What are you willing to give up?

What are you willing to give up?



Change.

What a powerful yet elusive concept.

The idea that things could be better keeps us going during the darkest of hours. The thought that things could be different. Our current problems could disappear. The thought that our dreams can be realized. The thought that everything will be, and is, okay.

Change.

What a powerful yet elusive concept.

If we overcome our challenges, change will provide a vehicle to achieve our dreams. Change will let us spend more time doing what we WANT to, rather than spend time on what we HAVE to. Change will yield us being the best us we can be. Our president was elected on the concept of change.

Change.

What a powerful yet elusive concept.

A lot of people TALK about change. Everyday will be a victory. Every week will be better than the last. Every year will be their year from here on out.

I genuinely hope they're right. I wish the best for everybody because "A rising tide raises all ships." Unfortunately, most won't experience the change they speak of. Most won't inconvenience themselves. Most won't stick with their changes long enough to benefit. Most won't speak what they want, they'll continue speaking what they have.

That won't be you though. You're reading this for a reason.

While you're here, I have one question to ask you. What are you willing to give up?

Yes, I said give up. In order to get the change you REALLY want, you're going to have to give up something. You may have to give up your TV time. You may have to give up a couple of your weekly outings with your friends. You may have to miss the big sporting event coming up. You just might have to give up something you hold dearly to get the change that you want. Nothing is free, including change. If you aren't willing to give up something, you don't want change. So again, I ask you...

What are you willing to give up?

Change.

What a powerful concept.

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…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
