Today. People poured into me.

I know it's hard to tell by my huge smile but....

When you constantly pour into others, sometimes you end up empty. 

Yesterday I was empty. I've been staring burnout in the eyes for a long time now....but burning out ain't gonna get me where I need to be......so I did what I always do......keep it moving. 

Today. People poured into me. 

I went to shake a customer's hand and she looked me in the eye and said "Thank you so much. You always go out of your way for us. You really are the best! I mean that!" 
A long time business associate and friend sent me a text saying she couldn't wait to tell people "she knew me when" after I make..nvm. 
One of my "Rich Dads" complimented me on being an astute businessman. I don't think any of them had any idea how much I needed that encouragement. I don't live for other people's opinions but they certainly helped today!

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

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…
