How To Never EVER Be Broke Again
You are broke. Why are you broke? Have you ever asked yourself that question? How can you never be broke again? I was broke when I was a teenager. When I came to Canada with nothing and no money, I was $150,000 in debt. I was so frustrated. I tried so many different things. I started and failed thirteen businesses. Not three, not ten, but thirteen businesses. It was all a disaster. I not only didn’t make money from the businesses, but I was also in debt. I lost all my mom’s money. I borrowed from friends and family. I didn’t know why. I wanted to succeed so badly, but I just couldn’t make it work until I had an epiphany. What was the epiphany? You don’t have a money problem. You have a skill problem. If you try to solve your money problem with just money, your problem doesn’t get solved. The money problem is not solved by money. The money problem is solved by your intelligence, your mindset and your skill set.When you learn to close, you'll never be broke again. Click To Tweet
What am I talking about your skill set? I want you to think about some of the highest paid people in society. Let’s say a doctor. Let’s say an attorney. Let’s say a lawyer, an accountant or an engineer who is making a decent high income. What do they have? They have specialized skill sets that you may not have. The people with low-income skill sets in our society, low-income jobs, it doesn’t mean they don’t work hard. It doesn’t mean they don’t hustle. It doesn’t mean they don’t work long hours, but the skill sets they have that they offer to the marketplace, to society, people, companies, they’re not willing to pay big money for. I call them low-income skills. That’s the problem. You try to make big money with low-income skills. You need to develop your high-income skills in order to make more money. If you’re struggling in life and in business, I can guarantee you the biggest issue how I’ve overcome how I was struggling, how I overcome not want to be broke again is I learned to close. I learned to communicate ideas, thoughts, and concepts.
When you learn to close, you’ll never be broke again because in business, nothing happens until something is sold. In life, nothing happens until something is sold. You’re single, you’re not a good closer. You can’t close. You’re not getting other people to do what you want. They’re not following your leadership. You can’t close. You’re not getting sales because you’re a lousy closer. You can’t close. When you can close, you can move, you can influence, and you can persuade people. Everything that you want in life, other people already have them. I don’t care what is it you want. Resources, money, capital, influence, or relationships, whatever it is that you want, you got to close someone else to give it to you. If you’re struggling financially, it means you’re a lousy closer. It is that simple. That’s the downside. The upside is this, once you know how to close, you will know how to create income on demand. You will know how they make money. You have the ability to make money anytime you want. That’s the power of closing. That’s how you never go broke again.
If you are not making the money you want, it’s not a money problem, it’s a skill problem. Solve your skill problem, develop a particular skill set, and then combine your skill set with the mindset. What am I talking about when it comes to mindset? I’m talking about your belief, your ideas and your attitude towards something. If you combine a strong, proper and abundant mindset with a strong high-income skill set, you’ll never be broke again. You cannot maximize your skill set without a proper mindset. You need to have the two. If you have the two, you’ll never go broke again. I want you to be absolutely, brutally honest with yourself. If you’re struggling financially, what kind of skills do you have? Probably none, except the skill of bitching. What value do you bring to the marketplace? If you are not where you want to be, you’re not growing as fast as you want to be. You’re not increasing your income as fast as you want to be. Your income can only grow to the extent that you do. Your wealth can only grow as fast as you do.
