Anthony’s Favorite Success Quote
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ~Theodore Roosevelt
Key Points from my Interview with Anthony DiClementi
1. Think Less Do More
So many people who are involved in the world of personal development make the critical mistake of absorbing too much information without taking the requisite action that makes that information valuable.
If you are not where you want to be in your life despite the books, online courses, and seminars, then stop what you are doing right now and go take some freaking action.
Don’t read another book about fitness, go to the damn gym and lift some weights.
Don’t watch videos on pickup, go talk to the next pretty girl you see.
Quit watching Shark Tank and go take the first step to starting your own business.
The simple truth is that success is hard. It takes time, patience, failure, and iteration. You will never get it right on the first go and the more time you spend thinking and analyzing your goals and vision, the less time you’ll spend actually moving the needle forward and making progress.
So commit to taking action. Take the first step today and realize that you can learn what you need to learn along the way.
Go pick up a barbell and do some deadlifts. Once you’re in the gym consistently, then you can worry about rep scheme, time under tension, and supplementation.
Go talk to the next attractive woman you see. Once you start interacting with women in the real world, you’ll gain a better understanding of your strengths and weaknesses and can learn how to improve your interactions with women from there.
Go launch your website and start building your email list. Once you have taken action, you’ll figure out the lessons you really need to scale to the next level.
2. How You Feel Doesn’t Matter
If you only do what you feel like doing, you will never accomplish anything great in your life.
There will be times where you don’t want to work, put time into your relationships, or go to the gym.
But guess what?
It doesn’t matter, if you want to succeed, you have to control your emotions and not allow them to control you.
Remember that motion creates emotion.
Even if you don’t feel like working, as soon as you sit down to work, you will become motivated.
As soon as you set foot in the gym, you will find yourself more energized and alive.
Your feelings are fleeting. They are a fickle mistress that will abandon you when you need them most and attack you when you expect them the least. To accomplish great things, you must learn to take action despite your emotions. You must learn to overcome the way you feel and focus on what you value.
Your mission, your goals, and your life are more important than how you feel in the moment. And the more you can learn to act in alignment with your values instead of your feelings, the better and more successful your life will be.
3. You Need Someone Who Has Achieved What You Want
If you want to achieve the highest levels of success, you need a coach or mentor.
There’s no way around it.
No way great has ever succeeded without someone smarter and more talented then them guiding their path and advising them on the best course of action.
If you are overweight despite going to the gym and eating well, hire a coach who can show you where you are taking improper action so you can achieve your dream body.
If your life is going downhill quickly despite your best efforts, hire a coach who can help you to achieve your goals and who can point out your blindspots and weaknesses and help you overcome them.
When you have objective outside eyes on your life from people who have “been there, done that”, you won’t have to wonder if you’re doing the right things. You will know you are on the path to success and you’ll be able to take massive and strategic action toward achieving the life you’ve always wanted.
4. Success Starts with Your Mindset and Your Routines
The key to success starts in your mind and is then translated into your routines.
If you can show me someone’s routines, I will show you their outcomes and their levels of success in every area of life.
To succeed, you must develop rock-solid routines to ensure that you can achieve at the highest level.
This means creating a morning routine, exercising regularly, spending time around people who are smarter then you are, and educating yourself on a daily basis.
There is no way around it, your routines and mindset determine the quality of your life.
5. If You Want to Transform Your Life Start with Your Health
If you really want to transform your life, start with your health.
If you have more energy, a more balanced body, and higher cognitive function, everything else will start to fall into place.
You will be sharper at work, more motivated, more fluid in social situations, and, of course, a helluva lot sexier.
Your body is your home, take care of it and don’t take it for granted.
