blood sweat and respect the first thing you give the last one you are let’s get out and earn it do you know many people tweet hustle and work six hours a day they say that nothing good happens in the 4 a.m. hours well I can guaran-damn-tee of this it’s 4:45 a.m. it’s still dark outside look at that lights just went out and I’m getting ready to kill this AM cardio you can’t even see me but it’s gonna be so good it’s bad if you ever say to somebody else why are you up so early that is the quickest tell – you are not a winning player whatever it is you’re bold enough you’re big enough to dream if you are intentional and deliberate about it now there are some aspects of it that are going to be organic but if you are intentional and deliberate if you build it on Monday if you build it on Tuesday if you build it on Wednesday I want you to understand that it’s not going to happen by look productivity is always intentional and deliberate and on a Tuesday went Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday set every single day if you do a little you’re gonna wake up one day and your dreams are gonna be a reality you can’t just say you want it you can’t watch the video and say I wanted as bad as I want to breathe it’s to just say it but when it’s Showtime when the Sun comes up when the Sun comes up you’ve got all the books you’ve got all the tapes you’ve got all the access now it’s time to hunt and what separates you from everybody else is that when it’s time to hunt you ready to hunt everybody’s got Lions on their profiles everybody talks positive about themselves everybody talks like your bees you dressed like your bees you’ve got the cards like the beasts but then when it’s time to do what bees do you you you back up why is it so hard to do the little things that would improve my life the way that our minds are designed is our minds are designed to stop you at all costs from doing anything that might hurt you there are so many people in the world and and you know you may be watching this right now and you have these incredible ideas and what you think is missing is motivation and that’s not true because the way that our minds are wired and the fact about human beings is that we are not designed to do things that are uncomfortable or scary or difficult our brains are designed to protect us from those things because our brains are trying to keep us alive and in order to change in order to build a business in order to be the best parent of a spouse to do all those things that you know you want to do with your life with your work with your dreams you’re gonna have to do things that are difficult uncertain or scary which sets up this problem for all of us the one thing we have in this world is we can’t control the events but we can choose what to focus on we can choose what things mean and we can choose what to do those three choices those three decisions really control our life you can always make a decision that’s always in your control staying with somebody that treats you like garbage is a decision it is staying at a job that you hate is a decision staying in the body that you are not proud of is a decision is it going to be easy and what’s not gonna be easy to change it’s simple it’s your job to push yourself it’s not the smartest people who achieve success it’s the people who procrastinate less make fewer excuses as they take actions every day towards the goals that they want to achieve indecision is the thief of opportunities indecision means the door is still closed indecision means the opportunity wages indecision means what could be is postponed or may never be if you want to be successful with anything in life never leave the sight of senator ball without doing something that convinced you to fulfillment the next morning the alarm goes off and I pretended NASA was there it’s a stupidest story I literally went 5 4 3 2 1 I counted out loud and then I stood up and I’ll never forget standing there in my bedroom it was dark it was cold it was winter in Boston and for the first time in 3 months I had beaten my habit of hitting the snooze button there were moments all day long all day long just like that five-second moment in bed where I knew knowledge what I should do and if I didn’t move within five seconds my brain would step in and talk me out of it every human being has a five-second window might even be shorter for you you have about a five-second window in which you can move from idea to action before your brain kicks into full gear and sabotages any change in behavior your life is what you think it should be that’s exactly what you are right now you are what you thought you should be and if you don’t like who you are you got to change what you think you should be what you think is more important than what you do and so if you want to change you got to work on this attitude bit decide commit act succeed repeat the one thing that all the greats have in common is they sweat the small stuff they pay very very close attention to every detail what makes you comfortable can ruin you or makes you uncomfortable is the only way to grow what you are and what you become depends on how you use your time the billionaire and the beggar both have 24 hours every [Music] the old and the young black and white Indian and the Asian are all given the same amount of time every day you cannot stop a day you cannot stop an hour but you can control how it will be used have you ever struggled to be more disciplined you know you got that paper due next week but you don’t do anything all week even though you know it’s coming or you set up a brand new habit you’re so excited about that you know can improve your life your relationships or your work but you don’t stick to it or you started that workout routine and you got really pumped up fired up into it you’ve lost a couple pounds but then you know three weeks later it was gone and what did you blame blamed your discipline I teach people but daily you have to prime yourself you have to do something for 10 minutes minimum if you don’t have 10 minutes you don’t other wife every day selling myself selling myself I’m gonna write a New York Times best-selling book okay I’m gonna speak to tens of thousands of people I’m gonna help millions of people on planet earth I’m literally reminding myself every day when I wake up in the morning I write my goals down when I go to bed at night I write my goals down it’s the first thing and the last thing I do every day I’ve been doing that for 25 years if you don’t do that if you get up and just have no discipline whatsoever you get no value of anything your diets don’t work when you don’t do them exercise doesn’t work when you don’t do them but most people have some experiences that they want to shift and once you shift those things your whole life changes but life is constant growth my life isn’t here because I went to one seminar one time and thought my life is fit for life I worked out I trained my mind to train my body there becomes a lifestyle discipline is one of the most important thing we can develop in our lives because without that ability to be sort of self-reliant and willful to get things done on a continual basis we never get that great amount of momentum and progress towards what we really want first time I wake up in the morning i prime myself that’s what I’ve done for years it’s like I changed my body this radical bleeding pattern or movement but then I do through ten minutes three and a half minutes of pure gratitude about three things and the reason for gratitude is the two motions that messes up the most are fear and anger and you can’t be grateful for fearful simultaneously don’t go together and then I do three minutes of my three to thrive what are three outcomes the results I’m really committed to and I see them as done and fulfilled the first idea is to emotionally engage with that dream each morning of your life see a lot of people don’t actually struggle with the discipline part in terms of the doing the thing it’s that they’re not getting revved up to do the thing in other words we got a problem with motivation not necessarily just discipline where does the motivation stop and start everybody’s got a different answer but here’s what I can tell you it’s really easy to be motivated either you’ve got it or you can watch it it’s really hard to execute it is the variable that separates people people are always gonna tell me every day every day I roll up on people they’re like yo I’m gonna buy the Seahawks and they’re gonna buy the Jets and I’m like wait I can’t wait to see you people are always telling me that they’re gonna do this so that and this and that and you know what I do I ask lots of them to email me in 60 days in 90 days in a year and you know how many do bucyk people talk and I don’t know where it stops or starts but I know that most of you 99% of you aren’t going to do anything about it and that sucks we have a problem with that once in a while you hit it you do it you do the work but a lot of times you fall off because you’re not emotionally engaged your student it’s like if you want a lot of discipline you need a high level of emotional connection and focus on that thing that you want to work towards so every morning what I want you to do is just start a new visualization habits when you wake up in the morning close your eyes think about the dream the aspiration the thing that you’re really after in life and just visualize it and really get yourself emotionally attached emotionally engage with them think about how great it will feel for you to have that thing or be that thing or contribute that thing to make that difference just think about it allow it to well up and your heart a little bit get excited about it remember the dream that’s why we get away from discipline because we’re so busy with the chaos in the world that we emotionally are no longer attached in the way that our brain says hey man focus on this it’s remember I think the people that have made those mistakes and that have went through those crazy changes are people that have put themselves in a position to not grow so why go backwards he was supposed to progress and I supposed to digress the reason a lot people have discipline in their life is they’re letting their day be ruled by randomness they don’t have blocks of time that have actually been scheduled to do the thing they’re supposed to do so they’re counting on sudden will oh you know I’ll get to that today or I’ll get to that someday and of course some day turns into never and then they start blaming their discipline it’s not their discipline it’s the lack of a calendar that says do this now so schedule what you must make happen and you’ll suddenly find yourself wow I’m so disappointed you need to have scheduled blocks of time where that discipline happens every day and that’s the only thing that happens look you can always do something every day towards your goals and if you believe that it could be just something something small it can be doing a little bit of research journaling taking that action creating that presentation making that call whatever it is for you you can do something every day just because you’re doing a lot more doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot more done don’t confuse movement with progress [Music] you don’t start because of watch it don’t you don’t start because you don’t realize yet that the fruit of everything good in life begins with the challenge there’s nothing easy in life worthwhile in life everything is a pill that’s worthwhile and this it’s not going to come to you and it’s not going to fall in your lap and it’s not going to be something that only God it just was so simple it’s always going to be difficult [Music] the only way you’re ever going to get to the other side of this journey is you have got to suffer to grow to grow you must suffer most of this generation quits the second they get talked to you did this wrong you did this wrong or they get yelled at it’s so easy to be great nowadays because everybody else is most people are weak this this is a softened generation so if you have any mental toughness any of any ability give any fraction of self-discipline the ability to not want to do it but still do it people have a hard thing understand I hate to run and it what makes me so crazy it doesn’t need more people why do you run if you hate it what are you talking about I don’t want to take showers and even either I hate that too then the whole that’s a life man that isn’t in it it wasn’t until I changed that mentality that I became somebody but if you can get through to doing things that you hate to do on the other side is greatness so have dreams but have goals life goals yearly goals monthly goals daily goals and understand that to achieve these goals you must apply discipline and consistency in order to achieve your goals you must apply discipline and consistency every day now I just want to say and miss a few days you have to work at it every day you have to plan every day I’m going to saying we don’t plan to fail we failed the plan hard work works working really hard is what successful people do [Music] and for me to fix this I get a read what the hell is wrong with David God not blame anybody read my books okay I’m afraid of my shadow how can I overcome that go in and military get your ass kicked do things you hate to do be uncomfortable every day of your life Roger that I’m not the smartest kid in the world okay it says somebody saying oh no you’re smart no no I don’t say that to yourself I said to myself no I’m a dumb motherfucker okay Roger that how you get smarter educate yourself so the things that we run from we run from the truth we’re running from the truth man so the only way I became successful was going towards the truth as painful and as brutal as it is it changed me it allowed me to become in my own right who I am today tighten up people it’s okay trust me it’s okay you might be called nigger one day it’s okay you might be called some Jewish word or some faggot or gay word it’s okay let them call you that what are you going to do now they don’t own your life how are you going to control that now how are you gonna flip it upside down and say Roger that now I’m going to harness this shit and you’re read about me years from now how that’s the question how are you gonna do that thicken your skin become more of a human being don’t be afraid of the reflection in the mirror that’s all you can be afraid of once you overcome the reflection in the mirror you’ve done it I like something Les Brown said once he said there are losers and there are people who haven’t learned how to win my question to you is this which one are you are you a loser or are you still learning how to win if you’re not a loser it doesn’t mean that you’re less than it could mean that you’ve gotten really good at quitting it could mean that you’ve gotten really comfortable ending your race before the finish line you have your reasons for not finishing and I’ve had mine too but right here right now the question is do you want to win self-discipline separates people from success and not being successful I’ve never met a person who was not successful that didn’t have a great amount of self-discipline within their life self-discipline and being able to perform and being able to keep your life on schedule and being able to keep commitments and promises and meet deadlines is essential to success look if you want to get rich you want to be really successful when I say rich I’m not talking about money I’m talking about a rich life freedom time with family choices get to do what you want see this is what people did they set a target you remember when you were a kid and you set targets or a big giant had nothing to do with reason they were giant right and then you had some difficulty getting to it and somebody said what did your goals are unrealistic you need to drop your goals down and add 40 years and end up with nothing certainly not congruent with your potential none of us can afford to have a life that is controlled by someone else or a life that is basically controlled by our emotions I learned many years ago that there are two kinds of people there’s the type of person who says I’m gonna wait til I feel like it before I do it and then there’s a person who says I’ve got to do it so that I feel like it one will never get anything done because they’re sterile waiting to feel the moment to move or the other person says no I need to move and then I will begin to feel the moment [Music] most people have strategies available or they could get them or you could create them but the problem is you got a story and your story is why it isn’t working and the story is I’ve tried everything if you tried everything you’d be fit you try everything you’d be profitable there’s always a story and what I tell people’s you know if you can just divorce the story of your limitation and marry the truth of your unlimited capacity than the whole game changes most of us in our life are trying to make a 10% improvement and we know this this is I’m trying to crease my revenues by 10% I’m trying to increase my sales by 10% save 10% more the lands out there whatever it truly is we all have this sort of beaten into us by life and by the rest of universe that you can make these small incremental improvements but the fact the matter is that there are those in the world that go ten times bigger and you every one of us can be that I would say to you that it’s your duty your obligation and your responsibility to fulfill your potential and that that’s actually what success is success is not money simplest thing is get crazily hungry for something we all know and you get so hungry so desirous your brain starts coming up with answers and then it’s massive action but effective execution which is all modeling which is assume what this is about find the best example compress the time let someone else take 20 years to figure it out you do it in two weeks or two months even if you have no idea how to solve it no idea how to get there you’ll be amazed at what you come up with and what’s interesting is our legacy our past anchors us to where we are today and you have to let go of that you truly have to let go of all the stuff in your past what you thought you’ve done the infrastructure that you’ve built to let yourself go [Music] we are not our feelings we are not our patterns those are things we might identify with we’re not taught and so when I see a pattern it doesn’t work I don’t think the person’s broken I don’t think anybody’s broken I’m not here to fix people but I am here to break up the patterns that don’t work I might be wrong in what I say okay I might be wrong in the things I do in my life and the business that I started my families told me not to start every business that I’ve been involved in every one of them every one of them was a risk everyone on my handed shake take a chance I remember my mom used to tell me I wouldn’t do that if I were you I wouldn’t do that if I were you I wouldn’t do that if I were you I’m like mommy you wouldn’t do anything well you wouldn’t do anything except be the mother a great mother to five children my mother was an entrepreneur she didn’t have my dreams just because she’s my mom doesn’t mean she dreams like me would you agree okay my mom was wrong about everything she told me not today love my mom to death okay unbelievable friend of mine she was wrong I needed to do those things okay Steve Jobs needed to build this fountain would you agree did he help a lot of people did he make some money while he was doing 119 billion dollars in five years have the conversation with the person that’s holding you back the reason most people who are listening right now we’re not doing that thing is they’re worried about the opinion of somebody usually their mother usually their father and the reality is is that your spouse may be the person holding you back and you have to have that conversation we have to get to a place where you’re doing you because the number one thing that scares them out of me is regret and you’re gonna sit there at 72 and you say I wish I wish I wish it’s it’s it’s looking yourself in the mirror and saying like am I doing this right so to me there’s so many people there talking about how big of an entrepreneur they’re gonna be and how much they’re gonna achieve and they don’t work on weekends you know I worked every Saturday of my twenties like then I talked to 20 year old entrepreneurs every single day lately I’ve been saying to them this Saturday you’re gonna have more time off than I’ve had in my entire 20s on a Saturday so like before you tell me how you’re gonna be bigger than me start thinking about what you’re actually doing ask yourself am i practicing self-discipline in my life am i doing the things that I should do because I need to do them or have I kind of waiting to feel the moment make a damn schedule and stick to it it’s not a bloody prison that’s the first thing that people do wrong is well I don’t like to have follow the schedule it’s like well what kind of schedule are you setting up well I should I have to do this then I have to do this then I have to do this you know and then I just go play video games because who wants to do all these things that I have to do it’s like wrong set the damn schedule up so that you have the day you want you are what you consistently do if you look at your calendar you look if you’re doing on a daily regular basis that is what’s going to determine your future path so if you eat one chocolate bar but the rest of your day is pretty healthy you’re gonna be a healthy person but if you’re eating junk and more junk and then feed some than Burger King and more burgers and more jug afterwards and then you can one piece of broccoli listen you’re gonna be healthy working out once won’t make a big difference for you working out three times a week or working out every day you’ll see changes in your life you are what you consistently do want to be in the game read the average American reads one book a year the top CEOs in America read five books a month 60 plus books here but immerse yourself with books audio video daily okay you hit all three of those when I’m reading something listening to something and watching something these are completely different ways to learn find YouTube channels that are good for you if you work your ass off fully focused you’re trying to serve some larger than yourself and you really are executing what works you need a little grace might want to call it luck if you prefer God the universe but it’s there and we got a whole chief but I think the more important skill if you ask me is to have an extraordinary as the art of fulfillment and it’s an art it’s not a science because there’s a science to making money I don’t care who you are if you do certain things you’re gonna have too much financial stress you do other things you’re gonna have an abundance there’s a science there’s a science to your body everyone here is biochemically different different genome but there’s certain fundamental patterns that if you and I follow them you’re gonna have tons of energy gonna feel good if you break them you’re gonna pay the price and have low energy or disease but fulfillment is an art what’s going to fulfill you is different than that person actually you’re not gonna learn that from anybody else and you got to find it because success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure you owe you an explanation you need to look at yourself in the mirror and say why are you only giving 50% what’s wrong with you you need to put yourself on punishment you need to tell you no more TV no more snacks no more desserts no more no we working out now no no more alcohol not right now not no I can’t handle it right now you need to tell you that you owe you so you’ve never looked at yourself in the mirror and said you let you down until you get to that point you let you die you’ve never you’re not brave enough you want to put it on somebody else the reason why I’m not successful is because of my boss have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and said I’m not getting up on time I’m not going to work on time I’m not putting me in 120 percent when I’m at work I let me down what change I changed and I stopped being a victim I stopped saying I’ve gotta wait for good things to happen to me and I said I’m gonna ride I’m going to fight I’m going to work I’m going to press forward I’m going to learn I’m going to do everything in my power every single day I’m going to do everything in my power to become a Victor not a victim what do you want in your marriage what do you want with your son and your daughter what do you want in your help what do you want financially like how much money do you want to make a year what do you want to try how do you want to live that’s just waking up like an accident what do you want and then once you find out what you want spend the rest of your natural life waking up and going after it there is no excuse for not living up to the fullest potential no excuse I don’t believe in the word for crass the nation like I don’t really believe in that word I told the young lady in Australia who told me she’s a procrastinator I said look if I told you to meet me here tomorrow at 5:00 a.m. I’m gonna give you three million dollars where would you be she said I’ll be right there 4:59 ready to get that three million dollars I said so there’s no such thing as procrastination what it is is it’s not important to you right it’s not it’s not meaning for you to you it’s not it’s not something that’s urgent to you and when something is not urgent you put it off but if it’s not meaningful to you if it’s not important to you then you’re not gonna make it a priority so what you have to do is find out how can you make it meaningful how can you make it purposeful how can how can you make it stick and when you can find that out I promise you you’ll get up early you’ll get there first and you’ll do whatever it take to make that goal or reality so for me no such thing as procrastination is the such thing as it’s not a priority to you you
