The message woke me just after 3 this morning.
Replaying events from the previous 24 hours.
Asking to be shown what I was missing.
Which is when it hit me:
There’s a shit-ton of sheep walking around in wolves clothing.
Now before you get all uppity with me,
I have no problem with sheep.
I think they’re really cute and fluffy and they don’t bother me.
I pay them no attention.
What I do have an issue with is when these sheep put on wolves clothing,
saying they take a stand for success,
for the greatness in others,
for levels of excellence,
When you listen to their words it’s laced with labels and excuses.
Of why others should be wrapped in cotton wool,
play within the confines of their fears,
be inspired by those who drive themselves hard,
and that I should be more understanding and sympathetic of the fact that when they see the big picture people get overwhelmed and stuck.
here’s my thing:
I could choose to buy into that bullshit,
god knows I did for ages,
and I could let you off the hook.
I could take your hand, cajoling you with tender words,
taking a decade to get you to move an inch.
Bless those who were born with the patience to do this.
I am not one of them.
And I refuse to make myself wrong just because I’m different.
I didn’t come here to work with those who allow their fears and their excuses to get bigger than their desires.
You want it,
You fucking go for it as if your arse is on FIRE!
Stop being such a wimp and start remembering who the fuck you are!
That you have greatness inside of you.
That when you put your mind to it,
when you fucking decide,
you WILL make it happen.
In my opinion majority of society has become soft.
Why don’t you get off the couch and go climb the mountain that you fly over in your online games,
in the dark,
on your own,
facing your demons,
having to make the true choice of life or death,
and then maybe you will start appreciating just how resilient you can be when the cards are on the table?
I did – it changed me at my very core.
If I, a middle aged crocked up old bat, can do it, so can you!
ZERO EXCUSES TOLERATED!
Thinking that playing your games makes you a badass warrior is nothing more than the machine keeping you distracted from your actual life.
Wake the fuck up!
Your constant desire for instant gratification makes you impatient for greatness.
Wake the fuck up!
Your buying in to the fact that you have to help everyone around you is nothing more than a get out of jail for free card for those who refuse to do the work.
Wake the fuck up!
I am no stronger than those around me.
I simply choose to do the work whilst they are walking around calling themselves lazy or uninspired or undisciplined or tired, as if it’s a disease that they are not responsible for!
All the time,
mediocrity is suffocating the true artists and creatives of our time.
Now if you really want to get me on my soap box,
let’s start talking about how dedication, discipline, obsession with excellence is being criticised.
How those of us committed to our art is constantly told that we need to get more balance in our lives,
that we need to slow down,
that we’re going to burn out,
that we’re just too much,
too full on,
that we shouldn’t expect others to have the same standards as us.
Have you forgotten the obsession of the true masters of past?
Or do you not value mastery?
Do you just want to be bloated with average?
Do you just want to settle for barely enough?
I doubt it – not if you’re in my space.
Stop allowing others to put their average Poppycock on you!
Humanity needs every single high achiever to stop tolerating ‘good enough’.
Stop allowing the sheep to creep in under your skin, making you feel guilty for your passion, your fire, your focus, your ambition.
Stop allowing the sheep to climb onto your back expecting you to carry them to the finish line because ‘they don’t have what it takes’.
That’s complete and utter hogwash!
Everyone has what it takes.
We are all created equal.
I refuse to see the victim in others.
I will not speak to the weakness in them.
I have too much respect for you.
I see your soul.
I see your magnificence.
If that makes you uncomfortable,
that’s your story and I will not allow it to become mine.
We also have free will.
Don’t allow others choice of ordinary hold you back.
You are NOT responsible for them.
The only person you are responsible for is YOURSELF.
And here’s another thing:
If you truly desire FREEDOM,
you have to take full RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE!
THAT my friend is where freedom resides.
Freedom from victimhood.
Freedom from your own excuses.
And No, I don’t think you need to be protected from your fear.
I believe that
if you have the capacity to visualise the vision,
you have the capacity to create the vision.
In the presence of fear.
In the presence of doubt.
In the presence of having no fucking clue of the how.
But where you won’t create it is in the presence of sheep!
So my invitation to you today is to decide,
without shame or judgement,
that shit will keep you stuck and hurting like a mofo:
Are you a sheep,
or are you a wolf?
If you’re a sheep please unsubscribe from me.
Honestly, nothing I say will ever make sense to you.
It will make you feel bad and you will simply walk around sulking every day instead of living the life of a sheep – blissfully slow and happy grazing in the meadow surrounded by sheep, feeling safe.
And if you’re a wolf,
for the love of popsicles,
stop surrounding yourself with sheep!
Stop slowing down waiting for the gravy train.
And those who are truly part of your pack will not only match your speed,
they will accelerate and challenge you to keep up.
In these moments you will feel more alive than you ever thought humanly possible.
THIS my friend,
I have space for a new client.
This client is someone who is powerful, confident, and successful.
He or she is someone who despite having achieved some remarkable feats in the past, is ready and hungry for more.
He or she is ready to receive support to achieve the goal that feels ‘impossible’ right now.
If that’s you, apply today.
only death is inevitable.
Thriving is always the choice of the brave.
With true love and appreciation for you,
