In this episode, Brendan Myers walks us through the three levels to life. He shares with us the different levels of where we possibly are in our own journeys of finding that comfortable place or that wanted transformation. Find inspiration here as you reassess where you are between great and legendary.

Three Tiers To Life!
What Level Are You At?
I’m in my new home. All I can say is I am so thankful for the people that are around me, that support me, but also you, the audience, whoever you are. I want to say thank you. I hope you’re having an incredible day. I hope that you are smashing through life and that your goals are becoming realities. Because here on the CreatU Experience with CreateU and everything that we’re doing, that’s what we want from you. We want you to level up. We want you to transform and ignite your breakthrough and bring your vision to life every single day. I’m sending my blessings to you as I move into my new home. I’m with new people and we’re starting Inside The Mind, the new series and the new nutritional products are coming out, the Pre-Workouts and things like that at CreateUNutrition.com.
I’m thankful. My discipline and my hard work are never going to stop because it’s ingrained in me. I want too much for this world and my vision is way too big for it to stop. It’s a little inspiration right there. Hopefully, that’s stung you a little bit on the ass and gets you going. What I want to talk about is the three tiers to life. This may be something that you’ve heard before. Maybe you want nothing to do with or whatever you feel or whatever you think about it. I want you to keep an open mind and be open to possibilities, not only for yourself but for the people around you. Maybe this could help a friend in need or maybe they’re not in need at all and they need to take it to the next level or your family or co-worker.
Baseline Comfortability Level
Three tiers to life. This is how I organize everything in my own life and who I work with. This comes from a business perspective and also a relationship perspective. Remember relationship, bridges the gap for business so that you can be successful in those regards. Number one is the baseline mindset or the baseline comfortability level in your life. These are a lot of people that they don’t feel like a lot of things are possible and they’re content with where they are. They’re okay with being at that point for a long time. There’s no problem with that. The majority of the world is in this situation where they have the ceilings in their lives and situations. If I talked to this girl or this guy, it’s not going to be a good result.
There’s a lot of negativity there and there’s a lot of self-work that needs to be done in many areas. At the same time, many people that are at that baseline level have done the work and they just choose to be content in that area of their life long-term, which is completely fun. Two are being great. You could say being good, whatever. They’re too close in the same, but being great, there are people that like to push but only to a certain point. There’s a difference between someone great and someone legendary. You look at Michael Jordan and then you look at other players that are amazing below him. You could even say Derrick Rose or other people that are good and great players, but they were never that transformational player. The person that just completely transformed people around them or the game or X, Y and Z. I represent the great in a way that hopefully, you can understand.
It doesn’t mean that you don’t work hard. It doesn’t mean that you don’t want to be the best. It means that you get to a certain point and you become content with that. Let’s say you could be training in the gym or on the basketball court six days a week or seven days a week. Even two of those days could be slow motions with one arm. It can be very simple, low impact, not even affecting you, but then you have other people that are doing it seven days a week nonstop. They’re studying the game on the computer, studying the game and talking to coaches, studying the game and asking questions, wanting to be the best and never stops. There’s a different level of discipline when it comes to that.
There’s no problem with that. There’s no problem with someone wanting to be great or good at something. This is how I look at the tiers. They’re a little bit different. Third, the last and final tier is the transformational tier. There are very few people in this world that ever reached this. I say very few. I’m talking about probably thousands of people because there are billions of people in this world. I put myself in this category and I hope that you one day put yourself in this category as well. Maybe you’d put yourself in that category now. It doesn’t have an age limit. It’s not about the experience level. It has nothing to do with that. It’s about being transformational. Tier three is all about pushing, no matter what.
Your word is your world. You say something and you do it. If you don’t do it, you take responsibility for it. You keep on working towards it and you never stop. You don’t stop because content is not even in your nature. At a certain point, yes. I’ll give you another example. When Kobe Bryant walked away from the game at a certain point because he knew it was his time, “This is the end,” but he was transformational. He was legendary. There’s not many Kobe Bryant’s to ever walk the Earth. That’s the truth. You look at LeBron James and Michael Jordan. We can go over to football. You could look at Emmitt Smith and Tom Brady, you can look at certain people from every sport.Allow time to open up the doors for your true path and your true journey. Click To Tweet
Even rappers. You look at Eminem and Lil Wayne. You look at people that have never stopped and their discipline is on a whole different level. Yes, in certain areas, they could slack off, but they choose to slack off because they don’t want it. That’s where I look at these tiers. What do you want? Where do you want to be and how much are you willing? Tier one is all about being baseline and your content, and that’s completely fine. There’s nothing wrong with that. If you are baseline, you don’t want to be baseline, then there’s a problem. If you lack discipline, then truly ask yourself, how badly do you want it? If you’ve ever been in a relationship with someone that you love and maybe they don’t want it, it’s not right for them at the moment. It’s that type of want.
You’ll do anything in your power to make that relationship happen. This also pushes into tier two, being great. You may not be content, you may work hard and you want to push, but there’s a certain point where you just slack off. I have enough here at this point. That is okay. There’s nothing wrong with that, but what do you truly want and how much are you willing to work? If you become an MVP once in your league, if you’re playing high school basketball or high school goal for badminton, it doesn’t matter. Do you want to become MVP again? Are you content with that one MVP? That’s the difference between being great, transformational and legendary. Transformational, you want to win MVP every single year because you hold yourself to a higher standard than anyone around you and that’s okay as well. Which tier are you? Where are you going in your life?
I would love to know what you have to say in a review. Send a message to me on Instagram. Send a message on @CreateU wherever you go. I want to remind you, it’s okay whatever tear you are. It’s okay where you are currently in your life. It’s okay if you’re hurting. It’s okay if you’re happy. It’s okay if you got a raise and your friend didn’t get a raise. It’s okay if your friend is sick and you can’t be there for them for one day. Sometimes we overthink and we look at all of our situations this and that, and we blame ourselves because at that moment it’s not possible. It can’t happen. You got to be patient. If a friend that’s in need or you, that’s a need or the heartbreak, all of this encompasses time. Allow time to open up the doors for your true path and your true journey. It starts with you. CreateU now, ignite your breakthrough, bring your vision to life. I hope this QuickTime Friday ignited you a little bit.
