A Challenge: Not For The Faint of Heart


Don’t tell me that you can’t, because it’s simply not true. Tell me that you won’t, or that it’s not a priority for you or, or that you simply don’t want to do it. But don’t tell me that you can’t. People in far worse shape under far more tumultuous circumstances have done far greater with far less…so please don’t tell me that you can’t.


Lose weight? Get in the best shape of your life? Start eating healthier?

Don’t tell me that you can’t. I already know that you can.


Restore your marriage? Embrace personal growth to strengthen your relationships?

Rekindle the spark?

Don’t tell me that you can’t. I already know that you can.


Leave a job that makes you miserable? Build a career around your passion? Live with

greater purpose and in greater alignment with what you love?

Don’t tell me that you can’t. I already know that you can.


I don’t say these things to be rude, obnoxious or crass. I say this because I know that if

you’re truly going to make positive changes in your life this year it starts with you

saying, “Enough is enough! I’m not willing to lie to myself any longer. I’m not willing

compromise on a life I desire anymore!”


In other words, it’s a choice and a decision that you make based on a desire for

change. That desire won’t come unless you’re willing to take responsibility for your life

and the role you’ve played in arriving to this point.


Put your foot down, take complete responsibility of your present circumstances and

demand more of yourself for the future.

Don’t tell me that you can’t, because it’s simply not true. 


Here are 16 ways to develop the mental makeup that will make you unstoppable this


1. Dominate your mornings. Give yourself at least an hour of time to yourself to get

your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical faculties going and ready for the day.

2. Build balance into your daily practice. Don’t wait for it, hope for it and wish for it.

Build it. Business, financial, mental, physical, nutritional, spiritual, relationships and

lifestyle—ensure that you have something you do daily for each major facet of your life.

3. Begin and end your day with gratitude. If you begin with gratitude you’ll end with

abundance, Gratitude always precedes more to be grateful for.

4. Listen less and talk more. Yes, you read that right. Instead of mulling through

limiting, disempowering beliefs, identify what you want across all facets of your life and

speak it into existence. Each day, affirm it to yourself as if you already have it.

5. Be incredibly intentional and deliberate. With your time and with your planning,

make sure you’re charting out a path and a plan that is directly in line with what you

want most.

6. Prioritize and protect. Always be clear of your priorities, always block out time in

your schedule to tend to them, and always protect that time with a vengeance.

7. Remain curious. If you stay curious, your curiosity will spark growth. It will keep you

exploring, discovering, learning and growing. All of which make you feel truly alive.

8. Don’t take yourself too serious. Have fun with yourself. Joke with yourself. Laugh

at your blunders and imperfections. Have a fun relationship with yourself.

9. Be diligent enough to always assess your performance. Not in the sense of

being overly critical but in identifying your wins and what you did well, identifying your

losses and what you could have done better and identifying what you learned and can

do better next time.

10. Be humble enough to make improvements. Once you’ve done your assessment

don’t let your pride get in the way or prevent you from making improvements going


11. Be enamored with your potential for growth. While it may be uncomfortable at

first, daily personal growth should excite you as much as anything else in life.

12. Take time to connect with a source that is higher than you. Strengthen your

faith. Appreciate the enormity of the universe and the existence around you and explore

what it all means to you. Don’t leave your spiritual philosophy unread or unpracticed.

13. Take time to breathe. Our lives are made up of a series of shortened breaths.

Make it a daily practice to focus on your breathing, opening up and contracting your


14. Be deliberate with you associations. You can’t have relationships by default if

you expect to live with great purpose. If you want to make a million dollars you must

deliberately surround yourself with those trying to make a million dollars. If you want to

do work in third world countries you must deliberately surround yourself with those

wanting to do work in third world countries. Decide what you love and surround yourself

with others who share a similar passion.

15. Read everyday. Be it 5 pages of a good book or 50 pages, be certain you’re

stimulating your mind and absorbing new information everyday.

Perhaps most important…

16. Share your growth with others. True significance is accomplished through

sharing your worth with others. Any act that serves two or more people is an action you

should do more of. Contribute meaningfully in the lives of others.
