Why Not You?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Jun 24, 2022 9:00:00 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 you?

What Do You Do When Their Program Doesn’t Fit Your Plan?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Jun 17, 2022 10:03:23 AM

As an entrepreneur for 41 years now, I have faced making difficult decision. Do you make the honorable choice the right decision even when it doesn't fit your plan? How do we expect our children to have a manner that we're proud of them if we as adults are doing these go arounds …… we're finding these loopholes in order to meet our needs? I’d like to encourage you to do the right thing! It is hard! But I want to tell you something. You’ll sleep better at night. There'll be better repercussions as a result of you making great decisions from an integrity standpoint.

Where Do You Do your Critical Thinking?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Jun 3, 2022 10:05:12 AM

I wanted to encourage you guys to do some things a little bit differently and I thought I would just share with you what I do. What I do is that I come over to this place, a park near Old Hickory Lake, periodically and there's these benches that are around the lake and sit and think and get away from the computer, get away from the phone and I write. I make notes. I just come over here kind of relax meditate for a little while and just think how am I going to accomplish a certain task that I'm setting out to do. So maybe it's crazy. Maybe you do all your thinking at the office but for me going to these parks the greenways hanging out looking at nature just thinking. But I’d like to ask you guys, where do you go to do your critical thinking?

You Don’t Need All The Answers To Get Started

Posted by Aaron Walker on Jun 1, 2022 9:00:00 AM

You don't have to know every single answer to get started. A Lot of you guys ask me all the time, “Big A! Tell me about your master play and tell me about all the things that you're accomplishing and how its laid out for you and how you had it playing?” And I'm like slow down a minute, man. Take a breath. I didn't have any of this stuff playing five years ago! When I started View From The Top. Many of you say, “Hey, I don't have the big picture. I can't see it and so therefore I'm not going to get started.” Listen, you're not going to know what it's gonna look like in its entirety. You just need to start. You need to get out of the gate! You need to launch! You need to go for it and then pivot and turn and you will figure it out as you go. Now, don't be reckless. Don’t get out there and do something crazy. Don’t do something with no plan whatsoever. In whatever it is that you're trying I just want to give you the courage today to launch! Just to get out there and then pivot and turn make the the adjustments that you need to in order to be successful. The scary part though is getting out of the gate. You’re like, “Oh man, I can't do this unless I have every “T" crossed and every I dotted.” I just want to tell you that's not true. You can figure this out as you go. Get trusted advisors around you. Get people that are smarter than you are. When you have the Council of the wisdom of the multitudes the people around you that meet with you on a regular basis that can guide you direct you, you too can launch.
