Let me upgrade you

imagesCA75G8D7Are you stuck in a rut and want to take yourself to the next level? Do you feel like you are ALMOST where you want to be but need that final piece? Maybe you just realize that it’s time to upgrade your life a little bit!

Beyonce & Jay-Z said in a song that they could upgrade each other. He was a millionaire rapper, and she was a millionaire singer but together, they have UPGRADED each other to BILLIONAIRE status. How did they do that? They both HUMBLED themselves into realizing that they were good without each other but could be great TOGETHER!

In order to make it to the next level, you are going to have to STEP your game up! You can’t keep expecting to do new things, running the same OLD way. They say insanity is doing the same things, expecting different results.

Let me PAINT a PICTURE…

What type of cell phone do you have? Chances are that you have an android, smart phone, IPHONE, etc. Now here this; I am betting that 80% of the population will have upgraded their phones since the “touch screens” have come out but are still operating the way they did when the Razors were out (2000) LOL! You got an IPHONE 5 but living the same way, you did when they had the RAZORS out?? That is the problem with most of US! I say us becasue I am guilty of this to, and I have to CHECK MYSELF! If I want to upgrade my life, I have to UPGRADE my life!

When you grab that new cell phone, what do you do with the old one? It doesn’t exist huh? Same rules applies if you are trying to upgrade your life. I am right now, the HEAVIEST I have ever been. I eat real good, I stopped smoking and I have an office at my day job. Point I am proving is, the OLD me was in shape but was a chain smoker, operatiing like a RAZOR PHONE. The new me is the IPHONE 4. I am not IPHONE 5S status yet (I need a gym membership for that) but I am definitely not the OLD ERIC!

Whenever you have that loser state of mind, you need to make a bold move!

You’re as good as you want to be!

In the past, sometimes I didn’t want to hear the truth about myself.  I always thought I was better than I was.  Only until recently, I have discovered that their is so much I don’t know.  Now, I’m addicted to know as much as possible.  To being the best dad, son, brother, worker, businessman and motivator.

In high school, I had this basketball coach that used to tell us that we were “as good as we want to be”.  Back then that statement didn’t really make much sense.  He would say the ones that start earned it.  Now I know why I always sat the bench.  I wanted to “play” but I wasn’t exactly trying to go to the NBA.

I never wanted to put in the extra work necessary to be the best.  I did just enough to make the team and most of the world, do just enough to KEEP THEIR JOB.  Only until we use W.I.T. (whatever it takes) to be the best, we will be the best. This applies to everything that has to do with out life. 

Lebron James is a great example.  Once he learned he needed to play with a star (Dwayne Wade) and he wasn’t  Michael Jordan did he start winning championships.  He developed a post game instead of shooting jumpers all games, and NOW he is good as he wants to be.  His first year with the Heat, they lost in the Finals to Dallas, was the best thing that happened to him, because he realized he wasn’t that GREAT yet.  So he worked on every negative of his game and look at him now.

We can all be that good but the question is, how bad do you want it?  I want it as bad as I want to breathe.  That’s why I write two posts a day, that’s why I get up at 7AM even though I get off my day job at 1AM.  I don’t count costs!  When you are passionate about something, you don’t let anything stand in your way! 

So I dare you to be great at whatever it is you do & fully committing yourself to being GREAT.  I’ll meet you at the top!!  WE GOT THIS!!
