How a joint New Year’s Resolution made two brothers
better fathers, husbands and leaders
“Ok, our goal is quite simple. We promise to each other to do at least one exercise activity every day.
Doesn’t matter if you are sick, traveling, or tired. And to keep each other honest,
we share one pic doing our activity every day.”
With the above text solidifying their commitment, authors and brothers, Stephen and Jim Gilliland embarked upon a journey of crazy workout challenges that increased in intensity as the year progressed; 10,000 push ups each in March became 30,000 push ups by December.
At the time, they were each searching for something more – more from their relationship as brothers and more from their middle-age bodies. And as each month passed, they discovered the unexpected gift of what it means to live more fully as connected brothers, fathers, husbands and successful leaders.
Join them as they share their story. Like them, you may uncover scars you didn’t know you had, grow muscles and inner strength, and find authentic support in connecting more deeply with someone else.
They give language to the inner journey of life through lessons on:
· “I will” commitment and achieving audacious goals
· Asking for help and finding genuine connection
· Recognizing limits and preparing to fail
· Embracing “should be fine” as a mantra against doubt
· Practicing empathy and reaching out in times of loss
