Now, I’m shooting this Daily Growth Hack for you because I’m getting a lot of questions about this. And the questions aren’t about excuses, they’re about actually pushing forward and how to do it. And people that have actually gone through and set up their 30 or 90-day plans, but haven’t done the work necessary. And so, what I wanna remind you is a story that you’ve all heard before, and that’s about a Spanish explorer Cortes, and when he landed in Veracruz. One of the first things that he did is he told his men, “You can either fight, or you can die,” and he burned the ships. Now, this eliminated the third option, right? They could have fought and won, they could have died, or they could have got back on those ships and headed back to Spain. But by eliminating one of those excuses, those men fought and they fought very hard. And of course, you know the end of this story, they actually won.
So what I want you to do in this very short Daily Growth Hack, is look at your Five to Thrive. Look at your goals that you have; we have a few more months in the year if you’re listening to this … Depending on when you actually pick up your Daily Growth Hacks. And I wanna look at the end of the year and see how close you are to actually hitting those goals. Now, what I want you to look is, what are your excuses for not hitting those goals? Then I want you to burn the ships. Look at your excuses for not hitting your goals. Why aren’t you at the weight you wanna be? Why aren’t you as strong as you wanna be? Why aren’t you meditating? Why isn’t your business bringing home the gross, the net and your own take-home pay that you deserve? Why isn’t your relationship a 10 out of 10? What’s going on there, and what are your excuses?
And then what I want you to do, is look at that journal and scratch it out, and burn your ships. It’s time to get to work everyone; this is your life, and I want you to have the best you possibly can. Put those excuses in front of you, and then put the real reasons and the why you’re going to achieve them. And that way you know that every time you step up against that wall of that excuse, you have the power to push through, go over, go around, dig under, whatever you need to do to get it done. It’s time to burn the boats. This is your life, you’ve got one life to live, make it an epic one.
