Some days you are going to feel like nothing is going right and you are failing at life. Your bank account is a mess. You are overwhelmed by emails and don’t know where to start.
Some days you are going to feel like you are going BACKWARDS. What are you going to do about those days? What are you going to do about the thoughts that get you down?
You have two choices.
- You can CHOOSE to get depressed
- or you can choose to LEARN from the experience.
Every time I feel like things are out of control, I look inside myself to determine where I want to go. What actions can you take right now that will get you where you want to go?
If you allow yourself to become overwhelmed by all the shit bogging you down, you will get more shit bogging you down. You have the power to choose how you react to the situation.
- If you don’t like where you are, CHANGE IT.
- If you don’t like your relationship, change it.
- If you don’t like your body, change it.
- If you don’t like your bank account, change it.
You can’t change the things you don’t like if you continue focusing on what’s going wrong. The only way you can change things is by focusing on what you can do to get BETTER.
Scarcity is the mother of INNOVATION.
Every time I feel like I am going backward, I know I need to innovate. When things weren’t going well in my relationship with my wife, I knew it was time to innovate. I knew it was time to innovate when my business got stale. When I got bored with my workouts, I knew it was time to innovate.
Innovation is created by the feeling of FAILURE.
Right now, maybe you are feeling overwhelmed or like you are failing. Maybe you feel like you don’t have enough. This is an opportunity for you to create something that will take you where you want to go.
Who gives a fuck where you’ve been? Focus on where you are going and what you can do today to get you there.
INNOVATE. Try shit even if you fail.
The name of the game is EXPANSION. The only way you can create progress is if you continue to EXECUTE. Even if you fail, you have to continue executing.
Those who WIN are not the ones who have the brightest ideas. Winners are the ones who don’t give up even if they are failing.
You are a winner if you keep trying even when everyone around you doubts you. You must have perseverance and say, “Fuck this. This is not the end. This is an opportunity for me to start again and have a new beginning.”
Many of you are in relationships right now where you need to end that shit because you continue lying to yourself by saying things are not as bad as they seem. Many of you are in a business right now where you lie to yourself by saying things aren’t as bad as they really are.
Draw a line in the sand and that is your new beginning. This is the time for you to innovate… to restart. Don’t wait until tomorrow, next week or next year.
Make a decision to cut shit out of your life and focus on what you can do to get yourself where you want to go. If you want to win, you can’t focus on the shit you don’t have or on your failures.
You have to learn from your experiences. Accept that you are not the experience. You are the experiencer. We have the power to choose what we have to do today.
