Today I wanted to talk about divorcing the outcome and marrying the process. What does that mean? Well, it means that many people set wrong goals. Now we have the beginning of the year and everybody talks about the goals. So because it's beginning of the year everybody's got new year's resolutions everybody got goals and guess what, most people set results goals, so they go, “I want to get a Mercedes, I want to get a dream house. I want to make 50,000 a month. I want to lose 50 pounds. I want to do this.” It’s results goals. It is pointless, because you can sit there and go, “I want to get a car. I want to get a car. I want to get a car. I want to get a car.” You're not going to get a car because you want it so much. It's just not going to happen, just wanting it, just wishing for it isn't gonna happen and the results goals then are pretty crappy goals to have because you're right there, “I will have by the end of December my dream house. I'll just sit now and wait for my dream house to come.”
Boloney, BS, nonsense isn't going to happen, because basically you're in love with outcome, I want that outcome our that house, I want that money in my bank account, isn't going to happen, instead, you need to fall in love with activity, with the process so your goals have to be activity goals. If I want to get that Mercedes, what do I need to do every day to get that Mercedes, what do you all need to do every day in your business to make that 10,000 a month, what do I need to do in the gym every day to lose those 50 pounds? What do I need to do to get that? The result, the outcome, it's the effect. You can't change the effect. You need to change that cause. Cause and effect. So you need to focus on the cause, not an effect. Just wishing for money in your bank account is like wishing for effects. You don't wish for effect, you change the cause and the cause is your activity, it's the process. So what activity plan you can make, what daily method of operation you can make that would make your success INEVITABLE, and it's a very good word, you might want to write it down somewhere, inevitable.
What can you do every day and if you did that every single day consistently, your success would be inevitable. You getting that car would be inevitable. If you do that every day, it is impossible for you not to get that result. If you do that every day, it is impossible for you not to lose weight. And that's better because you can control your activity, but you can't control your results. I don't control how many people will join my team and my business because they have to make a decision, I can't make a decision for them. I can't control how many people will buy my product because they have to buy it, they have to make a decision to buy but what I can control is how many people are asked, “Hey, would you be open to take a look at my business opportunity? Hey, would you be open to earning extra income? Hey, would you take a look at my product? Hey, would you sample this product?” I can do that, I can control that, I can say “I’ll reach out to 10 people a day and ask them if they would be open.” Ask if they open and give them an out, “Hey, would you take a look at my opportunity to earn extra income, if no, no big deal. Maybe for you, maybe not for you, I don't know, but would you take a look? I'm just curious, if no, no big deal, totally cool.”
I can control how many, I can set a goal to reach out to 10 people a day, 20 people a day, 50 people a day, 100 people a day, depends how fast you want to get to that result, depends how fast you want to make that money, depends how fast you want that dream car, but you CAN control that, you can control how many sit-ups you'll do at the gym, you can control how many juices you'll drink a day, you can control activity, you can control the process but you can't control the outcome. You can't control the result. So why the hell would you set the goals for results instead set the goals for activity, set ACTIVITY GOALS, I'll speak to this many people a day, I'll speak to these many team members a day, I'll show products to this many people, etc. Activity, and make that plan so that the result is inevitable. If you do that every day, there is no way for you to fail.
That's better, isn't it? That's more watertight. That's more on point. That's more leading you towards that target. That's more giving you the result. Does this make sense guys? I hope to God this makes sense to you. So divorce the outcome and marry the process. Fall in love with the process, fall in love with activity, become addicted. Now, I hope not many of you on this call have been addicted, but I used to be a smoker. For 13 years, I used to smoke and I was addicted to that, I could not go a day without having a cigarette, I could not drive a car without having a cigarette. It was addiction and there is, of course a lot worse addictions than that. So my wish for you is to get addicted to that activity, to where you can't go a day without reaching out to so many people about your business opportunity, where you can't go a day without doing so many calls to your team members, where you can't go a day without doing the activity that makes your success inevitable. That is life changing, that is powerful, that is going to change your life in 2019 if only you get it, if only you apply it, if only you use it, otherwise, it's just a great training. “Oh, great training Gediminas, awesome.” Carry on doing nothing, terrific, fantastic, stroking my ego. “Oh yeah. You're amazing trainer.” But not doing anything.
No, no, no, don't make this another year, make this THE year. I want you to five years from now, 10 years from now go, “2019 was the year when everything changed for me, was the year when I started taking my life seriously, was the year when I had the breakthrough.” That's what I want for you. I'm passionate because I believe in you. There is greatness inside you. In your DNA, in your blood flows everything throughout the history, all the big leaders, all the Genghis Khan’s and all the Gandhi's and all the best leaders in the world, best politicians, best kings and queens. All of that is in your DNA. It's programmed within you, you can achieve anything you want. You have it within you. You just need to do it. You just need to believe in yourself and get out there doing it. That's my message for you for today.

Yours in success
