You know, they say you gotta earn it when it comes to success. It can’t just be given to you. You just don’t realize that it’s true until you actually try to earn something for yourself. Let me pose a question to you. If you had all the money in the world and achieved all the goals you set out to achieve would you be happy?
In a word…probably not (OK that’s two words)
You see, there is a huge difference between achievement and success. There was someone I was talking to in the Bahamas whom I thought said it best when he said: “Money can’t buy happiness, but it pays for the yacht to pull alongside it.”
That, at first, may sound a little crude, but if you think about it and if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll know that it’s true. The yacht represents achievement, something that you can measure. But the harder to explain phenomenon, success, is something that we feel and can’t quite explain so we use things like money, expensive items, and various other forms of opulence to express that feeling of success.
The problem is that sometimes they go together and sometimes they don’t and that’s where a lot of people get hung up. They either chase the toys and lose their whole purpose or they get so caught up in making something that they love that they never really put it out into the world…
So where’s the happy medium? How can you achieve and feel successful? Well, that isn’t something that we can completely answer here, but I’ll give you a clue that might be a good guide. Ready?
Start with a purpose and never forget it.
Sounds simple enough and it is, especially when you have a group of people waiting to help you find and maintain your purpose. If you’re looking for a group that can help you to reach heights you never thought were possible then you should consider the group over here at the General Fitness Company.
Just shoot me a message here to get started today.

I was walking down by the pool and I saw someone who I thought was a model. She was taking pictures by the pool and she had one or two people around her.
Just then my friend turns to me and says, nah, she’s a fake model bro. My friend tells me to pay attention to her entourage. She continues, and says that if she were a real model, she would have more than a couple of people around her.
And that’s when it hit me that there really are levels to this stuff and a lot of people are posers.
You see, broham, if you’re not paying attention, you’ll get lost in the illusion that is social media. But not only social media, but in real life. A lot of people unfortunately are just str8t frontin’.
Like balling on a budget, but that budget is specifically set out to show the world that they got it like that, but in real life, it’s all a show.
Everyone does this in one way or another, it’s just how it goes. Not many people want to walk around like “Woe is me” and even if they did, nobody is really listening.
So with all this fake around us, how in the hell does a normal guy like you or me get our voice heard. Well in a word, authenticity. You see, those models will eventually be exposed, whether it’s a year down the road or 10, eventually everyone’s truth is exposed.
So the key to getting what you want and deserve, is not to worry about those fake models and posers that are just out there to put up a front. Because eventually that front gets too expensive to keep up and you have to have some truth.
It sucks and I know you want to drive the Rolls Royce now and stay in swanky hotels, but honestly bro, it’s probably not your time. But it doesn’t mean that it will never be your time….
There is a way to expedite the process, but I don’t have time to go into it here. I’m on vacation right now, so TBH I’m not doing a ton of work, but if you want to get in on a conversation that is showing people the exact way that I got to spend a weekend in Miami while staying in swanky hotels, then you’re in luck.

P.S. It really does baffle me how many people just try to front their way to the top. I completely understand the desire, but it true that many people get there the wrong way and find themselves either spending a lot of money to stay up there, or scrambling to get back up after they’ve somehow fallen. It’s not really rocket science, but people just seem to make it difficult. Idk…just click here and see if I can help make a difference in your life. Talk soon…
