Now that i’m going to change my site I figure I should go back to the basics and see what dating is all about.
This weekend I’m taking my girlfriend and 4 of her really hot girlfriends for a week long trip to Mexico in a 5 star all inclusive resort in Cancun. I’m going to sit on my big plush bed under a cabana with a steady stream of drinks supplied to one hand by my girls, while holding my laptop with the other hand. Being that it is spring break I can watch how people behave – people in Mexico are similar to those who go online and date because they all behave like no one is watching, and nothing matters.
Now a lot of arm chair generals say what I want to do is impossible it will never work etc etc etc. Well that is the same thing that was said about every single invention or great successful company out there. Sadly many people listen to advice of “experts”, I find most self appointed experts are people who constantly just point to others who have done something successful but lack any original thoughts or ideas and whose greatest skills are selling their consulting services. I find someone is an expert when they have taken and idea and executed against it, ie accomplished something.
So if listening to others isn’t the answer what do you do to innovate? Well start off by assuming that everyone is a moron, that is the only way you are going to be open to ideas. Write them all down, then look at what experts and normal people would consider possible or has been done. Those are the ideas that could make you fairly rich or well off. The ideas that are way out in the field of impossible, those are the ideas that could make you a billionaire. The chances of you actually finding one of those are actually pretty high, the chances of executing on that idea are slim to none. That is why there is the saying ideas are a dime a dozen.
Once you’ve got an idea you need a goal to work towards, if you are working in a cubicle, your goal may be to experience the world outside of your cage, or stay at a 5 star whenever you want, or to go on vacation whenever you want. For me i’d set my goal to owning the whole resort and the yacht out front and making 100 million a year instead of just millions. Just because you are already successful doesn’t mean you don’t need a goal to work towards. Don’t assume that anyone successful thinks differently then you.
Once you got a goal you need to plan how to execute to get there. So most of my next week will be spent trying to figure out how I can best implement my idea. This will be about 99% of the effort, everything has to be planned. Risk has to be virtually eliminated, anyone who thinks great entrepeurs are risk takers has a few screws loose. Its all about minimizing risk and your level of risk should be in step with the potential reward you could get. I need to make growth goals, revenue targets etc etc etc, data mine my existing data and try and project out what will happen/work.
Burn this into your brain, Success doesn’t happen, its created.
Now I know most of the people reading this are aspiring to create a business of some kind. Many will just day dream all day but never actually do anything. I was like that a few years ago, then I finally sat down and did something, and kept forcing myself to do it till it became a pattern and it turned out hugely successful. Now i’m going to repeat that and you can as well. Now when you read this, I’ll be on a beach in Mexico on my big bed watching thousands of girls stream by, and in between the time it takes you to read this and my next drink arrives I’ll have made your weekly salary. Now that is either going to make you angry, or it’s going to inspire you to go create something. The choice is yours.
