This video talks about the people who weigh you down in life and the people who push you forward. Our success is so closely related to the people we surround ourselves with. We have to cut the anchors loose and find more propellers.
When we don’t feel like doing something we need to saddle up and do it anyway because success is on the other side. The people who develop discipline, commitment, perseverance, and grit will succeed because they use those character traits to close the gap between the people who don’t feel like it and the people who do it.
This video goes into why you don’t actually want what you say you want and covers incongruence in your thoughts, feelings, and actions.
The start of my and hopefully your 21-day challenge. It takes 21 days to form a new habit. Let’s start building positive ones.
One will never reach any significant amount of fulfillment without a significant investment of time and energy.
Fulfill- bring to completion or reality; achieve or realize (something desired, promised, or predicted.)
We are nickel and diming our lives away through tiny donations of our time and energy, never truly satisfied, never truly fulfilled.
As I sit here in this Starbucks, with a shitty layout and not enough table space, I wonder, how can I provide value to people? How can I take my gnarly life experience and offer solutions to individuals who have faced similar struggles or who are currently facing similar struggles in their own lives? Struggles like inadequacy, the feeling like you don’t have your shit together, or of uncertainty, and the confusion of not knowing what the hell you want out of life. And then there are the struggles with overcoming the fear and discomfort involved in making the necessary changes that will allow you to reach the desired outcomes. And then and then and then.
