Hard Times ► Motivational Video
Where have you been?
Why are you here?
And Where are you going?
You look at your life…you look at what you produce…
…is it giving you what you want? Are you living your own purpose? Are you living your dream? Are you acting on your ideas?
Are you doing all you can do? Have you gotten comfortable?
Are you procrastinating? Are you invading your own greatness? Are you surrounding yourself with people that can en-nourish you?
Are you challenging yourself? Are you experimenting? Are you learning something different?
Is your life an adventure or is it boring?
Why are you here? What brought you here? Investing the time, the money?
What brought you here?
What decisions are you making, right now, as you look into your future?
Where are you going with your life?
I don’t care how hard you fail. I don’t care how many times you fail the test. I don’t care if nobody believes in you.
It only takes you to believe in yourself to get this thing done.
As long as you believe in you…you got the right mind set…you got the right attitude, you can have whatever you like.
But if you fall…I need you to fall forward.
I need you to fail forward.
Are there going to be some moments where you want to give up? Yes.
Will there be some moments when its going to seem like it’s impossible
the pain that you’re experiencing, the disappointment that you are experiencing that you’re going to say…It’s not worth it? Yes, that’s going to be…
…right there for you. Its going to be in your face. Telling you to go back?
But don’t let the distractions distract you. You gotta keep moving…don’t stop!
Separate what you do from who you are.
That’s what the guilt trap is all about.
All of us have made some mistakes in life. All of us have done some things…
…that if we had them to do over again we wouldn’t do it again.
There are a lot of things that if I had it to do over again…if I knew then what I know now…
I would have done it differently. Well, it didn’t happen that way.
A lot of us because of our limited vision of ourselves…A lot of us we begin to focus our problems
and enable them to overwhelm us…we begin to think that we have no options. We begin to believe that there is no way out.
We begin to believe that there is no way out.
You can always better your best. You can always go beyond anything that you have ever done.
And I`m saying that… The fact that you are still here…that you are still breathing…You have some more work
and you owe it to yourself, that when you get up in the morning that you can look yourself in the face and say….’Hey, I am living my life on my terms.
There are sometime in life where you fall down and feel you don’t have the strength to get back up.
Pretend that everything is OK when its not. And you go home and lay in your bed
when no one is looking at you and you don’t have to impress anybody.
And fear comes in. You know the fear that you have as soon as you walk into the doors of your house, maybe its a broken home.
Maybe you have doubt in your life.
Maybe you don’t know for sure what’s going to be happening in the future…and it scares you.
Maybe you are worried about what people think about you, what people say about you…
And that fear paralyzes you? And I just want to ask you…
Do you think you have hope?
Right now you`re at the worst place in you`re life that you`ve ever been…
I believe that this is your beginning, but this doesn’t have to be your end.
That just because you are currently here…this is your present circumstances…
that life don’t have to end for you right now.
What is it that will give you the drive? What is it that will ignite the courage in you to get up and come back again and again and again?
Your WHY! Your WHY is going to push you when you can’t push yourself.
When you want to quit and give up. Your WHY is going to give you that edge you need. That advantage you need…that lift that you need to get to the next level. YOUR WHY.
Yes we are tired. Yes, we’re hungry. Yes, the mind is saying give up. Yes, its saying quit.
But we cannot quit…Because we realize we have not reached the goal yet.
This is not what I said I was going to do. This is not what I talked about. This is not the goal. This is not what I dreamed about.
This is not the goal. This is not what I dreamed about. This is not what it looks like.
I will try 100 times to get up and if I fail 100 times
if I fail and I give up…
do you think that I am ever going to get up.
So I need you to believe.
But if I fail…I try again…and again…and again…for as long as I try there is always that chance of getting up.
You can decide that you are going to stand up to life.
It’s not the end until you have given up.
There is still hope.
You are going to work through this. You are going to get up. You’re going to get dressed. You’re going to get out and you’re going to do
what you’ve been called to do. You are going to be. You are going to have. You are going to prove to everybody that tried to break you…
everybody that tried to stop you…everybody that tried to kill your dream…
You are going to prove all of them wrong. I use the pain to push me to greatness.
And I am telling you right now…Don’t give up! I am telling you right now…Don’t give in! Get through it!
There is still time…as long as there is breath in your nostrils…as long as you can wake up in the morning..
…It matters how you will finish. Then you will find that strength to get back up.
“If you are still in the game…which means that if you’re in the game…
and there is still time in the game….there is still time left in the game…
then you can still win the game.
You can’t afford not be you. You cannot afford just to go to work just so you can get a check.
You cannot afford to not see what your greatest is. You cannot afford to not put your foot all of the way down and see what you can get out of life.
You can get knocked down, but you will not be knocked out.
I am going to empower me and all of these things that are happening to me right now…
They’re just temporary inconveniences. They’re not stronger than I am.
“You can’t afford not to be you.
You’re going through some hard times…? It has not come to stay…it has come to pass.
It takes guts to pick yourself up. It takes guts…You gotta dig down deep and gut it out and keep on going again and again and again.
Until you make it happen, because you know that it’s possible.
Maybe right now life’s got you up against the wall. You can’t give up. You can’t give in…
because if it was easy…everybody would do it. Because if life’s got you backed up…start fighting back.
If life’s got you knocked you down try to land on your back…because if you can look up…you can get up.
It’s necessary that you take responsibility. That you make it happen…
that you don’t give up. That you keep on keeping on. That you don’t decide that I can’t make it because I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
We have so much energy that can take us so far.
It’s necessary that you look up and put your money and your energy that can take you to the next level.
Just go out there.
It’s possible that you can get what you want. Its necessary if you want it you gotta go into action.
You gotta be willing to experiment. You gotta be willing to fail and to succeed.
Here’s your dream manifested. No, it`s hard. Yes, its hard.
Its difficult. That’s right!
And it’s worth it!
It’s necessary that you have a plan of action. That your resilient. That you stick to it.
That you have the vision and never give up.
That you become creative and relentless and keep on coming back again and again and again.
And that it’s YOU that you gotta take personal responsibility to make it happen.
And that it’s hard. Easy is not an option.
And when life knocks you down. Jump back up and say…’It’s not over until I win!
