I did it! I’m an achiever. I said I was going to do the #22Kill 22-day push-up challenge to help bring awareness to the horrible fact that an average of 22 Veterans commit suicide daily. I’m gonna have to look that up and Snopes it, because I want that not to be true. That’s awful and heartbreaking. But, having had some pretty deep, philosophical conversations with my friend P.F., a Marine Veteran with lengthy deployments in Iraq and the Middle East, I know Veterans see and do things that my fragile mind could not handle, so I can only imagine their thoughts, dreams, and mindset.
It breaks my heart. I pray for them. I should pray for, and do more, for them.
Now for something that filled my heart and I hope you have an hour to fill your heart, too. Every time I think, “that Tony Robbins is a big ol’ sham artist,” he goes and does something (like appearing on Tim Ferriss’s Podcast) and blows me away, inspires me, and puts everything in perspective. Honestly, I beg you (or ask you politely), if you have an hour (maybe a bit more), take a , on iTunes, right from the site, or Tim Ferriss even lets you just download the audio as a file and move it to your digital audio player.
Are you stressed? Do you have anxiety? Are you in a slump (as I currently am on a number of fronts)? Heck, even if everything’s clickin’ for you, I think you could get something out of the podcast.
I promise, when I blog about something, it’s not because I get a click-thru fee from Tony Robbins or Tim Ferriss. It’s because I’m a reqgular guy who sometimes comes across GREAT STUFF, and the podcast I linked above is GREAT STUFF. OK. I’m not gonna bully you. I just though it was amazing and maybe you will, too. Here’s two great quotes followed by my Day-2 Push-Ups.
“Don’t wish it was easier; wish you were better.” and
“Life is always happening for us, it’s happening to us.” on
p.s. I’m not kidding when I say this, I’m going to listen to the entire podcast again, later this week, but this time with pen and paper in hand and take notes.
