I remember sitting on my bed during my secondary school days, watching the television series Greys Anatomy with such awe. I would watch the surgeons perform ambitious procedures, and still manage to accomplish them swiftly and with incredible attention to detail. At that very moment, I knew I needed to strengthen my creative thinking for the sake of helping others. As a result, for the rest of my school years, I focused on taking the steps toward becoming those doctors portrayed on the show. I even immersed myself in the medical field to get a first hand look on what awaited me.
It was not until my mid years of University that I started to question the methods behind the American education system. Why did I feel forced to enroll in courses that were not relevant to my specialized career?
I started asking myself, was there a definitive reason for me to go through years of medical school and thousands of dollars to have a full-time job that is:
B- Not on my own time
I remembered the conversations I had with doctors during those times. Even though they were finally out of medical school and training in their field, they still had years before they finished paying off their debt. One of them even told me, “don’t do it, you’ll regret it.”
A few months later, I realized who I was meant to become. Watching my first webinar by Dan Lok turned out to be a true pivot point in my life. It was at that moment that I took a vow to live my life doing what I loved the most. I was fine with being in debt, but I would rather be in debt for something that made me feel proud of what I was doing. Like Simon Sinek states:
“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.”
This epiphany grew into having a positive outlook on life, which motivated me to influence that same positivity onto others. Throughout my journey, I became conscious of a time where I felt forced by society to adhere to a certain path, and I considered the amount of people that might have felt the same way.
Now, as a high ticket closer, I can help others understand that we have control over our own lives. For a living, I take the time to talk to people that are experiencing problems that need to be fixed. Whether it’s financial, their failing business, or maybe, an emotional burden holding them back from moving forward. I have a solution. I’m not just closing them on a service that brings results, I am closing them on the value those results can bring.
