I got this message from Brian Michael that challenged everything I thought about “success” from the very foundation…
Read the message (abridged) bellow and let’s know your thoughts in comment section below.
"The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed."
Throw in the towel.
Say goodbye to your dreams and go back to whatever makes you feel comfortable, secure and at ease.
Grab some junk food, plop yourself down on the couch and flick on the TV.
Then do what the new-age hippies do.
Because that's how you achieve nothing and become nothing. Fortunately, when you achieve nothing and become nothing, you risk nothing. And when you risk nothing, you're safe.
You don't want to be successful.
Success SUCKS. It's not easy. Nor is it fun or "cool". Think about it...
You'll need to withstand soul-crushing workloads and endure pressure from friends and family to "slow down and chill out. You'll need to give up parties, social activities and "movie nights" because you've got deals to do and money to make. You'll need to sacrifice the many good things in life in order to achieve your vision.
Here's the thing -
Whether you want to quit your job, improve and grow a business you already have, or learn to run a business from the road while you travel the world...
...there is something you should know:
This whole "success" thing is NOT for everyone. Hell, it's not even for most people. It's for a few only. It might not be for you. You're probably better off doing nothing.
Because only have a few have the grit and gumption to defy incredible odds and beat a path to their goals... no matter what obstacles stand in their way. Only a few can suck it up and say "f*ck you" to the haters who doubt them. Only a few will do WHATEVER it takes.
...so what's it gonna be?
Are you one of the many...
...or are you one of the few?
Will you sacrifice your self-respect for the illusion of comfort and security?
Or will you face your doubts, insecurities and fears and DO WHATEVER IT TAKES to achieve the life you want?
The choice is yours.
This is no time for dilly-dallying and sitting on the fence.
The longer you wait, the longer your dreams wait.
Do you want success?
Or are you content with mediocrity?
You need to DECIDE NOW.
TODAY. You need to COMMIT. Not to me...to YOURSELF.
If the honest answer is "yes"...
...if you really do believe in the depth of your soul that you have the grit and gumption to make your dreams a reality, then here's what I want you to do:
Get a coach.
Sometimes, the complex in life is actually quite simple. You know, there's a reason why even the BEST in the world have coaches.
Tiger Woods had a coach. Are you better than Tiger woods? So did Michael Jordan and LeBron James. Are you better than them too?
Maybe you don't want success.
In that case, don't get a coach. Ignore these words.
Unsubscribe and delete this email.
But if you're like me, and you're determined to get what you want out of life, then you NEED a coach.
Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and LeBron James had coaches.
I've got a coach. And so should you.
But that sparks the question -
How do you find a coach?
Simple: Find someone who has done what you want to do and PAY THEM to coach you.
Yes, there are ways to get coaching for without paying for it, whether it's by working for free or negotiating a deal... but the fastest way to get hooked up with the person you want is to PAY THEM.
I'm not saying it should be me. But it should be someone. Someone you know, like and and respect. Someone you trust. Someone who has done something that you want to do.
Email them and ASK. Let them know you're interested in coaching, explain what you'd like to learn, make them an offer on what you're willing to pay and how much time you'd like. If they're not interested, ask for a referral to someone else.
See, even if your #1 choice for coach isn't available for coaching, they should be able to put you in touch with someone who CAN help you.
Don't ignore this like you're too good for it. Even the BEST in the world have coaches. That's why they're the best.
Whether you're at $0, $100k, or $10 million, working with a coach is the fastest way to take your life and business to the next level.”
Ok… the rest of the mail was advert. Don’t want to post it here. But what do you think?
