Yesterday I was thinking about my journey from being a shy, self conscious and un-confident young man to who I am today.
Lets be real for a moment.
Let me start by saying this:
NOTHING changed for me, until I decided to change MY mindset.
I realized that, if I do not invest in me, no-one else will and nothing will ever change. Think about it, you may be investing your time watching TV, wasting time on Facebook and more time procrastinating rather than doing something for yourself.
You may be spending money on going out to eat, buying more materialistic things that you do not need and carrying out instant gratification spending behaviors to change your emotional state and just feel bad.
Think how much time we can waste not living a life being free of our issues.
When I considered my priorities of what I was doing back then, to what I really wanted out of life, I was SHOCKED and almost ashamed.
But you know what?
That lightening bolt of clarity did something to me, that created HUGE shift in my life, that I have never regretted since.
I begin invested in me. In time and in money, whatever it took to get to where I wanted to be.
Many people will never do that. You see people like us, are will to make things happen no matter what. And the others, they sit, they wait, then remain the same.
It really is the critical difference between getting what you want out of life and unhappiness.
It separates us from the "doers" and the "hesitators".
Invest in yourself and be awesome, this is real talk, because someone has to say it.
You do not have to be great to start. Many people are in the mindset that we have to be great before we even start something. We have this high expectation and perfectionism that we have to understand everything before we begin.
We absolutely do not. Let me tell you why in this video.
