Why having personal success is vital for your well being.
For the last last 7 years, I have been on a path to be my own boss and a self-made entrepreneur. The thought never really crossed my mind up until I was working for At&t. If it wasn’t for At&t being such a horrible place to work for and then later on getting fired, I may have ended up in a dark place. The pain was so bad, that it forced me to reconsider my options. I wasn’t clear exactly what I wanted to do, but I did know for a fact, working for someone else wasn’t for me.
During those years, I have tried several business attempts and have experienced more failures than an average man is willing to endure in their lifetime. I mean for real man..haha.
When those moments do happen, I feel pretty low and sorry for myself for even trying. But then I start thinking about all my heroes growing up.
Grant Cardone was a drug and alcohol addict in his 20’s before he became muti-millionaire in sales and real estate.
Dave Ramsey went bankrupt twice before he became a millionaire.
Sylvester Stallone couldn’t find a stable job or acting gig before Rocky.
Micheal Jordon has admitted that teammates would pass him the ball for the winning game shot and missed. But because of those misses, It allowed him to hold 5 championship rings.
George Lucas had to mortgage his house in order to finish Star Wars; because the studio would not give him any more money to finish the film.
Jeff Bezos the founder of Amazon had people laughing at him when he was selling books online from his garage in the 90’s

I heard a travel podcast the other day and the host was saying, “If you want to travel or all of sudden you have the itch to travel around the world. Then do it! It is necessary for your well being to do it. Traveling may very well be the next step of your evolution for your life and therefore, it is necessary that you do it!”
Like I said, maybe traveling or being your own boss may not be your next goal, but I am willing to bet the farm you have some sort of goals that you would like to follow through. You may not realize it at the moment, but working towards that goal may be the next stage of your evolutionary life. Look at the questions below and write down your answers on a piece of paper or put it in your phone to look at.
