Have you been living your life as a sole proprietorship?
Have you been so focused on your own goals that you forget that other people have goals too? Do you expect help from others, but never think about how you can help them?
The world is not just there to serve you. You are there to serve the world. Life is not a sole proprietorship. It’s a partnership.
In this video, filmed at the Titanium Mastermind in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Lisa Grossman talks about the day she learned this lesson.
LIFE IS A PARTNERSHIP
When Lisa Grossman was nearing the end of her 12-month prison sentence and about to re-enter society, she went to a meeting with the other inmates that planted some scary thoughts in her mind.
At the start of that day, she was feeling happy. At the end of that day, she was a basket case.
She was in her room, freaking out that her husband would leave her, her children would stop talking to her, she would struggle to ever get another job and she would become homeless.
The prison chaplain gave her some tough love. She explained to Lisa that she had been living her life like a sole proprietorship, when that’s not how life works.
Really, life is a partnership and you are the junior partner. It’s really not all about you.
PEOPLE WILL GIVE YOU A SECOND CHANCE
Don’t be embarrassed about your past failures or faults. Keep a smile on your face and be honest about where you’ve been, but do your job and contribute what you can. Your senior partner in life will do the rest.
That’s what Lisa Grossman did after she was released. She got involved with network marketing and met many incredible people. Whatever she could contribute, she offered to do it.
Successful people love being able to give people a second chance. They won’t judge you on your past.
You can be sent to prison, or you can be dealt all kinds of monumental blows in life and business, but you will always have your freedom to choose how to respond.
