The #1 Thing: Be Congruent

Practice 2: Be Congruent
At some point—often a major moment in their lives—high performers took control, defined who they wanted to be, and started living in accordance with that self-image. They shaped their identity by conscious will and have aligned their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to support that identity.

Inspirational Monday | The Single Greatest Quote Ever

I desperately needed a pick-me-up. After quitting a job last Wednesday, I was feeling sorry for myself and fear had set in. My mind was hijacked by fear, the fear of not being able to pay bills and financial fears. After this COVID months, there was only one place that had taken care of me during these COVID times, but this place was also notoriously known for forging my signature, lying to me, nickeling-and-diming me, as well as so many other things.

So, when I finally told them to FUCK OFF because I was done playing their racist games “blacks must take tests to prove themselves while whites can teach dogshit,” I heard a quote from my friend, and it forever shaped my life.

No more going small. My business is global.

Stephen Covey’s 8th Habit | Season 6 – Episode 22 | Our Second Birth-Gift: Natural Laws or Principles

“Natural authority is the dominion of natural laws. You can’t ignore natural laws, and you have no choice but to operate by them. All actions have consequences. Like it or not, when we pick up one end of the stick we pick up the other. If you jump off a ten-story building, you can’t change your mind at the fifth story. Gravity controls. That is the stamp of nature. Nature has also stamped people with the freedom and power to choose, and, therefore, they have natural authority or dominion over all of the rest of creation. Endangered species survive only by our consent. They don’t have freedom and power to choose. They lack self-awareness. They can’t reinvent themselves. They’re totally subject to humans, who, because they are self-aware, alone have freedom and power to choose and to reinvent themselves. This is natural authority.”

Excerpt From: Stephen R. Covey. “The 8th Habit.” Apple Books.
