Stone Payton: [00:00:01] Welcome back to BRX Pro Tips. Lee Kantor and Stone Payton here with you. Lee, it’s time to lay a little bit of Kantor wisdom to our friends. But you’re fond of saying this, and I believe every word of it, “Success is not a math problem. It’s a behavior problem or opportunity.” Yeah?
Lee Kantor: [00:00:23] Yeah. I think that what people do every day, the actions they take every day, and the people they surround themselves with, it’s more of a lever to determine success than it is counting the money and looking at the money part of things. So, you’ve got to kind of start with the people around you. There’s a saying, I think Jim Rohn says, “You’re the average of the five people you are around the most.” So, make sure that you’re around five people that are kind of moving you forward, not five people that are bringing you down. Those people should be supporting and celebrating you. They should be inspiring you and encouraging you. They should be holding you accountable. They shouldn’t be negative drama people that are just kind of whining and complaining. These are people that you need to help take you to the next level.
Lee Kantor: [00:01:16] So, I would first prune the toxic people around you that are holding you back. And then, I would make sure that your actions that you’re taking every day are moving you forward. And if you’re doing things that aren’t moving you forward, I prune those things too. So, I would kind of focus on your behavior and make sure that the behavior you’re doing every single day is moving you to the financial success you desire.
Stone Payton: [00:01:43] Well, what I find encouraging about this strategy, I know a lot of things take time, but you can change your own behavior fast. You can turn your own behavior on a dime.
