So, today was a really big deal over here in my country, the United Kingdom, or Great Britain as some of you will know it by. It was a day that will go down in history.
A few (million) idiots voted us out of the European Union, a market of 500 million people and our biggest trading partner.
Already our currency, the pound, has tanked, dropping to it’s lowest level since I was a boy.
The saddest part for me – as a proud Scot – was that Scotland as a nation voted to remain in the EU. But because we are only 5 million strong and England is ten times our size, we’ve still been voted out along with the other members of the United Kingdom.
But I’m not going to despair. Despite the fact that right now my country is less safe, less wealthy (billions wiped of the stock market today) and less democratic, I know it will bounce back. Defeat is only temporary and our great nation will emerge from all of this possibly stronger.
After all, change is usually positive and often leads to great improvements.
But, in any case –
It serves as a fantastic example of why you need to control your own destiny and write your own history.
You all need a Plan B because ‘The Man’ ain’t always going to play ball with you.
I like to think strategically. Okay so the pound dropped like a stone today – but the value of gold shot up massively. And I’ve had a gold bullion account for a few years. So in actual fact I have made money today.
Also I don’t have to work for anyone else. So the economic volatility that may ensue over the next few years won’t affect me or my income too much.
So, I strongly urge you all to grasp your future with both hands and don’t rely on the ‘wisdom’ of others to look after you.
After all, there’s a big election in November right? Who’s to say what will happen then? Be in control and take that niggling worry out of the equation.
And just keep telling yourself this;
It’s not over until I win

PS:So we know that Success is rarely a straight line right?
But getting your business off the ground in the first place is the greatest challenge…there are so many forces weighing you down and keeping you from gaining upward momentum.
Even when you’re picking up speed and finally have enough lift to start climbing higher, there will be various challenges pulling and pushing you left and right, making it difficult to keep everything balanced and on track.
But…once you’ve reached “cruising altitude,” things get MUCH easier.
