Everything that you do is habit-forming.
And, that includes hitting the snooze button, sitting on the couch and eating donuts.
It’s all habit-forming. You know what else is habit-forming? Discipline
Setting the alarm and getting up and working out.
It’s never too late to form some disciplined habits.
You are not where you wanna be, not because you need any more gifts, you don’t need nothing else!
All you need is to discipline yourself. You need to learn to tell yourself no!
But, you can’t tell yourself to quit. You gotta get to a point where you’re disciplined. You need to learn to check yourself. And, I want you to say the reason I’m not at amazing yet, is becauseI hit the snooze button, that’s why I’m not amazing right now, but I CAN BE!
The reason why I’m not amazing right now is ’cause I couldn’t get up early enough,’cause I told myself I’m not an early person. I’m not amazing because I’m not doingwhat I’m supposed to be doing to be amazing. Your mind is a weapon, and you’ve got to begin to use it and control it as one!
Most people are out of control with their mind, they don’t point it at something,they let the world point it and they misfire all the time.
You have control over your mind, you just have to assert it. You have to decide that you are going to be in control. That you are going to do what you want to do.
Weakness doesn’t get a vote. Laziness doesn’t get a vote. Everyone wants some life hack that eliminates the need to do the work, but that does not exist. No, it’s just wishful thinking!!!
You have to do the work. You’ve got to hold the line. You’ve got to make it happen. What could you be if you worked as hard as you could? What could you be if you imposed real discipline in your life? I say you crank up the volume on that voice and conquer yourself.
Crank up the volume on that question, max it out. And thengo get some. You haveto master the monotonous.
It’s the boring sh*t. It’s the everyday sh*t. It’s the regular sh*t It’s the sh*t that you do every day that 99% of you motherf*ckers think doesn’t matter.
They look at it like you do a few things, “I f*cking ate right for 3 days, why am I not a f*cking fitness model?” “I did my tasks that I needed to do,I sent 5 emails, I called 10 people, why am I not running a 10 million dollar company? “Because they don’t understand what mastering the monotonous means. It means doing the sh*t that most people are too f*cking undisciplined to do, day in and day out, with perfection. Doing it better than everybody else. Doing it to the best of your ability.
You have to remind yourself that these little things that you do are going to lead to the big things.
Are you going to do your workout or are you not? Are you going to do your cardio or are you not? Go look yourself in the mirror and I want you to vow to be amazing, I want you to vow that there are no more excuses, from this day forward, I’m not just gonna be getting pumped up, I’m not just gonna be fired up, I’m about to start applying. Make a commitment to yourself today, vow to yourself today that you will make whatever sacrifice, that you will pay whatever it takes, that you will do whatever you have to do to be amazing.
It is us. We have to train, we have to prepare, we have to harden ourselves through suffering, and while it hurts and it does hurt, it is that discipline that will ultimately bring us freedom.
Conquer your mind, Conquer your world.
Now, over to YOU!
