I used to think like most people.

I used to wonder if all this work would be worth it.
I used to wonder what would happen if I did all this work and still didn't make it.

  • Was I wasting my time?
  • Was all the pain for nothing?
  • Was all the struggle for nothing?
  • Was all the anxiety for nothing?
  • Was all the fear for nothing?
  • Would it all pay off?
  • Would the "magical success fairy" and "the powers that be" grant me the life I desired?
  • Would I be one of the "lucky" ones?

Yes. I used to think like most people do when they think about doing "all this work" for a result that isn't guaranteed. And then "it" happened....and it clicked for me a few years ago the day I bought my first Lamborghini. It's not magical.

Success is not a "lottery" you win.

There is no "chance" and there sure as hell isn't a "success fairy" or "powers that be" that grant you ANYTHING. I remember thinking:

"I did all this work...and now I'm here and this is MY car?" "WTF? That's all it is?"

I was honestly kind of confused it was that simple...that's when I realized...I AM IN CONTROL...my goals ARE GUARANTEED if I'm willing to pay the price. And here I stand on the other side of all the "what ifs" and I'm here to tell you...YOU ARE IN CONTROL TOO!

Most people let the this single thought stop them: "What if I do ALL this work and sacrifice all this time and it doesn't work out?"...so they don't do anything and accept society's plan for them called AVERAGE...and justify their AVERAGE with comments like "it wasn't meant to be" or "They got lucky" while they sit on a barstool on Tuesday afternoon with their "real" friends talking about how they got screwed.

Putting In the Work

What very few come to realize is putting in "all that work" and not reaching your goals IS IMPOSSIBLE.

  1. Form a solid plan.
  2. Execute that plan.
  3. Learn how to improve that plan every single day.
  4. Focus on your goals day in and day out...and make them your life.
  5. Realize that it takes time...not a year...not three years...a full lifetime commitment!
  6. And most importantly: DO THE FUCKING WORK BETTER THAN ANYONE.

When you do that...SUCCESS IS GUARANTEED.
