Because They Said You Couldn’t – Mindset Behind Success
This is a really amazing motivation youtube video about the mindset behind success. Yes, the video is a bit long but I do believe that it is actually worth your time. Instead of a fixed mindset, why not focus on the growth mindset? There is no better way to cultivate a growth mindset then to watch video snippets of the really successful. Success, of course is never easy. Let us hear and learn from some of the best and most recognisable successful figures of our time. After watching this video, I have selected some of the best quotes in this video to continue to inspire me and maybe it inspire you as well.
So whatever you feel in your heart and your gut, you should follow that. Follow that. And then it changes one day, it is fine too but just follow that. You are the only that knows, no one knows.
Don’t let anyone tell you what your best is, no one knows what your best is. And work at it. You can have whatever you want; it just takes work.
I never view myself as particularly talented. Where I excel, is ridiculous, sickening work ethic. While the other guy is sleeping, I am working. While the other guy is eating, I am working.
Nobody works harder than me inside the octagon or outside the octagon. I am a work horse!
Work your butt off. You know why you fail, is because you never work hard enough. I never want to lose competition or lose an election because I never work hard enough. I always believe in leaving no stones unturned. Mohammad Ali, one of my great heroes in the 70s,had a great line. He was asked how many sit-ups do you do. And he said, I don’t count my sit-ups, I only count it when it hurts. Because that is when it really counts. That’s what makes you a champion.
I finally realise that there is something inside us that are more than our limits.
There are so many individuals out there who are so talented in different things and never accomplish anything. The world is filled with talented individuals and you probably know many of these people yourself and they never accomplish anything. With talent, has to come preparation has to come comes action has to come development of being able to take those talent, take those skills continue to develop them, continue to sharpen them physically, continue to sharpen them mentally because at some point, your physical talent is going to diminish.
I think when you go through the lowest point in your life, you are kind of open to all of things to try to change it and try to get onto the right path.
