Get Results Indicative of Necessary Dominance.
What this means is creating a certain mindset and outlook on life that forces you to consistently take action, find the necessary education and work in a way that will let you be the winner in all situations.
Never settle. Never compete.
This is the approach you should take for every situation in your life.
Get out there and dominate the “competition”, your former self and all opportunities that you are interested in.
Only focus on and accept exactly what you want out of your life. It is YOUR life, after all. This means it’s yours for the taking and everything you have ever wanted is out there, up for grabs. Right outside of your comfort zone.
You know the old adage; the world is your oyster.
Well, it actually is, but you must realize that you are in the sea right now. Everything is widely available to you, but if you only ever stick to your own reef, you’ll never be able to find it.
You must get uncomfortable.
Sea metaphors aside, G.R.I.N.D.ing means asking yourself what you need to conquer the goals you’ve set to attain that special partner in life, to make the money you want, to be free to roam the world as you please.
G.R.I.N.D.ing will ensure that you get all you want. Not just a piece, not just a part of the whole, but the entire package.
There’s a fine line between:
- Doing something for the hell of it
- Trying something without the end goal in mind, and
- Setting clear and concise goals that you will achieve at all costs.
These three are massively different. The former focuses on being alright with whatever you can get. The middle is like a ship without a destination port. The latter unlocks anything you set your eyes on and claim for yourself.
When Bruce Lee said:
… he wasn’t just blowing smoke.
Take it from a man who knew what it took to reach every height and push past any self-imposed limiting beliefs.
Applying the G.R.I.N.D. Mentality With Action
G.R.I.N.D.ing will look different in different time periods in your life. You will likely need to hustle the hardest when starting a new venture, or forging a new path. This is because you have no prior knowledge in this area and there is so much for you to learn even to become semi-adequate in it. The vital step is getting behind the heavy rock you’ll need to move until solid momentum is gained.
It’s far easier to keep the rock rolling after it’s roaring down the hill. Getting it in motion is the hardest part.
Most people stop here. Good news for you!
When you get more success, more money and more freedom, you will likely not want to overwork yourself to the point that your health suffers anymore. It all depends on your personal preference, but in general as you climb up the ladder of success, your vision clarifies. You understand the bigger picture of where you’d like to take things.
Sometimes certain people who used to be important in your life become a bit more distant. This is because friendships are formed by shared discomfort and hardships. When these hardships change, it is at times harder to relate because the lifestyles are so diverse.
New people inevitably emerge and become more relevant in your life, and you can still keep in touch with distant old friends, if you’re fortunate to have the types that contribute value to you. I know I do.
When I moved across the world by myself, I shortly recognized all the people who truly mattered. These were the people who consistently kept in contact with me, and we stayed updated in each other’s lives. All other people seemed to fade into the background. You cannot get caught up on the people who are not important to your life, because trying to will just waste your time. Most people have an extensive network, yet keep a pretty small inner circle.
I’ve always had a close, small crew of friends, yet we are as close as blood brothers. I’d do anything for them, and vice versa. Not everyone gets this privilege and I’m thankful for it.
When you strive for your greatest successes in life, oftentimes you will need to distance yourself from familiar people and situations. This shift can be hard, but as long as you’re connecting with those who matter, it won’t be as rough.
As you meet other businesspeople and entrepreneurs, work on your craft daily and study new things in forms of books, podcasts, educational YouTube videos and courses, apply the G.R.I.N.D. mentality to them. This will filter out all the low quality information that you come across, make you question and vet your sources to aid you in getting the most success as quickly as possible.
Whatever you do, in business, life, romance, and friendship, remember to G.R.I.N.D.
It will let you have the most positive results, connect with the most helpful people and resources and will ensure that you will never again settle for another unwanted outcome.
