The hardest part in mastering your craft, building your BTL core, or authoring your authentic OPUS isn’t getting started. All kinda candy asses start well intentioned projects with real purpose and huge portions of passion. Few finish strong. Few. Most stop showing up when resistance shows its ugly head. Resistance is subtle, cunning, and relentless. Resistance is the little voice in your head telling you to hit snooze. Resistance wants you to give up and gives you seemingly all kinda good data points to build its case. “You’ve done enough,” “One day won’t matter,” “It’s impossible,” “You’re so busy,” “Everythings changing,” and the proverbial favorite of the modern man, “Not feeling it today…”

Mastering your craft, building your literal/BTL core, and authoring your authentic OPUS are long, laborious climbs. The higher you climb the greater the resistance. Most resistance is in your head. It’s relentless. It’s not satisfied until you are.

Keep showing up, friend. Keep showing up at the Shoe, bearded one, k-dev krazies, PJ teammates, Grap, and young Beth. Keep showing up. The Shoe fits, friend. You are that guy/girl. Don’t be afraid to finish what you’ve started. Good…

Your feelings cannot be trusted. There will be many moments, days, weeks, and maybe even months where you ain’t gonna be “feeling it.” Show up, anyway. Don’t let resistance get it’s relentless tenacles into your system.  Keep showing up, my friend. Keep showing up. Resistance is beaten by your resilience. The seeds of your mental resilience are sown when you choose to not succumb to your feelings and will yourself back onto the mat, the 3PP, the court, or whatever is the setting for your good work. Don’t rationalize, friend. Do the work. Do your work, friend. Do the work within. Do the work on your aim.

Keep working. Your team’s counting on someone like you to model the way, embrace pain and suffering, and embody truth in love. Good…
