Self-discipline part 1

5 powerful quotes from David Goggins. This dude truly inspired me.

#1 If you have ANY mental toughness, if you have any fraction of self-discipline; The ability to not want to do it, but still do it; If you can get through to doing things that you hate to do: on the other side is GREATNESS.

#2 Never let people who choose the path of least resistance steer you away from your chosen path of most resistance.

#3 The biggest thing is to stop thinking you deserve anything. You, me, or anyone else doesn’t deserve shit! So whenever you think you deserve a day off “just because”…rethink that shit! It’s that kind of attitude that makes you like most people.

#4 Most people who doubt you doubt you because they can never see themselves doing what you are trying to do.

#5 I’m different than most people… When I cross the finish line of a big race, I see people who are ecstatic, but I’m thinking about what I’m going to do tomorrow. It’s as if my journey is everlasting and there is no finish line.

You’re the problem AND the solution

Guys, another motivational. Here it comes!

Assume control over everything, cause:

Great news! Everything is your own responsibility, but the bad news… Everything is your own responsibility.

Have a blast of a day!

It’s 2018! New year, new surprises! Stop dwelling and start living!

 

What do you honestly love to do? Yesterdays excuse isn’t today’s excuse and tomorrow remains uncertain. Nothing stops you!

Ignite that inner-fire by trying over and over again until you get into a flow-state. Humans are creatures of habits. Make use of habits!

Personal growth is simply mind over matter: You’re most likely not a kid. That kid is long gone. Nobody can stop aging process. Even when time is wasted in some life-areas, life goes on. Take responsibility! It’s the key to winning! Hold back the sands of time. I’ve seen old people who look like they’re in their 20’s and some people in their 20’s complaining like a cranky grandma/grandpa.

A challenge for you and myself: Do what you love to do for 1 hour everyday. Put every distraction out of reach (shut any devices off). Focus entirely on 1 thing within that hour and everything else falls into place. Witness the birth of something awesome! Give it a go for 1 week to see if you’re getting into a flow-state.

Feedback and comments appreciated!

2018: Happy New Year! 32.850 days from 0 to 90 yr: It’s not too late!

Best wishes to you all!

Kicking off this year with the most memorable quote in my opinion from Steve Jobs. I hope it’ll ignite that inner fire deep inside your guts.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.

Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Memento mori = remind your own mortality. The opposite of seize the day, but with way more impact. The way I approach it is count the amount of days it takes from 0 to 90yrs old. Which adds up to a total of 32.850 days. I personally find that number pretty short! Realize how old you are now? I am currently 26 meaning I already lived at least 9490 days. How many of those days can I say I could’ve done more? Obviously most of them!

Don’t waste another day cause of reason x, y or z. We all have ups and downs. Like Steve basically said is we got nothing to lose. We are already blessed so much with food, a home, family, kids, love and what not that all of that is slowly disappearing from our life. You came into this world with nothing. You’ll leave it with nothing. One life-cycle is like a boomerang writhing your story from birth to death.

In between that boomerang throw there is aliveness. Sometimes you feel like you lost everything. Remind yourself that something still beats your heart. That something is still living you. Sometimes you feel like you got everything you want! But still feel empty.. Remember that you came here with nothing and leave everything behind. How you treasure you’re life and loved ones is up to you. However, 32.580 days from 0 to 90yr is hella short! Time is ticking. Let’s kick ass and enjoy a wonderful living!

Cheers guys!
