You won’t feel the impostor syndrome unless you’re really trying to do it big…

When you push out into the unknown your past is going to try to pull you back.

You know your scars & flaws better than anyone so who better to tell you to sit down and shut up.

When you feel that you don’t belong, realize your past is trying to bust you & your future is trying to find you.

You can let your past bust you and accept mediocrity…or you can push on- keep putting your art out there with so much volume of work your future HAS no choice but to find you.

You belong “there” not here…keep pushing. “Make it till you make it” @ChaseJarvis says.

“People say I’ll never be as good as I used to be, but if I’m half as good as I used to be, I’m TWICE AS GOOD AS YOU’LL EVER BE!” ~Eminem

Let them have an opinion while you make a decision.

Show up today with a mindset that you’re not done.

The Team Never Quit Podcast crew had Jake Olson on their show.

Jake was a long snapper for the USC Trojans-& oh and he’s blind!

Not only did he play football, but he played for USC & he’s a scratch golfer 🏌️‍♀️…

He said he doesn’t have the “advantage” of seeing the traps & terrain so all he can focus on is his approach & mechanics of each shot.

His ball won’t always go straight, but he can always play the next shot.

What if you played your game as a blind man?

What if you sold the way Olson played his game?

Approach, mechanics, play the next shot.

Our visuals aren’t always positive, often we see the traps, poor terrain, & our past affect our next shot (if we take it at all).

Tee up your next shot up.

Focus on your approach, mechanics, & wherever the ball lands, play the next shot.

Your struggles ain’t all for you

Nobody likes to struggle…

& life is the only one qualified to teach you struggles…

But struggling is a valuable asset in your life. It hurts to learn but the lessons end up being priceless.

Struggles are fo you to Show & Share.

Because I believe 1/2 of your struggles are for you & the other 1/2 for others…

1/2 of your struggles are to show you that you’re capable of handling more. This may be the hardest it’s been, but it won’t be the hardest it’ll ever be. (See your 10 yr old self)

Many of your struggles leave you with no help nor options other than you have to keep fighting to figure it out.

& the other 1/2 of your struggles are for you to share…because inevitably you’ll end up crossing paths with someone, somewhere who will be struggling…

How could you relate if you didn’t first struggle yourself?

Because you know what the end of the rope feels like…because you can relate to when all looks lost…because you know exactly how it feels to only have enough strength for one more round…

& because what looked like the worst day then, turned out to be the best for you now…

You can share your struggles so they can keep fighting.

When it feels you’re the only one, someone steps in- just at the right moment to say, “I struggled too…& made it…& you will too.”

But you can’t share until you first show…yourself.

Keep fighting…

“What are you Best in the World at?”

If I asked you, you’d probably compare yourself to someone way more successful than you & reply with…

“Nothing…”

There will always be someone better than you…

But you are BIW…

Because Best in the World is not what’s in the trophy case nor on the wall-that’s just the fruit…

BIW is a seed of a mindset…

BIW is a mantra…

BIW is a work ethic…

BIW is your swag…

BIW is your ethos…

Think about this…

If you considered yourself Best in the World, what foods would you put into your body?

How would you live?

What relationships would you keep & which ones would you distance yourself from?

If you considered yourself BIW, how would you think…what would you talk about?

Would you coast? Would “good enough” be an option?

Hell no.

Because you’re Best in the World…nothing but premium goes into your tank.

If you’re going to “be” why not just finish the sentence?

Why not BE…Best in the World?

“I’m not going to BE sitting in this chair 5 yrs from now…”

“I’m not gonna BE 60 lbs overweight 6 months from now…”

No matter how it looks or feels right now, finish the sentence…

Stop waking up, looking at the current score, & add to the losses…step out with a BIW to add to the lessons to win.

If I’m going to BE…I might as well be, “Best in the World.”

I recently read Rakim’s book, “Sweat the Technique” (From old school rap group Eric B & Rakim) & he lives by the mantra, “Be better than yourself,” meaning to not get so caught up in what everyone else is doing, just be better than yourself. The idea keeps you focused on developing your skills & techniques.

“Imagine the impossible, then do.” ~Rakim.

To be BIW it’s going to require a couple of things:

🔥 Don’t wait for motivation to show up. Practice the positive behaviors that lead to the greatest impact for you-even when you’re not highly motivated to do so. Sometimes motivation has to catch up. Motivation should accompany your actions, not be the sole driver for what you do.

🔥 Train with the best. “Training” for you could mean physical, but training is also the company you keep. Hang with the best…limit yourself to the rest.

Don’t just “follow” people on social media just to follow….absorb them.

Buy into what they do & less into what they say in their marketing. (The jewelry, cars, cash, & planes are all a way for you to buy what they’re selling)

What are the habits, rituals, & routines that you can incorporate into your own life? You may not be able to hang with a billionaire right now, but you can hang with their minds through books & videos.

“Best” takes years…but is practiced in days, hours, & seconds.

Overweight, broke, divorced, demoted?

Swag out with, “I am the best!” It’s not something you have to say to others…it’s what you think & do right now, from where you are.

The results will show!

Wayne Dyer said, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at begin to change.”

Your success is determined by how you look at things & if you choose to look at things differently, things begin to change for you.

Amazing…

But sometimes it’s like we grab the wrong prescription glasses and we see the world through those lenses… but if they’re not right everything is distorted & blurry.

So when you’re struggling, you’re looking through blurry lenses, but think you’re looking in a clear direction…

Things may be uncertain… scary… & unsure-It may look like all is lost because you can’t see, yet you’re giving it clear direction.

You can’t always choose what’s happened or what’s happening around you, but you can choose how you look at them.

“What you see is what you get,“ is not only a figure of speech it’s a way of life.

So if you’re looking at everything through dead-end lenses then what you see if what you get…

but-even if they seem unfair or unjust, if you choose to look at things differently you’ll find your option. It’s not that you ignore what you see, it’s that you acknowledge it & choose to see it in a way that will not stop you from achieving success.

You have options & now that you see your options, things will begin to change for you.

So your plan to get up early and work out didn’t quite become a reality this morning …

Last night it seemed easy-squeezy- but now you find yourself running behind like all of the other mornings because you overslept…again.

Instead of beating yourself up all day…& quitting before you really get started…

🔥Make an “interest only” payment to yourself.

Financially, if you can’t make a full payment on a loan, you can call your creditor & make an “interest only” payment. It keeps you from defaulting & only pays them interest on the money they loaned you.

In the same way, making an “interest only” payment keeps you from defaulting on your promise to yourself to get in better shape.

While you may not have time to do a full, regular workout, make an “interest only” payment by doing a 10-15 min workout on your lunch break, in your garage, or in your living room tonight. Air squats, burpees, pushups, dips (using 2 chairs), or a walk/run around your block should do the trick.

You’ll fell better about yourself & your body & mind will begin to transform because you just proved you’re committed to never going back.
