Most people think in plurals…

They think & do what the masses are doing.

But you to work in singles…

It’s the 1%…

doing the shit that few are willing to do.

So when you’re frustrated…

when you’re fatigued…

When it just seems like it’s not working for you, just ask, “Am I doing what everyone else is doing?”

Or are you doing what the few are doing?

See the singles are the ones that are getting up before anyone else.

The singles are the ones who say, “Y’all go ahead & go party, I got work to do.”

The singles are working on their craft & their technique.

They’re reading, rehearsing, & reviewing.

The singles are the ones who are grabbing one more customer…

& making one more phone call, even though today’s results have been a disaster.

The singles are the ones who are running regardless of the weather.

Most won’t go today, but you’re one of few.

Singles…

Think & work in singles.

It’s elimination time.

Because most people can’t do what you’re willing to do without instant gratification.

They can’t hang.

Others will be quick to tell you, Here’s an easier way…Here’s a hack…Here’s a quick cheat that no one will notice!

And you say, “Nah, I got it. I’ll stay single.”

We’ve all said those words…

It’s funny that those are the exact same words that massively successful people say too..

They didn’t initially know what they were doing,

…but they knew where they were going.

They were determined to make it work…they were sure to be a success…they were adamant about changing the game.

So they headed in that mental direction & picked up lessons, skills, connections, and ultra success along the way.


I don’t know what to do…

I don’t know what to do, is not the same as I don’t know what I’m doing.

What to do…means to quit before you even get started. You’re waiting on Perfect….perfect time & conditions- then you’ll do.

But …what I’m doing…is just taking action. It’s being bold enough to kick along, push forward, & figure it out as you go.

Because nobody fully knows what to do...but few are bold enough to push off & say,I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’ll fucking figure it out.”

Don’t get paralyzed in what to do.

You’ll forever be standing there in a heap of regrets.

If you know where you want to go, head in that direction & start doing. Next will be there waiting for you.

Oh you don’t lack for If’s…

…if you had $ for the number of if’s you told yourself, you’d have problems, but money wouldn’t be one of them.

If I was a different race.

If I was taller.

If I was a starter.

If I was a baller.

If I was running a store.

If I was the CEO.

If I could get the loan.

If I could start my business.

If I wouldn’t have married him or had children with her.

Oh we If ourselves to death…

When what you need to do is how yourself to life.

if is all bullshit anyway.

Because you can’t, if you’re self taller.

You can’t if yourself a different skin color.

You can’t if yourself to have wealthy parents, nor be first cousins to Warren Buffett, or be Kim Kardashian’s sister.

When if kicks in, slap it down with a how

How can I use what I have right now?

Because how is all you’ve got.

You have unique advantages, but you’re so fixated on other people’s advantages that you’re blinded with if’s.

You say, “If I could have what they have, I’d be better off.”

It’s all bullshit.

Just ask yourself how…

How can I use what I’ve got, leverage it, & then grow it.

Start with what you have.

Use it.

And then begin to leverage it.

And if you don’t know how to leverage it…if you don’t know how to position your current advantages…

Then see Step 1…

Just use what you’ve got…

& along the way, you’ll figure out how to position it…then grow it.

Compound it by developing the skills, techniques, and education that you need to grow and evolve.

Educate yourself…be a sponge…ask questions…volunteer for the grunt work…

It doesn’t have to come from a classroom.

People do that…

They stall so they don’t have to take action (& probably fail)…

They rack up the loans thinking they have to sit idly in a classroom & have someone pour information into them.

You don’t need money…you need commitment.

Stop if’ing around & start how’ing.

How can I use what I have, leverage it, and then start growing that shit.

~become your own action figure. Stop waiting for perfect or thinking it’s too late. You got to-day so get started.

Poker players will tell you the only way to learn poker, is to play poker.

You can read all of the books…& even watch hours and hours of video…

…but you won’t learn the game until you sit at the table and play the game.

That’s the only way you can pay your dues…

…is when you push off and do.

You want to start working out?

Dues are in the do…

Lose weight?

Dues are in the do…

Start a podcast?

Dues are in the do…

Write a book?

Dues are in the do…

Start a business, become a better salesperson, have thriving relationship…

Turn your whole fucking life around?

Dues are in the do…

You gotta pay your dues.

And the only currency that is accepted is in the do.

No more books. No more Somedays, Mondays, starting next month, or January 1rst…

Pay yourself…

There’s an old saying that says, “Sometimes you have to carry your own canteen,” meaning you have to carry and handle your own situation, your own struggles… & handle your own slumps.

And it’s not that it’s you against the world, but it’s you against you…of old.

If you want a new you…

then you’ve got to stop letting others carry your burdens and give you a victim pass.

Now you have to figure it out…shoulder your own load…carry your own canteen.

And don’t be mad at others…nor yourself….

Woulda…shoulda is powerless…

Gonna is the question.

What are you gonna do?

People can help you along the way, but they can no longer do it or excuse it for you.

The only way out is through…you.

Tim Storey’s advice on work ethic and success begins with a proverb…

 He who chases fantasies will lack wisdom, but he who works his land will have abundance.

When people come up to Storey, frustrated that it’s not happening fast enough…

…feel that they’re stuck in life…

or that the Too’s are kicking in…

Too old…

Too young…

Too soon…

or that it’s Too late,

Storey tells them simply,

 “Go work your land.”

Your land is what’s right in front of you.

Whether you’re in junior high, a janitor, a salesperson, or a bottom rung manager, go work your land.

You wouldn’t look out over 50 acres expecting to see corn knowing that you didn’t plant any…

You can’t expect your seeds to take root without busting up the ground…

It’s in the digging-turning what’s been packed down for years…

It’s in planting not knowing precisely when it’s going to sprout…

It’s in the watering.

Watering for you is the reps…

In his book, Arnold Schwarzenegger said the secret to his massive success is reps, reps, reps.

You won’t get any better until you first get worse.

Reps, reps, reps…

Every day you’re showing up…

Reps…watering… reps… digging…rep…plowing…planting…weeding…

Reps… working your land…

Working to become a pro…

Then one day…

You’ll see the harvest.

When is not your concern.

You’ve just got to go work your land…

Whatever land you got, go work the hell out of it.

Until…

Until you get a harvest.

And when you do, your harvest is going to be so abundant that you’re going to need more land.

Have an amazing day & life.

It can be really tough to put your best work out there…

…you finally worked up enough courage to publish your art -whether it’s a blog, book, writing, podcast, video, teaching a how-to skill, or starting your new business & somebody trolls along and instantly rips your hardest work to shreds with a thumbs down, shitty comments, or 1 star rating.

That shit hurts. You think to yourself, “All I’m trying to do is help…express…or share my struggles so others can work through their struggles too!

And in seconds they torch you…

When Gary Veynerchuk was asked how he deals with the haters (& he’s got plenty), he simply answers, “They don’t know me…”

Anyone can come at him on social media; anyone can say something mean, hurtful and negative. They can mock him & make videos about him.

And how does he deal with them?

He doesn’t…

Why put any weight into what other people say?

Why invest emotional currency into other people’s opinion of you?

Because the truth is, it’s got nothing to do with you…

And it’s got everything to do with them.

Their judgments say more about them and less about you.

You’re just a reflection of their unhappiness …

They see that you refused to accept that this is all there is in life…

They notice that you want demand something bigger from life…

Not only will you take your share but your unfair share because not everyone is bold enough to step to life’s table and expect more.

They see that you have grabbed life by the balls, and are willing to get out there and even get back up after you’ve stumbled.

People notice what you’re doing and see what they’re not.

Judging’s easy…doing is hard..

They don’t want to do the hard…

So they do what’s easy…

They judge you…

It’s easy to react at what you’re doing so as not to examine what they’re not.

They’re too busy finding your flaws instead of strengthening their faults.

Oh, and they give all kinds of excuses…

“Oh, he didn’t have to struggle like I did…

He didn’t come from the same rough neighborhood as I did…

He he didn’t have to deal with the same sort of issues that I did…

My mom and dad were never there-I had to raise myself & my siblings…

I don’t have that color skin, education, nor privileged life like they do..

There are many excuses why they can’t, when they only need one reason why they can…

You should be the example, but instead you’re their excuse.

They should look at you- even if they don’t all the way line up with everything that you say or do…

Hell, I don’t line up with everything Gary Vee says, but I admire what he’s doing. I admire that he’s willing to just keep coming at it. I admire that he’s willing to keep showing up.

Respect…

Respect the fact that you keep showing up & putting your shit out there…

& if they don’t respect it you should…

It’s got nothing to do with you, remember?

They don’t know you..

Because you barely even know yourself. (And I’m being generous here.)

You barely know you, so how in the hell can anybody else know you well enough to judge you?

Even your family members don’t even know you…

Your mom probably doesn’t know you, because you barely know you.

You’re discovering new things, capabilities, & capacities about yourself all the time.

And most of them aren’t discovered until you’ve failed!

Oh but people are quick to call you out on that, right?

They know things about you, but they don’t truly know you.

They’re trying to size you up…but how do you size anything up that’s not a finished product.

You’re a work in progress not regress…

So when somebody you know or don’t know comes along & tries to resurrect something that’s already happened…

Trent Shelton in his new book, The Greatest You, says when people come at him and they try to bring up his past he says,

You knew me, but you don’t know me.

Oh, all that you’re saying? That’s what you knew about me…

But that’s not what you know…

All they’re doing is rereading old, bad chapters aloud.

Those old chapters have no power over me because I own those chapters…

It’s only when you don’t own your old chapters will they have any power over you…

We’ve all got a past…

We’ve all got old chapters….

“But it was the old, bad chapters that led directly to the new chapters in my life,” Shelton said.

So when people come by, and they sit there and they try to reread the old chapters of your life..

Own it.

Yeah, that was me.

Use your old chapters as a measurement as to how far you’ve come.

Chapters in your ongoing narrative of life.

People stop writing their chapters because they fear being judged.

So they let others hold their pen.

Even if you worked a 9-5 job, stayed to yourself, worked & came straight home they’d still judge you.

So if they’re gonna judge no matter what, why not give them something massive to judge you by?

REALLY give them something to talk about.

Play big today and for the rest of your life.

Play so big & make such an impact that they’ll talk about you now and long after you’re gone.

Stay in The Sales Life 💪
