Today I want to focus on you. I want to give you some advice that can really help you and pour the motivation you need into your life. I want to talk about what it means to be legendary, and what you can do to become legendary yourself. First I want to start by saying that you have to really live by this advice. Take something I am saying today and apply it to your life. I always say application creates transformation. I would love to motivate you, but I am going to just be honest, motivation will not be enough. If you want to see some real change in your life and become legendary then that is going to mean taking some serious steps towards change. It is going to take you taking some of the things I say here and actually applying them to your life. I love for you to read these blogs and visit my website and all of that, but if you are not applying this to your life, then I am just going to be straight up with you, you are wasting your time. My advice is not here for entertainment. I give this advice to help people genuinely grow, but that takes choice. That takes determination. And that takes commitment.
Average people, not you, but regular people depend on motivation to move, but legendary people move to create their motivation. The first step to becoming legendary and maintaining that legendary mindset is mastering commitment. I am going to dive deeper into what this means. Commitment is staying loyal to something that you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left. Motivation will get you started, but motivation dies quick when things become challenging. Regular people take motivation and decide to start working out, and that will work for them for a few days, or maybe even a week or two, but eventually that alarm clock will go off early in the morning to get up and go to the gym and that snooze button will be too much of a challenge so their motivation will die and they will give up. Legendary people never depend on motivation. They depend on the commitment they made that knew from the very start that things would get hard. The commitment means knowing that there will be times where what you said you were going to do sucks and no part of you will want to go through with it. Commitment is pushing through that struggle and doing it anyway, even though everything in you tells you to quit.
If you want to become legendary you have to understand that it is more than just a choice. The choice is barely the beginning. If you want to be legendary, then commitment and mastering commitment will have to be your best friend. No matter how hard it is, or how much you want to quit, to be legendary you have got to push through whatever it is in you that tells you you can’t do it, because that is not true. You can do it. If you can focus on commitment, then you can do anything you set your mind to.
It all starts with you.
