I’m coming down off my first epic trip with a tribe of “Healthy Wealthy Men who Choose to Lead Epic Lives”. This is the tag line for a group of guys who constantly challenge themselves to “Grab Life Big”. The name of this group is GoBundance. In order to be a full member of the tribe you’ll need to have a minimum of 1 Million Net worth. If you’re currently not at that level that’s ok, because there’s a great group that developing and supporting folks on their journey to their first Million Net Worth. As of this writing 10 Millionaires have been created through this program.
M1 is the group that was formed when people started learning about GoBundance and weren’t at that level yet but still had an interest in being around the tribe. Since joining the M1 I’ve dramatically shifted my consciousness and how I think about things. My values are shifting too. It’s been an interesting journey because I am learning to look at life as a “Whole Life Millionaire.” Someone who values their Health and their “Wealth” (not just money) but Adventures, Contribution and Relationships as much as the money that’s created from being disciplined and focused.
So often in life we see on the outside “flashy” and think to ourselves, at least for me, that this person has it “made” and they must know something or have a leg up on me. It’s been quite the experience learning to let go of that limiting belief. A big part of the M1 journey has been on this inner game of wealth and really learning to create my own path. It’s been great connecting with others who have achieved successes in their life and are creating their path to wealth.
I believe that the great truth of being the average of the 5 people you spend the most of your time with absolutely is true. Getting around folks that uplift you and support the authentic version of yourself to help grow and develop the necessary parts to going out in the world and seeing the opportunity that exists.
A big part of the millionaire life is seeing that opportunity and learning how to serve or give of yourself to that need. During the epic trip to Whistler I met and hung out with Chris Lochhead, who’s the creator of the upcoming Podcast Legends and Losers. He’s dedicating time to elevating the truth behind the success. Helping dispel this myth of overnight success, and the flashy and tidy picture we’ve created in our minds that it’s “Easy” or that it comes quickly. So many sales pages have started “Selling” this concept that you can have it all in 90 days or less, and that just learn this facebook ninja trick or spend a few hours a day for 6 months and you’ll be able to create passive income.
These myths sidetrack us for the main objective which is to stay focused on our 20% until mastery is achieved. Whatever life you’ve chosen, one thing is true, play all out. Until it’s the right time to quit and do something out, it’s a choice you’ve made and it’s all you have. KEEP at it. Invest in yourself by getting around new people who may help you think different and learn new skills, but until you make the shift DIG in and Play all out. I’m speaking from experience here. I’ve got the shiny object syndrome and have bought into numerous courses and ideas that sidetrack me from my main purpose which is to connect deeply with folks who are looking for help and advice as they desire to invest in real estate and lay the groundwork for a solid financial future.
My journey into this has been filled with ups and downs and more of an experience filled life than one building a solid foundation for the future, but nonetheless I’m responsible for my choices and will continue to be disciplined and keep working to learn how to add greater and greater value and touch others through my BEING the man I want to be only then will I be able to find fulfillment in the things I do or Have.
Learning how to BE grateful for who I am today, and being present with that is my 2017 goal and ambition. Learning how to BE the man who has millions, instead of thinking that once I have a million dollars I can finally be that person whoever he is to my limited sense of self…..
