Hey, we're taking a short break. We will be back soon!

Why not me?

The most powerful tool...

I was talking in my group chat with my original GRIT Peeps today and said “I feel like the dreams I never thought were possible for me, have a real shot of coming true now. I’ve gone from ‘who do I think I am dreaming like that?’ to ‘why not me?’”

First, let me back up, the original Peeps are my go to girls, my #foreverfriends and we turn in to each other for damn near everything. GRIT is full of these kinds of relationships. I have Team Never Quit, my Kindhearted Badasses team, my Peeps, Wayne’s Angels, my boys, the leaders, and tons more groups that all bring something different to me.

Back to my story, I told you yesterday I signed up for AK Turner’s Memoir Camp. I also went to Joys Collective Market and took down the space I’ve lived and grown in for the last 3 years and moved back to my original tiny shelf space that grew The Button Buck to The Compton Co;. Now that little shelf will incubate Kindhearted Badass.

I read Dave Hollis’s new book “Get Out Of Your Own Way” recently which forced me to look at the fact that I was holding on to an identity that no longer served me. (Go preorder it...)

Four year ago Heather does not look anything like the Heather of today. And that’s ok! Actually it’s exactly what’s supposed to happen in life. If I would not have had any personal growth in four years, that would be alarming.

How did I come about having this growth and getting brave enough to change directions?

GRIT. I am forced to do hard things every day inside StoryAthlete which then embeds into my psyche that I am capable of doing anything.

I didn’t think I was capable of making it through the first 28 day cycle in October. But I did it.

I didn’t think I was capable of running 8 miles. But I did it.

I didn’t think I was capable of letting go of an identity that no longer served me, but here I am, doing it.

Participating in GRIT, forcing yourself into physical submission and then writing your way through your issues, is the most powerful tool in confidence I’ve ever seen. And it’s not just me seeing these results.

My Pam is on her third month of GRIT and yesterday she signed up for AK Turner’s Memoir Camp as well. Her whole life she’s wanted to write a book and now at 56 years old, she’s attacking that because she has proven to herself for three months that she’s capable of so much more than she thought she was.

If you join GRIT you’ll definitely see body improvement, but much more importantly you’ll start to believe in yourself in ways you never thought possible and that’s worth every ounce of sweat and sore muscle (you’re going to be sore, so sore 🥴).

Deadline to sign up for next round is March 2 and we start March 4th. If you want in on this goodness, shoot me a message. Your dreams are waiting for you to believe you can chase them down, but they won’t wait forever.
