May 18, 2017

 1. You must take a reality check.

You must have a reality check in your life. You must say, am I taking responsibility to develop courage. Am I doing what I ought to do? By the way, doing that also takes courage. You got to be courageous to ask that question. Take a reality check and ask yourself, am I in control of what I am doing.

2. Get real. Do whatever it takes and do what you have to do.

3. I want you to take a real unapologetic charge of your environment and of the people you hang out with. I want you to take charge courageously and say, there certain friends I don’t need in my life anymore. There certain people I need to let go because, it is important.

4. Turn off all external negative input. Start with turning off the television, the news and the people who do not add anything to you.

Today I want to talk to you about something very important. In fact, without this one the year is not going to be as great as it should be. And this is courage.

 

How to develop courage to succeed in 2017.

It takes courage to leave a good life. It takes courage to leave the life that you deserve to leave. It is the courageous people that have been able to make things happen. It is the courageous people that have been able to surmount big challenges and create the life for their families and the people they love. Because, it is much more important to be courageous than it is to be a coward.

Think about it, if you continue to be a coward not to do what you ought to do and if you continue to leave a life of mediocrity, what is that going to do for you, your children and the people that you love. This week, it's a little bit in your face but, it's important why? Courage is what is going to make the difference.

1. You must take a reality check.

Last couple of days it's been interesting. Am in the 5 am club. I get up and work out every day in the morning. I get up and do what I have to do and I do my journaling. I code myself kind of not putting in 110%, and I was thinking, nobody is asking after all. I stopped myself very quickly because I was like, whose life is it. And then another episode came out, I was working out and about the 20th minute, I was slacking off a little bit. And again I caught myself saying, hey if you don't work, if you don't put in the work, who is going to not benefit. Which brings me to the first point,

You must have a reality check in your life. You must say, am I taking responsibility to develop courage. You must take that reality check and say, am I taking responsibility for my life. Am I doing what I ought to do? By the way, doing that also takes courage. For you to be totally honest with yourself and say okay, how am I really showing up? You got to be courageous to ask that question. Take a reality check and ask yourself, am I in control of what I am doing. Am I courageous enough to say, I am going to do what it takes because right now I am not doing my best, why? Because I am living a life dependent on other people's opinions and expectations, I am living a life following rules which I don’t even know if they make sense any more. I have a job because everybody must have a job, I married this person because at that age or I had to get married.

I am asking you to say, check a reality check and say, if I continue like this, does that give me my ultimate life, and does that give me the courage and does that give me the life that I am looking for. If it is in business, I want you to take a reality check and say, the way that I am going right now, is that going to get me to my vision, is that going to get me to where I need to get. You got to get real this is 2017. You got to be saying, what would my life be if I stopped to conform. What would my life be if I gave up all these none sense of my fears, if I gave up pleasing other people, if I gave up working because other people wanted me to.

What would your life be if, you had the courage to say no. If you had the courage to say yes. If you had the courage to love deeper. If you had the courage to be your own self. I want you this year to say, I am taking a reality check because, I am going to be who I am, I am going to speak my mind and I am going to do whatever it takes.

2. Get real. Do whatever it takes and do what you have to do.

3. I want you to take a real unapologetic charge of your environment and of the people you hang out with. I want you to take charge courageously and say, there certain friends I don’t need in my life anymore. There certain people I need to let go because, it is important. There certain things I can't do anymore.

I had somebody ask me, you don’t hang out that much, yes. Because I don’t want to waste time hanging out with people who just bring me down and don’t support my mission in life. I am courageous enough to say, I am not going down that road and, I am asking you to do the same thing. Be unapologetic about it because guess what? If you are on a mission and you are unapologetic on that mission, you will end up where you ought to be there by helping a lot more people because, you've lived at your best.

4. Turn off all external negative input. Start with turning off the television, the news and the people who do not add anything to you. There is a guy who usually calls me, well he doesn't call me anymore. And every time by the end of the conversation, in the 3 min he has 4 negative things to talk about. I have since cut them off.

I had another lady the other time and she came to see my and was saying, it looks like you blocked my number, dam straight I blocked the number, why? Because there is a lot of negative stuff coming through, why? If I don’t take charge of that then, how am I going to be in the state that gives me the ability to go to where I need to go. So, take charge of your internal because remember, all the internal stuff that is coming in and is negative, it affects the way you perform and it affects the way you show up.

You’re a business man but you are busy putting in negative information, you are always focusing on what could go wrong. Find a way to say, I am courageous enough to take charge of my inner self. Feed it with the right stuff, information, role model and with the right tools so that you can go on to make a life that you desire. Remember, to live a great life, you got to be courageous. I am asking you, 2017 you got to be more courageous.

5. I want you to get in the fight. Face the fear and do it anyway. If you don’t get in the fight and get hit, either way, you are going to get hit. If you are standing on the side lines and waiting to see what happens, one day the train is going to come and hit you. Just get in the fight. Learn to fight either way. When you fail, you are going to get up and you are going to make sure you never fail again, when you love and you are heartbroken guess what? Next time you are going to find a better way of loving, you are going to find the right person, you are going to attract the right person. So think about, forget about being conscious and this nonsense of I am a perfectionist cause that is the biggest excuse for not taking action. Get in the fight, do something that scares you, there no so many people who have died because they took some courageous decisions. So am challenging you this week, I am saying, let’s do something great, let’s challenge yourself, go for that business, do whatever it takes, cut out that relationship, be who you really can be and say your mind and you will be surprised.

6. Deliberately and un-apologetically focus on what you want every day, why? Where your focus goes your energy goes, where your energy goes you get some results. If you are focusing on the wrong thing, with the wrong negative stuff coming in of course you are putting energy there. That is where you will find that most of the negative stuff is coming back, why? You are focusing on these stuff. I am saying, turn it around and say, I am deliberately focusing on what I want, am putting my energy, my focus and before you know it, stuff will start to come up which you are looking for. Because where energy goes you get results, where you get results you begin to live the life that you deserve. Learn to be courageous. This week step up your game. It’s time to get up, it's to do what you ought to do because 2017 is the epic year that we have to do what we have to do.
