Still thinking about how to find your mission?
Well, at some stage in your life, you will need to make a choice.
Will you stay average and play small or choose a different life?
You can choose to reach your full potential.
This is a lifelong mission and if you choose to accept this mission you will need some guidelines.
24 Rules For Your Mission If You Choose To Accept It:
(1)Your Mission Of Success Will Be Hard.
If you choose to go for it you have already distinguished yourself from most men on the planet.
Most settle for mediocrity.
The fact that you make the choice to jump and see if your parachutes open means you have courage.
You will need it because it's going to be hard, many will quit and fall back to where they came from.
But you are in the game and knowing this reality make you ready for all the shit that it's coming this way.
Congratulations for taking action and going after your dreams.
(2)Winning Is A Conscious Choice.
Winning in life is a conscious choice.
When you decide to go after success and try and reach the goals you have to make a choice that nothing will stop you and you will not quit no matter what.
You will be faced with incredible adversity and hardship that might take you years to overcome.
You must make a choice and find an excuse to win.
If you go in with the mindset that “I will try, then stop now”.
Entrepreneurship or any other profession with great challenges are too hard to go in with a half ass attitude.
You need to go all in with this game or you will lose before you started.
Winning is a conscious choice.
You can quit and live with that for the rest of your life or you can choose to fight.
(3)You Exist In A Different World.
You will now exist in a Different World.
You make your own rules.
There are no more weekends and days off.
Every day is a Friday and every day is a Monday.
You are on a mission now and those days and holidays are meaningless for you.
You live in a world where most people never even think of going.
Like Elon Musk said.”Starting a business is like staring into the abyss and eating glass”.
That's exactly what it is.
It's going to ask everything of you.
For you to overcome that you will have to accept your new reality, the parallel universe where you are going through will become your home.
It is a wild valley of unexpected turns.
(4)Don't Ever Say I Tried Everything.
Don't ever say “I tried everything and it didn't work”.
Name the last thousand things you tried?
Most people won't be able to name 5 things they tried, yet they will say they tried everything.
Stop bullshitting yourself.
Go and find a way to try another 100 things then go to the library and find a 100 more.
If its important enough for you then you will try it all until you find the one thing that works.
(5)Forget About Overnight Success.
If you think you will be successful overnight then you are playing the wrong game.
Overnight Success is a myth.
It's a myth created by marketers and bullshitters to sell you the quick fix so they can get their $100 dollars out of your pocket.
All those Instagram accounts with the Ferraris and Lamborghinis and heaps of cash are fake.
The guy rented it to shaft you and you fell for it.
When people become successful “overnight” it's usually fake news.
What they don't tell you is the amount of work the guy put in leading to that one breakthrough.
They years or failure and then the years getting up an trying again.
Learning and adapting and finally mastering his craft.
If you are looking for overnight success you will look forever.
There is no way for you to succeed in your mission without you becoming better at life.
You need to figure out how to improve yourself.
When you improve your business or job will improve and your whole life will improve.
This means constant improvement in all areas of life.
Read books, go to seminars, listen to podcasts and do whatever you have to do but get better.
Go to the gym getting stronger and fitter.
Learn about food and improve the way you eat and become conscious about what you put in your body.This is how you build power in life.
(7)Learn New Skills.
So I just mentioned becoming better as a human.
But you also need specific skills.
Specialized knowledge for whatever you are going to do.
It might be Marketing, Math, Accounting, Sales or Writing.
Whatever it is found book or courses online and read about your field.
Recently I read an Accounting book For Dummies to improve my accounting skills.
It helped me a lot, those Dummy books are awesome.
I'm not an accountant and I can hire one for my company.
However, now I have a good understanding of accounting so I can have a better discussion with my accountant about my business and money.
The book cost me $20 and I didn't have to spend thousands of dollars at a university to learn about it.
I did the same with investment and many other fields.
Elon Musk of Tesla and Space x taught himself Rocket science by reading books about it.
He didn't study Rocket science at university.
We have a lot of knowledge at our fingertips to acquire new skills.
However, the choice is yours if you will take it or not.
(8)Focus And Rationality Will Be your Allies, Emotion Will Be Your Enemy(mostly).
One of the Downsides of modern society is that men have fallen into the trap of emotional addiction.
The universe is yin and yang, hard and soft. Male and female.
Men have strengths and females have theirs.
The female's power and weakness is emotion.
They know how to use the power of emotion to get what they want and also as a means to bond with other females.
That's great and we don't have a problem with that.
However, the problem is that modern culture has been taken over by a feminist culture dominated by emotion.
Emotions and feelings are now the most important guidelines for how to act. If you are weak and a man that has been seduced by the ocean of emotion then you need to unfuck yourself.
It's not in a man's nature to be guided by emotion, you will lose all your power if you're drowning yourself in emotion.
You need to go back to your strengths. Rationality and focus.
The masculine superpower is rationality and focus.
When you bring these powers to the surface you can be unstoppable.
Don't let the sensitivity of the female emotion seduce you and make you weak and off purpose.
Let them bounce off you as you take the sword of rationality and destroy anything in your path.
(9)You Have To Become Obsessed.
Obsession is your ally. You must live and breath your mission.
If you don't know your mission then figure it out.
Once you have your mission written down, carry it with you and review it daily.
Now become obsessed with it and focus and align all your resources and time with your mission.
Everything you do must be aligned with this mission, everything else takes a back seat.
Don't let people try and tell you that you changed or they like the “old you”.
Those words should be a signal that you are on the right path.
(10)Become The Water and Adapt.
Things will go wrong and things will not always go as planned.
When this happens average frustrated chumps give up.
You are different, so you must adapt when you hit a wall.
When you hit a wall make a door and go through.
Bruce Lee famously said:
“Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot”
For you to reach greatness you have to adapt.
(11)Accept The Loneliness.
When you are on purpose and on your way to creating massive success in your life you will experience times of loneliness and isolation.
This is the path of the entrepreneur and artist.
Solitude is part of the creation process.
You need to make these feelings your friends and find ways to overcome them when darkness knocks on your door.
The good news is that you will expect their arrival and will not be surprised when loneliness and isolation knock on your door.
(12)Live The Process.
Focusing too much on the outcome will paralyze you.
It will stop you from taking action and lead to procrastination.
Most new businesses fail and never get off the ground because they never take action.
Don't be one of those stories.
Focus on the process and take action every day, before you know it you will have reached your goal.
Don't overthink, take action.
The process is where the gold is.
(13)Make It A Must To Be Successful.
Decisions are powerful.
You need to make a choice that you will succeed.
You need to decide that you will do whatever it takes to reach your goals.
You will overcome whatever tries to stop you.
You will adjust, change course and do whatever you have to make your goals a reality.
(14)Forget about Passion.
The idea of passion or being passionate is overrated.
Passion is a feel-good word.
How about obsession and execution?
Those are my types of words.
Passion is an idea or feeling people like to talk about.
The direct masculine power of obsession and execution will blast passion out of the water.
It will step on it and go on to win.
Nobody cares about your feelings.
Got a headache?
Had a rough week or night?
Your girlfriend left you?
You feel upset about what someone said?
Someone send you mean tweet and now you can't work?
Are you offended by someone else's opinion?
Here is the most important thing to remember.
Nobody cares about your feelings.
In the world of men, your feelings are not even relevant in a conversation.
The only thing that matters is the actions you take and the results you get.
Forget about telling people that you feel bad about not getting everything you wanted in the meeting.
Or not having enough money to start your business.
Nobody cares about your feelings.
In the modern culture, people enjoy victim hood and want the pat on the back before they start moving.
If you are that person then stop now.
It's a loser attitude.
The reality is that nobody cares about your feelings.
In the real world, winners care about ideas, solutions, execution, and results.
(16)Courage Will Be Your Biggest Weapon.
You will need courage on this mission, lots of it.
You will be confronted by a lot of shit.
Fear will be something that will constantly be in your face.
You will doubt yourself and question why you are doing what you are doing.
When that happens you need to pull out your courage and push forward.
You need to overcome whatever fear comes up.
Fear will be the hyena that follows you.
Make friends with fear and kick it in the face.
(17)Get Specialized Knowledge.
You cant just wing things.
You will need specialized knowledge in whatever business or venture you are going into.
The good news is we live in a knowledge economy.
Knowledge is literally at your fingertips.
All you have to do is take it.
(18)Invest In Yourself.
You must Invest In Yourself.
There is no way around it.
If you don't invest in yourself then why should anyone else?
Stop spending money on shit that brings you nothing like Netflix subscriptions or other garbage.
Instead, buy an information product that will teach you what you need.
What is an information product?
Well, books are the simplest form.
But you can also buy video courses, audio course and go to seminars.
Do what whatever it takes to succeed. It starts by investing in yourself.
Make yourself valuable then give it back to the world.
You will be rewarded for it.
(19)This Is The Real Deal.
This not a hobby or something you are trying.
This is the real deal.
This is as real as it gets.
You have to fight.
If you are dabbling and thinking this is just something you are trying then you will lose.
The world of business and entrepreneurship is too intense and competitive to just dick around.
You need to go all in
Don't be a dabbler.
(20)Self Discipline Will Be Your Foundation.
There will be no bigger ally than your old friend self-discipline.
If Self Discipline is not your friend yet then you need to introduce yourself.
You need to embrace the power of discipline.
Discipline will set you free.
It will allow you to do whatever you want with your life if you allow its power to dominate your life.
When you form an alliance with self-discipline your life will transform. Self Discipline will set you free.
(21)Keep Your Vision In The Background and Stay In The Trenches.
Your vision drives you but you have to learn to let that vision stay in the background every day.
You need to focus on execution every day.
That means focusing on the process and getting your feet dirty.
The trenches will become your home.
(22)Nobody Owes You Anything.
You are entitled to nothing.
Don't fall for the modern culture trap of thinking the world owes you something.
You are not a victim and the world owes you nothing.
We live in a sad reality where many people think that they are entitled to a great life and that the world should just give them stuff so that they can be happy.
Here is the news flash.
If you think that way then you are a delusional bitch.
The world owes you nothing.
You need to earn your right to walk on the top of the mountain.
There are no helicopter rides to the top of Everest.
You need to climb the mountain, there are no shortcuts.
Whatever you are thinking in terms of your future you need to think bigger.
In fact, you need to think so big that people think you are crazy.
Let them call you unrealistic and not in touch with reality.
Dreaming is a great thing and turning them into reality is what greatness and genius are all about.
People first laugh at you and then come asking you later how you did it.
Its all in the way you think.
If you dream small you will get small results.
Dream big and execute and you will be surprised what how big your results will be.
Don't let anybody ever limit your thinking.
(24)Patience Must Become Your Friend.
Being patient will be something you will have to learn.
In a world of instant gratification, this is hard for many people to understand.
Overnight success is a myth.
It does not exist.
It is something that was created by marketers to sell stuff to gullible people.
To become successful you will have to work hard, you will have to put in the time before you will be rewarded for your hard work.
The biggest mistakes are made when you are not being patient.
The only way to change your life is to be patient and do the work.
