“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” – Anonymous
Since my arrest, I have made it my mission to completely transform my life from an international drug trafficker, to a motivational guru. And why might you ask? Because it is my way to pay back the world for all the chaos I have caused. From behind the wall, I have found the secret to joy and contentment. Thus, if I can feel joyous and content in here, why can’t you out there? Through my weekly posts, I want to continue to share inspiring messages that motivate you to chase your dreams, and today, I want to discuss the “Three P’s” That Lead To Success!
George Bernard Shaw once said, “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, they make them.” This comment couldn’t be any closer to the truth. For me, I have absolutely accepted my current circumstance, and have developed ways to achieve my goals. I never blamed my imprisonment, for I put myself in here. Besides, what good would that do anyway. Blame never produces results.
We only grow when we are uncomfortable, and have to adapt, improvise and overcome. Something humans are quite good at. And what I reflect upon personal mastery, the “Three P’s” come to mind. The first P is Patience. For everything that’s good in life takes time, and we will need a whole lot of patience to achieve personal mastery. Luckily for me, prison has taught me to be extremely patient. Just remember that through patience, we can overcome any circumstance. Secondly, we have Persistence. Newt Gingrich said, “Persistence is the hard work that you do after you are tired of doing the hard work you already did.”
And he’s right! If you persist through life’s difficulties, never conceding to defeat, you’ll conquer your every desire. The last P is for Perseverance. Essentially, the tool we use to maintain motivation, positivity and energy after failures. Getting back up after every fall. Succeeding despite all of the setbacks. Even Yogi Berra has been quoted saying, “The game isn’t over till it’s over.” Therefore, fully embrace the attributes of Patience, Persistence and Perseverance, and watch the Three P’s completely transform your life!
