    Staying Committed To Accumulating Wealth In Year 2023

    Staying Committed To Accumulating Wealth In Year 2023

    Stop writing your new year’s resolution, it’s time to stay committed to accumulating your wealth this 2023. 
    Today’s episode is about how to continue to grow wealth and how to stay on track with your goals. Set your goals right, don’t list more than three goals because you will only lose focus of what you really want to do. 
    2023 is not the year for excuses. Don’t be afraid to invest this 2023! Listen now! 
     
    No excuses!Any excuse for non performance however valid softens the character. 
    It's a sedative against one's own conscience. 
    When a person uses an excuse, they attempt to convince both themselves and others that being unsatisfactory is somehow acceptable. 
    They perhaps unconsciously attempt to divert the attention away from the performance, the only thing that counts to their own want for sympathy.
    The user is dishonest with themselves as well as others. 
    No matter how good or how valid, the excuse never changes the performance. 
    The world measures in terms of performance alone, no person is remembered in history for what they may have accomplished. 
    History never asked how hard it was to do something nor considered the obstacles that someone had to overcome. 
    No person performed a worthwhile task without consciously ignoring the many plausible excuses. 
    Washington MITRE reported Delaware's running with ice that would crush our boats. 
    Lincoln might have said that people will simply not support a war to keep the South in the union. 
    Eisenhower may have said at Normandy, as the Germans did. 
    The weather made amphibious assault impossible.
    To use an excuse is a habit. We cannot have both the performance habit and the excuse habit. 
    We all have a supply of excuses. The more we use them, the lower our standards become the poor our performance, and the better we perform. 
    The less plausible our excuses become. The next time you want to defend your slothfulness with an excuse instead say no excuses. 
    Notice the startling effect this will have on your self-respect. You will recognize your failure. 
    You have been honest with yourself and you'll be one step closer to the performance standard. 

    Highlights:The year 2022 ended in a rallyAn increase in Social Security for retired peopleGood things that happened with my familySet a small number of goals for yourself in 2023How to continue to grow wealthHow to stay track on with your goals

Emlen is a bright light in the industry

To hear how Emlen is changing the complexion of wealth and hearing how his guests do that as well is incredibly encouraging. He is a bright light in an industry that needs greater representation and Emlen is helping make that possible

When is First Generation wealth opening?

I just listened to the latest episode with Valerie Rivera and that interview resonated with me. I’m a 35 year old union Capenter with a pension and I’m realizing I can’t rely on just that for retirement. I have a lot of 60 plus year old co-workers that can’t retire because their pension isn’t where they need it to be. I do not want to end up in that situation. I would like to be a potential client of Valerie’s and will try and contact her via twitter. Thank you both very much for the information. Love the podcast
