“There’s a paddle coming for your ass.”
I was so excited about this book, I shelved the planned podcast episode in order to get this one out…
Today we’re jumping in on billionaire Tilman Fertitta’s book “Shut up & Listen!”
Fertitta is the owner of The Golden Nugget Casinos, over 600 restaurants including Morton’s Steakhouse, Landry’s Seafood, Saltgrass Steakhouse, & Rainforest Cafe to name a few…
Oh & he’s the owner of the NBA’s Houston Rockets.
Obviously, there’s a reason Fertitta can tell you to shut up & listen.
He starts the book with, “There’s a paddle for everyone’s ass & you never know when it’s coming or where it’s coming from…
…the “paddle” is the force that’s taking square aim at your success & growth.”
Someone, somewhere is working to overtake you or knock you off your lead…so you better be the bull.
🔥Part of the reason the paddle finds your ass is because you’ve lost your hunger.
Hunger goes both ways…
In good times, you grow overconfident & complacent, thinking it’ll stay good forever…
Nothing stays the same. 🔥When it’s good, bad is on the way…🔥When it’s bad, good ain’t far off.
In good times keep your hunger by working with (Fertitta’s) “Poor Mindset” & “95/5 Rule” (my favorite).
& when it’s bad, keep your hunger.
In bad times it’s easy to accept that it’s too late, you’re outmatched, or have no options.
Not true…never stop fighting for options. “Until they padlock your front door” or you’re physically restrained, you still have options.
You just don’t see them because the only thing you see in your darkness is despair.
View your “problems” as challenges & you’ll find your silver linings.
Get the book…I’ll keep it with me and use as a reference guide.
Stay in The Sales Life 💪
