I have compressed years of trials and errors, into easy to consume episodes, to take you from where you are now, to where you want to be.
So what I wanted to talk to you about is a quote that I saw today, and I think it's a very beautiful quote. And it's symptomatic of something that everybody does. Right. I do it as well. And some people suffer more than others about it.
So the quote says, “I'm not where I want to be, but I'm proud that I'm not where I used to be”, OK? And this is so powerful. It is it is really powerful because, you know, so for example, right now I know a person who's really struggling with this notion of, well, I haven't accomplished anything in my life where I am.
And it's basically hurting that person really, really bad, you know, like the self-confidence and stuff like, oh, I suck. I haven't been able to do this. I haven't been able to do that, and that's one thing that I'm really trying to get this person to realize is that when you're climbing a mountain like three thousand meters high. So let's say you're halfway and you still have one point five thousand meters to go. It sucks.
You're bruised and battered, right. You're like, man, how am I going to get there? Right. Still one point five thousand meters. You look at it and then you're depressed. What if you did something, you just change your perspective for one second and instead of looking up, you just look down and you realize that, wow, you know what? I was at level zero before and now I'm at level one point five thousand, OK?
Are you a complete failure?
We're only looking at oh, my objective is three thousand. I failed. I suck. I'm just here. I'm just there. And then you're depressed. But, dude, do you know how much you've been able to accomplish by getting halfway there? It's a lot, right?
You used to be at level zero and now you're way higher. So changing this perspective will help you a lot in terms of a lot of the things that you have to do and a lot of the success that you have is also based on the motivation that you have. Right.
If you do have the motivation and the drive to go and do stuff, this is when you put in the action and then the actions will turn to results, then results will turn into certainty.
And so motivation is huge. And if you're always looking at the back side of things like I haven't done that. I'm still not there and stuff. Yeah. I mean, your motivation is obviously going to suffer from it.
Whereas if you're looking at it from the other perspective, like, oh, man, look at what I've been able to do. This is motivating you. So it is actually pushing you. You are not forcing yourself and finding some internal battle of, oh, should I keep going or not or something.
This thing is driving you. Look what I've been able to do. Let me do more. You know, and it's a very basic change of perspective and it's a very simple thing to do.
