The story of how I healed my knees so quickly is kind of like that 10 year overnight entrepreneur success story.
For this particular video (and blog), I’m not going to write much. I encourage you to actually watch and listen to this whole story if you want to learn what is most important to take away from my journey.
What I will tell you here is that pursuing “the freedom to” (the freedom to run and hike again, in my case) is a different path than pursuing “freedom from” (freedom from knee pain, trauma etc).
And what you will hear in my story is how the freedom to run was achieved once I set my mind on that goal, let nothing stop me, celebrated every win no matter how small and how this happened very quickly when I partnered with the right person.
The external factors (who, what, where, when, how), and the internal factors (our beliefs, mindset, perspective, focus, persistence, curiosity, gumption etc).
If our internal factors are not in alignment with our external environment, achieving freedom becomes difficult or impossible. However, when we consciously choose to align ourselves (internally) with external factors that match who we are and what our goals are…practically nothing can stop us.
And in the end, the truth is – the only thing that will ever stop us is ourselves. If the external or internal environments aren’t where they need to be, it is solely our decision to take it into account and nominate ourselves as the responsible party that will make the necessary changes to get us where we want to go.
Finally, having said all that – I believe in honoring “what is” and “what was.” I believe in honoring our bodies vs dominating them with our mind over matter mindsets. I believe in partnering with our bodies, instead of seeking to conquer them with our will to win what is pleasurable, without holding ourselves to account for that which is necessarily uncomfortable – recognizing that if we’re experiencing the opposite of freedom, it’s because we imprisoned ourselves….and only by honorably shouldering the burden of that responsibility can we earn the freedom we seek.
