I don’t think there’s a person alive who grows up thinking “Nah, I’d rather not be successful. I’d rather just live a boring, meaningless life”.
Maybe someone has – but not you.
The problem is, the more successful you become, the harder it gets. As you gain more exposure and become more of a “success”, the target on your back becomes bigger… and bigger… and bigger.
My coach kept repeating a quote to me that I’ll never forget. It went like this…
“The higher the monkey climbs up the tree, the more his ass is exposed.”
Everybody loves a “rags to riches” story.
But do you know what’s even better to the media?
A “riches to rags” story. Everybody is captivated by those who scaled the mountain of success and then came tumbling down.
Just think about Trump in the 90’s. People were obsessed with his story of bankruptcy and gossiped that “he’d never make it back”.
(Look at him now)
The Internet has made this problem even worse. It’s so easy to hide behind a wall and purposely hurt other people because nobody knows who you are. You aren’t accountable for your actions anymore. The sad part is, many business owners use this deceitful tactic to bring down their more successful competitors.
I can’t even begin to describe how many times I’ve been attacked by my competitors, POSING as unhappy students, even though there wasn’t a shred of truth in the statement. Worse, people actually believe it!
The old saying “If it’s on the Internet, it must be true”… is unfortunately very true.
The question is…
Why Do People Resort To Hating Successful People?
The first reason is jealousy. Many people get jealous and envious of people who have what they don’t have. They think they were “lucky” to get it… or were born with good genes… or born into the perfect family… or one of a million other excuses.
There are no excuses. I started my career with $974 to my name. Now my net worth is in the 8-figures. Do you think I was “lucky”? Absolutely not! I created my own luck by working myself to the bone for years on end (and continue to do so)… and sheer determination to make something better of my life.
The second reason is something called mirroring.
Since most people don’t accept responsibility for what happens in their life, they will seek out scapegoats, like successful people, to protect their egos. After all, they don’t want to admit that me or you are more successful than them because we’ve dedicated ourselves to achieving success. They don’t want to admit that they just aren’t driven to find success.
It’s easier for them to point the finger… because it takes pressure off of them to achieve something great.
Here’s the point I’m heading towards.
You Are Who You Hang Out With
It’s NOT easy being successful today, but it IS worth the effort because, in my eyes, their is no reason for being alive if you aren’t striving towards success. You just have to take steps to counteract the attacks. The moment you become a target in the spotlight, people will stop at no ends to thwart your success.
It’s pathetic, but it happens.
Whether you’re successful now, or WANT to become successful, you need to develop the habit of hanging around other people who will uplift you, inspire you and drive you to achieve even greater levels of success.
Criticism isn’t easy to handle. Haters will always be haters and if you want to become successful you must learn to ignore them and spend more time with people “on your level”.
That’s why my business model focuses on holding LIVE events. I’ve set them up in a way that I literally can’t be successful unless I make YOU successful.
By attending one of them, you’ll be surrounded by people in the exact frame of mind you’re in. They are all on their way to becoming successful and can uplift you and inspire you to do the same. No one at these events is there to criticize you… if they do… they get kicked out immediately.
Right now, we’re running two major workshops in countries all around the world.
Workshop #1: The C7 Business Model Workshop
This is geared towards business owners or up-and-coming business owners who want to take their business to the next level. Throughout it I literally GIVE AWAY my entire business model, in response to my ex personal coach stealing mine. Instead of letting him benefit from it, I’m letting YOU take it for your own.
Workshop #2: The Below Market Value Tour
This is for those looking to add a new income stream to their life and get fabulously wealthy through real estate. It’s for anybody, business owner or employee. Since you’ll discover how to buy properties at 30% – 50% below market value, it drastically reduces any “risk” most people normally have in real estate.
This, again, reveals my exact model I personally use to buy my own real estate in countries not just in the United States… but in 13 different countries around the world.
The bottom line is this – if you want to be successful you need to do two things. Ignore the haters, and spend more time with people trying to achieve the same success you are.
Our workshops are held for one specific purpose. To make YOU successful and connect you with hundreds of others looking to accomplish the same goal.
I hope you’ll check one of them out and join us.
