The Two Types of People, Which One Are You?
“It’s not your fault if you were born in the gutter; but it is your fault if you die there.” – Bill Gates
There are two types of people in this world:
Those who get things done and those who have 10,000,000 excuses why they can’t do it.
A fixed mindset, a fixed routine, no way out!!
I see so many people stuck in their ways. A slave to their own routines.
They’re in their own heads. Is this you? Are you always in your head?
Get out of your comfort zone. Seriously. Do you really truly believe there is no way out?
This cannot be true.
If you want to be successful you have to take an outside perspective on your life. Take some time to analyze your daily routines. A lot of our routines and habits don’t serve us anymore. They probably did at one point, but they need to be updated.
Maybe you’re just in your head? Break free from this fixed way of thinking.
Don’t have time? Really?
I see people that are struggling to get in-shape or struggling to make money. When I ask them “ok, well, did you workout this week?” or “did you read a book today?” the response is always the same: “I don’t have time.”
Dude, you make time for whatever is a priority in your life.
Trust me. It’s just priorities. Like I say time and time again, whether you’re Elon Musk or Bill Gates or a single parent with three children, we all have 24 hours in a day.
The busiest people in the world, who are far busier than you, have 24 hours in a day. Just like you.
Oh, you mean, for that! I was gonna say…
When someone says they don’t have time, always add “for that” at the end.
They don’t have time FOR THAT.
People always make time for the things they really want. If someone wants to watch their favorite show they make time for it, but when it comes to something that can improve your life, they always say they don’t have time. In reality they don’t have the vision to see that a little pain today will establish a routine that will massively change your life tomorrow.
Again, it’s just an excuse. It might make them feel better to have an excuse as a defense mechanism, but I think truly deep down they know. Everyone can exert some sort of control over their own circumstances.
Life is too short for excuses!!
You’ve heard this before, but have you ever taken the time to internalize this truth? Like really think about it and FEEL it in your body and soul? People throw this saying around all the time, but it doesn’t really impact them. It doesn’t force a change.
So what is it that you want?
Do you want more money in your account? Another source of passive income? A new physique? More time with family? You want to give more to your church? You want to have more options? More time for activities and leisure? You want to impact the world?
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Whatever it is you want, make time for it.
Time is the most valuable thing we have, so don’t waste it.
Seriously, just try things out, experiment
Take advantage of the opportunities when they make themselves available. Keep trying new things. How do you know if something won’t work unless you give it a try?
Worst thing that can happen is you remain where you are. Nothing changes. So where’s the risk?
I’ll tell you where the risk is, you remaining stagnant and chained in your current problematic situation!
The biggest risk, is not taking a risk
People have this backwards.
I hear people say so many times, “but that sounds too risky!”
That makes zero sense.
99.99% of the time, staying exactly where you are and not doing anything about your situation is far riskier than trying different things to get out of the rut that you’re in.
Let’s say you have no money, because you’re living paycheck to paycheck. And an opportunity comes by for you to try something new.
How is trying something new the risker option?
Isn’t staying broke living paycheck to paycheck a far greater risk?
What if you lose your job while you’re living pay check to pay check.
That sounds like a bigger risk to me. Not having options sounds like a greater risk to me.
Staying where you are….is the greater risk.
