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 :)

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.

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…

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
