Greetings and happy holidays everyone. I’m sending this out from my office at 9:20 p.m. on the day after Christmas. Yes… even I still work long hours but in 2-3 years I hope to walk away from it all, but I must first pay my dues.
Are you willing to pay your dues in the coming new year? 2010 is only a few days away and the question for you is… Will you start your t-shirt business this year? Or will you sit by and waste another year on a bunch of excuses?
You have the power to change your current circumstances simply by changing your mind… and here’s proof.
This Christmas I gave my kids $65 each (they’re young so $65 seems like a lot of money and it keeps me from really having to buy the really expensive stuff that they wanted anyways… they just like the idea of having the money I think.
Anyhow, my oldest child is 11 and he was ready to blow through his money. But, I decided to take him with me to an auction. They were selling all types of merchandise, toys and antiques at this particular auction (this is the type of auction where you can buy stuff for literally pennies on the dollar).
Anyhow, he wanted everything that came through.
After hipping him to the way things worked at auctions, I simply turned to him and said the following…
“You can spend all your money on toys today and be broke and bored a week from now with the stuff you bought; or, you can take your $65 and buy a few things today at a very low-low price and resale them for a higher profit, and put yourself in a situation to buy all the toys you’ll ever want want 3-6 months from now.”
In that moment, he opted to buy some pocket knives for $3/each and a sword.
He gave his “pa-pa”, his uncle and me a pocket knife as a present and sold the rest for $15 and sold the sword for $55 and on January 1st there is a big auction coming up and he’s going with me to buy more stuff with his profits.
In that moment a 11 year old boy made a decision to do something different and his outcome and results were dramatically different. He got to fulfill that itch of spending his money, but in a different way that allowed him to make even more.
So… are you going to step up and do something with your ideas this January 1st, 2010? Leave your comments below and make your New Years Resolution today…
If you’re interested in my coaching program, I only have 1 spot left… 2 guys joined last week and they’re excited and pumped and ready to go!
