How to Make Millions, Affect Millions and Feel Like a Million Bucks – Kash Shaikh

Published

on

Welcome once more to the “How to Be a Grownup Podcast Breakdown”!  My name is Erik Andress and I am the host of this show.  Today, I am humbled and grateful to bring you the words and wisdom of entrepreneur and mastermind behind the #besomebody movement, Kash Shaikh!  He is an example of hustle, positivity and hope that we can all look to and try to emulate!

Check out this podcast interview with Kash to learn all his tips, tricks, and techniques that he wants you to know to live a empowered life:

In this podcast, Kash shares powerful insight on how his past experiences and the fight for success that he endured, have given him invaluable knowledge that people around the world need to hear and study!

While there were a lot of gems this inspiring entrepreneur dropped, here are the three most important ways Kash believes that you can do to dramatically increase the quality of your life:

1. There are many different valid avenues towards lasting success

We get told a lot that there is one way to succeed.  You have to get the right grades to get into the right college.  After attending the right college, you will enter the workforce and find comfortability in the fabric lined walls of your four foot by four foot cubicle.  Soon you will find the adequate romantic partner and …ZZZZZZZ (*falls asleep mid sentence*)  It’s BORING even just typing it out!  The rules that have been imposed on you are PRETEND!  Teachers, administrators, parents, bosses and so many more well meaning people have tried to keep you on the well trod path of comfortability and success.  

You were BORN to chase greatness.  There are extraordinary men and women over time that have MADE history not simply participated in it.  Not a single one of these thought leaders made their mark on the world by doing the same thing that society has always done.  Not a single one of those influential individuals changed society by embracing the status quo.  Go beyond your boundaries of comfortability.  Believe in the parts of you that are sensational and understand that you can use those to fuel your success in business, in relationships and in life!

“At first they’ll ask why you’re doing it.  Later they’ll ask how you did it.” – Nathan Chan

2. Hear your haters, but keep moving forward towards your dreams

What steps did you take this morning to differentiate today from EVERY other day of your life?  Did you eat a healthier breakfast?  Did you sneak in a thirty minute workout before you had to head off to work or school?  Did you hop on a call with your business partner to get a little grind in before you had to start your day in full?  Did you send a text to your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife to let them know how grateful you are that they are in your life?  If you aren’t pushing yourself to be better from the moment you wake up, to the time that you lay your head on the pillow in the evening, then your haters are right about you.  Then those that doubt you have a valid point.

Many people simply dismiss the naysayers, when they should be looking to see if there is any truth in their criticism of you.  Are you going down a path that will lead your business into ruin?  Are you dating somebody that detracts from your happiness as opposed to adding to it?  Are you surrounding yourself with people that enable you to make destructive decisions instead of constructive ones?  Develop a keen sense of self-awareness and become your own harshest critic.  Demand excellence and discipline from yourself in all areas of your life.  You can not have uncommon results when you keep taking common action.  So, buck mediocrity by taking constructive criticism and pushing yourself to be more than anybody believed you were capable of becoming!

Most haters are stuck in a poisonous mental prison of jealousy and self-doubt that blinds them to their own potentiality. Steve Maraboli

3. Sacrifice being comfortable for the greatness you are capable of achieving

We don’t go to movies to see the main character succeed immediately.  We flock to the cinema to see somebody that embodies the “underdog story”.  We watch films like this because they resonate with us at a core level, and shakes up something primal within our hearts.  We love these movies because they portray some unassuming character that is willing to risk it all to find glory.  They are willing to leave behind the comforts of home to face down internal or external demons.  We love these films because we want to see that “underdog” spirit in us!  

Understand that this kind of heroism doesn’t have to be relegated to movies.  It doesn’t have to be stuck on the silver screen.  You are the hero of this story.  You are the main character that is charged with facing down the challenges in your life.  It is now or never.  Your journey towards success doesn’t start tomorrow.  It has to start right here, right now, in this very moment.  Get up from your chair and start making those choices that will lead you towards the success that you deserve to have.  Lace up those tennis shoes and go exercise.  Keep cold calling for your business until you get the coveted “yes” that you have been looking for.  Call your significant other RIGHT NOW and tell them you just needed them to know that you loved them.  Stop telling yourself that making the same choices, doing the same things the same way that you have always done them, is suddenly going to yield different results!  You need to let go of your comfortability and start pushing yourself towards mastery!

“You must be willing, at any moment, to sacrifice who you are for what you will become.” – Eric Thomas

What You Can Learn From My Ultimate “I Am Screwed” Moment.

Published

on

When I was 16 years old, I had the ultimate “I am screwed moment.”

Everything from this point on happened in slow motion. What I’m about to describe probably happened in the space of thirty minutes but it felt like five hours.

I was walking down the street with my buddy one night, eating a paddle pop ice cream. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a group of about twenty teenagers running towards us, dressed in black.

I instantly knew that something was up and as they got closer, we both realized we were screwed and there was nowhere to run to.

Seconds later the gang of teenagers came straight towards us as fast as they could.

“I got lucky and copped a baseball bat to the head. My friend wasn’t so lucky. He was repeatedly stabbed by several different people and there was blood everywhere.”

As I saw what happened to my friend, I knew I’d be next. I was hit so many times with the baseball bat that I was numb from the pain. Everything started to go white.

Then I heard a faint voice. The voice was calling my name out.

I listened to what the young man was saying and realized he was saying that his little brother knew me. All of a sudden, he put out his hand, lifted me off the ground and told me to run in the other direction, or I’d end up like my friend.

I somehow managed to get on my feet and run, but I was not giving up on my friend. I ran around the back of the shopping center that we were standing outside of and entered the building. I ran to the first security guard I saw and told them I needed help.

In my search to get help, miraculously, my friend had made it into the shopping center and he was being treated by a number of bystanders for his massive knife wounds.

I went over and spoke to him. He was okay and things looked better than I expected. I had about sixty seconds of calmness. Then I looked to my left.

Through the glass doors, I could see the same gang of teenagers running into the shopping center. Everyone including the two security guards ran in opposite directions.

My friend with his multiple knife wounds also ran and there were bandages everywhere as he made a run for it (I’m not even sure how he was able to move).

This time I was the unlucky one. I ran into the part of the shopping center that was closed for the night and three of the youths followed me. I’d never been so afraid because I saw what they did to my friend.

I ended up in the shopping centers food court and I hid in the darkness. I tried to control my breathing, but it was hard to silence the fear inside of me. I still remember the white Nike pants I was wearing and the bright red Sean John jumper I had on (I later discarded them because of the memory they left).

Again, through some kind of miracle, the three boys did not see me. They ran off in another direction and I stayed under the table.

The pain of my wounds started to set in. I knew deep down I was safe and so the fight or flight response was turned off. All of a sudden, moving and walking felt very painful.

I could feel broken bits of teeth in my mouth.


The aftermath.

After some time had passed, I manage to reconnect with my friend. By that time there was an ambulance on the scene and he managed to get his knife wounds treated. He got lucky and no vital organs were affected.

The next day I went to school and people could see I had gone through one hell of an ordeal. One of my friends in the year level below, came and found me and explained to me that it was his older brother and friends that attacked me.

They had mistakenly thought that we had come from a party, because of the direction we came from, where he was beaten up. He told me that because they had recognized me, to some degree, I was spared.

The story doesn’t end here though (I wish it did). Even after the brutal event, one of the attackers was still upset with me. I didn’t know why and it made no sense. I had multiple times where he and his friends were waiting for me in certain places and I was told they would harm me.

Through a mutual friend, I was able to resolve the conflict and I found out that a few of them were close friends with a few of my friends. In the coming years, I got to know my attackers.

“They were not the horrible violent people I encountered on that night. They slowly changed their ways and one of them has gone on to do extraordinary kind acts all over the world.”


A revelation from this “I am screwed” moment.

After this horrible event had occurred, I tried to make sense of it. I was not a violent person in any way but in a way, I had created this path for myself.

During my teenage years, I let rap music and violence dominate my life. I thought they were both cool.

The revelation from all of this was that I knew I had to change my life. I knew that the path I was on had led me to this moment and only I could change things. The next time an attack like this happened, I may not be as lucky.

I gave up rap music, I changed my group of friends, I started a business with my brother, I quit smoking and I disengaged from anything that was violent. Looking back, an “I am screwed” moment can be extremely valuable. It’s during these difficult times that we learn about who we are and what we can do to change our lives.

I would never have become obsessed with legacy, giving back and personal development if I hadn’t had this life or death experience.

I’m now fully aware of my mortality and I’m never going to take another day for granted.

Everything can change in a split second for better or for worse. What you do in that moment is up to you.

Nothing happens randomly (even this attack). Everything happens for a reason and when you ensure you get the lesson from it, you can go on to do extraordinary things.

I’m typing these words and reaching millions of people with them, partly because of this “I am screwed” moment.
