The Risk Of ‘Playing It Safe’

The Risk Of ‘Playing It Safe’

Do you ever get that sick feeling inside your stomach when you know you’re wasting your time and not becoming the best person you can be?

Having that dream lifestyle you’ve always wanted…

Doing the work you’ve always dreamed of…

Getting into the flow of working in your zone of genius…

Some people get FOMO (fear of missing out) when they see others living really cool lifestyles and doing what they were meant to do.

And then they look at their life and have a hopeless feeling that they’re never going to get to where they wanna be.

BUT… Fear not!

Because it really comes down to one thing.

Well… Maybe two (if we’re gonna get technical).

Let’s go back to the 2008 recession.

Think about how hard it would have been to start a successful business back then.

At that time, Elon Musk got $180M from the PayPal acquisition.

And instead of taking some time off, living on a beach somewhere for a year…

Waiting for the whole ‘recession storm’ to blow over…

He invested ALL of his $180M into 3 new companies:

$100M into SpaceX
$70M into Tesla
& $10M into Solarcity

He literally invested everything he had and had to borrow rent money from his friends & family.

What a legend.

I also have clients that are financial planners who are losing millions of dollars in the marketplace every day…

Its shown me the extreme levels of staying cool under pressure up so you can end up winning on the other side of the coin.

What I’ve learned is you have to take some risks, play with fire, and LEARN when you “fail”.

Make it a habit.

And continually be growing.

Which is why you need to check out this week’s podcast on the mindset you need to have when leaning into fear, how to continually move forward until you’ve become that person you’ve always wanted to be (with the lifestyle and fulfilling work to back it up).

So as always…
