Let’s play a guessing game.
Tell me if you know who’s the person I’m describing:
At age 22, he failed in business.
At age 23, he ran for political office and lost.
At age 24, he started a new business that failed again.
At age 25, he ran for legislature and won.
At age 26, his sweetheart died.
At age 27, he had a nervous breakdown.
At age 29, defeated for Speaker.
At age 31, defeated for Elector.
Age 34, defeated for Congress.
Age 37, elected to Congress. 39 – defeated for Congress again. 46 – defeated for Senate. 47 – defeated for the Vice President. 49 – defeated for Senate. 51 – elected President of the United States.
Who’s that person that stood up again and again, no matter what life threw at him?
By now you think his persistence is what helped him succeed.
Let me take it a step further.
Persistence is one thing – you already have it.
What set Lincoln apart and what will also set you apart is a clear path to success.
He knew that to become president he needed to do a couple of things things.
What about you?
Do you know what’s the path to your financial independence?
Or it’s easy for you to get lost, waste time and throw away money as you try?
Having no clear path sucks.
Yet, it’s so easy to find it and profit from it.
It starts with joining a trustworthy opportunity.
P.S. Here’s another thing I loved about Lincoln.
He was the first president to have a patent – a machine that stopped steamboats that ran aground.
It was a huge problem at the time and this investment of his gave him a nice chunk of cash.
He had a hard-working, entrepreneurial mindset and if he was alive, I would want him on my team.
