There seems to be another kind of disease going on in the world today.
Where people don’t do what they say.
It’s amazing, too. Because they’ll literally tell you something, and you look at them and say, don’t you realize?
We have it in writing.
I have texts. I have e-mails. I have signed agreements with you. But yet you’re concocting a whole different story right now.
It’s unbelievable. Do what you say.
A friend of mine was doing a real estate deal.
He had a couple of deals he did with a couple of different people.
Bought somebody out of a partnership.
Went to go buy them out of the next partnership, and they told him that he still owes them money and profit for another deal.
He went back in his e-mails and saw that they agreed upon a number to pay off. He went back and looked at his check even though he remembered all of this, and guess what, the check verified what the e-mail said.
Then he went and found the signed agreement that verified the check and verified the e-mail. That this was a final pay off for this deal. But yet the other person, because they know that that person was going to make money in the next deal, wanted to go and get some money and say they owed it.
Fucking do what you say. Do what you say and say what you do.
It’s amazing how many people don’t do this on a daily basis.
People get paid and then they don’t do what they say.
People strike a deal and then they don’t do what they say. And they don’t realize that most people have left a huge paper trail behind. A gigantic, ginormous one.
Then there are the people who do deals and then they get bought out and then they’re like well, I don’t lose any money because I’m getting bought out right now. Where, when you do a deal with somebody, is there this clause that says no matter what happens during this deal you will not lose money at all, whether it’s real estate, stocks, whatever it might be. Where is that clause, because I want to that clause, too. Because I have done many deals in my life. Some I’ve made money, some I’ve lost money. That’s just what life is all about.
It’s pretty amazing how so many people want to change deals on the fly. Let’s just change it right now so it works out for the best of me.
Do what you say.
When I tell you I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it.
If I tell you I’m going to give you money for something, I’m going to give you money for something.
If I tell you I’m going to take care of this, I’m going to take care of that. I’m going to do what I said.
But yet so many people don’t. And it seems to be something that’s running rampant in today’s culture.
They agree to an agreement, they get paid out on the agreement, and then down the road they want more because the agreement that they got on doesn’t fit now because they actually need money in their life and they thought about it over the years and they felt like they should get more even though they already hand shook and already signed an agreement.
It’s called low vibration, a lack of integrity. And I’m tired of anybody who thinks they can get away with it.
Don’t pull that shit on me. Because you’re not going to get away with it. In the past, maybe I was a little nice and I caved in a little bit. But now, fuck that.
Don’t let people who go back on their words get the best of you at all. Don’t do that at all. Hold them accountable for what they have to say in the deal. Hold them accountable to the deal that they did.
It’s time to hold people accountable for what they do.
