Expectations...

I heard something that made me completely and utterly sick.

Someone called their selves giving advice and said one of the worst word combinations I've EVER heard. 

It went a little something like this:

"If you don't expect anything, you can't be let down"

What?

What kind of sense does that make?

Be careful who you take advice from. 

It doesn't make sense to take advice from people who aren't where you want to be, but that's a whole blog by itself.

Back to the guts.

If you don't expect anything, you can't get let down?

Really?

Fact of the matter is, if you don't expect anything, you won't get anything!

If you don't have clear expectations of life, people, and or situations, they will treat you ANY way THEY want!

Would you rather control how you're treated? Or leave it up to life, people, and circumstance?

Thought so.

Expect the best!

Expect GOOD things to happen to you!
Expect people to treat you well!
Expect to win!

Most battles are fought in the mind before the flesh. 

Win with expectation!

Meek out...

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?

"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

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…
