You’re a ship, you’re on the fuckin’ ocean, if you don’t have a destination, where do you think you’re going to end up?
Bear with me…. I know this analogy seems pretty stupid…
But, what’s even stupider is how many people don’t get this stupid analogy.
You need to have a fuckin’ vision, you need to have a direction, you need to have a goal, an end-point as so to where you’re heading…
Because if you don’t… you’re going to go all over the place, which is gonna waste a lot of your time and energy and have you experience all kinds of crazy stuff… and take you really far off from where you wanted to go.
A lot of people can get swayed in their life because some tells them, “Hey, you should do this!”, or, “Hey, can you help me with this?”… and they don’t know where the fuck going so they don’t know what to say “yes” to and what to say “no” to…
They don’t have a clear vision…
They don’t have an end-point…
They don’t know where they’re going.
How do you determine where you want to go in life?
It’s called your VALUES.
What is most important to you?
How do you uncover… how do you find out… how to discover… how do you define what your values are?
Because when you know what your value are… when you know what the fuck you’re mission… what you’re about… what your going towards…
When something comes in your way as a distraction, right?…. pooof! You just plow right through it…
You just keep going forward because you’re on a MISSION, you’re on your path… you know where you’re going… you have CLARITY and FOCUS… you have a destination point, alright?
Someone wants some of your time… this is like taking your ship and going in this direction… what do you say? No.
Because you know that what this person wants you to do… yea… what they’re asking of you, or what they want you to do does not align with your values… it does not take you where you want to go, so you say no.
And a lot of people think life is “hard”…
Well you know who has a hard time in life?…
Those that know the least.
So how do you know more in life?
You DIRECT your learning… you DIRECT your education… you UNCOVER, you FLESH OUT, you THINK ABOUT… you journal… you write… do whatever it takes to figure out what your values are so you can figure out the direction you’re heading into…
So that when things come up in life, you know what decisions to make because your decisions on based on the alignment… on going in the direction in where you want to go, okay?
Really simple analogy… really profound results.
Figure out what the heck you’re values are in life, and then know what will help you get there, right?
Someone says, “Hey, I got this new little engine-thing you can put on your ship that will help you get there faster.”
You’re like, “Hmmm… that aligns with where I’m going… yea, I’ll take that on.”
Somebody else is like, “Hey, well let me do this and blah blah blah”… and then they want to throw like a 40-pound sack of rocks on your ship.
You say “No, get the hell out of here… you’re not doing that,” ’cause it doesn’t align with your values.
Check out this video right here [pointing to video]… this video’s going to help you figure out… it’s kind of like a 14-minute exercise which I learned from somebody else and I’ve done it a few times…
Which will help you FIGURE OUT, through a series of questions that I ask you in the video, what your values are… and then when you figure out what those values are, you will be amazed my friends at what CLARITY will come from that in the months after….
Did you ever hear somebody tell you this? “Oh yeah, but he’s so talented” or, but you know “you’re young that’s why you can do that,” or “you’re old that’s why you can do that,” or “you have money that’s why you can do that,” or “you have blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, that’s why you can do this and this and that.”
Do you know what happens when people do that, do you know what’s really taking place? They’re giving their power away. Right?
Listen up, don’t give your fucking power away. Stop making up excuses about “oh, this person can do that.” It’s not that you’re making up excuses and such, it’s that you’re giving yourself an excuse to not do something that somebody else was able to do.
Look, I don’t care where somebody is located, how old they are, how successful, unsuccessful, how creative, how analytical, how whatever they are – if somebody else has done something – I don’t give a shit what you think or where you are, you can do it too!
And if you don’t think you can, it’s because you’re attaching yourself to a limiting belief, and if you really want to keep it, I’ll let you keep your limiting belief, but I tell you, you can probably do a lot better if you drop it and work on your mindset.
Because I guarantee you, if you’re telling me this person can do it because they got more money, because they’re stronger, because they’re bigger, they’re taller, they’re skinnier, they’re whatever, right?
What was I just saying about that point…
Don’t give your power to that. Don’t give your power to those excuses because I guarantee you, I guarantee you, I can find somebody out there who’s in a worse situation than you are and they fuckin’ made it happen. They made it happen.
Do you know why?
Probably because they worked on their mindset, probably because they changed their beliefs and started to read information and hangout with people who supported their values.
Probably because they decided to look into what they’re values were. Instead of always comparing themselves to other people and making up excuses why they can’t do this and they can’t do that.
I’m walking past this really cool building and there’s this really – “aaawww hello kitty”… never mind… he’s scared – so that’s pretty much just my little thought here.
Don’t give your power away. Don’t give your power away.
Humans inherently all have similar and intrinsic characteristics, traits etc. And never be envious or jealous of somebody else. You know how you reframe that? You be fuckin’ inspired. And you change your mind set to say “Hey, if they did that? I can do that!”
Albert Einstein is probably not much different than you? Except that he just decided to change his thoughts, his beliefs, his attitudes, and then start taking action in that direction, and what happened? The compound effect, like that happens with everything.
You give it time, you keep doing it, it becomes more and more powerful… it just basically, it’s a multiplier.
And you can have a multiplier in the negative direction, or a multiplier in the positive direction because there’s plenty of people I know who are like in their forty’s and their fifty’s, or whatever age, thirties, sixty’s, seventy’s, eighty’s, maybe you’re ninety years old, right?
And they still think that “life is hard” or “you can do that because you’re young”… you know what, and they’ve been hanging to that belief so long. And again, if you really want to hang on to your limiting beliefs, if you really want to argue against yourself, I mean keep it if you want.
It’s fucking stupid in my opinion but you’re free to do whatever you want, but if you’ve listened this far, maybe something makes sense. Maybe you should stop giving your power away and start thinking about how you can generate power. How you can tweak your mindset just a little bit, right?
Think about it… a ship going east if it changes its direction one degree, it’s going to end up in a very different place, 2,000 miles from now. Small changes always lead to big changes.
If you can steer the direction of your attitude just a degree or two in a different direction, my friends, in a few years that will make the fuckin’ difference between you enjoying and living the fantastic life, or you being like those negative, miserable person that nobody wants to hang around.
So, stop giving your power away. Stop making up excuses for why you can’t do something and somebody else could and never be envious or jealous of what somebody else did and only be inspired.
And then because they did it, create the mindset that ,“damn, if someone else can do it, I can do it too”.
