Today a lot of people are celebrating “420”, especially out there in Colorado where there are more marijuana dispensaries than Starbucks and McDonalds locations combined. I personally started smoking weed at the age of 16. This was back in the 70’s when no state had legalized pot. Today 1 in 5 Americans now live in a state where marijuana is legal, and it’s going to be a $20-billion industry soon.
Marijuana itself does not lead a person to other drugs: people take drugs to get rid of unwanted situations or feelings. The drug (marijuana) masks the problem for a time (while the user is high). When the “high” fades, the problem, unwanted condition or situation returns more intensely than before. The user may then turn to stronger drugs since marijuana no longer “works.”
When I was a teenager, I wasn’t necessarily lazy or unmotivated; I simply didn’t have the proper direction and was being misinformed about how to attack life. You know you don’t need to grow old to be dead. I was dying at the age of 20 as a result of no direction and no purpose. At that time, I couldn’t hold a job and had surrounded myself with losers, and weed was a big part of my life. I was expending a lot of energy with marijuana and it shouldn’t have received any of my attention—it’s a useless activity.
I finally quit using marijuana when I was 25 years old and it was the most impactful decision to creating success in my life.
Forget the damaging ideas of weed, just the time I was able to pour into my business that I had previously wasted finding, rolling and smoking.
Read these short term effects of smoking weed and tell me how any of this will help you increase your income:
Loss of coordination
Reddening of the eyes
Distortions in the sense of time, vision, and hearing
Cannabis is #3 of the top five substances which account for admissions to drug treatment facilities in the United States, and according to a National Household Survey on Drug Abuse, kids who frequently use marijuana are almost four times more likely to act violently or damage property and five times more likely to steal than those who do not use the drug*.
If you are in business and smoking weed, I will kill you in the market every time unless the customer also uses the sticky-icky. If you are focused on your own production and creating your own success, there should be no time for 420.
Drop the weed and try and hit new levels of success.
Avoid drugs and alcohol because of the negative influence they have on your mind. They make you lethargic, slow, and not sure! Control your attitude by being aware and alert, not by being drugged and numbed.
