Doing trumps learning.

Writing trumps reading.

Playing trumps watching.

Creating trumps consuming.


Role Models

If your role models can do it, you “can” do it too. ๐Ÿ‘

It’s a different question – if you “want to” do what they have done. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

“Can” is a question of your skills, and more importantly, the choice of your mindset. ๐Ÿ˜‡

“Want to” is a question of your will, and more importantly, the choice of your lifestyle. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Even if you’re not skilled right now, if you set your mind to it, the chances are very high you’ll achieve similar stature and rewards. ๐Ÿ’ช

The key question is – are you willing to adopt a similar lifestyle with a lot of hard work, sacrifices, and hardships? ๐Ÿค”

Most people over-index their lack of skills (to do the work), but under-index their lack of will (to go through hardships). ๐Ÿคจ


Showing Up

Showing up is not easy, but it’s not hard either. So just showing up is not an achievement.

Giving up is easy (it’s painful, but it’s still easy). You have hundreds of reasons to convince yourself to do it.

The real achievement is when you show up again after you’ve given up.

Show up. Again and Again. Every single time.
