What are you willing to do for the things you say you “need” and “want” in your life?
Are you willing to sacrifice moments of instant gratification for the long game of sustainability?
Are you willing to put yourself in uncomfortable ale situations or moments of immense pain like I experienced in this photo?
The difference between a pro and amateur is the willingness to push past moments of physical and mental pain, fear, doubt, worry, judgment, stress and whatever else comes your way.
The future vision we create as a pro of our life’s journey is what defines us. We’re not defined by our past, who we showed up as yesterday, the times we fell down or “failed”, or the times we heard the word “no”. We are clear on our purpose behind the vision and won’t let anything stop us, no matter how far off course we find ourselves.
Pain is just information. Use the information to trouble shoot navigating forward to success.
When you find yourself comfortable, that should set off an alarm that it’s time to optimize.
Adaptations are healthy and necessary to build strength, but comfort can lead to stagnant phases in life and lead to unhappiness.
That’s what I’ve found in my life and BMX has taught me there’s always more in us to optimize our current level in area of life, if we’re willing to put the work in.
Get after it with clear, purposeful, and align intent that matches the vision you’ve created for your life.
Don’t settle for anything less and don’t let moment of pain persuade you off the path.
