  • I believed that I was stupid and not talented.

  • And I felt like a total and abject failure.

  • So, I used to be sixty pounds heavier.

  • And I grew up in a morbidly obese family.

  • And I really wanted to escape that fate but I couldn't see any way to do it.

  • All that I had was this crushing sense of being adrift at sea and not knowing how to get back to shore.

  • I could see the failure, I could see that I had no plan, that I no longer knew how I was gonna get where I wanted to go.

  • And I didn't believe that those were things I could change about myself.

  • They felt like a prison sentence or if I am honest it felt like a death sentence.

  • And it was coming to the realization that I wasn't talented.

  • That really forced me to look for a new mindset that would allow me to escape depression because I was coming to the world with my hand out, and as long as I was coming to the world with my hand out, I was at the mercy of other people.

  • I wanted to take control.

  • I was gonna have to take control of the resources and in that was a desire to find another way to think about it.

  • Another way to think about myself, another way to think about talent, another way literally to think about everything.

  • And I remember saying to myself: listen pussy, stop asking yourself what the least you need to do is and start asking yourself how much you can bear.

  • I began to develop a growth mindset.

  • I needed to believe that by working really hard that I can get better at anything.

  • If that were true, then I just needed to buckle down.

  • I needed to practice, I needed to get good, I needed to do the reps, I needed to put in the effort, I needed to be willing to break myself in half to get so good that people couldn't ignore me.

  • The way to do that: act. That's it. You need to get out there and do something.

  • Right now, today. Literally stop this f***ing video.

  • And whatever it is, if you already have a passion, you are so much farther ahead than the vast majority of human kind.

  • If you know what that thing is, get out and act.

  • And by the way, if you don't know what it is, act, it's the only way you are gonna find out counterstep.

  • Go try things, it is in the process of action that you are going to learn the things you need to learn.

  • But if you have been thinking about starting a business, f***ing start it.

  • Like actually build the product right now. Today.

  • You will learn more, infinitely more in the process of trying to create it and make it real than you ever will by watching videos, by thinking, by meditating , by taking notes.

  • None of it compares.

  • It's not even in the same universe. It is just going and doing it.

  • One step is better than a hundred hours of quantification.

  • Running a hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction is better than standing still.

  • You'll learn something. So get rid of this notion that you are gonna end the day with a perfect record.

  • You're gonna fail, you're f**k up, you are gonna try a thousand things, and 999 of them are not gonna work.

  • But whatever you want, really don't ask yourself who you are today, ask only, "Who do you want to become?"

  • And then are you willing to pay the price to get there?

  • Like people are convinced that they shouldn't act until they have it all figured out.

  • F**k that! You should act right now today, no matter how chaotic your vision, no matter how chaotic your life, no matter how much you have going on or you already working 2 jobs , 3 jobs doesn't matter.

  • Take an action today or you never will!

I believed that I was stupid and not talented.
