热血 汗水 与尊重
Blood, sweat, and respect.
The first two you give, the last one you earn.
Let’s get out and earn it!
Do you know how many people tweet hustle and work 6 hours a day?
They say that nothing good happens in the 4 AM hour.
Well, I can guarantee them this.
现在是凌晨4：45 天还黑着 灯刚灭
It’s 4:45 a.m. It’s still dark outside. Look at that, lights just went out.
And I’m getting ready to kill this A.M cardio.
我健身那么爽时 你都看不见 真糟糕
You can’t even see me but it’s going to be so good it’s bad!
If you ever say to somebody else why are you up so early, that is the quickest tell to you are not a winning player.
Run the day or the day runs you
I don’t care if you’re a born entrepreneur.
I don’t care if you’ve been to jail.
I don’t care if you dropped out of high school.
What do you wanna become?
And what price are you willing to pay to get there?
Well, I’m always trying to outdo myself.
So, I posed the question for everyone else.
What now with you?
I know what I’m doing.
And I know the directions that I’m going in.
But I love to inspire and to motivate.
So, that question should be a question that everybody gets.
After school, after work, after any and everything you do.
Have you ever struggled to be more disciplined?
You know you got that paper due next week but you don’t do anything all week even though you know it’s coming?
或者你设立了新的习惯 可以改善生活 交际 工作
Or you set up a brand new habit, you’re so excited about it, that you know it can improve your life, your relationships or your work
but you don’t stick to it?
Or, you started that workout routine and you got really pumped up, fired up into it, you even lost a couple pounds
but then, you know, 3 weeks later it was gone and what did you blame?
You blamed your discipline.
I teach people that daily you have to prime yourself.
You have to do something for 10 minutes minimum.
If you don’t have 10 minutes, you don’t have a life.
Everyday selling myself, selling myself.
I’m gonna write a New York Times best selling book, okay?
I’m gonna speak to tens of thousands of people.
I’m gonna help millions of people on planet Earth.
I’m literally reminding myself every day: “When I wake up in the morning I write my goals down when I go to bed at night I write my goals down.”
It’s the first thing and the last thing I do every day.
I’ve been doing that for 25 years.
每天只是早起 但不自律 什么也得不到
If you don’t do that if you get up and just have no discipline whatsoever, you get no value of anything.
Your diets don’t work when you don’t do them.
Exercise doesn’t work when you don’t do them.
But, most of the people already have some experiences that they want to shift.
And once you shift those things, your whole life changes.
But life is constant growth.
My life isn’t here because I went to one seminar one time and now my life is fit for life.
我做训练 强化思想 强壮身体
I workout, I train my mind, I train my body.
It becomes a lifestyle.
Discipline is one of the most important things we can develop in our lives because
没有独立能力 肆意而为 无法坚持
without that ability to be sort of self-reliant and willful to get things done on a continual basis,
we never get that great amount of momentum and progress towards what we really want.
First time I wake up in the morning, I prime myself.
That’s what I’ve done for years.
It’s like, I changed my body cause radical breathing pattern or movement, but then I do it for ten minutes.
Three and a half minutes of pure gratitude about three things.
And the reason for gratitude is:
The two emotions that mess up the most are fear and anger.
And you can’t be grateful and fearful simultaneously. They don’t go together.
And then I do three minutes of my ‘Three to Thrive’ ― what are three outcomes or results I’m really committed to?
And I see them as done and fulfilled.
The first idea is to emotionally engage with that dream.
Each morning of your life.
See, a lot of people don’t actually struggle with the discipline part in terms of the “doing” the thing.
It’s that they are not getting revved up to do the thing.
In other words, we’ve got a problem with motivation.
Not necessarily just discipline.
Where does motivation stop and start? Everybody’s got a different answer.
But here’s what I can tell you.
It’s really easy to be motivated.
Either you’ve got it or you can watch it.
It’s really hard to execute.
It is the variable that separates people.
People are always gonna tell me everyday.
Everyday I roll up on people, they are like: “Yo, I’m gonna buy the Seahawks and you’re gonna buy the Jets.
我说 好 等不及再见到你
And I’m like: Great! Can’t wait to see you!
人们总说 他们要做这个 做那个
People are always telling me that they’re gonna do this and that and this and that.
And you know what I do?
I ask lots of them to e-mail me in 60 days.
In 90 days.
In a year.
And you know how many do?
People talk s***.
And I don’t know where it stops or starts but I know that most of you, 99% of you aren’t gonna do anything about it.
And that sucks.
You have a problem with that once in a while you hit it.
You do it. You do the work.
But a lot of times you fall off because you’re not emotionally engaged it.
It’s like if you want a lot of discipline, you need a high level of emotional connection and focus on that thing that you wanna work towards.
所以 每个早晨 你需要从新的想象开始
So, every morning, what I want you to do is just start a new visualization.
当你早上醒来 闭上眼睛回想 梦想 抱负 一生所愿
When you wake up in the morning, close your eyes, think about the dream, the aspiration, the thing that you’re really after in life.
And just visualize it.
And really get yourself emotionally attached.
Emotionally engaged with it.
Think about how great it will feel for you to have that thing.
Or be that thing.
Or contribute that thing.
To make that difference.
在心里生根发芽 为之欣喜 记住这个梦
Just think about it and allow it to well up in your heart a little bit, get excited about it, remember the dream.
That’s why we get away from discipline because we’re so busy with the chaos in the world,
情绪消失时 请用理性告诉自己：嗨 专注点 这很重要 记得吗？
that we emotionally are no longer attached in the way that our brain says: Hey man, focus on this! It’s important to you, remember?
I think the people that have made those mistakes and that have went through those crazy changes are people that have put themselves in a position to not grow.
So why go backward?
You’re supposed to progress, you’re not supposed to digress.
The reason a lot of people don’t have discipline in their life is they’re letting their day be ruled by randomness.
They don’t have blocks of time that have actually been scheduled to do the thing they’re supposed to do.
So they’re counting on sudden will.
噢 你懂 我今天就去
“Oh, you know, I’ll get to that today!”
“Or I’ll get to that someday!”
And of course “someday” turns into “never” and then they start blaming their discipline.
It’s not their discipline.
It’s the lack of a calendar that says: “Do this now!”
所以 规划你必须做的 你会发现你是如此自律
So, schedule what you must make happen and you’ll suddenly find yourself: “Wow, I’m so disciplined!”
You need to have scheduled blocks of time where that discipline happens everyday and that’s the only thing that happens.
Look, you can always do something everyday towards your dreams.
如果你坚信 它可能很小 可能只是搞点小研究
And if you believe that, it could be just something small, it could be doing a little research,
写日记 采取行动 做个演讲 打个电话
journaling, taking that action, granting that presentation, making that call.
Whatever it is for you, you can do something every day.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said:
Do not go where the path may lead
Go instead where there is no path
and leave a trail.
It’s never going to make sense.
It’s never gonna be obvious.
You’re never going to walk out your door and see the obvious way that you want to go.
And if you do, it’s a trap!
If you do go down the path it’s already laid for you, it’s going to take you to all the destinations that are already known.
It’s going to take you to all of the places that instinct drove the people before you.
But if you wanna go somewhere unique, if you wanna go somewhere that only you would go,
if you wanna create something new and really live a life that was meant for you because it’s literally crafted by you,
you have to take the first steps on faith.
And as Rumi said:
As you start to walk out on the way
the way appears
So as you’re looking at the choices that are before you, where you’ve got a path that’s well trodden,
you’ve got a path that literally is invisible and won’t become something until you step on it,
you have to understand that that’s what this life is meant to be.
And that the only frustration that you will look back on with tremendous regret is knowing that you did what was easy even though it wasn’t you.
There’s some mechanism inside of us.
There’s something that wants us to walk a path that’s never been walked before.
And the thing that makes it so hard it’s right now, inside of you is a desperate desire for that to be easy.
But it’s not going to be easy.
It’s going to be hard.
You’re going to fail.
You’re gonna stumble.
You’re gonna fall on your face.
And thank God!
Because as Muhammad Ali said:
Only a man who knows what it’s like to be defeated
can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win
When the match is even
So what you have to ask yourself is: What do you want?
Do you want it to be easy?
Do you want the path to be well worn?
Or do you want the path to be yours?
你想知道身体里有某种东西可以伸手抓住 在你最需要它 它就会在那
Do you want to know that inside of you is something that you can reach into and grab and it will be there at the moment that you most need it?
Do you want to know that you’re that type of person?
Because if you do, you have to be willing to walk a path that it doesn’t exist.
You have to be willing to tread through the brambles.
You have to be willing to fall because it is in that process of failure and pain and agony and suffering that you will become.
That’s the process that will make you, YOU!
That’s the process that will shape you.
It’s the suffering that gives you the reserve to draw when you need the most.
所以当你想要安逸 舒适 你要知道自己在为软弱祈祷
So when you ask for safety, when you ask for ease, know that you’re saying a prayer for weakness.
And when you take the hard way, know that you’re forging yourself.
当你提出这些要求时 要知道你正建造一个储备箱 当你需要它的时候 它就会在那里
When you make those demands know that you’re building a reserve tank that will be there at the moment when you need it.
When you walk the path that only you can walk know that you’re living the life that you are meant to live.
And that my friends, is how you become the “you” worth becoming.
