How I found my purpose in business is probably VERY different than the movie popcorn rags to instant riches story.
Like molding a piece of iron into something useful…
…it took work.
The minute I took responsibility for my trajectory in life and knew what to make my FOCUS, I no longer felt alone or without purpose again.
Did I have it all figured out at first?
Looking back on HOW I’ve come to the point I am, I didn’t have a lot of shit figured out all.
I didn’t need to.
I just knew I could apply myself to solving a set of problems for a very specific type of person…
…who I later was able to narrow down through trial and error.
And I made it my mission to help them.
I observed them.
I listened to them.
I made an offer to help them.
I took their money.
I solved their problem.
Rince and repeat today.
For someone who doesn’t know his father…
…wasn’t raised in a traditional family environment, only has a high school education, found himself living on the street, and has almost died from two drug overdoses…
…I haven’t done too bad.
But I was lost at one point.
Looking back, there were 3 words that come to mind.
They’ve turned my life around.
They shaped my perspective of myself and of why I am here.
Today I don’t believe in excuses.
Only contribution and growth.
The only thoughts that are powerful are the ones I choose to believe.
Where ever you are…
…there’s always a reason to thrive.
A purpose to live for.
