Key Points

1. You Have to Start with a Dream and Believe It 

Before you can achieve anything in this life of real substance or value, you have to start with a dream.

If you have achieved success today, even if you do not realize it, it’s because you started with a dream.

You started with the dream that you would be able to support your family while still making time to be with them, you started with a dream of owning your own company, or marrying the girl of your dreams.

If you want something, you have to first dream it, write it down as a goal, visualize it, and believe that it can happen.

2. The Hustle Will be Hard

Look, becoming successful sucks.

There is no way around it, if you want to be successful you will have to make sacrifices, you will have to work through vacations, skip dates with girlfriends, cut out friendships that are not serving you, miss a few episodes of the Walking Dead.

Success is not easy, but if you expect the worst up front, then whenever you are actually in the trenches and the shit hits the fan, you will be able to stay calm and collected because you were already prepared.

3. You Have to Have Positive Pessimism and Patience

The two things that will help you on your journey to success almost more than anything else are a sense of positive pessimism and patience.

If you hope that things will work out, but realistically expect them to flop, then you will not be disappointed when a deal doesn’t go your way. And if you have patience, you will be able to realize that this was merely the first of many deals and you will have many more chances to achieve your dreams.

4. Change Your Crew

Want to know the quickest way to change your income, body, relationships, or spiritual life?

Change who you spend time with. If you spend time around winners and hustlers, you will become a winner and a hustler.

If you spend time around athletes and casanovas, you will become an athlete and a casanova.

Likewise, if you spend your time around a bunch of lazy, goalless, slobs…

Well… that is what you will become.

Change your crew, change your life.

5. Don’t Allow Age to Affect Your Dreams 

No matter whether you are young or old, you are never too young or too old to start pursuing your dreams. Most successful entrepreneurs did not have their big home run until well after thirty, many of them as late as 40 and 50.

And on the opposite end of the spectrum, there are many young entrepreneurs who are probably younger than your little brother making millions of dollars a year.

Age is not a factor to success. Success is blind to your age, gender, color, sexuality, socioeconomic status, background, and damn near anything else that you believe is holding you back.

Don’t allow anything to affect your dreams.
