Entrepreneur Advice To Get You Moving
Lately, I have had more and more bloggers, entrepreneurs asking me how they can keep growing there blogs or business.
If your one of those “give me the bottom line JP” personalities…
You have to decide you want it bad enough, you have to hit a bottom. Just like an addict needs to hit their bottom before they decide to get help.
Now if you have a few minutes and want to read advice from a guy that has lived it, then keep reading, you will be happy you did.
I want to take it back to the real shit… you know that real talk that can be painful and ugly but honest and helpful?
Yes, I can share a another how to post or great tips post and those are helpful, but if your motivation isn’t there to take action, then all that how to shit is useless since you won’t ever act on it.
Answer this Question.
How many times do you read one of my posts or anyone’s posts and act on the advice as soon as you finish reading it?
Be honest… the answer is between you and yourself.
I bet you said maybe 50%, 20%, less than 10% of the time?
Now, why wouldn’t you act on FREE information that will help grow your blog, your social activity or your business?
Lazy? Busy? Don’t trust in what you read?
Or is it that your just not motivated enough. Maybe your blog and business isn’t a priority to you and your family the way you think it is.
So, let’s work on what’s going on between your ears, since that will determine what you do or don’t do in the future.
Let me share my story of my bottom that finally got me to jump and make changes that have led me to where I am right now.
Now between you and me, this is NOT easy for me to share, I’m a private person and sharing how big a loser I was is not something I like to do.
But I know it will be helpful to you at some level.
My Bottom Story
Years ago I had many small bottoms, things like not having the money to buy gifts for my niece and family on holidays or birthdays.
To not dating “good” girls because I didn’t have the money to put into dates or a relationship.
I became an expert at the 3 dates and jump game, that I became the poster boy
for… it’s not you, it’s me… and I meant it.
Ok, a few times it was THEM, since I have dated some crazy chicks haha, but usually it was me.
As bad as all that was, I learned to adapt just like an addict and lived with it.
My REAL bottom finally hit one day when I picked up my nephew at school and he told me he was hungry and if we could go to Mc Donald’s, something we normally did when I would pick him up.
But that day I was shit broke, I had enough money to put gas in my car and that’s it.
So instead of saying no or figuring something out, I instead got pissed off and took it out on him.
Telling him he doesn’t always need to eat out and didn’t you eat at school and there is food at home and you don’t need Mc Donald’s all the time.
It was ugly!
After I dropped him off, I drove home thinking how big a loser I was for first not having $5 to buy him food, but to then get mad and take it out on him.
That was my bottom to finally make some changes and get to work.
Is Your Bottom Coming?
Do you need to hit a bottom to finally be the successful entrepreneur that you want to be?
What will it take to get you to finally act and stop making excuses?
Now that might have been the hardest post for me to write, but I am happy to say, I have not looked back since my bottom.
Oh, and my nephews eat Mc Donald’s anytime they want haha
I’ll end with this powerful quote…
