Would you like to rise above your fears to live a life without limits? In today’s podcast, Khierstyn talks with Joel Runyon, of Impossible HQ, about how you can conquer those fears and achieve what seems impossible.
Joel shares his inspiring story of how he turned his “can’ts” into “cans”.
He stopped clinging to excuses and acted; Started running. Joel trained for and ran marathons, triathlons, and eventually, an ultra-marathon in Antarctica! The tough physical discipline required to master these tasks led him to develop a winning mindset that can be applied to any area of life. In this episode, we will learn how he did it so we too can go beyond what we thought was impossible. We can go limitless!
The First Step: Accept NO excuses and Act
Joel candidly tells the story of how he was at rock bottom in his life. Everything seemed impossible to him. His first step was to allow no more excuses in his life. He was finally sick of his own excuses, and that’s what it took. Sick enough to be motivated.
His second step was to find something he could do. Then he did it. He took control of his physical accomplishment. He did not choose what most would deem a reasonable goal. No, Joel went for the impossible. He knew he could run so he set his sights on running a triathlon. Then he started running. and did what others are afraid to and went for it. He trained, did it, accomplished it, and then set the next goal higher.
Along the way, he developed a winning mindset that now allows him to live without limits in every area of his life. You can too… if you ditch excuses, go limitless and determine to do the impossible.
If You Can’t Do This, You Don’t Have What It Takes to Go Limitless
Joel fills us in on his 30 Day Cold Therapy Challenge. It is a challenging feat for most, though not impossible for anyone. It is, however, highly uncomfortable. That is the key to how it works its magic. The cold therapy gives you daily practice at “cowboying up”, taking a deep breath, and doing that which you REALLY do not want to do.
What is the challenge? It’s simple. You intentionally take a five-minute-long cold shower, daily, for thirty days. The purpose is to learn to discipline yourself to do the things you naturally don’t want to do. You are purposefully creating discomfort, then working through it. That’s empowering. That conquers fear by helping you realize the head mess you experience beforehand is the worst of it. No more need to fear. Without fear, you don’t need limits. You can live a limitless life of your dreams.
It could be just a few cold showers away!
Joel Applied These Same Strategies to GO LIMITLESS and Compete in an Ultra-Marathon, in Antarctica!
Here, Joel tells the tale of how he applied the strategy of doing the impossible to eventually compete in an ultra-marathon. That is a total of 100K… 10K, ten times. Also, it was in Antarctica, where it is so cold, there is no wildlife. It’s a fascinating story of how anyone can go limitless and make their dreams come true.
How Does Choosing the Challenge Train Your Mind to be Limitless?
The real value in the cold challenge is in how it trains your brain to ignore fears and persevere until you have done the impossible. The battleground, in those moments before you turn on the cold water, is in your mind. You’re scared. You don’t want to do it. More than that, you REALLY don’t want to do it. It’s easy to come up with dozens of reasons not to.
In that moment of no turning back, you decide to fear not and go for it. WOW! Yes, it is shocking, but you did it. You did not die and you can do it again. The wonderful thing is, the next time, conquering those fears will be a little bit easier. You tested your mental capabilities and won!
That is how Joel did the impossible over and over again. You can go limitless too, if you accept the challenge.
How Adding Hours a Day of Workouts to His Schedule Increased Joel’s Productivity
Joel tells how adding intense physical training to his schedule made his him more efficient and productive. It forces you to step up and get serious about how you manage your time because it pushes your limits.
It develops character, consistency, and self-discipline. When you learn to push yourself physically and exceed your own limits, nothing seems impossible anymore. In the process of all the physical training, you find you have disciplined your mind to give you the edge you need to go limitless in every area of your life.
