MIND SHIFT – Best Self Discipline Motivational Speech
How many years ago did you come up with what you could and couldn’t do in your life? How many years ago?” Most people, if they really look at how they’re living their life today, it’s based on a set of standards, a set of beliefs that they made choices about 10, 20, 30 or more years ago.
Very often, we made decisions in our youth, or very young, about what to believe, about what we were capable of, about who we are as a person, and that becomes the glass ceiling, if you will, that controls us.
As Jack indicated, I was born in Miami, Florida, in an area called Liberty City in an abandoned building on a hard linoleum floor with my twin brother. We were six weeks of age we were adopted. When I was in fifth grade, I was identified as EMR, labeled educable mentally retarded, put back from the fifth grade into the fourth grade and stayed in that category until I got out of high school.
I don’t have any college training. But I met a high school teacher who one day changed my life. I was waiting on another student and when he came in he said to me, “Young man, go to the board “and write what I’m about to tell you.
” And I said, “I can’t do that, sir.” And he said, “Why not?” I said, “I’m not one of your students.” He said, “It doesn’t matter. “Follow my directions now.” I said, “I can’t do that sir.” He said, “Why not?” I said, “Because I’m educable mentally retarded.
” And he came from behind his desk and he looked at me. He said, “Don’t ever say that again. “Someone’s opinion of you does not have “to become your reality.” You don’t know what you can do until you try Always go to something bigger than yourself.
I’m wondering if you’ve been defeated because you have been giving yourself wholly to something that was too small to hold you Have you thrust yourself into a glass of water? Have you leaped off the diving board into a cereal bowl person? Are you not guilty of immersing yourself into things that were too small to hold your vision? So many times you’ve thrown big ideas.
As small people, you’ve given big commitment to cereal bowl people. And you’re trying to get your site back from a source. That’s too small to support what you’re willing to put in. Is your investment bigger than the bank? Is the reason you keep being disappointed by people is that you have wholly thrown yourself into something that was too small.
Are you trying to take a bath in a bowl? So what do you want? How do you act? Who are you? Make today count. Dream big. And never give up. If you really want to win, you’ll get unbelievable at getting people to believe you believe it.
You will be loaded with certainty, from product knowledge, to belief, to skills, and you will be completely immersed with, I believe, no B plan. No other plant, nothing out, completely immersed in it.
Aside from dunking a basketball or hitting a 100 mph fastball. These are things that are limitations to human beings, but average ordinary people every single day, succeed in the business of persuading people.
There is no limitation to be able to do it, except those things In order to be successful, you have to jump. It’s the hard part. You gotta jump. It’s like you stand on the edge of a cliff. In order to be successful, you got to jump.
Everybody in here got to jump If you don’t jump, you can’t be successful. Problem is, when you jump, you don’t know if the parachute is gonna open. So fear freeze issue. The fear fail, you’ve all heard all this stuff.
I just have a different way to put it. The fear failure did not want one cause of failure. It’s freezes you. But let me explain something to you. If you don’t jump, here’s the one thing that’s guaranteed.
When you jump, you don’t know if your parachute will open. But here’s is a fact. If you don’t jump, it ain’t opening for sure. It don’t open at all. There’s no chance of you enjoying the ride. In the process of working on your dreams, you are going to incur a lot of disappointment, a lot of failure, a lot of pain, a lot of setbacks, a lot of defeats.
But in the process of doing that, you will discover some things about yourself that you don’t know right now. What you will realize is that you have greatness within you. What you will realize is that you are more powerful than you can ever begin to imagine.
What you will realize is that you are greater than your circumstances, that you don’t have to go through life being a victim. You may think that something as small as being optimistic won’t change much about your life.
Have you ever heard this line? Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean the world isn’t out to get me. Now that may be a joke but many people believe the deck is stacked against them. People who are reverse paranoids otherwise known as optimists use the same consistent thinking but they believe that the world is plotting to do them good.
Everything that happens is pushing them in the right direction. This attitude breeds more good thoughts so why not practice to become a reverse paranoid? Start seeing obstacles as opportunities to grow and change.
When your presentation doesn’t get the sale see it as an opportunity to create a better presentation and become better at your job. See the task that gives you some power to change rather than the fear that makes you feel powerless.
Look for the seed of something better when everything is going wrong. Almost everyone sees getting laid off as a bad thing but even if you want your job to be over the end always feel sad and uninspiring.
The end of one job however always holds the promise of the new beginning, of the next job. If you look at it that way you’re focusing on what a reverse paranoid thinks about. Identify the great benefit in every event.
Soon you’ll start to see that good is not an accident but something you create with your attitudes. The way you begin each day, sets up the way you live each day. I mean, the Spartan warriors said it so well.
Sweat more in training, bleed less in war. And if you want to be, literally undefeatable in business, literally unstoppable in life, you really want to dial in your morning routine. And so you want to do things like starting the day sweating, because that releases BDNF, brain-derived neurotrophic factor, that repairs brain cells from stress.
You want to sweat because that’s going to increase your metabolic rate, which is going to give you energy. And we live in a world where energy is even more valuable than intelligence. You want to, in your morning routine, take the time to write in a journal, so you actually can detect your values, where you connect with your goals each day, get to know yourself even more, because awareness is the beginning of transformation.
And you want to get your morning routine right, so you take some time at the front-end of your day to learn, because as you learn more, you know you’re going to achieve more. And as you understand better, you can achieve larger.
When the result of the event has no impact on you. Both ways you’re blissed out. You’re a success. When the fruit of the action does not determine how you are it’s just that you do things because of the exuberance of what you do then you are a success.
The result may depend on variety of things. Results are not always yours. For any result to happen whether it’s in a game or in life situations there are various factors involved not all of it is in our control.
But what is in our control is either we did our best or we did not do our best. That’s in our control. As long as we’re doing that and whatever the result may be if you’re still blissed out that means you are a success because life cannot defeat you anymore.
As a generation if you create a Huge amount of positives a negative Will become small if you create huge amount of negatives. They will become big and positive will become small this whole life is There has never been a point any time and there never will be where everything is perfect Okay, there’s no such thing Because life is a possibility because it’s a possibility it cannot be perfect Doesn’t matter what we do is still something more to do always That is why it’s an endless possibility Striving does not mean.
I want to be a good man. Morally good, he’s only good for the society not good for the human being Yes If you are morally correct it’s good for people around you Because you contained But it’s not good for this life So this life needs a little different kind of nurture in that context How many people in this world are? Going to stop before you and may fall dead How many people in how many people will be set the seed that they will be striving to be a better life than the way they are right now a little higher expression of life This is all your focus should be
