If you don’t believe in you, who is going to…

You have got to go all in… Whatever your station and what your status is with your business, you have to strive for more. There is always more out there for you. To truly achieve something great, you must never settle where you are.

If you ever think you are at the top of your game, you got things twisted; there is always more. There are always greater heights you can reach. You must want more… and believe for greater heights.

You also mustn’t find yourself attempting to build greatness out of one income source. The most successful and wealthy people in the world have multiple sources of income and you need to grow and adapt.

You must be wise and mindful in how you grow…. Be calculated in your decisions; do not act blindly based on emotions or false hope. Know what you are getting into but grow and diversify. We all have somewhere started; those of us reaching for greatness, are not resting there.

I have known I would be working for myself one day since I was a kid… Mom would tell me stories of how her and Dad had multiple businesses over the years. They were so amazing. I was always so proud and amazed by them and wanted to be even better having learned from their teachings. I wanted them to be proud of me.

As an adult now with a beautiful wife and beautiful children, I want them to be proud of me the way I was of Mom and Dad. Even more than proud, I want our boys to see their true potential through my success. I want them to see and know just what they can accomplish. There is nothing out of their reach.

One of their favorite Grandma stories that they have me tell them over and over quite frequently is about Grandma’s car. When I was little, about 4 or 5… Mom had this car that she liked but ultimately had some problems. At the time we lived in this trailer park community; it was nice but had these gravel driveways. I got some crayons and asked Mom for a shoe box. I drew a picture of a car and put it in the box. I told Mom I was going to collect screws and metal from outside and build her a car that she deserved to have. The awesome part is the way she responded to me… She told me that it was the nicest thing anyone had ever done for her, and she knew that I would build her a cool car. I collected any pieces of metal or screws or anything else like that I could find outside or anywhere and put them in my box. I never did build that car for Mom… When I was a teenager, I worked on her car a lot whenever there was anything wrong. Even though, I never actually built it, she instilled in me the confidence and belief that there was nothing that I couldn’t do. My entire life she always believed I could do anything and always reminded me of that.

If you want to grow your business beyond anything you have ever dreamed, don’t settle and don’t hold back. Give it all you’ve got.

Be audacious! Think big… I’m a good ‘ol Texas boy, I don’t know any other way… and I owe a lot of that to my Momma. She taught me that there was nothing out of my reach.
