“ The Problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies that they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than you knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you” – Neil deGrasse Tyson
Today learn something new. Today be a good person. Today make a positive impact.
Growth, wisdom, happiness, success, and everything else you want in life are not hiding from you; they are also not going to be handed to you. The second you realize you create the life you want the whole game changes. No circumstance, person, or magical success fairy is going to dictate how you’re life turns out and who you become. You’re life is in your hands and your hands only. So my challenge to you is figure out what it is you want out of life, make a plan, and put in the work, even if it’s something small every day.
A couple months ago I was talking to Ethan (co- owner of Third Eye Performance) about what I wanted out of my life and the more we talked about things we started to realise we have the same vision for our lives so we decided to stop talking about it, make a plan, and put it to action. Six months later Third Eye Performance is an official business, we have our first few clients, a podcast on the way, opportunities and events starting to line up for 2018 and we couldn’t be more excited. We had and are going to have some learning curves but one lesson I’m glad we learned early is the amount of opportunities given to you is directly correlated with the amount of work you put in. By no means are we where are striving to be, we are very much still babies in the business world, but because of the work we put in on a daily basis I know we are headed in the right direction. Hard work yields results and moves you towards your end goal; that’s not a theory it’s a fact .
