Thoughts become things.
If you let your mind go wild, you will find yourself following what others are wanting you to follow.
“A man is what he thinks about all day long.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
The greatest gift is the gift of personal opinion. This is not about right or wrong. It’s about creating your own opinion.
Too many people end up taking what others are saying as the only way to build their opinion.
When you build your opinion, you need to be true to your values. When you are true to your values, then you can build the opinion that is really yours.
We shape our reality with our thought, speak and action.
“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”
– Peace Pilgrim
If thought is powerful, you need to realize that speaking and taking action are much more.
It all start with thought. If you let it fade away without taking action, someone else will get it. Ideas are moving around from people to people until someone put them into reality.
There’s no guaranty that you’ll be the first to take action. It doesn’t matter, you need to go for it as if you were.
The first to take action usually have an edge on any others.
You can take action and change the world.
Everything you do matters. Even the small things will influence in some way.
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”
– Edward Everett Hale
You have influence, use it wisely.
If you choose to do nothing, you choose to do something. And it’s nothing. You influence as you did nothing.
“Do not waste your time on Social Questions. What is the matter with the poor is Poverty; what is the matter with the rich is Uselessness.”
– George Bernard Shaw
You don’t need to be rich to matter in the life of others.

Reality is made up with our own interpretations. What we perceive and we interpret.
“There are no facts, only interpretations.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche
Respect the opinion of everyone.
You don’t have to agree with them.
Share your opinion with people who are open to them.
When you face rejection, don’t waste your time in conflict. Respect their opinion and ask they do the same with you.
Are you living your life with passion?
“The essential conditions of everything you do must be choice, love, and passion.”
– Nadia Boulanger
What is ‘Passion’?
– An intense desire or enthusiasm for something. (Oxford Dictionaries)
Passion can be a drive when it’s in relation with a dream. As long as you take action using that drive, it can help you reach your dream.
First, you need a dream.
Do you have a dream?
If you don’t know where you’re going, how can you reach where you want to go?
If your dream doesn’t bring passion within you, then you should find a dream that is closer to your heart.
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
– Harriet Tubman
If you want more, don’t own anything.
Don’t attach yourself to things, let them go away and they will be replaced as needed.
“To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.”
Put yourself into the flow of wealth. Give and you shall get.
“As I get, I give. Giving as you get is critical. It has everything to do with being happy for yourself, and making others happy is the cause of making yourself happy, and it’s the cycle of giving and getting.”
– Russell Simmons
When you give, don’t expect to get. When you get, enjoy then give back.
Keep wealth flow.
Become a power into the flowing of wealth in the world.
Passion is the gasoline that will make your engine run.
When you do something with passion, you do it with a little something special that makes your actions better.
“The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last.”
– Nicholas Sparks
Passion is one of the key to happiness.
When you have passion for what you do, you can’t play small. You want to play as big as your dream let you create it.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
– Nelson Mandela
When you get up with a smile.
When you are happy to work.
When you are motivated to do a little more at the end of the day.
That’s when you can guess you’re on the right path.
