If you want a life on your terms I would suggest you to “brainwash” yourself with your role models as this is a very effective way of making it happen so much faster!
We all know it, we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. Who are you trying to fool? Just look around and you will soon realize just how true this statement actually is and how it is impacting your every day life. I am not saying you have to change it but you should be aware of it because it might hold you back (especially if you are an achiever!).
“Love your family but choose your friends and choose them carefully because of the impact they will have on the quality of your life!”
The above statement is still true but with a quite significant difference….
The impact of internet!
Whilst most of us are still the average of the five people we spend most time with, the boundaries have changed massively with the accessibility of internet (more or less world-wide)! What this means is that you can now use it to your advantage! Just a click away, you have access to a whole world of inspiration! Nothing is off limit so you can constantly access whoever you want and listen and learn from them 24/7 (at least when you don’t have to focus on work..). Never in the history of the world have we had this availability of inspiration at our fingertips as we have today, allowing for a brainwash of your choice. You can listen to podcasts from your role model or interviews with them all the time!
Listen to your friends, spend time with them, have fun with them BUT don’t let their negativity or limited mindset impact your way of thinking, being or doing!
You can brainwash yourself into becoming whoever you want, you can accomplish whatever you want, there is no doubt about that. Success doesn’t happen by chance and it leaves clues so there are for sure strategies you can use to guarantee your success (if you have not started your journey to success yet, just go to our Start Here Section).
There are basically no excuses any longer not to spend massive amount of time with the masters of the universe (and you can choose which universe)! You can have them in your head all the time and let them influence you from the inside and out! This is absolutely magnificent and I use it constantly when out walking etc. as I find it a perfect way of using NET-time (No Extra Time).
Inspiration OR desperation will make you take ACTION!
Before I decided to leave my “successful” job I had a lot of work to do internally and the conformity of society did not make my decision any easier. Walking away from a high-paying job with plenty of holidays, flexibility and own responsibility takes quite a lot. People around me would for sure ask why and question my decision, since to most of them it made no sense! This also made me question myself although I knew inside of me the decision had already been made.
So what I did was to totally brainwash myself with my role models and inspirational speakers. I would literally listen for hours and hours every day (any time I got a chance). By doing this and also attending Unleash The Power Within (UPW) with Tony Robbins I had enough inspirational momentum to make the decision and take the consequences. If I am totally honest, I was pushed both by desperation (I was not growing anymore in my job so I felt as if I was literally dying on the inside!!) and inspiration (total immersion/brainwashing by listening to my mentors and role models).
Use it to your advantage!
It’s so simple it’s almost ridicules how easy it is to get ahead today. We all have access to more or less the same information regardless of who we are and where we are (as long as we have internet).
It is the choices we make that will define our future. The only choice we don’t get to make is when we die, everything else is our choice!
You and only you decide if you are going to spend hours per day binge series on Netflix, spend hours on social media OR actually get ahead of the game by constantly learning new things and improving your skills! The choice is yours and instead of spending the average of FIVE hours per day (as in the U.S) watching TV (which is absolutely mind-boggling and insane!) you could become the expert in your field (or any field you want to learn about) within a couple of years (at max) if you showed the same dedication. Imagine the difference in your life, your self-confidence, your bank statement, your living situation, your family’s situation, your health and over all well-being IF you decided to make that decision today!
We all have that choice, sadly very few seem to realize how easy it would be to become an expert at anything nowadays due to the availability of information AND you could choose any topic you wanted!
I rest my case on this topic, it is too evident to miss how easy it is to knowingly brainwash ourselves and ingrain into our subconscious anything we want to do/become/learn with very little effort. It’s just a click away and it will change your life forever, especially if you immerse yourself and stay committed!
I don’t care if you will lose some friends along the way, I will be there cheering for you all the way to the top and I hope to meet you there sooner rather than later!
