What’s shakin’, Hey, I’m Rick Jordan, today we’re going all in. I’m gonna start with this. The person who shared this with you today wants you to know that you are strong, you are beautiful. And you can take on anything.
Now I’m starting with that, because now I’m going to ask you to share this out with three people. But today’s meant to start to push this out, because people you know, need a little bit of a boost. There’s a lot of stuff falling down in the world right now and everybody can use a little boost.
There’s people that are starting to lose their jobs now. Interest rates are getting higher, there’s a lot of things that are going on that are not cool. They’re not fun. But today, I want to let you know that this is just for a season. And the next steps that you take are completely up to you because things may have happened to you, but that’s okay, that’s okay. Because here’s a concept you need to grab today is that life is happening for you know, not to you.
Life is happening for you, and not to you.
If you just lost your job, or maybe you’re scared that you’re going to lose your job, you start to think about all the things you might not like about that job, you know maybe you’ve been there a while or maybe it’s time for you to just level up.
You know, when I got laid off before I started my company 12 years ago, I was having fun, I thought it was great. I saw myself climbing the corporate ladder was awesome. And then boom, they eliminate the division atoms as my twins were born. You know what if that didn’t happen, I never would have been in the place that I am right now to where I just took my company public.
I actually found on in reflection, looking back that I was holding myself back, I didn’t even realize it because I was in the middle of it. You may not be able to see that now. But this could be one of the best things because you are strong and the person who shared that with you, this episode with you wants you to know that, that you are strong. Whatever is coming at you right now, you can handle it. As long as you do something about it. Because real strength is an action, real strength is in making a choice, real strength is making a decision, real strength is taking the next step, sometimes the only step that you can see right now, that’s strength. And I know that you can do that, because tons of other people have done it too.
Because probably the person who shared this with you has done it or has that much faith in you because you are strong and whatever that next step is, it might look scary, it might look unknown to you, because it might be something that you’ve never done before. You’ve never done something until you’ve actually done something. Everything new is new until it’s not. That’s the whole point of this, which means that when you look back and you take a look and said, Oh, I did that the first time, it didn’t really go that great. But the second time I did it, I learned something from the first time then you know what I crushed it. Or maybe I got incrementally better the next 17 times I had to do it. That’s how this works.
When you’ve done that before, that shows you that the person that shared this with you knows that you can take on anything, anything new. I know if you sat down right now that you can actually think of what your next step is. I’m not saying what you’re going to do six months from now, I’m saying what the first thing, the next thing that you can do right now.
If you just got divorced, maybe it’s just going out with a friend. That might be your next thing. If you just lost your job, it could be just looking for a new job. It could be trying to take that step into what you actually wanted to do which means maybe getting some new training to do something brand new, that you’ve never done before.
Because the person that shared this with you wants you to know that you are strong. You are beautiful. You’re amazing and you can take on anything.
I know you needed this today because now you’re going to share this out with other people that you know that need this because the next thing, the only thing for you to do right now is take the only step, the next step that you can see right in front of you.
I love you go ALL IN.
