Why Not Almost There?

I had never run a long race in my life, but here I am, in the middle of the 2015 Chicago Marathon. I’m feeling fantastic, even thinking I could go double the distance.

Just being in this race was a mini-miracle. I had heart surgery and back surgery a decade earlier. I could barely stand back then, let alone run.

Nonetheless, I’m fired up and feel better than ever.

Then I see right in front of me— a sign that nearly stops me in my tracks, NOT ALMOST THERE. I try to brush it off but can’t stop thinking about those words. Every step seems heavier, harder, and then I start cramping up. I begin to walk and complain inside and out. I struggle the entire second half but finish (barely) with everything I have after being physically and mentally crushed.

I have never stopped thinking about that sign but that’s fueled a quest to understand the power of the mind, body, and spirit. To understand how we accomplish things. To understand how we become better in the race against time and ourselves.

If you think you can do more, you can. You just need to get out of your same routine, learn new skills and perspectives, and reach beyond your self-made limitations. Easier said than done, and no one does it alone. That’s why I started recording and sharing conversations with world-renowned leaders in entrepreneurship and overall health and wellness.

FOCUS ON THE PROCESS with Daniel Cnossen.

Dan is a Navy Seal, Paralympic gold Medalist, and leadership guru. Dan became a Navy Seal in 2003 and in 2009, Dan was deployed to Afghanistan, in an area of heavy combat. 

There, on a night mission in the mountains, he stepped on an IED, losing both legs in the blast. He would later be awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star with Valor. As part of his rehab, he was introduced to the sports of cross-country skiing and biathlon. Never one to shy from a challenge, he eventually earned a spot on the 2014 U.S. Paralympic Team. At the 2018 Paralympic Games, Dan stole the show, remarkably winning one gold, four silver, and one bronze medal over eight days earning the honor of Best Male Athlete of The Games.

👉🏼IN THIS EPISODE, Dan Cnossen shares his incredibly heroic story of enduring the unthinkable while serving as a Navy Seal and how it forever changed his life.
