In this episode, part two of a two-part series, we continue Ben Mayforth’s story of overcoming staggering physical disabilities to become a 2X World Cup Paraclimber sponsored by The North Face.

Then, pick an action from Ben’s story that resonates most with you and schedule it in your calendar.

Action Principles 

Pick one to do this week:

  1. Be resourceful. Don’t focus on what you don’t have right now. Use the tools you already possess to get started. ACTION: Inventory tools you already have, from skills to connections, and consider how you can use those to reach your goals.
  2. Find your community. When people with similar interests surround you, you will grow faster. It’s a valuable resource of motivation and knowledge. ACTION: Join a community that shares your goals and values.
  3. Create rituals. Repetition has the power to help you focus and overcome obstacles. It also creates a foundation for productivity. ACTION: Develop a small, repetitive action that becomes part of your ritual to prepare for the day.
  4. Be consistent. Success is a series of small, consistent steps towards your goal. ACTION: Schedule a daily routine to remain consistent, and it will become a habit.
