There’s a lot that goes into the equation being the boss of yourself. People like choices on the positive aspect of their lives. I get to pick what work I do. It all starts with being self-reliant or being the boss of you.
No one has to tell you to get up. No one has to tell you that you have to save money. No one has to tell you that you should be doing something constructive and positive with your life.
If you’re truly a boss, you are running your life from A to Z. You’re not just working on the good stuff or the fun shit. That’s what I see a lot of.
I want you to think about something. When was the last time you sat down and took personal inventory of your life and where you want to be and what you should be doing. Have you ever done that? Have you ever said, this is the life that I want to live.
I don’t have what I call celebrity or hero worship syndrome where you see some celebrity and you think they have these awesome lives. Maybe they do. Maybe they don’t. I’m not there. But from what I see, I think a lot of them are living in a glass cage.
You have all this fame. You have all this money and you can’t even go out and eat a simple meal without being harassed. I don’t want that kind of life. Some people may want it. Some people may crave it. I’m not one of those people.
So, when you think about your life, the thing that you are living right now, have you said, “Hey, I want to do this.” One of the reasons I like entrepreneurs and really successful people isn’t because of the money. I often meet people who said, I want that type of life, then they made it happen. They didn’t chase money to chase money. They chased money to fund a lifestyle that they wanted and thought about for a long time.
I have a friend. He has a lake in the back of his house. It wasn’t there when the house was built, but he wanted it. He had one built. It had this very nice garden and all these other things. People say that’s just crazy extravagant. That’s just nuts. I’ve been back there, and it’s just as peaceful as it can be. He created his company to fund the lake and the house. If he wants to run around naked in his backyard, he can, because he doesn’t have any neighbors. He’s on 25 acres.
I want you to think about that. All of the people with mega money all go out and buy their own compound or they have this farm or place where they can get truly away. That’s creating a life of intent. That’s creating a life of purpose.
You can do that if you think you can like a boss. This is the thing. Being a boss is not about money. It’s about accountability. A lot of times when you build a company, in the infant stages everybody is making more money than you, the boss. As a boss, your job is to grow the company, not to get rich off the company or to starve the company taking the cash it needs to grow.
That happens a lot. That’s why a lot of businesses never get that big because the boss is taking the cash out prematurely. You can’t hamstring the company if you want to grow it to a point where you can truly have a great lifestyle. It doesn’t take hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Now, do you want to be the boss of you? Do you really want to be the boss of you? If you do, you can start today by actually taking stock and looking at your life and saying A – we’re going to keep this party rolling or B – it is time for an intervention. That’s being a boss.
When you develop these qualities, people who have not developed these qualities will flock to you. You can do one or two of these things with these people. You can enlighten them or you can exploit them.
Either you are a boss of people or you are a boss. It’s a choice. One of the things a lot of folks don’t understand is there is no middle ground. You may think there is a middle ground, but there’s not.
Being a boss means you will have to do, say and act in a way that makes you very uncomfortable. There is a lot of accountability with being a boss. There is a lot of accountability with being a leader.
