How to Be an A Student thumbnail

Hello my student of life! Today I’m going to teach you how to become an A student.

Everyday I run 6 miles on this treadmill and I’ve learned that the hardest part is getting started. That’s the case with life; the hardest part of anything is making the decision and getting started. That’s why you just have to jump right in!

A lot of people wait for motivation to come to them, but you actually have to act first and then the motivation comes as you continue to act. If you keep putting something off long enough, it begins to deplete & suck your energy.

I run first thing in the morning. A, because it feels better to my body, but B because if I put it off all day it would drain me, weigh heavy on me, it would be one more thing I have to do that day so if you start right away, if you have the idea or the inspiration for something, all you have to do is start. Don’t think about the whole picture, I don’t think about the whole long run before I start, I just start.

I began running on this treadmill instead of outside about a year ago because the property that I am manifesting right now is at the top of the mountain and there’s nowhere to run outside so I’m preparing by running on the treadmill, which I will do in that property. So send me good vibes and you’ll be coming to a retreat on that property soon!

There are certain things you can do to give yourself energy; whether it’s physical energy, mental energy, or spiritual energy and it’s important to draw from all of these sources when you’re achieving a goal because no one does anything alone, not one person hasn’t had help.

Look at this! I’m already 25% done with my run, that’s a quarter of a dollar. For my $10 million dollar property, I’ve already raised $2.5 million and the hardest part is done! If you want to lose 20 pounds, you’ve already lost 5 right in that first part, the hardest part, the first quarter. Sometimes the key is not to stare at the clock. Be present and be forward thinking and feel the energy moving through your body right now!

Here I am at 33. 33 is my numerology path, it’s the number of my soul, the vibration that I have, it’s my favorite number. It’s funny how many times throughout a day I will look at a clock, or anything that displays numbers, and it’s at 33. I don’t look at the clock that often. That’s a Divine sign and it’s symbolic of what I’m attracting and who I am. What are your signs? What messages do you get that there is a force greater than you? Having faith in a deep connection with that force is essential to being an A student!

Look at this, I’m two-thirds done, but now that I have a D instead of an F, I’m at least on the map.

How about that, I’m at 45 minutes, that’s a C, 75%. I ran all this way? I don’t want to stop at average! All I need to do is go 5 more minutes for an A-. Just 5 more!

I’m heading up on the 5-mile mark, one more mile to go! There’s one thing I didn’t tell you. A lot of people would be happy to be A students, but if you want to be an A+ student you gotta go that extra mile, so here I go!

Alright, I’m coming in for the landing. 10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1! Yes, I did it! That wasn’t so bad, now that it’s over.

That’s the thing, a lot of times you will start something and you will run into obstacles that you feel are too big for you to handle, but when you have that base behind you it gives you the momentum because that would all be a waste if you didn’t carry on and pursue your dream and figure out ways to overcome obstacles. You have a Divine purpose, you are meant to achieve everything you want in life and I support you to be an A student!
