There are a lot of things that separate the top 1% from those who strive but never get there, and most of those things are born of mental blocks.
We’ll not mince words in this edition:
In this world, you have to take what you want or you’ll never have it.
All those barriers you *feel* exist
All the barriers that *actually* exist
None of them matter.
Okay, of course they matter…but they can’t be a blocker or you’ll never get where you want to go.
One guy I worked with grew up in a terrible neighborhood, but now he’s enjoying some incredible cash flow from scaling in real estate. “I never thought I’d be the guy sending my kids to private school, but that’s what it’s all about. My kids will have it better than I did.”
This man is setting up generational wealth…he’s still building, and he’s not nearly done.
If you have your health and at least an average IQ, you are luckier than many - and you have a real shot. This is an edition for thinking bigger, challenging yourself, and not allowing the things in front of you (or the past behind you), to ever block your path.
Everyone feels some pushback if they’re gunning for something big. From people making millions every year to those just starting out. You bump up against things in yourself, your environment, and even within your own company when people can’t think as big as you do…and that happens to almost everyone.
What do the best do? They do it anyway.
They know that barriers aren’t always a sign to stop - in fact, they often are just markers to keep approaching in a new way.
You’ve got to work through or push through the hard things, take them head-on, and move forward. It is unpopular to say, but what I’ve come to realize is that the people who reach the highest levels: They see the barriers, they feel the pushback, but they take what they want.
It may not always feel like it, but you have this ability too.
If you want something in this world, you will have to take it for yourself.
Let’s dive into what that requires.
