You Need the Right Mindset
I want you to think about your life.
At the end of this day, will you be a better version of yourself? At the end of this year, will you be any closer to becoming the greatest version of yourself?
We are programmed by society to focus on what holds us back. We are conditioned to focus on our limitations. We ask ourselves things like: "Why can't I be here?" and "Why can't I do this?" We ask ourselves, "Why can't I be this person?"
The greatest version of yourself is waiting for you to WAKE UP and focus on what you do have control over.
What do you want for your life? How do you want to live? Let me ask you something: When is the last time you really thought about where your path is taking you? When is the last time you took control over your life?
What does the greatest version of yourself really look like?
As an athlete, there are three things I think are essential to success.
First, you need a coach. As an athlete, I know the value a coach represents. A coach can be a literal coach, or it can be someone who's been through what you're going through. A coach is someone you can learn from.
The second thing you need is a community. Who do you surround yourself with? Who are your friends? Do me a favor: Evaluate your life, and think about the environment you've surrounded yourself with. Is it helping you become your best self?
Mindsets are contagious. Surround yourself with great mindsets, and you will succeed.
The third thing you need is information. You need knowledge to understand where you are, where you want to go, and how to become your best self. I wish I was born with all the knowledge in the world, but unfortunately, none of us are. What you and I can do is invest in ourselves by investing in books, in programs, and in coaches.
Surround yourself by people who are better than you. If you're the smartest or most successful person in the room, you're in the wrong room, period.
Go outside your comfort zone! You want to be healthier. You want to be more fit. You want a better mindset and a healthier spirit. I know you want all those things because that's what everyone wants. That's universal.
The only way to get there is through hard work. You need to sit down and put in effort. You can't skip the process.
It all starts with you.
