A Simple Meaningful Conversation That Will Help Me Reach My Desired Life Faster (Copy My Exact Strategy for Similar Results)
I had a conversation today with a guy that is 40 years old and living the life that I desire from a financial standpoint.
My ultimate goal is by 40 years to be independent of working for anyone else and just working for me. And to be able to decide what I focus on not based on money but because I choose to.
So at least I thought our conversation was going to be about government contracts and AI. But we got to talking and sharing our upbringing and life challenges.
He grew up poor, with a single mother and didn't learn English until he was 7 years old. He's able to speak, write and command the Vietnamese language at a PHD level. And now he is currently working on his PHD but it is all in English language.
He was able to retire and live the "dream life" everyone hopes retirement brings them. The sad truth is most will not make it, many will die before it.
That "dream life" of being retired and doing whatever you want only last a short while. You have to find something that will fuel your ambition and desires.
My friend was offered $250,000 worth of profits to stay on with a company that he just consulted for and helped them to make $75,000 monthly. Before they were burning money and were in the negative $25,000 monthly if my memory serves me right.
After getting that offer he hung up the phone call and went right back to playing an cell phone online game. At that moment he knew he had to channel his addictive ambitious itch to something else.
Which he certainly did. He got out of retirement and went back to working for himself. Money is just a number in the bank account for him. And he just loves connecting with us and spending his time with contenders not pretenders.
As a result we will be meeting once a week to talk and for me to have an accountability partner. I believe this will skyrocket my growth and what I get done.
I am a contender!
The main takeaway here is 2 things…
1. Find someone doing what you want to do and ask them how they got there. Share with them your plan to how you want to get to their point. They will be able to give you invaluable resources and insights. Not to mention but some people are scared to give all the sauces and secrets.
2. Accountability is your secret weapon to rapid growth and commitment. Knowing you have someone to answer to and must share your results weekly gives you the needed push to get shit done.
I hope you get out here and go find that person that's living their life that you want. Now of course make sure that they can back up the lifestyle and it's not just fabricated. Once you find that person make sure that you do whatever you can to get even an hour two of their time.
That's all you need.
Untill tomorrow my brother...
