I was not born with money in my pocket, a creative mind, or a healthy physique. I worked for it. Some people are born with all the resources they need. Which, in of itself, is a huge advantage. But you know what else is a huge advantage? Being born with nothing and having to get it all.
Now, I am not saying this to make you feel better for your lack of resources. I am going to explain why starting with nothing can be the greatest advantage.
“You will learn discipline…”
Your gift is a double-edged sword, and it comes in the form of mindset. Not being handed thousands of dollars, to start your business, means you have to earn it. As you go through this process, you will learn many skills. Firstly, you will learn money and asset management. Remember to “keep more than you spend” and “always pay yourself first.” You will learn discipline and sacrifice by giving up unnecessary spending and building new habits. With consistency and determination, your mindset will adapt to this new lifestyle.
“The more you can accomplish…”
These new challenges will demand more from you, and you will find the importance of self-care. The more you take care of yourself, the better you perform, and the more you can accomplish. This process prepares you for your future ventures. Whether it be business, sports, or life in general; this process will mentally and physically prepare you.
“Here is your advantage…”
Once you open your own business or jump into the boxing ring, it is game on! You will be competing with people from all over the world. Each with their training, experiences, and skills; willing to compete. Here is your advantage. You see, the person who was born with all they ever needed, never had to fight to get it. Now, because you had to fight for those resources, you are prepared. They never had to make every dollar count to cover all the expenses or wake up at 4 A.M. to get everything accomplished in the day. You started from nothing, had it all to gain, and nothing to lose. You operate from dogged determination, not fear. Discipline has molded you; life has taught you, and because of this you will dominate!
