Kirby Roy is a man with world-record setting kahunas.
On this episode of Sport Science you can watch him take a world-record-setting kick to the balls (without even wincing).
You’ll see he doesn’t just take a misdirected graze as you often see in kick-boxing or MMA bouts, Kirby is ballsy enough to take a 1,100 pound blow from Justice Smith, a 6 ft 8 in, 290 pound American Gladiator and mixed martial artist.
While it is less important to know the two reasons he is able to take it like a super man—one physical, one mental—it is important is to know the secret to how Kirby has trained his mind and body to sustain such a devastating blow.
And here’s the secret: there is no secret!
Kirby doesn’t have balls of steel or any other hidden skill. He is just an ordinary fellow who has trained himself to do something extraordinary, by taking a number of ordinary steps.
Training his body and mind, Kirby has been kicked in the balls thousands of times over a period of five years. Like building muscle at the gym, he started off with light blows, and slowly over time worked his way up to being able to smile in the face of a ball-busting blow.
So although he is able to do something seemingly extraordinary, you see, if you are nuts enough, with a ballsy commitment and the right process, it is something all of us men can train ourselves to do. Not that you would want to of course, but it does get you thinking about what extraordinary things are possible if you simply work at it every day.
In my career books, I share with you the two secrets to getting what you want: First, you must know what you want. Second, you must build a system to get it, which means developing a process you can follow every day.
And while there is little secret to my two secrets, here is the real secret.
When once asked about what leads to success, famous oil tycoon H.L. Hunt said, “First, decide exactly what it is you want. Most people never do that. Second, determine the price you’re going to have to pay to get it, and then resolve to pay that price.”
Most people don’t have the balls for that.
And while that might seem all too hard for many people, the real secret to getting what you want is that rarely does it require doing anything extraordinary, as much as it requires committing yourself to take ordinary steps every day.
In transforming my career and life I did nothing extraordinary. I read books. I wrote ideas. I took basic steps every day.
Yet, what really paid off for me is that I did it consistently for a decade, reading thousands of books, writing thousands of pages of ideas, taking steps for thousands of days that eventually moved me from where I was to where I am today.
It wasn’t easy to do, yet because I was getting kicked in the nuts every day in my career, it was easy for me to stay motivated and keep taking the steps to creating the career and life I truly love.
Now, fortunately for you, having spent tens of thousands of hours on these ideas, today I have built a simple approach that you can easily get working for you.
Rather than putting your head down and working hard hoping it leads you to what you want, the approach I share with you in The Guide simply enables you to easily keep moving forward building the career and life you truly want.
This is something anyone can do, if only you are willing to begin taking steps.
Some three thousand years ago, the influential Chinese philosopher, Lao-Tzu, wrote: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
To get whatever you want simply requires you begin taking steps, and the question is: Do you have the balls to get started?
