Thanks for stopping by and the kind words!This story is absolutely unbelievable. My full respect to you bro. How are you today? You have really inspired me! I would love to know more about how you are doing
I am living the dream I dreamt years ago -- ended up in a small coastal town where scenic beaches are a 20 min drive away, lots of trails and nature to be found. I've decided to slow down and give myself time to rest and regroup and heal the battle scars that I took on during the first war. After failing 3 times this year already to go fastlane, I realized this is not something you "try and see how it goes". It requires the same level of grit as the previous war -- you don't turn up one day on the Olympic track and "see how it goes". You fix a goal in your mind -- about winning that gold and then you train backwards from that point in the future to the moment you're at -- deliberately, unceasingly until you WIN -- on the days you want to and the days you do not want to. This kind of work ethic requires a very strong WHY and a full tank of gas. I am taking the time to refill this tank as I pick up new skills in the meanwhile. Also going to be welcoming my son next year in this paradise and I hope to spend lots of time with him!
This year has also been one of the most profound years of my life. The "f*ck this" moment that MJ talks about in his book happened to me -- its an excruciatingly painful, core-shaking experience and nothing is the same again once the shift has happened. I don't know what I am going to do yet but I just know that awareness of my current situation has become very very painful -- life is slipping by while my unrealized dreams wander the halls of the underworld and haunt me every waking moment. I cannot die with them unrealized and I will throw everything I have on one stake of events to win, fail, and then try again. I wish there was another way, but I don't see any.
