What’s up, my friends hope that you're doing well. This weekend, actually, really the last couple weeks have been pretty insane. You probably notice we've been doing a lot of compilations on the podcast and so huge shout out to the Think Unbroken Podcast team for crushing it and helping us continue to put out content every day. I've been traveling pretty much nonstop speaking, working on Unbroken Con, being a podcast guest, working on the third book, the list goes on and on.
And this past weekend was a really incredible experience where we had a ton of the Unbroken Nation members in our masterclass for the Unbroken Con VIP and it's the Truths of Being Unbroken Masterclass it was an absolute thrill to be able to go in there and coach people for. Here's what's interesting about that course, it's like a two-hour course, and we went so deep, it ended up being like three hours long and I was like, I cannot believe these people are still in here with me so what a fun time, what an amazing time, and just to watch in real time the transformation people are having is unbelievable and a huge reason why I do this.
Later that afternoon, I ended up also going and speaking at Grant Cardone's event, which was phenomenal. If you don't know, Grant has someone who has invested into Think Unbroken in the past, someone I consider a mentor, someone who has helped me tremendously in my journey and I got the opportunity to go speak at one of his events again. So, now having done that a couple of times just really had this interesting thought about this concept and this idea of looking at our life, our dreams, and the way that we show up in our day-to-day life. And it dawned on me like, man, it's crazy how many people do not believe that their dreams matter like I was thinking about this, how often people will come to me and they'll be like, Man, I don't believe this is for me. I don't think it's gonna happen. I don't trust that I'm capable. I don't think that I matter. And I'm like, yo, your dreams matter the way that you exist in the world matter, the things that you want, you can have. And one of the things that happens is when we talk about this a lot, like our dreams get taken from us, but I would challenge you. I would challenge you to ask yourself, what are you really truly doing to pursue your dreams? It's okay that people don't believe in you that has nothing to do with you. Here's one of the really interesting things that I've discovered, the deeper that I've gotten into this journey of being this quasi-public figure, right? Speaking out Vince and having the podcast and Unbroken Con and all of the things, and it's like there are people, literally, guys, I'm telling you right now, this is fucking crazy to me, there are people who message me all the time, and they're like, who do you think you are to talk about this stuff and how dare you and what qualifications do you believe that you have? I'm like, well, you know, I've definitely got my 10,000 hours plus 30 plus trauma informed certifications, plus I've coached thousands of people around the world. And the thing that comes to mind is like when those people message me and I have the opportunity to think about how I want to interpret the information that they're giving me, and on one hand it's like I could be like, man, they're right, who am I? No high school diploma, no college education. I'm just this loser kid from the hood who got beat up by his parents all the time. Right? Or I could be like, well, actually I made a decision that I'm gonna pursue my dream of ending generational trauma in my lifetime. So, another kid doesn't have a story like mine. So I'm gonna take your opinion, I'm gonna say thanks, have a great fucking day. And that's what I do.
And the truth is like your dream, the thing that you want, you have the ability to manifest it. You have the ability to create it like we are all on this hero’s journey. It's not by happenstance or luck that I'm speaking on big stages, that we have thousands of people registered for Unbroken Con, that our weekly coaching program has people in it who want their lives to change, that's not luck, that's not happenstance. Like that's me sitting down literally with a pen and a piece of paper like this one right here, and writing down exactly what I want to a T with massive specificity and nuance and saying, Okay, if I can create this in my head, then I can make it a reality. I wrote this today on one of my posts on social media, I wrote, if you can think of something, you can do it. We are only ever limited by the actions that we take in our life. We are not limited by our dreams. I mean, think about some of the amazing dreams that you've had in your life, some of the things where you've been like, Oh man, how cool would that be if I could do that thing? Well, you can. That's what's so fascinating. You can. But you are limited by your decisions because your decisions are what create your life. Your decision to invest in yourself. Your decision to come to coaching, your decision to come to Unbroken Con, your decision to be a VIP, your decision to read books and show up for events and all of those things, those decisions lead down the path, right? Because here's what I think about all the time it's this concept in this word yet, right? When I've been creating so much of my life, I've always. I do not yet have the tools, the knowledge, the information, the expertise to be the person I know I'm capable of being. And so, that means there's always space for growth and iteration. And as long as I leverage the word yet, knowing that that simply signifies a timeline, not in inevitability. Right. That's what's really interesting, because I'll coach people and I'll be like, look, you don't have the skills yet. And some people will hear, I don't have the skills, and they forget the most important word, and that is this yet word because when you understand yet, that means you have the full capability and the ability to go and create anything that you want to do or create on a long enough timeline.
Most people are not patient enough and they don't think their dreams matter, so they don't make the decision to take massive action to get invested, to learn, to get educated, and to continue to go forward. When I think about the dreams that I have or Think Unbroken, like I want to impact the life of tens of millions and billions of people around the world to help them heal childhood trauma and abuse so that we can break the generational cycle. I want to heal these wounds and end this curse so that we can come together as a healed society and be the change that I believe we can see kinda like what Gandhi talks about, but the only way that that dream comes true is at first it has to matter to me. Don't ever do anything that doesn't matter to you, like, I mean that literally don't do shit for other people because if you do that, then what's gonna happen is you're gonna find that you're always spending your will building a life for someone else.
And I write it down, I have massive clarity about what I want, so I know that I need to have conferences and events and coaching programs and our weekly coaching and apps and all of those things. And so, what do we have to do? How do we build it? How do we create it? How do we get people into it? How do we get people to know that invest themselves is the truest aspect of freedom will come from investing in yourself. The truest form of trusting yourself will come from investing yourself. And so how do I teach people this? How do I educate them? Is it the podcast? Is it the book? Is it speaking? Is it this? Is it that? And then it's about deciding what I need to do on a day-to-day basis to make sure that my dreams and your dreams intersect each other.
