I’m going to make this short and simple.
YOU are the problem.
The government, the economy, your job, your skill level, your education, your parents, your upbringing, your relationships, your faith, your community, your location, the list can seriously go on.
None of that is the problem!
YOU listen to the lies you were told. YOU hold yourself back. YOU can change things, but you won’t. You’re not willing to change because of fear. Fear that you might fail, you might be ridiculed, it might be difficult, it might challenge you.
Failure is only possible if you quit.
Every problem you have comes back to you. The reason you are not where you want to be comes down to the actions you take every day, and the excuses you make. It’s a tough truth to swallow, but when you do, you can begin the repairing process. So where do you start?
Understand that you are the problem, take full responsibility, and make changes. These changes are not about changing your job, location, friends, or anything, it’s about changing you. You’re changing your mindset from the lies you were told growing up. “Don’t work too hard,” “Play it safe,” “Get a job with good benefits like retirement and 401k,” “Buy a house, it’s a great investment,” “Starting your own business is risky,” “Take it easy,” blah blah etc etc… Another long list. You have to change your way of thinking to get out of this sink hole of bad data. You need to surround yourself with data that is actually going to help you reach your goals. Read books. Read LOTS of book. Read as many books as you possibly can. My personal favorite authors are Grant Cardone and Robert Kiyosaki, because they are doing what I wish to do. They have financial freedom, have amazing products, and help lots of people become successful. Part of their mission is to help people realize their full potential, and show that anyone, with enough hustle and action, can achieve the success they want.
YOU are the solution!
Now that you’ve realized the real problem and are willing to take responsibility for it, you are now the solution. You can change your mindset and start taking actions to get the success you deserve.
This all starts with you, and ends with you. So take action today to begin your journey to achieving your goals and dreams!
