You Have Options
One of the worst things in the world is to have been brainwashed with the mindset that you do not have any options. Lots of times your environment and the people in which you spend your time with on a regular, will actually have you thinking and feeling as if you have no options. They will throw your limitations at you. They will continually bring up the mistakes you have made in the past, they will bring up your current mistakes you are making & they will predict your future mistakes that you will make. But you need to know that the majority of people actually do not have your best interest at heart, it's a sad reality. You also must understand that your environment can trick you into thinking that your current situation and life style is all you deserve. But I come to tell you with 100% boldness that you in fact do have options. You do not have to play the victim to your environment & circumstances. You do not have to be limited or restricted by the negative feedback and comments of others. Instead you must build 100% confidence in yourself, so that you know that without a shadow of a doubt, you have options. You do not need to be stuck where you are at, when increase, advancement and promotion is available to you. The key principle is you must elevate your mindset and attitude and position your self to receive better circumstances. You must be willing to do more. You must be willing to learn more. You must be willing to be so focused on achieving your goals & dreams that you do not allow anything or anyone to get you distracted. You have been told no, so many times by outside forces that it has caused you to believe that you have no options. Let me explain to you why you have received so many no's. Majority of people are quick to say no because they have been told no, so many times in life. And most people use no as a defense mechanism. The majority of people will say no, not even knowing what they are saying no to, because they have been conditioned and programmed to say no on a regular basis without even having all the information presented to them. No is a form of rejection but you must understand when you receive a no they are not rejecting you personally. They have just been conditioned to repeat what in fact they have received themselves on multiple occasions. So now that you understand the mentality and mindset behind it, please do not allow that to discourage you from achieving everything that is possible for you. I want you to know that you do have options and that you have what it takes to achieve every dream, every goal and every desire.
Another thing you must understand is that you must be passionate, enthusiastic and excited about what you got going on and what you are trying to achieve. You have to know what you want and you must know why you want it. This is so important if you are serious about achieving anything great. People will support you and your vision if you know what you want and why you want it, and if you can communicate it effectively. Because in order to grow and to go to the next level, you are going to have to be willing to put 100% energy and efforts into everything you say and do. You must be so clear and determined as to what you are trying to achieve and why your trying to achieve it. Best advice I can give you on this subject, is to take the time to actually fall in love with your vision, that way when you are sharing your vision (product, service or information.) Whoever you are sharing your vision to, will actually feel the love. And will have an emotional connection because of the love and passion you have shown. Also when you are sharing information or ideas with others, please make sure you look them in the eyes. Make sure your bold, confident and truthful. If someone asks you a question and you do not have an answer, you must have integrity and not lie. Simply be honest and truthful and let them know you will get the correct information or answer to them as soon as possible.
Now on the flip side you can also think you have no other options if you are in fact great at something. Then people and society will play on that and try to limit you to what you are currently doing even if its something you know you do not love 100% and that you know is wrong. Example when I sold drugs everyone told me how much of a hustler I was. They congratulated my successes selling drugs even though I was doing something illegal. Even though I was hurting people and didn't care about people. Just loved making the money and didn't care how I made it or who was hurt in the process. My friends and my environment accepted me and actually had me deceived to the point that I actually thought that there was nothing wrong with what I was doing. There is the notion in the hood that if they don't get the drugs from you, then they will get it from some where else. Then it goes deeper because people will convince you that it's better the addicts get it from you because then at least it's not mixed with anything that's deadly that could really cause harm to the addicts. But that's a trick to have you convinced that what your doing is right when in fact it's 100% wrong. Because drugs are destroying our people. People have lost homes, cars, family, relationships & there minds due to being addicted to drugs. So lets be clear if your selling drugs you are in fact part of the problem.
It takes an enormous amount of energy, skills and work ethic to be successful at selling drugs. My goal for you is that if you are currently reading this and you are a drug dealer. I want you to know that I love you like for real, I love you and I understand where your at but you have to understand if you are a true hustler like you claim to be, then you have the power to switch it up and be way more successful then you are now. All the skills you possess you must put them into something legal and something positive. I'm here to tell you, that you are not a drug dealer. You are in fact an entrepreneur, you are a soon to be successful businessman/woman. You must discover who you are and what you want.
Everyone knows the risk of selling drugs or doing any illegal activities is jail or dead. But we are willing to take that risk because we are risk takers. We are entrepreneurs so the consequences are not enough to really make one want to stop partaking in the illegal activities. The key or principle I should say is for you to ask yourself the tough questions. You know that you are tired of being part of the problem. And inside of you, you want so bad to be part of the solution. You want to make a change. You just don't know how. You feel as if there is so many factors against you. I have been there, I have felt the pain you are feeling. But I have found out and discovered that I in fact have options. And you do to. I have found that people will in fact support my vision, my dream and my goal. And just like you are reading my book right now. This was one of my goals and the fact that you are reading it now is proof that change is possible. The fact that you are still reading and thinking that you are ready for a change is proof that you will receive the love and support you need to make the changes in your life so that you can be successful financially, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. This is just the beginning for you and I'm excited. Let's win because we got what it takes.
I'm sitting here thinking about when I was selling cars out of 30 different salesmen, each month I was either #1, #2, #3 or #4. The car business was a very competitive and hectic line of work. We were taught and trained to not get the customers the best deals because the better deal the customer got the less money we will make in commissions as a salesman. We were taught to upsale warranties. We were taught to charge extra for different features. We were taught on the financing part to get extra points as far as higher interest rate then banks quoted. (Usually banks will pay higher to dealerships if finance manager can get customer to agree at a point or 2 or 3 points higher interest rate.)
So a little advice if you are buying a used car in the future and your quoted for example 12% interest rate, chances are you can negotiate that down 1-3% so always keep that in mind. Usually everything is negotiable not just in the car business but in life in general. So keep that in mind and always try to get the best deal and best value.
It's amazing when I was selling cars everyone told me how great of a car salesman I was. They congratulated me and I even had sales managers tell me that I was born to sell cars. (Notice the environment and people will try to make you think you have no options. Can be on the negative or positive. Because majority of people will try to control your destiny, if you let them.) I was a victim to this cycle for years because they had me trained to think that this was my only option because I had been a drug dealer and I had multiple felonies and I had did 41/2 years in the penitentiary. (I will tell you my experiences there in another chapter. Let's stay focused on this you have options. LOL)
I know as your reading this you are thinking about certain people or your environment and you can start to see how they might be trying to hinder your growth or hinder the changes that you want to make but are a little scared to make. (I know you thinking you are not scared of anything, yeah that's what your mouth says but your actions are saying something different. It's all love.)
You have to not get upset at them because surprisingly enough some people put limits and labels on you. And they think they are doing you a favor. They think they are showing love. And majority of them actually believe that they have no options also, so that type of mentality and mindset can be contagious. But you are going to break the cycle because you are discovering that you in fact do have options. This is the beginning process, this is the birthplace for change. This is the exciting part, realizing that more is available.
Sitting here thinking there are so many beautiful women with nice bodies and attitudes. And they use there bodies to get them favor, indirectly most times. Some times intentional, but never the less using the body as a tool to get what they want, when they want it. Ladies you are amazing. You are beautiful, and the love that you possess on the inside is like no other. Ladies I want you to know that no matter what's going on in your life, that you should be respected and appreciated for all that you do. So I salute you all. I want you to know that you in fact do have options. Do not allow a man to belittle you or put limits on you. You can be secure with yourself and with your abilities. Remember you are designed to be great, not because you have something to prove. But because you are great inside and out. Ladies you are special in every way. Do yourself a favor and never underestimate yourself. You do not have to doubt yourself because you have special insight that allows you to make the necessary connections to bring about change in your life. I want you to know I love you and I honor you. Ladies you birth our children. Ladies you are loving and caring. Sometimes your attitude can get you in trouble. LOL Ladies I have some advice for you. If you are in a relationship it's extremely important that you encourage and motivate your man. It's important that yall be committed to working as a team. Because yall our partners and the goal is for yall to achieve both of yall goals, dreams and desires. Ladies I want yall to win, I want yall to be the best women, the best mothers, the best sisters and the best examples of what it means to be a phenomenal women. You hold the power to make things right. So be loving, be nice and be supportive at all times.
Its so important that as were discovering and realizing that we do have options, that we be encouraged and motivated through the change process. Because any time there is a change, there is also the possibility of going back to the familiar situation. Because the unknown present's a false fear that will make you think that with a change there is no guarantee that things will work out. But you must realize that if you remain focused and do not allow yourself to get distracted. Then you are positioning yourself and your family and everyone connected to you to be in a much better situation that you could actually be proud about. Remember broken things can be fixed. Remember pain is only temporary. Remember when you know for yourself that you in fact do have options, that will give you the confidence to attack everyday and every assignment with enthusiasm, determination and a winning mindset. You have the power to change your situation. You have the power to go after what you really want to do. If you have not figured it out yet. Then take some time now and start thinking about it. Jot you some notes down and ask yourself some tough questions you been meaning to ask yourself but it seems like you never have any time because you are to busy doing things that you assumed was priority, that you assumed was important, which in the past it actually was. But now your searching for your purpose because you want to be fulfilled. So take some time to think, answer some of your own questions and then formulate a game plan. Now is your time to shine. Now is your season, I'm so excited for you. Keep reading and as you are reading keep thinking. You are about to go to the next level. Promotion and increase is yours.
If you are working at a job and it's been stagnate and your pay or responsibilities have not increased. Now is the time to be willing to do more than what your currently paid for because that's the only way you will get recognized. If you are working for someone ask the owner, in what way can you be more valuable. You must have a strong work ethic to get ahead. Rather you own a company or work for a company. You must have integrity about yourself. Make it a habit of doing what you say you are going to do. If you work for someone they should not have to tell you 2 or 3 times to do a particular task. You have to be on top of your business in every way if you really truly want to get ahead. Another point is you have to know when your time is up at a place as well. Because after you have exhausted all your efforts and you are doing everything in your power to do your best but your still getting treated unfairly. Then you have to be willing to analyze yourself and your situation so you can discover what's the best options for you and your family. Because you are not stuck, you do have options.
I can relate to business owners because I had a successful lawncare/ landscaping company for 8 years. And if you are working for a company just like you have options to quit that company and go some where else. The owner also got options because there are so many people looking for work. So you can be replaced easily. The truth of the matter is a lot of times doing just your job and doing the minimum and what's just required of you will not cut it. If you work for a company you must be willing to put 100% energy and effort into your daily assignments. If you are a worker for a company you must have the mindset and attitude to want to see the company grow. Because if you are a key reason for the growth then you best believe your going to get promoted and more money is coming your way. Plus you are preparing yourself to own your own business one day. I personally believe it should be everyone's goal to be a business owner because the most financially successful people in the world own businesses and or real estate and or investments. So even if you are working for a company and you love it, you should still consider having a business on the side as well. You have so many options to how you can make it work. Do not ever limit yourself because you have the ability to achieve anything that you are willing to work for. When I had my lawncare service I experience so many people that worked for me just to get a check. You can not have this mind set, if you are working for a company you must do something you enjoy. You should wake up every morning excited to go to work because you love what you do. If you do not love what you are currently doing then you must take some time to analyze your self and your situation. The goal is to wake up everyday excited about your day because your working on your goals, dreams and the vision you have for your life. Its possible to absolutely love what you do 100%. It's possible to be 100% happy with your work, yourself and your current situation. Remember joy, peace, wealth, and happiness is available to you. The whole reason for wanting increase in every area of your life is to give you more options. Because when you realize that you actually have options, something magical takes place in the inside of you that will infact boost your confidence and position you to have the life style of your dreams. Remember success in every single area of your life is available to you. As you are reading this, things are starting to click for you. Do me a favor and do not beat yourself up for any mistakes you have made in the past. They were necessary and they were all part of your journey. But you have a responsibility to change certain things about yourself, when you have encountered new information that will infact add value to your life. New information is what changes lives. 1 book can make the world of difference. And I believe if you apply the principles, values, mindset and attitude discussed in this book that your life will change and never be the same.
