The Complacency Coma
The times we're in right now a lot of people are getting into what I call a complacency coma. A complacency coma where they're going through their daily life, they're doing what they do and they're just settling, and it's this, this thing that I teach inside of our mastermind where it's about the slippery slope. You know you you, in psychology, I don't know if you guys know this about me but I actually majored in psychology in college, other than baseball. Baseball is actually what I majored in and then at the end of it they were like you should major in psychology, it's like, love psychology, But it's psychology, there's two very big frames I guess you could call them contexts. One is this thing called the foot in the door technique and the other one's called the at least technique. Well, what a lot of people are doing inside their complacency coma right now is they do this, at least technique and this foot in the door technique for the door technique meaning. Society says, you know, this is how it is like okay well I guess I could deal with that. And then they say this is how it is and that, okay, and it's basically death by 1000 concessions, where you start to live this new normal, that you've just accepted a little bit accepted a little bit accepted a little bit until you wake up and go where the hell am I. I did not sign up for this inside my life. And what I want you to know is, you don't have to fall into that complacency coma that complacency coma makes standards go down. It makes the dreams and goals be like well okay maybe I can't make $100,000 a month but maybe I can make 80 Or maybe I can make 50 You know what 10 would be great and it's just down down down down down back to where you are now or maybe you're possibly even sliding back and what I would say is, the reason I'm making this training for you is that I want you to snap out of it if you're in it and realize you can still have the things that you want inside your life. Don't buy into other people's narratives don't buy into your current circumstances, as if it's your actual reality for the rest of your life. You never want you've got these dreams you've got these goals. I don't want you to have your dreams and goals, your dreams and future goals predicated on your current circumstances. And I know that can be tough, because when you look around, there's other people that have certain beliefs you have to do it this way and society's molding, you don't have to do that. This is your life, you get one life, my friend. You get one, and you've heard this a million times, but it's in the problem with that is it's so cliche that sometimes we don't realize it, we just hear it and we're numb to it, but I'm sorry my friend, you will die one day you will you get one life. And what I'm going to say is, live it, go after what you want because here's, let me give you the punchline here because I want to try I've tried to keep these audios short for you, you can pretty much have whatever you want. Maybe not in the time that you want it, but you can pretty much have whatever you want. So my friend, are you going to complacency coma or could you be doing more than you're doing right now. Do you need to get motivated, do you need to get inspired, do you need to get around some other people that would pull you out of that coma. Now look, if you are complacency Komodo make yourself wrong I've been there before myself. You just need to do something to shake you up a little bit, get you inspired but you want a new habit get you on a new routine, maybe get you a new strategy, and then you're off and running. Okay. It could be something as simple as buying some gym shoes that you start working out again, I don't know what it is for you, my friend, but let this be a wake up call, you got one life go live it.
"I don't have time
I don't have time is the biggest lie that business owners tell themselves. We don't I don't have a time. I'm just so busy. And the truth is you may be busy but the truth is also that you do have time. And while you may not have time to do everything you do have time to do everything that's important. So I suspect if you're somebody who has been saying yourself well I'm just too busy, I don't have enough time. David I feel overwhelmed. That's probably because you just haven't prioritized. You've prioritized, or you. You have just been subject to other people's agendas, you feel the need to stop whatever you're doing and go handle somebody else's agenda. And what is that right, what is it that that makes you feel that you have to control everybody else's agenda and respond to everybody else, and what they're doing. You don't have to do that and I know that as I say that your mind is probably disagree with me and saying no, you don't understand David I have to do it, I assure you, you don't have to do in fact have you ever considered that the more valuable somebody is, the less accessible they seem to be the more valuable somebody is, the less accessible they seem to be, and yet, somebody will tell me David understand I'm just so busy, I'm so overwhelmed and you're so accessible to everybody. You don't have to be that accessible. They can wait. You've got an agenda to you've got a life to that you are operating on, it's what I would say is number one, are you putting your agenda first. Are you putting in, you may this, I'm giving to you in a in a productivity context, but like what about your relationship. Have you been putting your relationship on the backburner and that things whittling away. Are you starting to have arguments over there and foals happening in that relationship that you just haven't been fixing and putting that making that a priority. What about your kids. What about your family. What about your own health. Dude, I don't have time to work out, that is such a lie. You and I both know it. The Five Minute Workout is better than the no minute workout. There's a great app called the seven minute workout go download that thing do seven minutes get seven minutes to put your health in good shape so that you live a longer life. Of course you do. Stop telling yourself the lie that you don't have time, you know, it's so interesting, I've heard this before right like David, I really want to join your programs but I just don't have time. Isn't that exactly why you would be joining. It's a lie that we tell ourselves. You think that, you know, Warren Buffett and these, you know the Jeff Bezos and these massively successful people do you think these people have more time than you. And so here's what I was saying, my friend. This is the last thing I want to get to you. Are you trying to manage time or are you trying to be more efficient and create more time, that's really what we're talking about here, we're talking about you. Learning to delegate learning to prioritize, learning to free up time inside your calendar, so that you can spend time on the things that are most important. So what's most important number one if I were coaching you right now I would say make sure you make time for you. Take care of your health. Take care of your mindset, make sure you're meditating, make sure you're eating right, make sure you're sleeping, seven to nine hours every single night no exceptions. The second thing take care of your family, then, then the third thing, take care of your business, and prioritize that even inside the business taking care of your business first, and then responding to all those things you do that my friend and all of a sudden you're gonna find that you have a lot of time.
