We can try each day to train our body to perform the most difficult feats. We can try and learn and speak a different language in less than a year. We can apply and hope to graduate from a top-notch college or university.
But we are forgetting one important thing. The mind. Nothing is possible without training the mind. You see the mind is the most complex yet fascinating part of the human body. Nothing can be accomplished without first convincing the mind. Plain and simple.
So what’s the difference between you and Oprah Winfrey, President Obama, etc? Mindset. That’s it. They have programmed their minds to see past the words no and I can’t and you will never to accomplish amazing things.
And don’t dare sit there and say, “I can never become famous like them. They have it all.” The point is not for you to be like them. The point is not to become famous, but for you to become the best version of you. Whatever that is. We weren’t created to follow in the footsteps of others. We were created to do what makes us happy and gives us a sense of fulfillment.
You want to become a dancer? Do it. You want to write a book? Start now. You want to become the greatest singer? Practice. The point is you must get it into your head that you want this more than anything. Then every morning when your feet hit the ground, tell yourself this: I am the best _________ and I am going to do more of __________ to get one step closer.
Try it for one week and tell me on Saturday whether you feel any differently.
What are you going to tell yourself today to make you that much better?
