To be Truly Successful
You must move on
You’ll never truly be successful if you keep holding that grudge. The unfortunate reality of earning $25M is that someone probably screwed you out of $50M
How many days in the last year have you thought “Well shit, I got 8 figures liquid and can do what I want to do every day for the rest of my life.”
And how many days have you spent thinking about the person or organization that mistreated you. Life will never be perfect. Plans change, promises break.
Do you have any idea how many people waste good years rehashing battles of yesterday in their minds? I remember years ago telling my Major League Baseball friend that he sounded like the crazy people I’d see on the streets in SF. Fixated on how he had been lied to. Taken advantage of.
Investing that mental energy wasn’t healthy. And he’s not the only one. Business executives, personal investors all lead stressful lives being fixated on what could have been, rather than focusing on what can be. Not many people earn their freedom in life. If you’re lucky enough to do so, don’t waste a single day of it.
Because unless you plan on dying broke, you’ll run out of time before you run out of money.
