certainty, but, we are doing them strictly to check the certainty box and to make US feel more stable, safe, and secure... CHECKING THE BOX..๏ปฟ๏ปฟ

And, we are not doing the real things that light us up, because, well, they just are not as certain in their outcomes?

I write this today because of the recent passing of KOBE, and, a day later, the recent passing of my friend, Matt "DEZY" DiStefano...

If we learned anything, there is really no certainty in life...

SO, why not stop chasing it and allow yourself to do and go after what you are truly 100% into?

Why not spend each day on a mission?....

Focused on making an impact...

Inspiring. Motivating. Encouraging those around you to be great... but, starting the conversation with yourself.

Safety. Security.

It is a false reality.

That can change at any moment..yet, many spend the majority of their life chasing it.

Free yourself of that.

Liberate yourself of that.

Then, for the first time in your life for many, or since childhood, you can loosen up and stop trying to control anything and everything...

If we learned anything from the events above, it is that we really are not as powerful as we think... and, we really do not control much.

Live your life with great character, great values, a great mission, conviction, and belief in what you stand for and what you are here to do....

Then, flip a coin on the rest.ย 

You will be surprised how LIVING WITH PURPOSE and LIVING ON PURPOSE can truly take you EXACTLY where you want to go and where you should be going...

Let's GO!

Win the day!

Your Coach,ย
