It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. - Theodore Roosevelt

Seems crazy right?

I bet you’re telling yourself that wouldn’t be you.  That you’re not crazy.

But is there a limit to achievement?

Are you willing to set a limit for yourself?

What is success but a continuous progression of motions that lead you to leap hurdles and move boulders that impeded progress?

Life is forward motion and there will always be stumbling blocks and roadblocks.  I personally look forward to them.  These impediments only make me stronger faster and more resolute.  Dominating is a rush, and like Arnold Schwarzenegger I never wanted to be average. 

What do you want?

Have you established your WHY?

If not lets work that part out together. lets chat

SPEND your way to SUCCESS.

SPEND your way to SUCCESS.

I know, I know. Suze Orman will lynch me and Robert Kiyosaki will probably argue this though I bet he concurs. Sorry though folks. Tony only had a poor dad. And I’ve seen how spending helps growth and success levels.

-Private school.
In my youth my parents wanted me and my sister in private schools. And no we weren’t snobs or high falootin’ either. What we were (are) was well educated. My sister could read proficiently at age four. And I was a poor reader until after the first grade but after that I gained acceptance to a gifted program. I say this not to brag but to speak on the efforts others put into us. At middle school age we both began private school educations having tested highly and procuring funding through scholarships and what have you. However there was a balance to be paid and my parents met the need and met it well. We were never threatened with removal et al due to lack of funding. You see my parents knew that spending their last pennies to secure a solid education for their children was a way to spend it all and win back richly. Many people will argue the merit of charter schools, advanced programs and what have you- but I know that we benefited vastly from a private school environment and education. From this I learned that what is worth having is worth paying for. Things gotten at too low a price aren’t worth much. Now Barter Kings will disagree and many thrifty buyers as well. Heck I love a good sale! However something require cash.
The other part to this lesson is that I will spend money on training and courses to further my knowledge. I love to buy books that teach me new and exciting materials in my quest for wealth and personal growth. I also have paid for courses and even a simple conversation with a mentor. The right knowledge from the right mouth can be the difference between success and failure. Buy what you need people. We don’t buy cheap shoes right? We don’t buy cheap toilet paper right? How much more important then are the dollars we spend to feed our minds and cleanse our souls? Lead by learning people.

-Buckminster gave it all away.
Buckminster Fuller gave all his money away. Every month he had a zero at the end and never wanted or lacked for the rest of his days. Now this is a philanthropic form but the method is the same none the less. He spent to help and gave to others without ceasing. This strategy kept the Infinite Power on his side and put his karma over the top. You see I’ve noticed a trend- when you give you get. Even in the Bible the only time God tells you to test him is with tithing. No concept besides giving can bear such fruit and release such power.
This form of spending is guaranteed to bless you.

-Spending can be your drive.
I noticed an odd trend after I got married. I started to want more my wife and I. I worked two jobs while taking college classes- my day job with kids and afterwards tutoring through a separate program. I also did extra hours escorting at risk youth from my job to and from school. Over time our debts shrank and we were able to replace an old car with a new one. Every year for five years I met the pay upgrades and procured summer work when I didn’t get it from my job. I found ways to buy everything on sale. By having a hunger for more we literally rose to a higher
standard of living. I will say though that this can be perverted and in keeping up with the jones’ you will go broke. So be smart and know the difference between motivation and greed.


Quick recap:
-Lead by learning.
-Some things, like education (and toilet paper) are worth the money. So don’t cut corners.
-Give until you can’t. And you will always get.
-Wanting more can fuel your abilities.

Fake it till you make it. (And other concepts you might like)

Fake it till you make it.
(And other concepts you might like)

Ok so it sounds nuts. I know. But I have a friend who subscribes to this theory and we will explore it today.

-Fake it till you make it is a simple concept that dictates you implicate your greatness before it has arrived in its fullness.

Sounds perfect I’d say. You see here you are being implored to put forward the millionaire, the king, the champ. Its akin to method acting. Get into the roll and you will succeed. And for some its the simple act of pretending they are king that makes them king. In life perception is key in any arena. If people perceive you to be successful often times you will be. People buy what you sell so the question is are you selling the thrifty kid who lives in his moms basement? The cheapskate who is smart? Or perhaps the put together businessman who is seeking partners not change? Its that’s simple to be the same guy and lose the same clients,
partners, and or investors. Solution?

-Act As If.
Act As If is simply being who you will become. When you are selling, act as if. When you are closing- Act As If. Be the Ceo. He’s the boss and if you are the captain of your ship so are you. Are you an industry leader? Act As If. Now I’m nut suggesting you go around pretending and misleading clients as an SEO genius or some equivalent. What you should be doing is exuding the confidence an expert has. Mastery of a subject or concept will add confidence and should bolster your ability to attract clients et al. Act As If means you be the BOSS. If you are aiming for success you should be the boss. Aren’t you the boss? If not you will spend all of your dies building someone else’s dreams. You Decide.

-What you do daily will dictate your success level.
Your habits should dictate success. A winner does. And so does a fake it till you make it king. You see you have to look the part and act the part. Are you dressed for success even to simply post a blog? You should be. You will see the winner or the loser based on your appearance- and so will everyone else. Ready to be the boss? You get your To Do List done. And so does the fake it till you make it guy- your list is the basis for success. You get it done in order to win. No matter your position to get to the top you have to do the daily grind.
Get it done people.

-Daily is your mentality that of a Leader or a follower?
If you wake up and treat your venture as a job- you have a boss. And you have failed. If you get up and don’t tell yourself you will conquer, you will be conquered. If you have a worker bee mentality than you will always be in the hive. Sorry folks but I don’t see success in this mentality. What we focus on mentally is what we achieve and if you focus on a sucky job- you will always have one.
If you focus on Modern Warfare 3- great. Congrats- you have achieved NOTHING. Now we could argue that you can build team skills, and leadership skills, blah, blah, blah,
Truth be told. You are losing. A leader focuses on getting tasks done. The leader will bring out the best in others. Leadership is a character that is built by doing. So when you wake up in the morning what do you intend to build? Good game stats or blog hits that total over a million unique visits in less than a year?
Do you look for knowledge or check email for the bosses newest missive on how he wants your productivity to increase and when?
These actions aren’t smart or productive.
Waking up and meditating is.
Starting with reading a book is. Intaking instruction and exhaling stress works. Getting the things you hate done first is smart. These things are the making of a leader. A follower dreads leaving bed. He hits the snooze seven times. He avoids productivity at work. He sneaks Facebook time on work servers. A leader will work hard at work until he is his own boss. And then works harder. Everyday you have to tell yourself you are the boss and then move from that perspective.
Get it done people.
