If everyone believed in themselves the way I believe in myself, the world would definitely be a better place. People would be happier – more focused on their goals and dreams and less focused on their problems. I would show you how I do it, but it has to come from the inside. You find it by searching fearlessly. When you do find “it” you know because you unlock the most incredible passion inside and you recognize that nothing can stop you now from reaching your goals. It doesn’t matter anymore when people tell you how difficult it will be. Those words have no meaning. It’s as if there is no longer room in my life for that kind of vocabulary. It has no place inside of me or around me and I even find myself removing myself from people who show any signs of a lack of faith in me. It doesn’t make any sense to engage with people like that. I want people who encourage and excite me. I want people who want what I want – to be free from the bondage that most people have imposed on themselves by labeling themselves with all kinds of limitations. A thousand versions of “oh I’ll never be able to do that” or worse “oh you’ll never be able to do that”. Those kinds of words are like spiritual poison. The other day I was talking with someone who said to me,

“..but Seth you have to be realistic!”

My response was “what does realistic look like?” Your reality is whatever you create. If we area created in G-d’s image then we all have the power to create. We create our own reality based on what we believe we are capable of doing and stopping exactly where we believe we are limited. So what does YOUR reality look like? What can you accomplish? Is there anything you can’t accomplish if you put your whole entire mind and heart into it? You owe it to yourself to find out who you really are as defined by what you really want to be doing with your time and your life. It makes me so sad when I speak to people who are admittedly unsatisfied with their lives yet they won’t do anything to change things because they think they can’t. They think it’s unrealistic. What’s unrealistic is to think that anyone or anything in this universe could possibly have intended for me to do or be anything other than what and who I have the potential to be. What and who I love to be.

Some people tell us that we have to do what they do – that we have to go according to their plan in order to achieve their kind of success. They’re wrong. You have to go according to your plan – you have to be dong what YOU love to do and what you want to be doing more than anything else in the world because when you are doing what you love to do that much, then no one and nothing can possibly stop you. Nothing can come between you and your ultimate success – there’s no room for obstacles, only ways to get around and over them. You can’t help but become the best at it because you love it more than anyone else. No one can possibly compete with you. There really is no competition because there is plenty to go around and your version of it is unique – no one else can possibly duplicate it because it has your own unique blend of spices added to it based on your own unique experience. This can never be duplicated. It can be mimicked, but never duplicated.

So to me, at this stage of my life it would be insane to be spending my time doing anything other than all of the things I love and none of the things I don’t love, and yes if I had it my way, everyone and I do mean EVERYONE would be in business for themselves. There would be no more employees – just people contracting to help other people and getting paid to live a life they love.

Imagine a world like this where everyone is so happy and grateful for the life they have that they can’t help but constantly look for more and more ways to help and give back. No one is bitter and no one is every telling anyone else that they can’t accomplish anything they want in their lives.
