Warning: This Is Emotional ๐Ÿ˜“ – This One Thing Dominates Every Action I Take & Keeps Me Up At Night Grinding My Face Off.. ๐Ÿ™

4 min read –

Most people will not read this whole story. I have never shared this with anyone until this very moment in this picture. I’m going to leave the names out in here because it is a sensitive subject. In this picture, I was speaking at an e-commerce seminar/meet-up in Miami and I decided to share this following story๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

When I was in school, I wanted to prove everyone wrong that doubted me and my ambitious goals and dreams.

I had a lot of people who thought what I was doing with entrepreneurship was a big JOKE.

Specifically, I had a buddy who for some reason supported me with everything I did like basketball, academics, track and much more.


When it came to starting my own business and building a brand he had the most doubt and negative comments towards what I was doing.

I even made a bet with him that I would achieve all my MASSIVE goals that I said I would when he said I couldn’t and we filmed it and said after 3 months we’d look at it and see who was right. (I ended up achieving all of them)

I completely forgot about it and then one day 5 months later I was scrolling thru my videos on my phone and found it and sent it to him. No reply.

Another 3-4 months pass since I’ve ever talked to him and I get a random text “Hey Josh, I’m super proud of what you been doing, and I’m sorry for always talking sh*t back in the day, keep it up, man”

I contemplated replying since I originally felt hostile because of the negative energy I received months prior that I thought drove me to grind. Knowing my buddy for a few years I also know, just like myself that he LOVES to be right. So I commended him tremendously for reaching out to me. It takes a REAL man for him to do that. So after 12 hours of thinking, I finally replied to his text and let him know how much I appreciate him coming forward and congratulating me after 8+ months of my grind paying off.

Then another 12 hours passed, about 24hrs after the original text, and I received a call from one of my old high school coaches, telling me “Josh, it’s “your buddy” man. He’s dead.. he got in a head on car accident last night”.

My heart froze. I felt horrible but I immediately looked for the positive situation that had to come from this negative.

All of a sudden “Proving people wrong or Doing it for the haters” didn’t feel good at all anymore.

That feeling of proving people wrong that I thought drove me to success was a bad feeling. Even though we had a disconnection, that was my boy and I would give up that “motive” 10 out of 10 times to have him back. I’ll miss him and I know he is in a better place now.


This situation changed my PURPOSE & MISSION.

I realized I don’t put out content, value, and work as hard as I do to prove people WRONG but to prove people RIGHT.

To stop the people who would’ve given up on themselves because of outside opinions or what they parents, teachers, and friends might say to discourage them, I do what I do, so I can inspire & educate those people to become the best they can for THEMSELVES & nobody else.

I do it for the people who can’t, for the people who have permanently lost their opportunity…


For the people who just need a bit more belief in themselves.

It’s not about doing it to prove anybody WRONG.

It’s about doing it to PROVE YOURSELF RIGHT.

This is one of the biggest reasons I do what I do.

So I’m setting out on a mission to change the game forever:

What Kevin Hart did to comedy…

What Drake did to music…

What Tony Robbins did to personal development…

Team Jet Set is doing to E-commerce and Internet Marketing…ย โœˆ๏ธ

Please share this, I want to leave a LEGACY with my mission in honor of my friend.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that
    automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something
    like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    This blog is definitely rather handy since Iโ€™m at the moment creating an internet floral website โ€“ although I am only starting out therefore itโ€™s really fairly small, nothing like this site. Can link to a few of the posts here as they are quite. Thanks much. Zoey Olsen
