“When you have nothing is when you need to give.” - Tony Robbins
While watching an extraordinary interview covering Tony Robbins, he mentions a memorable statement that shall last in any viewers mind forever. He states, “When you have nothing is when you need to give.” In other words you receive more than you give when giving in a purpose of gratitude and not looking for an exchange in return. Better yet, giving is receiving. When we give, (knowledge, currency, physical items, presence, work) we give in a way that will benefit the opposing party in a authentic manner that results in happiness. We must understand to be less selfish and more altruistic.
As we build and improve our business, we shall give our new and current customers something special. Whether its early access to a new idea, discount codes, thank-you letter’s, free events, etc…, treat everyone like you would want to be treated and put a smile on everyone’s face. Remember when you give more, the more happier you become.
“If no one thinks your crazy, your not yet operating to the outer limits of your potential - Brendon Burchard
The cliché saying, “follow your passion” or “live with passion” is so overly saturated that it’s taken for granted because it‘s so easy to do and always used in a positive tone. You don’t have to worry about peers thinking that you’ve changed or family not understanding your vision. Whereas having an obsession…your viewed as an outsider because you isolate yourself from everyone and everything to receive the outcome your proud of. In other words you sacrifice a hell of a lot to get from point A to point Z.
See having an obsession is when you have tunnel vision and having tunnel vision keeps your mind on track to improve, learn and create. When Brendon Burchard talks about “…your not yet operating to the outer limits of your potential.” we have to understand that your obsession becomes so necessary that it connects with your identity because it is who you are.
“You get paid in proportion to the difficulty that you solve.” - Tai Lopez
A lot of people wonder why they get paid the unsubstantial amount of money at their current job while not understanding the level of difficulty they are solving. We must understand that at entry-level positions, you are easily replaceable, which means you receive the lowest wages, which results to solving the easiest problems. The more you get promoted, the more difficult the task. Sadly, most people get comfortable and slave for decades to get to the highest position in a company and the moment they mess up they either get scolded or replaced in a heartbeat. That’s why you must understand that if you really want to become wealthy, become your own entrepreneur to solve tough tasks and move up on your own time. Then reward yourself by improving on your mistakes.
Don’t become ignorant to how the field of business work’s. A lot of companies focus on business first and employees second. Not recognizing their employees allow their business to run smoothly and without them there wouldn’t be any business at all. So always understand that, “You get paid in proportion to the difficulty that you solve.”
“Job security is a complete myth, as is long-term employment.” - Dorie Clark
This week we are focusing on ‘job security.‘ These two words are very impactful when following our entrepreneurial path. First and foremost you cannot get to comfortable at the 9-5 you are currently working at. Now please understand, it‘s definitely good to have a solid job to receive income and use that capital to fund your dreams, but never let that small amount of hard-earning cash have your mind triggered to the real wealth that‘s out here. See sometimes we tend to get persuaded to move up to corporate level after several years of your tenure at your occupation and believing that‘s the dream when it really isn’t. Dreams aren’t controlled by others, only you. So why let someone control your 24 hours for the rest of your life?
Your job security is only as good as the work you produce. You direct your own future. As a entrepreneur you can’t let your guard down if you hope to make a living solely from your dream. Ambition is an intrinsic part of the lifestyle. It’s this drive that job security can kill. Being able to control your future is the best thing that life can give you, so don’t take it for granted.
Committing to your vision in the beginning is a very long rollercoaster ride. It seems as if your kind of nervous when opening up the gates to get seated and buckled in, then your ride begins slowly and takes-off the ramp as your figuring out your next checkpoint, following up when your at the tipping point before the huge drop, you begin realizing that you are prepared for the ups-and-the-downs and that your commitment is your bond.
Commitment is powerful! It inﬂuences how you think, how you act and how you lead. More importantly, a meaningful commitment gives you a script on how to handle things every single time the rollercoaster goes up or down. Now understand that the temptation to quit will arise, but being all-in will make the outcome taste so much sweeter. Good luck!
