We are running out of time What are you going to, do with the time you have left I say that if you, don’t reposition. Yourself you could, miss the best time In this season of life Because, we have got to change the way, we think, we have got to change the way, we function We have got to change the way, we deal with issues and The reason that you have to begin to reposition the way you think and the way you function and the way you feel Is that we many times are stuck between the lines of? Limited thinking and limited people and limited ideas and limited philosophies and there’s something creative down inside of you saying let there be You need, to walk into our situation, where you’ve been locked up and tied up and tangled up and say let There be light let there be healing let, there be books let, there be change in this city You, have tried four or five or six seven eight nine ten different things Each you worked on ninety, days or so and then said it doesn’t work How can, you be a leader with a 90-day test Of course it didn’t work it and stick to it long enough you didn’t fight hard enough You didn’t, do what it took to win and rather than to correct it and get it right you walked Away, from it and tried something else and for the last 10 15 years in your life, you’ve been on the run From one thing to the next thing to the next thing trying to make all this stuff work, stop it stands till you have to have the courage to, live with, the pressure and the criticism New, levels bring, new devil’s you have to be tough? You have to be tough to be able standing It’s a tough and keeping your kids encouraged, why are you secretly worried to death for yourself It’s a tough i’m getting ready for a. Birthday and don’t have a Birthday, if it’s tough i’m not being able to get the light bill paid and the water bill paid it’s tough But what do we do with these moments do we just have them and go back home And wait for the next one almost like chucky’s getting a fix or smokers smoking a Cigarette are we just a bitterly addicted to moments without being able to take that moment and use it strategically To, do something in our lives you, do not have to accept it the way it is somewhere down inside of you there is creativity We got to break out of the barriers and the limitations and get outside of the box something is about to happen in your life You’ve got to take it one day at A time and when you get to the end of the, days, and i’m not finished But i’ve done everything that i was supposed to do for that day for that For that season Your season is shifting you will be able to do now in a way That you have never been able to do it before you Haven’t sung your best song you haven’t reached. Your best sermon yet you haven’t thought your greatest art You, have written down the greatest idea you haven’t dreamed Your best string maybe you have laughs your best lamb. You haven’t had your greatest a yet is somewhere inside of you? You’re! A miracle looking for a place to happen you have got all kinds of things What up inside of you that are about to come forth for such a time as this The time is right the stage Is set the conditions are in order and something awesome is about to happen in your life, don’t let Anybody, tell you you’re too young don’t let, anybody, tell you you’re told don’t let, anybody, tell you you’re, sitting every, day you Wake up in the morning it’s a sign the best is yet to come? this is my moment and i am determined to live it The mind is the battleground the Fight is in your mind? Are you ready for the next level What are you going to, do with the time you have left If you, live very long at all All of your, youthful idealism, gives way to the harsh realities of life itself When you were a teenager you thought you knew everything But when you got to put everything in practice you found out it wasn’t as easy as you thought it was Life has a way of making you close your mouth life will Mute you shut you down Cuz all of us if you, live long enough will go to a period of feeling so overwhelmed That you think of one more thing if the phone rings one more time if i get another text if i get another email us sometimes i question technology i Appreciate all the advances but i don’t need, another way for anybody. They, were accessed me i Doubt there are very many people in this room that aren’t experiencing, some degree of being overwhelmed by life itself The moments in your, life that you feel overwhelmed, by life by people by, your own issues By, your, own circumstances By demands by, struggles and yes by tensions It’s not long before you feel overwhelmed What is hiding in you? That you have not seen What strength are you under utilizing That you let that weak, thing, whip, you like that How, long will you live without knowing, what you got If you know, who you are then you know, who you are not? If you, don’t know, who you are somebody can Ascribe any identity on to you and you will morph into whatever they Want you to be and that’s what has happened with the whole lot of us some of us have been ten or twelve different people Depending upon who, we will win because, we don’t know, who, we are we become whoever? They, want us to be and then when they leave us we are confused because, we have no real understanding we’d like to think that life comes to us in courses but it does not in Reality sometimes you got ten issues and they all hit you in the same weekend You, may, not like what you’re, going through you it you, may, be stress and overwhelm You, may, not be comfortable with.

Telling you to go back But don’t let, the distractions distract you i like, you, gotta, keep moving don’t stop Separate, what you do from who you are? That’s what the guilt trap is about? All of us have, made some risk mistakes in life all of us have done some things that If we had them to do over again, we wouldn’t do it again a? Lot of things that if i had it to do over again if i knew then What i know now i would have done it differently, well it did happen that way a Lot of us because of our limited vision of ourselves a lot of us who begin to focus on problems and enable them to Overwhelm us, we begin to think that, we have no options, we begin to believe that there’s no way out? You can, always better your best you can, always go beyond anything that you have ever done And i’m saying that the fact that you’re still here but You’re!
still breathing You’ve got some more work and you owe it to yourself so when you get up in the morning but you can look Yourself in the face and say hey i’m living, my life on my terms But i tell you there is some times in life? Where you fall down You, feel, like you don’t have the strength to get back up Pretend that everything’s okay, when it’s not and you go home and lay in your bed when no one’s looking at you when you don’t have to impress anybody and fear comes in You know the fear that you have as soon as you, walk into the doors of your house, when you leave there’s a broken Maybe you have doubt in your life Maybe you don’t know if for sure what’s, gonna be happening in the future and it scares you Maybe about you maybe you’re worried, about what people think of you, what people say, about you is that fear paralyzes you and i just want to, ask you today do you think you have hope and The question is if you died today What dreams? What ideas what leadership, what books What gifts will, die with you Let me tell you something you already know The, world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows it’s a very mean and nasty place and i don’t care how Tough, you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it But every time that happens you get back on your feet you get up just as fast as you can No, matter how, many times you need to do it remember this Success has been and continues to be defined As getting up one more time then you’ve been knocked down And i’m telling you you’re not where you, want to be financially and it’s not gonna take 20 shots You’re, not where you, want to be in your marriage and it’s not gonna take 20 shots you are not where you Want to be in your personal life, you are not the person you Want to be and it’s not gonna take you 20 shots For some of you it’s one more shot for some of you is two more shots and you have not given yourself enough Credit to say i just need to get up a half hour earlier and my Whole life will change i just need to get up one hour early i just need to work one hour longer You for whatever reason you never pursued, those dreams you never acted on those ideas you never use those gifts And there they are standing around. Your bed and looking at You, with large angry, eyes saying, we came to you and only you could have given us life and now We must die with you for i? will not go down, that way i choose to fight back i choose to rise not for i just to live not die And i know i know that what’s within, me is also within you? I’m gonna, stop in that smooth but If you will to make that one change that one sacrifice you would stop dreaming and start living it If you’re, willing to suffer and i mean suffer your brain and your body once connected together can do anything the only, way you’re ever going to get to the other side of this journey is You have got to suffer to grow To, grow. You must suffer so i wanted to change to be the hardest man every created In my goal, when i was sitting there? Not going to school being bullied being and having no self-esteem My, goal, was the only person that’s to turn this person around, is me how. That’s the question how are you gonna do? i Had to build calluses in my, brain the same way i built calluses on my hands so i brought the history World’s record for pulse a long time, ago but i felt it twice and i did? 67,000 pull-ups in trying to break this record so they do 4030 pull-ups i had to do 67,000 for training for that but if you can get through to Doing things that you hate to do On the other side is greatness That’s what people are intended by me running i encounter in my mind i’m not training for a race I’m training for life I’m training for the time and i get that two o’clock in the morning call that my mom is dead or something happens Tragic in life i don’t fall apart I’m training my mind and my body, my spirit so it’s all one so i can handle what life is gonna throw. Every because the life i’ve lived it those are whole If you’re, not physically initially prepared for that You’re, just gonna comb it and you’re good for nobody Even the hardest men and times of suffering, what, we do is we forget how. Hard, we really are? Suffering is a true test of life We are all great no, matter if If you, think you’re dumb and i think you’re fat you know After you are fat you’re now if you’ve been bullied or no matter if you just got back from iraq or afghanistan and You have no legs on your arms of ever man you all have greatness What would amazing look, like for you, what would amazing look, like if you were amazing if you know, what amazing looks, like then, why haven’t you gotten here yet i Want you to say the reason i’m not even amazing yet because i hit the snooze button that’s Why i’m not amazing right now the reason, why i’m not amazing right guys cuz. I couldn’t get up early enough cuz i told
myself i’m not an early person i Don’t get on twitter every blue moon i don’t get on my app every blue moon the reason, why Some of you will never be successful because you’re not immersed in it when you, wake up in the morning look at Your, goal your, goals won’t tell You, what time to get up are you hearing me your, goals won’t tell you Who you should be hanging out with i can’t tell you what your bones won’t tell you how Much sleep, do you need, you might not need to get up to 3 o’clock in the morning for your growth But your, goals are going to define what time you get up how. You live your life, how You, move when you say, yes when you say no? Think, like the person you intend to become i want your dream to be so clear so vivid right That when you, wake up in the morning all you got to do, is step in your dream the difference between people Who talk About it and people who do it it’s one simple word application They hear it and they don’t just hear they digest it and when they digest it boom they Do something with it if you are alive i know. You ain’t reached Your breasts yet right you got more you could do more you could see more you could be more i know that all your energy All your strength all your, skills all your, capabilities, like, you’re, not operating on a thousand percent i know There’s still, some things you can, do to, some limits that you could. Push, some buttons You, could push Some opportunities that you have an explore and the second thing i know is this i know that you’re not experiencing life, to its fullest Like, life itself is a process of becoming a part of man’s ongoing, historical drive to manifest his consciousness Outside of his mind in front of his eyes Greatness is when we overcome our own boundaries when, we surprised ourselves when mapped out when? We get to longview, when we get the, big picture that’s greatness, ask, not what the world needs Ask instead what makes you come, alive because what the world needs is more people, who have come, alive, what makes you come alive What gives you the goosebumps what gives you the chills what makes you, well up Somewhere deep inside you know what kind of person you were designed to be ask yourself how Would the person i’d like to be do the things i’m about to do Greatness is upon you it’s time for you to bring that thing out there is power and? Consistency there’s power and doing something over and over and over and over again There’s power in practice don’t rush the process Ya, feel, me some of you are trying to rush the 41, day it take 21. Years to be 21 years old don’t rush the process trust the process It’s a matter of life and death yes it’s a job you, don’t want but That job is going to propel you and position you for the next job it’s not just a class It’s the rest of your life are you hearing Me it’s not just working out it’s an extra year on your life it’s Not just eating right it’s another seven years on your life it’s a matter of life And death and so your life is in your hands your dream is Your future is in your hand Look, at your life, right now if you, want to keep on getting what. You get keep on doing, what you’re doing you’ve got to be willing to change your ways Your life is working if you, don’t like, what you have produced your director you, have the scar you, wrote this script You, produce this whatever it is if it’s a hit you produced it if it’s a flop You, produced it take ownership of it and decide to go back to the drawing, board and Rewrite the script that you are the scholar you have a power to do that on this day you can declare That i’m going to change as you look, back on your life You can, decide that i don’t like, what i produced here and i want higher ground i? Want to begin to experience more love i want to have more adventure in my life i want something that gives my life, a sense of meaning i believe ladies and gentlemen if we can accept the possibility of That this is the decade of consciousness? That’s what i believe that this is the decade of consciousness if you please a time, where we can? Begin to create in folks minds the idea the Possibility that we can, create a, more humane, society the possibility that, we can? Create, more love communication and understanding in relationships the possibility that, we can, create a, drug-free america The possibility that we can, create the kind of respect for diversity and difference in our multicultural society the possibility that we can Begin to develop the mindset to bring out the best in people to encourage them to achieve their greatness and support them in their dreams that if we can in this decade of consciousness To, begin to see an envision that happening, and that we all can play a role that We were born for such a timelessness that, we showed up for this that We survive one out of nine million sperms, and we’ve been chosen for this great work What an exciting time to be alive
