Red Pill vs. Blue Pill — Monday Motivation

Take the red pill to your journey and enjoy it!

I get it and we all get it! We all have been programmed that we go to school to find the job of our dreams. But many of you may have notice of recent there has been a change in the game. Degrees are not worth what they use to be and you have debt to show for it. Were stuck in jobs that barely make what is need nor desired to live the lifestyle you want. Maybe you have a talent or a desire to do something different that brings happiness and possibly the financial desire you seek. If your like me you may have the Matrix moment, Choosing the red pill or the blue pill?

The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are popular culture symbols representing the choice between embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill) and the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue pill).

What you must realize is that the people who have created the brands that you consume every day took the red pill. These individuals believed in something greater than their 9–5’s. They believed in the unthinkable! With hard work and dedication, the help of other who believe and staying true to who they are led to the product or service that is known by millions. We love them for it! Just as Neo found his invincibility in the Matrix.

So what are you waiting for? Opportunities are no greater than what they are today! Resources have been created to get your minimum viable product or service put togther faster than ever before. Resources to help finance, collaborate, design and execute a plan to reach your tribe are abundant. And oh yeah there out there! Waiting on you! Ready to dab to your beat!

— So why not take the red pill?
