We have to be very careful on whom we accept advice from; Iâ€™m following in the footsteps of Robert Kiyosaki. He was poor and homeless for 9 months of his life. People said, why you donâ€™t get a job, he and his wife lived in a friendâ€™s home for those 9 months.
With my recent plans to move down to San Francisco, and talking with some close friends they can not believe that I would do such a thing. Youâ€™re not going to finish school? What happens if it all fails, you canâ€™t just get rich quick wes? Why donâ€™t you just get a job, what happens if your business fails, what will you do then. Youâ€™re making a huge mistake by not going to college.
That is why the title of my blog is what it is, people think Iâ€™m crazy, although what they donâ€™t realize is that Iâ€™m not interested in being secure, I want the risk, I want to start a business, and quite frankly, I refuse to get a job, and thatâ€™s why everyone is recommending finishing school, so I can get a job. That just pushes me even farther away from school, people just donâ€™t understand.
And theses people, although I love my associates who give me advice, and are really just looking to help me, although they do not have the lifestyles in which I want to live. I do not personally have a very few amount of people I know who are successful entrepreneurs with businesses which are systematic. Most of the people, in fact only 5% of the population is not financially independent, that means 95% of the people YOU know arenâ€™t financially independent.
It simply comes down to this basic idea, â€œIf you buy someoneâ€™s opinion, you buy their lifestyle.â€ You got to be careful from who you accept advice from, if you havenâ€™t read Robert Kiyosakiâ€™s on the cash flow quadrant, youâ€™ll know what I mean.
Just down to earth advice: People will suggest you what to do, and why you should do it. Do those people really know you, are they rich? If there not, you shouldnâ€™t be listening to them, or do so, but very cautiously. I do not personally know anyone rich yet, although I have my books, and I know what they did, and they did what most people do not do. No one in my family of many people has a real entrepreneurial business.
Iâ€™m like the outcast, one person, who rebels against the system. Or they say, but Wesley, all of your old businesses have failed. Well yes, sort of. Maybe the businesses have failed, but every time I learn. Matter of fact, I plan on loosing more and more, Iâ€™ve lost than most people have, and because of that I will succeed more than others. If I got a job, because I wanted to be safe and secure, that is failure to me, to settle down, and be less than I can be, and settle for a monthly paycheck. NO, Iâ€™m not going to do that.
People act like you have to go to college to be successful. Iâ€™m not going to sit here and take the advice from other individuals who are not rich, when what I want to do, is be rich, so I listen to those who are rich. I love my contacts, I appreciate them, but sorry, Iâ€™m going to do, what others do not do, I’am going to do the exact opposite than the masses.
Ryan Allis is a 22 year old entrepreneur, his company grosses around 5 million a year, he said college can wait. Thomas Edison never went to school, Bill Gates dropped out of college, Mark Zuckerberg of FaceBook dropped out of college. My parents friend Mike Merifield, I donâ€™t even believe finished high school and he does multi million dollar deals, it is just extremely crazy the idea, that you have to go to school, and you are making a big mistake if you donâ€™t go to school.
This is a rant, but it comes down to the simple idea, that you donâ€™t have to go to school, if you are not passionate about school, and want to start a business, well do that, and that is success, doing what it is you want to do, and doing a good job at it. Success isnâ€™t going to school; success is whatever you want to do in life, and doing it.
Hey if my business fails, which some probably will, thatâ€™s great, Iâ€™m going to keep going, and make it happen, and so should you my entrepreneur friend. Again, that is why my title is what it is, because I’m going to do what most people think is irrational, all I’m doing, is what the rich people do, and since most people aren’t rich or don’t think like rich people do, most people do not understand. I’am going to force myself as in the early post. I HAVE TO MAKE THIS WORK, AND I WILL MAKE THIS WORK, I’AM GOING TO PUT MYSELF INTO A SITUTATION WHERE I HAVE TO SUCEED.Â FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION, I’LL BURN THE SHIPS AND CANNOT GO BACK, I MUST SUCCEED AND WILL MAKE IT WORK AND YOU WILL SEE TOO WITHIN 5 YEARS.
