Everybody is trying to make you fix all your shortcomings, disregard this. Instead, Triple down on your strengths.
What do you want? Whatever it may be, you need to reverse engineer your ambition and go get it. It is basic.
Do you care about what other people think? Then you are vulnerable right then and there.
The truth is, when you are coming from good intent, you do not have to be worried about what other people think.
It is gratitude! It is one life, one at-bat, one time. You just do not want to see that regret in your eyes when it is all said and done that you see in so many.
Never be worried about losing because when you face the situation you have to explain why you made the decisions you did, nobody is going to be like wow, what an idiot, or what a bad person, or judge you based on some secret thing you had in mind. Be open and transparent with your reasoning so if you lose, you lose.
99 percent of things you have to “choose” in life really do not matter and even on the biggest things, it is always better to go with your gut than to overthink it.
Whether that is school, your business, where to work, or where to live, it is better to decide, test and react than become overwhelmed with options and the possibility crippling your decision to move forward.
The moral of the story is: the more you do, the more you learn. The more you learn from doing, the more trust and ease you will have with making decisions. The more trust you have with yourself in making decisions, the easier it will become to act when the time calls for it.
At the end of the day, when you come from a good place, there is no wrong decision. There might be short-term consequences because you can not always win, but long-term, net-net, you will always come out on top.
DEPLOY SELF-AWARENESS, ASAP!
You just have to know yourself. You have to deploy self-awareness. You are going to have to start paying attention to what you do well and start spending all of your time on what you are good at instead of spending all of your time on what you are bad at.
If you want something, go fucking get it, but you need to make a decision today!
Are you going to finally eat shit and do something about it?
Are you going to make pretend you are a business person because it feels nice or are you going to become a business person?
Eating shit for a decade and doing it for yourself is good for you.
Do you actually know what you are doing? Are you actually putting in the work? Do you really want this that bad or do you want to make it look like you want it that bad?
You only get to live this life one time. Once.
One very smart thing you can do is go volunteer at a nursing home or go hang out with people that are 70, 80, 90, like your grandparents or your great-grandparents. The number one thing they will tell you is they regret the things they did not do, so try.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Just because somebody’s going to make fun of you on your YouTube video, you are not going to care in three, four, five, six years, but what you might have left on the table was the thing that would have changed your life.
It is time. Go do!
Today is Your Day.
Win All Day.
