“How you do anything is how you do everything”
“Circumstances do not change responsibility”Key Points
1. Your Responsibilities Aren’t Affected by Your Circumstances
The vast majority of modern men have been castrated by a societal conditioning that tells them it’s “ok” to shirk their responsibilities. Men who allow the whims of their emotions and their day to day circumstances to dictate their actions and responses.
We see men who allow the whims of their emotions and their day to day circumstances to dictate their actions and responses.
Fathers who ignore their duties to their children, husbands who shrug off their responsibilities to their wives, and workers who simply aren’t willing to put in the work necessary to keep their clients happy.
And as a result, our society has been left scratching its head in confusion wondering “Where have all the real men gone”?
The real men are still out there… They are just harder to find.
They are the men who do not allow their feelings and problems to interfere with their duties.
The men who provide for their families, prioritize their relationships and take care of their bodies.
The men who are willing to say no to luxuries and parties now so that they can have an incredible quality of life for their family later.
Are you one of those men?
2. Resourcefulness is the Ultimate Resource
Markets crash, businesses crumble, people die, and life happens.
The greatest breakthroughs of human history have often come in times where resources were slim and things were looking grim.
But a handful of (now) iconic individuals were willing to look at the circumstances and negative situation and see it for what it was… An opportunity.
You see, if you are resourceful enough, no circumstance or turmoil will prevent you from success.
You can always find a way to make money and create a life of happiness and freedom for yourself.
You must simply learn to look for it.
Resourcefulness is your greatest resource in the tumultuous and unpredictable world that we live in.
If you can learn to cultivate this trait in yourself and others, you will find a way to be successful.
No matter what.
3. Despite What You’ve Been Told, Work-Life Balance Is Crucial
With the proliferation of the “Hustlers” mentality and the idea that grinding it out 24/7 365 is the only way to success, many of you are operating under the misguided belief that work-life balance is b.s.
Bedros found this out first hand when, after several consecutive months of high-stress projects, he snapped and suffered from multiple anxiety attacks (initially mistaking them for heart attacks).
These episodes scared Bedros into making a change and, after kicking and clawing his way through the transition, he began to ease himself out of business scenarios that he found stressful.
He cut back on his time in the office, started prioritizing his health and family again, and learned to delegate and outsource like crazy.
He’s healthier, wealthier, and happier than ever before.
Hustling your way to the top is great.
Grinding and working hard are great.
But they must be tempered by taking a step back and making time for yourself and your family.
4. The Quickest Way to Overcome Adversity is to Reframe It
Life can suck.
Things happen and circumstances outside of your control can knock you on your ass.
But the quickest way to overcome any adversity is to reframe it.
Learn to see challenges as opportunities.
Learn to see setbacks as an opportunity to grow.
Learn to see failure as education.
The more that you can reframe the difficult things in life, the easier they will become.
This will not make your problems go away… But it will make them easier to deal with.
5. All Success is Preceded by Risk
If you want real success, you are going to have to take real risks.
End of story.
For the majority of A+ players, every big breakthrough, achievement, and milestone were preceded by even bigger risks.
For some people this meant a breakup, for others, taking out a line of credit to fund a business, and for others still, it was dropping out of college and pursuing their dreams of their own volition, without the help of mom and dad.
For Bedros, risk has come in many forms, from turning down six-figure job offers to taking out tens of thousands of dollars in credit, to leveraging his house, to purchasing a $4 million office space.
But all of these risks ended paid off in the long run.
And while you are on your own unique path to success, you must remember that you will be required to take risks and make sacrifices that are uncomfortable.
But when you do… You will have no choice but success.
And that’s where the real magic happens.
