Life is a Marathon: Bruce Van Horn – NSM Podcast, Ep. 18
Bruce Van Horn is an Author, Speaker, Teacher and Coach who helps people to ReStory their Passion, Purpose & Vision. Bruce is the creator and host of the “Life is a Marathon Podcast” and author of the books, “Worry No More! 4 Steps to Stop Worrying and Start Living” and ” You Can Go The Distance.”
His story is incredible.
Bruce’s story ranged from the familiar (setting aside his creative passions early in life in exchange for corporate pursuits) to heart-wrenchingly unique (losing a daughter, and almost losing himself in a battle against cancer). The objective and honest way in which Bruce describes his journey, how it has shaped him and what’s he’s learned along the way will touch and inspire you.
During the course of the conversation, I lost count of how many powerful and important little nuggets of hard-earned wisdom Bruce imparted upon the conversation. There were a lot of them, as you’ll here. But here are just a few key takeaways that stood out from my chat with Bruce:
- In order to transform anything in your life, you need to first make the decision to do so. And you need to make that decision more than once. Much more than once. I love the way Bruce describes this so I’ll leave it at that for now and let you listen for yourself.
- Through all the “problems” Bruce felt he had, he was able to boil it all down to recognizing he really only had just one problem: A Bruce problem. He speaks on it with remarkable clarity and accountability. This point alone one is a little piece of magical knowledge that anyone can apply in their life to great effect, if they’re only as willing to accept responsibility as Bruce.
- Stop criticizing yourself and start coaching yourself. I loved it when Bruce said that he finally recognized the negative voice in his head and that once he did, he was able to say to it, “You’re a liar.”
