I want to talk to you a little about the logic behind TJM.
Here’s how I see it.
Every single human being on this planet is a little bit broken.
We’re all a little bit scared. Everyone’s got some pain and some baggage that they’re lugging around with them. If someone doesn’t have that then they’re a sociopath, right?
We all think that we’re not enough.
That’s the big reveal.
The mistake we make is that we wander around thinking that it’s only us. Everybody else seems to have their stuff together. Why don’t we?
The truth is that going under the surface on anyone in your life will reveal their pain and baggage. They’re just like you. They may have different struggles and pain.
But they’re a little bit broken too.
Embrace that fact. Recognise that it’s not just you. As soon as you recognise this single fact in life, you’re ready to start moving on and confronting your pain.
That realisation can be your line in the sand. The platform that you’re going to use to make a positive change in your life.
Think about somebody whom you really admire. A role model that you aspire to be like.
Now remember, they’ve got pain and baggage in their life, just like you do. The difference is that they drew a line in the sand and told themselves that their pain wouldn’t govern their lives anymore.
If they can do it, there’s no reason why you can’t too.
They found a place of love and gratitude for who they are. You can do exactly the same. Stop focusing on the pain and baggage. Start appreciating what makes you who you are.
You’re perfectly imperfect.
Success isn’t going to be clean and easy. It’s a messy road and you’re going to trip up along the way.
Fail, but don’t quit.
Don’t let your baggage weigh you down. When you fall, pick yourself up and brush yourself off. It’s just a minor blip on the road.
You can recover from it.
Use your pain to push yourself forward.
I believe in you.
