Common Cents Corner is my space to get real with you guys and talk about something bigger then just money. Even though, these talks can be relevant to money, they are focused more on motivating you to present yourself in a more positive light and to just hustle to stay at the top of your game. This week I have been dealing with a lot at home and on my journey of entrepreneurship that has led me to wondering what separate people who dream and people who made it a reality. And I had to realize for myself that it was not everyone was able to cut through the bullshit of their own excuses.

Ever have one of those talks with your friends where the both of you complain to each other for hours on why you want to do something but can’t. For instance, my conversations usually go like this:

Me: Hey how are you friend.

Friend: I’m fine, you?

Me: Great, getting ready to go out this weekend, you coming?

Friend: No, I got so much I need to work on. I’m going to stay at home this time.

Me: Same! I got so much I need to catch up on. There is work, school work, and blog posts to finish. I just can’t seem to find the time to do everything, you know?

Friend: mhmm

Me: And I worked so hard putting up those three posts but no one reads.

Friend: How long have you been blogging?

Me: Oh, about six months.

Friend: mhmm.

Cut through the bullshit. No More Excuses.

stop complaining - cut through the bullshit

Yeah, something like that? People have the talent of never seeming to find time to DO. It’s so much easier to say that you don’t have time or spend time with friends going out then to buckle down and DO.

The faster you realize that you’re bullshitting your self by making excuses of why you can’t get something done. The faster you will realize that you’re the only one holding yourself back and you will find time to do what you have to. One of my favorite favorite hustlers, who motivates me and the crap out of everyone around him, is Gary Vaynerchuk.

 Stop crying, keep hustling! Hustle is the most important word, ever!  – Gary Vaynerchuk

There is nothing holding you back nothing more than your own bullshit. One practice that I do myself and suggest for others is to figure out what you want to do. Then, think about everything you think is keeping you from doing it. This could be time, space, money, influence, patience, or whatever you can think of that you feel like is keeping you from your goal. Circle your list, and realize, its all BULLSHIT. No, really, it is. I say this because there are so many cases where people are put through so much in life and go years without getting acknowledge and they still make time to pursue what they love and fucking CRUSH IT!

Its the people that can do this that win.

 


 

 

Spend time eating shit now. Eat caviar later.

 

The time you spend now and the next year, 5 years, or even 10 years hustling to grow yourself and your business and picking out of debt is you eating shit, but that sweet feeling after its done is what makes the caviar so much better.

Time is really the only real currency of value in this world, and the fact that you can’t trade for more and that you can’t buy more means you can’t waste any either. This post like most of my common cents corner posts, was not meant to insult or offend anyone. Its simply me putting forth ideas to keep you knowledgable and moving forward instead of remaining stagnant.
