I was ready to give up
On the Joe Rogan podcast, The Undertaker tells a story of how he got into wrestling and his first match with a credible company.
He said he would turn up every week to this company’s office, and wait in the lobby hoping to talk to somebody,
Every week on a Wednesday, for 8 months he showed up and nobody talked to him.
He explains he was just about to give up because he was getting nowhere
And this one guy walks in (Doesn’t talk to him) and goes into the office and says we need to give that guy a match (Because he looked like the guy’s late son)
8 Months of being ignored, making no money and getting virtually nowhere.
That’s what success looks like in a world of instant gratification.
In a world where everyone wants 1-hour results.
8 months just to get a shot in the ring (The company didn’t even sign him, they sent him elsewhere.)
Play the long game.

Hello is this the undertaker
On the Joe Rogan podcast, The Undertaker was telling the story of how he became the Undertaker.
And he had, had the meeting with Vince Mcmahon and he was just waiting and one day he got a phone call and all it said was ‘Hello is this The Undertaker’
And he was like I have no idea who The Undertaker was but I was like yeah it’s the Undertaker.
And the rest is history.
Sometimes we have to take a chance even though we don’t have all the details in front of us.
Sometimes we have to be like yeah and then wonder what the hell we have got ourself into.
Will it always work out, No.
But will it work out if we don’t say yeah…
The key to success
Is to do the work – Garret J White We’re all looking for a shortcut, a hack, a secret. There isn’t one The only shortcut is to do the work.
The one day you get lazy could be the one day that changes your life
The day you ease off the gas could be the day that you close that deal, that your boss recognises your hard work or some of your work goes viral
On the other hand, the day you have a lazy one, could be the day you realise that what your doing isn’t working for you, or you have a random life changing idea whilst lounging in bed.
There is no right or wrong in life, different things have different effects
The day you do this could be the day that
Or the day you that then this could happen
If you miss an opportunity, there will be others, even taking an opportunity you could miss out on others
What you do or dont will always reveal another path
The day you do or dont do anything could be the day that changes your life
Old and New Can’t Live Together.
Ok this isn’t entirely true, if you go to Rome you’ll see ancient history blended into modern-day living and it makes one beautiful city (I think I’ve never been) Old and new clearly can live together there.
When it comes to me and you
Old cannot live with the New.
The old way of doing things and a new way of thinking that is.
You want to achieve that big goal. That requires a new way of thinking.
But thinking alone can’t change anything…
So you have to change the way you do things too,
You can’t want to lose weight, but still, do the things that made you gain the weight in the first place.
You can’t get rich by doing the stuff that got you broke…
Do you want change?
The old way has to be evicted.
