"We grow by dreams. All big men are dreamers. Some of us let our dreams die, but others nourish and protect them,
nurse them through bad days ... to the sunshine and light which always come" Woodrow Wilson
It’s no secret that I want to be successful. That I want to improve, grow and be a better person than I was yesterday. 📈
But what does success actually mean?
For me, success is two things.
1. Making the world a better place. 🌎
2. Personal and Financial freedom. ⛰
Making the world a better place is a simple one for me.
I get my joy from helping others. By assisting them and guiding the way to help them achieve their wildest dreams and smallest of wins.
My vehicle for doing this is Virtus Performance.
I want everyone who walks through the doors and all who consume our content to be better for it.
I’m lucky enough to have surrounded myself with people who want to do just that.
Make the world a better place.
That’s our mission, and we have the opportunity to live up to it each day. 👬
Freedom for me is two-fold.
First of all personal freedom. This is also simple.
For me to wake up in the morning, and go to bed at night and do the things I desire in between.
I want to spend as little time as possible doing things that I don’t enjoy.
Life is too short to not love what you do if you love every minute, even the struggle doesn’t feel like a struggle.
My big hairy audacious goal is to grow Virtus to a stage where we can help more and more people daily.
We change people’s lives, that is a responsibility that I take seriously.
To grow Virtus is to help more people.
I won’t ever shy away from that, and I won’t ever stop striving to make it a reality.
My secondary goal is to have the means to travel the world with KP for 6 months at a time, and know that Virtus growing and helping more people daily without me needing to be in the thick of the action day in and day out.
I want to empower people to grow and learn so they can do the same. 📚
I’m not necessarily going to get on a plane and not come back for 6 months, but knowing that we have the means to would be an incredible achievement. ✈️
Now how am I going to become successful?
Great question. To an extent, I already am.
I have an amazing partner KP, an incredible family, fantastic friends and a team at Virtus who has helped turn my vision, into our vision.
But to get to where I want to go, I need to continually improve who I am as a person.
I do this by surrounding myself with people better than me, by listening, reading, reflecting and having the courage, determination and discipline to not let my dreams die, nourish and protect them, nurse them through bad days ... to the sunshine and light which always come. ☀️
Some days I’ll do great things, some days I’ll fail, the more mistakes I make the more opportunities I’ll have to learn and grow.
The courage to listen to my heart and stay on track will be more important than always listening to my head. 🤔
“No, you do not have a thousand years to live. Urgency is in you. While you live, while you can, become good” Marcus Aurelius
Every day we have the opportunity to walk towards or away from our dreams, I make the choice to walk towards them. 🚶♂️
What choice do you make?
