Did you know that less than 1% of the population are millionaires, and .0000271846% of the world’s population are billionaires?
However, despite that fact nearly 75% of Instagram Influencers still manage to have 7-figure businesses.
Did you know that 80% of new businesses will fail within 5 years?
However, despite that, if you just buy that online course you saw on Facebook, your chance of success increases to over 200%?
Did you know that it is mathematically impossible for everyone to succeed in our society? There simply aren’t enough spots at the top and the jobs at the bottom don’t pay all that well. What’s worse, do you realize how many people are locked out of upward class mobility and opportunity because of the color of their skin, the sound of their name, their credit score, the school they went to, who their daddy isn’t, a criminal record…or countless other reasons?
However, did you know that you can do it, no matter who you are, if you set your mind to it, eliminate distractions, suffocate excuses, take no prisoners, put your heart into it, do what you’re afraid to do, confront your fears, listen to your gut, play to win, take accountability for your life, start today–if you can’t start yesterday–and never give up on your dreams? 🤢
In case it’s not obvious, I’m being sarcastic here. Most of those Instagram influencers rented that car (on credit), the person who is selling that online course may have only sold precisely 7 licenses and is late on their rent, and all the motivational hustle porn in the world will not change the reality that there is limited space for everyone to lead a financially successful existence.
Energy & Attraction
Have you heard of The Law of Attraction? Yeah, me too. Let me explain.
People don’t generally like to be around assholes. So, don’t be one and it’s more likely others will want to be around you. In fact, if you’re kind and generous, you’ll probably have more friends and fruitful relationships than if you’re a jerk. The energy you bring into your interactions with others will be a contributing factor that shapes the results you get from those interactions.
Likewise, hard work is a more effective strategy than laziness. It’s not a guarantee no matter how much you believe it, but it’s giving you a better shot at attracting success than you’ll get by sitting on your couch eating popcorn.
Here’s the truth about all that…
This isn’t quantum physics, it’s common sense. There’s no secret here. There’s nothing supernatural about it. You’re not vibrating.
Anyone that wants you to believe something supernatural is going on, or too freely uses the word quantum in a sentence, is likely profiting off of your willingness to believe. If they’re not then they’ve probably been making someone else rich with their willingness to believe.
Good Diet & Exercise
One quick way to tell the difference between someone reputable and a hack is by taking note of who has the easy answers.
It would be so nice to believe that if I just drank all this juice for a week, I could drop my weight and keep it off. The real answer is a slow and steady journey of eating healthy and exercising.
It would be so nice if I could make more money by just believing I’ll be rich and attracting it, or even better, buying this 13-year old’s course on Forex and cryptocurrency. The answer is sufficiently more complex than that and often not available to everyone.
The magic tonic may seem too good to be true, but you think: “what if it works?! Then I wouldn’t have to do all that work.”
I’d like to suggest something more practical than trying to turn yourself into a quantum magnet and then beating yourself up for not “willing it into existence” hard enough.
Let me preface with a few things…
- I don’t have all of the answers.
- I don’t have a course for you to buy for what I’m about to tell you.
- I do not have any magic beans and I’m not your guru.
What I do have, is a framework that I have found exceptionally useful and effective.
It’s not perfect. It’s not always fast acting. However, when applied even in the slightest, it will help anyone get better than they are today.
No matter what your life looks like now, if you want to have an even better and more satisfying life, focus your time, energy, and attention on the following five skills:
- Realizing (Productivity / getting things done)
The framework is designed around a simple premise: growth is a process and it doesn’t take place in isolation. You have to put ideas into action, and you are not an island in this world, you are part of a society. As you get better in each of these five areas, you will unlock more and more of your potential.
Try it out, and if it works for you, tell someone else about it…not because I want to be famous, but because it would make me really happy to help create a world with more superheroes in it. With enough Superheroes, maybe we won’t need the charlatans anymore.
