“Over and over again I see people out there selling classes, courses and coaching that will help you “live life on your terms.” Let me tell you something: you’re already living life on your terms.
That’s the problem. Your life is the perfect expression of your current terms. Before you try to be successful on your own terms, first you’ll want to improve your terms.”
Buckle up. This one might get a little rocky.
Over and over again I see people out there selling classes, courses and coaching that will help you “live life on your terms.”
Let me tell you something: you’re already living life on your terms. That’s the problem. Your life is the perfect expression of your current terms.
Here are some examples of most people’s terms:
“If I’m nice enough then people should do what I want.”
“If I get mad enough then people should do what I want.”
“Spend money on what makes me happy, now.”
“Other people should design their entire lives around my feelings.”
“People should accept me for who I am even though I don’t accept others for who they are.”
“I can’t achieve greatness without neglecting my primary relationships.”
“The best way to influence people who think differently than I do is to call them names and treat them like they’re evil.”
“I should get promoted because of my perceived talent, not because of my value to the organization.”
“Reading articles like these should make me feel good and if they don’t it’s productive to get mad at the writer.”
“Life owes me a great body, friends, job, bank account, house, spouse and ___________ without having to work smart or hard for it.”
These are terms that a lot of people have.
And they suck.
Please don’t hire a coach or buy a course to help you live life on your terms. I repeat: most of your current terms are the problem. The reality is that if your terms don’t include smarts, sweat and sacrifice then your life will fail no matter what your other terms are.
But if your terms include smarts, sweat and sacrifice then you can pretty much do anything you want and you’ll be successful.
So don’t do life on “your terms.”
Instead, upgrade your terms and then watch what happens.
