Entrepreneurs and Addiction

In my 20+ years as an entrepreneur, I’ve seen porn, alcohol, drugs, infidelity, and overeating, destroy men and their empires.

Here’s the facts about driven men who become entrepreneurs…

  • We have addictive personalities (that’s what drives us)
  • When we’re stressed or overwhelmed we don’t talk about it
  • We tend to suffer in silence
  • If we don’t check ourselves we end up medicating with addictions

I’ve seen one person lose his $60 million fortune because of vices.

This doesn’t only affect multi-millionaires.

These vices are also affecting the entrepreneurs who slide in my DMs asking for help because they can’t seem to gain any ”traction.”

They point the finger at everything else for their failures but…

They never point at themselves.

They don’t point it at the vices sabotaging their success.

Some of these vices are out in the open. And some are hidden as skeletons in the closet.

Conquering these vices and addictions is simple:

  1. Be more disciplined.
  2. Have better habits and routines
  3. Have core values that lead your life
  4. Be a better leader of self and others
  5. Be willing to ask for help

These 5 things cost you nothing.

They’re within your control.

The same way how your attitude, and the time you wake up is within your control.

Use these 5 vice destroying tips to level up in your business, marriage, fitness and in life!

How to Overcome Anxiety

All I could think about was my family.

Who was going to take care of them if I died?

My life was flashing before my eyes…

My hands were balled up into a fist.

My heart was pounding.

I couldn’t catch my breath.

Sweat was dripping down my face.

I was convinced that I was having a heart attack.

Holy F! I’m having a heart attack!

I had so much more to do but now I was out of time.

Then all of a sudden, as fast as it came on, it was gone.

I Dodged a bullet! Turns out it was an anxiety attack… the first of many more to come.

This anxiety attack was the most crippling experience I’ve ever had.

I had no control over my body…

…and I thought I was going to die.

I share this with you because having anxiety means one of two things:

  1. You’re not dealing with an issue that you should be dealing with.
  2. You’re worried about something that might happen down the road which may or may not turn out bad.

When I had my anxiety attack, both of these were the cause.

And I could have easily avoided it by taking action.

You see, the best way to fix anxiety is with action.

ACTION ALLEVIATES ANXIETY!

Is something causing you to have anxiety?

Lean into it by asking yourself “what am I avoiding?” And take action like a motherf*ker and do something about it.

Work over worry!

Action over inaction!

Movement over meditation!

Preparation over praying!

Remember this brutally honest fact…

Action is the cure-all for your problems.

Is It Okay To Throw In The Towel?

Let me be real with you…

Almost in 2010, I was in a really bad situation… $640K in debt, stressed out AF and worried that the economic crash (of 2008) was going to put me under financially and physically.

I was scared.

I didn’t know how I was going to keep running my newly launched franchise Fit Body Boot Camp or pay my mortgage for that matter.

The economy was in the tank.

Businesses were dying off left and right – just like now.

Every day that past, it seemed like it wouldn’t get any better anytime soon.

It was dark times man.

Very similar to what we’re going through now, minus the pandemic.

Right now, you might feel like that it’s time to throw in the towel. Our way of living has almost gone back to caveman times.

The reason why cavemen lived in caves was that everything outside was dangerous and could kill them.

We’re just a modern version of it.

So if you were thinking of waving the white flag of surrender, I understand.

And if throwing in the towel is the right move for you, then I support you.

But is it the right move for you and your family?

Or will you be making a permanent decision while experiencing temporary feelings?

Look, some people are not cut out for certain things.

Like I know for a fact that I’m not cut out to be a doctor.

It’s very academic… and if you know anything about me, I’m not cut out for school or traditional education.

Now let’s change gears…

If you’re saying “fuck that” to giving up.

If you’re willing to stay in the fight.

If you know that this is just a phase of life and that this isn’t the end, then listen up!

Keep pushing.

Keep grinding.

Keep showing up.

This is your time to shine.

Don’t settle for a mediocre life.

Keep doing what you’re doing.

Everything is going to work out.

When this all blows over, and you look back at this ten years later, you can laugh at all this craziness…

…and be grateful for this gift of adversity that helped us become even more resilient and successful moving forward.

And if you’re a weirdo like me who likes to get even faster personal and professional development in life then you might want to consider applying for The Modern Day Knight Project.

The UGLY truth

A couple weeks ago we ran and secured class 005 of The Project

I’m really proud of the men went through the 75 hour experience and evolved into better leaders, fathers, husbands and entrepreneurs. 

During the graduation dinner one of the men asked me what it’s really like being an entrepreneur for over 20 years. 

Truth be told, he caught me off guard…

…and the words that rolled out of my mouth were: “it ain’t all sexy”

Here’s what you need to know about being an entrepreneur I told him…

Most people think that being an entrepreneur is about constant success and freedom. 

They envision…

– The $10K or $100,000 days in income.

– 7, 8, and 9 figure bank accounts.

– The freedom to do whatever you want, anywhere you want, for as long as you want.

So I told him the truth of what it’s really like… 

Look, over time a very small group of people will make it. 

They’ll create wealth, build a competent team, have strong systems and win their freedom. 

But most won’t. 

Here’s why.

Most people are more interested in acting like an entrepreneur…

So at the first sign of money these people are more obsessed with:

Looking successful…

Flexing in front of their rented sports cars…

–  Snapping pics in their Air BNB Mansions…

Posting about how they’re flying in their timeshare private jets…

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with that if you really got it and it’s not rented by the hour, mile or day.

But to become REALLY successful as an entrepreneur you’ve got to put in the REAL work that only a few are willing to put in.

You gotta show up every day – even on the days you just don’t feel like it. 

And then embrace the “unsexy” side of the game.

Things like:

– Being a leader and having to make the unpopular decisions.

Guess what? No one wants to do that, but it’s gotta get done.

– Obsessing over marketing, sales and customer retention more than anyone else in your organization.

– Staying disciplined and challenging yourself to grow every day, in every category of life so that you can lead your company to even higher levels of success. 

– Being more than willing to look like a “loser” who works around the clock, while your friends are living it up on weekends. 

This last one is the most important because this is the trap I see most entrepreneurs fall into when they first start cranking out some “new money”.

The most dangerous thing of all for an entrepreneur is becoming  “new money” rich. 

(“new money” rich is money that can afford you payments on a lambo, rent on a nice crib and just enough sizzle and bling to flash on IG… but it’s not real lasting WEALTH, it’s just “new money”  that usually gets wasted on stupid things.)

They fall into the trap of buying things to impress people they don’t like.

First off, don’t be a people pleaser. 

We’ve talked about that before. 

People pleasing doesn’t look good on anyone.

The way you really impress people is by doing the work and building a reputation as a hard working, generous and humble SOB.

That’s wealth VS new money rich.

P.S. If you want to scale up your income from 6 to 7-figures, but don’t have the $50K to work with me in my 12 month private coaching program then you should come to my one day Mentorship Mastermind next month that’s only a few hundred bucks.

https://bedroskeuilian.com/workshop

I’ve coached over 1,800 entrepreneurs helping all of them add multiple six figures to their bottom line. 

And I’ve helped 37 of them make the leap into multiple 7 and 8 figures. I’d like to help you, too. That’s why I’m having this one day Mentorship Mastermind, so that I can reach and impact more entrepreneurs.
