Simply put, most people take the completely wrong approach to cutting the bullshit out of their life.
Everyone wants a simple answer.
Everyone wants to be told how to be successful, or lose the weight for good, or fall in love properly.
Because, at some level, they don’t want to think beyond their own confusion.
Or, admit the story they’ve created about themselves is delusional.
The truth is, if you’re miserable right now…
You’re probably doing what miserable people do.
You’re swimming in the sea of “let me tell you how bad I have it” mentality.
And it’s only slowing you down to a complete halt.
You have to do a cannon ball off the high dive and immerse yourself completely in your truth.
And then deal with your entire life from a new perspective.
Yes, your entire life.
Not just the parts that are a little fucked right now.
Whatever life-sucking situation is gnawing at the pit of your stomach, at least one thing is clear…
Most people are painfully ill equipped to handle the shitstorm that can happen to any of us.
Like searching for the one-size-fits-all solutions on Instagram or burnout retreats.
Let’s be clear.
That’s not how high performance mindset works.
The truth is:
Doing the real work that makes you feel like an outsider…
…allows you to shake hands with yourself for the first time.
A proper discovery that invigorates an otherwise numb existence.
I live my life totally, wholly, and completely by the tactics and principles I teach you.
Does this make me a magical unicorn constantly in touch with all things brilliant?
Just like you I get challenged and pissed off and confused.
But, do you know what?
My life WORKS!!
It’s time to eliminate the “let me tell you how bad I have it” mentality.
And do the real work that makes you feel like an outsider.
If you’re not making EXCELLENCE a non-negotiable in every single area of your life…
Don’t act surprised when the life you want doesn’t materialize.
Think about that the next time you start to whine about “poor little me.”
