Get Off Your ASS
Seriously, just get off your fat ass and get to work. That’s just a paradox if you’re in the internet marketing world because it’s more like get on your fat ass and get to work because all the work we’re doing is on the internet right? In a chair right? On our (probably) fat asses right? Pretty much. So let’s fix that line right now.
Seriously, just get on your fat ass and get to work, you lazy motherfucker. I had to throw that little tidbit in there, because as you learned in my cutting edge about page that I like to swear a ton. I can’t swear regularly because I have kids and they pick that shit up. I can’t be an asshole on facebook like I would prefer to be (so many complainers on the internet these days) because I run my business online. I can’t even be a dick in real life because chances are that someone will recognize me and be like “isn’t that the guy who made our website?” as I flick them a bold middle finger while passing by their little shitty Prius.
Sure, there are a ton of things that I’d love to do differently, but if I followed that I loved to do then I’d be no where. I loved to play video games. Where the hell does video games get you? I love to workout, but where the hell does that get you? Heck, I started a personal training business only to notice that it was a ticking time bomb. What do you think the first thing will be when the economy goes south? Certainly not personal training right? Think again. Paying someone to help you exercise is a true luxury.
Anyways, I’m on my second business and have learned a ton. One of the biggest things that I’ve learned is that your mind is trained. Your mind is conditioned. When you don’t feel like working that’s the time you need to get your ass “on” and start working. Your mind is telling you that you’ve worked enough because it’s conditioned to seek the path of least resistance. You need to work harder to get to where you want to be in life.
Pause for a second and think about what quality time is. Is quality time watching movies on the TV that happened to be on at the exact moment you clicked on the television? Is quality time the time you spend laying half naked on the bed or sitting on the shitter checking your social media? I think not. In fact, neither of those are quality time whatsoever. Quality time is going on a vacation with your wife and kids. Quality time is doing one of your favorite hobbies. Quality time is something that is special rather than a meaningless everyday occurance. Quality time is spending nights with your kids or reading them a bed time story.
What does this mean exactly? What does quality time have to do with building a business? Imagine taking all that non-quality and devoting it to your business. What do you think would happen if you took that non-quality time and devoted it to ANYTHING. Employees have this thing called a hobby. A entrepreneur’s hobby is making money. Change your mind, fight with yourself, win the daily battle of taking non-quality time and devoting it to working hard! If you can do that… you will win.
Take a look at this video with my boy Gary Vaynerchuk. He’s one of my biggest inspirations.
