People need to understand that we were not put on Earth to be mediocre, rather you were made for more. Too many people live life in miserable mediocrity.
I’m happy if you have indoor plumbing, a roof over your head and you are paying your bills. It’s great that you have hot water, HBO, a cell phone, etc. All that is great and it means you are doing OK.
However, there is a much bigger world for you to explore and it exists so that you can experience it to your full potential. Don’t set the bar too low. Raise it up and try to do more.
One of my favorite quotes that former N.C. State basketball coach Jimmy Valvano liked to say was, “Every day ordinary people do extraordinary things.” He believed and that’s how he lived his life. I sincerely want you to take on that mindset because you can do extraordinary things if you decide to do it.
The Alliance does the “Do.” We sell, recruit and build. We limit the other “stuff” because it prevents us from getting things done … NOW.
One way to make sure you are focused on doing is by scheduling your minutes and hours. If you can break it down into small chunks of time and then do it when the time comes, your life will change forever.
Don’t just settle for good enough when you have the potential for greatness. What if you decide to become great? What if you know exactly what your purpose is and you run after it like a wild man with his hair on fire? Can you imagine the impact you could have on yourself, your family and people around you?
Each life has a plan even if we don’t choose to see it right now. If you can make a couple of minor adjustments then you could blow up quick with The Alliance. Now, if you want to win and win big, then you have to be on the field to make plays. Get in the game so that you have a shot to win.
Imagine this: what if you got less cynical as you got older? Most people get more cynical. Focus on the positive and keep turning it on so you keep going and doing. That’s stepping up even when you don’t want to. Don’t meander aimlessly through this universe.
We all have made mistakes in the past. Stop feeling guilty, forget about it and move on. Make up for it by doing something good right now. Believe it or not, there are people that believe in you more than you believe in yourself.
Life will always test you. You have to stay the course and keep trying harder. Can you start dreaming bigger than you ever have before? Can I challenge and encourage you to start dreaming bigger today?
The more that you do now, the more you will be able to do for others sooner. It starts with imagination and belief. You can have a great life. Believe. Act. Do. Get confidence, clarity and courage when it comes to what you do on a daily basis.
It’s natural to have fear and doubts, but that doesn’t mean you stop doing. You keep doing regardless of what your mind is telling you to be wary of when it comes to your goals and dreams. That’s operating out of faith and having the confidence to keep doing what you know is important.
Every Batman has a Joker. It happens in movies and in life. You have to keep fighting and keep moving.
