Episode Info

Episode Info: it.” “…sometimes the greatest gift is if someone can just nudge us a little or maybe even pick up our head a little bit to question something, or re-evaluate something, or maybe make a slightly different choice.” “People have asked if I’m positive all the time, and I’m not. I have down moments, I have negative moments, I have moments of questioning. But I really do think ultimately it’s a choice of what route we want to take… We can note and feel that things are negative or be aware that they’re imposing or daunting or crappy but still choose positivity as our approach to moving forward.” “One thing that I wish I could continually offer is to just to not fear asking ourselves: Is this really what I want to do?

Figure out a way to start, and go in with the expectation of, as long as I show up, I have nailed it. Separate from any result, separate from any expectation, and simply set the goal that I’m gonna show and I’m gonna do this, and that is such a win. And then we’ll get all the info of how it actually went and what we can do better, but whatever it is you want to do, fricken start doing it.” “Everything’s a process. Baby steps, baby steps, baby steps. Lay down bricks then take a step back and that’s a damn cool house.” Mentioned in Episode Comedy Store Laugh Factory University of Pennsylvania Lacrosse Jerry Seinfeld American Ninja Warrior TedX Rob Moore The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level(share worthy) Connect with Alex WebsiteTwitterFacebookInstagram The post NCU Podcast #007: Alex Weber on the Importance of Sucking, Moving Past Doubt/Nerves, and His Experience as a Motivational Comedian/on American Ninja Warrior appeared first on Next Creator Up. ......
