Get Crystal Clarity
“I refuse to settle for anything less than crystal clarity, which means I am constantly questioning myself, my actions, my motives, and my CODE.”
- Jared Yellin
People are often surprised when I say I am not really that well read…
I read/listen to maybe a few books a year (always nonfiction) and then I spend every waking minute reading myself and other people.
Don’t get me wrong...
I love books...
I love learning on my own terms…
I love exposing myself to new perspectives…
But for me, I get exponentially more out of deep introspection and public analysis than I do from words on a piece of paper.
And I bring this up for a very important reason…
Don’t do anything simply because other people are passing judgment on what’s needed/expected to create the life you desire.
“Leaders are readers.”
I don’t disagree with this statement, but for me it does not work and if I tried to abide by this concept I would not get what I need to be the man, dad, leader, entrepreneur, etc. that I know I am meant to be.
Now, you might think focusing on reading is silly, but how you do one thing is how you do all things which means if you are only reading because you think you are “supposed to,” then what you are not doing is questioning yourself, your actions, your motives, and your CODE.
Because you can replace reading with any of these…
Managing your finances
Choosing a career
Marketing your business
Having a family
Picking a home
Selecting your geographics
Following every rule
Making health decisions
And the list goes on and on and on…
In my opinion, being an independent thinker is a requirement for being a leader, entrepreneur, and most importantly a happy human.
Please read this again…
Being an independent thinker is a requirement of being a happy human.
I’ve found that people who are suffering from the dreaded challenge of UNHAPPINESS feel a sense of obligation to do something that DOES NOT align with their actions, motives, and CODE.
And once again - reading might seem like a silly example, but the moment that you start doing ANYTHING because of something other than what you define as RIGHT, is the moment you begin living a compromised life.
And you might not care...but I do...and I encourage you to as well.
When you can make decisions on your terms based on your insatiable desire to question yourself, your actions, your motive, and your CODE with the goal of reaching the point of crystal clarity you are able to live a congruent life where your desires, actions and decisions are aligned.
Whether you want to be an entrepreneur OR not - make the decisions for yourself.
Whether you want to get married OR not - make the decision for yourself.
Whether you want to wear a mask OR not - make the decision for yourself.
Whether you want to run a FB ad for your small business OR not - make the decision for yourself.
And the scenarios go on and on and on…
The reason I feel peace at almost all times of the day is because I make decisions that align with ME without feeling the need to do something simply because I am “supposed to,” and/or from external pressures.
And for me, this discovery did NOT come from reading a book...
I refuse to settle for anything less than crystal clarity which means I am constantly questioning myself, my actions, my motives, and my CODE.
I hope you are empowered to step into a place of FREEDOM where you are making decisions on your own terms based on your CODE and what you want to get out of our life.
I am here for you if you are faced with any cynics, critics, or doubters - because they WILL show up - but what WILL ALSO show up is what you ultimately desire…
And the only person who knows what they ultimately desire is….YOU!
