Subconscious programming and conditioning are powerful.
I’ve seen it in many areas of my life now that I’m hyper aware of what it is and how it affects our goals.
Something like strength and condition training can bring any single able body benefit with their health and fitness.
But, we’re often conditioned to think otherwise for whatever reason it may be.
Being a professional athlete for over a decade, people assume I trained outside of my sport but that wasn’t true.
Taking care of yourself and wearing protective gear when you ride isn’t “cool” to a lot of people in BMX and it’s quite sad how I fell into the trap of caring what others thought for so long rather than what intrigued me and I wanted to explore due to being judged.
It’s funny because I get hated on so much now for all the positive changes I’ve made and share but I no longer care and is why I’m seeing so much success in my life.
I can’t thank @jciake and @coachmatthunter enough for all they’ve taught me and how far I’ve come thanks to them in terms of my exercise implementation and passion to do so.
Don’t let outsider noise and distractions control your desires and action, do YOU and remember we’re not responsible for others feelings and actions. Only our own.
Live your life, be aware of the subconscious programming you may be living with and break it down for the life you desire.

Thank you to anyone who was for or against me.
Either way, in support of me or against me, it ultimately led me to where I am today & all I’m doing with my life & for others & I couldn’t be happier.
I’ve fallen in love with the journey while setting new goals every day & keeping my sights always exploring what possibilities there are for my life & my desire I’ve been creating in my mind.
@brianundy & I chatted about this concept of “where your eyes & head go, the rest of your body will follow” concept we have in BMX in regards to learning how to 360 in the beginning.
We were racing exotic cars out here in Vegas yesterday & the driver coaching us in the passenger seat would have to remind us all to stop looking so close in front of ourselves & look forward to where we wanted to go.
Great example of our goals & not getting stuck looking right at where we are but looking forward to what’s next & our new goals.
I talk about this mindset BMX and my hard working family instilled in me at a young age to always pursue what’s next in my life helping me overcome any hardship whether it’s fear, injuries, “failures” or “disease”. That same mindset has allowed me to get to where I am today and build the belief YOU can accomplish whatever you can see in your mind with the belief and persistence to not give up.
Failure only happens when you give up. Giving up doesn’t always mean you stopped pursuing a goal, sometimes it means being self aware enough to change course for the bigger picture / goal for your life and find another route.
This is all to say we have so much support along the way whether we can see it or not. Even the people that didn’t directly support us may have inspired us one way or another.
To be around @brianundy @ryanplowery Terry @magicmaleah @h_kingsbury and the whole @justpruvit family has been amazing and I couldn’t be more grateful for all I’m learning and experiencing.
There’s no such thing as self made and if you’ve read Think & Grow Rich, you understand this.

Pain is inevitable but suffering is a choice we often subconsciously make.
This quote from Ronda Rousey makes so much sense when you really think about it. Pain doesn’t just appear, there’s always a cause whether it be mentally or physically.
When we become self aware and really understand where the pain is coming from in our life, we can make changes and no longer suffer.
Even if we avoid the cause of the pain, the pain turns to suffering mentally longer term in various forms.
BMX taught me how to understand pain and choose my next actions and if I wanted to love with the pain or not.

Manifesting the life you desire is a real thing and I’m living it.
Step one, create the desire in your mind.
Then, you gotta voice it to the universe and really see it in your mind.
Hearing and feeling are powerful sensors involved in this process as well so speaking your desire out loud allows you to hear and feel the words you’re saying.
DOING is one of the most important aspects of manifesting a desire beyond creating the desire initially.
Once you can do this every day in a formal manner, it begins to be second nature and you find yourself in this vibration and energy believing in the desire you’ve created for your life and pushing past fear.
The final step is Prüvit to the world and yourself, hence where action/doing comes in play.
I believe if more people shared the positive in their life, along with the story of how to obtained it, more people would see the potential they posses to create the life they desire.
By Prüving your talk, you’re inspiring others to step into their power and live the life they desire.
The arrow break is a powerful subconscious tool of breaking through fears and mental challenges/blocks.
If you can break an arrow with your neck, what can’t you do?

Have you started towards a goal and found yourself going down multiple paths that don’t really get you any closer to your goal?
I have found as excited I got in the past to learn and try new things, every step away from the original strategy takes us out of alignment.
I’m not saying stay stagnant and in one box, I’m saying I’ve found most success in regards to accomplishing a goal when I stay the course and add the new ideas, concepts and plans to the list to try after some time.
For example, if we’re trying to remove body fat and start on a plan and switch to another plan even 4-6 weeks in, we don’t give it enough time to truly manifest and then get discouraged when we bounce around from plan to plan.
Even with BMX, we can’t try a new trick a handful of times and then move on to another one and expect either to get dialed in a short amount of time if we don’t stay consistent with the process. Once we get the new trick or plan dialed, and see results, we can then add to the plan or just stay the course longer and get it more dialed.
Far too often do we as a society want quick results and miss the long game approach. We’re playing chess here people, not checkers.
We don’t want a success to fizzle out, we want that success to be our new reality long term.

Words are powerful. But our thoughts are even more powerful.
Suggestions come and go every day and it’s our thinking and belief structure that makes those suggestions reality. That is, if we choose to let them do so.
I made a transition in my thinking and belief structure after being told I’d die at the age of 21.
I could have easily given up and accepted the suggestion as my new reality but I couldn’t fathom that as it didn’t align with my life vision.
Our thinking and belief structure combined with action is what allows some to beat the odds and others to wish they could change their reality.
What’s rad is we all can change our reality as long as we believe we can and take the action that aligns with our words.

Following my recent post regarding attempting to “tear others down” to make yourself feel better.
How we treat others is a direct reflection of who we are on the inside in the moment.
I’ve witnessed this over and over again and have had to audit who I was and how I was treating others over the years due to my own negativity I was fostering within myself.
A great thing to focus on is “what’s mine is mine and what’s theirs is theirs” meaning, if you are causing no harm and someone’s sharing negativity back, that’s their bullshit. Not yours.
Being confident enough in our own actions and walking our truth is key to not letting others affect how we feel. Because, when we have an emotional state it leads us to taking action one way or another.
If we are in a negative emotional state, guess what, we’re probably not going to take the action we’re proud of.
You can see with that how others may treat us, or try to, treat us poorly and how it’s on them, not us.
We’re not responsible for how others want to lead their life or their emotional states. We’re only responsible for our emotions and actions.
Own your shit and step into your power.

Will I last until October before I ride again?
Although I intended to wait until October, I’m thinking that isn’t quite what I want to do.
Luckily, I have a ton of trips coming up to occupy me and keep me off my bike further but August has me thinking, haha.
I had a great chat with @createdbybrian today about my decision either way and what’s really “walking my talk” in regards to fearing lack of commitment with what I set out to do.
I’m still fulfilling my purpose, I’m still being 100% authentic and transparent, and I’m doing what’s in my best interest.
Although I have zero desire to compete, I still love the feeling of what I’m able to do on my bike.
That ability is something I’m grateful for and brings up another reason why this topic of ability means a lot to me because some out there can’t use their limb(s), maybe lacks a limb in general, or didn’t wake up today.
Beyond living with brain tumors, I’m alive, healthy, strong, and fully able to ride my bike the way I desire.
Would you like to see me ride again?

Attempting to tear others down to build yourself up…not a good move.
It’s crazy to me how people (even adults older than me) are so insecure and afraid that they feel the need to try (key word, try) to tear others down for whatever reason it is they have deep rooted in themselves. And, to do it over social media to people that look up to them is beyond cowardly and equally hilarious. Funny how insecurity will reveal true colors of an individual. 🤦🏼♂️
Gary V always talks about “I don’t have to tear other building down to create my own” and I see the opposite in the scarcity minded so clearly now.
You can create your own building without tearing others down.
Be confident enough in your own being to construct your own life without spreading negativity.
If you’re that unhappy that you have to attempt to tear others down, audit your life and why YOU’RE unhappy and putting that onto others.
Have a great day, everyone!

Not a day goes by I don’t think of how much I miss my brother and all the things I’d go back and do to prevent him not being here today.
I’m just thankful I have moments like this captured on video and the fact that he lives on through my words and actions while I carry his ashes on my wrist in my bracelet everywhere I go.
Moments of reflection like this challenge my beliefs of being a human but also has me considering the quantum perspective of life more and more. I’ve never really considered such dark thoughts in my life before my brother passed. The feelings of regret, “survivor guilt”, anger, sadness, love, confusion, “what if”, resentment, etc. consume me on a regular basis.
I try my best to channel it all into my efforts to serve and support others and it’s tough. I bury a lot of it in at times but damn does it get me at other times.
I love you, Danny.
