Take A Leap Of Faith: Reflecting At The Beach About My Life’s Journey

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing my story of transforming my life, including how belief, hard work, and faith led me here.

Whenever I can, I like to get away from the office, my computer, devices, and social media to reflect on my thoughts.

Over the last few years, a lot of change has happened in my life.

If you are new to my journey, I came from a small city on the east coast of Canada, called Halifax.

For the first 25 years of my life I lived in my comfort zone.

It wasn’t until the last few years where I really got out of my comfort zone by pushing past my insecurities and boundaries.

Once I started doing this, that is when things started to happen.

To accomplish whatever you want in life, you need to work hard and trust the process, while taking a leap of faith.

Whether you want to improve your love life, your career, or your health and fitness journey, you have to believe it is going to happen.

Don’t Worry About The How, Just Focus On The Why

I love the saying, “Don’t worry about the how, just focus on the why.

Focus on why it’s important to you and why do you have to do it.

Once you continue to shift your daily habits and mindset, things will begin to happen.

I wrote about this in my book, Think And Live Lean.

There were times when I was going to give up on my journey.

I didn’t feel like I was making an impact on anyone’s lives, therefore I wasn’t making any money as an entrepreneur.

I was putting all of this content out there, but I thought I was talking to nobody because no one was listening or engaging.

It was really tough.

I think a lot of people, without that belief, would have quit.

However, as the saying goes, when you are about to quit, remember to push through the next level, because that is when things start to change.

For example, when I kept pushing, I began to receive emails with more business opportunities.

At this time I also received an email from that special fan of the show who eventually became my wife, the mother of my children, and business partner, Jessica.

If you take away just one message from this little rant, it should be this.

Keep Believing

Never give up on what you truly want to accomplish in your life.

Everything you see in my current lifestyle was not even close to being a reality for me.

As a small town Canadian boy, I never thought I could live in California.

I had no idea this lifestyle was possible.

The thought of what has happened in my life, and where I have come, still energizes me.

I always remember dreaming about living here.

I remember watching Baywatch and seeing them run up and down the beach in the sun thinking, wouldn’t it be so cool to be one of those people that lives in this area.

Now it’s actually happening.

Self-Awareness: Why Your Results Aren’t Faster

When you are aware of what you want out of life, believe it will happen and work hard to get it.

It’s time for my meditation, so I’m going to say goodbye.
