Life equals risk.
September was certainly the month of risk for my friends and me. I’ve always been a firm believer in getting out of our comfort zones to move forward in life. People thought I was crazy to leave a steady personal training career to pursue my Internet dreams.
Now, I’ve got the coolest job ever!
Last week, I stepped out of my zone again and endorsed my first supplement on Underground Wellness Radio. Even my closest friends thought it was a bad idea.
The response was more positive than I ever imagined.
A couple weeks back, my podcaster-in-crime Robb Wolf released his first book The Paleo Solution. In a time when people have learned to fear animal foods, Robb elected to go against the grain, fearlessly encouraging us to return to our carnivorous ways to regain our health.
Robb’s book is currently #41 on the Amazon bestseller list.
Lastly, I wouldn’t be me without the influence of my mentor Todd Durkin. The first guy to hire me out of college, Todd‘s enthusiasm, passion, and courage inspired me to create the ever-expanding vision for Underground Wellness. He taught me that I wasn’t just a personal trainer, but a visionary with the power to create whatever I wanted in life.
There are thousands of personal trainers, but there is only one TD. It takes a big vision to become trainer to a Super Bowl MVP, World Series MVP, NLF MVP, and Olympic gold medalist.
Yesterday, Todd’s first book The Impact Body Plan was released in bookstores around the country. I could not be more proud of him. He had a vision, took a risk, and achieved his goal.
Life equals risk. If you’re not taking risks, you’re not living. Feel the fear and do it anyway. There are no failures. Every adversity carries with it a seed of equal or greater benefit.
Go for greatness!
