It’s OK Occasionally For Your Children To Be Disappointed

Posted by Aaron Walker on Aug 16, 2019 10:00:00 AM

It's okay sometimes for your kids to be disappointed.  I’m talking about this morning is that when the kids get older and they get out there's gonna be an an area of disappointment that they're going to experience and if they don't experience some level of disappointment today they're not going to be able handle it as adults.

I just want to tell you parents don't beat yourself up today.  If there's things that you can't do for your kids and I really see this a lot in in guys that our coach today that have done very very well financially and they think well because I've done well financially I've got to give my kid everything that they want.  That is not true! I can just tell you right now that is not true!  I want you to give your kids the things that you think that they need and things that they don't need, don't give it to them.  I don't care how much money you've got because you're not doing yourself or the kid any favor whatsoever and giving them everything that they want, that's just not reality.  That's not what life is going to do for them long term.  If you don't teach them to deal with disappointment today, they won't be able to deal with disappointment as an adult.

What Is Your Contingency Plan?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Aug 14, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Have you ever thought about how cool it is that we get a chance every single day to get up and make the most of it? I’m so excited that I get a chance today to make it all that it could be and I can't wait to see what's gonna materialize and unfold on this beautiful August morning.

Hey, what’s your contingency plan? Do you have one? It is important to have a contingency plan. Develop a plan that's gonna, you know, keep going on after after we check out of here. Some of you are like, “You know I'm not that big a deal. I don't have that that big a business and I don't have that many people.” But you got a family that's counting on you. So think through those thing. Regardless if you're a solopreneur. What's your plan? How are you going to take care of your family? If you're a large organization your responsibility obviously is greater and so you've got to have something laid out.

Why Not You?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Aug 5, 2019 10:00:00 AM

When I was 15 years old working at the local pawn shop this guy walked in the store one day and he pulled up in a brand new Cadillac and he was dressed to the nines. This guy had suit and tie, diamond rings, had a gold watch on. I mean this guy was absolutely decked out. I waited on him for a few minutes and then I finally just asked him because you know when you're young you don't have any diplomacy or tack. I went up to him and I said, “Hey, that's such a beautiful car you've got there! And all these diamond rings! How did you make so much money?” He started laughing and he said, “How old are you?” And I said. “Fifteen.” He said, “Let me ask you a question. If you have goals and dreams and you work really hard you can do the same thing.” I said “I know I'm probably not gonna ever have anything.” And he said, “Why not you?”

I want to ask you today, why not you?

Are You Too Tight For Your Own Good?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Jul 31, 2019 12:13:47 PM

Are you too tight for your own good? Let me tell you what I mean by that man. We need to be generous people! What I’m saying is this from a percentage-wise. We all can be very generous and I want to talk about specifically people that take care of you because they deserve it first and foremost. The second reason is, it's good for you. We need to show a sense of generosity. We need to be grateful for the people that are taking care of us. I know when I travel around and speak and go to conferences, if I'm going to stay somewhere like three or four nights, the first night there after they've cleaned my room, I'll write a note and say “Thank you for doing an outstanding job! You guys killed it and I want you to know how much I appreciate it!” And I'll put five ten or fifteen or twenty dollars depending on how long I’m gonna be there for. Then, my room looks like a museum the rest of the week. They're very nice! they're hospitable to me and everything that I do throughout the week any requests they honor it and they feel it. Listen a few dollars goes a long way but just to say thank you to people that take care of you is a big thing! Guys we've got to have a switch our mindset it can’t be "how little can I give”, "It is their responsibility”, 'they're getting paid”…...we can't do that and expect to have great service. So I want to encourage you today to change your mindset just a little bit show your gratefulness be a little bit generous with those people that are serving you and take care of you and you watch how things change for you long term.

I Wish I Had OR I'm Glad I Did

What is it today that you need to start? What is it today that you need to put a stick in the ground and say ""I am tired of talking about it"?
