When you become a bitcoin professional your life gets very simple.
The amateur is an egotist. He or she takes the material from their life and uses it to draw attention to themselves. He or she creates a persona or a character for the world to see.
Going professional is an act of dying to self. No ego, no distractions, no big hype. No pretense. You know it when you see it. We aren’t stupid. We know when people are playing a part, we know when people aren’t being themselves.
The amateur identifies with his own ego. He believes that the ego is who he is. The amateur is a narcissist. He views the world hierarchically. He continues to rate himself in relation to others, becoming self-inflated if his fortunes rise, and desperately anxious if his star should fall.
These amateurs crave third-party validation. The amateur is plagued by his imagined conception of what is expected of him. He is imprisoned by what he believes he ought to think, how he out to look, and what he ought to do, and who he ought to be.
The amateur competes with others and believes that he cannot rise until a competitor falls.
If the amateur had the power, they would eat the world, not knowing that in doing so, would mean his own extinction.
A professional on the other hand worries not about the perception of others. They are doing a good work. They cannot come down. They know themselves, they know where they are going. They have most likely created a personal vision and mission in life… like what we’ve talked about in previous B90X videos.
Going pro means shedding all of that excess weight. You are the only one who can change your life. The time is now, no one can do it for you. And frankly, no one is interested in you enough to change your life for you.
In today’s B90X exercise, I’d love for you to share with us: Who are you comparing yourself to. How are you deceiving yourself and how are you rating yourself against others?
You probably already know why this is not a positive position to be in. Are you living the truth of your life? Or are you living your life according to the perceptions of others?
