Don’t Do What You Love, Learn to Love What You Do

Have you ever wondered what separates people who love what they do & are absolutely killing it from those who despise their job & struggle?

It’s passion. Passion is what gives human beings purpose & is ultimately the defining factor between those who succeed & those who don’t.

Unfortunately this belief system is subjective, fundamentally flawed and completely inaccurate.

Winners win not because they do what they love, but because they learn to love what they do.

And it all starts with understanding the power of your mind. In episode 12 Chris, shares a powerful, bone chilling story of what he was able to accomplish in 2 years by going full throttle & how he kept going until literally he woke up in the hospital, not knowing how he got there, being rushed to receive multiple emergency blood transfusions, laying on a hospital gurney in his own urine and feces.
