I hate Michael Jordan (as a fan). In fact I have never owned a pair of shoes and I never will. I am a Los Angeles Lakers Fan bleeding Purple and Gold. But that doesn’t mean I can’t learn from him. Just study his career and you can apply it to your life and your business. Tai Lopez sent out an email and I think this can help you reach the next level. The one thing Michael Jordan did was believe in his ability to achieve his goals. The same with you:
You have to believe in the inevitability of your success. Of your life.
It’s that simple.
In the book, “When Nothing Else Matters: Michael Jordan’s Last Comeback”, the author says Michael Jordan, “Invented himself out of fantasies. Not as delusions but prelude, visions to be realized, destiny at the end of the lane.”
Most people operate out of either negativity or on the flip side out of delusion. You should avoid both. With Michael Jordan: “[Everything] derived from his sense of fate, the conviction that good things were meant to happen to him on a court, a gift unaffected by his struggles in a game.”
You Should Operate Out of Faith
1. Has to be earned: Avoid the delusion which whispers in your ear that your success is guaranteed. It isn’t. It only becomes inevitable when mixed with effort. Michael Jordan put in more hours than anyone – he was the first in the gym and the last to go home. No effort? Then no inevitability. You have to outwork everyone else. Then the inevitability is earned.
2. Comes from massive experimentation: There is this one story where Michael Jordan is getting old (He was 40 which is ancient in professional basketball), and a younger teammate, Rip Hamilton, challenged him to a bet on shooting half court shots (47 feet from the goal – that’s far – try it sometime):
“[Jordan] struggled with the half-court distance while expressing ever more confidence that the contest would soon turn, making this sound like fate: ‘Feelin’ good—oooh, almost, there it is,
startin’ to feel it, oooh, feelin’ it.’ Three more Jordan shots went wide, and the swishing Hamilton tacked on a couple hundred dollars more.
Jordan began improvising, seemingly compensating for his wrist’s tendinitis, adjusting his form, finally settling on a one-legged set shot that look borrowed from the ’50s and Bob Cousy, his left foot on the floor, his right knee lifted and bent.
He gave the ball one bounce, did a little hop, got a hip into the shot and flicked it, effortlessly. Finally, he started finding his range—“oooooh, oooooh, oooooh”—hitting 8 of his last 13 mid-court shots to win more than $1,000… Jordan won because he didn’t just have confidence and faith. He tweaked his technique.
Are you experimenting enough in your life?
In my new special test group, I’m mentoring people to run different experiments that can make them more money. I’m only opening admission to this test group for a limited time and those who get in will be accepted into my 3-month course.
Don’t Fall in Love with your Current Methods.
Let the disappointments slide off your back. Go forward and forget. Like the great Pulitzer Prize winner, Erich Remarque, wrote: “To forget is the secret of eternal youth. One grows old only through memory. There’s much too little forgetting.” Live the inevitability…
