There will never be a point in your life where there's a right time to do a great thing. If you're waiting for that perfect, perfect moment...perfect timing... It's not going to happen. You know what you have to do? You have to create the perfect time and the perfect opportunity and the perfect situation.
A lot of people become comfortable. They stop growing. They stop wanting anything. They become satisfied. People getting ready to go to jobs that they don't like...jobs that are making them sick. You see, when you're not pursuing your goal, you are literally committing spiritual suicide. When you have some goal out here that you're stretching for...and you're reaching for...that takes you out of your comfort zone... You will find out some talents and abilities you have that you didn't know you have. When the messenger of misery visits you, what are you going to do? What will keep you in the game?
There are things that you think that you'll never need to know....that you may only need to know one time in your life but that could save your life because you had that knowledge.
Unless you attempt to do something beyond that you've already mastered, you will never grow. What is it that you've looked at, at some point in time, and you decided that you couldn't do it? That you talk yourself out of it?
You're waiting on your next door neighbor to make it happen for you, it may not happen. If you're waiting on your mother, or your father, they may be so ancient in their thinking that they don't understand this opportunity that you have. And if you're waiting on them, then it might neve get done.
You don't beg average people to be phenomenal. You don't beg good people to be phenomenal. You just ARE phenomenal and you will attract phenomenal!
What reason can you remember that you can call on, that you can reach on, that can make you get back up. Find that reason!
If you're not where you are, if you're not where you want to be, if you don't have what you want that you want to have, if you're not where you think you should be at this particular place...it has nothing to do with the system but it has everything to do with the fact that you're not making the sacrifice.
I want you to make that dream become a reality because if you don't, you will be woring for somebody else to make their dreams a reality.
Everybody is against you...or don't believe in you no more. And let me tell you something...that's a lonely feeling...that's a lonely feeling...particularly people that you're doing it for.
Most people take their greatness, take their ideas, to the graveyard with them.
Listen to me... If it was easy, EVERYBODY would do it. There are people right now who are working, who don't want to work. There are people who hate their jobs but they keep getting up to do it.
The wealthiest place on the planet is the graveyard. Because in the graveyard, we will find inventions that we were never ever exposed to...ideas, dreams that neve became a reality...hopes and aspirations that were never acted upon.
The question is...what are you going to do with your time? What drives you? Greatness is a lot of small things done well. Day after day...workout after workout...obedience after obedience...day after day.
When things don't work out for you... When things happen that you could not anticipate... What are the reasons that you can think of that can keep you strong.
You will never ever be successful until you turn your pain into greatness; until you allow your pain to push you, from where you are, to push you where you need to be. Stop running from your pain and embrace your pain. Your pain is going to be a part of your prize, a part of your product. I challenge you to push yourself.
You see it's easy to be on the bottom. It doesn't take any effort to be a loser. It doesn't take any motivation, any drive, in order to stay down there in a lower level. But it calls on everything in you...you have to harness your WILL to say, "I'm going to challenge myself!"
I don't care what you did last week or what time. Today. Today is the only important day. There are 86,400 seconds in a day. And how you use those is critical. You got 86,400 a day and what you do today is going to show me who you are. Nobody's going to talk about what you did last week.
The biggest enemy that you have to deal with is yourself. There's an old African proverb that says, "If there's no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm."
You have this opportunity of a lifetime. It means absolutely nothing if you don't take advantage of it in the lifetime of this opportunity.
I got a saying that when life knocks you down, try and lie on your back because if you can look up, you can get up. If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it...to work day and night for it...to give up your time, your peace and sleep for it. If all that you dream and scheme is about it. And life seems useless and worthless without it. See, it's time now...if you want to make this your decade, you've got to start saying, "yes", to your life. You've got to start saying, "yes", to your dreams..."yes", to your unfolding future..."yes" to your potential. As opposed to saying, "no".
When you die, let no dream left behind...let no opportunity left behind. When you leave this earth, accomplish every single thing you can accomplish. Listen to me, you're going to be here one day but you'll never get here if you give up, if you give in, if you quit. It finally does...but you gotta want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe.
