Will you run through a brick wall?

September 12, 2011

Fear.  It can cost you any countless number of things, but you can’t let it.  Remember all the girls you didn’t talk to in high school or the lifts you missed last week?  How about the promotion you weren’t selected for or that ball you dropped in the endzone?

In order to accomplish anything worth being called an “accomplishment”, you don’t need to be a special person, blessed with physical or mental gifts; you simply have to believe.  You have to believe and you have to immediately forget the multitude of reasons why success is impossible and your dreams will never come true.

Don’t get me wrong – there are those born more talented than you – but all you need to conquer fear in your life and accomplish what others wont, is something that every single person including *you* already have the ability to do.  BELIEVE.  Unwavering and unrelenting belief in yourself and your goal.  If you truly believe in your goal, it’s easy to turn down that 5th beer or the offer to blow off training or work.

There is no overnight way to do this stuff.  In order to be in the kind of shape you want to be in, in order to be as big and strong as you want to be, it’s probably going to take longer than you think.  There will be bumps on the road and missed exits along the way.

You have to put the work in and you have to be willing to be the “weird” guy/girl who doesn’t drink as much as everyone else or who skips a mid-day video game session to go lift.  These kinds of life altering changes – they are not easy, but YOU ARE STRONG ENOUGH to do it.  Just understand that it takes discipline and unwavering faith that you will get there to accomplish anything worth being called an “accomplishment”.

I literally could not care less if you think it’s corny.  It’s fucking true.  No one worth a damn who has ever done anything worth a damn has had this belief.  If you don’t, get it.  If you do, remind yourself every single day WHY you believe and why you would die for that belief.

If you aren’t ready to run through a brick wall after watching these two videos, check your pulse.  You are either dead or utterly worthless.  Are you willing to fight and die for the things that you want to accomplish?  If not, why are you doing them?
