You probably wake up every day going to a job that you hate, every day, busting your butt to make another company rich. You're doing something every single day that you probably wouldn't be doing if you had the choice. You have to do what you love. You have to think outside the box. Our time on this planet is limited. A good question to ask yourself is, Are you living, or are you just alive? Take the word "excuses" and put it in the trash. You probably have a dream of something that you want to accomplish, and if you want to be good at it, keep doing what you're doing. But if you want to be great, then pay attention.
If you want to become great at it, then take that television set of yours and abolish it. Those friends that you hang out with all the time that have no ambition, no plans, no goals—cut them off. Get up one hour earlier each day, and go to bed one hour earlier each day. Read and study every single day. I didn't say three days a week; I said every single day. Find the top 10 books in the field in whatever you wanna become great in, and read those books. You don't need to go read a thousand books, just read those 10 books a thousand times.
I believe deeply in my heart that we should spend the time here on this planet doing what we love to do, doing what our heart leans towards. And it wouldn't really be considered work because we love it and we enjoy it, and we probably would do it—regardless if we got paid or not. And if you were a millionaire, you probably still would be doing it today because you love it so much, and you know what that is. Are you doing that today?
You might be at a job today that maybe you just can't leave, and maybe you don't really have the time to go out there and really pursue your dreams, and really do what it is that you love. But this message is not for everybody. Not everybody is gonna have that passion, that desire, to do what it takes to get things done.
But me personally, the last job I had, I worked as a para in a middle school. I worked with a particular student, going...helping him from class to class, helping him with his work. And day by day, class by class, I sat there watching the clock, waiting for the bell to ring. Until one day, I sat in 8th period class watching the clock tick and tock, and I said to myself right there and then, "When that bell rings, I'm gonna get up, I'm gonna walk out, and I'm never coming back."
I decided that I was going to pursue my dreams. I decided that I was going to do whatever it took. It was a bold move, but everybody can't do that. Everybody won't do that, and I don't encourage that. But what I do encourage is having a plan. And we know a goal without a plan is a daydream. Snap out of it! Get focused.
If you stayed here to watch this video up until now, I'm talking to you. Do what the heck you need to do to accomplish your goals! Learn, study, to become great. And if you have a bill to pay and you have a family to take care of, don't make any unwise decisions by go quitting your job and having your family suffer. That's not what I'm talking about.
But what I am talking about is having a plan—between this time and this time, I'm gonna do whatever I need to do to become great, and at the end of that, I will become great. At the end of that, someone is going to pay me to do what it is that I love, and at the end of that, I can quit my job. And during this time, I'm gonna be learning and learning, and they say the more that you learn, the more that you will earn, and that's a known fact. I didn't just quit my job without a plan. You have to think, you have to plan, and you gotta do it. Just do it!
Some of you may need a year or two to plan or to make a decision. Some of you will make a decision before the conclusion of this video. But whatever decision that you decide to do, make sure you use wisdom, make sure you seek guidance. Seek guidance from someone who may already be doing what it is that you wanna do. Find a mentor. Find a coach.
If you need a coach, you can hit me up. I can't help everybody, but I'll do my best to help as many people as I can. You have to plan, you gotta be creative, you gotta be innovative. And you have to figure out a way to develop a strategy to earn some type of income while you break away from your current circumstances, so that you can quit a job, and go and pursue your dreams. But it's not gonna be easy.
This message is not for the simple. This message is for the go-getter. This message is for the hungry. This message is for those who are not gonna let anything get in their way of them achieving and accomplishing their goals. And if that's you, just do it! I believe in you! Somebody's life is gonna be changed today.
Like and share this message. Hit me up. Peace!
