Hey what’s up!? I’m pretty excited today because I’m about to embark on adventure a new direction that’s been in the making since 2009 really.
I’ve been on this crazy journey as an entreprenuer and like most things I do, I severely screw up a couple of times before things just “click”.
My wife isn’t too pleased with my progress to date, but I’m not letting that stop me from creating the life of FREEDOM that she deserves.
I’m 100% ready to create a lifestyle that most people dream about.
Especially after how painful work was for me this week. I vow to never have this happen again. I went through the same thing when I quit the restaurant industry.
Actually… let me tell you this story really quick because you’re gonna gain a lot of insight on how one seemingly small decision can warp your entire future.
The Steakhouse Decision
It was around 2002 or 2003 when this story all went down. I was a young 22 year old college student working as a bus boy, trying to make ends meet.
I worked at a delicious steakhouse and I absolutely loved it there. Food was good. Girls were pretty. Dudes were cool. We partied.
We studied and had a great time.
But everyday, I had a nagging feeling.
There’s got to be more to life than this. Why am I in school? Why am I working so hard for another person?
I need to get a job so I can just start making money. That’s what I thought.
Well I worked the same day, same time every week. Like clockwork, just how I like it.
And then one day they changed my schedule on me. When they did that I didn’t check the schedule because it was the same for two years.
I was just chillin’ at home on the couch watching sports waiting to go the gym or the library, when I got a call from my manager asking me where I was.
I told him, I’m not working today. He replied saying that I was on the schedule.
Needless to say, I was LIVID. How dare they change my flow! This is my life! Don’t tell me what to do! I’m a college student that’s about to become a young professional!
I AM BETTER THAN YOU!
That’s basically how I felt. So I did what any rational person would do.
I DECIDED that I would NEVER work food service ever again. And that I would make more money than THAT guy. Just to be able to come back and say. Yeah, I’m better than you bro. You still work here?
Fast forward to 2014
Well, I never worked a day in food service. And I make more than that manager.
One small decision to quit that job propelled me further than ever. It was a simple decision.
But it was so powerful.
The same thing just happened to me again this week.
Do you understand how freakin’ powerful this is? I RECOGNIZE it this time. Before I didn’t and it was all retrospective.
This time. I’m recognizing this happening in real time.
As I write these words, I’m getting so damn excited.
Because there is a special project that will all but guarantee that I take my business to the next level. And in such a way that most people will think that I came out of no where.
The reality is that I’ve been doing personal development, training, implementing, building for years.
There was only one piece missing. And I’m about to solve that problem. Pretty much instantaneously.
And guess what… YOU are going to be the benefactor…
Watch this space like a hawk because I’m going be offering some pretty damn sweet things in the next week.
With that I leave you with this video. Changes by 2Pac
