Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, And Nobody
-----Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.
Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.
I know that for many, at one point in time you felt like you could conquer the world. Then, life settled in and all those dreams got replaced with bills in your mail box. If that is you, let me make a few tiny suggestions to propel you in the right direction. The first is to surround yourself with people that are seeking greatness. Author and motivational speaker Jim Rohn rightly teaches that, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with."
The second suggestion is to read.
No that is not a typo. Fill your mind with new thoughts. Get inspired! I always tell people that the only way to fill a broken vessel is to continually fill it. You gotta find ways to spark your creative juices in life and the best way is to find something interesting and read. Before I move on, let me add this caveat. I know that for some reading is just drudgery. You'd rather pave my driveway on a hot, humid August afternoon. For you, I'd suggest a seminar or a video series. The same principle applies, it's just a matter of how you achieve gathering new information. Years ago, a sage told me, "Anthony, if you want there to be a significant difference between the person you are today and the person you will be in 10 years, it will be via the books you read and the people you surround yourself with." I can testify to that truth as I am a living illustration of implementing both.
Finally, you might be thinking this is a bit too daydreamish and far fetched. I say you are correct. But is there a better way to live? I believe Les Brown summed it up best when he uttered these famous words, "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
Go for greatness my friend!
