I don’t believe in the word for
procrastination, like I don’t really believe in that word. I told the young lady in
Australia who told me she’s a procrastinator, I said look if I
told you to meet me here tomorrow at 5:00 a.m. and I’ma give you $3,000,000, where would you be? She said, I’d be right there at 4:59 ready to get that three million dollars. I said so there’s no such thing as procrastination. What it is, is
it’s not important to you, right. It’s not it’s not meaning for you, to you. It’s not,
it’s not something that’s urgent to you and when something is not urgent you put
it off. So yep you’re in school, yes you probably are getting grades, etc but if
it’s not meaningful to you, if it’s not important to you then you’re not going to
make it a priority. So what you have to do is find out how can you make it
meaningful? How can you make it purposeful? How can how can you make it stick and
when you can find that out I promise you you will get up early, you’ll get there
first and you’ll do whatever it takes to make that goal a reality. So for me, no
such thing as procrastination, it’s such thing as it’s not a priority to you. You said
that you’re gonna graduate this year you’re gonna finish college this year,
you said you were gonna run a marathon right? This is what you said, out of your mouth.
All I’m doing is, I’m saying, listen I’m not telling you what to do. I’m not telling you you should do this, you should do that, you should do this, I didn’t tell you all year what you should
do but what I did tell you is don’t talk about it, be about it. You should be tired, alright you should be
tired of talking about it and you should be at a place where you’re doing something about it alright. The
reason why you have not become successful, the reason why you are not
like a locomotive, the reason why you’re not having success in your life is
because every single day you got an excuse and I need you to do me a favour. I made
my last excuse yesterday, my last reason. I came up with my last reason yesterday
of why I can’t do what I’m supposed to do and so I need you to do me a huge
favor. All your excuses, all your good reasons,
everything, every everything that’s keeping you from doing what you’re
supposed to do, I need you to put it behind you and say yesterday was the
last day for that foolishness. Yesterday was the last day to say I don’t have
enough money to do this, I don’t have enough money to go to school, I don’t have enough
money to get a computer, I don’t have what it takes, I’m not smart enough right,
I don’t write well enough, I don’t sing well enough that’s why I didn’t do my CD, I
didn’t write my book because I’m not on that level. Listen to me – you gotta hear
what I’m saying, yesterday was the last day that I want to hear an excuse. It’s
over with. I was embarrassed, I said listen to me, no more defeats. No more
defeats man, no more. I was tired of feeling defeated.
I was tired of talking about I was gonna do it and didn’t do it and I hated the feeling of
when somebody asked me, yo E, where the book? I ain’t got it. I was tired of
getting beat, I was tired of defeat. I said I’m gonna get it done. Every time you set this big goal, you
never get it accomplished because you never break it up in manageable pieces.
This is it, I’m talking about procrastinators. You still have time. Don’t
quit, don’t give up, you still have time. You can do it. You can make it happen but
you can’t do it procrastinating, you can’t do it talking about it, alright? So I just
want to go back and recap because I wanna make sure you hear what I’m saying. I
dare you, I double dare you to do exactly what you said you were going to do when the year started because it’s not too late. I’m gonna say it again, I’m gonna hurt somebody.
i’ma hurt somebody. I don’t believe in the word procrastination, like I don’t
really believe in that word. She said I’ll be right there
4:59, ready to get that three million dollars and I said so then there’s no such
thing as procrastination. What it is, is it’s not important to you, right? It’s not,
it’s not meaningful for you, to you. Don’t really want to get up and get out of bed? Yah. I get up and get out of bed. I don’t really want to work out, I work
out. I really don’t want to hammer on a project, I
hammer on the project. As an overall rule I do not like procrastination. You need
to get things done but if you are going to rest that is one thing that you
should procrastinate on, that’s the one thing I want you to put off until
tomorrow. Now these could be signals that you need
some time off and those signals might be right. They could be correct, but don’t take today off. Don’t give in to the immediate
gratification that is whispering in your ear, shut that down. Do not listen to that
little voice instead go through the motions, lift the weights, sprint the hill,
work on the project, get out of bed. People are always wondering what the next step
in life is and I say life’s a little bit like a maze, you know? until you walk down one hallway and try to open the door you don’t know if it’s a dead end or not and
people are trying to sit back and that’s where the procrastination comes in and
look real far down the hallway and I’m like, just walk small and steady wins the race
what’s the fastest way to change your life? For me I think it’s understanding how to set up daily routines with alternating brain and body training and, killing procrastination
the little win, with your family when you feel like watching TV
sets you up for another win the next day a little win of getting up at 5 o’clock
and running your morning routine sets you up for a habit, of a 5 a.m. club morning routine, small daily improvements over time will lead you to stunning results, it comes down to this Elvis, I think you have to work hard
like, just so everybody knows, we haven’t gotten into this subject yet.
Working hard, is the cost of entry to anything. You know zero people that are successful that don’t
work their face off. You know zero people now, they may have money as mummy and daddy made money and gave it to them but people that actually built their own
success, you know zero people that have had success, that did not put in obnoxious amounts of work. What’s the most important key to success? I think it’s hunger,
it’s not getting satisfied. A hunger that doesn’t go, a hunger to learn, a hunger to grow, a hunger to serve, a hunger to give a hunger to create breakthroughs
most people are hungry until they make a certain amount of money and then they
get comfortable and there’s nothing wrong with that but it’s not about the money, it’s not about the business, it’s about your growth because every one of
us either grows or dies. People ask me all the time, what does it take to be happy? I say one word, progress. Progress equals happiness because achieving a goal feels good for how long? A week, a month, three months? And then there needs to be something else and the reason for something else is because you gotta grow
imagine a conversation with your future self in that, lets imagine that
the you of 20 years from now shows up at your doorstep, and that you
is stronger, smarter, wiser, wealthier, healthier, happier and that you shows up at your door
and it looks at your life and it looks you in the eye
if that future you is going to give you advice on what to stop, what to start what’s the first thing they would tell you to be? Or do? Take a step back right now and think about
who we all admire in the world right? They’re all people that punted the system, they’re people that practice singing since they were five
there are people that shot 10,000 basketballs every morning, it’s always that.
It’s always that. 99% of the people right now that are listening to this are playing in the middle
they’re playing in a game that was structured for them
they’re risk adverse, they fear, and most importantly, they fear what other people think. Look, I believe that we’re all born with
lots of goodness in us but life throws curveballs. Life, the ambition of being alive, helps us dream, and if you’ve been given a dream
don’t discount that because you’re not good enough yet. Develop yourself, weaponize yourself
teach yourself to be so good at something that is necessary to serve in the area of your dream that now you’re never even thinking about your comfort zones,
your comfort zone is irrelevant. What matters is, what are you trying to do with your life?
How are you trying to contribute? the one thing that discipline definitely does help you with, is it helps you get things done
and when you get things done, when you actually do things you have more success
if you have more success, and sometimes a big part of success is just not being lazy and just doing it, it’s like 90% of it is just showing up
get there and start working, like you’re not gonna feel perfect everyday
it’s pretty much the same with everybody that actually gets good at something.
There’s gotta be those days you push through
and they’re probably gonna be more numerous than the days you don’t and so the benefit of discipline in my eyes has always been that through discipline I get things
done. Those days when I’m tired or worn out or just basically sick of the grind,
what do I do on those days? I go anyways. I get it done even if I’m just going
through the motions, I go through the motions. So yep, you’re in school, yes you
probably are getting grades, etc but if it’s not meaningful to you, if it’s not
important to you then you’re not going to make it a priority. So what you have to
do is find out how can you make it meaningful? How can you make it
purposeful? How can you make it stick and when you can find that out, I promise
you you’ll get up early you’ll get there first and you’ll do
whatever it takes to make that goal a reality so for me no such thing as
procrastination it’s such a thing as, it’s not a priority to you.

    Today is the last day I procrastinate for the rest of my life. My future is what I will decide it to be. I know that one day I will look back and realize that today was the most important day of my life. I'm done with putting off these and I'm going to use my time on Earth wisely. To achieve my dreams, to help others, to explore the cosmos, to believe, never regret anything I do because I'll do it right the first time, and most important of all is to just have fun. Life is too short on Earth to waste it. I have to take full advantage of it and when it's all said and done have a smile on my face, and think to myself ," Wow! That was one hell of a life!". What happens next is a question I don't have an answer to. But I shouldn't worry about death, because I can't control the fate that awaits me. I truly believe there is an after-life and that I will arrive to a paradise, and if there's a book about my life I'll read it once and close it for eternity. I'll know that what I left behind on Earth of my maximum potential and interests was all that I good give. No regrets. No thoughts of "what if instead". I hope everyone has a great life and that you all give everything you all have to give. It is 9:38:30 on Sunday, December 2, 2018. To my future self, wherever you are, if you are on mars, if you are with aliens, if you are in different countries exploring the world, if you are in a different dimension or universe, if you are at a bar, if you have already died and are reading this from somewhere beyond my comprehension, just know that this day was the day the defined my/your future and this is the day that made you/me into the person we wished for so long. Blessings to all, a final thought is today is the day which I will remember for the rest of my life and the day that the words procrastination, fear, excuse, hard, etc. all died for me. My name is Julian Moises Hernandez and the world will know who I am.

    Procrastination is a gnawing vice and it’s the things that seem most trivial and annoying that you MUST overcome in order to stay on track and to even fucking see your goal. The only one stopping you is you. It’s one thing to dream a big picture but what does that mean if you do not execute? That project you’ve been putting off? Do it now. You have the body, the mind, the capability but what you need to shackle reigns on, is your self discipline. Do not fall into a downward spiral of comfort and complacency because just like that, you’ll be out of the game. Rise above and be the extraordinary 1 percent. Do not ever throw in your towel and instead, just do the damn thing. I believe in you but remember, procrastination has absolutely NO PLACE in your success. Now stop scrolling and get back to what needs to be done. It’s as simple as that.

    Wow it's so good. I like how you replayed certain parts over again in certain sections because it saves us from having to exiting the flow of concentration just to rewind the video. Listening to it creates a flow of feeling and thoughts because the blend of the different clips coming together is so smooth. Listened to it 2x already, not onto my 3rd time. I also send to other people to listen to it.
