I’d fucked up.
But I wouldn’t admit it.
I burried my head in the sand and pretended everything was ok.
I was ignoring phone calls from my debtors. The interest was racking up. I was totally in denial of how bad things had gotten.
So what happened?
Im saying all of this is past tense.
This is where I’m currently at!
The present day.
After around 18 months of wallowing in self pity. Blaming just about everybody else besides myself as to why I lost the business and all of the material, superficial bullshit that I had in my life.
I’ve turned a full 360.
Broke. Poor. Skint.
But more determined than ever before!
I’ve finally taken full responsibility, come to terms with the fact that I was a complete fuckwit and made a few simple numerical errors when handling large cashflows.
And besides watching my family suffer the consequences of my mistakes, having large debts looming over me, and the fact that I’ve lost my mates investment in the business (which is the thing eating me up the most, besides watching my family suffer)…
Weirdly I’m ok with it.
Because I’m on a mission.
Back to square one and feeling fresh to start again. Warts (debts) and all…..
What I realised is that, although yes, I was a bit of an idiot….
…To generate almost $20k in sales from scratch in just one month is actually a strong effort.
I should be proud of that.
And I am.
And then to scale a business to $250,000 in the first year is also a good fucking effort.
(yea yea… ego massage, I know. I need it right now, ok!! You’ve just read how dumb I was, lets turn this story around!)
Which brings me to this blog.
My ‘WHY’ for The ManSet World.
It takes a certain ManSet (Mindset, exclusively for Men) to generate the level of success that I reached before it came crashing down. And I acclaim this success to my time spent immersing myself in self development and mindset mastery.
Something I’m still extremely passionate about. More now than ever before!
So I’m going to be using this blog as a platform to inspire any Fellas out there who know that there is more to life.
Who know that the possibilities are literally endless.
I want to enlighten you to these possibilities and to motivate you to achieve success.
I want to inspire as many Men who are in the same mindset hole that I’ve recently been in, and crawled out of, and get them away from the notion of scarcity, fear and disbelief.
I don’t want you to settle for less than you deserve, and to give up on your dreams.
I wont let that happen for you!
I’m going to be proof that you can drastically change your situation for the better in a very short time frame.
So instead of some dude who claims to have all the answers but has never actually been in the trenches and done it for real, I’m going to admit that I don't have all the answers, but I'm going to hustle my ass off and get the life back that I was happily living in 2016.
