“Your obsessions become your possessions.” Ed Mylett

The word “obsessed” gets a bad rap. And there’s indeed some merit to that.

But let’s try to define “to be obsessed” a little further. What it’s not defined by is “hours put in.” There may be a correlation, but not a causality. One is truly obsessed with something when their passion and fire for “that thing” is so great, that their willpower will see them through even the harshest of storms. Where every other person quits… they push on. To one who is obsessed, failure is simply not an option.

Be obsessed with reaching our dreams.
Be obsessed with becoming a better husband, a better wife, a better son and a better daughter. A better friend and a better neighbor.

Be obsessed with what we care about the most. Our fiercest willpower, pointed in the right direction, is the most powerful thing in the world.

“I want to see it before I believe it.”

We are visually oriented people. We seem to trust our eyes more than our senses.

That’s why we call our ultimate direction our “vision.” It’s why in the middle of the night, if we think we hear something, we want to take a look before we feel safe enough to fall back asleep. We can hear news through the grapevine, but we doubt it until we see it.

Recognizing this, we can leverage it to our advantage. Many of us will agree that there is power to writing down our goals, and this is why. We begin to believe it that much more. It feels that much more real.

Write down our vision. Write down our goals. Write down anything that is important, not because it’s a mundane task; but because we need to see it, before we believe it.

“There will never be a better you, then you.”

There is a lot to be said about authenticity. The first definition in the M-W dictionary reads: “worthy of acceptance or belief.” If there’s one sure way to find failure in something, it’s through not being ourselves. It just doesn’t pan out in the long run. While we always should remain a student, the harm lies in when we blur the lines between emulating the traits of our mentors; with trying to be them.

Our mentors do not wish for us to follow in their footsteps. Our mentors wish for us to go further, to blaze the path further than before.

We have incredible leaders to guide us. But it is now on us to push even further. And there’s no one suited better for that, than you.

“Do not fear failure . But be terrified of regret.” Ashley Soughtly Spaulding

The reality of life is that we hear more “no’s” than “yes’s”. And we will fail. A lot.

But despite the hundreds of doors closed on our phase, the hundreds of times we are told “no way” they will haunt us. What we will regret will be the instances where we gave up. Where we told “ourselves” no.

We don’t fear failure, we welcome it. It’s where the learning occurs. Where the real magic happens.

“The soul is like a bowl of water.” Epictetus

It’s ok to get ruffled sometimes. We are indeed human and will get emotional at times.

The analogy that Epictetus depicts for us is that even though we can be rocked, knocked around, and shaken through disciplined stillness we can ALWAYS find emotional stability. The visual is quite relatable: a bowl of water, disturbed from some event, has ripples running throughout it. It’s not at rest.

But with disciplined focus and effort we can regain stillness. Often faster than we think. In the moments where we are most shaken, remind ourselves of this visual. No matter how bad things get, everything is recoverable.
