If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans. – Woody Allen
People will think your crazy when you tell them about your plans,
‘Your Going To Do What?’
‘Don’t Waste Your Time On That’
Look at the Fertitta Brothers and Dana White when they bought the UFC, Everyone told them not to buy it (including the Fertitta Brothers Farther)
They believed and in 2016 sold the company for 4 Billion, Not bad considering they were operating at a loss for years.
You want to make people laugh, Tell them your plans…
You want support, Show them instead
Eighty percent of success is showing up. – Woody Allen
As of 2014, Woody Allen had produced on Average 1 film every year
Whether that stat is still true now I don’t know (I didn’t check) But 1 film a year is some feat…
When you practice your craft… When you show up daily to your craft… When you don’t feel like it… When you would rather do something else…
And still, you show up… Your 80% of the way there.
Paths are Made by Walking – Franze Kafka
What I love about personal development is that there is no map, You don’t know where you’re going to end up…
You start walking in one direction towards a destination, Overtime as you walk the path you find adversity, obstacles, lessons, learning, stumbling on new stuff, Your destination changes…
Example In my teens I wanted to become a professional boxer…
Through boxing, I found a love for fitness, which led me to wanting to become a police officer or Fireman, which led me to a college course in public services on that course there was a nutrition module, which led to a Personal training degree and on to personal training…
Personal Training led me to becoming broke, which led me to multiple jobs and feeling like I was selling out, which led back to me wanting to personal train again however that path was just the path of me actually wanting to have the business and not the actual job which led to Titan and going down the business route, which led to also starting a property business….
As I keep walking I know that these routes will change and expand…
I don’t know.
But the point of my little story is to keep walking.
Meritum Securus – Easy Is Earned (Jade Teta)
Pain is the process.
The pain of Learning
The pain of Doing
The pain of Failing
It won’t be easy, you learn, you do and then you fail, You adapt you do and you fail some more…
As Garret J White said on one of his podcast episodes, you can’t just walk on stage and expect to be a public speaker like me I’ve got 17 years of experience in this…
Meaning he earnt the right to make it look easy.
You want Easy.
You Better Earn It
Fear Shows You The Quest – Aubrey Marcus
That one thing that keeps eating at you,
That one thing you keep pushing back,
Because the voice inside of you keeps telling you too…
The voice is scared, Scared of Growth.
Silence the voice,
Leave the comforts of the Shire.
Follow your Quest…
