Nothing to Lose

This post is different than most of my training posts.

This post is going to show you why you might be getting in your own way and what you can do to fix it.

A lot of people approach life on eggshells.

They are passive and timid, and things happen to them.

These people are usually choosing to be victims.

Choosing to be a victim, doesn’t mean that you look for an abuser or get beaten up.

It just means that you don’t create your life or your circumstances.

You allow life to dictate the circumstances for you.

This is a huge mistake.

People who think like this end up at the mercy of others.

This brings me to a powerful question you need to start asking yourself.

What do I have to lose?

I want you to ask that question.

Then I want you to really think about it.

Think about it for a few minutes.

Then think about all those times that you were scared to try something and didn’t.

What did you have to lose by going for it?

Did you have anything to lose?

Most of the time the answer is no.

People usually come up with reasons (excuses) for why they can’t move forward and get results for themselves.

This is because excuses are easier than improving yourself.

If you’ve ever wanted to get better at something, you acknowledge that it takes work, and effort.

These are two things that a lot of people aren’t willing to give.

What do you have to lose by going for it?

Are you going to lose anything if you chase the pr in the gym?

What about if you ask out that cute girl you see?

The answer is no.

You’ve been trained to fear failure and chase approval your whole life.

Men and women.

For women, what’s stopping you from talking to that guy?

Is it societies training that it’s socially unacceptable for a woman to approach a man?

That’s bullshit, women can open guys too.

There is nothing wrong with a woman asking a man out.

If you think there is you’re delusional.

Women just like men have a right to go after what they want.

People are afraid to lose things that they don’t even have.

You don’t have that person’s approval.

That guy doesn’t care about what you’re doing.

All of these are made up figments of your imagination.

Knowing this should free you from the mental slavery.

Keep your mind on what you want.

You have nothing to lose by going for it.

When you go for it, you open your mind up to new possibilities.

You could actually get it.

You can achieve results you want.

The key is coming from the nothing to lose mindset.

If you have nothing to lose you can truly be free.

You can think about how you can achieve your goal.

Instead, of thinking about what’s in your way.

Those imaginary obstacles are what’s in your way.

You need to viciously and mercilessly slay that.

Slice it’s throat and get rid of it.

This website isn’t for the feint of heart.

I know that I have nothing to lose by posting content like this.

Some will like it, some won’t.

I’ve never begged anyone to read my site and I won’t.

I have a message to spread and share.

Whoever is behind me will get rewarded.

Whoever’s against me, will have fun eating their words and feeling stupid!

This is my website and I spread the message I want.

You’ve been taught since birth to think about what you might lose.

Think about what you can gain.

Go for it.

There’s a reason we like it when football coaches go for it on 4th down.

Or when the starting pitcher wants to throw another inning.

Always push for more.

When you have nothing to lose you have everything to gain.

People are stuck in this weak comfort zone that prevents them from ever accomplishing more.

The way out of this is to get in the arena and battle.

Your arena can be anywhere.

The car dealership, the gym, the office, or in my case the laptop.

I’m in the arena because I love the thrill.

I enjoy the thrill of producing content.

I can feel the excitement inside of me as I produce art.

Your art is something to be molded like clay.

It’s an extension of you.

An artist can’t play it safe.

Artists must take risks and play like there’s nothing to lose.

Because there is nothing to lose.

Someone criticizes your work?

So what.

Being a former athlete I have experience with naysayers.

Every athlete has heard another jealous athlete say they suck before.

Do I value their opinion more than my own?

Of course, my answer is no.

I decide to work on what I need to work on, and I move forward from there.

Take risks

People who take risks get rewarded more than those that don’t.

That girl you want to talk to has hooked up with uglier guys than you.

The reason it wasn’t you is because of your fear of rejection.

You didn’t have the balls to put it on the line and talk to her.

No guts no glory and fortune favors the bold.

Always be bold

There’s a reason people win and lose.

To win you have to play big.

You can’t play small and win big.

Every big game player plays big.

You have to go for it.

Go for the payoff and take chances.

“I would rather have others think less of me than I think of me.”

-Grant Cardone

To be a big player start acting big.

Every superstar acts like a superstar.

“You can’t play small and win big.”

-John Snow

If you have big goals you want to accomplish you have to accomplish them.

Playing it safe and waiting for things to happen will only weaken you.

You really have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
