Well, well, what is up crew? Welcome to Daily Mind Medicine. Hope you're fantastic. Hope that you are enjoying the show.
We are back. We are back, and we are live. And it's a lot of fun. And if you are enjoying the show, here's my request.
My request is simply that you share it if it is impactful for you. Now, if you listen to the show under duress and you don't get anything from it, then don't share.
Don't share it. Don't do that. Don't be that person. In fact, just stop listening because life is too short to do things that you hate doing.
But if you are benefiting from it, it would make me so happy for to know that you're sharing it with people and leaving us a review and all of those things.
That is my deepest, most sincere request for you today and it makes everything worth it. Let's talk about the difference between greatness and temporary success.
The difference between greatness and temporary success. I was thinking about this because I've had a lot of my life has been blessed.
I've had so many great relationships in partnerships and friendships and ac acquaintances, allies. I've been doing this quite a long time at this point, coming up on a decade.
And you gotta, I'm young, like I'm 33 years old. I will be 34 in a couple of months, and I got to start early.
And man, there's a lot of, when you look back at my life, there's a lot that I'm grateful for in, in regards to timing.
But I've noticed that there are some people who achieve from e motivation of escape. They're really motivated by fear more than anything else.
They may get successful, they may get some money, they build a good business, but they do it. They almost do it from a standpoint like under duress, you know, like they've just gotta not be poor.
And I've found that these people typ typically are the, it's, they're the easiest to get knocked down once they achieve whatever it is they're trying to achieve.
They'll make some money, they'll get their bank account filled up, they'll get their debt paid off, and then they tend to coast because the reason for their existence was to not be a loser or to not be poor, or to not be broke, or to escape some imaginary prison that they feel like they needed to escape.
And when that reason is complete, they have no more drive to go on and do greater things and they coast.
And that coasting puts them back into the exact same situa scenario and situation that they were trying to escape. Contrast this with the folks who tend to have not an away motivation, but a towards motivation.
They are driven by building things that they are proud of. They're driven by the game. You take a person who is truly great and you reset them like a clock, you take away their fame, their wealth, Their contacts, and they'll just climb again, take it away again.
They'll just climb again, take it away again. They'll just climb again. And every time they enjoy it more and they do it a little bit faster than the time before.
Whereas the first type of person that's really trying to escape something or prove something to themselves, they will achieve it.
And they are so afraid of losing it that they stop taking risks. They stop pushing forward, they stop inventing, they stop creating.
My challenge for you is to identify which type of person you are and to begin doing the work necessary to fit into the second mold of human.
The way that you do this is you take your goals and you make them bigger and to the best of your ability.
Make them focus on external things, other people, other situations, contributions that you can make. Like the, the wealthiest people I know are the most focused on just providing value to the world at large.
They're not focused on themselves at all. Anyways, just some thoughts for you today. Adios. Let's crush.
