I think there are going to be tough times ahead…
That wouldn’t normally concern me but we’ve had 10-12 years of easy times.
If you go from an easy regimen to a hard regimen, that’s a shock.
But most people aren’t aware that they’ve had it easy. They think it’s normal to make money easy.
They think it’s normal to have the entire economy shut down for 9+ months and not go into a depression.
It’s like someone being in a coma for that long. You wouldn’t expect that person to work the entire time. You’d expect them to come out of the coma with lots of debt – medical bills and their normal bills too.
We came out of that but not only were we not in debt, but we also had extra money aside.
So this is a warning to everyone, you’ve had it easy.
This isn’t a normal way of living.
We’ve become accustomed to a level of effort that is not acceptable in a competitive market and now we’re headed into a competitive market.
If you want to win in this environment, you’re going to have to make changes.
That’s why I’m hosting a FREE webinar on November 3rd at 6 PM PST that teaches you how to build a financial fortress that can withstand any recession.
I invite you to apply to our Mastermind to join people all over the US who are building Financial Fortresses that will serve them and their families for generations to come.
If you determine this path isn’t for you and you want to go the “get-rich-quick” route – I pass no judgment and truly wish you the best.
But my path led me to multi-millionaire status, six figures in passive income, several thriving businesses, multiple streams of income, and protection from the threat of a crumbling economic system and an employer who I was dependent on.
I know this path can work for you too if you’re willing to do the work.
Don’t forget to set a reminder in your phone that I’ll be on YouTube LIVE, tonight at 5pm PST! Come join and ask me questions!
Someone asked me recently: How do you keep performing at the highest level after all these episodes?
Well, here are 3 things I do that keep me at peak performance
1. I make sure I’m in a leadership capacity.
If you put yourself in a leadership position where others are depending on you, they will naturally pass their problems onto you. Leaders have to solve everything. Being a leader forces me to grow. It forces me to deal with problems, to become a better person and a better leader.
2. I look for ways to put myself in a position where I’m uncomfortable/not confident.
Jiu-jitsu and weightlifting is one of the ways that I do that because now that I’m getting older, it isn’t as easy as it used to be. By forcing myself into situations that aren’t comfortable, it puts me in a position where I can be in peak performance in the same way that being a leader welcomes that.
3. I put myself in a position where people depend on me (like hosting BiggerPockets).
A lot of people listen to BiggerPockets and there’s a lot of pressure in that. I don’t want to mess it up. By putting myself in this high-pressure situation every single day, it forces me to stay sharp, to keep learning, to keep growing, and to always be looking at where my competition is and try to make sure I’m a step ahead of them.
