It's not about doing the occasional big things, it's about doing the consistent small things. If you go to the gym and you workout, and you come back and you look in the mirror, you will see nothing. And if you go to the gym the next day and you come back and you look in the mirror, you will see nothing. So clearly there's no results, it can't be measured, it must not be effective. So we quit. Or if you fundamentally believe that this is the right course of action and stick with it, you commit yourself to the regime, the exercise, if you stick with it consistently, I'm not exactly sure what day, but I know you'll start getting into shape. There's no event. It's an accumulation of lots and lots of little things, that any one by themselves is innocuous and useless. But if you do it consistently, and you do it in combination with lots of other little things, it's those little innocuous things that you do over and over and over and over that matter the most. When you're consistently good, When you are consistently true to your word and to your values, When what you say and what you do consistently measures up, and that there's a sense of cohesion in your thoughts, and your words, and your actions, and your questions, when all of it comes together in a consistent way, then all of a sudden the people say, I buy into that person. What I did yesterday got me to where I am today. But what I did yesterday is not gonna help me to stay where I am today. Do you understand me? You don't get out of life what you want, you get what you earn. Here, this is an everyday gig, everyday is a Monday. Every day is a beginning, a new day, a new shot at life. An opportunity to come out of the gate like a man possessed, and attack the day without mercy. Every one of you in five years from now is gonna arrive somewhere. Here's the thing, so many people, we just throw our lives up in the air and rely on chance, and just hope it all works out. You don't have to throw your life up to chance, your life can be a choice. And you can choose where you wanna go the next five years and beyond. You are powerful, and you are impactful, and you are in control. Today, I'm putting the pressure on. I'm the aggressor, I'm on the attack. And I will not stop.
