TRUE STORY –
When I was fresh out of school, I visited as many docs as I could. I wanted to know what to do and how to do it to become successful fast.
One of the doctors that I visited actually told me not to open my own practice! He was very down on the profession and self admittedly not very happy. He said that it was too hard and that the effort was not worth the small payoff. The guy made less than 6 figures per year.
His advice was some of the best I ever had. After talking with him, I knew exactly what I wouldn’t do…
Don’t waist your time on negative energy!!
This guy was so wrapped up feeling sorry for himself, and so busy telling himself how hard success was. He literally talked himself out of it. I made more than 6 figures in my first year. It is not hard. It can be achieved if you work hard and stay positive.
The bottom line –
Avoid the people in your life who tell you “It’s too hard, you can’t do it, or it’s not fair.” Stay away from the time suckers, energy leechers, and other negative influences like they are the plague. Develop relationships with positive, happy, influential, and successful minded people. Your mom and dad were right (assuming you didn’t grow up in dysfunctional family that is) – You are who you hang out with!
