You have no time to let fear, doubt, failure, quit, negative thoughts or give up enter into your mentor. So you have massive potential. So from the moment you open your eyes in the morning your mindset has to be win. Meaning winning that particular morning and carrying that winner's mentality with you as you enter your classroom. So what the person to the left of you is pessimistic? So what the person to the right of you is zoned out? You. Yes you! Can only be concerned with staying locked in because you refuse to let the aura of your classmates or classroom enter into your mental space. See this race is won by the one that can distance him or herself from the rest of the pack, and those are facts, so I need you to realize that there will be bad days. There will be times that you feel like you have no earthly idea what your teacher or professor is talking about but what you will never, ever do is throw a pity party. What you will never ever do is tap out, what you will never ever do is concede and throw in the towel. What you will do, is knock on his or her door, and say listen. I only have one option and that is success in your class but right now, I'm confused about the lesson you taught today and I need clarity and I need it now. I guarantee, that if you are passionate about wanting to achieve success in that class, he or she will bend over backwards to help you. But if you settle for mediocrity and never say anything you are setting yourself up to fail and failure my friend, is not in your DNA. I promise. You're not the first person to question whether or not they have what it takes to achieve at a high level. I promise you're not the first person to feel like they are underperforming. I promise you are not the first person to feel like their brain is about to explode. Listen to me those that can push through no matter what storms arise are in the small minority, that small percentile of those that ultimately break through and make their goals and dreams a reality. So the reality is this. You were blown with everything you need to pass every class with flying colors, you were born with everything you need to overcome the anxiety that may pop up from time to time on a mission to derail your lifelong hopes, dreams and aspirations. See my favorite acronym is HWPO and just in case you forget, or just in case you don't know, that means Hard Work Pays Off. So winners like us never lose focus and we're horrified and petrified whenever someone tries to tell us to take the easy route because we already know there is no easy route because if it were easy everyone would do it. So we avoid that ignorance and get back to our grind of studying harder than we've ever studied before because we understand that you get out of it what you put into it. So we pour our heart and soul into our homework, we pour our heart and soul into studying for exams that way we sleep like a baby because we know in our heart of hearts that we have put every ounce of our being into our work and therefore, success is a foregone conclusion. Listen to me. What if, after all of the hard work, after all of the studying, after all of the blood, sweat, and tears, you still fail? I need you to believe and never forget this. You never fail, you never lose, you only learn. See, life will knock the mess out of you when you least expect it. It's part of the process. See that's when you have to tell yourself, because of this setback, I'm stronger because of this setback, I'm wiser, because of this setback, I'm smarter and because of this setback, I'm hungrier than ever! So I say all of this, as a friendly reminder. You got this. You were born to be spectacular! So I need you to jump over the obstacles, I need you you to go around the pitfalls and I need you to push through the adversity because that dormant volcano of success that's living inside of you, it's just waiting for you to grant permission for it to erupt.
