Hi Team...

Do you find yourself hesitating at times on making a decision?

You contemplate, play mental ping pong, call ten people, then, finally, well, you still can not make a decision?

This is actually more common than you think.


Why do so many struggle to make decisions?

Well, the #1 reason is that they are worried about the perception of their decision(s).

They are more worried about how others will view the decision than the decision itself.

You see, I believe 100% that we know what we want.

We know deeply what we want but many are afraid to go after it because they are too worried about the externals.

They are too nervous to take the step in the direction of their passion because they are too far down the field.

Meaning, instead of just taking the first step, not caring what others think... 

Not caring that you may not be fully competent, equipped, or financed,  but taking the step anyway.... 

That is how you grow...

That is how we grow...

Taking the chance on yourself....

A few years ago I was at lunch with Alex Rodriguez and he told me, "D, I do not bet on horses, I bet on Jockeys."....

He said this because he fully believes that it is not the externals that make us great...

It is YOU.

You taking a bet on yourself is the best way to succeed at anything that you do.

You just can not worry about what people think as it relates to your life, your path, and your journey...

That is the biggest dream killer... and path to a life filled with regret and anxiety...

We can't have that...

Not for you...

You are a Champion...

Never forget it...

Make the decisions that are right for you and your family...

Let your gut and intuition drive your process...

When you do things that you know intuitively are right, you will live a life of freedom.

Let's GO!

Your Coach,
