Drawing State from the Successful

One of the favorite parts of my job is meeting and talking with successful people. It’s not so much about picking their brain and getting advice, but being able to draw energy from them and feel how they feel – think how they think.

I was talking to this guy George, who is a multi-million dollar chiropractor and I remembered him saying “If I do something, it’s gonna make me a hundred grand, and if it doesn’t work, I’ll find a different way to make a hundred grand from it”.

This isn’t just the way he approaches money, this is how he approaches life.

You talk to these guys and you realize that these guys don’t lose, not because they’re really smart and business savvy, but because the thought of losing doesn’t really cross their mind. They don’t hold themselves back, or hesitate. They just find a way to win, find a way to make money, and if it doesn’t work, they look for a different way…and this is fun to them.

One of the things I struggle with is that I constantly evaluate my commitment with a reward-risk ratio, and I tell myself, “I don’t know If I should put this much effort into something that might not work”.
