I want you to step up in your life and start to do something epic.

Take some action in the direction that scares you, but at the same time, you have a desire to move in that direction.

Because once you start to move in that direction, right, and you can’t just move in that direction, but at the same time, you have to be seeking out mentors (physically and digitally), you have to be reading books (auditorily, go to the bookstore, join a book club, start a book club), you have to be soaking up information about what you want you want to learn about… the things that are going to be on your path.

And then when you set onto that path, when you move forward, when you take action, when you have propulsion in that direction, learn, and hone how to trust your gut, and when you can learn to trust the gut, your core, your heart, when you can learn to trust the deeper part of yourself, that is a very necessary step in the path, in the journey, because when you step onto that path, when you step onto that journey, lots of things, lots of challenges, lots of people, all this kind of stuff is going to come up. And it’s all to help you… but some may where the face of white, and some may wear the face of black… or light and dark, or good and bad.

And you got to trust your gut on what you need to take on and what you need to turn away, and then sometimes you’ll take on something that you thought was light, but turns up being dark, and then you got to break up with it, you got to slash burn it, cut trough it, move forward, and destroy that relationship. Move forward to something that deeper resonates with what you know to be true, but you didn’t at the time that you took on that project/obligation/relationship/etc.

So, not only do you need have the courage to step onto the path, but then as you’re on that path and as you’re progressing forward, constantly be learning, thinking, philosophizing, reading, masterminding, being aware of what’s going on because every single decision and action that you take while on the path helps further of propulsion of the path.

Having said all of that, step on the path and move forward in the direction you want to go.

Know that when you’re scared, but that you also desire, or that when you want, but you’re timid, or have extreme desire, but you don’t think it’s possible, that is the time to act, that is the recognition of growth potential. That is the recognition that it’s time to take action.

If you can condition yourself to take action in those moments, the path will always be shown to you. You will always know the next step.

And if you don’t the next step, if you wait, if you ask of yourself the questions, if you ask of the world around you for guidance, it will be shown… and, moving on this path leads to your greatest self, leads to greatness, leads to an epic, magnificent expression of your existence.

Step onto your path, learn as much as you can, and don’t stop. Just keep moving forward.

Keep progressing, keep learning, keep confronting your fears, working on yourself, doing the deep work.

Keep seeking out that which resonates with your core.

Rock it out, move forward, best of luck and wishes on your epic journey.

Talk to you soon. Be well. Peace.

  1. Love the TMNT shirt.

    How’s the conference?

    • LOL – thanks man :)

      Shot this video late one night before bed. Had to ‘get it off my chest’.

      The conference was amazing. Stayed with some really great people and I really “processed” (and experienced) a lot of data/ideas/clarity/.

      What’s good w/ you.. How’s the summer unfolding?

  2. Good stuff, man! Love the motion at 1:04…looks like the coolest gang symbol in the world…the gang of gut-trusters!

    Speaking of which, this post came at a pivotal moment for me, and I’m going to take the big action that I’ve been timid about tomorrow. Thank you for pushing me in the right direction, man.

    • LOL, nice man! Glad you’re a part of the gut-trusters gang!!

      Tomorrow sounds like a big day man. Make sure you experience it all and learn as much as you can. A day of massive growth is always a good thing! Reminds me of the Starbucks day LOL ;)
