1st skill to build in life? The ability to adapt quickly. The 2nd? How to read people to know who to filter out BEFORE they screw you over.
Bruce Lee was the master of adapting to his surroundings. He used to say: "Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend."
If I could be 18 again I wish someone had pounded into my head that stubbornness and being slow to adapt is probably the cause of more than 50% of our mistakes and pain.
Never get attached to your ideas. Just seek the truth no matter where it leads you.
People misunderstand focus creating reality. It's not like you can just think to yourself, "I have a $1 million dollars in my bank account" and it will magically appear
What I mean is that you have to start paying close attention to what smart people are doing to become financially independent
You have to focus on calling them, meeting them, reading about them, reverse engineering what they did
You can't be A.D.D. and not able to sit down with a notepad and go deep into your thoughts and map out a plan for action and actually execute
Focus is one of the most powerful forces on earth. And only 1 in a million actually has it. Go get it! @tengooseboxing_gym
There is a fine line you have to draw between being materialistic and being realistic and understanding human psychology
People definitely judge you quickly by how you are dressed. I've tested it and I think there is a real positive return on investment on buying nicer clothing
You don't have to go over board. Just do the best with the clothes you have. At least clean your shoes and iron your outfit
In fact my first breakthrough financially came when I just wore a hand-me-down suit from a thrift store for a first meeting with a mentor
I think the fact that I even tried to look professional contributed to that mentor Mike Stainback deciding to help me and me going from zero dollars to making real money.
It's not just planning. It's not just doing. It's a combination of both that you need. So many people just do one or the other. They work hard and hustle but they have no plan so they run around like a chicken with their head cut off. Others only plan and get paralysis by over analysis and forget to execute. Learn how to merge both sides into one strategy and you will do great things on Earth.
So many people ask me if they should go to college or not. But basically that's missing the point. Your life quality is not determined by what you learn in four years. So you can go to college if you want. It's fine. But what about after you graduate? It's lifelong learners that win in the game of life. Like Jim Rohn said, "A formal education will make you a living. But self education can make you a fortune."
