How many times do we hear people complain about a job, relationship, a situation that “always happens” to them?
What you continue to tolerate, you WILL continue to receive!! .
Tolerate your house being messy? It will continue to be messy! .
Tolerate being uncomfortable in pants that don’t fit?? You’ll continue to feel uncomfortable in poor fitting pants.
Tolerate getting yelled at? You’ll continue to get yelled at.
Tolerate being used by others? They will continue to use you!!!
Only YOU can set the standard for your life. Set your standards HIGH and allow for the world around you to elevate to them. .
It might be uncomfortable and scary to change your standards. It may require physical work, mental exercise, speaking up, putting down the French fries, and even losing some “friends”. Tough stuff...but you CAN do it! .
Know your WORTH and act like it!! ❤️
Yes! Winners never quit. Quitters never win. Get back on the grind.
Have you put in the adequate work required to bring your dream to Fruition? .
What are you spending 85 percent of your time on? .
Are you feeling overwhelmed with so much to do, that you spend little time on what’s important? .
My mentor Paul Martinelli puts it nicely. Analyse your to do list and categorize it into 3 sections - Do it! Delegate it! Dump it! .
That’s how you get productive. .

I said this in 2017.
But let me tell you why— Defined Benefit provided that retirees received, after working for a company for x number of years, a “defined” amount of money (benefit) in retirement (AKA a pension). The employer was responsible for the investment decisions of the plan and most importantly, the risk of loss. In other words, if the plan lost money it was the responsibility of the employer to deal with the shortfall.
In the early 1980s, the 401(k) was born. It is a defined contribution plan, meaning the employee contributes a defined amount (dictated by the tax code) and the employee also deals with the risk of loss in the plan. In other words, there’s no safety net.
Looking back, one of my favorite (but also unsexy jobs) at Merrill Lynch was working the phones for 401(k) plans. I learned the rules of 401(k) plans inside and out and now I have the opportunity to share them with you. I’m hosting 3 Secrets of Mastering Retirement — Thursday, February 28th at 8:30 pm EST. **Link in Bio** Hope you have you on!

Sometimes you have to just put your head down and push past the BS you feed yourself!
Do you think for one second, I would be where I am today had I gave in to my feelings of unworthiness that would creep in from my past?
Hell freaking NO!! In fact, to be honest, some of it still seeps in, if I’m not careful!
See, you think I get up and push play every single day for my outward appearance? Your wrong!
Don’t get me wrong, it feels wonderful to sustain a healthy lifestyle!
But, it certainly wouldn’t be wonderful if my mind still listened to the BS, that used to run rapid, when I wasn’t paying attention!
We are no different! In fact, the only difference is your story is your own and your BS may be something different!
But I guarantee you, if you stop selling yourself short and just follow through 💯, that uncomfortable feeling will be your friend!
Some guys don't even know how to disguise their true intentions. The number 1 Jedi is, "We're grown, we can talk about sex." Which is true, but if that's all you can talk about, relate to, or are concerned about then that's your tell. YES, I have had women like this as well. It's not gender based. It's a person's reality being shown, and sometimes sugar coated to look normal. I might not be uncomfortable, but my insight to you is A LOT DIFFERENT....
