You have to build the man
Garret J White
In order to be the man you have to build the man.
Its frustrating when your not where you want to be.
Its frustrating when you try and start out but its bloody hard
But you can’t become that person until you build that person
So you can sit in frustration
You can quit because its difficult
But you’ll never be that person
You have to do the work
Level Down, So you can level up
I know I wrote this post a few weeks back (Where in your world do you need to level up)
And this post is more the opposite, Where do you need to level down.
Because we all want to accomplish so much, So we take on too much and accomplish nothing.
We try to help others, Try and do five things at once and we become overwhelmed and drained, then do nothing.
Somewhere in your world, you need to Cut back on, So you can level up elsewhere, where it will make a difference to your life, SO you can make a difference in other lives as well.
You can’t do everything and in trying you’ll do nothing.
Where in your world Do you need to level up?
We are not perfect.
We are so far from perfect.
Normally we are pretty awesome in one area of our life.
Maybe for you, that is making money or your health or family, for others it will be something else.
But when we’re awesome in one area
Others don’t get as much attention
And we start to suck in them over time due to neglect.
Having loads of money sucks if you have nobody to share it with, Having a healthy body is not good if you’re on the verge of eviction…
We need to be well rounded across all areas of our life.
So where do you need to level up across your life?
There is only one finish line.
Sometimes the sheer fact that there is no finish line is so overwhelming, we dont do anything.
In our bodies – we have to keep exercising, keep eating healthy to stay fit and healthy.
In our businesses – we have to keep making more sales, more marketing
In our relationships- we have to keep the fire alive
So we don’t do anything, we avoid the work, it’s too hard and we are not willing to do it…
Over and over and over and over again, every day.
But there is no finish line isn’t exactly true.
There is a finish line
And that line is death.
So in life we can choose to avoid the work and live in this dream like reality where we are not happy with who are and we fantasie about who we can become, but never doing anything about it…
Or we can do the work daily.
We can go from a place of where we are today, to a place of who we want to be tomorrow.
And live a life with meaning and purpose instead of fantasies.
We all hit the finish line
The question is how are you running the race
The Stories We Tell
We are limited by the stories we tell ourselves. I am this, I am that I can’t this and I can’t that.
They restrict us to a box that we can’t grow from.
But when we look at the Universe in its constant state of expansion, Then look at us beings in that universe, Aren’t we meant for expansion too?
If our purpose is for expansion and growth, then those stories we tell ourselves have to grow to.
And if the stories have to grow, then so does that box that restricts us.
