I instantly begin with a RIVITING story about Michelangelo, the famous painter. The story demonstrates the topic of the show which is “Respecting Time”, “Valuing time”, and “Allowing time to show you the truth behind peoples motives, intentions and character instead of listening to their words.”
What is time, well to me its the most valuable thing in the universe. Because its the only thing you cant get back. No amount of money, praying, begging or pleading can get you back lost time. The billionaires of the world couldn’t bride Father Time.
What you do with you’re time…Work-Time, Spare-Time, & Play-Time, determines the Man or Woman you become.
The best investment you can make, is into time. It yields the greatest “R.O.I.” Return on investment.
Yes time is the most precious thing in the world, but you must remember the principle EFP “Everythings for Play”. So Experiment. Be curious. Grow some patience. Albert Einstein said “Curiosity is a sign of intelligence.” And I Believe Curiosity is a sign of greatness because it shows that your mind is still open to trying new things. Your not content. You havent quit looking for a way up and out. You still have some kid left inside of you.
The problem is that people run and jump into something without researching without experimenting, and speaking with experts. Be patient.
You know what my podcast coach told me? He said “Cosmo, your first 10 episodes are gonna be terrible”. “And that’s typically the minimum” “I said to myself, then I give myself the first 30 episodes.” I may be cocky in everything else, but when it comes to time, Im the most humblest. You cant out humble me when it comes to time.
Lets look at the backside of the principle of “Time”. THE FALL. Where do most people get caught up? There are thousands of books out there that tell you how to be successful, but I never see books “on how to stay broke”. Meaning, People always ask for the keys to success, but never inquire and seek out the keys to mediocrity and failure. Thats why I out-Coach most the life-coaches that are out there because not only do I study success, but I study failure. I study mediocrity, I stud excuses. Blamers and Complainers.
So Where do most people get caught up? Most get caught up in setting a goal, becoming excited and trying to move to quickly. Thus You are motivated, but not inspired. Motivation is when you are driven short term with emotion. Inspiration is less emotional, and is when you are drivien long term with a purpose.
Inspiration is the bridge that separates success from failure. Motivation is optional, Inspiration is a requirement.If I could sum up this principle of motivation vs inspiration.
Speed vs endurance 100 meter race vs a marathon runner
Inspiration is far more important than motivation. In fact, Most are motivated, but they never become inspired. Thats why they fail.
+You must identify whats wildly important because all motivation fades away. Lets go back to the core values of an Entrepreneur. If you didn’t listen to the show, check out “The 9 Principles of the Alphapreneur”. The core values of the Entrepreneur forms an acronym which equal the word Eradicate.
E-Everythings For Play. R-Respect. A-Attention To Detail. D-Detachment. I-Identify. C-Commitment. A-Allegience. T-Trust Worthy. E-Ethical.
But the 3 that we wanna focus on right now, are identify, commitment, allegiance. These are the middle principles, just like how the bridge between success and failure is Inspiration. You don’t reach success without first crossing them.
Once you “identify” whats wildly important, its pretty much a given that you will become “committed” because its important to you. After the commitment is made, then the allegience takes form. And Allegience is commitment on fleek. Its Commitment perfected. Now you have grown the ability, skill and muscle to respect time.
Time is a spirit. Its a real thing. At any point when you forget time, you disrespect the Father.
BREAK AND MESSAGE FROM OUR SPONSOR!
We looked at the principle of time from the front and the back, now lets look at it from the side. The older I get the more and more I see that it is Time that separates the truth from lies. Lies do last a short while, but the truth always prevails. Always has, Always will.
Whenever I hear people tell me that they are going to start some new habit, or get rid of an old habit I just laugh. Because I never listen to peoples words, I listen to your actions and to time. Thats What I listen to. Time is gonna tell me everything I need to know about who you are. Dont you get tired of listening to others peoples empty promises!
I can some up failure and mediocrity in 4 words. No Patience No Money. Those 2 are correlative, meaning they a mutual relationship; Every goal, and success ive accomplished happened because of patience and maintenance. This is the last aspect don’t miss it. Patience and maintenece.
Here what you probably don’t realize. Everything in life requires maintenance. Everything you do, I do, and everything in nature requires maintenance. This is the missing link that most authors and teachers don’t speak about.
Everything in life requires maintenance. Life can be boiled down into one word maintenece. You eat to maintain your body. You sleep to maintain your energy. You shower and clean your home to maintain hygiene. You Pay bills to mainten your shelter.
When professional sport teams practice, that’s maintenance of their craft. Its all maintenance! Patience and Maintenance.
