OK, let’s get right down to it. What is the single biggest decision you will ever make in life?
Is it where you will go to school?
Is it what job you will you work?
Is it who you will marry?
True, all of those decisions are very important. They are indeed life altering decisions, but they are nowhere near the single biggest decision you will ever make.
The reason for that is:
There’s an ENORMOUS difference between going to a school, and being INTO school.
There’s an ENORMOUS difference between working a job, and being INTO work.
There’s an ENORMOUS difference between getting married, and being INTO marriage.
WHAT AM I GETTING AT YOU ASK???
It’s this: The single biggest decision you will ever make is:
ARE YOU GOING TO BE:
IN IT – OR – INTO IT?
Are you going to be in school or INTO school?
Are you going to be in your job or INTO your job?
Are you going to be in a relationship or INTO your relationship?
If you’re “in school” – you’re enrolled.
If you’re “into school” – you’re involved.
If you’re “in a job” – you have a boss.
If you’re “into your job” – you are a boss.
If you’re “in a marriage” – you’re headed for divorce.
If you’re “into marriage” – you’ll be happily ever after.
The most important preposition in the world is “INTO.”
We all know we only get out of something what we put into it. We’ve heard that a million times. But it’s TRUE. It’s so true that it’s the main difference between winning and losing in life.
If you want to win in life it all comes down to these two words: IN VS. INTO
“In” means you physically show up and do little more than go through the motions.
“Into” means you’re physically, mentally, and emotionally absorbed in what you’re doing.
Basically just being IN it means you’ll get very little out of it. While being INTO it means you’re guaranteed to reap huge rewards.
That’s why the person who is INTO it makes amazing results seem easy.
That’s also why completing against someone who is INTO it while you’re just IN it is so disappointing.
It’s not even a contest. INTO ALWAYS WINS.
And the exact reason INTO always beats IN is because they understand how to tackle problems.
People who are INTO it realize a problem isn’t a problem. Instead it’s how the person handles the problem that’s the problem.
That’s why when INTO it people encounter a problem they get fascinated while IN it people only get frustrated.
Fascination opens the doors to possibility – That is why INTO it people WIN.
Frustration closes the doors to possibility – That is why IN it people lose.
It works out that way EVERY TIME. So now I ask you…
Are you going to be IN IT or INTO IT?
Are you going to HAVE A CHILD or BE A MOM OR A DAD?
Are you going to GO TO SCHOOL or BE A STUDENT?
Are you going to BE IN A PLAY or BE AN ACTOR?
Are you going to PLAY AN INSTRUMENT or BE A MUSICIAN?
Are you going to BE MARRIED or BE A HUSBAND OR WIFE?
Are you going to JUST HEAR or REALLY LISTEN?
Are you going to PLAY A SPORT or BE AN ATHLETE?
Are you going to GIVE A TALK or BE A SPEAKER?
Are you going to COOK or BE A CHEF?
Are you going to PLANT FLOWERS or BE A GARDENER?
Are you going to WRITE or BE A WRITER?
Are you going to SELL THINGS or BE A SALESPERSON?
Are you going to HAVE A JOB or HAVE A CAREER?
In other words:
Are you going to HOLD BACK or GO ALL OUT?
Are you going to COUNT THE DAYS or MAKE THE DAYS COUNT?
Are you going to be a SPECTATOR or a PARTICIPANT?
Are you going to SET YOUR LIMITS or STRETCH YOUR LIMITS?
Are you going to be IN IT or INTO IT?
Now here’s the REALLY BIG ONE:
Are you going to JUST LIVE or are you going to BE TRULY ALIVE?
Ask yourself what makes you come alive and inspires you to free yourself. And then go and do that thing.
That’s what your family needs. That’s what your community needs.
That’s what your country needs. And that’s what the world needs.
They all need people who are TRULY ALIVE. Now go be one of those people.
It’s what you were born to be. Now go do it and start living as the most complete version of yourself.
