The power of a wild goal

Your mind and your body will evolve regardless of whether you are directing it or not. The habits and unintentional things that you do pile up until they become your lifestyle or the way you run your business.

A year from now I was going to run 50 miles. That was a big decision that I made and I didn’t tell anybody that was my goal when I started running … going into the mindset of “I’m not accepting the fact that people have to slow down, or have to pull back on what they think they can do … as they get older”. (Eric Deeter)

Because everything is evolving with what you give it, rather be proactive, take the initiative, and sit at the helm of your life, instead of watching it pass you by.

Be mindful of your words

Be careful not to put yourself down, or to internalize the way other people speak to you as the indicator of your abilities.

The words that they use were bringing their mindset down … you do not have to accept [what people say], all you have to do is say “well, I’m not good at it yet” because … if you’re saying you’re not good at it, it puts a damper on things, but if you say “I’m not good at it yet” it means [that] you’re on your way and still working on it. (Eric Deeter)

How you speak can impact the way you perceive the world around you, so make sure that you give yourself – and the world – room to see you grow into a more developed and experienced version of yourself.

Eric’s advice to private practitioners

You can do more than you think. People tend to think in patterns, so find a way to change the routine of these patterns to get yourself to do something truly epic and light a fire in your ambition and passion.
