The Traitor Within

Men: You have to kill the enemy that is trying to destroy your Life.

You ever wonder why you keep F**king up in certain areas of your life?

Or you keep taking the easy way out and avoiding the hard shit you know that you need to do?

~~> Masturbation over intimacy with your wife
~~> Turn on the game rather than spend time with your kids.
~~> Go through the drive-thru rather than to the gym

It’s called Self-Sabotage.

Another way to put it bluntly, is there is a little Bitch that lives inside of each and every one of you.

And this side of you is literally destroying most of the things you tell yourself you want.

Basically, it’s like there’s a Villian living in your Castle and you’re not doing anything about it.

Ok, now some good news.

This part of you that keeps taking the easy way out, of that f**king things up is not the real you.

This is that’ False self” you’ve heard me talk about before.

The bible calls this our Flesh.

We all got it.

And I repeat, it’s not the real you and it doesn’t mean you’re broken.

It means your normal.

Check this out. I forgot this was in the Bible it has been so long, but this hits hard:

“What I don’t understand about myself is that I decide one way, but then I act another, doing things I absolutely despise. So if I can’t be trusted to figure out what is best for myself and then do it, it becomes obvious that God’s command is necessary.”

My notes:
1. Acknowledge the Realness
Simply being Honest & Real is the beginning to ALL useful change
2. Surrender: another necessary component to change

“But I need something more! For if I know the law but still can’t keep it, and if the power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help!! realize that I don’t have what it takes.

I can will it, but I can’t do it. I decide to do good, but I don’t really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don’t result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time.”

Takeaway 1: Holy Shit this is good.

So good and so Real…this is literally the beginning of the framework to ‘having it all’ and making REAL changes in your life / business.

You’ve probably heard me talk about this before, but if not: Brutal, Real and Raw Honesty is where all change emanates from, “the TRUTH will set you free”

Look, we are all a bit jacked up inside

Self-Sabotage is a part of life

UNTIL

Then we discover and acknowledge the enemy within (aka: Flesh/Bitch Self)

Btw: I gave my little Bitch a name, I call him Bitch Brant. And I’ve learned when that little Bitch shows up (which i’ll admit, is pretty frequently). Matter of fact, I’ve had to crucify him a few times, but he keeps coming back, so I have to keep battling every day. As will you.

BUT once we acknowledge and recognize this false self/Bitch Self inside, we are setting ourselves up for change (Aka: Results)

Scripture continues:
“It happens so regularly that it’s predictable. The moment I decide to do good, sin is there to trip me up. I truly delight in God’s commands, but it’s pretty obvious that not all of me joins in that delight. Parts of me covertly rebel, and just when I least expect it, they take charge.

I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn’t that the real question? The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does.”

WOW….ok, once Again: Real, Raw Vulnerability (Truth)

Men see vulnerability as weakness but it is actually Superpower…

WHEN used the right way

This brings us back to the Code.

Be Real

Get RAW

Stay Relevant

Create Big Ass Results

Once you Begin to live by the code and allow Truth into your life, you will open a door to a whole new world and can now begin to be the HERO again and take captive of the enemy by being real, and taking captive of your thought, followed my actions.

Now Final Thoughts

~~> You’re not F**ked up. You are Normal

~~~~~~>Stop Beating yourself up

~~> Unconditional Love Starts with you

~~~~~> *if you can’t receive it, you can’t give it

Be Real about what you want and the struggles you feel inside

ASK For Help
God
Self
Others
