23 Mar SEALFIT 20x / SECURED
As I’m writing this I’m on a Flight back home after an INTENSE Day at SEALFIT 20x yesterday.
I’m still at a loss for words right now about this experience, possibly because my entire body is intensely sore and with just a few hours of sleep last night, but I will say that I’ve done a few things in my life that have involved some pain, but i will admit, this was the most Challenging/Painful experience of my life.
I have so much respect for the Trainers and others that I was able to share this experience with.
To be trained by 6 Navy Seal trainers through this grueling experience was truly a life changing event that I will bring back so many incredible lessons.
And to see the way that our squads united and fought for one another and pushed each other to keep going when it was its hardest, was so amazing.
Some people ask me why I do some of the things I do, and I’ve gotten that question a lot since I signed up for Sealfit.
to BE MORE
You see, at my core, I’m rarely content.
I have a desire to BE BETTER.
I want to be a better Husband.
I want to be a better Father.
I want to be a better Friend.
I want to be a better Businessman.
I want to be a better Real Estate Investor.
I want to be a better Coach/Mentor.
I want to Grow & Expand to experience and become all that God has for me and for me to share during this life.
But what many people don’t understand, or understand and simply avoid is that in order to experience true growth, learning and insight, we have to Experience Pain.
Pain is the greatest teacher there is.
Success doesn’t provide the insight the way Pain does.
In order for me to become the Man I’m striving to be, I need to know my capabilities and I have to be able to stare down Fears that I have until they are gone and it’s time to move to the next level.
In order for me to be the Man that I desire to be for others, I need to be able to stand in the Gap when they are experiencing pain/challenges. So I choose to step into these arenas so I can be there when they are going through their challenges and wanting to give up.
At the end of the day, we are only given 1 life.
Wherever you’re at in life, don’t avoid the Work & Pain you may be avoiding, because you just may find the Freedom you’re seeking when you choose to step into this place.
All the best,
