Recently I turned 26 and it dawned on me that my pursuit of success/wealth/the good life entered it’s 7th year. Had you asked me at 19 “will you have achieved the good life by 26?” I would have answered “Hell Yeah!” Which makes me ponder why I haven’t? And – What can I do to ensure I’m not thinking the same question in the following 7 years?
Doubt, uncertainty and frustration swill round my mind when I reflect on what I’ve achieved and use that as a template for the upcoming years. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. However, what I find remarkably fascinating is; I have only just stumbled upon this realisation.
What I also find frustrating and fascinating at the same time is my laziness. I’m not working anywhere near as hard as I used to, I also procrastinate more than ever. And yet the desire for the good life remains. What does this mean? I don’t know yet.
Maybe I have unrealistic expectations.
What I am certain of is this is a natural part of the process, I’m confident that most people reading this will have felt or will feel like this in pursuit of what they want. And as Jim Rohn would say; “Don’t wish for fewer problems wish for more skills”. I must become more to get more.
Another challenge I face is the abundance of opportunity knocking on my door;
- Online course
- Reach To Clean Franchises
- Social Media Marketing
- Stock Market
- Amazon FBA
I’m grateful for all the above, knowing where to start is the challenge, but I’m grateful for that too and all the other challenges I face.
I hope you’ve found value in this raw, unstructured post. My Key takeaway – I need direct access to a billionaire/millionaire mentor.
