Hard Work Meets Success

I’ve always believed that the greatest achievement each of us can strive for in life is to take full control of your thoughts. Most people go through life as zombies without really confronting that little voice inside their head making excuses such as “I cannot do it,” “I am broke,” or “my parents did not have money like yours.

 

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” – Henry Ford

 

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has discovered that we have an average of 50,000 thoughts a day. How many of them do you think are on the positive side? According to NSF, less than 1% for the average person.

 

At the age of 23, I came to the greatest discovery of my life. I discovered that nothing in this life is given, everything has to be earned. And if I wanted to change my results, I first needed to change my thoughts because…

 

Your thoughts, become words.

Your words, become actions.

Your actions, become habits.

Your habits, become character.

Your character, becomes your destiny

 

I realized that being broke is a temporary financial situation, being poor is a state of mind. It did not matter where I came from or even that I was raised by grandparents who picked up soda cans for a living and did not know how to read or write. The only thing I was 100% sure was that I was not born just to pay bills and die.

 

This how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson went from $7 on his pocket back 1995 to one of the best paid actors.

 

How Kevin Plank (Founder of Under Armor) went from $40,000 in debt in his first day of business while living in his mom’s basement to one of the best clothing brands in sports.

 

How Oprah Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi from a teenage single mother to become the richest African-American of the 20th century.

 

If you have a mindset that limits your potential, then you will likely accept limited results in your life.

 

Whatever that dream may be in your mind… whether it’s unlimited time with your family, living the rest of your life from a backpack while traveling the world, having the piece of mind of knowing your family is financially covered for life, or basically changing the future of mankind through your leadership…

 

Having the positive mindset to say “I am going to make this happen no matter what it takes” is the ultimate expression of freedom that each of us can experience. I happen to think that anyone can accomplish anything in life no matter where the starting point is because all it takes is a decision of making that shift in the way you think to take full control of your thoughts.

 

Hi, my name is Concepcion Guzman and I’m grateful that our paths have crossed. I’m a father, entrepreneur, speaker, author, and a business opportunities addict.

 

I got married at the age of 22 to a one-of-a-kind women right after finishing my Masters degree in Information System and getting my first job. I quickly realized that working in a cubicle building somebody else dream would not allow me to provide my family the lifestyle they truly deserve, so I turned to build my own businesses to find a better solution.

 

During my early stages of entrepreneurship I learned the ins and out of how to successfully start and run a business, but there was one problem. I did not know how to put everything together in order to avoid setbacks and costly trial and errors. I was shooting in the dark without night vision lens, I needed a mentor. Someone who could take me under their wing and show me the proven ways of success.

 

I found that mentor, in fact I found 2. And even though I had to paid the price with my time, it was worth every second because in a very short period of time it skyrocket to numbers I could not even comprehended at the time.

 

If you’re an entrepreneur, or want to become one, I believe the best way to avoid making costly mistakes and saving yourself a lot of time, money and frustration is to find someone who’s already doing what you want to do, successfully, and model them.

 

That’s the key to success. Follow them, adopt their belief systems, get close to them, and take action! That’s exactly how I went from growing up in a wooden house with zinc ceilings which got inundated every time it rained and a family budget of $300 a month to owning multiple business and living my dream life. And I want to tell you that you can do it too!

 

My friend never give up your dreams, it does not matter how far they seem today. There is nothing in the world that can stop you from reaching it. Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great. If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got.

 

Your path may not have been the easiest one so far but just remember that the most beautiful views often come after the most courageous climbs. Keep pushing and do not look back, your view is waiting. Believe you can and you are halfway there.

Morning Ritual?

Many people ask me about my morning ritual. I am not big on meditating as many great entrepreneurs suggest, but I am great at visualizing through reading and journaling. This morning habit is the biggest factor of my success. It set me up for greatness each and every morning. I suggest everyone to create a morning habit that prepare them for the day ahead. Here is the breakdown of my time every morning.

  • Reading
  • Exercising
  • Listening Audio
  • Journaling
