Hey! Hope your summer is going well! Today, I want to share some principles that have changed and continue to change my life.
I shared these thoughts at our most recent event, Fund Launch Live – May 2023. They have guided me personally and professionally.
Let’s dive in!
Your Greatest Hook
Tony Robbins once said, “You are your greatest hook.” The person that gets you from where you are to where you want to be is you.
Years ago, I really wanted to get married to this amazing girl. So, I was the one who had to put forth a lot of effort to make it happen.
Tim Ballard, who also spoke at Fund Launch Live, was striving to save American children from sex trafficking.
This is great, but he wanted to save foreign children from sex trafficking.
So, Tim took the initiative and soon made it happen.
I heard of a woman who wanted to be married. She was older, and sometimes thought she couldn’t do it.
But, she decided to try an experiment: 30 dates with 30 guys in 30 days. She blogged the whole thing and update her readers on the dates.
This woman hit it off with guy #30 and ended up marrying him! She made that happen!
What if I Fail?
“But Bridger, what if I fail?”
If you fail, then make it epic.
Jordan Belfort, the Wolf on Wall Street, went to federal prison after running a fraudulent fund.
Now, his net worth is approximately $115M and he’s an author, speaker, and entrepreneur.
I’m not telling you to go commit fraud, but I’m saying that there’s a way to bounce back.
Like I said at Fund Launch Live,
“Sometimes we are so afraid to fail that we never try.”
I’ve never seen anyone fail after seeing them put 100% of their time, energy, and focus into something.
“We as humans are incredible. We can create or shape anything as long as we are focused on it.”Bridger Pennington – Fund Launch Live – May 2023
