I read an article that said how much they enjoyed what Jim Carrey said in a commencement speech address. And they added his quote, “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.”
It was one of those articles that talked about the trendy idea that you need to find your why.
And it pointed out that rich and famous isn’t a good why.
Because, the article said, it just might not be sustainable. Or even realistic.
And I’d add this. To be rich and famous isn’t actually anyone’s bottom line why. Think about it. Do you really just want a bunch of money? I mean, if that was all it took to be happy, then there wouldn’t be so many unhappy millionaires and billionaires.
My guess is, most people don’t want the money. They want what money can buy.
There’s a funny line Bernadette Peters, from the movie, The Jerk, says after she discovers that Steve Martin’s character has lost their fortune. He tells her he’s sorry they don’t have any money. And she says, “I don’t care about losing all the money…it’s losing all the stuff.”
Yeah, it’s pretty much impossible to think about getting all cozy with a pile of cash. But having a comfortable place to live, a decent car, plenty of good food to eat, and all your needs met? Now THAT’S more like it. Right?
So, my recommendation is that you learn to run your own business.
And, in my opinion, it’s the BEST way to get “all the stuff.”
Of course, when you first start out in the business owner and entrepreneur world, you might not have oodles of capital to invest in business building courses.
And that’s why I packed my RondaReady System into a book a few years ago. It’s available on Amazon. Just know, up front, it’s not cheap. In fact, it’s $115 ($100 for the Kindle version). But it’s the kind of book that can pay for itself over and over and over. At least for someone who’s willing to implement the business-building strategies my high-paying, one-on-one clients have used to ramp up to six and seven figure incomes.
But do me (and yourself) a favor. Don’t even think of spending $115 on my book if you know you won’t follow through. Because I don’t want it to cost you anything. And that’s exactly what’ll happen if you don’t follow through.
So, essentially, my book is only for the very few who will do the work to reap the rewards. The ones who aren’t just looking to get rich and famous real fast.
If that sounds good to you, awesome.
And in that case, get yourself a copy on Amazon and start reaping. If you do, I’d like you do me a favor. Keep in touch and let me know how it’s going.
And if you’re someone who learns better working with someone instead of reading a book, let’s talk about it. Book a free call with me, with that handy calendar below. And give me a chance to see where you wanna go in life. I’d love to help YOU if I can. Let’s talk soon.
