So you thought it was the end of the story. (laughs) So you thought just because the student was willing to be obedient to the guru and not only wake up but meet him at the beach early in the morning. You thought that was enough. [knocking] Ah I got it. So you thought he was willing to walk out to the deep of the ocean that that was enough you because the guru placed his head under the water, pulled it out and taught him that the secret to success is wanting it as bad as you wanna breathe. So you thought that was the end of the story. You thought that one single event that one single moment was enough for him to stand amongst the greats to make his dream become reality. Well you thought wrong. In fact, it’s far from over. That was the easy part.
NOW – Now it’s time to redefine the grind. You thought it was over? Well it’s just getting started. See, this is the part. This is the part where life demands you make a life long commitment, this is the part where life demands that you make a vow come hail or high water, that you’re willing to pay the price the full fare where you earn your spot with effort, with sweat, with blood, with tears. And so you say, you want it as bad as you wanna breathe. Then it’s show time! It’s examination time. It’s time to get tested, to test your will, your endurance, it’s time to test your art, to test your limits. This is the art where you re-invent yourself.
Sleep. I don’t sleep. You thought that was it. It goes deeper than going without sleep because you might miss the opportunity to succeed. No, no, no it’s about no days off – no weekends, no holidays, no birthdays. Listen to me! No days off! No half days! No holidays! No snow day! It’s about gaining the competitive edge. It’s about separation. It’s about separating yourself from the pack, the competition. It’s about being a little faster, a little stronger.
Listen to me. A little faster than you were last year, last month, last week. In fact, you gotta be a little faster today than you were yesterday. And you can’t afford on the road to success, you can’t afford to make excuses. No excuses when you feel pain. And trust me, you will feel it. You gotta go deep deep down, beyond, beyond exhaustion, beyond (a workout) and when it’s harder than you imagined it would be, when it takes longer than you thought it would take and when the load is heavy than you thought you could bare and all you wanna do is give up and all you wanna do is give in, when you feel like you’ve given all you got, you gotta take one more step, you gotta run one more lap.
You gotta throw one more punch and disregard how much more does it take. You gotta fight back. You gotta fight a little harder. You gotta defeat disappointment, annihilate weakness and punish the competition. It’s about pushing yourself beyond the limits. It’s about perfecting the you, not just doing more, not just being better but finding your best. Listen to me. It’s more than you want it so bad than you wanna breathe that’s not enough, you gotta be willing to face every fear, climb every mountain, defy every odd, on-slot every obstacle, one step at a time, one day at a time, until you – only you are left standing – there’s no one else and there’s nothing in your way. Until you reach the top.
