You only get one shot at this life, and it is your duty to live it responsibly and to live if fully. Forget the naysayers, forget the haters, gather your loins and get to work. Know what you want, know where you are going and everything will work out for you. You just got to take the shot. This year is yours, own it!
Money Within Reach
There is an abundance of money in the world, however, the challenge is how do you get it into your pockets. Well, to have money within reach, you have to have ideas and be able to manifest those ideas to create and provide value to society. Execution of those ideas is key as without that; failure of the idea regardless of how brilliant it is, is bound to happen. You can create, you can innovate, because the power is within your hands. Contemplate the beginnings of Facebook for a second and think about ideas of yours that you are not executing and putting into action. Everyone has ideas, but not everyone is executing the ability to grab money that is within reach. Execute!
There should be no day know as someday in your life, today is always the day. If you want to accomplish anything, now is the time to act, now is the time to produce results, now is the time to make it happen. There are seven days in the week, and someday is not one of them. Remember, that you only live ones and life is not a dress rehearsal!
To be thankful and grateful is what you want to be in life. You waking up to see another day is a blessing. Don’t take the day for granted, don’t take your life for granted. Make it count and be happy that you are alive. Let others do what they need to do to make them happy; mind your own business and do what you need to do to make you happy. The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have. Be so happy that when others look at you, they become happy also. The moment that you start acting like life is a blessing, it starts feeling like one. Happiness begins with you, not with your relationship, your friends, or your job, but with you. Maintain a heart of gratitude always and more good will come to you.
The Powerful Mind
The human mind has magnificent power, it can empower us or it can enslave us. It can take us to the deep end of torment, or take us to the heights of great euphoria. We just have to learn how to manifest that power and put it to good use. The mind can conceive anything we think of, anything we imagine, anything we visualize. The mind is indeed powerful; it is the transformative thoughts of our mind that will take us to our destination; the destination of either greatness or failure. As Albert Einstein once said, ” the true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination”. Your mind has to arrive at the destination before your life does, change your mind, change your life. Even Romans 12:22 states, “Do not conform to the patterns of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind”. Everything starts in the mind and the world is responding to who you believe you are. If you want to be great in all aspects of your life, starting thinking of yourself as one with greatness within and manifest the power of your mind.
There is no perfect time to chase your dreams, the time is always now. Stop waiting and get to work. Never allow waiting to become an habit, live your dreams and take risks, life is happening right now. You are under no obligation to be the same person you were a month, a year, or a day ago. You have the right to grow and give no apologies. Make your happiness and personal growth a priority in your life. The more you take care of yourself, the more you can take care of others. Stop waiting for the stars to align because you will be waiting forever. Be fearless, be bold, be persistent, and be prepared. Stay positive, work hard, and make it happen! You are not a waiter, you are a creator.
Develop your Entrepreneurial Mindset
In this era of massive technological innovation and market disruption, you cannot neglect developing and nurturing an entrepreneurial mindset. The question, is what are you going to do, what are you going to create, what new ideas are you going to bring to the marketplace that would not only be beneficial to you, but to the whole world? Developing an entrepreneurial mindset might be hard, but is it really? To begin on your entrepreneurial journey, you have to be keen into solving problems that can impact the world; these areas can be in sectors of your career or your life passions. Just one brilliant idea is all you will need. In developing an entrepreneurial mindset, just feast on this quote by Swami Vivekananda,
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life. Think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success”.
The easiest way to begin your entrepreneurial journey is to try to come up with at least 10 ideas a day. Trust me, you can do it because you have greatness within. From ideas, comes planning and then action, nothing will come to fruition without massive action and implementation. In regards to your career, you must continue to adapt, innovate, try new things, and acquire new skills. Don’t forgot there was once a Blockbuster, but we all do Netflix now!
Massive action is the name of the game, you have to get off the sidelines and get in the game. In the sidelines, you see no action and can make no contribution. You have got to get in! Never allow waiting to become a habit, live your dreams and take risks because life is happening right now. Life keeps going, you cannot remain stagnant and rest in a state of complacency. You should never get too comfortable and always strive to take massive action. If you are not where you want to be, that should be enough motivation to take massive action and make a change. Massive results come only from those taking massive action, you only live once.
The people that surround you
Like the great Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. Yes, this is totally true. If you hang out with winners, you will become a winner. However, if you hang with losers, you will become a loser. The people that surround you is really critical; many have their cliques and crews, but the question is are they moving you towards or away from your goals? You see, you want to hang out with people more successful than you, people that have bigger dreams that you, people that work harder than you. You want people around that are going to inspire you and push you to your limits and help you reach your full potential. There is no joy in living in mediocrity, you are destined for greatness! You see, there are 3 types of people that you should surround yourself with, the inspired, the excited, and the grateful. As it is said, show me your friends, and I will show you your future. Getting around the right people is the most prominent success hack in the world. You see friend, surround yourself with the dreamers and the achievers, the believers and the thinkers. Above all, the most important is to surround yourself with people who see you being great from within, because you do have greatness within! Stay away from people STILL broke, STILL complaining, STILL hating, STILL losing, STILL living in the past, STILL not growing, STILL making an excuse, STILL doing the same thing. I tell you, STAY AWAY! You are not mediocre, but you have greatness within!
