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.

Sad But True

This is pretty ridiculous but sadly spot on to the direction our society is heading.

What’s even sadder is the fact that many people don’t even have control over it because their brain is being hijacked by the biological affects of the foodlikeproducts our nation consumes on a regular basis, making up for over 75% of diets and is full of sugar.

I was once there but luckily for me, and my genetic predisposition, I stayed “in-shape” and was “healthy”. At least I thought I was healthy.

The inflamed state of my body from such a processed diet, along with mutated genes and specific negative genes activated, led me to being diagnosed with a non cancerous meningioma brain tumor.

Since then, I have made some serious changes to my lifestyle and diet and I share this with all of you to inspire each and every one of you to make just one small change to your lifestyle and diet that could have such a profound impact you’ll never fathom until experienced.

You don’t need to be perfect or do it all at once. Just adopt one small change here and there, and stick to it, and share what you experience with others.

@nutritionschool refers to this as the ripple affect and I have seen it take place on a regular basis in my life.

Love your body and treat it right. You won’t be disappointed.

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.

It’s All Perspective

Perspective is essential to life. “Life is 10% of what happened to us and 90% of how we respond.” “Life doesn’t happen to us, life happens for us.” Both quotes come from different people but underline the same choice & that’s a choice in perspective that we have every single day, no matter what. We all face this choice with every part of our lives.

This choice can not be taken from us unless we decided to give it up.

We can choose how we decide to see the world, see our lives & we see the events that place one way over another, good or bad, with the simple act of thought.

Glass half full over glass half empty. “Failure” over an opportunity to learn and grow.

It’s all perspective.

Now, I could have given up on more than 2 handful of occasions but good would that have done for me & my vision for my life?

It wouldn’t have done any good & would have actually put me further back from reaching my goals & potential to help others.

I also can’t stress enough how gratitude fuels the shift in perspective & leads to abundance.

When I was faced with a death sentence at the pinnacle of my dream BMX career & just turned 21, I first went to fear, worry, & what I call “victimville” but my family, the BMX community, learning of @lancearmstrong, & my own desire to live my life on my own terms wouldn’t allow that choice in fear.

My perspective quickly shifted to that of gratitude to still be alive, have the love & support of many around the world, & most importantly, a chance to fight to make my tomorrow better & continue living my life.

I often hear friends, family, & strangers complaining of how “hard” life is, how much life “sucks”, or “it must be nice” when in reality, every single person that is conscious & breathing has something to be grateful for.

I challenge you all to focus on just ONE thing you’re grateful for each day & really feel it deep down. That emotional state you find yourself in can change you life as it’s changed mine.

Adversity Cultivates Success

I was 21 when I was told I would never ride my bike again.

That’s the day I was also told I would die unless my head was cut open to remove a massive tumor taking up half my brain. Even then, I still had a chance I may not make it out alive.

This was one of the many challenges I have faced in life and not the first circumstance that put the fragility of my life into perspective.

I later learned, life is full of gifts in the form of adversity and it’s all a matter of perspective. I have overcome injuries, financial instability, abuse, cancer, heartbreak, living in my car, on couches, or in hallway closets, and even depression.

What most of us don’t seem to see, is that we all have choices. We have a choice to believe the things we’re told or to dismiss them as noise. We have a choice to see all of the abundance and success within our lives, or we can choose to see the failures, set-backs, and the things we lack in our lives.

We have a choice to give up or fight back to beat the odds. Prove people wrong and prove our support right. Some choices are hard to make. But those are the ones that mold who we are today. It’s these choices that make us stronger…and wiser…and allow us to grow. I believe it’s not the cards we are dealt, rather it’s how we CHOOSE to play those cards that determine the outcome of our lives.

Sometimes we fall down in life. It’s these falls that are some of the most important learning opportunities for us. Not failures; learning lessons on the path to success.

But, it’s how we choice get back up that defines us and determines our future. Not our past times when we fell down or failed. We’re defined by how we CHOOSE to move forward in life.

Adversity cultivates success and life is all about choices.

So choose wisely. 💚✌️

Be Proactive, Not ReActive

Starting the week off strong with a PR in hang power cleans (70kilo) and some @go_exxentric squats and 3 second decent bench press.

Be proactive rather than reactive! Take care of your body and mind as they work in a uniform reactive relationship to one another. Be pro-active when it comes to your health and goals with your life.

Don’ settle for the status quo and then react to negatives. Do what you can to prevent a negative from occurring in the first place. It’s never too early to take action towards your goals and your health.

I learned this the hard way. I blew out my knee in 2013 and decided to have it fixed in 2015. 2015 was the year I started to take this fitness bing serious in an effort to strengthen and protect my legs. The more I practiced, the more I experienced benefits in the mind and body. 💚✌️

What’s In Your Hand?

What would you do if this was your scan result after an MRI following a sports related head injury?

My path to making my dream of becoming a pro bmx athlete come true has never been an easy one.

I know things that are worth having don’t come easily. I have overcome financial instability, injuries, cancer, abuse, heartbreak, and depression. If the things we desire most in life were simple, we’d already have them.

I am a firm believer that it’s not the cards were dealt; rather it’s the way we CHOOSE to play those cards that determine the outcome of our life. 💚✌️

Did you get dealt a shit hand of cards? How are YOU CHOOSING to play them?

Brainy BMX – Providing Support & Inspiration

I believe in providing everyone with support in times of need. Even the strongest walks of life can’t do everything on their own.

From brain tumor patients to brain injury and disorder patients, I am raising funds for direct patient funding/care. Not research or awareness, although I believe those have their place. But funding for the people that need the help now and can’t wait for a scientific intervention and are already plenty aware of what’s going on. They need help with home expenses, treatment options and funding, healthy food, lifestyle choices that they can implement, and just someone to resonate with and not feel alone.

Being in the shoes of brain tumor and brian injury patients, I know this all too well. I’m grateful to be alive and thriving even with 4 brain tumors. I’ve combined my passion for bmx, nutrition, fitness, mindset practices, and supporting those to live as healthy and happy as possible into a touring live event around the world with the mission to inspire change and raise support for those in their biggest time of need.

Success Is Rented 

People think success is easy for some or “over-night” for others. FALSE! Success is a constant work in progress or practice, if you will. 
It’s day in and day out choices we make to better our lives. It’s a constant effort. It may looks “easy” to some, but that’s because they enjoy what they do. 
When you lead a path of little to no resistance, have gratitude for your life, work hard to be the best you can be, visualize the life you want and take action towards it, success is inevitable. 
Set a goal, have a WHY or purpose for that goal, visualize and take action, and believe in yourself. That’s all it takes. 💯💚✌️
