The First Rule: Know Why You Are Here


The Rules of the X Project

There are 20 total rules. You will quickly notice that every rule is numbered as the 1st rule. This is because if you give someone a list of rules they will view #1 as the most important and all the others just follow behind it. Most people will lose interest in them by 3 or 4. So every rule we have is the 1st rule because they are all equally important. If you are given a list of things to do to accomplish a goal and you skip even a single step the whole thing can fall apart. Same goes for our rules. They will be released one at a time, but you could read them all in an order and find that each one is just as important as the next.


Know Why You are Here


You matter. You have to know that. If you do not recognize that you matter you will never have, you will never be, you will never do, you will never experience life that way that you were supposed to experience life.

You are powerful beyond measure.


You may never have a point in your life where someone looks you right in your eyes, sees through you and into your soul and tells you that you matter and that you are powerful beyond measure. But I am here to tell you that now, because its true and you have to embrace it.


If you don’t know that not only do you matter but you are also powerful beyond measure, you will not live up to your full potential. No one can do what you do. No one can dream what you dream. No one can love the way that you love. No one can produce what you produce. You are powerful.


When you know within yourself what your purpose is, what it is that you are supposed to do, you feel that responsibility to manifest our greatness every day. You can feel it in your gut and when you are living your life below your potential you cannot live comfortable anymore. You wont be comfortable without stretching, growing and challenging yourself. It isn’t only possible for you to have your dreams, but it is necessary. It is necessary to have your dreams and your purpose in order to live your life to the fullest. It is necessary that you chase it, that you work on it, that you make it yours. You cannot settle for anything less than your purpose and that’s what makes you do stuff.


So many people live their lives every day without purpose or dreams and they are miserable. They complain about their jobs and let the whole world know how miserable they are but they never do anything about it.


Know your purpose. Know your “Why”.


What is it that you want? What are you fighting for? What are you working for? Why would you skip that workout or why would you give it your all? Why did you cheat on that meal or why would you stick to your diet? Why didn’t you do more? Why didn’t you try harder? Why did you do that one last rep? Why did you stay up one more hour? Why did you make one more phone call? Why did you read one more chapter?


If you don’t know what it is that you showed up to do, if you do not know why you are here, I encourage you to find out what your purpose is here. What is the meaning of your life?


That question stops a lot of people from being successful. They have too many barriers to overcome before they reach success that they never get there.

Its either because they cant see it, or at some point they thought they saw it and then they let someone talk them out of seeing it.


It is a natural inclination to put ourselves down and limit ourselves. It’s because we live in a negative world driven by a negative consciousness. It is overwhelming how many people have a sense of hopelessness and anxiety towards life. It’s time to start protecting yourself. If you are not going to program yourself then you will be programmed by the thoughts you choose not to control and the people you surround yourself with. Most people are living their lives in quiet desperation, most are going through life running scared and refusing to accept it.


The question is why do most people live their lives never pursuing their dreams? Never trying to do more or be more even when they know they are capable of doing it? The reason that we don’t even explore the possibility of what to do is because subconsciously we don’t believe that it can happen for us and we don’t believe we deserve it.


Or do you believe somewhere in the back of your mind and in your heart that there is some other great work for you to do? That there is something more that this life has for you? That is the reason why you are here. Because we are destined to be more.


How much time do you spend working on you? How much time do you spend every day working on your dream? How many books have you read in the past 90 days? In the past year what kind of new skill or knowledge have you acquired? What kind of investment have you made in yourself?


Fear kill dreams. Fear kills hope. Fear puts people in the hospital. Fear can age you. Fear can hold you back from doing something that you know within yourself that you are capable of doing because it will literally paralyze you.


Its time to find your purpose and start telling yourself that you can have this, you can do this, you can make this happen. When you feel that pain and you feel that fear you have to tell yourself that its alright, you can handle this, you just haven’t figure it out yet. You have your purpose, this is your dream and this struggle is just the tuition you have to pay for what you don’t know yet. You can do this, you will get better. You will learn from this challenge and you will grow. Better yourself. Work hard. Chase down your dreams. Learn the things you need to learn. Change the way you see yourself and start to attend to the personal details that you need to improve. No one can do a better job of seizing your dreams than you can.


You are powerful beyond measure. You are meant for great things. You can do anything. Now is the time to give it your all and seize everything you have ever dreamed of.
