Grit: How to Embrace the Suck

Grit: How to Embrace the Suck


Something a little different today…we’re doing an excerpt from one of my trainings for the Feel Good Life Design course and as I was reviewing, 2 thoughts hit me.

  1. Oh my god, this is exactly what I’ve been talking about in my podcast.
  2. Damn, this is good shit. *woot-woot*

So, let’s talk about the suck (the dips, the fuck-it’s, the loops…yada yada yada). The part where you’re not on track to reach those goals you really do care about.

Are you looking at your life like a runaway train you have no control over? Are you waiting for the magic Monday that never comes?

Dude stop. The suck is important. It’s part of your natural path to success.

If you’ve reached the step to set or even consider new goals, the three reasons I share in this episode about strength, happiness, and growth are no-brainer motivators.

So get going!

Who loves the suck? We do!
