  • We become what we think about

  • focus on what you want

  • Rather than focusing on what you don't want. So who do you want to be?

  • You know, why? Why did why are you here on this planet?

  • You live according to the principles of love compassion, you know appreciative joy, you know celebrating other people's

  • Successes, but how do you overcome hatred and

  • Confusion and just having a good heart

  • Then I think that's what happened to me

  • Then I start to get clear about what I like to do and how I can be of service

  • How can I help other people?

  • That we were wired for success, but it's how we relate to our experience that determines whether

  • We're chipping away or we're you know, kind of burying of that sense of wholeness

  • That we that were born with it just that we

  • Forget it. We don't look inside. We're looking outside

  • And so unless we're still and we think about it and we understand that I was born with this masterpieces

  • No one can give it to me or take it away. It's it's an inside job

  • And so if I look at what's right, it just it makes makes a lot of sense

  • so it's whether you're coming from a place of

  • Scarcity or I would say survival mode or coming from growth mode which has to do with yes

  • I can't yes to life and I I have the capacity and the

  • responsibility to

  • Make it different but to make it make it better

  • Having that faith that vulnerability that just see things that are hard to see

  • Gotta get comfortable being uncomfortable

  • So can you handle the truth?

  • It's a question

  • and if you can't

  • then you if you see that that you can say well is if I'm going to change I'm gonna have to figure out how to

  • deal with that discomfort

  • until the point that I can see what I need to see then I can change it so as the persistence of

  • Continuing to do something that you can do it is

  • Is most of the work this is just continuing to make mistakes learn from mistakes, but the mistakes are viewed as feedback

  • Not as I'm a failure, it's just an event now who we are

  • So that error correction is really important and when you can see when you attributed this something you can learn

  • Or change now you've got faith and confidence to do it

  • Versus if you're seeing it like, oh, I'm just not strong enough. I'm not tall enough and all of that. That's just

  • That's what I call the negative committee telling you. You can't do anything rather than saying well, let me see

  • What can I what I can do so it's like a child learn how to walk right? Same thing

  • Your life can change your life can be more than just a place it can be your future your success

  • This change this change takes courage

  • It takes courage to stand up and break down the aspects of your life that you know is holding you back

  • Let your progress be idolized let it speak for itself

  • Average becomes sort of like this slow asphyxiation

  • It's almost like an anesthetic and that overtime would become kind of immune and dulled to the average that we're becoming

  • I know this is true. At least for me. You probably experienced it yourself, too

  • And so over time we sort of minimize where we're at in other words

  • I'm a little pudgy instead of being know your fat ass, right, you know

  • You don't magnify the degree to which the pain ought to be affecting you and so really what he means on

  • That is listen, you're gonna get out of your life what you'll accept that's really difficult for people

  • I think to understand is look what you think you're worth and what you're gonna tolerate is

  • absolutely what you're gonna bring into your life and what the outward part of your life is gonna look like and so I

  • live by that like I let myself sort of feel the pain and the difficulty of

  • Being not where I want to be in whatever that areas were those would be my spirituality my relationships my money

  • I let myself feel that pain because as you know, there's two motivators, right?

  • There's the gaining of pleasure right wanting to go get something chasing the dream

  • But then there's the avoidance of pain and for a lot of champions. That's a pretty big driving force for them

  • And so at least for me, I I leveraged both of those things on me to get myself to take action

  • one of the reasons I'm relatively fit is not just

  • Peak State. I have an uncle and my family that died at 50 years old of a heart attacks my godfather

  • My dad's only brother. I kind of resemble him and I look like a plan

  • So on the way back from his funeral my reticular activating art attacks on the TV screen on the airplane

  • I listen to music is the Oprah Winfrey Show. She's going through a new heart scan

  • I've unplugged my headphones plug into this airplane one. I scheduled it

  • I went in I had a world-class doctor who understood reasons and levers instead of just prescribing coolant. Only coach

  • Well you need to do this you need to do this like doctors do it take his pill take this he understood leverage and reasons

  • What you do is to take the scan, then you go to lunch you come back. I took the scan

  • I went those

  • I had a burrito I

  • came back, and I'm in the LA when I walk in I sit down the doctor comes up and he says

  • Oh my I can't believe these arteries are in that young body

  • Got my attention we walk back in we sit down

  • He could still go you need

  • Crestor eat clean get out of here is know what an average doctor does right No wired me with huge reasons

  • He goes, let me ask you a question

  • I heard your wife's pregnant you have I said

  • I have a son and he says do you want to be there when he graduates from high school?

  • To be there for that day. I said, yes, sir. Yeah, he goes your wife's pregnant. What do you have it?

  • I said a daughter. This is where you get a dad. He goes she was six months pregnant

  • He goes do you um, would you like to walk her down the aisle on her wedding day?

  • Are you okay that it's some other man?

  • I

  • Went what the

  • Zahn this skin right like and he goes I want to be very clear with you if you keep going down the road you're going

  • There'll be some other man with your son at graduation high school and a strangers walking your daughter down the aisle

  • that's not even born yet on her wedding day and I went to him and he goes

  • But if you do exactly what I tell you to do you'll be there

  • And so to this day brother, there are mornings when I wake up not every morning. I don't want to go to the gym

  • I go Bella's wedding

  • Bella's wedding

  • Bella's wedding so my

  • Standards are high because of my big old reasons

  • Other dudes may miss the gym that day cuz they're not gonna miss their daughter's wedding if they don't go, but I've convinced myself

  • I will get emotional

  • I've convinced myself on this my daughter's wedding

  • so I will get my ass out of bed at 4 o'clock in the morning and I will get to that gym because my

  • Reasons are bigger. So my standards are higher. So that's what I think

  • Causes us to have great standards as huge reasons

  • When you're inspired by something or someone in your life

  • You feel the magic?

  • Now's the time to be the magic

  • What are you going to do?

  • Are you going to let the Masters inspire you to feel it?

  • Or are you going to strive to be a master?

  • It's your choice the magic is waiting not only for you just a feeling but so be it

  • Nobody can take this away

  • In your life you can't escape

  • Anything that goes along with life, you know, we are not immune to problems

  • drama trauma the tragedy, you know we all

  • Here as human beings so, you know when you're going through some sort of difficulties, you know

  • First fighting or whatever that difficulty may be, you know

  • You know we do with within your power in terms of how to start slowly, you know, get yourself out of that situation

  • and you believe you'd be optimistic about you know being

  • negative about a situation stand in that place it never helps, you know, it's nothing wrong with

  • Understanding that place feeling bad about it looking at it for what it is, but don't stay there

  • you've got to get back on that other side and start looking at the

  • resolved

  • resolution of how can I get back to feeling good and feeling

  • Prosperous again to where I'm not dealing with this obstacle

  • Words are very powerful

  • Very powerful. So the thing is about getting within yourself and understand who you are to kind of you know

  • What off those negative comments that's coming towards my virtually always prepared

  • you know, you have to go for those things in order to see it in light of the

  • Light at the end of the tunnel, you know

  • I don't think anything is going to just be like this throughout your life and then you have to go through that difficult overcome obstacle

  • Because it's a testament of your character of who you are in high gear to deal with certain things

  • You know to get yourself back on it playing field

  • Everything happened for a reason no regrets all the negative things that happened

  • I'm thankful for it because I learned hopefully I learned from those situations and all the positive things. I'm humbly

  • grateful that those was able to take place and

  • Still striving to be the best I can be and you know going forward people didn't care at some kid to be the best

  • They could be

  • You know anything is possible positive thinking is also translating them, you know, so

  • When you have something that's

  • Positive up there you can be you know the best you can be

  • You know any negative out there and you could bring down the worst person

  • Misery loves company

  • Misery loves company. So we are not debbie down as we more uplifters

  • You know, we always no matter what the situation with the situation is. We're gonna try to look for the outcome the better of that

  • situation, you know

  • If we can't find a resolution to get out of it, you know

  • We're gonna keep on searching the continue to try to find a resolution to get out of because that's what you do

  • You know, that's how you get to the bottom of that's how you get to the facts of Nass

  • Are you willing to breath are you willing to be the warrior?

  • Bring your shield bring your sword stand up and fight

  • Today will be the day where you can take control take control of your power

  • Become this power because now is the time to fight you're a warrior

  • Warriors don't give up and they don't back down

  • Become the warrior

  • Transform your life transform yourself head out into battle step on to the battlefield

  • Use your weapons to fight through this pain fight through the rejection

  • learn from the bruises the blood scars because this time you can rise to become the

  • Step on to the Plainfield because now is the time to change

  • Now is the time to rise with the crown on your head?

  • You know you want to be a little bit better in some way tomorrow than you are today

  • But it's not gonna be in a linear path again these go through cycles of stress and recovery

  • So it's just kind of being able to surf the flow of that and know

  • Again, it really comes down to balance

  • so it's the

  • Practices that you need to know what to do for sure and then you need to know how to apply those things in

  • the right way, so

  • When you when to push and when to take the pressure off the gas as well

  • And I think that's really understanding that

  • So part of it is the knowledge and then part of it is the follow-through and then part of it is the discipline to know

  • not only when you need to go, but when you need to rest, I

  • Think it's important to really trust that what you're doing is going to work

  • What's a day that makes life awesome and and makes you again a little bit better tomorrow from having done it today

  • You have to really do the work like you have to back it with hard work

  • You know any of you ask Conor McGregor like what's the secret to his success hard work hard work hard work

  • I don't know if he actually worked harder than anybody but he believes he does, you know

  • he has no doubts in his mind that he's actually working harder and and that's I think important so

  • Really making sure that you really do your best to get the goods, you know

  • And to in to practice that and go out there and put yourself out there and then on the other side

  • What is the thing? What is the antagonist of belief? Well, the antagonist of belief is fear, you know fear is a

  • Belief that something negative is going to happen rather than something positive is going to happen

  • So it's like that's on the other side. You're almost believing in your failure right rather than believing in your success

  • so you have to go attack and collapse these different fears and part of that is going to be sucking out the

  • The penalty if if you fail right because like a lot of the fear comes because we're afraid that we're gonna judge ourselves

  • Harshly or whatever so you got to realize like there is no such thing as failure. There's just learning right?

  • So you collapse the penalty for failure so that collapses the fear which allows you to believe even more

  • So that's one way to do it

  • And the other way is to just look at fear itself and play out the different scenarios know that you're gonna be fine

  • again

  • Forgive yourself always and and really also just attack fear wherever you see it

  • Even when it's trivial even when it's some kind of we were just before the before we got on here

  • We talked about the fear of the number 13 true God trick a phobia

  • Like if you're afraid of 13, you know what you need to do. You put 13s all of you in house you

  • Know you need to like sit in Thirteen's you need to go to the 13th demand to be on the 13th floor of every hotel

  • in every airplane because you got to get over that shit because that is telling

  • yourself that there's something

  • Irrational that should control you and if you believe there's something that's irrational that should control you that will apply

  • Universally, so wherever you find fear specifically that's out of balance with actual danger

  • Like I'm not saying touch a hot stove or put your hand in a rattlesnake cage like there's danger there. That's not fear, but 13

  • No danger, you know that's not real

  • so go collapse that the fear of crickets like I have a fear of like whatever it is collapse fear wherever you see it and

  • That specific collapse will help with the universal collapses

  • You just got to understand the only thing that you're responsible for is your best

  • But he can't do better than your best. You just do your best and if you try to obsess too much

  • You're not doing your best. You're gonna be paralyzed, right?

  • So you have to get as much information as you can make the most educated choice

  • make sure that you're not choosing based on ego or emotion or you know greed or

  • These other forces that delude you and prevent you from thinking clearly

  • But if you do your best and you fail like what do you do beat yourself up for that?

  • Like that doesn't make any sense if you're doing your best if you're really laying it out there

  • There's nothing nothing more you can do and and that's I think that that's really the key is just to constantly

  • Rest and rely on that fact that I'm just I'm doing my best and there's nothing nothing more than that

  • You know, you have to really appreciate where you are in the journey and say yeah where you are is awesome

  • But you could be better cuz that's the the process is becoming better, right?

  • so it's not it's not judging it externally by any other criteria because every step is good, but the

  • process of striving for more in a process to really

  • unfailing who you are to an even greater degree to getting

  • Cleaner and clearer and more full and more robust and the best version of yourself like that process is a beautiful process

  • I think it's one of the reasons why we're here it feels the best

  • It feels the best to be continuing on the path

  • But that doesn't mean that you look forward to a point in the past say when I get there

  • I'll love myself when I get there. I'll I made it like love yourself where you are wherever you are. That's awesome

  • Let's still strive for more because the striving is the journey. It's always the striving

  • If we were able to do like even a fraction of the things we know we should we would all be badasses, you know

  • But there's so many things you talk to me. Yeah, I should be doing that

  • Yeah, I should be doing I know I should be I should be meditating

  • Yeah, I know I should be doing this. I should be eating better

  • I should be doing this and we all know what we want to do to be the best version of ourselves

  • But for whatever reason we don't do it, you know, and there's a lot of reasons why but we're not doing it

  • and so the ability to choose and

  • Actually decide what you're going to do to be the not well to be the art and say oh
