Crucify your Pride
Reading time: 2 – 4 minutes
In order to make it you’ll have to stay focused on your goals. Pride is by far the worst emotion or vice to have as it’s a Money Killer. You wanting to show that you are better, smarter, first in line, first to say it that way and wanting your just due will sabotage your hustle. You allowing others to affect your angle so much because of your pride is a weakness. You not getting over loses because of your pride is paralyzing. In fact you believing you are entitled to something and expecting it just because, is a deathblow.
I had to make this post a little bit out of hand in analogies because I wanted to stress it’s importance. I know sometimes you think I tell you to act like a robot when it comes to money but emotions will kill you. You have to learn to be indifferent to just about everything that comes with this game. Indifference means neither up nor down, neither mad nor happy, neither vengeful nor passive. When I say I’m just passing through it’s because I have learned to be indifferent about situations where I know I will not have to deal with these people anymore. When I remain calm in business it’s because I know things can turn around in a second and me panicking will just make me mess up. When I deflect praise it’s because I know anyone can read what I read and do what I do if they wanted to.
Now to some it may seen like I don’t care about anything. Well truth be told I don’t care about anything that will take me off my mission. Success attracts and entices your pride to start believing your own hype. Your pride will make business decisions for you instead of just getting the money and moving on. Your pride will make you say Sucker phrases like you deserve it because you worked for it, when you deserve nothing in this world. Your pride will make you think you are GOD and if not GOD’s gift to the world.
It takes discipline to create empires. Creating the empire is such a undertaking that you stopping to pat yourself on the back or admire what you built just slows down the process. We have to keep moving and the best way to stay in motion is not to allow anything to get a rise, misdirect or influence your mind from getting things done. Crucifying your pride is the biggest step you can take on the road to building the life you want.
