CHANGE YOUR MIND AND BECOME SUCCESSFUL
The number one thing that’s gonna change your life, the only thing that will change your life, change your business, change your money, change your relationship, is you must raise your standard.
Your life can be too big to allow yourself to play too small.
The only thing that changes our life long term is when we raise our standards.
It means that all of us in life have things we want.
We don’t get what we want, we get what we have to have.
What you’re looking for and what you’re talking about and what you need is self-discipline.
Now, self-discipline as the very term implies comes from itself, it comes from you.
It comes from when you make a decision.
to be disciplined.
When you make a decision to be better, when you make a decision to do more and to be more.
Well, I think the one thing that discipline definitely does help you is it, it helps you get things done and
when you get things done when you actually do things you have more success.
Make some choices,with new choices you are gonna get new results.
With new results you’re gonna get transfomed.
When you are no longer willing to tolerate something, that’s when your life changes.
Develop the habits, you’ve got the brainpower, you’ve got the energy, just develop the habits of success.
We know that one of the things about high achievers is that they all have goals.
So literally without goals you are directionless, you will be used.
People without goals get used by other people who have them.
People who don’t have goals, work for people who do.
But you know about Michael Phelps, what allowed him to be able to push beyond that moment is his rituals.
Go study the guy.
Most people who swim have these unbelievable workouts.
He does and of the workout sessions a day.
All the other swimmers in the beginning thought he was insane.
You get overtrained you can’t do that it’s not phisically possible,
but he had a standard and rituals to back it up.
If it was easy everybody would be doing it.
There are always gonna be ups and downs but I think it’s really how you really get back on your horse and keep going forward.
and I think the biggest thing that I’ve always said, “Never Give Up” and I’ve never have
and nobody ever should they want something bad enough go get it.
they have to work for it.
Yeah, it’s not gonna be easy but if you want it bad enough, you’ll do whatever takes to get there.
If you look at great athletes for example,
It’s not that they were naturally talented but whether it’s Kobe or Michael Jordan or Federer.
It was the quality of their rituals.
If you think you can make a difference it requires commitment.
The pro goes to work and it doesn’t matter if you are sick, doesn’t matter if you have kids.
You are a pro and you go to work and that puts it in your head that this is what I do.
If you don’t do the work, steadily everyday like an athlete going to the gym and practicing.
If you don’t do the work, if you don’t act on the ideas, if you don’t integrate them, if you don’t show some self-discipline.
No idea will work unless you do the work.
Everyone in the world has a list of things they think they should do.
I should lose weight, I should workout, I should work harder, I should,I should,I should,I should.
And then you know what, what changes people is when your should becomes a must.
When suddenly you think you said should happen – has to happen.
That’s what we really need to change.
Unless you take some new action.
Unless you start thinking some new thoughts.
Unless you start having some new conversations.
Unless you have the guts to clean up some of the things that are not working.
And install some of the new rituals that will work,
Nothing will change!
The road to success is through commitment.
and through the strength to drive through that commitment when it gets hard.
And it is gonna hard and you’re gonna want to quit sometimes but it will be colored by who you are.
and more who you want to be…
You have only one life!!!
SO DON’T WASTE IT.
I was a big dreamer.
You know, and so.
My job was to clean these floors.
between Friday, and Sunday.
So,everytime I would go to the th floor was the CEO’s office.
so I would bust in like I was the CEO, I am dreaming like I am the CEO now.
and who would have ever thought.
I’ve been blessed and here I am.
I am the CEO of my own company.
Well I think that the number one thing is you have to have a very clear vision.
A very clear goal of where you want to go.
Because only then you will get there.
Uh, you can have the best airplane.
OR the best ship in the world, but if the captain doesn’t know where to go he will just drift around.
If the pilot does not know where to go he will just drift around with his plane.
So,it’s uh I think the key thing is that we know where we are going and
that your very passionate about that you see it always in front of you, the goal.
To thrive in whatever you do please understand your Terrain.
Know what your target is don’t guess it.
Be as clued up as the next man because that’s, that’s, that’s your petrol that’s your fuel to get you moving.
If you don’t know where your going, what your targets are, your never going to get there. *PERIOD*
The other thing that’s important is you got to shoot for the top because
to go and to really have big goals and think BIG because
then your going to get big, then your going to go and achieve big things.
that is the most important thing and, you don’t achieve big things by accident.
I have to tell each and every one of you that it doesn’t matter how
how old you are, how young you are, your age, you can achieve anything that you set your mind too….
and I always say if I can do it anyone can do it.
Ah,If you think that you’re gonna go and accomplish something really special……
and be the best in anything in the world.
and you think you can do it without working.
You make a big mistake.
Because no matter what I did, if it was in bodybuilding or in acting or if it is in the political arena.
It always took a lot of lot of work.
and you got to put out, and you got to you know, sometimes think about sacrifices…..
and if your are not willing to work hard forget about it.
I truly believe we are all equal as human beings,
and if we are obsessed with something,
and we truly pursue our passion with everything we have regardless of any, anything else if you are obsessed.
Work hard, put in the time you will succeed, and that is a philosophy that I carry, my coaches carry and
and to see Lebron James who is like a mega superstar over here, and a phenomenal, phenomenal athlete
share and that belief is inspiring right back to me, and shows that we are thinking correct.
You know this is , this is hard work, this is an obsession, nothing can beat hard work.
This here is the reality, do you mean that the competition is not the reality?
Listen, the work is behind the scene.
Competition is the easy part.
Behind the Scenes is where all the work is done.
Everything is done to get to that one race that you need to run.
I always question myself in the best of times, even when I was world number for many many weeks, and months in a row.
At certain times during the year I said “What can I improve?”, “What do I need to change?”
because if you don’t do anything or you just do the same thing over, and over again you stay the same.
and staying the same means going backwards, because the other guys, are working harder, and improving.
So, I always need to find ways to improve my game as well.
Beware of vision, dream and passion killers.
Family and friends, in most cases, sad to even say this.
Family and friends, in most cases, would be the first who try to talk you out, of something that you are passionate,
excited about, that you have a vision before.
Most of the people that have no dreams,
would wake up every day try to talk you out of your dreams.
They have no goals, they have nothing that they are ambitious about.
Create your own reality by choosing your future,
and not only is it important for you to know it’s possible for you to choose your future, but it’s necessary.
that you work on yourself, that you develop yourself.
It’s necessary, that you get the energy drainers out of your life.
People who don’t want anything.
The most powerful, motivational speeches that I have ever heard came from people who told me I couldn’t do something.
You know why ?
Because when they told me I couldn’t do it I was bound and determined to show them, that I could.
Tell me, I can’t do it.
I will prove you wrong.
I will show you (laughing) that you’re mistaken.
Because I believe,
and this is real important
would thwart you,
would stop you,
would slow you down,
would turn you around,
and cause you to move backwards if you let it.
But if you have the proper mindset.
“I can’t” would do nothing, but make you that more determined to get to your goal.
One problem, the violin because to do you what you do, you have got to be a world class violinist.
Because if you don’t, when you are moving around, being thrown around and still trying to play.
You end up doing what you did with missing loads of notes.
And there were time when it sounded to me like a bunch of rats being strangle.
Seriously, that bad but you’re not good enough, I don’t think, to get away with flying through the air,
and trying to play the violin at the same time.
I don’t think, what you are doing right now is enough to fill a theatre in Vegas.
That much movement made you not as great as you were, made you not as great you were!
Who’s got the right to stop you ?
I mean, maybe some of you guys got something you never finish, something you really want to do,
something you never said to somebody.
and you told NO.
even after you paid your dues.
Who’s got the right to tell you that?
It’s your right to listen to your gut and nobody is going to say no.
After you earn right to be be who you wanna be and do what you wanna to do.
People will discourage us.
You know the people that you have in your life.
No matter how good of a day you’re having,
they will bring you down.
or no matter how bad of a day you’re having,they will bring you even lower.
You know what I’m talking about ?
Think of the three biggest discourages in your life.
They are not your biggest discourages,
Dear candidate, thank you for your application to our ballet academy,
Unfortunately, you have not been accepted.
You lack the right feet, achilles tendons, turn out, torso lenght and bust.
You have the wrong body for ballet and at thirteen you are too old to be considered.
So you don’t think you can?
You don’t think you can do it?
No, you can.
If you haven’t done it, keep striving,
keep working, don’t let up.
Things don’t come easy.
You gotta find it,
whatever it is,
Don’t quit. Don’t quit. Don’t quit.
So, just because you fail, doesn’t mean you are a failure.
So, I just need you to do me a huge favor.
I just need you keep going, try to make that one different decision to not maybe for my last one is
don’t let the distractions distract you.
I know, real simple but don’t let the distraction distract you.
Failure is not an option, when you go into it,
I want you to go in everything you do, listen to me, as if failure is not an option, alright ?
It’s not a button, it’s not a label, it does not exist!
You can do it!
Don’t let nobody steal your dream, I used to ask myself “Can I do this?”
And something said within me, “You’re the one.”
“You’re the one.”
If you want to be great, not good, not also grand, not second, not third.
If you want to be great, your very best at what you do obsession is a necessity.
Once you have that magnificent obsession, once you questioned the impossible to keep.
Then when somebody like that, tells you ,”You can’t do something, you have chosen the wrong one.”
To tell something like that to.
I will show you, I will show you what I can do. I will show you, I will turn your “I can’t”,
“I will never”, “I won’t”, “It’s impossible”, I will turn it around and I will show you that I can do anything!
I am the only problem.
I will ever have.
I am the only solution!
I AM THE ONLY PROBLEM I WILL EVER HAVE AND I AM THE SOLUTION!
What I mean the positively and negatively, I mean you attract,
now…you know not just what you fear you attract, what you feel, you what you are,what you attract!
*Interviewer interjects* “What’s on your mind?” *Dhenzel replies* “What’s on your mind, yeah, yeah, yeah.”
It’s like the Law of Physics, I don’t know how anybody can disagree with that.
It’s.. it’s… ask any physicist and they’ll tell you that it’s true.
I become what I think about…
all day long…
and once you know…
that what you think about…
is what expands…
you start getting real careful about what you think about.
You don’t allow your thoughts to be on anything that you don’t want.
that you wouldn’t want to have manifest, or show up for you in your life.
You know… I believe in the Law of Attraction…
and I believe that um you can speak things to existence…
and I believe that… um…
Once you know where you”re going and you know what you want…
the universe has a way of stepping aside for you.
You have to understand!
You are a magnet!
It’s our intention… our intention is everything.
Nothing happens on this planet without it.
Not one single thing has ever been accomplished without intention!
Einstein’s most famous quote, he said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge…
…knowledge is limited…
…encircles the world.”
“Logic will get you from A to B but imagination will take you everywhere!”
I think my imagination is always kept me going, you know what I mean?
you know just imagine myself, collecting awards,
just imagine myself, you know what I mean, getting big pots,
imagine myself working with the greatest actors.
Everybody can imagine themselves, you know what I’m saying?
Yeah, you know what, actually yeah I can see myself…
you know… being an influencer in clothes, because I can make that happen.
You got to understand something about like attracts like.
If you see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand.
If you can see it here…
and you have the courage enough to speak it.
It will happen.
You are a magnet.
Whatever you are that’s what you draw to you!
If you negative; you’re gonna draw negativity.
You positive, you draw positive!
You’re a kind person more people are kind to you!
This is the Law of Attraction and you have to in… the struggle… you know…
when… when… things are going good, You visualise these good things happen.
You visualise a number of things happening… that’s easy!
What’s not easy to deal with is when things are going bad and you’re visualising the good stuff.
That’s what freezes people!
When you’re trying to figure out your life all the way to the END!
When you can’t figure it out, it FREEZES you from trying it!
Cause you go, “Oh, I can’t figure that out, oh I can’t go over there ’cause I don’t know how!”
YOU DON’T HAVE TO KNOW HOW!
You have to ask!
Don’t allow anybody else’s opinions.
Don’t allow what it says on the internet.
Don’t allow the research.
Don’t allow what anybody out there tells you is possible or not possible for you!
There are many ways to get the things that we want for ourselves in our lives!
it all begins with how we choose to think.
I visualise, I’m sitting here on the steering wheel visualising a brand new car, visualising good things.
In times of struggle and that… that when you can do that.
I think that really makes the Law of Attraction, well it really attracts to you more.
This is impossible.
You can’t be serious.
It’s gonna be impossible.
It’s impossible. It’s impossible
It’s necessary to know that everybody wont see it.
That everybody won’t join you.
That everybody won’t have the vision.
It’s necessary to know that,
that a lot of people like to complain but they don’t want to do anything about their situation.
That you are an uncommon breed.
You know, you have to know within yourself that I can do this.
Even if no one else sees it for me, I must see it for myself
If you want to be the best, at that.
If you wanna reach the pinnacle of that.
You must be, there is no way around it.
You have to be obsessed, with obtaining that.
Greatness, in any field.
Cannot be achieved without obsession.
People will tell you, obsession is a bad thing
It’s possible for you to live your dream.
It’s necessary that you associate with winners.
That you work your system, that you are relentless, that you never give up.
It’s you, you have to take personal responsibility to make it happen
See, sometimes we can’t say, I can do that,
but what we can say that “It’s possible!”
That I can have my dream.
Somewhere along the line, you changed, you stopped being you.
You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good.
And when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame.
Like a big shadow.
Until you start believing in yourself, you’re not gonna have a life.
In this lifetime, you don’t have to prove nothing to nobody,except yourself.
And after what you’ve gone through, if you haven’t done that by now.
It ain’t gonna never happen.
It’s past possible, meaning that, all you gotta do is start, because if it’s past possible, as soon as you start.
You know you gonna set records, you know you gonna take it to the next level,
you know what it’s going to be,that you are going to do which has been never been done before.
If you’re willing to do a little bit more than the next.
If you’re willing to stay up just a little longer.
Sacrifice just a little bit more.
The journey is not easy.
Before you start that journey, mentally you must fuel yourself with the right reasons.
The right fuel to sustain the entire journey.
We all have the ability.
To do anything.
To have it.
You can drive it.
You can whip it.
You can fly it.
You can have it.
Impossible, baby, is nothing.
You gotta believe in yourself, you gotta believe in your dream,
You gotta believe that one day its gonna be your moment.
One day you going own the moment.
Listen to me, impossible is just a big word.
Question the impossible..
The greatest achievements of mankind.
Were made by people who questioned impossible.
The Wright Brothers
Question, what people call, impossible
Success is not a straight line.
It’s Crooked as down in the valley as back up over mountain.
I bet you that you have failed more times than anyone in this room .
You know, don’t wait for the stars to might reach up and rearrange them the way you want.
Create your own constellation.
I’m a human being. There is no difference between my humaneness and your humaneness.
The only thing is if you’re trying to get there, you cannot stop believing in anyway.
No matter what anybody says, no matter what anybody tells you.
You have to know it beyond knowing.
Are you the best footballer in the world right now?
I think so YES. In my mind, I’m always the best.
I don’t care what the people thinking and what they say.
In my mind, not just this year but always, I’m always the best. I’m always going to say that.
Don’t allow anyone, friend, family, acquaintance,
teachers, whoever it is,
don’t allow anyone to tell you that what you are dreaming for yourself and your family is not possible.
It is possible.
Please feel me. Please hear this from my heart.
Anything you want is possible!
All you can do is plant your seed in the ground, water it and believe.
That is what allowed me to be in this position right now is that I wouldn’t stop believing.
I would not stop believing.
I would say believe in your direction and do it.
Spend less time talking about it and more time trying to like perfect it and put it out there.
Position yourself to succeed, so for Example if you’re doing something else
and you want to do this thing you love, you do it after hours.
You work to . You get home. You kiss the dog and you go to the town,
I mean you start building your equity, your brand, whatever you’re trying to accomplish.
If you don’t do it,
Nothing is possible. If you try to do it, at least you have the hope.
Most people don’t even try sadly. Ah-Ah, most people try and then stop or give up.
Very few people try and try and try or do and do and do and do and never give up….
and those are the people that ultimately succeed and win.
rd failure in a row?
Did you think I need to pack this in?
I don’t ever GIVE UP.
If you want this, if you want bling – bling, if you want to buy the Jets.
That’s how you get it.
I always believed that the bridge between reality and a dream is work.
No idea works unless you have the courage to do the work.
Ideation without execution is delusion because you can have the most brilliant idea in the world……
but you gotta bet on yourself.
You can’t think that like that one idea………
and the way that you think is supposed to happen is the only way that it can happen.
I challenge all of us to say “Stop finding reasons to find and make excuses….
that you know we affectionately under called it loser talk and I don’t know.”
You have got to just will it and focus on making it happen.
Focus on one thing,
one area, put all of your energy into watering one area.
If you spread the water across many many seeds, you don’t have as much water for seed.
So focus on one thing.
What I learned from Steve Jobs is if you believe enough then you will see it…….
because other people will believe in it, other people will create products.
So you need to foster the belief in what you are dreaming so that it becomes a reality.
We read a lot of books on “How to become successful?”
And then you find out,
They never put in the book the part.
When they stab someone in the back.
That their sucess in the business in which you want not working.
As you read this business manual.
Always forget, People tend to leave out the dark parts.
I don’t care if you are working at a McDonald’s.
I don’t care if you are Guardsmen.
I don’t care if you have a college education OR even a high school education.
Your greatness and your degrees gotta already placed inside you.
So when you get all the people telling you that you will never be enough and you will never amount enough.
Even then, you just keep grinding.
You keep grinding because if you stop,
They will say “Hey, I told you something.”
Their are a lot of people laughed
Lot of people try to talk us out of it.
Lot of people didn’t understand it.
Lot of people wouldn’t ready for it.
But I wanna remind you.
To continue to dream….
and dream big.
And the last is……………………
They didn’t call my name,told me “I was over.”
Go for your dreams.
Don’t live life with regrets.
I want you to remember this,….everytime you walk in the room with anybody, know that you are special.
Know that you mean somethings in the world.
I don’t care where you started at.
I don’t care what you told to be what you coudn’t be.
I believe in me.
Don’t care if nobody liked your status.
Don’t care if your family is turning back on you.
Negative people will keep coming in your life and tearing you down.
There is a bigger dream waiting for you just waiting.
For you to step into it, to step into it.
Your life is big.
Your life is huge.
And we spend so much time wanting to be in somebody else’s life.
When I was young I had a lot of people telling me “You have to adjust you have through the other ones.”
You have to be like the other one’s.
I was listening but I wasn’t always following.
I dragged it in I said “I was listening” but i did my own thing.
I kept doing my own thing and I believed in myself.
I kept going and it brought me where I am today.
Confidence and believing what you do.
I think that is the Gold target.
You have to be relentless.
You have to never let off the gas.
Never Stop.Never Quit.
Never allow anyone to talk you out.
The dream,the vision and the ideas that god has set you.
Doesn’t matter how many times you get knock down.
It’s about getting back up so if there any kid out their told by a parent or a coach or a teacher or somebody they look up too.
Somebody that’s suppose to push them and believe in them and they told “No”.
Don’t listen to them.
Believe in yourself.
Sometimes the outcome isn’t always what you desired it to be,
but the true failure in life is not trying at all.
I am the master of my fate.
Don’t get in line just because other people are.
