If you are going to live for something, it’s not going to be easy.
You’re not going to wake up one day and all of a sudden be living out your dream.
It’s going to take work. It’s going to take disappointment. It’s going to take plenty of failure.
It’s going to take you flipping the bird to people who are going to tell you that you can’t do it.
It will never be easy.
If you have dreams, but no backbone, you better find one.
Somehow deep down inside you have to convince yourself that whatever it is that you are going to pursue will be worth it. Because it won’t be to anybody else. Nobody will understand why you choose to do what you do. You don’t owe them an explanation.
So if you’re not convinced, you may as well give up now.
The reason there aren’t a ton of people out there who are the BEST is because there are few willing to put in the time. the effort. the sweat.
They have questioned their sanity, their worth, the point. you should too.
If you’re not, your dreams probably aren’t big enough.
But maybe you’re ok with life being easy, coasting and just getting to the end.
If you’re like me, you’re probably not.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably had moments where your heart was shattered, your ship sank and your hopes were crushed. Most of us have. What separates the elite from others is a deep down obsession to continue the torture. Because they believe there is something greater.
You can’t ignore it. It wakes you up at night. Pulls you out of bed in the early morning.
Brokenness is necessary. Rebuilding yourself is necessary. Restoration reminds us that we can continue after destruction.
Being complacent, stagnant, mediocre; too many are already great at that. Be different.
Settling is a time suck and there is no place for it in history makers.
If you question yourself, good. At least you are thinking.
If you don’t even know what I’m talking about, wake up. Stop drifting through life. You are wasting it.
Don’t tell me you can’t. Plenty have and continue to do so.
That which you believe, you will achieve. So if you believe you suck, you will.
If you believe you will change the world and have something to contribute, you will find a way.
But, again, it won’t be easy.
Commit now to doing whatever it takes.
Get up. Make a plan. Do.
We need you.
