Do as you tell.....

If there's one thing everybody hates, it's a person who talks the talk without "walking the walk."

Are we in agreement here?

It's common knowledge that one shouldn't tell someone to do something that they won't do. That's Credibility......Out.Of.The.Window.

There was once a great teacher, a grandmother & grand child. The grandmother asked the great teacher to tell her grandson to refrain from eating sugar. The teacher responded "Come back in the month." The grandmother did as instructed & returned in a month's time. The teacher politely asked the child to stop eating sugar, the child agreed. All was well.

The grandmother was grateful for the teacher's counsel but politely asked why he made her wait a month. The teacher replied "I cannot tell someone to stop doing something I'm doing. I had to quit eating sugar before I told him to."

That's one helluva example. Do before you tell, act before you preach, and do AS you tell...

Let's get to work.

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.

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
