Taking Baby Steps vs. Jumping In With Both Feet:
Most people will never take a chance and/or follow their dreams, because they see it as an all or nothing, jump in and either sink or swim. It doesn’t have to be like that. It is okay to take things slow, one step at a time. If you need to take baby steps until you can walk, and walk until you can eventually run, that’s perfectly okay to do.
Masters of Money took me 7 years, going through several company name changes, a divorce, all of the real life “MJ The Terrible” events and issues, and more, to finally get the company off of the ground. I’m very glad I stuck with it. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it, and the life I am lucky enough to lead now, is better than I could have imagined it to be.
Don’t settle for less than everything you want. Know when to shut up and collect the money. It’s better to get paid than be right. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but it can afford you the time to find happiness. Without a challenge, you can’t rise to anything. Pick your battles. Push your limits. Ask for more. Demand better. Eliminate should from your life by doing. Live a life without regrets, by trying everything that interests you in the least, and don’t waste time, because time is the most valuable commodity in life.
No matter what people tell you, you can make a comeback from anything. I am living proof of that. I am a just a regular guy, who almost died, had to learn how to walk and talk again after the subdural hematoma ruptured in my head, and during that same time, I had to deal with the fact that many of the people in my life that I thought cared about me, abandoned me, I had to battle my wife(now ex-wife), that was trying to take my kid away from me, the company I worked for was under investigation for securities violations, and more. It sucked, but I knew the only choices I had were to let everything bury me, or make a comeback, get my life back, and most importantly, be the Dad that my son deserved to have
Yours in success,
