People that come to see me aren’t doing so because everything is awesome. The people I see are frustrated, they feel like they are stuck in what I call “Suckville” – that dreaded space between our reality and our potential or where we “think” we should be.
Suckville can be a tough place to get out of. You’re constantly frustrated with your current reality and think you should have had more success, more money, or whatever the case is that you should have had more of. You feel like you are taking way too long to reach your goals, and you want success RIGHT NOW.
Too many think success is a sprint and will go according to plan. It is not a sprint but rather an obstacle course that never goes according to plan. Ever.
If you are an athlete, it is about breaking free from the fears and doubts that limit your progress. Those frustrating struggles, both in your mind and on the field, never seem to go away. Even after victories, there are times that make you wonder if it is all worth it.
If you are a corporate performer, someone working to improve in the workforce, to win the big contract, or close the big sale, it is managing the numerous “no’s” to find the victory. Long days of farming business can lead to losing the faith and drive, only to be rewarded with success. And then to have to start all over the next day!
If you are a “lifer,” someone that wants to improve your life, your relationships, or overall quality of life, reality is not what you see on social media. Life is hard. The daily experiences are reminders that you need a vacation, but when you go on vacation, all that consumes your mind is that you have to return to your life. Don’t worry, a new car, new job, new relationship, or new house will solve your unhappiness, right? Wrong.
Don’t worry, though. I have you. I get stuck in suck all the time, but I can help you navigate the struggles in your athletic performance, your job, and your life.
1. A – Awareness & Acknowledgement – You must have AWARENESS & ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of your current situation. If you are stuck in suck, admit it! Only then, can you craft a plan to get out.
2. C – Make a CHOICE to CHANGE your CIRCUMSTANCE – Most people are great at making plans but fail to act or execute! Need an example? How about New Year’s Resolutions?
3. T – Take Action – Take ACTION! I mean, massive action. Remember, it is the “start” that “stops” most people. To truly break free from Suckville, you must ACT. Utilize the compound effect to help you do so. Small, smart choices + consistency + time = radical change!
