How to live, laugh and dream?
There was once a time a guidance counselor told me back in high school:
“If you work hard, stay in school, get into a good University… you will be happy”
Let that sit for a moment…
To Live, Laugh and Dream Means What?
I was the basic kid who had basic dreams
1) Never have to work
2) Never have an alarm wake me up
3) Never be told what to do
4) Have all of the free time, all the time
5) Enjoy my free time with sports, videogames, movies (who would have thought I would be on a tv in a public area like a motorcoach?)
6) Never have to be somewhere
7) Never have someone control me
and have all the money I want to buy whatever
Now being 35, married, and with 3 kids my eyes have been opened.
I was told that only true happiness came from working hard for someone else…
I accepted it.. never questioned it.
I mean why?
Everyone in my class just followed the rules…
Until high school when my “entrepreneur” friends of mine got sick of school and couldn’t take the
– forced structure
– alarm clocks
– restrictions on where you can be
– not having any money
Many of my school friends (the ones who stayed in school) thought my other friends (the ones who dropped out of high school) were crazy.
To some extent yes… in another no.
I’m a FIRM believer of education.
I believe your true potential is found when someone with more knowledge can guide/direct you to it.
I’m NOT a fan of giving up but what if the “SYSTEM” is flawed?
What if working 40 years until you retire only to find out you HAVE no retirement is NOT a good deal?
I mean let’s look at it like this.
Since when is the MUSCLE more important than your MIND.
What I mean is….
In our society you are expected to GRIND out your years and wait to retire vs allowing you to USE your mind to lead you to freedom and do what you want to do so you can really live, laugh and dream what you want and when you want and how you want.
Let’s just be really blunt about this.
What Does It Take To Really Live, Laugh and Dream?
What kind of income would you need to have every single month for you to DO what you REALLY want to do?
– be a dance instructor
– be an art teacher
– build a church
– kick it with your parents
– design skateboards
– paint for a living
– read comic books everyday
– be a Foodie
– be a gardener
– surf the oceans of the world
– professional parent (full time parent)
– care for the elderly
– play on Facebook
basically ANYTHING you wanted to do but didn’t know how you were going to get paid doing it or make enough money on the side to sustain your hobbies/dream/purpose.
If you were to tell your high school/college guidance counselor that you want to eat food and write reviews on them….
that you have a passion for oil based painting,
that you really like skate boarding,
that you really would love to play video games all day,
that you want to be a race car driver,
that you want to just travel the world taking in different cultures…..
What would the response be?
The most common response would be -> if you follow your dream you are going to be BROKE…. there is no money in that field or no demand for someone to pay you to do that.
I remember a time when people said dreams are created while in school as you learned about past/present/future…. when the child’s mind is unrestricted to whatever you dream you have.
Where and when was it acceptable to NOT follow your dreams?
the time Society said so…
Then I started to see … REALLY SEE and it was right in front of me the whole time…
Let me explain
When I was in school I had friends who played sports, and friends who were book nerds.
I had friends who graduated high school to go on to college and others who dropped out of high school.
I had friends who went into engineer for money and others who followed degree paths with no real job lined up.
I had friends who lived their dream chasing it daily, and others who gave up a LONG time ago.
Then I have friends who live pay check to pay check, and others who want to make their first million dollar month.
What is the difference?
I have friends who make $50k/month and I have friends who make $500k/month PLUS…
Where is the difference… and I couldn’t put my finger on it until…..
I narrowed it down to people who want MORE from life and others who just STOPPED dreaming..
It was dreaming
that was it…
The dream from your childhood that grew and changed as you got older but actually stayed the same…
My dream was to basically not be told where I had to go and when I had to do things… Basically NOT be pushed around….
and I can sum it up with this one phrase.
“I Want Control Of My Own Time”
That’s when I had the aha moment.
The moment where I remembered my dream was to protect my time, to never be told how many vacation days I had that year,
To be in control in when I wanted to hang out with my kids
To have and spend the entire day with my wife
To be happy and FREE
My freedom came when my side business was making 10x more than what I was pulling in for my mechanical engineering job.
That came back in 2011 and hasn’t looked back sense.
I helped another person leave their job (server technician) and gave him the freedom to NOT look for another job.
I helped another person get ready to have a baby and NOT ask or apply for maternity leave.
I helped another person pay their house note with what I was teaching.
It was mind blowing.
Now my results are not typical and let’s just be honest…. Are probably darn near impossible for the everyday person.
So what and HOW did I profit my first million dollars in 18 months in my business part time?
Guidelines and Requirements to be Able To Truly Live Laugh and Dream
1) Have a dream so big nothing could stop me
2) Have the hunger to achieve it fast vs slow
3) Work with others who had dreams of living FREE
4) Using a business that allowed part timers like I was to excel and even explode.
How and what did I do?
I dove into internet marketing and did it like my DREAM was on the line… and it was.
Today I’m free
and I want to help you achieve your own goals.
1) have a DREAM, YOUR DREAM
2) Be okay with failure as you can’t truly fail until you QUIT
3) Be teachable and a student
4) Love yourself
kinda odd to say “Love Yourself” but it’s true. If you can’t love yourself… it’s going to be SUPER hard to allow others to see in your Dream….
and why is it important to have a dream?
Cause YOUR dream could be the dream someone has thrown away years ago…
People need your DREAM and the hope they can reach it like you.
Follow me on my journey as I help more and MORE people reach their dreams
The dream I have chased… I finally caught after hard work, dedication, focusing my power, and running with leaders in the industry…
and now I’m on TV help MORE and MORE people.
Please respect my time and energy, if I do not respond or get back to you it is NOT a reflection of me not caring about you. My dream was to spend time at home and not be on a “schedule”. Now I have 3 kids (youngest being 1) my time is first and foremost being a full time Dad and Husband.
My training/marketing is geared for the part time learner and WILL help you as long as you take action.
