“The reason I'm passionate about a lot of these things is because they’re the thing I needed growing up. I was that kid who was playing video games well for 16 hours a day. I didn't have a big friend group. I isolated myself in my room for days at a time. I wasn't eating how I should have been eating. And I saw that take a toll on my physical health and my mental health, and I think after a while it slips slowly.
If you can build up the success mindset by racking up all these small victories a day, what does that do? It builds momentum so that the next thing you set your mind to, you’re like ‘I'm going to do this, there's nothing that's going to stop me.’ But then the caveat is, even if you get stopped and you don't actually achieve what you wanted to achieve, you can flip it, right? You can say, well, I learned so much from this and I'm going to be better at my next goal.
It’s looking at things in a positive light: flipping around that positive and negative by changing the vantage point; but then also racking up small daily wins. Everything I do is going to amount to something bigger, and I can keep this momentum rolling. And then even if I have a failure, I'm not going to let it destroy me. I'm just going to learn from it and move on.”
