There is nothing as powerful as a changed mind. You can change your hair, your clothing, your spouse, your residence… but if you don’t change your mind the same experience will perpetuate itself over and over again. Because everything outwardly changed, but nothing inwardly changed.
If you want something out of life, if you want to change yourself, if you want to acquire something, if there’s some goal that you want to reach. Change your behaviors, overcome negative habits! It’s challenging. It’s hard. Most people go through life never discovering what their talents are, most people never develop their talents. The only thing that’s going to make you happy my friend in this year, or any other… is to step up, it’s to raise the standard, it’s to discover what you’re capable of and feel that incredible power of pushing through whatever is holding you back and get to the other side of more of your true self that’s what this life’s all about.
When you step into your fears and continue to push yourself to go on something happens for you. If you look at somebody who’s really successful, and you think, wow…I mean they’re so amazing, they’re such a genius. You got to dig underneath, and you got to remember this: people are rewarded in public for what they’ve practiced for years in private. If you don’t develop the courage, to do that which has been given you to do and you spend a lot of time going around trying to convince other people, and trying to get their approval what will happen is…that you will lose your nerve and other people will convince you that what you are doing doesn’t have any value, and you’ll give up on your dream how much time do you have left? How much time do you have left? When you start thinking about that, we don’t know! Most of us don’t use what we have brought into the Universe. Stop wasting valuable time! If you want something, you have got to be RELENTLESS, you’ve got to learn how to become resourceful, you’ve got to learn how to become creative.
The power to hold on in spite of everything, the power to endure this is the WINNER’s quality. The hunger, the ability to face defeat again and again, without giving up! This is a WINNER’s quality. What this POWER is, I cannot say. All i know is that it exists…and it becomes available only when a man or woman is in that STATE OF MIND in which he or she knows exactly what he or she wants and is fully DETERMINED not to quit until they find it. There’s greatness in you and you’ve got to learn how to tune out the critics outside and the critic inside. Instead say: I’m gonna harness my will and I’m not gonna let anything stop me. I want this. I deserve this.
Most people give up on themselves easily. You know the human spirit is powerful? There’s nothing this powerful. It’s hard to kill the human spirit. You are unstoppable! Live your life with passion and with some drive! Most of us go through life with our brakes on, holding back. Decide that you’re going to push yourself. You’ve got to focus on you and as you convince you, as you sell yourself, EVERY DAY, EVERY DAY, EVERY DAY! you will begin to see a difference in the things that you’re doing. Selling yourself on your ability to perform a job, to achieve a certain objective. Telling yourself every day: Here I go again and I’ve got what it takes. This is MY DAY and NOTHING out here is going to stop me!
