This is why some people always succeed – You Must See This – Motivational Video


Working hard is the cost of entry to
anything you know zero people that are successful that don’t work their face
off you know zero people now they may have money because mommy and daddy made
money and gave it to them but people that actually built their own success
you know zero people that have had success that did not put in obnoxious
amount of work I believe anything is possible right I live in the world of
possibility and I also believe that anything we can accomplish anything with
our two hands and just putting in the work with our two hands and also you
hear this often but it’s really really true if you love what you do and if I and be passionate about what you do and find
something that you could be passionate it really helps you know it gives
you that motivation when you wake up in the morning. My work ethic and my desire
to create comes from honestly passion I always have a goal and I always have a
dream so whether it’s you know creating a song that’s going to be a single or
it’s going to be an album that I’m most proud of or a really high note on my
album that I really want to be able to sing or a grammy one day or a
nomination one day It will be awesome. I always have passion
behind it so whatever it takes I’m gonna work hard and just continue to follow my
dreams because I have the passion behind it. So how do I find my passion my simple
model which is the Dharma model it also dharma means eternal duty in the Vedic
tradition it’s very similar to what Ikigai has been spoken about today which
is the Japanese version of reason for being why do we live where is meaning
coming from and it talks about an intersect of four areas. What am I good at what do I love what is the world need how do I get paid for it To me those four help you unlock your passion when you find the intersect across all of
those four you’re making your passion your purpose you’ll unlock your passion
you’ll find your purpose this is path one there’s two paths path one I find my
skill set and I engage it to help other people and become better at it so I’m
becoming better what I’m good at and I’m using it to help other people because
I’m aware of what I’m quite good at and I know what knowledge I have what
skills I have I have some self-awareness the other path that people often miss is
actually I just start serving people I just start helping people and I start to
notice what I enjoy about that and what I’m good at helping people with so
that’s Gandhi’s part Gandhi said that you find yourself when you lose yourself in
the service of others, so for me those are the two paths of how do I find my
passion and finding the intersect between those four areas. People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you’re doing and it’s totally true
and the reason is because it’s so hard that if you don’t any rational
person would give up it’s really hard and you have to do it over a sustained
period of time so if you don’t love it if you’re not having fun doing it you
don’t really love it you’re gonna give up and that’s what happens to most
people actually if you really look at that the ones that ended up being successful in the eyes of society and the ones that didn’t
oftentimes it’s the ones that are successful loved what they did so they
could persevere when it got really tough and the ones that
didn’t love it quit because they’re sane right? who would want to put up with this stuff if you don’t love it so it’s a lot
of hard work and it’s a lot of worrying constantly and if you don’t
love it you’re gonna fail so you got to love it you got to have passion My three E’s are element, environment and energy everyone has an element that they thrive
in if you take someone out of it their element they won’t be the same a
modern-day example will be Michael Jordan he was incredible at basketball
you took him out of basketball put him into baseball no one remembers his
career we’re talking about one of the best athletes of all time, your environment
is the environment around you you can take a fish out of water and give it a beautiful mansion and a Bentley and all the money in the world but it will die and
that’s what we are like our environment everyone is in an environment in which they thrive, which we have to craft, your boss if you’re at work is never going to ask
anyway what environment do you succeed in? like that never happens, so we have to create an environment where we thrive and then finally it’s energy, some of us love high energy environments, high pressure
some of us succeed in lower energy environments and low pressure, figuring
out your energy and the frequency on which you operate best will help you
thrive as well so for me those are the three E’s to really create a thriving
environment, know your element know your environment and know your energy and so
on all times if I see anything going wrong I’m going is my element out of
alignment is my environment out of alignment or is my energy out of
alignment that’s a great three question test you can do to yourself when you
don’t think things are going right and all you have to do is bring that back
into alignment. Jay my relationship’s falling apart I get asked that all the time so the answer to that is much harder it’s harder to summarize it
but I always start with self-actualization that the problem is
we have a list for the one that we want and we don’t have a list for what we
need to become and I don’t mean become to attract I mean become to just be to just get to understand yourself you don’t know what
you need in your life until you figure out who you are and so I find too many
people rush into relationships without really recognizing and being fully aware
of what they need from a relationship so it all comes back to how aware are you
how much understanding do you have of yourself and what you need and what you
want that’s my best advice for relationship in like a minute and then
the third question I mostly get asked is Jay what do you read like what are your
favorite books because it seems you read a lot what are your top three books
they’re not groundbreaking in the sense that people may not be like oh that’s
the best book I’ve ever read for me they changed my life so that’s where I’m coming at a point from I love Start with why by Simon Sinek
and not because I applied it to businesses because I applied it to my life and even
today I’m constantly refining my why that’s all I do every day my deepest
morning routine and practice is to refine why I do what I do it’s so easy
for me to now do it for money it’s so easy for me to now do it for followers
it’s so easy for me to now do it for fame and every day I have to refine that
because I know having lived as a monk and what I practiced and if does become
what I want then I’ll forget who I need to be so my daily practice my daily routine is refining my intention which in modern
language is why so for me Simon’s book helped me do that. First and foremost what
what I think everybody should do and even I’m saying this actually I’m giving
myself advice right now I’m just getting meta and stepping away from this
interview, you need to do things that make you a little uncomfortable way too
many people have made decisions without ever trying, right so the punchline is this Here’s what I’ll say on this little genres as we’re jamming
on it. You have one life like one of the great things that happened to me growing
up was there was a lot of grandparents that visited I had a lot of kids in my
neighborhood and for some unknown reason I don’t know if I’m an old soul or what
it is I used to on the playground go and sit with old people and just talk to them and let me tell you one thing about old people 80,90
the one thing that is stuck with me as a child and sits with me today is they
regret, regret scares the crap out of me Elvis Do you have any regret right now?
no but I’m forty so I feel like I can get a lot of things done, I feel
like a lot of things are still in front of me but when you get to 80 and 90 and
you can’t do everything and you know that you don’t have as much time with
the one thing I see in so many of their eyes is I wish I There’s only one you.
Because there’s no one like you I don’t mean the superfluous, superficial
parts I’m talking about the core of you who you are inside, your values your
beliefs your flaws and once you understand who really that person is
you would have taken the first step in finding your unique self and that is
the best version of you. Who am I really? Most often we don’t allow ourselves the
ability to dream beyond our imagination we don’t allow ourselves to think about
the future because we are afraid of change we are afraid to move away from what is familiar either that or sometimes you know we are
too rigid to let our dreams evolve loosen up, shake it off a little bit
change is the only constant thing in life and you are never too old or never to
experienced to learn something new believe that you have everything already
in your will to be able to be and achieve your dreams. Be fearless I know I wanted to become an aeronautical engineer, what am i today
I’m an actor, I’m a singer, I’m an author I’m a producer, I’m an artist
how did I go from becoming an engineer to all of these things I made choices
the choices that I wanted for myself so that is my rule number two let your dreams fly, give them wings, be who you want to be just by being fearless Opportunities, that’s another important part of being fearless, they are a very
funny thing, these opportunities they don’t come very often they come far and
few in between but when they do do we recognize them Our job is to recognize
them and make the most of them I look back on all the things that I’ve done
and I marvel at the opportunities that came my way, Miss India, Miss World, when I was in bareilly in army school my first film offer, my first music
single the first film I actually produced there was never a plan ever
more like the universe sort of guiding me towards these opportunities all I had
to do was recognize them and make sure I worked so hard that I squeezed every
drop out of these opportunities This ladies and gentlemen is called drive
it’s called ambition so no matter where you are in life rule number three is you
have never arrived enough to explore new opportunities And there’s nothing wrong with being ambitious You will need to find your passion, many of you have
already done it many of you will later many of you may take til your thirties
or forties but don’t give up on finding it because then all you’re doing
is waiting Find your passion and follow it and if there is anything I have learned in my life you will not find that passion in things and you will not find that passion in money, because the more things and the more money you have the more you will just
look around and use that as the metric and there will always be someone with more so your passion must come from the things that fuel you from the inside and honors and awards are nice things but only to the extent that they regard the
real respect from your peers and to be thought well of by other
people that you think even more highly of is a tremendous honor that I’ve been
granted find your passion and in my experience no matter what you do at work
or what you do in official settings that passion will be grounded in people and
it will be grounded in the relationships you have with people and
what they think of you when your time comes and if you can gain the respect of those around you and the passion and true love
and I’ve said this before but I waited till 39 to get married because I had to
wait that long to find someone where her happiness was more important than mine
and if nothing else I hope that all of you can find that kind of passion and
that kind of love in your life
