THE GOOD LIFE

I’m here in my GARAGE! Just bought this NEW LAMBORGHINI here. It’s fun to drive up here in the HOLLYWOOD HILLS. But you know what I like a LOT MORE than materialistic things? KNOWLEDGE. In fact, I’m a LOT more proud of these SEVEN NEW BOOKSHELVES I had to get installed to hold TWO THOUSAND NEW BOOKS that I bought. It’s like the BILLIONAIRE Warren Buffet says: The more you LEARN, the more you EARN. Now, maybe you’ve seen my TEDX talk in which I talk about how I read A BOOK A DAY? You know, I read a book a day not to show off, it’s again about the KNOWLEDGE. In fact, the REAL REASON I keep this LAMBORGHINI here is that it’s a REMINDER. A REMINDER that dreams are still POSSIBLE.

It wasn’t that long ago that I was in a little town across the country sleeping on a COUCH in a MOBILE HOME with only FORTY-SEVEN DOLLARS in my bank account. I didn’t have a COLLEGE DEGREE. I had no OPPORTUNITIES. But you know what? Something happened that changed my LIFE. One day my STEPFATHER came out of the bedroom and ORDERED me to get a JOB. That ASSHOLE hadn’t worked A SINGLE DAY since he supposedly lost ONE TESTICLE in a JOB ACCIDENT. Most days he is THREE SHEETS TO THE WIND by NINE. And he is NOT my father. So if a guy like THAT is telling me to go down to the UPS STORE and get a DELIVERY MAN POSITION you bet your ASS I’m going to HEAR THAT because I don’t want to end up like that HALF-NUT. And you know not six months later I was delivering a PACKAGE to a condo in MALIBU when the man who owned that VERITABLE PALACE told me that I could make more money at HOME than by WORKING A JOB if I just followed the THREE EASY STEPS he would teach me. And just like THAT I’d found me a MENTOR. And a partner of his who lived in DETROIT became ANOTHER MENTOR. And it turned out that these SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE were part of a nationwide RING OF MENTORS looking for guys like me DOWN ON THEIR LUCK to help them achieve THE AMERICAN DREAM. And in a pretty short time I’d found FIVE MENTORS. And they showed me what THEY did to become MULTIMILLIONAIRES. Again, it’s not just about the MONEY, it’s about THE GOOD LIFE: HEALTH, WEALTH, love, and HAPPINESS.

This isn’t a GET RICH QUICK scheme. You know, like they say, if things sound TOO GOOD to be true, they are TOO GOOD to be true. I’m not PROMISING YOU THAT TOMORROW you can BUY A LAMBORGHINI. But what I am telling you is that IT CAN HAPPEN FASTER THAN YOU THINK. IF you know the PROVEN STEPS: INVEST IN YOURSELF. ALWAYS BE CURIOUS. DON’T BE A CYNIC. Okay? People see people like me and they think, Oh, that’s not real, that’s somebody else. DON’T LISTEN. DON’T LISTEN. BE AN OPTIMIST. Like CONRAD HILTON, the man who started HILTON HOTELS. He said that when he was FIFTEEN YEARS OLD he had to SHOOT A MAN in cold blood to MAKE IT KNOWN that he was a man to be FEARED. The man he shot was an IMMIGRANT with MANY FRIENDS and was also A VERY QUICK DRAW. But Hilton managed to PUT HIM DOWN by SHOOTING HIM IN THE BACK when he TURNED AROUND to talk to a LADY. Hilton did NOT FEEL GOOD ABOUT THIS but he was VERY CERTAIN it was ULTIMATELY FOR THE BEST. And you know what? He was RIGHT. HILTON HOTELS started because of that QUICK THINKING. And the REASON he was such a QUICK THINKER? He’d been reading SUN TZU on the ART OF WAR. That book CHANGED HIS LIFE. BOOKS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE. And in that book SUN TZU said OPTIMISM.

So if you’re a CYNIC, if you’re a PESSIMIST, you don’t need to come in here. DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT. I don’t need to talk to everybody. But if you’re somebody who knows that there’s SOMETHING BETTER, because you know that THE DREAM IS POSSIBLE, come RIGHT IN. You know, to some of you here it’s not necessarily a LAMBORGHINI. Maybe it’s a NEW JOB. A NEW OPPORTUNITY. Starting your OWN COMPANY. Maybe it’s a NEW LIFESTYLE, without so much STRESS. TRAVELING THE WORLD. Becoming a SUCCESSFUL CARD SHARK or learning how to KITE CHECKS SAFELY. Doing those things you know you’re DESTINED TO DO. Maybe you have a STEPFATHER or OTHER RELATIVE who you think needs to learn a HARD LESSON. You can’t do these things unless you UNDERSTAND FINANCES. Money? I don’t call it “money” anymore. I call it FUEL UNITS. YOU MUST HAVE ENOUGH FUEL UNITS to LIVE OUT YOUR DREAM and LIVE OUT YOUR DESTINY. I’m excited to share this AMAZING STUFF. YOU’LL SEE. Not because of anything about me, but because I’ve been FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO LEARN from MENTORS many YEARS ahead of me. Not just in BOOKS LIKE THESE, though I LOVE BOOKS, but also REAL IN-PERSON MENTORS.

Let me SHARE WITH YOU these THREE TIPS that have made ALL THE DIFFERENCE in my LIFE. They’re PRACTICAL. You can do them TODAY. You can start on them TODAY. GET OFF SOCIAL MEDIA. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO ENCOURAGE YOU TO BE YOUR BEST SELF AND ARE LIVING THEIR LIVES IN A WAY YOU ADMIRE AND WISH TO EMULATE. AND FIND SOMEONE TO LOVE YOU. I cannot TELL you how SHITTY my life was before I LEARNED THIS LAST LESSON from my MENTOR in GAINESVILLE. So right now I’m going to OPEN UP THIS GARAGE DOOR and the first TEN PERSONS to walk in here are the ones I will IMPART MORE WISDOM TO. Just WALK IN. It all starts RIGHT HERE.

APPLE COMPUTERS STARTED IN A GARAGE EVERYBODY. SO DID DELL. And WENDY’S. And BARNES & NOBLE. There is enough room for TEN PERSONS in this garage. ONLY TEN. SERIOUSLY encouraging you to WALK RIGHT IN. Only OPTIMISTS, though. Only REAL OPTIMISTS in HERE. We’re going to CHANGE the WORLD and do it with KNOWLEDGE!
