A divided mind will fall 

A divided mind will fall  – Garret J White

When you want change but you’re scared of change, You will not change.

The fear will consume you, you will seek the comforts of what you know.

Rather than the uncertainty of change.

You will battle yourself daily, knowing that you should do something different but the voice in your head won’t let you.

You want change, you need to be certain that you want it, you can’t be torn between change and comfort (Old and New can’t live together remember) because comfort will win.

If your mind is split, dive deeper into why you want to change, take a look 5,10, 15 years down the line, how does your life look if you stay the same…

The title needs to be Earned

‘You have to have done something Before You can be Said to have done something, The title needs to be earned’ – David Hicky

Unfourtantly we live in a world where people want the title, but they don’t want to do the work…

You can’t be a writer without writing something…

A photographer without ever taking a photo,

An investor without investing…

You get the point…

Forget about the title, just do the work…

Or live out the rest of your life pretending.

“I am”

‘I Am’…

Possibly the strongest and truest statement you can make…

Are the words that follow ‘I am’

As soon as that statement has been made, Your mind will go out of its way to make that statement appear true, pointing out things that confirm your belief and filtering out the stuff that it thinks you don’t want to see…

So be careful when your ‘I am’ follows this path…

I am a failure,
I am a terrible writer
I am fat
I am destined for bad stuff to happen to me
I am [Bad Thing Here]

You are if you say you are, so make it…

I am – A success
I am – Fit and Healthy
I am – destined to be stronger than the bad stuff that happens to me
I am… A Titan (Originally written for my companies FB page – Titan Strength Academy)

Persist and Resist

“Persist and Resist.” Epictetus

Remember your in this for the long run, till the whistle blows and knowing that you know that every second is yours to use.

You don’t need to worry about the other team, the scoreboard, what who and what have done as long as that clock is ticking you can turn the game around…

By Persisting in your efforts even when things aren’t going so good…

And resisting distractions that stop you from persisting that is the only way we can get ‘so far As I can see no way out but through’ (Yesterday’s post)

Or in so far As I can see no way out but through

He says the best way out is always through And I agree to that, or in so far As I can see no way out but through. ROBERT FROST

‘In so far, as I can see no way out but through’…

That is the place to be,

Where you have a long way to go, So far from your goal you’re questioning how can this be done…

But you’ve made it far enough that you don’t want to turn back because you can’t…

You’ve already crawled across unknown lands, learnt and grown too much, to revert back to your old ways, to the land of comfort.

In so far, as I can see no way out but through.
