W.I.N. = What’s Important Now?
-
N.O.W. = No Opportunity Wasted

It doesn’t matter what other people think about you, especially if they don’t know you. Make peace with yourself and know that you are the most important person you speak to everyday. Don’t worry if others don’t believe in you, what’s important is that you believe in you, and that your work ethic and actions align with what you’re going after. Think positively. Think productively. Think on purpose, with purpose.

Don’t underestimate the power of stacking small wins. Little by little a little becomes a lot.

Our kids have lived in 9 different homes, across four different states. They’ve been bullied. We’ve struggled financially. We’ve battled severe health issues. We lose sleep wondering if we’re parenting right. We’ve had moments where our marriage hasn’t been the best. We’ve struggled through some very very dark times.
-
We’ve met amazing people. We’ve laughed so hard our stomaches hurt. We forgive each other. We cheer each other on. We pray together. We make each other better. We love each other. We’ve seen miracles.

Not feeling great doesn’t mean you can’t perform great.

Are you a fountain ⛲️ or a drain 🕳?
-
Fountains are people who light up the room when they walk in. They bring energy, positivity, and hope. They look for solutions for every problem, and act in spite of fear. Fountains don’t let the negativity happening outside of them get inside of them.
-
Drains constantly complain. They display bad body language and look for a problem for every solution. They suck the energy out of a meeting, a room, or a conversation. They tend to see things in a negative light. They are threatened or jealous when others succeed.
-
Being a fountain or a drain is a choice. Which one will you choose to be today?

My man @joshcribbs16 is one of the biggest fountains I know!

It’s great to have confidence, but sometimes you’ll have it, and sometimes you won’t. You can be successful either way. Focus on what you’re going to do, not how you feel.

When you know, you know.

In 2008 I told my wife, "One day I want to impact the world." She lovingly responded, "You're all talk." She continued, "You always say that you want to do big things and follow your dreams; but you never do anything about it." Little did she know, that was one of the most influential moments of my life. That night I decided to pursue being a Mental Performance Coach.
-
I remember thinking, "How do I even begin to follow my dreams?"; "Is pursuing my goals going to put food on the table for my wife and kids?"; "What if I'm not very good at what I want to do?"; “What will people think?” I was filled with tons of reasons why I couldn’t do it, they were nothing but excuses. Starting from zero taught me so much.
-
Working three jobs, getting a masters degree, and having three kids under 2-years-old was crazy, we absolutely struggled! Now, almost 10-years later, I can see the incredible strides I’ve made as I have focused on getting 1% better every single day. Success doesn't come all at once, it comes little by little, day after day.
-
By no means do I think I've "made it", and it would be wrong not to mention the many people who took (and continue to take) chances on me – especially when I was just starting out.
-
I remember people trying to tell me what they thought was best for me, and what I could or couldn’t do; but I knew I had to own my own path and I didn’t need anyone’s permission to do it.
-
If any of you are paralyzed by the fear of failure, don’t know what you want, or just don't know how to start; I remember being where you are. My counsel to you is to identify what you want, work incredibly hard every single day, and don't underestimate how hard it's going to be and how long it's going to take. Just go for it and remember, following your dreams is not for the faint of heart.
-
One more thing, stay close to the people who love you, and are willing to tell you the brutal truth; they will help you see your blind spots. Thank you @suasquad, I’m still trying not to be “all talk” 😂🤣

🎙IT’S ALL PART OF IT🎙

The streaks. The slumps. The success. The failure. The praise. The criticism. The loneliness. The injuries. The rehab. The PR’s. The wins. The losses. The fear. The doubt. The confidence. The focus. The distractions. The supporters. The haters. The journey.
