Actions > Theory

The desire and vision are all that matter in the beginning.

No amount of planning or education will get you where you want to go without taking action.

I know so many people that are addicted to learning as they are insecure or their abilities to achieve their desires and scared to take action, so they learn more and work on more complicated plans.

Usually fear of failure and judgment, but I’ve also experienced fear of success thinking “what will people think of me when I accomplish this” or having to go through with even more action each step we reach along the journey.

Wr are also often unclear of our life vision and the belief that our desires are possible to posses.

There’s a ton of background context leading to these false beliefs based on social conditioning, subconscious programming from a young age, and our who stepping in telling us all the reasons not to act in an effort to keep us safe.

Taking action will teach you more about yourself and the reality of the desire and journey to obtain said desire than any amount of education.

Learning without doing is learning theory. I see so many people teaching theory out of fear to act, for whatever reason fear presents itself in their perspectives. How can someone teach a topic or help others device a plan if they have no hands on experience?

I am a big fan of walking my talk and try to never teach something I have no personal experience with, because that’s theory. Just because you understand something and memorized the topic, doesn’t mean you know the application of this topic. Here’s where I have issues with people “walking their talk” as I believe that’s all that matters when teaching others or learning from someone.

A degree doesn’t mean shit to me. Multiple degrees don’t mean shit. Knowing what works and what doesn’t work, based on actual experience and not theory, means the world to me and will always trump words.

Actions > words.

Life experience > education without action.

Truth > theory.

Gratitude > fear.

Purpose > self.

Do you take action or are you a subject of paralysis analysis?

Who Are You?

This quote works really well with this weeks Podcast. If you haven’t listened, check it out! The Grey Matters Podcast!

It’s ok to feel down, angry, sad, confused, lost, alone, and so on.

It’s not ok to judge others for how they respond to hardship in their lives.

We have to remember we are human and emotions come and go. It’s harder when a negative emotion arises from the death of a loved one.

When my younger brother passed last year, I was in a dark place questioning my own life. Asking myself things like “why does it matter if I live or die”? “Why should I bother doing anything anymore”? “Should I feel guilty about living my life and ever-smiling again”?

Being clear on our life vision and confident with our beliefs on life is key to not letting events affect how we feel, long term. Because when we experience an emotional state, it leads us to take action one way or another in our lives.

If we are in a negative emotional state, guess what, we’re probably not going to take the action we’re proud of. And, if we stay in this state long-term, that’s when life may not be how we imagine or want it to be.

Again, it’s ok to feel down immediately after a tragic event and there is no set time one must “get over it” even if others are saying so.

I am confident in knowing that those we love and lose wouldn’t want us to carry on feeling anything but the best we can and living our lives to the fullest in their honor.

I decided I was doing my brother an injustice to be depressed and waste the life I am fortunate enough to live. Instead, I bring his energy with me everywhere I go as I fulfill my purpose to help others.

Starts With Your Thoughts

The life and things we desire both begin as a thought. They only manifest in our reality if we take action.

Take it a step further and add in persistence and consistency to this action as big key players in this equation of manifestation.

The thoughts we have trigger emotions that lead us to take action one way or another. Either way, this action we choose to take yields a result and creates the reality we live in.

This reality builds a belief system within our subconscious mind working for or against us. This belief becomes the code we operate on every single day.

When we don’t make changes in our actions day in and day out, we literally live each day as our present self, manifesting a future that’s no different from our past or current reality.

We literally have to break the habit of being ourselves in order to create a new reality.

I get more and more clear on this statement every day I learn and apply what I am learning.

The more I change my thoughts to align with my desires, the more emotional changes occur leading me to take the action I want and that aligns with my desires.

The more this equation occurs, the more and more I manifest opportunities, relationships, and abilities to create the life I desire.

It starts with your thoughts and manifests into physical form with a belief and action.

Have you witnessed this concept play out in your life?

Make Em & Take Em

#MakeEmTakeEm refers to 2 aspects in my mind:

1) Ketosis

2) Manifestation

1) The ability to create endogenous ketones and supplement with @justpruvit pure therapeutic ketones is important for maximum optimization of our efforts living a ketogenic lifestyle. (Listen to learn why in regards to the adaptation process).

2) The ability to make a choice and take action every day that’s going to serve your desires is key to manifesting our goals and dreams.

I explain the context behind each area from my perspective.

Are you Making Em & Taking Em?

Everything you want is on the other side of fear.

One of the top questions I get is how do I overcome fear and what’s the secret?

Secret? Non!

It’s a choice I make and we all can make when presented with fear.

Start with this set of questions:

1) is this fear I’m perceiving real?

2) is this fear what I desire?

3) is this fear what I want?

If you say “no” to any of these 3 questions, then you have to make the choice to let that fear fuel you to push through to pursuing the action that sparks fear.

Everything we desire is on the other side of fear when we sit and look at what that statement represents.

If it were easy and or not scary, we’d already be doing the things we want and have the life we desire.

“Easy” and “scary” are just words and perspectives. When we shift our perspectives, we are more likely to take new action in life that leads us closer to our desires.

Thoughts Become Things

Our personality creates our personal reality.

Words are the first step beyond thought leading into emotion, action and manifestation.

Action solidify the words spoken, one way or another and take the desire in the thought and verbal form to the next level of manifesting our desires.

Patterns become our personality and manifest what we think, feel and do on a regular basis. I argue beyond the simplest form of desire, thought and actions, patterns > EVERYTHING.

Action to Manifestation

Who’s taking action that’s aligned with their desires?

Of all the things I’ve been learning over the years, taking action is THE most important piece to manifesting the results you’re looking for in your life.

You can always learn more as you go but I find a ton of people, and I was one of them, are crippled by analysis paralysis.

Our ego, or deep rooted subconscious mind, cripples us into becoming addicted to learning, training programs, etc. in an effort to “know enough” before starting.

Don’t get me wrong, those are very important aspects of manifesting a result but without a detailed action plan and implementation of that plan, education doesn’t matter.

Ever hear “knowledge is power”? It’s not, unless put into action. Same with a talent. If you’re always practicing a talent in private, and want to be known, how can you ever expect to “make it” unless someone sees you?

Don’t be afraid to be seen, accomplish your goals and live your dreams.

Prüvit to Manifest it

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?

Lance Armstrong

True or true?

Still have an email saved from 2010 post brian surgery that I wrote to @lancearmstrong and will share what that email container in person one day. I just know it!

Until then, I’ll just continue to share my gratitude and perspective I’ve gained from Lance over the years.

When I was originally diagnosed with the first brain tumor in 2010, I was on top of the world living out my dream as a pro BMX athlete beyond what I ever fathomed being possible.

When the diagnosis hit, I was a fresh 21 year old sitting in the doctors office ALONE waiting to get a report from a concussion I had received a few days prior. Never did I imagine I would be diagnosed with a massive brain tumor on accident.

I’m thankful it all happened and has worked out the way it has and Lance is one of many I have to thank for the mindset that was instilled in me on top of what my family, BMX, and my own journey instilled in me at a young age.

After a 6-hr surgery, 75 staples, and 16 stitches later, I was back riding in 5 weeks!

The fact that I’m still alive and able to love my life better than before is why I work so hard and share all I share.

Persistence is How I Made It Here

Persistence to land a trick has taught me many invaluable lessons in life.

To accept this kind of pain just to land a trick on your bike changes you mentally and subconsciously in such profound ways.

I wasn’t aware of it in the beginning but in my last few years competing and progressing, I started to become conscious to what was going on.

Now I harness it all for my purpose to serve and support those around me and willing to hear what I have to say.
