I guess this question is so broad but for some of you warriors, it can be easy. We all want the same basic things really. A good life, love, health, family, happiness, a career, a great place to live, and all that. Once you attain those goals, then what? Are you satisfied or do you crave more? Money can buy you some things but it won’t lead to true happiness. Warrior said that the richest people in the world are the most unhappy. Why is that when they probably have everything they want, right?
Wrong. That’s just stuff. We need to feel good about ourselves first and then all the wants will come afterwards. However you go for what you want, FEEL good about it first. Take those actions the way that works for you, not how someone else dictates. Be true to YOU! Think about how Warrior approached his character in the WWE. If you aren’t familiar, he had detours before he got there but wanted to succeed the way that worked for him despite naysayers.
There is no right or wrong way to achieve what you want. The way to go is entirely up to your vision of attaining your goals. Always will there be those who question the whys of your path but with deep conviction as warriors, we stay on it. Why do we not cave? Because we are warriors, that’s why.
My choices get questioned often when not fully embracing the “business side” of being a spiritual coach or entrepreneur. I found this woman online who promised me an extra $10,000 a month and hundreds of clients if I’d work with her and do it her way. Realistically, she could not guarantee those numbers at all and seemed shocked that I turned her down. After a few lengthy emails, I realized what a fraud she was and so relieved not to be duped. The money sounds great and could help my family but that isn’t how I want to influence people. Getting paid for a service or product– yes, but it isn’t the amount of money that appeals to me.
I will be a coach the best way to others in how to get my messages out there. Then, things happen. This is similar to Warrior not wanting a belt like I’ve said before. Many could not understand that either. Our way doesn’t have to be accepted or liked, just respected. Warrior wanted his character to find success in other ways just like he did later in life. He could’ve stayed in the business of wrestling and had tons more money or recognition but he didn’t.
We follow our passions and pursue them from a place of feeling first. Most of us get this wrong. We think that once we get everything we want, then we’ll truly be happy. No, warriors it’s the opposite. If you feel good with positivity, confidence, and trusting yourself, then those goals become a reality. You will achieve your dreams if you change your mindset to this new way of thinking.
We are trained to be better, to do more, get ahead, and compete in society. The truth is that we need to be grateful for what we do have and sit with it for a while. You can plan like I’ve mentioned before but sometimes becoming reflective is a must. Our hearts and minds need to slow down and be present in each moment. We are always in a rush, crossing off those “to-do” lists, and crushing goals is great. It is also o.k. to do nothing for a bit. I had personal and professional ideas that I did accomplish but again, then what?
I am learning to not always go, go, go and appreciate all the little things first. We have all done things in life that get overlooked so the question remains of what do YOU want warriors? I for one know what I want, I already have so then anything extra that comes is a bonus.
Whatever your answer is to that question warriors– really think about it. What you want is already inside you like Warrior himself always said. Go for it but honor yourself by feeling good first. The stuff doesn’t matter as much as the FEELING behind it does. The passions of the heart are worth more than any dollar amount always. 💙👏🏻🙏🏻
P.S. The photo of Warrior above was at the end of The Ultimate Collection DVD where he says how he “has lived up to the man named Warrior.”
P.P.S. For anyone stuck on this watch “Live Up to Your Means” by Warrior. *** Beware of some FOUL language! *** (4:55 in length)
