Break whatever it is you do into the smallest elements and try to win the element. Then you can win today.
Sorting through the hundreds of emails, I came across a James Altucher article about his interview with Tony Robbins. Lot’s of talk about energy levels, fulfillment, and well being. Don’t ask “how to”, ask “what and why”. An example, “Why are you getting out of bed in the morning? And what are you going to do about it?”.
Also, don’t negotiate with your mind.
He said to me, “what are the two things you are most worried about in life?”
No problem. I didn’t hesitate. “I constantly worry about going broke and that someone will cheat on me.”
He leaned forward.
“EVERYBODY IS WORRIED ABOUT THOSE TWO THINGS!” he said. “That’s not your worries. That’s the mind’s worries. It’s in everyone’s mind.”
Find things that are bigger than just you. Make those things your purpose. Your reason for living. They can change. But they will be the things that take you to freedom.
Not your mind.
And, he said, when I am afraid to do something, that’s when I do it!
Dad. They did it. Thank you for making me a fan from day one. Finally. @philadelphiaeagles #superbowlchamps #finally #thankyoujesus
It’s something my dad gave me, the love of the eagles, and I just can explain it. It wasn’t a tangible gift but something that I’ll carry forever. Because of him. And to have this happen the year after he died. I’m just overwhelmed with emotion.
Eagles going to the super bowl.
Ants don’t care about elections. Elephants don’t care about the after-life. Flowers don’t care if they fit in with a crowd. They just want the warmth of the sun to kiss them.
Fun read over here by James Altucher.
