This is your only life.
It's too short to keep putting off doing what you want to do.
Live your life for you - not anyone else.
Regardless of how disciplined or motivated you are, if you are in a wrong environment, you will not get anything done.
Things change, plans fall through, and life happens.
Be ready and willing to pivot when chasing your goals according to what feedback you are getting.
I love reading... I love reading!
But too much reading and not enough doing is just like Binge-Watching YouTube or Netflix.
Read, apply and repeat.
You cannot pour from an empty cup.
So be selfish, fill your cup first and then you can be selfless and pour into others.
In the gym, your mind is telling you to quit the whole time.
By not quitting, you are building your mental fortitude and resilience in preparation for life.
The moment you stop learning, you stop progressing.
Acquire new knowledge, learn new skills, apply, progress and repeat.
Learn to recognize those that truly want the best for you and those who don't.
Cut the latter out.
Whether you are taking a new job, starting a new business or moving out of country.
Anything that has the potential to improve your life involves a risk.
Why do you believe something? Because your parents told you? Because the news told you?
Challenge what you believe, be willing to listen to opposing opinions and always be ready to learn.
Money can buy you time-freedom, location-freedom and most importantly the opportunity to do what you actually want to do.
Whether it's physical discomfort in the gym or mental discomfort while chasing your goals.
Embracing discomfort is the key to long term fulfillment.
No, really nobody has it all figured out.
Everyone is just blindly taking a step in what is hopefully the right direction.
Failure is nothing but a sign telling you which direction not to go.
Stop treating it like a never-ending red light.
Talented but not consistent? You'll fail.
Hard-working but not consistent? You'll fail.
So long as you have consistency - you'll win (eventually).
