We live in a world of instantgratification, you order something on the Internet and you expect it on yourdoorstep. In a day. We want six figures in six weeks. Youwant lots of loyal fans, we want to do whatever we want and wewant to do it quickly. So, if you're looking on the Internetfor short cuts for hacks for the quickest way possible to success, Ijust want to warn you that you're, probably going to lose the first reason that short cuts andhacks aren't going to work, for you is because, if you don't succeed, rightaway, you're probably going to quit. Success doesn't happen overnight. Success happens over time but lookslike it happened over night,...

...but wanting to do something instantlyor get successful instantly is only going to make you quit faster whenyou're not successful right on. The second reason is that you'remissing out on the best part of learning and growing, which isexperiencing failure. You learn so much more from yourfailures than you do your successes. So, if you're addicted to these shortcuts and these hacks- and you just get an immediate success, how will youhandle failure because failure is a big part of beingself employed being an entrepreneur being your own thing and learning howyou handle failure, how you learn from thing: You'll, learn more from failing thanyou'll learn from short cuts and hacks...

...in everything in your life, including podcast. I don't believe that anything goodcomes easy. I have a desire to work for things and make them happen. You've seen the documentaries aboutpeople who win the lottery, they fritter all the money away rightaway and their life is worse than when they started. They didn't earn that money. Theydidn't sweat for that money and they didn't know how to handle that. That'swhy you see a lot of gooes telling you how they lost a million dollars andwhat they learn from me. You think they'll ever lose a milliondollars again, probably not. It seems like everybody's. Just copying...

...with the last person who says they'resuccessful is doing I'm all for looking at people forinspiration, but if you're just copying somebodyelse's business model, you're always going to be one stepbehind you're, not creating anything new andyou're, not learning anything yourself, you're, just taking the easy way out,and when things get tough you're going to quit when you're not successful, you willfade away because it's the ones who are learningand failing that are growing and always going to be one step ahead of you be inspired, but don't be a thief. When I was a kid my grandfather told me:I don't work, nine o five. I work five to nine.

What he meant was. I worked for five, aM to nine and he was a multi millionaire at avery young age, build everything himself, and he told me if you really want something you have to out work everybody in theroom. I'm talking about the first person on the court and the last person of all. Now I've been building businesses for along time and at one point I had a full touch. I have a family, I have responsibilities, a social life, but I would wake up early and work andwork through lunch and stay up late in WORKK, because it's what I wanted to doand I'll still outward anybody in the...

...world. Now I can't give you the desire in yourheart to do that. You have to want to do it and you have to want to do itwithout being rewarded right away. You have to do it for the love and knowingthat there's a chance. This won't work out. But what I can tell you is that everysingle business I've started every single podcast I've started throughout. The failures is where Ilearn things that I put in my tool box for the future. So many people bullshit me and tell methat they want to do something, but they just wanted to be easy. That's why I think so many people areattractive podcast...

...because it seems easy to plug in theMike. You Talk, you hang out with your friends and that at some point,hopefully you get lots of listeners and somebody gives you a big pile of money and there's people out there that makeit look easy. There's people out there that make itlook like it just happened like somebody flipped the money, lightswitch on what you don't see are the hours ofwork. In the background, the relentless consistency, thefailures that made that person able to succeed.I just want to ask you: Are you really putting it all on the table? Are youjust looking for a short cut to get there quickly? I can't answer thisquestion for you. You have to no matter what it is. You're doing,podcasting your career, your family...

...business. Are you willing to fail? Are you willing to put it allout there in order to get what it is? You want the short cuts and hacks can help you, but your own failures will help youmore your own blood, sweat and tears willhelp you born working as hard. As you know, you can so that you know in your heart that youactually did everything you can to make your dream of. Reality is the only way,and I can tell you from my experience that this dream might not work outright now, but all those failures and all thatexperience it's going to set you up for...

...the next or stop waiting for the next new hack, stop trying to get a short cut to someimaginary number of money and put in the work put it all out there so that you know every time your headhits the pillow, but you try to out work everybody inthe room. Success takes time and nothing good comes as.
