THE BELL (0:47)
One of my favorite authors Steven Pressfield, wrote the best selling book Do The Work. It’s about battling the resistance that all artist & entrepreneurs face when they finally sit down to write a song, market an album, prep a speech, finish a script, stand in front of a camera, or make gut-wrenching business decisions. In the book, Steven talks about Navy Seals and their struggle and plight. As it turns out, in SEAL training, they have a bell. When a candidate can’t take the agony any longer; the 6-mile ocean swims; the 15-mile full-load runs; or the physical and mental torments—when he’s had enough and he’s ready to quit, he walks up and rings the bell. That’s it. It’s over. He has dropped out.

Aaron nailed it! Once the Navy Seal rings the bell he's out of the game forever. However, artists can ring the bell over and over and they're never "out of the game!" They always have the opportunity to try again the next day! That's the real "No Bell" Prize!

We are rewarded for not being tolled by the bell.

My dad was a Navy Seal and he always told me I have to build mental toughness. And the only way to do that is NOT to ring the bell.

When terror grips and all seems night, working keeps the goal in sight. :-)

Yes, we can always quit and move into another venture. But then will we confront the same challenge again? And then will we stick with it or quit Again?

Sometimes I want to reach up and ďbang the gong.Ē But youíre right Michael, no one will hear me, really. So Iíll just keep on doing the work, climbing that mountain, not knowing for sure whether Iíll ever reach the top.
