{Beginning with} zero

bo eason

Let’s {discuss} {beginning with} zero. {EASILY} had {to accomplish} it all {once more}, {may i}?

If I had {to start out} my business over – {without} resources, no money, no connections – {may i}?

Could I {get back to} living in {an area} in Mountain View, paying $800/month in rent, earning basically nothing while {I acquired} {a small business} off {the bottom}?

Yeah, {I believe} I could {take action}. {Nonetheless it} would really suck.

If I’m honest with myself, {I acquired} used to {having the ability to} buy stuff on Amazon without {fretting about} {the purchase price}. It’s {no real surprise} {that folks} get comfortable {and much more} financially conservative {because they} {grow older}. The surprise is how fast it happens.

So when {I believe} about {individuals who} had {to start out} over – going from being {the very best} to a “nobody” {the very next day} – I admire {a} ton.

It’s {a very important factor} to be {getting started} {from the ground upwards} and {going right through} {the most common} struggles: {virtually no time}, no money, no idea {how to proceed} next. I’ve done that. There’s purity in the struggle, {nevertheless, you} also {need to get} out {as fast as you possbly can}.

But there’s something especially painful about having been the best…and then {needing to} start {yet again}.

I remember {through the} 2009 recession, {there is} {articles} about formerly wealthy families who had {to provide} {everything} up, downsize, {and present} up their comforts: their houses, cars, sometimes their luxury memberships.

All the commenters were saying “Boo hoo, so sad, {the majority of us|many of us} don’t {create a} fraction {of this}.”

But there’s real pain in seeing {the very best}, then starting {in the bottom} again. It’s {not only} about losing {an automobile} – {an automobile} {is a} thing. You lose your status. You lose your identity.

Easy to mock until it happens {for you}.

Do {you imagine} you could {take action}? {In the event that you} had {to start out} {yet again} as a 20-year-old {without} money {no} connections, {would you} {ensure it is}?

What {easily} asked you that question {a decade} from now, when you’re {convenient}, more established? {Would you} start {once more}?

Ask your parents. I bet they’ll grimace just {great deal of thought}.

So when I had {the opportunity to} meet {a person who|somebody who} {managed to get} to {the very best} – then had {to start out} {yet again} – {I needed} to ask him what he {experienced}. The things {the majority of us|many of us} don’t {discuss}.

I got {the opportunity to} ask Bo Eason, a former NFL safety. In 1984, he became {a high} draft pick.

He spent 5 five years playing for the Houston Oilers and {SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA} 49ers before his seventh knee surgery ended his NFL career.

What {can you} do when {1 day}, {you’re} the star {before} 50,000 fans…and {the very next day}, you’re a nobody?

As Bo {explained}, “Nobody leaves the NFL voluntarily. Why {can you}?”

I got {the opportunity to} ask him what {it had been} {prefer to} go from being the best…to {beginning with} zero. {I believe} you’ll be surprised {using what} he shares. {And you also} {will} not predict what he {finished up} doing next.

I {desire to} share {among} {the best} parts from our chat. {Inside it}, he {discusses}:

  • How he handled going from being the best…to {being truly a} nobody {another} day
  • How to out-compete bigger, smarter, {and much more} gifted people at anything
  • How he convinced Al Pacino to mentor him

Want {to learn} what {each and every} top performer I’ve interviewed in Brain Trust (including CEOs, athletes, and best-selling authors) ALL {have as a common factor}? Simple. It’s habits. Successful people don’t just catch a lucky break and coast – they systematically identify and integrate winning habits {to their} lives, day in and {day trip}, {for a long time}.
