People that can regulate their engagement, live more joyful lives.
In most cases, the reality is that, we simply weren’t aware of all the years of work, growth, failure, adjustment, struggle, and evolution leading up to the moment they caught traction.
The more we work on ourselves, the more direct and genuine we can be at others, meeting them where they’re at.
In most cases, by focusing on the things we want them to do, we get them to where we want to go faster.
Communication can improve, and further progress can be made, when we remember that we are emotional creatures.
When we accept that we have so much to learn, and often make decisions based on evolution and with limited information.
When we take a little extra time to better understand others views.
Ignoring our past experiences is foolish, and often leads us to repeat the same mistakes throughout life.
When we embrace the complexity of humans, we give ourselves permission to be present and open, instead of trying to put singular labels on ourselves, our emotions, and others we encounter.
So Harden the Fuck Up, and Open the Fuck Up.
Be tough, be vulnerable, work hard, rest hard, feel pain, feel joy.
When we keep the majority of our focus and energy in one area, we make progress.
If we keep that energy there for a significant amount of time, we can start to gain tons of momentum, and really solidify things.
This reigns true in life, in training, and in coaching.
Facing fears and discomfort, willingly and meaningfully, is the key to endless possibility.
