It’s a Monday and I’m sat here on the poolside at our resort in Thailand working on our internet business thinking to myself, “this is the life…”
I mean wow, I couldn’t be more grateful for the lifestyle our team gets to live today but sometimes I forget to realize the amount of sacrafices it took to get to this point in my life…
Did you know there is a dark side to freedom?
I shot a video you can watch here:
What I mean by that is that we can sometimes get so consumed by overnight success stories that when we see people doing what it is we most desire we think to ourselves that “they just got lucky…”
However, nothing could be further from the truth…
What most people don’t recognise is the true cost of becoming successful… whether that be losing a lot of weight, climbing up that corporate ladder or building your own 7-figure online empire.
Most of us want the outcome, but were not prepared to pay the true cost…
The cost of the pain required to experience true pleasure.
Because nothing in life comes easy, it always cost you something.
You want a better body? it’s going to cost you more sweat in the gym.
You want a loving relationship? It’s going to cost you more tears and heartbreak to find that perfect partner.
You want more freedom? It’s going to cost you more time and more money…
Yep, you heard me correctly… But isn’t that the only reason we start our own internet business in the first place?
Here’s the thing…
When you first get started it’s going to cost you more time learning new skills, it’s going to cost you more money to get educated and invest capital into your business.
That is the dark side of freedom that nobody wants to talk about. The team and I get to live an awesome lifestyle today simply because we paid the costs up front and more importantly got to WORK.
The good news is that if your prepared to pay the costs (at least initially while you build your business), then all the time, all the money, all the abundance and all the freedom in the world comes streaming back to you.
That is simply how the laws of the universe work.
For every up there is a down. For every left there is a right. For every pleasure there is a pain…
If life was constantly sunshine and rainbows we’d never come to realize what the hell pleasure even was!
So, as we begin a new week I want you to reflect on your goals and what you truly desire and ask yourself, “Am I willing to pay the costs to achieve my dreams?”
If yes… Awesome! Get to work and soon all your dreams will begin to appear like an overnight success to the rest of the world.
Hope you enjoy today’s video message… and as always, I’d love to hear your personal thoughts on this subject.
