Having a Hard Time? Do This.

If you’re having a hard time in life right now, maybe you’re broke and don’t have any money, maybe your girlfriend or boyfriend dumped you, you’ve lost your job—whatever it is—know that it can get worse. I know from personal experience. If you’re having a hard time now, it can get worse. That’s why I want to steer you in the right direction today because if you keep feeling sorry for yourself, it’s going to get worse. Having self-pity will never improve your situation, it will only worsen it.

With the prevalence of “experts” on the internet—whether on YouTube, Instagram, SnapChat, or Facebook—there are a plethora of people who can make cute quotes and memes. You know who I’m talking about, these people knock off Abraham Lincoln’s quotes and take credit for them. There’s no shortage of people out there saying it’s going to be easy for you to be successful.

Look, it’s not going to be easy.

Turning your life around is not going to be a piece of cake. The advice you’re getting online is with people telling you garbage like this:

“You can be traveling all around the world.” All you have to do is take this course.

“You can become an instant star online.” All you have to do is start posting pics of yourself with cars.

There are no 5 step programs that will allow you to travel the world while being an Instagram star—but you keep saying to yourself, “why can’t I make it when all these other people are making it?”

#1 You don’t know if others are making it. You don’t know how financially successful they really are. The real-deal life is about living it, not posting it.

#2 You have to get a good job. How do you get a good job? You get good at the job you’re at.

#3 If you have drug or alcohol problems you’re going to have to take care of that. Sorry, there’s no getting around that. If you have the wrong friends around you then you need to get rid of them.

#4 Pay attention to yourself. If you get a little bit of money put it away. Keep getting better. If you ice skate and all you do is fall, you’re going to hate ice skating. Why would it be any different with work? You need to start winning. If you work for someone else, keep working for them and get better. Any improvement you make will cause you to feel better about you, let alone any income increases.

Nobody is pulling against you, except for yourself. It’s not the government, there’s no conspiracy. Personally, I lost the first 5 jobs I ever had and I deserved to lose them before I actually got canned. The more educated I got the more broke I seemed to be. I was the black sheep in my family and I didn’t even like myself.

The fact that I felt sorry for myself didn’t change anything, nor did blaming others for my lot in life improve my situation.

It was probably a benefit for me that when I was 25 there was no internet. I would have been listening to all those people online telling me how I could quickly become an online star and make millions. The only thing available to me back then in the early 1980’s was work. I had to take a sucky job and make the most of it. I had to hit the phones and do whatever it took to put some money together.

You don’t need to go back to college.

You don’t need another degree. Some of you have so many degrees you could be a thermometer. What you need are simple skills that you can monetize. Most people overlook the kinds of things I teach, but most people overlook and underestimate a lot of things.

So, drop the get-rich-quick thing. It’s not going to be easy. Drop the excuses and the blame. You have to do something today to monetize by bringing value to the marketplace. I can help you this.

You got social media stars online dropping F-Bombs telling you to not do anything you don’t want to do.

You got people telling you not to do the things you’re not good at. Well, you might not good at anything right now. Let’s get real. There was a time in my life where I wasn’t good at anything. Everyone has to start from somewhere. You get great by getting one little skill at a time.

Just because there’s a guy or two who can get away with dropping F-bombs in every sentence, cussing their way to success, doesn’t mean you can. If you’re impressed by F-Bombs, great, but it’s not going to make you any money.

You will need to do stuff you don’t want to do.
