As a kid, Benjamin believed he could be and become anything. But his self-confidence was shattered into pieces when he was 12. He felt completely neglected by his own mom, as she focused on seeing her daughter becoming the prom queen: he desperately needed her love, but she couldn’t be there for him! That’s when Benjamin decided he will never be hurt again! These circumstances put him on a track where he always succeeded professionally, but he closed himself emotionally and turned himself to gambling and drugs, blaming everybody else for his situation.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:
- Courage means eliminating your preconceived ideas. Not every belief you hold is true, not even close.
- You can have everything you want, but you need to own your circumstances and your own mistakes.
- We all have untalked conversations within us and related to our family history.
- Find the best method to share these conversations with your family and start your relationships over.
- Force yourself to be in positions you want to be, but you still fear.
- Stop feeling awkward and inadequate: learn this lesson from kids.
- Turn nervousness into excitement!
- We are scared by the things that we desire to have!
- Surround yourself with the people or the tools that can help you achieve the things you desire.
- Instead of envying others, ask them to help you replicate their success.
- Write down your dreams: use pen and paper. There is something magic about it!
- Ask yourself WHY you need to be and do what you want!
- Get around people that are ready to help you achieve those dreams and hold you accountable (coaches, mastermind groups).
