The way he felt, and what he believed about himself, affected his capacity to become who he always wanted to be. It wasn’t that he did not have the skillsets to achieve his goals; it was that from a young age he was shamed into thinking that he wasn’t good enough. His reality became a belief that he indeed was not good enough. The skills were there all along, waiting to be released. All he needed to do was believe that he could. Even when he tried and failed, he kept believing. Anything worth doing is worth failing at until you succeed.

 

After years of pursuing the arts, music, film, theater, and some fight choreography, he began to engage more heavily in physical training. He realized how much fitness supported his sense of self. It was through these athletic endeavors that he finally began to connect with his body and mind. From there, he started on the path of transformation into the person he wanted to be. By incorporating the mind and the spirit, we are bound to succeed. Our bodies, our minds, and our spirits are not separate; they are one. Always remember, there are no impossibilities . . . only challenges.
