Are you playing to win in life or are you just going to settle with what you know?
This is a question I have recently asked myself because I got so fed up with settling with what I know. That was also the reason why I decided to learn more, grow more, earn more and push myself beyond my comfort zones to be better than who I was the day before.
Why are you pushing yourself so hard?
The reason why I choose to push myself so hard and set high standards is because I want a better life for myself, family and my friends in my inner circle of network. The more that I grow as an individual the more it positivity it inspires, influences and impacts those around me and create more leaders that are willing to step up in their lives and win more.
Why are you so obsessed with winning?
We aren’t born to win or lose but we do have a choice in how we live our lives and how we choose to create what we love in our lives, if you are fortunate to read this then you are in a far better position than 80% of the population that doesn’t have access to what you have right now, the roof over your head, the food, the technology and people that love you. People will DIE to have what you have right now. Why not make it count while you can?
We can complain and moan about the little problems and challenges that we face or we can rise above it and be solution focused and overcome them, to every problem there’s a solution. You have to be forward thinking and creative to create what you want.
Are you not afraid of the failures?
To be honest, I have failed in so many areas of my life already that I stopped caring whether I fail or not, I just don’t have time to sob over my losses when I can be focusing on creating my wins.
Are you willing to settle with what you know?
There are so many unconscious limitations that take place in all areas of our lives that stop us from achieving what we want in life but some of us are constantly trying the same thing and expect a different result because we only know what we know. That is why learning and being solution focused is so key in life. The more you learn about something, the more you realise that you don’t know.
We constantly look for answers from the outside, mentors, books, videos, articles, internet. Your Intuition already knows the answer and many of us aren’t willing to look from within because we are so afraid of what we can create unconsciously.
Sounds scary right?
Your intuition already knows what you love, what you can create, what you can do and knows what is possible but your mind is constantly sabotaging you from following through because it just wants to keep you safe and put limitations on you from getting what you want.
How much results do you want in your life?
If you want results in your life, you have to be willing to play the game and overcome the challenges and the rejections that come with it, that is how you become the person you need to be to get what you want. It doesn’t come easy and it does require hard work.
Are you creating what you love in life?
We tend to settle for jobs that we don’t like and we don’t enjoy, we go to work being unfulfilled and empty but because it is what we think we are only good at, we are willing to settle for it and not look outside for better opportunities or we are too comfortable with what we have that we aren’t willing to change.
The question is, are you in or are you out?
It may not be quick but life is not a sprint, it is a marathon in any areas of your life. Are you playing the life game to leave a legacy you and your family? Or are you playing life as a number that fits the system?
