I’m a health, business and life coach based in Cheltenham in the Cotswolds but I take clients from all over the world. Therefore, I come into contact with all types of people.
However, this guy blew my mind!
Can you imagine doing that? I can’t. It brings up the fear inside me but strangely enough, it makes me excited. The difference between those two emotions is slight.
But there’s another way to look at this. Yes, he’s doing something remarkable. We see it and can’t imagine ever doing it ourselves.
We’re left speechless that (A) it’s possible. Or (B) Anyone would want to do it in the first place.
But to Alex Honnold, it’s just how he lives his life. It’s what he trains for, aspires to and lives to do!
And while getting there took effort, discipline, practice and a certain degree of failure. Alex shows us that human potential is way beyond what we think. The truth is that we also treat people like this as different. Like they are part of the X-Men and way beyond what is achievable for us.
However, whilst we may not want to solo free climb El Cap. We (YES YOU!) are capable of truly amazing things, way beyond your current perceived potential.
I know it may not feel like it right now. I know you may be struggling with energy, focus, weight, lethargy or a multitude of other complaints and whilst I cannot promise to have you springing up the side of a mountain. I can help you regain the vitality and zest for life that you may feel is unreachable for you right now.
My point is this. That your greatness is within your reach. You are not stuck living life where you are right now. You have options. You have choices. You have the ability to take small steps forward.
We can’t all be pro athletes or write hit records or lead multi-million-pound companies but we can achieve greatness within our own lives and capacities—or even beyond them.
Search internally and figure out what you can do, or want to be able to do. Is there anything that you can do no matter how small that will move you in the right direction? How would that make you feel?
If you would like some assistance in reaching your greatness I would be honoured to guide you. Feel free to reach out!
