Create, Sustain, Destroy – MGM w/ Jason Su

Here’s a thing you should know about:

Three principles that, when you’re in balance with them, create a sweet experience of life.

But when you’re out of alignment, resisting, or just flat out ignoring one or more, you’ll suddenly find yourself having the wrong experience, wishing you were anywhere else than where you currently are.

Powerful stuff.

The principles I refer to are:

Create, sustain, and destroy.

What you must know:

Creating––the energy of fresh, new ideas––is what sparks us into new periods of life, exciting projects, and a feeling of total openness to possibility.

It can be quite intoxicating.

Sustaining––the ability to keep momentum going once we’ve enjoyed that initial spark––gets ignored a lot, but you’ll find that behind every great idea that actually came to fruition, there was a person or group of people highly skilled in the art of sustaining.

Underrated and invaluable.

Destroying refers to your willingness to let go of things, whether a failed business, relationship, or triple barrel bluff––in real time, totally connected to what most needs to be done.

These are traits that almost nobody has mastered in all areas.

But the good news is, you don’t need to.

You just need to reflect on where you stand within these circles, give some attention on how you might be resisting, and map out ways to grow your ability in the ones you’re not a total natural at.
And over time, everything gets better.

Performance, relationships, happiness––all of it.

It all feels much nicer when you’ve got that balance.
