Have you ever heard the words, “You’re too young!” Have you ever told yourself these words? Did you choose to believe it, or did it anger you and motivate you to prove the words and the idea behind the words wrong?
“Most of history was built by young people. They just got credit when they were older. The only way to truly learn something is by doing it. Yes, listen to guidance, but don’t wait.” – Naval Ravikant
There is no such thing as an, “Overnight Success.” Those who are considered and Overnight Success always have a story of a long and difficult journey, wrought with challenges, failures, hard work, life lessons, loss, pain, and devastation, all along the way, which empowered them through the experiences of life and what they have learned from others, to create who and what they have become.
Mindset matters. It is everything. It will guide you and lead you into your future life. We become what we think about the most.
Character counts. It comes from our mindset, and our ever-changing and improving personal belief systems.
You are in charge of your own mindset. You are in charge of the content you allow into your mind all day, every day. What are you choosing to focus on?
When we were younger and smaller and weaker, it was our parents’ responsibility to do everything for us. They taught us how to think, how to speak, what to say, what to do, how to behave, and who to be. What if they were wrong about some things? What if some of the beliefs they instilled in us with good intentions are no longer beneficial to us? What if we misunderstood what belief they were trying to instill within us? What if there are other, better, more effective ways for you to think?
Most parents truly have our best interest at heart, and as parents we all do the best we possibly can, but what if there is a better, more effective way for you to think, speak, do things, behave, and become? What if, by making a few small changes, chasing a few small dreams, and creating your own reality, you can have a more beautiful, fulfilling, amazing, and incredible life?!
When he asked his grandpa for the one secret to success, his grandpa’s answer was epoch. It is contained within the interview, above.
This takes time, patience, consistency, experience, and an understanding of exactly what we want. If we don’t know exactly what we want we will never know what the most effective way is to get it. We will have no plan. If we fail to plan, we plan to fail. We must each have our own, personal strategies for our own, personal success.
There comes a time in all of our lives when we must have the courage to decide what kind of person we want to become. We must decide for ourselves exactly what we want. What lifestyle do I want to live in 10 years? What car do I want to be driving? What clothes do I want to be wearing? What kind of person do I want to be? What characteristics will I have? What beliefs do I want to have that will define who I am? How much money do I want to make? What house do I want to live in? We must first have a vision. Then, and only then, will we know exactly what to do, daily and consistently, in order to some day obtain that which we want.
It is nobody’s responsibility to make any of these things happen for you. It’s all you! You get to decide exactly what you want and then decide the path you want to take to get there. You decide how much work you want to put in every day towards accomplishing your goals. It’s your decision when and how to become responsible. It’s your decision when to stop using your parents for your comfortable lifestyle and create one of your own. It’s your decision when and how you want to change and grow and become the incredible, successful, amazing person that you are meant to become. It’s up to you to make your life successful, fulfilling, beautiful, and happy. It’s up to you to choose when to go out and do things, make mistakes, learn the lessons you need to learn, and become the incredible you that is your destiny.
We create our own reality. We program our own minds. We choose to accept or deny each thought, word, action, and truth that is presented to us. We become who we make ourselves to become. It all starts with our mindset, our attitudes of mind, and our own personal philosophy.
What do you want?
Come on a lifelong journey with me do decide what that is for yourself, and come up with an individual plan that is best for you.
I believe in miracles. Not the ones where angels appear and tell us what we need to do, or the ones where the supernatural saves us from imminent peril.
I believe in the miracle of connection. I believe miracles are worked every day, in all of our lives, through other people.
