PJ’s edge…

Excellence is all about finding your edge. The elite live on the edge and get comfortable there. You see, they’ve come to understand that performance gains come when outside the comfort zone, and on the edge of the challenge zone. This edge feels like it’s just this side of the panic zone, well, ’cause it is. The panic zone is the ledge, friend. When you find yourself feeling like you’re out on the ledge, take four deep breathes and remind yourself that you’re not. Eliminate the “l.”

Remember, friend, most humans underestimate capacity and overly catastophize the challenge. Flow is found with just the right combination of challenge and capacity. Too much challenge and you’re overwhelmed. Too little? Bored. Of course, the worst feeling is when you’re not the one (in your mind at least) deciding what to reach toward. You may think your leader is disconnected to reality and setting unrealistic expectations. You may be right. You’re most likely wrong.

The truth is you and I can do more than we think. You and I need someone to make us do what we can. If you have a BTL builder/leader in your system, you can bet they’re gonna believe before you do. So, friend, find your edge. Go on reach for it. Like PJ this morning, you may just be capable of riding 56 miles even though you’ve never done it before. You may be able to do so much more…

Find your edge. Get off the ledge.

Remember, anytime you’re playing on the bleeding edge with regard to anything, you’re gonna have moments where it feels like you’re bleeding out and your back end’s hanging out over the ledge. Breathe. Pull back a bit. Take back some semblance of control. Eliminate the catastrophic loss from your mind. Calm yourself down. Good.

Now that you’re good, friend, how ’bout you and I get back out there. Come on, PJ, it will be just like old times back at the Church. Let me help you find another edge. Good…
