This past weekend I was down in Austin, TX to record an episode of the Project Endure Podcast with Nick Bare (owner of Bare Performance Nutrition) someone who’s had a massive impact on me for a long time. It was a special conversation that meant a lot to me and I’m still processing the deep, genuine and meaningful words that we exchanged (video podcast here).


One thing that sticks out the me from our conversation (more than the rest) is the concept of transitions. Like Bob Goff once said, we are all rough drafts of the people that we are becoming and that’s what this short blog is about – the art of becoming who only we can be.

Life transitions are often challenging because they bring with them a season of change. While hard, these periods of life also present us with incredible opportunities to leave behind parts of the old as we embrace pieces of the new; to let go of what was so that we can grab onto what can be.

Change is inevitable, growth is optional.

The process of becoming requires us to be intentional with our decisions – to choose what we want over what we think the world wants for us. Living from the inside-out is to be authentic and that’s easier said than done. Most of us spend our lives conforming to what we think we “should be doing” at the expense of what we could be doing. We only get to live once and so we might as well pursue our full potential and greatest impact – it won’t be easy but it will be worth it.


This blog ends here but I hope your thoughts continue on: who are you becoming?

My mother said to me, ‘If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope. ‘ Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso.”

Become who only you can.
