"It is well" in the words of my best friend for the 2 years right after my high school days that I was home in Nigeria before my father decided to let me come to the United States for higher education. IMPORTANT: READ EVERY WORD!
We did everything together, rented movies together, visit each other all day, lived on the same block from 1995 – 1998.
This story is way connected to your "mlm business, affiliate marketing business" or whatever your goal is more than you can imagine and you will find out in a minute why. Therefore pay complete attention here for 2 minutes.
My friend passed on 2 days ago. He was about 33/34 years old and it is just painful to wonder what his family is going through right now.
This was a guy who had literally gone all out on what he was very PASSIONATE about. Even though that can’t be compared to the fact that he passed "waaayyy too soon," I am very happy to see people go after and fight hard for ANYTHING they are passionate about.
He was a read-aholic. He read and studied everything within his reach. I remember he was totally ok with being in the house by himself for a week as long as he had enough novels (big a$$ novels too) and books to attack.
So… by 2 days ago when he passed, I heard he was 2 weeks away from finishing his Doctorate degree in Finland, Europe. Some will consider that a losing battle but they are wrong let me explain…
There is no such thing as an "I’ve arrived" destination. Mankind always want more.. ya know as in "Oliver Twist". The joy is in the journey for people that pursues their passion. In other words, if you are going after a career of goal right now and the process makes your life suck get out of it IMMEDIATELY.
The same thing applies to whether you are grinding a job or grinding a business. If you are building a business and you are not having fun, something is wrong and you must change it immediately.
Likewise if you have your job and you are not doing anything that will get you out of it as soon as possible, that’s SAD. The destination and joy is the journey. Challenge yourself today to get on the path that will make you feel fullied.
This is what it means when you hear the phrase, "Get rich or die trying…" If you die trying to achieve your goals, then you lived well. If you die like most people do wondering "what coulda, shoulda, woulda" if you had given yourself a shot , my friend that sucks.
So I encourage you, if you are passionate about…
- Firing your boss or
- Having abundance in freedom of time and money
… get on the journey "hardcore" without looking at the watch so much for when you’ll get there.
If you are reading this, chances are you are in the right place already and closer than you might think so be EXCITED. You are RIGHT NOW fulfilling your dreams while others wind precious time away. Be grateful that you are one of the privileged.
