“That is not Going to Happen”
People sometimes say that you should think realistically.
People sometimes say that we need to think within our limits
People sometimes say that they could have done the same thing you accomplished, if only they worked harder.
“Self-esteem is the foundation of all success” — Dan Lok
People will always talk. The more success you have and experience, the more that people will talk.
At one point or another, most people think that they are inadequate.
At one point or another, most people feel they are undeserving
At one point or another, most people experience success at some level
But, are we good enough? Are we deserving of success? How much success?
As we live life, we will second guess ourselves. But, we are all worthy of success. We are all worthy of success.
The most successful people thrive when they attain success because they know what it will feel like.
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve” — Napoleon Hill
Why is this important?
To experience our potential, we should dream big.
God created each of us with an innate purpose. An innate God-given purpose.
We are all unique, but we all dream.
How much are we dreaming? What do we think is a big enough dream?
“In the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.” — Lewis Carroll
Why not dream?
Where do we get if we do not dream?
If we do not dream, if we do not relentlessly pursue our dreams, how much worse off is the world?
If we do not chase our dream, what happens?
What happens if we do chase our dream? And we attain it?
“Riches may not bring happiness, but neither does poverty” — Sophie Irene Loeb
We might never reach our goals. We may never see our vision comes to fruition.
Maybe God had a different path for our lives.
Maybe we did not work hard enough to achieve our vision.
Maybe we did achieve our vision but we never realized that we had.
But… what if we do see our vision come to fruition.
Would the world not be a better place?
Our vision is never just about us. No matter what it is, other people are impacted. Other people are affected.
Hopefully, they will be impacted positively.
Other people will appear to support you, but, many will stop supporting you after awhile.
If you succeed, what happens to other people?
“People are like crabs in a bucket. If you put a bunch of crabs in a bucket, you don’t have to put a lid on the bucket to keep them from escaping. Because if a crab starts climbing up, the ones on the bottom will ALWAYS pull the climbing ones down to their level.” — Dan Lok
Many people live like this.
Many believe that because they cannot (or will not) achieve their vision, you cannot either.
“There are two ways to get the tallest building in the city, build your own higher or knock down the buildings around you.”
We all have tremendous potential.
“The things that make us different, those are our superpowers” — Lena Waithe
We must understand and embrace what makes us uniquely who we are.
Only then will we know what we can give to this world.
Sometimes what we can give to the world takes time. Sometimes it takes years and years of work.
Warren Buffett attained 99% of his wealth after the age of 53.
Morgan Freeman had his first lead role after the age of 50.
If our vision has God’s blessing, He can make it happen. He can provide a door of opportunity and we can continue our relentless action and make our vision come to fruition.
“One does things that will be meaningful and convincing one day, but which sometimes requires years of waiting” — Nicolas Bos
