Magic?

A lot of people believe that the successful have this magical ability that took them led them to success. This couldn't be further from the truth! A lot of people believe that the successful landed in the lives they dream of because of who they knew, what family they were from, or some even some fancy resume. These things may help, but at the bottom line of most successful people there's a common denominator.  

Yes, there are gifted people. Yes, there are talented people. Yes, there are blessings. However, most people don't have a unique talent that gifted them their success. Most people who've made it to the other side have done so using old fashioned "elbow grease!" They worked, and by God they worked HARD! 

You only see the fruits of their labor,and you call them an "overnight" success. You didn't see the numerous failures and years and years of hard work they put in beforehand to get them the things they desire. You only see the the results, not the struggle. You only see the shine, not the grind. 


Today, I encourage you to take a step to put in the work. Do something to get the things you say you want. Take a step towards your goals, and ultimately your own success :)

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&…
