WAKE UP EARLY AND ATTACK THE DAY – New Motivational Video Compilation – Morning Motivation
why is it so important to get up early some of y’all don’t want it that’s why you ain’t got it i don’t sleep when i’m tired i sleep when i’m done the average millionaire wakes up at 4 00 a.m so it started off four o’clock in the morning where i’d start and i’d start with my cardio then i’d have breakfast and then i would go to the gym and then i go to work some of y’all have no idea what 4 a.
m looks like why would you not wake up at 4 30 because you’re too busy sleeping in i’m pretty sure i wake up earlier than all of you we don’t sleep when we’re tired we sleep when we are too busy hitting the snooze button multiple times excuses sound best to the person that’s making them up and if we can really be honest some of y’all don’t even go to bed until about 4 a.
m if you can get up before the rest of the world is awake right before the enemy’s awake you can get so much done you’re so much more productive stop feeling sorry for yourself wake your ass up and then they ask me well why are you up so early take responsibility to make your life happen awaken the beast inside wake up at 4 00 a.
m so i begin to tell myself there must be a reason when you have something to do when you have someone to love when you have something to look forward to when you get up in the morning see people who have something to look forward to don’t need an alarm clock because they have a reason for being you if you want to have one of the best lives in the world which is you live on your terms then you have to pay your dues to get there you’ve decided that you’re not going to allow your circumstances to define you you’ve decided that you’re not going to allow the events the things the people life determine who you become you got a problem with your life you got a problem with your environment do something about it if you want more freedom in your life you have to have more discipline if you do what is easy your life will be hard but if you do what is hard your life will be easy you decided that you’re not going to go through life being a whiner being a complainer that you’re going to take responsibility for what it is that you want to create the greatest ability that god has given humankind above the animals is the ability to choose i remember years ago when the alarm used to go off in the morning the first thing i did was roll over and hit the snooze button in that instant where you have a choice a choice to either hit the snooze button and go back to sleep in your nice warm fluffy cozy bed or open your eyes and get out of bed that’s a choice that takes discipline now i didn’t have any discipline i always took the easy route the road that was more comfortable the problem is when you make this decision because it’s the first decision that you make literally the second you wake up you are letting yourself off the hook you are literally training your mind to take the easy way out throughout the whole day which in turn leads to you taking the easy way out the whole month all year discipline is not something that any of us are born with it’s a muscle that we have to train and i don’t care what anyone says it all starts at first second how you start your day and that decision that you make in that instant isn’t as small as just getting up a bed or not it’s a decision that can shape the rest of your [ __ ] life this ain’t some motivational inspirational [ __ ] this is the truth when i was younger i dreamed that one day i’d get a job that paid me 50 grand a year that for a boy where i come from was a dream come true if you told me back then that i’d be running a seven figure company and building a business of my own i would have laughed in your face it wasn’t until i started to believe that i and i alone could shape my world that i started achieving anything i wanted to that little decision in the morning if you open your eyes and get out of bed the next decision you face that day you’re gonna now be disciplined to not take the easy way out people don’t realize it but that bed can basically represent your entire life if you stay in that bed you’re literally staying in your comfort zone which means your day will be spent in your comfort zone and your month your year and before you know it you spent your whole life in your comfort zone never pushing yourself to new heights never trying anything new taking risks moving forward it all starts in that first second of your day so don’t take it lightly start building discipline it’s something i started doing and it helped me massively it ain’t easy but it’s worth it start your day with intention today i will be present today i will be kind today i will be the example i expect of others today i will give my all in every moment it’s all about intention when you direct your focus to the good you will see more good if your focus is directed to the stress and struggle you will see more stress and struggle if you want to be really happy give thanks that’s the secret happy people are grateful people so spend time in gratitude spend time in intention and expectation for what a great day today is going to be feed your mind with something positive read or listen to something uplifting something that will grow your mind or spirit you attract your intentions you attract your beliefs you attract what you feel so get up and feel good when you direct your focus to the good you will see more good if your focus is directed to the stress and struggle you will see more stress and struggle that is your only job get up and get yourself feeling amazing ask yourself how can i feel great today how can i grow today how can i make others feel great today open your eyes to the magic around you i guarantee you you have been missing out on miracles because you have been lost in the stress and noise inside your head get out of your head and get into the magic of life today is a new day a fresh clean canvas you can paint whatever you want on that canvas no matter what happens you are the artist add some color some joy some life to your canvas leave nothing off that canvas as soon as you get up in the morning ask yourself what’s really important today is it important that i rush around stressed at everything i have to get done or can i just enjoy this moment can i set the tone for the rest of my day you decide what kind of day you will have not what happens but how you will respond to everything that happens you can respond positively to any situation will you respond with presence will you see the good will you find a way around the obstacles will you write your own story or will life write it for you i’m here to tell any of you in here if you’re battling if you’re struggling you’ve got to know when to cut anchor and go all about your life because you can’t be letting people live rent free up here you can’t be letting people hold you back and who you surround yourself with matters change isn’t heaven by accident change takes intentional choices to be different don’t pursue the prophets of where can you gain things in life pursue your passions and your purpose you need to take time to figure out your why when you want this thing as bad as you want to breathe that’s when you find a way you need to take time to figure out what you’re passionate about because if you pursue your passion i promise passion and purpose will always produce gains and profits socially emotionally and financially it does not take talent you don’t have to be talented right you don’t have to be gifted you don’t have to be the quickest the strongest you don’t have to be the most intelligent to get to where i am i promise you if some of you will just begin to take ownership of your life and some of you probably are already striving and doing phenomenal and making good choices i want to say keep going don’t give up keep pursuing it because i promise you every single one of you were meant to leave your fingerprints on history that’s what you gotta do you just gotta grind though you’re grind you gotta out grind so many of you heard me say this your father listen to me my own accompany your mama might be a millionaire you might come from privilege your daddy might hook you up with a car he might know people he might be able to get you a job but you will not outwork me and not a teacher a counselor or principal nobody can stop you i know your circumstances aren’t the best i know sometimes our home environment’s not the best but this is what i know we’re in control of our lives and nobody can take it from you but what you cannot do is you cannot quit doing the process you cannot give up because it ain’t what you see you cannot give up champions keep going when they don’t have anything left in their tank if you will be a champion if you will be a beast you won’t have to go through something one two three one two three one two three all right great listen to me and i don’t owe anybody an apology our circumstances your current surroundings never have to dictate who you are you’re not what your surroundings are you are what you do and this is the fact of the matter normal regular people just like you and me can do extraordinary things and it’s not about the glitz and the glamour and the shine it’s not about what we have it’s about our heart man it’s about people you and me understanding that we are fully capable we have the full potential to achieve and become anything that anybody else is and the only person that’s going to stop us and the only person that’s going to rob us is when we look in the mirror and we compromise us i live with these three principles and i promise you man they will change everything about who you are hard work works make good choices and value people i decided 10 years ago literally when this all happened and i went to prison i wanted to be i was like you know what i want to make this promise i want to keep it to this family i come from a lot of brokenness i don’t know where to start but what i do know is the importance of the choices that i make and so literally i wrote the word change the world and i slapped it on my little prison cell window and every single day i woke up and i realized make good choices great things happen as you go into the next chapter don’t pursue prophets pursue purpose listen to me very closely it’s our dream nobody’s gonna see it like you do it it’s your dream nobody’s gonna feel it like you feel it it’s your dream nobody’s gonna be as dedicated to it as you are it’s your dream and they don’t have to understand and they don’t have to like it and they don’t have to do it it doesn’t make a difference it’s your dream and you my friend have been given the task to make it happen and you can’t let anything stop you from doing what you were called to do when i believed that my voice was needed in this world when i believed that i needed to be on the stage not for myself but to speak to a group of people who come from where i come from a working class who don’t know what it’s like to make millions and millions of dollars who don’t understand what wealth looks like that i needed to come in the room with a single-parent mother with a father not in my life being homeless in a high school dropout only somebody who comes from where you come from can tell you you belong and i had to get my butt on stage because there’s some folks that les brown can’t reach there’s some folks that tony robbins can’t read there’s some folks that only i can reach and so i need to be on the stage with them doing what i was called to do you can show me your friends and i can tell you who you are who you surround yourself with is it going to affect you like it love it or leave it if you’re surrounding yourself with people who are not about the right who aren’t trying to pursue dreams and goals and the same aspirations and the same motivations and dedications and determinations as you you will be affected who you surround yourself with matters it’s the compromise that i care about we don’t ever have to compromise ourselves i promise you from the front the back to left to the right every single one of you in here man you are born to leave your fingerprints on history you can achieve and become absolutely anything i mean teachers and doctors and actors and athletes entertainers and musicians and radiologists and cardiologists and cosmetologists social workers i’m telling you anything that you want too often we as young men and women women and i was so guilty of this we only care about the now and this and what feels good here and what feels good now and we will compromise who we are because we want the acceptance of the people around us you have an opportunity right now that you will never have people say why you grind so hard i might not be the number one motivational speaker in the world five years from now i gotta get everything i can get right now every book i can write listen to me my school is being paid for by the athletic department i’m hot right now a real man in the dark when nobody’s watching he putting in work a real man when coach ain’t even watching he’s studying film on his own because he’s and he loves the process because real lions like to hunt they love the process just as much as they love the prize and some of y’all just want to score you don’t like the process you’re not in love with the process you just like to put the pass on you love when it’s showtime everybody in the crowd you’re like hey come on can you see you can’t even start until you know your people there once you see them you’re like show time day after day half the day grind have to grind have to grind airport at the airport driving mob after my et aren’t you tired yes i might be i don’t know e.
t aren’t you ready to take a break yes i might be but listen to me i can’t why because i grind for jaylen i grind for jada i grind for dede i grind for my mother are you hearing what i’m telling you i grind for vanessa i hustle for so the days i want to hit that alarm clock i think about my why i can’t quit my son 25 000 a year i can’t stop he counting on me my daughter i can’t quit i can’t stop i can’t get tired i can’t give up i can’t give in my mama counting on me my wife is counting on me uh yeah i might be different but i am brilliant yep i might be loud but i am special we can go from being homeless in high school dropouts to having phds writing books and becoming the voice of a generation we can do whatever we believe we can do and we don’t need anybody’s permission to do it but ours i am phenomenal and i don’t owe anybody an apology i am going to do great things and i don’t owe anybody an apology i am i was created to be great i was created to do great things i was created to have great things and i will no longer ask others for their permission make good choices great things happen you see every choice that i can make listen i i can’t control what you think about me i can’t control your opinion of me i can’t control what you say about me but i control how i react respond to what i do with my life i’m in control of my life i don’t let external factors control me i’m in control of my life because sometimes life can be tough life can be challenging and sometimes the obstacles in front of you seem like they’re too big and it’s easier just to lay down but you know what i remembered i remember when my dad used to look at me and the kids said listen nathan life is never going to give you anything but if you make it if you build it nobody can take it from you because hard work and tenacity and refusing to quit and chasing your dream you’ll get there i promise you maybe you don’t hit the starters who land on the moon you just don’t give up and you go after and you stop caring about the opinions of people around you stop blaming everybody from your hurts take ownership of your life take off your mass don’t feed the bear make good choices be a best friend encourage somebody be a voice of hope and inspiration and that’s just real man this is your moment how many times have you said i know i need to do better but you don’t how many times have you got on a scale and weighed yourself but you wasn’t happy how many times have you pulled up those pans and they just didn’t fit right how many times have you said you could not stop eating a certain type of a food but you kept doing it anyway you see my friends that’s an excuse you’re looking for a way out you’re trying to find an idea and saying hey it’s okay for me to keep making this type of a mistake it’s okay for me to keep saying the same thing over and over it’s okay for me to sound like a broken record with a hole in it but nevertheless i haven’t put myself in a position to change you know you can do it but you just don’t want to do it you figure that hey i’ll do it on another day i’ll do it tomorrow i do it on this day i do it on this day i know i know i know i know you know so much but you do so little are you understanding that you cannot remain the same do you understand that you’re gonna have to continue to as i like to say evolve evolving to me means a lot more than just changing change is good but are you changing for the right reasons or you’re in a certain position where you feel like you have to change yourself or change who you really are to please other people that’s not the type of change i’m talking about i’m talking about for the greater good i’m talking about being able to have the right attitude and the right mindset and the right fortitude to make a difference in your life you can’t keep doing the same thing over and over and over again and you’re not getting anywhere you’re not committed you’re not doing the right things instead you keep doing the wrong things and you’re looking for someone to rescue you you’re looking for someone to put you in a position to make you feel better it’s not about me it’s not about the other people it’s about you it’s about you making a difference and you making the necessary changes to get what you want out of your life the time is now you can’t do it tomorrow you can’t do it yesterday you got right now build on that find a solution to your problems don’t depend on other people to change you don’t depend on other people to evolve you being different as i’ve always said there’s nothing wrong with being different stand out in the crowd don’t be like everybody else don’t feel that you got to belong to a group of people for people to respect you if you don’t like where you are then you must change what you do but not just change start evolving evolve into something that’s unique become something great believe in yourself and understand that it takes work and it takes an idea and you have to understand that there’s going to be some sacrifices that you must make so when are you going to make a change when are you going to finally realize that it’s up to you what you need to be focusing on as a better life a better understanding a better you and if you’re not willing to work on that if you’re not willing to change that then how strong do you really think you will be in the rest of the life that you’ve been given i was in a tough position 19 years old kid on the way earning 27 pounds a day i could have chose to focus on all the problems i was gonna face all the pain instead i decided to change my stars i decided to say enough was enough and focus on ways to change them it’s easy to say that i’ll try that thing tomorrow or i’ll do that tomorrow one day i’ll get in shape one day i’ll tell that person how i feel one day i’ll start that business one day i’ll leave this job one day i’ll leave this abusive relationship we’ve all had times where we find ourselves constantly telling ourselves that one day we’ll do that thing the problem is we look at all these opportunities around us and we say they’re risky what you’ve got to realize is life in itself is risky it ain’t important how long you live what’s important is how you live when life gets on top of you and you feel like it’s all becoming too much it’s easy to let things spiral out of control i’ve been there that place where you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders things don’t go your way that promotion at work you don’t get you don’t make the team that person you asked out said no your business is struggling the bills are piling up we all go through dark times my advice to you is to focus on finding the light i’m here to talk about success the first rule of success is to have a vision you see if you don’t have a vision of where you go and if you don’t have a goal where you go you drift around and you never end up anywhere i mean as you know i was born in 1947 in austria after the second world war so i was very fortunate that i stumbled under my vision and i didn’t really like austria when i grew up i couldn’t wait to get out of there i couldn’t see myself becoming a farmer or a worker in a factory or anything like that even though my parents wanted me to stay there and have a normal life but that was their vision not mine my vision was totally different i felt that i was born for something special for something unique for something big then one day i went to school i remember was 11 years old and they showed a documentary about america and there they showed this documentary the huge skyscrapers the high-rises the huge bridges the six lane freeways and all of this toughness and myself that’s where i want to be i don’t want to be around here with these little farm houses and these little buildings i want to be in america one day after school i walked by a store in graz so i went inside and i looked around and then i saw a magazine it’s a bodybuilding magazine that had reg park on the cover ridge park was then a three-time mr universe and i saw him on the big screen as hercules i read that and i said to myself wow this is the blueprint for my life this is exactly what i want to do i want to become a bodybuilding champion just like rage park i want to get into movies just like rage park and i want to make millions of dollars and be rich and famous just like reg park you know how great it felt that i knew where i was going imagine the majority of people don’t know where they’re going i knew where i was going that i’m going to become this bodybuilding champion just like him so it was just a question of how do you do it i was so relieved because when you have a goal when you have a vision everything becomes easy so people always ask me when they saw me in the gym in the pumping iron days they said why is it that you’re working out so hard five hours a day six hours a day and you have always a smile on your face and i told people all the time i said because to me i am shooting for goal in front of me is the mr universe title so every rep that i do gets me closer to accomplishing that goal to make this core this vision turn into reality every single set that i do every repetition every weight of the lift will get me a step closer to turn this goal into reality so i couldn’t wait to do another 500 pound squat i couldn’t wait to do another 500 pound bench press i couldn’t wait to do another 2 000 reps of sit-ups i couldn’t wait for the next exercise with the age of 20 i went to london and i won the mr universe contest as the youngest mr universe ever and it was because i had a goal so let me tell you something visualizing your goal and going after it makes it fun you’ve got to have a purpose no matter what you do in life you’ve got to have a purpose 74 percent hate their job in america now there’s not much different when you come to europe the majority of people don’t like what they’re doing because they’re really not doing it because they didn’t have a gourd and they followed the score they just aimlessly drifted around and then all of a sudden there’s a job opening so they get their job because you have to work but then when you work it’s a chore it’s work it’s not fun so if you think about only a quarter of the people really enjoy what they’re doing in life that is unbelievable if you think about it so i felt so blessed that i knew what i was doing it’s like a medical student that studies and knows he wants to become a doctor you know where to go and the same thing is also in politics i remember that in politics i had a very clear vision that i will be the leader of california this is as far as i could go because i was not born in america so i could not run for president so being the governor of the fifth largest state of i should say the largest state the fifth largest economy in the world was for me really the ultimate title the ultimate accomplishment in politics so even though people came up to me and says why don’t you go and run for something smaller you’re never gonna make it i ran for governor and then two months later i became governor of the state of california again because i had a very clear vision what i’m gonna do with california [Applause] so that’s rule number one have a vision rule number two is don’t listen to the naysayers don’t listen to the naysayers [Applause] everything i ever did the thing that they heard out of people’s mouth was that’s impossible that can’t be done or no that is exactly what i heard and of course i proved to the people that it can’t be done so whenever someone said to me it can’t be done i heard it can be done when they said no i heard yes and when they said it’s impossible i heard it is possible i’m a strong believer what nelson mandela said that everything is always impossible until someone does it well i’m gonna be the one that said to myself i’m gonna do it and i’m gonna show it to them maybe it has never been done before that’s perfectly fine with me but i’m gonna do it and i did not listen to the naysayers it’s all about the hard work that you put in i said i must have been bodybuilding i worked out five six hours a day i’m gonna do the same thing now for acting and of course i went to college to study english i studied the accent removal acting classes and all of this stuff all day long i worked and i worked and worked and within a short period of time i made one movie called hercules in new york which of course went right into the toilet but it didn’t discourage me i still had the same vision and then all of a sudden i did streets of san francisco i did stay hungry and pumping on and the villain and then all of a sudden i was asked by dino de laurentiis and the universal studio to star in conan the barbarian and after i did conan the barbarian the director at the press conference said to the press the director was john millius he said to the press if we wouldn’t have had arnold we would have had to build one so think about that [Applause] the very body that they said can never be sold because the time is wrong a few years later i’m doing conan the barbarian and it was the number one hit at the box office when it came out in the summer of 82.
think about that and the director says if he wouldn’t have had his body we would have had to build one so all of a sudden my body became an asset not a liability and the same thing was with terminator after people finished filming terminator jim cameron said to the press if arnold wouldn’t have had that accent and talk like a machine i think the movie wouldn’t have worked so think about that the body and the accent that they attacked was an asset but i didn’t listen to those losers i didn’t listen to them at all it’s just the reality of it is that you cannot listen to the naysayers so this is a very important lesson for all of you so when someone says no this is a stupid idea you in your mind you don’t have to say it but you need mind just say this of you you’re so what do you know [Applause] you
