Where Is Your Life Going ?

(Email Readers: see the video)

What I said in the video:

“What’s happening folks!

Matt Horwitz, hope you’re well.

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….

So, you’re a ship…

Figure out the direction that you’re heading.

Alright, keep rockin’… talk to you soon!”

Get Off the ‘Easy Train’: The Benefits of Hard Work

A while back I wrote a post about being careful with the words that we chose, …


  1. Hey Matt, thanks for this video. I was having a particularly hard day today so, like usual, I turned to some sweet people to pick me up – Noah Kagan, Neville Medhora, and YOU, my man!

    I’m not quite at the 100% I want to be at today – I’m getting there – but I’m sure as hell a lot better than the 20% or so I woke up at. So thanks :-)

    • Hey Ben, I’m happy that it had an impact.

      I hear you on the waking up feeling shitty thing man… it just seems to be a part of the flow.

      My productivity was off the charts in April, then the past few days, I’ve been staying up late and waking up late.. not an ideal situation when I need to make money and take care of a number of things….

      But, I decided to go w/ the flow and just rock out “what is”… and in doing so, I’m able to rise up from the “dips” we slide into much quicker than in the past.

      It’s all about the ebbs and flows…

      … and like Winston Churchill said:

      “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

      Just keep moving forward and I think the secret is… just don’t quit !

      Noah and Neville are guys I keep an eye on… cool guys, great businesses, into growth, and making a dent in the universe ;)

      Keep rockin’ man !
