I was talking with my son who described a typical conversation that a dreamer (I mean goal seeker) has.
He and his brother are attending college, working towards their degree in Exercise Science. These guys are jacked!
He mentions to a friend: “I’d like to be a fitness model and even act one day. You know, like Arnold Schwarzenegger.”
His friend said: “You can’t do that, I mean that is Arnold Schwarzenegger!”
My son responds with: “He had it harder than I do and made it big; so why can’t I?.”
My son finishes our conversation with: “Dad, I know that all 4 of us (boys) are going to be millionaires.” Music to my ears 🙂
The biggest obstacle to wealth is fear. People are afraid to think big, but if you only think small, you’ll only achieve small things. ~ T. Harv Eker
My son’s perspective is exceptionally clear. No one achieves their dreams and goals overnight. It takes consistent and NEVER-ENDING effort chipping away at it on a daily basis. Then, when you achieve your goal the world looks on and remarks: “S/he is so highly favored and lucky!”
No, No, No. The achiever simply made NO EXCUSES and did WHATEVER IT TOOK to achieve their goals and dreams!
What is the definition of luck? When preparedness meets opportunity. Want some luck? GET PREPARED for the abounding opportunities!!!
How does one prepare? By reading positive, constructive materials and listening to the same. Attending training. Thinking BIG! Working hard and smart. Not by sitting, waiting and wishing.
Only YOU can ensure YOUR SUCCESS!
Reminds me of a quote use: “Argue for your limitations and they are yours” (author unknown)
Exactly – Great quote! Thanks Sean!
The following has been attributed to Thomas Jefferson, Mark Twain and Benjamin Franklin….to name a few. It really doesn’t matter who said it….it still rings true.
“The harder I work, the luckier I get.”
Another great quote! Thanks Terry!
