Who are you trying to convince

Who are you trying to convince

When your talking

Saying that your going to do this and that

You are just trying to convince yourself that you can do it because you don’t believe in yourself

And you are most likely trying to gain approval of others

This rarely works and nothing gets done

The simple solution is to just do the work

Just sit down and do it
Just go for the run
Just do the workout

Whatever you saying your gonna
Just do it before you talk yourself out of it

You have to build the man

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

Don’t depend on your mother

Don’t depend on your mother or anybody else to buy or cut up your vegetables for you

– Gary Halburt

When we rely on others it gives us an excuse as to why we failed.

As Gary wrote to his son whilst in prison

what we should do is develop a strong independent attitude

Other people have there own things going on and they may forget that they have agreed to do you a favour, they may also not do what you wanted correctly causing you to fail.

Their actions are out of your control and the only thing in your control is your own actions.

Hold yourself accountable instead of

‘Its not my fault they forgot to buy me my vegtables’
‘Its not my fault my colleges didn’t do their end of the work’

Its all your fault if you didn’t do the work yourself.

There is only Perfectionist Block

Perfectionist Block

– Jessica Brody

Perfection blocks us from pretty much anything we do in life,

I remember when I thought about starting this blog and I said to myself I’ll wait until I am a successful businessman till I start writing (Lol) because then it will be perfect

That would have been many years of writing not done

I always hear people say they’ll wait until they lose weight before they go to the gym < like what?

There is no such thing as writers block or gym block or anything block the only thing that is blocking us is that we want everything to be perfect

And nothing is
So nothing is done

Allow yourself to be bad

Nothing Days

Nothing Days

We think of the days when we have that big exam, or wedding days or something really important as the days that define us

But the days that define us are the nothing days, when we dont have a lot on,

What we do in those days they are what define and make us

Not the 2 weeks before a holiday but the 300 days of nothing when you train those days

When you read and study not for the exam bit just for you

When you practice your craft for the sake of practice

Or when you stay in bed when you literally do nothing

Everything we do defines us…
