“If there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm.” – African Proverb
Most people take their greatness, their ideas to the graveyard with them. The wealthiest place in the planet is the graveyard. Because in the graveyard we will find inventions that we never ever were exposed to; ideas, dreams that never became a reality. Hopes and aspirations that were never acted upon.
Champions keep going when they don’t have anything left in their tank. That’s the difference between the greats. That’s what separates them. When they don’t have no more. When it’s over. When they’re tired. When they’re frustrated. When they’re ready to give up. When they spent their last dime. That’s when they get started. It’s when you have nothing left. It’s when you depleted all your money. When all your energy’s gone. When you have nothing left. That’s when its show time. When you find a way out of no way. When you find breath that you don’t have. When you find energy that did not exist. When you want this thing as bad as you want to breathe.
“An idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules.” – Leonardo DiCaprio (from the movie Inception)
“Look, whatever you’re doing. Stop what you’re doing. I’ve got a question for you. ‘What do you want?’ It’s real simple. ‘What do you want?’ Because there’s some things in life you’re not going to get. Their not coming to you. You got to go take it. There’s some stuff that you can’t even just earn by doing the good thing. It’s not going to happen with you in the bed dreaming about it. It’s not going to happen with you in the shower thinking about it. Sometimes you just got to will it! You can stay where you are, you can. But you can’t stay where you are and try to go where you’re going. So what sacrifices this year are you willing to make?” – Eric Thomas
How comfortable can you be with being uncomfortable?
When you travel down success you’ve got to go through the road of pain. If it was easy everybody would do it. If you think you’re just going to get that business started without trials or tribulations, forget about it. You think it’s going to be easy? Forget about it! Don’t even try to be successful, it’s a wrap. It’s not going to be easy!
I want you to feel that pain going through your body and as pain leaves your body, guess whats going to take its place? Success! And so you’ve got to change your mindset. We’ve got to stop looking at pain as if its something negative.
Listen to me, if it was easy everybody would do it. No pain, no gain! But I guarantee you if you can outlast that pain, if you can get through that discomfort; I guarantee you on the other side of it is success! If you’re going to be in pain get something out of it.
Change how your mindset. Change how you see pain. I want you to welcome it. How comfortable can you be with being uncomfortable?
