In this article I go over how how your free time is killing your success . You can wish to be successful but until you apply what I talk about in this article you can just keep wishing.

how your free time is killing your success

You Have The Same 24 Hours As Bill Gates

From the time you wake up until you go to sleep you have something in common with the successful.

The Rich and Poor all have 24 hours to either grow or die.

The difference between you and Bill Gates is that he uses his Free Time better than you do.

Let me guess how you use your Free Time:

  • Scroll through your Facebook News Feed
  • Watch 2 hours of YouTube video’s
  • Check what people posted on Instagram
  • Play on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One

Of course you probably do workout a few times a week.

You may even work on your side hustle a few hours a week.

But even then you can’t help yourself, you just have to Google something.

You really must want to stay in the same position in your life.

But since you are reading this I will also guess that you have the desire to change.

The Rich And Successful Think Differently

As you know anyone who is successful thinks differently than the unsuccessful.

I won’t go all the way into how they think differently in this post, but I will cover how they look at Free Time.

To most people (Unsuccessful) Free Time is a time to take it easy and distract themselves.

But to the successful their Free Time is a time where they can get more done or plan their next move.

While you are watching YouTube the guy who is killing it at life is making his next move.

You will continue dreaming about the life you want while he is living it.

He is Taking Action and making things happen.

You can continue wishing things were better or you can start making them better.

Now let’s move to how you can use your Free Time to your advantage.

How A Hustler Uses Their Free Time

As a hustler you hold yourself to a higher standard than average people.

While you might not be an exact god you must hold yourself to that level of excellence.

Instead of waking up an hour before going into work you will wake up 3 hours before you go in.

In that 3 hour window you will do something that benefits you.

Whether that be working out, working on your hustle, or educating yourself.

No longer are you going to waste your Free Time.

You have great potential, but you will never achieve anything worthwhile if you keep living how you do.

I’ve said this before but I will say it again:

You can spend hours watching Motivational stuff, or you can Take Action

Leave the countless Motivational Video’s that pump you up to the losers.

Only mere mortals need a constant stream of Motivation.

Do you know what those video’s really do?

They distract you from taking the required actions that you need to in order to change your life.

While some of those video’s do offer some value, you will waste countless hours of your Free Time watching them.

As a hustleryou will grow much faster if you just Take Action.

Instead of reading about starting a Drop Ship business, you will start one.

Instead of reading hours of articles about working out, you will go to the Gym.

Instead of wanting to be a Sex God(AMZ), you will have lots of sex.

My 3 Step Plan To Monetize Your Free Time

You now know that to be a hustler you must be different.

Let me give you my 3 step plan to monetize your free time.

By now you should have started working on a side hustle.

If you haven’t then I want you to start right now.

Here is a list of side hustles:

  • Drop Shipping
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Blogging 
  • E-Commerce
  • eBay
  • Private Label

Heck you could even start an offline hustle that is used to fund your online hustle.

Years ago when I was selling items on eBay I would cut grass for neighbors.

By doing this I was making $100-300 a week with eBay and then $145 from cutting grass.

In High School that was GREAT money!

There are a million ways to make money for yourself, but you only have to choose one.

To monetize your Free Time you will do 3 things only:

  1. Select A Hustle
  2. Learn The Basics
  3. Work, Work, and Work

Do not deviate from those 3 things.

If you do, you will begin wasting time.

Of course there will be times where you need to read up on it more.

But do not dedicate hours of your Free Time to research.

Find out a solution if you can’t fix the problem, then get back to work.

Further Information And Closing Thoughts

Life is far simpler than you think.

To become a “Success” all that is required is for you to Take Action.

The good part is that you can increase your level of success.

You know the type of life that you want, but you feel trapped.

Follow my 3 step plan to monetize your Free Time and you will jump out of the cage.

You don’t need to pay some Guru $700 for access to his “Mastermind Secrets”.

Instead just Take Action.

My focus is on being a No BS site that keeps it real with you.

You don’t want to hear about how you can change your life.

You want to know how you can do it in actionable steps.

Here are more resources that you can use to start Taking Action:

  1. Great post. You could walk down the street and into a shopping mall and you’ll see people glued to their SmartPhones or Laptops. Most of these people will be scrolling through Instagram, or mindlessly go down their Snapchat stories. Other people will be working on an internet side business because they have no time to waste. Everyone is addicted to the internet. It’s just a matter of becoming a producer or consumer.

  2. Dylan, the new site layout and theme is great. Nice and easy to read.

    I was wondering – you said you started out selling items on Ebay when you were in High School. What kind of thing were you selling?

    Also, I was listening to a GLL podcast recently that spoke about productivity. As a result, I wrote on a piece of paper ‘Is this the most productive thing you could be doing at this moment?’

    I look at it regularly to try to gauge whether what I’m doing is what I should be doing.

    • Back at that time my biggest money maker was buying “broken” phones, repairing them, and then selling them. Later I started selling Comic books and then I would sell items from yard sales.

      Great reminder. For me I have ” If you have time to BS then you obviously don’t want to progress in life.” I look at it daily.

  3. In other words What Dylan is trying to say is for you to stop bullshitting and get to fucking work!

    Make something of yourself rather than waiting!

    Great post Dylan!
