Small Successes


Small Successes 


If you know me, I mean REALLY know me, you know I'm an overachiever.

I want to win, flat out.. plain and simple.

While this trait can be a blessing it can also be a curse to your psyche.

Things NEVER happen fast enough for an overachiever.

An overachiever wants to be the best at EVERYTHING right now! Thing is, success doesn't work like that. You've got to fail your way to your destination.

We all know and have heard that, but we still don't understand it. Let's take it one step further.

FAILURE IS SUCCESS!

What you talking about Meek?

Follow the thought process...

What stops the average person from attaining their goal?

-Some don't have a goal
-Some are too lazy to go after their goals ( if they have one)
-Some are just scared
-or their priorities are jacked up

So if you've failed a little bit, cheer yourself on. You took the a major step towards success! You worked!

 Yes, you may not have gotten the results that you wanted. You may be a little out of your comfort zone. You may even be a little distraught. HOWEVER! You do have a goal! You have enough ambition to chase it! In addition, you've overcome your fears! Kudos for having goals as a priority when the common folks' goals are tennis shoes and Xbox games. These things alone set you apart from the majority who will settle for mediocre lives and a meager existence folk will try to justify as the American dream. Hats off to you!

Chances are, the failure you see has many small successes attached to it! Look at what you've learned! See who you've impacted! Look at the foundation you've built!

Don't look at your failures to see failure, look at your failures to see the small successes. They'll lead to the big ones in the NEAR future...

Keep the hammer down and the faith up.

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?
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

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
