My question for you today is are you self-selecting into the right group?
I want to talk to you about something here. About a post by the famous, one of my favorite people, Steve Larson, formally of ClickFunnels; now out on his own OfferMind, I’m going to the OfferMind event in September 2nd and 3rd up in Boise.
He made this post. It’s just a simple post, and if you look at it, it says, “Work smarter, not harder,” and you can see somebody’s just walking up stacks of money and somebody else is climbing these big steps and it’s causing a big problem, right?
Here’s the thing. I won´t tell you to who the comments are from. But one person says, “That’s not working smarter, dumb ass, that’s having rich parents.”
-Oh, really? That’s nothing to do with anything.
Or, “That was the worst comparison of working smarter, not harder.” Or, “Or be rich.” Then we got a good comment there by somebody who’s going to make it big, already look like they’re making it big.
“I’d say smarter and harder and try and get there even faster.” That’s a good comment. Like try both, right?
“Well, if I had that kind of money I would definitely work smarter.” -Really?
So, my point to you is are you self-selecting to the wrong group? I can tell you right now on that post who’s going to be successful and who’s not just based on their comments, because here’s somebody saying, giving a positive quote out to the world. It’s very common quote, “Work smarter, not harder.” And immediately you’ve got people saying, “Well, if I had rich parents or if I was richer I would do that.”
Most of these guys, especially Steve, everybody that look up to they built their wealth themselves. It wasn’t because of rich parents. The government’s out there telling people that to hate successful people, to demonize success and entrepreneurs, and it’s working for some people, apparently.
Don’t let it happen to you. Self-select in the right group, and if you don’t agree with what somebody’s saying, that’s fine, too, but, man, I tell you. I can look in all these and everybody’s got them. There’s these comments, just little prickly comments people make, and it’s not being born with money. It’s being born with the ability to have the right mindset.
And, anyway, I love Steve Larson, and that guy tells it like it is. It was a great post, and so I posted on there, I commented back and said, I basically said what I’m writing to you in this note. Self-selecting, I said, “This is an epic post because you can see how people self-select what group they’re in”.
Either the negative and blame others unsuccessful or the successful or soon-to-be successful group just by their reactions, and it has nothing to do with the current amount of money they have. Because there was people on here that responded positively that had money and there was people that responded positively who don’t have money, and then the opposite’s true. Just people that are out to blame other people.
You just got to watch what you’re saying every day, watch your comments and think what you’re attracting to your life by what you say and self-select in the right group. Because we want to stick together and self-select from the same group, and that’s what is awesome about social media is you can be around the right people all the time, getting in masterminds, finding like-minded people. I love it.
So with that I will say have a great day and just make sure that you are self-selecting into the right group. Write to you soon, everybody.
