“Meek, What do you think is the biggest reason people fail?”

I've often been asked, “Meek, What do you think is the biggest reason people fail?” 

I can easily answer this question with one word…inaction. 

It doesn't matter if it's caused by fear, laziness, circumstance, or any other excuse people can come up with. Inaction is inaction and inaction will not get the job done! 

If you're serious about your goals you'll take action. So many people want the prize but don't want to pay the price! 

Can I tell you a secret friend? It won't work. 

Dreams don't work unless you do!

And to the believers, I'm all for standing on God's word & promises, however God will show up when we do our part. The key is, we have to do our part! The book we read says faith without works is dead. Rather than sitting around waiting on God to bless us, we must work and give God something to bless!  

He blesses the work of our hands, are you giving him something to bless? Indeed, God is still in the blessing business but we've got to have some "skin in the game."  I think this philosophy is best described in the quote "Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on you!"

Avoid failure… take action!

Get out there! Do something! Do anything. It will be okay if you make a few mistakes, none of us have ever been perfect. The important thing is you're on the move. Do something each day to get you closer to your goals. As long as you're doing something you're going in the right direction. but by God take action! 

The man of action will beat the man of theory any day. 


Don't be this guy!

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

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…
