If You Get It, Line Up Behind Me

If You Get It, Line Up Behind Me

These pathetic posts on Facebook about hoping for an upgrade, the stress about having purchased a business class ticket, or the mocking of first class as if it’s nothing to really desire—these are people with limited vistas and small-time thinking, poverty mentality at its worst. It’s not just that they won’t spend the money to be more comfortable, it’s that they have to go public to get support from others with the same condition.

The first class line is over here. It may get to the destination at the same time as coach, but it gets there in a different mindset and leads you, ultimately, to a far different destination: a thriving life.

    Two words… “Amen brother!”

    I absolutely agree. The vast majority of people think in terms of survival, and to justify their limited results in life, they get defensive when they hear of others living in abundance. I learned at a young age that we become the average of the five people we spend the most time with (that’s probably why I have very few friends). I started my consulting practice 3 years ago (I’m 29 now) and even before I found my business, I would drive through neighborhoods here in Orlando where the homes were in the 5+ Million range, and see luxury cars, and quite frankly, happy people. Never did I feel envy, but I thought how amazing and what a wonderful life this will be when I am at this level. About once per month, I stop at the executive airport just to look at the private planes lined up, and sometimes if I’m lucky, there’s the smell of jet fuel in the air when I roll the windows down. I go to Boca Raton, Palm beach, etc. on a regular basis, and I’ll stop on worth avenue to try on watches (patek philippe, audemar piguet, etc.), and get into the feeling space of this life. I surround myself with winners, and the people you mentioned on social media (I’m not on social media – big waste of time) surround themselves with mediocre, and limited thinking individuals. Cheers Dr. Weiss, and look forward to meeting you in the future.

    “There are winners and whiners.”

    And never the twain shall meet…
