Comfort is the enemy
When Cole was talking about how he didn’t become a professional basketball player he said that it was because he wasn’t putting in the work,
He said he was playing ball every day, but he wasn’t working with coaches and practicing drills, he was pretending to do something…
Then when his friends pointed out that he was doing the same thing with his rap career
He was like oh shit and it woke him up that he was just working in his comfort zone
So he would write a song or a verse and make a beat before he went to the studio.
He would do 7 minute drills where for 7 minutes he would write.
Comfort is the enemy, comfort cost him his basketball career and almost cost him his rap one too
Do the work
(2 Daily Fires today… You lucky buggers)
Your exactly where you need to be, otherwise you wouldn’t be here
Forgot to note the IG account I took that from
Let’s just say you had the skills to fulfil your dream.
You were talented and you could have made it.
But you never did because you didn’t turn up to the auditions because you were lazy or you never had the confidence to release your work…
But instead of excepting that you instead tell people that should have been you or could have been you.
But instead of it being you, you just bore everybody with the same old talk…
You’re in the position now because that’s who you are supposed to be because if not you would have changed it…
But also you are right here right now able to change it.
If that was supposed to have been you but wasn’t because of X, Y or Z then now is the time to work on X, Y or Z you supposed to be here now, to work on them so you can move on from them.
And if you don’t work on them, then yeah this is exactly where you are supposed to be
For those familiar with dating apps, You’ll know it’s all about getting a match now,
Meaning you both swipe right on each other, which allows you to message one and another.
But just because you have a match, does mean you have a date, a partner or even an F-buddy if that’s what you’re after,
There is still a lot of work to be done.
The same is applied in business or even in health
Just because you have a new lead does not mean you have a new customer,
Just because you have a gym membership does not mean you are fit and healthy…
We need to work, and work hard to convert our matches into something,
And a lot of the time they amount to nothing (In my experience anyway :/)
How much does it take to change?
They say, people don’t change
Or that it’s hard to change…
But I disagree.
It doesn’t take alot to change.
Change can happen from the smallest things.
Maybe something someone said that clicked with you.
Or a book.
I know many peoples lives had changed simply from reading a book.
And they have completely changed there lives around.
It doesn’t take a lot to change.
It just requires doing something different
When it’s not on your doorstep
What do you do?
Do you wait until another event rolls around closer to you or do you travel the distance.
I’ve been to several events 100s of miles away from where I live, long train or coach journeys, hotels etc.
At the same time in Facebook groups I see people asking will this event be in X place or y place…
Because they don’t want to travel.
Yet even if it was on there doorstep, would they go?
I don’t know… but the question is if its really worth something to you
How far are you willing to go?
