If you’re looking at me and thinking, “It’s okay for you, you don’t have to focus on the money!”
Then I can tell you that you are stuck on the money – but I get it. We all have been in that place, and it is a hard place to be.
The reality of my life, is that truthfully it’s far from sunshine, roses, and buttercups.
I’ve lost everything three times as an entrepreneur, so I know what it’s like to be hitting the reset button and starting from zero. Not fun, and not my happy place.
I know what it’s like to not know where my next meal is coming from or how I’m going to pay the rent. I know what it’s like to be hungry for two days. I know what it’s like, I’ve been there.
So my advice to someone who’s in that situation, and again I know it’s bittersweet because I know how hard it is not to focus on the money when it’s needed.
But one of the things that you’ve got to understand that when you have nothing you have nothing to lose – and that is a powerful place.
See, one of the things that limits people’s potential is fear.
Oftentimes people aren’t afraid of what they’re going to get, they’re afraid of what they’re going to lose.
They’re afraid of the mistakes that they’re going to make, and when you have nothing, you literally are the blankest blank canvas that you can be, and you can literally just paint anything you want.
And the cool thing is, if you lose it all again, well then you can just start again.
