I’ve been with the same girl for 13 years.
13 years ago, I was in my early twenties and dead flat broker than the western political landscape is in 2016.
I got to that point partly from circumstance but mostly from choice. You see, in my youth my only desire was to be an athlete and also a rock star, so I worked hard at those things and although I was good, they didn’t pay my bills. So I got frustrated and changed the things I wanted to get better at.
But whether I was rocking out on stage with my guitar or doing what I needed to progress my career, I always did one thing and that was that I fought hard to be a little better than I was yesterday. I was always competing with one person: Me from yesterday. And as I still do every day, I try and make the yesterday version of me seem lame compared to today’s version of me. So…
But 13 years later, the results of my daily struggle to be better have added up and I now have a bulletproof career and earn more than 99% of the world’s population, I have properties, I have a side business, I have kids who are convinced I can beat up superman and I have a wife who could not imagine her life without me.
Why is that? Am I the best looking guy in the world? No, I’m not. I’m not the richest but I do okay, I’m not the most intelligent but I can hold my own in conversations with my psychiatrist friends.
I sound average, I don’t think I’m special but my wife sees first-hand the effort, the courage, the acceptance of discomfort, the pain that I go through and she respects how I block it out like a woman going through child labour for the 2nd time only to come back and do it again the next day. Does she need me? Puh-lease. My wife is a very successful professional, she does NOT need me but she CHOOSES me. My behaviour, my desire to becoming a better person every day, my commitment to bettering our little world we created is what keeps her coming back
I’m a man on a mission and my wife has seen me go from dead broke to a successful bloke and you know what, she finds it sexy as hell!
My actions, my attitude to life and the way I am with her make her feel like a queen. In return she makes me feel like a King.
My attitude is not a bad one to have and I always try and make it rub off on others, in turn they will shine their positivity back to me.
I have helped a lot of folks with their Career Progression. Download my report: The Four Part Process to Landing A Higher Paying Job and I’ll share not just the process, but also the psychology and strategy that I have developed to consistently land offers for high paying roles over the last ten years.
