Hope you had an awesome weekend....
The kickoff of Fall was amazing here in the NY area... with that little chill hitting the air...so refreshing!
Yesterday, I had the chance to speak with an auditorium filled with Athletes & their Parents in Scarsdale, NY....
I love speaking to these groups because the impact is really strong and powerful.
Athletes that are ALL-IN on getting better....
Parents that love their kids so much that they are looking for any vantage point they can gain to help their kids in their journey...
I shared with them 2-key lessons:
1. YOU are different.
2. YOU must be honest with yourself.
It is so important that we see ourselves as different.
Not that we are better than others... but different than others.
We have a plan.
We have a vision.
We are going somewhere.
We put others on NOTICE of there we are headed.
We begin moving towards that direction like a fast moving train.
We are different because most of the World does not thing like this.
They are conformists.
They see the World like everybody else... and therefore, they just spend their life emulating everybody else.
That is not you.
You are a non-conformist because you made the decision to live your life in the forward direction... approaching each day with vigor, fight, grit, and a singular focus (which is moving towards goal).
But, in order to do this... you have to cut the crap.
You have to be honest with yourself.... ALL THE TIME.
Really be honest.
Not hypothesizing on things that just are not true... or pondering false realities..
Being honest with yourself will allow you to continue your march in the right direction.... towards goal.
So, today, I want you to see yourself as DIFFERENT.
Be HONEST with yourself... what you want, where you are headed, what is important to you....
When you finally wake-up and see that you are not like everybody else... your action will emulate that new vision.....
So get out your pen and pad... and write down the 1-THING you are working towards.. the 1-THING that can light you up and keep you moving each day....
Then take action on it.
You are different.
You are honest.
