00:04you can't push yourself forward
00:08if all you thinking about is the doubts
00:11and the negative things that people are
00:13saying
00:15because you're relying more on their
00:16ideas and their dreams of you instead of
00:19you relying on your own dreams and ideas
00:22of yourself
00:24why would you want to surround yourself
00:26with people that don't have ideas that
00:28are great
00:31why would you want to surround yourself
00:33because of a number
00:36you know a lot of people tend to wonder
00:38oh how many friends they have and how
00:40many people in their corner i have a
00:42million followers i have tens and
00:44thousands and thousands and thousands of
00:46people that support me how many of those
00:49people do you actually know
00:52do you realize the power
00:55that you have right now even the people
00:59that don't like you they are drawn to
01:01you
01:03they see you
01:05but they don't see your greatness
01:08they don't see what you truly have
01:10inside
01:12they are afraid of it
01:15they don't lift it up they don't
01:16encourage it because they're not happy
01:19[Music]
01:21so they want you to come on their side
01:24they want you to believe in their ideas
01:26of what you think of yourself
01:29they doubt you and you believe what they
01:31doubt
01:33instead of you waking up
01:36from your slumber
01:38instead of you waking up
01:40from this nightmare of despair
01:45and letting your opportunities come to
01:47life
01:49it's going to be a tough time ladies and
01:51gentlemen it's going to be rough
01:55it's gonna be some tough times and tough
01:57days ahead for you
02:00but that doesn't mean your ideas are
02:02gonna die that doesn't mean that you
02:04stop
02:05it doesn't mean you stop believing in
02:07yourself
02:10you just gotta keep on working
02:14when you got people looking at you from
02:16the left side and the right side from
02:18the front to the back and you in the
02:20middle
02:22just remembering
02:24everybody's watching
02:27just give them something to see
02:30let them see it
02:31are you watching me
02:33watch this
02:35or you want to stop me you can't stop
02:38this
02:39that's the mentality
02:42that you must have in yourself
02:45don't you dare give up now
02:47[Music]
02:48i know what that pain feels like
02:52i know how to absorb that pain
02:54and i know how to keep marching and i
02:56know how to keep moving and i know how
02:58to get productive in my life
03:02can't stop
03:03what you didn't create
03:05you can hate it
03:07but you can't dominate it
03:10because it belongs to me
03:13your ideas belongs to you
03:16so many people dream big dreams but they
03:19never take any action
03:21so listen to me carefully
03:24if you don't believe in yourself you've
03:26already lost the battle
03:28not believing in yourself is a losing
03:31battle because either you won't try at
03:34all or
03:35you will convince yourself that you
03:37can't do it and when you convince
03:39yourself that you can't do it
03:42your results are going to confirm what
03:44you believe
03:47you fall short of your goals
03:50when you predict that you're not going
03:52to hit them
03:54and sometimes you're too focused on
03:57probability you're asking yourself well
04:00what's the likelihood of this happening
04:02[Music]
04:03versus focusing on the possibility
04:07asking yourself how would my life change
04:10if i accomplish this
04:13ask yourself that question and don't
04:15wait on approval for anyone outside of
04:18you
04:20and don't feel bad
04:22because you feel like no one is cheering
04:25for you no you've got to decide that you
04:28are your biggest fan you've got to
04:30decide that you're going to finish what
04:32you started if you don't have one person
04:36supporting you
04:37if nobody acknowledges you acknowledge
04:40yourself if nobody supports you
04:44support yourself
04:47this is the thing if you keep showing up
04:50if you keep going hard if you stay
04:53consistent through your valley moments
04:55your results will turn those who ignored
04:58you into fans
05:01it's not that you don't want everything
05:03that comes with the path that leads to
05:04your true potential but you are too hung
05:06up on blaming the past
05:09and the present
05:10you are too hung up on blaming your mom
05:13for how she treated you when you were
05:14younger
05:16you were too hung up on blaming your
05:17teachers for how they spoke to you
05:21you're too hung up on this thing that
05:22happened to you years ago
05:25i'm not trying to discredit your pain
05:27but you gotta let that go
05:29and because of that
05:31you aren't able to appreciate the
05:33strength and power you have today
05:36you aren't able to step into that power
05:38because you are choosing to justify
05:41excuses every single time you open your
05:43 eyes
05:46it's time to take responsibility
05:48understand that you are in control of
05:51how you feel every day
05:53what you do every day
05:55how you act every day
05:57so don't get it twisted
05:59the excuse
06:01that these outside sources control how
06:03you feel what you do and how you act
06:06is just a justification
06:09that has been drilled into your head
06:11since you were younger
06:12break out of it
06:14understand that we have the power to
06:17change our lives
06:18stop putting the power in other people's
06:20hands by blaming them for your current
06:22situation
06:24take that back
06:28choose to shift the trajectory of your
06:30life so you can live up to your true
06:32potential and don't for one second think
06:35it's going to be easy
06:37if it's important to you
06:40you're going to find a way
06:42you won't have to look for a resource
06:44you will become resourceful it's not
06:46always about the accomplishment
06:48it's about the effort
06:50if we can just keep the effort going
06:53the excuse is irrelevant you got to be
06:55stronger than your excuses
06:58excuses
07:00don't get results
07:03we get one opportunity to come this way
07:05we get one shot we got one life to live
07:08[Music]
07:10life is too short
07:12to make excuses
07:17we get this strange feeling that we have
07:20never had to see in our lives
07:22that we are no longer
07:24this poor little stranger and afraid in
07:27a world it never made
07:31[Music]
07:34momentum is a big thing with human
07:36beings it's a big thing for me at least
07:42if i'm on a good momentum of healthy
07:44eating and exercise i love it
07:47i like waking up sore pushing further i
07:50like writing down my workouts what i've
07:52done
07:54and i like hitting that gym hard on a
07:56daily basis and i i build momentum
08:01and i find that when i do that with
08:02writing whether i do that with
08:04performing whether i do that with
08:06anything it just it just gets everything
08:09going it just creates energy
08:14being lazy robs you of energy like being
08:18sedentary being uninspired being bored
08:22it robs you of one of the most precious
08:25things you can have in this life
08:26enthusiasm
08:30one of the things that i tell people all
08:31the time because a lot of people have a
08:33hard time defining themselves they
08:36define themselves by failure because
08:38they failed but i'm like you're not your
08:40failures you're you okay your life is a
08:43series of lessons you've learned now if
08:44you just dwell on the failures like
08:47that's not that's not healthy it's not
08:49smart and it's not empowering what you
08:52got to do is look at those failures and
08:53go well now you know what not to do but
08:56you're not that you're you
08:58[Music]

09:33basement of my emotions the range was so
09:35wide i was laughing louder crying harder
09:38getting angry or showing more joy having
09:41more sadness
09:43all across the board all emotions were
09:45much more extreme than they were or
09:47could be in the word
09:50i said
09:51your life's more vital than you work
09:53but can my work challenge
09:55the vitality i'm feeling in my life

10:12so i'm going to stop doing what i've
10:13been doing

10:16i stopped well if the first six months
10:19of not doing rom-coms i wasn't doing
10:22anything finally nothing came in and for
10:2414 more months nothing came in
10:27i considered other careers
10:30didn't know if it'd ever work again but
10:32after 20 months of being gone unbranding
10:34as i now call it being out of sight not
10:37being in your theater or your living
10:39room in a rom-com not seeing me
10:40shirtless on the beach
10:42[Music]
10:43i became a new good idea i don't know i
10:46haven't seen him where has he been i was
10:48kind of refound
10:50so
10:51i i i had to do that
10:53for myself
10:55i loved doing the rom-coms but i was
10:56getting the scripts and i felt like i
10:58could do the same script tomorrow
10:59morning and i was like that's fine but i
11:01want something that's going to make me
11:02sweat in my boots i want some work
11:04that's going to challenge me and make me
11:05go i'm scared of this role for all the
11:07right reasons and i can't wait to go
11:10attack it and see what i can see how i
11:11come up the other side why seek the role
11:15that's hard
11:16because it cost me something
11:18because it cost
11:20it's not really a risk unless you lose
11:21the fight
11:22i feel more alive in them i have an
11:25experience in the making of them i'm
11:28nervous every day i come to work
11:30i feel like when i nail a day and i
11:33knock it i know i did i feel like yes
11:37i i have a measure at the end of the day
11:39like you set out to do something you
11:41prepared for it you had intention and
11:43you did it
11:44[Applause]
11:50you know there's lots of different ways
11:51to interpret the world and you can maybe
11:53even make a case that there's an endless
11:55number of ways to interpret the world
11:57and the problem with that is that
11:59kind of disorients you in terms of what
12:00you should be doing
12:03just because there's a very large number
12:05of ways to interpret the world doesn't
12:06mean there's a very large number of
12:07productive meaningful and sustainable
12:10ways to interpret the world
12:12the thing that's so interesting about
12:14the day the day is like a page in a book
12:18i had one client who was spending about
12:2045 minutes a night
12:22fighting with his young son about when
12:24to go to bed
12:26and so you know they weren't having a
12:27pleasant time of it because it was just
12:28a constant battle and that's common like
12:30it's very common for parents of young
12:32children to be locked in a battle that
12:33occurs day after day sometimes it's
12:35around eating sometimes it's toilet
12:36training sometimes general behavioral
12:38issues sometimes it's bedtime it's like
12:41okay
12:4240 minutes a day
12:43so that's 280 minutes a week so that's
12:45like say five hours it's 20 hours a
12:48month it's 240 hours in a year at six
12:51work weeks that's a month and a half
12:52you're spending a month and a half of
12:54work weeks doing nothing but fighting
12:55with your son
12:57don't fool yourself anything that's
12:59every day
13:01is a significant percentage of your life
13:03your weight let's say 16 hours five of
13:06those hours are basically maintenance so
13:08you got about 11. and then
13:10seven of those are work so now you're
13:12down to four so if you're spending 15
13:14minutes a day doing something painful
13:16and stupid and you do it every day it's
13:18like 10 of your productive life
13:21because people think backwards they
13:23think well i have a vacation coming up
13:25and that's really important it's like no
13:26it's not you're only going to do it once
13:28it's not that important
13:30how you treat each other
13:32at lunchtime if you eat together every
13:34day that's your life
13:36fix that get it get it so that the
13:38food's good get it so that you're happy
13:40with the people that are sitting there
13:42fix that it's like poof ten percent of
13:44your life is
13:46fixed the purpose is to align ourselves
13:49to really make a change so you can
13:51either be the conversation about making
13:53change you can be actual a part of the
13:55action to do it i want to be a part of
13:57the action
13:59i don't want to be you or beat you
14:01i want to take this energy and apply it
14:04to myself
14:06that's the purpose of seeing
14:09so i come here and i look at how you
14:11maneuver i look at your setup i not only
14:13bow down and congratulate you i leave
14:15and i say yo ma'am i'm inspired dude

14:20gonna come you're gonna see my you
14:21remember i said i was inspired but
14:23you're gonna see what i let it grow into
14:25that's the proper way
14:28to get encouraged and motivated
14:32look at your circle
14:33right
14:34when you can merge yourself with good
14:36people
14:37and follow the paths that you see that
14:40these good successful people
14:42have taken
14:44you then become a part of a world and
14:46group that nobody expected you to be in
14:50so everything else from the outside that
14:52comes in
14:53you're you're you're throwing
14:56at a at a bubble that can't be popped
14:59it's a force field around me
15:01there's a force field around me because
15:03what matters
15:04what really matters
15:06loves me wholeheartedly and when you
15:08have that and you understand that
15:12you're unbreakable
15:14so if you don't add to that force field
15:16if you don't make my force feel stronger
15:19you don't you don't
15:20you don't get time for me

15:50are doing has nothing to do with me
15:52i should always be a step ahead because
15:55i'm thinking differently because i'm
15:57thinking about myself making myself

16:02others better

16:58other letters in the alphabet

17:32bird has
17:33you see the bird doesn't put its trust
17:35in the branch
17:36it puts its trust in its own ways so
17:39when the branch breaks it can still fly
17:42again you can weather any storm you can
17:44withstand anything the world throws at
17:47you
17:48remember that the safest path brings the
17:51least reward

19:03hard if you give your full effort if you
19:05leave nothing on the table then
19:08greatness and success will come
19:14you'll be faced with difficult
19:16situations there'll be times that you
19:18don't believe in your ability to
19:19persevere
19:20there'll be times you feel incapable of
19:22rising to meet the challenges that face
19:24you you'll be tempted to turn your back
19:26and run
19:28but running is never the best option
19:30when you're in the middle of a struggle
19:32the only way out is through
19:37rather than running away from obstacles
19:39or trying to figure out some kind of way
19:41around them go right through them
19:43brace yourself
19:45steady your nerves
19:46put your head down and tackle whatever
19:48you face head on
19:51the storm may jar you a bit but i
19:53promise that you won't buckle and you
19:55won't break
19:56[Music]
19:59believe in your ability to weather the
20:01storm
20:02when you come out on the other side
20:04you'll be better for showing your
20:05strength
20:06the fears you face along the way they'll
20:08make you better
20:10our biggest fears always carry with them
20:12the greatest opportunity for personal
20:14growth
20:15our fears and how we face them brings
20:17out the best in us
20:19if something doesn't scare us if
20:21something doesn't challenge us it
20:23doesn't change us
20:24[Music]
20:27in life we have two choices we either
20:30step forward expose ourselves to risk
20:33and evolve or we play it safe and we
20:35step backwards into the shadows
20:39[Music]
20:43your dreams aren't going to come true on
20:45their own so it's time to get to work
20:47it's not going to be easy
20:49great things never get dropped in your
20:51lap and they never start from comfort
20:53zones
20:54if you want to be something you've never
20:56been you need to do something you've
20:58never done
20:59scary right
21:00wrong you know what's really scary being
21:03trapped in a perpetual cycle of
21:05unhappiness
21:06looking at yourself in the mirror each
21:08day and not liking the reflection you
21:10see staring back at you
21:13don't live your life like that
21:15at any time you can change your
21:17circumstances and you can change your
21:19life
21:19you have the power to do anything you
21:22want to do you just need to be willing
21:24to do things differently than you've
21:25done before
21:26you need to be willing to take risks you
21:29need to be daring if you're willing to
21:31step out of your safe zone if you're
21:33willing to stand at the edge of the
21:34cliff and jump
21:36if you're willing to do what you've
21:37never done you'll give yourself the
21:40power to become what you've never been
21:44will it be easy
21:45probably not but if you want to change
21:48your life you'll need to do what's right
21:50not what's easy
21:51too many people choose the easy road
21:53even when they know it's not the right
21:55road
21:57take the path less traveled
21:59real greatness isn't determined by some
22:01birthright or fate real greatness is
22:04determined by what you do with the hand
22:06that you're dealt
22:09[Music]
22:13the true secret of success is to accept
22:15the truth
22:16that the only path is the path of hard
22:19work and productivity you'll get where
22:21you want to go and achieve your goals if
22:23you follow four simple rules show up
22:27work hard
22:28don't quit and ask some questions along
22:31the way
22:32do you want to coast through life
22:34without fulfilling the potential that
22:36lives within you
22:37do you really want to wake up one day
22:39and realize that all of the dreams you
22:41have had have passed you by
22:43each one of us has dreams and we have
22:46passions we have things that we want to
22:48accomplish
22:50you're the only person who needs to be
22:52okay with how you live your life
22:54you could be hated by everyone and if
22:56you're okay with your actions and
22:58behavior you'll be content at the same
23:00time you could be loved and adored by
23:02every damn person on the planet but if
23:04you're not okay with how you've lived
23:06your life you'll go to bed with
23:08emptiness
23:09at the end of the day if you and you
23:11alone can look yourself in the mirror
23:13and be content with the choices you've
23:14made then that's all that matters
23:17believe in everything that you are and
23:19understand that within you there's
23:21something greater than any obstacle
23:23you'll ever face
23:24have faith in your abilities work hard
23:27never give up and there's nothing you
23:28can't accomplish
23:29[Music]
23:33so the key is to just do you
23:37with the right amount of confidence
23:38anything is possible
23:42no matter what you set out to do your
23:44first words should always be
23:46i believe in me
23:47[Music]
23:49the most important person to believe in
23:51is always yourself
23:52[Music]
23:56so you know one of your biggest problems
23:58is that you keep thinking that there is
24:00another you
24:02and for me i started to accomplish more
24:04than i ever have in my life when i
24:06realized that there's nobody like me
24:09that there's nobody that can do what i
24:11can do you have to come to the resolve
24:13today now
24:16that you don't need anyone's permission
24:20to make your dream a reality
24:23it may not always go the way you want
24:25but at the end of the day you have to
24:27understand that there's a reason
24:29for you
24:30and there's a reason why things happen
24:33once those things have been figured out
24:35now you're going to move on to purpose
24:38purpose
24:39has already been written
24:41it has a bottom line to it there is no
24:45was this supposed to happen there was no
24:47coincidence attached to it it was meant
24:50to be it is gonna happen no matter you
24:53think when i think about how any of us
24:55feel in this world
24:56purpose has already been
25:02see we're not supposed to tuck our
25:04dreams in on the pillow when we get up
25:05in the morning we're not supposed to
25:07leave him at home
25:09and go and fulfill somebody else's dream
25:11we're not supposed to do that that's not
25:12what we're wired to do that's not who we
25:15are your human spirit doesn't care about
25:17the economy the human spirit doesn't
25:19care that my son's father went to prison
25:21my the human spirit doesn't care what's
25:23happened to your family the human spirit
25:25doesn't care about the past you may have
25:27been molested or your family may have
25:29been broke or or you may have been
25:31betrayed or you may have a divorce your
25:33human spirit doesn't care about any of
25:35that your human spirit simply says
25:37what's our command for tomorrow
25:41every room you walk into you show up and
25:43you show out and you leave it all on the
25:46table remember your passions when you
25:48don't see a light at the end of your
25:50tunnel you got to remember the light
25:52that is burning inside of you that
25:54nobody is able to put out there is not a
25:57person on this planet that can stop
26:01[Music]
26:09i know there are a lot of people out
26:10there that always seem that they want to
26:12go back or saying that they have to get
26:14back to something
26:15the goal is is to move forward don't
26:18ever get yourself in a position where
26:20you feel you have to always go back or
26:22saying it you have to get back to doing
26:23what you used to do or getting back to
26:25what you had before or whatever
26:28the goal is to move forward the best
26:30thing you can do is try your very best
26:33not to fall off track
26:35there are three types of people in this
26:36world there are people who watch things
26:38happen
26:40there are people who wonder what
26:41happened
26:43and there are people who make things
26:45happen you got to determine
26:47which person you are you can make a wish
26:50or you can make it happen you must first
26:52believe that you can
26:54that you will that you must when you are
26:57no longer willing to tolerate being in
27:00the room of failure then that's when
27:02you're going to break free
27:04see either you don't want to be as great
27:05as you really are and you're trying to
27:07dim your life so that others won't feel
27:09insecure
27:10about themselves in your presence
27:13[Music]
27:14and so you keep playing at 79 watts
27:17when you know you're supposed to shine
27:18at 159 watts
27:21and you keep checking the temperature of
27:22the room to see what the room can handle
27:25versus just giving the room you and
27:26letting them that if your lights too
27:27bright then let them put on some shades
27:30can you give yourself permission to live
27:32in the duality of your imperfections and
27:34your smallness and what you're learning
27:35and what you still have to learn and
27:37your greatness and your brilliance and
27:39your light can you allow them to coexist
27:41and then serve them up to the world
27:43to love you to see you to inhale you
27:47to judge you
27:48to leave you
27:50to love you
27:52some of us are just as afraid of being
27:54loved as we are to be left
27:55[Music]
28:00get up
28:01work hard put some effort into what you
28:04want out of life because all you have is
28:06you all you have is what you have inside
28:09don't wait for somebody to tell you what
28:11to do you know what you need to do get
28:13out there and get it done
28:15because that's ultimately what it's
28:16going to take you have to have the
28:18courage the will and everything you have
28:20inside to get to the level and beyond
28:22the level you want to be
28:26there's enough fire inside of you
28:29after everything you have been through
28:32you've got to be able to see your value
28:36others
28:37have failed others
28:39have gone others
28:41have missed their moment
28:44you must accept this truth
28:47that you were born
28:49for such a time as this
28:52and that at this very moment
28:54all you have
28:56is all you need
29:00between reason and purpose there is you
29:04you have to be willing to understand
29:06that you have to work day in and day out
29:08and be the best human being the best
29:10person you can be and through it all the
29:13good and the bad you have to stand
29:15strong you have to understand there is a
29:17significant balance to all of us as long
29:20as we are in this world but you got to
29:22do the very best you can to get through
29:24it and be strong be productive and be as
29:27successful as you can possibly be
29:30[Music]
29:31your greatest fear is not that you will
29:33fall your greatest fears that you will
29:34live a full life and never fly
29:37that you never leaped you're not afraid
29:39of dying you're afraid of dying before
29:41the world sees who you really are
29:43before they really get your fingerprint
29:45before they really feel your breath
29:47before they really feel you that's what
29:49you don't want to happen you don't want
29:51to leave this place without us knowing
29:52you were here
29:55how did you dream before you got hurt i
29:57want you to start thinking about all the
29:59memories that you wanted to build the
30:01stories that you wanted to tell but for
30:03many of you defeat
30:05has traumatized you and it has left an
30:08image in your head and this is why you
30:10won't go after it i want you to erase
30:14the face
30:15of the feet
30:16and embrace the process
30:20none of us are going to be here for
30:21longer sooner or later you got to leave
30:23this planet
30:25but make the best
30:26of the life that you have on this day
30:28and the day after
30:30so if tomorrow comes for you tomorrow
30:32don't come for me
30:34let's get out there and make the best of
30:36it
30:37because tomorrow
30:38is another day and if you're a part of
30:40that day it means you got work to do
30:45there is no one like you in all of the
30:47earth there is no one that can do
30:49what you can do you are the only option
30:53you are the only play
30:55nobody else is going to be able to do
30:57this
31:10and so we're all waiting for perfect
31:11it's an illusion that will never come to
31:13you and it's an excuse to never show up
31:14and play
31:18your story is not meant to be your
31:20fortress your story's meant to be your
31:22fuel
31:25get out there
31:27work
31:28no matter where you are no matter what
31:30you do no matter what's going on in your
31:32life
31:33you still have a chance
31:36make it count for something
31:39get it done and conduct your business
31:44i hate
31:47plan b
31:50everything i ever did
31:52the thing that i heard out of people's
31:54mouth was that's impossible
31:57that can't be done
31:59or no
32:03we have so many
32:05doubters with the no sayers
32:09we have so many of those people that say
32:10no and you can't do it that's impossible
32:14but when you start doubting yourself
32:18that's very dangerous
32:20because now what you're basically saying
32:22is is that if my plan
32:25doesn't work
32:28i have a fallback plan i have a plan b
32:31[Music]
32:33you're taking away now that thought and
32:36that energy from plan a
32:38so whenever someone said to me
32:41it can't be done i heard it can be done
32:45when they said no i heard yes
32:49and when they said it's impossible i
32:50heard it is possible
32:53because i am a strong believer
32:57i am telling you i've never ever
33:00had a plan b
33:03i made a full commitment that i'm going
33:04to go and be a bodybuilding champion i
33:06made a full commitment that i'm going to
33:08be in america i made a full commitment
33:10that i'm gonna get in the show business
33:12and i'm going to be a leading man no
33:14matter what it takes i will do the work
33:16and it's very important
33:19to understand that we function better
33:23if there is no
33:24safety net
33:26because plan b becomes a safety net it
33:28says that if i fail
33:31then i fall and i get picked up and i
33:34have something else there that was that
33:36will protect me what is if i fail then i
33:39don't have anything else
33:41well let me tell you something don't be
33:43afraid of failing
33:45because there's nothing wrong with
33:47failing
33:48so people always ask me
33:51when they saw me in the gym in the
33:52pumping iron days
33:54they said why is it that you're working
33:55out so hard
33:57five hours a day six hours a day and you
34:00have always a smile on your face
34:02why is that
34:04and i told people all the time i said
34:05because to me
34:07i'm shooting for gold
34:09so every rep that i do gets me closer to
34:12accomplishing that goal to make this
34:14core
34:15this vision turn into reality
34:18michael jordan said in one of his
34:21interviews
34:22when they said you are unbelievable
34:24you're the greatest basketball player of
34:25all times and he says well you just
34:27mentioned the successes
34:30but it says for me to become the
34:31greatest basketball player
34:33i missed
34:359 000 shots
34:38when i was playing basketball at the nba
34:40games
34:41does it make him a failure no
34:43he's one of the greatest basketball
34:45players of all times but he
34:47failed
34:48nine thousand times do you get it
34:51[Music]
34:53they all fail
34:56it's okay
34:58what is not the case
35:00that when you fail you stay down
35:04it's all about the hard work that you
35:05put in
