With the Power Ball jackpot soaring these days, many line up at convenience stores all across America to place their bids with the hope of cashing in on a jackpot of a lifetime. This week’s jackpot was a whopping 700 Million dollars. I ain’t gonna’ lie that’s a heck of a lot of money, surely we all can agree but how many place the same emphasis on themselves. How many invest the same amount of energy into their own success and the fulfillment of their deepest dreams and aspirations? All over the globe there are people sleep walking. I like to call them the walking dead because they are physically alive but their dreams have died a long, long time ago. If you are going to bet on anything in this world, you must absolutely bet on yourself.
“It all starts with a dream”
Everything begins with an idea. The light bulb started as an idea. The airplane started as an idea. In fact every incredible creation we see today started as an idea in someones mind. It all began with a dream. A dream can never become anything more unless it includes intentional action. Just one small step a day can amount to something incredible. All of those innovative inventions were not a product of happenstance. It all traces back to a dream that was acted upon. Every single one of us has the power to create. We were endowed with an imagination that has the power to engineer almost anything. But why do so many of us leave this earth without truly leaving our marks? I believe it’s because many of us do not believe we are enough. Many do not believe they have what it takes to make an impact in a big, big way.
“You are worth the Investment”
If there is anyone worth the investment, it would certainly be you. Yes, you. From the moment you were conceived you were worth it. Purpose to not let another day go by without really sitting down and thinking about what kind of impact you want to make in the world around you. There are a lot of people who have incredible ideas that never come to fruition because they didn’t make the proper investment in themselves. Next time you walk through your job or community, I want you to observe everyone around you. I guarantee you will spot someone who wants more for their lives but has not taken the next step because of fear and self doubt. All of the people who have done incredible things in our world are not any more special than you are. The difference between the massively successful and those who never quite get to where they want to be in life, is simply how they think. You have to reprogram your mind to believe that you are worth it and that you can achieve anything you put your mind to.
“The Take Away”
The coolest thing about life is everything you open your eyes you have an opportunity to begin afresh. Today, think about the idea’s, dreams and aspirations you’ve placed on the shelf. Choose to invest into your self today. Learn a new skill or start that project you’ve always wanted to start. All it takes is one small action a day and over time you will do what you’ve always wanted to do. You’ll become who you have always wanted to become. It takes dedication, heart and focus but you can do it. If you have a dream, it deserves to become a reality. Remember the lottery is nice, but you are worth so much more.
