You didn’t come this far to only come this far.
Imagine you have a crazy idea that you can do…well, anything.
Dean Karnazes ran 50 marathons in 50 states on 50 consecutive days. Imagine being on day 49 of such a feat. “I can’t run another marathon. I just can’t.” Yes. But then, he did.
I’m sure there was more than one mile Dean hated. On the 30th marathon. On the 10th. Even on the first. But each time, whether it was mile two in race one or mile 17 in race 43, he remembered: You didn’t come this far to only come this far.
When you have trouble starting, remember how you got to the starting line. When you have trouble finishing, remember how you got close to the goal.
Funny thing about knowing you have more to do. There’s always the inner knowing that you’re not quite done.
No matter how far you’ve come, no matter how daunting the obstacle ahead, there’s always a little more to go. This isn’t sad. It’s life — and simply a reminder of all the great things that lie behind you already — even if, sometimes, these great things consist of small steps.
I have been helping people for a long while and funny thing about it all is that I see and hear people share how good things are and how they’ve got it. When fact is there’s emotion just under the surface ready to bust.
Most people give up and give in to the “overwhelm” of the task and convince themselves that it’s all too much. The mind tricks are so…tricky.
What if you had hacks to untrick the mind before it tricks you…would you even use all the techniques?

Here’s a video I did on Getting Out of Your Mind to Regain Clarity – If you ever feel like you’re just kind of walking around in a haze and you just can’t seem to get things moving or like you’re walking through mud – then this video is for you!
I talk about expecting a different outcome and how tears may wash away some of the mud we feel, but don’t ask us to question the biggest problem of what is it that’s going on underneath?
Usually the answer is something that is around disappointment, discouragement, or having a dis- ease around something, not disease, but dis-ease (not ease).
Fact of the matter is, we’re in a time when we keep thinking it’s going to get better. And the only way it’s going to get better is when we wake up, shake ourselves up, get some help, you know, really look outside of ourselves and ASK for ask for guidance, ask for help., ask for mentorship. You know, ask for things that are gonna help you get to your next level because it will get better only if you get better. And the best way for you to get better is for you to shake things up. Do something radically different!
Are you ready to shake things up?
