Um, certain things will kind of deflate our tire a little bit. Sometimes it will give us a full-on blowout and we’ve just, uh, we lose all of our forward momenta. We’ve lost all the progress we’ve made up to this point. Literally, you come home and a fire burns your whole house down.
If you think about it, I was just talking with my kids about this just last night. And it said, if you think about it at that time, you feel devastated. Like I could never do this again. Uh, this is it. This is a done for me. Uh, this year 2020 has had that type of experience for a lot of people where they’ve lost their business. They’ve lost their livelihood, their jobs, their things. And to them, it feels like a death sentence. It feels like, um, I’m just finished and there’s nothing more that I can do. Whereas if you think about it from your whole life’s perspective, everybody, every single person that’s ever started on the face of this planet comes into this planet with nothing Carpet Cleaning Broken Arrow. You come in as a small baby, you come in with a no possessions. You don’t come in. I mean, maybe there’s a few kids that come in as a trust fund, baby already got their entire life planned out for them.
But the reality is that most everybody lives off of their parents for a time being until they have accumulated enough skills and knowledge and confidence. Confidence is probably the number one thing. If you’ve got the confidence that you can do something, you are going to do something Carpet Cleaning Broken Arrow. It’s when we lose that confidence that we just sit at home and do nothing. If you just sit at home and never leave your house opportunity does not come to you. You go to it, you have to get out there and be in the place, sit yourself in some type of search circumstance or just go out there and hunt it down, go out there, try to find it. And you know, you make it come to you. Um, and so there are, um, you know, the first, if you’re five years old and your parents died, then you’re going to have to care about somebody.
If you’re 10 years old and you end up alone, um, your parents have to move somewhere else and you go off to boarding school, you’re going to have to have somebody care for you. You get to about 15 to 20, you can make it. I had one of our customers a couple of weeks ago. She was, um, now in her twenties, but she had left at 16 and gone off to just decide to she wanted to live on her own. I don’t know what the situation was that led to that on of as a, you know, parents kicking her out or her, her just leaving or what the reason was. But since 16, she had been on her own. She is now 26 and she’d been on her own for 10 years. And she had just made her life work. She’d gone out and found odds and ends jobs.
And now she’d worked up to where she bought her own house and she was just, you know, taking life and learning it as she went along. And a lot of times we discounted the impact or the power, all of these cumulated experiences have on us. Um, yes, we accumulate things and sometimes we put all of our thoughts and ideas that it took me 10 years to accumulate all of this stuff, all of these things to finally have gotten that job to have gone through Carpet Cleaning Broken Arrow. Um, and yes, it did take you 10 years. The first time to do that, the first time I put together a puzzle, it takes me quite a bit of time. Once I have assembled that puzzle the second time, if I went back to redo that puzzle, the second time I went back to do it, I’m going to be a lot better at that puzzle because I already have the mastery.
I already have the skill. The reason we get paid more than somebody just starting, the ways that I can make more than somebody just started is because I have experience that people just starting don’t have. So they’re going to easily hit the wall. They’re going to easily get thrown off track or end up doing something that takes them far off course. And that hard experience is going to teach him eventually that that’s not the way to do it, because if you do it that way, eventually you end up so far off track that it takes you forever to get all the way back. And so you learn from those experiences. I hired her, uh, had a, was that a business seminar and they were told it to me this way. And I thought it was a great, I think it’s, I don’t know if it’s a real example or if it’s a fictitious one, just to prove the point.
But I think it’s a great encapsulation of this concept or idea. There’s a guy he’s worked for a company and he’s, uh, in their financial department and he makes an error. He makes a mistake by one decimal point. And that one decimal point costs the company $1 million. It’s a million-dollar mistake that they make. And he realizes what he’s done. He correct? Correct. The error buddies, all not until after the $1 million has been lost. And so he takes his, uh, uh, goes into his boss, takes all of this stuff and says, you know what? I’m, I’m going to resign. I’m going to give you my resignation letter here. He goes with my resignation letter. I am, uh, I’m gonna leave the company. And the owner of the company looks and says, I reject your resignation. He’s like, what? I mean, I just, I just cost you a million dollars.
I like, you know, obviously I know that as soon as they come in, you’re going to fire me and he said, son, he goes, I just spent $1 million on your education. And he says, I know now, if you ever do it again, you’ll be fired instantly. He said, but I just spent a million dollars in your education. Now I know for sure, you will never make that mistake again. And I said, and sometimes we don’t see the value. We do see it. Like if you finish college, you don’t think, man, I need to, you know, if, if I lose my job, I got to go back and start college all over again. Well, no, you’d already know you’ve got college finished. You already know you’ve got five years of experience in this work field done. You you’re starting from that point. So any job you get after college, you’re starting from the point, Hey, I’ve already got my college completed. So any work you do after you’ve done work, you’ve already got all that experience in that base. You can do it again and you can do it again quickly because you’re going to start at your current base of knowledge with all of your, the skillset that you already have. Carpet cleaning Tulsa.
