We all struggle.
So why not struggle for your own cause?
Why not struggle to create something that you want?
Why not struggle for a cause you truly believe in?
Most of us are caught in a hamster wheel.
We struggle for somebody else’s vision.
We struggle for things we don’t believe in.
We struggle to build a life we don’t actually want.
A week before my baby boy, Sauryn was born I walked off the Newlands Golf Course in Vancouver after shooting a -3, 69 for my playability test with the CGTF (Canadian Golf Teachers Federation).
I had officially become a certified golf instructor.
It was my 12th birthday that I played golf for my first time. I was instantly obsessed.
At the time, I was hardcore into both baseball and soccer. My parents told me I couldn’t do them all. I chose golf.
Mommy needs to sleep.
Daddy needs to work.
Baby likes to bounce.
Big visions require big sacrifices.
Truth is, most people aren’t willing to sacrifice:
to bring those visions to life.
I can’t say I blame them. I’ve often questioned what the fuck I’m doing.
Spending my life working towards lofty goals. It seems like madness, it honestly does.
Yet at the same time, it feels like the right thing to do.
In some crazy way, it actually feels like the best thing to do with the majority of my time on Planet Earth.
Perhaps it’s my ego tricking me as it searches for:
Or, maybe it’s me just doing what I’m hardwired to do.
I have these natural abilities as a leader, creator and entrepreneur.
I feel it’d be a waste to not use them for the betterment of others.
I know there are many days where I wish I was wired to want a much simpler existence. Today was one of them.
But there is drive that keeps me motoring forward (sometimes it even drives me a little crazy).
“Just take the next step. Go a little farther. You’ve come this far, see what’s over the next mountain.”
Is the effort worth it? I guess I’ll find out, won’t I?
So far. It’s made for a helluva a story and the story just keeps getting richer.
Creating your dreams takes hard work.
I know amongst the new agey’ish communities, hard work is something that is frowned upon.
“You need to be more open and in the flow. Just visualize and allow it.”
Umm, no. That doesn’t work if you wanna Get Shit Done #GSD and have a bunch of fun doing it.
A great idea takes millions micro steps to complete. It’s just the reality of turning etheric thought forms into tangible, physical experiences or ‘things’ that have the power to change the world.
Right now I’m pulling off 20 hour days.
I know it’s not healthy, but I’m choosing to have a blast because I know it is only temporary.
Right now I am in Vancouver going through my Golf Teacher Training Course so starting next week I’ll be teaching golf clinics, lessons and retreats to people wanting to be a better golfer by learning relaxation and focus techniques that help them to increase power, accuracy and consistency.
We are also in launch-mode for The Great eCourse Adventure and this time the stakes are higher. We’re investing $10,000 into Facebook Ads to grow our community and ripple. With that being said, we are busting our asses to create the ultimate on-boarding experience for people when they come to our website.
The amount of work, self-inquiry and experimentation this takes is way more than we ever imagined.
This week my schedule is:
For some reason the purpose feels so much bigger than my need for a typical 7/8 hours of sleep.
I’m waking up smiling and diving into my work like it’s a devotional practice.
This is my meditation right now.
How can allow myself to stay present, at peace and grateful in the midst of this insane workload, pressure and schedule?
If you catch yourself saying, “I want this or I want that,” then be prepared to put 100% of your daily actions and intentions into achieving that.
The thing about achieving these lofty goals is that we have to allow ourselves to be a beginner and adventure through the unknown. It’s just the reality of doing what we’ve never done. Learn to make friends with it.
Okay, this was only supposed to be an update and now I’m rambling.
Have a good one!
We all have a limited amount of time in our day…
We all have a limited number of days in our life…
Don’t make time for bullshit.
Don’t make time for shitty people.
Life’s too short.
Dear Diary and those who are reading this…
I’ve been missing my writing practice lately. So as a way to bring it back into my life I’m going to start writing in my blog everyday.
My BradleyTMorris.com blog is going to become my outlet for sharing my ideas, life adventures, thoughts, struggles and journey.
My life is taking on so many new directions with becoming a dad, launching The Great eCourse Adventure, playing professional golf and life knows what else is on the horizon….
I’ve been writing our Manifesto for The Great eCourse Adventure. Essentially, breaking down what we believe in and stand for into a series of short, clear, concise statements that summarize why we do what we do and who we do it for.
We’ve probably spent about 20+ hours working on it (so far) and we still have a long way to go.
I know that sounds like a lot of time, but I couldn’t imagine a better use of our time at this stage of the game. The Manifesto acts as a map for every action, project, marketing material we create and move we make with our business. If ever we feel uncertain about a choice, we can draw upon our Manifesto and see if it’s in alignment or out of alignment.
It is the root system of what we create.
Whether your life sucks or you feel like you’re on top of the world, it can always get better.
So if you’re reading this, take a few minutes to do this exercise and see how much better your world can get by switching a few things around.
So you’ve been thinking about creating an eCourse huh?
Of course you have. Who hasn’t?
Creating a freedom lifestyle by teaching what you love (and living off the passive income from eCourse sales) is a pretty wicked dream… and a doable one at that.
There’s a bit of a Gold Rush happening right now as the online education industry surpasses the $100 billion mark this year.
With massive growth comes some big challenges.
One challenge is, everyone’s hunting for gold in the same river and the river is getting crowded.
