How many of you decided not 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 excuses because we don't want totake on responsibility. So whenever something hurts you there are 2 options You can either become wounded, or you can become wise.


 

 Thi is the choice As Einstein said,"Those that have never failed have never tried" The reason most peopledon't take action is simple it's fear. Fear of failure, fear of success. Perfection equals paralysis In my experience,things hardly ever go perfectly even if you want them to stuff goes wrong, that's just life. When everything seemsto be going against you remember that the airplanetakes off against the wind not with it. And once you learnby falling 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 fail then try, try again When a child's learning howto walk, it falls down 50 times it never stops and thinks 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 whole life inside out. It only takes 1 good test to see what you were doing wrong. Because failure is just testing. It's bloody hard to be a high performance person. Problems are always an indicator that you are making progress. So many of you in here are comfortable and you think just because you'recomfortable you're being successful.


I don't ever feel like I losebecause I won't give up. Even if I lose, I'll do it again. The leverage is in beingaccountable for everything. The leverage is exposing your weaknesses. We either win or we learn. You never look at thatas a failure or a loss You look at it asan opportunity to learn. There's nothing wrong with making mistakes and so what can I learn from this? Now, you're leveragingthis problem to grow. Don't throw the towel in so quickly. Many people give up on the 1 yard line. Whether you're, you know,9, 12, 16, 21, 22, 24 if you fail, it doesn't matter. Your failure is irrelevant.


There's not one of you that weren'tdestined to become successful you have dreams and you have goals. And I promise 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 taught 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 just don't realize it. So, it made me understand that confidence truly is the keyto getting ahead in life. If you believe in yourself,the world will believe in you. Because perception is reality. As soon as I started doingeverything that I love there was a surge of power, a surge of confidence,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 believe 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 destiny. No one can do that, you can't be like, "Oh! Destiny's going toknock at my door 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 bloody hard because there'll be 25 otherpeople who'll want to do it. If failure was not on the table do you realize that 87% of people allow the fear of failure to outweigh their desire to succeed. Failure is required. Success is optional. Successful people fail a lot. They fail a whole lot morethan they succeed. I went all in. I made my move beforeI was ready, I took a risk. It didn't pay off the way I wanted it to but I learned.


You don't lose if you learn. Failure is destined to happen. At some point, you will fail why? Because you're not good at everything. You can learn as much, if not more... from your failures, your non-starts, your hesitations as you can 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 failure and framing your life as a failure you will continue to see only failure in your life. It's up to you how you bounce back from those failures. I've seen a lot ofincredible people stopped... by an unwillingness to let go ofa past that doesn't help them. No retreat No surrender You know they say life is90% 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 matter 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 just knocked you down. I say it's time for you to swimbecause you're about to drown. Congratulations.


You've survived 100% of the worst moments of your life. If in that moment, regardlessof your worldly success, you feel good about who you are. You feel good about what you've done and how you've touchedother people's lives. You feel good about what you'restriving for and trying to accomplish. You feel good that inthe times when it got hard it didn't matter to youyou pushed through That matters. So, in other words your chance 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. He also was so broke at one point, that when he was writing the film "Rocky" his electricity was turned off and he was forced tosell his dog for 25 bucks just to get the lights turned back on. Then, later on he wasrejected by talent scouts over 1500 times. Probably, most famousfor his work in "Rocky". Sylvester Stallone She was once told that she didn'thave the face for television. "Your only shot to make itin this TV industry was to be behind the camera,not in front of it." Forbes mentioned that in 2004, she gave away 276 cars to members of her audience. She ultimately paved the way for many of ourother beloved talk-show hosts. Now, she has her own network. A name that brings smilesto people all over the world. He created theme parks.


With the reputation of being"The Happiest Place on Earth". His parks are created withcreativity and imagination from the very secondyou enter into their gates. Long before he became known asthe inventor of this magical place, he was fired from the newspaperthat he once worked at. They fired him because his bosssaid, he lacked imagination. Walt Disney An American Film-maker. He is considered one ofthe Founding Pioneers of the new Hollywood Era. And one of the most popularDirectors and Producers in Film history. He directed "Jurassic Park". It made almost 939 million dollars. But what you might not know, is that he got rejectedfrom film school 3 times.

Steven Spielberg He is an actor, a comedian, impressionist, Screenwriter, a musician,producer, and even a painter. But growing up was a different story. He was extremely poor, even at the age of 15, he worked as a janitor to help his family pay the bills. And to hear his first performanceat a comedy club, he was booed off stage. Now you can't go anywhere in the worldwithout someone knowing exactly who Jim Carrey is. Failure 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 victim. If I could go back in time, and have a conversationwith my 8 to 10 year old self, that would be the message I would give. Because when you thinkabout it, you're a kid things don't go your way, what do you do? You cry, you whine, you throw a fit, you want your parentsto feel sorry for you, you feel sorry for yourself. It's how, how you dealwith things at that age. And then you grow up but you don't necessarily shed that habit, that mentality. And it becomes obvious, right? I mean, you can talkto someone for 30 seconds and you know right away if they have that victim mentality, 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 makes you comeacross helpless and weak. And no one wants to come across that way. Two, it does 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 problem,like it's against you. The ball is in your court. You know, it wasn't thatlong ago, 2 - 3 years ago, that I was not the happiestguy in the world. Right? Did not like what I was doing, did not like how I was spending my time, was not energized, 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 complaining, and I asked myself, "dude,what do you want? What is your purpose?What is your goal? Who do you want to become?" And I literally made the decisionand walked away a different person. And the things around mechanged, my life changed because I made a decisionto never be the victim again, to get what I want. I became the author of my own story. And you realize just how simple it isto transform your situation. Not easy, right?And it takes time. But there's always a wayto get from point 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 situation, 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 energize me that I didn't want to be around, that I did thingsI wasn't passionate about.


That is insanity. 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 mentality on you. That when things become difficult,when things become challenging your job, your one jobis to find a way to figure it out. And I always did, and I took that and I brought itto everything else I do. And now it is eye opening to see people achievingsuccess, financial freedom, these things everyone wants. And know that the differencebetween them and everyone else is that they felt like they deserved it. A lot of the time theyweren't smarter, stronger they weren't more gifted starting out but they moved toward what they wanted. They didn't cry or groanabout the problems, they didn't look for sympathy. Those at the top ofthe mountain are not victims. They will never let themselves be victims. It's about the other side,the opportunity. 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 take the first step if you don't believeyou can accomplish it. So, we lead with belief as a species. So, you have to finda way to believe in it to move so your mom is giving youan awesome challenge. Can you believe in the faceof her doubt, right? And to me, when people doubt me, it's a gift. I love thatbecause I believe in beauty and rage and you need both. I need people to love me, I need to want beautiful thingsfor myself and for others, I want to create something amazing,I want to help a lot of people. I also want to prove a lot of people wrong who don't think that I can do this. I want to crush the enemies that want to see me fail, that want to do anythingthey can to ensure that I fail. I spend 80% of my time here,and 20% of my time here. And the irony is as Darth Vader will tell you there's power on the dark side. And once you learn to balance 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 hate 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 journey you're in. Really loving 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 showing up. And then 20% of the time beingwildly disappointed by yourself, being horrified 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 just find thatso disgusting in yourself that you're going to makean immediate change. And if you don't do that,you'll never grow. You'll spend all your timeover here, you'll be pacified. Talk about being pacified 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 way? Like they don't get specific,so they pacified by the dream. So, you've got this person who isreally not living up to their potential being pacified by the vision of whatthey can do and who they could become but they never to your earlier point,they never find the path to execution. So, I find, withoutkicking myself in the butt 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 corrosive. You'll chip away at your ownself-esteem and that's a total waste. But you do have to bewilling to kick your butt See, I recognized early on in life 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 people going to hurt.


Like if I don't hitthe reset button in life, 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 we do. 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 could be 10%,it could be 40%, I don't know. But what took place todaycould shift 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 car, 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 connected with but you know they aren't really livinghow you are supposed to be living and they lead you down the wrongway, you know from Brian's story. Yo, if I remove myself from it,if I plug in with positive people 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 want 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 pain. When Tony was sharingwhat she was sharing Jill, both of them got dealt with people takingadvantage of them when they were little. Listen to me man. 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 experience this? Why this person had totake advantage of me? I promise 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 makes 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 big?" They will tell you. "It took a whole lot of time 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 painful, it is going to be frustrating. You're going to shed some tears,you're probably going to spill some blood. It's going to hurtbut you've gotta keep pushing. You know when there'snothing left to do but to fight with everything you've got to get back up there's a word for it Resilience. And that word 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 eyes 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 need to make everyday Get up.


It's what gets someone to writeletter after letter after letter. Looking for a job 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 knocked them off track. Resilience and grit these aren't pretty words. They mean something much moreto those who know them well. These words have scars, they symbolize the battle but they are also the gatewayto something so special. It's what it means to lose 8 elections, be in bed for 6 monthsafter a nervous breakdown, then to get up and do what it takesto enter the books of history.


It is the power behindgetting rejected 12 times before smashing almost every recordand every ceiling imaginable. Resilience. That's the word leftwhen the storms keep coming, when things go from bad to worse, every reason to stop trying. The moment we all gethumbled by at some point, sometimes more than once. There are times 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 frustration, another step. Hurt and sadness, another step. Shaking off what was,you just keep going. It's the light that finally breaksafter the darkest of nights.


In the moment that matters You.. and a mirror same decision everyday. Knowing it's going to be long, knowing there's no other way. That.. is.. resilience. The rigors of academic life can be brutal. Long days of classes, long nights of studying, and low cash flow requires you to be frugal. Projects, case studies, pop quizzes and final exams will test your morals and your scruples. But you keep pushing and pushing because you know one day all of that hard work and studying will pay off and be fruitful.


You've seen many otherssuccumb to academic demise and wind up with the wrongletter on their transcript. The dreaded W which painfully stands for withdrawal. But that's where you draw the line because you've made a vowto choose incline over decline, fast forward over rewind, redesign over recline and hard grind over pout and whine. You made the choice to dig deep within. And thus the only W you will ever get will be the W that stands for WIN. Because winners like you pickthemselves up when they stumble and slip. Winners like you understandthat it is impossible to never trip. Winners 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 chip on your shoulder it.
