Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 06/28/2021

Alan Weiss's Monday Morning Memo

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 06/28/2021

 

On Saturday we attended a 60th birthday party for a friend. When he was in his early 20s he borrowed money, bought concrete trucks, and is now a wealthy man. The event was on his estate, around a pool, with 80 people. His partner has her own hairstyling business, our entire family are her customers, and she’s worked hard to create her success. She cooked for all 80 people.

We shared a cocktail table with a woman and her husband. She had created a high-end clothing store. At 70+, after decades of hard work, she closed the successful business during the pandemic and “retired.” She looks incredible and is a bundle of energy.

By any standards, I’m a “self-made” man. I tell people who sometimes comment on my lifestyle, “This is not my daddy’s money.” I took a lot of risks, my wife supported me wonderfully and worked even harder raising our kids, and I moved from working hard to working smart.

All of us believe that we have to help those who haven’t been as fortunate, for whatever reasons, through taxes and philanthropy. These are all generous people.

This is how I believe the country should work, the freedom it needs to provide. I hope to God it continues to do so. Our politicians can’t even agree on a non-partisan infrastructure plan. Rodney King, with a history of criminal activity, brutalized horribly by the police, said, “Why can’t we all just get along?” Today, I’d vote for him.

 

He was a self-made man who owed his lack of success to nobody. —Joseph Heller

Being self-made is a state of mind, and once you put that mentality to work, your success will come. —Dave East

Being self-made means putting yourself in position to help others put themselves in position to be successful. —A Boogie with da Hoodie (Julius Dubose)

Post Mid-Life Crisis: Who do you want to be (not “what do you want to be doing)? Join me in a Zoom workshop in a lively exchange about what happens “after success” and how “meaning” might be changing for us. Develop a personal vision, a “fulfillment statement” (not a “bucket list”), and hear from your colleagues about how they’re avoiding the arbitrary expectations of others. https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/post-mid-life-crisis/
