Anytime Life Gets Hard It Means You Leveled Up.

Anytime life get hard it means you have leveled up. This statement has been like a warm blanket on a cold day for me. Getting my coaching business going has been successful and trying. Like playing a game where and you just beat a boss and now you have started a new stage. You have all your skills, weapons, and knowledge you are now just taking on bigger bad guys, beasts, and uncovering new areas.

I have leveled up a few times in my life. Promotions in the Marine Corps, promotions in jobs and career changes. Every time I have moved there has been a steep learning curve. I took on jobs that were bigger than I thought I was and every time I figured it out. It wasn’t easy but we all know the saying if it was easy everyone would do it.

I think this is why people stay doing the things they hate. They don’t believe they could handle it if they were to level up. The truth is they can, they are just afraid of whom they will become along the way.

I look at it this way. Each time you level up you know you have bigger more badass weapons coming your way. Stuff that you haven’t even thought of and each level has unique tools to take on its challenges. That stuff excites the hell out of me. It helps me understand that shit is going to get tough. Odds are I am going to get my teeth kicked in a few times. At the end of the day, it’s about the grind of the level and learning to play with your new skillsets.

Your leveling up. Remember at the start of the level shit is tough you have to figure the right lanes and the new equipment. The equipment doesn’t appear you have to break shit and blow some shit up to make it happen. You may even have to start over a few times. Either way, you have to keep moving forward towards the next boss and learn how to kick his ass. Sometimes the right teammates can give you tips to get better at the level this is why we have coaches, masterminds, and mentors.

Go through life trying to hit the max level in your game. Become the #1 in the world of being you. I think you will be surprised how badass you are and what you can accomplish.

What I Learned From Journaling

For years and years, I fought against journaling. Gurus, coaches, and mentors told me I need to journal. However, no matter what I tried I just couldn’t make it work. Not Journaling continued to frustrate me, so I gave up.

However, we know life happens. At one point when my career had hit a low on guidance from my coach, I decided to change my mindset and figure out journaling. I realized I was journaling to prove it didn’t work. I was trying to write from the mentality of limitations vs. a mindset of self-development.

This slight change of journaling to prove it would work helped tremendously. As I began to journal I found that I had too much crap rolling around in my head. I was bitching and moaning more about life than I thought I was, and I was more frustrated that I realized.

As I began to write, I was able to put a perspective on my gremlins and find unique ways to beat them back. My head trash became less of a thing to slow me down and more of a challenge to conquer.

As I continued to change my mindset, everything began to change as well. My perspective on life got more positive and real, and I became a less negative person. I grew more intuned with myself than I had in years past and ultimately I began to like myself. It was a fresh experience, and I started to explode in my career.

Every day I was journaling I was learning new insights and becoming more genuine and real. Life became fun, and everyone around me saw a vast difference.

What I learned from journaling was life is good. Life is great and every day is a good day. My personal demons are not that scary and I am who I want to be. I challenge you to start journaling, and maybe you can have this breakthrough discovery too.
