Hey, Think About This

We are going to go deep today.

It has nothing to do with email clicks and everything to do with the rest of your life.

Let’s talk about…

The Fight.

You have a devil on your shoulder. An angel on the other. So do I. We all do. And they are fighting. The Devil wants you to stay in your comfort zone. The Angel wants to see you achieve your dreams. Sad thing is that for most people, the devil wins. But NOT for you. You’ll win this fight.

Now your devil might be raising a lil’ hell lately. But here’s why. It’s because he knows he’s in the final rounds and he’s bleeding bad. Your good habits, your commitment, and persistence have beaten him down over the last few months. That’s why he’s swinging for the fences. He’s scared. It’s time for you to deliver the knockout blow.

Every step you take in the right direction, and every time you make the right choice in the face of temptation, you put the hurt on your bad habits. You make your Angel stronger and you get closer to your dreams.

Remember that with every action you take today… with every temptation that comes along and with every obstacle that people put in your way. When you make the right choice for your right life, you knock that devil down again. One more time and you just might knock him out for good.

So keep going… keep punching… keep fighting. You will win. I believe in you.

As you keep winning, there are questions you must ask yourself about what you are fighting for. I really enjoyed this exercise from Greg McKeown.

Take some time to answer these. I’ll even share my answers with you to give you a quick start.

Step 1: Write down the question “What would I do if I only had a week left to live?” and take 10 minutes to write down your answer.

  • Spend every moment with my family
  • Give away all my money

Step 2: Write down the question, “What would I do if I only had a month left to live?” and take 10 minutes to write down your answer.

  • Spend every minute with my 5 families (Ballantynes, Keuilians, Smiths, Marions, and Team ETR)
  • Film videos of the 3-5 biggest lessons from my life to pass on to the world
  • Give away all my money

Step 3: Write down the question, “What would I do if I only had a year left to live?” and take 10 minutes to write down your answer.

  • Spend every minute with my 5 families (Ballantynes, Keuilians, Smiths, Marions, and Team ETR)
  • Film 1 more workout product to cement my legacy – just can’t help filming workouts! 🙂
  • Film videos of the 3-5 biggest lessons from my life to pass on to the world
  • Give away all my money

Notice that I…

  • Don’t care about checking off some silly bucket list of items like “bungee jumping in the Amazon jungle”
  • Don’t care about buying things
  • Don’t care about making more money, just giving it away
  • Care about people, experiences, and legacy

That’s right for me. I’m not saying it’s right for you.

But no matter what, please do the right things for your right life – always.

Right on,

Craig Ballantyne

PS – If you have a full life left…

…do this:

“Learn something that is valuable to others. Learn everything about it. Then maximize your earning from that knowledge. And then start your own business. That is what you have to do if you want to become very wealthy.” – Porter Stansberry … Episode 121, Stansberry Radio
