Sleep Your Way To Success
This is it, Freedom Chaser.
What you see in the mirror is it.
This isn’t a PSA about YOLO or the cliché that we have no second chances.
I’m talking about success, and what success looks like. It looks like you, right now.
We sometimes give in to this fantasy that the “successful you” has everything figured out.
We’ll somehow become more sophisticated, less stressed out and a lot more confident than we are now.
And it’s romanticized in the media too.
Elon Musk is this hyper focused and confident billionaire putting rockets in the sky.
Mark Cuban always has the smartest things to say, never seems phased by anything and his next moves are always classified as “the next big thing”.
But did they suddenly become that way when the billions showed up, or were they always like that? I think they’ve always had that in ‘em.
We can’t binge on Netflix until we are successful.
We can’t sleep our way to success, nor can we game our way to success (well some people do, but we won’t hold that against them).
We have to be awake and deliberate every step of the way.
So how do you become a hyper success?
Realize that the success we are going to be tomorrow is 100% based on the success we are today, right now.
You won’t wake up in 5 years and suddenly have the island and the private jet.
But I can promise you that the ONLY path to get there is to focus on making the person you look at in the mirror today, be the best person you can be.
Comment below and tell me: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Super! Thanks for reading all the way to the end. If you liked this banter, it would mean a lot to me if you hit the heart on this post. That would ensure other amazing people like you will see it too.
