You may not know this, but I do a lot of calls.
That being said, I had a call this weekend with my group and they told me, “You need to post that rant at the end”. So I’m just following directions.
If You Want to Make Changes in your life
Be Passionate, Take Responsibility – Own It! (there’s no shortcut)
If you’re a man, a woman or something in between and you want your life to get better, I hate to break it to you, there’s no hack. It is pretty simple, you’re going to have to be ready for the challenge of change if you’re going to want to be on that ride. Sure…there might be some tools you can use to help yourself out, but at some point you’re going to have to bust some ass, get passionate about it and make your life yours!
There is no doubt, the market that is selling you change sells you on it either being Easy and Effortless, or Being some Weekend Warrior is concerned on how to make money better than it is about changing you. The bottom line is, if you want to really make a difference in your life you’re going to need to be able to ‘do it yourself’ at some of the hardest times (not all the time, but you need to be willing to Own it!). There is no one I know, who I actually respect, that was able to bypass hard work, doubt, fear and risk, to reach where they’re at. You need to know that there are going to be times where you will fail, feel like you want to give up and the only will be You.
Ask yourself – Am I willing to be me through this life or should I give up?
The answer (if you want true change in your life) needs to be ‘I am willing to be me’.
You can only take the easy road so long. Sooner or later you’re going to have to Own It. This is something I have always believed in and promoted. Although it isn’t the greatest sales technique, when it comes to anything…
- Sex Life
You can’t be a guy taking a shortcut. You’re going to need to look at yourself. You’re going to need to start going through what’s working and what’s not and wake the fuck up. I can’t tell you how many times in my life it has come down to this. Whether it is with my personal life, my health, my finances or just my general lifestyle, I could have every advantage you could imagine – money, access, situation, friends in high places and if I am not invested personally, I ain’t making any progress.
Just a thought…
If you’re not happy, why not?
If you’re not living the life you want, why not?
In you’re not moving in the right direction, what now?
Start answering those questions, honestly, and then commit to getting to where you need to be. If you need help, get some. But know that it’s up to you to change. Fuck needing a hero, someone to do it for you, or some BullShit inspiration. Work for it and give yourself the respect you deserve! If you start there you’re already taking some steps in the right direction.
