Episode # 64: Flight 518


For weeks I would see different planes flying overhead.

I would stare at them, every single one of them.

I was beginning to think of not wanting to be on a plane.

I was thinking even more about doing what I love, and, how much longer and how many more things will I do in my life that are NOT what I want to do.

Would I draw the line?

When would I draw the line.

Should I suck it up, or have I sucked up enough?

For days it felt wrong. Going away again, getting on a plane, and again, doing 1 more thing that is NOT what I love.

Do what you love I always say, follow your passion.

Dan Kennedy speaks of creating a business that governs YOUR rules - for one guy, it meant never wearing a tie unless it was a funeral.

Will I never get a plane? Hardly - it'll happen again.

But, being on the plane, just about ready for take off, I said "F**k this" - got up and told them I need to get off the plane.

I did.

I walked off.

I drew the line.

I began the very beginning of creating a business around my own rules.

Gene Landrum speaks of breakdown to breakthrough - well, this was my breakdown period.

It was the straw that broke the camel's back.

This is the year where "real work" ends and my passion begins. These are THE years, lose them now and you can never get them back.

Flight 518....it never happened....but now MORE things will happen....


BIG thanks goes to my wife, for her support, my kids, for their amazing love although they don't really know it yet, my mastermind crew who supported me and my friends who supported me.

Sometimes it's rough and tough, but we all make it through these times.

Kill it!
