Yes, today the infamous 60-Second handstand occurred after several failed attempts, and almost 6 weeks of “trying.” This is what I learned…

If you’ve been “trying” to do something, but for some reason (or reasons) you haven’t been able to do it yet, this will help you…

Is it possible that there’s a part of you that doesn’t believe you can?

About 6 weeks ago I decided to do a handstand after not doing one for about 20 years. I used to do handstands, and walk on my hands, quite often.

However, it’s been a LONG time.

So I made decision to do a 60-second handstand.

BUT…(the big BUT) physically it wasn’t happening. I thought I could mentally overcome my physical limitations.

It didn’t happen.

I decided to do the work to build the strength and strategy necessary to do it.

Then, after identifying my mental “belief” block, I simply stopped thinking and DID.

You can too!

1. Declare your desire.

2. Do the work to get the strength and strategy you need to do it.


4. Stop “thinking” about it.

5. Simply…do it.

6. Celebrate.

Where in your life are you attempting to do something, but for some reason you haven’t been able to put it together?

Is it possible that you’ve been thinking about it way too much?

Is it possible that what’s required is for you to simply do it?

Stop thinking about it, and simply DO, my dear.
