There’s Way Too Much Average In the World…
I see it every day. People going about their business, waking up, making the donuts, going home and doing it all over again the next morning. Many people move through life like a zombie not expecting much more of themselves than doing what is required to make it through each day. I don’t think like that. I don’t allow myself to accept the status quo and I challenge you to think the same.
Life wants to beat you into submission and most often it occurs through the words of others. People will try to convince you that your goals are not “realistic” or “practical”. When kids are young they say they want to be an astronaut or President and most people will tell them, parents included, that they should aim a little lower because there aren’t a lot of astronauts or only one person can be President. Kids then grow up seeing other people working normal jobs and they decide they will become an accountant instead of an astronaut.
We learn so much by watching the world around us and sometimes this is a bad thing. We learn to take the safe route. We learn that dream living is only for kids, not for adults. Banking is realistic. Accounting is realistic. Mid-level management is realistic. Being an astronaut, not so much. Being the CEO of the bank is not realistic. Becoming the President of the United States is not realistic.
We learn to think average and to expect average. But what if we changed the way we think and changed what it is that we expect from life?
Last night I voiced a new dream I have with Evelina and we agreed that we wanted it. So now we (I) are revolutionizing our thinking and our mental preparation to achieve our new lofty financial goals so that this new dream comes true. If I told most people what this dream is they would poo poo it so I am not telling anyone except my wife and it will stay that way.
Don’t let other people put their limitations on you. Don’t accept limits. Don’t accept average thinking. Dream big. Plan big. Prepare big. And be ready to work hard to make your dreams come true. When someone tells you it cannot be done, then dig in even harder.
Hope you have a great Wednesday friends.
