STEROIDS DONT KILL

6 Jul

Ever notice that people aren’t willing to let others success simply be?
I was talking about Arnold Schwarzenegger and other Olympic bodybuilders with some coworkers. And you know what the common theme and first responses to my holding these men in such high esteem was?
‘Yeah he roided up.”
Or
‘You can’t get that big without cheating.”
Or
‘Steroids kill.’
And finally-
‘He couldn’t do that naturally.’

Now the use of steroids isn’t the issue for this article. My three points of contention are as follows:
-People hate/are jealous without rhyme or reason.
People will hate you. Simple truth. Hate and anger are usually internal issues turned outwards. And what that means is that most people will find a reason to hate you. And the greater you become the more hate you will garner. As with the Schwarzenegger issue. People found reasons to hate his success. They slandered and denigrated the man. It was simple. This man was a foreigner who rose. And people will hate you like they hated him. Assuming he did wrong and or cheated to the top is callous. For him to even make the steroids work requires the effort, diet, and time in the gym. Sorry I’m not an advocate for steroids but I know a thing or two about working out and you have to put the work in.

-The people you are with don’t always edify you.
Its sad but true. A lot of people we are close to don’t feed our greatness. And in life, what you put in you get OUT. So if your friends are always downplaying your creativity- cut them loose. If your boss denigrates you repetitiously- get a new job. Or you start your own business in any case you have to remove those people who don’t build you up. No- You MUST separate yourself from those who won’t increase your value.

-The people surrounding you bring negative vibes that may stave off results- you know, success, wealth, happiness. The good stuff.
Sorry to say but naysayers ruin momentum. Fools bring ignorance. And a doubting thomas may cause you to doubt yourself. These people come across in many forms and mentalities. And many come in the guise of friends, family, and even business partners. You are probably surrounded by more negativity than you see. A lot of people you have been in the trenches with. And a lot hide their negativity. Learn to avoid both. How you say? Simple. Watch patterns. Time behaviors. Everything you need to know about the negative nicks is there. You only have to be willing to believe it. Will you?

In life many people want you to fail. Some people think they need you to fail. I say you only have the chance to succeed.
And as I always say- Hate is Love.

Training: Buy and Apply

Training: Buy and Apply.

Training who needs it?
I haven’t seen this topic covered too much on the blogs or in general. The answer is EVERYBODY.
In every aspect of life you have probably had a teacher or a mentor. Someone generally illuminates the path for us. This is highly beneficial and should always be sought out.
And so-

-Training- BUY it.
WHY you ask?
I counter with why not?
In business you need a good cpa, no question. And the cpa in question should be proficient at a minimum. Same for your doctor right? Well these professionals. Accrued hundreds if not thousands of hours to obtain their licensing. And they also maintain their licensing by continuing education. To be the best you pay a price. And to excel beyond your last point you pay more. So why is it that some will assume they don’t need to cough up some cash to get ahead. What makes you different?
You are starting your own business or already have one if you’re one of my regulars. If you’re not you probably will. That being said if you could learn your business and skip hundreds of small failures for a small cash price wouldn’t that be worth it. Now failures make us stronger but there is a limit to finding inner strength and wasting time. Don’t you win if you skip ahead? Remember monopoly? You pass ahead of the guy with eight hotels with a simple roll of the die and you exhale in relief. Still not sure you want to duplicate that process on your terms?

-Training- APPLY IT.
This is going to sound ridiculous. I acknowledge many will say so and stop reading even. However many buy and ignore. More people buy to feel they are doing and never will. Let’s examine that.
Ever bought a gym membership you didn’t use? You paid the fee, made a resolution, and then life had other things in mind.
Or you dated a girl who prepaid her yoga classes so her and her friends could go and bond and grow? And in the end she was watching Sex and the City instead? A final favorite is the guy who joins a venture and it requires licensing so he pays out the refundable fee and decides he has better things to do than recoup that money and learn, aka MIND his business. I’ve seen a lot of this and its always the same thing. The back hurts. The engine wouldn’t turn over. But the sad truth is what we want we go out and get. So if you paid for a training series why won’t you take it. And then refresh it a few months later? If you don’t learn these basics you will get nowhere.
And you know what? I used to make this same mistake. I bought good training and didn’t use it. I took the next step only to sit down instead of running. And even worse- I did this twice! Yup I admit it. I bought programs that I knew worked from having seen it first hand. I spent my money, I talked about the freedom I’d gain, and then I turned on the you tube. Or I went out with the boys. People the time is now. Seize the day. Move forward. You spent the money. You invested in your freedom and your future. Now spend the one asset you won’t recover- TIME.

Buy your training.
Apply your training.
And then study it all over again.
And AGAIN.

Remember:
We don’t esteem that which we obtain too easily so earn your freedom and your wealth know and enjoy all of your days.
