Burn your Boats!
The famous explorer Hernando Cortez landed on the shores of Vera Cruz, Mexico in 1519 and wanted his army to conquer the land for Spain. He faced an uphill battle: a fierce enemy, disease and scarce resources. Cortez knew his men wanted to quit and sail back to Spain. He knew that his men would not fight well with such an attitude. So he did something to properly motivate them. He wanted them to know that there was only one possible course. Success or death. As they marched inland to do battle, Cortez ordered one of his lieutenant’s back to the beach with a single instruction: "Burn our Boats."

Commit to something challenging for you. Easy commitments are a good way to build momentum, but remember no one ever lived their Bucket Life by making easy commitments. That’s the opposite of Living your Bucket Life. That’s living a life of mediocrity. And on your deathbed, you'll regret every wasted day.
So commit to something great today ...
And Burn Your Boats!

What BIG commitment are you willing to make RIGHT NOW! Tell me below!
I'm commonly asked, "What's on YOUR bucket list?"
That's an easy answer! Because I only have One Thing.
That's a goal with a lot of built-in Motivation!
Let's break it down:
It has a BIG Challenge attached.
Spinning Fire. It’s never easy. It freaks me out each time. But Spinning Fire puts me into my personal Bucket Bliss. By combining the brilliant ideas behind Flow and Element, we see that having a High Challenge at something we Love To Do while feeling comfortable in our Skills and Resources, Puts us into a State of BLISS. Our most desired state.
It has a Health goal.
Six Pack. I've never had one. I'm Intimidated As Hell that I've committed to this goal. But it IS DRIVING me and Keeping me Focused like a crazy person!
When designing your life, always add something from your Health bucket list.
It has Accountability.
I've included my friends to keep me focused and Accountable. Knowing that others are watching will motivate you to stay the course. Especially when times get tough.
It has a Time limit.
This years Burning Man Festival.
Setting a time limit is probably the Single Most Important part of setting your goal.
Here are the basics to properly setting a Motivating goal on your Bucket List:
To help you remember them, think C.H.A.T. Challenge, Health, Accountability, Timed.
Tapping into the science behind Flow, Element and Bliss will help your progress immensely.
So instead of ‘Work out more’, how about ‘Run a 10K’?
Much more Challenging!
Always Bring your health into the picture. Let it inspire you. If your One Thing is to travel overseas, then Get Healthier in order to travel better.
So instead of Travel to China, how about 'Walk 5 miles on the Great Wall of China'?
That will inspire you to get into better shape.
Announce your plans to others. Post it! Join with your friends if at all possible. If not, reach out to MeetUp groups on the same journey as you. But either way, let others know your plans and your success rate will sky rocket!
So instead of ‘Go to the gym more’, how about ‘Go to Body Pump class at my gym every Wednesday night and say hello to everyone I recognize’?
That will keep you Accountable, especially every time you say, ‘See you next week!'
By setting your own deadline, you are committing to yourself. Now, it's on your calendar. Now, it must be addressed! Always, Always, Always set a date. Give yourself permission to move that date if needed, but ALWAYS Set a Date!
So instead of ‘Learn Spanish’, how about 'Speak Spanish to my Grandmother all day on her next birthday’?
