Last night I had a solid QnA on my Instagram......
I love the QnAs because I get to answer specific questions rather than guessing what others want me to talk about. Someone asked me how to wake up early on a consistent basis and from there, the other questions got me fired UP to deliver some punches to the face!
We're walking around like we're too weak to even figure out how to wake up early, like it's some complicated formula when really, you just gotta WANT something badly enough that it fires you up to be TOUGH.
The internet is keeping people busy yet not productive.
The most successful people find a way to make the internet work for them.
The others spend countless hours EVERY DAY scrolling up and down, looking at others as they live their lives. They think this is "HUSTLE". No, it is time wasting activity. They are spinning their wheels, they are confused and wondering the what, how and why.
I was fired up and inspired at the same so I spoke in detail about how we are more confused nowadays over the simplest things, yet MORE motivated because of all the videos, mems, etc., yet not evolving or getting better.
Why the irony?
The internet is confusing, that's why!
It's a black hole that sucks you in and kills your time if you allow it to do so.
People keep swiping away on their phones, looking at others and ultimately, not doing enough or much of anything for themselves.
I am equal to blame in this confusion! I keep posting a STRONG Life Tip of the Day and then what?
You get motivated and inspired for a few minutes, maybe for the day, then you wait for me. You wait for others to post their work, all the while you're not doing your OWN work.
On the internet, almost Everything is free and the majority just don't do anything with the free information, they simply wait for the next free thing. It becomes a downward spiral of never truly investing in yourself because you have no skin in the game at a deeper level.
Free tips, Free this, Free that.
Heck, if people would just use the free workouts I provide HERE they would be WAY ahead of where they are now. But it's free, so they don't respect it and don't implement it.
Well, ultimately, NOTHING IS FREE.
Maybe free of money, but NOT free of your time, your dedication, discipline, intensity and effort.
So when people tell me how much I motivate them and they tell me they've been following me for 6 months or 6 years.....
But, they aren't getting anywhere, there is a disconnect there. Again, MY FAULT. I am part of the internet coaches world and jumping on the bandwagon of putting out more and more content which I've seen is only confusing people more.
After years of seeing and hearing this, I spoke with some people who are highly successful in their life and they told me the reason we are "successful" is because we always invested in ourselves by putting skin in the game.
Extreme Ownership reminds me to put the blame on myself here.
Watching endless YouTube and Instagram Videos and doing nothing about it is similar to the obese guy who screams at the TV every Sunday during NFL Season. He is not bettering himself, he is just wsting time watching others live their dreams.
Instead, you need to take ALL of this and put it into strategic action. You love watching NFL on Sundays? Then don't stuff your face with chips and beer, instead, get fired up and do work. What lessons can you learn from this, the inspiration, the tips, etc?
I can motivate you all day, post a bunch of videos on YouTube, etc but too much scattered information with motivational videos and not enough strategic action leaves you confused and ultimately, no further along then you were yesterday or even last year.
You must take strategic action. Every single day with consistency and intensity. I've hit a wall. I don't want to go to the grave being a man who motivated people for the moment and they never grabbed life by the balls and just went for it.
THAT is why I created The STRONG Life Academy.
I had a hard conversation with myself and a few others I trust and realized that all this free information hasn't helped anyone to a deeper level. I decided to create The STRONG Life Academy as a Coaching program and create a curriculum based on your wants and needs.
So before I even load up a members area with info, we're going to survey you, find out your wants and needs and THEN I will create the weekly lessons.
In addition, we'll have live webinars every 2 weeks (recorded in case you miss it). It's going to be created as we go through the course.
Back when guys were flying from all around the world to attend The USC Cert in NJ, they went home and CRUSHED it. There was something special about the Coaches who were fighting for the information and investing in themselves.
You could just see, They felt that inner pull to take action because they invested in themselves at a much higher level than the "normal" person. I'm not into to working with average and normal. This is why I love coaching the college wrestlers, it feels like I'm working with the Special Forces of the D1 College Sports Level.
Not everyone wants to win and I get that. I'm cool with that, as long as I don't have to work with that type of person!
But for the hard chargers and success driven people, you want to put your message out there and change lives. You want to change your OWN life. It happens through strategic work.
You need direction.
I need direction.
We all need the direction to guide us.
Watching others on the internet living their OWN lives might inspire you and some might be educated enough to do work, but for the most part, I haven't seen enough people gain enough strategy and knowledge to make change happen at a bigger level.
And because time is the ONLY thing we lose and then can never gain back, I get fired up because I see how fast it all goes by.
I've always said that my mentors and the coaching groups I've been part of are the big reasons behind why I keep attacking and moving forward. It's not easy, but nothing worth having ever is easy.
I also feel very rude turning down and being slow on my e mail replies, I just don't have the time anymore to do the 1 on 1 consults with my schedule. I've found the 1 on 1 work to not be as powerful as being part of a team, which is always more powerful and inspiring.
Think about the top tier military units.
They operate together.
It's like you become unstoppable when you're running with a pack of hungry wolves, I love it!
As Louie Simmons always says, "Run with the lame and you develop a limp"
Time goes too fast and I don't wanna experience anymore regrets in my life than I already have.
For the hard chargers, The STRONG Life Academy is being built for YOU. No Guess work, just tailor made for You.
