…Like somethin’ just isn’t working … but you keep on doing it anyway, over and over and over again, hoping something’s gonna change for you?! Hint: (Like you’re job!) LOL .. We’ve all been there, it’s all good! I was stuck in a job for years, because my parents told me that was what I was supposed to do. Problem was, I was gullible enough to think that things were gonna “get better someday“…
Now I know that I had what some people actually call Some Day Disease, better known as Quiet Desperation…
I remember, back in the day, I always had this feeling in the back of my brain, that I needed to do something different. I was better than that. I had this lame ass dead-end job that I hated, typing numbers into computers and loading the boxes up for shipping, and had absolutely no plan or ideas on which direction I could head. My boss was an ass. Not very sharp either. The bosses never recognize that I worked harder than the talkative break-taking slow guy next to me, but we got paid the same. That wasn’t fair! I busted my ass, for 12 hours every night, 6pm to 6am, just to find out that they tax you even HARDER when you do over-time, so it never amounted to anything more. No matter how many extra hours I sweated over those boxes, I still lived paycheck to paycheck. It was going to be impossible to have any kind of quality life if I didn’t find something better…
What It Will Cost You NOT To Do Something Different Immediately
I wanted a better life, but I didn’t read the personal development books like they told me. I also didn’t invest my free time (or the little money I made) wisely. Instead, I was chasing women, went to clubs, buying beers, and watching other people live their dreams on TV. Only later I learned how they did it. I’ll give you a hint. They didn’t watch other people (who had worked their asses off to be good at a skill) live their dreams on TV. Those few who were actually physically on the court, had practiced and trained, investing time and money into themselves, every extra second they had. The few who did that were not watched by the 20,000 people in the stands who give their money, watching other people WIN the game of life from the sidelines.
It’s not that I didn’t deserve the dream life I have now. It’s that I made the decision not to deserve it, by doing stupid things with my time and money, every hour of every day. I was actually, every second, deciding not to actively search out better ideas to find and try better ideas. It was almost like my ego didn’t want to admit that I was doing something wrong, that wasn’t working. I had my head buried in the dirt, like an ostrich, settling for what life “gave” me, as I struggled, month-to-month for the next 3 years. The regret of daily decisions like that aren’t going to hurt you so much now, but when you’re on your death bed, you’re going to feel that, and it’s going to be painful if you don’t at least get up and give it your best.
My baller friend T.R. finally asked me again if I had ever read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” and of course I still hadn’t, even though others successful people told me to do the same. When I finally read it, years later, I found out that I was building someone ELSE’S dream, not my own. What I was doing, had been getting me nowhere, slow and painful. No wonder I had that feeling in the back of my brain!
No wonder I couldn’t ever get ahead, or had any assets to show for all my hard work! I was closed-minded, getting TAXED TO DEATH, passing up opportunity after opportunity. I was just doing what “they” told me to do – taking their advice to “go to school, get a job”, but they had no success, so why the hell did I do what they told me? How many years did I waste, by not listening to these better ideas from successful people?
Doing “what I was told” was not working for me AT ALL, so I had to finally un-“fix” my mind to be open for new ideas….
Making Better Decisions. Like The Decision To Do Something
I used to think that I was just taking a while to make my decision, but wow, what an idiot. That is actually a decision to not make a decision, which is the deadliest of all. You’re doing absolutely nothing while you’re acting like you’re making a decision, and that is just an story you tell yourself to ease your ego for sitting there, paralyzed with fear, doing absolutely nothing.
Luckily, I learned to get drop my ego, open my ears, stop trying to “figure it all out” and “not make mistakes” before I took massive action with millionaire mentors in the books and seminars. They said “you’re going to make mistakes, so hurry up and make them, and then you’ll figure out exactly what to do!”
I stopped just “hearing” what they said, and act like I knew, but actually started DOING what they DO, and things finally started to change for me. I got disciplined, and it took years of struggle, but I learned “delayed” gratification, and earned and saved more money to invest time into building business assets of my own.
Today I am no longer owned by a job or my small businesses. I am no longer looking for a raise in another dead-end J.O.B. with no freedom. I am officially PSYCHOLOGICALLY UNEMPLOYABLE, and will never have a boss again! Today I wake up when I’m done sleeping, and when I wake up there’s even more money in the bank. Then go on to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, for how long I want, every single day! I’ve been here for all the important things with my new baby Lucca, who is 2&12 years old. Every first crawl, walk, bike ride, everything!
I wish I could just pour this feeling of freedom into you. If I could, I would, right now this second. Your chest would flutter with warmth and excitement for the future. Your would start to dream again. You wouldn’t have to shrink your dreams to match your income, any longer. And you would believe in yourself, taking massive action toward your goals. You would have a deadline, and you would start right now, and you would make it.
Financial and time freedom takes a bit to understand, and unless you are tired of being broke, tired, or busy, you won’t invest the time to figure out how to change your situation. When your mind is open and ready, you’ll come actively searching, and what you search for, you always find. That’s called the Law of Attraction. Again…
In Order To Change, You Have To Be Tired Of Being Broke, Tired, Or Busy, And It Would Have To Be More Painful NOT To Change Than To Do Something Different
I finally decided to make the decision. I decided to do something different. Now I am in a position of influence because I know where people are mentally, because I used to be there. I can relate. I broke my own barriers and patterns, so I know how to help others interrupt their own.
We’ve been programmed from our parents and working-class society to “go to school”, “get good grades”, so you can “get a stable secure job”, and “pay your taxes”, going back and forth to work until your life is basically over.
Is that what you’re looking for? Is that working, or do you feel like something is wrong?!
You don’t reeeaally want that kind of life, do you?
I personally don’t believe that is what life is about. Just existing to work and and chase money, spending most of our time away from our kids and families is not the best quality of life, so why keep making bad decisions over and over and over again?
Your dreams can be achieved with a simple step-by-step PLAN.
Do you have a plan? Do you have any idea how to build a business asset that will set you free within 5-7 years?
Where were you five years ago? Were you working? Has anything changed?
You must gain the courage to make a tiny change in direction. Some course correction. And you must be willing to invest some time into yourself. It’s going to be so fun, learning something new and exciting!
