For the love of your family figure out the money
Have you ever started something and then gave up on it?
I think we all have….
You see, often we will get motivated and inspired to do something
and when it doesn’t go according to our plan
it’s taking too long
it’s “too hard”
or we deal with too much rejection
we give up.
How do you know your not 5 minutes away from your breakthrough?
You don’t want to live your life wandering “what if?”
You want to know you did whatever it took, no matter how long and when you get to where you want to be in life
and people ask you why you did it, you can turn around and say:
“Because I said I would”

John Paul Dejoria was a recent guest on the show and for those of you who don’t know who that is, he is an American billionaire businessman and philanthropist best known as the co-founder of the Paul Mitchell line of hair products and The Patrón Spirits Company.
He talked about his early years and the struggles and challenges he went through selling door to door.
He made a great point that really struck a cord with me and I wanted to share it with you today.
If you believe in your product or service and have the internal motivation,
you will deal with the rejection and eventually you will come across someone
who wants what you have.
It’s those that are persistent and consistent that reap the benefits at the end of the day.
Sure, it’s not going to happen in 5 minutes and this is the key.
Success is built over time.
“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy cause”
‘Progressive’ means success is a process, not a destination.
It’s something that you experience gradually, over time.
Failure is so subtle, you can’t even see it or recognize it during the process.’
Often we only see the glory but we don’t know the story.
Most successful people went through hell and high waters to get where they are today.
Its the law of averages.
As long as you keep taking action over the course of time you will get the results that you want.
And if you don’t
it’s no ones fault but your own.
Because when we point our finger at someone else, there’s three fingers pointing back at us.
Every single person on this planet can choose to have a successful mindset.
Can decide to do whatever it takes to get themselves and their family
to the lifestyle they truly deserve and desire.
It’s a small shift in the mind that says:
If not now when?
Your very excuses is the reason why you need to get started.
If I had quit after every rejection, auditioning as a professional dancer for shows,
I would never had traveled the world performing, living my dream while running an automated
Professional dancers are of the same DNA as entrepreneurs.
We posses a daring heart and driving passion to live our dreams.
Working our absolute butts off to get where we want to be, no matter what obstacle stands in our way.
Because obstacles are those frightful things we see when we take our eyes off of a goals.
Sadly, most will quit 5 mins before their breakthrough happens or they wont even start to begin with.
The real question is:
Are you one of the 95%?
Make a commitment to achieve success today not tomorrow.
Because tomorrow may never come and your family is priceless and worth the fight.
“If you love what you do
and who do it with
and its for a good cause
and your customer benefits the most
by god why would you want to do anything else?”
