Your perceptions, your thoughts, beliefs, dreams, blocks, patterns and habits that drive you and slow you down. What exists for you on the outside, exists for you on the inside. And what you want to create on the outside, you must first create on the inside.
The truth about the ultimate edge is that there isn’t one. Your true ultimate edge is just the beginning of something bigger, cooler, more inspiring. And you’re addicted to the pursuit. An exploration of your inner frontier brought to life in the real world. And you'll do this again and again. Bringing your dreams to life.
But this edge - and it’s pursuit - are double sided.
The people I coach are hungry, relentless. Willing to push themselves to create and bring the felt visions in their heart to reality. They create something from nothing.
But in the pursuit, they become addicted to the adrenaline of being at the edge. They charge forward until their toes hang over, imminent death as they peer over, heart rates racing right before they jump, and they often burn themselves out.
Sometimes they feel like they're on a never ending chase. Like a game of fetch, where their happiness is the bone. Throwing the bone as far as they can, full speed ahead as they charge toward their happiness sitting atop their goal, only to find that the moment they catch it, they throw it again.
Moments of feeling successful feel fleeting, even though they're frequent. They almost always feel like they're operating at 65% of their capacity and could always be doing more. There's a physical sense in their chest that there is more, they can feel it.
