People have this reoccurring nightmare, that there's some thing, some force that's got a hold of them and it's holding them down, and they can't break free, no matter what they do, they can't break free from that force. Well I'm here to tell you that that thing in your nightmare, that thing that is holding you back, that thing that is dragging you down, that thing is you. There are two fundamental attitudes toward life and its sorrows. Those with the first attitude, blame the world. Those with the second, ask what they could do differently. It's much easier and much more gratifying to your basis desires to blame someone else for your misery. You know what's so funny? We want people to make guarantees to us, But we not willing to make guarantees to ourselves. And that's the problem with some of you, you always want to blame other people. You owe you an explanation. You need to look at yourself in the mirror and say, "Why are you only giving 50%? What's wrong with you?" You need to put yourself on punishment. You need to tell you, no more TV, no more snacks, no more desserts, no, we working out now. You need to tell you that you owe you something. Everyday I demand more from myself then anyone else could humanly expect. I'm not competing with somebody else, I'm competing with what I'm capable of. My number one competition is me. It's always you versus you. You're gotta be the one to get up every morning, be disciplined, put in the consistent daily hard work, because that gains success. No couch, no trainer, no mentor, no boss can do it. You verses you. I value myself enough to give 120% or don't do it. There is no excuse for not living up to your fullest potential. No excuse. You walk out of this room, you owe yourself. I didn't get here making excuses. What changed? I changed. And I stopped being a victim. I stopped saying, I've gotta wait for good things to happen to me, and I said I'm gonna grind. I'm going to fight. I'm going to work. I'm going to press toward. I'm going to learn. I'm going to do everything in my power every single day to become a victor and not a victim. Why? Cause I owe it to myself. And can't nobody stop me but me.
