My freakin good peeps! How have you been? I hope this email finds everyone having come off one of the best holidays of their lives. With the Cancun trip and Thanksgiving, I haven’t been on my blog game. Moving forward, I am back in action as we prepare to take over the world together. I want to begin by reminding you that having discipline and engaging in great habits is super difficult. For months and months and months I was consistent with getting up at 5:00 am. But during the last 10 days or so I haven’t been doing it. Today was the first day of getting back into my daily routine, and it suuuuucked to peal myself out of bed at 5:00. Point is, doing something great or being a part of something great is not easy. But it will always be worth it.
I enjoyed my reading today in “Think and Grow Rich” and wanted to pass onto you some of the things I learned. First of all, “What starts here, changes the world.” Think about that quote for a second. If each of us on this blog decided to change the lives of 10 people in one way or another, that would be 5,000 people who’s lives were effected by this group. Lets say that those 5,000 blessed the lives of 10 as well, and those another 10, and those another 10, and those just another 10 more. With what starts here, we could be a part of changing the lives of 50,000,000 people. How powerful is that? Second, the book talks about the fact that we are going to have obstacles in life, and that when we do, to slide down them head first.
One of the greatest days of my life is when I decided to stop living in pity city, and start blasting through my trials head on! With great success comes great responsibility. If we think that God is going to bless us with health, riches, success, relationships, and more, without making us earn every bit of it, we are crazy. Trials ARE GOING to come our way and in full abundance. Prepare for it! Own it! Be men and women during it! Learn from it! The deeper the wounds of trial that we overcome, the stronger the callouss moving forward. Be prepared for obstacles, because they are coming. One of the things that Navy Seals talk about all the time is the bell that sits in the middle of the training room for all to see and hear. So each time someone gives up and rings it, everyone knows. Here is the final thought. Never, ever, ever ring the bell!
Bells are for birds, Cram
