This One Person Will Never Lie To You

If Bill Gates, Tony Robbins, Grant Cardone, and Richard Branson were to visit you when you were 10 years old, take you to the nearest library, and tell you:

"Read every book in this building, apply what you learn, and we GUARANTEE you can have anything you desire in this world", would you do it?

It's pretty simple. Just read 10,000 books and take action with the obtained knowledge. Then, all your dreams can come true.

It's crazy, but I think most people would refuse to do it and neglect to read those 10,000 books. I believe only 1 out of 100,000 kids would ever do it. In fact, it's probably even less than that. How can that be?!!!

The reason: Humans are always looking for the shortcut. Most of us think, "Maybe, just maybe, there is an easier way. Maybe we can hit the lottery, meet the right connection, marry into wealth, get lucky, figure out a faster route, design an app and become a billionaire overnight. Maybe, I will have what it takes tomorrow instead of today." Maybe is a word that I do not like.

You see, I am all about controllable metrics. I know the more I post on social media, the more books I read, the more people I meet, the more I exercise, the more I write, the more I invest, the more I try, only good things are destined to happen.

I hear people tell me "Mike, I hate my job and current life situation with a passion. I want to write a book, turn it into a bestseller, and MAYBE leave my corporate job."
