➤You graduate Uni £35k in debt, people clap and cheer for you.
➤You get married and spend between £5k-£50k for ONE day, people will clap and cheer for you.
➤You take a £200k+ loan from the bank to buy your first house, people will clap and cheer for you.
➤You take a £30k+ loan for a car (a depreciating asset) with an interest rate, people will clap and cheer for you.
That’s roughly £365,000 total spent debt throughout the years and somehow they are feeling good about it because people are congratulating them for it.
How many have you done?
Now, go and tell those same people you spent a few hundred pounds to start your own business……
“Are you sure?”
“What if it doesn’t work?”
“Can you get your money back?”
“What if people laugh at you?”
“I know a place that’s hiring.”
“It’s going to be hard to get people to support you.”
Some of these same people won’t even share or like your post. They won’t help you promote your business. They would rather spend their money with somebody else. They will bring you everything negative about what it is that you’re doing.
Picture a bucket full of crabs with no lid. The moment a crab tries to get out, the other crabs will literally rip its legs off.
For the rest of this year, pay attention to whom you’re surrounding yourself with and who’s speaking into your life.
