Many people will make excuses or they let their ego and fear get in the way, they self-sabotage. It’s all the reasons you don’t need it or who are you to have it. You have enough right now. Why do I need more, or the ultimate rationalization, it’s just not for me.
I encourage you to question everything. Our programming runs 95% of what we do every day. Only 5% of what we do is strategy. The majority of what you do throughout the day was placed in your subconscious by the time you were 7 years old. The environment you grew up in shaped who you are today.
Take a new computer, for example. When you turn it on, it doesn’t have all the downloads and programs you need to make it run effectively. You need to download all the ‘stuff’ onto the hard drive.
If you think of your mind that way, what’s downloaded into your subconscious is no longer serving you. It is an outdated program. The good news is there is a process to switch out the downloaded information.
The reason I had to make a major reset four times in the last 10 years was because I knew I would not get where I wanted to go from my current programming. If your goal is worthy enough of you and if it’s big enough and you don’t know how it will happen. You only know you want it and you desire it.

So what do you need to do to change? Be mindful of who you’re around and who you’re listening to. We often take advice from our family and friends. We go to the same friends we probably have known for years, or our family members. Look at who you get your advice from. If it’s not from someone who’s done exactly what you intend to do or want to do, stop asking them for advice. If your parents are telling you how to make money or what job to have and they’ve done nothing of real consequence, or made a lot of money and that’s what you want to do, you’re asking the wrong person.
Closing that information gap is a great place to start. The good news is we are in one of the most powerful times of the information age. You can go to YouTube and listen to dozens of people who are doing something of major consequence, that have and are going places. People who have come from nothing to creating a life they never imagined they could have. They are continuing to succeed and surround themselves with other people that are like them or doing far better than them.
You have access to people like that, and you don’t have to pay a thing for all the knowledge you need. If you aimlessly and mindlessly scroll on social media or watch TikTok or Snapchat or Instagram or Facebook and just scroll watching and reading things that are not adding any value to your life, STOP IT!
If you took 10 minutes a day and searched up a topic or someone that’s doing something that interests you, that will help you grow and started watching those videos, I can
