Someone out there will always have it better than you do, so poor circumstances aren't an excuse to not chase your destiny:)

Time is the most important resource - not money. So be careful on how you spend your time :)

Know yourself! I got this form Gary vee. I have not had a mentor or advisor in my life.

Self awareness is very important, because, to be build a sucessful brand, your company has to be a reflection of your values and personality.

Most entrepreneurs want to copy the culture or values of other companies, but they are not in line with them.

If you are a formal guy with the suits and all, your company should reflect that. If you are a casual guy, then dont try to make your company a formal one. Dont build a company by trying to copy others, you will lose.

You have to speak the culture and style of your company because it is a mirror image of you.

But before you can do that, you have to be self aware, you have to know yourself.

Self awareness is everything. The moment I became more self aware, things in my personal life and career improved significantly. At this point in my life if I were giving advice to anyone jumping into a career or starting a business that I received at some point in my life, it would definitely be self awareness. Knowing yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your "why?", will serve you well. - Jon

The best advice was given to me by a gentleman named Grant Cardone.
In his "Playbook to Millions", he talks about the importance of showing up.
"90% of success that people encounter is about showing up", he says.
That statement changed the game for me.

"Children will not do as you say, they will do as you do."

I didn't understand this until I had a child and I appreciate that this simple piece of advice can make or break your relationship with your kids.
