Quitters never...

Quitters never...







Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.


We've all heard the age old adage "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." With that said, why do we expect everything to be easy? The only easy thing to do is QUIT. If you run into a challenge, QUIT! If something doesn't go your way, QUIT! If you don't like an associate's perfume, QUIT! Easy right?

The thing is, easy doesn't get you to your goals.

If success were easy, everybody would be successful. 

If you look at the "fine print" with anything worth having, you'll find the words "hard work" in there somewhere. Fact is, nothing worth keeping comes easy. The only thing that successful people have done that you haven't is stuck with it. They've overcome more obstacles than you have. EVERYONE has challenges and obstacles. EVERYONE has distractions, some people just don't get distracted.

A friend who knows me well asked me, "Do you ever feel like quitting?!" To their surprise, I replied "Every damn day!" Then I continued, "those are just feelings. It's okay to feel like quitting, but if you're a winner you just cant."  Truthfully, I've felt like quitting a lot of things a lot, but I have the spirit of a champion and it will not allow me to do so. I think if you look deep into your soul, you have the same spirit. We cannot allow what we want now prevent us from getting what we want most. 

As Napoleon Hill says, the defeat is temporary. Are you going to let a TEMPORARY setback keep you from getting your PERMANENT SUCCESS? 

I didn't think so. Let's get to work..

"Winners never quit and quitters never win."-Vince Lombardi

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…
