Remember these 2 Muppets?? Don't be like them. They used to sit up there in the balcony mocking, criticising others, not participating themselves.
DON'T BE THEM. So many sit and critique instead of getting in the arena and living.
Be a participant in life not a critic, spectator, commentator or analyst. Step into your fears. Go out on a limb.
Stop worrying about what others might think or say and chase your dreams.
But it’s not just your mental state that you’ve got to think about. The people around you all have their own mental states too. And what’s going on with them has the potential to impact what you’re doing with your life.
Let me tell you a little story.
We’ve got an awesome TJM member called Cassie. She’s lost 20 kilos during her time with us, which is a massive achievement. I’m absolutely delighted to see her achieving what she wants out of life.
Now, Cassie told me a story about her daughter’s 18th birthday party.
Not a single person at that party commented on Cassie’s weight loss. Nobody came up to her to give her a high-five or a hug. Nobody told her how proud they were of the journey that she’s on.
Here’s the sad thing.
I'm not surprised.
Happy people will be happy for you when you do something amazing for your life....
So many people will tell you that it’s all about your diet. If you eat more of this and less of that and blah, blah, blah, you’ll lose weight.
And you probably will…for a little while.
Then something sets you back and you quit the diet. You’re right back where you started and you’ve made no meaningful change.
That’s because you haven’t changed your mental state.
And that’s what I want to talk about in this email. Losing weight, or achieving anything in life, is all about your mental state.
It’s what governs transformation and success.
And it’s really simple.
When we’re in a good mental state, we tend to make good choices.
And when we’re in a bad mental state, we make bad choices.
The trick comes in staying above the line and keeping yourself in a good mental state.
Now, what do I mean by that?
Imagine that something bad has happened and you’ve got to...
Buddhism teaches non attachment and this is paramount for success. Once the goal and deadline are set you must detach from outcome otherwise you will always sabotage yourself. Present in the process prevents overwhelm.
Care about the outcome... But not that much.
Define yourself by your actions not your achievements and ironically you'll achieve more. Happy Monday.
P.s. EGO does not allow you to detach from outcome. It validates itself with the result. Ego is the enemy to happiness, success and performance.
You have to do everything in just the right way to be happy with it.
But that’s what so many people aim for when they’re trying to lose weight or make any positive transformation.
It has to be perfect or it’s not worth doing.
You don’t go from zero to hero overnight.
I’m as susceptible to this drive for perfection as anyone. I play golf and I like to think I’m pretty good. But when I have a bad game, I get frustrated.
It wasn’t perfect in my eyes so it must be crap!
But that bad game shows me that I still have plenty to learn about golf. That’s an opportunity for me. It’s a chance to become...
1 million x YES to this.
Define yourself by your actions not your achievements. You will achieve more and find happiness, peace, gratitude along the way. Comparison is the thief of joy and it thrives on achievements. Focus on your actions, integrity, and the rest will come. Get aligned, stay aligned. Service not status.
A great day in Wollongong yesterday speaking to business owners about mindset. Terrific group, motivated and committed to growth.
The awesome thing about business and life is that the better you get, the better they get. But it all starts with awareness and ownership.
Don't follow the herd they're going the wrong way.
Get clarity on what you want and commit to the process. #business#keynotespeaker #mindset
That moment when you introduce your best mates to your new GF
@officialrichardobryan meet miss candy. @fifibi So much respect for this fella here. Incredible talent in musical theatre, acting and now business, you will not meet a more humble, grounded human.
The success I had went straight to my head. But not you. Regardless of what stage you were on around the world you kept it real. Proud to call you my friend.
24 years and we're just warming up brother. our best is coming.
Caught up with this legend and a horse!
@thegeoffjowett #humble #mateforlife
Take off the mask and show yourself. No-one's as good as they look but we're all much better than we think.
Vulnerability makes you strong not weak.
As a society we must stop putting success on a pedestal for the elite. Everyone has the same challenges, some people simply continue in spite of their imperfections.
The people you admire and see as rock stars of industry have just as many flaws as you, if not more.
Most founders I know (myself included) are eccentric and semi dysfunctional in the day to day world. Play to your strengths and know there is greatness in you.
