Let's try a little game. Look for everything around you that is red, now close your eyes and describe everything that was blue.

Most miss what's there because we are so fixated on what we are looking for, we are constantly trying to confirm our biases. We are looking for things to confirm our beliefs. Even the negative about ourselves.

Start looking for what's right.

Start clapping for yourself when you do the right the th...

Milk is spilled on the floor.

You didn't do it.

It's your house.

The person, animal, thing that did it is not around, gone.

What are you going to do about it?

You gonna sit there and sulk.

Let it sit and wait for someone else to clean it.

It lingers, it rots, it spoils, stinks worse every minute its not addressed.

What are you going to do about it?

Where in our life right now is the milk spilled.

Where are we waiting for for someone ...

Momentum=the quantity of motion of a moving body

People want big results.

People fail because they RUSH to big results.

They expect a result and don't respect the process!

You can't skip to the end.

You must take each individual step.

That's where you learn.

That's where and how you build momentum

Momentum is built with consistent daily action.

You don't fail at a result

You fail at the preparation.

Behaviour change is harder to maintain than Belief change

Identity change = Reality change

“There's no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all equals as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that's that. I am not talented. I am obsessed.” -Conor McGregor

Achieving a goal has nothing to do with talent.

It's an obsession.

What are the things you measure or track to stay motivated? -Kyle, Ohio

For me when hear or see the word motivation. I have conditioned myself to think ACTION!!!

It's about effort! I track or look at my effort.

I definitely set goals, but its not about obtaining the goal its about who I become in the process. It's about becoming the person that can obtain that goal. Putting in the effort it takes to get there.

Are you convicted or Are you interested?

Most people don't know.. But, There is a MASSIVE DIFFERENCE

Convicted - the state of mind of a person who is sure that what he or she believes.

Interested - having the attention or curiosity

If you are convicted you will find a way.

If you are interested you will find an excuse.

If you simply have interest in something you will find reasons it won't work, reasons to not take action.

The 80/20 Principle or Pareto Principle says 80% of your results come from 20% of your activities.

I believe its even more skewed than that. That most are doing very few things that are leading to the actual life they want. Leading them to "the best version of themselves"

Meaning most of what you do throughout the day is actually a distraction.

Most of what you are doing is taking you farther from your goals or the life you wa...

Do this and your life will change, a message from Jerry Rice.

"Today I will do what others won't so tomorrow I can do what others can't.”

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing the best you can do it!!

If you give it everything, even the small things, 100%, you train yourself to be great! Make your bed, clean the kitchen, sweep the floor, do it the best you can do it.

Train yourself to be great!

One task at a time.

High-performance coach Ben Bergeron has a simple saying:


Event + R = Outcome

The R is the factor. You either React or Respond

There is a major difference.

React = Impulsive, Emotions

Respond= Calculated, Principles

He warns that giving in to negative and disorienting self-talk—what he calls “chatter”—can tank our health, sink our moods, strain our social connections, and cause us to fold under pressure.

The One Thing

Sounds confusing, but the answer is.. Yes!

All of those work, Its actually, what you are committed to!

Commitment is a statement of what is!

You can know what you're committed to by the results you are getting.

Not by what you SAY, by what you are DOING

If you want a different result, you must commit to a different behavior.
