Afraid? I challenge you today.

Stardate: July 11th 2015

This space has been silent for a few months.
On one hand, there was so much going on: My still-new wife, new puppy, and I welcomed a new family member in to the world; My daughter. She was born on June 27th. I worked more over these months. I wrote more (- finishing up my second book), and I performed more. It has truly been a hectic shower of blessings.

On the other hand, it felt like there was very little to say. We were already in a groove: running our businesses, training our pup, meeting deadlines in the timeline we’d set together. Each day basically ran in to the other. I could do it with my eyes closed. Many days, I did just that.

Until today.
I peeked out from under the rock I’d been inhabiting, and I took a look around.

I looked at the people who’d started the year with pomp and positivity… and decided to check in on their progress (- as one of my secret joys in life lies in watching people succeed. It drives me to work even harder).

What I saw, was devastating: Excuses; folded businesses; budding entrepreneurs clinging to their nine-to-five jobs with broken hearts.

It broke my own heart.

But, I understood. I’ve known fear. I live in a pool of it… and wade through it daily.
Nobody believes me when I say this, because they see me taking risks daily. But, believe me: fear is omnipresent.

But, I’ll let you in on a secret: That’s ok.

In my observation: Many of you are Vitamin C(ourage) deficient.
And I say this, not to poke fun at your fear… but to point out that: everybody’s afraid.

Everybody, regardless of what they claim, has doubt.

Fear and courage, aren’t like light and dark though: Both can exist in the same space and instance.

A successful person, however, is someone who chooses to respectfully muffle fear’s omnipresent scream… opting instead to, heed courage’s quiet beckoning, and put one foot in front of the other.

Today, I challenge you to be successful.


Grab that vitamin c(ourage) tab. Pop it.

Pop it… and excel.

Yours in fitness,
