I thought it was amazing when I paid my mortgage with profits from a business I started for less than a pair of shoes....in my first month! I REALLY thought it was amazing when I made a couple grand my second month! Now I'm FLOORED because "one of those things" is flying me out AND putting me up to hear from one of the most successful leadership experts in the entire world, John Maxwell ! It costs thousands to sit in his workshops and companies pay him even more to coach their executives! This may not be much to you, but I'm just a kid from the East End and it's all kinda surreal that all this comes from "a business that doesn't work!"
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.
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!
