Sometimes it’s hard to get yourselves
to do the things that you need to do.
Why would you delay things that are important,
that would help reach your goals?
And you wonder why that is?
You have this huge goal.
Yeah. You can not seem to push through the mental blocks.
You have something that you want to do full time.
But you can’t seem to beat procrastination.
This is something we see over and over and over again.
And it’s this idea that you don’t ever start.
You stay trapped in your head.
We are what we repeatedly do.
There are mental habits that are bad.
There are emotional habits that are bad.
There are physical habits that are bad.
The worst habit
and you’re gonna, you’re gonna hate me for saying this,
the first hour of the day is touching your phone.
It’s the worst thing that you could do.
Because you have that addiction to it
and I’ll tell you the reason why you want to do it,
And when you wake up talking about brainwaves states,
we’re talking about superhero States.
Your brain cycles through different brainwaves.
Bate is when you’re most awake.
This is what you’re in Bate most of you right now.
Delta is when you’re sleep.
In between Veta and Bate, when you’re most awake,
is a state called Alpha.
All rights, it’s a state you go in when you meditate.
States you go into when you do deep breathing.
Your character is formed by habits.
And habits are formed by discipline
or the lack of discipline.
You have good habits because you’re disciplined yourself.
We have bad habits
because we don’t discipline ourselves.
For that discipline becomes habits
and those habits become our character.
I’ve never really viewed myself as
particularly talented, view myself as,
you know, slightly above average in talent
and where I excel is
ridiculous, sickening work ethic.
While the other guy sleeping.
I’m working while the other guys eating.
Most people who procrastinate are there in a state of procrastination.
That’s the feeling, right?
Or they have a poor strategy
for executing thing, getting things done.
One of the best ways of changing your state
is by moving your body.
是的 因为当你的身体动起来 你的大脑也活动起来了
Right. Because as your body moves, your brain groups.
The thing about life and business and success
is that you have to be willing to start.
And for people that procrastinate, starting is the hardest part.
For people that worry, for people that think too big,
starting is the hardest part.
If you want to get off the cycle of bad habits
and average choices that you’ve been living in,
go out of your way to take a small step forward.
Then another, and another.
I learned very young that
you don’t try to build a wall.
You don’t set out to build a wall.
You don’t say that
I’m gonna build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall
that’s ever been built.
You don’t start there.
You say I’m gonna lay this brick
as perfectly as a brick can be laid.
There will not be one brick on the face of the earth.
That’s going to be laid better than this brick.
I’m gonna lay in this next ten minutes.
And you do that every single day.
Ensues yeah. You have a wall.
And soon you have a wall and I think psychologically
the advantage that, that gives me over
a lot of people that I’ve have been in competition
with in different situations.
It’s too difficult to take the first step
when you look how big the task is.
The task is never huge to me.
It’s always one brick.
How do you force yourself to do it?
You can wake up in the morning and say
today I’m committing to making small progress
on this thing I’m curious about.
I believe there’s the success formula
and it takes two parts.
It takes first showing up.
50% of success is just showing up.
I think in life,
you want to show up, show up for your health,
show up for your relationships,
show up for your career, show up for your service.
But just showing up is that just gonna get the job done.
No, you have to play full out.
Why you’re doing the things that you’re doing?
Why do you have the bad habits that you have like?
When you find yourself at the same point
over and over and saying,
oh, there’s like Groundhog Day.
Why is it that I just keep
landing in the same spot over and over?
Well, you have to look at it and say
you know what are the things leading up to that,
what are the decisions I’m making,
what are the habits I’m doing,
why am I doing the things that I’m doing?
And pretty soon, you can start to recognize your own patterns
when you can recognize your own patterns.
That’s when you can create change.
You will feel resistance.
You will struggle.
You will start to feel like it needs to be perfect.
You’re going to come up with excuses.
You’re going to talk yourself out of it. Why?
Well, because you’re used to thinking
and now you’re asking yourself to do.
Why am I explaining what you should expect?
The reason why I’m explaining what you should expect is because
it’s normal to feel those things.
It’s normal to feel scared.
It’s normal to feel like
you don’t want to do it.
It’s normal to think about doing it perfect.
Letting those things stop you is a choice.
The road to success is
through commitment and
through the strength to drive
through that commitment
when it gets hard.
And it is gonna get hard
and you’re gonna want to quit sometimes.
But it’ll be colored by who you are
and more who you want to be.
The only solution is micro action.
I don’t want your shed about your big goals.
In fact, for everybody out there,
I don’t want your shed about your dreams and your goals
until you’re actually taking the actions
every day for a couple weeks straight.
You don’t get to talk about your dreams
until you can prove that you wake up.
And every single damn day,
you push yourself to take one small action forward.
If you can do that consistently for a month,
then you can start talking about your dreams,
then you can start talking about how you make money at it,
then you can start talking about how you build steel around it.
But until you can actually get your ass out of bed
and make the commitment to yourself to
do the actions required you’re just all talk.
