I'm about to make my video for the next season of American Ninja Warrior submissions.

And I need to admit something to you....

I can't do the warped wall right now.

I physically can, because I've done it before.

But mentally, I stop myself.

I won't commit.

I won't reach with both hands.

I hate heights and my mind is messing with me big time.  My palms are sweaty just thinking about it.

But I absolutely love it. It's a whole new element for me and it's making me struggle with some new growth.  I know myself, and I know what this is going to do to me inside and out.

The other day when I was talking to a group of people I said "if you want to do something big then you need to quit stopping yourself."

You hear it time and time again, the biggest difference between people that accomplish things and those that don't, is that they JUST DO IT.

They don't just talk about losing weight, they just do it.

They don't just talk about starting their own business, they just do it.

They don't just talk about writing that book they've been meaning to write, they just do it.

Little by little. One step at a time.

Even when they fail, because trust me, read about any success story, and that's a huge part of it.

Even when they don't know what's going to happen, because guess what, none of us do.

Even when others dismiss their ideas, because it's a fact, there will always be haters.

When we started Fit Me Up, we built a website before we had a business.

It was one tiny way that we could PHYSICALLY take action, to start a passion that we MENTALLY dreamt about.

I encourage you to do that today.

There is something on your heart that you really want to do or know needs to get done.  No matter how big or small.

Maybe it's just mending a broken relationship.

Maybe it's just completing that proposal.

Maybe it's starting that new blog.

Just map out a plan and take one tiny step of action.

Then tomorrow, take another one.

They add up, and that's how true change happens.

There's one thing that I've become really good at.....

And that's putting myself out there.

I don't care what I look like, or if I fall flat on my face.

I may not even make the Ninja Warrior show.  And if I do, I may not even make it past the first obstacle.

It's not even my thing to be honest.

But it's a new challenge that gets me out of my comfort zone and has been doing wonders for my training.

And more than anything, I promised my kids I would try.

So I'll take my first step tomorrow and record my video. Then from there, it's HIStory.

But I promise you this, no matter what, I will nail that warped wall.

Because many things will stop me in life, but never again will it be myself.

Don't let yourself stop you today. Dreams don't just happen. You gotta make them happen.

Do it today.

It may just be an absolute game-changer....

For you, and everyone in your life.

It's not about us,
Coach Theo
