Nowadays, I find it ridiculous when someone tells me that I cannot have everything that I once dreamed about, it is hilarious when people come up with all these fake and invented concepts in their minds to make sense of why they can`t achieve anything in life... I used to be like that, guided by the wrong directions, the wrong data, the absolute most fake ideas.
I had this "Ah-ha" moment at 22 years old, I was going to college every day, in the class, listening to some "goof" spitting out information and was thinking to myself: "What is this dude talking about, how the hell can I apply this to succeed in life and in business?" Outside used to stay a bunch of losers, so-called leaders, that had failed several courses, the degree was supposed to be done in 3 years and these guys were there for 7 years, barking orders and trying to foist their ideas onto the heads of the younger students, including me and feeding their ego, over and over. I remember every time I was driving home saying to myself: "This is ridiculous, are those the people that I`m gonna work with for the next 40 years of my life once I finish the degree?"
In the summer break, I decided to start studying people who were way... way above me, the big hitters, the millionaires, the billionaires and I came across the biggest insight of my life. The school system is failing, the media is trying to scare the hell out of people and everything my parents taught me so far was nothing more than some wrong data. All I`ve heard was "a degree is everything you need to have a good life, settle down, find a good job, save money for retirement, grow old, be grateful... we are better off than most people, turn off the lights, we are wasting money, don`t work too much, money is the root of all evil, rich people are bad, don`t stand out, a penny saved is a penny earned, eat all your food... the opposites attract!"
“Small thinking has and always will be punished in one way or another” – Grant Cardone
I look back and I realize that I was sleeping under a rock... conventional thinking is the root of all evil!
No wonder why so many people are unhappy in their careers, their marriages, what`s the point in being with an opposite, isn`t it better to spend the rest of our lives with like-minded people?
So, this was insight I needed to take my life to the next level, unveil my true potential, which so far was being shadowed by false data and allow myself to have the resources to help other people... I never felt so happy, so relieved like today, I finally found the reason why I wasn't happy in any of my jobs, with no interest in any course and I can truly say that there are no limits to what I can achieve in the future!
