Go for it just go for it.
I didn’t grow up with money, we weren’t rich by any means,
But I knew I wasn’t going to college, I knew that wasn’t reality.
I didn’t really want to go to college.
One of the things that I was very lucky in my life with is
I knew exactly what I wanted to do from the time I was a young age
I knew I wanted to be in the fight business,
and people thought it was crazy.
I worked in Boston at a place called the Boston Harbor Hotel.
I was a bellman in there, I was 19 years old, I made good money you know.
There’s some guys that they get those jobs and those are the type of jobs…
They’re lifers, they want those jobs forever.
It’s a good job it’s not a bad job, just wasn’t for me.
And I was literally standing in the lobby one day
and I’m like what the hell am I doing here,
What am I doing here.
This isn’t me.
This isn’t what I want.
And I walked out the front door and one of my good friends
-he’s still one of my good friends today-
says what are you doing,
I said I’m quitting.
When you get out of bed every morning, right?
You get up out of bed life is standing right there to kick you in the face.
Leg cocked, ready to go, to kick you in the face.
Because every day when you get up bad shits coming at you.
Forget about work your personal life everything.
Car don’t start – this – that.
Life is ready to get you.
You know and you got to get up,
and you got to fight through that bullshit every day.
You have to.
You got to fight through all the shit that life throws at you.
Then you get to a point where life’s throwing a bunch of shit at you.
And now works’s throwing a bunch of shit at you.
Your business that you have to fight for every day.
And you have to get up and you have to have that to
GET UP and fight every day man.
Go for it just go for it.
Believe me I’m living proof that it can happen.
First of all when you have a business idea
there’s always going to be detractors
and people that think you know it won’t work
you’re always going to have those people around you
and in your life even when you’re successful.
Believe me, it gets worse when you’re successful.
Anything you do positive in your life and anything that’s huge,
It will immediately be surrounded by negativity, right?
Immediately get ready for it,
because no matter how successful you become,
one thing never goes away, negativity.
Their opinion means nothing .
It is literally an opinion, it’s negative bullshit and it means nothing to you.
It doesn’t mean anything, it doesn’t affect
unless you’re the type of sick twisted type of person like me
that likes to let it fuel you.
It’s like your fuel and other than that, it’s useless, it means nothing.
Do your thing, stay on your course, stay focused,
and keep your eye on the prize and everything comes together.
looking for “fuck you money” ,
you’re in the wrong place already.
You already know you’re not in the right place.
I can’t stand three-day weekends,
I hate three-day weekends,
but I’m like I want Monday to come again,
that’s how much I love what I do.
If that’s not your mentality every weekend when you’re at home,
like you’re dreading Monday, man, stop,
stop and get another job, because you’re in the wrong place.
That’s not healthy for you.
And at the end of the day,
it’s really about that you love what you’re doing, and it’s about the journey.
the people you’re doing it with,
that you’re having fun, you’re getting up every day,
and you’re all working towards the same goal,
whatever it might be, it’s a very fulfilling feeling,
It really is a very fulfilling feeling.
Because I’ve been where most people have been.
I’ve been in the shitty job that you’re just
trying to pay your bills and you’re
trying to make ends meet, and you’re
miserable you’re doing it because you
have to do it because you have to pay
your bill because you need money.
Once you break out of that you find what it
is you truly love to do it’s really not work.
it’s actually fun and you enjoy
every day of your life.
From what I’ve learned as I look back on my life,
everything in life is about timing.
it really is about timing.
Right time, right place, right everything.
And I also believe that you create your own timing in life too.
What’s the worst thing that can happen if you try,
if the day that I walked out of that hotel right,
and I went to do this, it doesn’t work out,
I can go back and be a bellman again,
whenever I want to, you can always go back and do that,
the worst part is not trying,
You have to try!
Nobody’s ever gonna do anything without trying,
it’s never the right time,
it’s like I can’t now, I got this truck I just bought,
I got payments on this freaking thing, you know, I got this……
If you do that to yourself, you’ll never do anything.
Forget the truck, forget this, forget that.
Go for it
Just go for it believe me,
I’m living proof that it can happen!
