Create Your Bigger Future

I was recently having a conversation with Ryan Gottfredson about Success Mindsets. We talked about the need to be able to overcome fear to strengthen our mindsets. In our conversation about overcoming fear, Ryan suggested watching the documentary, “Free Solo.”

If you have not seen this documentary, I suggest that you watch it. There are many life lessons to learn from it.

Free Solo is the story of Alex Honnold as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock… the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park… without a rope.

Attempting to achieve this goal is either perfection or certain death…

“This is your path and you will pursue it with excellence. You face your fear because your goal demands it, that is the warrior spirit. You give something 100% focus because your life depends on it.”

I recently had someone tell me that they’ve set goals for themselves, but still have the feeling of, “I’ll do my best but that’s all I can do.”

How committed to your goals are you?

If Alex Honnold was committed to doing his best free soloing El Cap, because that’s all he could do… he would have died!

Are you willing to commit 100% and do whatever it takes?
