Designing the life you want isn’t easy. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. It takes determination, dedication, and grit.
You MUST be determined. Determination gets you started on the path to designing the life you want. If you’re not determined to make a change, then that change will never come.
Dedication keeps you on the path when things get rough. For most people, motivation burns bright and hot at first, then quickly fades. Dedication to designing your life means you re-light that motivation every time it burns out.
Grit is that extra level of tenacity that pushes you through the end. Grit keeps you on the path towards the life you want NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. Three, five, even ten years down the line, grit makes sure that you end up living the life you want.
These words are all great, but they’re just words. Reading them won’t give you determination, dedication, or grit. Sometimes it’s easy to get lost in the sea of motivational blog content. You can spend hours reading, thinking, wishing, feeling good, then ultimately going nowhere. There’s a disconnect between reading about how to build the life you want and actually doing it.
The INDUSTRY fills that disconnect.
Determination. We set up our students with the tools they need to start building the path. We lay a thick foundation that stays strong throughout the process. Whenever we encounter a setback, we can always rely on our determination to pull us through.
Dedication. It’s easy to ride the initial spark of motivation, but your light WILL burn out. It’s happened to you, it’s happened to me, it’s happened to everyone. The INDUSTRY provides each student with a support network that helps them ignite that light time after time, even long after the program has ended.
Grit. I’m not going to lie: you can’t teach grit. Grit is something that’s earned, not something that’s learned. For each hour spent in The INDUSTRY’s programs, our students are one step closer to developing the thick hides they need to survive in our world. Our program isn't easy, but neither is designing the life you want.
Are you ready to start designing?
