How many of you decided to stop to dosomething because it was hard? Raise your hands please. Like there was no excuse whatsoever for not getting at what it isthat you should be doing. We’re just so interestedin blaming everybody else and condones because we don’t want totake on responsibility. So whenever something hurts you there are 2 alternatives You was in a position become wounded, or you can become wise. This is the choice As Einstein said, “Those that “ve never” miscarried have never tried” The reason most peopledon’t take action is simple it’s fear. Fear of outage, fright of success. Perfection equals paralysis In my experience, things hardly ever get perfectly even if you want them to stuff goes wrong, that’s just man. When everything seemsto be going against you remember that the airplanetakes off against the wind not with it. And once you learnby precipitating on your face, that’s how you learn. You learn by tryingto create a light bulb. Over … and over … and over again.If at first, you neglect then try, try again When a child’s learning howto walk, it falls down 50 ages it never stops thinking to itself … “This isn’t for me” We all fail. It’s okay. What is not okay is … that when you fail, you stay down. It only took 1 mistaketo turn your entire soul inside out. It only takes 1 good assessment to see what you were make wrong. Because failure is just testing. It’s blood hard to be a high performance person. Difficulties are always an indicator that you are making progress. So many of you in here are comfortable and you think exactly because you’recomfortable you’re being successful. I don’t ever definitely sounds like I losebecause I won’t give up. Even if I lose, I’ll do it again. The leveraging is in beingaccountable for everything. The leveraging is uncovering your fragilities. We either win or we learn. You never look at thatas a flop or a loss You look at it asan opportunity to learn.There’s nothing wrong with meeting mistakes and so what can I learn from this? Now, you’re leveragingthis trouble to grow. Don’t heave the towel in so quickly. Many beings give up on the 1 garden position. Whether you’re, you are well aware, 9, 12, 16, 21, 22, 24 if you neglect, it doesn’t matter. Your failure is irrelevant. There’s not one of you that weren’tdestined to become successful “youve had” dreams and you have purposes. And I predict you , nobody can stop you. I don’t think confidence is somethingthat you were born with it’s a skill set. And I had no confidence. So confidence is somethingI learnt myself over the years. I started becoming okay with who I am. I became the best version of me. And then, I sort of said, I’m okay.You know, I’m alright.Even if someone elsethinks this, I’m okay. And everyone can do that. People precisely don’t realize it. So, it cleared me understand that confidence genuinely is the keyto getting ahead in live. If you believe in yourself, the world will believe in you. Because perception is reality. As soon as I started doingeverything that I affection there was a surge of strength, a flood of trust, I wasn’t insecure anymore. Because the emotion that had the most dominancein my thought process was actually being paid attention to.I … I’m really sick of being insecure. I belief I’m enoughand I believe that everything I have that I need for life to makeall my dreams come true I know it’s already inside of me. It’s who you areand being comfortable with who you are that influences other people to say, “Oh, Okay. Maybe I could do that.” You can’t wait for fate. No one can do that, you can’t be like, “Oh! Destiny’s going toknock at my opening one day.” No, it won’t. You have to be able torecognize opportunities because there’ll be a lot ofthem that come into your life. And once you’ve recognized an opportunity, you have to seize the day and work viciou hard-bitten because there’ll be 25 otherpeople who’ll want to do it. If flop was not on the table do you “ve realized that” 87% of people give the fear of failure to outweigh their desire to succeed. Failure is required. Success is optional. Successful parties disappoint a lot.They neglect a whole lot morethan they succeeded. I disappeared all in. I determined my move beforeI was ready, I took increased risk. It didn’t been paid the acces I wishes also to but I learned. You don’t lose if you learn. Failure is destined to happen. At some station, you will fail why? Because you’re not good at everything. You can learn so much better, if not more … from your collapses, your non-starts, your reluctances as you are eligible to from your successes. You’ve got a lot going for you, a lot more than you think.If you’re framing your life as a outage and making their own lives as a flop you will continue to see merely failure in your life. It’s up to you how you bounce back from those outages. I’ve seen a lot ofincredible beings stopped … by an unwillingness to let go ofa past that doesn’t help them. No retreat No resign You know they say life is9 0% of what happens and the other 10% is how you respond to it.It’s possible. I can do this.I can make this happen. No concern how bad it is or how bad it gets I’m going to make it. I say it’s time for youto turn your life around. I say it’s time for you to get backup because life-time simply beat you down. I say it’s time for you to swimbecause you’re about to drown. Congratulations. You’ve existed 100% of the worst moments of their own lives. If in that moment, regardlessof your worldly success, you feel good about who you are.You feeling all right about what you’ve done and how you’ve touchedother people’s lives. You feeling all right about what you’restriving for and trying to accomplish. You feeling all right that inthe times when it got hard it didn’t matter to youyou pushed through That difficulties. So, in other words your risk of being successful is determined by how well you canbounce back from those failures.He was homeless for 3 weeks. Living in a New Jersey Bus Station.

Failing is not a bad thing it is a stepping stone toyour next level of greatness.Failure promotes youropportunity for success. It is a pre-requisite for success How bad do you want to succeed? The better question is how much are you willing to fail? Never let yourself be the main victims. If I could go back in time, and have a conversationwith my 8 to 10 year old-time self, well the message I would utter. Because when you thinkabout it, you’re a kid things don’t go your road, what do you do? You cry, you grumble, you throw a fit, you demand your parentsto feel sorry for you, you feel sorry for yourself. It’s how, how you dealwith things at that senility. And then you grown up but you don’t definitely shed that wont, that mentality.And it becomes obvious, right? I signify, you can talkto someone for 30 seconds and you know right away if they have that scapegoat attitude, the world falling down, they’re tired, they have so much to do, they’re so busy, X-Y-Z. Look, having that mindset, does 2 things for you. One, it obliges you comeacross helpless and weak. And no one wants to come across that behavior. Two, it should not get youto where you’re going, it does not change the situation. Right? Here is the reality. There is alwaysa way to get what you want. There is always a wayto position yourself, to move away from what you don’t want. You can quite literally becomewhat you want to become but you cannot look at life like it’s this trouble, like it’s against you. The ball is in your court. You know, it wasn’t thatlong ago, 2 – three years ago, that I was not the happiestguy in the world. Right? Did not like what I was doing, should not like how I was spending my meter, was not enlivened, was not passionate about very much.But the time camewhere I didn’t want to live like that. I had a conversation with myself, I stopped being the victim, I stopped deploring, and I queried myself, “dude, what do you want? What is your purpose? What is your goal? Who do you want to become? ” And I literally realise the decisionand walked away a different person.And the things around mechanged, my life converted because I made a decisionto never be the victim again, to get what I crave. I became the author of my own story. And you realise just how simple it isto transform your place. Not easy, right? And it takes time. But there’s always a wayto come from place A to point B. And this separates the worldinto 2 kinds of people.People who look at how things are, who accept reality as truth, who complain. And people who look at what can be, who make the most of any statu, look at life as if it’s clay to be molded, to be shaped. It seems funny to meknowing what I do now that I went through any of my lifelike a hamster on a wheel that I talked to people everydaywho didn’t enliven me that I didn’t want to be around, that I did thingsI wasn’t passionate about. That is madnes. Because if you don’t like something, but you do nothing to change it, what’s left for you to do? Complain, whine, stay where you are, that’s it. See, one of the reasonsI reference athletics so much is because they bringthis attitude on you.That when things become difficult, when things become challenging your work, your one jobis to find a way to figure it out. And I ever did, and I took that and I brought itto everything else I do. And now it is eye opening to see beings achievingsuccess, fiscal democracy, these things everyone wants. And know that the differencebetween them and everyone else is that they felt like they deserved it. A pile of the time theyweren’t smarter, stronger they weren’t more gifted to begin but they moved toward what the fuck is missed. They didn’t cry or groanabout their own problems, they didn’t look for sympathy.Those at the top ofthe mountain are not scapegoats. They will never tell themselves be victims. It’s about the other side, the possibilities of. Getting from where you are to what you want. The- the first step is belief, right? People think that beliefcomes once you’ve done it. You won’t even make the first step if you don’t believeyou can fulfill it. So, we precede with belief as a genu. So, you have to finda way to believe in it to move so your mommy is giving youan awesome challenge. Can you believe in the faceof her skepticism, right? And to me, when people doubt me, it’s a gift. I adoration thatbecause I believe in beauty and rage and there is a requirement to both. I need people to cherish me, I need to want beautiful thingsfor myself and for others, I want to create something astonishing, I want to help a lot of people.I likewise want to prove a lot of people wrong who don’t think that I can do this. I want to suppress the enemies that want to see me neglect, that want to do anythingthey can to ensure that I miscarry. I waste 80% of my time here, and 20% of my age here. And the irony is as Darth Vader will tell you there’s power on the dark side. And formerly you learn to equilibrium those then you really get something interesting. And here’s another way to say it You have to know when to love yourself, and know when to detest yourself. I think it’s 80/20 again. You want to spend 80% of the time loving youand being proud of who you are no matter where you are , no matter what part ofyour wander you’re in.Really adoration that you’reshowing up, that you’re playing, maybe you’re not yet satisfiedwith the level you’re playing at. But no worries, like you’re there, you’re doing it, you’re testify up. And then 20% of the time beingwildly disappointed by yourself, being terrified by the factthat you were so lazy and so afraid of being coldthat you wouldn’t get out of bed. Like that’s terrifyingand that is not acceptable That’s not a person that you’reprepared to continue to be and that you time find thatso disgusting in yourself that you’re going to makean immediate conversion. And if you don’t do that, you’ll never thrive. You’ll spend all your timeover here, you’ll be conciliated. Talk about being mollified by the dreammerely having the dream.I want to do good things for people – have you heard a lot of people say that? – yeah Yeah, people say that all day “I want to do great thingsI want to help the world.” In what method? Like they don’t get specific, so they soothed by the dream. So, you’ve got this person who isreally not living up to their possible being pacified by the vision of whatthey can do and who they could become but they never to your earlier part, they never find the path to execution. So, I find, withoutkicking myself in the laughingstock without being deeplydissatisfied with myself 20% of the time because if it’s more than 20% ofthe time you begin to erode yourself and it gets very astringent. You’ll chip away at your ownself-esteem and that’s a total squander. But you do have to bewilling to kick your butt See, I recognized early on in man that life isn’t just about the decisions that we make.You know what I’m saying? If you don’t become whoyou’re supposed to become people going to die. That’s deep.Now think about it. If you don’t become whoyou’re supposed to become, like parties going to hurt. Like if I don’t hitthe reset button in man, Who knows where Brianwould be right now? Who knows where the team would be? Like There’s something inside you. And so, this is why we do “what were doing”. Because I don’t know if Like, all y’all are probablyfeeling the presentation but how many of you are reallygoing to apply what we gave you? It “couldve been” 10%, it could be 40%, I don’t know.But what took place todaycould alter your life forever because you’ve got a brain. So when you find yourself down and out, you go think about man, If Jill was in her gondola, homelessand pregnant and she got through it That girl has sang in Africa and beento Ecuador and all over the globe. If she could do it, you know now you could do it. And some of you got somehomeboys you combined with but you know they aren’t really livinghow you are supposed to be living and they precede you down the wrongway, you know from Brian’s story. Yo, if I remove myself from it, if I plug in with positive parties I can make it. Listen, I want for youwhat we’re experiencing. One of my homeboys was like, “J, you gotta take it easy. You miss everybody toexperience a great life like you”. I’m like “bro, why not? I’m trying to win.I want you to win.” I went through too much sorenes. When Tony was sharingwhat she was sharing Jill, both of them came dealt with beings takingadvantage of them when they were little. Listen to me worker. I know you’re suffering. I know you’re hurting onthe inside, you wonder why? Like why this got to happen to me? Why I gotta knowledge this? Why this person had totake advantage of me? I predict you, you are turning into a warrior. Because the stuff thatyou’re going through, the stuff that you have to experience, What don’t kill you constructs you stronger. If you look at the catthat goes to the gym and he’s lifting weightsand he’s pumping iron.If you ask homeboy “Hey bro, howdid you get so large-hearted? ” They will tell you. “It took a whole lot of go and I hadto go through a whole lot of pain.” And life is going to grow you. Listen to me right now, life is going to grow you. It is not going to be easy, it is going to be agonizing, it is going to be frustrating. You’re going to molted some cries, you’re probably going to spill some blood. It’s going to hurtbut you’ve gotta prevent pushing. You know when there’snothing turn left to do but to fight with everything you’ve got to get back up there’s a word for it Resilience. And that oath comesdown to such a simple test. Not much involved. But in the moments that matter most it’s everything. You and a mirror looking into your own gazes and realizingthere’s nowhere else to go but up, and being ready for what that takes. It’s a single decision. The same decisionyou’ll was also necessary shape everyday Get up.It’s what gets someone to writeletter after note after word. Looking for a task because theyknow all they need is a start. It’s what causes someone tokeep moving straight forward even when the start of their journeyshould have smacked them off track. Resilience and grit these aren’t quite texts. They mean something much moreto those who know them well. These terms have disfigures, they typify the combat but they are also the gatewayto something so special. It’s what it means to lose 8 ballots, be presented at berthed for 6 monthsafter a nervous breakdown, then to get up and do what it takesto enter the books of record. It is the power behindgetting repudiated 12 terms before demolish almost every recordand every ceiling imaginable. Resilience. That’s the word leftwhen the tornadoes keep working, when things go from bad to worse, every reason to stop trying.The moment we all gethumbled by at some time, sometimes more than formerly. There are meters for dreams and sometimes there is onlytime for the reality of now. Picking up one foot, then the other. Starting to move forward step by step. Tears and resentment, another step. Hurt and sadness, a further step. Shaking off what was, you just keep going. It’s the glowing that ultimately breaksafter the darkest of lights. In the moment that matters You .. and a reflect same decision daily. Knowing it’s going to be long, knowing there’s no other acces. That .. is .. resilience. The rigors of academic being can be brutal. Long daylights of class, long nights of studying, and low-grade cash flow requires you to be frugal. Projects, event studies, pop quizzes and final exams will measure your ethics and your scruples. But you remain pushing and pushing because you know one day all of that hard work and studying will pay off and be productive. You’ve seen many otherssuccumb to academic collapse and wind up with the wrongletter on their transcript.The dreaded W which dreadfully stands for withdrawal. But that’s where you draw the line because you’ve made a vowto choose incline over descend, fast forward over rewind, redesign over recline and hard grind over pout and squeak. You concluded the choice to excavate deep within. And thus the only W you will ever get will be the W that stands for WIN. Because winners looks just like you pickthemselves up when they stumble and slip. Wins like you understandthat it is impossible to never junket. Wins like you arestrong enough to say no when their friendswant them to take a sip.Winners like you trust the process so steps they never ever try and skip. And that chipping on your shoulder it remains to remind you of allthe doubters, nay-sayers, and haters. They said you would never walkacross that theatre and receive that paper but more ga for your shell precisely builds success so much greater. Because you overcomingthe sour smell of now to get to the sweet taste of later. You adjust to allthe different personalities of your teachers and profs and experience those that are super cool but keep mentally preparedfor those that are stressors. Commendations seem to find you because the universe plots to make sure everything falls into place. Because you’ve got so muchheart, excitement and desire. Your fire hinders burning but at times it starts to fizzle but you rememberyou owe it to your future self and that gas turnsthat fizzle into a sizzle.You want to leave a legacy and contribute to the greater good. So, for now is the uncomfortable discipline and relinquish. Because the cash out in the future means today you got to pay the price. So that planneds when yourfriends query “Can you go? ” Your heart wants to say yes but your firmnes says no. Because Mr. Jones’ Thermo-Chemistry 3202 ain’t no joke. And so, you gotta belocked in and keep waken because he’s all about business and doesn’t give any rope.So, if you miss anyassignments or fail any research you have very little hopeof overstepping his class. But you will pass his class and you will pass with flying colors. Because you, your best friend, are an academic hustler. And thus you put in the time, their own efforts and ask all the right questions tomake sure all of your basis are covered. The vultures will detest. You tried to give them vision but they never put on the right makes. And thus their vision was blurryand their tier reflected it.And now they want to throw shade at you but your shield avoided it. You said about acquiring in progress over here so please eliminate the negative vibe. It’s time to remove them from your halo and find yourself a positive tribe. Because misery loves firm but that misery cannot haveany of your camaraderie because everybodyon your team is working as a contingent to come back and acquire the championship. You owe it to your future self to make money movesin and out of the classroom.Because time waits for no one. And whether you succeeded or neglect, it will pass soon. So, respect your personal brand and make sure your daily advertisementrepresents who you want to be. Walk with character and stability so your thoughtfulnes in the mirror is who you want to see. Your future selfis counting on your current self to set the manner and make sureyour future is not only shining but strong and strong for mediocrity. Your future self is countingon your current self to never take shortcutsand never shortfall integrity.Because the day will come for you to walk withcharacter and have clarity. Greatness is your destiny. But at times you mustreboot your mental computer Because every step you take today will directly feign … future developments. Your future self is countingon your current self to give every ounce of your being, every ounce of your person to make sure you tap into your endowment. This is a great day to WIN ..
