One of the phrases that’s really hit me over the years, which I think is from Tony Robbins is, if it’s to be, it’s up to me. And what does that mean? Well, it means if anything in your life is going to happen, it’s up to you. You’ve got to make it happen. It’s not down to anyone else, no one else is going to come along and make it happen for you. You need to make it happen. And that realisation that I am the one that has to make things happen, has allowed me to make huge progress over the last few years with Popup Business School, with my life with what’s happening. I think previously, when I was a lot younger, I waited for things to happen. And there’s definitely one thing I have learned is if you are waiting for things to happen to you, you will be waiting a long, long time. If you want to make something happen. You have to start it. You have to create the energy, you have to make it happen. And you are the source of all the things that you create in your life. So you’ve got to start, you got to take action. If you want to earn more money, take action on sales and marketing. If you want to hire someone new for your business, take action and go networking and put out messages. If you want to go on a nice holiday, take action and start saving. If it’s to be it’s up to you. You can make it happen. Monday morning motivation videos are designed to help you get going. That’s all I really want is for you to take action and for you to get going. The one thing I know is that it starts with you. If it’s to be it’s up to you.
