June 3rd, 2018.
It may have been a seemingly ordinary day for most people.
It was a very special day for me.
On that very day ten years ago, I completed the first workout on what would become the most successful journey into changing my life I could ever have imagined. (And at the time I had no idea just how successful and profound this journey would become.)
Most people that meet me today have a hard time believing where I began. Heck, sometimes I look back and have a hard time believing how far I’ve come.
Ten years seems like a impossible amount of time; literally an eternity. Yet interestingly, ten years can also fly by in the blink of an eye. Today, I’m celebrating and reflecting on my past ten years–my metamorphosis and my rebirth.
People will often talk themselves out of making big changes because they think it will take too much time. What many people fail to realize: that time is going to pass anyways. Most likely you’ll still be around in another ten years. You could either be worse off than you are now, or you could be reborn into the person you literally dream about becoming.
I’m not special. I like to think I have a pretty good head on my shoulders, but I’m not extraordinary. Heck, as most of my clients will attest I can’t even count well.
Here’s the secret the world doesn’t want you to know: extraordinary people aren’t born.
Being an extraordinary person is the product of the choices you make on a daily basis. Society wants you to be normal because having too many extraordinary people would break the system and create chaos. Society has done a tremendous job of making you believe you’re stuck with what you’ve got.
And statistically, most people will continue to believe this for their entire lives. Only the “outliers” will prevail to do something truly great. The thing about outliers is that somebody’s got to fill the slot.
Why not you?
Let my story inspire you to begin your journey. Choose to be an outlier; the person people call crazy, weird, and unrealistic. Be the best damn human being you can be.
In other words, as one of my clients so eloquently put it,
“You only get one life, one body, and one chance to make it count.”
Simply, make it count.
