”I just graduated college with $100,000 in debt”, yeah people clap celebrate and even hug you. 🎉
“I just got a loan for $400,000 to buy my first home”, yeah people clap celebrate and even hug you. 🏡
“I just got a loan for $40,000 for a new car”, yeah people clap celebrate and even hug you. 🚗
That’s $540,000 in total debt most people are living in(add a few hundred thousand for those living in Southern California), but they are feeling good about it because they are being celebrated for it.
Now, go tell those same people you spent a few hundred dollars to start your own business…
“Whoa, are you sure?”
“What are you going to do if it doesn’t work?”
“Umm.. I don’t think those things really work”
“Do you think you can get your money back?”
Picture a bucket full of crabs with no lid… the crabs never escape the bucket. The moment a crab tries to get out of the bucket, the other crabs pull it back down.
Pay attention to who you are surrounding yourself with and who is speaking into your life.
