Didn't Want To, But Did It Anyway

"This morning when I got up to go to the gym, I really didn’t want to go. I didn’t feel like sweating. I didn’t feel like doing my cardio. I didn’t feel like lifting. I would honestly have rather done anything than go do those things, but you know what? I got up and I went and fucking did it."

Taking Control of the Test Days

"If you’ve heard me speak live, you know that I talk about taking control of the days you don’t feel like doing what you need to do. What we don’t talk about, is starting to love those days. I call them test days. The reason I call them test days is because they’re the days you’re testing yourself. You find out what you're really made of on these days."

How To Become Good at Conquering

"How do you become good at conquering those days? You have to start with doing them on the absolute hardest days. Those are your test days. We talk a lot about doing it anyway and doing the work and doing this and that and blah, blah, blah, but the real key that differentiates people from successful and not successful are these days that I'm talking about.  Learn how to get excited when that feeling creeps in of "I don’t want to do it."

Love the Test Days

"I deal with dozens, if not hundreds, of millionaires on a weekly basis, and I can tell you right now, every single one of those motherfuckers loves test days. They love being tested. They love looking themself in the mirror and challenging themselves. Recognize your test days. Recognize the way you learn to dominate your test days is by kicking ass every single time. You'll build confidence, you'll build self-esteem, and you'll build momentum. You’ll stop dreading those test days, and eventually, they’ll become something you live for. When those test days become something you look forward to—that’s when you become unstoppable."
