Hey guys welcome back. In my last post I talked about how people reacted to me not wanting to take over the family business. To see the full post you can go here
I ended it by talking about how I was really motivated by Jim Rohn to start dreaming again. For the majority of years after graduating High School, and going a few years of College, I pretty much knew what my future was going to look like.
Run the family business.
By now you should know that I recently decided to go a different route..
My regular circle of friends wanted nothing to do with that. They were so comfortable with where they were, it got to the point where I couldn’t really be around them much.
You would be surprised on how hard it was to find people who still had a dream in life. Who thought differently. Someone who understood the concept that in order for them to get where they wanted to get, they had to change their mindset.
I remember hearing an audio where Jim Rohn said these exact words “You are an average of the 5 people you spend most of your time with”
This hit me like a brick wall. I started to think about the people who I was hanging out with, and could instantly figure out why I was having issues moving forward with my mindset.
This led me to look for networking events or groups in my area where I could meet like minded people.It took some time, actually a good amount of time.
The group was of about 10 people which really made it cool since it was pretty intimate. One of the guys there, I felt really resonated with my personality. He was a local business owner who had started a local Pest Control company, you can actually check out his site www.pestcontrolmcallentexas.com .After the meetup. I went up to him and asked what made him start his own company.
