Hey Team!

I needed to write to you today....

We are surrounded.

We are surrounded by gurus, messaging, marketing, and agendas....

Hear me out.

When our confidence is down, are we strong or are we weak?

Weak.

After we get dumped in a relationship, lose a loved one, or have a loss of career.. or our worst quarter earnings in years, are we strong or are we weak?

Weak.

And what does weakness allow for?

Growth. Yes. (and I am a huge believer in growth!)

But, it also opens the door for opportunity. 

Your state of acute vulnerability can take you down some really crazy roads...

Now, for years, there have been individuals out there selling everything from "get rich quick" courses, to lose "10lbs in a week cleanses", to "divine spiritual awakenings".

I am warning you though... 

Rather than find your strength from an external person, course, or Guru seminar, first work to find your strength from within.

Here is why....

The messages out there are not always pure....

They are loaded with NLP techniques (Neurolinguistic Programming), designed to take advantage of your feelings and emotions to spark action.... (and in the course/guru game.. it is to buy something they sell)...

Now why am I telling you this today?

Simple.

I had a speech Monday in NYC to a Sales Team....

Sales (and life) is all about confidence....

And in speaking with the group.. I received a question that was Guru Laced..

Meaning, this young man read all of this Guru's books, and his entire thought process became that of the Guru... 

He lost his own thought process....

That is what drives me nuts...

Because, he no longer could articulate his core values, beliefs, and what he stands for in life and business....

He was reciting "what he learned" in the books, course, and podcast he took...

And when we lose our sense of self and autonomy, is that strength or weakness?

More Weakness.

Well I will tell you this....

The original you is a great thing...

You come with gifts, talents, and abilities that only you bring to this World...

You have a uniqueness unlike any other... you just have to have the confidence, self-belief, desire, and internal awareness to bring that to life...

Fear Nothing.

Work to be the best YOU that you can be.... but that does not mean reprogramming yourself so the true you disappears.... in exchange for the belief system and life of somebody else. 

Because if you do that, one day you will wake-up and realize you have built the wrong life....

And that would be tragic....

Stay Strong.

Workout.

Affirm Greatness for yourself every morning by telling yourself: I CAN DO IT.

Believe it.

Believe in yourself.

Never follow the crowd.

Let's GO!
