People are worried about disasters when they should be worried about trivial things.
The chances are slim that you are going to be hit by an unexpected disaster. For example, the odds of dying because of accidents, violence or wars is incredibly low.
Rather, your repeated actions are going to make or break you.
You must drink alcohol 20-40 years straight to get cirrhosis.
You must repeatedly eat more calories than you burn to get fat.
You learn how to read, write, drive a car, and many other skills by repetition.
Bodybuilding is repetition. You do reps of lifting weights or reps of bodyweight exercises to build muscle.
Repeating the same ads enables companies to sell their products.
Repetition is used for propaganda. Hitler’s propaganda manager Goebbels said, “If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it.”
You get addicted to drugs by using them repeatedly.
Jerry Seinfeld had a principle of “don’t break the chain” where he checked the calendar for every day he worked. Now, he’s worth 700 millon$.
Success is not an event. It’s a process. It is the result of repeated action.
Defeat is not an event either. It’s a process. It is the result of repeated action or inaction.
You can often reliably predict a person’s future by observing what he/she does within a 24-hour time frame.
Watch what you repeatedly do. Because it’s either going to make you or break you.
