The past is..

 The past is..


Good afternoon great people.

We all know one of the worst things one can do to another is hold their past over their head. There's no good that can come from such practices. You hate when people do that don't you?

I thought so.

Though this is a familiar topic, let's look at it from another angle. Most apply this principle to vindicate themselves from past indiscretions. Cool, I totally understand. We've all been there.

Want to know what I've found?

People don't want you to bring up their negative past, but they'll live off of their past success FOREVER if they could!

Follow the logic.

You don't want anyone bringing up old stuff, but you're still talking about the spelling bee you won in the third grade?

What about that makes sense?

You may have been an all star athlete, a model, great businessman, have 382 degrees, or achieved many levels of success.

Great. Proud of you.

What have you done lately though?

Are you winning NOW?

No really, stop reading your press clippings and answer the question.

ARE YOU WINNING NOW?

I think you know the answer.

Past success is just that, PAST success. It's been said" If what you did yesterday looks big to you, you're not growing." Let's briefly enjoy our accomplishments and move on to planning the next.

You can do it..

You have to..

The past is gone...

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…
