That Something Is You

You can be anything you want to be as long as you are willing to be something different than you are right now. You can’t be better and still do the same mediocre activities that make you good enough right now.

You can’t evolve, expand, and take your game to the next level if you’re not willing to dramatically change what you do.

You have to change before change happens.

Deliberate, uncomfortable change.

Not different excuses. Not better reasons. Not new ideas, easier challenges, or trendy schemes.

Real change. You have to do the hard things that you’re not doing right now.

On a schedule. Each day. Bit by bit by bit.

Not all at once. Not one sprint towards the finish line.

Continual, obsessive progress.

If you want to achieve something you have never had before, you must do something you have never done before.

And then keep doing it. Until it works.

That’s the secret to living a life without limits.

That’s the answer to your struggle to lead better, to get promoted, to make more money, to feel more successful, be more empowered, more positive, or whatever it is you want for yourself.

Something has to change.

That something is you.
