skypicThere is always something else going on in life isn’t there? There is something there side tracking us, pulling us away from what we are attempting to do, slowing us down at every turn, keeping us away from loved ones.

WELL SUCK IT UP! That’s life!!

If all we were to do was coast through life without challenge or adversity there wouldn’t be any amazing stories to learn from and share. Everyone has speed bumps on their way to success; the only difference is how each challenge is perceived.

Working with so many different people I hear all kinds of stories why people “can’t” do it. This is baloney. Your current obstacle in life is either going to be the excuse why you “can’t” do it or the reason you are doing it.

Please know that I am talking about excuses people make when someone is presented with an opportunity, investment, or anything that will change their life for the better. There are just so many examples, for instance: “I have been eating so much lately and I am so busy, I “can’t” make time to go to the gym.” OR “I have been eating so much lately I AM going to go to the gym because I like being busy and I want to feel healthy.” See the difference?

Here is another: I “can’t” invest that $100 and change what I am doing a few hours a week, I never see my family as it is.” OR I AM investing that $100, I never see my family and I want to be a part of their lives. I will do whatever it takes to make my family financially independent.”

You see there is no legitimate excuse for anything. We all have 24 hours in a day and there are some people making billions and some people scrounging for pennies. The difference is one persons excuse became their reason and the others reason is their excuse.

What’s YOUR reason?

It is unfortunate, but if you are not aware by now you should be. The vast majority of people are unable to live the life they intended by the age of sixty five. Here is the break down I was recently previewed to during a financial seminar.

A study of 100 peoples financial well being calculated from when they were 25 to 65:

1-Wealthy
16-Above Average
45-Average
22-Below Average
6-Poverty
10-Welfare

With all the millions of people in America for that matter, going to colleges, dreaming, aspiring for more out of life, why is it that only about 1%-5% are truly achieving their dreams? If your dreams today are your answers for tomorrows questions what is the hold up? What I have come to find out is that everyone dreams, but not everyone dreams equally.

We have heard that “the sky is the limit,” “shoot for the stars so you can settle for the moon.Settle!?! This is the land of opportunity you shouldn’t have to settle for anything! The time is now to take control and put an end to your “Journey Of Brokeness” (J.O.B.). If you need the “secure” income for the time being that is fine, but if you are not spending time, regardless of how much it is, building some type of passive income stream life is not going to be getting any easier anytime soon.

Don’t give the control to your financial planner who is telling you how much to put away so you can have an income when you are in your 60’s, work hard on something you believe in NOW so in the next 3-5, or 5-10 years have a remarkable income that will pay you the rest of your life. Whether it is learning to invest wisely in real estate, investing in house buying companies in Denver, studying internet marketing to leverage global markets, getting started with a network marketing company, whatever it is find something where you can control results. Everything has ratios, number of contacts to number of deals.

It is 100% up to you. The price is the promise. How much are you willing to pay, and is it worth it? Ninety percent of business and success is inspiration, only ten percent is info. “Some of us learn from other peoples mistakes, the rest of us are the other people.” – Zig Ziglar

Make the decision today and stop being the other person. Step out of your comfort zone and take action!

Good luck and have a wonderful day!
