When You’re Down, Get Up!
The Comfort Killer Mindset
Life isn’t always cracked up to what you expect it to be, in fact, sometimes it can be downright difficult to even get out of bed in the morning. At least, that’s what I hear. In fact, I remember a day when I had that same victim mentality! As Comfort Killers, we have learned how to divide and conquer our own negative mindsets, our own victim mentality, and we strive every day to destroy our comfort zone and attack each day like it may be our last, leaving our family with a legacy that will be held for generations to come!
We have to remember, that there may, or may not, have been a time when we didn’t think so positively, which means there are people around us who may have that same mindset. We have to decide one of two things as Comfort Killers,
- Do we let them wander about spreading negativity
- Do we reach out to them and help them accomplish their goals
Regardless of any job that I’ve ever had, there is always that group, you know the one I’m talking about. The big talkers, the big dreamers, the ones who talk about, “when I get money.”
How many times have you heard, I’m going to start something and I’m going to get a lot of money, and I’m going to get a new BMW and travel to Dubai? That same group, is the same group of people who consider the 40 hour a week job, too time consuming to start their own business, or to join network marketing. They speak without action, they judge without knowledge, and they laugh at you when you tell them you have already begun the creation process by saying, “you’re not doing anything.”
Not long ago, I was in the construction industry, I worked with my father and my uncle, and even speaking about one day, leaving a huge financial legacy for generations to come, was out of the question, and quickly shot down. That is when the shift came, and I had started working a door to door sales job for a multi-billion dollar energy company. I had quickly soared and became one of the top sales agents in the company, and shortly after was training people with no sales experience to become successful in sales.
Although, the money was great, I was still unfulfilled. Soon after, the money left, and my enthusiasm was at the lowest level. In fact, the money got so bad, my wife and I had to start using our savings to pay our bills. I spent years, studying on my own, how to become successful, how to get seen, how to build a business, and how to maintain a positive mindset.
Day in and day out, if I wasn’t training someone, I was training myself. I can’t tell you how many times I thought to myself, am I being silly, am I wasting my time, will I ever find a way to do what I want to do and still be happy?
We were burning thorough our savings fast, and it was time for me to find another job. I left the energy industry and took a sales job for AT&T. I was less happy than I had ever been, but I continued to stay focused towards my goal. I began to network with like-minded individuals on social media, and I stayed focused with a positive attitude, regardless of our situation, regardless of our money situation, and I saved every penny I could get my hands on. After some time, I finally had enough money to launch my L.L.C.
Sometimes, things can be great, everything is going your way, clients are coming in, and you are on top of the world. Other times, it may be slow, you can’t build momentum, and times may be tight. Just remember, it will change, stay positive, stay motivated, stay on the phone, and stay hungry!
Do not allow yourself to be sucked into their game, even if you are having doubtful thought, keep creating, keep growing, keep networking, and keep being a Comfort Killer!
