In this episode I answer another question from a listener. He asked a great question, because it is a question I know many of you have as well.

When is it too late to make changes in our life? The short answer is never.

The reason we wonder is because we believe that life is it meant to be lived in a certain way.

What I mean is that when we hit certain ages in our lives, we’re expected to be at a certain point. Our 20’s are for climbing our way up the ladder in our career and maybe get married. Our 30’s are for starting a family and continuing to work. That goes on for the next two decades. When we are in our 60’s, then we count down to when we retire.

So once we hit a certain age, it’s too late to go back. It’s too late to try something new.

This is not the case at all.

If you have felt the same way, then my answer in today’s episode will help you.

I’m trying something new on the podcast. Answering questions from you!

I answer a lot of questions by email, but why not get questions and put them on the podcast?

If you’re struggling with something, or want to know something about me or my business, feel free to ask! I’m very transparent so I’ll do my best to answer it.

I know questions that you have are questions that a lot of other people have as well.

There’s a free service where you record your question. You can do that right here with Speakpipe.

Leave a voicemail of 1 minute or less. If it’s a bit over, then that’s fine. Tell me your name, where you’re from, and what you’re struggling with. I’ll do my best to answer all the questions on the podcast. Some questions might overlap so if I don’t answer yours, it’s likely cause someone else asked and I’ve answered it.

Thank you William for being the first to ask a question!

My biggest enemy in my 20’s was trying to find my passion. I didn’t know it growing up. I didn’t know it in college so I chose a major that sounded fun and not that practical. After college, I began working in the family restaurant business just to have something to do and make money. Once I figured out my true passion, I’d pursue that.

Years passed and it still didn’t come to me. I read books to learn how others found theirs. I did tests from books to find what I was passionate about. I came up with a bunch of interests but I wasn’t sure if I was truly passionate about any.

After spending my adult life coming up with nothing, I needed another strategy.

I stopped searching for my passion and just followed what I talk about in this podcast episode.

I was looking through the episodes that I’ve done of the podcast and saw the title was from episode 18: One year after I quit my job and went all in. That was recorded in June 2014.

I hadn’t realized the two year anniversary was this month.

That was a major turning point in my life. I had a big decision to make. Do I continue working at my horrible job, just to have financial security and working in my free time to build  up enough online income? Or do I quit to be free and take a leap of faith?

I decided for my own sanity it was time to quit.

I didn’t dwell on whether it was the right decision. I didn’t worry about what if I couldn’t do it. t just focused on how I was going to make money.

Since that turning point in my life, I’ve had many ups but also some downs. That’s the life of an entrepreneur. Many people couldn’t handle it and therefore would rather settle for the comfort of a steady paycheck. Despite being on a roller coaster ride, I wouldn’t change a thing. I make more money now and I’m happier.

In this episode, I talk about the lessons I’ve learned these past two years to help you if you wanted to be your own boss or even help you achieve your dreams.

Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses. – George Washington Carver

What excuses do you constantly tell yourself? I’m willing to bet some of them are mentioned in this podcast episode.

When you have an excuse, what you are doing is immediately telling your brain to stop being unrealistic and go back to being realistic without even trying.

The excuses you tell yourself have so much power over you, but when you get a closer look at the excuses, you realize they’re not that powerfull. They just act to scare you from getting out of your comfort zone and succeed the majority of the time.

It’s time to stop letting excuses prevent you from living your dreams.

He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.  – Benjamin Franklin

After listening to today’s episode, I want you to stop saying these six excuses because they’re only made to hold you back.

Isn’t it a good thing to tell people what our big hairy goals are? By telling them won’t they help keep us accountable?

Be careful about doing that.

There will be a lot of people, including family and close friends, who won’t agree with what you’re doing. It’s not like you’re breaking the law, but it’s almost gets the same response. They won’t understand why you would want to quit a nice and stable job. They won’t understand why you’re doing whatever it is you dream about doing.

They try to dissuade you and they believe they’re doing it out of love. If enough people tell you the same thing, it could cause you to believe they are right.

In this episode, I talk about why it’s so important to keep your goals and dreams to yourself.

Hope you enjoy!
