Nobody can ever guarantee your own success. If they do, they’re full of shit.

I’m going to tell you this honestly, because nobody else will.

You might not win.

Your life might not get better.

Your dreams might not ever come true.

Just because you believe in yourself, have faith in yourself, want it to happen, and give all your energy to making it happen doesn’t mean that it’s going to happen.

No, I’m not saying this because I want to depress you.

I’m saying it because I want to warn you.

There are people out there who are going to promise you that if you buy their book/video/course/whatever, you are guaranteed a win. You are guaranteed success.

These people are predators, and they will do whatever they can and say whatever they can to take your money and give you very little in return.

When somebody promises you a sure thing, you are being fleeced.

Whether it’s an SEO company who guarantee that your business will reach the first page of any Google search in 30 days, a coach who says that you’ll be a supermodel with their Proven System or an trader who claims they can teach you how to make $1,000,000 overnight, you need to watch out for the guarantee.

There is only one guarantee that counts in this life.

It’s the money-back guarantee.

Anything else, run. 
Anything else, check that you’re still wearing your watch and your wallet is where you left it.

Don’t trust anyone who promises you the world.

Because the fact is, that there are elements of everything that are outside of human control. Sometimes you can do everything right, follow the best system in the world, give it your best shot and put every drop of your blood, your sweat and your tears into it, and it doesn’t work out.

That’s okay. Life is a gamble. You could die walking out your front door or be a millionaire before the end of the year — there’s no way of knowing.

But anytime someone says the future is certain, and they can promise it, they’re bullshitting you. And they’re selling something.

MJ is a good friend of mine (in real life not internet life) who helps people ranging from the A-type who just wants more money, no mental blocks and maximum performance, to those stuck in the mundanity of being chained to their desk and wanting out, right through to trauma survivors trying to find themselves again. He jumped at the idea to gift every reader of my work an hour of his time. All you have to do is email him: mj@mjfitzpatrick.com
