Right. I need you to listen right now. Turn off the music, turn up the headphones and pay some attention here for a minute, or ten, or whatever it takes for you to get this to really sink in. First, I need you to watch this:
That is one of the most important things you will ever watch. As an entrepreneur, a sportsman who is looking for sponsors or a PRO athlete, that should be a part of your day, every day.
Now, read this: READ ME
Next, it’s time to get gritty, ugly, with yourself. Be honest about how you spend your time, how you make your money and how effective you are being, right now, with your life.
DO you constantly evaluate how efficiently you spend your time or do you spend your days surfing facebook, youtube, complaining about the government and all the lost opportunities for people in South Africa? Are you even in touch with what an amazing world this is, what an incredible time it is to be alive?
To be 100% honest, I don’t spend my time 100% effectively. I choose to be slack in places where, potentially, I could be much better. Yes, I effective in places that are most important, and those are growing all the time, but I could be better.
I want to be better.
I will be better.
Will you be better?
I’ll tell you what. This is my commitment to being better. I am putting it out here. I am going to track my progress too, being ok with the results, even when they are absolutely poo. I am going to improve, bit by bit. I am going to attack this beautiful world with everything I have, trying to make her shine even more for me and those around me. I am going to push every envelope, leave every stone turned over and I am going to grab every opportunity by the short and curlies and make it works for me, for my world, for those around me.
If you need a partner, I am here. Email me, send me a message and say f*** it, I am struggling. Tell me you need a pep talk, some motivation, and I will blast back a list of things to get you back on track. Hell, I might even ask the same of you in return at some point.
But this is a point in time where you have read this, have watched what I put up there, and you have a choice to make.
Carry on as you are, or be better.
I am going to be a better human being. I am going to be a better entrepreneur, husband, athlete, friend, son, brother.
What is your choice?
