Connecting The Dots

Hi there.

Mel OKeefe:
Fascinating, always fascinating to get answers to that question: How some people overcome their obstacles. For me, more often than not, I find myself just using excuses. So what can I tell you? It's not the easiest question to answer.

Mel OKeefe:
Before I ask this question, I'm going to give you a little bit of a background with some history. I'm going to go back 25 years living in San Diego. I'm in a really bad place and really bad. I'm 40, 50 pounds heavier than what I am right now. So I'm fat, are not in a bad relationship and my work performance is just going downhill. And so I was lucky that I bumped into a coach like you bumped into me. And she asked me a very thought-Provoking question. She said, how does achieving some goals help with achieving others? And what it did was it allowed me to connect the dots. So it was OK, if I eat healthy and exercise, I reach my goal weight. I never got killed, and if I reach my goal weight, I'm feeling good, my performance work, it's going to get better and if I get better, then I'm going to make more money. If I make more money, it's going to alleviate some of the financial strain that was going on in my relationship. And if that happens, then my relationship with my girlfriend gets better. So that was what it was. I get it. If I do this and I didn't I did not implement it right out the gate, I had to go a little bit further down into my self, wallowing. I guess what I always look is I was quite content being miserable. I just had to get more miserable. So I remember I signed up to do the LaHoya half marathon, and I've done it a few times before when I was in better shape. And, you know, my ego said, it's a half marathon. How hard can it be? You've done a ton. So I quit at mile six. And I was sitting on the sidewalk watching, you know, the slow walkers pass me by and waiting for my girlfriend to pick me up and basically I was miserable. I was a failure. And shortly thereafter, I implemented that train of thought, what happens if … So fast forward two years I'm probably 47, 48 and I am an Iron Man finisher, I finish the Ironman triathlon. If you don't know what that is, it's two point four mile swim. I was in the ocean off San Diego, 112 mile bike and a marathon, twenty six point two miles. So that's my back story.

Mel OKeefe:
I'm going to ask you, how does achieving some goals help with achieving others? You know the format by now. I'm curious to see what your dot connecting looks like. Can't wait. Thanks.
