Giavanni has a dream .... and won't stop until it's achieved. Along the way, however, he's inspiring millions of others to CATCH their dreams.
One day. One step.
Don't quit, no matter how long it takes or how much struggle you must endure. Use any hate as fuel and motivation to prove them wrong. The only person that can stop you is the one looking back in the mirror. One day.
If you have the correct information and are dedicated to putting in thousands of hours, time is the only thing standing between you and your goals.
Lose the idea that is should happen now, next week, or next month. It'll happen when you accept the fact that it won't happen now. Little by little, your dream will piece itself together, until BOOM ...
A 1% Separation Factor is the ability to wait out the storm, while the 99 thrash and flail, unwilling to sit still.
This topic is so important, it must be repeated! I've received many emails lately, complaining about how difficult things are, and why moving towards goals sometimes feels impossible. Although, I can sympathize with each and every one, and definitely understand how tough life can be, one fact still remains ...
We only have two choices: Predator or Prey. No matter what happens to us, how unfair things are, or who's hating on us, we either sit and wait to be devoured, or we attack fearlessly.
All the reasons "why it's too hard" mean nothing in the end. There comes a time in everyone's life where enough has to be enough - standing up and fighting becomes the only way to survive. Make a choice the second you finish reading this - quit every excuse you regularly make, and become the predator!
Your dreams should inspire others. They should motivate the person silently watching to strive after his dream - one that he thought impossible to attain. While you're putting in the work for your personal goals, remember the achievement of those goals may change someone's life!
If pain isn't a daily experience, you're not doing enough. It needs to scare you - make you wake up every morning and give extra thought to it's achievement. Your bar needs to be raised past the point of the 99's wildest imagination. If you want to become the 1%, you must be willing to shoulder a load of expectation most wouldn't dream about. This either frightens you into submission or excites you into action.
"Easy" will never be a part of the equation, but "worth it" will always be there to celebrate with at the end. To join the elite group of 1%rs, fear must be something that haunted you in the past, now giving way to risk. You must be able to dive into an empty pool, knowing somehow, someway, water will appear before you hit bottom. Call it faith or self belief, but possession of it IS mandatory.
Are you ready? Do you have what it takes? Game time!
When it comes to reaching the next level, I'm black and white on the subject ... you either do what's uncomfortable or remain where you are. You sacrifice easy for difficult or continue complaining about what you don't have. Dive into a pool that has no water in it, knowing water will somehow appear before hitting bottom, or climb back down and wallow in fear.
You either do or you don't, period!
Will you complain about what others have achieved, focusing on how "unfair" the world is, or will you be an example for your kids and peers, showing them you attain what you work for? Luck doesn't exist - it's a result of your consistent thoughts, efforts, and ability to never quit in the face of adversity. You make your own luck.
There's no grey area when striving for a plateau the 99 can't fathom reaching. You either will or you won't. The 1% only have one option!
Often, the most difficult thing to do on the path to "ridiculousness" is making that first committed decision. Once you've chosen and committed every fiber in your body to your goal ... BOOM ... it's going to happen for you!
If you want new, you gotta DO new. If your goals are achieving what the majority can't ... you gotta do what the majority won't!
Everyone wants to be "successful," but very few will sacrifice old habits to make it happen. It's not supposed to be easy ... it's supposed to be agonizing. Accept the fact that rising to the top is what reaching the top is all about - the highs and lows, laughs and tears are what makes the trip so exhilarating. Sure, sticking out your chest to break the finish line is worth the fight ... but remember, just on the other side of that finish line is another race. It never stops. You never "get it." You only get better AT it, improving the times of your race - the efficiency of your journey.
Think differently, act differently, create a lifestyle in which only the 1% can relate. Surround yourself with like minds who push and support you during the pain and struggle. This isn't a mantra or a resolution ... it's a way of life!
Statistics don't make you ... you make the statistics!
They're made from people who don't believe they can go beyond what the numbers have said for years. Only a small, special few have come along and said to themselves, "I don't care what the stats have said in the past, I can and will change them!" Why can't that be you?
If you don't believe you can go above and beyond what others have done in the past, regardless of the odds, you've instantly limited your success. I used to believe in statistics and only thought I could reach a specific level in my life, but over time and consistent battle against that instinct, I've proven myself and THEM wrong!
Don't believe what they tell you - if you want something, and can't stop thinking about it 25/8, 366, then you must attack. Statistics were created by those who couldn't see beyond impossible. The 1%, however, are Driven By Impossible. Be the 1%!
