Shit happens or shift happens.
John Rankins is someone who has been in business for more than 30 years and survived and thrived in economic crisis before.
How can you shift your perspective and turn crisis into opportunity?
I realized at an early stage, that life’s not fair.
Sometimes shit happen in life, and it can suck.
I didn’t have an easy life.
🚫Living on food stamps
🚫Absent mom struggling to put food on the table.
My brother and I had to step up.
We worked at night sorting through trash and saving anything that could be recycled to make extra money to help pay the rent.
My older brother and I had to take extra jobs so my mom could pay the rent, so we didn’t get kicked out of our house. Not evicted, kicked out of our house.
We were exhausted.
What drove me to push through it was the fact that I HATED poverty.
It didn’t matter that I was tired, I was hungry, or I was sleepy. I knew I had to push through it.
I had to get off my ass and do the work – blood, sweat, and tears.
Today I reap the rewards of my harvest. I have an awesome team and career because of the challenges I overcame.
I’ve been tried and tested and I discovered my strengths and true potential. I learned how to run a business and I learned how to sell.
Now, I use my skills to make millions for myself and my clients.
