They will suck mercilessly from me my sleep, my time, attention, and my money.
They are emotional tyrants, constantly pulling on my heart strings.
They will utilize every opportunity to make me feel guilty to achieve their own ends.
My kids, they are tiny vampires.
But true to vampire lore, once bitten, you discover you’re indwelt with a strength, charm, and unspeakable power unmatched by common humans.
You begin to vampirically sleep more during daylight hours, because something possessed you to get up in the middle of the night to help your wife with the infant.
You begin to find within yourself the instinct to superhumanly protect, provide, and preserve the bloodline.
And you are so sure of your calling, you don’t need to wait around for anyone to give you permission.
It is your calling, and yours alone.
Your wife can’t and won’t do it for you.
Your brother or dad won’t step in to pick up the slack.
And it would be a shame if they did.
As the provider for your family, and as a businessman, it is your responsibility, and yours alone, to constantly reflect, refine, and improve your business so you can consistently earn more and more money.
Because no man wants to be a broke-ass dad or a bitch-ass husband.
Not with the tiny vampires constantly at your heel, looking to you to lead them, guide them, and provide for them.
But just because you have this responsibility, it does not mean you have to walk this path alone.
Some of our brothers in prison often went to desperate measures to provide for their families, and I will pour one out for their efforts.
However, the part they missed was that doing things out of desperation risked the longevity of their influence and presence in the lives of their wives and kids.
Rather than asking for help or accountability – which is not a sign of weakness but a sign of wisdom and strength – the man who broke the rules has to live with the fact that now some other man is caring for his kids and wife.
But the wealthy man understands that he can have his cake and eat it too.
The wealthy man finds success and wealth while also playing by the rules.
It doesn’t mean you have to like the rules.
God knows I hate paying taxes or controlling anger that would make me do or say things I’d regret.
But we as men have to play by the rules, or else our families will suffer, or perhaps we will become estranged from our families against our will.
And we can’t go it alone.
I would be nothing without the countless mentors I’ve had and authors of books I’ve read that have helped me strengthen my business, my personal development, my finances, and ultimately my role as a father and husband.
That’s why I love putting my heart and soul into helping men develop principles, strategies, and tactics to succeed in business and finances.
Always the student, I see my role as the humble counselor to your growing kingdom.
It’s your kingdom, you make the call, you take the actions.
And I’m simply here to help you along the way.
