Everyone has their moment of clarity. That moment when they think to themselves: THE TIME IS NOW. The time to start living is right now. The time to take total control over your life.
My moment of clarity came to me a few days ago.
Once it hits you, its the most liberating feeling you’ll ever experience. It’s the true realization, that no one is responsible for the outcome of your life except for you.
You may have entertained this thought a time or two, but what I’m describing is that moment when you actually internalize it and believe it on a deep, core level.
Be at the cause of your life, not at the effect. Stop blaming other people and circumstances for what you haven’t achieved.
The fact of the matter is, if you really want something bad enough, you’ll move mountains to make it happen.
When you set your mind to something, there is almost no force on earth that can stop you.
What is it that you want? What is it that you want so badly that you feel like you need it. You feel like a rabid dog that desperately needs a vaccine.
There is so much I want to do, so many places I want to see. I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, freedom, and travel. I have an unquenchable thirst to build something. Something big, something that will leave my mark on this world.
I am doing the necessary things now, to ensure that I’ll have all of these in the next 5 to 10 years. And it certainly won’t stop there. I have a vivid vision in my mind, that I think about on a daily basis, of what my life will look like when I’ve attained all this.
You outta try this sometime, it doesn’t feel half bad. I wake up every day ready to kill.
Your deadline (timeline) is crucially important when it comes to vision you have for your future. Deadlines produce results. Without a personal deadline, you don’t have a vision, you have nothing.
I’m not a normal person, never have been. I want more out of my life than what the average man is complacent with.
No one is going to stop me, and no one should stop you either. If this is hard for you to identify with, then its obvious to me that you haven’t had enough self-reflection. You haven’t been focused enough on yourself, you’ve been allowing yourself to be consumed and distracted by other people and influences.
The most common ways people distract themselves nowadays is with social media. Always trying to live up to an image, being all consumed with what other people think of you and how they perceive you.
What about what YOU think of you, and how YOU perceive you? Why has that gotten lost on everyone?
NEWS FLASH: It does not matter what other people think of you, it only matters what YOU think of you.
NEWS FLASH: Being selfish is not a bad thing. Not having yourself figured out, before you put all your attention into others, is going to hurt other people more than it will help them.
Let me repeat that:
You can help more people, and on much grander scale, if you have full clarity of who you are and your life’s purpose. And NOT having this is going to hurt people.
It’s going to cause confusion and produce wasted time.
If you don’t know who you really are or what your life’s mission is, stop focusing on other people and start focusing on you.
You’re just doing everyone a disservice.
Believe you have the ability to change lives, because you do.
People may think I’m delusional, and maybe they’re right, but only delusional people are the ones who accomplish extraordinary things.
They have the ability to see what others do not see, and they have the vision that others do not have. Steve Jobs had a vision, so did Mike Zuckerberg, Michael Phelps, and Ray Kroc.
They had vision and they became obsessed with their vision. They became unreasonable towards their vision.
Be a visionary, redefine your life. Who you were yesterday no longer defines you, you define you, starting right now, today.
Give yourself a new lease on life, if you don’t have a moment of clarity, then CREATE A MOMENT OF CLARITY.
That’s what you guys don’t realize, you don’t just have a moment of clarity, you create one for yourself.
You just have to do what I always say to do, which is live intentionally. Live with purpose and intention.
Start taking full personal responsibility for your life. Nothing will happen to you, dawn on you, or fall upon you, until you take daily and even hourly action towards living intentionally.
Give yourself a new lease on life.
Until we meet again,
