What motivates you to work on your dreams?

codie sanchezIn this episode, Codie Sanchez, founder + CEO of Contrarian Thinking, joins Josh Trent to explain why money is freedom, why you need to think for yourself, how creating a villain in your life can push you forward, what it takes to be a contrarian, what steps you can take to achieve financial freedom, and what makes successful people different from others.

“If you look at the amount of people that capitalism has pulled out of poverty, as measured by countries that have actually instituted it as opposed to taken it away, the numbers don't lie. There are huge issues with it but it is the only one that we can categorically say continues to lift people out of poverty. I think what we actually need to do, we need to export more people into ownership.”Codie Sanchez

Power Quotes From The Show

Skin in The Game

“A lot of humans are acting without skin in the game because they don't have equity, upside in their job, or don't own any assets. They don't have things to lose so that becomes the tragedy of the commons which is when everybody's responsible for somebody and nobody takes care of it.” – Codie Sanchez

Put On an Armor

“In order for us to succeed through life, we need to put on armor. And the armor in my case is often the exact opposite of what people think it is. It's a reminder of all the things that I've been able to overcome over the years. When difficult things happen to you, if you can alter them, you can really move forward in a way that nothing really hurts anymore.” – Codie Sanchez

Contrarian Thinking

“If you were to go out to a group of 100 people and ask them: “Do you think that you think well?” The answer of most people would be “Of course, yes.” And that's why we're crazy on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram because we don't actually question our ability to frame our own individual thoughts which is a huge mistake. The smartest, richest, happiest people I know question everything, including themselves. They question most themselves.” – Codie Sanchez
