CHOICES MATTER, HAVING DISCIPLINE TO MAKE CHOICES MATTERS MORE
Everyone must make various choices every day. But there are those people who choose not to make choices. One of Jas Mathur’s biggest lessons in life is that hope is a choice. Making permanent change is a choice. Finding new paths and refusing to live in lies is a choice. Living without limits is a choice. For Jas, not making good choices is unacceptable in any aspect of his life and those around him.
People often make choices to put themselves in negative situations, and they can make choices to get themselves right out. It takes true discipline to make the right choices and live in the present. Overcoming, conquering, and creating a new set of beliefs and behaviors all come from the choices one makes.
Knowing this, we should always be aware of the possible choices and choose to change. But most important, change before it’s too late. Jas believes that many people play the blame game in their own minds. However, he in his own life, instead of pointing the finger, he plans, he takes action, and he pressed forward. Instead of waiting for life to happen to us, we should make ourselves be what’s happening. Moving forward and deliberately creating change starts at the level of our thinking, at the prompting of our own choices.
The Choice That Changed Everything
Jas has always been a hustler. As a teenager, he began by publishing backstage news in AOL and mIRC chat rooms. He used this experience to create his own message board-like websites and in less than a year, they became some of the most frequently visited wrestling news websites in the world. He sold his network of sites to a media conglomerate at 16 years of age and founded a series of successful companies in various industries such as satellite TV, digital surveillance, online dating, online gambling and internet advertising. Jas started importing products from China at age 19 and was producing over $50 million per year in revenue in the consumer electronics, digital security, and surveillance industries by his mid- twenties. What started as an online business, expanded into brick and mortar stores with retail, wholesale and distribution of over 2,500 SKUs.
Fortunately for Jas, his determination and discipline for life brought a true awakening for him in his early 20s. Jas realized that although he was successful as entrepreneur that all the business success in the world would not mean anything if he were not able to be physically and mentally healthy enough to enjoy life.
Jas made a choice that brought significant impact to millions of people. When he was 450 pounds, with a 68-inch waist, living at death’s door every day, he made a choice to turn things around and never look back.
Because of Jas’ choices, others have benefited with untold story after story, year after year. Unlike the common pitfalls of blame shifting so many in our society adopt, Jas has chosen to take ownership of his choices, and then make decisions that he’s proud to own. By shifting his mindset to constantly focus on what’s best for his life and for those around him, his choices in life have become an inspiration to others. By removing limits from his own life, he’s allowed others to feel free to do the same, especially his family, friends and colleagues.
A Limitless Life is Up to You
Limitless is a way of life for Jas not just a word in his vocabulary. So many of us are waiting for a shift to happen in our lives before we do anything, when the irony is that life is waiting for us to make the shift we need to make. Jas was able to realize at one of his lowest moments that he can make choices to change instead of continuing to swim in the pool of mental, physical and emotional despair and inaction.
Jas had been telling himself an old, tired story: a story about why he wasn’t good enough, a story about what he didn’t deserve, a story about his own failure. But he changed the story that he told himself, changed the internal narrative, and thus put himself in a new state of mind and equipped himself with a new strategy to help confirm his new state of mind and story.
The question for you is whether you’re willing to continue telling yourself the same story that’s kept you hostage, or create a new and more true story about who you are, why you exist, what you are made to do, and so on. You are in control of that narrative, and no one else is. Choices matter. The discipline to actually make the choices matters even more.
Like Jas, you have nothing standing in between yourself and the true story about who you are and who you are meant to be. The only question is whether or not you will embrace it, believe it, and take action with it.
The Choice to Become Limitless
For Jas, the future is truly limitless. His current trademarked products and projects include, NZT-48, Divatrim, Amarose, Xanquil, SmartSurf, Limitless Pay and continued growth and innovation in Fintech (a financial and technology crossover space), in order to better serve companies that use technology to provide financial services to businesses or consumers.
His up-and-coming venture is Amarose, which is a partnership with entrepreneur and television personality Amanda Saccomanno. Amarose, which will be launched this Summer, is a line of beauty, skincare and personal care products.
Living limitless is something that Jas cares deeply about and something he teaches to his followers. The limitless mindset realizes that most of the limits we feel in life are actually self-imposed, and usually without any significant foundation in reality. The lies that we surround ourselves with typically have no substance to them, but we use them as a false means of protection and limitation and guarding ourselves from trying anything that might make us fail.
So many people say they want success, but what people really want is to feel safe, to not try, to do what they’ve always done. A limitless life rejects this and refuses to put boundaries on itself that it does not have to put there.
What will you choose? Choices matter. The self-discipline to actually make the RIGHT CHOICES matters even more.
