04 Feb How to Live on Purpose and Make a Contribution to the World
How to Live Life on Purpose.
I believe every single person in the world has the capacity to do something BIG.
I believe that if you have the desire and the drive, you CAN and WILL achieve something. I believe that you can achieve your desires, live your purpose, and make a contribution to the world.
Believe in the unbelievable.
History isn’t my favorite subject to study. Why? History is the study of things that have already come to pass. History makes us look at what has happened and say “of course that happened.”
In reality, History’s greatest accomplishments, only happened because people believed something to be true despite what “reality” said.
- Edison believed the world could be illuminated.
- King Leonidas believed his 300 warriors were greater than 1,000,000 Persian warriors.
- The Wright brothers believed they could conquer gravity.
If you desire to do ANYTHING in life, you must believe it is possible. You have to shut out all the naysayers and the negativity. You have to say NO to everything in life that isn’t a part of your vision of reality.
You have EVERYTHING you need to be successful RIGHT NOW. Because when you desire something, when you know, when you believe…
Everything that you need will come to you.
Success is first designed by your belief in yourself, and what you can do.
Start acting “as if.”
Acting “as if,” doesn’t mean to go out and buy the car, buy the house, and be stupid with your money. Acting “as if” means: “If I always do what I have always done, I will always be where I have always been.”
Acting means: to show up, to fight for your desires, to work day and night for it, to give up your luxuries in life, to sacrifice everything in the world to achieve your desires.
Because nothing in life, that is worth anything in life, is given to you. You MUST take action. You must strive harder than anyone else. You must become a bigger person, act in a different way, and create a new story for yourself.
You have to change your beliefs. You can download the free brain hacks to change your beliefs, here.
You need to fight.
Life isn’t going to hand you all your desires. You have to fight harder than anyone else. Life has a certain process that we all must go through to achieve our desires.
Life hit’s harder than anything else. Life asks you: “how much do you want this?” Life asks: “will this challenge break you?” Life want’s to see, “can I keep this person down?”
You have to look life in the face when it has knocked you down for the 100th time and say, “thank you. Give me another because you will never keep me down. I’ll learn from this and become stronger.”
When things don’t go right… when things are hard… when you are crawling through mud and eating dirt, You must fight. Fight for what you believe. This is what makes you.
The strongest steel is forged in the hottest fire.
“The strongest oak tree of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.” – Napoleon Hill
The best entrepreneurs have failed at least one business.
Don’t quit, don’t give up, don’t ever stop.
Become an overachiever.
Do you know what an overachiever is?
It’s someone who risks going too far, someone who wants to see just how far they can go. An overachiever is someone who doesn’t accept mediocrity. It’s someone who determines that they can alway improve, they eat, breath, and sleep a better outcome.
Become relentless. Make it a part of your DNA. Make it who you are.
Don’t let anyone out-work you. Don’t let anyone say they can do better. Make it an undisputable fact that you push yourself harder than anyone else can push you.
Do you know who looks down on overachievers?
Losers don’t like winners because it makes them look bad. It makes them feel bad and it makes them look in the mirror and hate what they see.
That isn’t your problem. Look yourself in the mirror with pride.
Every night when you go to bed, know that you did EVERYTHING you can today to achieve your dreams.
Celebrate your wins and be grateful.
What is the mark of success? Success is measured by the effect you have on others, and the effect you have on yourself.
Everything else is just smoke and mirrors.
Every day when you go to bed are you proud of yourself? Are you happy with your results, are you pursuing your dreams?
Steve Jobs said it best:
“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”
While you are pursuing your dreams you will have many victories. Some huge, astronomically big, and some microscopic in comparison.
You have to celebrate your wins big and small. A funny thing happens when you start celebrating your victories… especially the small ones.
When you get more victories, you program your brain to create more victories. Winning becomes a healthy drug that you desire to achieve. You start realizing the gifts and beauty of the world around you.
You find out all the things that are truly important to you.
If you have ever wondered how to achieve your desires, live your purpose, and make a contribution to the world. The process is quite simple.
- Believe in the unbelievable
- Start acting as if
- Fight for your dreams
- Become an overachiever
- Celebrate your Wins and be grateful.
