No matter how many years you've lived up till now, no matter how many years you have yet to live, no matter how Maney got you've made in your life in the time you've had on this planet, no matter matter how much of that time wasted over and over and over right now is the moment you have. That's all you've got right now. As you're watching me, you should be here now. Where are you? Where are you right now? Because most people can't concentrate on anything longer than 30 seconds. And I hope I hope I hope you could be honest with me and tell me that you're looking right at me right now. You realize that I'm giving my total undivided attention because I want your mindset about yourself and about the world at large change. Right now, I'm gonna start with two things most people will say about virtues. Virtues being those things that you put in action that lead to positive good consequences. Vices being those things you do that lead to bad and negative consequences. Most people will say about virtues that the most important virtue. Tohave is courage that all the other virtues will follow from courage or the most important virtue is integrity, honesty or perseverance. Whichever one they choose is the most important one. They say that's the first one. You do that one, you practice that one. You put that one in the action, all the other ones will follow. I disagree. The most important virtue that you need tohave it play that you need to have buried deep inside of you and it needs to be operating in its optimal levels all the time. 24 7 is your belief your belief in yourself Because if you don't believe first that who you are this being that you are the human being you are your life here on this planet is of a value is of a value in and of itself worth something. Then those other virtues won't mean anything to you at all. They won't have any worthiness to you at all, even if you happen to stumble by mistake or by accident, across putting them to the action once in a while. The first thing, the first virtue you need tohave operating at 100% is your belief in yourself. I'm the rise and shine again. But you're getting another day. Another opportunity to do something great in this great life that you came here to live Be a real shame if you do. I am here today to interrupt your regularly scheduled programming with the truth bulletin. When I say regularly scheduled programming, I don't mean your Super Bowl festivities. E mean your life. Yesterday was a day for letting loose kicking back, getting wild and crazy many different ways for many of you. But today is another day toe Wake up and again smell reality to take your head out of your day dreaming ass and realize your life. Israel It's not a fantasy. It's time to quit indulging in activities and behaviors that only make you look like an idiot and only turn you into a fat ass. Unless you've got some companion, you know where you can afford to have a self motivator? A a motivation, coach Besides you, 24 hours a day to just keep you jacked up and inspired and energetic about making the right choices, you're gonna have to do it yourself. You may not get it from the crowd of people that you hang with people that you consider your friends. Yeah. What are you? You're an animal. You're an animal is created by a creator. And you have a unique set of skills and tools and Billy's and powers that makes you more powerful than any other creation or being or an animal on this planet. You have your mind. Your mind gives you a greater power than any other animal has been created. And your potential in, like, wise there it begins and ends there. What you will do in your life, where you will go in your life is how much you believe in the power of this thing. Here there are no limits on what you can learn and know with your mind on what you can achieve, how far you can push it. What kind of demands could be placed on it. What kind of challenges? You could rise up to you if you will only engage the power of your mind. E. A lot of people tend to think that e never had a problem or I never have any temptation for other stuff. I dio. But I look at the choices I have before me, like when it comes to food. And I asked myself, What price am I gonna pay? And when I do, indulge or have indulge, I don't like the price that I pay but many of you because you write me a correspond with me. You have made a habit out of making the wrong choices when it comes to food needing habits, and you have gotten to a place where you believe it doesn't matter anymore. And that's what I want to call these mentoring minutes. I want to call it. It does matter. It does matter. It always matters all the time. But you're surrounded by other people who also have convinced themselves that it doesn't matter. I mean, you work in a place. You go with a group of people to a regular lunch spot, you all go in. Um, probably in a lot of your casual conversation. Most of you talk about how you don't like the way you feel all the time. That is, you're getting older. You feel like you don't have the same energy that you used to have when you were younger. You don't like the way you fit in your clothes. It's because you've made that all habit a bad habit, and you can turn it around and you can develop good habits. But you're gonna have to take small steps and you gotta start now. You have to start now with the choices that you make in most generally, you're gonna have to motivate yourself. That's just the way it is. That's why it's called self motivation. But if you don't engage intensity or passion in your life, then you are living your life to its fullest intensity. Passion for something will outdo will win out over knowledge, skills, talent, natural talent, natural gifts every single time. Not that that stuff is not important. But there are many examples throughout history of people simply because they were intense, intense and an unusual sometimes off putting away, aggressive, assertive, determined to do what they had in their mind to do. They make monuments to those people, and those are the people that inspired me not because I have any idea inside of me whatsoever that I'm gonna have a monument built for me. But I want to get the most out of my life, and if you can't summons up the energy excitement, the enthusiasm for something. Then you're just your life. Every day is gonna be a drag toe. Wake up to when you crawl out from underneath the covers every morning and you sit on the edge of the bed. You have a choice before you weigh. Didn't make the world the way it iss. It's filled with alternatives. Boys will be until we aren't here anymore. It will always be alternatives. There always be the good. There always be the bad. There always be the beautiful. There always be the ugly. There'll always be the, uh, excellent. And there will always be the incompetent. There will always be what is wonderful, what is horrible. We didn't make the rules of the world so fighting against that. That fact that axiomatic truth that the world is created of alternative is just a waste of energy. But spending your energy on your choices that you make every day is where the secret lies. But it isn't just about making PR's in the weight room. It's about living a strong life, and you start with power and self belief in that you are a unique individual. This dump. It makes you different from the other six billion people on this planet. And it stands for something. It's not for nothing. And you need to believe that with that you are every cell of your body needs toe. Believe that that you are one of a kind that you are an original on that you will not apologize for at all the line in stops right now, the line due to yourself every day when you push back against the greatness that wants to come out of you. From now on, you do not give the benefit of the doubt to the rest of the world and all the other people on this planet. You take your head out of the world's ass, you start thinking for yourself, and you realize that not everybody on this planet wants to be a leader. Not everybody on this planet wants to do something great in their lives. Like you feel that voice inside of you urging you on to do. No, you stop. You don't apologize anymore for this greatness that lives in you. This desire you have wanna bring it alive no more, no more at all. The world needs leaders and needs you. And that's why you're here. That's why you stepped up to the edge of the cliff. You weren't afraid. And you're jumping off in free fall without a parachute, and you're gonna figure things out on the way down. That's what we're gonna do here at War University. From here on out, stop lying to yourself. Yeah.
