The happy and efficient people in this world are those who accept trouble as a normal detail of human life and resolve to capitalize on it when it comes along. – H. Bertram Lewis.

This is a great quote…

When most people hear the word “trouble”, they think of something bad.

Even the dictionary says trouble is

You’ve heard me mention several times that “Life Is Easy”.

However, there will come times that things don’t seem quite as easy as you would like them to be. You may call them,

The Luckiest Day?

A quick observation:

I get about 150 legitimate emails per day…so admittedly, it takes me several days to reply to some emails…

Well, today I read an email I got 2 weeks ago from someone who obviously doesn’t know me very well.

Here’s the email

Hey Antonio,

Don’t forget to play the lottery today 07/07/07… it’s the luckiest day of the millennium!

There are 2 things that are totally incongruent:

1) I don’t play the lottery
2) I don’t believe in luck

Geez

Just a side observation… lottery sales were up 255% on that day. So that means for every 2 people that normally would have played the lottery, 5 people played. So actually, your odds were lower than any other day. How’s that for irony.

A Do-Do Society

We live in a “do-do” society (no pun intended)

We are always doing things versus ‘being’. Just to give you an example, go tell your buddy that you’re about to

Acting Vs Being

Unfortunately, I have realized that is often more true than it should be.

Many of us wake up every day and go out into the world merely playing a role, not living our real lives.

It occurred to me that there were several areas in my life that I wasn’t taking responsibility for. It became very clear to me that though I’m an adult, I wasn’t ‘acting’ like one.

I emphasize on the word acting because to a large degree, that’s all we’re doing anyway.

Acting.

Acting like we can’t get a job because we aren’t smart enough, have enough experience, have the right complexion or the right gender.

We’re acting like we can’t find the person we want in our lives because we aren’t tall enough, we aren’t pretty enough, we aren’t thin enough, or have enough money.

We’re all acting.

We’re acting instead of ‘being’

We have practically an unlimited ability to accomplish anything in the world but we ACT like we don’t.

We are limiting ourselves to a small, scripted world that has boundaries we can’t get past.

Get rid of the script. Get rid of the character you are playing.

Be yourself!

Take responsibility for yourself. Quit making excuses of things you can’t do, can’t have, or aren’t good enough for. Get out and do them, have them, and earn them!

It is time to take back your reality!

This is your life and your experience, not some pre-written script.

You can have anything you want, do anything you want, and are good enough to receive the rewards life has to offer as long as you believe in yourself and work towards those goals.

Practical Application

It’s time to look at your ‘acting portfolio’.

What goals have you written off because you ‘acted’ like you could not reach them?

What opportunities have you passed on because you ’acted’ like you didn’t deserve them?

It’s time to get rid of the actor, remove those limitations you have put on your life and reprogram yourself for reality!

It is only when you grab on to your life, take responsibility for it, and believe in it, that you will be able to enjoy the rewards the Universe has to offer.

I am one of the world’s best marketers.

There are about 2,000 people in the world who are better at marketing than me. So comparatively speaking, with over 6 billion other people in the world, I’m better at marketing than 99.997% of the entire world’s population.

And I’m proud of that.

I remember a saying I heard while in Texas…
