“Stop comparing and start living now.” - Patrick Allmond (07:13-07:17)
Have you ever looked at someone's success and secretly created your assumptions that they don't deserve everything they have? Or perhaps, there was a time that you felt the same way for yourself? Sometimes, we trick ourselves with the word “deserve.” We think that we deserve certain things based on some completely irrational criteria. In this week's show, you'll adopt a different belief system that will shift your mindset in the right way.
Part One of ‘Stop Doing Nothing’
Save yourself several decades of grief by not comparing your path to other people's journeys and possessions. No one in this world is living the exact same life. They may have started from the same place, but not the exact same results. It just doesn't happen that way. There are so many factors that go into success and where you go.
“Take a serious look at your network.” - Patrick Allmond (18:45-18:47)
We love to hate rich people who make a lot of money because we don't think they deserve it, but we should not hate those people. We shouldn't say that their wealth should be divided up equally against everybody else. The reality is that you get what you work for. You need to change the actions you take every day and put those more in terms of creating opportunities for yourself.
Part Two of ‘Stop Doing Nothing’
It's an unhealthy habit to obsess over people who have things that you can't afford. Whether they are higher than you or lower than you, you will either become bitter or jealous. Start visualizing your goals and keep a good network. More opportunities will spring up when you're around people that have what you have and are willing to help you get it.
“You are here in this world to get what you work for.”
- Patrick Allmond (21:00-21:02)
Take a serious look at your network, not your online network. Don't count your Facebook friends as your network, especially those of you that have over about two or three hundred connections on Facebook. These people are not your friends in any way, shape, or form. Those are not the people you should be primarily associating with.What you should be doing is finding people in the real world and taking your relationships offline. You're not here in this world to get what you deserve or wait for what luck drops in your lap. You are here in this world to get what you work for.
