Living with 7 cats… “So Dan, where do you want to go?” I only had one answer in my mind…
Today I had a conversation with my colleagues about my living situation, which I think I have had with almost everyone now… It’s a good icebreaker though, haha!
My answer was “Ahead, only!“
Let me share why:
The question is what are you going to do with your time. What drives you. Greatness is a lot of small things done well. Day, after day. Workout after workout. Obedience after obedience. Day after day.
When things don’t work out for you. When things happen that you could not anticipate. What are the reasons that you can think of that can keep you strong.
We will never ever be successful, until we turn our pain into greatness, until we allow our pain to push us from where we are to push us to where we need to be. My advice would be: Stop running from your pain and embrace your pain. Your pain is going to be a part of your prize, a part of your product. I challenge you to push yourself.
See it’s easy to be on the bottom, it doesn’t take any effort to be a loser. It doesn’t take any motivation and any drive in order to stay down there on a low level. But it calls on everything in you. You have to harness your will to say I’m going to challenge myself.
I mean that what you did last week don’t count. Today, today is the only important day. There are eighty-six thousand, four hundred seconds in a day and how you use those are critical. You got eighty-six thousand, four hundred today and what you do today is going to cement who you are. Nobody gonna talk about what you did last week.
Yet the biggest enemy that you have to deal with is yourself. There’s an old African proverb that says “If there’s no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm.”
You have this opportunity of a lifetime. It means absolutely nothing if you don’t take advantage of it in the lifetime of this opportunity.
