Do you trust yourself? Most of us don't ask that question too often as we naturally tend to think that we all do. What many of us don't realize is that your level of self-trust can be different about different things. You may trust your instincts and yourself in some things, like driving your car or caring for pets, for example. But what about when it comes to making big commitments or decisions? Do you trust your intuition and reasoning to make decisions that are actually yours and makeYOU happy and not someone else?
No matter how you handled yesterday, there is nothing you can do about it now. Whatever tomorrow has to offer has yet to be unveiled – and you have no control over it. The only time you can control is NOW – so bring your A-GAME and make the best of it.
You may think you can just do it tomorrow – but tomorrow is a myth because there is always a tomorrow. If you are not going to do it now, then you may never actually get around to doing it. Make the best of the now and get right to what you planned to do.
Excuses are fertilizers to failure. They will always exist. The secret is to be stronger than your excuses. If you want an excuse to not get into your workout gear today, you will surely find many. The problems are never the potency of your excuse, it is the frailty of your commitment.
| We have been there before. We know what it feels like. We know the feeling of “nothing is working” — the feeling that we have no choice but to just throw in the towel and let it go. But we are here to tell you that you do not have to quit.
Life is not fair. It never gives you what you want or what you deserve, it will only give you what you stubbornly demand for — and that is exactly where you need to be and what you need to do. Sometimes, you just need to come to the point where you decide that giving up is not an option no matter what is going on around you.
| The richest plots of land on Earth are not diamond deposits or oil wells, they are graveyards — enriched with all the talents and abilities that will never be used again.
Life is short. If you are not willing to go all the way, then do not even start. It is either you go hard or you go home! If you want success, you need to be ready to bend your back, roll up your sleeves and sweat it out. Some people do not push themselves as hard as they can.
We all love the idea of success and we all want it. However, you should not cross your two legs sipping tea when you are supposed to be working your butt off. Success only comes to those who are willing to pay its price and it can only be bought with the currency of hard labor and deliberate intention.
We do not believe in survival. We want to live in abundance and that is going to come with a lot of hard work, sacrifice and commitment. Sometimes you hit rock bottom and you may have to start all over again and it can be really painful. Life is easy when you have not failed, but it gets complicated in the face of failure and obstacles. You need to know how to hang in there when the going gets tough.
There are no two people in this world who are exactly alike. We have traits we all share, but we are very different from one other — and you must come to terms with this. You are not in competition with anyone in regard to the way you look or the way you think. You are you — and you deserve to be treated as unique and different.
One of the most powerful things on Earth is your identity and how you use it. “Who you are”is not as important as “who you think you are.” That is why you need to establish your identity as a different and unique individual. Identity is what will help you stay different and fulfilled in a world where everyone is trying to conform in order to fit in.
The price of success can only be paid in the currency of hard labor. If you want to succeed at anything you are doing, you need to roll up your sleeves, bend your back and earn your dignity with sweat. There are no valid shortcuts to success and greatness. The price you pay is what will determine what you will get at the end of the day.
