1. Your goals are unreasonable.  I don’t want you to end up being disappointed.

And here it is.  The big one.  The number one thought we are brainwashed from birth to have!  This thought is the major reason why we limit ourselves.  It is the major reason why we never reach our full potential.  And it is the reason why we are disappointed in life.

If there is one thought you decide to correct within these top ten, make it this one!  There is no such thing as an unreasonable goal set too high.  That is absolutely ridiculous!  When you set your goals high, you work harder, longer, and with more enthusiasm to reach that goal.

This is the reality: whether you set your goal below your expectations, or set them higher than you could ever imagine, you will probably not reach either goal.  However, when you set your goal as high as you can, you end up accomplishing much more than if you were to set a goal with intentionally lower expectations to avoid disappointment.  If you don’t reach either goal, which goal would you rather fall short of.  The goal that is set near impossible expectations, or the goal that you know you can accomplish.  If I set a goal I knew was possible to accomplish and then did not reach that goal, I would be much more disappointed than if I failed to reach a goal that was set to touch the sky.

We must move away from everything everyone has ever told us about setting goals.  Goals need to be realistic.  Not at all, set them as high as you like and work toward it every day.  You will never know your true potential until you do.  Set a time limit on your goals.  No way.  Your goals should give you such motivation that you wake up every day wanting to achieve them, no matter how long it takes.  And when you reach that goal, set it even higher.  When you work toward something out of reach, it motivates you to work harder than you would normally work for something that you know is achievable.  Don’t be afraid of failure, be afraid of not fulfilling your potential.

When people tell you “I don’t want you to be disappointed” it usually means, “slow down buddy, you are working way too hard for me to keep up with.”  You aren’t living to stay at an even pace as your friend.  You’re living to fulfill your potential.  You will not achieve true success until you do.  Truly successful people stick to their goals, despite what others advise, the opposition they come up against, and the criticism they receive for their commitment to fulfill their potential.  Don’t let others influence what you do in your lifetime.  Live your life for you and your family, and attain the success you deserve!


Be A Young Hustler, Go Out There And Take Action

It’s a little after 4:30 am and I am up ready kick off my day and ACT.  I woke up, read my personal mission statement and enjoying a quiet breakfast.  It’s a good morning.  Something good is going to happen today, I can feel it…

I’m sure you guys are familiar with many of the following phrases:

“There aren’t enough hours in the day”

“So much to do, so little time”

“I just don’t have enough time”

And there are many more.  I’m sure a lot of you have used these very same phrases. I know I have.   But the GREAT news is that you can stop using these kinds of phrases because they are just excuses.  

The word “excuse” is a noun meaning “a reason or explanation put forward to defend or justify a fault or offense” or as a verb, “release someone (in this case, meaning yourself) from a duty or requirement.  

There is absolutely NO reason to defendfault.  That is what lazy people do.  If you wish to succeed, you act on your fault.  Act so much that you in turn change your fault so there is no longer any existence of a fault.  That’s right, action literally makes your faults disappear. 

What would you do if you had no faults? Impossible? Nah. You just aren’t taking enough action!  In his book, The TenX Rule, Grant Cardone (@GrantCardone) powerfully states, “Any person who uses blame as the reason why something happened or did not happen will not accumulate real success in their life, and only will further his or her status as a slave on planet earth.”

That’s heavy that quote a couple times and really let it sink in.  There are two simple choices you have in life: to act or to make an excuse.  They both take the same amount of energy to do.  They both affect your life, family, friends, etc.  They both define your level of success.  They both define you as a person.

So which will you choose?  I hope you will join the movement to be a Young Hustler and get out there and ACT.  Success is waiting for you at the finish line; you get there by taking action that “everybody else” refuses to do, and by putting in more time, more heart, more everything than anyone else, and you have a golden path to the finish line.

Change your mindset and habits now.  Make the conscious decision as Grant Cardone encourages, “to make success your duty, obligation, and responsibility.”  Success is no longer an option, it is now your ethical responsibility. SO GET UP AND ACT, THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU!

Countdown To Success

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve” ~Napoleon Hill

I am a 21 year old female hustler, ready for action.  But what action?

I have many goals in my life, some short-term, some long, some easily attainable, other nearly impossible.

To understand my success story, you must first understand my goals.  Many of these goals will change depending on what is going on in my life.  But I can guarantee that I will NEVER, I repeat, NEVER(!) lessen the attainment of my goals.

I set 10X goals.  What are 10X goals? Self-made man Grant Cardone (@GrantCardone) has written many books vital to success. Because of Grant Cardone’s book, The TenX Rule, I became motivated to do something with my life and set far-reaching goals for myself.  The major principle behind The TenX Rule (you can expect a post reviewing this amazing book shortly!) is to change your mindset and your level of action so that you operate on a 10X level.  A 10X level includes taking 10X the action than you think is necessary to accomplish something and having expectations that are 10X the ones you think you need to complete a task.  Grant Cardone stresses, you will never reach your full potential if you limit your mindset and actions; the greatest you will ever achieve is average.  

I plan to post a separate post outlining all my current goals, but this blog is about one goal in particular.  This is where the countdown begins. Where the high expectations begin.  Where the massive amount of action in pursuit of my goal begins:

1,825 days, 11 hours, 1 minute, 59 seconds

This is my countdown for achieving my ultimate goal: I own and operate a profitable drinking establishment with my dad before I turn 26 years old. 

This is it.  This is where all of my energy will be poured into over the next 4-5 years.  I will pay off my college debt before starting my own business and have capital saved up to reinvest in myself and my dad to make this business a reality.  I have been dreaming about this for a long time now and I am finally ready to hustle nonstop until this dream comes true.

“Impossible,” “Too high of expectations,” you say? I refuse to hear, see, or deal with any negativity.  Do not tell me that my goals are out of reach, instead of acknowledging this comment, I plan to show you that the only limits one has are those that one places on oneself. It may not be easy, but I don’t see the value of living for anything that is easy to accomplish.  Follow my blog, and in the next 4-5 years, come to my bar and have a drink on me! I’m guaranteeing this right now: I will personally invite anyone who follows my blog for a drink on me at my bar the day it opens.
