TPM 038 : Your Life is in Your Hands with Fred Graves
A Powerful Mindset: Understanding that you can always be better and can always be growing. – Fred Graves
Welcome back, welcome back!
This week we get to hear from Fred Graves. He is an entrepreneur at heart, and worked to earn his first million dollars by the age of 24 years old.
One of the things that stuck out to me with him was how he emphasizes that everyone is equal when it comes to success. The only thing that separates us from anyone else are the decisions that we make on a daily basis.
I’ve said before that at The Powerful Mind, the word power doesn’t mean you are stronger than someone else, have more influence or money than someone else, or that you’re in charge of a lot of people. Here, power means that we have the ability to act. In any situation, we always have the ability to act.
No matter how small, we can take some sort of action each day. In the morning, that could mean getting out of bed. It could mean choosing to add vegetables to your meal. It could mean going for a run instead of (or before) binge watching a show. The decisions and actions that we are able to make are our power.
Fred’s story is an incredible one. Not to mention making one million dollars by age 24, but that he also suffered a loss of everything. It’s hard to imagine having so much, and then losing it all. It would be easy to choose to stay down, get a job, and just stay safe.
However, the energy that it would take make that decision, you could make another one. You could decide to try again. To get back up, and rebuild.
Since this interview, he’s built his business up to the point where he’s now netting over 7-figures.
It reminds me of that saying, a child doesn’t fall down a few times and then think “You know, this walking thing? It’s just not for me.” they get up again, and again, and again until they’re able to walk on their own.
