The TRUTH about why you FEAR FAILURE! - I said this quote in one of my recent videos and it resonated with so many people. - “You don’t fear failure, you fear of lack of consistency!” - Why? Because if you were as consistent as you need to be, you wouldn’t be worried that you aren’t going to succeed! - Consistency leads to certainty! - The more consistent you are the more certainty and confidence you have towards your mission! - So if you don’t believe in yourself or in your future... become massively consistent and the certainty will follow!
WHAT YOU ARE USING RIGHT NOW IS LYING TO YOU... - Social media! - The way people portray themselves online can be described as nothing more than an illusion. - We get depressed because we see the 20% of people’s that are amazing... - We see the accolades, accomplishments, & flashiness of people’s lives and we compare it to ours... and it leaves us feeling empty. - Realize that you are only seeing the 20% of their life that is amazing and we assume successful people‘s lives are easy yet we don’t see the other 80% of their life that includes failure... sacrifices... late nights... and pain! - Failure, setbacks and pain is a part of the process! - You will never have the 20% of life that is glorious unless you are ok with suffering and persisting during the other 80%! - Don’t let all of the glamour on social media discourage you and distract you! - Realize that no ones life is perfect! - And anyone who is great has also been through great pain! - Because choosing the path to the top may include above average failure... above average sacrifice... above average loneliness... - But it also leads to ABOVE AVERAGE results and an ABOVE AVERAGE life! - Let’s gooooo!

I don’t give because I make money! I make money BECAUSE I give! - This is one of the single greatest things my dad, @mattmaddix, taught me! - When we had $7 in our bank account... he still would take us out to give back to the homeless even though we were almost homeless! - Why? Because he wanted to teach me that you don’t just give when you have money... you give NO matter what... and then you will have more money. - People message me all the time with the excuse that they can’t give back like I do because they don’t have money... - My answer? YOU HAVE TIME... YOU HAVE ENERGY.... YOU HAVE A SMILE! You have the ability to have a conversation with someone! You can always give back! - You don’t give when you have resources... you have resources because you give! - This epiphany is such a powerful one to have! - Start giving and serving as much as you can! - Because the best thing to do when nothing is going good for you... is to go do something good for someone else!
I AM MASSIVELY PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS TOPIC! - We get so angry that people don’t understand our vision... that people don’t believe in us... - But in reality... why should they?? - You can’t expect average minds to believe in your above average dreams!! - Realize that people love you in the best way they know how... even if it’s not the exact way you want them to love you! - Powerful stuff happens when you have this realization! - PS - This clip is from a panel I did with @theryanod, @caseyadams1 & @blakleyconnor at @buildyourempire’s event! Should I upload the full video to YouTube? 😈 🔥
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE FEAR OF FAILURE - I get messages constantly from people about how my videos motivate them and that they want to pursue their dreams... but they are afraid of the fact they might fail. - Here is the deal... the “fear of failure” is the BIGGEST myth that society constantly shoves down our throat! - Sure... if you start that business... you may fail... but if you don’t start that business, you are guaranteed to fail! - Sure... if you ask that guy/girl out... you may fail... but if you don’t, you have NO shot to go on a date with them. - You see where I am getting at? Being afraid to fail and never even attempting is literally the most GUARANTEED way to fail. - Let me ask you this.... Who is a real failure? - Someone who pursued what they wanted in life... and then failed... and then tried again... and then failed... and eventually had success and were able to live the life they wanted! - Or someone who never took a risk... played it safe... and never “failed”. But then they ended up on their death bed feeling like a complete failure because they never even attempted! - You have 2 choices in life... RISK or REGRET. - If you look at any successful Entrepeneur, Artist, Athlete, or any human being who has had success... they also had massive failure! - Why? Because FAILURE is the sauce that gives SUCCESS its flavor! - You cannot have success without failure! - If every single successful person failed... why do you think you are going to be any different? - There is no secret pill you can take that will stop you from failure. It is an inevitable part of the journey to the top! - So instead of fearing it... EMBRACE IT! Look forward to it! - Realize that failure is not the DEATH of success but rather it is the START of success! - When you fail... look in the mirror and get EXCITED! Realize that you just joined a group of world changers. You just did the same thing that Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Serena Williams, Elon Musk, and every person of greatness has done! You took a risk... you failed... and now you are one step closer to where you want to be! - You can either be CRIPPLED by the fear or be CEMENTED in greatness ;) Your choice - @calebmaddix
This is why we lack self esteem and confidence! - We call ourselves fat... stupid... ugly... we say we hate our life... but if our friend said it, we would want to fight them! - It’s unacceptable! It’s time we monitor the words we are saying! - We lack self esteem because of our self talk! - Liking the person you see in the mirror is the first step to us liking the person we see in the mirror!
🇺🇸A MESSAGE TO AMERICA:🇺🇸 . And really, for the world... . If you are not happy now... you will never be happy. . Here’s what that means . Too many people have “destination disease” . They keep thinking that the reason they are not happy now is that they are not where they want to be. . They think that when they make the money, then they will be happy. . They think that when they lose the weight, then they will be happy. . They think that when they get the fame and recognition they want, then they will be happy. . But truth is... if you are not happy in the midst of your failures and struggles, then you will never feel fulfilled in the midst of your accomplishments! . So stop waiting on the destination... and enjoy the journey. . Because once you truly take in the journey... then you will win! . Your circumstances don’t change your happiness... your happiness and gratitude changes your circumstances! .

A message for all the fellow entrepreneurs! - Posted this quote 2 years ago and it is still something I see today! - The key word is WORKing for yourself! - When you are an Entrepeneur you go from a 9-5 to a 24/7! - It requires more work when you work for yourself not less! - Yes you get more freedom! But if you let that freedom cause you to be complacent... very quickly you won’t be working for yourself! - I’ve been watching Sam Ovens very consistently lately... he talked about this... not allowing your “freedom” as an Entrepeneur hold you back. - With freedom comes an incredible amount of discipline! - Never stop obsessing ! - 💯💯💯 - Also, who can find the 180 logo? ;)
This is everything! - Don’t just work hard... find something that forces you to work hard! - When it’s 5 am and everything in you doesn’t want to get up... what is gonna be that thing that drives you? - When you just failed a business and everyone person around you is saying “I told you so”... what is gonna keep you going? - What is it? What keeps your fire burning? Is it your kids? Is it proving your parents right or giving them a better life? Is if the people you are impacting? - When I go through massive failures, set backs, and difficulties.. all I have to think about is the kids I am gonna Impact... the people’s lives that will be 180 degrees different... the fulfillment once my mission is complete.. that keeps me going! - Why do you work your face off!? Comment below! I’ll do my best to read them all! I’ll pick one person to get free access to one of my courses! - PS - Get ready for something I will be launching soon that will change MILLIONS of kids lives!!
Everyone talks about how to have a positive attitude... - But the truth is, there is no such thing as a positive attitude! Only positive perspectives and negative perspectives! - You’re life may not be exactly where you want it right now... but you can ALWAYS look with a positive perspective! - Some of our worst problems would be a PRIVILEGE to some people! - Replacing complaining and negativity with perspective and gratitude is so important! - So my encouragement is... next time you don’t feel like having a “positive attitude” take a second and try to look at a positive perspective of the situation! - Watch what this one thing does in ur life!
You need to have this chip on your shoulder! - Don’t try to make average minds understand your mission! If you are gonna live an above average life... you won’t be able to relate with average people! - Instead... strive to be called crazy! Those are the people that accomplish crazy things! - Tag someone who is crazy 😜
