Today we’re talking about creating change in our lives and in the world through conscious commitment.
There are some amazing things that have been accomplished in the world, and they all began with conscious commitment. Close your eyes and think about something that you have created or accomplished in your life. Was there a commitment to that creation?
Were there moments along the way where you felt completely defeated and thought that it was too hard to go on? If you chose to keep moving forward, it was because of that commitment to yourself and what drove you to start in the first place.
Today’s guest, Brady Silverwood, is a 24-year-old from San Diego that recently ran 3,311 miles across the United States and raised over $40,000 for charity while doing so. He joins me today to share how his cross-country journey–while the hardest mental and physical challenge of his life–became the ultimate healing experience for him and what he learned along the way.
- How all great accomplishments inevitably begin with a high level of conscious commitment
- Why Brady Silverwood set a conscious commitment to run across the United States
- Doing the inner work within ourselves in order to create greatness outside of ourselves
- Showing up for ourselves, especially on the hardest days when we’re lacking motivation
- How obstacles and change help us progress, grow, and move forward in a greater way
“Show up on the days that you don’t feel it. It doesn’t matter what the result is, how many reps at the gym you get in, or how many pages you write. Just write a word. Just do one rep. Just show up.” – Brady Silverwood
Brady Silverwood is a 24-year-old from San Diego who recently embarked on and completed a 218-day-long 3,311-mile journey across the United States and raised over $40,000 for charity while doing so.
Brady personally battled with depression for a few years and many people he knows have been affected by suicide, so part of his fundraising efforts were dedicated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness in hopes to start a conversation on suicide and to end the stigma surrounded by mental illness.
Brady just started running only about a year ago. He was going through depression and lacked confidence before his big run. Running helped him to overcome obstacles, gain his confidence back, and change his life.
Brady hopes to continue inspiring people and encouraging them that they, too, can overcome challenges in their lives and choose positivity in unlikely circumstances.
“Remind yourself as you’re going through something that you’ve gotten to this point. You’re still here, and you’ve made it through these obstacles. That can give you the courage to take on that new obstacle.” – Brady Silverwood
