I was just in the park walking my dogs and ran into a friend who sold us our house five years ago. It was his house and it’s kind of weird that you get to know the owner of a previous house when they sell to you. He’s become a good friend and is a really nice guy. He just told me he’s been battling cancer for the past several months. And I was like, “Holy cow, this is crazy.” Really odd bile duct type of cancer, so we obviously spoke about what he’s doing and gave him some recommendations.  I said, “Listen, if there’s anything I can do to help, anyone I can introduce you to, obviously I’m going to do so.”

Life Happens

When things like this happen, it really reminds you of how quick things can turn, how precious every day is. And I say this because in your business, you have the opportunity at your fingertips to really do something magical. It’s not just about making more money and getting more clients, but it’s really about really building something that becomes a safety net for you and your family.  I don’t know if a lot of us really think about this,  I don’t know about you, but for me, I don’t even contemplate my parents passing away. But that’s going to happen, right? And what happens when they do, right? Or what happens if a family member or a child gets sick or you just have these massive bills that you never anticipated. Listen, if you’re not in a position financially to deal with that stuff, you’re not in a good position.

Too Many Settle For the Status Quo

And this is the challenge of North America or the Western World we live in. Things are okay. They’re not that bad. That’s the problem.  There’s no major urgency to do anything. There’s very few businesses, service-based, that blow me away. Most waiters and baristas and Uber drivers are terrible. I mean it’s the bare minimum, right? It is so easy to be just a little bit better nowadays because everyone is just so mediocre and there’s no desire to want to be better. And I think that’s really unfortunate.

When I was 17, I was in Brazil playing soccer. And I was down there for several weeks and speaking to all these Brazilian soccer players. It was really eye-opening, because for them, soccer was the only way out. It was soccer or the favelas, which is the slumps. In the Western worlds, it’s soccer, or it’s the job, or it’s the trust fund, or it’s another job. Or hey, maybe I’ll just sit back on the couch and collect welfare or worker’s comp or whatever. There’s just too many options and it’s not that severe enough for many people to really shake things up and change.

Listen, I have to do my very best to motivate myself to think bigger, to push on, because as soon as you sit and rest on your laurels, you’re done. You’re done. Right? To think you can get by on a couple thousand dollars a month as an income and feel that that’s okay. That is unacceptable. You have to understand that maybe it’s acceptable for this week, but things change, right? And if you’re not able to provide for yourself, for your family or this uncertain future, you’re not at a good position. You’re not in a good situation. And I say this with all the love possible because my goal is to help you realize that your situation is nowhere near as good as you think it is. My situation is nowhere near as good as I think it is, and that’s why I continue pushing to go bigger, to help more people, to earn more, et cetera. Because as soon as we rest on our laurels and accept the status quo and chill, I think we’re done.

Setting A Higher Standard

So I want to call you to a higher standard. And I want you to really, really think about this. If you look at your bank account and your bank account is just incredible. Again, I don’t want to use just money as the marker here, but let’s just be honest, right? If your bank account doesn’t have as much money as you want in there, you have to change something. You have to change something. You have to drive more business. You have to get more clients. You have to serve more people. You have to become more valuable and if you don’t know how to do that, then here’s what I want you to do right now. Go to workwithyuri.com. Let’s book in a time and let’s talk about where you’re at, where do you want to go, why you’re not there yet, and let’s put together a game plan to help you get there.

Listen, we are very, very good at helping health entrepreneurs get clients. We are very, very good at helping you go from where you are to where you want to be. We can do so very, very quickly with a very, very simple business model that we help most of our clients deploy. But you have to be motivated. You have to want it. I can’t make you want stuff. I can’t make you have more motivation. Motivation comes from within. I can inspire you, but the motivation comes from within. So I don’t know what you got to do to look in the mirror, to dig into the depths, but you got to find that. You have to find that drive because when you find that drive, you will become unstoppable. And until you find that drive, you’re going to coast. So if you’re ready to move to the next level, if you’re ready to move out of your current situation and really make your future what it deserves to be, then go to workwithyuri.com right now, book in your time to chat with us and let’s get you there.
