Would you eat a bowl of live crickets for $10,000?
Would you eat a bowl of live crickets for $10,000? – is a stupid but crucial question, because how you answer it will help determine the level of success you have in your life right now.
If you answered YES, it is because you have not yet unleashed your inner entrepreneur. You are likely not living your passion, lack confidence in your future direction, and have a scarcity mindset as opposed to one of abundance. As a result, you’re limited when it comes to creating the income, lifestyle, and freedom you want. And eating the bowl of crickets for $10K is something you need to do out of desperation. Especially in the crazy times of the COVID-19 crisis.
So where are you in your life right now? Would you eat the bowl of crickets for $10K?
Or have you unleashed your inner entrepreneur and created a financial fortress around you and your family that can’t be broken… and therefore you don’t need to eat the crickets for money to survive.
“You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” – Woodrow Wilson, statesman, lawyer, academic and former President of the USA
The life of someone that will not eat the bowl crickets
If you don’t need to eat the bowl of live crickets for $10K… you are one of the lucky ones. You can enjoy this time off with family worry and stress free. You likely have more than enough money to feed the family, support the fine local restaurants take-out services, can easily pay the bills, and even invest in the stock market when it hits its low. You are likely using this time off in isolation keeping fit, and feeding your soul with online books, workshops and training’s. Doing the things that will prepare you and your family even more to take advantage of the opportunities that arise when things get back to normal.
“The tragedy of life is not in the fact of death, but what dies inside of us when we live.” – Norman Cousins, political journalist, author, professor, and world peace advocate
The life of someone that will eat the bowl of crickets
If you need to eat the bowl of live crickets for $10K… it is likely that you are not living your passion, and have not fully explored the world of entrepreneurship, to be the boss and live a life of freedom. That’s because most people do what society says they should do, that is go to school, get a job and do what you’re told. People are trained to work for someone else, they are conditioned to be employees and not entrepreneurs, to work for themselves. Because of this brainwashing, most people have not even considered looking into their future and confidently carving out their correct path to passion and financial freedom. So they stay frustrated with their current situation, and not in control of their financial future.
“You have to find it… no one else can find it for you.” – Bjorn Borg, pro tennis player
A few years ago, I would have eaten the crickets… but not anymore!
A few years ago, I would have eaten that bowl of live crickets for $10K. Actually, I would have eaten them for much less money. I was in the same frustrated stage of my life where time was flying by, I was unhappy and didn’t know what to do to get more passion and freedom. Also I was not entrepreneurial and not in control of my financial future. I felt vulnerable… I was sick and tired of waking up and feeling worried for the day – wondering if I would have a job, and if I would always be able to support my family.
I was stressed, it felt tight in my chest, and I was scared that the rest of my life was going to be under the context of trading time for money, doing something I didn’t like, and under someone else’s control and mercy
I hit the threshold… I couldn’t take it anymore. I was done helping someone else achieve goals at the expense of my own. I started unleashing my inner entrepreneur, and began a journey of developing new skills to build a side hustle of my dreams in the digital economy.
“I believe anything is possible. I see opportunity when others see impossibility. I take risks. I’m focused. I hustle. I know that nothing is unrealistic. I feel overwhelming love. I embrace my childlike wonder & curiosity. I take flying leaps into the unknown. I contribute to something bigger than myself. I create. I learn. I grow. I do. I believe it’s never too late to start living a dream. I am an Entrepreneur.” – Unknown
The four desires that fueled my transition
My transformation to take charge of my financial destiny and start becoming more entrepreneurial, was fueled by 4 strong desires.
- First, I desired to live my passion so I didn’t need to take vacations from my life.
- Second, I desired to leave a legacy and make a difference, truly helping people in need- I wanted to have a real impact on the world.
- Third, I desired more financial abundance to enjoy the exceptional things in life and travel the world. I wanted the freedom to do what I want, when I want, where I want, with whom I want, and as much as I want.
- Lastly, I desired more time and geographic freedom. I didn’t want to be tied down anymore, living in one location all the time. I wanted to explore the world, grab my laptop and my bags, and jump on a plane to anywhere while working in my passion for a substantial income.
“There is a powerful driving force inside every human being, that once unleashed can make any vision or desire a reality.” – Anthony Robbins, Personal Mastery teacher
