One of my biggest student "pet peeve" questions I get is this one:
"What should I do -- what should I invest in -- to make fast money?"
"I don't know! How the hell should I know what you should do?" I know what I want to do and what interests ME...but I know NONE of those things about anybody else.
It's this lack of responsibility of taking life by the horns and making decisions that really gets under my skin.
And it's only going to get worse with our next generation.
I think everybody who knows me knows that I have a 12-year-old daughter. I'm pretty strict on her and I expect her to maintain a much greater level of responsibility than most people would for a 12-year-old.
Why do I do this?
Because in order for you to be "great" at anything, you only have to be 10% better than everyone else.
Considering the sea of near-deadbeats that are coming up through grade school, junior high and high school right now...even taking responsibility to be on time to school is 10% greater than what most kids would attempt to do on their own.
Unfortunately, my generation -- the Gen Xers -- are teaching Gen Ys some pretty freakin' bad habits that will ultimately bite them in the ass one day. Some of these Gen Xers think that being "more relaxed" and "laid back" with their kids (than their parents obviously were with them) is better somehow.
Well...better in the sense that if they want a pot-smoking video-game-playing loser dwelling in their basement at the age of 53, then I guess these Gen Xers are on the right path.
Except I don't want that with my daughter.
My parents were hippies from the 60s. I grew up as a vegetarian with a religion called Kriya Yoga. They wanted to be so far from "status quo" as possible that it's surprising I have any bearings in the world of capitalism. (I guess a cat always lands on her feet!)
I think the only thing that gave me a radar for entrepreneurialism was my dad who always kept hustling. He was always a small business owner, did fairly well for a middle-class breadwinner, and was always working.
And that's exactly what my daughter gets to see.
Just yesterday she said, "Mom, thank you for working so hard for me."
Yes! It's sinking in!!
The best thing about all of these little things I have her do is not that she does them perfectly each time (because she does) but that she understands a sense of responsibility and commitment to "processes" in general.
I feel like most people have difficulty in finding their way through life financially (and in many other ways). You can't blame your parents...even if it's really their fault. You now have to take responsibility yourself. Time to put your big kid pants on and grow up.
Just like I teach my daughter the psychology behind taking care of herself, I teach my students the exact same valuable lessons they can immediately use to change their lives.
Your only "hump" to get over is your mind and whether you'll pull the trigger (or not). That's the part I cannot do for you. All I can do is give you the strategies and techniques in the most precise step-by-step fashion and it's up to you to follow it.
As you know, I've recently finished my Key West Retreat where I did a two-day Money Funnel Traffic Workshop that was pretty powerful.
And now I'm doing something else that's EVEN MORE POWERFUL AND PROFITABLE than that!
