MENTAL PREPARATION:

As you have heard before “ It’s mostly mental.” The number one best preparation is to know WHY you are entering this challenge. Your "why" must go beyond simply "overcoming my issue."

  • Is it to strengthen or repair your marriage or relationships?

  • Shed a compulsive behavior, letting your best self control your actions?

  • Give energy to a healing process? Find post-traumatic growth rather than death?

  • Mark a new beginning? 

  • Enter a new place where you concretize who you are and what you want to be?

  • Know you are capable of reaching the end of yourself physically, emotionally, and beyond?

  • To push yourself forward and grab ahold of more than you have been living?

  • Get outside of yourself, put your team first, feel connected to something greater than yourself?

Spend time figuring this out- dig deep.

This will be critical to your success.
