I’m in Australia at the moment, getting set to do 2 back to back weekend workshops with Tony Gentilcore. This marks the 7th country we’ve presented in:
In Canada we’ve presented in 3 provinces. In the US we’ve presented in 8 states. This has given me the good fortune to travel in a way that subsidizes from the workshop costs, and gives me the chance to see parts of the world I’d only dreamed of previously.
There’s no logical reason why I should be able to do these kinds of things. I grew up in a small town with no stop lights, currently live in a winter wasteland far away from celebrities or television cameras, have a 5-head and a build that doesn’t lend to shirtless selfies. By all normative means, I shouldn’t be able to say I’m travelling the world talking about getting jacked and swole.
Yet here I am.
The main reason I’m able to do stuff like this is that I didn’t wait or ask for permission to start doing workshops, writing blog posts, or producing digital products. I just started, and consistently did more and more, while reaching a broader audience.
It’s not always been a linear improving process, there’s been some times where we’ve had to cancel workshops because we didn’t get enough people enrolled to make it financially viable. But we pressed on.
If you wait until you feel like you’re ready or “good enough” to try doing something outside of your usual, it’s never going to happen. Take massive action and see what happens. You might surprise yourself and wake up on the other side of the world with a room full of people wanting to hear what you have to say.
