I recently talked with someone on facebook about their business in hopes of a future interview.
She informed me of people talking to her since 2013.. its currently 2016 about fixing their credit and changing their life.
Do you understand how much change could have occurred in 3 years?
Do you know how many youtube stars, bloggers, amazon fba and house flippers have amassed fortunes in that time?
do you know how many of friends or her friends have gotten married, started having children and traveling?
3 years is a long time to keep talking about something and nothing happen.
I remember being on ramit sethi I will teach you to be rich email list where he sent out surveys. People said they were thinking about starting a business for 3, 5, and even 7 years. Ramit basically said get off my email list. If you have been thinking about starting a business for 7 years and not taken action you are not serious.
I don’t believe everyone should have a business, but I believe there are some smart folks coasting at a job they don’t care for. There are massive changes coming to the economy and it will be better to MAKE the decision EARLY to start something for yourself. Many people will have to go to community college for a new trade, new skills or a new opportunity.
I have struggled with starting and stopping, but overall I persist. I finally see the results of daily sales from different things I have produced and realized if I had more focus I would have a snowball of results. You have to DECIDE that you want a different life. In order to have a different life it requires different actions.
what is one major thing you can do this year to change your life?
is it exercise ? GET a TRAINER, what you are doing isn’t working, you need a push.
is it business? get a COACH, if you have no clue save yourself some mistakes.
Don’t know? Read some books grab audible and listen to 1 book a month. Over the course of a year you will be FAR ahead of all Americans except CEOs.
Dating? Marriage? Kids? well look the best you can, have your emotional baggage CHECKED and make a decision. NO half ass here. Go do the events, concerts, speed dating, go dancing, take classes for fun (spanish, tango), go online dating, break out your RUT. I know too many people on the same level for years claiming they want more and kids. NO you don’t, because you won’t change behavior or patterns.
Life is momentum either you can swing and push forward or slide backwards. there is NO stand still. All the Saturdays with friends and fun times will go quickly. Enjoy them. Put in the work so you can have MORE Saturdays all week long.
