This the truth. Always the family member or friend who have never taken a risk in their life giving their opinion. A opinion that holds no merit and one that comes from ZERO experience. ‘Facebook Friends’ who know you from your online profile and decided they know all about your life. Or its YOU.
Are You the one dishing out the negativity and never taking ownership for your situation? STOP BEING A JERK. I’ll let you in on a secret it really is that easy. And being that guy or gal is never going to make you happy or successful.This behaviour doesn’t make you a bad person. But it can definitely hurt others, is entirely unnecessary and most importantly its negative energy that could be harnessed into something majorly positive.
I feel we are built up in the world where when we lack something instead of being like ‘wow I can work hard and achieve that also’. We are programed to feel jealous, like we are missing out. Or even worse entitled to the same thing as the person who worked their ass off. All we want to do is hit Snooze in the morning.
For those of us in first world countries who really were dealt the right hand in life. We all can go out and make it happen. Get off your righteous horse and make moves. Find out if you have what it takes to sacrifice like the multi million and billion dollar Entrepreneurs.
The real questions to ask yourself are:
1. Am I willing to do what it takes to be successful?
2. Does my attitude affect my success?
3. Am I a action taker ?
4. Why am I acting this way?
5. Does being negative and unsupportive make me a better person?
6. Would I want to do business or work with myself?
7. How can I take action?
8. Why not?
9. How can I solve a problem and bring value to others?
10. What is holding me back from taking action?
There’s no need for the excuses. Education, time or wealth are just more excuses. No one likes a negative Nancy. And entrepreneurs are problem solvers.

It Will Remain a Dream if You Hit Snooze this Morning.
The great thing about this life is that we get to make the choice. We get to do so each and every day. We have total ownership over our actions and thoughts. We have the ability to change them at any second. I am not saying every person is designed to be a multi millionaire business creator but every one can be positive, encouraging and do what they do to the best of their ability. I don’t care if you are flipping burgers or selling homes do it at 100%. Provide service, have integrity and keep growing. Every employee, co worker or business owner I have ever spoken with that truly enjoys what they do always does it with pride, goes that extra mile and most importantly is HAPPY.
Do you need help with your attitude? Its okay. Awareness is critical in making a major shift. And please keep in mind in no way am I say that I never have a bad day. Or that I never seen a sick car or giant house and sad man I wish that was my house. But over the years I have programmed my self to change my thinking. To: How Can I ? Instead of wanting a free ride its about building my own damn theme park and riding any ride I want. And if I don’t well then I have no right to harvest any sort of attitude towards anyone more successful then myself. Earner or inherited. Success come from someones sacrifice. I have just decided that I am willing to make the scarifies that I need to achieve my dreams. Will you?
