Anger isn’t all that bad an emotion if you know how to make it work for you. In a strange way, anger can actually help you focus, connecting you to your more raw and emotional sides.
Its when we let anger get out of hand and become persistent, that problems arise. When we let anger get out of hand, it can impact your daily life mentally, physically and spiritually.
Anger is a built-up emotion that builds on itself. And when it doesn’t get vented out, that bottled up negative energy can erupt within us; making it hard for us to carry out our daily tasks and routines.
Welcome to episode 19 of The Greatness Project. In this episode, I chat with Dr. Adam Rogers, a pharmacist who has managed to become a strong OCR (Obstacle Course Race) racer in a short amount of time.
This is a great show to listen to if you want precise tips on how to train for a Spartan Race.
I did something quite bold early this week and signed up for the ultimate Spartan challenge. This Spartan challenge will be a test of will, commitment, focus, and my ability to endure ridiculous levels of discomfort.
On the surface this won’t sound appealing to most, and that’s okay. In fact, it is because of the ‘off-putting’ difficulty that resides within this challenge, that I decided it must be done.
Preparing to take on this challenge will not be fun. In fact, it will be very hard, it will be grueling, but ultimately, it will be defining.
So what is this ultimate Spartan challenge I speak of?
If you want to rock life and leave a legacy, you are going to need to learn how to build confidence like a boss. If you’re a big thinker like I am, you’ve most likely envisioned all that you hope to achieve in your life.
However, one of the aspects that many of us accidentally leave out in the consideration of our grand ambitions, is the prospect of the unnerving risks that we must eventually confront to successfully progress towards those dreams.
The purpose of today’s post is to arm you, with a handful of some of the most effective methods for building your confidence. This way, when those pesky unforeseen fear inducing challenges pop up as you march towards toward your big goals, you will be in conquer mode, and better prepared to successfully manage those fears like a boss.
It was around the end 2014 when I decided to sign up for my very first obstacle course race (also known as an OCR). I decided to sign up for the Spartan Race in particular, because I heard from friends how amazingly difficult it was while at the same time, being extremely fulfilling if completed.
It sounded a lot like life, difficult at times, but extremely fulfilling during and at the end of the journey.
So, I made up my mind one night to sign up for and participate in the most grueling, physically challenging OCR race on the planet.
As luck would have it, signing up was actually one of the best things I did for my life at the time. When I signed up I was 33, had one kid and another on the way, while struggling to get my new internet startup up and running. You could say that life seemed pretty stressful at the time.
On top of the stress, I wasn’t exercising as routinely as I’d liked. I was consuming unhealthy food regularly, and in general, I just wasn’t feeling very inspired, and life was seemingly getting the best of me.
