Limitation creates value. If there were a million people who could play basketball like Lebron James, nobody would know who Lebron James is. The more limited you are, the more valuable you become.
Whatever it is that you are doing in the moment, be the best in the world at it.
Create a lens through which you see the world. You control what affects YOUR world. What you allow to enter your world shapes who you become.
Be My Word (BMW). If you make commitments, keep them. If Steve tells you that he will be at a certain place at a certain time, he will be there at that time. If he says he will spend X minutes with you, expect for him to spend exactly X minutes-no more, no less.
Fear does not exist in the world. I could never bring Steve a cup of fear. You cannot find fear. You can only create it in yourself.
Steve taught me that if I want some thing I should write it down 10 times every day. And he also taught me how to visualize.
"Listen. Commitment rocks the world. You want something to shift in your marriage? You want something to shift at work? You want something to shift at school? Get committed. When you are committed, the world lines up to support your commitment. It's like a black hole. Commitment has gravitational power. Everything you need moves to the commitment.”
Steve finished, "I give you the same challenge I gave Deuce. Go find a quiet place. Ask yourself What is it I want? What is it I could commit to?' And look inside. Be quiet long enough to see something.”
