Know what I don’t get? Betting on anything or someone else, before yourself.

People will bet their entire savings account hoping to win money on another person’s ability to perform. Yet, they won’t look in the mirror and see the most capable person they know is looking back at them.

Fun fact, I used to hate mirrors. Every reflection was a reminder that I wasn’t where I wanted to be.

Then it hit me in 2016. I wasn’t there because I was betting on others before myself.

I put my faith in a guarantee at a job.

I placed my bet that someone else would be there to help me at every turn.

Want to start winning in life? Stop putting chances on anyone else before you. When you bet on yourself you’re literally calling yourself to perform under any circumstances to get the job done. When you can do that, you WILL start winning in life. It's the undeniable fact that many never get to experience because they bet on everyone else but themselves.

Don't be that person.

Bet ON you, FIRST!

Last but certainly not least, take every bet against you and let it fuel you. It’s exactly where the Bet against Me Mindset came from for me all those years ago.

From this real scenario.

From me finally realizing that I HAD to bet on me, first.
