Since I work for myself I can usually arrange my schedule to meet my needs. Up until a couple of years ago I would work over 50 hours a week. When I decided to prioritize everything in my life, I cut out a lot of the things that i didn’t think were productive. So to tell you the truth i cut my work weeks well down below 40 hours. Put it this way most people don’t think that i have a job because I’m usually in the gym every day starting at 9 am and leaving when we are done. That might be 11 and it might be 12. I travel once in a while, which might or might not be for work. Last year it was for a bunch of obstacle races.
The way i see it is that i found the things in my life that were holding me back or dragging me down or were just a waste of time. I cut them out. I decided that i would rather spend time on trying to build something related to fitness or making people better. I still have some things that I feel that I may be missing but overall I am living my passion.
While I searched for something that would allow me to really make a career out of my new passion, I came across a lot of other people who are living similar lives. They have an appreciation for many of the same things that I do and they are motivated and inspiring. They all have set their goals and they focus on them. One of these people is Chase Reynolds a running back for the St. Louis Rams. We started training together during the 2013 NFL Offseason. We pushed each other hard and every day hit a new level of motivation. We realized that we bother were interested in helping other people achieve their goals and we decided to start a motivational brand. The brand is The Promise∞Line™. Chase’s entire life is based on it and my life has been more fulfilling since I found it. If you really want something bad enough you are willing to work on it every day. Stay focused on it. We wanted a brand that has a positive impact on how it makes people think and feel. It’s a reminder of what goals they have set for themselves. We call our goals promises and we don’t like to break them.
In creating The Promise∞Line™ I have had to start working over 50 hour work weeks again, but I am still getting it in at the gym from 9 until we are done. I’m still keeping my priorities and this time I am working for my passion. I have made Promises to myself and Chase my business partner and we pan on building a brand with an impact.
