This is a huge thank you and a love letter from me to all of my family, friends, and team. When I see how far I've come this year, not to mention how much I've grown and changed in the last few years, I'm completely humbled and grateful.
All change starts out from a place of dissatisfaction. It comes from the deep-seated knowledge that life can and will be so much greater and amazing than you ever thought. It comes from the place of daydreams. It comes from the place of actualization. From a place of belief. From a place of struggle.
2017 was a struggle for me. It was a fight. I got knocked down. And I got back up. I got knocked down again. And again. And again.
Like the saying goes, "Get knocked down 7 times. Get up 8 times."
It doesn't matter how many times you get knocked down. It only matters that you get back up again.
The lesson that 2017 truly taught me was all the different ways I could get back up again. I learned to rely on my family, friends, and team. Just like I'm there when they get knocked down, they were there for me.
For a lot of people, 2017 was a year of discord and strife. Of intolerance and bigotry. Of division and isolation.
Change starts from a place of dissatisfaction. And 2017 was filled with a lot of dissatisfaction.
That's where our movement comes in. I end every video with the same message:
The way to change the world is by starting with yourself. Winning your dreams is so much more than just "taking" them. It's about improving yourself, then supporting your family, friends, team, and community.
By making yourself a better place.
That's why I'm so grateful for Brendon Burchard and the High Performance Academy. I had tried a lot of things to get my life on track.
It's not anything that hasn't been said before. It was just said in a way that made sense to me.
It affected me.
It changed me.
Change is a very powerful thing. It's fragile. It's precious. It's rare. It's like a candle in a windstorm.
This is the cool part. It's easy. And super simple.
Through repetition and community.
That's why we do what we do. We support each other. We check in. We have monthly calls for Go Win Monthly. We teach each other. We learn from each other.
2017 was a year that a lot of us fell down. 2018 will be the year that we help each other get back up.
2018 has me beyond excited! It starts with the courage to dream again. The commitment to accomplish that goal. Partnering with a coach or a mentor to achieve your dreams faster. Then accessing a community to support you and your dreams.
I have some really exciting stuff planned to help you achieve your dreams in 2018. I'll talk to you after the new year!
