We need to have a talk. It’s long overdue. We’ve been in this space for a long time. Today, we’re going to bring it out. Every day, I get this email. “Hey Glendon, I have a question. I’ve got a situation. Hopefully you can help me out. I need something that’s going to make me from $1K to $3K extra a month, but I can’t work too hard. I can’t devote a lot of time to it. I need something that makes a lot of money but doesn’t take a lot of time. I’m broke, so I have no money to pay you. But I want you to help me out because you’re such a good person.”
I get that email every day. I’ve got love for you and that’s why I’m going to talk to you like this. We live in an internet society. We live in a world where things are moving very, very fast. We live in a world where things are just amazing. Technology is amazing. You can do things in a snap that a few years ago took days, months and even years.
You need to understand though, that fast money does not come to most of us. I understand that you are working 2.8 jobs and that your kids need shoes. I understand that your sick father needs you. I understand. However, you have to make a choice. You can’t serve two masters at the same time. If you’re going to be there for your family, be there, but understand that the chances of you being poor are extraordinarily high. It is what it is.
If you want to start a side business to bring in extra income, let me give you some of my criteria. In the beginning, you will probably work your side business longer hours than you work your real job because you don’t know what you’re doing. Once you figure out what you’re doing, the money is still not going to look as good as your real job because of the effort to reward ratio. Number three – You will not have any time to yourself. Between your real job and your side hustle, you will be exhausted.
You might make $200 to $800 per month while busting your ass. See, I have love for you and that’s why I’m going to tell you the truth. What upsets me with you is you’ve been asking the same question for the last decade.
If you want $200, $300 or $400 a month, you can probably make that and not work very hard. But I you want more than $1500, 2K, or $5K, you will have to apply yourself with more vigor than you apply yourself to your real job.
The reason I keep distinguishing between your side hustle and real job is because until you think of your creativity or things you can do as something valuable, you will always be a sideline ‘ho. What I mean is you will whore yourself out for your side business because you don’t think you’re good enough to turn your sideline business into your main business. That’s your problem. That’s what upsets me.
People lie to me. They blow smoke up my ass because they don’t want to admit they are a scared little bitch. They don’t want to deal with that. So, you’re going to ask me this question over and over again. People think I owe them for some reason.
If you’d look in the mirror and say, “I fucked up today, but I am going to do better tomorrow,” you have solved 50% of your problems.
Some people want me to stop saying fuck, damn or mother fucker. So, I am going to say kindly, don’t read this or watch my videos. Go away. This is the beauty of owning your shit. This is the beauty in having enough faith in yourself and your abilities, that you can live your life how you fucking please. As long as I don’t break the law or impede on the rights of someone else, I can do what the fuck I want. I can say what the fuck I want. That pisses some of you the fuck off.
I used to be like you. I used to drink the Kool-Aid. I used to stand in the “come fuck me today” line of society. I was that dude. Then one day I saw an opening. I got kicked out of the pasture. They said, “We don’t want you no more. You asked too many damn questions. You think mother fucker. Stop thinking.”
Once I got kicked out of the matrix, I found out it’s pretty cool out here. The adjustment period is rough though. It’s harsh and it takes a lot out of you.
We’re having this talk because I care about you. I want you to be successful. But for you to be successful, you must change how you think. You won’t be able to make half of what you make or equal to what you make without vigorous effort.
The reality is that long-term success requires long-term determination. If you continue to think you are going to skate past all of that hard work and just somehow start making this money, you’re wrong. Some of you will find a scheme or tactic that will work for a minute before it comes tumbling down because you never learned how to build your business correctly in the first place.
This is not tough love, this is mother fucker love. You’re thinking like a loser because you don’t think you can do it. You’re thinking like a scared little bitch because you want something for nothing and you think you should have it because you’re entitled.
Get real. Understand you are not competing with Bill across the street. You’re competing with some guy from China. You’re competing with some guy in India. That’s who you’re fucking competing with. Until you realize that, you are always behind.
If you want to get a few steps ahead, this is what you have to do. Number 1 – look in the mirror and say I really fucked up and I’m going to do better. As long as you think it is someone else’s fault or blame it on who’s in office, I’ll laugh at you.
I started this business in the middle of one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression and it thrived. You know why? Because I thought I could. You have to start thinking you can do this stuff, and do bigger and better things. You’ve got to stop looking for the shortcuts and realize you have what it takes to go the long way.
I’m going to tell you the truth. The reason you are not successful is because you don’t work hard enough. You have a choice. Stop looking for the easy way. Stop looking for magic jelly beans. Stop looking for fast money.
You can’t push this any faster than you push this, if you get my drift.
