“Late night grind, gratitude & growth.
I’ll share a little philosophy with you guys that’s helped me achieve some success over the years.
When it comes to hard work and things I’m passionate about – years ago, I stopped saying “I have to” and started saying “I get to”.
Big psychological shift on how you approach the daily grind of shit we gotta get done ☑️
I “get to” train hard and push myself to the breaking point.
I “get to” get my ass kicked and come back stronger.
I “get to” be the hardest worker in the fucking room.
Because when you “get to” do the things you love – it’s a privilege.
Try switching “have to” to “get to” and start to feel that grind, gratitude & growth.
I’ll see you there.” The Rock shared.
Known for his ‘rise and grind’ attitude, “The Rock” believes this psychological shift helped him break through barriers that were inhibiting gratitude and growth. As one of the hardest-working men in the film and fitness industry, Johnson always likes to challenge himself and his physical limitations.
