Can someone pull themselves up from trouble youth to valued member of the community? My guest on this special half-hour episode of The C.A.P. Podcast is Tom Nix, founder of Nix Check Cashing, who started as a low-rider on the streets of San Pedro, Calif., and grew up to be the founder of a valued and trusted institution serving South Central Los Angeles and surrounding communities.
During the show, we chat about his life, his business and his passion for what he calls Life’s Key Concepts. Much of what he has accomplished in life he attributes to one trigger: reading Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. Applying the concepts he learned in that book, and other self-help resources he devoured after that book, he turned his life around and has become a successful businessman and contributor to the Los Angeles county community.
Tom believes that life is a journey or adventure, “and the best way to have a fabulous journey is to look at life as a great adventure, both the good times and the bad times.” He says that cultivating such an attitude will help you take advantage of the opportunities life hands you, as well as overcome the challenges along the way.
“The more you seek security, the less of it you have. But the more you seek opportunity, the more likely it is that you will achieve the security that you desire.”

You see, when people focus on seeking security, they are more often than not focusing on the lack of security they have in their lives. So that is what they keep on attracting.
But, when you focus on seeking opportunity, you are focusing on something positive … and that’s what you attract into your life.
If you aren’t getting the results you want in your life and business, take a look at your dominant thoughts. What are you focusing on most of the day? Are you thinking about what you have and would like more of? Or are you thinking about what you don’t have and you would like less of?
