I have achieved exactly what I came here to do. This sounds like I actually had a plan (I didn’t), I came here to GET ONE.
I’m going home lighter, stronger, more confident, and freer from my own mental blocks and inhibitions.
I’ve made dozens of amazing, talented, and hungry friends which has completely changed the vibe of my social media feeds, and the vibes I am constantly receiving.
I am 100% sure that some back home will have something to say about my restored fire, mindset and drive. That people will tell me that what I want and how I do it is not realistic. I also know that this is because they don’t think it would be realistic for them, it’s not actually about what I am capable of.
How would they know what I am capable of? I barely know myself! I feel like I am only just starting to scratch the surface on the lid I had put on my own potential.
We can all be surprised together when I actually achieve it… and then surpass it.
Because I’m all in on this crazy life, I have decided it, and like Tim Grover says “there is no try, just decide and then do it”.
All aboooooard the crazy train!
Holy shit, what a ride!
The last couple days have been awesome and I learned a lot, but yesterday I felt like someone reached into my chest, doused it in petrol, threw a match at it, then catapulted it into outer space!
It was exactly what I needed. The summary of what I learned? I am the only one holding myself back from achieving what I am capable of. I feel freer, lighter, and a little unhinged at the same time hahaha.
This morning, despite feeling a little rough from a couple of celebratory vodka martinis before bed, I woke up possibly even more fired up than I’ve been all week! I immediately started looking at my goals with my fresher, less restricted mindset and picked out one to put into action immediately. It was a business idea that I thought I needed to hold off on until I was more business savvy, and had worked on my technical skills. Fuck that. Time to kick this idea pony in the guts!
Day 2 felt ultimately longer with soo much sales-related information that was well beyond where I’m at in my journey. I did take a lot more actionable value in terms of marketing, branding and getting going with developing my own brand, as where Day 1 was more of a mind opener for me. Day 1 showed me that anything is possible and set the tone for the conference, Day 2 started to show me how to turn infinite possibility into something that I could actually do with my life!
I had pretty low energy when I got back to my hotel room. Part of it was the regret of not starting earlier, part of it was pure exhaustion. I know there’s no point in regretting what I’ve been doing with my life up until this point, I know that it is all part of the journey and how I have had to learn what I needed to know, but it is what it is.
I did grab a couple courses and obviously have more scribbled notes and tasks to chip away at tonight so I better get cracking! There’s no room for more regret.
It’s official, it was 100% worth all the work to get here. I learnt A LOT today, from several speakers, and met a bunch of people.
It’s soo nice to meet people who just ‘get it’.
They get why I want more, they understand the hunger, why it doesn’t make sense to anyone else, and I don’t have to explain it. They just just know. THANK GOD.
I came away with a bunch of notes with to-do lists scribbled into the margins for after the conference! Although some are easier than others since I was writing in the dark, but hey, all the more reason to get started on actioning them while they’re fresh and I can figure out what I was writing…
At the end of the day, there was a performance by the one and only Flo Rida, but I just couldn’t sit around and listen to music, I’ve done enough of that already… I had a to-do list to tackle! I’ve managed to chip away at a few things, and after writing this entry, I am going to tackle a couple more before doing some yoga and meditation, and getting some decent rest before another epic day.
Monday’s motivational shout out goes out to all the soldiers grinding away on this Christmas Day. Emergency and medical staff, hospitality staff, mothers, fathers, grandparents, and so many more.
These people grind away, day in and day out, no matter what day it is. These are the true grinders worth recognising today!
I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas Day, no matter what you’re doing!
Are you wearing your life, or is it wearing you down?
You only get one life, go and get what you want, see what you want to see, and strut that catwalk of life.
So hit the pavement, hit the gym, hit the books, whatever it’s going to take to get there. You better work that life!
The gold is way down below, further down than you thought you could ever dig.
When you push yourself to the very edges of your comfort zone, or where you ever thought you could possibly get to. That’s when you find out what you’re made of, that you are capable of so much more than you thought, and find your own personal brand of magic.
So dig deep, dig all the way to the bottom, and then dig some more.
