Why you SHOULD put your back up against the wall

Have you ever intentionally backed yourself into a corner?

Put your back up against the wall, leaving yourself no choice but to fight and figure out how to make things work?

Unless you’re one in a million, you’re *probably* going to have to walk through your own version of this on your quest for Freedom.

Take Mitch, the Round Table Knight I mentioned in yesterday’s email.

His business has grown to a point where he has to make a decision:

– Continue splitting his focus between his day job, family, and side hustle


– Capitalize on the opportunity afforded by his side hustle, and double down on his family and flipping said side hustle into his main hustle

I did similar when I decided the time had come to sling my last latte for Starbucks.

I figured out a way to secure enough income to cover my rent/food for the first two months…and cut the chord having no clue where cash was going to come from when month three rolled around, but assumed that I’d figure it out because it was either that, or crawl back to Starbucks.

It’s a scary decision to intentionally put yourself into a place where you know you’re either going to succeed or fall flat on your face.

It goes against human nature.

Which is why so few will ever do it.

But if you want to access the immense amount of Freedom available to you…

It’s a risk you must be willing to take when the time is right (don’t go quitting your job without an actual plan or having another income stream).


There’s one thing Mitch and myself had when we made the decision to back ourselves into the corner and fight.

And it’s something that can make the difference between success and failure.

We had support, and access to insight from those who came before us, having already earned their Freedom.

I had an expensive mastermind.

Mitch has his seat at The Clandestine Round Table, and his subscription to The Sorcerers Guild Newsletter.
