Does This Sound Like You?

I used to spend what seemed like forever
dreaming of what I thought would be huge

I’d spend all day practicing my script for
recruiting leads and get excited about the
huge team I’d one day have.

I’d plan how I was going to make it happen,
put my plan to action, and nothing happened.

More money spent, no more money made, people
telling me to get a real job and quit
bothering them, and no one joined my

I went to a place of complete self doubt. I
couldn’t see the good things. I could only
hear the negative things in my mind.

“This didn’t work.”
“It’s my fault”
“I’m so stupid”
“Nothing I try ever works”
“Why’s it so easy for them, but not for me?”
“Why can’t I make it work?”
“They’re right, I’m a complete failure.”

I couldn’t see the way out. I was completely
overwhelmed with how bad I was, and how much
worse my situation was going to get.

It felt like everything in my life was heavy.
I didn’t have any energy.

I’d think about new things to do, but when it
came time to do them I couldn’t get myself to
move forward because all I could think about
was how bad I was and how whatever I tried
would never work.

I don’t know if this has happened to you, but
for me it was a place of complete despair and

I was blocking any and all success in my life
with my negative thoughts.

Eventually, I stopped practicing my script, I
stopped calling the leads I was paying for,
and I lost all hope. I stopped doing
everything and I couldn’t see a way out.

I did make it out alive, but it wasn’t until
I stopped. I got all the negative influence
out of my life (including my father), and
regained my hope a little bit at a time.

The same thing is possible for you if you’ve
been where I’ve been or if you feel like
you’re on the path to where I was.

The deeper the despair the greater the
success, so no matter how bad you think
things are or could get, understand that
there is an equally high level ready and
waiting for you.

And it’s more about what you think, then
the reality of what’s going on around you.
