Motivational Monday!

Yesterday, I drove down to James Madison University to visit my daughter whom I had not seen since her Christmas break. At the last minute, Doug couldn’t join me so I had to make the 5-hour trek by myself. I spent the day before the drive, knowing I had to do it all by myself, in some internal mental distress. I perseverated on all the things that could go wrong—not the healthiest mental exercise I could have fixated on.

The actual 5-hour ride looked nothing like the one I had pictured in my mind. It was actually a fantastic ride. The weather was almost 100% perfect. I didn’t get tired at all. I had two great stops that were easy on-off experiences. I called a few people I hadn’t spoken to in a while. I finished a book on Audible. And I started a podcast with Impact Theory that featured Lewis Howes and I learned a lot. So the day of worry was a complete waste of time.

What are you afraid to start? What seems daunting to you? Have you, like me, created a story in your head that is keeping you from moving forward? I get it, I had my own wildly creative, yet massively unhelpful, story in my mind. But what I found to be true during my long journey was a few things: getting started is the hardest part, breaking it up in bite-size chunks is helpful, and keeping your eyes focused on the end result is important. You’re braver than you think. You can do anything you want in life—ANYTHING!

LET’S GO! WE GOT THIS!
