Don’t get it twisted, everyone is on a journey. Sleeping, eating,walking, dancing,talking,flirting or even reading? Hey, you’re on a mission. Pay attention to this , there only two types of mission on this planet :
- Destructive missions
- Mysterious missions.
You might be curious; “why would anyone want to be on a path to destruction”? The truth is , it doesn’t happen consciously or intentionally. That’s why you need to watch your thoughts and what you pay attention to. Pay much attention to failure,and you can watch yourself relish in misery! When I lose or mess up, I learn my lessons real quick and move on almost immediately. Wasting much time on the reasons why you crashed will only put you in a state of being a victim. Why treat yourself like a victim when you have the chance to be a VICTOR? Why not pick yourself up and take another shot? Everyone fails at something, and , as a matter of fact, the mentors or stars you look up to has failed more than you could ever imagine. If you think I’m wrong, why not reach out to them?
I want you to grip this – Destructive decisions breeds destructive missions. I know you need an example. For example : A student who understands that success in exams requires nothing but sound preparation , but , then decides not to read or prepare. Instead , he depends on luck or some esoteric junk – You would agree with me that such student is heading for failure (Destruction). I label it destruction because it ruins joy, self-esteem, money,time and most importantly confidence. No matter how confident you’re, when you hit rock bottom, your confidence suddenly hit rock bottom (unless you decide to pick it up). Confidence relies on WINS! The more wins, the more confident you become – Period!
NOW, let’s talk about the mysterious journey. I strongly believe that GREATNESS and SUCCESS is not a juicy journey. If it was juicy or easy, everyone would get served. I also wouldn’t want to label SUCCESS OR GREATNESS an ugly or hard journey, instead, it’s Mysterious! Everyone is trying to figure it out.
Why do you think the top CEOs read 60 plus books a year? Huhn? Why do you think your mentors are still hustling and pounding? Why do you think they’re still hungry? Have any idea? Because that thing called success or greatness is mysterious. Nobody has it all figured out. So the top dogs are looking to sorround themselves with other top dogs just to share or learn from each other! That’s why most of the time, I’m usually pissed when I find people acting drippy towards that thing called SUCCESS or GREATNESS. As far as I know, you can’t allow your emotions overthrown you when you’re on the mysterious mission… I’m mostly sorry for the youths who treat success like it doesn’t matter. And I’m mostly sorry for myself when I allow my emotions judge when I’m tired. I sound intense, right? Success is intensely mysterious.
There are billions of gifts on the planet, yet only few are even noticed. Isn’t that enough to tell you to buckle up? There are thousands and millions and billions of hard workers out there that still don’t even feel fulfilled , isn’t that enough to tell you that you aren’t doing enough? I’m not trying to feed your mind with pressure here, I’m merely keeping it real with you. True pressure will appear when you realize that success is not for the meek. So what are the tools you’ll need in this mysterious mission?
Some of them, you’ve heard before, maybe , you just didn’t take them serious – Maybe. Some aren’t even going to be on the list , why? Because I don’t know everything. No one does!
- Smart work
- Knowledge & Wisdom
- Thick skin
- Constant improvement
- All or Nothing vibe.
And countless others……. Are you overwhelmed by the list already? I am. So what now? I would advice you to just grip three traits and these traits or tools will see you through to the end of the journey, I assure you….
- Commit to CONSTANT improvement…&
- Apply Nike’s advice – “JUST DO IT!” always….&
- PERSIST no matter what.
HAVE A FULFILLING MYSTERIOUS JOURNEY & DO MAKE SURE YOU DON’T STOP UNTIL YOU FULFILL YOUR MISSION!
