March 23,1998 –

I was awakened by the sound of chains rattling
outside my window…

no it wasn’t Casper the friendly ghost…

it was Russ the Repo Man!

He was hoisting my 3-year-old Nissan Sentra onto
the flat bed and was about to pull off.

I threw on some pants and ran outside to try to
catch him.

He was gone.

I grabbed the keys to my truck, jumped in and raced down the street to catch him.

It was 3am.There wasn’t any traffic

I was flying down the street like a crazy man.

I caught up with him at a red light.

I rolled the window down and blew the horn to get his attention.

He ignored me.

I pulled my truck over in front of him.

He got out of the truck and started yelling at me.

I told him that was my car on the back of his truck and he cut me off to tell me:

“Man, I’m just doin’ my job, if you’ve got a problem with it, you should have paid your f*ing car note. ”

I stayed calm.

I didn’t yell or curse back because…he was right.

I told him that I wasn’t trying to be hostile towards him, I had some important things in the car I needed to get.

Because I was so calm and cordial, he allowed me.

As I was getting my stuff, he told me about some of his repo stories….geez.

I know why they carry guns now.

After gathering my things, I shook the guys hand and drove home.

When I got there,

I cried.

It wasn’t just about the car… it was because I had it TAKEN from me because I COULDN’T pay anymore.

I felt helpless.

But that was just the beginning. It was the first in a series of unfortunate events that occurred over the next few months.

The Good news…I was able to turn things around -very quickly and in a big way.

Just under 6 months later, I was bringing in $250,000 per year in my computer networking business.

Not by luck…but by changing my focus.

I focused on the good in my life and not the bad. I simply used the 5 “money-making” habits used by the world’s richest people.
