Happy Memorial Weekend!
As a free gift to you, I have customized my own Daily Perservance Tracker to be accessible to anyone else who might want to try it, either interactive online or through a downloadable PDF. Click link in bio or go to lanceallred41.com
I hope you find it helpful.
This is something I do everyday. The routine of accountability is where perseverance and grit are to be found.
It took me 7 extra years longer than the average rookie to make the NBA. That is perseverance. There is no magic wand. No cheat sheet.
It took me 7 years, following my declaration in 2009 that I wanted to be an international inspirational speaker, to finally see it come true. That is perseverance. Again, no magic wand. It is the daily choice of being accountable to the visions I chase and following the intuition that comes.
I ask myself these questions within the Daily Perseverance Tracker every night before I go to bed. I continually read, write and say my goals multiple times a day. I do the same for my values. I clarify what my intentions are for the next 90 days, 30 days and this week.
It takes 21 days to truly develop new habits and brain pathways/thought patterns, and I would love to help you establish new boundaries for yourself by giving you daily reminders to follow through on your Tracker. If you would like my help to receive the daily text reminders, you can text “DPT” to number: 71441 (DPT does not have quotation marks when you text.) Again, I hope you take the time to try this. It my gift to you. Nothing comes easy that is worth having. But I hope this helps you on your path towards your goals and ultimately gaining clarity into what your values and priorities are.
Stop trying to "fit in." Stop trying to be someone else. We aren't in high school anymore... But then again you might actually be in high school and it feels so claustrophobic. Trust me, the world has plenty of space for you and your authentic self. #mondaymotivation PC: @idahojakephotography
Flying home today from New Jersey following an amazing opportunity to speak to several groups, from visiting with deaf and hard of hearing kids and teens at the Mountain Lakes school district which is a full dual-immersion program for hearing and deaf students, where deaf kids are bussed in from 11 other counties every day. Some speak, some sign. All students are taught to work and communicate together, even in athletics. Mountain Lakes is the wealthiest county in New Jersey and is a model of giving and not scarcity. It was an honor to work and visit with the students and then later in the evening speak at the @soundstartbabies event where we had a record-setting night raising money for families of deaf children to give them all the options they need. I am grateful for this life and the path I have been given, the ups and downs, for it allows me to give back in many ways that so many others gave their time to me along my journey. #gratitude Also, I got to clear up some debate about who is better #brucespringsteen or #bonjovi
Entitlement is a vicious disease. #monday #motivation

Allow the mystic and the magic back into your life. This is not to say throw strategy, planning and accountability out the window. Dream and dream some more, and have a plan. You can't just wish. Dream, and then envision the strategy and the plan of how it is going to happen. I allowed myself to begin doing this recently and I enjoy life again like I did when I was a boy. #monday #motivationalquotes
Good to be back home #friday #nature #waterfall with Sweet Boy.
Part 2: Arrived in hotel at exactly 6 AM. Slept three hours. Then gave them a show. Then GPS on way to airport dumped and abandoned me on a dirt road in the middle of Kansas somewhere. Then because of all the rescheduling and as I drove through the night and went off grid my return tickets were not waiting for me when I checked in... but alas, we made it and I am now sitting in front of the gate.
