Ditch the story…

I am stuck in Minnesota right now on my way to Colorado Springs, so I’m grateful that this has given me the opportunity to send this note to you.

If you watched my previous video, you will remember that the only thing keeping us from having what we want is our story about why we can’t have it.

We all have a story. Sometimes our story serves us, but sometimes it does not.  What about your story?  Does it empower you, or does your story paralize you from taking action?

Nick Vujicic (in the video below) could have believed any number of disempowering stories. Instead he chose to rise above the challenges of his life and created a philosophy (story) that is so empowering that it drives him to do things most would think impossible.

Nick plays golf, swims, and fishes with no limbs!

What is your “reason” for not working out again? Why can’t you have that house, car, relationship, body, or feeling? What is your story?

I sincerely hope that when you watch this video you will see a glimpse of yourself and taste the power within you that has been surpressed maybe for many years.

There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality. My life’s quest has been to awaken this force and help each of us to remember and use the unlimited power that resides within us all.

— Anthony Robbins

“I can’t run because…..”

“I could never do that because…”

“I can’t lose wait because…”

“I can’t start because I’m waiting for….”

“I had to stop ___________ because…”

“I can’t change my diet yet because…”

“I can never love him/her again because…”

What usually follows is a disempowering story. Is the story true and is it serving you?

I want to hear from you. Comment with thoughts, comments, or questions.

To a life full of passion and happiness! Make it a great week!

  2. Sam you are absolutely right. We tend to be our own worst enemy when it comes to reaching our full potential. We can all learn from both of these inspiring young men.

  4. Sam,
    I enjoy reading your blogs. I just read a good handful since this is the first time in awhile that I’ve checked out your page. I especially enjoyed the blog above this. I have had the honor and priviledge to meet Mr.Vujicic. Hearing him speak in person is astonishing. It really makes you take a step back and look at your own life. The fact that he does this to serve God is even better.
    Your blog hit home today. I am sure by now that Tim or Abbey have told you what is going on. The other night (ask your brother if you wish) I was really tired and beat down about having this. I was ready to just stop. Like most in my situation, I am happy for a diagnosis, but can’t help but think about questions that don’t have answers. “Why me?” “What next?” “How long do I have?” “Will I ever have a family? Finish college?” “Does God hear me?” I would torture myself in an endless cycle asking how and why questions. Well, I’m done. I spent my entire life in church growing up and my teen years were spent training with Salem Super Kicks. You’re post just reminded me that I’m the only one limiting my progress and healing process. I’m not going to stop treatment with the doctors, but I am going to take control of MY life. I am going to fight through this and live to tell my story. It’s my life and I’m going to be here to live it to the fullest. I’m not ready yet to make the public announcement of what’s happening, but when I do, I’m going to live my life as a living testimony of God’s grace and the power of positive thoughts in the human mind.
    Thanks and I WILL see you soon.
