Do Something Now Today
I am sure you personally are the go-getter and living your life to the max. But to everyone else, you can do more. We have many constraints on our daily life, but most are self-imposed. Write down the few things you really want to do in life, big things. Start today!
I almost always start with a book or two or more to give myself a good background in anything new. Then I like to ask others who have been there before. And if you don’t know where to start, then get a book on how to start.
The Ripple Effect
There is so much potential in the world. If everyone did a little more just to improve themselves the ripple effect would be overwhelming. There are probably other books on this, but Connected by Nicholas Christakis is a very good book discussing this.
“Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.” – Dalai Lama
Be a millionaire?
No, you don’t have to be a millionaire or have that goal to have a tremendous impact in the world. But if you want that I guarantee it is within reach. There are many ways to become a millionaire, but starting your own business is the overwhelming way self-made people do it. You might check out my book. Good luck!
