Forgive yourself



Forgive yourself.

Yes, you've made mistakes, we all have. 

We're human.  

You forgive everyone else for their mistakes, but do you forgive yourself? 

I encourage you to seriously consider this concept. Your past can be experiences or dead weight. This depends entirely on how you decide to look at it.  If you look at it as situations you've overcome, then it's experiences. If you constantly think about the things you've done and let that deter you from doing things now, it's simply dead...unnecessary... weight. Don't become a hostage to your past by always reliving your mistakes and beating yourself down for making them. Mistakes are parts of life and proof you're living. Don't remind yourself of what should've, could've or would've been. You certainly can't change the past, but you can determine what happens from here on out. Which would you rather use your energy for?

Here's the "skinny." Your past does not dictate your future. Forgive your former self..you're not them anymore. The mere fact of you reading this proves that. 

You're growing right now. Focus on where you are going, not where you are now or have been. Remember that you hold the key to shape your life and your future, but you can't get there by holding on to your past. Learn from it, but move on. The best times of your life are waiting for you.

To your success....and forgiveness:)

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

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…
