Just One Day – That’s All It Takes

“An ounce of hypocrisy is worth a pound of ambition.”     ~Michael Korda, writer and journalist~

How many books must you read before you know something?

How many audio and video messages must you hear and see before the truth can ring in your ears and shine before your eyes?

How many seminars must you attend before your life catches fire for you?

Enough is enough!

Far too often the student never graduates.  He or she spends years trying to accumulate knowledge absolutely and pauses – forever –  when things are not sparkling perfect before launching that brilliant career or business.

Just yesterday a gentleman wrote to me about being too poor to start anything.  My sentiment is that the poorer you are, the better your chance for success.  Because when you have nothing to lose but your chains, you stop being intellectual and start being desperate and practical.

How many times does an ant colony try to reach its destination?  As many times as it takes.  They may not be able to get their food or reach their destination easily, but it has been documented and witnessed by yours truly that ants will chew their way through boulders in order to reach their destination.

I think we’re all capable of a much more intelligent approach than an ant, but the ant teaches us that persistence wins.  The person who starts has much more chance of success than the person who knows it all in their head.

Get hungry and desperate to be the best you can be.  Even if you are dynamite, that belief is just an illusion.  Whatever you are is only a flyspeck of what you can potentially become before the Grim Reaper arrives.

It just takes one day to start a diet.  Call the client who keeps refusing your offer.  Go to drug/alcohol rehab to detox your body and rejuvenate your mind.  Talk to the spouse whom you’ve become estranged from and get things out in the open.

It just takes one day to take your dreams and begin to construct a life of your choosing.

You needn’t pay attention to this message, if your life is running full throttle on happiness and accomplishment.  But if it is not and you are not satisfied with what life has dropped on you, then get started in making the changes necessary for you to have what you want with whom you want whenever you want.

Age, sex, stinky parents or poverty to the extreme matter not, if you are determined to get out of your head and into the world.

What are you waiting for?  This is your day to shine…and all others that follow will be likewise.
