The PAIN Of REGRET (Don’t Let This Happen To You)

A couple of  years ago I was faced with a major life decision.One of those that’s so big, you lose sleep over it.

One of those that’s so big, whenever you’re not working,
your mind drifts to it and you find yourself thinking about
it – and all the endless possibilities that could result from
it.

One of those that is so big, so scary, it literally consumes
every waking hour and even your dreams.

I had planned for years – nearly 7 to be exact – to do
something BIG – to go somewhere that made my heart
feel alive.

And then, everything suddenly appeared for to line up
for me to take this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I had
about an 12-month timeline to plan it all out.

I felt like I was supposed to take my family on a month-
long trip to literally “get away” and write and work – kind
of like a working vacation.

And then all those things – all those indicators – seemed
to vaporize right before my eyes about 5 months out.

There was suddenly a major problem – the cost.

What was in reach looked suddenly out of the question
due to some nasty things that happened to us.

I had already invested so much time, energy, and some
money into this dream and it all looked as if it was going
to be washed away…
(Maybe you know how that is…)But I still couldn’t shake the feeling that we were supposed
to – no – wait – NEEDED to go
.

And I was concerned that taking this trip was going to
break us because as I mentioned, those indicators vanished
before my very eyes due to those very nasty things…

Bad, bad stuff – like “keep you awake at night” kind of
stuff.
In fact, I wrestled with this decision for 5 whole months, and
the last two months were literally agonizing – as I tried to
figure out every pro and every con – stay, go, stay, go…And at the last minute – BAM – something else happened –

Another setback – how could I go? How could we go?

Actually, I’m pretty sure most people would have played
it safe and cancelled the trip.

However, I knew – KNEW deep in my heart – down DEEP
in my innermost being –

That SOMETHING was awaiting me when I got to my

destination.That in spite of every obstacle I was facing, if I didn’t take
a calculated risk, and go on the trip, I would regret my
decision –

One based off fear and scarcity and lack –

And it would haunt me forever.

And that was something I couldn’t live with.

So, in spite of the adversity we were facing, and after talking
it over with my better half, we collectively decided to go
for it –

That we really had nothing to lose and everything to
gain
.

And you know what?

Not only was the trip awesome, but it laid the groundwork
for where I find myself now and what I’m doing now.

I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I am better off
now having taken that risk and gone for it.

And I also know without a shadow of a doubt that if I hadn’t
taken that risk, I would be currently living with the pain
of regret.

The pain of knowing I could have done something, should
have done something, but because I was scared of what
“might be” or what the perceived cost would be – I chose
not to act.

The pain of “what if…”

Why am I telling you this story?

Because I’m concerned that you may be wrestling with some
of the very same fears.

I want you to know I’m in your corner – pulling for you –
rooting for you –

Believing in you – that you can do what you set your mind
and your heart to doing –

To FINALLY achieve your goals – the ones you had when
you got your first KB and, if you’re like most people – have
eluded you thus far…

You’ve seen my “once-in-a-lifetime” offer for the “Encyclopedia
of Kettlebell Secrets”  but your concerned – maybe even a little
scared – that it won’t work out for you…That it might cost too much…

There’s too much at risk…

I understand completely. I’ve been there.

Which is why I’ve made you a virtually unheard of and
outrageous guarantee
(which incidentally I did not have
when I took my “leap of faith”).

AND hooked you up with some very easy and convenient
payment options
to ensure that you’re completely taken
care of
.

I don’t want fear of risk, and fear of loss to stand in your
way of getting as lean and as strong as you know deep
down inside you can be, should be, want to be…

get the lean, strong body you were aiming for when
you first started using KBs.
You know you’re worth it. You know you deserve it.

Talk soon.

P.S. I don’t know if you’ve ever lived with the pain of regret,
but I can tell you it’s strong, very strong.

I had an opportunity to live an adventure in a foreign
country when I was 20 years old – to chase one of my
passions – but I chose not to simply because I was scared.

I’ve often wondered how my life would’ve been different
if I’d taken that opportunity…

But I will never find out.

Don’t make the same mistake with your KB workouts –

Because I’ve eliminated ALL the risk for you.
