This is for everyone who hates on money.

This is for those who say money isn’t important, who simply go to work without attention on money & lie to yourself & loved ones.

To all those who quit a job to start a business not because they wanted to make money but because they didn’t want a job.

This is for all those people out there that have given up on money.

This is for all those out there that don’t do enough to earn money.

This is for all those who waste money. The baller’s code for pretenders and over-spenders.

You guys that hate on money…I hope you hate this message but don’t hate on me.

Money is important.

Money is vital.

Shame on you and anyone that tells you money is not important.

When you quit thinking so much about how you feel, how you look, what you hate doing, your issues, your deficiencies, your upbringing and your special situation you will have a chance to create the success your life deserves.

YOU, YOU, YOU! I hear people say, “I don’t care about success” or angrily blurt, “I don’t need to make money” or “I don’t like sales.”

Again, why is it always about what YOU want, what YOU don’t like and how YOU feel?

You might not care about success, but life demands it to thrive.

Your feelings will not feed your kids, care for your parents, grow your marriage, community, business or fulfill your life purpose.

I know it’s popular to talk about your feelings, your made up labels and all your very special and unique issues, but it’s not going to help anyone, probably not even you.

Life is difficult.

Quit being so selfish and go out and create the success you deserve despite your feelings so your life can survive danger and hardship.

If things don’t go right, you gotta push harder.

You gotta spend money that you didn’t think you were going to spend.

Hang in there, don’t quit, do not quit. Push.

Okay, I know how hard it is. I know it’s hard. I know there are moments when everybody thinks, “Oh my god, what am I doing?!” Just keep pushing.

Your family needs you to do it. Your community needs you to do it.

And when you think about quitting, just understand that everybody you compete with is having the same thought.

Be Great,
