I’ve had a life full of big deals. Not just deals in the business sense either. Big deals like adoption, bankruptcy, homelessness, prison, addiction, etc… I’ve had to deal with a lot of stressful situations, which means I’ve learned a lot of big lessons. Allow me to share the biggest lesson I’ve learned in life so far.
“If you’re not losing sleep over it, it’s not that big of a deal.”
Worry never gained anyone anything ever.
Those 60 nights were sleepless.
Instead of worrying, I worked my ass off.
During the day, as a LO, I wrote as many mortgages as possible. My pitch was, “I’m leaving, come with me and I’ll give you the bottom rate. Screw this place I want you to win.” I did a shit load of mortgages in those six months. Simultaneously, I spent the night learning about social media and digital marketing.
This single habit has made the biggest impact on how I do life.
So, let’s recap. The only way to stop worrying is by taking action towards your goal. Once you start the process to solve your worry, you no longer worry, you work. Change this one habit and you’ll damn near master your own mind. Which is a hard thing to do. Our minds are so powerful that people can literally worry something into existence. I’d rather put my focus on the solution and take action toward it. I’d recommend you do the same!
