Life isn’t necessarily an easy thing.
It’s full of challenges.
Sometimes, these challenges knock you down, stress you out, and threaten to defeat you.
There may be days when you honestly just feel like giving up.
But today, as I was walking and reflecting a bit on my own alpha journey—I was reminded of something that I discovered whenever I first began to embrace the alpha mentality.
Every single day, we have a new chance to win.
The great thing about life is that it’s full of new beginnings and second chances.
You may not get it perfect on day one.
But if you’re fortunate enough to wake up the next day, you have a whole new chance at your disposal.
This is a whole new chance to live your life, create your destiny, and manifest your own fate.
The problem is that this takes work—and it requires you to take full responsibility for your own existence.
It isn’t easy to look in the mirror and realize that you are the reason for why your life isn’t where you want it to be.
Of Course, We All Have A History
Things have happened to all of us that were outside of our control.
- You may have trauma from your childhood that’s still haunting you.
- You may have heartbreak from your last relationship that’s still tearing you up inside.
- You may have been hurt, injured, or brutalized in your past in any number of different horrific ways.
Look, there’s absolutely no shortage of suffering in this world.
God knows that we’ve all endured at least a bit of it.
And in fairness, maybe you’ve dealt with more of it than most people have had to.
Maybe you were dealt a shit hand in life right from the start.
Maybe on the way out of the womb, the world just kicked you a few times for good measure—and spat on your face just to spite you.
And maybe you had zero control over that.
But guess what?
Life is full of things that we don’t have any control over. (In fact, that’s most of what life is comprised of—things beyond the realm of our control. This is called ‘chaos.’)
And yet, despite that fact, every single day, successful alpha humans persevere and create better lives for themselves.
One of my all-time favorite people to read about and learn from in this regard is Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Is One Of My Greatest Thought Mentors For Exactly This Reason
Now, don’t get me wrong.
Arnold has his faults.
He’s definitely not a perfect person.
But when you read his life story, and you get context on where he came from and how hard he worked to create the life he wanted, you can’t help but to have massive respect for him.
He had every single reason in the world to give up at every step of the journey.
His story was super unique in the sense that he really wasn’t given or handed anything for free.
He literally had to just grind it out and work to make it all happen.
He literally created all of his own opportunities in life.
And yet, he persevered.
He continued onward, despite the difficulties…
And he overcame the challenges.
And guess what?
If Arnold Can Do It, So Can I—And So Can You
Today, I want to encourage you and challenge you.
I want to ask you a really important question. and I really want you to contemplate it.
Today, do you believe that you have the power to change your destiny?
Your answer to this question really dictates everything—because guess what?
If you believe it, you can achieve it.
But if you don’t believe it, you’re going to be much less likely to put the kind of energy and focus into it that you’ll need to invest in order to make it happen.
This is why so many people get stuck in a negative spiral of self-doubt.
The Negative Spiral Of Self-Doubt
They don’t believe in themselves, so they don’t try.
And then, since they don’t try, they don’t see any progress.
And this confirms their belief that they can’t do it.
And thus, the cycle continues.
In these cases, even if the person does try—if they don’t believe in it with their full heart and soul, they’re probably not going to give their best—and then, they’re going to be more likely to stumble and fall in the process.
And when they fall down, they’re going to be less likely to get up and try again—and thus, they’re going to perpetuate the cycle.
They’re going to continue to prove to themselves that they’re incapable of creating a life they love, which will make them believe even less in themselves.
This Is How Death Begins
Not the final death.
I mean being dead while you’re alive—like a shambling zombie without a soul and without consciousness.
This is how the death of the soul begins in all of us.
Thankfully, this condition is 100% reversible.
This is partly some of the work that I do in my Mastermind Tribe.
My Goal Is To Help People To Create Their Ideal Destiny
Every day, I help people to find purpose and make sense of the alpha journey in their lives—helping them embrace the alpha mentality and create the destiny that they truly desire.
To be super specific about my mission, it’s simply this:
I’m on a mission to create a community of ripped, attractive, successful, powerful alpha millionaire leaders with amazing dating lives and relationships.
Listen—every time I speak my mission statement into existence, there’s a little part of me that’s threatened to not believe that it’s possible.
But then I tell that part of myself to just watch and believe—because I’m committed to making it happen.
You’re 100% Capable Of Creating Success For Yourself
Every day, I tell myself to stay focused and put in the work—and it will come with time.
See, destiny isn’t created overnight.
But if you stay true to your course, you’ll definitely make progress.
I see progress every single day.
And guess what progress leads to if you don’t give up?
It ultimately leads to success.
It’s simple math at that point.
- Live long enough
- Try hard enough
- And make a little bit of progress on a daily basis
Well, that’s real.
You may not be able to take that literally to the bank—but you can ‘take it to the bank’ in your belief system and in your life.
So today, look yourself in the eye in the mirror, and ask yourself:
“Do you believe in yourself? Do you believe in your dreams? Do you believe that you have what it takes to accomplish the things you want to accomplish? Do you believe you have what it takes to create your own authentic destiny?”
And here’s the wild part.
Whatever your answer is—it’s going to be true.
And that’s as simple as it gets.
Because every day, we all create some kind of destiny—whether we like it or not.
And whether we’re focused on success or failure—we will always be right.
That’s exactly what we will create.
Today is a new chance to win.
I challenge you to seize it by the horns and make it something awesome.
Go with grace my friends, and never give up your power.
Until next time…
