When we don't have the energy

There are times when we don't feel like working, when we feel things never seem to change anyways. This is pretty connected to the not having the right mindset of course, but it might not seem like it is sometimes.

I've had conversations with people who over and over have told me, that they don't see a reason why to try so hard, they feel like life is designed to work against them anyways. I ask you: Do you think that having that mindset is going to help you in any way? Believe me, if you feel like you lost before you tried, then you already have.

That is a big lesson I learned many years ago, and I keep on repeating it every chance I find someone who is allowing his negativism to take over. Sometimes they don't admit they are being negative, or pessimists, they say "I just don't have the energy", and somehow justify it with that.

There has been nothing good that has been achieved with no effort. And the difference between those who have the energy and those who don't is just an attitude, it's not magical powers. As I've said before, along my journey I've worked 16,17 hour days; Do you think I had the energy?

Holding on to the long term vision of our plans gives you the energy. Yes we might be tired today, we might not want to keep on going, but what about tomorrow? What about a week from now? Does the goal not give us the extra boost week to keep on going, and if it doesn't, then is the goal you say you want really your goal, or just an idea.

Believe me when I tell you, if you don't know what you want out of life, you will never achieve much. It's really that simple, I knew from an early age I wanted to be independent, I wanted to be an Entrepreneur, and as you know I faced many challenges that would make anyone doubt, but I kept on going nonetheless.

Not having the energy was never a good excuse.
