Have you ever gone bowling and the bowling ball swerves into the gutters?
It makes bowling a strike about ten times more difficult.
I don’t like the gutters, they are the bane of my bowling alley existence!
The last time I was at the bowling alley I saw some young children bowling and they had these little Gutter Guards that deployed from the side of the lane and prevented the ball from going into the gutters.
What a great idea! If I went bowling with the Gutter Guards up I would be the best bowler in the universe!
Finding consistent success in life is very similar to bowling with huge gutters on either side of a very narrow wooden lane that stretches 400 yards long.
Each time you have a setback it’s just like bowling a huge gutter-ball!
I’ve bowled a ton of gutter-balls in my day: problems with the IRS, getting into debt, messing up relationships, making poor decisions, drinking to excess, etc.
Of course, the only way to totally avoid gutter-balls is to never bowl!
But what if there was a way to put up Gutter Guards on the bowling alley of your life?
You might not bowl a strike every time, but your chances of actually scoring are far higher.
After I went on the show Shark Tank I began plugging into some great training created by LIFE Leadership, a company based in Cary, NC.
The Life Leadership training system acts like Gutter Guards on your path to success.
I became a better husband, my debt started to evaporate, and alcohol is totally absent from my life!
I’m not perfect, I still have a ton of growth to go, but I feel like my path to a greater success is THAT much clearer now.
The Gutter Guards are in place, I just have to keep bowling!
