Become a gladiator and start your passion business

Become a gladiator and start your passion business

Become a gladiator and start your passion business and experience the ultimate life you were meant to live. I promised myself I wasn’t going to be defeated by my negative thoughts (fear and limiting beliefs) when it came to starting my passion business. If my dreams were going to fail, they’d have to fail out in the world, not in my head. I asked myself – What’s the worst that could happen when I chase my dreams? I fail? Someone tells me I’m not good enough or smart enough or I’m doing it wrong? Those are bad, but the real horror would be to accept my socially prescribed fate, to sacrifice my happiness eight hours at a time, in exchange for a lousy certainty in a job that didn’t fulfill me.

Master your inner psychology to fight for your best life

I learned to master my inner psychology by turning fear on itself by changing my fear focus. I didn’t allow negative assumptions about my ability to own my destiny any longer. There was no limitation powerful enough to hold me back. I believed I could do it. I became fearless, like a gladiator fighting for their life. The more a gladiator plays the game and defeats his opponents, the more fights they must engage in, and more likely they are to die. That takes courage. The more I tried to transition from employee to entrepreneur, the more I risked being fired. That became my fuel to go further.

Harness the courage of a gladiator and live with no regrets

As I harnessed gladiator-worthy courage to escape my job, I bet on myself and my business dream so I could take a calculated risk. I knew if I tried to dodge my fears, the chokeholds would get stronger. But if I confronted them like a gladiator, the chokeholds would lose their power. The greatest mistake is to be afraid of making one. I lived by the mantra “a step in the wrong direction is better than staying on the spot going nowhere.”

I became fearless, adopting an aggressive, goal-directed attitude and ditching my previous defensive, submissive and negative attitude. I believed that, no matter what happened, I could handle anything. Whether the consequences were positive or negative, I would see it through because I was a gladiator now, and gladiators are ready to fight every day.

I killed the old mental story about needing my job to survive. I used to think the loss of income would mean I couldn’t support my family, that I’d end up living in my car and my kids would go without meals. I used to be scared of humiliation, risking my reputation, people pointing fingers and blaming me for endangering my family’s lifestyle. But, with a gladiator mindset, none of that stuff mattered.

You can do what you love and achieve abundance

I embraced the truth I can do anything, that I can become a freedom-preneur and have unprecedented abundance easily. I wasn’t scared, uncertain, or worried. I had a good story of who I was and who I intended to be in the future. I began to walk on fire – literally, when I did the fire-walk with Tony Robbins.

Harnessing the courage of a gladiator to control fear is essential to escaping from employee to entrepreneur. The ultimate test for the entrepreneur takes place on the mental battlefield. Like every true entrepreneur, I had the choice to live with fear and quit my dream, or man-up and push through it. I decided to go for it.
