The Journey Day 83 03.03.20

Every day we begin again… The Journey Day 83.

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
I’m just fucking tired. Exhausted. The #75HARD thing or the weekend of debauchery or maybe a little of both has me absolutely and totally wiped out today. I’ll do what I can… and hope that’s enough for the day…

SELF-SUGGESTION: THIS IS WHERE I’M GOING. WHERE IS THE PROOF OF PROGRESS TOWARD THAT GOAL TODAY? This is where the rubber hits the road, team. This is the good stuff. These are the end goals. This is what it’s all about.

  1. I am a man after God’s own heart.
  2. I am a world-class athlete. 
  3. I drive a world-class $100M publishing business.
  4. I help drive the company I work for to $100M. 
  5. emptynestman.com is the marketing machine that drives the $100M publishing company. 
  6. I am the best man, father, and grandfather I can be.
  7. I am one bad-ass motherfucker.

The LADDER TO THE TOP 7 to complete TODAY. Get out of the comfort zone. GET USED TO DISCOMFORT and learn to thrive there:
