Your Daily Positive Vibes:
Talking about money is always an uncomfortable topic, so hey, let’s talk about money.
I make decent money. I’m not rich, but I do okay. Note I didn’t say “I bring home decent money.” There’s a huge difference.
I don’t buy fancy suits or expensive cars. I’m the last person you’ll see wearing one of those jewelry type watches or buying boats. Instead I am focused on building Push Digital and my investment portfolio. Most of what I make goes right back into what made me money in the first place – my businesses. My goal is to grow an empire through my holding company.
There’s just one problem with that, which brings me to the whole point of this post – I don’t know anything about finances. I mean absolutely nothing. I’m a smart strategist, a damn good creative and a strong leader. I know how to build businesses and operational structures. But I know jack shit about money. I didn’t go to school for business. I never planned on being an entrepreneur. This all happened through hustle. And straight up y’all, I’m a financial DUMBASS!
So over the past six months I’ve spent the majority of my time at work and any free time I can find improving my financial education. I’ve read two books per week. I read the Wall Street Journal daily. Anytime I get the urge to check social media I check the markets or turn on CNBC instead. I’ve taken five online classes, including real estate investment courses. I’ve signed up for seminars which I will be taking later this year. I’m doing all the things.
I have identified a barrier to my long term goals and I’m working tirelessly to tear down that barrier. Accomplishing my goals is what brings me Positive Vibes but right now I’m feeling a lot of negativity because I do not have the knowledge I need to get it all done.
I want it bad, but I didn’t even know where to begin. So I just picked a book, then another, and then another until I found a path forward. I’ve wasted time trying to find that path but I feel very comfortable now that I’m heading exactly in the direction I want to head. Today I’m full of Positive Vibes because I’m figuring that shit out.
I hope you’ll forgive the uncomfortable conversation about money and see the ultimate point I’m trying to make – too many of us want to do big things but feel inadequate or even the inability to begin. Screw that! Eliminate the barriers in the way of you reaching your goal and just begin.
Want to lose 20 pounds? Get off the couch and start moving.
Want to take your career to the next level? Get off Facebook and start hustling.
Want to learn how to play the harmonica? Sign up for lessons. Okay, this one is mine and it’s coming!
Reach for those Positive Vibes! Stop pretending that barriers are permanent. Very few are! Don’t let negativity and doubt get the best of you. You got this!
I hope you find all the Positive Vibes you need to crush your goals.
