People are always jealous of results but they are never jealous of the bone breaking hard work, years and years of time, total and utter sacrifice of comforts and relationships, endless blood pressure busting trouble and risking everything to achieve that result.
So many people are selling an “easy way” to start a business, become a bestselling writer, create a passive income, trade stocks or FX or Bitcoin but the truth is there is no easy way and there is no free way to anything done properly. Yes you can mess around at all those things with little money and little time but to get what you really want you have to put a lot in.
I can buy a basketball and a pair of Jordans and spend half an hour a day playing in my yard but does that mean I can be a pro baller? Absolutely not. The same applies to most things.
The difference between can I ever be good enough to play in the NBA or any other sport and being succesful at almost anything else is you don’t have to be young and born with talent to make it. You just have to be as prepared to do whatever it takes and put the work in.
To start my first business I had to work 2 jobs to save up £2500 (about $3500) to start and that was a shoestring budget even back in 2001. Today people complain about investing $1000. Really?
When I started my first business I couldn’t afford a web designer and tools like WordPress, Wix or even Facebook pages just didn’t exist. I bought 2 books on HTML coding and created my own website from scratch. It took me 2 weeks at night after work to create a site that you could make in an hour or 2 with free tools and no knowledge today. Yet people tell me now they don’t have the time or energy or skills after their day job to do it. Really?
It took me 3 years of hard work and living on the most basic money and I mean beans on toast for breakfast, lunch and dinner type money before I finally made JUST the same money as I used to make in my old job. Yet people complain when they still just bought a new car but it’s not quite the car they wanted, they just came back from another vacation and it’s taking too long to get their career/business where they want it to be. Really?
Nobody is going to do it for you. I had mentors, I bought books, I read endless amounts on the internet and I talked the hind legs off anyone that would listen and I could get to give me some information back but nobody did anything for me UNLESS I paid them a truck load of money. Ten times more than anyone paid me for advice but then also expected me to do it for them.
Not everyone wants to do it, I get that. Everyone should be happy and do what they enjoy and I have the most respect for people working in jobs they enjoy trying to make a difference. But the next time you see a post of me in a nice car or enjoying another country on my travels or anyone else for that matter and you feel you’d like the same, ask yourself if you could do what it takes to achieve it. If the answer is no, that’s OK, there’s probably things you’ve done that I can’t do. If the answer is YES then great I’d love to hear from you, if you think I can help you in any way get in touch via the form below and we can arrange a free no obligation call.
Every day I mentor and train people just like you to create new businesses, sell more and become more profitable in existing businesses, write, publish and promote bestselling books and invest in themselves and their businesses for the future.
