experience more environmental physical and mental abundant someone who is in a constant state of elevation their self-talk is i know who i am i know where i’m going and i know where i came from i want to continue the conversation of self-awareness you know there are a few quotes that i love i want to share with you as it pertains to the conversation of self-awareness and the quote is there is definitely a direct connection between finding your passion and reaching your potential you will never fulfill your destiny doing work you despise passion gives you an advantage over others because one person with passion is greater than 99 who have only an interest passion gives you energy are you aware of what you are doing with your day-to-day time your grind do you like your current relationships do you like your circle of influence do you like your wardrobe i think a lot of us we are programmed to hold on to things that we no longer like the time is now to step into a place of diligence hustle humility and hunger the future belongs to the hungry the hunger the hustler these are those that would take the throne there was a new breed of mamba mentality game changers that in every room that they step in they are agents of transformation they are 30 000 feet above the noise they are architects pioneers innovators students athletes lawyers doctors i’m sounding the alarm that a new mentality will emerge inside of you elevated people know who they are uh they know what they believe the role in life they are presently feeling their great personal potential [Music] when you are self-aware you need to be extremely cognizant of your evolution and the fact that you’re going to change the fact that you’re not going to be the same person you are it’s a very dangerous thing to be in a place where you are growing but your life is not you’re still connected to people and places that you’ve outgrown it’s a very dangerous thing to be in a place like that because you end up dwarfing everybody and everything in your life do you like what you’re doing and do you like where you’re going let me ask you another question what would you like to do if you don’t like what you’re doing and you don’t like where you are and you don’t like your relationships and you don’t like x y or z what do you want what do you like and then you got to be able to add passion to it to activate that thing and make that dream a reality are you fully aware of the bridges that are required to cross over to make your dream a reality i think a lot of people they have this vision in their head this dream but they don’t know how to make it a reality we navigate through life and we keep missing the bridges to bridge the gap between dream and reality so do you know what is required of you are you aware of what is required of you to make happen what you see only in your head i want to give you another quote almost every man wastes part of his life in attempts to display qualities which he does not possess i want you to ask yourself the question are you the person that is projecting a different you to the world on social media on your websites in your meetings are you projecting a different you are you the same person in private and i know that there are multiple versions of yourself or even i have multiple versions of me but are they consistent i want to ask you the question are you aware of your why are you aware of your why so now that you’ve discovered okay i’m not doing what i want to do and i need to learn how to do what i want to do and i need to figure out the bridge to bridge the gap between the dream and the reality do you know why you want to do what you actually want to do what is your why because if the why is great enough if you’re aware of that why then you can begin to back that wire with work ethic [Applause] every why’s got to be backed up by work you want to be committed you want to be consistent you want to be creative you want to be purposeful you want to be reflective and you want to be grateful these are just a few things that you want to be as you are moving forward in your self-awareness you’ve identified your weaknesses you’ve identified that there is a there is a gap between who you are what you want and where you want to be it’s a massive gap awareness and the acceptance of that awareness is the bridge to the future this is going to connect you to your destiny tribe your destiny tribe comes with multiple types of people [Music] what would you like to do what do you believe you’ve been destined to do what talents skills giftings and abilities do you possess to support your desire to do it what are your motives for wanting to do it why do you want to become what you are looking to become what steps are you taking to become and to live the life to make the dream a reality when you have awareness and you have your actions but you have no accountability you set yourself up for a great fall let me ask you a question what price are you willing to pay to make the dream a reality how aware are you are you aware of the price that you are willing to pay relationally emotionally physically mentally spiritually there is a price to pay to manifest a dream you know two of the greatest moments in an individual’s life is the day they were born and the day that they realized why they were born are you aware of your why why are you here what are you doing who are you connected to what are your people your places and your purpose sometimes you got to take a break from just about everything disappear come back and shock the world i’m talking to that athlete i’m talking to that administrator i’m talking to that nurse that doctor i’m talking to that student i’m talking to that communicator i’m talking to that pioneer that inventor i’m talking to that entrepreneur i’m talking to that preacher i’m talking to that person who refuses to stay where they are i’m talking to that person that doesn’t have a problem laying in obscurity because you know that when you come out of the dark room all eyes on you [Applause] we live in a culture of busyness distraction and noise and sometimes the only way something’s going to change is if we disappear [Music] sometimes you got to delete the app sometimes you have to walk away sometimes you have to fall back into the dark room [Applause] and focus on you everybody wants destiny everybody wants manifestation everybody wants fulfillment everybody wants the next level and the relationship and a higher quality of living but nobody wants to eliminate distractions nobody wants to disappear for three months four months six months and get into a place where you can focus on just you what if you could just shut out every distraction what if you could just shut out the world for just a season and focus on you a man is rewarded in public for what he does in private can you unplug for just a moment and focus on you focus on what matters why are you here what is your destiny the reason why you don’t see it the reason why it has not manifested the reason why you are so frustrated is because you have not been willing to forsake all that you’ve been called to forsake and to follow through behind closed doors sure you can talk about it sure you can plan it sure you can write it down sure you can go to the conference and hear about it you can read about it but at some juncture you have to disappear and put the work in and come back and shock everybody that doubted you i’m talking to that man that woman that boy that girl who feels the fire in their belly it’s time for you to shock the world you may have to sleep in your car you may have to go without food you may have to bounce around from couch to couch you may have to sacrifice like nobody in your family ever has but can you do it behind the scenes when nobody’s looking when nobody’s watching when nobody understands the measure of passion that you carry can you keep going don’t stop you’re right there go through the process in the dark room that prepares us and equips us for the stages of destiny it’s time to get real it’s time to get raw it’s time to look ourselves in the mirror and come to the resolve that this version of ourself is not going to carry us in the stretch that i’ve been this version of myself long enough that if i don’t change if i don’t do something about this then i’m gonna find myself bankrupt some of the most monumental and transformational portraits and pictures that we’ve ever seen were developed in the dark room we celebrate athletes and we celebrate critical thinkers and innovators and actors and we praise them and coin them our heroes and we follow them by the millions we love what they do in public but you don’t know the story behind the glory you don’t know the blood the sweat you didn’t see the tears that they cry the prayers that they prayed the countless weeks where they went without sleep to get where they are [Music] one of the greatest tragedies in life is to live and not know why you’re living i’m just wondering if there’s anybody here that wants their future that wants to fulfill their destiny that wants to manifest that wants to walk in discipline and determination i’m just wondering is there anybody here that’s willing to disappear are you willing to forsake all distractions can you hide yourself in the library can you hide yourself in the gym can you hide yourself in the boardroom and plan and caucus and do what’s required behind the scenes in order to manifest the moment can you hide yourself in your books can you hide yourself in your closet can you hide yourself in the prayer rooms can you hide yourself we have this passion to be in the public eye but no patience to do the work behind the scenes stop telling the world what you are about to do [Music] steve jobs once said we do not say anything about future products we work on them in secret and then we release them to the world [Music] we only have so much real estate in our minds in our hearts we only have so much bandwidth in our mental capacity and the more distractions the more delusions the more negativity that we allow to take up real estate in our hearts and in our minds the less energy we have to fulfill the call to fulfill destiny to manifest the idea everything that you think about that you meditate on everything that has to your attention has to be worth your time so now it’s time to navigate and do an appraisal of everything that’s in our life everything and everybody in our life time to do an appraisal and ask them this question are you worth my time if you’re not it’s time to unplug time to unplug time to unplug i’m just wondering if there’s anybody that can hear my voice right now that has come to the end of themselves and they are willing to eliminate distractions they are willing to delete social media apps if they have to they are willing to walk away from everything that is distracted everything that has diluted your devotion and your determination every disease and dysfunction and disorder that has pulled you from destiny after you have heard it after you have received it after you have written it down after you have spoken at once do what is required to manifest it into reality if you can see it in your head you can hold it in your hand stop telling everybody what you’re going to do stop telling everybody what your next move is and just disappear and do the work that is required don’t be bitter don’t be frustrated listen just remain faithful behind the scenes promotion is coming stages and opportunities are being prepared right now as you sacrifice in secret as you put the work in in the dark room as you do what is required to hold in your hand what you see in your head [Music] but no one is there to affirm you when nobody’s there to validate you but nobody is there to agree with you [Music] you build in the dark and you announce it when it’s finished [Music] you’ve been an underdog in your relationships if you’ve been an underdog in the weight room if you’ve been an underdog in life if you’ve been an underdog financially i’m talking to that person who grew up without a father i’m talking to that person who grew up without a mother i’m talking to that person who didn’t grow up with handouts i’m talking to that person who maybe if you did grew up with a little bit of handouts but maybe you were misunderstood and you were overlooked and you were undervalued and you were mishandled and misguided you got a dream to buy a house you got to dream a better relationship you got a dream to win a fight you got a dream to get your family out of the hood you got a dream to lose weight i mean whatever that dream is whatever you have that goal that improbable feat once you get it set once you smell that once you get a feel for it taste of it and the underdog is an individual who who refuses to live in the dark they refuse to remain in obscurity they refuse to live in stress and overwhelm and anxiety there’s somebody who is tired like when you come to the end of yourself you got to get tired like you have to get tired tired something inside of you has to snap you got to get tired of being broke when you get tired of being coined the loser being coined not enough being overlooked and undervalued and underpaid you got to get tired of that when you get tired that’s when you win the underdog is a person that comes out on the playing field and says okay i’ve been in this place of pain my whole life i’ve gone without for so long this is the day you make up in your mind where i will take the throne i’m talking to that person that is acquainted with pain i’m talking to the person that knows what it’s like to come from nothing and so you literally have nothing to lose and the only thing that’s in your hand is a dream the only thing that’s in your head is i have what it takes to get to the top of that hill because i am not the wolf on the hill i am the wolf climbing the hill i have nothing to lose counted out overlooked undervalued misguided betrayed somebody who has been really dishonored disrespected somebody who has lost everything who people stop believing in is a very desperate person they’re climbing a hill they’re trying to achieve a dream and when you are desperate you are very dangerous and a dangerous man or woman is somebody who is a disrupter they don’t play by the rules they are coming for blood [Music] [Applause] [Music] they are coming for blood [Music] your story is not your fortress your story is your fuel when you doubt the underdog is like music to his ears tell me i’m not good enough tell me i’m not strong enough tell me i won’t finish there is this intrinsic emotion this instinct you have just awakened the lion in me because they said you can’t do it they say you don’t have what it takes to make the investments they said you don’t have what it takes to lose the weight they say you don’t have what it takes to hang onto your marriage everybody has been counted out everybody has been doubted the underdog is not a person who doesn’t feel pain doubt and fear the underdog is the person that turns that pain that doubt that fear into their fuel if you came from a place where you had nothing that’s everything that you need [Music] everybody wants a piece of the pie okay everybody wants a piece of the pie in any facet of life in every arena you walk in there’s pie and the the thing is is that that pie doesn’t get any bigger the pie never gets any bigger it’s the disciplined desperate dangerous mentality of an individual that says i’ma push whoever i gotta push out of my way to get my piece of the pie those are the people that get the pie because the pie doesn’t get any bigger and the pie does not pursue you you have to go after it so whatever it is that you’re going after whatever it is you feel as though you’ve been destined to do are you willing to push whoever whatever out of your way to get your piece of the pie and so if you’re listening to me right now there’s anything in your life that is defeating you if there’s anything in your life it seems like an improbable feat you got to smell blood once you get that scent like a hound dog you get that scent you see what is possible you see what you are capable of in the face of adversity in the face of challenges in the face of everybody that says you are not enough you’re not tall enough you’re not big enough you’re not wide enough you’re not fast enough it’s in that very moment that the dreams got to get bigger than the disappointment then the fear then the anxiety then the strength and the overwhelm it’s got to get bigger the dream once that dream gets bigger and you get a cent for that dream you start to smell that dream there’s nothing on planet earth that can stop you you become armed and dangerous you are the most dangerous individual on planet earth and so an underdog is just somebody who refused to live in the setback it is a person who rebels against your reality your reality of me is that i’m not enough your reality of me is that i’m not qualified your reality of me is that i’m not quick enough i’m not fast enough i’m not tall enough i’m not linear enough this is your reality my reality of me is that all i have is all i need i’m coming after everything you said i couldn’t have if you’re gonna come back from the setback the number one thing you have to do is make up your mind that you are no longer going to live in the pain of the past pain is inevitable and it is unavoidable and when we talk about this undergo mentality the underdog is just a man or a woman who has made up their mind they are no longer going to live in their setbacks they are no longer going to live in your reality your reality of me says i’m not enough your reality of me says i can’t do this your reality of me says you won’t finish today my reality says all i have is all i need i’m not living in my setback any longer i’m moving forward when we talk about a dog mentality the dog scrambles the dog walks the dog runs after whatever he wants when a dog is hungry no out of his way this is coming for blood and the reason why you don’t have what you want is because you are hungry enough you are gonna have to push push push push push nine times out of ten the underdog always comes out with the wind because the underdog was more hungry the wolf that is on the hill is never as hungry as the wolf that is climbing the hill the underdog is still trying to prove himself the other dog is still trying to tell the world i can do this [Music] and the underdog is is an individual who refuses to live in the dark people tell me all the time it’s hard to get wealthy it’s hard to grind it’s hard to be focused how do you even do these speeches it’s hard to stay motivated it’s hard to stay broke it’s hard to stay depressed it’s hard to stay governed by anxiety it’s hard to be inconsistent it’s hard not to have daily disciplines it’s hard not to believe in yourself it’s hard to be broke it’s hard to be poor it’s hard it’s all hard so choose your heart you either go work for it you’re gonna sit there and let life knock you down and dare you to get back up it’s hard to practice perseverance it’s hard to practice compassion and forgiveness it’s hard to set personal goals it’s hard to take care of yourself it’s hard to be broke it’s hard to live in bitterness and unforgiveness it’s difficult to be jealous of somebody it’s hard to let yourself go it can be difficult to lay your life down and humble yourself and rid yourself of the disease of ego pride and comparison and competition it’s it’s difficult it’s hard to be creative it’s hard to be an introvert it’s hard to be an extrovert singleness can be difficult marriage can be difficult raising your children on your own can be difficult it’s hard to wake up early it’s hard to wake up late but there’s a reward on the other side of waking up early if you wake up late you’ve lost too much daylight what somebody else did before you woke up now you only have a fraction of the day to get it done there’s a reward on the other side of one pain and there is regret on the other side of the other pain and if you’re going to win the reward you’re going to have to persevere you’re going to need endurance you’re going to need to be consistent and on the other end of the pendulum there is the pain of regret where you did nothing because you were afraid you would make a mistake the pain of regret will hurt you so choose your heart make a decision i want the pain of finishing something i want the pain of persevering give me the pain of forgiving my haters give me the pain of forgiving people that tried to kill me give me the pain of letting it go give me the pain of growth give me the pain of acquiring new skill sets and talents give me the pain of managing my time well give me the pain of waking up early give me the pain of praying when i didn’t feel like it forgiving when i didn’t feel like it letting go give me the pain i’ll take that pain because on the other side of that pain there is a reward every single day of my life i’ll take reward over regrets will you keep sleeping on your potential or when you wake up and make it happen choose your pain today the anguish the irritation the frustration that you feel today will be your strength to leave walls tomorrow to leap hurdles tomorrow to champion the day tomorrow so you got to turn your pain and the progress you got to learn how to turn your pain into power consider this your wake-up call what most people fail to realize is that pain is inevitable and it is unavoidable there is no path in life without pain whatever it is that you’re going after whoever it is that you’ve been destined to become you cannot have it you will not become it without pain you will face challenges and difficulties and giants regardless if you are single if you are married if you are a stay-at-home mom a stay-at-home father if you are an entrepreneur if you’re working a nine to five if you’re an educator if you are an athlete if you are a musician a singer a producer it doesn’t matter who you are what you are doing pain is inevitable if i’m gonna hurt like this if i’m gonna bleed like this if i’m gonna cry like this let me cry because i’m in the best shape of my life let me cry because i’m conditioned to weather the uphill war let me cry because i’m building my relationship i’m building my business i’m building my legacy let me cry because it hurt but there is a reward on the other end of my pain let me cry tears because i passed the test because i gave it everything i had choose your heart everything in life comes with hardship make a decision at some juncture you will encounter pain in the moment that you get acquainted with pain you get acquainted with hardship you realize that no matter what you do no matter how much you study no matter how much you plan you will not be able to avoid a measure of pain i don’t care what it is losing weight i don’t care what it is a new eating paradigm a new relationship paradigm new thoughts new behaviors it doesn’t matter what you’re after what you’re looking to become if you don’t go to the gym it’s gonna hurt you if you go to the gym it’s gonna hurt you your muscles are gonna tear but on the other side of that pain there is a reward there isn’t any regrets you won’t regret taking care of your body on the other side of making those healthy decisions there is a reward it’s the reward of discipline it’s the reward of longevity it’s the reward of influence it’s the reward of power do you want results do you want a reward or do you want regrets the decision is yours it’s all hard so choose your heart pain is inevitable and it is unavoidable pick your pain [Music] everybody’s got a plan until life knocks them out because we weren’t ready for the pain and when the pain came we did not process it processing pain is a skill set you’ve got to acquire it’s a type of currency if you want the future if you want next level if you want tomorrow if you want to manifest if you want this thing i don’t care what it is then you’re going to have to get acquainted with pain the pain of discipline the pain of growth the pain of learning the pain of giving the pain of forgiving it all hurts so pick your pain choose your heart because at some juncture in life at some corner you’re going to turn you are going to encounter pain and you’ve got to process that pain well hear me when i say it pain is unavoidable it’s hard to let go of the past it’s hard to give sometimes of your time your talent and your treasure it’s hard to balance work life it’s hard to acquire new skills it’s hard to be stagnant it’s hard to be a workhorse it’s hard to be lazy it’s hard to learn how to manage and cultivate relationships it’s hard to learn from your experiences it’s hard to turn your mess into your message it’s all hard it’s hard to hold on it’s hard to let go but there’s a reward on the other end of many of these hardships you better choose reward or regret there is always reward and regret attached to every decision that you make hope hold on pain ends pain does have an expiration date and when that pain ends another one will surface but you will be strong enough because you endured the current pain well everybody wants resurrection but nobody wants the pain of dying to themselves there’s a pain that hurts you and there’s a pain that changes you [Music] so today all i want you to do is make a decision to choose your heart [Music] some of you don’t even realize you have unfinished business you need to go back where you left off with a new perspective go back to the gym go back to the drawing board go back to the business go back to the relationship go back to the burning building you have unfinished business all you got to do and show up with a new game plan and a new perspective you got to finish business you have odd fitness business you got work to do perspective is everything let’s go i need you to hear me loud and clear how you see this thing is everything you cannot change the past but you can’t change your perspective about it you gotta see this thing differently stop complaining about the divorce stop complaining about the job loss stop complaining about the relocation your viewpoint is your advantage thank you for breaking up with me here’s what you did you opened up another opportunity for somebody else to come into my life thank you for firing me you gave me an opportunity to explore entrepreneurship i’m not bitter i’m better perspective is what changes the game [Music] everybody wants increasing and abundance and lifestyle change and new zip codes and new area codes but you only read once a week and you only work out once or twice a month and so the reason why you don’t have what it is that you see the reason why what’s in your head is not in your hands it’s not your reality it’s because your perspective opposes your potential you don’t have it because you don’t see the value in it if you believe you’ve been gone to be the difference maker the game changer the disrupter the person that comes into a room and commands the atmosphere if you believe you’ve been called to be necessary and not grossly irrelevant then everything you do everything you see everything rises and falls on your perspective your perception your viewpoint how do you see this thing what happens when your perspective your perception diametrically opposes your reality if you are going to give and grow and evolve and attain and become everything rises and falls on your viewpoint show me somebody that hates to work out and i’ll show you a man that almost lost his life and the doctor said if you don’t work out you’ll die one sees it as cumbersome one season as a problem another one sees it as a privilege he sees it as his second chance his new lease on life that i have to work out i get to work out i get a chance to live a little longer so one person sees the gym as a prison and another person sees the gym as a passport one man came within inches of losing his life and another man has never come within a hundred miles of losing his life and he only works out twice a month and somebody else works out four or five times a week the reason why you only do it once or twice a month is because you don’t see the value your viewpoint is either your advantage or your assassin your viewpoint will either get you going or get you killed [Music] we see a storm we see rain and we think depression we think i can’t do anything instead of thinking grass can’t grow without rain roses don’t bloom without rain number one there’s one thing i need you to stop saying and that is i should do something that perspective that viewpoint that ideology that philosophy that mindset is gonna get you bankrupt i should start this i should stop that i should forgive i should you don’t get what you should you get what you must have i must work out x amount of times a week i must forgive i must evolve i must become i must retain i must grow i must live i must evolve i must go to the next level i must live in this type of house i must drive this type of car i don’t care how bad you think the shoes are that you are wearing there is another man in this world who will kill to walk a mile in the pair that you wear marcus what does this mean this means that what you are complaining about what you hate what you can’t stand what you want to walk out of what you want to give up on there is somebody out there that would die to be in your position and so here’s what i need you to ask yourself is this problem an issue or is it an opportunity some of you all you’ve been waiting for your whole life was an opportunity what if losing your job what’s the opportunity what if the divorce is an opportunity what if the bankruptcy is an opportunity what if the one you loved was an opportunity for you to reconnect with somebody and forgive them i need you to see the bigger picture i need you to have a little gratitude you need to learn how to smile you need to work out i know you hate the gym i know you hate to lift weights i know you hate cardio i know you don’t like drinking water i know you don’t like taking care of your temple you think it’s the hardest thing to do in the world to commit but there is somebody who’s in the grave today and if they had another opportunity to live they would enthusiastically with great confidence and courage and consistency do what you hate just to live a little longer find the positive see the bigger picture guard your gratitude the trial the tribulation the adversity the giants is not your assassin the giant is your opportunity are you gonna complain in the face of conflict or are you gonna seize the opportunity i don’t care what it is that you’re trying to achieve what you’re trying to accomplish what you’re trying to give how you’re trying to evolve what you are looking to become everything rises and falls on your perspective stop complaining about the jealousy and the envy and the backbiting and the person that gave up on you and the person that wasn’t present and the person that lied to you and the person that attempted to manipulate and control i’m not weary i’m wiser i’m not toxic i’m triumphant i see this thing differently this season that you’ve entered into did not come to break you it came to build you and to the man or woman god has destined you to be change your perspective there’s a reason why they say see the light at the end of the tunnel if you don’t see that light you’re gonna lose your mind you will lose yourself you will snap in half if you don’t see past this the challenge for many of us is that we got to see past our present pain and in to the fruitfulness of the future the right perspective makes the impossible possible you cannot change the past but you can always change your perspective no problem could be solved from the same level of consciousness that created the severity of your problems is a matter of perspective change your perspective and most of them become insignificant some of them will no longer exist as problems but opportunities the right perspective is the instrument you need the tool you need it’s a discipline it’s an advantage if you change the way you look at things then the things that you see will change knowledge a speech a motivational moment will not sustain you unless you put it into perspective how will you see the rest of your day because how you see the rest of your day will oftentimes determine the way you see the rest of your life shift your perspective if you can change your perspective you can change the future many of you listening to me right now you have unfinished business and you need to go back to that dream back to that idea you have a date with destiny you have unfinished business it’s time for you to go back to the drawing board with a new perspective it’s your viewpoint and watch this your perspective actually shapes your language and your language shapes your world and so if you don’t start thinking right you’re not going to talk right and if you’re not talking right you’re not going to experience the world that you see in your head i don’t know who god has called you to become but what i can tell you is if you keep seeing it the way you have seen it you will never become it everybody wants next level everybody wants wealth and influence and everybody wants to be this esoteric novelty but listen to me you will never experience any of this showing up in your next season with the same viewpoint the right perspective makes the impossible possible i know you’re tired i know you’re broken and it feels like you can’t take anymore when you have come to the end of yourself [Music] but all of this means one thing [Music] and you are a survivor your greatest weakness the hurt the pain the betrayal the feeling that you get when you wake up and you are inundated with so much responsibility feels like you can’t breathe paralyzed by the pain of life that can only imagine what it’s been like to be you but i’ll tell you this there is a switch inside of every one of us and at any moment in life you could turn that switch from surviving to winning because ultimately survival is an illusion there’s only two types of people in this world there’s people who lose and there’s people who win and it’s hard to be a loser it’s hard to be a winner today i want to make a decision to flip this switch inside of you from surviving to winning it’s time to win see the human being is the highest order of creation on earth and one thing i am crystal clear about is that at any moment in your life you can come across a speech or a piece of information and if that information is applied that revelation it can forever alter the fabric of your existence it’s in the midst of our greatest storm if you can hear my voice you’ve survived you survived the hurricane you survived the storm you survived the trial you survived the betrayal you survived it all in order to change your life all you got to do is flip this switch from surviving to winning see a survivor will sit and wallow in the pain of the past but a winner will build even when they are broken i may be weak i may be hurting i may have pains i may have been down but i am not out i am getting out of this hole today i’m getting out of the pit of misery and into my destiny your pain is not bigger than your purpose and even though you have been crushed in this very moment you still have your calling flip the switch from weakness to winning from hurting to conquering from losing to champion i can’t get through this i will get through this i must get through this the days you not plugged in are the days you don’t get 120. [Music] i have too much to accomplish to be satisfied with where i am right now i have too much on the line i have too many people depending on me to win i must stay hungry you want to kill an alligator you kill it right after it eats because right after it eats it gets satisfied and it goes to a state like it’s almost paralyzed some of y’all in this room were you paralyzed you had a little success you’ve done what nobody else in your family has done and now you chilling come on you ain’t hungry no more next hunting i need you to stay focused why you should still be hungry what have you eaten that’s got you satisfied what have you done what have you accomplished that got you so full i’m a contender but the next hundred gonna change my life you’re gonna change this world we’re ordinary people doing extraordinary things if that’s you and you’re feeling me just say i can come on come on i can i am i can come one more time yep i will i must all right you study any animal in the animal kingdom and i will tell you this that the lion is king because the lion is hungry the elephant is bigger than the lion but the sheet is faster than the lion but nobody is more hungry than the lion goes any athlete actor musician philanthropist it doesn’t matter you ask anybody who is a champion and the difference between them and their opponent is they were more hungry for it if there’s anything i can pour from my heart in this moment my greatest piece of advice is to protect your hunger all right come on come on put some context into i’m gonna put some context they sent my mother-in-law home eight years ago uh the cancer metastasized throughout our whole body they’re like it ain’t nothing we could do for you go home spend time with your family and people was like yep that’s it first she said it’s not it for me and they said what you mean is not over for you the doctor said she don’t care about a doctor i got to see my grandson graduate from high school he’s a junior now michigan state university she said i got to see my granddaughter graduated my only two grandkids i see my granddaughter graduate from high school and she graduates in june she said after that i might die but up until then i ain’t going nowhere are you hearing what i’m telling you and what we said to each other is i can’t get through this i will get through this i must get through this so so i just need to think about three people in your family that you love three people three people that you love three people you got em they there you got em that’s what i need you to do for me cause some of you have a hard time staying motivated for a straight hundred days so what i need you to do for me is i need you to think about those people every day when you’re doing what you’re doing do you have some days where you just wanna hit the snooze button raise your hand for me you wanna hit the snooze button right so watch this this is what has to happen that person that you think about has to be louder than the snooze button so when you think about granny you gotta think about do i hit the snooze button or do i get up and make it happen for granted are you hearing what i’m saying who you doing this for so the days you don’t feel like getting up just think about them somebody tell me in this room when you think about your siblings when you think about mom your dad and grandma when you think about your uncle and aunts when you think about those coaches those people who’ve been there for you just raise your hand if you say e.t sleep is better than that just raise your hand and tell me anybody in the room sleep is better than them e raise your hand somebody tell me 18 you don’t you don’t get it you don’t know how hard it is eat i probably don’t i just lived in abandoned buildings hey i trash cans i probably don’t maybe i never been through what you’ve been through but i’ve been through my go through and you don’t you don’t you don’t get here by quitting when you’re tired you get here by quitting when you finish when you’re done you don’t stop when you’re tired you stop when you’re done you stop when you complete it when you execute it execution is worship and so i execute for my mom i execute for my grandma i execute for my sister i execute for those kids in the hood who looking for a role model that’s why i wear the hat with a phd that’s why i wear the james so when the kids in the hood look at me they say if e.t can do it i can do it that’s why i can’t quit and give up even though i get tired just like everybody else why because this is what i do this is my leg this is your leg you gotta murder it so i ask you you got energy don’t play with me when i tell when i say again you got that energy for the next hundred days i need to feel your soul in this room all right i can come on i can come on i can i will i must come on i can i will i must give yourself some energy come on i don’t care if you gotta listen to me a thousand times i need you to get crystal clear about your future because the only reason why you are here the only reason why you’re alive is because you have work to do and you got to figure out why on earth are you here what is your destiny what is the dream that god has given you you got to have like a shark mentality because if a shark swims backward it dies a shark can only move forward and so i need you every single day you wake up to smell blood and go after that dream when you are hungry you are creative when you are hungry you are innovative when you are hungry when you are no longer full when you are no longer satisfied with where you are and you raise your standards it is only then that you can have your future if you can stay hungry you can get the resources if you can stay hungry you can get the strategy if you can stay hungry the idea is gonna come if you can stay hungry the connections will be aligned if you can stay hungry the problem with many of you is that you got fool you got complacent you got lazy somewhere along the line you lost your enthusiasm your optimism he lost your hunger i’m never full i’m never full i’m never full i’m never full you got to get hungry hungry hungry hungry eliminate all distractions eliminate all distractions so you gotta have a goal you gotta have a dream you gotta get hungry and then you gotta get real discipline because motivation will get you going a speech will get you fired up but discipline is going to give you the power to stay committed to whatever that goal is i’m gonna tell you this right now some praise can be poison it keeps you locked in a state of paralysis and you shine in trophies from the past and that’s why you always hear those people from the past like yeah remember back in the day when i used to do this remember back in the day they’re still shining the trophy of the past accomplishments so sometimes we can we can receive praise like a venomous snake that injects its poisonous venom in our veins and in our heart and we get forward we get real full you got to be hungry for your dream you got to be hungry for your next level you got to be hungry for connection and alignment you have to be hungry to fulfill your destiny hunger is not an idea hunger is not a mood hunger is a lifestyle i’m never fool this is me every day all day i’m hungry to learn you got to be hungry to read you have to be hungry to grow you have to be hungry to manifest what is in your head just say i can come on come on i can’t i can’t i can come on one time yep i will yo i must [Music] there is a light inside of every one of us an ember that burns and begs us to become more than what we have ever been this is the flicker of creativity the spark of an idea the outline of a design [Music] you got to make it happen can nobody else do it for you you’re in charge of your it every day the clock is ticking every year the calendar moves your it cannot be delayed forever your it gotta start with your first step your it gotta start with your first move matter of fact it begins in your mind it is your dreams it is your purpose it is your future [Music] there are three types of people in this world there are people who watch things happen there are people who wonder what happened and there are people who make things happen you got to determine which person you are you can make a wish or you can make it happen you must first believe that you can that you will that you must when you are no longer willing to tolerate being in the room of failure then that’s when you’re going to break free are you going to rise and go higher and go stronger than you ever did in your life or you’re gonna look in the mirror and see that image and realize that you are more than an image in the mirror there’s enough fire inside of you after everything you have been through you’ve got to be able to see your value [Music] are you going to realize that it’s time for you to step up and make it happen or you’re going to put aside all your doubts and fears or you’re gonna be strong enough to go forward or you’re gonna allow weakness to tell you that you don’t have what it takes to make it happen there is no one like you in all of the earth there is no one that can do what you can do you are the only option you are the only play nobody else is going to be able to do this when you get that in your head that you are the only one that is going to be able to do this that nobody’s gonna give you a handout that you have to make this happen that every room you walk into you show up and you show out and you leave it all on the table we don’t have time to second guess it’s time for you to rise up and it’s time for you to make that first step it’s time for you to start grinding so that you can make it happen you got to make it happen at the end of the day you got to be strong at the end of the day you got to push forward you you must accept this truth that you were born for such a time as this and that at this very moment all you have is all you need make it happen [Music] persistence consistency resilience courage establishing your priorities mastering self-awareness maintaining focus believing others have failed others have gone others have missed their moment [Music] this is the hope that strokes our passions it’s our aspirations that must become our allies do you really have what it takes when someone tells you that you’re not good enough and you’re not strong enough to prove them wrong and make it happen do you have the faith and the resilience to go through the storm to go through the fire to go through all of the things that have been trying to put you down to make it happen you gotta fight through all of that all of your challenges all your limitations all your haters you gotta fight through all of that and that’s why victory will taste so sweet the moment that you destroy the door the way out in the room of your dream that’s when you make it happen what you do while you are in pain will echo through the ages well you’re gonna realize that you are your greatest creation and what you create relies on you you may get knocked down but so what you may feel like you can’t carry on but so what that doesn’t mean that it’s over for you that doesn’t mean that you can’t go forward that means you got to rise up the process is muddy the process is murky the process is dark the process is cold the process is going to leave you in places where you’re going to feel like you have been abandoned like nobody believes in you nobody supports you when you don’t see a light at the end of your tunnel you gotta remember the life that is burning inside of you that nobody is able to put out there is not a person on this planet that can stop you sometimes you’re gonna just say you just don’t have it anymore you must reconnect with your possibilities that means you got to be hungry that means you’ve got to be strong that means you got to have the power that means you got to fight and push and make it happen [Music] nobody cares until you make it happen what have you worked hard for daily what if you stop listening to the wrong people and start listening to the right people and let their voice be louder people that love you’s voice got to be louder people that care about you their voice got to be louder people that want you to succeed their voice has got to be louder but can’t nobody’s voice be louder than yours you gotta understand what voice to listen to you might be hanging on by thread right now burned out on the verge of dropout but i need you to take a moment and garner up all the belief that you have left in yourself and in the idea of what is possible to make this thing happen [Music] it’s those who are not dating the idea but married to the reality that they are the only option but until you understand that it’s up to you it is up to you to make it happen then nothing will move nothing can happen don’t depend on other people to give you permission you have the power to make it happen so move push make moves and go forward be strong enough be willing enough and make it happen for you [Music] opportunity is everywhere but i need you to grow up and be ready for this opportunity maturity is knocking wisdom is knocking you are stronger now you are wiser now it’s time for you to answer the call with your chest stuck out it’s time for you to answer the call with your head held high will you keep delaying a better life you gonna keep letting everybody pass you by why not you come on why not you no sunrise without a sunset there are no roses without rain if you can remember that then you will always see adversity as advantage and obstacle as opportunity know this that your process may be messy but your mess will become your message you can’t just stay still you can’t just stay neutral you have to continue to evolve but you gotta rise up right now and you gotta understand that you are powerful and you gotta focus on your end you can you will you must never give up the moves that you make will echo throughout the ages as there is a generation of people who are attached to your why and if you don’t succeed they’ll never believe so make it happen i’m talking to that football team i’m talking to that baseball team that basketball team i’m talking to that fighter talking to that track star i’m talking to that athlete i’m talking to that student i’m talking to the person who failed the exam over and over and over again i’m talking to that individual who feels as though all hope is lost who feels as though they gave it their all if you are still alive you’ve got something left you still think failure is final you’re going to learn to change the movie that is playing in your head and the moment that you stop thinking that failure is final and you shift your perspective and you understand that failure is a lesson learned it is at that very moment that you can break out of the prison of fear because this is what happens when we fail when we fall fear creeps in [Music] fear sedates us fear immobilizes us fear tells us that we’re inflexible we’re incapable fear tells us that we’re irresponsible fear tells us that we don’t want it bad enough fear imprisons us i’m getting out of this place you can’t hold me here any longer fear says if you get up now and you try it again you’ll fail again so stay here with me fear is moody and resentful and lazy and self-condemning and your future hinges on these two words if you will listen these two words can be your passport out of the prison of fear if nobody has told you this let me tell you now i know you failed but get up i know it hurts but get up one of the things you are going to have to do is get the image of failure out of your head stop meditating on the mess up and see yourself walking in the mastery of this thing if you want your future get up now get up get up get up get up get up i know you’re bleeding but get up i know it hurt but get up i know you disappointed people that believed in you but get up and try again try again try again right where you are i want you to see it differently and this time you understand where your weaknesses are this time you understand your vulnerabilities i need you to see this thing you got to see this thing failure is not final if you can see failure differently then the whole game changes now the world is your classroom because now you’re seeing failure differently if you’re gonna get up and try this thing again four things you gotta know right now hear me loud and clear snap out of it step out of it snap out of it snap out of it snap out of it stop telling yourself you’re not good enough stop telling yourself you don’t have what it takes snap out of it snap out of it stop telling yourself you will fail if you try again step out of it get up and give it everything you have a lot of us don’t get up and try again because we keep playing the failure over again and again and again and this is why you continue to fail because that’s all you see in the moment that you change the motion picture in your head and you see something different now you know you no longer see the mess you no longer see the madness you no longer see the trauma you see the triumph you see what is possible you see that you have what it takes because you saw where you failed and now you can see okay now now failure positions just to be instructors for the future you become a better thinker and a better problem solver failure spawns creativity motivation and tenacity show me somebody who has achieved greatness and if you pull up their past i promise you you’ll see some failures and some lessons learned but what happened failure became their instructor all of these lessons eventually build a level of confidence and self-esteem that you would have never had had you not failed failure teaches us how to value and cherish wisdom and understanding failure teaches us how to reprioritize failure creates opportunity to come back i don’t want you to see failure as a disease i want you to see it as a currency i want you to know that there are lessons that you learn and you gain wisdom in the lesson you gain a deeper understanding of the power of your future there are things you will be able to buy in your future with the currency of failure with the lesson that you learn we look in this mirror we see what’s possible we see possibility and oftentimes we date possibility we date destiny we don’t marry destiny we date destiny we think the idea the theory of success what i could be what’s possible we compensate about things we want to accomplish but then we get trapped back in the present of fear fear of failure a lot of you you have fear of greatness you are afraid of promotion you are afraid of elevation you are afraid to hit the stage you are afraid of opportunity because you’re thinking to yourself if i get on this stage if i get on this field if i get on this court if i get on this track if i get in this room and you give me an opportunity and i drop the ball i won’t be able to ever live it down but listen to me it is a lesson learned and it is a lesson that you would have never learned had you not given it a try give yourself a chance to win yourself a chance to win be the person that said i tried i tried i gave it all i had i tried and now i can re-evaluate and now i can deliberately investigate my emotional and mental state and i can i can figure out what’s wrong with me what happened why did i miss the ball why did i miss the punch why didn’t i see this thing the way i could have what can i do better if we can change our perspective on failure our lives will never get the same you’re going to learn to change the movie that is playing in your head a lot of us don’t get up and try again because we keep playing the failure over again and again and again and this is why you continue to fail because that’s all you see the moment that you change the motion picture in your head and you see something different now you know you no longer see the mess you no longer see the madness you no longer see the trauma you see the triumph you see what is possible you see that you have what it takes because you saw where you failed and now you can see okay now now failure position just to be instructors for the future and see when we get into the prison of fear because we have fallen in an area fear has friends one of the chief friends of fear is doubt and doubt here is more dreams than failure ever will there are people who have failed in their head before they even reach the field so i want to invite you to renounce the spirit of fear failure is the only opportunity to begin again and if i’m talking to anybody that’s hungry for the future all you need is an opportunity to try again failing doesn’t make you a failure it’s something you did is not who you are [Music] in this life it will always be obstacles there will always be challenges it will always be giants what has defeated you what is your giant name it is fear is it anxiety [Music] is it insecurity is it doubt perhaps your giant or your improbable feet is a better relationship weight loss what has been your obstacle your challenge [Music] your task what is your giant this is the last day you are going to allow this giant to defy you i know it hasn’t been easy it’s time to win [Music] there will be many times in your life there will be depression there will be anxiety there will be oppression there will be stress there will be overwhelm will you buckle under the pressure or will you rise to the occasion the bible says that david got up and ran into the army of the philistines he ran towards the battle and like an eagle is the only bird that flies into the storm it is time for you to fly into the next dimension of where you have been called to what is your dream what is your idea what is your assignment there is a new breed of champions emerging out of the ashes of doubt in fear your knees may be knocking your palms sweaty but the time is now to rise up and run after it run after your dream run after your idea right after your goal run after it with everything that you have [Music] you will never have your future until you are fully persuaded that you are a carrier of everything required to fulfill your destiny if nobody believes in you you gotta make it up in your mind that all you have is all you need you are gonna need vision before you win you’re going to have to see it i want you to see yourself winning if you can see it you can have it in this life there will always be a man a woman a boy a girl or a team who will face impossible odds and somehow through some combination of courage will grit and a mustard seed of faith they’ll manage to overcome what i love about david is that david was not only one of the youngest the smallest the least likely not only was david underrated but his weapon of choice was underrated and there will be times in life where people will not believe in you neither what you are carrying i’ma tell you the one thing that separated david from goliath and that was his heart for god and god’s people if you are going to defeat your giant you are going to need heart you must overcome what lies between the pit of your fears and the summit of your knowledge our goliaths our challenges our giants oftentimes meet us in our valley places it’s not on the mountaintop that david fought goliath but it’s in the valley i tell you this the tangible giants in our life are defeated by means that are intangible the man can conquer his mindset if a man can master discipline then there is nothing he can’t win they will tell you that your dream is too big they will tell you that your destiny cannot be fulfilled they will tell you it is impossible to accomplish what you have set out to accomplish but it’s not about what they say it’s about what you say i believe that you are born to triumph over every demon over every devil over every addiction you are fighting for your family you are fighting for your legacy what you are fighting for is bigger than you do not forget this david ran toward the philistine david ran towards the army your dream your idea whatever goal you have get up and run after it [Music] you can defeat this enemy and you can have your future [Music] if you’re going to defeat this giant if you’re going to win the war it starts on the battlefield of your mind this is where the war is won over the course of your life you will discover that the obstacle is the way that there is great in conflict we will discover that we are most creative in the midst of adversity so do not run from your battle for the battle is a learning experience you got to overcome fear the moment that you overcome fear then your opponent is bankrupt there’s nothing they can do you’re going to have to dispense with fear and with negative self-talk remember your why it is the why that gets us to win and it is the why that gives us the power to persevere through the how stop looking for the addition stop looking for the validation stop looking for everybody to agree with what you’re about to do stop looking for everybody to understand and know this all you have is all you need i can see your tired of addiction running towards you with words of darkness death attempting to strike fear in your heart will you cower will you back down or will you run it’s a battle but i see a generation rising up against the one who called you powerless rising up against the fiery darts of the enemy rising up against the lie that have held us down far too long rising up against the despair in the heaviness and the chronic anxiety i have waited my whole life for this moment thank you to everybody that doubted me knees buckling palm sweaty heart heavy but i’m ready i’m afraid but i’m running you will hear my feet walk in the pavement a little more complacent he said everybody that doubted me he said everybody that stopped believing in me here’s to everybody that counted me out [Music] what has been tested what has been proven do something with what’s in your hand do what you can with what you have all you have is all you need [Music] i don’t care what the adversity has been you have two choices you can be unforgiving bitter angry upset and be a carrier of grief or you can choose resilience you can cope with what happened you can upload the program of resilience and recover all and get back to the place where you were before the fall stop waiting for the storm to pass and ask yourself the question what can i accomplish in the rain what can i accomplish in the rain who cannot become in the rain there are people all over the world who are depending on you so our wounds become wisdom we have a new program it’s called resiliency the race is not given to the strong nor the swift but it is given to he that endureth until the end life doesn’t get any easier it doesn’t get more forgiving we just get stronger and we get more resilient [Music] one thing we know is that adversity conflict trauma does not discriminate we are all acquainted with pain i don’t care how many times life knocks you down get back up and tell life i’m supposed to be here i belong here give me what’s mine when we tackle obstacles when we face adversity and conflict it is only then that we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we didn’t even know we had [Music] it’s literally only when we face failure that we realize these resources are always there within us we only need to find them to fulfill our destinies after life has beaten you and broken you into pieces resiliency is that gift and ability it’s the discipline to turn those pieces into a work of art many of you listening to me know what it’s like to lose everything you know what it’s like to hit rock bottom you know what it’s like not to be supported you know what it’s like to be lied on you know what it’s like to experience emotional relational and psychological trauma and it changes you because you don’t know what you are made of until you have gone through something you already know what failure feels like you already know what it feels like to quit to stop to throw in the towel to sit on the couch to move to a substance to put your confidence in some man or some woman to lay idle but do you know what it’s like to give everything that you have and push and persevere if you’re going to understand the program of resiliency we are going to have to stop running from difficult times stop praying that the storm will pass over you and pray to grow through the storm stop going around it go through it what you go through you will grow through some fights are not won in the first round flat out the moment that you get that and you get crystal clear and you accept the fact that there are some giants that you will not defeat in the first round you need endurance you need stamina to reach some goals you’re not going to hit the million with the first investment you’re not going to hit the home run always at first swing but resiliency says i belong here and i deserve another shot i want my opportunity give me my opportunity it’s your reaction to adversity not adversity itself that determines how your life story will develop rock bottom is the solid foundation to build the future and you’ve lost everything you have everything you need resiliency says i tried and i failed resiliency has its own mentality the program of resiliency says i tried and i failed i tried and i failed i tried and i failed i tried and i failed again i’ma start again and i’m not waiting till monday i’m gonna start right now i tried again and again and i succeeded see what a lot of people don’t know is that the movie the matrix is is more of a documentary than it is a movie see anytime neo needed to accomplish something they would just simply upload the program if he needed to know taekwondo if he needed to know karate if he needed to speak a different language he would literally just upload the program to neo’s consciousness well life works the same there is a program we all run programs and it doesn’t matter if you’re at the county fair it doesn’t matter if you’re at the family cookout it doesn’t matter if you’re at home watching a movie in the basement or on vacation with your your wife or your husband we’re all running a program and you have default settings within your subconscious and we have many of us deal with laziness many of us deal with anger many of us deal with frustration and these are different programs that we run and so now you need to deliberately investigate and examine your internal man and ask yourself what are the programs i’m running because for many of us laziness is a program procrastination is a program anger and anguish and bitterness and unforgiveness is a program and if you’re going to hang on to grief and anger and unforgiveness because of the lawsuit or because of the jail time or because of the record that you think somebody messed up or the messy divorce you are going through or the job you lost or the business that tanked i don’t care what the adversity has been you have two choices you can be unforgiving bitter angry upset and be a carrier of grief or you can choose resilience you can cope with what happened you can upload the program of resilience and recover all and get back to the place where you were before the fall get up stop waiting for the storm to pass and ask yourself the question what can i accomplish in the rain what can i accomplish in the rain who can i become in the rain what can i build under these conditions resilience is based on compassion for ourselves as well as compassion for others the future is hinged on your resiliency your family is depending on you to put in the work your friends your circles of influence your mentors there are people all over the world who are depending on you so our wounds become wisdom because our perspective we have a new program it’s called resiliency are you willing to lose sleep are you willing to put the work in are you fully persuaded are you determined i don’t care how many times life knocks you down get back up and tell life i’m supposed to be here i belong here give me what’s mine when we tackle obstacles when we face adversity and conflict it is only then that we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we didn’t even know we had it’s literally only when we face failure that we realize these resources were always there within us we only need to find them to fulfill our destinies after life has beaten you and broken you into pieces resiliency is that gift and ability it’s the discipline to turn those pieces into a work of art [Music] [Music] sounds like you’re having a tough time i’ve been there so i kind of know what you’re talking about i’ve been in the ever cycling vortex of self-doubt anxiety frustration it’s no good trust me i know let me share a few things with you that hopefully will help the pain to subside you know you can read them if you want you can read them again later if you feel like it but honestly man if i spend all this time typing this out to you and you don’t allow it to be a tender to your fire well you’re just letting us both down and you don’t have to do that you don’t have to do anything but you get to choose [Music] i’m gonna give you four rules that if you can obey if you can make these rules a command and i believe not only will the pain subside but perhaps transformation could take place on the inside rule number one there are no more zero days what is a zero day a zero day is when you don’t do a single solitary thing towards whatever your dream or goal is in his life [Music] so i want to make a conscious decision that there will be no more zero days i’m not saying you gotta kill yourself but the point i’m trying to make is that you need to promise yourself that your new program your new system will be a life lived of no more zero days this means that when the day is over and you look up and it’s 11 58 at night you did something no more zero days and i don’t care if it was one push-up one sitter one page of the book you feel me but just make a decision that there will be no more zero days you see when you’re in the vortex of being bummed and you are trapped in the pattern of self-sabotaging behavior you get used to it and the only way you are going to break out is with a massive string of consistent non-zero days as rule number one rule number two that you are gonna have to be grateful to the three yous call it mumbo jumbo if you want to news flash the three yous are the past you the present you and the future you and if you want to love somebody and have someone to love you back you got to learn to love yourself and the three yous are key you got to be grateful for the past you for the positive things you’ve done and do favors for the future you like you would for your best friend you feeling bad today stop for a second and think of a good decision you made yesterday that salad that fish that protein shake instead of a burger or fries did you save money in your past to buy something that resonated with you and thank the past you are you currently saving toward their dream or that goal you have or that improbable feat then you need to be grateful for the present you the last part of the three yous is you gotta love your future self you gotta do your future self a favor i know you might be tired you may be addicted to a video game or a television series not today present self this one’s for future me no playstation no xbox no distraction i don’t care if it’s one more push-up but one more sit-up or one more page in the book you see the cycle of doing something for someone else future you and thanking someone for the good in your life past you is the key to building gratitude and productivity don’t tell me over time you should spread that gratitude to others who have helped you on your path rule number three you are gonna have to forgive your self i mean it maybe you have all the know-how the money the ability strength and talent to do whatever you want to do but let’s say you still don’t do it now you’re going to give yourself a tough time for not doing what you need to do pick your head up being disappointed in yourself causes you to be less productive if you can forgive yourself you can be healed from the past equipped for the present and care’s vision for the future you owe you forgive you and get on with the rest of your life rule number four is the easiest and it’s three words exercise and books that’s it pretty standard advice but when you exercise daily you actually get smarter you get crystal clear about the road ahead when you exercise you position yourself to win the war when you exercise and you push yourself you attest the limitations of your soul and you’ll become crystal clear both internally and externally that all you have is all you need as for books almost everything we’ve ever thought or failed or gone through or wanted or wanted to know how to do has been figured out by someone else so get some books read seven habits of highly successful people read emotional intelligence read from good to great read thinking fast and slow read books that will help you understand read books that will get you crystal clear on your future read the bodyweight fitness reddit and incorporate it into your workouts reading gets you to the next level faster one last piece of advice though if you wake up tomorrow and you can’t remember the four rules i just laid it out for you read this again watch this video again don’t forget non-zero days as much as you can the three use gratitude and favor forgiveness exercise and books this is how you can dominate and get an unfair competitive advantage in the marketplace and in the game of life and this is the road to self-improvement physically emotionally mentally you got this man no more zero days there was a light inside of every one of us an ember that burns and begs us to become more than what we have ever been it’s our aspiration that must become our allies i noticed that everything that i have accomplished over the course of my life i accomplished with a new set of beliefs and a new set of habits i noticed i was able to make things happen when i destroyed the door in the room see i don’t care what your goal is it could be relationships it could be to lose weight it could be to make more money it could be to become something nobody in your family has ever been the moment that you destroy the door the way out in the room of your dream that’s when you make it happen what you do while you are in pain will echo through the ages scrape the grill of your past and get all that junk out of there of every memory of every failure you need to unplug from everybody and everything that is telling you that you cannot have your future that you cannot have this goal that you can’t do what’s on your heart to do you gotta unplug unplug unplug unplug unplug unplug there are too many people in your life that keep telling you that you are not qualified that you don’t have what it takes that you will never be able to accomplish because your resume ain’t long enough because you don’t have the experience because you are unfixed and so you got to unplug from all the negative voices you got to unplug from everything and everybody that’s telling you you cannot have that dream that you are not qualified to have that dream you gotta unplug gotta upload it may hurt because there are some people that you’re gonna have to let go of there’s some people that that can’t come with you to the next level they’re not qualified to fly at the frequency that you’re flying at they cannot come and you got to get in touch with you so you can’t have the dream unless you know you everybody wants this dream everybody wants this lifestyle but they don’t know themselves and so you need to take some physical evaluation some emotional and psychological evaluation spiritual evaluation and you got to figure out okay what works and what does it and and what are my boundaries and what are my limitations and what am i capable of and what do i need to work on and then you need to connect with the people that believe in your dream life moves at the speed of your relationships connections and circles you need to ask for forgiveness you need to forgive yourself you need to re-prioritize your activities everybody wants the dream to come true but nobody wants to re-prioritize their activities nobody wants to hack into their habitual nature and build new habits that are going to give you the future that you seek that you seek after if not now then when dream big start small gotta dream big start small act now dream big start small act now stop waiting for the temperature to change stop waiting for your feelings to be in check stop waiting for everything to line up it’s never gonna line up it’s never gonna be perfect you just gotta jump you just have to jump there are no roses without rain if you can remember that then you will always see adversity as advantage and obstacle as opportunity know this that your process may be messy but your mess will become your message so what is your why because if your why is powerful enough then you can persevere through the process what is it find it define it be reminded that you can you will you must never give up the actions that you take the moves that you make will echo throughout the ages as there is a generation of people who are attached to your why and if you don’t succeed they’ll never believe so make it happen persistence consistency resilience courage establishing your priorities mastering self-awareness maintaining focus believing that your help is coming because if your dream only requires you it’s not big enough and i know it’s hard right now and i know you feel like quitting but you got to understand there is no tomorrow there is no tomorrow stop lying to yourself and telling yourself that you have time see the greatest lie that you have believed far too long is that you have time you have time that there is a tomorrow that that you can drag your feet and you can you can crawl sometimes you gotta run that kid you can’t crawl towards some dreams you can’t walk towards some dreams some dreams you gotta run towards you gotta run baby run run run run after it run like this no tomorrow run like you know you deserve it run like you know but there is nobody else that can attain it run after it for many of you defeat has traumatized you and it has left an image in your head and this is why you won’t go after it i want you to erase the face of defeat and embrace the process now i know for many of you that’s like a bad word you hate process but see the process is a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end and in order for you to reach your end that end is going to have to be extremely valuable in your eyes the process is muddy the process is murky the process is dark the process is cold the process is going to leave you in places where you’re going to feel like you have been abandoned like nobody believes in you nobody supports you when you don’t see a light at the end of your tunnel you got to remember the light that is burning inside of you that nobody is able to put out there is not a person on this planet that can stop you there is not a person on this planet that can puncture your potential if you can just get through the process just get through the process it’s muddy it’s bloody but it’s worth it at the end of the day it’s worth it no sunrise without a sunset there is no one like you in all of the earth there is no one that can do what you can do you are the only option you are the only play nobody else is going to be able to do this know this that your process may be messy but your mess will become your message so what is your why because if your why is powerful enough then you can persevere through the process what is it find it define it be reminded that you can you will you must never give up the truth of the matter is how are you so emotionally injured so mentally drained so physically fatigued that you have allowed your dream your destiny to take a back seat to this excuse that you don’t have what it takes that you’re not smart enough that you’re not tall enough that you’re not wide enough that you’re not deep enough that you’re not connected enough that you don’t know enough people you keep comparing yourself to that person and this person when will the excuses stop when will you see your purpose bigger than your excuse i don’t know your name but i know you have a dream i don’t i don’t know where you’re from but when you’re listening to me you may be listening to me in your closet your bedroom the gym the car the bus the train the plane i don’t know where you’re going but i know you are going somewhere you’ve got a destination people that make excuses are not connected to their destination they don’t have an endgame they don’t have a goal you have allowed yourself to become a weak link covered under the blanket of excuses but i’m just wondering if there’s anybody here that has a dream and if you’ve made your excuses bigger than your dream the time is now to apply pressure it may not be easy but it’s not impossible this is not a i feel like it today this is not unmotivated for a week this is an every single day mentality you may have to work three times you may have to lose sleep you may have to go to college and raise five children and still maintain your marriage and work your side hustle i don’t know what your story is but if you would keep a no excuse mentality then the sky is not your limit the sky is your starting point this isn’t every single day mentality i never get turned off every single day i want my destiny i want my dream when somebody is in love with who they’ve been called to become what they’ve been called to fulfill what they’ve been destined to do there is no day off there are no like lists i’m not a light switch you can’t turn me off i can never get turned off every single day i’m giving everything i had that’s how big my dream is and so there’s no excuse there’s no pain there’s no dilemma there are no speed bumps there’s no distraction that can turn me off i’m not a light switch you can’t turn me off i want this thing every single day if it’s important to you you’re gonna find a way you won’t have to look for a resource you will become resourceful it’s not always about the accomplishment it’s about the effort if we can just keep that effort going the excuse is irrelevant got to be stronger than your excuses excuses don’t get results now we’ve got to go through the process of being stronger than our excuses we get one opportunity to come this way we get one shot we got one life to live life is too short to make excuses truth is everybody’s got purpose right everybody’s got a dream everybody’s got something they have to pass or achieve or become but we are generationally programmed to love convenience and the truth of the matter is it is so convenient to make an excuse i want to give you just a few things that you can do to help you to stop making excuses to help you to stop habitually gravitating to the place called convenience if you can hear my voice you’ve got work to do you’ve got a destiny to fulfill you’ve got a purpose to walk into you’ve got a test to pass you’ve got dots to connect rooms we all want to do something we all want to be somebody we all want to go somewhere and if we’re if these things are going to happen we’ve got to stop habitually gravitating to excuse number one you gotta stop comparing yourself to everybody else rule number one kill the comparison game i don’t i don’t do it like them and i i don’t say it like them and i don’t i’m not as tall as them and i’m not as strong as them and i i don’t have the money that they have i don’t have the resources that they have i don’t well the reason why i i couldn’t do it because my parents weren’t there for me and the reason why i didn’t get to go to college on a full ride because my coach he didn’t create the highlight field for the sports scholarship that was the reason why and so we equipped with this program to blame everybody else when will you look in the mirror and stop comparing yourself to everybody else compare ourselves to the way people look we compare our stories to their stories and our relationship to their relationship every single day the excuses that we make are like a warm blanket pulled over us covering up the underlining issue of fear the spirit the personality truth is that the reason why you haven’t done it is because you’re afraid maybe if you could just listen to this a couple times maybe you’ll start making so many excuses because the excuse is nothing but a cosmetic it’s makeup it’s a blanket it’s a convenience that we habitually gravitate to because it just makes us feel better but the underlining issue the underlining cancer the inflammation is fear we’re afraid we’re afraid that if we give our best the best isn’t good enough we’re afraid because we’re constantly comparing ourselves to other people we’re afraid that we won’t be seen we’re afraid that people are changed if we evolve we’re afraid that maybe we’ll lose our friends if we begin to shift our thinking you have to have a marriage mentality when it comes to achieving what it is that’s on the inside of you what it is that’s in your head to manifest it and hold it in your hands you have to have a marriage mentality the problem many of you is you keep dating the idea the potential of focus and success and determination and discipline you’re only disciplined once a week you’re only determined twice a week you’re only you’re only enthusiastic about the journey on sundays or wednesdays once you make a covenant you know what i’m going to commit to this you’re going to put the blood you’re going to put the sweat you’re going to put the tears in you’re going to lose sleep you’re going to go days without eating you’re going to do whatever it takes to make the sacrifices necessary to man their best there are too many people in your life who have left you there are too many people in your life who have counted you out there are too many people in your life who have whispered in your ear and said you’ll be worse off without them prove them wrong [Music] keep loving those who have lied on you keep blessing those who have cursed you don’t be bitter don’t be frustrated listen just remain faithful behind the scenes promotion is coming stages and opportunities are being prepared right now as you sacrifice in secret as you put the work in in the dark room as you do what is required i remember being on my job with no possibility of a future and i will never forget the moment that a man walked up to me and looked me in my eyes and told me that this was the best i would be able to do and i came to the resolve in that very moment that greatness would be my new norm what he said to me hit me hard it was a metaphoric massive blow to my face but like a wise man once said you gotta pick your head up like your nose is bleeding and right where they left you for dead elevate where he told me i would retire from that this was the end of the line i came to the resolve that i would not believe the lie i could hear it in the air that the voice of destiny would reside in the place where he wanted me to die i made the decision to fight for my future [Music] you will not pause you will progress [Music] you will not expire you will evolve you will not crumble in the midst of crisis you may be neck deep in what seems to be a catastrophic storm of chaos but i pray that in this moment you will find the calm the peace the hope the faith the courage the expectancy you need to live and not die to move up and not stay where you are you get what you see and that is the formula for expectancy your expectation is what you believe is about to happen and for many of you you have been so traumatized by the past that your expectations are so diminished your expectations have been dying a slow death because of the trauma of the past you expect nothing and so you feel like if i don’t expect anything then you can’t hurt me if i have no expectation on you then you cannot disappoint me if you are going to win the fight for the future you are going to have to have a high expectation it was kobe bryant that said everything negative pressure and challenges is all an opportunity for me to rise it’s crises that reveals what we are comprised of and i ask you the question are you praying the darkness away or are you becoming the highest version of yourself in the midst of the darkness you know when you find yourself standing in the middle of trial tribulation scarcity and uncertainty there is a process from flapping to flight how you process pain will determine your future i need you to fight for the future let this sink in for a minute [Music] you are not your crisis you are not what you are going through what are you expecting the outcome to be because you can’t change what has happened however you can change what will happen your responsibility is once you’ve gone from flapping to flight is to protect your progress to protect your territory you got to get a real boss-like mentality with your territory all the ground that you gain protect your territory i asked you the question when are you going to stop thinking that you are what you are going through when we step into elevation and we get that what i like to call that bird’s eye view we gain a greater perspective when we zoom out [Music] and too many of you are guilty of becoming what you are going through you are not what you are going through see in the game of life those who have an elevated perspective will inherit the future and it is time for you to fight for your future how bad do you want the future i want you to let that question sink in because the day you stop quacking with ducks and start flying with the eagles all of a sudden everything changes but you know for many of you you are addicted to the company of the duck i need you to scrupulously examine the landscape of your relationships because if nobody told you let me be the first one to tell you separation precedes elevation it’s a lot of people in your life that are holding you down that are holding you back there are some people you’re going to have to let go of in order to elevate above the noise above the dysfunction to be a light shining brilliantly through the darkness above the uncertainty high above all murky waters beyond the pain of the test and trial elevated people will always ask themselves what did i learn in the midst of it all king david said in psalms 119 71 it was good for me that i had been afflicted that i might learn thy statues and when you’re stepping in this space in this realm and this world of elevation you are not asking god why am i in pain you are asking god what am i getting ready to become with high expectation elevated people will ask themselves what am i getting ready to become and what will i learn in the midst of this well the world is in panic while the world is perturbed while the world is puzzled you pray and plan your next move [Music] don’t fear the dark ask yourself what did you learn in it adversity is our advantage decide to come out of this better find yourself in this elevated place [Music] everybody wants it we want promotion we want the upgrade we want advancement we want to move up we want to have a competitive advantage in the marketplace my attention has been arrested by the conversation of the bird you know oftentimes learning to fly means falling from the nest and making that long trip back to it and some birds never make it back to the top but for the ones that do once they learn to spread their wings the game changes once they learn to start to spread their wigs and then they begin to flap those wings then all of a sudden their life goes to that next level and i think a lot of you are stuck you’ve spread your wings but you’re afraid to flap them because you’re worried about what people are going to say about you baby bird don’t care what anybody says about what it looks like in its process because process precedes the breakthrough there is something that is burning inside of us to go to the next level to see this one thing that i’m about to bring to your attention and if you’re going to see it if you’re going to see breakthrough then you are going to have to be okay with the process that is required the preceding action and thoughts that are required to see this breakthrough the baby bird spreads its wings then it flaps its wings and it flaps and flaps and flaps until the flapping becomes flight and a lot of you are in this season called flapping and you like man this isn’t flying and you’re looking at everybody and you’re comparing yourself to everybody that’s flying and you’re diminishing your process you’re diminishing your flapping season get through your flapping season with grace and faith see faith is an invitation to the future faith is the door it is the pathway it is the corridor to the future and if you are going to fight for the future you got to fight with faith get through your flapping caesar get through your flapping season i know you got tears in your eyes but get through your flapping season and fight for flight because eventually the flapping turns in to flight [Music] hustling is a mentality it’s a code of conduct the hustler’s mentality is how can this challenge be my opportunity and what can i learn the the hustler thinks differently all roads lead back to the mentality if you’re going to win the fight for your future you’re going to have to prepare your mindset for the workload you can’t be afraid to change you gotta beat on your craft every day i don’t have permission to stop all roads lead back to your mindset your mentality the way that you see this thing is going to determine your future a hustler is committed and consistent so this is not a money to friday thing it’s a monday through monday thing every single day i’m beating on my crap every single day i’m looking to become more than i was yesterday i am not in competition with anybody the hustler says the only person i am competing with is who i used to be yesterday the hustler says i don’t have a second to waste the hustler does not waste time put the hours in no days off mentality a lot of people want to lose weight a lot of people want to see transformation a lot of people want to see something different it’s like if i don’t put the work here i’m not gonna have muscles and so the hustler knows how to prioritize their time the hustler knows how to lock in you gotta lock in whatever it is that you’re setting out to do is going to require a different version of yourself if you’re going to manifest in your hands what you see in your head then you’re going to have the courage the confidence the self-belief and the self-determination to go out every single day and make it happen every single day somebody’s doing something you’re not willing to do to secure the future and so when you go into the day with that mindset that list will shrink the list of people that are out working you it’ll shrink so you got to dedicate to creative time you need an army to fulfill destiny so you got to be connected you got to grow your network and all that you do in your failures and your successes learn from them note takers are the money makers hustlers take notes it’s difficult to manifest what is not written down put me in a room with 100 people i’m going to take more notes than them i’m going to listen better i’m going to have more fun i’m going to learn more i’m going to talk less and so the movement that we see across the earth from the high achievers the successful entrepreneurs those who are launching businesses and organizations it all starts with their mindset their mentality the psychology of a champion is just different hustlers are just wired differently and so the hustler knows how to prioritize their time the hustler knows how to lock in you gotta lock in you have to put the hours in you may have to raise children cultivate your marriage and work your side hustle all at the same time everybody knows if you don’t go to the gym if you don’t get on the treadmill put the cardio in if you don’t hit the weights and lift you’re not going to walk around with the physique that you see in your head it’s going to remain a conversation a vision a dream how do you manifest what you see in your head to holding it in your hand is that you got to have that hustler’s mentality the hustler is going to outwork everybody in the room the hustler says if me and you are on the treadmill two things are going to happen either you’re going to get off first or i’m going to die trying to beat you because i’m completely sold out to the dream division that i’m carrying the difference between game changers and city shakers and the people that just talk about the people that just dream about it have visions about it feel notebooks about it the difference between the two number one is that they are absolutely clear on what it is that they’ve been called to do and what it is they’ve been called to build and who it is they’ve been called to become number two a hustler is committed and consistent the hustler’s mindset is that if i’m going to have something i’ve got to first become something and so hustling can’t be a weekend thing right it can’t be i’m gonna do it this friday i’m gonna do it monday okay i’m motivated on monday it’s a government it’s a lifestyle this is what i do every single day and i don’t have an on and off switch the first thing on a hustler’s radar is not the opportunity it’s the mindset because if i get the opportunity with the wrong mindset i won’t maintain the opportunity i’ll lose it and the hustler understands the power of retention okay so the hustler eliminates distractions the husband says i’m beating on my crab the hustler says i’m going after it the hustler says i can’t afford to miss this moment i can’t afford to overlook this critical time this crucial opportunity i’m gonna give it everything i have period when you’ve got this hustler’s mentality you’re not looking for a handout you just know you have to outwork everybody in the room you got to put the work in after hours you’re not wasting your time being entertained you’re not wasting your time watching tv all day you’re not wasting your time complaining about what you don’t have the hustlers already come to the conclusion that if they don’t have something they have to become so you got to prepare your mindset for what it is that you’re going after if you have to listen to this a thousand times understand how hustlers are wired to psychology of a champion just keep moving keep hustling keep grinding until you no longer have to introduce yourself [Music] destiny is calling even now many of you listening to me have been beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exists but i want to give you a new word for change and that word is evolution and you are either going to evolve or expire see everything changes the economy changes relationships changes we change mentally and emotionally and physically and you are either dying or you are either living [Music] every time you made a change you got hurt and so this is why when you hear the word change there is a mental block you cannot change because you have equated change with pain every time you have changed you feel pain you stepped out of one relationship to another and you feel pain you leave one neighborhood to another and you feel pain you go from one job to another and you feel the fire of transition so every time you hear the word change you see pain every time they say it’s time to make a difference every time they say you need to go from this place to that place all you can see is blood in your eyes all you can feel is the blood and trauma in your mouth hypnotized by the pain of change evolve your belief system change is not pain see change as growth see change as transformation see change as evolution see change as necessary see change as critical see change as inevitable and the more and more you start to see that change is not pain you’re gonna see transformation your life’s gonna experience a quantum leap because now even though in your childhood you were traumatized because of change your history is not your destiny see those of you who will evolve who are willing to evolve you will inherit the future those of you who are willing to take everything you do to the next level you will inherit the future it is the individual who is willing to become more [Music] change is inevitable and you are either changing for the worse or changing for the better you decide [Applause] change is an invitation to the future if i can change i can have my future another reason why people hate change is because not only do they see change as pain but all they see change is as failure and it’s because every time you’ve made a change you have failed and you have to start identifying change with a new layer of belief people tell me all the time it’s hard to get wealthy it’s hard to grind it’s hard to be focused how do you even do these speeches it’s hard to stay motivated it’s hard to stay broke it’s hard to stay depressed it’s hard to stay governed by anxiety it’s hard to be inconsistent it’s hard not to have daily disciplines it’s hard not to believe in yourself it’s hard to be broke it’s hard to be poor it’s hard it’s all hard so choose your heart you either go work for it you’re gonna sit there and let life knock you down and dare you to get back up so i see the privilege i see the moment i see changes pleasure i see changes transformation i see changes evolution i see change as beauty brilliance i see change as the future i see change as necessary i see that if i don’t change there is a generation of people who are going to be stuck in the same place if i don’t evolve see the marketplace rewards those who have evolved the marketplace rewards those who have become more valuable you will be rewarded for the pain cry in secret plead and secret but in public you’ll be rewarded and if everything you listen to goes over your head you are going to miss your moment and stay living in the midst of the madness the madness of in possibility the lie somebody lied to you and told you that it was impossible every time somebody told me i could not do something i had a decision that i had to make in order to achieve what they said was impossible the power is wrapped in the truth and in the power of their perspective it’s wrapped in your capacity your ability to believe in a dream even if nobody believes in you destiny is calling [Music] your perspective can either become your prison or your passport [Music] it can either arrest you or release you [Music] in 1903 it was the wright brothers that defied the laws of gravity and if you know anything about gravity gravity will pull you down and keep you down it will stop you from flight it will stop you in your tracks if you believe in something metaphorically speaking gravity will hold you down it will hold you back and it will dare you to fight your perspective can either breathe your prison or your plane i don’t know about you but today [Music] i made the decision to defy the laws of gravity the first successful heavier-than-air powered aircraft was designed and built by the wright brothers they flew it four times on december 17 1903 near kiel devil hills about four miles i believe possibility is destiny and it is fear that keeps us arrested and apprehended by the spirit of impossibility i’m gonna tell you this right now and nobody else is gonna tell you this impossible is a spirit and you’ve got to arrest that spirit or it will arrest you impossibility is like a soda fountain the easy way out the path of least resistance because to say something is impossible to give up to cop out to feel your cup of carbonated excuses it tastes good but it doesn’t sit well as it goes down into your system to remove the two letters is the grit of existence the binding faith of hope to your chest and letting your heart beat you got to rewrite the code you got to rewrite the script calling all reformers i’m calling all innovators i’m calling all game changers i’m calling all world shakers i’m calling all city shifters i’m calling everybody that has an inkling of faith in themselves by calling everybody you will inherit the future we got to rewrite the code in our soul because it’s a matter of the soul it’s a matter of the will people that have a will to win are the ones who who win these are the people that see the future these are the people that see not where the hockey puck is but they see where the hockey puck is going that’s the type of person that we all need to evolve to become i learned years ago that the difference between people that get things done and people that do not is sheer willpower [Music] out of all the motivational speeches you have heard how much of it have you retained and applied to your life because understanding the power and the difference between what is impossible and what is possible it all comes back to your perspective and your capacity if your why is big enough then your will will be powerful enough to persevere through the how you’re not looking for resources when you have a will you become resourceful and that’s the difference between people that see this thing as possible and people that do not it comes down to one thing and that is your will so you don’t want it bad enough you don’t want it bad enough that’s why you can’t get it done and so the how intimidates you and and and the what boxes you in we’re more concerned about collaboration than character i think we need to come back to a place where we’re examining ourselves as an individual before our people we make the people better when we deal with the person you got to deal with the person you got to deal with you it’s always going to be impossible to you if you don’t see the power of your will and the power of your why there are key components and key ingredients in the recipe of a student mentality number one you need to be disciplined the future is very expensive and only those who are carriers of discipline can inherit the future i need you to stay motivated i don’t care if you have to listen to me a thousand times i need you to stay motivated and i need that motivation to mature into discipline but i need you to be self-aware so i need you to remember that you are always learning in life you are always learning and i need you to believe in yourself i need you to see yourself capable lovable and unconditionally worthy of your future turn your pain into progress i need you to see yourself see yourself one of the things that many students lack is vision you got to see yourself before you get there you have to hear yourself telling yourself thank you [Music] i need you to open up your ears open up your ears because the you from the future is telling you thank you thank you for not giving up when you wanted to give up thank you for not being depressed thank you for not allowing the brokenness to eat your progress thank you thank you thank you you got this it’s going to get hard sometimes i’m telling you right now it’s not going to be easy but it’s worth it maybe you’re listening to me right now you want to lose weight or you you’re trying to pass the final exam or maybe there’s just this feat that seem is dope it is impossible to turn your pain into progress turn your pain into progress i need you to be uncomfortable with average i need you to be allergic to average i need you to come to the end of yourself so many people are depending on you a student is hard-working a student is mentally tough have the ability to adapt have a character consistency demonstrate courage on the daily stay motivated stay positive earn your respect have a winning attitude breathe compete make no excuses set goals practice great habits stay focused you want your future you gotta outwork everybody on that field you gotta outwork everybody in the room you gotta learn how to perform under pressure you got to leave it all out on the field everybody want the future but everybody wants to be average [Music] they’re going to be times when you feel like you’re losing your mind and you study for hours and you’re going to take an exam and you will not pass a student is resilient a student is disciplined a student is committed a student is consistent even when they don’t want to be because the cycle of depression needs to end with you the cycle of not enough needs to end with you the lack and the dysfunction and the anxiety and all of these things that your family and your father and your mother have gone through you have to keep a student mentality [Music] i studied and i failed the exam i studied and i failed the test and life is an uphill war and it is filled with tests and exams and critical moments where you are going to have to dig deep inside of yourself and ask yourself why why did you start in the first place and what was the emotion the feeling what was the science and the psychology behind the decision that you made and nine times out of ten i can tell you why you started you started because you were hungry hunger is the feeling of discomfort or weakness caused by a lack of food coupled with a desire to eat how hungry are you when you feel like drawing in a town when you feel like surrendering everything you work for remember why you started remember how you felt when you started you were hungry when you want to let go when you want to surrender when you want to stop when you’re ready to quit when you have failed and failed again let me remind you what got you here hunger got you here a strong desire got you here you were desperate to break curses in your family you were desperate to break the cycle of poverty and depression you are desperate hunger catch you here remember this every dream requires discipline every dream requires discipline you can travel the world and study students and their behaviors and their mindsets there is a science behind achievement and when you study the most successful students in the world we find that they are responsible they are motivated they are self-managed they are self-aware they have a long-lasting student mentality even after they have passed the test because they understand that life is a test and in life there are ups and there are downs and so accept the responsibility see yourself as primarily responsible for your outcomes and your experiences you are going to need discipline motivation will help you get started but discipline is going to keep you on the road to your destiny you got to be self-motivated you got to find purpose in what you do by discovering personally meaningful goals and dreams if you’re going to be a successful student if you’re gonna come out on top you’ve got to start managing your time you plan and you take action in pursuit of your goals and dreams so let me tell you something everybody has a dream that there is a behavior that must follow your belief system remember this behavior follows belief if you have not been able to change your behavior to match your dream then you need to go back and examine your belief because 10 times out of 10 if you can’t change your behavior to match your dream then you don’t believe when somebody believes everything changes the time is coming where you are going to feel like giving up but you’re going to have to remember why you started you got to dig deep and learn how to create possibilities for yourself when nobody gives you an opportunity you have to turn your mess into your message [Music] study strategy over the years and achieve the spirit of the warrior today is a victory over yourself of yesterday tomorrow is your victory over lesser men [Music] there is a student mentality in all of us that must be tapped into a student is resilient a student is disciplined it is only through discipline that you will experience the freedom of a warrior a student never surrenders see the strategy is the plan the strategy the game plan the plan of action the recipe the how must be studied before the first step is taken i am convinced that so many of us lose because of what we were not willing to study we must grow a discipline to deliberately investigate what we are getting ready to enter into we must be calculated as we enter into new seasons into new relationships this is the road to becoming a warrior an experienced skilled and calculated soldier a fighter a game changer somebody who refuses to stay down this is somebody who is set apart from those who operate in the realm of normalcy this is somebody who is above and beyond we got a bit of a work ethic to go after it a student is a disciple and a disciple is disciplined disciplined to achieve the spirit of the warrior they are perfectly positioned for victory daily discipline is an invitation out of normalcy a man who studies is a man who is allergic to average so you are a warrior then you don’t even know it take a deep breath inhale and exhale inhale and exhale after today everything is about to change because change starts with you [Music] to understand this is to know the difference between men and lions you must understand that there is more than one path to the top of the mountain and in this very moment all you have is all you need see somebody lied to you and told you that life is about acquiring more to move forward what if i told you that getting to the top of the mountain was not about acquiring more but about becoming more that if you can become then you will find your authentic path to the top everybody wants to go to the top but nobody wants to discover new ways to climb there find your authenticity discover your identity we’re all told if you want to get to the top follow the leader but that is a broken mentality yes leaders are necessary but we must be fully aware when we have been called to lead to blaze our own trail to discover a new way this daunting is exhausting to get to the top but there is more than one way then you will discover that way by not acquiring so it is not the more that you get the faster you go it is the more you become the quicker you will elevate and so getting to the top of the mountain has more to do with becoming than acquiring what is your mountain what is your trial who is the giant standing in front of you name it and defeat it the climb is just as important as the arrival the top is the end game but the process is what will make you [Music] think lightly of yourself and deeply of this world [Music] life begins at the end of your comfort zone at the end of your ego and your insecurities but when you come to the end of yourself and the beginning of the understanding of our world why we are here and what is our purpose [Music] and all of a sudden everything changes think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world the world is vast over 7.5 billion people walk the face of this planet there is so much here creation the antelope the trees the mountains [Music] the stars people from every nation in every town we have economy we have industry we have technology we are more advanced than ever before so take a moment and agree never to self sabotage yourself [Music] no more self-condemnation [Music] that you cease to see the opportunities in this world how beautiful our planet is to think likely of yourself and deeply of this world is an invitation out of your ego out of your insecurities out of what you think you cannot do it is to look beyond your program it is to think of your legacy it is to think of what you will leave behind it is to think of your contribution and your impact even in this moment in the midst of trial in the midst of tribulation ask yourself the question what can i contribute you see conflict is necessary trial is is needed it causes us to create to be proactive to be inventive it moves us to become pioneers what type of mark will you leave in the earth what will be your legacy man has always been haunted by the vastness of eternity and so we ask ourselves when we are long gone will our names remain [Music] you’re broke welcome to the club you’re scared welcome to the club you’re not sure welcome to the club there is nothing i mean literally nothing you were facing right now that the great ones didn’t face before it ain’t just you dealing with it everybody gotta deal with insecurities everybody gotta deal with fear and you might have to say i’m going to get through this over and over and over until you believe it the great ones fight through everyone has challenges and setbacks that’s a part of the journey can you please do you a favor and get out of your head you still wishing and you’re still hoping for you’re still planning like you’ve been planning this for five years get out of your own head because once you taste that success i want you to keep eating once you get success on your lips i want you to keep drinking once you understand the keys of success it’s not the end it is only the beginning because you understand once you get that breakthrough you finally understand what you’re capable of purpose is bigger than the pain and the promise is bigger than the process and i know it’s hard right now and i know you feel like quitting but you got to understand there is no tomorrow there is no tomorrow stop lying to yourself and telling yourself that you have time see the greatest lie that you have believed far too long is that you have time you have time that there is a tomorrow that that you can drag your feet and you can you can crawl sometimes you gotta run you can’t crawl towards some dreams you can’t walk towards some dreams some dreams you gotta run towards you gotta run baby run run run run after it run like there’s no tomorrow run like you know you deserve it run like you know there is nobody else that can obtain it run after it you got a lot more to do all you got to do is get out your way all you got to do is believe and all you got to do my friend is to start and i mean start now there is a boat that you’re gonna have to take to this island and when you get to that island there are many mountains you must climb but in order to get to the top of that mountain you gotta burn the boat you came to that island on you see for many of you you keep giving yourself options you keep giving yourself ways out there was a mentality that must be adapted in order for you to win it’s called there is no tomorrow there is no tomorrow you gotta start now the gift of now is powerful this is a day that you have never seen before and this is also a day that you will never see again you said the same stuff last year bro that was your excuse last year i’m too busy that’s a good one but not good enough why are you busy and running from your purpose nobody will help me woe is me nobody will support me honestly until you start for real until you launch there ain’t nothing to support people tired of hearing you talking about it we can’t help you we can’t support you until you get started start now no time to wait you have a purpose it is imperative that you do not waste the time that you have been given stop talking about your imperfections start now ain’t nobody perfect because you’ll never be perfect start now you got haters with all your haters i’ve been telling you since the 90s if you don’t have haters your vision is too small gotta dream big start small act now dream big start small act now see stop waiting for the temperature to change stop waiting for your feelings to be in check stop waiting for everything to line up it’s never going to line up it’s never going to be perfect you just got to jump you just have to jump you have to believe in yourself because you already know what defeat feels like you already know what the pain feels like you already know what uncertainty and doubt and insecurity feels like you already know what failure feels like give yourself a chance start now you have a life assignment and in order to fulfill your assignment you’re going to have to take advantage of every hour and every minute that you are gifted each day anybody who has ever achieved any level of success will tell you you got to get out of your feelings your feelings are going to keep you locked in a prison of paralysis addicted to a drug called comfort this is your dream i mean this is your passion for real this is your goal which means you got to drive it which means you got to get in the driver’s seat which means you got to grab the steering wheel and you got to make it move even if you got to start this trip alone now i know that there are some things that you have been hoping will happen i get it i’m a visionary i’m a dreamer but i’m also an action taker and today i want to encourage you to go beyond talking about what you want to see happen and get to work you pick up your support along the way you pick up your help along the way but every great person every great woman every great man they started their journey all along and they picked up help support and momentum along the way nobody can help you do anything until you start so you gotta start now you have to change your perspective you have to change your expectation and you gotta believe that this time the lights gonna come on this time your parachutes gonna open anybody that’s ever achieved any level of success will tell you they had the job because the great was pushed through they had the same thoughts you had don’t you think you’re the only one thinking these thoughts they had the same thoughts you had but they pushed through steve harvey said these years ago if you want it you gotta jump you gotta make that move and you can’t wait to feel right you can’t wait to be comfortable you can’t always be calculated sometimes you’re not gonna have all the answers i don’t want you to be a superhero to everyone else and then turn around and let yourself down i want you to appreciate and utilize the gifts the talents the skills and the positive attributes that you have been given you are not afraid to fail my friend what you are afraid of is success because all you had inside your head for so long is those negative thoughts the whole time you’ve been talking yourself out of it and everybody around you been trying to talk you into it give yourself an opportunity walk through the door it’s waiting for you if you can’t find a door you got to build the door stop waiting until the conditions are perfect to begin and make the conditions perfect stop waiting for resources and become resourceful stop and stop and stop it you get to choose how you will spend your time and energy you get to choose what you will do with your now what are you waiting for the perfect time there is no perfect time the perfect season there is no perfect season because you don’t even have to be here you don’t even have to be alive and you are listening to me right now every breath that you breathe is mercy and you better take advantage of that it is a gift that did not have to be given to you and so act now so let’s stop talking about it and let’s get it remove yourself from the list of people that have disappointed you that have lied to you that have let you down you are number one on that list remove yourself the real you is breathing down your neck begging you to manifest stop lying to yourself stop letting you down you gotta kill the blame game stop blaming it on the person that walked out on you stop blaming it on the person that overlooked you stop blaming it on the person that undervalued you stop blaming it on the person that did not promote you that did not see it that did not believe it stop blaming everybody and look yourself in the mirror it’s your fault you failed you started the year with a little motivation and a few ideas and it all tanked before february and the thing you gotta ask yourself is am i gonna repeat my history or will i blaze a new trail because history for many of you is insecurity history for many of you is depression and anxiety and that substance you can’t shake and that person you can’t leave history for many of you is they’re better than me history for many of you is nobody will show up if i build it i don’t have the time i’m not good enough it’s time to get out of the way it is because of you that you are not where you want to be you are the issue it’s you your issue is you nobody has lied to you more than you and so here’s what i need you to do go find the mirror go for a walk go for a drive tell yourself this is my you got to be willing to do what 98 of the people in this world are unwilling to do you got to eat differently you got to work differently you got to think differently you got to talk differently you got to walk differently if you want elevation if you walk next level if you want to see this thing differently this year everything you do has to change your insecurity has been in the way too long your jealousy your envy has been in the way too long the fear you’ve been wrestling with has been in the way too low get out of the way it’s time to stop watching two percent of the earth’s population crush it win execute finish what they start do what they say they gonna do snap out of it you got work to do i get it i get it if we pull up your history we’ll find a lot of brokenness we’ll find a lot of trauma we’ll find a lot of empty places if we pull up your history we’ll find a lot of failures this must be the year that you are not defined by your history but you fulfill your destiny why are you here what will you place here to do get to work get to work get to work because if you continue to lie to yourself you won’t be able to diagnose and treat your condition your dysfunction your disorder in order to treat it and change it it must be identified and once you identify you got to accept this reality and the problem with many of you is you have not accepted the fact that you are lazy you have not accepted the fact that you are inconsistent you can’t diagnose what you have not identified sometimes you need to go find a mirror and tell yourself with tears in your eyes i am the problem once we stop accusing everybody else for our inconsistency and our lack of execution all of a sudden the world opens up we all need to get serious about our lives and ask yourself the question what is my god-given destiny why am i here why have i survived some of the most brilliant minds of our generation are high school and college dropouts let me ask you a question when are you going to drop out of the mentality that you are not enough please please do yourself a favor and dispense with the excuses that you don’t have time dispense with the excuse that you’re not good enough dispense with the excuse that nobody would show up if i build it that too many people are better than me drop out of the i tried it last year and it didn’t work no you didn’t work [Music] doubt’s going to knock at your door insecurities go knock at your door and adversity and trial and tribulation is going to knock at your door and difficult tasks will lock at your door and so you need to be prepared ready or not it’s coming are you prepared if you’re going to win the year if you’re going to win in life then you got to be prepared you need perspective and you need discipline we get into this information constipation state where it’s like we know all these things to do and really it puts us in a state of paralysis because it’s like you heard it all before you’ve seen it all before i mean really social media has made the world so small right information travels at the speed of light and so you got all this information and so we become sedated by information we become satisfied and content with the fact that we know to do good but to know to do good and not to do it is a disease it is wickedness the time is now to start applying what you know what’s the point of taking notes what’s the point what’s the point of buying courses what’s the point of joining communities what’s the point of making the investment some of you have journals full of dreams and no action has been taken you will find that the men and women that turned the world upside down were the ones who got out of their own way get to work you owe you a lot of us we watch we watch everybody win in every facet of life we watch the underdog rise under the lights and we think to ourselves when is it going to be my time when is it going to be my time and in order to be next you gotta see this thing differently you gotta change the way you live you eat you walk you talk you think and once you walk in that newness then you’ll be next when inconvenience becomes pleasure when you have your mind made up that no matter how you’re feeling every day you’re going to give it everything you have you’re going to give you’re going to see you’re going to sow you’re going to serve and give it everything you have then all of a sudden the world opens up to you come to the resolve this year that dedication discipline perspective preparation is going to be your new code of conduct motivation has an expiration date and when motivation dies discipline must take its place the only way you’re gonna do the only way you’re gonna accomplish the only way you’re going to execute is if discipline takes the place of your motivation but until that motivation expires and evolves into discipline you will never become who god is called to become first we conquer the day and then we execute the week and that week turns into a month and that month turns into a quarter and that quarter turns into a year and then all of a sudden you look up and you’re no longer just this motivated onlooker you are a disciplined desperate dangerous fulfiller of destiny what in the world are you waiting for there are people that are depending on you god place you in this world to do something get to work you may be average you may be ordinary but you have the opportunity every single day to make extraordinary decisions and what you do today will determine your future the future is very expensive the currency to get to the future the bridge that we build it is built on your daily decisions your habits your programming the way that you think the way that you talk the way that you walk blood sweat tears sacrifice people that you have to let go sleep that you have to lose multiple jobs that you have to work hours on end of study beating on your craft every single day it’s not easy but it’s worth it they’re gonna be nights you’re gonna cry yourself to sleep they’re gonna be times you’re gonna want to throw in the towel but if you keep going your future self will thank you if you can hear your future self talking to you now the future you would say thank you for not giving up thank you for not throwing in the child thank you for not allowing the despair and the anguish and the anger and the bitterness and the jealousy and the ego to eat away at your progress and your perseverance and your ability to travail and endure i believe in the future number one you gotta get crystal clear about who you believe you’ve been destined to be because everybody’s looking to manifest we are all looking to evolve we are all looking to level up what is your life’s purpose what is your destiny why on earth are you here [Music] what is it that you can do today to get closer to the fulfillment of that future to get closer to the manifestation of the future what are you doing today what are you giving today remember why you had to let some people go remember why you’re working so hard towards this thing you’re pressing you’re pushing your claw and you’re dragging yourself through mud and through murky water come on remember why you’re doing what you’re doing it may be difficult it may seem impossible the moment that you discover why you’re here spend the rest of your life executed there are going to be times when you give everything you have and everything that you have is not enough [Music] push through the pain push through the anguish push to the brokenness do not stop it’s the no quit mentality wherever you are now is not where you’re going to end up you are special and you’ve been designed to change the world so many of us want so many different things and our life is filled with entertainment and recreation and people that we have not appraised have you appraised your connections have you done a scrupulous evaluation of everyone in your life are they assets or are they liabilities yes you want the future what’s your plan and then the moment that you create the plan and you’ve ironed out all the kinks and you’re crystal clear and you’ve got this plan you’ve got this aim this target then you got to stay committed with tears in your eyes you’re going to be committed when your brain is hurting you’ve got to be committed when you haven’t gotten sleep in a few days you got to be committed you got to plow through that depression that heaviness that weariness and you got to cling to the joy of the thought of the future that if you finish this course then there is a reward at the end of this pain you may feel as though you are not able to breathe now you may be inundated with responsibility and it seems as though there is no way out of this have to be grateful for the ground that you gain and guard the ground that you’ve gained celebrate the small wins if we keep looking at the big picture if we keep looking at the end game if that’s all we fix our eyes on then we’ll get off kilter we’ll lose our footing and we’ll walk around discouraged because you’re not going to just wake up in one day and fulfill destiny it’s the process that’s perfecting us it’s the ends and the outs and the nuances it’s the song and the dance between destiny and the journey and the process and the promise and we’ve got to learn how to execute the day give us this day we gotta learn how to execute the day get your of the day [Music] i’m not where i’m supposed to be but i’m not where i used to be and so we’ve got to celebrate the small winds those mental winds those emotional winds those relational winds those financial winds those spiritual wins we’ve got we’ve got to celebrate celebrate and then we’ve got to be kind not only to others throughout our process but we’ve got to be kind to ourselves the problem with many of us is that we’re not kind to ourselves be kind to yourself you can be assertive you can be direct you can be firm but you can have a little empathy and a little kindness not only on others but on yourself because the truth of the matter is you are not going to always feel like doing what you were designed to do okay so we’ve got to condition ourselves for the stretch with gratitude we’re going to need that coupled with patience the future takes time to manifest the future takes time because you are beautifully equipped to get the results you are currently getting and there are some bigger results that you are after and in order to get those results in order to manifest that’s very specific future you’re going to have to acquire a different set of skills a different work mentality it’s going to require you to become a different version of yourself elevation is all over you okay next you got to seize the opportunity there are so many opportunities for you to grow so many opportunities for you to learn so many opportunities for you to share for you to give you to understand for you to think for you to be quiet for you to speak and you’ve got to know when to do what to do wide to do this is the paradigm of the future the future has a specific paradigm that you have to execute you have to walk in this you’re going to have to move from limited beliefs and you’re going to have to move into limitless believing you have to know your boundaries establish your guardrails you got to know your weaknesses and your strengths [Music] do not stop it’s the no quit mentality [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] so so [Music] you
