Certainty

June 06, 2017

Hey everybody, we’re finally back in Salt Lake, just landed, super grateful. And I was talking to Vanessa, she said, You know what? I really feel like I’ve just been in a fog all day, we should go on a hike. And you know, we’ve been playing the perfect game this whole time talking about it. And I said, Yeah, let’s go. I know this great place to go on a hike. So here we’ve driven up the east side mountains in Salt Lake, downtown way back there behind me. Beautiful, clear night, got the full moon peeking at us. We’re gonna go on a quick hike.

I had a quick message about certainty and what that looks like and how it can show up for you in your life. And I think one of the most important things about certainty, moving forward with certainty is your concentration of being in the moment. Okay, it’s easy to get distracted. You want to go to the next thing, especially if you’re talking to someone who is slow with their words, for me it has been a big struggle to concentrate in conversations. When I run out of patience, for that certainty when I walk into a conversation now I’m gonna listen all the way through.

The other thing about certainty, I want to share with you a quick story. So we were in Denver the other day, and Mitch was sitting at a hotel, and we’re like, hey, let’s go to the hot tub. Sounds great. And apparently the hot tub closed at 10. And I made up in my mind, and I was certain I was certain we were going swimming. And we show up to the hotel it’s like 11pm. And, you know, fair enough, right there, says on the sign closed at 10. I tried my little key fob, swiping it not working. And I just go back to the hotel and to the front desk. And Mitch and Morgan are like, I don’t know if it’s gonna work we’ve already asked. So I go to the front desk, lady, I just say, “ma’am. Hi, I’d like to go swimming.” And she said, “Well, the swimming pool is closed.” And I said, “will you open the door for me?” And she said, “Yes!” So in my mind, I was certain before even showing up before even driving there. I knew that this is what we’re going to do. I wanted to swim, brought my swimsuit. I didn’t care what time it was. Because at the end of the day, there’s a human on the other side of that opening, if you show up with certainty with the right attitude. And so it worked and we had a great time.

 Trying to always be an example of certainties moving forward with writing books, with supporting team members and helping new people achieve their entrepreneurial endeavors, we have to move forward to certainty. So I had another conversation with the team members that wasn’t certain. And I’d remind them in your mind, you can either have doubts, or you can have faith, which one, because they both can’t exist, you’re saying, on one hand, you know, you’re gonna go accomplish this. And on the other hand, you’re expressing doubt and concern. It’s one or the other guys, one or the other. And so I like certainty. So I guess we’re gonna go on a little hike, I know that somewhere in that dark abyss there’s a cave.

One other quick idea to gain certainty is clarity with what you’re trying to accomplish. And that is journaling. Again, we talked about it, I think on day, nine or day 10, you’re talking about journaling. And it’s just a really effective way to clear up the jumble of ideas and the free flow that goes on in your mind, you know, you set a certain amount of time. Put that aside, get clear on what you want. And then do not entertain any other options or alternatives. Once you gain that clarity and that certainty of what you want to do. You move forward with that. entertain any other ideas, have that positive mental attitude and keep smiling. Now, as we build on these days, we’re going to day 60 this whole process and I’m going to be sharing with you over the next coming weeks is the formula for manifesting the life you want. So stay tuned. Thank you for being here day 18 of certainty and quick reminder to take back your existence or die like a punk.
