I hope this email finds everyone having just come off a fantastic weekend, where you were able to grow, develop, relax, and spend time with the ones you love. Today is Monday, so here comes the Monday lecture. Be your best this week. Get up early and go to bed late, fighting for what you know to be what’s right. Don’t let others effect your attitude, your passion, and your results. Go all in! I wanted to talk a little off the cuff today. I seem to be doing that more and more these days. When something is on my mind, I will speak it. There is a couple of quotes that have come to me a lot lately with all the things that make up a day in the Cram home.
1. “First they ignored us, then they laughed at us, then they tried to fight us, then we won.”
2. “The road to the top is a lonely road.”
We learn a lot of principles together while researching, writing, and reading this blog. They are principles that most the world will NEVER grasp on to. But we do them because we want to create success that the rest of the world is not having. As you take chances, wake up early to self-develop, and as you push out of the comfort of mediocrity, people will laugh at you, they will reject you, and they will talk bad about you. And the toughest part is that it will be some of those are the closest to you. Grant Cardone says, “People will ignore you, then they will hate you, then they will respect you.” You just have to keep on fighting for what you know is right, and life always has a way of coming full circle.
This is what I have come to realize; God doesn’t mess around when it comes to those that want something great in life. He is going to make you earn every bit of it. And he is going to make you earn it over and over and over again. He will NEVER give you a hand out if you want long-lasting success and happiness. NEVER! So you might as well embrace it. Because it is coming! And through the whole process there is one thing that you always have; your attitude. So stop expecting hand outs and stop expecting that all of your loved ones will support you through it all. Hold first and steadfast to your purpose. And just keep your eye on the prize.
