What You Control

Hello, my friend and future millionaire. 

Welcome to this episode of The Money Wheel. 

My name is Don Shade. 

Well, if you’re still listening after the phase two, tough love episode, I guess you’re ready to move forward onto the next steps.

Do you realize that there are people that got offended by the way I talked to you in the last podcast telling you if you want nice go to church, if you want a friend to buy a dog, that kind of stuff upset them and they let it screw up their path to their dream.

Hopefully you’re not one of those people.

You know, I’m pretty outspoken; I’m a straight forward type of guy. 

I look the world in the eye. What’s going to happen with you the longer that you’re in business and the more you do something like this, the wealthier you become, the more you’re going to turn into that type of person that people used to intimidate.

You really don’t anymore because you know what you’re doing outside of the corporate world, so to speak When this whole thing started, I was one of those guys.

If you shook my hand, odds were good I wouldn’t look you in the eye because my self confidence was down.

Being somebody that had cerebral palsy, a so-called handicap compared to the rest of the world, I just didn’t feel that I stood up to where everybody else was until I got my business rolling and I was starting to see some success. 

Then I started to get the self-confidence that I needed. 

It came over time dealing with people.

As we move forward into phase two, what do I want you to realize? 

The first thing we’re going to look at is what is it that you have total control over in your life.

What is it that no matter what happens on a day to day basis, it’s up to you to make this decision and move things forward.

Well, the answer to that is this: I don’t care whether you’re a billionaire or you’re flat broke; The one key thing that we all have is 24 hours in a day.

Nobody gets any more; Nobody gets any less. 

The only difference between you and that billionaire is the way you spend that 24 hours.

I’m going to take a second and share a story with you. 

Back when I was a teenager, my dad would talk to me and kind of coach me.

When I was looking for my first job and that sort of thing and what my dad would say to me was, listen, you’re not on equal ground with everybody else, because your legs aren’t as good. 

I’m not necessarily as fast as what somebody else is but I can’t control all that.

That’s the hand I was dealt, but what I can control is I’m there every day. 

I’m on time. 

Every day, I do the best I can for those eight hours.

That’s the way I want you to look at your business. 

I want you to make the choice that when you’re working in your business, you’re going to make that time count.

Well, once again, this was just something to make you think.

That’s everything I have for this episode of The Money Wheel.
