If you’re trying to make a change in your life, whether it’s starting a new business or a new project or even starting a new job, come in with abundance instead of coming in with a negative state of mind.
By coming in with an abundant mindset, you come in with more energy, more fire, more passion, more gusto, and you can operate at a higher level.

Hey everyone, I just wanted to take this moment to share with all of you a simple reminder.
So, I help people in trying to navigate entrepreneurship and business and how to scale their companies, but I also deal with a lot of people who ask for advice as far as, “Hey, I’m still in my corporate gig, or I’m still in my job, j-o-b, but I’m looking to get out of it and start a side project, or start a side project.
What’s up, AJ?
“Or start a business while at my full time job.”
And what they harp on a lot is that that the full time job is dragging them down. That it’s holding them back. That it’s making them miserable. And then all they get sucked into is, “I need to make this side project work. “I need to make this, I need to make whatever this new business venture work 100%.”
Thank you for the likes. Keep liking if you like this video.
So I deal with a lot of people who start side projects looking to get out of their corporate gig, and they get stuck in the hamster wheel of “Oh, I need to get out of here because my job is making me miserable, and I need a change.”
And, what they forget is that when they harp on and focus on, “I need to get out of this because I hate it, because I don’t like my coworkers, I don’t like my job, I have no free time. Blah, Blah, Blah.” You add it to the list anything you want, “And I need to start my business.”
That is actually putting you in the wrong state to start the business, to start the job, to start the project. Because you’re thinking about every reason why you need to get out of something and start something else.
The best way to come into a new side project, into a business, or into a new role, or something along those lines is to come in with abundance, abundance and to think, “This is so special. What I have now is special because I get the opportunity to work on this role, work on this gig, work on this project, start this new business”, and you come in with more energy, more passion, more fire, more gusto. And you can operate at a higher level.
But when you think about “I need to make this work because I hate this situation that I’m in right now.”
That’s not the reason to start the business. That’s not the reason start the side project. Yes, it can give you a little bit of fuel, but it’s not going to have the same impact. The same strength as if it would as if you said, “I need to start this business because it is my life passion. It is my purpose. Because I can work on it so effortlessly and time just flies by when I’m working on it.”
That was tremendous for me personally. When I shifted to focus all of my attention on best self. And you can’t bring yourself down with your quote-on-quote day job, and everything that’s making you miserable in it.
So if you wanna start a side project, if you wanna start the new business, if you wanna start the new venture, change your framework of your mind that you have with your current role.
There’s obviously reasons that you’re working in that job, that you started. There’s reasons that you applied for that position. That you signed up for that company, or that you started that business.
Some people start businesses and realize “oh shit, I don’t like this anymore now I want to start a new business cuz that brings me more passion. But I need to get the hell outta this one because it’s making me miserable.”
Well, there’s a reason you started the business. So find those reasons.
Is it because you’re an artist on what you work on? Yes, it’s demanding, and people need your skills and your expertise but in the grand scheme of things, you get to be an artist in whatever you do. Whether you’re an electrician, a plumber, an assistant, a manager, you’re an artist in managing people. You’re an artist in project management.
Is it because at 5:00 you get to turn things off and go home, and shut down, and not have to worry about anything?
Trust me when I tell you that is a huge blessing, that so many people take for granted, and that sometimes I envy. I envy that people have jobs sometimes, and they get to shut down and not focus on the business or something.
For me, being the entrepreneur and the business owner, everything relies on you.
So feel grateful that at 5:00, you can shut it down, and turn it off, and that your weekends are free. Sometimes it’s a blessing. There’s been weeks and weeks and weeks where I’ve gone and not had a single day off, and I know many people like that who are business owners.
Fortunately for me, I love what I do, and it’s fun. But most people don’t get that. So what are the key frames that you can change around in your current position that give you the gratitude to show up and work every day but also allow you to take that gratitude, to take that positive mindset, and then spill that over into and flood that into your side projects, into your business, into your passion project?
Because if you’re holding back by saying, “Oh, I need to get out of this because I can’t do it anymore, or because it’s killing me, or because I hate it, or because it’s making me miserable.”
You have to change that.
Because you cannot operate, you can’t operate anything else in your life. Whether you want to start a side business, start a new venture or a project, or just enjoy your time with your family and friends. Because it will be heavily affecting their time as well.
So, I’m going to close out this with a little bit of gratitude on my end.
It was supposed to pour rain all day today, thunder and lightening. It was just nasty weather, and it was for the most part of the day, very crappy out. But, the sun came out, and the humidity broke. So I came down for a little ride.
Robo, thank you for joining.
You’re gonna like this. I’m gonna share a little bit of gratitude through my day. Most of my day was spent on the computer staring at a screen but for five minutes this evening, I get to look at this. And I came, and I took the motorcycle for a little ride. I’m sitting on it as we speak, as I’m sitting with you.
“Mow your yard.”
But now I get to drive down and look at this beautiful waterway that we have here, the river.
So that’s what I have for you.
Georgina, thank you for the hearts.
So change your perspective. It only takes five minutes.
Think about the things that you’re grateful for even if it’s that you get to spend five minutes outside like I did today. And that’s what I’m grateful for this evening.
So everyone enjoy the rest of your days. Hopefully, it’s beautiful wherever you are this summer season right now today. And I hope that you take the positivity that you have in your work and your job even if its the smallest thing that the bathrooms are clean, you know.
It’s the little things.
And spill that over into the rest of your life and your side projects, your ventures, your personal life, your friends, your relationships, alright everybody take care, thanks.
