Early this morning, I’m heading off to do something I have never done before in my life.
I’m climbing trees and going down zip lines.
As a person who lost literally every arm wrestle I have ever been involved in, I’m not exactly the prime figure to be climbing trees.
Regardless, I still want to give it a try. To push myself further beyond.
But even as these trees have grips to make climbing laughably easier, this is still something that is surreal to me.
It’s something totally different that I wouldn’t even imagine myself doing.
Some of the greatest experiences in our lives rest in the things that we never imagined ourselves doing.
6 years ago, I never would’ve imagined myself to be working on a business, let alone two.
13 years ago, I wouldn’t have expected myself to be travelling across Canada.
A few months ago, I never would’ve imagined myself climbing trees and going down zip lines.
Life has a lot of twists and turns. For sure there will be bad things. There will be struggles, complications and more. Some times our own fears get in the way or we make excuses.
But the beauty of doing something different can bring us new experiences we never thought possible.
All You Have To Say Is One Thing
A simple word. No hesitation.
Of course, you want this to be within reason. A lot of times we say yes to a lot of things and leave us with no time to do our own things, but with experiences like these, they are rare.
But it’s also these experiences that push forward and make us want to work harder than before to achieve great things.
So give yourself a wonderful experience to work towards. The more stuff you get done, the more you can reward yourself to something completely different and exciting.
To your growth!

Yesterday I pushed myself farther than I did before on a number of fronts. First, I started to be marketing a little more about my new website. It’s not much at the moment, but it is progress from what I have been doing before.
I also created a video detailing more about the blog itself.
It’s a step forward because it’s been a while since I’ve gotten back into video, but I’m making a serious commitment to getting back into that too. This is one of those steps.
It was a pretty good day considering my Friday’s I usually don’t do much, but I managed to get a lot done yesterday.
