99% of people are not willing to do what it takes to make their dreams come true.
Marines have a saying everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die the center of bringing any dream into fruition is self-discipline.
Something as simple as food and eating it’s not about your body as much as it is about your mind it’s getting command of your mind to be able to choose actions that are in your own best interest.
Every day we are choosing Shh that’s not in our own best interest, so if the world is attacking you and the world wants to fight you and the world’s trying to hold you down so you’re gonna kick yourself in the balls.
You will stop yourself from getting what you dream and I think the word discipline has kind of gotten a bad name.
We think about it in terms of punishment I’m not talking about discipline in that way I’m talking about discipline in the sense that you forego immediate pleasure
for the exchange of long-term self-respect.
I believe that self-discipline is the definition of self-love that when you say that you love yourself that means that you have behavior towards yourself that is loving.
Self-discipline is the center of all material success you cannot win the war against the world if you can’t win the war against your own mind.
Self-love is when you say to yourself man look I know you and that girl got a real connection I know y’all vibe but yes your girl’s cousin.
So I love you too much to let you do that it’s like you say to yourself a man look, I know you want to eat that pizza and it’ll be really good.
You know but I can’t let you eat that man cuz if you eat that pizza you’re gonna feel like you know.
I love you too much to let you eat that.
Self-love is a look I know you got a a test on Monday you know and I know you really want to go out with your friends and Saturday night you want to go out but if you fail that test you’re not gonna feel good about yourself.
You know I just I love you too much to let you go out tonight self-discipline is self-love if you wanna be happy you have to love yourself.
Which means you have to discipline your behavior. The road sustained happiness is through disciplining your behavior we tend to base our self-esteem on what other people think and that’s not really self-esteem.
Self-esteem suppose to be how we feel about ourselves and I was just saying how dangerous it is to allow other people to determine how you’re going to feel about you and it’s kind of like looking into a broken mirror.
You’re gonna look in a broken mirror and then change your face to try to look good in this defiled busted broken mirror and it’s just other people’s opinions there’s a way to determine how we feel about our selves it doesn’t matter whose fault it is that something is broken if it’s your responsibility to fix it.
For example is it’s not somebody’s fault if their father was an abusive alcoholic, but it’s for damn sure their responsibility to figure out how they’re not gonna do.
Try to make a life out of it it’s not your fault if your partner cheated and ruined your marriage but it is for damn sure your responsibility to figure out how to take that pain and how to overcome that and build a happy life for yourself.
Fault and responsibility do not go together it sucks but they don’t when something is somebody’s fault we want them to suffer we want them punished we want them to pay we want it to be their responsibility to fix it.
But that’s that’s not how it works especially when it’s your heart your heart your life your happiness is your responsibility and your responsibility alone as long as we’re pointing the finger and stuck in whose fault.
Something is we’re jammed and trapped into victim mode when you’re in victim mode you’re stuck in suffering.
The road to power is in taking responsibility for your heart your life your happiness.
Its your responsibility and your responsibility alone do you make a person smile you can make a person feel good you can make a person laugh but whether or not a person is happy is deeply and totally and utterly out of your control.
The prerequisite for spending time with any person is that they nourish and inspire you they feed your flame look at your last five text messages are those people feeding your flames or does it put your fire out.
Put your phone down for just a second and look around look to the people around you are those people throwing logs on your fire or they pissing on it.
I want my life I want my work my family I wanted it to mean something and it’s like it has if you are not making someone else’s life better.
Than you’re wasting your time the separation of talent and skill is one of the the the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel.
Who have dreams that want to do things talent you have natural skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft.
You don’t try to build a wall you don’t set out to build a wall you don’t say I’m the biggest baddest greatest wall that’s ever been built you don’t start there.
You say I’m gonna lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid there will not be one brick on the face of the earth that’s gonna be way better than this brick that I’m gonna lay.
In this next 10 minutes and you do that every single day so yeah and soon you have a wall and I think psychologically the advantage that that gives me over over a lot of people that I have been in competition with in different situations.
Is it’s difficult to take the first step when you look at how big the task the definition of Who I am is very clear to me and it also redefines who I want to be.
In that I know for a fact that I’m stronger than I thought I was you know you can’t help but ask yourself the question what would I do if I was in Mohammed Eileen shoes.
I’m motivated by fear I hate scared abuse on and I think what developed was the attitude that I started attacking things.
I was scared why were you scared in your bed the night before why did you what do you need that fear for just don’t go why are you scared in your bed 16 hours before you jump.
Why are you scared in the car why could you not enjoy breakfast fear is fear of what you’re nowhere near the airplane if we think up to the stepping out there’s actually no reason to be scared
It only just ruins your day you’re you don’t have to jump and then in that moment all of a sudden where you should be terrified is the most blissful experience of your life and God place the best things in life on the other side of terror
