“I want to be rich.”
“I want to be a millionaire by [insert age].”
That’s most people’s goals.
Don’t get me wrong.
That’s an amazing goal. Most of the team, we want to be successful to take care of our family.
I get it.
But the funny thing is, one of the most common excuses I hear is…
“I don’t have the time.”
“I am tired after working 9-5.”
You’ll never be successful if you have the broke mindset.
Hate me for saying this, but I will still say it.
Ask yourself this…
… are you spending money unnecessarily to buy things you don’t need to impress people who might not even like you?
… are you spending your free time watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones or trying to keep up with the Kardashians?
… are you eating out every night and spending money on food and drinks?
If you want to be rich, being able to take care of your family, you have to be realistic and check in with yourself.
How are you spending your time and who are spending your time with?
And if you’re in debt, strategize on how can you get out of debt?
I’m saying this because I’ve been there.
13 years ago, I accepted a 9-5 job that paid me USD400, because I was USD52,000 in debt because I haven’t even started work.
I thought to myself, why is life so unfair? Why can’t I have a fair start in my career?
But I didn’t allow that to determine my reality.
I was unwilling to settle. I didn’t live to be mediocre.
Change your mindset and you’ll change your life.
You are in control of the outcome and results in your life. If you want a different life, you have to start doing something different today.

Four years ago, today, while driving home from a client meeting something came over me to abruptly exit the tollway and stop at @lifetime.life
to get a membership. I had NEVER stepped foot in a #gym
before then. Between a bad physical and a baby on the way, I knew I had to take better care of my body. I started small, swimming a few laps, walking the treadmill... then @imtisalagha
was assigned to me for a free training session. Sox months later I was down 60 pounds and had a full arsenal of workouts and knowledge to continue chipping away. This mornings weigh in was not my lowest ever, but I am stronger and more athletic today than I ever have been before. If my ex-chain-smoking, junk-food-eating, booze-guzzling, 350+lb ass can do it. Anyone can. Thank you to everyone who has helped me every step of the way. #weightloss #transformationtuesday #hairybearinhisunderwear
Who cares that you've never built a business before.
When you were a baby, you never walked before.
But that didn't keep you from attempting your 1st step!
And I bet you fell several times before you got the hang of it.
It's the same when starting & running a business.
You will make mistakes.
So the f*ck what!
The baby doesn't expect to walk perfectly on its 1st, 2nd or even 3rd try.
But guess what, the baby keeps trying & eventually walks & NEVER looks back.
How many times are you willing to fall?
Most quit after ONE.
Convinced that it'll never work.
Would you commit falling 100 times before you quit?
Your baby self says YES.
That resilience is still in you.
Let her free. 💃🏽
"If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading."⠀
- Lao Tzu⠀
What direction are you headed? Is it to a place where you want to go or somewhere else?⠀
I didn't change direction for years and it kept me in an endless cycle of misery. And even despite that misery, I did nothing to change my circumstances because it was comfortable. But one day I decided I needed change. So I thought about what the alternative to that miserable life would be. ⠀
That's where I'm at now. It's taking care of my body, my health, my mind, and taking control over my career. It's realizing that I don't want to go back to that miserable life. I made the choice to pursue an alternative life than the one I was living. ⠀
You have to decide to either continue living the life you are now or decide whether you want the alternative. For me, the alternative to my current life is not something I will entertain. I’m not going back to that life, and I will do whatever it takes to remain where I’m at. ⠀
So I want you to ask yourself this:⠀
If you’re currently happy in life — what does the alternative to that look like? And how can you avoid that alternative?⠀
If you’re currently unhappy in life — what does the alternative to that look like? And how can you get there?⠀

The amount of ungrateful people in network marketing is baffling. You break your back , stay up late, sacrifice family time , go broke only to have some people complain & bitch about you. People that once listened & got results from your teachings.
I just feel like ego is a seed that starts to sprout in many MLM’ers once they start making a bit of money. Noticed how I said “a bit”. The funny thing is, it’s usually at positions that ain’t even high. But anyways they stop learning like they used to, they feel like they can do everything by themselves. They criticise your leadership. The same leadership that helped them make that money in the first place. Isn’t that interesting !Then what happens? Their income drops.....and boy does it drop. Why? Because they stopped learning, they stopped seeking support, they wanted to go solo. Network marketing will always be a team support. If you wanna be worshipped, be as big as Michael Jackson or Lebron. But you can’t be Mr “ I’ll do it myself”. Humble your ego, roll up your sleeves. Get in the trenches with your team and for goodness sake, appreciate your mentors. Put your ego to one side & be a student. They would never say or do anything that would destroy their income. It just wouldn’t make sense.
People that complain about “my mentor did this, or did that” are not in phase 1. They’re seeking reasons to quit, move teams etc
Because if your personal momentum was high you’d be rolling in money & you wouldn’t have a reason to leave , would you?
So maybe take a look in the mirror & analyse. Maybe you are the root cause of your income problems.
I’m not saying I’m perfect, but I will never cut off my mentors or backstab them, especially if they went out of their way to help me. I never forget that shit. It sits with me. I’ll remain forever grateful. Even if I have disagreements, I handle it as a man. I don’t walk away from them at events or dodge their messages. Just grow up man. A gentleman talks . A boy hides.
With that being said. I had to say this. Most MLM’ers are too politically correct to even post something like this. I don’t care. I’ll say it as it is.
I fucking love this industry & ain’t no-one holding or s
"Getting out of your comfort zone is something that’s so intimidating, especially if it’s something that you fear," says Angie Carrera (@angie_carrera98
), who is a Lifestyle and Fitness Enthusiast.
"The real reason we don’t pursue more experiences is because we are afraid of the things we don’t understand. Once we learn to LISTEN before speaking, we are not as afraid anymore, and we can do those things that are outside our comfort zones. That’s how people live fearlessly, and lead such interesting lives."

What would you be willing pay for something like this? It was a gift but I'm curious if it's worth making more to sell.
