What made Muhammed Ali the best Boxer in the world?
What made Michael Phelps go above and beyond every time he swam?
How come Gandhi made so much more of an impact than anybody else?

None of them were exceptional people since birth.

Sure, there is the claim that Michael Phelps, for example, has double the lung-capacity of most humans, which has been disproven.

And while he does have some physical advantages, like longer arms and shorter legs, while being tall, so does everybody else he is competing against!

What made the difference in their ability was not their born…

Do you ever feel like there is something missing in your life? Like the zest to it all just isn’t there anymore?

Or do you ever look back to the times when you were a kid and wish you could go back?

I know I did. For the longest time I wish I could have gone back to that freedom I had back then.

To times where I was running around outside without a care in the world, times I fell flat on my face, and the times none of that bothered me.

Thinking back, those were the times that…

Your comfort zone is not this giant, magical, box that you have to force yourself out of with one big shove to be forever free of.

The whole concept of doing 1 truly uncomfortable thing to get you comfortable with it is dumb.

But that does not mean coming out of your comfort zone is complex; it’s actually quite simple, as long as you do it one step at a time and stay consistent.

It’s the practice over time that changes your comfort zone, not the one giant step that breaks it completely; which many people seem to get confused…

  • Slowing Down — The first money made is often the first sign of success in a Freelancer and/or Entrepreneur and it often signifies a job well done and a time for rest. The problem with this is that most of the time, taking that liberty slows them down in the process it took for them to get that first pay. Which just results in them stressing out again once that pay ceases due to their lack of work.
  • Not Leveraging enough — Most Freelancers are too afraid to get reviews from their customers because they do not feel confident enough…

It might be tomorrow, next week, or in a year from now. You might be well prepared, knowing it well in advance, or might go out in the blink of an eye.

Life can end at any point in time.

And even if you live to a ripe, old age, and are well prepared for the end, looking back on life it will still seem that it all went by incredibly quickly.

Do not wait any longer. Your Life is too short NOT to go for what you want!

It’s too late and you are too old to keep waiting

In your 20s you have a certain power that will never be as powerful going forward: The Power to Screw Things Up!

Barely any mistake, failure or screw-up can permanently damage you or your life at those ages.

You still have the body, the mind and the time to make it all up and that is a phenomenal strength, because it allows you to explore!

Not all the investments you will make are going to be golden! Some will be piles of crap, but that’s okay!

If you spend the time you have now to grow, to become better than…

The truth is that many lazy people are actually perfectionists that overburdened themselves.

They want everything to go right and want to win so badly that they pressure themselves more than anybody else.

It’s these perfectionists that get in their own way more than anybody else because they have a hard time dealing with the failures along the way.

You likely have some of these aspects as well.

It might be because you want everything to go perfect, because you do not want to fail like so often in your past, or because you are tired of waiting for life…

Who cares?

I mean, really, who in the world cares if you doubt yourself?

No one in this world is going to care one way or another. Your boss only wants results, your friends only want the good sides, and even your partner cannot see inside you.

So what does it matter?

What does it matter whether you can do something or not? It’s not like anyone really cares and not like thats really going to stop you from trying.

Besides; What if you can make it?

What if there is even a tiny chance that you could do it…
