Day 471: Drowning Rats and Fireball Shots

Last week I finished up talking about mandates, female business coaches that wanted to be punished, and other things that keep me in trouble.

Speaking of things that get me into trouble…

I was at a friend’s house and a candle was burning.

Here’s our conversation.

Me: I like that candle. It smells like Fireball.

Friend: That’s cinnamon, Karl.

Me: *Ummm…*

While on the topic of Fireball.

I’ve had so much Fireball in my day that when I pee, it burns.

Shit, hold on a minute?!?!

In other news…

Everything you’d say at a funeral should be told at a birthday party.

Please don’t leave your love unspoken.



‘Drowning Rats’

A (brutal) Harvard study many years ago had rats dropped into a glass of water and they measured how long they could tread water before giving up.

On average… it was 15 minutes before they gave up.


Right before they drowned they’d be saved, dried off and then placed back in the glass to tread water again.

Note: they’re pretty exhausted when they go back in for round two.

Question for you…

They lasted 15 minutes the first time, how long do you think they lasted the second time they’re dropped in to tread water?

15 minutes, 10 minutes, 5 minutes, 2 minutes..?


45 hours!


Read that again.

Not the Zoinx part!

Why and how did they do it..?

The Harvard researchers came to the conclusion that since the rats BELIEVED they’d be rescued… they could push their bodies to an insane level.

A similar example to this is people interviewed from the Holocaust would talk of the torment, hunger, starvation, death of their friends, and ridiculously brutal and inhumane conditions…

Interestingly, they said the WORST PART wasn’t that… it was not knowing when it would end.

Possibly a little morbid for a Monday morning.

Speaking of morbid…

Let’s talk about you and your coaching business.

If you knew that if you committed yourself to filling a small room or a webinar with 4 to 10 business owners every week for 90 days…

That ALL YOUR COACHING DREAMS, financial, impact, freedom, and otherwise, would come true…

Would you do it…?

Could you push yourself past the 15-minute mark knowing it’d all work out in the end?

Probably not.

You heard it here first.
