Sales Wolves Podcast | Episode 138 | The Winner and Quitter in You


And so each time this happens, you have a
choice. And it is the decision that you make in those
moments, which are usually moments when you’re alone, which are moments when you’re in your
thoughts. Each time you’re faced with that decision,
and you make the right one, and you do push, and you do move forward and you do keep taking
one step at a time it creates momentum. What’s up, everybody? Welcome to the Sales Wolves Podcast. As always, I’m your host, Tyler Jack Harris,
and I am a Sales Wolf. That’s right. This is the Sales Wolves Podcast, Episode
138. And today’s topic is well, I’m not going to
tell you what today’s topic is, because it’ll kind of ruin the first thing I wanted to start
with. So we’ll get to that in just a minute. In this podcast, I really want to introduce
you to two people. And these two people may be the most important
to people that you ever meet. And I would beg to say, the majority of you
listening or watching this podcast right now, you haven’t met them yet. But these two people, the interaction, the
conversation, and ultimately what you do when you meet these two will determine the outcome
of the rest of your life. And that is the winner, and the quitter in
you. The only way that you will ever meet these
people. It’s not easy. It’s difficult. It’s painful. It takes work, it takes guts, it takes determination. But the way that you meet these two, the winner
and the quitter in you is by taking yourself to the end of yourself. It’s pushing yourself harder than you have
ever pushed yourself before. Pushing yourself beyond any self imposed idea
of limitations any self imposed idea of what your potential is. It’s pushing yourself beyond what you may
right now think is possible. It is only in those moments, where you’re
faced with these two, the winner and the quitter in you. And an easy analogy is fitness and working
out. And I actually did a video about this a couple
of weeks ago. And it was after I had done an insanely difficult
run with the 32 pound vest on. It was four miles and it was the furthest
and the fastest I’ve ever ran with a 32 pound vest on and it was just excruciating. Very, very, very difficult. But it wasn’t until I got to the point where
I had passed the furthest I’ve ever been before it, passed the three mile mark, and was in
that fourth mile. And not only was in it, but was determined
in that fourth mile to do it faster than I had done any of the previous three that I
all of a sudden came face to face with this winner and quitter in me. And the dialogue between you and these two
is an internal dialogue. It’s this internal dialogue in this conversation
of will, will I choose to go with the winner or will I choose to go with the quitter in
me. Because it’s only when you’re at the breaking
point that these two pop up, that these two show up. And so in that analogy of fitness or working
out, it’s pushing your body to the absolute, absolute limit, or what you see as your current
limit, and then they show up. And then you have a decision to make. You can choose to be the winner, go with the
winner. We can choose to be the quitter, go with the
quitter. But another time that this interaction this
conversation pops up in life is when you’re going through difficulty when you’re going
through struggles when you’re going through pain. That old saying if you’re going through hell
keep going. Like if you’re going through hell right now,
if you keep pushing, and you keep pushing, and you keep forging, and moving forward,
you’ll meet the winner and the quitter in you. And in that moment, it is such a fragile,
fragile, fragile moment in time. Because man, does it sound nice and feel good
and look so appealing to just lock arms with that quitter in you, and call it a day. Throw in the towel. Take it easy. But if in that moment you choose the winner. If in that moment you say you know, maybe
for the first time in my life, maybe every time I’ve brought myself to this point, maybe
every time I’ve gotten to the breaking point of whatever it is that you’re doing, I always
quit. I always like the breaking points the stopping
point. Right? Like when you work out, like when you get
to the moment where you can’t go any further. That’s when you know, that’s when you know
when to stop. But maybe, just maybe, this first time. when you reach that breaking point, when you
reach that self imposed limit, you’ll lock arms with the winner in you. And you’ll just take one more step, you’ll
just do one more rep, or your make one more phone call, you’ll go knock on one more door,
you’ll do one more, one more, one more. And you will lock arms with the winner that
is in you. And you’ll go past that self imposed limitation. You ‘ll go past that idea of the potential
that you have, you’ll go past this barrier that in your mind, can’t be broken, can’t
be overcome. And it will unlock things inside of you that
will carry over and overflow into every single area of your life. So the importance of meeting these two people,
is once you meet them to try to meet them as often as possible. But both of them will always be present. One never goes without the other. The second the winner in you shows up, the
quitter will be right there. And it will it will subtly creep in and give
you every reason in the world why you don’t need to keep going. Man, you’ve, you’ve already worked out once
today. Man, your diets been great today. And you made 100 phone calls yesterday you
don’t need to do 100 again today. The quitter in you will always show up when
the winner does. And so each time this happens, you have a
choice. And it is the decision that you make in those
moments, which are usually moments when you’re alone, which are moments when you’re in your
thoughts. Each time you’re faced with that decision,
and you make the right one. And you do push and you do move forward, and
you do keep taking one step at a time, it creates momentum. And the key to momentum is feeding it. So if the goal is to meet these two people,
then the secondary goal is to make sure you’re meeting them on a daily basis. Make sure that you are doing something every
day, could be physically, could be mentally, could be with your relationships, it could
be with your business, it could be in any area of your life. But making sure that every single day, you
have a conversation with the quitter, and the winner in you. Because if you think about it, it makes sense,
the more opportunities you have to choose the winner, the better your life will be. And the reality is you’re never going to,
you’re not perfect. You’re never going to win every single time. But by being aware of this, and by possibly
wrapping this framework around that that circumstance with that environment gives you this awareness
to know. Oh, yeah. I’m at that moment like I’m right about there. Like I’m just about to hit that moment where
the winner and the quitter in me are going to show up. And then it makes you aware of the fact when
you quit or when you let up or when you gave up. And you’ll see the effects of that. On the other side, you become aware of those
moments when Oh man, I’m right at I’m getting close to my breaking point like I’m almost
there. You keep pushing and you hit it and then all
sudden that winner and quitter and you show up. And you will become incredibly aware of the
moments when you choose the winner. And how like what what does that what does
that look like? Well, it’s the most incredible feeling in
the world. Like when you reach your limit, and then you
just blow through it and do more than you’ve ever done before. You feel you feel invincible, you feel unstoppable,
you feel like there’s nothing that you can’t do. And that momentum that feeling from in that
moment from in that interaction with the winner and quitter in you and choosing the winner
will carry over into the other areas of your life that day, that week, that month. But by continually every day seeking opportunities
to push yourself that far so that that interaction exists, gives you the opportunity to build
upon it, and build upon it and build upon it. So in the example I used with that run, the
day before I had ran three miles with that 32 pound vest on and that was the first time
I’d ever done that. So when I went out the next day I ran four. It’s easy to get discouraged. Because just being completely transparent
during that run, like towards the end of it, in my mind and the thoughtl the thought went
through me that, “Crap. This is now the furthest I’ve gone.” Which that doesn’t make sense, right? Like I should have been like, Wow, this is
amazing. This is the furthest I’ve gone. That’s the winner. But the quitter in me said, “Crap. Now this is the furthest I’ve gone.” That means next time, I’m going to have to
do more. And that was really freaking difficult, like
that was really, really painful. And now in order to meet the winner and quitter
and me next time, it’s going to be beyond four miles. It’s going to be at four and a half, it’s
going to be at five miles, or it’s going to be at a faster pace through those four miles. But unless I do that the next time unless
I run faster, unless I run further unless I go harder, the winner and quitter won’t
show up. And that’s the beauty behind this framework
to control your life is that it will constantly force you to level up in whatever area of
your life you’re seeking to live at the highest level. Because the only time you will meet the winner
and quitter in you is when you’ve gone further than you’ve ever gone before. But the second that you go further than you’ve
ever gone before, the next time it requires you to go further. And the next time it requires you to go a
little further. And the next time it requires you to go a
little bit further. And what you realize in that process is that
this idea of potential just simply doesn’t exist. That any self imposed potential, any idea
of potential that you have, of what you’re capable of, is a lie. Because you have that winner inside of you,
it doesn’t pop up out of nowhere, doesn’t come from left field, it comes from within
you. So it’s there all along. And when you have that conversation when you
meet that winner and quitter in you, it gives you the opportunity again, to say oh yeah,
there’s more left, I’ve got more in the tank, there’s more possibilities. And you’re capable of so much more than you
realize. Your potential is infinite. And thus, I believe it doesn’t actually exist. Because the idea of potential is a limitation. But the idea of having infinite potential
and that each and every day, I will just choose to go further and harder than I’ve ever gone. That’s the key to life. And the key to your success and the key to
going all in on your life. And so guys, the challenge from this, this
episode is number one, if you haven’t, then as quickly as possible, get introduced to
these two people go out and do something. You know, physically is it’s one of the easiest
ways to make this conversation appear. But it could be in any area of your life. Push yourself harder and further than you’ve
ever gone so that you can meet the winner and the quitter in you. And make a decision at that point. Who do you want to be? Do you want to be the quitter or do you want
to be the winner? Which do you want to allow take over your
life and become the narrative of your story? That’s it guys. This is Episode 138 of the Sales Wolves Podcast. As always, I’m your host Tyler Jack Harris
and I am a Sales Wolf.
