I'm not a huge JAY Z fan. Don't know his music or follow his life but what I will say is this is the genius right here and great awareness from him.
THIS IS THE KEY. While those with more talent, gifts, skill hit road blocks and quit, some keep going. And they are the ones who make it.
You have to learn to love failure and recognise it as the catalyst for growth. You must fail lots to win. Failure shows you the path and eliminates what doesn't work.
If you find what doesn't work for long enough, you'll stumble across what does. After all, that's how wet got the light bulb. Don't romanticize success. Don't think it's meant to be glamorous. It's a shit fight right until the breakthrough.
I've been fortunate to have a high level of success and failure and seen some of my mates have success on a global scale. Here's what I know. It's always a giant shit fight, scramble, until the end.
Think of the elegant swan on the pond. So poised and composed on the surface but her little legs are going berserk underneath. That's success, right there.
The tragedy is we look at others and think they're got it nailed. Nobody's got it nailed. They just know the formula.
People look at businesses that are blowing up and receiving huge accolades in the press. But having created a few of these and seen behind the curtain in many others, it's always a shit fight in there for THE FIRST 10 YEARS.
Looks amazing, but it's chaos underneath. That's success. Know the formula. Unsuccessful people make the mistake of getting it right before they launch. When the reality is you only ever get it right by launching. FAIL FORWARD
How can we possibly build our best life, and self, without personal awareness? We can't.
That would be like trying to build a skyscraper on sand. You need a solid foundation and platform and that foundation is awareness of self.
Allow me to explain... I've got an addictive personality, doesn't matter what it is, I'll get hooked on it fast. Very hard to change this but with awareness you can navigate. I.e. So I don't drink alcohol anymore or dabble in anything that's not making me better. If I do, it's game over. Me trying to have one drink is like trying to defy gravity. It is what it is.
The key to happiness and success is being aware of self. With awareness you can then construct a success blueprint that works FOR YOU.
Without awareness you can never breakthrough because the math is flawed. You're working from a book of assumptions that aren't reality based.
Gratitude, service, love, purpose, humility, patience are all critical in the recipe...
These days there are more coaches than there are actual participants in the arena. Instead of getting out there and “doing” people are making big money “coaching” when they have never actually done the thing.
Call me old school but I believe to be a valuable coach you have to have lived and done what you are telling others, not just read the books and got the diploma.
I never set out to be a coach. I have been in the arena for over 20 years and I have had the big wins and the big fails. I think this is the best tuition of all.
Don't spend $200/hour on a life coach, business coach or “success” coach. Come and try The Jowett Method for $2 a session. That's right $2 a session.
LIVE interactive video coaching 2x a day. If you don't see the value and don't love it, I will refund you. Come join us!

We’re just starting to dig into 2019, so it’s the perfect time to sit back and think for a minute.
Here’s a question for you.
What are your values?
I want you to think about that right now. Think about who you are and whether your values align with the way that you’re living your life.
Here’s the secret.
Most of us aren’t aligned with our values. So right now, I want you to think about what you want to achieve in 2019. Yes, the present moment is always what’s important. But you’ve got an opportunity to wipe the slate clean here.
Forget about what’s happened in the past and start thinking about what your values are right now. Write them down so they’re always in front of you.
This is an awesome anchor.
If you have clearly defined values, it’s a lot easier to stay the course when you’re trying to lose weight.
It’s all about mindset here.
When you write your values down, you’re saying...
Have you ever found yourself looking at the people in your life and wondering where it went wrong?
Everybody seems so fake and insincere. Or, they’re toxic and negative. They’re not supporting you and you’re not supporting them.
It seems like you’re just in each other’s lives for the sake of having someone in your life.
There’s a reason for this and it’s a tough pill to swallow.
We attract what we are, not what we want.
You may want loving and supportive friends. You may want to find yourself surrounded by positivity every day.
But if that’s not what you’re putting out into the world, you aren’t going to find those sort of people.
I can tell you that better than anyone else.
Back in 2010, I didn’t have the right people in my life. And it’s because I wasn’t the sort of person that the right people wanted in their lives.
I was just completely full of bulls***. People could smell me coming a...
This is so powerful. Must watch.
P.s. This meal prep company is the very best out there. I use them.

How good is this. One of my members in TJM just posted this in our community page.
We all spend way too much time in comparison. Social media doesn't make it any easier. Raise awareness and catch yourself. Look inside, focus on you. Your race, your pace.
